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.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:11 (seven months ago) link

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

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:20 (seven months ago) link

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

call all destroyer, Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:21 (seven 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.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 11 April 2019 18:26 (seven months ago) link

was thinking the same, doesnt seem like the right guy for the wolves moody millennials

The Grizzlies dismissed coach J.B. Bickerstaff and reassigned GM Chris Wallace to a scouting capacity in the front office, league sources tell ESPN. VP John Hollinger will also move into a senior advisory role.

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.

Let me clear up the confusion. I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk About that.

i'm playing fantasy basketball for the first time in like a decade. do we have a thread for advice? Lonzo or Derrick White as my back up PG?

someone make an ILX league!

Jeff Bathos (symsymsym), Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:14 (one month ago) link

i think White is better in a roto league...Lonzo has better counting stats but terrible percentages, White is more efficient

Jeff Bathos (symsymsym), Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:15 (one month ago) link

yeah i guess i know what i'm getting with White, but Lonzo's still intriguing

Heez, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:17 (one month ago) link

Take Lonzo and punt FG%

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:31 (one month ago) link

Honestly lonzo’s percentages shouldn’t be a huge issue because his attempts will be low

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:31 (one month ago) link

Looks like White will get less minutes this season with Murray back

Heez, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:42 (one month ago) link

yeah lonzo could have a big year too...still, 437 career percentage from the line. he's better in a points league or head-to-head

Jeff Bathos (symsymsym), Wednesday, 16 October 2019 16:58 (one month ago) link

I feel like stacking Lonzo with a center who’s good at the line is the play

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 20:13 (one month ago) link

Get Dejounte Murray instead of White imo
