Social Influencer? DeRozan IG Scrub Hints At Trade

Social Influencer? DeRozan IG Scrub Hints At Trade

Is DeMar DeRozan on his way out from the San Antonio Spurs?  That’s one of the big questions in NBA circles as he seems to have gotten rid of data from his Instagram account.  It could be because DeRozan is embarrassed about the team’s performance this season, but it could also be because he’s about to be traded.  The last time he cleared his Instagram was when he was bumped from the Toronto Raptors.

Rumours Other The DeRozan

Carmelo Anthony just got back into the NBA action and some are already saying he’s about to call it quits.  Back on the court with the Portland Trail Blazers, he makes it clear that this is anything but a cameo performance, telling The Athletic, “This ain’t a damn farewell tour. My love for the game don’t [sic] stop. I don’t know where this ‘farewell tour’ thing came from. I’ve never talked about a farewell tour. I know what I can do and I believe in myself. When a farewell tour comes, it comes. That’s not something I think about. I’m not thinking about retiring right now. I had [thought about it] during this past stretch over the summer. But ain’t no retiring in my mind. I believe in what I have left.”

The Detroit Pistons, like the Spurs, and DeMar DeRozan, are fighting for survival this year.  The team hasn’t been able to get disciplined enough to work together and it might be time to bring in some fresh talent.  The Bleacher Report’s Andy Bailey thinks that Kyle Lowry might be that talent and asserts that the guard could potentially even turn around the current season if the Pistons were to move quick enough.  However, that isn’t likely to happen since the Raptors would absolutely be looking for top dollar in any trade.

Kevin Durant is as nimble off the court as he is on it.  He’s behind the Thirty Five Ventures investment company, alongside Rich Kleiman, and the company is doing well.  It’s involved in what will eventually be a strong consumer market in all of North America and has just marked its second partnership in the cannabis industry.  The first was with Dutchie, and this latest is with Canada-based Canopy Rivers.  Apart from offering guidance to Canopy, Thirty Five Ventures will invest with the company in other marijuana-related entities.

It had to happen sooner or later.  Despite being one of the NBA’s most prolific shooters, Joel Embiid ran into a brick wall.  The Philadelphia 76ers forward/center went scoreless against the Raptors when the two teams met recently – the first time he has ever not scored a single point in a game.  All good things must come to an end, but there’s little doubt that he’ll rebound and be back to his former self in no time.

Andre Iguodala is all but done as part of the Memphis Grizzlies.  However, the team isn’t willing to give him up without getting something in return.  That means that if a team like the Lakers, the Rockets or the Clippers – all of whom have shown interest – want him, they’re going to have to give up someone big in a trade.  Next month will determine where he goes when free agents who signed this year can officially be traded.

NBA Schedule Rumours

There’s a rumor floating around that the NBA is giving serious thought to making changes to the season schedule.  Notably, the regular season would go from 82 to 78 games, but would tack on a “mid-season tournament.”  Both ideas are meeting with mixed reactions, especially since there doesn’t appear to be much players will gain out of the changes.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban puts profit over players in rejecting the idea, essentially saying that it would cause too big a loss in revenue.  James Harden, the All-Star player with the Houston Rockets, is puzzled by the idea of a mid-season tournament and sums up his opinion nicely in four words.  He states, “Are we in college?”
