After Jimmy Butler questioned his toughness, Marcus Smart fired back on Tuesday: "I ain't gotta talk about what I am about. I could show you, but I'm not going to tell you. So, like I said, it ain't hard to find me. And you heard him, he said, ‘I don't think Marcus Smart's about that life?' Last time I checked, if you're going to say somebody ain't about that life, you should know, right?"

The Pelicans' search for a D-League home is down to six: Baton Rouge, St. Tammany Parish, Shreveport (La.); Jackson (Miss.); Mobile (Ala.). "We are excited to the see the excitement which this process has generated among the six locations," owner Tom Benson said in a statement. "All of them have stepped forward with legitimate and sincere interest and are going to make a case via their proposals for why they would like to be the home of our NBA G League team in 2018-2019. The process is underway and we know that this will be a very significant addition for a city/parish near us as it will add global exposure and bring professional basketball to their town."
