With the books closed on the 2017 NBA draft, fantasy basketball owners now have a crop of 60-plus rookies to begin focusing on heading into the fall. While Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball will bolster the outlook for the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers, respectively, they aren’t the only two first-year players who should be on the radar of fantasy owners. Which prospects and veteran players emerged from the draft with a brighter fantasy outlook in 2017-18?
In this episode of The NBA Podcast, Morten Jensen, Bryan Toporek and special guests Mark Deeks and Mark Karantzoulis discuss Minnesota’s shocking Jimmy Butler acquisition and recap the 2017 NBA Draft. Did the Chicago Bulls get enough from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Jimmy Butler trade? How will Jimmy Buckets fit in Minnesota? What’s next for the Bulls? Who were the biggest winners and losers from the draft? Did the Los Angeles Lakers give up too quickly on D’Angelo Russell?
It didn’t take long for the NBA Draft to take a hard right turn Thursday night. Only a few minutes into the draft, ESPN’s Marc Stein reported the Minnesota Timberwolves were “close” to acquiring Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune quickly followed up with confirmation, reporting the Bulls would receive Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and Minnesota’s No. 7 overall pick in exchange for Butler and the No. 16 pick.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
