His brothers fell from the Lavar Tree, they are awful. Lonzo seems like a good kid, it’s a shame.
Looks like Toronto is taking the safe option and hiring in-house. I know that Nurse is an up-and-coming coaching prospect but is this really the thing that gets them over the top in the East?
The Toronto Raptors are hiring assistant Nick Nurse as the franchise's new head coach, league sources tell ESPN. Sides are working through details of contract now.
It worked for Phil Jackson and the Bulls!
And Pat Riley and the Lakers.
And KC Jones!
Is there a coaching option that gets them over the top? Maybe Brad Stevens.
Probably not, but that just shows that firing Casey didn't really solve anything. They need to revamp that team, not make a lateral coaching change.
The NBA is the best
The Spurs may have a deal with Indiana for Kawhi Leonard, sources say."
How long is the helicopter flight from Akron to Indy?
That’s a tweet from 2011
Well that only lends credence to the rumor
I'm guessing that deal happens. Or happened.
It could still happen. Woj playing the long game.
They've had 7 years to disconfirm... and yet, what? Nothing.
Seems like where there's smoke...
Well, that deal *did* happen. Pacers drafted Kawhi.
And got GEORGE HILL for him. Who just lost in the NBA Finals with Lebron. Which might cause Lebron to bolt to LA. AND JOIN KAWHI!
So it's all true!!
Fun Fact. Terry Rozier has similar stats as the George Hill that Pop traded for the 15th pick Kawhi.
Rudy Gay declined his player option to return to the Spurs.
Rudy Gay has a terrible agent. He turned down a $14MM option from the Kings to sign with the Spurs for $8.4MM. Now he is turning down is $8.8MM option for next year and I doubt he gets anything close to that on the open market.
In another example of a player overestimating his worth, Jamal Crawford turned down his $4.5MM option with the Wolves to become a free agent. He seems like a veteran min guy to me. Maybe he wants a shot at a title.
It was a two year MLE deal, I suspect the MLE might come in higher next year.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cavaliers will not know what LeBron James intends to do this summer when they execute their draft plan Thursday, numerous sources told cleveland.com.
James has until June 29th to exercise his $35.6 million player's option on his contract for next season, and if he lets it pass then he's an unrestricted free agent who could still return to Cleveland.
In other words, James has all kinds of time to figure out where he wants to play next season. General manager Koby Altman, who will run his first draft on Thursday, has about four days to decide about his No. 8 pick.
According to sources, the Cavs' front office and James' camp have been in contact over the phone and in person, though there has been no meeting with James present, nor has the been any real dialogue as far as James' future is concerned.
Because the superstar himself doesn't know.
The Cavs have been signaling (strongly, in some cases) that they're looking to upgrade their team from the group that was swept out of the Finals this month, whether James stays or goes.
They are taking calls from teams looking to move up in the draft via trade, and are seeking proven NBA vets whose presence would both improve the roster and be enticing to James.
Cleveland has in fact inquired about Kawhi Leonard's availability from the Spurs, among others, and league sources suggested Charlotte's Kemba Walker could be in play for the Cavs.
Because of league rules, Cleveland must make its pick on Thursday, but could trade it immediately or sign the player and then wait 30 days to trade him -- like the Cavs did when they drafted Andrew Wiggins No. 1 overall in 2014 and traded him for Kevin Love.
You are not painting the complete scenario in Sacramento. Gay publicly stated that he was going to decline his $14m option prior to the start of the season when he tore his Achilles. He knew he'd take a hit for the opportunity in San Antonio as the Kings still wanted him back on a long-term deal once he declined......which he refused. Gay's priority was to get out of Sacramento.
I don't see why Gay would exercise a one-year option with $8.8m guaranteed when he'll surely sign one with multiple guaranteed years even if it's the MLE. This is key rotation FA type money......why would you feel he will be shut out of this market?
Gay only got the MLE last summer and then had a very subpar year. I was imagining the market being even worse for him this summer, but maybe I'm overestimating the effect of the lack of cap space out there. I could see the lower tax payer's figure for him, but he doesn't strike me as a full MLE guy anymore. He barely put up 20MPG last year on a team that was starving for solid wing minutes after Simmons departed and Kawhi got injured.
I don't see how he was subpar as he was at essentially his career numbers, He shot poorly from 3 but higher from 2 and had the best rebounding numbers of his career. I think we all know what Gay is by now......a first/second guy off your bench. The only Spur who played more than 26.7 mpg was LMA and when eliminating Kawhi they has 8 players between 19 and 26.7 mpg. With Pop's 10-man rotation I don't know why you'd expect your backup wing to exceed 21 a game.
