East Notes: Sixers, Kelly Oubre, Cavs, Koby Altman, Heat



  • The Cavs have yet to release further statement on president of basketball operations Koby Altman, arrested and charged with an OVI last weekend. Altman’s first court appearance took place Tuesday morning, as we relayed here.
  • Police body-cam footage from Altman’s arrest was first broadcast by WJW Fox 8 in Cleveland. It has since begun to make the rounds on social media.
  • We have details on center Tristan Thompson‘s contract as he makes his Cavs return. You can check out the full post here and all of our Cleveland coverage on our Cavs page.


Trade talks between the Heat and Trail Blazers centered on star guard Damian Lillard remain at a standstill with camp looming, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

“The concept is that (the Blazers) want the Heat to literally scrounge into every nook and cranny and produce everything they possibly can,” Windhorst said on The Hoop Collective podcast. “And the Heat don’t feel the need to do that, and they haven’t since June.”
