Damian Lillard: I think that’s the stage we’re at as a team where we all, not just me, not just my teammates, not just our new coaching staff, the front office, everybody in this organization must look in the mirror because we’ve constantly come up short. We have to look in the mirror and say I have to be better because whatever it is we’re doing is not working and it’s not giving us the shot to compete on the level that we want to compete on.

Jon Krawczynski: Really nice prestart to free agency for Wolves to get Taurean Prince wrapped up. Valuable piece as a leader and do-it-all forward. The second year on the deal is nonguaranteed, sources tell @TheAthletic. @Adrian Wojnarowski first on agreement.
Bobby Marks: Prince is extension eligible because he is still under contract by Minnesota. He would have become a free agent later this week if a deal had not been reached. There is no trade restriction because he signed a 2 year deal.
Michael Scotto: Sources: The Cleveland Cavaliers won’t tender a qualifying offer to center Moses Brown, @HoopsHype has learned. The 7-foot-1, 22-year-old center will become an unrestricted free agent. Brown could be an intriguing development option for NBA teams around the league.
JD Shaw: Point guard Jared Harper will be playing summer league with the New Orleans Pelicans, @HoopsRumors has learned. Harper signed a two-way deal in March and will soon be a free agent. He averaged 21.2 points and 7.2 assists in the G League.
Damichael Cole: Ja Morant came out to the Mt. Moriah Precinct court today, played 1v1 vs. some kids and Griddy’d his way onto the court. These are the moments the kids in Memphis will always remember, like how when Zach Randolph & Penny would just casually show up at schools. Memphis’ superstar.
