Abracadabra! The Memphis Grizzlies did its best Houdini imitation and turned turning no picks in the 2017 NBA Draft into two players, plus a late free agent addition. The Grizzlies, with a total of six selections in their pocket for 2018 and 2019, exchanged two of them for picks in last night's talent grab. The Grizz traded a future second rounder with Orlando for Ivan Rabb out of California, the 35th overall pick.
After entering the 2017 NBA Draft without a single pick, the Memphis Grizzlies work a deal with Orlando to grab a player early in the second round. The player the team selected is Ivan Rabb from the University of California. Rabb is a strong rebounder who is tough in the paint, like many players coached by Cuonzo Martin at California. Rabb averaged more than 10 rebounds a game for the Golden Bears and has nice touch around the basket.
It's been three years since Former University of Memphis Basketball star Jeremy Hunt came up with the idea of a Tiger Alumni Game. Now, Hunt is expanding that dream to include some old rivals, like Tennessee. Hunt is busy selling tickets for the 3rd annual charity contest. He said the popularity of seeing former Tigers go at it on the basketball court has always been a good draw, but he wants to sweeten the pot. And what better way to do that than add a heated rival to the roster?
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".
