Raptors, Wizards, Wolves, Bucks Interested In Trading For DeAndre Jordan

Dec 1, 2017 6:05 PM

The Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards, Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly shown the most interest in trading for DeAndre Jordan.

The Clippers have interest in John Henson, Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton in their trade talks with the Bucks. The Clippers want at least two of those three Bucks in any trade for Jordan.

Jordan will be a free agent in the offseason and is currently operating without an agent. The Clippers are widely expected to fall out of playoff contention following the injury to Blake Griffin.

Nov 3, 2017 6:30 PM

John Wall believes the Washington Wizards pose the most difficult threat to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference.

"It's playoff style," Beal said of Friday night's game. "That's one of the best teams to be assembled. You've got LeBron, been in the Finals the last seven times. You know, so there's always hype behind it. And you always bring your A game when you're playing against the best. So that's kind of how we go back and forth. We know we can challenge them, and they know they challenge us. It's always a good matchup. We love it. We embrace it."

Wall said the Wizards have the Cavs' respect and that they gave them "the best matchup."

Oct 28, 2017 12:01 AM

Draymond Green and Bradley Beal were both ejected from Friday night's game shortly before halftime.

Beal slapped Green in the face from behind, which led Green to grab Beal. The two remained locked as the scuffle spilled into the baseline.

Green had received a technical foul earlier in the game.


Green spoke with ESPN about the incident while the game was still in progress.

"I don't know what I'm supposed to do if someone hits you twice. Man, you're taught as a kid not to allow that. What was I supposed to do?

Green was asked if there's history with Bea.

"There's history with me and the NBA. That's the only reason I can think of why I was ejected."
