Utah sending Cavs a 2022 San Antonio second & 2023 Golden State second, per sources

LeBron with 12 3-point attempts & just 4 free throws. Clippers did a good job swarming paint but health may’ve played a factor because he didn’t have burst needed for such a major challenge.

He and Zeke Elliott not even getting invited to New York is a shame.

Jackie MacMullan knew David Stern for 35 years. She tells some stories on a podcast recorded tonight:

New podcast. On the complexity of Kevin Love & Andre Drummond trades + who is having a better season CP3 or Westbrook? (h/t @JonesOnTheNBA ). With @kevinarnovitz  & @royceyoung

LeBron James just went into Cavs locker room where Gordon Hayward is receiving medical attention

The Supreme Court has just ruled 7-2 to overturn the federal ban on sports gambling. It's a historic day in American sport.

Isaiah Thomas, who recruited Hayward to Boston over summer, has also been with him in locker room.

Dion Waiters had a panic attack on Heat team flight after taking an edible sources tell @wojespn  and me:

I'm in Rome, it's 1:30 a.m. and my wife may be considering divorce. I leave analysis of Cavs-Celtics trade to my able colleagues. Good night

NBA is changing format of All-Star Game. Captains will select teams regardless of the conference, playground style
