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.

Both players are on a Two-Way Contract that will expire on June 30. Williams and Wallace will be a restricted free agent if the Clippers give a qualifying offer by June 30.

His Real Madrid days are in the past, but Luka Doncic follows his former team in the ACB and EuroLeague whenever his schedule with the Dallas Mavericks permits. These days he’s in Charlotte taking part in various events of the NBA All-Star Game Weekend, but still reiterated: “I always follow EuroLeague and ACB when I have time”. Asked to pick out four teams for the 2019 EuroLeague Final Four, the 19-year-old Slovenian said: “Real Madrid, Fenerbahce, CSKA and Olympiacos”.
The NBA and FIBA plan to launch a professional basketball league in Africa called the Basketball Africa League featuring 12 teams from the continent. The league is scheduled for launch in January of 2020 and will be the NBA’s first collaboration to run a pro sports league outside of North America, and former President Barack Obama, an avid basketball fan, is expected to have a hands-on role.
“The Basketball Africa League is an important next step in our continued development of the game of basketball in Africa,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver in a statement. “Combined with our other programs on the continent, we are committed to using basketball as an economic engine to create new opportunities in sports, media and technology across Africa.”
The NBA 2K League will have $1.2 million in its prize pool for the 2019 season, up $200,000 from the inaugural season last year. Players will receive a base salary of $33,000 for a six-month commitment, with up to $38,000 for players retained from the 2018 season. Meanwhile, the prize pool will be spread out over four tournaments and the league playoffs, with $120,000 up for grabs in the season-opening “THE TIPOFF” tournament. “THE TURN” and “THE TICKET” tournaments each will have $180,000 available in prize money, while the league playoffs will be worth $720,000.
It appears Lonzo Ball found a place to spend some of his time away from the court in recent weeks. Ball and Lance Stephenson dropped a new song titled ‘Swerve’ heading into the All-Star weekend. And, unlike some of Ball’s recent works, it’s a surprisingly good song. The song is based, more or less, on swerving other girls for the ones both Stephenson and Ball have now. While the beat is nice, Ball’s flow, one of his best attributes as a music artist, is highlighted in this song. Unlike his recent song with manager DMo titled ‘Geturmerch,’ this song is much better with strong verses from Stephenson and Ball both.
