Still waiting to find out exactly what's what with Rashard Lewis and the Mavs - but that's my understanding - contract is nulled out
It looks like Rashard Lewis didn't pass his physical (knee) with the Mavs and will be a free agent again
Berke Breathed's compendium "Classics of Western Literature" was supposed to be ironically titled but it's actually accurate.
For all you young bucks out there that may not know, Bloom County is one of the greatest things that ever happened to the human race.
Jack White probably cares a lot about baseball's unwritten rules.
Of course Cavs are collecting non-guaranteed players for trade . . .
Cavs are currently over the salary cap - though they could get back under if they needed to by cutting non-guaranteed
Indication is that Wiggins will sign his contract and during that 30 day no-trade window Cavs & Wolves will reach a deal in principal.
Sad to hear that Robert Newhouse has died. Prayers go out to his family and friends.
Now, Monroe may or may not have any interest in playing for the Hawks. You can see as a Falk client his camp is staying super quiet.
Facebook keeps suggesting I like Facebook on Facebook but I'm skeptical
Source says Cleveland package likely to be focused on Wiggins, Bennett, & 1st round pick.
Told by league source that the Cavs will not take Barea & Martin in a Love deal. Indication is Love might be only piece sent.
Houston Rockets' Nick Johnson -- 42nd overall pick -- will sign a fully guaranteed, three-year rookie contract, league source tells RealGM.
Jason Kirk tweeted that it's a power move. David Fucillo tweeted that it's pretty awful.
RIP Robert Newhouse. One of my first football memories is how exciting it was in SB XII when Newhouse threw TD to Golden Richards
I still can't believe the Lakers were able to sign Ed Davis to a 2-year, $2 million deal (with a player option next season). That's a steal.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tweeted tonight he's in Indy to start offseason sessions with Roy Hibbert.
Derek Norris could probably win a casting call to play Paul Bunyan. Or they're related. Not sure which is more likely.
The trio of Bird, Abdul-Jabbar, and Hibbert had dinner tonight at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Indy tonight.
The Easy View XT Glare commercial is my favorite spot from 1986 that is currently still on the air...
In 2006, Kobe (35.4, 5.3, 4.5), LeBron (31.6, 7 boards, 6.6 assts), D-Wade (27.2, 5.7, 6.7)...and Steve Nash won MVP that season
Earl Thomas, who's sitting courtside, could appreciate the hit Alysha Clark accidentally put on Camille Little in pursuit of a loose ball.
Larry Bird said in June that he wanted Roy to work with one of the greats. Appears he's working w/ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, beginning tomorrow.
Jazz have officially met their quota of people we don't know.
Altuve jumps on Kazmir immediately with a single on the 1st pitch, adds to his hit count, but gets erased tryin to go for 2nd on the play.
But at this stage, very few teams have cap space to throw out a max offer for Monroe. Now, if they want him, sign-and-trades is best route
For those asking re: Monroe: If you think teams have no interest in him bc you haven't heard of offers, you're crazy. (Cont)
Someone famous makes a controversial comment + people make their own interpretation = controversy. Rinse, repeat.
Heyo Paleo preachers, they didn't have nothin else to eat. They woulda eaten Rotel too. Go full Paleo and fight a saber-tooth beast
I'd be happy with Nelson at the RMLE.
Local resident Mo Williams has also had a face-to-face sitdown with Dallas this month as Mavs try to secure one more vet PG for backcourt
Mavs still have their $2.7 million room exception to offer Jameer Nelson and are hopeful of completing a deal with the veteran point
ESPN sources say Mavs will be hosting free-agent point guard Jameer Nelson in Dallas for a face-to-face visit Thursday
And, I know it's too soon to really know what impact Lewis's injury will have ... doesn't mean it doesn't bother me.
I actually started kicking the idea of Michael Beasley, wondering if he'd take the minimum ... Rashard Lewis did this to me.
Donald's lawyer: “Could you get to trial in 6-8 months? Possible but you’re looking at a year or so before you have a trial on that issue."
Carrick Felix basically did the Junior Jazz tour traveling around to play Utah's junior colleges while at CSI.
Was looking over the PFs still out there that might fit Mavs desire for shooting (b/c I find I want to shed Lewis), and see almost nothing.
Los Angeles traffic is not a myth. It is an actual phenomena that sucks the life force out of you.
