Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.
Tonight’s (on) topic:
Hawks Pulled Out Of Trade With Bucks After Donte DiVincenzo Pick Leaked https://t.co/ggjtCQW8p8— RealGM (@RealGM) June 22, 2018
Even though the NBA and associated media outlets asked NBA reporters to not tweet out draft picks, however, the picks were still tweeted out. Unfortunately for the Milwaukee Bucks, one of those tweets cost them a chance to move back to the Atlanta Hawks’ 19th slot and accumulate an Atlanta draft pick.
Man that is some bad luck.
If I’m remembering the trade restrictions the Bucks were under for first round picks, they would have to have selected Kevin Hueter and then traded his rights to Atlanta for Donte DiVincenzo, thus having DDV on a rookie contract at the 19th slot instead of 17th. That seems pretty inconsequential, but not being able to acquire another draft pick from Atlanta is what stings here.
Tonight’s (off) topic:
Several top MLB players have been kept awake by the Pfister ghosts. https://t.co/BQ680MCPNE— Journal Sentinel (@journalsentinel) June 22, 2018
Halloween has come early this year.
I had no idea the Pfister Hotel was haunted, but I am not that surprised. I have stayed in a haunted hotel down in Chicago. The Congress Plaza Hotel is rumored to be actively haunted and when I stayed a weekend there, it was in a room that did not show up on the floor directory and could only be accessed by way of a little hallway that strayed from the main floor path. I thought I was primed to be haunted with that set-up, but that was a ghost free weekend.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
