Dwight Howard is in full-on savage mode this NBA offseason. Just take a look at his Twitter account. The Hornets center is tired of all the jokes made at his expense and he’s firing back. It started when one guy decided to make a joke about Howard switching teams four times over the last five years… Howard came back with a viciously offensive (and basketball themed!) momma joke.
Alex Kennedy: NBA teams that are searching for a shooter should give Xavier Silas a serious look. He’s averaging 18 points per game while shooting 42 percent from three-point range in the @NBAGLeague.
Ohm Youngmisuk: Lonzo Ball’s knee remains sore and he was unable to go through a light practice on Tuesday. It appears unlikely that Ball will play on Wednesday against OKC. Luke Walton expects Brandon Ingram to play as long as there are no setbacks with his sprained ankle after he went through 5-on-0 practice today.

Marc Stein: Most teams around the league think that the Pelicans will re-sign Cousins unless he doesn’t want to stay there. (…) I’ve heard Dallas and the Lakers… Those are teams expected to make a run at him.
Jay King: Anthony Davis did NOT want to discuss any Boston Celtics rumors. On the Woj report that he talked to front office about them, “I haven’t had that conversation with my front office.” youtu.be/Hqi1cv8ioAs
Mirotic, who must waive a no-trade clause in his contract to be dealt, said he’s leaving it all in the hands of his representatives. “I didn’t talk to [the Bulls’ front office recently],” he said. “Probably my agents are talking, so I don’t know so far what’s going on, but I know my name is going to be out there. I’m doing my job, and I’m sure they’re doing their job, and we’re both going to do what’s best for the team.”
Mark Medina: Warriors announced they won a league-high five awards at the 2018 NBA Sales and Marketing meeting. The categories: 10,000+ Full Season Tickets Award, 85%+ Service Representative Satisfaction Award, Category Performance Award, Account Performance Award, Account Growth Award
Ryan Ward: Jeanie Buss on Elgin Baylor getting a statue outside of the @STAPLESCenter: “I am thrilled that 60 years after the Minneapolis Lakers drafted Elgin, we are able to celebrate & honor him with a statue.” #Lakers
