He got his first taste of that experience in Friday’s Summer League debut as the Wizards’ Justin Champagnie, his primary defender, “chirped” at him throughout the game, writes Lauren Williams of The Journal-Constitution. Risacher was able to overcome that distraction, putting up 18 points, five rebounds and two assists while shooting 7-of-16 from the floor and going 3-of-9 from three-point range. “I try to play the way we want me to play,” he said. “S ..read more

The Hawks are re-signing Vit Krejci on a four-year, $10MM contract, agents Alex Saratsis and Phillip Parun tell Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link).

That did not occur, but Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported at the time th ..read more

The Nets agreed to trade Mikal Bridges just two months after they hired Jordi Fernandez, but Brooklyn’s new head coach said he wasn’t caught off guard by that move. As Brian Lewis of The New York Post writes, moving Bridges was a scenario that had been discussed with Fernandez before he took the job. “We know that we wanted to do something sustainable and we wanted to win and build something very special. There were different avenues to do it, and this was a possible one,” Fernandez said. “We just couldn’t control if something (big came), what other teams would offer, so we’d just have to sit ..read more

The Hawks have signed wing Seth Lundy to a two-way contract, according to a team press release. The 46th overall pick in the 2023 draft after a four-year college career at Penn State, Lundy spent last season on a two-way contract with the Hawks. He appeared in nine games with Atlanta and 25 contests with the College Park Skyhawks. Atlanta extended a qualifying offer to Lundy in late June, the equivalent of another two-way deal. He may have simply accepted that offer rather than negotiating a new two-way deal. Lundy averaged just 5.8 minutes in his nine NBA appearances. In those 25 G League gam ..read more
