Pretty good BJ Armstrong interview on a Ringer podcast with Mark Titus. His interview starts at about 31 minutes in.

I read BJ lost Draymond Green as a client to Rich Paul, so Derrick Rose is back to being his biggest profile client.

Reggie is basically Wilt Chamberlain in the Big 3, it rules.

I was going to say he’s old for an intern, but I forgot he played in the NFL until 2015. Still old for an intern, but he at least had a reason to delay a normal career.

Cook has always been a big guy, but he is fucking jacked right now.

Still surprised that he chose Denver. They are one of the deeper teams in the league. If the hope was to work his way onto an active roster and get some playing time, Denver is not the most optimal situation for him. I watched the game yesterday and he’s in the second unit and not starting. Denver does have one of the best development programs in the league. Tim Connelly is legit.

Jok didn’t get any playing time for Orlando.

Maybe that's it. Uthoff played with the Red Claws or whatever and his 10 day contracts ended up coming from the Mavs.

I think they might have actually signed him to a solid 2 way deal. He is currently listed on their actual roster and not just the Nuggets Summer League roster.

His prospects are long term and it was very very unlikely he was going to make any roster this season but might be good for him long term.

He signed a partially guaranteed contract (ex-10) which is one step below a 2-way. This means he gets some up front money and an invite to training camp (unless he’s waived), but is not guaranteed a roster spot. A better situation for him would be on a 2-way contact which is fully guaranteed for a year or two. His ex-10 can be converted into a 2-way. But given he’s running with the second unit, not looking likely. As far as his guaranteed money, he most likely got $50k. These are the types of contracts that were created to incentivize players not to go overseas. Teams can have 6 of these players and if Tyler's doesn't get converted into a 2-way before the season starts, he will be waived and free to sign with anyone including Denver’s D-League team.

Uthoff is on ESPNU right now. Has had a strong start to the game. Steal, a couple of buckets.

Oddly enough, despite being know for their development, Denver is one of just three teams that don't have a G-League affiliate. Monte Morris played with the Rio Grande (Houston affilate) two years ago on his 2-way. Thomas Welsh was on a 2-way all year last year for Denver and he played at least some with the Iowa Wolves when he wasn't in Denver.

He also might be on the second unit because he joined late and has been hurt.

Looks like Denver still has Welsh signed to a 2-way and may have one opening depending on what Goodwin does... https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2019/07/201920-nba-two-way-contract-tracker.html

Maybe, maybe not. They are loaded at the forward position and said so as much on the broadcast yesterday. What I love about Summer League is they usually interview each coach or GM during the game and they give a pretty good lay of the land. When they went through the depth chart and spoke about the summer league's roster, Tyler was not mentioned once. They talked a lot about Vlatko Cancar, Terrence Davis, Thomas Welsh, Jarred Vanderbilt, and of course Porter Jr. FWIW, Cook looked lost on defense (that nasty block aside). Here's to hoping he gets a good look over the next few weeks and plays well.

Uthoff is playing INCREDIBLE today. Just finished off a fantastic 'and-1' with a Eurostep. Middle of the 4th and he has 17 on 6 of 7 shooting -- 3 steals, 3 blocks. 2 assists. Leading the team in scoring.

More than likely won’t happen, but it’d be cool if he could finally stick in the league somewhere for a couple years.

I got crushed in the dick AND balls by an Andrew Brommer beach volleyball spike tonight. We got the last laugh, though- won 2 of 3 sets.

Uthoff May have already earned his camp invite with the Pistons. Hopefully he has another good night tonight

what is it that holds Uthoff back? He's 6'9, can shoot the 3, isn't stupid with the ball

how can that guy not be a usual 3-and-D player who stands in the corner on offense without moving and plays decent defense off the bench on at least some team in the NBA?

is he way less athletic and way more shitty on defense than I remember?

He’s just not fast and aggressive enough to play with the elite level NBA players.

He actually has been aggressive in taking it to the basket this summer. I think his game has improved there since leaving Iowa

Jok went from tweeting at the ICubs that he hadn’t been to a game since high school to throwing out the first pitch within 15 hours. Sounds like he should have taken it a little slower!

No idea where to put this. The Iowa United team plays tonight. Some former guys are playing:

Nick Baer
Melsahn Basabe
Matt Gatens
Cyrus Tate

Horner is coaching. Peter Jok I believe pulled out.

This is the first time I’ve had the same rooting interest as Chris Williams. I don’t think I can do this.

Kinda fun to watch with an excited crowd. Nothing else on. Baer just lost his manhood to a Cleanthony Early block.
