Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said he expects to give some of his veteran players some good minutes for the first preseason game against the Shanghai Sharks on Sunday. D'Antoni wants the Rockets to develop some chemistry quickly but will use the final two preseason games as more of a dress rehearsal. "Give them a good run, see how the game goes," D'Antoni said Saturday. "I'm a believer we're there to get them better. They got to play with each other, we have a hard (regular season) schedule to start, so it's not like we can just kinda lull into it, we got to get them ready."

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and former NBA player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf met for over an hour in Berkeley, Calif., on Friday, a source told The Undefeated. Among the topics they spoke about was their protests, how they believe they've been misunderstood and the difference between Kaepernick having social media now versus Abdul-Rauf wishing he had it 20 years ago. Abdul-Rauf, 47, protested the national anthem while playing for the Denver Nuggets in 1996 and was suspended one game by the NBA.
