Even with a firm direction, expect to hear the Suns in continuous trade rumors

Even with a firm direction, expect to hear the Suns in continuous trade rumors

Phoenix is still one big move away from contention, and they will continue to pop up every time a star becomes available until they put their assets to use. For a team that has been quiet all offseason — the only move being re-signing Alan Williams to a three-year, $17 million deal with only the first season fully guaranteed — the Suns have continuously stayed in the news cycle one way or another. And for a roster littered with youth, that’s to be expected at this point of the rebuild. After general manager Ryan McDonough tried to make a contender on the fly around Goran Dragic,...

Lakers two-way guard Alex Caruso is excited for his first ‘legit shot’ to play in the NBA

Lakers two-way guard Alex Caruso is excited for his first ‘legit shot’ to play in the NBA

He’ll spend some time in the G League as well, but it looks like he’ll get some NBA chances this season as well. Now that he’s secured one of the Los Angeles Lakers two two-way contracts for the upcoming season, undrafted point guard Alex Caruso says his NBA dreams are finally starting to feel real. “The fact that I’m so close (and) I’ve put in so much work from high school to now, each year that passes it becomes more of a reality that I have a legit shot to play in the NBA,” Caruso told Colin Deaver of KAGS News in a televised interview. “That fuels me to keep going.

D’Angelo Russell says he was ‘excited’ when the Lakers traded him

D’Angelo Russell says he was ‘excited’ when the Lakers traded him

He sounds ready for a new start in Brooklyn. The Los Angeles Lakers’ decision to use D’Angelo Russell as a sweetener in order to dump the remainder of Timofey Mozgov’s deal on the Brooklyn Nets was the most surprising and controversial move of the team’s offseason. It was a fitting end to the Lakers’ career of one of the most polarizing players the team has had in quite some time, with the move’s detractors crying out about bad process and giving up on a young player too early and its supporters trumpeting cap space, dreams of LeBron James and Paul George and Russell’s lack...

Lakers-ish News: Jay Z confirms he’s a Big Baller, has ordered three pairs of ZO2’s

One pioneer respects another. Jay Z may be a former part-owner of the Brooklyn Nets, but it’s a young Los Angeles Lakers point guard whose shoe brand he’s supporting with his wallet. During an appearance on TIDAL’s “Rap Radar” podcast, Jay Z admitted he respects Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and his father LaVar Ball’s vision to blaze their own trail by creating Big Baller Brand and their own signature shoes (transcription via SLAM, and some language NSFW). “LaVar Ball, he said, ‘I’m gonna start my own company.’ Everybody’s like, ‘You should sign to Nike.’ He may go...

Kevin Durant condemns Trump, says he won’t visit White House

The NBA Finals MVP said that he will not celebrate his first NBA Championship at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue if asked, even though a celebratory visit to the White House is something he has wanted to do since he was a kid. File this situation neatly to: Another U.S. Citizen Whose Dreams Are Crushed, Thanks to Donald J. Trump. Kevin Durant’s sharp, yet insightful statements about the prospect of fulfilling a lifelong dream to celebrate an NBA Championship with a trip to the White House indicate he is of the same mind.

Stranger Things than the Phoenix Suns, Vol. 2

It’s August. Oh boy is it August. Even without a calendar or thermometer, it is painfully clear what month we’re in, as NBA free agent news, summer league action, and rampant trade speculation has given way to news about NBA 2K player ratings, the ever exciting regular-season schedule, and speculation over jersey color schemes. But that doesn’t mean there’s no news anywhere. There is. Happening every day if you can believe it. Why in just the last couple months a private company in Europe moved a step closer to a working fusion reactor, an iceberg the size of Delaware broke free of...

How will the Kings stretch the floor?

How will the Kings stretch the floor?

Our front office seemingly ignored the modern power forward in free agency. Last season, the Kings were one of the best teams in the league at one thing: shooting the long-ball. In fact, they tied for the fourth best 3-point percentage in the league, nailing 37.6% of their attempts from beyond the arc. The majority of guards, wings, and bigs that spent significant time on the court were able to knock down shots, especially in the latter part of the year. In the post-Boogie era, the Kings accuracy increased by 4.2%, going from 36.5% prior to the trade, all the way to 40.7% which was behind...

Why the Lakers should bring Tony Allen to training camp

With one spot remaining on their training camp roster, we examine if the Lakers should give a nod to the best defender Kobe Bryant claimed he ever faced in his career. The offseason is all but over for the Los Angeles Lakers, as Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka all but concluded their first splurge into free agency after bringing the camp roster to 19 with the addition of a number of young players and prospects. The Lakers lack the cap space to make any significant moves, whether it be chasing one of the few remaining restricted free agents of consequence or leveraging their space for assets...

Around the NBA: the Cleveland Cavaliers’ terrible, horrible, no good, very bad offseason

Everything you need to know about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ offseason, and why so much of the blame falls on one man: owner Dan Gilbert. The Cleveland Cavaliers may have lost to the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals 4-1, but they were in a good position going into the offseason. There’s no doubt that the Cavs were the second best team in the NBA last season: they only lost one game in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. They still have the best player in the league, LeBron James. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love performed well in the playoffs, and the Cavs actually had a few assets to...
