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:
Cleveland is finalizing a trade to acquire Los Angeles Clippers forward Sam Dekker, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 5, 2018
Former University of Wisconsin great, Sam Dekker, is headed back to the Midwest as he has been traded by the Los Angeles Clippers to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dekker entering the Central Division will give Badgers fans three chances to catch him in-person during the upcoming season.
The trade makes sense for Cleveland, why not see what kind of player Dekker is/can be as the franchise begins their post-LeBron James transition.
Tonight’s (off) topic:
With the latest Mission: Impossible movie getting rave reviews, I thought we should revisit the franchise. I definitely did not get the 2011 and 2015 editions, despite seeing the 2015 version in theaters (it was good!).
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
