Ice Cube’s BIG3 league is missing out on a major ex-NBA talent who says the league needs to give him a look ASAP … like YESTERDAY, because he’s SURE he has enough game left to compete. The man is Isaiah Rider … who averaged 16.7 ppg over 9 NBA seasons — a serious player — and told us he feels like he’s not getting a fair shake at continuing his hoops legacy in the BIG3. “I been in the draft the last three years … They know I’m available, it’s a buddy league. One of my buddies need to pick me up and stop playing.”

A name to watch could be Kings wing Donte DiVincenzo, now a UFA after Sac didn’t make him QO. Raps had interest in Bucks wing Pat Connaughton’s until he picked up option on his deal. DiVincenzo would meet a lot of the same criteria, is younger, and a better play maker. With the Spurs in tank mode, you wonder if Toronto will try to find a way to deal for Jakob Poeltl. Raptors have tried to reacquire their former draftee multiple times, but never gaining any traction. Perhaps circumstances favour a deal now? It’s got to be killing Raps that OKC’s Lu Dort became an RFA while training under Nick Nurse at OVO Centre w/ Canada Basketball. Not that Raps could realistically sign the elite defender — even if they offered the full MLE, OKC would obviously match. Nice to dream tho. /4.
