And-Ones: Georges-Hunt, Robinson, Gortat, Gordon

The first domino of the NBA offseason fell tonight with the Clippers sending Austin Rivers to the Wizards for Marcin Gortat. As we wait to see what other moves the offseason brings, let’s take a look at some news and notes from around the league:

  • The Wolves will not tender Marcus Georges-Hunt a qualifying offer, Michael Scotto of The Atlantic tweets. Georges-Hunt, who played in 42 games for Minnesota last season, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
  • Glenn Robinson, who will hit the unrestricted free agent market, has changed representatives, leaving CAA and signing with a group of independent agents. He’ll be represented by the team of Jelani Floyd, Daniel Poneman, Mike Naiditch, and E.J. Kusnyer, according to Kevin O’ Connor of the Ringer (Twitter link).
  • NBA.com’s David Aldridge isn’t surprised that the Wizards dealt Gortat, tweeting that Gortat and Wall were “oil and water.” The scribe adds that Washington is now in need of a big man and he speculates that Nerlens Noel could be a fit in D.C.
  • The Kings like Aaron Gordon, but view him as a power forward, the same position as Marvin Bagley, their top selection in this year’s draft, James Ham of NBC Sports writes. Ham adds that it’s unlikely Sacramento chases the 22-year-old.

      Hahaha. Only in Vlade’s fixated-on-big-men-world can Bagley play the 3. They badly need a 3 that can shoot. Prob should deal WCS and try to get one.

        Shumpert should be fresh & ready

        I think people are saying Bagwell will be a 3 because that position lets him wander, or more accurately, ignore what he should be doing.

    Glenn Robinson needed to leave he wasnt getting much playin time I believe or was he? Anywho he needs more minutes than they gave him.

    Also the gortat trade wasnt so suprising I felt some tension comin on after the spoon fed basket comment . But rivers haha his dad dont want him.
    Aaron gordon should leave to another team. Maybe the bulls hahaha. Just my opinion tho not thinkin it thru

        Robinson needs to tell his new group to get a name, else they will be The Glenn Robinson Quartet.

        Doc Rivers did his kid a favor by not blocking his son’s trade, now that he’s established and effective. But WAS is loaded at guard; He may get traded again.

        Another center opening, another Nerlens Noel suggestion. At least this one fits the captain’s request.

    Actually I think Noel would actually work in Washington, he’s what Wall wanted an athletic big.
