    So this is maybe the best story ever.
    So those Caruso pics are actually photoshopped, and because somebody posted them, Caruso ended up getting a notice from the league for a random drug test :D:D
    The legend continues

    Fuggers.



    Shams Charania‏Verified account@ShamsCharania
    Sources: Memphis wants three-time champion Andre Iguodala to report to training camp and is refusing right now to engage in buyout, which would prevent Iguodala from finishing a Hall of Fame career on his terms because this may be his final NBA season.

    Shams Charania‏Verified account@ShamsCharania
    Iguodala is VP of NBPA, one of league’s most respected and desires a contender at this stage. Young, rebuilding Grizzlies received a valuable 2024 1st from Golden State in Iguodala trade, and after Dwight Howard buyout, were expected to eventually have same talks with Iguodala.

    The Los Angeles Lakers have applied for a $1.75M disabled player exception from the NBA for their projected season-ending injury to DeMarcus Cousins, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

    There is no logical reason other than pettiness to prevent a veteran that might be in his last year to go where he wants especially with such a young roster. To force a player to play is counter productive. He isn't going to be the Griz's long-term solution anyway.

    He is a great asset as a mentor to young players.
    Grizz paying good money and can get some good return on that investment by having his presence in the locker room.

    Testing his character. Wouldn't surprise me if Iggy just retired..he's made more than $100M in NBA $, has other businesses and will probably land in someone's front office if he wants. Memphis has power here, but not all of it.

    I'm wondering if Pelinka has ever had any bad dealings with Memphis as an agent..could be partly why they won't free Iggy. They know Iggy is just going to call Pelinka and grab a LAL jersey. We know what AB would do. Perhaps they'll free Iggy if he shows up with a blonde mustache, or doesn't show and posts his fine letter from the team? Or maybe his 1st lesson w/Memphis' young players should be " why you shouldn't spend your career in Memphis "?

    Just watched Popovich/Kerr/Celtics lose to France.

    They could've used Caruso.
