Gerald signing with the Bucks.

Good for him. Seems to have gotten his act together. Especially after the hurricane and him running around trying to help people.

This is so awesome on so many levels. Hurts the Lakers standings and Rockets, Thunder and Golden State are going to be beaten down come the finals. All we gotta do is outlast Lebron, Love and a hobbled IT

good points.  West is going to be a bloodbath where as we can just kick embiid in the knee first round, wear black to the wizards 2nd round, and destroy lebron and friends

If I'm doing this correctly, they are Ntilikina (Belgium), Porzingis (Latvia), Kanter (Turkey), Kuzminskas (Lithuania), Hernangomez (Spain), Rathan Mayes (Canadian). Maybe Isola counted Noah too, but he has American citizenship.

Thomas Robinson signed with Khimki Moscow (Russian Team).

Looks like that last roster spot will remain open during the season for flexibility.

I hope so. No need to fill it now when there should be much better options later in the year

This is often repeated, but incorrect. We aren't tied to a player we sign and can always waive these veteran minimum players for either injury or performance. The Cavs did it last year with Bogut to Sanders to Tavares.

To call it incorrect is overstating it.  Yes, they can waive players, but they still get paid, so to be generally avoided.  C's did pay Ben Bentil $250k a few years ago, essentially for the flexibility to waive him.  However, waiving bigger contracts is a bad use of resources.

There aren't bigger contracts to waive. We can only sign veteran minimum guys and would only be responsible for less than 1.5 million regardless of his tenure. That figure is also assuming the player received a fully guaranteed deal. What are the resources you're referring to?

Sources: Cleveland, San Antonio and Miami are leaders for Dwyane Wade post-Bulls buyout. OKC could become factor too.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Sixers signed Emeka Okafor for their training camp.  By this point, I didn't think they'd have any Okafor on their roster but now they have two.
