Zach Lowe: A number of front office guys recommended the Hawks to me last night. What about the Hawks for Tobias? You know they want to win, really want to make the playoffs. I don’t see it. I just doesn’t feel like a Travis Schlenk player to me. I think if in the when they’d move to get a veteran in there, they will really prioritize defense because they know they need a lot of defense around Trae Young.
One front office source told me that he believes Horford and Harris aren’t any more tradable than CP3; if teams don’t want to take on Horford or Harris, it would be tough for the Sixers to cobble together the salaries to make a deal work for any of the fantasy trade targets like Paul or Kyle Lowry or Jrue Holiday.

Michael Singer: Michael Malone on if coaching Jokic adds pressure: “I look at it as a blessing. How many guys have the opp. to coach a great player, a high character person, on & off the court, a guy that every day when he comes to the facility, is in a good mood. There’s not many superstars.”
Mirjam Swanson: OKC coach Mark Daigneault on SGA’s ongoing evolution: “He wants to be a part of a team, he wants to enhance a team … as he conntinues to develop. When you add those intangibles for a player of his caliber, it’s really exciting what kind of player he can become.”
