Naz Reid suffers broken wrist
Shams Charania: Minnesota Timberwolves center Naz Reid has suffered a broken wrist and will miss a significant period of time, sources tell me and @JonKrawczynski . Tough loss as Reid is in the midst of his best season, averaging 11.5 points and 4.9 rebounds.
Jon Krawczynski: One last thing that I will remember on this: Reid broke his wrist, then hit 1 of 2 free throws and played another several minutes through the pain. The dude is TOUGH.
Moneke is keeping an eye on him as well. “It depends on how Mike Brown is going to use him,” Moneke responded when asked if Vezenkov would be a suitable piece in Brown’s schemes. “I love the way he plays because he doesn’t need the ball to affect the game. He is shooting the ball and rebounding very well. What he is doing in the EuroLeague, they will find a way to use him in the right way, I hope for him. He is a great player, and he will be fine. He should be fine if they are telling the truth about how they want to use him.”
Blazers signing Shaquille Harrison
The Portland Trail Blazers are signing veteran free agent guard Shaq Harrison on a 10-day contract, sources tell ESPN. Harrison — who has played with five NBA teams — spent the season with the South Bay Lakers of the G League.
Few know that Moneke’s path could have been completely different over the last year. The previous summer, he signed a deal with the Kings but had an opportunity to choose between three NBA teams. “It was Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves,” Moneke revealed the other two options besides Sacramento.
His stint with the Kings included just two appearances and eight NBA minutes, but the Nigerian NT member does not regret his decision to land in California. “I think it worked out the way it was supposed to. Obviously, everything would be different, I probably wouldn’t be here,” Moneke told BasketNews. “Maybe it would have been worse, maybe it would have been better. I don’t know, I cannot control that. But I am happy with the connections I made and the experience I had. I am also happy to be here in Monaco. No regrets. “Situation is very important,” he continued about the biggest lesson he learned in the NBA environment. “Situation is very, very important. Some people struggle on certain teams not because they are not good players but because they are in the wrong situation. It’s very important to play for a coach, play on a team that believes in you, and will give you opportunities to play the way you wanna play.”
Jared Weiss: Jaylen Brown says he’s liking the mask after tonight’s game: “Yeah I need some extra protection out there. Guys are headbutting guys, maybe our whole team needs masks.”
