Shams Charania: The Golden State Warriors are planning to sign guard Gary Payton II this weekend, sources tell me and @Anthony Slater. Payton showed a solid defensive presence during his two 10-day contracts.
Texas forward Greg Brown announced Thursday he is turning pro and won’t return to the Longhorns for his sophomore season under new coach Chris Beard. Brown, who is ranked No. 29 in ESPN’s top 100 draft prospects, was a top-10 recruit when he signed with Texas and former coach Shaka Smart.
How it works: Buzzer’s vision is to aggregate sports rights and send fans personalized notifications to make it easy to pop into live games — either through their existing subscription or via micropayments. Fans will be able to authenticate their various subscriptions (cable, YouTubeTV, ESPN+, etc.) through Buzzer. If fans don’t have the subscription required, they can quickly make a micropayment. The NBA deal, for example, offers 10 minutes of game action for 99 cents or a quarter for $1.99.
