Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham said he spoke to NBA officials and said the league is investigating two separate second-quarter incidents involving him in Sunday’s game against Golden State. Both Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green were struck in their face inadvertently by Cunningham on two separate plays. Barnes suffered a nasal fracture, a chipped tooth and had a mouth laceration that required stitches. He did not return after he left the game holding a towel to his mouth with 10:29 remaining in the second quarter. Green suffered a bloody nose after catching Cunningham’s elbow just before halftime. However, he returned to play in the second half to help spark the Warriors to a 128-122 overtime victory that extended their winning streak to 16 consecutive games. New Orleans Times-Picayune

But sandwiched between workouts this week, Barnes has added another item to his summer list: making the 40-minute drive from Oakland, where he lives, to Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters like any other Silicon Valley grunt. Facebook calls him an "extern," not an intern. Barnes isn't getting paid, and he's not taking a hungry college student's spot. But he's meeting, working with and shadowing Facebook employees this week, giving — and receiving — knowledge in the process. His presence in Menlo Park is twofold. Mashable

Facebook plans to put his feedback to good use. Allison Swope, product manager for the Mentions app, says Barnes' ideas and insights as a high-profile user this week have been so good she can't share them — her team actually plans to develop a couple into new features on the platform. Mashable
