Jorge Sierra: Paris Basket has been promoted to France’s top division. The president and co-owner of that club? None other than David Kahn of Minnesota Timberwolves fame.
Rudy Gobert was one of five NBA players named to France’s Olympic men’s basketball roster on Thursday. Gobert, the Utah Jazz center, is joined by fellow NBAers Nicolas Batum, Evan Fournier, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Frank Ntilikina.
Tim Reynolds: Spo said he was happy to learn (he hadn’t heard yet until being asked pregame) that @Norris Cole’s team won the Coupe de France earlier today. Brightened his mood a bit after last night’s debacle.
