The NBA’s free-agent market has slowed to a trickle, as Nerlens Noel, Derrick Rose and JaMychal Green are among the only big names whose futures remain uncertain. Beyond that trio, few (if any) free agents will make a notable impact for fantasy basketball owners in 2017-18. Over the past few days, however, a handful of notable free agents found new homes, including Rajon Rondo heading to the New Orleans Pelicans on a one-year deal, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.
While the NBA’s big-name free agents have mostly found homes by this point in the offseason, a few signings are continuing to trickle in. The Utah Jazz, in particular, stayed busy over the past few days as they work to recalibrate their roster in the wake of Gordon Hayward’s departure. They came to terms with Thabo Sefolosha on a two-year, $10.5 million contract, per The Vertical’s Shams Charania.
In this episode of The NBA Podcast, Morten Jensen, Sarah Cilea and Bryan Toporek delve into the latest happenings with the New York Knicks, evaluate recent free-agent signings, and highlight some summer league standouts. Is Carmelo Anthony eventually headed to the Houston Rockets? What should they be willing to give up to land him? Which other teams might be involved in this four-team trade? How will the latest free-agent signings fit with their respective teams?
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".
