“But in my experience when I was an agent, representing big guys — guards assimilate better or quicker into the NBA than big guys do, in my opinion … the speed, the strength, the rotations — it’s different. A big, young guy in the NBA — takes longer. But he’s doing fine. He’s got the right mindset.” Over three games with the D-League Warriors, Jones is averaging 2.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over 19.4 minutes per contest. “It’s gonna be hard to crack our rotation,” Myers said. “But he hasn’t played basketball in seven months He needs to play a lot more basketball. But we’re encouraged.”

Before that revelation, though, Scalabrine’s position covering the Celtics and the fact he spent a season as an assistant coach in Golden State gave his words some weight. And, unsurprisingly, they caught like wildfire, to the point where he started a group text message chain with Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and Warriors general manager Bob Myers. On Wednesday night, Scalabrine read the Globe the text he sent to Myers and Ainge. “Hey guys wanted to clarify with you two,” the message read. “Read about trade rumors three days ago. People assume that because I talk to you guys and our relationship [that there is validity]. I just talked about the trade from a basketball standpoint. Sorry that I created this situation for both of you guys. I talk about rumors every day. This one seemed to catch fire for obvious reasons.”
