In a video from Bleacher Report, Drake, Durant, Thompson and James could all be seen goofing around on the field and making wisecracks. Drake took more shots at current subject-of-rap-beef Meek Mill. Thompson, a Toronto native also represented by Klutch Sports sided with James, but not before throwing a little shade about free agency (“whoever puts the offer in first … put the offer in first.”) Durant, still recovering from a season-ending foot injury, sat things out, admitting the first action he needed would come on the basketball court.

Flip Saunders: But you say luck, and maybe I say patience. I didn’t have a problem keeping Kevin into the final year of his deal and coaching him. Guys just don’t turn down the extra year and $30 million. Even though he maybe wanted to leave, I thought we still had an opportunity to re-sign him. When you are patient, you can say, “This is what we need to get something done, and if we don’t get it, we’re keeping him.” Then things kind of fell into place, with LeBron going to Cleveland and [Andrew] Wiggins becoming available. That’s when you can say “lucky.”

Colangelo: In Kevin Love’s case, he really felt bad in not being there to participate after he said he would. That was more about advice he’s getting from legal counsel and his agent. That, too, is a variable. We have no control over that. If that happens next year with one or two players and they’re out, it’s not the end of the world. We have other players. The point is with the roster we have we can take hits like that and there are other guys to step in.
