Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Pat Connaughton, who has more skill than Jones and similar hops, is another possibility. The Bucks will likely look to shake up their roster this offseason, targeting steady veteran Chris Paul or any number of trade pieces to help keep 2021 free-agent-to-be Giannis Antetokounmpo from leaving Milwaukee. That could mean letting Connaughton — who averaged 5.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 18.6 regular season minutes while being part of the team’s postseason rotation — walk this fall.

Now, in a recent Instagram post, Durant was less reserved in his criticism of Barkley. BasketballNews.com’s Etan Thomas posted about Barkley’s recent comment that NBA players “deserve some preferential treatment” when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine because of how much they pay in taxes. “Yea, that’ll go over well Barkley smh,” Thomas wrote in the caption. In the comments, Durant responded: “I don’t know why they still ask for this idiot’s opinion.”
Today, on a different IG post, Durant seemed to weigh in on the exchange between Shaq and Mitchell. “Them old heads need to go enjoy retirement,” Durant commented. “These boys have coaches they work with everyday lol.” LeBron James also weighed in: “There’s a difference between constructive criticism and soft hating though. I’ve seen it both ways come my way, mostly the hate. You can hear it in their delivery.”
