One obvious possibility to replace Lee is Ryan Broekhoff, who was waived by the Mavericks on Feb. 11 to make room for the signing of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist after Kidd-Gilchrist was waived by Charlotte. Broekhoff and wife Katie and 1-year-old son Jackson still live in Dallas. Broekhoff reportedly in recent weeks has received interest from teams in Greece and Russia.
How does unemployment work for an NBA player? I guess I’m wondering how you train. Don’t say what specific gym, of course, but is there a random Dallas area gym that you’re just showing up to. If I had a – I don’t know – Lifetime Fitness pass, might I randomly run into a vaguely familiar 6’7 dude shooting and lifting? Ryan Broekhoff: Yeah, you might, now that we’re back in Dallas. You might see us around some spots. But just using some contacts I’ve made to get somewhere to work out and I guess, not have privacy, but make sure that I can have a free court (so I’m) able to stay ready for whatever does happen next.
In late June, Broekhoff and wife Katie are expecting their first child, a son, and they can’t wait for him to arrive. They pair have been together since college and they were never sure if they would be able to conceive a child, making this moment even more special. Broekhoff wants to be there for his wife and with her family based in the US, he would be too far away to be completely focused while playing for the Boomers in Australia and then China. Adding to Broekhoff’s concerns, Katie has an auto-immune disease that requires medication and makes a pregnancy difficult. There are many cases of people having healthy babies in the same circumstances, but the birth and early weeks can be difficult.
