Wow, I am so far removed from the NBA, I don't recall ever hearing of the 2 players in the trade with Meyers.
Come on back. It's as good as it's ever been.

Really? I watched about a dozen games this year and it was horrible to watch. Idk, to each his own I guess.

It is horrible to watch, when in half court 4 guys play while 6 watch.

Did a quick run through on the NBA Summer League Rosters. Saw Kendrick Nunn (Heat) and Rayvonette Rice (Suns). Did I miss anybody who wore the Orange & Blue?

If the Bulls don't trade for Russell Westbrook, the United Center should be burned to the ground.

I can't think of a worse move for the franchise.

So they'll probably do it.

Apparently he has been playing in the Iranian professional basketball league. What a strange destination.

Not sure where to put this, but Kendrick Nunn picks up an extra $100,000 for being on Miami's roster on August 1. Big date is making the roster on opening day, that earns him another $450,000, Congrats to KNunn!!

KNunn with 40 tonight. I would think that cements him a spot on the final team.

I think the original KN (not Kipper) will easily make the Heat roster. I know some look down on him because of his incident, but he was an unbelievable competitor as an Illini...one of my favorites on that roster. If he didn't get booted, I reckon Illini would have made tournament and JG would still be here...JG departing may be silver lining with KN incident. He seems to have learned from mistake and flourishing beyond Illini. I will be cheering for him....and warriors may be having regrets letting him slip away.

Kendrick Nunn, went from g-league, to starter on Miami’s opening night, and currently has 24 points, 2 rebounds, and 3 assists under his belt. Against the grizz no less, but still an UDFA vs. No. 2 pick (Ja). He didn’t finish his college career off here, but glad to see a former Illini repping, Meyers on the other hand with 0 points in 19 minutes
