Brooklyn Nets Rumors
“I just wanted to ask from the outside looking in, what did he expect from me, what did he think of my game?” Russell said. “I just wanted the raw cut version of what the, I don’t know, what the naysayer what people say about me? I know people say, ‘Oh, defense. Whatever. Not a leader.’ Everything that the norm usually said about me. I wanted to ask him … I wanted to be coached in those situations. I wanted to be better at that. He was just like, ‘With time I’ll give you a better evaluation on what I feel and what I think, but as of right now it’s a clean slate.’”
Kristian Winfield: D’Angelo Russell on Kenny Atkinson: “You’ve got a coach like Kenny, he’s a working guy. Him and the coaches work their tail off. As a player you’re a resemblance of your coach. We’re a working team and that’ll be in our favor this season.”
Shams Charania: Markieff Morris had an aggressive market over the past week — with pursuits from the Thunder, Rockets, Nets, Raptors and several others. OKC received the commitment from Morris on Thursday.
Nets Daily: From Nets PR: D’Angelo Russell (31 points) has recorded his 10th 30-point game of the season. That’s the most for a Net in a season in the Brooklyn era (since 2012-13) and the most for a Net since Brook Lopez’s 10 in the 2010-11 season.
