Gina Mizell: The #Suns are signing Emanuel Terry to a 10-day contract, league sources tell The Athletic. My dude @NickKosmider wrote a hell of a story about Terry when he was on the Nuggets’ summer league roster last summer.

Bobby Marks: Clint Capela has now met the minutes criteria in his contract. The center has now played 2,000 minutes and is eligible for a $1M bonus if Houston reaches the Western Conf. Finals. Capela also has bonuses for free throw and defensive rebounding % that he is unlikely to reach.
Matt Velazquez: Asked Giannis about him and the team watching Marques Johnson’s jersey retirement. @Eric Nehm followed up by asking him if it made him think about the future. “It’s too far, man. I’ll think about that probably 30, 40 years from now.” I told him it probably won’t take that long.
Rick Bonnell: Jeremy Lamb swishes off the glass from beyond mid-court, at the buzzer, to beat the Raptors in Toronto. As Lamb said, “That was crazy.”

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said on Sunday that he wants his team to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and secure home-court advantage in the team’s final season at Oracle Arena. But as his group heads into the final 10 regular season games of its season, the overall health of the group will take precedent over any playoff positioning. “Health always comes first,” Kerr said prior to Sunday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. “So each player we look at individually.”
Kerr said the Warriors will play to the end and try to earn the home-court advantage. “The only way that would happen is if we were mathematically out of it,” Kerr said. “And then at that point maybe you make a decision, but it hasn’t even entered my mind. We’re just going for the one seed and trying to stay healthy and do all that at once.”
