Kristaps Porzingis trade timeline: Knicks wasted no time in deal with Mavs

first_imgIn the words of Ron Burgundy: “Boy, that escalated quickly.”The Knicks finalized a deal Thursday to send Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks in a move that happened extremely fast. At lunch, Knicks fans were enjoying their day knowing Porzingis was happy in New York and then things spiraled out of control. MORE: Pelicans’ patience with Davis is bad news for LakersThe deal happened so quickly NBA fans didn’t even have time to come up with fake deals in ESPN’s Trade Machine. Let’s take a look at how things came together from a meeting with executives to those same executives completing a trade just a few hours later.(All times Eastern)1:44 — Woj reports Porzingis had meeting with KnicksReporting with @ZachLowe and @RamonaShelburne: In meeting with management today, Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis expressed his concern with the losing, franchise direction and an uncertainty that a culture is developing that will enable sustainable organizational success.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 31, 2019ESPN’s veteran NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski also shared, “Porzingis wants to play for a winner in New York, but is searching for clarity on his future role with the team and Knicks direction. Porzingis — out with an ACL injury — can be a restricted free agent this summer.”So far, there’s nothing that directly indicates a trade, but it’s clear the star forward is unhappy and may enter restricted free agency. But multiple people pointed out why that didn’t make much sense financially. Porzingis would be giving up guaranteed money, and it’s likely the Knicks would have matched whatever offer he received.2:54 — The apparent trade requestKristaps Porzingis left the Knicks with the impression that he prefers to be traded, league sources tell @ramonashelburne and me. Knicks are expected to commence discussions on moving him ahead of next Thursday’s deadline.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 31, 2019Exactly one hour later, it turns out that meeting was a little more serious than previously thought.At 3:14 p.m., Woj said the Nets, Clippers, Heat, Spurs and Raptors were among the teams interested in trading for Porzingis. But before fans of those teams could get too excited, New York Times reporter Marc Stein dropped this…3:37 — Mavs want PorzingisThe Dallas Mavericks are nearing a trade to acquire Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks, according to league sources— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) January 31, 20193:37 — Woj makes typoNew York is finalizing a deal to acquire Kristaps Porzingis, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 31, 2019THIS HAPPENED SO FAST. WOJ COULDN’T EVEN THINK CLEARLY.3:37 — Yes, we’re still on this minute.New York and Dallas are in deep discussions on a trade that would send Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks and Dennis Smith Jr. to the Knicks, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 31, 2019This is the third tweet from a third NBA reporter in the same minute. At first, all we knew was that the Mavs were interested, but The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports that Dennis Smith Jr. is involved in the deal.3:37 — OMG HOW MUCH CAN YOU PACK INTO THIS MINUTE?!?!The Mavericks have agreed to take on the contracts of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee to faciliate a Porzingis trade and are working to complete the transaction today, league sources say— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) January 31, 2019This really shows the power of Twitter. We just got four reports on the same trade.Did the Knicks and Mavs just put Woj, Stein and Charania on a teleconference call so they could tweet out the details of this deal in real time? Anyway, we now know that Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee are also involved in this trade.3:38 — More Mavs involved in dealThe Knicks would receive Dennis Smith Jr. and the expiring contracts of DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews in the proposed trade, according to league sources— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) January 31, 20193:59 — OK, I’ve lost track. What is this trade?Sources: Full players involved in Knicks/Mavericks deal:Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Trey Burke to Dallas.Dennis Smith Jr., Wes Matthews, DeAndre Jordan and likely first-round draft pick compensation to New York.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 31, 20195:20 — There’s moreSources: Dallas’ draft compensation to New York in Kristaps Porzingis deal: Two future first-round picks.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 31, 20196:06 — Deal is finalKNICKS ACQUIRE DENNIS SMITH JR., DEANDRE JORDAN, WESLEY MATTHEWS, AND TWO FUTURE FIRST ROUND PICKS pic.twitter.com/I40j5mEYL9— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) January 31, 2019The Knicks decided to yell at us to announce the news of the trade.In conclusion…To recap: within a three-hour span, Knicks fans went from knowing Porzingis was upset (but still very much on the team), to him apparently wanting a trade, to having him off the team all together. It’s pretty remarkable just how fast all of this went down and when the new information emerged. When reading Woj’s original report, it’s not clear if Porzingis even requested a trade, or if he just left the team with that impression.Porzingis: “Man, it’s cold out here. Wouldn’t mind getting out of town for a bit to warm up”Knicks: “So you’re demanding a trade??”KP: “What, no I didn’t…”Knicks: “Say no more! Mark, hello, yes as we were saying”— Contrarian Contrarian (@basquiatball) January 31, 2019At any rate, Porzingis should pair well with Rookie of the Year favorite Luka Doncic. And as ESPN’s Bobby Marks noted, “The Knicks could be staring at $74.6M in projected cap space for next season. That would be good enough for [two] max slots.”So now Knicks fans can start to Photoshop Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant into New York jerseys to ease their pain of losing Porzingis.last_img read more

