Brooklyn Nets Rumors
Spencer Dinwiddie still hasn’t rejoined the Nets. After partially tearing his right ACL in December, he has been rehabbing in Los Angeles and was expected to at least meet up with his teammates at some point. Recent reports have suggested Dinwiddie could play if the Nets reach the NBA Finals — set to begin July 8 — but sources have maintained it’s unlikely.
Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said Saturday that he wasn’t aware of the Bucks contacting the league to look into the matter, but he added that he didn’t think it would be right for a security guard to put his hands on a player. “If it’s a Nets security guy and he’s bumping our player and things like that, it doesn’t seem like that’s the protocol, and that’s kind of what we would expect from any type of security, whether it be Bucks or Nets or Fiserv or Barclay’s Center or wherever you may be playing,” Budenholzer said. “I don’t think you want to bump and escalate things.”
“You don’t really guard him one-on-one, you guard him by committee,’’ Griffin said Saturday after practice. “For the most part, we’ve done a solid job. I know he’s got points here and there, he had points in the last game, but we’re just trying to make it tough on him. Being physical, giving him some space, but he’s a two-time MVP so he’s going to get shots. You can’t overreact to certain things. We’ve got to stay on it and tweak a few things and be better, but overall, I think we’ve done a solid job.’’
Joe Vardon: Filed to @The Athletic: Nets security guard with ties to Kevin Durant who shoved P.J. Tucker will not be courtside for any more games this series, and not permitted to work at all in Milwaukee. Story coming.
Brian Lewis: Jrue Holiday, who knows both Kevin Durant & KD’s bodyguard: “I guess my man was doing his job. But he bumped Tuck kinda hard so I don’t know if he’s supposed to do that…I feel like its something the league has to deal with or the teams have to deal with.” #Nets #Bucks #NBA
