NBA trade rumors: Nuggets reportedly in talks with Cavs, Pacers in possible Paul George trade

The 2017 NBA Draft is over and Paul George is still a member of the Pacers for now.

There has been some speculation that it could take a third team for George to be traded to the Cavaliers, one of the teams that expressed interest in the Pacers All-Star. The Nuggets could be the missing link to make such a trade possible, according to ESPN.

The Cavaliers, Pacers and Nuggets have reportedly discussed a trade that would send George to Cleveland and Kevin Love to Denver. One version of the three-way deal includes Kenneth Faried being traded to the Cavaliers, as reported by ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

George has one year left on his contract with the Pacers, followed by a player option. But he has informed Indiana that he will opt out of his contract next summer and enter free agency.

Me going undrafted, Jones said, that was honestly the best thing for my basketball career. Everybody wants to be drafted on draft night. That’s everybody’s goal, but it really don’t matter when it comes down to it.

The number that’s beside your name when you get drafted, that don’t mean nothing. That number’s not going to help you on the court. You could get drafted No. 1 and get killed by the 60th overall draft pick, I mean, it doesn’t matter. That number is nothing. It matters on the work ethic that you have and how much work you put in the gym and how much you give on the floor.

NBA trade rumors: LeBron James, Kyrie Irving wooing Jimmy Butler to force deal to Cavs

LeBron James and the Cavs lost the arms race.

After upsetting the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, the Cavs watched Golden State acquire four-time scoring champion and former MVP Kevin Durant last offseason. Last week, the Warriors took care of Cleveland in five to capture their second title in three seasons. Adding Durant to a roster that included Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green made the Warriors simply too much for the King and all his men to seriously challenge.

So, now, they’re calling for reinforcements. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cleveland players, including James and Irving, have been reaching out to Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, and the three-time All-Star is willing to push Chicago’s management to make the deal happen.

Pregame.com also notes the wise guys in Vegas are heavy on the Warriors, while the betting public is heavy on the Cavs — natural given the payout gap combined with a perception of relative equality between the two teams.

Those who are gutsy enough to bet on a Cleveland sweep will earn a massive payout if the Cavs pull it off. A Cleveland sweep pays 50/1, while a Golden State sweep pays 8/1.

The 2016 NBA Finals went the full seven games. This year’s edition of Cavs vs. Warriors, their third consecutive finals meeting, is not expected to last as long. Pregame.com gives the series a 30 percent chance to go seven games. The 2016 NBA Finals, for what it’s worth, lasted six games.

Ingles has found a new home in Utah and the skies are clear

Today, they play the small forward by committee, with Luc Mbah a Moute starting and Paul Pierce, Wesley Johnson, and Jamal Crawford sharing responsibility at the three.

Adding Ingles, a willing passer, deft decision-maker and dead-eye shooter, could have been the answer to the most pressing roster question of Rivers’ tenure. He had that answer, but chose to waive him and keep Cunningham.

“He’s just one of those guys. He’s a sunshine guy,” Rivers said of Ingles.

That sunshine may have helped lift the dark cloud wafting above a Clippers’ franchise yet to get past the second round of the playoffs in its soon-to-be 40-year history.

Luckily, Ingles has found a new home in Utah and the skies are clear. The Jazz have a promising young group mixed with proven veterans and two stars in Gordon Hayward and Rudy Gobert. And thanks to Clippers’ blunder years ago, it looks like the Australian forward will carve out a lengthy career with the Jazz.

That has to sting for Rivers.

Without Rajon Rondo’s injury, you have to wonder if the Celtics would have recovered as convincingly as they did. Their last two wins, though by a combined 20 points, were closer than the score might indicate, and Rondo was enormous for Chicago when Boston dropped the first two matchups of this series. Again, those moments Nike Cheap Jerseys are still cause for concern — you can’t lose twice at home to a team that was as dysfunctional as the Bulls for most the year and shrug it off. They can’t prove anything in this series, and winning Game 6 won’t erase the way this series began. That can only come later on.

Garrett’s pick is interesting because Jones was retired for decades before Garrett was born.

This could be a running back or pass rusher, but the more pressing need for Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Green Bay is a cornerback. White is a player who can step right into a starting lineup thanks to his experience.

There’s been a lot of speculation that Watt will end up being a first-round pick, and this is the last logical landing spot. He would give Pittsburgh a linebacker who can rush the quarterback and stay home and stop the run.

His choice of favorite player says a lot about him. Deacon Jones, the Pro Football Hall of Famer was credited with coining the term “sacks,” which Garrett had 31 of during his Aggie career.

Garrett’s pick is interesting because Jones was retired for decades before Garrett was born. Most young DEs probably look up to current players like DeMarcus Ware, Von Miller, or J.J. Watt.

Jones was also known for his vocal opinions and for his off-field pursuits, such as an acting career. Like Garrett, he was more than just an athlete. It’s a great year for NFL teams in the market for budding pass rushers and defensive backs. Players like Myles Garrett, Derek Barnett, Jamal Adams, and Wholesale Jerseys From China Jonathan Allen are all waiting to start their pro careers as potential top 10 picks of the 2017 NFL draft.

Clubs in need of a franchise passer aren’t as lucky.

This year’s draft will infuse the league with defensive talent this spring, but teams like the Browns, Bears, and Jets will be left wanting when it comes to elite quarterbacks. Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson may develop into the foundation for a Super Bowl offense, but each has his share of weaknesses that will have to be sorted out first.

Will Holden wasn’t supposed to be Vanderbilt’s starting left tackle

Will Holden wasn’t supposed to be Vanderbilt’s starting left tackle. Instead, that job was reserved for Andrew Jelks — a more-hyped recruit in the Commodores class of 2012. When Jelks went down with a pair of season-ending injuries the past two years, however, Holden was ready to step up. He turned that opportunity into All-SEC honors and, on Day 3 of the 2017 NFL Draft, a spot in the Arizona Cardinals’ draft class.

“He had a calling, and right now he feels like it’s his time to show what he can do. He explained to me, ‘I can do things now that I couldn’t do when I was initially with the 49ers.’ That’s the kind of shape he’s in.”

Oubre says Coffee has been training for four months for his comeback and will be in contact with all 32 teams to see if any are interested in bringing him in for a workout.

When Coffee retired in 2010, he didn’t cite the military as the reason for his departure. He said that he was choosing faith over football.

“I feel like it’s His will,” Coffee told the Mobile Press-Register in 2010, shortly after he announced his retirement. “It’s something that I really felt like I shouldn’t have entered Cheap Jerseys In China the NFL in the first place. I don’t know what call God has for my life, but it wasn’t football.

“I’ll be happier, not necessarily because I’m without football, but because I’m letting Him do His work. Whether it was leaving football or leaving something else, another job, it Cheap Jerseys NFL doesn’t matter. I’ll be happy because I’m following His will.”

But now — less than a month before his 30th birthday — Coffee is ready to return.
