NBA Draft: Lakers interview Duke’s Brandon Ingram

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers fielded most of their basketball operations staff, including general manager Mitch Kupchak, executive vice president of player personal Jim Buss, director of player personnel Ryan West, consultant Bill Bertka and assistant general manager Glenn Carraro. Other attendees included Jesse Buss (director of scouting), Jordan Wilkes (basketball operations assistant), Nick Mazzella (D-Fenders general manager), Rondre Jackson (director of player development) and Chaz Osborne (scout). Role modelThe question inadvertently cut to the heart surrounding the skepticism on Kentucky guard Tyler Ulis.How is he different than every other prospect at the combine?“I’m shorter,” Ulis joked, mindful that he as both the lightest prospect and second shortest player at the NBA pre-draft combine. Ulis may have measured 5-foot-10 in shoes and weighed at 149.2 pounds. In other words. Yet, he looked at a certain Clippers guard who has overcome his short frame with freakish talent and work ethic. “I love watching Chris Paul, his approach the game and passion for the game and how he’s a coach on the floor. He keeps everybody happy,” Ulis said. “I love the way he gets into his teammates and his total approach.” center_img CHICAGO — The NBA executives and scouts either sat in the bleachers or stood behind the basket. Countless players scrimmaged, while others completed shooting, jumping or sprinting drills.None of what those talent evaluators saw on Thursday at the NBA pre-draft combine, however, provided clarity surrounding the top picks. Some draft prospects skipped the event entirely, including LSU forward Ben Simmons and Croatian forward Dragan Bender. Other talent skipped the skills tests and media interviews, including Duke forward Brandon Ingram, Oklahoma City forward Buddy Hield and Kentucky guard Jamal Murray. The Lakers still interviewed Ingram, though they have not had any formal contact with Simmons yet. “I’m talking to you guys because I have no problem talking to the media,” said Providence guard Kris Dunn, who did not interview with the Lakers. “Whatever questions you guys have, I’ll try to answer to the best of my ability.”last_img read more

Adam Silver reportedly tells NBA players return not close, no fans in arenas

first_img— Silver believes the league doesn’t need to decide whether to resume play untll June.— If play does resume, it likely will occur in a “bubble” environment at a central location after at least three weeks of training camp. Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla., and Las Vegas continue to have the most support for being bubble sites. The league is aiming to conduct a full postseason, although it isn’t clear whether regular-season games will be played before then.— The league is bracing for long-term financial hardships. NBA players heard an update Friday from commissioner Adam Silver on coronavirus-related league matters. Silver reportedly provided a lot of straight talk but not a lot of good news.ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that he obtained audio of the call between Silver and players association leadership. From the ensuing article, three items stand out: MORE: Teams allowed to test asymptomatic personnel, tooPlayers have already agreed to give up 25 percent of their salaries for this season in the event the remainder of it is canceled. Further losses of revenue would require more rounds of difficult negotiations. Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Silver told players 40 percent of league revenue comes from fans, who might not return to arenas until a vaccine is developed. Multiple reports have said bubble games will not be open to the public.In a small sign of progress this week, teams were allowed to open their facilities in states where stay-at-home restrictions have eased. Players who want to come in can only work out by themselves. Union leadership told Silver that teams have pressured players to attend, per Charania, but Silver agreed with the players that activities are voluntary.last_img read more
