Long story short: So a couple days ago Clippers free agent center DeAndre Jordan said he was going to sign a contract with the Mavericks.
Then today the Clippers decided they really wanted him back. So Doc Rivers and a few of the Clippers players came over to DeAndre's house...and are staying with him until midnight tonight when the free agency deadline ends (or something, don't know).
Which is basically a hostage situation to prevent Mark Cuban/the Mavs from stopping by. Or a friendly slumber party with your old (and future?) teammates. Weird. The NBA is really weird.
Also this tweet is pretty funny:

Per Moritz Wagner's twitter bio, he will be wearing #13 at Michigan.
The last full-time player to wear #13 was Matt Vogrich.
Preferred walk on Brent Hibbitts will wear #0, being the first player since Zack Novak to wear #0 and only the third ever.
Hibbitts in #0 during workouts-
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:
