Jusuf Nurkic: Man.. another brother leveling 🤦🏻♂️ good luck @Al-Farouq Aminu happy for you my guy ✊🏻✊🏻
Alex Kennedy: Al-Farouq Aminu is drawing interest from the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers, according to league sources.
Jason Quick: If the Trail Blazers and Al-Farouq Aminu are going to come to terms on an extension before Sunday (he's eligible for as much as 4 years and $48 mil) it will be a quick negotiation: Aminu's agent says "I haven't really talked to Neil (Olshey)." (1/2)

If Aminu and Blazers don't agree to extension before Sunday, he becomes unrestricted free agent. Blazers have his Bird Rights, meaning they can go over the cap to sign him. Should be interesting to see what Aminu's market is ..
Al-Farouq Aminu: Headed to Portland with my guy Neil Olshey, who believed in me since day one. Much love. Rip city here I come
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent Aminu Al-Farouq has agreed to a four year, $30 million deal with Portland, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
As mentioned before, the Blazers are also expected to make a run at Dallas Mavericks small forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who Olshey drafted during his days in the Los Angeles Clippers’ front office. The move could be one that replaces Nicolas Batum, who was in the deal that landed Henderson and forward Noah Vonleh in Portland.

And there’s actually a runaway No. 1 as far as the club with the most male basketball players participating: Real Madrid, the team that produced a certain Luka Doncic, who just tied the record for second-most points ever scored in an Olympic basketball contest. The storied Spanish club leads the way with eight players taking part in the Olympic Games this summer, followed by Fenerbahce out of the Turkish League, Australia’s Melbourne United, the Miami Heat (the NBA team with most male basketball representatives in Tokyo), Olimpia Milano (Italy) and Union Olimpija (Slovenia), all of whom have four players at the Games.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver says he’s smoothed things over with LeBron James about his hatred for the play-in tournament … telling TMZ Sports he believes the Lakers superstar now “understands” the purpose for the extra games.
“We talked about it,” Silver told us. “I think at the end of the day, I understand. Especially if you went deep last year and you have that end, you have that many sort of games on your legs.” “You’re not looking forward to more games. But, I think he understands the context of the league.”
