Adam Silver Doesn't Expect J.R. Smith To Be Fined For Telling Reporter He Wants A Trade

Less than a day removed from claiming he wants to remain in Cleveland, Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith could have found himself in hot water with the NBA for telling the media he’s hoping to get traded from the team.The Cavs are going through a turbulent period in the wake of their losing LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers. Tyronn Lue has lost his job, interim head coach Larry Drew has issues taking over full time and several senior players are disgruntled.Smith has since been informed that he won’t be guaranteed playing time as the team looks to head in a new direction and, on Wednesday, it was reported that he was keen on spending some time away.RELATED: J.R. SMITH HITS OUT AT REPORT CLAIMING HE WANTS TO LEAVE CAVSThe 33-year-old rubbished the report via Twitter. On Thursday, however, a reporter asked him whether he’s hoping to be traded and he said that he is.”Yeah,” Smith said, per ESPN. “They know. They don’t want me here, so they obviously know.”According to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the league considered fining the player and had looked into whether or not his comments constitute an offence.NBA players are prohibited from making public trade requests, so it was believed that Smith could have been fined for his statement.Eric Bledsoe was hit with a $10,000 fine for a tweet he posted that read: “I don’t wanna be here” last year and it was thought that Smith could face a similar penalty, although one could argue that the player was baited into saying what he said by the reporter.If the reporter was aware of the stipulation at the time, then knowingly asking a player a question that could get him in trouble with the league was in poor taste – considering Smith hardly needs help when it comes to falling afoul of the NBA.NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, however, has said that he doesn’t foresee the player getting fined.”It’s a last resort to be sanctioning or disciplining a player,” he told a group of reporters in Cleveland on Thursday.”I think in the first instance those are team matters, and, even if it came to a situation where there is a technical rules violation we usually look to the team in the first instance to see how they want to handle it. Talking to Koby (Altman) earlier, it is something that he and his interim coach are addressing directly.”My hunch is that he’ll find a way to deal with it and it won’t be necessary for the league office to get involved.”Meanwhile, Smith could prove difficult to trade despite his manageable salary of $14.7 million per season. And he will still have another term left on his deal after the current one is up.NEXT: DERRICK ROSE GETS EMOTIONAL AFTER SCORING CAREER-HIGH 50 POINTS

