What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Tyrese Haliburton played w/ Anthony Edwards last summer and said both want to be in multiple Olympics. “Both of us take pride in being those young guys on the team and part of the future of the NBA moving forward. It’s really cool to be able to … share this moment.” – 7:30 PM

The Suns passing on Tyrese Haliburton is up there on the list of “what if’s?”
While there is speculation he later cleared up on how his draft night went, I spoke with him on Phoenix specifically.
He was open to it and didn’t hear from the Suns at all: arizonasports.com/story/3550290/…7:07 PM

Anthony Edwards said LeBron, Durant and Curry could win any game at the Olympics 3-on-5. So what’s all this ‘No. 1 option’ stuff for Ant on Team USA? He said it, but not even he really thinks it, ⁦@TheAthleticNBA⁩ nytimes.com/athletic/56230…8:59 AM

You’ve seen Anthony Edwards’ quote about being the primary option for Team USA. He also mentioned how he’s OK biding his time.
“They mentioned some guys you might not play some games, might not play that many minutes. I don’t mind. I’m playing alongside Hall of Famers.” – 6:20 PM

More on this storyline

Tim Bontemps: Anthony Edwards was asked about the possibility of playing in both the World Cup and Olympics in 2027 and ‘28. “What I did last year? Nah,” Edwards said. “But Olympics for sure.” -via Twitter @TimBontemps / July 7, 2024

“No, that’s incorrect,” Haliburton told Arizona Sports. “That’s definitely not the case. I was open to going anywhere that wasn’t those two teams. And any team that didn’t pick me, I don’t know.” Those two teams are the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers. -via Arizona’s Sports Page / July 8, 2024
Tyrese Haliburton said to Arizona Sports he had zero communication with the Suns during the pre-draft process. Phoenix traded for Chris Paul two days earlier, which obviously would have created a temporary logjam and kept Haliburton as a third guard for at least a short while. Would he have been open to learning from Paul while forming a long-term backcourt with Devin Booker? “For sure, no question,” Haliburton said. -via Arizona’s Sports Page / July 8, 2024
