Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Interesting given we were thought to have a great chance with him. I wonder if JB even offered. Also wonder if this says anything about Battle recruitment.
Missing a 4-star SG is a bummer, but we're probably going to get as good or better of a player with that scholly.
Per Yahoo (yeah I know) they are seeing if he is intersted and also seeing if they can fire coach George Karl with cause due to the broken relationship with DeMarcus Cousins.
Calipari has been communicating with owner Vivek Ranadive and other members of the Kings' ownership group in recent weeks, league sources said. Calipari has listened to scenarios with which the Kings could offer him complete control of the franchise's fledgling basketball operations to go along with coaching, league sources said.
No formal offer has been made to Calipari, and Kings ownership understands that it will take a multiyear financial package of $10 million-plus annually to get Calipari to seriously consider leaving Kentucky, sources said
If you see a 6-foot-10 guy roaming State Street looking for a good place to get some wienerschnitzel, you'll understand. The Big Deutschmark arrived in town today:
"Retire" or return to sleep until he's hungry again.
Seems he is being sent to the Atlanta Hawks.
The Knicks are trading Tim Hardaway to the Hawks, who will draft Jerian Grant for the Knicks, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 26, 2015

The Jazz are actively trying to trade Burke right now, potentially today before the draft. It sucks to hear that a Michigan great and fan favorite is being actively shopped like this, but it comes as very little surprise honestly.
Burke was very inefficient his rookie year and honestly got worse this year. His shooting percentages, rebounding and assit numbers all went down and he's a liability on defense. With the Jazz drafting Exum in the first last year, this was bound to happen.
Hopefully he lands somewhere that he can get some playing time and turn himself around.
