Ibaka also suspended for the Cleveland game.

Wondering if "getting suspended" will become the new way of "resting players"? Let's see if the Spurs try it.
So, is ESPN or TBS/TNT getting all bent out of shape for this player missing the big match likely on TV?

the Spurs have had enough injuries this season that they don't need to do it

I don't know if the players would be up for it because they don't get paid while suspended.

Some under-the-table arrangement can be made. "Personal services contract" and such. I mean, if it were worth it. Also, you can't be sure of the suspension or its timing.

Raptors didn't seem to miss Lowry or Ibaka tonight. Much deeper roster than last few years. Sweet to beat Cavs by 34 points.

Lakers have let it known Clarkson, Randle and Nance Jr are available.

Would this work?
Wolves - get Clarkson
Lakers - get Pekovic expiring and 2nd rounder.

Gives Wolves depth and 2nd unit scoring punch. Gives Lakers an additional 12.5M in cap space next summer.

I kinda feel bad for the guys who are balling on the Lakers. They just get traded because their ceiling isn't superstar level.

Are there Bucks 2021 title odds somewhere? Maybe those would have already priced in Kidd being out of the picture by then but the Bucks just got a lot more dangerous assuming they hire someone reasonable (Fizdale, JVG, etc) in the summer. No reason that roster should have a bottom 5 defense, could argue they have the most defensive potential or close to it. Horrible coaching job by Kidd.
