ESPN reporting 76ers target date for MCW's return is November 13. Bulls play at Philly Nov. 7th
Success is the best revenge.

Back in Boston as movers pack up my place. Aside from the typical sundries, I ain't shipping too much to LA beyond books, a shelf and a bed.
Avery Bradley on Marcus Smart: "He plays hard every single possession. He's learning every day."

Smart showed up and got sent home.
Marcus Smart out sick from practice today.
Brad Stevens on a challenging first month of the season: "We can't get too high or too low. That's going to be huge early on."
Of course you start Julius Thomas tonight, but temper expectations. Chargers allowing fewest points to fantasy tight ends.
And it's not as simple as "proper talking" black folks are "acting white" either...don't let TV or simple minds convince you of that
Stevens thinks Erik Murphy and Rodney McGruder are "intrigued plus" about Red Claws. Would like to see them in Maine.
How's Bosh doing today? "Fantastically well," he says.

Stevens on Rondo: "He's more ready to roll than not." Still won't rush it. He's wearing a hefty mitt in contact drills.

This Russell Wilson situation prompts a conversation that takes far more than 140 characters...
Tyler Johnson and Shawn Jones not with Heat.
Brad Stevens says today's practice will be light. Tomorrow? Not so much. "Tomorrow will be a hard-contact, physical practice," he says.
Whenever I hear "is he black enough?" I wonder will he be "black enough" to the cops? LOL
Deadliest Euro pick-and-roll player? A. Vassilis Spanoulis B. Milos Teodosic C. Other.
The NBA season begins in five days. http://t.co/B0684ZGBFh
The Bucks' newest investor previously served as president of the National Frozen Pizza Institute. Related: I now have a new dream job.
Five days to opening night
Whoops! I accidentally gave Pistons 1989 instead of 1990 in the champs map. '89 is 26 years ago. The count within past 25 years is correct.
Euroleague final four MVP Tyrese Rice, guard for Khimki Moscow, spotted @ Maccabi vs CSKA.
Jameer Nelson was a 1st-round pick of DEN in 2004. But he was quickly traded to ORL for a 2005 1st-rounder. He played in ORL 10 for years.
Brain Randle was an under-the-radar pickup for Maccabi. Euro teams lucked out big time.
Someone please explain to Berman of the Post that Willie Reed of the Nets and the Knicks Willis Reed are not the same person. He's confused
Nets have waived Willie Reed. They still have to make at least one more cut before season starts.
Leeds Force have released British centre Zak Wells - tore cartilage in his left knee and will be out for six months.
UK Athletics say Glasgow Indoor International - originally scheduled for January 24 - could move into February. Date TBC soon.
Could be some NBA interest in Covington, D-League ROY last yr, but might have to weigh non-guaranteed money here vs. guarantees elsewhere.
Rockets still have not officially waived Robert Covington, but has not been w team for almost 2 weeks. Weighing guaranteed offers in Europe.
Rockets make release of Akil Mitchell official today and sign Geron Johnson. Both will soon be proud RGV Vipers.
When I'm told newspapers are dying and useless, it's nice to show up at your kid's school and see they still matter. http://t.co/bsctnW2jYN
But that's how the Spurs were able to make the offensive strides they have in recent years - never resting on laurels.
Would imagine Popovich has been picking Messina's brain for tweaks. Interesting he's even thinking about that after Finals success.
Interesting that both Green and Ginobili indicated last night that the Spurs have been experimenting liberally on offense this preseason.
Long season, but NYK's first 8 games will be fascinating re: its goal of making the playoffs: CHI, @ CLE, CHA, WAS, @ DET, @ BKN, @ ATL, ATL
Chris Paul: “I don’t even want to say why we’re going to be the team. We got to do it. That’s the thing I’ve learned. It’s too much talking”
Doc Rivers on what he hopes Chris Paul learned from Game 5 meltdown in OKC: “The same thing Isiah [Thomas] took from the Boston game.”
Brooklyn Nets announce they've waived Willie Reed, who sadly will never appear in the "30 For 30" documentary "When the Barclays Was Eden."
Rivers: "It just feels like & I don’t want to get into anything where I’m killing Sterling, but it feels like our franchise is more stable."
Brooklyn Nets have waived Willie Reed, the team announces. The roster now stands at 16 with one more cut to go before the regular season.
Blake Griffin on Ballmer: "All of the excitement, all that is genuine. It’s not like he’s doing it for the crowd. He’s really that excited.”
Guess here is that Gutierrez and Jefferson are eventually waived, too. At least one of them will have to be waived to get to 15- man limit.
Just found @tasmelas' secret Instagram account. http://t.co/ClLOPjqwE9
The Houston Rockets have waived forward Josh Powell, league source tells RealGM. Powell had a non-guaranteed deal for this season.
Willie Reed has been waived. Nets are now down to 16 players.
Brandon Jennings has a sore Achilles. Wouldn't think the Pistons would chance it in the final preseason game. Didn't go at shootaround
CSKA vs Maccabi should've been epic. De Colo, Khryapa, Markoishvili, Nichols, Smith and Tyus - ALL OUT WITH INJURIES.
Sorry about radio stream. Our crack staff is working on it.
For some reason part 2 of the Garden Report isn’t working. We will have that fixed for you soon. For now you can just watch part 1 twice.
Memphis may not have the glitz of bigger markets, but if FAs know that ownership will spend for care/support it tags Grizz as first-class.
YESSSSSSS! One Direction coming to FirstEnergy Stadium. Cuz we danced all night to the best song ever...Who says you don't find talent on TV
Jason Hatcher: "I'm a Redskin at heart. This is my team. This is my organization. I love it to death."
Euro 6-foot-9 big man Ivan Bender is U.S. bound this weekend, I'm told. Headed to Maryland, then train in Israel.
Reminder the Level 9 Great Gear up just started at 660 South 400 West. Tonight see "Day of my Youth" awesome ski movie at L9GGU
Dallas: Another good team in the wrong conference.
Partridge said it's possible that Jay Warren could also see the field after having a good week of practice.
Charlie Partridge said Tony Moore will be the starting RB against Marshall. Greg Howell will also be in rotation.
Sporting News: SVU. http://t.co/DzO8FThNKs
She said that on ESPN this morning, and that quote is a flat-out winner.
Jeanie Buss: "Any free agent that would be afraid to play w/Kobe Bryant is probably a loser and I’m glad they wouldn’t come to the team."
Preview comin' ...
Big, big Ballmer fan after my time with him. Dude is going to be great for the Clippers, and not just because he's not Donald Sterling.
SOON. (Seriously, very soon) http://t.co/uEASmr63w5
Jeannie Buss: Any free agent that would be afraid to play with Kobe Bryant is probably a loser and I’m glad they wouldn’t come to the team.
Okay, so Phil Jackson is not the only one in his relationship telling truths with his team. ....
I'm told the Raptors TV schedule is likely coming out tomorrow/Monday. Finally. Last year of Bell 47/Rogers 35 split.
Klay Thompson may get a max deal, but we can all agree Mark Jackson was sticking it to the Ws when he said Klay has "got to get" max, right?
There's some optimism there, esp re: Amar'e minutes, but he also might be first coach/exec to publicly burst "Bargnani can shoot 3s" bubble
You don't see a bird like this every day in midtown Manhattan. http://t.co/awL9In4Lfq
