Their draft day experiences were completely different, though. Kuzma, picked at No. 27 by the Los Angeles Lakers, enjoyed the moment with 60 or so people in a simple white t-shirt and ripped black jeans at a family friend's home in Burton. Then Morris, taken 51st by the Denver Nuggets, showed up early in a black suit with gold trimmings and spiked gold shoes among at least 100 supporters in Flushing's more upscale, Signature Chophouse.
FLUSHING, MI - Monte Morris' lifelong dream is now fulfilled. "Man-Man" is headed to the NBA. With the No. 51 in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Denver Nuggets selected the record-setting Iowa State floor general in the second-round Thursday night. He celebrated the occasion among family and friends at private a draft party in The Grande Ball room of Flushing's Signature Chop House. "I'm blessed just to be in this position," Morris said. "I worked out for about two hours this morning."
During Thursday's NBA Draft, the Flint native was selected by the Brooklyn Nets with the No. 27 overall, but immediately had his rights traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. Kuzma, 21, declared for the draft after a strong junior campaign at the University of Utah. The 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward earned first-team All-Pac 12 honors after averaging a team-high 16.4 points and 9.3 boards per game for the Utes.
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".
