• Dave Joerger - Team - Sacramento Kings

    The Kings announced that they’ve extended GM Vlade Divac’s contract through 2022-23, Marc Stein reported that they have interest in Luke Walton should he become available, our own Aaron Bruski reports along with Dave Joerger that he’s on the ropes and Sam Amick reported that assistant GM Brandon Williams will not return next season.

    Things are moving pretty fast in Kings land. Vlade’s move to consolidate power is underway and getting rid of Williams is a good first step, as he was unpopular in the building and made moves to undermine Joerger throughout the season. Joerger didn’t do himself any favors with the way he handled playing time, though the bigger issues came in the two prior seasons and after the drama between sides there is an air of house-cleaning right now. Joerger had a nice coaching season for the most part and is one of the better young coaches in the game, personality quirks aside, and the Kings are playing with fire here upsetting a core that blasted away expectations. As a fun aside, expect plenty of Mark Jackson/Steve Kerr comparisons to come out of Sacramento in the coming days.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala (left leg) will not play in Monday's Game 4 against the Blazers.

    The Warriors will look to close out the series in Portland without Iguodala, Kevin Durant, and DeMarcus Cousins. The Finals doesn't start for ten more days, so Iggy should be able to get healthy by then.

  • D.J. Wilson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    D.J. Wilson (left ankle soreness) is questionable for Game 4 against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    If Wilson is able to return, he won't be more than bench depth.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    According to Chris Haynes, Dwight Powell will turn down his $10.2 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    At just 27 years old, Powell is likely looking to get a longer deal with more guaranteed money. However, there are a litany of fours and fives that could be on the market this summer, making this an interesting decision for Powell. With Kristaps Porzingis returning from injury, Powell may seek more minutes elsewhere. A return to Dallas is still certainly in the cards for him.

  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) and Patrick McCaw (personal) remain out for Game 4 against the Bucks.

    Anunoby started doing light work about a week ago and could be close to a return for Game 5 or if the series goes any further. It is unclear why McCaw has missed time, but we wish him the best. He isn't in line for rotation minutes in this series anyways, especially with how well Norman Powell is playing.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala (left calf tightness) is listed as questionable for Game 4 on Monday.

    Iggy left in the first quarter of Game 3 before returning. He only logged 18 minutes overall in the game. If he can't go, Shaun Livingston and Jordan Bell would take up the bulk of his minutes, while Jonas Jerebko and Alfonzo McKinnie could see a few extra as well.

  • Malcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Mike Budenholzer is inclined to stick with the current starting lineup for Game 4.

    Bud mentioned he likes Malcolm Brogdon and George Hill off the bench, and he has every reason to do so. Even if there were going to be lineup changes, we wouldn't hear about it until right before tip-off, but don't expect any.

  • James Ennis III - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis III has declined his $1.8 million player option and is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

    Ennis played a crucial role for the Sixers down the stretch and will likely look to secure a multi-year deal after showing his worth.

  • Tim Connelly - Team - Denver Nuggets

    Tim Connelly will remain with the Nuggets as their President of Basketball Operations.

    The Wizards were trying to pry Connelly away from the Nuggets after meeting on Friday, but it seems that Connelly likes where he is and wants no part of a decimated Wizards' team.

  • Ryan Saunders - Team - Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Timberwolves and Ryan Saunders have agreed on a multi-year deal making Saunders the team’s head coach.

    Saunders has been an assistant with the Timberwolves since 2014 and was named the interim head coach for Tom Thibodeau after his firing last season. Saunders had a record of 17-25 as head coach, but has been quickly building a reputation of being a player’s coach.

  • Gianluca Pascucci - Team - Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Timberwolves have hired Gianluca Pascucci to be their assistant GM.

    Pascucci was the director of global scouting for the Nets and had developed a relationship with Timberwolves’ president Gersson Rosas while they were in Houston.
