Good morning friends! Hope your holiday weekend is going as planned.
Let’s get right into what is happening today!
NBA Free Agency
The big news coming from yesterday is the signing of two former Cats to join Anthony Davis in LA.
Yes, Boogie and Davis are back on the same team! Plus, Rajon Rondo has signed a two-year deal to stay with the Lakers. I guess you can call the team the “L.A. Wildcats” – Has a good ring to it, you think?
That was not the only news coming out of NBA Free Agency as point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was involved in a blockbuster trade made between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder traded All-Star forward, Paul George to the Clippers for Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and includes five future unprotected first-round picks for the years of 2022, 2024 and 2026 from LA, 2021 first round pick from Miami and a 2023 protected first round pick also from Miami.
