NBA Rumor: Chris McCullough Free Agency

7 rumors in this storyline

Chris McCullough’s winding road after the NBA took him to six different countries on six different teams in less than two years. It included a pause following the murder of a friend in the Bronx, and mostly overseas success and joy — with the exception of a regrettable stint in Lithuania and a controversy over a broken-down car. McCullough renovated his game along the way, expanding on the physical talent that elevated him to a Top 10 high school prospect from the Bronx. And now he’s back in the United States with a stated goal and purpose of reclaiming an NBA position, hopeful that his latest basketball endeavor — the $1 million The Basketball Tournament (TBT) — represents a boon to his bank account and a reintroduction to American fans.

The NBA informed teams Monday that players still need to have either received a primary course of a COVID-19 vaccine or been given a medical clearance from getting one in order to play games in Canada, according to a league memo obtained by ESPN. The memo also states that, should players be ineligible to play in games in Canada, teams must list them as, “Out – Health and Safety Protocols,” and that they will lose their pay for any games missed due to not being vaccinated.
This season, the Raptors will play at least 44 games in Canada: preseason games in Edmonton against the Utah Jazz; Montreal against the Boston Celtics; and Toronto against the Chicago Bulls; plus their typical 41 regular-season home games at Scotiabank Arena and any additional playoff games. The same rules apply both to going to Canada to play in a game, as well as for entering the United States. Anyone playing for the Raptors, therefore, would have to be vaccinated in order to play in any game this season. Last season, the Raptors were fully vaccinated.
A few of Fox’s peers also attended the wedding including Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair and Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum. Former Kentucky Wildcats Bam Adebayo and Wenyen Gabriel, who was also Fox’s teammate in Sacramento, attended the wedding. Adebayo and Gabriel were two of the groomsmen at the ceremony.
