When the Suns offered Mike James a two-way contract last summer, he was intrigued. There was only one problem. “I didn’t know what they were talking about,” James said. “I never heard of such a thing in my life.”
Contract status aside, the 27-year-old rookie must relish just being in the NBA, right? “To be honest, I didn’t think about it as much as everybody else thought about it for me,” James said. “I think I just kind of played, and then this opportunity came, and I took it. I didn’t really think about, ‘Oh, I might never go’ or ‘I might never do this.’ It just didn’t bother me.”

It took two more years, but James finally made it. Phoenix signed him to a two-way, 45-day contract, but his play already has convinced the Suns that they want to keep him beyond the 45 days. General Manager Ryan McDonough told azcentral sports Friday that he hopes the team can negotiate a deal with James. Maybe then James will look back on what it took him to get here. Then again … “I don’t reflect a lot,” James said. “I probably should. Maybe when I’m retired, I can look back and say I did that and that and that.”

“Knowing what I know now and knowing what my dreams are, where I want to be, you have to take this,” Pullen said of the two-way contract. “I tell people all the time, there are three ways to the top — the escalator, elevator, stairs. Some people gets the elevator. Some get the escalator. So walk up all of the flights of stairs. The NBA is an important thing to me now. It’s a dream that I want to come true.

The Milwaukee Bucks requested waivers on Jalen Moore on Sunday, ending the forward’s two-month tenure with the team after signing a two-way contract in July.
While the announcement was something of a surprise, it was something Moore had been pondering for a while. Ultimately, it was his call to step away. Moore, who went undrafted out of Utah State, says he has been battling anxiety. However, he didn’t realize the severity of the issue until recently. During college, Moore pushed his feelings down, chalking them up to nervousness or regular stress.
Over the course of this summer, his anxiety worsened to the point where basketball, which had always been his escape, wasn’t helping anymore. Moore began to get help and received the full support of the Bucks, but he ultimately realized he needed to focus on his own well-being. “It (anxiety) was kind of running my life and I was like, ‘This is not the way I want to live,’ ” Moore said.

Anthony Davis is on his way to earning All-NBA honors this season, an accomplishment that would make him super max eligible in the summer of 2019. Based on earning All-NBA in 2016-17 and likely 2017-18 (two out of the previous three seasons), Davis would be eligible to sign a five-year $230M extension with a starting salary of $39.7M in July 2019.
The Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan has listed his home in Malibu for sale at $6.5 million. The two-story contemporary sits at the end of its own gated driveway in the guard-gated Serra Retreat neighborhood. Extensively remodeled, the house features high ceilings, wide-plank wood floors and full smart-home and security systems. Massive pocket doors open to a covered terrace for indoor-outdoor entertaining.
Eddie Sefko: Dirk Nowitzki’s quote about next season: “I would love to play next year again. But we’ll kind of see how the rest of the season plays out and how I feel in the summer. But as of now, I want to play again next year. I feel OK. I only missed one game. So the body is holding up OK”
Someday he could do both jobs. For now, the Milwaukee Bucks guard is focused on his current occupation. It doesn’t appear he’ll be switching careers any time soon. One more year in the league and Terry will reach a rare milestone in the NBA. “For sure, 100 percent, my goal is to play 20 seasons,” Terry said. “The organization understands that and I think the league is on notice.”
But he’s been around long enough to understand the business of the NBA. Off the court, he’ll stay friends with Kidd. “The dividing line is there … understanding that Coach Kidd didn’t get me the contract — the Milwaukee Bucks did,” Terry said. “I have a job to do and my job is to help them go forward in the future … continue to be a positive influence in the locker room and on the court. That’s what they signed me up to do and I’m going to see that all the way through.”
Davis put the Pelicans on his back in their 124-123 overtime victory with 45 points, 17 rebounds, five blocks and five steals — the first time in league history any player had reached those thresholds since the latter two categories were first tracked in 1973-74.
