Second-year pro Derrick White, who had emerged as one of the team’s most important pieces before missing the first five games of the rodeo road trip with a plantar fascia injury in his right foot, traveled with the Spurs to Toronto for the start of leg 2. Though the 24-year-old White has not been formally ruled in for tonight’s game against the Raptors at Scotiabank Arena, he’s listed as probable. Coach Gregg Popovich showed confidence he at least would be ready to return at some point on the trip that moves on to New York on Sunday and Brooklyn on Monday.

Timberwolves sign Leandro Bolmaro

When the Timberwolves traded up to get Leandro Bolmaro last November in the 2020 NBA Draft (yes, it was less than a year ago… it still feels weird), the question was would it be a year or two before Bolmaro came over from Barcelona to play in the NBA. The answer is one. Minnesota reached a deal and Bolmaro will be with the Timberwolves in training camp, the team announced Saturday. This is not a surprise; he was expected to come over this season. He will be playing on a rookie scale contract.

There are reports that Anthony Davis will play center for the Los Angeles Lakers this coming season with LeBron James taking the power forward position. In the past AD said that he does not love playing the five but can do it if needed. Lakers legend James Worthy thinks that the best option is to use the former number one pick in the post. “I think initiating Anthony Davis in the post is the best option,” Worthy said on Spectrum SportsNet. “I’ve never been one of those players to say ‘I don’t wanna play three, I wanna play four. I wanna play.’ I don’t know what the problem is, maybe who he defends or where he is on the floor. I think the five is a good spot for him. Because other fives don’t have a shot at guarding him.
When these outlandish claims air nationally, it doesn’t take long to go viral on social media. When it does, everyone talks about it and shares it everywhere. When the comments are negative, it can result in fans saying disrespectful things, but this comment did something different. “You got a bunch of white kids that repeat ‘I want Iguodala!’ all the time. That’s just a cool thing about it. But when you break down real basketball. Nah, I wouldn’t do that,” the Warriors vet furthered.
Scottie Barnes: I remember walking into the green room after Adam Silver called my name, and some people from the front office were waiting for me. We were shaking hands, and making introductions, and I was so excited I could barely get the words out. But there was one main thing that I really wanted to get across about myself: I’m ready to work. Not ease into it, not half-do things or make excuses because I’m one of the new guys. I’m ready to work. I’m ready to grind. I’m ready to WIN. And I could tell that the feeling was definitely mutual. So, to the fans, I want y’all to hear it straight from me: I couldn’t be happier to be here in Toronto.
