Lakers could start Russell Westbrook, Patrick Beverley together

Los Angeles Lakers Russell Westbrook

Longtime heated rivals Patrick Beverley and Russell Westbrook could share the Lakers backcourt at times.

New Lakers coach Darvin Ham said he’s willing to pair them together, but with one caveat.

“If they play defense,” Ham told ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk and other media members. “We’ve got awhile. That’s still a ways off, but definitely. People get caught up in the starting lineups a lot, but you look at who is finishing games. Those starters, they’re out there to set that tone for the entire team throughout the game. But, I’m not scared of that. It’s definitely a bullet in the chamber. We’re looking forward to it man, those guys in the backcourt together.”

The introductory press conference for Beverley, who was acquired from the Jazz late last month, included a twist: It was attended by Westbrook, who even threw a towel to Beverley as he wiped away sweat after a workout.

Their rivalry goes back to the 2013 playoffs, when Beverley dove for a steal and Westbrook suffered a meniscus tear. They were talking trash to each other as recently as last season but now appear willing to coexist, the Los Angeles Times’ Dan Woike relays.

“A player with that competitive spirit, that fire, that will, that dog, that nastiness, that grit, to have a running mate like that, I have never had that,” Beverley said of Westbrook. “So I am super excited to see where it goes. Obviously like any relationship or any marriage, things, we are going to have tough conversations. That is what comes with winning but I am excited about those conversations, I am excited about the practices.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) held out of Greece’s most recent EuroBasket game

Minor knee pain was enough for Greece’s national team to hold out Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo from its EuroBasket contest on Monday, Kirk Goldsberry of ESPN writes. He wasn’t needed, as Greece posted a 93-77 victory over Great Britain.

Giannis AntetokounmpoMilwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) reacts after being called for a foul during the second quarter against the Boston Celtics during Game 6 of the second round for the 2022 NBA playoffs at Fiserv Forum.

“He had discomfort in his knee but nothing major,” Greece head coach Dimitris Itoudis said.

Greece will enter the knockout phase of the tournament this weekend, though Antetokounmpo might return to action Tuesday against Ukraine.

We have more Eastern Conference info:

  • The Knicks made a series of mistakes and botched negotiations with the Jazz regarding a potential Donovan Mitchell trade, Alan Hahn opines in a Substack post. They potentially alienated some young players and essentially sent a message to RJ Barrett that he’s not destined for stardom despite giving him an extension. They also overestimated the value of protected draft picks and the package they offered for Mitchell before Utah completed a deal with the Cavaliers. It now calls into question the franchise’s overall strategy, Hahn adds.
  • Sixers wing and Turkish national team member Furkan Korkmaz was allegedly attacked by Georgia players after he was ejected from a EuroBasket contest. One of those alleged attackers was Pacers’ big man Goga Bitadze, sportscaster Ismal Senol tweets. Whether or not that’s true, there’s no precedent for the NBA to dole out punishment to a player for his actions in FIBA games, John Hollinger of The Athletic tweets. Nenad Krstic, Thon Maker and Nicolas Batum were not disciplined by the NBA for past incidents that occurred in FIBA tournaments, Hollinger notes.
  • ICYMI, the Celtics are expected to apply for a disabled player exception due to Danilo Gallinari‘s knee injury.

Donovan Mitchell trade: How the Cavaliers managed to take a nearly risk-free swing on a 25-year-old All-Star

How the Cavaliers managed to take a nearly risk-free swing on a 25-year-old All-Star

NBA rebuilds have grown increasingly homogenous in recent years. While there are slight variations in the process, they mostly tend to follow some version of this cycle:

  • Be bad for a few years. Accumulate lottery picks.
  • Develop those lottery picks into players capable of reaching the playoffs.
  • Trade a pile of future picks for another present-day star to help those young lottery picks make a championship push.

We saw two textbook examples earlier in the offseason. Minnesota, fresh off of its first playoff berth since 2018, traded four first-round picks, one swap and several players to Utah for Rudy Gobert. Atlanta, after two consecutive playoff trips that followed three years in the lottery, gave up three picks and a swap for Dejounte Murray.

It’s a sensible progression for a few reasons. From a salary perspective, it allows teams to add expensive players while their youngsters are still making below market value. It also staves off the wanderlust that the best players are experiencing at younger and younger ages. Your best player doesn’t need to fantasize about teaming up with another big name elsewhere when he can do it in his own backyard. And then there’s the obvious: adding a great player helps a good team win basketball games.

