Royce O’Neal Rumors
O’Neale joins Muscala as the only other eligible player with over 60% of their shots taken with a defender six or more feet away. He’s shooting 41.6% from three when wide-open for the season, but, most interestingly, he shows an innate ability to predict the future. O’Neale consistently got more distant over the months of the season, peaking at 80% of his March field goal attempts happening with a six-foot minimum gap.
The Miami Heat were at least able to pick up some sort of victory while the NBA is suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. On Saturday, Heat forward Meyers Leonard led his team to a victory in a Call of Duty tournament for NBA players. The match was broadcast on Twitch, a live streaming platform for gamers. Leonard teamed with NBAers Donovan Mitchell, Zach LaVine, Mario Hezonja and high school player Bronny James, son of LeBron James. They defeated a team comprised of Josh Hart, Ben Simmons and Royce O’Neale and high school player Terrence Clarke.
Eric Walden: Quin Snyder, on Royce O’Neale’s contract extension; “Well-deserved, and earned. … He’s just worked from the time he’s got here. … The best thing that you can say about Royce is he helps your team win games. It’s rare to have a guy that’s that selfless.”
The NBA Trade Deadline is already crazy, but here’s a picture of Adam Sandler joining the Utah Jazz for practice to make your brain collapse in on itself. You can see Sandler pictured with Donovan Mitchell, Derrick Favors, Royce O’Neale, and Jae Crowder.
Sources tell The Tribune that the Jazz value Sefolosha’s locker room presence and leadership off the floor. Indeed, Sefolosha was able to make an instant impact on the likes of Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neale.