Saints ink commitment from Thunder Cats Fuchs as team prepares for stretch run

first_img“My goals for next year at Selkirk are to excel both on and off the ice in the classroom,” says Fuchs. “There’s nothing more I’d want than to win a BCIHL championship while staying on top of my school work and maintaining a good grade point average.”Similar to the Saints, Fuchs and the Thunder Cats are currently chasing down a home ice playoff spot and sit two points back of the Kimberley Dynamiters in the Eddie Mountain Division with six games remaining. They will need Fuch’s experience down the stretch.“Marcel is a hard worker on and off the ice and a high character individual who will thrive in any role given to him,” says Dubois.“He has been a tremendous leader for us this season and understands the level of commitment and focus that it takes to be part of a winning program. The Thunder Cats organization is thrilled that he will have a chance to advance his academic and hockey careers in the BCIHL.”After a weekend off, this year’s edition of the Saints return to the ice on Friday night when they will host the Simon Fraser University Clan at the Castlegar Recreation Complex starting at 7 p.m.The game is Alumni Night as Selkirk honours past members of the Saints.With Trinity Western University solidified in the BCIHL top spot, the Saints are focussed on capturing second place which would give them the coveted home-ice advantage when the playoffs start in March.The Saints are currently in third place in the league, one point behind the University of Victoria and two points ahead of Simon Fraser.The Saints have six regular season games remaining, including four straight on the road to end the season.The Saints last regular season home game is February 13 against Eastern Washington University.Playoffs start on March 6. As the Selkirk College Saints head into the stretch run of the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) season, the two-time defending champions are also looking further down the road to the team that will hit the ice in 2015-2016.Earlier this week, the Saints announced the playing commitment from Marcel Fuchs to attend and compete for the Saints beginning next season.Fuchs is a 5-foot-11, 180 pound forward who is completing his third season of junior hockey with the Kootenay International Hockey League’s (KIJHL) Creston Valley Thunder Cats.“We are excited to have Marcel join our recruiting class,” says Saints head coach Alex Evin. “Our program continues to add individuals who take pride in both their academics and athletics.”Now coached by former Saints bench boss Jeff Dubois, Fuchs has appeared in 41 games this season. The 20-year-old who is originally from Mission, BC has accumulated 22 points, with two of his team’s eight goals being game winners.Overall, Fuchs has played 142 games in the KIJHL, scoring a total of 69 points and 179 penalty minutes. In 2013-2014 playoffs, Fuchs scored eight points in 16 games but the Thunder Cats lost to the eventual KIJHL Champion Beaver Valley Nitehawks in the Kootenay Conference Championship series.“I was able to watch Marcel quite a few times during his KIJHL career and he always brings energy and a consistent work ethic to each game,” says Evin. “He will be a capable two-way player and penalty killer who takes pride in playing the game the right way.”Fuchs plans to enroll in the General Associate of Science Program at Selkirk College and later pursue a degree in Respiratory Therapy.last_img read more

Lightweight budget wrangling?

