  • Report: Celtics wanted Noel & LAL pick for #3
    The Celtics "supposedly wanted" Nerlens Noel and Philadelphia's future first-round pick from the Lakers in exchange for the 2016 No. 3 pick, a source told Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times.

    Advice: That is quite the hefty price tag and the 76ers were right to turn it down. The Lakers' pick is going to be top-three protected again next year, so it likely would've been another high lottery pick. With the 76ers saying Ben Simmons is going to play power forward, they likely have to move Noel or Jahlil Okafor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Woj: BOS, LAC & MIA could get KD meetings
    Kevin Durant’s representatives "are working to solidify invitations" with the Celtics, Warriors, Clippers, Heat, Spurs and Thunder, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: According to the report, the meetings are expected to take place in New York, but teams are still awaiting on the specific location. Wojnarowski adds the Thunder are still the frontrunners for a one-plus-one-year deal to allow Durant to hit free agency for the big salary cap rise in 2017. Wojnarowski also said the Warriors "have Durant's attention." Lastly, the report adds Durant is expected to take a tour to the Far East on July 9 and should have a decision before then. OK, everybody got that? Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Warriors linked with Nicolas Batum
    If the Warriors can't sign Kevin Durant, they are expected to look at Nicolas Batum in free agency.

    Advice: Things aren't looking good for Harrison Barnes' future in Golden State. The Thunder are likely still the favorites to re-sign Durant, while Batum is likely going to receive several max offers and Charlotte will do everything in their power to keep him. For what it's worth, Evan Turner's name has also popped up, but he would be a questionable fit in Golden State since he's not much of a shooter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 am
  • Hennigan defends Ibaka trade
    Orlando GM Rob Hennigan defended the Magic's trade for Serge Ibaka.

    Advice: "We feel like we have a roster that is really well-balanced now, and it was important for us to balance it in a way that addressed a very glaring need and a very important need in today’s NBA," Hennigan said. "Serge’s ability to protect the basket, his ability to defend in a very versatile way, we feel, is really going to help fortify a major weakness for us." The Magic gave up a lot to acquire Ibaka and the 27-year-old big man can walk in free agency next summer, so re-signing him will likely be their top priority. Ibaka could be a nice fit next to Nikola Vucevic, but this trade could hurt Aaron Gordon's value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:42 am
  • Nets not sure on Jarrett Jack
    The Nets are unsure if they will pick up Jarrett Jack's (knee) team option.

    Advice: The Nets have until June 30 to make the call. If they don't pick it up, they would only owe Jack his $500K guarantee. He could also be an interesting trade chip. The Nets picked up Isaiah Whitehead, so he would have a huge opportunity in front of him sans Jack. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:40 pm
