The Pacers aren’t moving Domantas Sabonis unless they get a Nikola Vucevic type of package in return. More on Sabonis, James Harden, Ben Simmons, Robert Covington, Eric Gordon, Jalen Brunson, and others with colleague @Yossi Gozlan on the @Jorge Sierra podcast hoopshype.com/lists/nba-trad…10:56 AM

KAT says the last play of the game was drawn up for him. With a laugh, he said, “but that didn’t work out”.
He said Covington knew it was going to him so he just denied the ball, which helped open a lane for DLo to attack the basket. – 1:13 AM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Karl-Anthony Towns said the last play was drawn up for him to get the ball, but Covington was playing him hard and said he told D-Lo to go to the basket instead because they were playing him and Edwards tight. – 1:10 AM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Covington’s troubles around the basket benefit the Wolves all these years later. – 12:27 AM
