Bobby Marks: Strong gesture by Nets management honoring the commitment to Cliff Alexander and Prince Ibeh. Nets had committee to both players for a 10-day contract this season but injuries derailed the signing. The Nets commitment to both is similar to what Golden State did with Jose Calderon and his agent Mark Bartelstein back in early March.
The Long Island Nets, the NBA Development League affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets, have acquired forward Cliff Alexander from the Erie BayHawks in exchange for Long Island’s third round pick in the 2017 NBA D-League Draft.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: The Portland Trail Blazers waived forward Cliff Alexander, which was needed to create cap room to sign Festus Ezeli.

NBA Central: Brian Windhorst says Ben Simmons playing in front of Sixers fans is a ‘factor’ in him wanting out of Philadelphia “He doesn’t want to be in front of those fans. …I don’t think he intends to ever show his face there again.” (Via @Sirius XM NBA ) pic.twitter.com/Ltt0ccwARf
Here’s the deal … Jeffrey was at Casa Amigos bar in Scottsdale when he “fell and hit his head,” according to police. They say Jordan then became combative with security who were attempting to escort him out of the bar to receive medical attention. Scottsdale PD, who were in the area for an unrelated call, were summoned to assist. Cops interviewed bar staff, and eventually deemed the incident “medical in nature,” not criminal. An ambulance was called to transport JJ to a hospital.
After arriving at a local hospital, that’s when things allegedly took a turn. Jeffrey is accused of assaulting hospital staff while being treated for the injury he sustained at the bar. A report for aggravated assault, a felony, was taken at the hospital.
As for Jeffrey’s side, our sources tell us he was confused and disoriented following the fall. Jordan was NOT arrested or charged with a crime. As of this morning, he still remains in the hospital. Police tell us the relevant reports will be sent to the Maricopa County Prosecutors Office … where they will review the case and determine if charges are warranted.
