In some very un-Nolan-like behavior, he angrily threw a towel while walking to the bench after being subbed out of a game. Head coach Ergin Ataman confronted him just moments later, but Nolan appeared to ignore the coach completely, not even bothering to look at him. After the game, Ataman was still angry about the incident, and even suggested cutting Nolan from the team if he keeps up this behavior: “Nolan Smith should get his act together or we’ll split.”

Nolan Smith hit a buzzer beater to win the game for KK Cedevita in the ABA League (Adriatic League) semi-finals, sending them on to the finals!
Some bad news from the NBA Summer League today. Nolan Smith, who had planned on suiting up for the Boston Celtics this summer, suffered a calf injury early in a game against the Orlando Magic.
Smith was in the starting lineup for the Celtics’ first contest in the Orlando Summer League against the Orlando Magic, but suffered an injury to his right leg midway through the first quarter and left the game. He managed to score four points on 2-of-3 from the floor and added a steal in five minutes of action.
It was later revealed that Smith had suffered a tear below his calf, but his achilles tendon was not injured.
The injury should keep Smith sidelined for the remainder of Summer League action, but Yannis Koutroupis of Hoopsworld reported that Smith is still likely to receive an invitation to training camp with the Celtics and first-year head coach Brad Stevens.
Best wishes to Nolan! Hopefully everything works out for him when training camp rolls around!

“GET A DOG, ASS.”
A lot of kind words for Jon Scheyer from the Duke coaching staff and former players after it was officially announced that he is coming back to Duke as a special assistant.
