DJ Augustin: Let me tell you a quick story about my grandfather. Because of Hurricane Ivan, I think some people underestimated Katrina. The evacuation warnings for Katrina were still “voluntary” until the day before it hit. We almost didn’t leave. Elderly people are the most vulnerable in hurricanes but I guess they can be the most stubborn sometimes. I love my grandfather, but he’s very stubborn. When the news started talking about Katrina, he didn’t want to evacuate because the last time nothing happened with Hurricane Ivan.

New Orleans is small, so everybody in New Orleans knows everybody. I talk to people over the years since Katrina happened, and everybody has different stories of what they heard from different people. My wife, who was my girlfriend then, had a friend die because she was walking through the water, trying to get to higher ground and she fell through a drain in the ground. She drowned. There was stuff like that going on and you never heard about it on the news.

Do rotation players like DJ Augustin, Brandon Jennings and OJ Mayo also cash in? Teams will be put in the difficult situation of hitting the salary cap floor of $81 million and filling out their rosters with the most competitive personnel possible. Early projections show that the average rosters of players under contract per NBA team in 2016-17 is 10.3 players. If you think you can land a restricted free agent, think again. The summer of 2015 proved one more time that restricted free agents are hard to get. Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard agreed to terms on the first day with Chicago and San Antonio. The next prized restricted free agent, Draymond Green, agreed to terms the following day with Golden State.
