To clear a roster spot for Bogut, the Cavs will have to waive someone, and may do so Wednesday so that player can be eligible for the playoffs with a different team.

The Warriors have no such expectations with Cousins. Next summer — assuming they bring back either Klay Thompson, Durant or both, which would cap them out — they can only give Cousins a 20-percent raise, which jumps him from $5.3 million to around $6.4 million. If he returns healthy and looks like even 80 percent of the player he was before last January’s Achilles tear — an outcome both the player and team desire — Cousins will command way more than that max Warriors number, likely in the high teens per year. And he won’t be in the discount mood, understandably, considering all the money he lost out on this summer.
Could Luol Deng be a stopgap as a small center after sitting out most of last season? The executive said Deng is all but semi-retired. He may never play again in the NBA unless he has a change of heart.
The Cavaliers waived veteran center Kendrick Perkins Tuesday so he could be free to pursue training camp deals, a source told cleveland.com. Perkins, 33, was signed by the Cavs on the final day of the regular season so he could be on their playoff roster. But Cleveland gave him a non-guaranteed, $2.4 million contract for this coming season with the hope it could be used as part of a trade.
The Knicks’ decision to waive small forward Troy Williams on Monday has provided undrafted Arizona guard Allonzo Trier a puncher’s chance at making the 15-man roster following his solid — if overlooked — summer-league performance. Trier is on a two-way G-League contract, allowing him to be on the Knicks’ roster for a maximum of 45 days, with the clock stopping in early April.
He was like us. Not “us” in the old, non-athlete kind of way but in a bigger “us” context. An “us” we could all aspire to and appreciate. He is, as much as possible, normal. He isn’t egotistical or at all self-centred. He put team and others ahead of himself. I don’t remember a lot of “I” conversations or “me” conversations; it was generally “us” and “we” and the team. Admirable. I will fully admit to having a fondness for the young man that transcended an appreciation for his estimable basketball skills.
I liked that he talked to us about his feelings and his life, his kids and his dad’s health issues and, yeah, his battles with demons far too many people suffer with in silence. And the overwhelming sense I got from reading missives on social media yesterday and talking to friends and loved ones was that those were traits you appreciated, too. Normalcy.
