    I'm not harshing on Delon for his first-half play because he was playing against a starter unit. In the second half, though, he was playing against their bench and although his defense was good his...

    thoughts:

    - The passing game was encouraging, even if it meant more bad passes than we're used to. You have to have some bad passes to get used to making good passes.

    The Raptors can only offer Norm about $10.5m max per year if they extend him and he can almost certainly (barring major injury) do better in free agency next summer. Unless he's really worried about...

    I agree that Cleveland won the trade (seriously, if you were going to burn the Nets pick on a player, it should have been Paul George), but:

    Um, guys? Gordon Hayward is a better wing defender than Jae Crowder is, and he's also larger than Crowder is. That was one of the major reasons the Celtics signed him; in addition to being a...

    Honestly, I'll be surprised if Barrett doesn't re-classify as a senior this fall so he can go to college in 2018 - and thus qualify for the 2019 draft. But even if he doesn't, he'll be a one-and-done...
