Marc Stein: Nine who secured these all-you-can-get deals, which pay out 90-plus percent of their 2019-20 salaries by April 1, are represented by Klutch Sports on contracts structured and negotiated by agent Rich Paul and attorney Mark Termini. The nine Klutch players are naturally led by LeBron James and include John Wall, Kentavious-Caldwell Pope, Dejounte Murray, Miles Bridges, Darius Bazley, Darius Garland, Terrance Ferguson and Trey Lyles. Next season it will be 10 when Draymond Green’s contract extension kicks in.
It has also contributed significantly to San Antonio’s ugly defensive numbers. That quintet has played 148 minutes together this season — more than twice as many minutes as any other Spurs lineup — and has been outscored by 8.9 points per 100 possessions. Of the 14 five-man units that have played at least 100 minutes this season, it is by far the worst — and one of only two that has been outscored by its opponents. “They’re playing Lyles? Come on,” said one scout who saw San Antonio recently. “Not in the West. Maybe you can play him and hope to get to ninth in the East or something.”
Plumlee had 15 points and 11 rebounds, and wowed the home crowd with his Jokic-like, no-look pass to Trey Lyles in the Nuggets’ 112-87 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night. Plumlee had four assists, the most impressive coming when he flipped a pass over his right shoulder to a cutting Lyles for a layup. “I know Mason, he was looking, so I figured I’d cut and he did his own thing from there,” said Lyles, who scored a season-high 22 points. “Mason’s one of our best passers as a big. He looks for me all the time so I’m grateful.”
Now factor in the return of a healthy Paul Millsap and that dynamic wing core of Jamal Murray and Gary Harris, and it seems all but certain that all this optimism will prove to be well-founded. But how good can they be? Title contenders, according to Malone, in the not-so-distant future. “Teams do it in different ways,” he continues. “And what I like about us is I never mortgaged our future for instant success. We didn’t trade a core young piece for instant gratification, for a season where maybe it would’ve helped us. But big picture, long-term, was not going to allow us to have sustained success. And by keeping Jamal, Nikola, Gary, Trey (Lyles), our young core, re-signing Will, we feel that we have a chance to be competitive and ultimately a championship contender at some point. I give our ownership credit. And I’m not just blowing smoke, because we haven’t made the playoffs in five years, and we all want to make the playoffs, but we know that the importance of ‘Let’s look long term. Let’s not be a checkers player. Let’s be a chess player and look two, three steps ahead of everybody.’”

Scott Agness: Lance Stephenson carries Andre Owens’ team to the @FACTORYD1INDY Pro Am title, 75-68, over Teague/Teague/Lyles. Lance scored 32pts and was named MVP — his final act before moving to L.A. for the season.

With the Nuggets, Karnisovas has helped construct a roster of players who combine a specific physical profile, versatile skill set and intangibles such as drive and selflessness. He continues to relish the bonds he’s built in a job he estimates is 80 percent human interaction. And, naturally, Denver’s current group is filled with international flavor. Point guard Jamal Murray and reserve forward Trey Lyles were born in Canada. Two-way wing Torrey Craig was discovered playing professionally in Australia. And the Serbian Nikola Jokic has blossomed from a relatively unknown second-round pick into one of the most versatile big men in the game. “Arturas was the one who was wanting it more for me to come here, so it’s kind of cool,” Jokic said. “He’s European, and he knows how European basketball (works). He played with some Serbian players. He knows our mentality. Of course he can help me a lot, just adapting to the basketball (in the NBA).”

The belief is that Stauskas, also unavailable this summer, was unhappy with his usage at the FIBA Americas tournament in 2015 as well. […] They’ll miss Wiggins, to be sure, but they’re confident they have enough talent to compete without him. Most importantly, they’ve found a group of guys that recognize and appreciate the value in representing their country, that want to be there. They’ve left the door open for Wiggins, Stauskas and , who has never played for the senior team, but they’re not going to beg and nor should they.

Richard Jefferson turned the conversation toward the Beehive State. “So,” Jefferson said, “you got drafted by Utah? Then you …” “Unfortunately,” said Lyles, interrupting him. “Let’s talk about why you didn’t want to go to Utah,” Jefferson said after the 12th pick of the 2015 draft mentioned that he would’ve preferred to be drafted by Denver. “I don’t know,” Lyles said. “I just didn’t like it.”
Jefferson: “I liked playing in Utah. I really did.” Lyles: “Who was your coach then?” Jefferson: “I had Tyrone Corbin.” Lyles, grumbling: “So y’all didn’t practice? Y’all didn’t do nothing, yeah. See, we had practice every day (under Quin Snyder). I thought I was in Kentucky again.” Jefferson, sarcastically: “You had practice every day? Oh, sorry for making you work hard. Sorry. What’s wrong with working hard, Trey?” Lyles: “I didn’t say nothing about working hard. Three-hour practices? C’mon now.”
Lyles refused to say anything nice about Utah. “It’s very similar to Denver,” Jefferson said. “It’s not similar to Denver,” Lyles rebutted. “If you’d shut up and let me talk,” Jefferson countered, jokingly. “You don’t have to say (bleep) and be all rude,” Lyles responded. “It’s sunny all the time in Utah,” Jefferson said. Lyles: “Hmmmm.” “The fans are really, really good.” “Hmmmm.”
When the presentation ended, Lyles turned to head strength & conditioning coach Felipe Eichenberger, and for the first time described his insomnia. “I’m a thinker, so my mind is always running,” Lyles explains. “After games, my body can’t settle down, so I just lie there with my thoughts. Then I start looking at the clock: ‘It’s 4, and I’ve got practice at 9. I’m going to be tired.’” He craved something stronger than melatonin supplements but healthier than ZzzQuil pills, which left him groggy in the morning. Eichenberger introduced Lyles to a new sleep drink, not yet on the market but certified by the National Science Foundation for Sport, called Som. Created by a start-up in Santa Monica, Calif., and advertised as “drug-free, dairy-free, gluten-free,” Som was not designed for NBA players. But now that the product has been released to the public, they might end up being the most loyal customers.