first_imgSACRAMENTO – Six lawmakers are scheduled this week to begin the tedious task of ironing out differences between Assembly and Senate versions of the state budget, but this year their job could be easier than usual. Both chambers have produced spending plans for the fiscal year starting July 1 that are remarkably similar to the $131.1 billion budget Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed earlier this month. “Over the years I’ve worked here, this is about the smallest number of differences between us and the Senate and us and the administration that I’ve seen,” said Craig Cornett, budget adviser to Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, D-Los Angeles. Nu ez is predicting that lawmakers will approve a new budget by the rarely met June 15 deadline. A bill by Assemblyman Ira Ruskin, D-Los Altos, would authorize $2,500 discounts for consumers who buy new cars that emit low amounts of greenhouse gases and impose $2,500 surcharges on new vehicles that produce high levels of greenhouse gases, which are blamed for global warming. Legislation by Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, would limit greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Another Perata bill would set up a discount prescription drug program for uninsured, low-income Californians. A bill by Assemblyman Johan Klehs, D-Hayward, would impose a so-called excess profits tax on oil companies. Another attempt by Cedillo would allow illegal immigrants to qualify for California driver’s licenses. Schwarzenegger vetoed two earlier versions of the legislation. Legislation by Sen. Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, would limit use of 25-years-to-life, “three-strikes” prison sentences for nonviolent crimes. A bill by Nu ez would help telephone companies get into the cable television business. A Lieber bill would require the state Air Resources Board to control indoor air pollution emitted by building products, consumer goods, appliances – even cockroaches. An attempt by Sen. Debra Ortiz, D-Sacramento, and Attorney General Bill Lockyer would block Internet sales of cigarettes to minors by requiring that shipments of cigarettes into the state go only to licensed dealers. Legislation introduced by Sen. Alan Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, with the support of animal rights groups would limit the tethering of dogs.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I really do. … We do spend a little bit more than the governor does … but not by more than 1 percent.” In most years, lawmakers end up in a partisan deadlock over the budget that can drag on for weeks – even months – because California is one of the few states that requires more than simple majority votes to pass a budget. This week also is the deadline for more than 500 bills to pass their initial house, and both the Assembly and Senate have scheduled long sessions to deal with those measures. Here are some of the bills awaiting votes: Measures by Assemblywoman Sally Lieber, D-Mountain View, and Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, would raise the state minimum wage by $1 an hour, to $7.75, and require annual increases to keep up with inflation. Schwarzenegger, who has vetoed two previous attempts to raise the wage, supports the $1 increase but opposes the automatic cost-of-living adjustments. last_img read more

Foam Under Footings

Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img UPDATED on January 26, 2018A wide variety of residential foundation types, including monolithic slabs, crawl space foundations, and basement foundations, can lose heat due to poorly detailed insulation at the concrete footings. That’s because many construction details, including some details on the GBA Web site, fail to address thermal bridging through foundation footings.There are several possible ways to address these thermal bridges, including:In general, deep footings will lose less heat during the winter than shallow footings. Whether the amount of heat leaking through a concrete footing is enough to worry about depends on your climate and your performance goals; if you hope to achieve the Passivhaus standard, such a thermal bridge is clearly a no-no.Traditional wisdom taught builders to place footings on undisturbed soil below the frost line. If footings are properly designed for the soil at your building site — an exercise based on either soil testing and engineering calculations or rules of thumb and local knowledge — then such undisturbed soil should be able to support the weight of the building, with a healthy margin of safety.Engineers explain that good soils should be able to support 3,000 lbs. per square foot (20.9 psi). As it turns out, common extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation like Dow Styrofoam or Owens Corning Foamular has a compressive strength of 25 psi. That’s more than many soils that are routinely used to support a footing and a house. Moreover, it’s possible to order XPS or EPS with densities exceeding 25 psi. (Dow will be happy to sell you XPS with a compressive strength of 40, 60, or 100 psi; these products are likely to exceed the performance requirements needed for a residential project.)In short, the weight of a concrete footing plus a concrete wall plus a two-story house isn’t going to compress the foam insulation under… last_img read more
