Nolan Smith, an unrestricted free agent, will not return to the Blazers next season.

"They have a path they want to go down, and it's pretty obvious I'm not on it right now," Smith said during his exit interview. Smith added the team made it "pretty clear" that they don't want him to return, and now Smith will be playing with a chip on his shoulder wherever he lands. Right now, he's best known as the guy drafted ahead of Kenneth Faried in 2011.

Nikola Jokic appears to have lost weight already this offseason, and he will not play in international basketball this summer.

There's a picture of Jokic in the column link below. Additionally from Mile High Sports, Jokic has not started his offseason workout regiment, but he will in the next 10 days or so. Jokic's summer will be an interesting one with him being in line for an extension. Regardless, he'll be a top-eight pick in standard fantasy drafts next year.

Damian Lillard, James Harden, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis were named to the 2017-18 All-NBA First Team.

Harden, LeBron and AD were absolute locks to make the First Team with Harden and LeBron being unanimous, but Dame over Russell Westbrook and KD getting in there over someone like Giannis Antetokounmpo were the questions we needed answered today. Lillard's Blazers held the No. 3 see in the Western Conference, which no doubt affected the voters. Lillard did have a wonderful year with a career high in dimes at 6.6 and with his 59.4 TS%. Dame Dolla will be going platinum in fantasy drafts as a top-eight pick next year.

Russell Westbrook, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, LaMarcus Aldridge and Joel Embiid made the 2017-18 All-NBA Second Team.

After just 31 games in his rookie season, The Process doubled that with 63 games, averaging 22.9 points, 11.0 boards, 3.2 dimes, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 treys in 30.3 minutes per game. Westbrook somewhat surprisingly doesn't get on the First Team despite how he averaged a triple-double on the year after his MVP season with the same feat. Giannis also made his second All-NBA Team after last season and he'll have a better shot to be First Team next year while LMA earned his fifth All-NBA nod and DeMar added his second in his career.

Stephen Curry, Victor Oladipo, Jimmy Butler, Paul George and Karl-Anthony Towns were named to the 2017-18 All-NBA Third Team.

Both KAT and Oladipo earn their first All-NBA honors with Jimmy Butler getting his second of his career, which may be a slight surprise due to Butler not hitting 60 games and his team barely making the postseason. Butler did finish with 54 points in the voting, which tied Chris Paul and was just over Rudy Gobert (51), but those two played different positions to keep them off the All-NBA squads. Curry did lead the Third Team with 164 points, which put him just behind DeMar DeRozan (165) on the second team. PG-13 also picked up his fourth All-NBA nod.

Andre Iguodala was seen shooting around but is still a game-time decision for Game 5 in Houston on Thursday.

When asked about Iggy's status Steve Kerr said, "Incremental progress. Still a game-time decision." Iguodala was out for Game 4 and it clearly had an impact on the Warriors as they lost their first home game since the 2016 NBA Finals. It'll be a tough test to go without him on the road if he's sidelined for Game 5.

LeBron James scored 26 points (11-of-22 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds and five assists, but also had six turnovers in the Cavaliers 96-83 Game 5 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

This was a forgettable game by LeBron's standards, the game was never really close or highly competitive after the first quarter and he seemed to lack his normal fire. Head coach Ty Lue said about LeBron, "He looked a little tired to me, yes." The King will have to shake off his lack of energy or his seven-year Finals streak will come to an end. Expect LeBron to bring it and have one of his signature elimination games on Friday.

Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to along with seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks in Boston’s 96-83 Game 5 win over Cleveland on Wednesday.

With his 24, Tatum has now scored the fourth most points (312) by a rookie in postseason history. He only needs 41 more points to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most ever by a rookie. The rook continues to emerge as a star and is now one win away from a trip to the NBA Finals.

Klay Thompson (left knee strain) is officially listed as questionable for Game 5 on Thursday, but head coach Steve Kerr says he thinks Klay's "going to be fine."

Klay did return to Game 4 after injuring his knee and Steve Kerr also said he's "moving around really well." It looks unlikely, but if he were to miss Game 5 it could be a series-changing blow to the Warriors. We'll have a better idea of his status after shootaround on Thursday.
May 23 - 9:33 PM

Aron Baynes will reportedly start at center for Game 5 on Wednesday, with Marcus Morris shifting to the bench.

The Celtics are coming off two straight losses in Cleveland, so coach Brad Stevens opted to switch things up. The Cavs pounded Boston on the glass in Games 3 and 4 and Stevens is likely betting that Baynes will help neutralize Tristan Thompson's impact on the boards, while providing superior rim protection.
May 23 - 8:22 PM

Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion) is questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

Iguodala was ruled out for Game 4 after shooting around during warmups, but was "feeling better" on Thursday. "He's out on the floor [on Thursday] not doing a whole lot, but making progress," Steve Kerr said. Iguodala could once again be a game-time decision -- if he's ruled out, Kevon Looney should draw another start in a bigger lineup.
May 23 - 7:40 PM

The Clippers and Doc Rivers agreed to a contract extension.

Rivers had one year left on his deal, and there was some buzz that Rivers could have hit the market this summer. That obviously won't be the case anymore, but now Rivers will have a new way to approach his job with the Clippers expected to rebuild with their two lottery picks.
