With a large percentage of NBA players being African-American, it’s safe to assume some will consider bringing the protests to arenas starting next month. Morris and Jackson said they support Kaepernick. “With the whole Black Lives Matter stuff, it’s a major thing for me,” Morris told the Free Press. “Colin’s going to do what he’s going to do and I can agree or disagree, but for me, personally, I live in this world. I live in the U.S. I can’t take a knee on that. Things are not going right. I don’t think taking a knee is going to make it better because it’s something that’s just happening. It just brings attention. “I stand up for Colin doing that. It took a lot of balls to do that. He obviously truly believes in what he’s doing. Right or wrong, he’s standing for what he believes in and I agree with that.”

George found a place west of L.A., but Jackson thought it was a bit too extravagant. Jackson was surprised by the next development. “I thought we were going to get a place around Marina Del Rey down south (of L.A.),” the Pistons point guard said Tuesday at the team’s practice facility. “He hit me up and was like, ‘Yeah, let’s get this spot.’ “I was like, ‘Nah, we ain’t renting this.’ “Next thing I know, he is, ‘This is where we staying. I’m not renting that; I bought it.’ “I was like, ‘I’m not paying rent on that one,’ but he said, ‘Nah, man, you good.’ “He was like, ‘just come stay with me.’

While backup center Aron Baynes is the oldest player on the team — he turns 30 in December — the leadership mantle will be spread around, with veterans taking charge for summer workouts. “That’s kind of how it goes; we have to step up,” said point guard Reggie Jackson, 27, entering his sixth season. “The organization put that upon us and myself to step up this year and be an even more impactful leader and more of a voice of reason and direction for our guys. “I know I have a little more burden on my shoulders but it’s something I asked for and something I wanted. We’ll figure it out collectively.”
