Adelaide 36ers Seeking Compensation From Brooklyn For Mitch Creek

Aug 9, 2018 3:11 AM

The Adelaide 36ers of the Australian NBL have gone to court in Australia to stop Mitch Creek from signing with the Brooklyn Nets without compensation.

Creek had one year of a three-year deal left to run with the 36ers in the 2018-19 season but triggered his European/NBA out clause to join a top-level German club, Wurzberg. Wurzberg gave Creek its clearance but Adelaide claims it must get its approval as well.

"We are ensuring in the event that he gets a spot on the final roster that there is some sort of compensation (for Adelaide)," 36ers chief executive Ben Kavenagh told The Advertiser.

Former teammate Josh Childress has taken to social media pleading for the 36ers to come to their senses and allow Creek to follow his dream.

The Nets are looking at offering Creek a camp invite.

Nets, Knicks Expected To Pursue Kyrie Irving

Aug 1, 2018 11:51 AM

The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks are widely expected to pursue Kyrie Irving in free agency next season.

Irving will be a free agent in 2019 as an extension with the Boston Celtics would represent far less than what he can make on the open market.

There have been no firm indications from Irving or his camp that he is seriously considering leaving the Celtics as some have speculated.

Ed Davis Also Received Interest From Blazers, Warriors, 76ers, Thunder

Jul 26, 2018 9:50 AM

Ed Davis received interest from the Golden State Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Portland Trail Blazers before agreeing to a one-year, $4.4 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

“The main thing is they definitely came out aggressive when July 1 hit, so I definitely wanted to go to where I was wanted, so that had a lot to do with it,” Davis said on a conference call. “Then, I talked to Allen (Crabbe) and Jeremy (Lin) a little bit about the coaching staff and things like that and how the organization was run, and it was nothing but great things. Then, I think this team has potential definitely. We can try to make this push into the playoffs this year, and it’s going to be a challenge, but that’s one of the reasons why I’m here.”

Kawhi Leonard Reportedly Talking To Other Stars About 2019 Free Agency Plans

Jul 18, 2018 5:50 PM

While Kawhi Leonard has been silent with the media, Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star said on the Back To Back Podcast on Wednesday that he has been in conversations with other impending 2019 free agents about possibly playing together.

"One thing I was told last night is that Kawhi Leonard had already been planning out his free agency for next year and he had already been in contact with other star players in the league and saying 'Hey, where might you want to play with me? What are we looking at?'

"It wasn't just L.A. he was talking about," added Arthur. "Brooklyn was maybe somewhere. They're going to have a ton of cap space. That might have been a possibility.

"So Kawhi has already been thinking ahead to pairing up and playing at a highest level."

The 2019 free agent class includes Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.
