This millennium, Prince George’s County, Maryland — a relatively small, mostly African American enclave just east of Washington D.C. — has sent more than 25 players to the NBA. That collection of talent has included one No. 1 overall pick and three players selected second overall; an unusual occurrence that can’t be limited to or be explained by one common link. “Basketball County: It’s In the Water,” is a documentary that debuts Friday on Showtime and attempts to break down what makes PG County the home for so much basketball talent, including Oladipo, Cook, Michael Beasley, Markelle Fultz, Adrian Dantley, Jeff Green, Marissa Coleman, the late Len Bias and, of course, the most accomplished player to emerge from the area, Kevin Durant.
Durant’s Thirty Five Ventures has the documentary, called “In the Water”, listed as still in development on its website. With players like Durant, University of Maryland legend Len Bias, and Pacers all-star guard Victor Oladipo all coming from the same place, this will surely be a must-watch. Markelle Fultz, Jeff Green, Quinn Cook, and Ty Lawson are also some of the better known local products to make it in the NBA. The documentary will air on Showtime.
In the hour before the Heat defeated Utah 107-104 at AmericanAirlines Arena, the Jazz traded point guard Dante Exum to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jordan Clarkson. In the moments following that defeat, the Jazz waived forward Jeff Green, sources told The Athletic. And in the moments following that, the Jazz signed shooting guard Rayjon Tucker to a guaranteed deal for the remainder of the season. The flurry of moves can be traced to one constant, according to league sources: The Jazz have not been happy with their bench play.
Storyline: Jeff Green Free Agency
Utah loved Green’s professionalism, sources say. But, at this point, the Jazz wanted to clear minutes for Georges Niang because of his shooting and the threat it poses to opposing teams. The Jazz are also very happy with rookie Jarrell Brantley, according to sources. Brantley, a 6-foot-7 power forward, has been a significant force for the G League Salt Lake City Stars. He’s currently on a two-way deal. And while minutes with the Jazz aren’t imminent, the Jazz clearly see him as a potential rotation player at some point.
Despite standing at just 5-foot-7, Toliver often would workout with the likes of Markieff Morris (6-10) and Jeff Green (6-9) and the former Washington power forwards always spoke highly of her contributions. Fellow point guard John Wall also appreciated the perspective that Kristi Toliver brought to the table. “I think it’s helped a lot,” Toliver diagnosed. “I was able to workout with some of the best in the business. As far as player development and obviously on the coaching side watching a lot of video. For me, I dissected a lot of things and had the game slow down for me. It’s been great.”
