The NBA has officially released the schedule for the 2017-18 season. For the first time in NBA history, no team will be going through the gauntlet of playing four games in five nights, and there will also be a 12 percent reduction in back-to-back sets, which will hopefully result in fewer injuries and random rest days around the league. The NBA also protected their nationally televised games by ensuring that no team will be on a back-to-back set or be going through a five games in seven nights scenario.

The Christmas Day schedule includes the 76ers at Knicks, Cavaliers at Warriors, Wizards at Celtics, Rockets at Thunder and Wolves at Lakers. The Knicks still get their national game despite how they are not expected to be very good, but at least we get The Process at noon EST to start this slate. As expected, we get a Finals rematch on Christmas for the third consecutive year, and we get a look at the three teams all making big moves this summer: Rockets, Thunder and Celtics.

NBA owners are expected to approve player-resting rules in September designed to cut back on teams benching healthy players for regular-season games, according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today. The rules are expected to be in place for the 2017-18 season and there will be consequences for teams that don't adhere to those rules. The NBA is doing all they can on their end with an earlier start in the season, no more four games in five nights, no more months with at least 18 games, cutting down on single-game road trips, and dropping the total number of back-to-backs. The new rules are going to be tough to enforce, so it's not likely going to be a stiff penalty for violators.

Adam Silver said that Seattle will be on the "short list" of cities he'll look at if/when the NBA "seriously" considers thinking about expansion. "I don’t want to put a precise timeline on it, but it’s inevitable at some point we’ll start looking at growth of franchises," said Silver. "That’s always been the case in this league, and Seattle will no doubt be on a short list of cities we’ll look at." In order to the Supersonics to get resurrected as an NBA franchise, they'll first need to find a place in Seattle to build a new arena, which comes with a litany of logistical issues. In other words, this isn't something that will happen anytime soon.

The NBA has moved the trade deadline for the 2017-18 season to February 8. The league will be moving the deadline to the second Thursday before the All-Star break, thus ending the awkwardness of players having to hear about trade rumors throughout All-Star weekend. This also could be seen as a good thing for fantasy hoops, as it gives players who get traded more time to get acclimated to their new surroundings.

Shawn Dawson will reportedly play for the Rockets' summer league team. Dawson tried to make his way onto an NBA squad via the summer league route last year but ended up getting waived during training camp. The Rockets already have a lot of depth in their backcourt, so Dawson will really need to impress during summer league to earn himself a camp invite.

Jaron Blossomgame    F  Player

 

 

With the penultimate pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Spurs selected Clemson F Jaron Blossomgame. This was San Antonio's second pick of the night, after taking Derrick at No. 29. Blossomgame is almost 24 years old, having played four years in college, so he comes to the Spurs as a relatively NBA-ready prospect despite nearly falling out of the draft. Unless injuries ravage the lineup, we're not expecting to see him in the rotation this season.

Jawun Evans    G  Player

 

 

The Clippers used the No. 39 pick, via Philadelphia, to select Oklahoma St. PG Jawun Evans on Thursday. L.A. traded for the rights to Evans, a 6'1" guard who averaged 19.0 points, 6.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 steals last season. He's just 6’1" and he posted a poor 33.5-inch max vertical at the combine, but he thrives in pick-and-roll sets and plays a controlled game. It’s possible he’s the latest undersized guy to get minutes, especially since the Clippers aren't overflowing with backcourt depth.

Jordan Bell    F  Player

 

 

The Warriors will acquire the 38th pick from the Bulls to select Jordan Bell. The Warriors really are light years ahead and once again they pick up a great player in the second round -- they did the same with Pat McCaw. Not many players helped themselves in the NCAA tournament like Jordan Bell. In the five games, Bell averaged 12.6 points, 13.2 boards, 3.0 blocks and 0.8 steals before falling to North Carolina in the Final Four. Bell is all motor and will have to continue to outwork his fellow power forwards. He’s only 6’9" with a 6’11" wingspan, but he has some bounce with his 38-inch max vert.
