Mark Montieth: Nate McMillan says it was the shrimp in Orlando that made him and @Domantas Sabonis ill. McMillan nearly didn't make the game last night. Sabonis is a game-time decision. No truth to the rumor that @Kyle O'Quinn ws the one who recommended the shrimp to Sabonis.
J. Michael Falgoust: Sabonis is IN tonight. Not surprising given he was out here this time working out #PacersKings

Nets willing to drag on trade talks for Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving into training camp

With four years left on Kevin Durant’s contract, and Kyrie Irving having opted in to the last year of his deal, the Nets have leverage and every intention of using it. And league personnel say the Nets have implied if they don’t get what they want, this could well drag on into training camp.

How the Nets deal with Joe Harris may be the best indicator of how they plan to proceed.

Taken in the most recent draft at No. 8 overall by New Orleans, Australian product Dyson Daniels is already impressing the Pelicans’ coaching staff. “We’re playing him in scrimmages we’re putting him in multiple spots,” said Pelicans lead assistant coach Jarron Collins, who will coach in Summer League. “Obviously, he can be a primary ball-handler, he can literally play 1-4 and defend every single position.”
There’s a possibility that the son of a former New Orleans NBA great may become an LSU Tiger.
