Deadlines and Commitments - Days of Future Past Edition

Finally (we think), the Nets roster is nearly set and almost everyone is in camp.

Markieff Morris officially signed his contract Wednesday morning while in sweats at HSS Training Center so he’s ready to go...

Other than Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, every one of the 17 Nets under contract has been seen on the practice courts at some point this summer.

Yuta Watanabe also made his first appearance Wednesday...

David Duke Jr., whose contract status is unsettled — two-way, standard deal or even an Exhibit 10 — has also been around. Meanwhile, Patty Mills who spent time at HSS earlier in the off-season, is in Australia on his Unearthed tour.

Labor Day is usually the unofficial deadline for players to get back in the gym, meet old and new teammates, old and new coaches, etc. There will be scrimmages as things head toward the unofficial opening of training camp with Media Day on September 26 and the official opening the next day.

It’s no surprise (or any concern) that KD and Kyrie haven’t been seen yet. They have more commitments than most. Durant was most recently seen in Turks and Caicos, the most recent stop on his peripatetic — and quite eventful — summer. He dropped by the TCI Sports Commission...
