Friday evening open thread: 2013 D-League Draft, Clippers vs. Kings at 7 p.m.

New, comments

There are 13 games on tonight as well as the 2013 D-League Draft. Join us.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

We haven't done random open threads at GSoM for a while, but I'm doing one tonight mainly because I'll be keeping track of the 2013 D-League Draft and I'm sure more than one of us will be keeping track of the hated L.A. Clippers taking on the Sacramento Kings, who will be in Oracle Arena tomorrow night for 2013 GSoM Night.

Then of course there are 12 other NBA games on ESPN tonight as well.

Without further ado, some links.

2013 NBA D-League Draft

GSoM will be having some coverage of the Santa Cruz Warriors on the site once again this year and I'll kick that off in earnest by following their draft.

I've stuck a storystream for the Santa Cruz draft in our Santa Cruz Warriors section - where I've placed a number of Warriors-related links from around SBN - but you can follow the stream itself by clicking on the link below:

For actual D-League expertise, I strongly recommend checking out SB Nation's Ridiculous Upside (a resource that I rely upon pretty heavily for D-League coverage):

13 NBA games tonight: ESPN debut

There are 13 games tonight and ESPN will kick off its coverage of the 2013-14 NBA season tonight with a double header and a revamped pre-game show "roster":

Miami at Brooklyn at 5 p.m.

San Antonio at L.A. at 7:30 p.m.

The Clippers and Kings will be facing off against one another tomorrow and Tom Ziller and I have exchanged a few emails for a Q&A, which I'll post tomorrow. But for those who want to get a head start on scouting the Kings, that game will be on League Pass at 7 p.m.

Random Warriors chatter

We've had a couple of community posts that might be of interest to you as well:

Should the Warriors sign a backup point guard? (Related: Toronto is tanking, will move point guards...maybe?)

How big a problem were fouls against the Clippers?

Also, there's this...

That's all for me - feel free to jump in the comments to talk about any of the above if it suits you.
