What’s the buzz on Twitter?

KAT says the last play of the game was drawn up for him. With a laugh, he said, “but that didn’t work out”.
He said Covington knew it was going to him so he just denied the ball, which helped open a lane for DLo to attack the basket. – 1:13 AM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Karl-Anthony Towns said the last play was drawn up for him to get the ball, but Covington was playing him hard and said he told D-Lo to go to the basket instead because they were playing him and Edwards tight. – 1:10 AM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Covington’s troubles around the basket benefit the Wolves all these years later. – 12:27 AM

More on this storyline

Portland’s Robert Covington, league sources say, is a trade target who interests the Jazz given their well-known desire to upgrade defensively on the wing. -via marcstein.substack.com / January 24, 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski on the Blazers: They’ve been very active in the trade market. They want to continue to build around Damian Lillard. They’ve had discussions on players like Robert Covington or Jusuf Nurkic. -via YouTube / January 13, 2022

Brian Windhorst on the Blazers: You wonder if there’s Tankathon coming. And people in the league are already watching… Will Covington get traded? Will Norman Powell be traded? You know, will they try to clear out some stuff because Anfernee Simons is playing great too. Will they clear out some some space for him to sign him? -via Spotify / January 8, 2022
