Rick Bonnell: The @greensboroswarm has made a G-League trade to acquire Kobi Simmons’ rights. That’s a move to facilitate Simmons being in @Charlotte Hornets training camp next month.
Greensboro acquires the returning rights to Kobi Simmons and the 14th overall selection in the 2019 NBA G League Draft (originally owned by the Washington Wizards affiliate, Capital City Go-Go) in exchange for the returning rights for Jaylen Barford and the Swarm’s No. 12 pick.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Kobi Simmons to a 10-day contract, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman announced today. Simmons (6-4, 170) has played in 30 games (29 starts) this season with the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers’ exclusively owned and operated NBA G League team, averaging 17.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.3 minutes per game.

J. Michael: Just talked with a 4th league source on this w/direct knowledge: This is the first time TJ Warren has been featured as a main option on a team, will be paid like it, likes the smaller market and the plans for him regardless of the coach. He doesn’t want to go anywhere
During an appearance on ESPN’s NBA Countdown ahead of the Bulls hosting the Boston Celtics, Wojnarowski suggested Lonzo Ball of the New Orleans Pelicans and Dennis Schroder of the Los Angeles Lakers as two potential targets. “Point guard is going to be at a premium for them,” Wojarnowski said.
Dane Moore: Karl-Anthony Towns was asked postgame about his exchange with Jimmy Butler, and Anthony Edwards stepped in to take the answer “Man, they grown men, dog. They just be talkin, havin a regular conversation, if you ask me… It’s no competition if we not talkin shit to each other.” pic.twitter.com/gDEP0hjbVZ
Chris Hine: Ant refuted my question earlier when I said the Wolves were getting a little emotional in the 3rd Q. @JaceFrederick followed up with “Who was getting emotional then, Ant?” Ant: “The zebras.”
Not having the support or revenue of sell-out crowds at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto surely made that decision easier. To little surprise, there are players on the team and people within the organization who have been counting down the days until they can pack their bags, take their families and get out of Tampa on the morning of May 17, per sources. It’s hard to blame them, all things considered.
