Alex Kennedy: Recap: AmeriLeague says they signed Terrence Williams, Dajuan Wagner, Antoine Wright, recruit Ted Kapita. Tree Rollins hired as first coach. Oh, and I left one former NBA player off of the list of players the AmeriLeague announced: former Indiana Pacers big man David Harrison.
The AmeriLeague have acquired forwards Terrence Williams and Antoine Wright. Both have agreed to the terms of a contract that will allow the former 11th (Williams) and 15th (Wright) overall NBA draft picks to compete in the 2015-16 AmeriLeague season.
Former first-round pick David Harrison has verbally agreed to a deal with the semipro Las Vegas Dealers, who are also in significant discussions with ex-NBA player Royce White. The Dealers are part of the startup Amerileague, which intends to target top high school talent and well-known former NBA players.
Harrison has a contract offer for $200,000, according to his agent Zach Charles. White also has a deal on the table worth a guaranteed $200,000, league commissioner Ethan Norof confirmed to ESPN on Thursday night. "We're excited to have David join the Amerileague and look forward to adding additional NBA talent in the near future," Norof said. "We also plan to stay aggressive in our pursuit of the top high school prospects."

Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't rule out playing for the Bulls in the future

Fox 32 Chicago Sports: Giannis on playing for the #Bulls someday tonight on The Sports Zone on Fox 32 Chicago. @fox32news @foxkickoff @LouCanellis @CassieCarlsonTV @Giannis_An34

“I think anyone asked that question who plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar. It’s a team that won multiple championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now, I’m committed to Milwaukee.”

Lakers to open season vs. Warriors

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is unbeaten in seven games against the Lakers since taking over two seasons ago, while it will be Lakers coach Darvin Ham’s first meeting of arena tenants since his hiring in May. The game will be the Clippers’ season opener, while the Lakers will open two days earlier, on Oct. 18, at defending champion Golden State, according to a person with knowledge of the schedule.
On Sunday, Durant sent a tweet hinting that he’s going to delete his account on the platform amid the talks that it is ruining his legacy. However, he has since deleted the post. What’s interesting is Kevin Durant sent it out after people kept criticizing him for being the culprit in the current state of the player empowerment era in the NBA. A lot of players seem to be abusing that power to get out of situations they don’t like despite signing their contracts and teams paying them tons of money.