Jeff Bzdelik has 17 years of NBA experience,including Denver, Miami, Washington & New York.Bzdelik also was Carmelo Anthony's 1st NBA coach
Louisville and Minnesota are working on finalizing a home and home series starting next year at Louisville. Pitino bragging rights.
Ex-Nuggets head coach Jeff Bzdelik is expected to sign a contract to become an assistant coach with the Grizzlies tomorrow, a source said.
Hearing Grizzlies boss Dave Joerger is in advanced talks to hire former Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik as an assistant for his staff in Memphis
Cavs summer: Hire GM! Fire coach! Hire coach! No 1 pick! Trade 5 guys! Sign 2! Trade picks! Trade $$! Get $$! LeBron James!!!! Kevin Love??
the quesarito make you crap your pants or nah?
Hunter Pence hit the ball to the moon & it still looked awkward as hell.
Final: Sterns Trailer 120, T&T Coast 113. That's 8-1 and one of two No. 1 seeds in next week's playoffs for Sterns.
Cavs can use a trade exception to acquire other assets for Love or possibly in separate deal to take on $ .
Isn't there something wrong when a high school QB transfers in search of playing time?
One Utah tie for new Jazz player Carrick Felix? His College of Southern Idaho Golden Eagles went 2-2 against SLCC in 2009-10. Now you know.
Just learned the passing of one of my favorite PR media men ever in college athletics Jim " Schneids" Schneider from Michigan. RIP. Wow.
So Dungy clarifies he's not anti-gay just anti-distraction. By that rationale I'm left to assume he would have opted against Jackie Robinson
Mid Cavs take on Martin & Barea that would require a matching of $21.6M. Cavs will struggle to get to that point.
Andrew Nicholas coming back in with 2:48 left for Sterns Trailer, which leads 112-108
Lakers have chosen to celebrate my birthday tomorrow by introducing Ed Davis at 11am
DHarris' verbal deal was yanked off the table in '13 when he needed toe surgery. RLewis signed his deal Sat - and now he needs knee surgery.
2013-14 minutes played by 4 guys in the CLE-UTA trade: Felix 38, Lucas 591, Murphy 62, Thomas 63.
End of three: Sterns Trailer 95, T&T Coast 85
Life is too short to play zone
Cavs signed Joe Harris to a 3-year deal - 3rd season non-guaranteed - $2.7 mil total
Donald Sterling has filed another lawsuit in Superior court today against Shelly and NBA. His attorney said a ruling may not come for years.
Per CBA FAQ entry referenced in comments, Monroe would have to approve any trade after signing QO since it would require forfeiting Bird rts
I was incorrect that Monroe's bird rights would transfer in the event he was traded after signing QO.
This new lawsuit is in addition to the federal lawsuit Donald Sterling already filed vs the NBA. His attorneys filed it Tuesday after court
One of those nights at JSBL where Jerome Hubbard's shot selection has absolutely no chill. None.
Donald alleges he is the sole shareholder of LAC, the corp that runs the Clippers. Once he revoked the trust, the shares reverted to him
DePaul announced that DeJuan Marrero transferred to Chipola (FL) College
I stand over that thing sweatin like i'm defusing a bomb just cause i don't wanna have to start over lol
FYI: Of the 3 non-guaranteed contracts Cavs got from Jazz today...Wolves had some interest in Erik Murphy when Bulls waived him last year
That future second-round pick the Jazz acquired from Cavs is a 2015 second-round pick, per news release from Jazz.
I gotta concentrate so hard just to check out at Walgreens. They got like 50 questions on that friggin touchpad....
It's not known yet when Rashard Lewis will have the surgery, how long he'll be sidelined or if he'll be recovered when training camp opens.
Jazz has acquired Carrick Felix, 2015 2nd round pick & cash from the Cavs in exchange for John Lucas III, Erik Murphy & Malcolm Thomas
Donald Sterling filed a lawsuit in Superior court Tuesday vs Shelly & NBA alleging corporate fraud
Jazz admit the trade: Utah acquired Carrick Felix, a 2015 2nd round pick, cash from Cavs for John Lucas III, Erik Murphy & Malcolm Thomas.
The pick will be a 2015 second-round pick.
Halftime: T&T Coast 64, Sterns Trailer 62. T&T led by as many as 14 in the second before Jerome Hubbard started throwing up bombs for Sterns
Cavs are operating some intense salary-capology right now, there's a bunch of smoke & mirrors but they feel Kevin Love will be at end of it
Cavs signed 2nd rounder Joe Harris of Virginia to 3-year rookie deal, league source tells RealGM. Two guaranteed years; team option on 3rd.
