“It was the first practice. I had hamstring pull, third-degree hamstring pull, so I couldn’t participate in Summer League or the first practice. “We were there and I was sitting on the sideline. KG was just cussing at everybody. And when I say cussing at everybody, he was cussing at everybody including Kevin McHale. He was saying all kinds of ‘Come on out here and I’ll beat you down, too! You can’t guard me.’ Disrespectful stuff and Wally [Szczerbiak] subbed out, and I walked over to him, and I said, ‘Wally, does he do this all the time? Is this allowed?’ He said, ‘This is KG, bro. He does this every day.’ “KG is the second-best trash talker next to Gary Payton.”

Hornets add Julyan Stone

Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has signed guard Julyan Stone. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Stone (6-6, 200) has appeared in 47 career NBA games (two starts) over three seasons with Denver (2011-13) and Toronto (2013-14), averaging 1.3 points, 1.1 assists and 1.0 rebounds in 7.0 minutes per contest. He most recently joins Charlotte after a stint with Reyer Venezia Mestre of the Lega Basket Serie A in Italy, appearing in 26 games and helping the squad to a 2017 Serie A Championship. Prior to his time with Reyer Venezia Mestre, Stone played with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA G League last season, seeing action in 33 games (31 starts), averaging 7.9 points, 8.6 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 34.7 minutes per contest.

But questions remain about Thomas, who was hobbled by a serious hip injury during the most recent playoffs and is still set to undergo tests before training camp to establish his status. What’s more, the fact that he infamously called for the Celtics to “Back up the Brink’s truck” next summer when he’s eligible for a huge payday means Cleveland will have to eventually find clarity on this front. For James’ part, he’s on record as a huge fan of Thomas. “(The Celtics) got a clear-cut star and that’s Isaiah,” James said in late December. “The notion that they don’t have a star I think is ‘fugazi’ as Donnie Brasco would say. Earlier I was watching the movie. So, they’re a good team for a reason and it starts with the head of the snake and that’s Isaiah.”
