RIPLEY PROJECT EXPANDS “I say lucky because I went broke, then met my beautiful partner Maree, who after a few months of going out together got down on bended knee in the kitchen one night and gave me the key to her apartment,” Mr Dunn said.According to CoreLogic data the current median unit price in Teneriffe is $587,500, a big jump from Brisbane’s unit price of $410,000.Known for his Logie-award winning television show Agro’s Cartoon Connection with puppet Agro, Mr Dunn spent years with B105’s Morning Crew, and had a controversial exit with Brisbane station 4BC.“Now that Maree and I have got ourselves together we have the best of both worlds”, Mr Dunn said. “When we’re tired of the inner city we’ll head to the farm and vice versa, that’s our life plan” MORE REAL ESTATE NEWS: Jamie Dunn and his famous Agro puppet in Teneriffe, Brisbane.

Lakers waive Troy Daniels, creating open roster spot for possible move

first_img Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Related Articles Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers NEW ORLEANS — The Lakers’ first free agent signing of the summer and the last man off the bench has been waived.Troy Daniels, 28, is no longer on the Lakers’ roster as of Sunday, when the 3-point shooting specialist and the team came to an agreement that allowed the Lakers to get an open roster spot and Daniels to find a new team with more playing available playing time.Lakers coach Frank Vogel confirmed an ESPN report shortly before Sunday’s game in Smoothie King Center, where Daniels had already parted ways with the team. A minimum salary player, Daniels averaged four points and 11 minutes in 41 appearances this season. The Lakers characterized his departure as a casualty of dwindling minutes on a guard-heavy roster.Daniels had been a healthy scratch in five of the Lakers previous nine games as the team worked on shortening to a playoff rotation.

Multiple media outlets have also reported the Lakers are set to work out Dion Waiters, a guard who played for Miami this season and was waived by Memphis after a trade, on Monday as they search for more playmaking and scoring from their backcourt. Among notable free agents, shooting guard Allen Crabbe was also waived by Minnesota earlier in the week.Vogel said no signing was imminent for the Lakers, but they wanted to give Daniels a leg up on finding a landing spot if they did have to eventually make a move.“If we were to do something and cross that road at some point, and we had to use Troy’s roster spot, then Troy would be left out in the cold,” he said. “So we wanted to do the right thing by the player and also obviously give ourselves some flexibility if we need to make some type of move in the future.”Daniels tweeted about the move on Sunday evening after it was announced, wishing “my brothers on the squad” good luck.center_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years “Absolutely one of the hardest decisions of my life,” he said. “But it was best for ME..! I’ve been tested in my life before and I have came out the storm on my feet every time. What a pleasure it was to be apart of such a unbelievable organization of the @Lakers”.It’s the second big roster move the Lakers have made in a week, after signing Markieff Morris and waiving DeMarcus Cousins last Sunday. The Lakers have generally played the market conservatively this year since trading for Anthony Davis last summer — they notably did not make a move at the February trade deadline.ESPN reported that general manager Rob Pelinka was expected to take his time to use the roster spot. NBA teams are also now able to sign 10-day contracts.last_img read more
