Windhorst on what might a Jrue Holiday deal look like ... if there was Jrue Holiday deal

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via You can’t really call it a rumor. It’s more like speculation ... with supporting evidence still vague. Still, the IDEA of Jrue Holiday becoming the proverbial “third star” keeps getting attention. So, on the ESPN’s Hoop Collective podcast that aired Thursday, there was a healthy discussion of what a Holiday-to-Brooklyn deal might look like among Brian Windhorst, Bobby Marks and Tim MacMahon. None of the trio said they knew anything about whether such a deal is even contemplated by the two teams ... and WIndhorst noted that the fate of...

One big issue, Berman notes, is the G League’s reliance on commercial...

While sports books in Las Vegas and online have the Nets between 8-to-1 and 10-to-1 to win it all and either the favorite in the East or just behind the Bucks, ESPN’s admittedly “way too early” power rankings have them at No. 10. As Brian Lewis writes of the sports books... The Nets’ plus-900 to win the title were the fifth-best odds according to BetMGM. That’s tied for second-best in the East, behind...
