Rockets waived Isaiah Hartenstein to sign David Nwaba. I'd look to make a waiver claim on Hartenstein.

I was a little surprised by that. I know they are all in on small ball, but Hartenstein was developing well, was cheap, very efficient, and essentially their only big.

They have Caboclo, but he still is raw. He is progressing though. Insane shot-blocking, good athleticism, developing stretch ability.

I still like Caboclo, too. There's something there.

I wonder how many players will catch it prior to the July 25 season start date? And how many might catch it but not want to make a public announcement?

As a die hard fan since 92 I would be able to recite that Current year’s roster easily. With everything that has happened in 2020 I have been so distracted and haven’t hardly even been thinking of sports. I honestly can’t remember this years roster without looking. Sad times for sure.

Do I want i shell of NBA basketball to resume in Orlando? I don’t even know. I think it’ll be like watching summer league games, watching 2 teams compete in an empty gym.

Part of me wants a new source of entertainment which would be the resuming of the season but part of me knows it won’t feel the same and would rather just punt til things get better.

Seems like the Kings are having a major outbreak among their players.

Right. Brooklyn and the Lakers had a number of players that weren't revealed. Phoenix has at least two. And I'm sure I am missing some reported cases as well.

Woj claims that 16 players of 302 have COVID. So, like, 5% of the league already. That's much higher than the known percentage of Americans who have COVID. Is it reasonable to assume that several more players are likely to catch it? Will it sweep through the teams and the league?

I wonder how many payers are going out at night. And I wonder how effective the prevention methods are at keeping those players from spreading it during workouts.

About as effective as it was keeping Barkley from the bars during the playoffs.
