3 rumors in this storyline

Melbourne United has signed former New Jersey Nets big-man, Josh Boone, sources told Boone will join United as a temporary injury replacement, but is expected to be with the team for the remainder of the 2016-17 season, sources said.

Josh Boone: Right now, I’m not visiting some exotic location, or in a night club surrounded by beautiful women. I’m sitting alone in my apartment, surrounded by boxes because I’m packing up and my lease is up on Monday, and hoping for a phone call from one of my agents someday soon, saying there’s a team that wants me to come and play for them. The life of a pro athlete is not always glitz and glamour. Sometimes, it’s total uncertainty; uncertainty of where you will be living next week, what country you will be making your money in, and when that next paycheck may actually come. But despite all of this, I still love what I do, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Raptors bringing back Khem Birch?

Birch certainly gives the impression that he would love to be back with Toronto and it’s hard to imagine the Raptors wouldn’t have a role for him. But he’ll be 29 next season, so the contract will have to be right also. He’s coming off a two-year deal that paid him $6 million and would doubtless like some security on his next deal. “I think [on-court] fit and financial is probably what’s tied right now,” said Birch. “I’ve seen a lot of guys who actually go for financial but they get flushed out after their contracts [are over]. So I think fit is very important because I don’t want to just be the kind of guy who gets money and gets flushed out. I actually want to have a career and play a big part on a championship-level team or just win. That’s my goal.”

Marcus Morris apologized to Luka Doncic

With a first-round rematch between their teams set, Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic said there are no hard feelings remaining from the heated rivalry that he developed with LA Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. during last season’s playoff series. According to Doncic, Morris apologized to him during a game earlier this season about stepping on the back of Doncic’s left ankle in Game 5, a controversial play that the Mavs considered dirty with their star playing on a sprained ankle.
