At the request of Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown, former team great and NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson gave some words of encouragement to a squad in search of its first win of the season.
“What we have to understand is I hope the message registers,” Iverson said. “That’s all I can do is hope my voice means something to guys that are younger than me, and us guys that paved the way. … If only one guy got it, then I’m happy.”

San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay is declining his 2018-19 player option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, league sources tell ESPN.
Gay is turning down a salary of $8.8 million in order to hit free agency.

Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
