More on Rodney Stuckey Free Agency

David 'Dubi' Pick: Source: NBA free agent Rodney Stuckey is working out at Impact Sports in Las Vegas: Warriors, Nets, Grizzlies, Spurs and Pacers have sent reps.
Michael Scotto: 10-year NBA veteran Rodney Stuckey will participate in a veteran mini-camp with the Portland Trail Blazers, a league source told The Athletic.
Shams Charania: Ten-year NBA veteran Rodney Stuckey plans to visit several teams post-Labor Day. Stuckey has been fully healthy training this summer.
Darren Wolfson: Rodney Stuckey is yet another FA the #Twolves have inquired about. Shockingly, I've yet to be asked about him. Miles remains top choice.
With intentions to bolster their backcourt and provide a veteran presence around their young roster, the Lakers “have shown interest” in free agent guard Rodney Stuckey, according to a league source familiar with the situation.
Nate Taylor: Nate McMillan said he had the upmost respect for Rodney Stuckey. McMillan wouldn't discuss Lance Stephenson since a deal isn't finalized.
The Pacers had until April 10 to release Stuckey and avoid paying the $7 million for his 2017-18 player option. C.J. Miles (2017-18) and Monta Ellis (2018-19) share similar clauses in their contracts. The Pacers’ front office expressed contrition about releasing Stuckey at this point in the season, sources said, and believes both sides benefited from his nearly three seasons in Indiana.
Stuckey planned to opt out of his contract at the end of the season, sources said, but the Pacers needed to make the decision to open a roster spot to help their depleted bench. The team announced Tuesday that guard Glenn Robinson III (calf) will be re-evaluated late next week, and center Al Jefferson (ankle) will miss at least two weeks.
Bobby Marks: Although Stuckey has a $7m cap hit, he is only owed $535k left on his contract. Could be financial savings for a team below the floor.
Shams Charania: The Pacers are waiving guard Rodney Stuckey, league sources tell @The Vertical. Indiana had April 10 date to release before Stuckey's option.
Scott Agness: Pacers have waived Rodney Stuckey, a source told
Shams Charania: Stuckey's expected to recover from patellar strain within few weeks. Pacers dealing with injuries to key reserves, could use healthy player.
J. Michael: Just told that Rodney Stuckey, who i reported earlier as a player of interest, "very much a possibility". Stuckey made $1.2M last yr for #Pacers so he's gonna want a nice raise probably more than biannual exception #WizardsTalk #NBA @CSNWizards
Vincent Goodwill: Bulls not yet in on Rodney Stuckey. Four contenders for his services so far. Wonder if he'll wait the market out to get some MLE money
Recently when asked about the season, Bird, who will just as soon use the term "good little player" to describe a pro, could not bridle his enthusiasm about Stuckey. "I want him back, too. He was great. Great worker. He worked as hard as anybody. He lifted just about every game. Every thing we asked him to do at the beginning of the year, he did it. He was fantastic," Bird said. "He knows how much I want him, I told him that at the end of the year."
Stuckey has a desire to be in a competing situation again next season, but will still prioritize a possible return to Indiana where there is strong mutual interest. Stuckey scored 12.6 points in 26.4 minutes per game last season, flourishing in Frank Vogel’s offensive system and providing stability as a starter or reserve.

Gary Harris on Paolo Banchero: 'He ain't normal'

The mere notion that Banchero could potentially hit the rookie wall was quickly shot down by teammates Wendell Carter Jr. and Gary Harris. The start by Banchero is something Harris has never seen. “He is not no normal rookie. He ain’t normal at all. He is hungry. He wants to be great. He is willing to learn. He wants to be coached. He is taking it in all on the fly and he is 20 years old so this is a lot for him. In halfway through the season, I’ve never seen anybody come into the league like he has come into the league with just how locked in, focused and how mature he is. He already is special. He is special.”
