• DeAndre Jordan - C - Dallas Mavericks

    DeAndre Jordan has reached an agreement on a one-year, $24.1 million deal with the Mavs.

    Those are the same terms he declined from the Clippers in order to hit the free agent market. It's a little surprising to see Jordan take just one year on this deal considering how badly the Mavs wanted him, but it's something we're likely to see more of this summer as players try to hit the market next summer when teams figure to have more money to throw around. The Mavs finally got their man and will have an athletic rim runner and protector who should help them dominate the glass. Jordan was near the very bottom of our free agent rankings but it was expected that he'd get far more term than this. It's a fairly low risk deal for the Mavs, who can take a close look at DJ for a season and decide his long-term fit from there — an expiring deal may also make for an attractive trade chip.

  • Derrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz

    Derrick Favors said he is looking to cut more weight during the offseason.

    “It’s something I’ll be focusing on again in the offseason,” Favors said. “I’ll be slimming down even more. Getting quicker so I’ll be able to guard on the perimeter and be able to guard in the pick and roll.” Favors dropped 26 pounds during heading into the 2018-19 season and just finished his second straight season with at least 76 games played. Favors has one more on contract with the Jazz and will likely pick up his player option this summer.

  • Kyle Korver - G/F - Utah Jazz

    Kyle Korver is uncertain if he will return for the 2019-20 season and has contemplated retirement.

    “There’s a real cost as you get older,” Korver said. “There’s all of what you need to put into the game, but there’s also a family cost. That’s probably where I’m at, is weighing that cost.” Korver has a player option for the 2019-20 season that becomes partially guaranteed after July 7. It would be his 17th NBA season if he chooses to return.

  • Jakob Poeltl - C - San Antonio Spurs

    Jakob Poeltl shot 4-for-6 from the field for eight points with nine boards, two assists and one block in 28 minutes for a 120-103 win over the Nuggets in Game 6 on Thursday.

    Poeltl was not able to shut down Nikola Jokic (43 points) but it didn't matter, as the Spurs shot 57.1 percent from the field to blow out the Nuggets. The Spurs will head to Denver for a winner-take-all affair in Game 7 on Saturday.

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris scored 14 points in Game 6 against the Spurs on Thursday night as the Nuggets fell 120-103.

    Harris scored a few points in this one but didn't do a whole lot else. The Nuggets will probably need him to have more of a visible imprint on the game to make major noise.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White shot 4-for-7 from the floor for 13 points with one rebound, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    White wasn't particularly effective on the stat sheet in Game 6, but his grit and solid defense helped the Spurs secure a win on their home floor. He limited his turnovers to just one in this game. White will need to stay efficient in a decisive Game 7 on Saturday in Denver.

  • Paul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap was almost a non-factor on Thursday night scoring just 12 points and adding four boards in heavy minutes.

    Millsap has to be better for this team to make any major noise deep in the playoffs. He just hasn't been back to his normal self for long stretches this year, so here's to hoping he can find form.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay shot 7-for-11 for 19 points with four boards, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    After being a non-factor for much of the series, Gay played extra efficient as a savvy veteran on Thursday night. He led the bench in scoring and helped set the tone to force a Game 7. Gay will need another game like this if the Spurs want any chance of surviving in Denver.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan shot 12-for-16 from the field for 25 points with seven assists and seven boards in 36 minutes to force a Game 7 against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge (26 points and 10 rebounds) took it to the Nuggets for their final home game of the opening round. For a team not making much noise in the regular season, all eyes will be on the Spurs and Nuggets Game 7 on Saturday. Never count out Pop and the Spurs.

  • Jamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray scored just 16 points (7-of-19 from the floor) on Thursday in the Game 6 loss to the Spurs.

    Murray was quiet in this one as the Nuggets tried to close it out. He did manage six assists but Nikola Jokic is going to need some help from his supporting cast to cement a date with Portland.

  • Nikola Jokic - C - Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic scored a career-high 43 points and approached a triple-double with 12 rebounds and nine assists in Thursday's Game 6 loss.

    It was a waste of a great performance from Jokic as the Nuggets couldn't close out the Spurs in Game 6. Home cookin' might be just what the doctor ordered.
