With the NBA season more than halfway to its end, Tyler Lydon again finds himself a free agent mulling his options. The former Pine Plains star said he’s considering the possibility of playing for a team overseas. In the meantime, Lydon is giving back while remaining in basketball form in the process. He is lending his expertise to local athletes by “bouncing around” area gyms to work out and teach younger players the ins and outs of the game.

A free agent again, Lydon said he’s had some opportunities to potentially play overseas, but isn’t in a hurry to make a commitment. “Right now I’m just kind of staying ready, seeing what comes about, not really rushing into anything,” Lydon said. “I’m going to sit down and talk to my family for whatever the best move is for me.”
The Sacramento Kings made a series of moves today, according to General Manager Vlade Divac, as Sacramento exercised the Standard NBA Contract Conversion Option on forward Wenyen Gabriel and claimed guard/forward DaQuan Jeffries off waivers.

Sean Cunningham: The Kings have reached a two-year deal (league minimum & partial guarantee) with former Nuggets 6-10 F Tyler Lydon, league source says. He had his option declined by Denver, only appeared in 94 games after being selected in the 1st round by Denver in 2017.
Bobby Marks: Sacramento roster is now up to 18 players- including Kyle Guy and Wenyen Gabriel who are on a Two-Way. Forward BJ Johnson is on a $1.4M non-guaranteed contract with no trigger dates for protection.

Marc Stein: Yet I can unreservedly say that this old newspaper nerd is absolutely entranced by this platform and all of its possibilities … as much as I miss the honor of seeing my words printed on the NYT’s pages. I can honestly say, with gratitude and relief, that I thought I would miss the printed word more. It doesn’t torment me nearly as much as I anticipated when I see a Times rack and know that there is a zero percent chance that I have a story on those pages. I’m too busy trying to map out what to write next and when to print it to best connect with my loyal (and patient) readers, whose faith and support make it possible for me to cover the league as an independent journalist. All the costs attached to proprietary reporting — like travel, health care, etc. — fall almost fully on me now, so the assistance is vital in helping me produce the best possible content.
