Melo Trimble has signed a one-year deal with Spanish basketball club Montakit Fuenlabrada, he confirmed to InsideMDSports. The team plays in Spain’s top league, Liga ACB, and needs help after going 5-17 last season, its worst since 1995-1996. The deal allows Trimble to leave if he receives an NBA offer. Multiple NBA teams expressed interest in Trimble earlier this year, but the COVID-19-related shutdown ended those conversations. “I’m still pushing for the NBA. No multi-year deals yet,” Trimble said.

Joel Embiid believes Ben Simmons situation can be fixed

Though it doesn’t look good right now, the Sixers continue to insist that their preferred outcome at this point is to bring Simmons back and try to work through this. Embiid has publicly stumped for Simmons and privately insisted they can turn this around if they simply get him back in the gym and around the team. Rivers does not believe this will be an issue in the locker room, using an example from his own playing days to show these situations can be rectified.

The Simmons-Rivers relationship has been one of many issues in question as this has played out over the summer. Sources with knowledge of the situation have noted throughout the offseason that mending that relationship would be one of the most important steps toward potentially making this work, even if temporarily, and there has been little-to-no progress on that front. Simmons’ buy-in has been described as “low” or “non-existent” by team sources in recent weeks, with the head coach and player rarely speaking since the season ended in late June.
Vogel hopped on Spectrum’s “LakeShow” podcast on Wednesday and shed some light on AD’s apparent physical transformation this summer. Clearly, Davis’ new look has Vogel feeling particularly optimistic about the upcoming season. “He put a lot of work this off-season into his body, a lot of work,” Vogel said. “We had a moment maybe two weeks ago, where he had been training at home and we had a lot of conversations about concerns we have with our team … And (AD) comes in for a workout, the first time we’ve seen him for a while, and his body looked imposing.

A NBA team parting ways with its president of basketball operations a week before training camp would be remarkable in any circumstances, but the Minnesota Timberwolves’ decision to move on from president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas was even more notable for one simple reason; they forgot how to spell their own franchise name. In both a statement (which was quoted verbatim by several reporters, including the spelling mistake) and a release, they called themselves the “Timberwovles”:
