Hmmm what do you guys think about having a former agent as a GM? Seems kind of odd to me

IMO it will add "versatility" to our FO because he can bring specific knowledge. Pelinka example is not good, since LAL has been awful bad in terms of management, but I get the idea.

Branch will help Roc Nation build out its basketball representation practice. Before working for Landmark Sports, Branch worked at Nike and the NBA.

Yormark said Branch had not brought any clients with him. Branch had co-represented with Pelinka Miami Heat rookie point guard Shabazz Napier, who was picked No. 24 overall in this year’s draft.

I think it helps with future contract negotiations because rosas is kind of green in that department. And with all the short deals given out, he could be worth his weight in gold next off season.

Invite Butler back to test the new crew.

Between that trip and everyone already in town, we'll basically already have a full training camp in by the time training camp actually starts on Tuesday.

Our 3 leaders, going by the team toast: Kat, Roco, and wiggs.

Kat is really looking to assert himself as the leader and trying to rally the troops around this new culture.
Roco is that big brother that looks to pick everyone up, someone the players will listen to.
Wiggs seems like that chill guy that everyone loves because he's easy to talk to.

3 different personalities, but each give you a little something different. that is necessary in building something.

Ran into the new video on front page of youtube earlier. It's going to be a different kind of season. Kat right off the bat talking about transparency for fans of team was interesting.

Nowell could be another face for this franchise. Hope he gets some run early this season. Seeing him show up in these videos alot. But no love on the speaking parts yet. This was mostly about the team leaders I guess. Was that Reid talking a bunch?

Reid was the third guy in the game of PIG with Culver and Nowell.
