Dear #NuggetsNation, Didn’t think I would be here as a rookie, but, my 7 years as a Denver Nugget has come to an end. I truly appreciate everyone who has crossed my path at the Nuggets organization. From 2011 when I was drafted as the 22nd pick in Newark, NJ till now. I want to thank the owners the GMs and my teammates who believed in from day one starting as a rookie, I have learned a lot throughout this journey and have become a better player and person because of all the trials I endured. So I thank you again Denver for everything you have taught me! Brooklyn I hope y’all are ready for my arrival. #Bismillah #Shukran #UNLEASHTHEMANIMAL #BrooklynWeGoHard #BrooklynStandUp #ImComingHome

Keith Pompey: According to a league source, the #Sixers have had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the #Cleveland #Cavs for Kyle Korver.
Zach Lowe: The two sides haggled over protections on that pick, sources say. OKC pushed for top-20 protected, but ATL got friendlier protections (lottery protected) in the end — likely by rerouting Muscala to a third team instead of OKC.
Marc J. Spears: Warriors @Klay Thompson getting buckets in the Bahamas at Jeff Rogers Celebrity Game. Suns @Deandre Ayton in attendance but not playing after recently finishing summer league action. NBA free agent Shelvin Mack playing, too.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s Steven Adams. The Kiwi NBA star has been turned into a comic book hero. In a video posted by the Oklahoma City Thunder, comic artist Corey Lewis Reyyy showcases his creation called Kiwi Legend which is being sold at the famed Comic-Con event this week.
Reyyy explains comic version Adams is “a salt of the Earth fella who’s struggling”. “He’s really tough but he has to learn stuff as we all do. He’s got a really interesting family which is amazing,” he added.
