John Wall a sneaker free agent

Wall will be an unrestricted sneaker free agent this summer, after the season concludes. The adidas “match clause” will have expired, and Wall will be free to sign with any brand of his liking. Unsurprisingly, Wall has been spotted literally never in adidas off-court this fall, even wearing Retro Jordans from time to time, and practicing in Kobe Xs. Tonight, for the first time, he wore the Nike Kobe X on court in a game, apparently citing “footwear issues” with his JWall 2 signature shoe. “My main focus is just play basketball,” Wall said when asked by the Washington Post after shoot-around earlier this month. “I let my agents and marketing team and them negotiate and talk.”

Shabazz Muhammad never thought he was going to be dealt before last week’s NBA trade deadline, but the Timberwolves forward at least felt wanted whenever his name came up. “There’s a lot of teams that have been coming up and have been interested in me,” Muhammad said, “so I know that’s a pretty good thing.” Particularly as he enters restricted free agency this offseason.

“But right now I’m focused on being a Wolf and happy to continue being one,” he said. That’s a similar approach to the one Tom Thibodeau is taking. The Wolves coach and president of basketball operations said a decision on Muhammad is “down the road.” “We’re positioned great in terms of what we have for cap space, where we are with our team,” Thibodeau said. “We have to work like crazy the rest of the way, and we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”

So for now, Chandler gets it. With Phoenix struggling, he understands why management wants to get a long look at Len (age 23) and Williams (24) — both restricted free agents at season’s end — in the post. He understands that while Chriss’ missed foul shots hurt the Suns on Sunday, they likely will help the rookie forward in the long run. And despite sitting on the bench – something that probably won’t last the rest of the season – Chandler understands he still can make his mark. As a leader. And on the practice court, where, the center says with a smile, “I’m still kicking their ass.”

Including the playoffs, Kevin Durant has played 790 career NBA games. Scott Brooks was his head coach for 621 of them, a 78.6 percent chunk of the Hall of Fame pie, helping form Durant from a young talent into a generational superstar. Durant’s 791st career NBA game comes on Tuesday night in his hometown of Washington D.C. But it’ll be the first game of his career against Brooks, who is thriving in his first season as the Wizards coach. “It’ll definitely be good to see him, playing in front of my friends and family,” Durant said. “Seeing Scotty will be nice.”
