PORTLAND, Ore. -- The NBA draft is finally here and leading up to the 4 p.m. event, there are sure to be countless rumors about trades and draft developments. Rumors about the Portland Trail Blazers, the only team in the NBA with three first-round picks today, have been in short supply.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- With the NBA draft one day away, there has already been one big trade and rumors are circulating around the NBA including big stars like Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Kristaps Porzingis and others. On Tuesday, the Lakers traded DeAngelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, to the Brooklyn Nets, along with center Timofey Mosgov, for center Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in Thursday's draft.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Blazers could end the NBA Draft on Thursday with as many as three rookies on their roster. Or they could end up with none. With reports that the Blazers are hoping to shed salary, there could be more than one player exiting the team by the end of the night. If Portland does hold onto one or more of its picks, it will look to fill needs. The Blazers need defense, depth in the post and shooting. Portland should be able to find players who fill those needs in this 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".
