Links: Washington Wizards Invite Brian Cook To Camp

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Saturday links:

  • Veteran punchline Brian Cook has reportedly been invited to Wizards camp, but Mike would be surprised if the team uses its 15th and final roster spot on a jump-shooting big man who's no longer all that great at shooting. [Us | Wizards Insider]
  • BNIE thinks the Knicks are a critical injury at point guard or center from duking it out with the Wiz for a low playoff seed in 2013.
  • The best anecdote from the USA Today story on Maurice Evans (the lede of yesterday's Links post) detailed how Evans made sure on multiple occasions that Jordan Crawford was not late for the team plane. This service will be sorely missed. [Ball Don't Lie]
  • An assortment of Wizards nuggets, including a mixtape of Andray Blatche "working out." [Truth About It]
  • Wizards assistant Sam Cassell is critical of the NCAA for ruling that his son is ineligible to play at the University of Maryland. [Terrapins Insider]
  • More on JaVale McGee's "breakout potential." Spare me. [ESPN]
  • Tom Ziller thinks the oncoming NHL lockout is a preview of what NBA fans can expect in 2017. Oh joy!! [SB Nation]
  • This was a big story yesterday, so you probably heard about Derrick Rose getting all emotional at a promotional event for his latest sneaker. It's pretty touching (not the sneaker part, the getting-all-emotional part). [Ball Don't Lie]
  • The Mavericks and Rockets are among the teams interested in signing James Harden next offseason if he reaches the open market. [SB Nation]
  • Speaking of next offseason, there's a Wizard on Sports Illustrated's list of the top free agents in the 2013 class. [SI]
