Chris Haynes: Milwaukee Bucks plan to sign guard Sean Kilpatrick, league sources tell ESPN. Brooklyn released him last week to make room for Jahlil Okafor trade.
The Brooklyn Nets have acquired center Jahlil Okafor, guard Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second round draft pick from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward/center Trevor Booker. In a subsequent move, the Nets have requested waivers on guard Sean Kilpatrick.
Bobby Marks: Brooklyn still has $3.7M in cap space to use but have 15 roster spots. The cap space would increase to $5.2M if Sean Kilpatrick is claimed. The claiming team must have room, trade or Disability Exception to claim the shooting guard.
Journeyman Sean Kilpatrick is transforming a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets into staying power. Kilpatrick, 26, is finalizing a two-year deal with the Nets, sources told The Vertical. The deal will include a guarantee for the 2016-17 season, sources said.
Nets G Sean Kilpatrick, now on his second 10-day contract, has been a pleasant surprise for Brooklyn, averaging 13.6 points in his last five games. The 26-year-old journeyman covets stability -- and the Yonkers, N.Y. native hopes he's finally found it. "I've been living out of a suitcase I would say for the past six months. It's crazy, man," he said. "That's why when you ask, 'Do I want to be here (long-term)?' Like, I'm tired of living out of a suitcase."
The Brooklyn Nets have signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract, General Manager Sean Marks announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.

According to an anonymous Eastern Conference executive who spoke with Sean Deveney of Heavy.com, the Charlotte Hornets could look to trade former Warrior Kelly Oubre Jr. during the upcoming season. He was mentioned as a potential trade target for the Chicago Bulls.
“Charlotte is one other team that has looked for a big guy but they’re not desperate to do it. If you’re Chicago and you could get Gordon Hayward in a deal like that, I think you give that a go even with the injury stuff. But more likely, you’re looking at Mason Plumlee and someone like Kelly Oubre. The Bulls gave up two picks for Vuc, they’re going to want something in return if they trade him. They would much rather just bring him back, maybe even extend him, then see if he plays better,” the executive noted.
The EuroLeague star Mike James addressed the backlash about his comments over the NBA champion Stephen Curry. In the recent URBONUS podcast episode, James said that he has no bad feelings about Steph, and many took his words out of context.
