NBA rumors: Nik Stauskas to Spain?

More on Nik Stauskas Free Agency

Stauskas was first acquired by the Cavs in last week’s Rodney Hood trade. Two days later, Stauskas was sent to the Houston Rockets -- part of the three-team deal involving Alec Burks. Then, prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, Houston shipped Stauskas to the Indiana Pacers, where he was ultimately waived. Because he was traded once more by Houston after his brief stop in Cleveland and then waived by another team, in this case Indiana, the Cavs were able to sign him.
The Indiana Pacers announced Friday they have waived Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin. Stauskas and Baldwin were acquired from the Houston Rockets on Feb. 7, along with a second-round draft pick in 2021 and the rights to Maarty Leunen, who is currently playing in Italy.
The Portland Trail Blazers have signed free agent guard Nik Stauskas, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.
Stauskas, 24, holds career averages of 7.0 points (38.6% FG, 34.9% 3-PT, 80.1% FT), 2.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 21.1 minutes in 267 games (63 starts) over four seasons with Sacramento, Philadelphia and Brooklyn. “Nik is a versatile and talented perimeter player that will seamlessly fit into our style of play,” said Olshey.

Brandon Ingram takes All-Star snub as motivation

Jim Eichenhofer: Brandon Ingram, after being asked how he views not being All-Star: “I took it as motivation. Of course, I’ve got to be self-aware, and say that if it was questioned, maybe I’m not doing enough. Maybe I need to get more wins. I’ll be good enough to not have it questioned anymore.”

“I was happy for some of the first time All-Stars in Zach LaVine, Julius Randle,” Shaw said. “He was a player that I coached in L.A. He has gotten better and better every year. I thought that maybe Damian Lillard should have gotten a starting nod. (I’m also happy for) Jaylen Brown, a guy that played at Cal, who I’m familiar with in the Bay area. For him to get an All-Star nod, I thought that maybe he should have gotten one last year.”
