Sources are telling us that the C’s are still holding the line on their offers from prior to the draft. They will make trades if teams come around to their price.

NBA Central: Giannis says LeBron is still the best player in the world “I’m not the best player in the world. I am telling you, I’m not. KD, LeBron, Kawhi, Luka, Curry, AD might be. I am not.

NBA Central: Giannis doesn’t believe James Harden’s “run and dunk” comments were about him “I think that the media made it about me. Harden is a great player and when I am on the court against him I have to play real hard. He is a Hall of Famer, I have nothing against him” (@Eurohoops) pic.twitter.com/jBC9GK3ebM
Mirjam Swanson: “Priority No. 1” Lawrence Frank says, was re-signing Kawhi. Makes sense. “It’s great validation … says a lot about his teammates, Ty and the coaching staff and where we’re at and where we’re trying to go.”
