NBA trade season has kicked back into high gear approaching into the 2017 NBA Draft, and Kristaps Porzingis trade rumors escalated what was one of the most hectic days for league-wide rumors and speculation in recent memory. As The Vertical‘s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday, the New York Knicks were weighing the possibility of trading their seven-foot franchise cornerstone, which prompted a flurry of activity from around the league.
Trade season leading up to the 2017 NBA Draft has officially gotten weird. As if the Boston Celtics trading down from the No. 1 pick and the Los Angeles Lakers sending poor D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for salary cap space weren’t bizarre enough, the Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks decided to get in on the action with an unexpected move of their own. As first reported by The Undefeated‘s Marc J. Spears, the Hawks have agreed to send Dwight Howard to the Hornets.
The Boston Celtics opened up NBA trade season by sending the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft to the Philadelphia 76ers, but the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets opened the floodgates Tuesday afternoon with a deal few saw coming. As first reported by The Vertical‘s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers have agreed to send point guard D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Nets in exchange for Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick in Thursday’s draft.
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".
