And-Ones: Wisconsin Herd, Davis, Hall, Tax Teams

The Bucks’ G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, plans to opt out of the proposed G League bubble season in Atlanta, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets. They’ll be the 10th NBA franchise to pass on the bubble event. For a list of teams expected to participate, follow this link.

We have more from around the basketball world:

  • Former NBA guard Baron Davis and rapper Percy “Master P” Miller are in negotiations to acquire Reebok, Eric Woodyard of ESPN tweets. According to Forbes, Reebok’s asking price from its parent company Adidas is around $2.4 billion. Master P says they’re “prepared financially” after a couple months of negotiations, Woodard adds.
  • Big man Donta Hall is joining the G League Ignite as one of its veteran players, Marc Stein of the New York Times tweets. The Ignite includes top prospects for next year’s draft who decided against playing in college this season. Hall spent most of last season with the Pistons’ G League team in Grand Rapids. Hall also saw action in four games with Detroit and five games as a substitute player for the Nets during the restart.
  • Who were the worst teams in NBA history to pay the luxury tax? Bryan Kalbrosky of Hoops Hype takes a deep dive into that subject. Not surprisingly, the Knicks snagged three of top six spots on the list.

    The Isiah years. We’re still paying the price for that. Another Dolan move. This is what happens when your owner. Thinks he knows better than all. Cause he pays the bills.

      Even if you combined all of those tax bills it would probably still be far less than the one Golden State will be facing in 2021, close to $137M.

    How are master p and Baron Davis able to put together 2.4 billion?!

    • Perhaps they cobbled together 4,800 people who each contribute half a million dollars and voila! They have $2.4 billion.

      The real question is how are they going to make Reebok successful?

      • hiflew

        Exactly. This is not 1989. Reebok was once right up there with Nike, but not now. Baron Davis looks like he might be a graduate of the Curt Schilling School of Losing Your Athletic Fortune in Business.

      The same way Arby’s bought BWW’s. Who knows. But RBK is going under. Just let Nike buy them now.

      • Little_Dunker_45

        Yeah let Nike buy Reebok. More monopolies that’s what this world needs..smdh

        • hiflew

          It’s not a monopoly. Adidas and others are still around. It’s a successful company absorbing a non-successful company in order to save some jobs. They won’t save all the jobs, but if Reebok goes belly up, which will happen eventually, all the jobs will be gone.

          • Little_Dunker_45

            Why dont u stick to basketball and leave business to the grown ups?

  3. The rockets have wasted every single luxury tax dollar they’ve ever spent with their zero championships since 95, the bulls knicks hornets pelicans jazz trailblazers etc are all in that same boat, warriors have actually paid the tax to win, that’s the best type of franchise, a winner

  4. x%sure

    DWTS joke: Master P will fashion a new look for Reebok and model them on “Dancing with the Stars”.

    • MarlinsFanBase

      My classic Reebok sneakers are going to be cool again! Unfortunately, they are going to go up in price by $50 now.
