Thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers‘ 2018 offseason will be much more interesting. Not only did their deal at the trade deadline open up enough cap space for Los Angeles to pursue LeBron James and Paul George, but it also sent them a first round pick as a pretty bow to top off the package. Now the Lakers are capable of making a splash during both the 2018 NBA Draft and 2018 NBA free agency.
As we head into the final months of the 2017-18 NBA campaign, the Houston Rockets are looking like one of the Western Conference’s top contenders. Then again, that was to be expected after the union of James Harden and Chris Paul this past offseason. However, if this current campaign doesn’t end in a title, the Rockets could look to 2018 NBA free agency to put the finishing touches on of the league’s most exciting rosters.
The Cleveland Cavaliers face a handful of daunting tasks this offseason. From trying to retain one of the greatest players in league history to looking for ways to create some breathing space under the cap, this front office has its work cut it for itself between 2018 NBA free agency and the 2018 NBA Draft. However, what if the Cavaliers weren’t held back by luxury taxes or the salary cap? What if they had the money and charisma to acquire whichever 2018 free agents they had their eyes on?
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
