Robert Covington’s new contract was far from his mind during the 76ers’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. But around 2 a.m. Eastern time Thursday, a little more than an hour after the game, he reflected on the deal that he is about to sign. “I’m blessed to be here another four years,” Covington said while getting dressed. “It’s an opportunity that I have been looking forward to. I developed here for four years, and now, I’m going to be here for another four more.”

Jabari Parker likely leaving Bucks

Paul Henning: Take it for what it is. But, @GeryWoelfel is close to Jabari and the Parker family. This morning @1057FMTheFan he reports Jabari was “very, very close to being traded” at deadline, feels there is “slim to none” chances that Jabari is on Bucks next season. Describing it as a mutual fallout between Bucks/Jabari that is rooted in Kidd’s treatment of Jabari since he was drafted. Bucks hold the cards with Jabari’s Restricted Free Agency ability to match. But, losing Jabari for nothing would be a huge blow to this teams future.

And while Thomas sees himself as a starter, he told The Times he wouldn’t rule out returning to the Lakers in a role similar to what he has now, coming off the bench for significant minutes. “I like it here, I like the situation I’m in, the system, coaching staff,” Thomas said. “Organization’s been great to me. If things work out I would love to be here. You just never know. With free agency you’ve got to keep your options open. I have no complaints since I’ve stepped foot and put a Laker uniform on.”
“I want to be great,” Thomas said. “I want to win MVP, I want to continue to be an All-Star. Their goals probably aren’t that yet. Coming straight into the league especially at 19, 20 years old. They’re in it for the experience just to figure things out on their own. And then on top of getting to the playoffs and winning championships, I want all that and it might not be their mindset yet. But at the same time being on this team I’m trying to put that in their heads that you can do whatever you put your mind to. Why not think big?”
Storyline: Isaiah Thomas Free Agency
Zach Lowe: What [did Kemba Walker] wanna know about [potentially getting traded after the Adrian Wojnarowski report came out]? Steve Clifford: I think I was more proactive with him, just explaining to him that A) there’s no untradeable player. Go back through NBA history, and player could be traded. But B) I told him it would be very difficult to find a scenario where he could be traded. And the fact that there were rumors, which is gonna happen, is because he’s such a good player making less money than he’s worth by a lot. So of course, there were gonna be calls.

Steve Clifford: That was the first part of it. Then I know after shootaround, by the time we had gotten back to the arena that night, Michael Jordan had called him and spoke to him, and explained to him that we weren’t looking to trade him. And basically we went through the whole thing. Kemba said that Michael was very forthcoming and said, ‘Listen. If there is an unbelievable trade with Player A and Player B, and it would make our team a lot better, of course, anybody could be traded.’ But then I explained to him, ‘Look, you’re not gonna be traded. You’re gonna be here. You’re the face of our franchise.’ And I thought Kemba handled it great.

Alex Kennedy: Have you had any conversations with NBA teams [since being waived by New Orleans]? Jordan Crawford: Yeah, I actually worked out for two playoff teams recently, so I’ve been in contact. After going to them and the feedback from them was that I’m ready and I’m in shape. I’m a veteran. Because I’ve been showing how humbled I’ve been, I’ve been going to the [G League] and I did Summer League before, I don’t want people to think that I just, that I have to prove myself every time to be on a roster. I carry myself as a professional.

Storyline: Jordan Crawford Free Agency
