David Griffin has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Knicks’ GM job, as he and the team could not agree on a role, ESPN reported Sunday afternoon.
Womens Mark Clayton Jersey The Knicks are nearing negotiations to bring aboard former Cavaliers general manager David Griffin as the team’s top basketball executive, ESPN.com reports.
After Smith was drafted No. 9 overall in June, many of his old tweets were deleted quickly, including this NSFW gem.
Womens Mike Singletary Jersey Turns out, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was the reason Smith scrubbed his Twitter clean.
And you know, one of the first things after we drafted Dennis, and I’m talking to him on the phone, I’m like, Dude, I went through your Twitter account. It’s time to get on there and delete,’ Cuban told ESPN while at the Mavericks Summer League game Sunday.
And so, he went through it. And to his credit, they were gone. He had a lot of stupid stuff on there.
Smith isn’t the only athlete to have tweets come back to haunt him. Bears top pick Mitchell Trubisky had some awkward tweets resurface after the NFL Draft this year, as did Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.
And at this price and term, it’s hard to complain. Hill is only on the books for two years at full term before getting just a partial guarantee in year three. At an average annual value of $19 million, Hill is being paid right in line with his skill level on short term, which makes him an easily tradeable asset. The opportunity cost is that the Kings can’t use their salary cap space in other ways, a la trading for bad contracts while also taking on assets.
In my opinion, though, the amount he’ll help the team’s youth development outpaces the middling positive asset they’d get in return. It’s a give and take in all of these situations, and Hill is going to give the team more than he takes in actual cost as well as opportunity cost.
