I asked Monty Williams about gang rebounding against Jonas Valanciunas, who is averaging 14.6 RPG. Monty said he likes the way his guards have been getting hands on the ball to tip it to a teammate. They want to be better at rebounding to start the year compared to last season. – 9:44 PM

GAME THEORY PODCAST: @NekiasNBA is here to answer 21 Questions! We run through the Heat, Bulls, Celtics, foul calls, Evan Mobley, Zion, and plenty more (full question list below).

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Now that’s 5:30 ET but with Brandon Ingram listed as doubtful and Zion Williamson still out after offseason foot surgery, this might be a game to rest Deandre Ayton as he’s still listed as questionable after injuring his leg against the Cavs. #Suns PM

Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
I see the same people in my mentions all the time about the Pelicans moving to some other city.
No one can seem to fathom Gayle Benson does not care about maximizing her asset.
It‘s a pro sports anomaly, but she cares far more about being beloved here than having more cash. – 5:04 PM
