Matt Barnes started in place of Caron Butler, who missed Wednesday's game for personal reasons, and had 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers on 8-of-14 shooting in 40 minutes.

Barnes was arguably the best player on the court for the Clippers tonight and has become a must-own player, despite coming off the bench until this one. Barnes didn't have a steal or block tonight, but is still averaging 12.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting 52 percent from the floor. If he ever replaces Butler as the starter, look out.

Salah Mejri will reportedly undergo a minor procedure on his knee on Thursday.

A source of ESPN's Tim MacMahon described the surgery as "a minor clearing," so it sounds like Mejri will be undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. He will not be playing for Tunisia at the Olympics, but he's expected to make a full recovery by training camp.

Utah has reportedly made Trey Burke available via trade.

With George Hill, Dante Exum, Raul Neto and Shelvin Mack all on the roster, the Jazz are absolutely loaded at the point guard position, so it's not at all surprising to see this report. Utah could use an upgrade with regards to their backup small forward, so that's likely something they'll be looking to address should they unload some of their point guards. If the Pistons don't go after a big-name backup point guard, Burke could be an option for them.

The Hawks and Celtics will reportedly be the first two teams to have a face-to-face meeting with unrestricted free agent Dwight Howard.

Howard will reportedly meet with as many as five teams during free agency, but it's extremely unlikely he returns to Houston with Mike D'Antoni now running the show there. The Heat could also be in the mix to sign D-12 if they're unable to retain Hassan Whiteside. Aside from horrific free throw shooting, Howard should be able to put up quality statistics wherever he lands.

The Nets have reportedly emerged as the front runners to land Rajon Rondo during free agency.

The Nets are reportedly willing to offer Rondo a max-deal, although sources close to Rondo say that he's not overly interested in being Brooklyn's only major signing this offseason, so the Nets may need to bring in another star to get Rondo to sign his name on the dotted line. Brooklyn is said to also have interest in Jamal Crawford, Jeremy Lin, Brandon Jennings and Kent Bazemore, so perhaps if they can sign one of those guys, Rondo will be more inclined to sign. Rondo would have nice value as the Nets starting PG.

The Spurs interest in unrestricted free agent Mike Conley has reportedly been overstated.

Conley will still receive plenty of interest during free agency, but apparently the Spurs won't be one of those teams. The Mavs, Rockets and Nets will all be making a bid for Conley's services, while the Grizzlies will do everything they can to retain him. Conley will reportedly give Memphis the last word, but he wants to see the team upgrade the roster before committing to a long-term deal with the franchise that brought him into the league.

LeBron James will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

It's an easy decision for James considering the salary cap will jump up to $94 million next season. James recently said that he isn't planning on leaving Cleveland, but signing another two-year deal with an opt-out clause in 2017 would make the most sense since the cap will expand again.

The Heat are close to reaching a deal on an extension for head coach Erik Spoelstra.

His current contract ends after the 2016-17 season, so it makes sense for the Heat to lock him up now. Heat owner Micky Arison and president Pat Riley are big fans of Spoelstra and he's currently the second-longest active tenured coach in the NBA behind Gregg Popovich. The Heat had a 48-34 record last season and made it to the Eastern Conference Semifinals despite losing Chris Bosh (blood clots) for the season.

Tim Duncan has officially exercised his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season, but his future is still unclear.

Duncan is 40 years old and is seriously considering retirement, but this is still a good sign for the Spurs. The Spurs aren't going to give Duncan a timetable to make a decision, so it may be a while before we get a firm answer. If he does return for his 20th season in the NBA, he won't be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues after averaging just 8.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks last season.

According to ESPN, contract talks have stalled between Dwyane Wade and the Heat.

The report adds that Wade will consider outside offers, so it doesn't like it's a lock that the three-time champion will return to Miami. The Heat have nine free agents and $40 million to spend, but it's not clear if Wade is willing to take a discount so that Miami can pursue targets such as Kevin Durant and Hassan Whiteside. Things are going to be very interesting on July 1.

The Spurs have extended a qualifying offer to Boban Marjanovic.

This will make the big man a restricted free agent, giving the Spurs the ability to match any opposing offers in free agency. Boban showed some really nice upside in spurts last season, so this was a no-brainer for San Antonio. If Tim Duncan decides to retire, Boban could be looking at a larger role next season.

Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson said that the Nets aren't going to trade Brook Lopez.

"No. Absolutely not," Atkinson said. "Have not talked about it." Take this quote with a grain of salt because Atkinson called Thaddeus Young a building block two weeks ago and now he's an Indiana Pacer. Atkinson did say that he wants Lopez to be a leader for his team, but the reality is that Lopez is arguably the best trade chip Brooklyn has and it's clear that they aren't close to competing for a playoff spot.
