    Kyrie Irving is likely to make his return to the Nets lineup on Sunday against Atlanta, league sources tell ESPN.

    From the Kings: Kings forward Richaun Holmes underwent imaging that revealed an injury to the right shoulder joint. He will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks. Updates will be provided as appropriate.

    I think Diallo is okay but I don't get why we let Richaun go. One of the few bright spots last year and you don't signal to fans and players to lock that up? Give him bench money. You need 3 decent bigs, so with him and Ayton you'd only need one more. Don't know who to pin that one on. Squeaky cheap Sarver or the previous GM?

    I know exactly why. James Jones prefers soft, unathletic, finesse front court players in the mold of himself, so he chose Frank Kaminsky over Holmes for the same money.

    You're letting your hatred for Jones interfere with logic lol

    Outside of picking scraps in Diallo, name one player Jones has pursued and preferred who is not in Jones's own image.

    And I actually like Jones as a person and as a player relations guy, but as a GM I think he is absolutely killing this franchise.

    Yet another move that was obviously a mistake at the time, yet vigorously defended by most of this board.

    It wasn't Diallo instead of Richaun. The money slot that could have been used on Richaun was used on Frank Kaminsky instead. An even bigger mistake, in my opinion.

    Diallo was a 1 year $1,678,854 contract.

    Holmes was a 2 year, $9,772,350 contract.

    Kaminsky was a 2 year, $10 million contract.

    i'm guessing things were tight that they weren't sure they'd resign Oubre and a pg.
