NBA Rumors for Thursday, December 1

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 10:00 a.m. ET. We update this page several times a day. Most of our updates throughout the day appear on our basketball blog. Click a bball story to read more, then click "BACK" to return here.

nba rumors Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said Wednesday that he has hired Allen & Co. to sell a minority stake in the team. “My goal in seeking a local minority partner is to further strengthen the team’s New York presence in order to expand upon our business and community relationships,” the 51-year-old Russian billionaire said. “I’m proud of the steps we’ve taken this year, including the opening of the world-class HSS Training Center and developing a new culture with GM Sean Marks and Head Coach Kenny Atkinson. I’m committed to the Nets and will remain the majority owner of the team.” NY Post

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, appalled at a missed call on the opening possession of Tuesday night's Los Angeles Clippers-Brooklyn Nets game, is publicly calling for the NBA office to discipline referee Ken Mauer. "Suspend him, demote him, make him ref a game in the D-League," Cuban said during his pregame workout Wednesday night. Cuban declined to mention Mauer by name, simply saying to watch the video that went viral of Nets shooting guard Bojan Bogdanovic's blatant double-dribble that went uncalled and see which referee is staring at the play.

nba rumors Kidd knows something about triple-doubles, ranking third all-time with 107, behind only Oscar Robertson, the all-time leader with 181, and Magic Johnson with 138. “I don’t think the guys get enough credit for the basketball IQ,” Kidd said of the new triple-double threats. “We talk about their talents of being able to jump and score. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Kidd: “You have to think the game if you’re going to have a triple-double. You can’t just roll out there and roll into 10 rebounds or 10 assists. “That’s thinking the game at a very high level. Right now you’ve got quite a few guys, Westbrook and LeBron. They’re all on a different page than most of the guys in the league.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Antetokounmpo also has a chance to join former Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the only player in NBA history to average 22-plus points, 8-plus rebounds, 5-plus assists and 2-plus blocks for an entire season. Abdul-Jabbar did it in two seasons with the Lakers, in 1975-’76 and 1978-’79. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

nba rumors The Sixers' game against the Kings at the Wells Fargo Center has been postponed because of moisture on the court. There was no immediate word on a rescheduled date for the game. Arena staff members tried using wet mops to fix the issue to no avail. CSN Philly

"The Philadelphia 76ers announced that tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings has been postponed due to an issue with the surface of the court and with player safety in mind," the team said in a statement. "Arena officials worked diligently to address the issue, but NBA officials determined that the court was not suitable for play." CSN Philly

Goran Dragic had double figures in assists just six times in 109 games with the Heat entering Monday, never more than 11. His high for this season was nine. Then, with Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson all nursing injuries, Dragic had the ball in his hands even more than usual. The result was his Heat career high 17 assists and one off his career best. This from a player who has averaged 4.7 assists during his nine year NBA career. Palm Beach Post Blog
