Greek national team seemed to have everything under control as they won all five games in the first stage of FIBA World Cup Qualifiers. Head coach Thanasis Skourtopoulos was very satisfied and believes things will improve as he expects more players to be available for the second round, especially Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo: “I think Giannis will be with us in September. Unless something extraordinary and very serious arises, I think he will come to the national team. He is aware of everything about the camp, he has the training program. He has shown interest and I think he will be in the national team for the first games of the next phase.”, Skourtopoulos told fiba.basketball.

Warriors adding Will Cherry

Will Cherry is expected to join the Golden State Warriors on an Exhibit 10 contract, a source told Sportando. The guard, who has played 8 games with Cavs in 2014-2015, spent last season with KK Cedevita in Croatia averaging 10.5 points in the domestic league, 11.1 points in AB Liga and 11.8 points with 4 assists in EuroCup.

If McCaw doesn’t show up, maybe the Warriors will just stage an open competition and see if one of those younger options seizes the opportunity. But the most likely result remains McCaw’s eventual concession. A similar situation happened with center Alex Len in Phoenix last summer. He didn’t love his $4.2 million qualifying offer. He dragged the process deep into the summer. He finally accepted it on Sept. 21, right before camp.
Wade, 36, waited until the end of the video before revealing his choice. He began by stating the reasons he considered walking away. The red-eye flights, nightly ice baths and hours on the training table were all factors but nothing made retirement look more appealing than spending more time with family. “Is it selfish of me wanting to continue being away from family,” Wade said. “Can I miss my son’s games? Can I miss my son? Can I not be there in moments that they need me? Can I not read to my kids as much as I want. Can I not be there to support my wife? It’s all these things.”
Before entering the league in 2003, Wade always thought time was forever on his side. He was quickly corrected by veteran teammates. Sixteen years later, the warnings proved true. “When you first come in the league, the vets tell you, they say, `Young fella, it’s going to go by fast,’” Wade said in the video. “You think at that time, `I’m just getting started.’ … I’m here to tell you it goes by fast. It’s been a tough summer. This has been a summer for me that not a lot of athletes want to see this time come, where you have to decide if you want to continue to play the game that you love.”’
While he has shown some improvement, the Maryland native isn’t a finished product. Witnesses have observed that, on occasion, he appears to push his long-range shots from in front of his face. Fultz also looks more fluid off the dribble than while stationary. “When I look at the actual form, there are times, from a posture standpoint, he’s a little bit backward,” Brown said. “When you look at him rising up, or getting the ball in his shot pocket, sometimes his head will go back and he’ll play more in a fade-type fundamental that we want to try to correct.”
