Al Horford scored 28 points on 12-of-20 shooting Monday to go along with 10 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals.

Horford hasn't had a game like this in quite a while. It was first game with 20-plus points since Jan. 1 and only the second time all month he's blocked more than one shot in a single game. Granted, all of this came against a Minnesota team with two-thirds of its starting frontcourt on the injured list, but it was an impressive afternoon for Horford nonetheless.

Austin Rivers is opting in on his $12 million contract with Clippers for next season.

Besides some injuries, Rivers had a strong season last year with 15.1 points per game over 33.7 minutes per outing. Rivers is still just 25 years old and should have another chance to get a long-term deal next summer. Rivers is likely going to have more competition for minutes this season with the Clippers fully expected to take a guard at either 12 or 13.

The Lakers have reached out to the Spurs to express interest in Kawhi Leonard, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Earlier today, ESPN reported that the Spurs are willing to listen to offers, but Shams adds that no offers have been discussed between the Spurs and Lakers just yet. The Leonard storyline will be a major issue to keep an eye on during the draft, but the Spurs obviously won't make a hasty decision.

The Wizards are actively exploring their trade options with Marcin Gortat, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Stein adds that the Wizards are resistant to attaching the No. 15 pick tonight to dump Gortat's contract. It's also an expiring deal on Gortat, so it shouldn't be too tough to unload it at some point in the next eight months. The Wizards will likely be in the market for a big man regardless, and chances are Gortat's fantasy value will decrease with a deal.

Dwight Howard and the Nets will negotiate a buyout, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

This comes as a surprise one day after the Nets reportedly acquired Howard in a trade for Timofey Mozgov. If a buyout is reached, Howard will enter free agency next month, but the NBA won't be announcing this trade officially until next month. The former Defensive Player of the Year continues to be passed around the NBA, and it's hard to believe the Nets basically acquired him for his contract. It will be interesting to see what kind of market Howard gets after a very strong year in Charlotte. This news is obviously fantastic news for Jarrett Allen.

The Sixers have traded the 39th pick in the draft to the Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In return, the Sixers get L.A.'s second-round pick in 2019 (via Bulls) and cash. Philly is overloaded with picks, having held Nos. 10, 26, 38, 39, 56 and 60 going into Thursday's draft, and it wouldn't be surprising to see a few more of their picks involved in trades over the next 24 hours.

Dewayne Dedmon has picked up his $7.2 million player option for the 2018-19 season, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania.

Dedmon reached the threshold for his $900k incentives to kick in next season, and may have calculated that he wouldn't get as much annually with a new deal. This also sets him up for a potential long-term contract next summer when he's an unrestricted free agent at age 30. His presence in Atlanta isn't great news for John Collins' fantasy value, but we still expect Collins to take a step forward in his sophomore campaign.

The Cavaliers are not actively shopping Kevin Love heading into Thursday's NBA Draft, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com said earlier this week that the Cavs haven't been given any hints on LeBron James staying or leaving, so obviously that is a mega factor in Love's future. Considering the Cavs traded their 2019 pick to the Hawks with a top-10 protection in the next two years, it sure does make sense to tank it up. If Love does stay in Cleveland for a while, he could be a fantasy force again.

The Knicks are exploring the option of trading up to No. 4, according to ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

ESPN's Ian Begley adds that the Knicks had an in-person meeting on Wednesday with Mo Bamba, who would likely be the top target. Bamba is from Harlem and he'd be an excellent fit next to Kristaps Porzingis for one of the longest 4-5 combos in the history of the NBA. The Knicks are comfortable with taking a long-term approach, so maybe they're willing to take on some bad salary.

Kawhi Leonard told Gregg Popovich during their Tuesday meeting that he no longer wants to play for the Spurs, according to Stephen A. Smith.

Leonard has made it clear that he'd like to be traded to one of the Los Angeles-based teams, and that his preference would be to go to the Lakers. It's not a great look for Leonard's camp that he first went to the media, and not management, with his trade request, but perhaps that's an indication of how badly fractured their relationship has become.

Timofey Mozgov is being traded to Charlotte in exchange for Dwight Howard.

Mozgov recently expressed to Nets' management that he was frustrated by riding the pine for much of the year in Brooklyn, so rather than cater to his demands they sent him packing. Mozgov will likely have a tough time finding meaningful minutes in Charlotte as well, so there's no reason to target him on draft day.

The Hornets are finalizing a deal to send Dwight Howard to the Nets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash considerations.

The fact that the best the Hornets get in a trade involving D12 was Mozgov and a few second-rounders tells you all you need to know about the former Defensive Player of the Year's value entering his 15th year in the league. Howard will likely open the year as Brooklyn's starting five-man, which is absolutely terrible news for Jarrett Allen's outlook, while his departure from Charlotte will open up minutes for Willy Hernangomez.
