Brooklyn Nets player Spencer Dinwiddie said this week that his tokenized investment vehicle will launch on Jan. 13 in spite of the NBA’s threat to ban him from the professional basketball league. 
“The Spencer Dinwiddie bond launches January 13th. I’ll also be taking 8 fans to ASW with me. #NBAVote,” he tweeted on Jan. 10.

The bond will be issued with the help of security token platform Securitize, whose CEO Carlos Domingo announced the partnership on Twitter.

Zion Williamson is reportedly planning to make his regular-season debut on Thursday against the Jazz.

A lot of this will depend on how practice goes over the next few days, but he's been trending in a positive direction for a while now, and it sounds like we'll finally see him take the floor this week. He'll play very limited minutes, though, and it's not yet official that he'll be out there on Thursday, so owners in weekly settings should just continue to leave him on their bench.

Kyle Kuzma realizes it's only a matter of time now before he's traded. He went from hanging out with Lebron and AD off the court to now waiting to be sent packing.

Bradley Beal is angry and the Wizards better find out why, and fix it, immediately

Image

Bradley Beal’s pique after his team’s 115-106 loss to the Bulls was real. Really real. A source who was also there told me Thursday that Beal was as angry with and emotional about his team as he’s ever been since being drafted by the Wizards in 2012.

So it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes-level powers of deduction to conclude Beal’s frustration is mainly inside the locker room. Whatever Beal is ticked off about, the Wizards better address it, and right now. They did enough in the summer to convince Beal to take his name out of the 2021 free agent sweepstakes. But having a star under a long-term contract does not inoculate any team, anymore, from losing him.

And Beal is as respected a guy as there is in the game, with any number of great players who’d love to team up with him down the road...the Wizards have been put on notice right now by their best player that while this season has had enough light and happy moments to avoid being a total disaster, they’ve still got a lot of work to do to make their shop best in class — and to keep Beal from keeping his options open.

If this happens I never thought Minnesota would have been able to move Wiggins so early.

Any deal that would send D’Angelo Russell to Minnesota before the trade deadline would involve Wiggins going to Golden State, sources say https://www.theringer.com/nba/2020/2/4/21123496/andrew-wiggins-trade-golden-state-warriors-dangelo-russell

PHI is waiving Trey Burke, and it surprises me a bit as he was playing well for what I saw of PHI.
I would have take him if we didn't have Trae+Teague+Goodwin

It makes sense why Golden State did the trade. Wiggins will believe in the GS culture and take his game to another level. I can only be positive when it comes to him going forward..lol

Why did Golden State want to trade DLo so badly?

Elton Brand did a great job acquiring these two to help for the postseason.

Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Elton Brand announced today that the team has acquired Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III from Golden State in exchange for three second-round picks (2020 Dallas, 2021 Denver and 2022 Toronto).
