Now it's Amare who returns before Derrick Rose.
Joey Crawford is on the crew for Game 3 tonight. Is it possible we'll see even more technical fouls tonight than the nine in Game 2?
Taj Gibson fined $25 grand but isn't suspended for Game 3 tonight.
2nd, Bogdanovic will probably be the one FA signing for more than the minimum this summer. Will likely sign for the mini mid level exception
First, don't expect him to play in Summer League. Because of the free agent moratorium, he won't sign until just before it ends.
Couple of additional things about Bogdanovic, some of which I mentioned in the blog posts I linked to:
Good morning. Rise and shine!!!! ☀
What's good twitter.

Larry plans to move to Dallas and his son will be attending SMU.
Larry Brown is in Philadelphia currently moving out of his mansion there, which he recently sold (it was listed at $7.85 million).
Not sure what it says about me that I have no idea who Jodi Arias is. I think it's a good thing.
Denver GM Masai Ujiri won the award. 17 different executives got at least one vote.
Nets general manager Billy King finished 11th in Executive of the Year award voting. Got two second-place votes and a third place vote.

Noah: "We got punched in the mouth tonight, but we’ll be back … we’ll be back in 2 days. That game isn't going anywhere ... we'll be there."
Noah on all of those technicals for Bulls: "I would call that not keeping your cool ... not being very zen."
That 61-20 Heat run lasted 19:14 of game-time: from the 3:42 mark of the second quarter until there was 8:28 to go in the game. Amazing.
By being so controlling in the first half, the referees set this powder keg up. That said, the Bulls did not handle the situation well.
And Taj Gibson could get suspended for his verbal tirade leaving the court. The last thing the Bulls need is another man down.
The Heat are currently on a 61-20 run.
If Thibodeau doesn't yank his starters at the end of the third, I'll be surprised. Bulls need to get as much rest as possible for Game 4.
And here's another technical foul, this time on Chalmers. Rodney Mott is getting his money's worth tonight.
Jeanne Cooper R.I.P. 40 years on the Y&R
Heck of a move by Jimmy Butler. Hangs in the air to drop in the and-one, goes to the line with a chance to cut Miami's lead to four.
LeBron talked before the game about changing his free throw stroke. Now that he's 4-for-8 tonight, might have to change it again.
Oh, my mistake. Tech was actually on Nate Robinson. Still not sure why. I think that makes five technical fouls in this game.
Marquis Teague just got tossed for a second technical during the break. No idea why.
Referees are all over this one. Already been several technical fouls and a double foul called tonight.
The Bulls aren't winning on the scoreboard but they've gotten into the Heat's heads Game is getting very physical – just what Chicago wants.
Jimmy Butler is sitting for the first time since Game 5 against the Nets. Pretty surprised he came out – was sure he'd be going 48 again.
Ridiculous move by LeBron to get to the rim for a layup to close the quarter. Now 6-for-6 – all at the rim – for 12 pts. Heat 25, Bulls 20
Joakim Noah and LeBron James each get technical fouls after getting tied up and jawing at each other about it.
The crowd in Miami is usually embarrassing. But this one today is even bad for a Miami crowd. This place is still maybe half full. Maybe.
Dwyane Wade is going around to each corner of the arena to fire up the crowd. Only problem? It's maybe half-full in here at tip off.
I'm down in Miami for Game 2 of Heat-Bulls. In addition to following the Nets coaching search, will be with this series until it ends.
growing pains ;;
FWIW, P.J. got a first-place vote and one second-place vote. He actually finished ahead of Doc Rivers, Scott Brooks, Del Negro & Larry Drew
I had a vote. My ballot: First -- Erik Spoelstra, Second -- Mike Woodon, Third -- George Karl.
Order: Karl, Spoelstra, Woodson, Popovich, Vogel, Hollins. Jackson, Thibodeau, McHale, Carlesimo, Del Negro, Drew, Rivers, Brooks.
The grind do not stop.
George Karl is a runaway winner for the NBA's Coach of the Year award. P.J. Carlesimo received one first-place and one second place vote.

Be honest: you hear "Peter Rabbit" is your first thought, "Bucket Drummer"?

It was always considered a long-shot that Jackson would be interested in returning to coaching. Blog post coming soon.
Phil Jackson is not interested in returning to coaching and, thus, will not be the next coach of the Nets, a league source told The Post.
