Las Vegas Rumors
An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him … an indication he could not breathe on his own. We’re told Lamar is being airlifted from the hospital to Las Vegas for more treatment. Our sources tell us, “It’s not good.” We’re told Lamar had been partying at the ranch by himself — with no friends or entourage — and is now alone at the hospital. The ranch staff says they want to be in the room with Lamar but since they’re not allowed since they’re not family.
Former first-round pick David Harrison has verbally agreed to a deal with the semipro Las Vegas Dealers, who are also in significant discussions with ex-NBA player Royce White. The Dealers are part of the startup Amerileague, which intends to target top high school talent and well-known former NBA players.
Harrison has a contract offer for $200,000, according to his agent Zach Charles. White also has a deal on the table worth a guaranteed $200,000, league commissioner Ethan Norof confirmed to ESPN on Thursday night. “We’re excited to have David join the Amerileague and look forward to adding additional NBA talent in the near future,” Norof said. “We also plan to stay aggressive in our pursuit of the top high school prospects.”
While at Team USA Camp in Las Vegas, an interview with Sacramento Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins was interrupted by another player. Probably the only player who could slap Cousins upside the head and not immediately get a fist to the face, teammate Rudy Gay.
