Last night and this morning, what more interesting events happened in the NBA? Let's sort it out briefly!
The Warriors lay off Livingston, and the Triple Crown veteran is determined to continue to play in the NBA
Beijing time on July 10, according to Woj reports, the Warriors will lay off Livingston. Livingston's salary next season is 7.7 million US dollars, of which only 2 million are guaranteed. After being cut, he will continue to play in the NBA arena!
As the Warriors completed Russell’s first sign and then changed this season, a hard salary cap of 138.9 million was generated. With yesterday’s signing of Burks and Spelman, the Warriors The team's cap space is only 880,000. Therefore, Livingston is destined not to stay in the team. After the layoff of Livingston, the Warriors will pay him 2 million in three seasons (each season accounts for 666,000 salary space). Current salary space for the WarriorsOnly 219,000 left, which also announced the end of the Warriors operations this summer!
In fact, when Durant left, Russell signed and then changed, and the team sent Iguodala away, the hope that Livingston could stay was very slim. However, he still agreed to transfer the contract to a full guarantee date, postponing it from June 30 to July 10. This move gives the Warriors more flexibility in the free agent market this summer!
As one of the warriors "Xuan Ming two elders", although Livingston's athletic status continues to decline with age, it still plays a decisive role in the locker room. Thanks to Liwen for his dedication over the past 5 years, and wish the road ahead well!
Morris is considering re-signing and may join the Knicks
According to woj, Morris, who had previously reached a two-year 20 million verbal franchise agreement with the Spurs, is reconsidering the agreement.
Marcus Morris is considering reaching an agreement with the Knicks. The latter and Reggie Bullock are renegotiating the agreement, which may be able to free up enough salary space to sign Marcus Morris.
According to Yahoo Sports reporter Chris Haynes, the Knicks provided Morris with a one-year 15 million contract.
In order to provide Morris with a full middle-class contract worth 9.3 million, the Spurs traded Davis Bertans to the Wizards and renegotiated a two-year 13 million contract with DeMarre Carroll. 3 years and 21 million (the contract period for the player to be changed after signing is at least 3 years), and then through the special case of trading Bertans, Carol is obtained by signing and changing.
Many fans compare this incident to Jordan's repentance. But at that time the Lone Ranger could directly sign Jordan, and now in order to give Morris a full middle class, the Spurs have sent Bertans away. In a business league like the NBA, there is nothing wrong with players fighting for their best interests! But now that I have agreed verbally, it is indeed a bit unnatural to repent again now!

During the challenge, the team must have the remaining timeout. After the dispute occurs, the coach must immediately request a timeout, and then make a gesture of rotating the index finger to the referee. If the challenge is successful, the team will be able to retain the timeout; if it fails, the team will lose the timeout.
At this stage, coaches cannot challenge unspoken fouls. According to sources, it will take longer and more difficult to further strengthen the challenge rules.
The emergence of this move can be regarded as a manifestation of the NBA's newness with the times. It will undoubtedly make the game more fair and the future NBA will be more perfect!
