That and more in Saturday’s NBA newsletter.
SOME DRAFT STUFF: We didn’t squeeze many NBA Draft analysis links in Friday’s newsletter, so let’s hit that now.
ON HIBBERT AND THE BLAZERS: Super good stuff from Zach Lowe on the future of the Pacers and Blazers.
SPEAKING OF WHICH … It’s kind of crazy how badly the Hornets wanted Frank Kaminsky. The Celtics offered six picks to move up so they could grab Justise Winslow. Charlotte said no.
DAJ STATUS: Four teams are making the press for DeAndre Jordan, and one of them is the Milwaukee Bucks! Man, I hope they add a major piece this summer.
EUROPE HAS SNEAKER DRAMA TOO: Dragan Bender, who is a potential top five pick next year, won’t play for Croatia’s U19 team because of a shoe dispute.
That’s it for me. Happy Saturday and see you on Monday.
