Are there any dudes on the team who spend a little too much time in front of the mirror? Stephen Curry: We used to have one, Toney Douglas was like that. He’s not on the team anymore, but he’d spend an hour getting dressed. For the most part everybody’s pretty normal. Andre Iguodala probably has the most extreme style day to day. He’s the guy that stands out. We don’t have too many guys feeling themselves.
While Douglas and Brown have already signed contracts to play in China next season, they both still have the ability to sign with the Lakers. Yet Douglas’ agent, David Falk, told USA TODAY Sports that the 28-year-old point guard still intends on playing with the Jiangsu Dragons on his one-year deal.
After missing out on LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in July, the Lakers held a free agent workout Tuesday in Los Angeles. The workout included forward Michael Beasley; big men Dexter Pittman, Greg Stiemsma, and Daniel Orton; and guards Bobby Brown, Toney Douglas, Ben Hansbrough and Malcolm Lee, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
Two months ago, Toney Douglas was playing for an NBA title with the Miami Heat. Two months from now, Toney Douglas will be playing in China with the Jiangsu Dragons in Nanjing, China. The deal is reportedly worth $1 million with no victory bonuses.
After signing Aaron Brooks, the Bulls no longer are in talks with Toney Douglas. They do plan on signing at least one and possibly two players to veteran minimum contracts. Their targets are one more big man for depth and a wing.
“No matter what, if he passes you the ball and you miss a shot, he doesn’t get mad,” Douglas said. “He’s like, ‘It’s alright, OK, shoot the next one, have confidence.’ The best player in the world saying that to you, that’s a great feeling. Knowing that he believes in you, and he has confidence in you.”
That was all Toney Douglas had played in his two weeks since joining the Heat, acquired to fill the roster spot previously occupied by the popular Joel Anthony. Now, on Feb. 11 in Phoenix, the journeyman guard would be starting for the two-time defending champions against the upstart Suns, pressed into action because Dwyane Wade had suffered a midday migraine. He was anxious to make an impression. The Heat’s leader sensed he needed some validation, so he offered three words: “Be you, Toney.” That’s what it took to settle Douglas’ stomach. That’s not where LeBron James stopped. Every time Douglas played, over the final few weeks of the season, James made sure to make him feel comfortable and valuable. Douglas quickly got a handle on James’ leadership style, which was largely “by example every day, in practice, in the locker room, on and off the court; he doesn’t cheat the game.”

With Oden looking like he can be a contributor, the Heat sent veteran center Joel Anthony to Boston last week as part of a three-team deal that brought guard Toney Douglas to Miami. But people around the league think the Heat are still looking to make another deal, for a wing, before the trade deadline.
Ethan J. Skolnick: Maybe I was wrong about Toney Douglas. Riley says Toney Douglas was “always on the radar.”
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have completed a three-team deal with Golden State and Miami. The Celtics have acquired center Joel Anthony, a conditional future Philadelphia first round draft pick, Miami’s 2016 second round draft pick and cash considerations; Miami acquires guard Toney Douglas and Golden State acquires guard Jordan Crawford and guard/forward MarShon Brooks.
The trade will save the Heat about $7.7 million in salary and luxury taxes this season and frees them on the $3.8 million they owed Anthony for next season. Depending on the Heat’s salary-situation for next season, this is a deal that could end up saving them more than $15 million in salary and luxury taxes for a player who played just 37 minutes this season.
