Doubt Draymond Green would re-sign?

ESPN senior writer Ramona Shelburne: "There wasn't really a doubt. There was more like a pause. ... The first conversation, there was a gap in what he wanted versus what they were offering. But essentially he was just watching everyone else get obscene amounts of money."

'Cavs could not replace Iman Shumpert'

ESPN's Brian Windhorst: "Had he left in free agency, they would not have the mechanism to D up a wing defensive player and shoot 3's alongside LeBron James."


What should D.J. do in free agency?

Max Kellerman suggests DeAndre Jordan join the Lakers and cash in next season when Kobe Bryant is off the books. Marcellus Wiley doesn't buy that advice: "Let me ask you if going to a worse team for less money with questionable ownership is a better move or not."

Nothing is going to be imminent with these minimum salary guys. Obviously no one rushes to verbally agree to those terms until they have to.

If you think the players are getting paid in NBA free agency, just think what the owners are raking in. They don't spend unless they make $$

Doc tried hard to sign Kendrick Perkins last season. He chose Cleveland but played sparingly. Doc is still interested.

If you're wondering how Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford will work together off the bench, you're not alone.
