Brunson has thus far been resistant to accepting the four-year, $56 million extension that Dallas can offer him through June. The estimated $56 million figure is the most the Mavericks can offer Brunson working off his bargain $1.8 million salary in the final year of Brunson’s original four-year deal. The former Villanova star, who for the last two seasons has proven to be the most reliable Maverick not from Slovenia, is said to want more … something in the $18 million range annually.

Raptors feel they can put together the best trade package for Kevin Durant

There’s an increasing possibility we’re going to find out.

Nate Randle: An open letter to Rudy Gobert: You are the most respectful and considerate athlete I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a former Utah Jazz employee and fan, you will be missed. I have spent 15+ years of my career in sports and have seen it all. Most don’t carry themselves as you do. When we launched the #TakeNote campaign, you were the first player to adopt it. When I said thanks for tweeting it, you sincerely asked me to tell the entire marketing team how much you loved it.
