Colby Giacubeno: Jared, I’m gonna need you to stop all this talk about going to different teams. You belong in Washington. – Jared Dudley: I love DC! But I’m open for anything!
@geraldyu14: Hey Jared Dudley you coming to the Rockets next month? Here you have coach Mike D'Antoni & the MVP you voted last season. pic.twitter.com/4AqnAFjLQ7 - Jared Dudley: Lol!!! You guys do need a new Shane Battier.
Yung: I know you hate them, but do you think the Lakers are on the brink of being a powerhouse in the league again? - Jared Dudley: I don't hate them! Lol... There about 2-3 yrs away. Need 1 big free agent to take the leap of faith.
Willie Armstrong: In looking for a new team next year, how important is the team being able to contend? Jared Dudley: Not at all! I can play for a young team or a vet team! Whoever wants you the most.
Hemp Guardiola: (Asking as a Knicks fan, but open to any answer but Rambis) Best available coach? Jared Dudley: Prob Frank Vogel.
“I thought I held my end of the bargain when it came to Ernie [Grunfeld] trading for me even though I was hurt at the time,” Dudley said after the Wizards’ season finale. “Going forward, I could definitely see me coming back. As I told some other reporters, I’m never anybody’s first or second or third option, I’m your fourth option. So if you don’t get your girlfriend you want right away, I’m the one at the end. For me, it’s no problem. You know what I can do in this system. When I play, I play the right way.”
Jared Dudley: My money on Thibs! - RT: R Fields: T-wolves still not making playoffs next year. Hard to improve 13-15 games on single season.
Jared Dudley: He's open to coming back as long as Wittman isn't the coach. But at this point in his career, Dudley wants to make the most money possible. That means he wants security, meaning years. Though he was the other player Wall said he wanted back, the guess here is Dudley walks.
Under-the-radar free agent: Jared Dudley, Washington. Dudley, 30, is the ultimate teammate and professional. Dudley and John Wall have kept Washington afloat during a tough period when injuries have ravaged the Wizards. More substance to his game than flash, the nine-year veteran has posted career bests of 47.5 percent shooting from 2-point range and 43.1 percent from 3 this season. He can play both wing positions and can even shift to PF if a team elects to go small. Dudley has not missed a game this season and has only missed 19 since 2011-12.

Kellan olson: Devin Booker on his Twitch stream (http://twitch.tv/dbook ) confirms he has COVID-19. Said it has been about a week and he’ll be back in no time. He said he’s straight right now and the worst part is no taste and smell. He did not want to say if he has been vaccinated or not.
“There are so many other players outside of him who are opting out, I would like to think they would make a way,” Kyrie’s aunt, Tyki Irving, told Rolling Stone. “It could be like every third game. So it still gives you a full season of being interactive and being on the court, but with the limitations that they’re, of course, oppressing upon you. There can be some sort of formula where the NBA and the players can come to some sort of agreement.” Tyki Irving runs the seven-time All-Star’s family foundation and is one of the few people in his regular circle of advisors. A spokeswoman for Irving declined to respond to Rolling Stone’s questions regarding his vaccination and playing status. Irving also did not immediately respond to a message from Rolling Stone.
Dane Moore: Whoever you talk to around the league, it’s a lot of the same thing when it comes to a Ben Simmons trade: “It all starts Monday”. If/when Simmons does not show up to training camp, that’s when the trade market really starts to materialize, and real offers start coming in.
76ers swingman Danny Green addressed the Simmons situation this week on the latest episode of his “Inside the Green Room” podcast. “This has nothing to do with the organization,” said Green. “This has to do with us. We just want to meet with him on a personal level, on a human being, friend level. If he still considers us friends, we don’t know if that’s the case yet or not.
“I know he still communicates with some of the guys,” Green added. “I haven’t been in communication with him. But I would love to meet with him and sit down and talk just to see where his head was at. Let him know that we have his back and we want him back and just give him some friendly advice. Just first and foremost as a human being, as a professional.”
Matt Moore: Quick note: the general reaction from sources close to the Nuggets regarding reports that they are “frontrunners” for a Simmons deal is general confusion. “Who would we even trade?” is a common refrain.
Matt Moore: I inquired about the suggested idea that Jamal Murray would be the centerpiece of a trade. “Not sure if that’s more insulting to Jamal or us to be honest” was the response.
Malika Andrews: The Chicago Bulls have added free agent big man Daniel Oturu to their training camp roster, Kevin Bradbury of @REP1Basketball tells ESPN. Oturu has cleared waivers and will report to Chicago — which is in need of a versatile size — immediately.
