So, why does this matter now? Because sources say the Atlanta Hawks are not happy that the league is continuing to look the other way on the matter in the Eastern Conference Finals. In the Hawks’ Game 1 116-113 win over the Bucks on Wednesday, Antetokounmpo — by the Hawks’ internal count — ranged between 11.5 seconds and 13.3 seconds on his eight attempts but wasn’t whistled once.
The Australian Federation announced that guard/forward Ryan Broekhoff and forward/center Isaac Humphries have withdrawn from the national team ahead of the Olympic Games. Broekhoff mentioned mental health issues as the reason he’ll skip playing with the Boomers this summer. “My mental health is something I have struggled with for a long time and I think it’s important for me to put my hand up and admit when things aren’t ok and that it is time to seek help.”
All it took was a phone call with current president Kevin Pritchard and an agreement materialized quickly. “Familiarity with the organization is the a plus for me,” Carlisle, who signed a four-year, $29 million deal, told IndyStar late Thursday night in a phone conversation. “When you’re asked to come back to the same place a third time, that’s a special.”
Carlisle has talked with most of his players already. He didn’t speak with Sabonis, who is with the Lithuanian national team. “I had relevant, constructive conversations about the situation,” he said. “I like the tone. I like the way these guys are talking. It sounds like a group that’s ready to make some sacrifices.”
Brad Townsend: As Jason Kidd begins to assemble his coaching staff, with his formal hiring as Mavericks head coach apparently imminent, 2011 title-team teammates JJ Barea and Jason Terry certainly appear to be strong candidates to rejoin the organization. “I hope,” Barea says.

The candidacy of Jacque Vaughn as head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans is “gaining traction”, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. Vaughn was previously head coach of the Orlando Magic and has been an assistant coach with the Brooklyn Nets since 2016.
“I’m not saying he’s going to get his job because Charles Lee on the Bucks’ staff is also going to be a strong candidate. The word coming out of Chicago at the draft combine is that Jacque Vaughn, who is close to Trajan Langdon… Jacque Vaughn is going to get a real serious look and has interviewed I believe with the Pelicans.”
According to several sources, tension arose between both coaches and Griffin when management tried to incorporate its preferences into player evaluations, rotations and general strategy. The strain led to a recognition of differing philosophies between the coaching staff and front office, pulling the Pelicans away from the “shared vision” Griffin so commonly refers to when addressing franchise goals.
