Happy for Collison, though, who gambled that a year in LA would rehabilitate his value. He was right.

Mike Prada

If the Kings are worried about Isaiah Thomas’ defense, Darren Collison doesn’t exactly solve that.

Great point by @Tom Ziller: considering the market, $9.5/year for DeRozan is now a steal. bit.ly/1mWWiDL

I get why teams are trying to poach Dragic. If Lowry got $12 million and is considered fairly paid, Dragic is surely worth more next summer

John Wall

Feel good to be home...DC !!

Mike Prada

He’s leaving? RT @Chris Broussard: Source: Kyle Lowry resigning with Toronto

Mike Prada

Given that teams have to tie their cap space up for three days just to make an offer, it’s a wonder anyone sends RFAs offer sheets.

Michael Lee

Thabo Sefolosha started at SG for OKC past 5 seasons. Shot > 40% from 3 for 2 seasons but had a down year last year; lost job in WCF

Michael Lee

The dots have been connected. Thabo Sefolosha has indeed met with the #wizards, source confirms. WAS covering bases in case Ariza leaves

Michael Lee

Thabo might be a different story RT @Vincent Ellis Yeah, I went to the Verizon Center calendar, lol. Monroe is in DC a lot.

Sefolosha obviously isn’t totally inspiring, but shot 44 and 42 percent from three in the two years before this and will come cheap.

Ben Standig

Monroe RT @Greg Monroe: Put "sources say" in front of somethin and ppl believe. The "source" might be a hot pocket pack yall dont even kno...lol

Zac Boyer

Totally forgot yesterday was one-year anniversary of @john_keim joining @PostSports. They always say Year 2 is better than the first!

Monroe repped by Falk. Thabo has same agent as Gortat RT @gene_wang So I'm told Greg Monroe, Thabo Sefolosha are at Verizon Center. #Wizards

Ben Standig

FWIW - Just informed that free agents Greg Monroe & Thabo Sefolosha are here at VC. Here to watch Mystics-Fever, don't know.

Ben Standig

Bummer that Kenner League teams can no longer load up with frosh from one school especially since Hoyas and GW have 5-player classes.

Mike Prada

Anyway, as long as we can be reasonable humans about this Lin thing and not get OUTRAGED, it’s a funny story.

Mike Prada

Ok RT @jft87: @Mike Prada Of all the horrid things going on in the world at any moment, Jeremy Lin's plight is not one of them.

Mike Prada

It’s an awkward situation for the Rockets, of course. But I’m just saying that, as a human being, seeing someone else in your number hurts.

Mike Prada

I’m not taking any sides, but I understand why Jeremy Lin might feel disrespected by what the Rockets did.

Ben Standig

I'd settle for someone selling girl scout cookies. RT @JPFinlayCSN: uh, neither. It's pro sports. You looking for a bake sale?

Ben Standig

Not saying that's makes what the Rockets did was cool, no, no. But Larry Drew's just chilling and then BOOM. No word, no nothing.

Ben Standig

FWIW, I'd say Bucks. It's been clear for months the Rockets might dump Jeremy Lin in pursuit of Melo. Everyone involved knows this.

Ben Standig

Worse move: Bucks wooing Kidd as coach while they had a coach or the Rockets wooing No. 7 Melo while No. 7 Lin is on the roster?

Chris Miller

Kenner League update: Copeland, Peak playing for the Tombs. Campbell, White on Clydes. No more all-frosh team. #hoyas

Michael Lee

Or was that a failed coup? RT @Charles F. Gardner Lasry: "For us to be able to get Jason in, for him to coach in Milwaukee, was a real coup..."

Mike Prada

Utah also certainly has the cap setup to overpay Hayward. Burke, Exum, Kanter on rookie deals. Tough decision.

Mike Prada

Problem is, what can the Cavs sign and trade back? Also, it sort of restarts Utah’s rebuilding timeline. Tough spot.

Mike Prada

Just me, but given what Utah has in Exum, I’d look to sign and trade Hayward if he’s getting a max offer sheet.

Andrew Sharp

So if there are any billionaires out there that want to be buddies, hit me up. I'm pretty terrible at golf, but I can make good sandwiches
