Matt Velazquez: Bucks did not rescind Jabari Parker’s qualifying offer by last night’s deadline, per source. He remains a restricted free agent. My belief is it’s still unlikely Parker comes back to Milwaukee considering what Chicago is expected to offer.

Adam Wexler: With his 8th 3ptFGM, #Rockets @Jalen Green just set the franchise rookie record for 3ptFGM in a game. (Previous: Cuttino Mobley & Michael Dickerson with 7 – in the same game on Mar. 25, 1999 vs Raptors). Green has 28 pts (8-10 on 3’s), Rockets trail 104-90. @SportsTalk790
Lauren Rosen: Doc Rivers on Joel Embiid: “[His leadership is] so good. He’s been absolutely wonderful. Not just with his play but verbally, on the floor… And he’s in great shape too. The blocks that he’s having… we’ve got a 7-foot-1 guy doing eurosteps. It’s incredible watching him play.”
Mark Cuban is working on a program that would offer Mavericks fans a $50 credit each month of the season toward DirecTV Stream to reduce the cost of the only streaming platform that offers Bally Sports Southwest, he told The Dallas Morning News. The Mavericks’ owner is still working on details, but he said the franchise would first offer season-ticket holders the opportunity and then expand sign-ups to the first 10,000 fans total.
