“You look at what Robert Williams does with the Celtics. They don’t really run plays for him,” Hill said. “He goes out there and is a defensive presence. He’s a presence on the boards and makes you change shots. If O can kind of figure out a couple of things like that, that will put him on the floor to have offensive opportunities. “We need someone like that to be an anchor in that second unit, especially with guys like Gallo, myself and Tony (Snell). If he can be that guy who comes in defensively, sets screens and rolls, he can definitely see the floor.”
State Farm Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, has implemented the latest in drone technology as a part of the venue’s cleaning and disinfecting protocols. The award-winning arena has enlisted Lucid Drone Technologies, a cutting-edge drone company based out of Charlotte, NC and its D1 Disinfecting Drone (D1) to help in sanitizing the 17,500 seat venue between events, a first for any NBA arena.
Pierce said the U.S. is trying to simultaneously be pre-emptive and proactive when it comes to figuring out how this summer might work in terms of personnel. ”We haven’t talked about style of play and things like that,” Pierce said. ”I think there’s a lot of other factors that are really important right now leading into that.” The U.S. men will open the Olympics against France – the team that beat them in the World Cup quarterfinals and ended their medal hopes in that event – on July 25. The U.S. men will also face Iran on July 28 and a still-to-be-determined team on July 31.
Sarah K. Spencer: Lloyd Pierce on Bogi’s progress: “It’s been a long process over a long period of time, really just not having him around… To have Bogi around, you get another voice, you get another competitor, another guy that you get closer with & I think it lifts up the spirit of our group.”
