While Colangelo didn't say who is in the running for the opening, it's clear that players who were previously being considered for the Select team could now be in the mix for Team USA. The Select team is scheduled to train with Team USA in Las Vegas from July 6 to 11, and will play against it leading up to five exhibition games that run through late July and finish in Spain. There is a dearth of big men, though, with the Griffin, Love, Bosh and Chandler the only members of the team's front court who are expected to be available. That could lead to improved chances for Sacramento's second-year center, DeMarcus Cousins, who averaged 18.1 points and 10.9 rebounds per game this season and was already being looked at for the Select team. "I'm really looking at the [Select] team we bring in to scrimmage our players, to a large degree, to be the makeup of who represents us in 2014 in Spain in the Worlds," Colangelo said. "And his name was on that list to talk about, consider etc. Certainly he would be a candidate.

No 50 year lease on Downtown Parking?

'Of the 11 parking firms still in the running, several have proposed the creation of a public parking authority, said a source familiar with the submissions but not authorized to speak publicly. The authority would borrow against future revenue, generating cash for the arena while giving the city more control over parking rates and other issues than the original plan. Such an authority could create a firewall protecting the city's general fund in case future revenue falls short.' I know some of this was included in another fanshot but I think this deserves to stand alone as a discussion.

The Week's Asinine Trade Thread, January 23.

Worst team: Sacramento Kings The Kings are tricky. They have a convoluted backcourt. Tyreke Evans took a step back last season and it remains to be seen if it was all injury-related or not. There's no telling how Jimmer Fredette will adjust to the pro level. Marcus Thornton will struggle for minutes despite his all-around ability. John Salmons is floating around. There were huge chemistry questions last season and the players struggled against coach Paul Westphal at times. If things don't improve, if DeMarcus Cousins doesn't mature, if Chuck Hayes can't protect the rim enough with his diminutive stature, things could get bad. And yet... Biggest surprise: Sacramento Kings There's so much firepower in that backcourt. Untagling it is complicated but they have everything. Shooting, athleticism, size, range, explosiveness, savvy, handle, everything. They have too much ability to not be effective in some ways. Cousins was a beast last season and even a small amount of maturity and development means he could be a near-All-Star (in the East, the West is too stacked). They have young talented bigs and Hayes who provides savvy and veteran knowledge. The pieces are there. They're going to be exciting, even if they're struggling with an identity.

Finally a look at other side of the lockout coin from SBnation

+

TZ takes a look at how the Charlotte market is one that truly needs a more equitable (my word) deal from the players to survive. What he doesn't mention is that Charlotte is in fact one of the several franchises that have recently been sold at a loss - and still lose money. I'd point out that for every owner that has been used to show owner greed or negligence, there is an equal number of markets that just can't compete or perhaps survive under the current system - and that great majority of owner lie in the middle somewhere in any case.

No Deal - for now

21

Read between the lines? The players want to save face,not be told when to work, where to work (like the rest of us have a choice) but it may be too late for a face-saving deal. That may have been last week.

Public meeting Thursday on Parking Revenue

18

An open public meeting tomorrow will discuss the parking revenue issue. Ed. Note: This is from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM at City Hall. If you can be there, please go and show your support. This battle is far from over and parking revenue is going to be one of the biggest hurdles to getting this thing done.

Although local news on STR is slim besides the Arena issue, there is some Can't Miss coverage on SB Nation. One article is linked but ther are many fine ones.

Dramatic New Draft rules may come in new CBA

14

An SBnation article that describes changes to the NBA draft that may come from the new CBA. Interesting if true. From Chris Sheridan Under another proposal, the teams with the eight worst records would get an additional first round pick, beginning with selection No. 22, and the teams with the eight best records would have no first-round picks but would select at the top of the second round (picks 31 through 38), then also would get the final eight picks of the second round.
