The Dallas Mavericks have completely ruled out the acquisition of Houston Rockets defender James Harden, according to insider Mark Stein on his Twitter page.
A Dallas source said there was “no chance” that Harden would be of any interest to the club. Earlier it became known that “Houston” began to negotiate the exchange of Harden with all interested clubs, including those that do not involve James.
We will remind, in the offseason in “Houston” there were changes. Longtime general manager Daryl Morey was replaced by inexperienced Rafael Stone, while debutant Steven Silas replaced Mike D’Anthony as head coach. Stars James Harden and Russell Westbrook have submitted an exchange request. Westbrook was traded to the Washington Wizards for John Wall, but this did not change Harden’s desire to be in another club. James doesn’t mind trading to the Philadelphia 76ers or any other NBA contender.
NBA champion in the Lakers beat a woman and ran into a lawsuit
Atlanta Hawks point guard Rajon Rondo is at risk of losing $ 1 million in a lawsuit filed by a battered woman, TMZ reported.
American Toktham Jorshari claims to have been beaten by Rondo and his girlfriend in a parking lot on July 29, 2020. The woman lives in the same house with the beloved basketball player. On that day, the Los Angeles Lakers’ NBA champion parked his $ 300,000 Rolls Royce SUV in a wheelchair-accessible area that day, she said, even though the car did not have a proper identification mark.
Jorshari accidentally blocked access to Rondo’s car door, which angered the player. “Bastard, why did you decide that you can park here?” – shouted Rondo at the woman.
At the time of the conflict with Rondo, the mask against the coronavirus flew off, which caused Jorshari to fear for his health. Rondo pushed her hard towards the car. She fell, after which she was hit in the head and upper body, and was also beaten by a basketball player. Jorshari claims that Rajon approved of his girlfriend’s aggression.
The victim claims that she received serious injuries, some of which led to her disability. The $ 1 million lawsuit notes that Jorshari has a video of the incident.
