Sources have confirmed to CSNBayArea.com that David Stockton will not return to Reno, although a door remains slightly open. The son of NBA legend John Stockton, David averaged 20.1 points and 9.4 assists per game for Reno a season ago. His stellar play earned him multiple call-ups to the Kings, but with three point guards on a maxed out 15 man roster, his potential for another run in Sacramento is a long shot.

After being waived by the Kings earlier in the month, sources have confirmed that Ole Miss sharpshooter Marshall Henderson will in fact join the Bighorns for this season.

Rookie Vince Hunter has also agreed to join the Bighorns. The 6-foot-8, 208-pound forward averaged 14.9 points and 9.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore at UTEP, but he went unselected in the NBA Draft in June. He spent training camp with the Kings in October, playing a total of two minutes.

D'Angelo Russell looking great in workouts

Who would Wolves staff consider to be early candidates for the most improved player on the roster? 2) Do the Wolves see McKinley Wright IV as a sort of “Pat Bev-in-training”? 3) Will there really be a concerted effort to apply full-court defensive pressure? — @Tresio The two players I have heard a lot of buzz about looking great in workouts: McDaniels and (drum roll, please) … Russell. Sounds like he is locked in right now.

NBA execs expect breakout season from Darius Garland

The 21-year-old guard should thrive in pick-and-roll action with Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley as rim rollers, while the addition of Lauri Markkanen, who shot 40.2 percent from downtown last season, will help space the floor and open pick-and-pop opportunities. “I think Garland’s kind of gotten lost in the shuffle in terms of people knowing who he is because of Colin Sexton,” an NBA scout opined. “If he stays healthy, I like picking him.”
I have heard A-Rod and the new ownership is bully on the Wolves. What major moves do you predict they will make to improve the product in the next couple years? — @SPORTSviKINGs17 So far, it appears like the immediate target is just modernizing things, bringing a franchise that has often been at the back of the pack to more of the cutting edge when it comes to technology and innovation — that sort of thing. Of course, the main goal will be to make the Timberwolves more competitive on the floor, but I think there is a real emphasis on everything around the basketball, as well. What can be done to change the perception of the organization? They are taking a long look at culture and values and defining characteristics. Those might seem like mumbo jumbo to dyed-in-the-wool hoop heads, but those are things that Lore and Rodriguez are very familiar with in their other businesses. They can dive in on them right away as they work to get up to speed on the intricacies of basketball, the collective bargaining agreement and the team in general.
