RT @TonyReali: On Delonte West. Mental health doesn’t discriminate. How we address it does. We all need to have a more realistic view of how we fall, so we can fall better. Because how we treat our most vulnerable is also a measure of who we are-and that can always be better. https://t.co/lETnMJv6fa
It was a really moving event. Honored to have been there.
David Stern's memorial today at Radio City Music Hall was filled with wonderful storytelling from the speakers. They told poignant, funny, honest stories. F-bombs were dropped and Earvin "Magic" Johnson had tears, saying "I'm going to miss my angel." https://t.co/faNDj0P4SO
RT @N_Jensen1995: Don't make a move this deadline, logistically until LeVert/Prince's extensions kick in, you barely have the assets for a tentpole star. That doesn't move the needle or saves the season. Revisit this in the final weeks of June. Not now.
RT @brooklynnets85: People get too sensitive when you bring up trades. We’ll obviously be very good with KD. I want to be title favorite tho. I want to be aggressive is something is out there. You only get a KD level player once every 50 years at most
This trade is now official. Sacramento has 14 second-round picks over the next seven drafts. 2020 (4) 2021 (3) 2022 (1) 2023 (1) 2024 (2) 2025 (2) 2026 (1)
Signing restriction for Wenyen Gabriel has been lifted. Here is a reminder of the trade that will happen today: POR: Ariza, Gabriel and Swanigan SAC: Bazemore, Tolliver and 2 future 2's * POR creates a $7.2M and $1.7M trade exception * Tax bill is now $9.65M ($6.3M over)
The idea of “wait to see what it’s like with KD before trades,” is good in THEORY. But in REALITY, when teams deal good/great players, the dealing team controls the timeline. If you say “wait for us to see it with KD,” they will likely deal to someone else.
Claxton conditioning is two fold. On one hand more regular minutes will help him there. On other, you see why Kenny can't play him 30 minutes a night with how he was breathing in 2Q - that's a recipe for hamstring pulls and other injuries when body overcompensates/overdoes it
I LOVE Nic Claxton's skillset. So unique. That said, got to slow down on him being a steal or a proven contributor. He's played non garbage time minutes in like 7 games, and been a factor in like 3-4 of those games. Need to see more. Thybulle: that's a steal. Night in/out
What each team currently owes toward the luxury tax: * GSW- $14.99M * POR- $9.65M * MIA- $6.65M *OKC- $2.3M * HOU- $372K Second lowest in projected distribution ($680K) to teams below the tax. The 2016/17 season ($507K per) when the cap/tax spiked was the lowest.
