New Style Cheap Basketball San Antonio Spurs Jerseys For Sale

Orlando Magic shooting guard and Houston native Jonathon Simmons said he had to “ride a boat, walk through muddy water and ride on the back of a dumpster truck” to escape from the city’s flooding caused by the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Speaking to the Magic’s official website, Simmons detailed how he prepared for and ultimately escaped from the storm that caused massive flooding in the Houston area and beyond.

Rockets owner reportedly ups aid as help grows
Rockets owner Leslie Alexander, who originally donated $4 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, has instead reportedly upped his pledge to $10 million as more aid comes in from all corners of the sports world.
Simmons said that he left his high-rise condo in the area to go to a friend’s house in Richmond, Texas, on Saturday and packed enough items to stay there for three days, but more friends who were flooded out of where they had holed up joined Simmons’ group.

“So that gave us another 11 extra people and most of them were kids,” Simmons explained. “We had to let the kids eat first, so most of the last two days it was kind of rough [without food].

“There was at least 20 people in the house and probably eight of them were kids,” Simmons said. “When I was little, my mom always kept the fridge full of stuff [during hurricanes]. This time, I ate a pack of Ramen noodles and that’s all for like a day and a half.”

Though their lodging in Richmond was never flooded due to the house being on a hill, other homes in the neighborhood were, and Simmons and his friends had to wade through flood waters to get out of the area. Simmons said he hasn’t been back to his condo and doesn’t have his car with him.

After two years with the San Antonio Spurs, Simmons signed as a free agent with the Magic this offseason. He said he’s heard from Spurs general manager R.C. Buford, Magic coach Frank Vogel and various teammates.

“It’s devastating,” Simmons said of the storm. “Luckily, none of my family was seriously affected, but I see a lot of my friends suffering and that’s difficult. But I’m also proud of how the city of Houston has come together to help one another. On the upside and the brighter side, there’s that seeing how people have been there to help one another.”

Authentic NBA Womens Ryan Anderson Houston Rockets Jerseys Cheap China 2017

The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have re-engaged on trade talks involving 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony, with the Rockets again canvassing third-team trade partners to construct a deal, league sources told ESPN.

Anthony remains steadfast that he only plans to waive his no-trade clause for the Rockets and refuses to expand his list to include more possible destinations, league sources said.

How a blockbuster trade could unleash ‘Team USA’ Melo
If the Knicks and Rockets reach a deal, Carmelo Anthony would instantly become the second or third option in Houston — a move that could turn him into the best version of himself.
Nevertheless, no pathway has emerged for a deal directly between the two teams, and finding a broader package to include forward Ryan Anderson and the three years and $60 million left on his contract remains problematic, league sources said.

Houston and New York made significant progress on a deal when Phil Jackson was Knicks president, but that changed with the hiring of new general manager Scott Perry, who has been far more particular about the package he’d want in return for Anthony.

The Knicks remain willing to start training camp with Anthony, 33, on the roster, and a real scenario exists in which the Rockets and Anthony remain patient that a deal could have to wait until the regular season is underway, league sources said. The Knicks want to trend younger, building around Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr., and Anthony playing a significant role could stifle their development.

Houston wants Anthony to join a lineup with James Harden and Chris Paul primarily to make a run in the playoffs together, and an in-season deal could still give them ample time to build chemistry for the postseason. Anthony and Paul are close friends.

Portland has kept an interest in Anthony, with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum continuing to recruit Anthony to consider the Blazers as an alternative to Houston, league sources said.

The Knicks have become willing again to make an Anthony deal before the start of training camp in September, especially after Anthony made it clear that the franchise’s hopes of getting him to embrace a return to the team — after months of Jackson’s pushing for Anthony to waive his no-trade — are fruitless.

The Knicks paused trade talks involving Anthony shortly after the hiring of Perry in mid-July, but they were unable to convince Anthony to reconsider his desire to be traded away — or add more teams to his wish list, league sources said.

Anthony had an earlier interest in waiving his no-trade for Cleveland, but that desire waned with Paul’s arrival in Houston and the upheaval surrounding Kyrie Irving’s and LeBron James’ futures with the Cavaliers.

Basketball New York Knicks Michael Beasley Jerseys Cheap For Sale

The New York Knicks have signed former No. 2 overall draft pick Michael Beasley to a one-year deal, the team announced Tuesday.

League sources told ESPN the deal is for the veteran’s minimum, which is $2,116,955, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

Beasley, originally drafted by the Miami Heat in 2008, averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 16 minutes per game last season for the Milwaukee Bucks. He shot a career-high 54.5 percent from the field while taking 7.3 shots per game.

The Knicks are Beasley’s sixth team in 10 seasons.

It is unclear where the 6-foot-9 Beasley will fit on the Knicks’ depth chart. If the organization executes a trade of Carmelo Anthony, Beasley could play significant minutes at small forward for New York.

With Ramon Sessions also officially signing his deal, the Knicks have 15 NBA contracts on their roster and one player — Luke Kornet — on a two-way contract. Unless they release a player, New York will have room for just one more two-way contract.
