Under new media rules, after you pass your COVID test, you go to your assigned seat and stay there. Period. Unless you need a bathroom break. From the Nets’ media seats in the 200 level (think “corner of the arena, halfway up”) one could see a pair of security guards come onto the court during every timeout, but there was nothing for them to do except go through the motions and look busy. There was no one inside the arena for them to crowd control.

Kellan Olson: Ayton was asked if he is happy here and he said “Yeah, I’m alright. When I’m inbetween those lines now I just work. I’m not playing for myself. I have an organization across my chest and a name on my back I have to represent. I’m just here to work, man.”
Darnell Mayberry: Andre Drummond on why he signed with the Bulls: “It felt like the right fit. This is a team that’s very young, hungry and in a great position to do something special. I want to be a part of that.”
Dane Moore: Karl-Anthony Towns did not participate in the first day of Timberwolves training camp today because he’s still dealing with an illness, according to Chris Finch. Finch said he hopes to have Towns in camp by the end of the week.
