How different is the NBA cap landscape for the summer of 2022 looking vs the last few years? I project just three teams to have cap space in July (pre-trade deadline projections):
1. DET $30.7M
2. ORL $25.2M
3. SAS $20.1M
Full pre-deadline projections coming soon for @spotrac! – 6:53 PM

Asked by a Houston reporter if becoming the all-time winningest regular season coach in NBA history will be meaningful to him, Pop said:
“It’s really not something I think about. It only comes up when someone like yourself brings it up, but it’s not meaningful to me.” – 6:46 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
The Spurs are without assistant coaches Becky Hammon, Mitch Johnson & Darius Songaila, who are all in Health and Safety Protocols. Stephen Silas said he hasn’t had a full in-person staff meeting in months to prevent the possibility of a staff-wide outbreak – 6:46 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Stephen Silas says Usman Garuba’s injured left wrist is “pretty bad”. He did not have further details, but added surgery is a possibility – 6:33 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Usman Garuba’s wrist injury is “pretty bad” Stephen Silas said. He did not have details. Surgery possible. – 6:26 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
Stephen Silas said Daishen Nix is a “super, super confident” player. “One of the things we wanted him to do was to get in better shape and he’s done that.” He’s impressed with how much he’s improved as a 19-year old. – 6:25 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“It seems like normalcy is coming around.” – Coach Stephen Silas on most teams getting rotations together after H&S impacted teams.
“They’re pretty much whole now.” – Silas on Spurs. He said with Keldon and Doug back, Spurs are a different team compared to when HOU played them – 6:19 PM
Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
Tell me Harden wasn’t out clubin’ night between road games in San Antonio and Minnesota!! Thirteen points on 5-13 in an 11-point, defenseless (136-125) loss. I did not watch so I’m guessing his man was Edwards, who notched 25 in same amount if time. – 6:16 PM
Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
Naturally, Harden would love to rejoin his Houston enabler, as well as get out of New York where the competition for adulation outside strip clubs is far too fierce… – 5:55 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Keita Bates-Diop entered health and safety protocols the Spurs announced earlier through the latest injury report.
Bates-Diop is the 12th player on the roster to have entered H&S protocols at one time this season. – 5:44 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Friday is Derrick White Bobblehead Night at the AT&T Center. Spurs Give’s 50/50 Rafffle will be donating 25 % of the money raised that night to Morgan’s Wonderland, which White supports through his work with Special Olympics.

Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
With the aid of Will Sevening, the #Spurs‘ Derrick White keeps getting up after getting knocked down.
“I make sure he earns his paycheck every game,” joked White, whose mug has been patched up countless times by the club’s longtime athletic trainer.
