Joe Ingles: Today hurts… I knew it was a possibility but didn’t want to believe it, we have been lucky to call this place home for 8 years! I got a lot more to say, but I’m going to have a beer & relax with some good friends.. Go get a win fellas! I’ll always be watching ❤️
Tim MacMahon: Joe Ingles last week, in anticipation of being traded: "If I’m able to get someone back that would help them make a push for the end of the year, I understand that. I’m not going to sit here and be sour and upset."
Utah is shopping the expiring contract of Joe Ingles ($13 million) in the hopes of landing a defensive minded wing. There’s interest in Boston’s Josh Richardson but, as noted above, the resurgent Celtics aren’t interested in dumping players, particularly not Richardson, who has emerged as a valued member of Udoka’s rotation.
But, it is more difficult. Ingles himself knows and acknowledges that his contract could be traded by Thursday. He also told the media recently that he would welcome a potential return to the Jazz. The Jazz themselves also are not closing the proverbial book on a potential return, even if he is traded in the coming days.
Jake Fischer on the Utah Jazz: They've done what they can to cater to Donovan Mitchell, in terms of bringing on his buddy Eric Paschall. Royce O'Neale is another player on that team who was very close with Donovan and represented by the same agent. His name has not been brought up as frequently in trade conversations in their quest to add defensive talent on the perimeter as much as Bojan Bogdanovic's and Joe Ingles' names have. Like I don't think that's a coincidence either. And, in fact, someone this summer told me that it's not a coincidence.
League sources say that the Jazz did entertain the prospect of trading Ingles in the offseason, before Ainge joined them, but ultimately decided it couldn’t stomach the culture hit of sending him away. Ainge, as we all know by now, is far less sentimental than most. He’s capable of trading pretty much anyone.
Michael Scotto: Joe Ingles’ name has come up since the draft in trade talks, according to rival executives I’ve spoken to. It’s unclear who’s initiating that, but his name has been brought up.
Ingles is a name to watch up to the trade deadline; in spitballing sessions, a lot of rival executives have wondered what the Jazz might be able to get in exchange for Ingles and a first-round pick. Ingles is on an expiring contract, and has lost maybe an eighth of a step.
If Jazz forward Joe Ingles is indeed available for trade, sources say the Warriors do have interest — just no good way to get him. Ingles, approaching 34, fits the Warriors’ need for a veteran and another offensive playmaker. His passing would fit perfectly with the Warriors. He can run point forward and spot up off the ball, making him viable with the starters and the second unit. He’s got 45 playoff games under his belt. He shot a career-best 45.1 percent from 3 on a career-high 6.1 attempts per game — his third season at 44 percent or above. He’s also reputed for being a great guy and would add to the culture of the locker room.
The most viable option to get Ingles is to see where Oubre Jr. signs and try to convert it into a sign-and-trade. In that scenario, the Warriors would get a traded player exception in exchange for Oubre and they could use that exception to get Ingles, if he is available. But that’s adding $13 million (plus the repeater tax) to what is already the league’s highest payroll. Ingles is good, but is he good enough for Lacob to stomach the added cost? The Warriors could keep the TPE for potential use later, but the same question would come up.
League personnel most often mention Joe Ingles as the Jazz wing to watch, and Bojan Bogdanovic and Royce O'Neale are also considered available for trade as Utah narrows its focus towards building a contender around Donovan Mitchell. The Jazz are also open to discuss trading their No. 30 pick, sources said.
Are Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles really on the trading block? If so, what is the expectation of what they could bring back? — Tanner P. I’m very careful to not throw names out in terms of trades. I haven’t heard either of those names from any of my concrete sources, otherwise, I would have reported it. I know the Jazz want to get better and are all-in on trying to put themselves in a position to win a championship next season. I know that they will be aggressive in pursuit of that goal. That is what I can currently tell you from a factual standpoint.
However, sources suggested that Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles were also bandied about as available if the Jazz could get a significant upgrade, which would be a major shakeup for the team, especially with Mike Conley headed to unrestricted free agency this summer.

RTG Features (Alaskan Nets) and MSM (The Last Dance) have tapped David Charles Rodrigues (Neymar: The Perfect Chao) to direct a new feature doc about the high-scoring NBA trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin —collectively known as Run TMC— and how they set the stage for the present-day dynasty of the world-champion Golden State Warriors, led by Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Billed as “the most fun fun sports doc of all time”, the as-yet-untitled feature will be a three-man weave combining basketball, hip-hop, the Bay Area and late-’80s/early-’90s nostalgia. Mason Gordon will produce for MSM, with RTG Features acting as the studio. 2022 Emmy nominees Coodie & Chike (Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy) developed the film in partnership with RTG and will serve as executive producers.
The doc is currently in pre-production, with shooting scheduled for later this year, when Hardaway is inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame—joining Mullin and Richmond, who were inducted in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
David Hardisty: Brian Windhorst: “As I’ve talked to teams around the league, they think if anything, this (move) maybe restricts (KD’s) opportunity to get traded in the short term. It’s going to make it even harder for teams to want to meet the price that the Nets have already put up so high.”
Overtime is looking to launch new leagues — and now it has an extra $100 million to make it happen. The company raised nine digits in a Series D round led by Formula 1 and Atlanta Braves parent company Liberty Media and Morgan Stanley’s Counterpoint Global team.
Existing investors including Jeff Bezos, Sapphire Sport, and Blackstone upped their stakes. Overtime has raised $250 million to date and claims over 6% of active NBA players have invested, including Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Trae Young. Other investors include Winslow Capital, Spark Capital, Black Capital, Alexis Ohanian, Drake, Quavo, and Micromanagement Ventures, co-founded by late former NBA commissioner David Stern.
