The new CBA will impact the Bulls signing of Sean Kilpatrick in a multitude of ways. For starters, Chicago is still $2M below the minimum salary cap floor. Although Chicago now has $90M counted against the cap, the amount of salary applied to the floor is the amount earned while playing for the Bulls and not the full cap hit. The acquisition of Omer Asik, Noah Vonleh, Willie Reed, Tony Allen and Quincy Pondexter in previous years would have pushed the Bulls above the floor. For trade purposes, only the amount guaranteed (or earned at the time) in 2018-19 and 2019-20 will apply and not the cap hit. For example, if Kilpatrick has a $2M non-guaranteed salary next season, the amount used in a trade will be $0. The Nets will also receive a set-off based on the salary earned with the Bucks, Clippers and Bulls.

Nets G Sean Kilpatrick, now on his second 10-day contract, has been a pleasant surprise for Brooklyn, averaging 13.6 points in his last five games. The 26-year-old journeyman covets stability — and the Yonkers, N.Y. native hopes he’s finally found it. “I’ve been living out of a suitcase I would say for the past six months. It’s crazy, man,” he said. “That’s why when you ask, ‘Do I want to be here (long-term)?’ Like, I’m tired of living out of a suitcase.”

Thunder to trade Vasilije Micic's rights?

Donatas Urbonas on Vasilije Micic: At least for now, there’s a feeling that he’s leaning towards the NBA. But it’s not about OKC, there is no place for Micic in OKC, or at least the place where Micic would be happy about the role he thinks about playing NBA. So his agent is working for making a trade for him. So if Micic is going to the NBA, it’s probably the most likely that there’s some other team which will trade for him.

Udonis Haslem: Draymond Green broke the code

Green made the remark on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” postgame show Thursday night following the Warriors defeating the Dallas Mavericks in five games. “Draymond broke the code,” Haslem told Yahoo Sports after the Heat’s 111-103 victory. “You ain’t supposed to say some s*** like that. That’s disrespectful. He know better than that.”
Reporter: “How you describe Jimmy’s game?” Kyle Lowry: “It’s f***ing incredible! My bad, my bad. Don’t fine me NBA, that was really by mistake, I promise.” Jimmy Butler: “Fine him, fine him. Y’all fine me all the time.”

The Celtics, so celebrated for their defense, made it easy for him. They mishandled the assignment, leaving Butler with a clear path to the hoop, and he pounced, driving for a layup and absorbing contact for good measure. It was a winning play that broke a tie game, along with the Celtics’ resolve. “His competitive will is as high as anybody that has played this game,” Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said.
