Nick Stauskas Can Shoot, Hits 15 Straight 3's in 46 seconds

Sacramento Kings rookie, Nick Stauskas can definitely shoot the ball, after having a stellar college career at Michigan Wolverines, where he lead the Big-10 in 3 point shooting, at 44% last year.

If he gets some decent minutes next year, the 8th pick in this years draft could do quite a bit of damage from outside.

Watch his video below, of him shooting 3's from around the 3 point line, hitting an amazing 15 of 15 in only 46 seconds.

Doc Rivers Signs 5-Year Extension with LA Clippers

With the Los Angeles Clippers now under the control of businessman, Steve Ballmer, and moving on from the whole Donald Sterling fiasco, there was good news as head coach, Doc Rivers, has opted to stay with the Clippers for another 5 years.

Rivers had been vocal about the fact that he wouldn't want to stay with the Clippers if the Sterling family retained control of the franchise, after Donald Sterling was brought down for having been recorded making racist remarks.

Towards the end of last season, Adam Silver, the NBA Commissioner, banned Sterling from any future involvement in the NBA, and made moves to force the sale of the Clippers.

Sterling battled to keep the franchise, but eventually a sale did take place, with the Clippers now under Ballmer's ownership.

Ballmer's first big move has been to keep Rivers on-side, and has done so by offering him a 5-year contract worth a reported $50 million.

This new long-term partnership is set to keep Rivers in LA until the 2018-19 season, and this is what Ballmer had to say; "Not only is Doc one of the best coaches and executives in the game, but he continually embodies the hardcore, committed and resilient character and winning culture that the Clippers represent."

Rivers joined the Clippers in 2013, after having previously coached in Boston where he won an NBA Championship in 2008.

Last season, Rivers led the Clippers to their best record in franchise history at 57-25, and their second straight Pacific Division title.

Clippers fans, and everyone involved with the franchise are going to be hoping that Rivers can build on the past seasons success, and get the Clippers past the second round of the play-offs in this upcoming season.

It's Official - Kevin Love Traded to the Cavs and Andrew Wiggins Traded to the Timberwolves

Today is the day that a lot of Cleveland Cavaliers fans have been waiting for, as the Kevin Love trade can finally be made 100% official.

Love has now officially joined LeBron James on the new-look Cavs squad, and Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett have been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Philadelphia 76ers are also in on the dealings. The Timberwolves are getting Thaddeus Young in exchange for Alexey Shved, Luc Mbah a Moute and a 2015 first round pick, which the Cavaliers had owned.

The outline of the deal between the Cavaliers and the Timberwolves was agreed in principle weeks ago, but due to the fact that Cavs had signed the 2014 no. 1 draft pick, Wiggins, to a rookie contract, there had to be a 30 day wait before Wiggins could officially be traded.

Today marked the end of that 30 days, and so all of the wheels were set in motion to get this deal signed and completed.

While there has been a lot of talk coming out of the Cleveland camp in recent weeks, little had been heard from the Timberwolves, who are now committed to a rebuilding project in Minnesota.

Today the Timberwolves' released a newspaper advert that shows their new line-up of youngsters who are set to be the future of the franchise. The advert shows Wiggins, Bennet, Young and their high-flying daft pick, Zach LaVine.

 

Now that the whole Love saga is finally at an end, can the NBA season please just get underway?!

Team USA Blowout Dominican Republic 105-62

The USA defeated the Dominican Republic 105-62 last night, in their second warmup game before the FIBA World Cup in Spain later this month.

Derrick Rose was rested for this game after reports in the days before the game that he was suffering from pain in his knee.

''Just trying to protect myself, just knowing that this is a long, long schedule and this is the most basketball I'll be playing in two years,'' Rose said. ''I want to be out there, but at the same time my health is the No. 1 issue right now.''

Kyrie Irving started in Rose's place, and finished with 12 points on 5/5 shooting, to go with 5 assists in 16 minutes of play. The Americans had 6 players in double figures, with DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay leading the way with 13 points a piece.

Check out the game recap below, which includes a sick one handed alley-oop from Andre Drummond.

Shawn Marion Joins the Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been hard at work again, adding players to their roster for this up coming season.

Their newest signing is set to be Shawn Marion, who has reportedly agreed to sign a minimum contract with the Cavs in order to have one more shot at another NBA title.

Marion, who has spent the last 5 years with the Dallas Mavericks, winning a title with them in 2011, will suit up for a stacked Cleveland team next season. He will be joining the new-look Cavs, who feature LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love (although that isn't a signed deal yet), Mike Miller, James Jones and Anderson Varejao.

The Cavs deal with Marion is reportedly only worth $1.4 million, but Marion is happy to settle for less money if it means he can add more accolades to his collection.

Already an NBA Champion, and a 4-time NBA All-Star, Marion has 103 games worth of post-season experience under his belt - something which many players in the new Cavs line-up are missing. For all that Love is being hyped in terms of what his move to Cleveland will mean for the franchise, he is yet to play a single play-off game in his NBA career.

Marion has averaged 15.8 points and 9 rebounds per game during his career, which started out with the Phoenix Suns in 1999. Now, like a lot of us, he's wondering if this Cavaliers team can head straight to the top of the NBA pile and bring the first professional title to Cleveland since 1964.
