Morning! Ready for some pickup? Let's talk about some trending topics.


Marcus Morris was dealt to Detroit earlier in the summer, which caught him off guard, and Marcus had a few choice words for his former team last month.

"Everybody knew how bad I wanted to play with my brother," Marcus Morris said. "Phoenix knew. For them to trade me without consent or telling or anything like that was kind of like a, I would say slap in the face, because of the contract I took from those guys and the money I took from them. That was kind of a slap in the face."

Now his twin brother, Markieff, wants out of Phoenix. Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer covered the situation.

"One thing for sure, I am not going to be there," Morris says. "If you want to put that out there, you can put that out. " he added. "I don't give a [freak]. I am not going to be there at all. That's just what it is."


Durant says that he "can go 100 percent" after the first day of USA Basketball minicamp, according to Ramona Shelburne. I'm happy to see one of the best players in the game back on the hardwood.


The 10th season of HBO's "Hard Knocks" premiered last night, featuring the Houston Texans. I haven't watched the episode yet, but always love getting an inside look at sports teams. We'll see how this season turns out.


Karl-Anthony Towns and Tyus Jones were both featured in a behind-the-scenes video at the annual rookie photo shoot.
