During the team’s trip to the Orlando bubble in July, Jaren Jackson Jr. tore the meniscus in his left knee. He returned from the trip early to begin his rehab. His teammate, Justise Winslow, who was also injured in the bubble, is rehabbing his injury with him. “I had a quicker start to my offseason getting healthy again and getting workouts and all that,” Jackson said. “I’ve been basically seeing Justise every day of my life, literally. We’ve been in there grinding. We made it a goal to never have a bad day and we’ve never had a bad day pretty much ever.”

Caris LeVert not fazed by trade rumors

That’s the backdrop under which LeVert opened training camp this week. “This was kind of my first rodeo [regarding rumors],” said LeVert, 26. “Whatever happens, happens at the end of the day. I just try to think about it like that. “I’ve spoken to [general manager] Sean [Marks]. I talked to Sean a lot, a couple times a week. Those things definitely come up, and he’s been an open book, honestly, when it comes to that type of stuff. [We] have a great relationship, so if something does happen, I feel like I’ll know about it. I feel like he’ll tell me.”

Spencer Dinwiddie denied any notion he ever requested a trade from the Nets. He called that rumor “really dumb.” Dinwiddie, who was caught off-guard by the question during a Zoom conference call with reporters on Friday explained he felt he could have commanded more money as a free agent, but opted to sign at a lower number — three years, $34 million — to stay in Brooklyn. “I don’t know anybody that takes less than market value to stay on a team that wants to be traded, you know,” he said. “That’d be bad for business. That would kinda be really dumb.”
Those conversations might take a different tone with Dinwiddie than your average player. He’s representing himself after parting ways with his agent, although he downplayed that oddity during the season and said he’s not in contact with any other interested teams. “That’s like tampering or something, isn’t it?” Dinwiddie said. “People don’t have my number like that. My number isn’t just floating around out there. “My decisions are my own. I’m looking forward to anything that comes next. Remember, this year – the next 6, 8 months, however long this season lasts – there’s not really much to do on that front. It’s going to be much more interesting in the summer. That’s more a time for that conversation; right now it’s all about maximizing the 72 games and trying to win a championship with this group we’ve got.”
With Thompson gone, Love said he never expected he would be the longest tenured Cav from the 2016 champions. Matthew Dellavedova left for Milwaukee after winning the title and was traded back in December 2018. “Daniel Day-Lewis, baby,” Love joked, referring to the actor in 1992 movie The Last of the Mohicans. “As everybody knows, probably after the first week I was here, my name was thrown out — ‘Hey, we might be able to get something for him’ or ‘This would be a great trade’ or ‘Kevin’s name came up’ — with somebody pulling the name out of thin air, whether it was warranted or not. “In a way, it is a little crazy — maybe crazy is the wrong word — but there is something to be said for that. A couple of days ago I was breaking down how this is my seventh year here, my 13th year in the league and now I’m heading into being here longer than I was in Minnesota. It’s crazy how time flies and how fast-fleeting it is, for better or for worse.”
Storyline: Kevin Love Trade?
Ayton said he’s happy his “Valley Boyz” brother wound up in Golden State after the Chris Paul trade landed him in Oklahoma City, but Oubre said he hasn’t heard from Ayton since everything went down. “It’s kind of shocked me he hadn’t reached out to me, but at the end of the day, I understand, man,” Oubre said Friday during a Zoom media call. “He has to continue with the flow of his life and the situation that he’s in. I haven’t really got to luxury to say that we’re still in communication or anything like that, but I wish them all the best.”