中国防长见美“飞虎队”老兵 为元首会晤铺垫?
Sunday November 11, 2018

撰文 | 李岩 前不久中美两国防长在新加坡会晤时,马蒂斯再次邀请魏凤和访美。11月8日,中国防长魏凤和率团离京,对美国进行正式访问并出席第二轮中美外交安全对话。 政知圈(微信ID:wepolitics)注意到,近半年内,中美两国防长进行了三次会面。如此高的频率,在中美之间并不多见。有专家表示,这充分说明中美双方虽然有分歧,但是战略沟通是必要的,而且这种认识不是某一方剃头挑子一头热,是双方的共识。 更有趣的是,此次魏凤和还见到一位曾为中国战斗的“老朋友”。 魏凤和会见美国老兵 官方消息显示,正在美国访问的魏凤和10日在华盛顿会见曾赴华参加第二次世界大战的“飞虎队”老兵及亲属。出席会见的美方代表包括“驼峰”航线老兵杰·温雅德、“飞虎队”指挥官陈纳德外孙女尼尔·凯乐威等人。 会见中,魏凤和称赞“飞虎队”老兵为捍卫世界和平、保卫国家和亲人做出重大牺牲。他说中国人民永远不会忘记老战友老朋友,永远不会忘记那些曾经帮助过我们的朋友,永远不会忘记曾经为支援中国抗日战争流血牺牲的英雄,永远不会忘记与我们并肩抗击法西斯的战友。两国人民的友谊永远不会为时间和地域所阻断。 政知圈(微信ID:wepolitics)注意到,会见在中国驻美使馆举行。央视的镜头中,魏凤和与杰·温雅德相邻而坐,背景是极具中国特色的竹林屏风。 “中国人民和美国人民一样都爱好和平,珍惜和平。正因为经历过战争,才深知战争带来的苦难。中方愿与美方一道,加强互利合作,让两国人民都过上祥和幸福的生活。”魏凤和说。 两位“老朋友”多次参加会见 有意思的是,政知圈注意到,这并非是我国军方高层第一次会见美国二战老兵。前文之所以称魏凤和会见的美国老兵是中国的“老朋友”,不光是因其曾在中国并肩战斗,在中国军方高层此前与美国老兵的两次会见中,杰·温雅德、尼尔·凯乐威同样在列。 2012年,时任中国国防部长的梁光烈访美,在华盛顿会见“飞虎队”老兵与亲属,杰·温雅德和尼尔·凯乐威作为代表出席。为了表示敬重,梁光烈当时向温雅德行了一个军礼,“YES,Sir!”后者马上回礼。 2015年,时任中央军委副主席的范长龙访美,在华盛顿同样会见了杰·温雅德和尼尔·凯乐威。 提起“飞虎队”“驼峰航线”,在中国确实可谓无人不知。 “驼峰”航线是二战期间盟国为向中国输送战略物资而开辟的“空中生命线”,为保障对日作战的军备物资作出了重要贡献。由于要翻越喜马拉山脉南麓的一个形似骆驼背脊的山口,它还是世界战争空运史上持续时间最长、条件最艰苦、付出代价最惨重的一条空运线。563架美国飞机在执行任务时坠毁或失踪,中美两国共牺牲飞行人员1500余人。温雅德曾驾驶C-46运输机87次飞越当时最艰险的航线-驼峰航线,为中国抗日战场运送战略补给。当时,他只是一个二十来岁的小伙子,而今他已是95岁高龄的白发老人。 回忆起那段浴血奋战的岁月,温雅德称和他的队友相比,他是幸运的。他回忆称,他曾参与的一次夜间运送汽油的任务中,美军当晚损失了9架飞机和42位机组人员、乘客。会见中温雅德表示,如果中方能够找到战友们的遗骸,这对他们的家人来说将是莫大的安慰。魏凤和表示,中方一定会尽全力寻找失踪美军飞行员的遗骸。 提到“飞虎队”创始人陈纳德的孙女,凯乐威与中国的渊源更为深厚。 中日战争全面爆发后,陈纳德在昆明市郊组建航校,以美军标准训练中国空军。从此,插翅飞虎队徽和鲨鱼头型战机名扬天下,“飞虎队”的绰号也家喻户晓。史料显示,1941年10月至1945年8月,“飞虎队”击毁日机2600多架,击毙日军66000多人,建立了辉煌战功。不过,这一成果的实现也让“飞虎队”付出了损失500架飞机的代价。 陈纳德的英雄事迹不但让他广为中国人民熟知,还收获了美好的爱情。1947年,陈纳德与北京姑娘陈香梅完婚。1963年,陈香梅接受时任总统肯尼迪的委任,成为第一位进入白宫工作的华裔。自此,她先后在八届美国政府中担任顾问,为中美交流起到过重要作用。

特鲁多:加拿大情报人员已听到沙特记者被害录音
Monday November 12, 2018

加拿大总理特鲁多(图:路透社) 海外网11月12日电沙特记者遇害事件至今未有突破性进展,但仍持续发酵。当地时间12日,加拿大总理特鲁多表示,加拿大情报人员已经听到了卡舒吉被害过程的录音。 据路透社消息,特鲁多访问巴黎期间被问及“加拿大情报人员是否已经听到了录音”,他则回应“是的”,不过,他也强调,自己尚未听到录音。 特鲁多在新闻发布会上说,“加拿大情报机构一直在与土耳其情报部门密切合作,且已经充分了解到土耳其分享的内容。” 特鲁多还透露,他曾在巴黎与埃尔多安讨论过该议题,并强调加拿大将与盟友讨论下一步将采取什么措施。 沙特记者卡舒吉10月2日进入沙特驻伊斯坦布尔领事馆后被杀害,其遗体至今未被发现。 土耳其总统埃尔多安10日透露,土耳其已经把卡舒吉被害的录音传给沙特、美国、德国、法国和英国五国,但尚未有国家承认听过这段录音。 不过,法国外交部长让·伊夫·勒德里安说,巴黎并没有收到与卡舒吉遇害事件有关的录音。这显然与埃尔多安的言论相矛盾。 来源:海外网 Source: https://ottawazine.com/feed/
