Reports: Magic near buyout with Terrence Ross, Mavericks frontrunners to sign Why Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says he gets jealous of Giannis Antetokounmpo Browns owner Haslam in talks to buy share of NBA’s Bucks Jimmy Butler’s alley-oop finish in last second gives Heat 97-95 win over Rockets Report: Gary Payton II fails physical putting four-team trade in jeopardy

After Orlando and Ross have been in the trade bloc for over a year – and told Magic to no avail that he would like them to find him a new home – Orlando and Ross are working on a buyout. After becoming a free agent, he is likely to join Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving with Mavericks.

None of this is a big surprise, and Adrian Wojnarowski told the story.

Ross has a reported $11.5 million this season and will most likely give the Magic a discount to move on (money he will get from his new team).

Ross is an experienced winger with a good shooting game, he is shooting 38.1% of 3 this season and can play a little in spots. He is the kind of reliable role player that coaches trust to make the right decisions. This skill set is perfect for Dallas with Doncic and Irving, though other teams will at least be calling.

The ransom market will be busy this year, and there will be many more guards than usual.

ANGELS – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had a career that he should be in the spotlight on: a six-time champion, six MVPs, a 15-time NBA champion, a two-time scoring champion, an 11-time defensive team player, and an iconic shot that is only on this week – helped him score the most points in the history of the game.

However, Aboudl-Jabbar said as he looked Giannis Antetokounmpo play, he gets a little jealous.

“I would like to do some of the things he [does]”, Abdul-Jabbar said, speaking a couple of days after his scoring record fell. “You get the rebound, you better not try to get it across the court if you are a front row player” – that was like gospel when I played. Giannis goes through it all and opens the game. So I’m glad he did it, but it annoys me that I didn’t have time to have fun.”

Antetokounmpo said he was lucky that his coaches always encouraged him to get the ball on the court (which makes sense, it doesn’t take a well-trained basketball eye to see that he’s an unstoppable force in transition). He then admired the idea of ​​Abdul-Jabbar in the role.

“Obviously Kareem could throw the ball on the floor and create for himself and get people out of the way or ask for a pick and roll – he would probably have 52,000 points. It will take LeBron another eight years to break that record,” Antetokounmpo said.

“I can’t imagine Karim bringing up this topic. I’m sure he probably could, he did the rest,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said when asked about this evolution in the sport. “I don’t know when the evolution started, but definitely Giannis is just incredibly unique to this league right now.”

Abdul Jabbar was there when LeBron James broke his scoring record, part of an outpouring of appreciation for James that KAJ didn’t get when he edged out Wilt Chamberlain (in a game on neutral ground in Las Vegas, Abdul-Jabbar noted, half the crowd were Kings fans).

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam are in talks to buy a minority stake in the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, a person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press.

The Haslams, who have explored buying other professional teams in the past, are looking for a 25% stake currently owned by Marc Lasry, according to a person who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sticky situation.

According to the source, there is no deadline for an agreement or sale. Sportico was the first to report Haslam Sports Group’s interest in the Bucks.

Lazri and Wesley Edens, New York investment company executives, bought the Bucks from former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl for about $550 million in 2014, promising to keep the team in Milwaukee.

The Haslams bought the Browns in 2012, also own the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer and were interested in expanding their professional sports portfolio outside of Ohio.

The Haslams had previously approached the Minnesota Timberwolves to purchase them.

MIAMI – The game was put together by assistant coach Chris Quinn during a scrimmage at the Miami Heat on the NBA’s 2020 restart bubble. Jimmy Butler soak.

When this happened, Butler hung on the ring, pointed out Heat coach Eric Spoelstra, and demanded to be used in the game.

Nearly three years later, the game—”CQ” on Spoelstra’s game sheet, the initials of its inventor—finally caught on. And it worked.

Gabe Vincent with 0.3 seconds left, gave Butler an alley pass for a dunk to give the Heat a 97–95 victory over the Houston Rockets on Friday night and their eighth straight home win.

“It took us about three years to get back to it,” Spoelstra said. “That’s one of the benefits of the time we spent in the bubble.”

Tyler Herro the Heat had 31 points, nine rebounds and eight assists to win despite only scoring 39 points in the second half. Bam Adebayo scored 20 points, Butler had 10 of his 16 points in the fourth and Max Strus added 14 for Miami.

“Any way to win, at this point in the season, it’s all about winning,” Herro said. “We’ll take him in any way we can.”

Jabari Smith Junior scored 22 points for the Rockets. Kenyon Martin Jr. had 17 and Alperen Sengun had 12. Jalen Green scored 11 points, including a decisive loss with 0.7 seconds left.

But Miami announced the time, Vincent crossed, and Butler was on his back – after the winning game. The Heat won the season’s series with the Rockets, winning two games by five points.

“There was a lot of confusion about whether we changed or not,” Rockets coach Steven Silas said of the final game. “I said to the crowd, ‘Stay home, stay home, stay home.’ And we did not stay at home, and after that an avalanche began. … We must learn these lessons.”

It was Houston’s first game since he was involved in deadline deals – sending Eric Gordon to the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-team move that left the Rockets Danny Greenand collecting Justin Holiday And Frank Kaminsky in another.

“I believe we will have the most cap space of any NBA team this summer. … We will have a lot of free space for signing…
