While many of you were asleep last night, Brandon Jennings was awake.
The point guard had some thoughts about the Warriors, so he sent out the following three tweets at about 1:30am PT:

Jennings signed a 1-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks last summer, but was waived in late February.
He signed with the Wizards, and averaged 3.5 points and 4.7 assists in 16.3 minutes over 23 games with Washington.
The 27-year old shot a dismal 27 percent from the field and just over 21 percent from deep.

When rumors around Andrew Bogut's potential return to the Warriors began to circulate, many people were caught entirely off guard.
But it wasn't just fans and analysts who were surprised the 2005 No. 1 overall pick would be returning to help his former team capture another title.
Bogut's agent apparently had no idea the veteran center and the Warriors had been discussing a return to the Bay Area.
“Funny enough, my agent didn’t even know,” Bogut told The Athletic's Ethan Strauss. “I told my agent, ‘Hey I’m talking to the Warriors,’ and he was like, ‘What the f***? Do they know I’m your agent? Why don’t they call me?’”
The 34-year-old last played for the Warriors during the 2015-16 season and has been out of the NBA since January of 2018.

In the four games since his return to the two-time defending champions, Bogut is averaging 5.3 points and 6.2 rebounds while looking slimmer and more athletic, something he attributes to drinking more beer and having a less rigorous schedule while being back home in Australia.
The unexpected reunion has been a success so far. Perhaps when Bogut officially hangs up his sneakers he can start a second career as an agent.
It's worked out so far.
Blazers starting center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a horrible, horrible injury during Monday night's game against the Nets.
If you watched it live or have watched a replay, you know how brutal it was. If you haven't watched the video, DON'T.
Just think Gordon Hayward, Kevin Ware, Paul George and Shaun Livingston.
It was that bad.
Shortly after midnight, the Blazers announced that Nurkic suffered a compound fractures to his left tibia and fibula, and that there is no timetable for his return.
Nurkic was having a monster game at the time of the injury, dropping in 32 points and grabbing 16 rebounds, and the Blazers beat the Nets in double overtime, but neither matters at this point.
Losing Nurkic is another huge blow for the Blazers, who currently sit in fourth place in the Western Conference. They are already playing without shooting guard CJ McCollum, who strained his popliteus muscle in his left knee.
Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins was among the current and former players to send their thoughts and prayers to Nurkic.
