Is there any news about possible buyout candidates other than Jeremy Lin? I haven't heard anything about Garett Temple (my favorite going in) or another wing. Are there rumors I'm missing?

I'm really sorry we had to include Shamet for Harris. Shamet is a perfect fit for this team right now...

I like Shamet, but what would he get, 12 mins on this team?

don't get me wrong, i like boban. he's like one of those cool gadgets in the skymall magazine. however he will not be in the playoff rotation and probably wouldn't be surprised if he gets zero minutes against the likes of tor/mil. brown either can't forget about bolden or probably the better option is to fully take the cover off the simmons point center experiment. he's been seeing some time there lately, including yesterday when the lakers went small late in the 4th. i think some of the new bench acquisitions allows him to do it both better and more often.

Wait, so this happened a month ago, then Magic brings it up right after the trade deadline?

Silver has to sack up and do something about this.

Nothingburger. Do we really think Ben is so weak-minded and easily manipulated that a conversation with Magic is going to transform him into a Laker zombie?

Oh wait. He’s dating Kendall Jenner.

The issue is publicly discussing it.

What a scumbag organization. They should forfeit a draft pick.

Actually there are several issues with it, even if the actual meeting isn't a big deal. If Magic doesn't want to follow the rules that the other 29 teams adhere to he shouldn't be president of an NBA team or whatever.

i like magic, but he does think he's above the NBA and no rules apply to him. silver should probably send jerry in there to "consult".

In that context, it doesn't sound so strange to me on Simmons' end if he's got multiple Hall of Famers lined up to talk to. Brand did the strong thing to shield him from Magics known manipulation and any possible implications.

Pretty good interview with Brand on Gargano's show today (second half of hour two, on the podcast version). He sounded really confident about Butler and his long-term prospects here fwiw