That’s why the price is so steep, and in many cases, prohibitive. The Knicks chose not to trade for Donovan Mitchell for that very reason. It’s not just the value of the lost picks, but what they represent. Unless you have an endless war chest like Oklahoma City, you can only trade all of your picks once. Get the deal wrong and you’re stuck with the wrong roster indefinitely. An unfixable roster is the easiest way to lose a star. Imagine if Brooklyn had needed to trade Kevin Durant this offseason despite Houston controlling its next five first-round picks and you’ll understand the severity of the risk such a star trade represents for most teams.

That’s what makes Cleveland’s acquisition of Mitchell such an overwhelming victory for the franchise. They managed to land a 25-year-old All-Star without taking such a risk. For a multitude of reasons, they might have just made one of the safer superstar trades in recent memory.

Mitchell’s contract is a central reason for that. With three guaranteed years left on his deal and a relatively clean bill of health, the Cavaliers can not only be relatively certain that Mitchell will play at an All-Star level for them but, if necessary, hold the appeal of an All-Star in future trade negotiations if things go south. While All-Stars on expiring contracts typically don’t fetch the same packages as those on long-term deals, they typically still manage to bring back meaningful hauls even when the acquiring team is uncertain of their future.

The Raptors got a bargain on Kawhi Leonard because of his expiring deal, but DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a first-round pick are hardly chump change. Paul George netted Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis from a Thunder team willing to roll the dice on George before free agency, and while neither had the cache they would one day earn, Sabonis was a year removed from being picked No. 11 overall and Oladipo had just signed an $80 million contract. Both had value. 

So imagine a worst-case scenario where this does go south for Cleveland and the New York native winds up wanting to return home in 2024. The Cavaliers probably couldn’t recoup the picks it invested in Mitchell, but it could demand an older RJ Barrett back in a deal with the Knicks, or if he’s developed beyond inclusion in such talks, try to get the sort of rental package back that Toronto and Oklahoma City once paid for their own former stars. Barrett, a big wing that can shoot, dribble and defend, would slot perfectly into Cleveland’s current core. So would any number of other players they could likely fetch in a second Mitchell trade if one becomes necessary. 

The bar would be significantly lower for Cleveland at that point than it would be for most teams trying to move a star because the Cavaliers already have three of them. They wouldn’t need a Mitchell package to kickstart a rebuild. With Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen still under team control, they’d be looking for veterans that fit alongside them. Such players are almost always available when stars are on the table. Utah took back multiple starting-caliber veterans as mere salary fillers in the Gobert deal. 

Those incumbent stars also limit the upside of the picks Cleveland is giving away. The last pick in the deal will convey in 2029, which would follow Mobley’s eighth NBA season. Even if he is forced to sign a four-year rookie extension due to Mitchell and Garland occupying the team’s two designated rookie salary slots, he would still be under contract through the 2028-29 season. Garland is signed through the 2027-28 campaign. Allen is under contract through 2026. All three are 24 or younger. Barring injuries, that trio should be quite good for Cleveland for the foreseeable future.

Boston sportswriter Bob Ryan rips Kevin Durant in profane rant

Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant

Almost immediately after 12-time All-Star Kevin Durant requested a trade away from the Brooklyn Nets in late June, some linked him with the Boston Celtics in mock transactions that landed Brooklyn All-Star forward Jaylen Brown, among other assets, in return.

No such transaction occurred, and Durant and the Nets are now on track to “move forward with our partnership” presumably until the two-time NBA champion and two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player again becomes unsettled.

During a recent interview, Hall of Famer Charles Barkley offered some heavy criticism of Durant and said that he calls the 33-year-old “Mr. Miserable” because “he’s never going to be happy.” Per Jenna Lemoncelli of the New York Post, Boston Globe legend Bob Ryan went even further when ranting about Durant not joining the Celtics during an edition of the “Bob Ryan & Jeff Goodman NBA Podcast.”

“Screw him,” Ryan said of Durant. “I don’t need him. I’m happy. I don’t want to win with him.

“I want to root for this group right here that we have seen assembled and grow. Now that we’ve added [Malcolm] Brogdon.. I love this team. I don’t want to win with that s— head and I think he is one, frankly… I don’t want to win with this guy. Screw him. No.”

Ryan, 76, was probably glad to see that only one Western Conference executive of 15 NBA coaches, scouts and executives recently asked for an ESPN offseason survey predicted that Durant will be with the Celtics one day after the winter trade deadline.

This NBA Player Averaged The Most Assists Per Game Last Season

Phoenix Suns Chris Paul

The 2022-23 NBA regular season is less than 50 days away from August 30.

Last season, the Phoenix Suns lost in the second-round of the NBA Playoffs, but they also had the best regular season record in the entire league.

