    It's an opportunity for Tyus Jones who is playing very well. He gets fewer assists than Teague but he also has many fewer TO's - so they not miss Teague that much. Aaron Brooks will be moving up behind Jones and while he's gotten little PT so far, his numbers are good.

    The Miami Heat plan to sign former Suns forward Derrick Jones Jr. on a two-way NBA contract, league sources say.

    Atlanta, Memphis, then Lakers, Orlando & Dallas in a 3-way tie for third-worst record in NBA. Celtics have Lakers pick if it's 2-5, could be game-changer for Boston. This year's draft loaded at top. Celtics get Sacramento's pick in 2019 if Lakers aren't 2-5. 2019 draft: Weaker.

    Wow, after they had the Nets' unprotected pick last summer? That's some amazing foresight. Meanwhile, the Suns have Brandon Knight.

    The Jazz traded Trey Lyles to the Nuggets for Donovan Mitchell. They both won big time. It's rare to see two winners in a trade, at least immediately.

    I wasn't impressed with Lyles last night.

    Only 2 games but boy does Steph Curry look amazing since he came back. 38 in 25 minutes 10-13 on 3's in the first game, and then 32 last night including the game winner against Dallas on a night where the Warriors were both flat and getting totally hosed by the refs. It's remarkable how well they did without him because they are so much better offensively with him it's scary.

    Lyles had 16 points and 11 rebounds last night. I thought there was a lot to like.

    However, my interest in Lyles dates back to the 2015 NBA draft where I was hoping Myles Turner or Trey Lyles would fall to the Suns at #13. At that time I had no idea Devin Booker would be that good. The 2015 draft is looking to be a very good draft.

    I thought perhaps I was the only fan of Lyles but Eddie Johnson said last night during the game, he thought Lyles would be a future star.

    Lyles only turned 22 this last November.

    Wow, it was a quiet 16/11. I had no idea. I watched the Denver broadcast and they actually had some issues with his play.

    If the announcers get unhappy with him, maybe they can send him our way. ;)
