Darren Wolfson: Former @DLSislanders star Tyrell Terry is expected to connect virtually with the #Timberwolves/#Twolves before the week is over. He’s already chatted with a handful of teams. Intriguing draft prospect. Kicked butt at Stanford his freshman year.
The Washington Wizards have been gathering as much information as possible by interacting with prospects on video conference calls. They recently spoke with Immanuel Quickley of Kentucky and have plans this week to interview Jalen Smith of Maryland, NBC Sports Washington has learned. Both players are projected first round picks. The Wizards also interviewed Arizona big man Zeke Nnaji, who is expected to fall in the late second round or go undrafted.
With in-person visits sidelined because of the COVID-19 pandemic, teams can hold only video chats with prospects. Hazan said McClung had met with 11 teams as of Tuesday, with more scheduled. According to a source, those teams include the Rockets, the Bulls and the Nets. At least one team mentioned to McClung the potential of signing a two-way contract should he go undrafted. Such deals allow teams to freely use players in the NBA and G League.

Salman Ali: Rafael Stone: “Gerald and I have talked a lot over the past couple days. And it’s a little bitter sweet. Like I told him, I had to retire from playing when I was 22. So he had a lot better career than I did.”
Rylan Stiles: Mark Daigneault on Gabriel Deck “Gabi has done a good job in camp. He has a refine game. I think he has an opportunity to grow inside the NBA game… he is not in the rotation right now but we take a 1-17 attitude to development and readiness.” Says Deck is learning the NBA game.
Christian Clark: Willie Green on Josh Hart: “Right now it’s day to day. But that could change. If we get an update that he’ll be out longer, we’ll keep you guys aware of it. But right now, it’s more day to day. We’ll see how he feels.”
