Less than a month ago, it was announced that Dan Reed was stepping down as NBA D-League President after serving in the role for more than a decade. Reed left the league to pursue an opportunity with the social networking juggernaut Facebook.
DleagueDigest.com recently received comment from the league office stating “at this time there is no timetable on a decision.”
Despite a target date not being available, there has been talk about some worthy candidates for the open position. According to one anonymous NBA D-League team source, “the best candidate is Tommy Smith. He has run a team, been a special assistant to the Deputy Commissioner on some projects, and is loved and respected by all the team owners.”
Sources: Kyrie Irving Getting Second Opinion on Left Knee
My understanding is that Kyrie Irving is getting a 2nd opinion on his left knee, perhaps as soon as tomorrow. Bottom line: he needs the screws out. Knee is flaring up. He will either play thru it going forward or … he will get thee screws out and won’t play at all. Stay tuned.

Texas freshman Mohamed Bamba announced Tuesday that he will enter the 2018 NBA draft.
“After an incredibly rewarding year at the University of Texas, I will not be returning to school as I will be entering the NBA draft,” Bamba said in a statement.
Bamba, a 7-foot center with a 7-foot-9 wingspan, was one of the top freshmen in college basketball this season. He averaged 12.9 points and 10.5 rebounds while ranking second nationally in blocks at 3.7 per game. Bamba totaled 15 double-doubles, including eight during an 11-game stretch in January and February.
