Brian Robb: Doc Rivers addressing the Blake Griffin to Celtics rumors specifically on @WojVerticalNBA podcast: “Danny and I have talked twice this summer. One was about the British Open and the other was about another golf tournament. That’s about it.”
Miami has 18 players as of now. Who is going to be cut? — Nadielle. A: I would think that the guarantees given to Okaro White and Stefan Jankovic were to persuade them to eventually play for the Heat’s NBA Development League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce. And with so many guards under contract, I don’t think the odds, at least at the moment, look great for Rodney McGruder.
Von Wafer: I pray for another opportunity man. It may never come. Take that as a lesson make the most of everything u are given. Nothing is promised. Please kids don’t be like me. Wasted so much God givin talented over the years but that’s cool we moving forward and doing it Rt now. Do not stress about what you can’t control. That energy you are wasting on that could have gone towards an even bigger blessing. I’m not ashamed to get on social media and beg for an opportunity back in the nba. I don’t care about nothing just give me an opportunity

While Ranadivé stepped out for half time refreshments, Divac, wearing his Kings purple, stuck around to socialize with old friends and field a couple of questions about Cousins as well as small forward Rudy Gay. Divac played cat and mouse, initially saying that he hadn’t heard Gay’s comments. Once informed of what the veteran wing had told the media, Divac weighed in. “He has my number,” Divac told CSN California. “If I do something, I will call him. Obviously, if I didn’t call him, we didn’t do anything.”
When asked whether the Kings’ roster is set so far, the 7-footer kept his cards close to the vest. He is working the phones trying to do what’s best for his team and be it Gay or Kosta Koufos or Ben McLemore, Divac is looking for value in return, not a salary dump. “There’s always room to improve,” Divac said. “I’m happy for now, but down the road, we’re always trying to improve.”
