  • Ivan Rabb did a video interview after a workout with the Indiana Pacers.
  • Can Jabari Bird get a shot in Northern California? He worked out with the Kings last Wednesday.
  • Jaylen Brown began a new webseries called “Hone the Pressure, It Makes Diamonds.” It is long, but should be compelling.



  • Long snapper Slater Zellers has received an offer from Cal. He talked with Trace Travers at Golden Bear Report.
