You’d think he’d have called Rodions Kurucs, but nope, Kristaps Porzingis didn’t call his fellow Latvia on Draft Night. Instead, the call went to Dzanan Musa of Bosnia. “He encouraged me to just go for it,’’ Musa told The Post’s Marc Berman on Sunday at the NBA’s rookie orientation. It turns out the two Europeans have older brothers who played against each other. How do we know that Porzingis didn’t call Kurucs? The day after the Draft, the 20-year-old Latvian told the media that he had only spoken with Porzingis once but that he looked forward to talking with him … and playing against him “and beat his ass.”
Bobby Marks, ESPN: The Hamidou Diallo (Oklahoma City) and Khyri Thomas (Detroit) signings now have 17 players selected in the second round of the June Draft under contract. Each of the second round picks have at a minimum of three years on their contract except for Jevon Carter (Memphis). The point guard was restricted to only two years because Memphis had signed Kyle Anderson to the full midlevel exception. The top three players with the most guaranteed money are Rodions Kurucs ($4.8M), Jalen Brunson ($4.3M) and Gary Trent Jr. ($3.9M). In addition, the last three players selected in the second round, Thomas Welsh, George King and Kostas Antetokounmpo were signed to Two-Way Contracts.