They went 64-18, which is the best record that the franchise has ever had during the regular season.

The season prior, they made the 2021 NBA Finals, and snapped a ten-year drought from the NBA Playoffs.

One of the biggest reasons for the major improvement over the last two seasons has been the addition of future Hall of Famer Chris Paul.

The Suns traded for Paul right before the 2021 season (in the summer of 2020), and since then they have been one of the premier teams in the entire league.

Last season, Paul averaged 14.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 10.8 assists per contest in 65 regular season games.

Not only did he help the Suns be the best team in the NBA, but he also led the NBA in assists per game

In May, he turned 37-years-old, so he did this at the age of 36, which is quite remarkable.

While Paul has never won an NBA Championship, but he is still one of the 50 greatest players ever with ease.

He’s made the NBA All-Star Game 12 times, and been named to the All-NBA First Team four different times.

His career average of 9.5 assists per game ranks fourth all-time in the history of the NBA.

The Suns will more than likely be a contender once again next season.

Warriors’ Steph Curry believes offseason ‘details’ lead to NBA Finals success

Steph Curry

With four NBA championships under his belt, Steph Curry knows a thing or two about winning a Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.

After celebrating winning the 2022 NBA Finals, the Warriors guard is in the gym, this time at Rico Hines’ Private Runs, preparing for the upcoming 2022-23 NBA season.

While Curry is teaming up with Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young to torment opponents with their shooting, the 34-year-old also advised those attending the practice on what it takes to get to June and win an NBA title.

The Warriors star stated to everyone in attendance that the work they put in the offseason matters if they want to be the team left standing at the end of the season.

“Good to see competition like everybody’s in here, for one goal to be ready for June whenever your time is,” Curry said at Rico Hines’ Private Runs. “So if it hadn’t happened yet, these are the moments that matter.

“… But all that stuff matters in terms of the details with every part of the game on both ends of the floor. Because in June, you need this. You need your body. You need your competitive fire. And it’s all built right now.”

FIBA Roundup: Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo star in Sunday action

Sunday’s games featured notable NBA talent including: Luka Doncic (Slovenia), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greece), Nikola Jokic (Serbia) and Kristaps Porziņgis (Latvia).

Here are the standout performances from Sunday:

Greece 85 , Belgium 68

Antetokounmpo (26 points, 7 rebounds) and Mavs guard Tyler Dorsey (22 points) catapulted Greece to a convincing home win on Sunday. The Greeks stifled Belgium in a packed arena full of faithful Athens fans, holding the Lions to 35% shooting while forcing 23 turnovers (29 points).


Serbia 79 , Turkey 72

Turkey received steady production on Sunday from its three-headed trio of Cavs forward Cedi Osman (22 points), 76ers guard Furkan Korkmaz (18 points) and Rockets youngster Alperen Sengun (17 points, 13 rebounds). But reigning back-to-back Kia MVP Jokic racked up a strong double-double (24 points, 10 rebounds), enough to help Serbia hold on in its Window 4 finale.


Latvia 87, Great Britain 80

Wizards forward Kristaps Porziņgis turned in a stellar performance against Great Britain. The former All-Star tallied 29 points and 14 rebounds to help Latvia pull out the road win. Though Mavs forward Davis Bertans struggled (2 points, 1-6 FGs), his brother Dairis converted a 3-pointer with just over four minutes left to claim a 76-73 lead that Latvia would not relinquish.


Germany 90, Slovenia 71

Germany handed Slovenia its biggest loss so far on the backs of Rockets guard Dennis Schroder (17 points, 10 assists, 2 steals) and Magic forward Franz Wagner (16 points, 7 rebounds). Doncic contributed a game-high 23 points and was one of only two Slovenian players to score in double figures.


Finland 76 , Estonia 68

Cavs big man Lauri Markkanen just missed out on a double-double in Finland’s win, dropping an efficient 18 points to go along with nine boards. Finland took three of four quarters to officially punch its ticket to next year’s FIBA World Cup.


Angola 70, Nigeria 67

Nigeria narrowly fell to Angola despite an exceptional effort from Kings forward Chimezie Metu (17 points, 10 rebounds). The D’Tigers were plagued by turnovers, committing 22 of them on the day. Suns guard Josh Okogie chipped in 15 points, seven rebounds and three assists for Nigeria in the loss.


Tunisia 57 , Congo DR 45

Warriors forward Jonathan Kuminga had an impressive showing on Sunday, scoring an efficient 19 points (5-9 FGs) with 8 boards in Congo’s loss to Tunisia. The Eagles were boosted by a 14-point 1st-quarter advantage.
