Eastern Notes: Broekhoff, Young, Heat, Celtics

Ryan Broekhoff gives the Sixers an extra shooter at their disposal, Derek Bodner of The Athletic notes. Philadelphia reached an agreement with Broekhoff to fill out its roster in Orlando. Broekhoff averaged 40.3% on 3-point attempts while playing for the Mavericks, who waived him in February. However, Broekhoff’s one-dimensional game and defensive limitations make it unlikely he will play significant minutes, Bodner adds.

We have more from around the Eastern Conference:

  • Hawks star guard Trae Young will sign with Klutch Sports, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports tweets. Young was previously represented by Octagon. Omar Wilkes, who has been Young’s agent since the guard entered the league in 2018, recently left Octagon to become Klutch Sports’ head of basketball operations, Haynes notes. Young is eligible to sign a rookie scale extension after next season.
  • The Heat have closed their practice facility for player workouts until at least Monday in the aftermath of Derrick Jones Jr.‘s positive COVID-19 test, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets. Jones, whose positive test was revealed on Thursday, is eventually expected to rejoin the team for the league’s restart in Orlando. A Heat staff member has also tested positive, Jackson adds in a separate tweet.
  • The Celtics will not renew the contract of advance scout Gary Schmidt, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald tweets. Schmidt had scouted for Boston since the 2014/15 season.

    How good will Hawks be from 2025 to 2030 if they have Edwards Young Collins?

    The rest vet min contracts

        In 5 to 10 years BOS will be their usual mediocre to bad & MIL will be winding down on Giannis career if he stays, so no one can doubt ATL will be a much better team by then, with Young/Collins!

          “In 5 to 10 years BOS will be their usual mediocre to bad”

          Boston has only sported a losing record 5 times in the last 19 years. What on earth are you talking about?

  2. Skip, Tampa

    That’s all if Collins isn’t traded to the Warriors for thier #1 pick this year.
    A Young / Edwards backcourt is certainly very enticing.

    Atlanta will find away to mess it up. Trae is a total defensive liability as well. Cam Reddish is the key If he can rise they will too.

      Despite what the Atlanta fans keep telling themselves, Trae will never be anything close to a potential MVP like Luka. Dumb trade Hawks.
