The Spurs have added Denzel Mahoney and Jaylen Morris to the training camp roster.
Team back to 20 players.
Last time they signed Renfro and Holman, they waived them the following day to get their G-League rights.
Probably the same happening here. – 12:51 PM

“So [Tatum] came over and was like, ‘Jaylen, can I take a picture?’ I was like, ‘Cool. You know I’m always here for my fans.’”
The Jays reflect on their first snapshot together back in 2014 … and why it’s only going to get better with time.

“His potential is out the roof. He’s gonna be probably one of the best players when it’s all said and done … He still can’t guard me … but when it’s all said and done, Jayson Tatum is gonna be one of the greats.”

“I was raised on the belief that you gotta want for your brother what you want for yourself. I feel like I won a gold medal because he won one … I’m so close and into his journey, to see him win was like seeing me win. So that was dope.”

Nets Daily: Nets have a daily reminder of COVID’s toll. For past 18 months, New York has stored HUNDREDS of corpses from the pandemic in mobile morgues across the street from HSS. Dead from COVID but unclaimed, poor, unidentified. “Right outside my window,” as one Nets staffer told me. -via Twitter @NetsDaily / October 8, 2021

When Los Angeles’ new city ordinance requiring proof of vaccination to enter a wide range of indoor venues takes effect in November, those rules won’t apply at Staples Center, city and arena officials said, because a health order previously issued by the county covers the home of the NHL’s Kings and NBA’s Lakers and Clippers. -via Los Angeles Times / October 7, 2021

In Los Angeles, an unvaccinated Laker or Clipper could apparently still take part in home games, provided they provide proof of a negative test to comply with the county health order as it applies to Staples Center. The point could be moot for now, as both the Lakers and Clippers in recent weeks have said that their rosters are fully vaccinated, but teams often add new players throughout a season. -via Los Angeles Times / October 7, 2021
