Vlade Divac is pushing to consolidate his power as Kings top basketball executive, seriously weighing dismissal of coach Dave Joerger, league sources tell ESPN. Divac/Joerger set for meeting today. Joerger led Kings young core to a 39 win season. He has a year left on deal.

Wolves suddenly seem to have put Ryan Saunders deal on pause.... want Joerger so bad....

Joerger did do some head-butting in Memphis iirc so I wonder if Vlade's maybe not quite 100% to blame for the failure of their interpersonal dynamic.

i do wonder about joerger. apparently he has beef with young players. he may hate the wolves if thats the case.

joeger seems like a pain in the ass, but he can coach

call all destroyer, Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:21 (six months ago) link

maybe he's Scott Skiles 2.0, a guy who can deliver some on-court results but quickly wears out his welcome.

one of the whiteboy youtube basketball celebs might actually be good

High-level Hoop Summit game with a monster showing from Nico Mannion. He was tremendous all week in practice also. Excellent blend of scoring instincts, passing feel, toughness at 6'3. Game comes easy to him. Have been really impressed with him at every stop since the U16 Euros. pic.twitter.com/DMDgE3akN2

i do not believe in the kd kyrie pairing. it's not better than the kd russ pairing and i dont think their surrounding pieces are as good as those okc teams. plus kd may only be 85% of what he was which wont cut it.

Michael Porter Jr looks good but I’m pretty sure he shouldn’t play small forward.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 11 October 2019 17:26 (three days ago) link

hes an elite shooter moves well etc shd be a good player, not sold on his off the bounce game thooo

lag∞n, Friday, 11 October 2019 18:22 (three days ago) link

imagine he will be a 4 but wldnt blame the nuggs for brining him along slowly until hes ready for that physicality considering his injury and age

lag∞n, Friday, 11 October 2019 18:23 (three days ago) link

He’s bigger than I thought and seems like a strong rebounder. Considering his injury history I’d rather have him be a stretch 4 than chasing around smaller guys. But I guess long term either he or Grant needs to play the 3 some.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 11 October 2019 19:38 (three days ago) link

And what about if he’d known Kemba Walker was coming. Horford paused.

They’re gonna really miss redick and shamet tho. I imagine they will be looking hard for shooters In trades or buyouts. Those lineups don’t make sense unless they have some spacing. Their starting 5 might be the best in the league but it’s pretty dire after that.

I'd say Gobert played damn good defense on that play and forced Zion to make a difficult 'touch' basket while he was falling away. That was no gimme. Good for two, but not exactly what I'd call 'beasting' on Gobert.

there was no way for the celtics to keep horford, lose kyrie, and add kemba and i’m pretty sure al knows that which makes that quote extra frustrating.

It could be the year for 7 teams tbf. None of the good teams can afford a starter injury really (warriors already two starters injured, pg is out for at least the first ten games, and now brow for a month it sounds like)

Source tells me Lakers are worried Davis thumb injury is similar to Drew Brees. Surgery would cost him about a month. Chris Paul has similar injury.