Former Carrick Felix coach Eric Musselman says Felix is "he never had a bad day. He is always smiling. He makes Jan and Feb practices good"
“… and if that is the only thing you have to teach him, you have an easy job … I just think that's a bogus statement," CarlEnglish said.
"I think Wiggins gets put out because he's not always super aggressive, but the kid is extremely talented ...
Morey, Presti, Hennigan, McDonough in NBA since 2007, now Dubas, 28, gets plum NHL job with Maple Leafs.
Malcolm Thomas is pissed for being dealt to the Cavaliers. He played for David Blatt in Israel. Bad fit, got cut.
Clarity: Cavs cannot trade own first-round pick for 2015, only Miami's and/or Memphis'. This because they already traded '16 pick to Boston.
End of one: T&T Coast 34, Sterns Trailer 32. Good one so far with a lot of present and former D1 and D2 talent in the mix
We're done for the day.
Dean Bonham seems like a decent guy but this is a tough spot for him to be in. Has no business on the stand. Bad look for Donald's side.
And when I say you I'm mean we, of course.
My column on everything you knew about Carrick Felix before this trade:
Dean Bonham, Donald Sterling's witness, is being torn to shreds by Pierce O'Donnell.
Jason Westrol vs. Deon Jones as we're just underway between T&T Coast and Sterns Trailer
Dean Bonham also testified that he's being paid $10,000 for his testimony and has prepared 10 hours for his testimony.
Possible Cavs may wait to sign Wiggins a little longer to have cap space to create more moves.
On cross-examination, Dean Bonham also confirms he doesn't have a high school or college degree.
Dean Bonham testified he was the president of the Denver Nuggets. He was actually the president of marketing and sales.
Easiest way to look at it - Jazz traded 3 players who weren't going to be on roster for a player who will, a 2nd rounder and a million
In the face!
Adding Love, Martin, & Barea requires even more pieces and teams because Cavs have to have help matching salaries.
Another way to look at this is they acquired $3.3M tonight in non-guaranteed money for other ventures. Choose your own adventure.
Cavs pursuit of Kevin Love always required help from 3rd team because of money. Now Cavs have more traceable pieces to incorporate in deal.
So does this mean LeBron hates Carrick Felix?
Hey, just telling you what I've been told. Don't shoot the messenger
Guys often complain no place to get haircut in SLC - that problem is over Carrick Felix was team barber at Southern Idaho
Cavs could employ the best Big 3 in basketball, still wrapping my head around that
We have a Michelle, Sasha and Malia sighting here at the Kastlee. They're sitting not to the left or right but in the middle of the crowd.
As much as anything, three non-guaranteed contracts give Cavs what one source calls, "Buying power," whether used on Love or elsewhere.
There are far too many so-called "superstars" in the NBA...we need to rethink the definition...I would say there are maybe 5 in the league.
Cavs trade Carrick Felix, 2nd rd pick, cash to Jazz for non-guaranteed deals of John Lucas, Malcolm Thomas & Erik Murphy, reports Y! sports.
But after the way the last two years have gone, I'll never say never with them on anything at this point.
There is a rule of aggregation. Cavaliers can't turn all three former Jazz players together in another deal until some time has passed.
When Brown and Jefferson sign, Nets will be at the regular season limit of 15 players under contract, so good chance they're done for summer
..which might mean that one of the players (probably Murphy) cannot be aggregated, depending on the specifics of how the deal is structured.
Anwar Zakkour of Bank of America testifies he had heard "Plan B" mentioned in meetings but didn't know or ask what it was.
It's too soon to freak out out Rashard Lewis's surgery ... but there's also not really anything positive to take from it.
If the Cavs get Love and then win a title, that had better be the end of "Love and Kyrie aren't winners because they've never made playoffs"
League sources say the Nets will be signing both Cory Jefferson and Markel Brown, which would take their roster to 15 players.
If Thompson really thinks he's a max player maybe GSW should trade him after all...
If this goes down, does everyone have to immediately halt all current and future Flip and Babcock jokes?
This Love trade better finally happen, if only because we are all running out of Love song puns.
As if that proposed Love deal isn’t enough of a heist for Wolves, they’d also unload bad contracts? Baffling.
Minnesota's been determined to unload Kevin Martin and JJ Barea in a Love deal -- no easy task for Cavs to make work without a third team.
