Daily Five: Could Terrance Williams Benefit From Time in the D-League?
Each day, we'll take a quick look at five of the most important stories going on in the NBA.
Ted Kulfan: "Prince, though, got into a heated shouting match with Kuester with 7:16 left in the game when Kuester cleared the floor and emptied the bench. Prince, though, wouldn't comment on the matter. "Don't ask me that question, because if I speak on it you all are going to change my words up. I'm not going to answer that," Prince said."
Nets Are Scorching: "Right now, the Nets have 1 roster spot open as they have 14 players under contract. My guess on why they haven’t done anything with that spot yet is because they are probably trying to find a big man in the D-League. The D-League is lacking in true quality big men (we will look at this more on Monday), and with Terrence Williams still on the NBA roster, the Nets will be limited to looking at this small pool of players. This is because with Williams on the active roster, there are way too many wings, and it would be silly to call one of them up (even though wing-men are the strength of the D-League in my opinion)."
Truth About It: "Mike James can’t wait until the NBA trade deadline. It’s his best shot to get out of a place he does not want to be, the Nation’s Capital of Washington, DC. Although, if his $6.5 million expiring contract isn’t traded by February 19th, the Wizards will likely buy him out, releasing him to the sea of basketball free-agents, where there are plenty of fish."
Kelly Dwyer: "The Cavs really wanted this, and while I'm not going to tell you that the Lakers did not, this was obviously something that was more important to Cleveland. Hurt by the way the Lakers dominated Cleveland last season, and the recent news that Mo Williams might be out until it's time to fill out our NCAA brackets, the Cavs needed a pick-me-up."
It's Just Sports: "The top-selling jerseys are cliches and we try to be better than that so I constructed a projection of the bottom-five least selling jerseys in the association this year."
