The director of the Western being filmed was also wounded, and authorities are investigating what happened. Halyna Hutchins, cinematographer on the movie “Rust,” and director Joel Souza were shot Thursday on the rustic film set in the desert on the southern outskirts of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s officials said.

The Santa Cruz Warriors are an American professional basketball team in the NBA G League, based in Santa Cruz , California. The team's one-to-one NBA affiliate is the Golden State Warriors , and they play their home games at the Kaiser Permanente Arena.

The Golden State Warriors made a pair of roster moves today designed to fill out the roster for their G-League team, the Santa Cruz Warriors.

The waiving of Quindarry Weatherspoon happened just one day after the signing of Quinndary Weatherspoon, and we can safely predict that LJ Figueroa will spend a similarly short amount of time on the training camp roster. That’s because a G League roster has slots for four “affiliate players.” A team gets the first crack at anyone they cut during their training camp, so this is effectively calling “dibs” on these two players.

Weatherspoon was a second-round pick for the Spurs in 2019, and played very limited minutes with them over 31 games in the past two years. He’s a bit of a tweener as a 6’3” combo guard, but he has a 6’9” wingspan and scored efficiently in college and the G League. Weatherspoon’s age (he just turned 25) and lack of standout skills make him a non-prospect, but his well-rounded game and lack of glaring weaknesses makes him an ideal depth piece for a team like the Warriors, who simply need reliable bodies at guard.

Nikolas Cruz set to plead guilty to Parkland massacre

  Nikolas Cruz set to plead guilty to Parkland massacre FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Nikolas Cruz is scheduled to plead guilty to 17 counts of first-degree murder Wednesday for the 2018 shooting massacre at a Florida high school, as his attorneys turn their focus to saving him from a death sentence. Cruz, 23, will appear before Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer, who will ask him a lengthy list of questions to gauge his mental competency. Scherer will then ask him one by one how he pleads to each killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and to the 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder for those who were wounded.

LJ Figueroa went undrafted this year after teaming up with lottery pick Chris Duarte on an Oregon Ducks team that reached the Sweet Sixteen. Figueroa is a 6’6” forward with a nice outside shot (37% from deep in college) and a high steal rate. He played his first two college years for St. John’s and was a member of the Dallas Mavericks Summer League team.

Last year’s affiliate players in Santa Cruz were Elijah Pemberton, Dwayne Sutton, Kaleb Wesson, and NBA champion Axel Toupane, who won a title with the Milwaukee Bucks last year after singing with them in March. So at least one member of the 2020-21 Warriors won a ring.

Either player may be a candidate for an Exhibit 10 contract, which is a G League contract that can be converted into a two-way deal before the season. An Exhibit 10 deal often offers a bonus for players who stay with their G League club a certain amount of time, as an enticement to choose the G League over options like playing overseas. That may be a factor for the Spanish-speaking Figueroa, who has already played professionally in the Dominican Republic.

You can expect the Warriors to repeat this sign-and-waive process up to two more times for other players they’d like to see at the Kaiser Permanente Arena this year.

Brawl trial begins for Florida school massacre suspect .
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A slow slog of jury selection began Tuesday in the trial of the suspect in 2018's Florida high school massacre on charges that he attacked a jail guard nine months after the shooting. Prospective jurors were ushered into the courtroom in groups of 32 and asked basic questions about their knowledge of Nickolas Cruz, the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland that left 17 dead, whether they could put that aside and their availability to serve. Those who pass this initial screening will be brought back on Oct. 18 for further questioning.
