NBA Rumor: Embiid-Simmons Dynamic

One rumor in this storyline

As a Los Angeles Lakers player, Lue won NBA titles in 2000 and 2001 while playing with Hall of Famers and Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, who like Simmons and Embiid didn’t always get along. As a coach, Lue won the 2016 NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron James, one of the best to play basketball, was the headliner of that squad. In addition to being the only candidate with a championship pedigree, he knows a thing or two about dealing with all-time greats.

Without fail, six days a week, Mondays through Saturdays, he visits the Orlando Magic practice facility to rehabilitate his surgically repaired left knee. “This is just what I have to do for now, but there will come a time when I play again,” Isaac told The Athletic in his first interview since he tore the ACL and meniscus cartilage nearly three months ago.

“I still have hope. I still have a purpose. I still have a job that I go to and take care of business. But it’s definitely been my faith that has kept me encouraged and kept me going and the people that I’ve surrounded myself with and keep me lifted up. It’s been swift. I really have no complaints about my rehab process. I feel like my rehab process so far — and I know I still have so much to go — has been second to none in terms of getting through it and my mindset in just getting through it. I haven’t been down. I haven’t been upset. I’m just taking it in stride and moving forward and believing and knowing that God has more for me and this is just a process. This is a part of the journey.”
The Indiana Pacers president Kevin Pritchard joined Frank Isola and Mitch Lawrence on SiriusXM NBA to discuss the hiring of new head coach Nate Bjorkgren. The head of the Indiana Pacers’ front office explained the qualities they saw in Bjorken’s resume as “a person with a winning pedigree, a coach good with Xs and Os and somebody that he is willing to take chances.”
At the time, Isaac’s stance was interpreted by some onlookers as a protest against the Black Lives Matter movement. Isaac said he was trying to promote his Christian beliefs and offer those beliefs as a solution to racial injustice — and was not attempting to denigrate Black Lives Matter. “Everybody’s about solutions,” Isaac said. “People were kneeling and people were wearing the T-shirt. And I completely respect that. That is (people’s) answer or that is a portion of (people) going about rectifying a problem or answering this situation.

Bam Adebayo untouchable?

Back then, it would have taken a Giannis-level budding superstar with a decade of prime in front of him to make Riley consider it. Now? Adebayo is pretty much off the board. A league source tells The Athletic that the Heat “would hang the phone up with F-bombs ringing through the disconnected call” if someone demanded Adebayo in a deal.
