You’re a restricted free agent. With all the uncertainty in the world, do you have any nerves of not finding a home for next season or do you think you’ve done enough to play in the NBA next season? Chris Chiozza: I’m pretty certain that I’ll find somewhere. I’m not really trying to think about it too much. I take it day by day. Just focusing on what I can control. Free agency isn’t something I can control. I’m just going to let everything play out and hope for the best.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver spoke of a possible return once there’s an “all clear” from public health officials, according to ESPN. If and when that happens, the Nets would likely want to use Chiozza in the playoffs, but to do so they’d have to convert him from a two-way player to a standard NBA deal. That would necessitate creating a roster spot for the 24-year-old, which would require waiving somebody. Pinson would be the most likely casualty, a tough one for the immensely popular second-year pro from North Carolina.

Kevin Durant on Charles Barkley: I don't know why they still ask for this idiot's opinion

Now, in a recent Instagram post, Durant was less reserved in his criticism of Barkley. BasketballNews.com’s Etan Thomas posted about Barkley’s recent comment that NBA players “deserve some preferential treatment” when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine because of how much they pay in taxes. “Yea, that’ll go over well Barkley smh,” Thomas wrote in the caption. In the comments, Durant responded: “I don’t know why they still ask for this idiot’s opinion.”
Today, on a different IG post, Durant seemed to weigh in on the exchange between Shaq and Mitchell. “Them old heads need to go enjoy retirement,” Durant commented. “These boys have coaches they work with everyday lol.” LeBron James also weighed in: “There’s a difference between constructive criticism and soft hating though. I’ve seen it both ways come my way, mostly the hate. You can hear it in their delivery.”
