Kenny Stabler Authentic Jersey Congratulations to Georgetown for giving Patrick Ewing what the NBA never did.
Authentic Kids Demetrius Harris Jersey No, not a championship. A chance to be a head coach.
That’s the one dark cloud in the sunny skies over the return of Georgetown’s greatest player to take over his alma mater in its time of need. This should not be Ewing’s first head-coaching job.
The Wizards struck the first deal of the day, landing the Nets’ Bojan Bogdanovic to add needed bench depth. It cost them Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a lottery protected first-round pick. The Wizards also added Chris McCollough, who isn’t likely to see any court time. Bogdonovic becomes a restricted free agent at the end of this season, while Nicholson is playing under the first year of a four-year, $26 million deal. Thornton is expected to be waived, per the Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Sixers traded Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks for Tiago Splitter, a 2017 second-round pick via Miami, and a 2017 second-round pick swap with Atlanta. Ilyasova wasn’t a part in the Sixers’ rebuild process, and instead they’ll gain another draft pick, and move up in the second round using their own. The two players’ contracts are set to expire at the end of the season, and are essentially a wash.
The Bulls want Crowder in any deal for Butler, but Boston is hesitant to part ways with a quality forward on an extremely cap-friendly contract, per NBA.com’s David Aldridge. Chicago is under no pressure to ship Butler, and is unlikely to send him if isn’t the right deal.
