Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
Former Atlanta Hawks general manager Wes Wilcox appeared on NBA TV on Monday and discussed six players who could be traded now, later this season and in the future. The list included Oklahoma City point guard Chris Paul, Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love, Washington Wizard shooting guard Bradley Beal, Minnesota Timberwolves small forward Andrew Wiggins, Memphis Grizzlies small forward Andre Iguodala and Booker. Wilcox put Booker and Wiggins in the “future” category. “Of these six names, Chris Paul and (Andre) and Iguodala, we know that they’re in the trade market and they’re available,” said Wilcox during NBA TV’s 2019-20 regular-season schedule release special Monday. “Of these other four names, we can probably take (Andrew) Wiggins and (Devin) Booker into the future,” Wilcox continued.

Here’s a look at some of the top designers who customized NBA shoes last season. Kickstradomis: Sal Amezcua, who goes by Kickstradomis, was into art growing up. His cousin asked if he could restore a pair of shoes, so Amezcua looked it up online and taught himself. From there, he put his art skills to use and started customizing sneakers as a hobby. In 2017, he messaged Karl-Anthony Towns on Instagram to try to get into the NBA market. Towns responded within minutes, and the two began working together. Amezcua made Towns a pair featuring Jason from “Friday the 13th” for Halloween, and it went viral.
