‘Play hard, play physical’: Zaza Pachulia isn’t changing his game for anyone
When you look back at the Warriors’ offseason, one big name pops up immediately: Zaza Pachulia.
Well, maybe it’s Kevin Durant considering he’s a former MVP playing the most efficient basketball of his career. But Pachulia has been a huge bargain after signing a one-year, $2.9 million deal last summer.
Lopez is averaging 20.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 blocks per game. He’s also added a 3-point shot to his offensive game this season, shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc on 5.3 attempts per game.
Teams might be scared away from Lopez since he has one year and $22.6 million left on his contract after this season. That’s a big payout, and Eagle says the Nets could be looking for a lottery pick and another first-round pick in return.
The Nets are in the driver’s seat. It appears they’ll be content to keep Lopez if they don’t like any of the offers in front of them.
He added, “He’s a tough out. He’s a big leaguer and there’s a reason he had so much success, regardless of what’s gone on lately.”
Sandoval will more than likely be a big leaguer again soon. Around the time he smacked that double, the Giants traded their starting third baseman and 2016 All-Star Eduardo Nunez to the Red Sox. With stud prospect Christian Arroyo on the disabled list with a broken hand, San Francisco could now opt to give another prospect a look and stick with Bruce Bochy’s plan to allow Sandoval 50 at-bats with Sacramento. Or, the Giants could call up their former star sooner.
Sandoval made reporters chuckle after the game when he got news of Plain Cheap Jerseys Nunez’s trade, initially uttering a Spanish expletive before adding that he didn’t worry and that “I just Vip Cheap Jerseys want to get better and better every day.”
