Happy birthday, America! Here's to hoping everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend with family and friends.
In order to supply our readers with their much needed NBA D-League fix, let's take a look at some links from around the web with some minor league flavor.
First off, our buddy Chris Reichert from Upside & Motor takes a look at how some of the D-League's more notable players are doing at Orlando Summer League so far.
Next up, according to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Texas Legends' hiring of Nick Van Exel as head coach is now imminent. He'll replace Eduardo Najera, who recently joined the affiliated Mavericks' scouting department.
With the reveal of the "Raptors 905" team earlier this week, Holly MacKenzie recently spoke with Toronto Raptors' General Manager Masai Ujiri about the importance of having a new D-League affiliate to call the NBA club's own.
Lastly, in case you missed it, we chatted with recently crowned NBA champion James Michael McAdoo about the progress he made in the D-League, as well as what he hopes to do in Summer League next week and beyond.
Happy reading! Be safe this weekend.
