According to CSNNE's Greg Dickerson, "the company that Paul Pierce hangs around in" do not believe Pierce will return to the Celtics next season.

Dickerson takes it one step further by saying that he doesn't "think Paul Pierce believes" he'll return to Boston. This needs to be taken with a tablespoon of salt given the way it's phrased, but GM Danny Ainge has already acknowledged that Boston's offseason begins with a determination on Pierce's future. There are no easy answers for the Celtics. If Pierce doesn't return, Kevin Garnett's future will be very much up in the air.

Unrestricted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge and Kobe Bryant "didn't quite gel" at their meeting.

LMA reportedly "didn't quite get answers from Kobe we was seeking." The Lakers have a lot of attractive parts of their franchise, but it's really going to be hard to convince free agents to sign there with Kobe's $25 million on the books this upcoming season.

The Lakers will not be signing LaMarcus Aldridge, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times.

According to this credible report, Aldridge disliked the basketball part of the presentation, which is a fairly important part of basketball free agency. The Lakers were considered as the No. 2 team to land Aldridge, so the Spurs' chances are looking even better.

LaMarcus Aldridge is planning to finish his meetings before making a decision.

There are multiple reports that he's very impressed with the Spurs. Considering the Spurs have already moved Tiago Splitter in order to get Aldridge, they are the favorites to land him. Of course, the Suns could sneak in there with the possibility of a sign-and-trade, which may include Eric Bledsoe.

Monta Ellis is in Indiana to meet with Larry Bird and the Pacers.

The Pacers are reportedly prepared to offer a three-year, $32 million deal, so they might actually get a deal done after this meeting. If it doesn't go down, expect the Kings, Heat and Mavs to get a crack at Monta.

The Knicks are planning to meet with unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez in Los Angeles.

A New York Lopez rivalry? The Knicks were gashed in the paint last year and could use a guy like Lopez to help them on the glass. He's much more durable than his brother, but Robin isn't quite the offensive presence.

Jonas Jerebko will sign a two-year, $10 million deal with the Celtics.

Apparently his awful four postseason games against the Cavs didn't matter. Jerebko did come on down the stretch during the regular season and even put up a 16-point game in the finale, but this big of a contract is a slight surprise.
Jul 1 - 3:42 PM

Restricted free agent Kyle Singler has agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal with the Thunder.

There aren't many players getting five-year deals and Singler is one of the bigger surprises. Chances are this is a cap-friendly deal for a guy who might not even be in the rotation. The last year of this deal is a team option.
Jul 1 - 3:37 PM

The Warriors and restricted free agent Draymond Green have broken off contract talks.

The Warriors met with Green and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, in Los Angeles after 12:01 a.m. EDT. Green has likely earned a max deal and Tristan Thompson getting around $80 million is going to strengthen the case for Draymond, too. The Warriors are still likely to match any deal.
Jul 1 - 3:25 PM

Tyson Chandler has agreed to a deal with the Suns worth $52 million over four years.

Well, we have our first surprise of the day. Additionally, the Suns are going to bring Chandler to their meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge. The Suns had some issues with center because Alex Len just couldn't stay healthy, but now they have two terrific rim protectors. Len is no longer a fantasy sleeper for next year while Chandler should be a double-double guy with blocks in an up-tempo style. Of course, the Suns signing a 32-year-old big man to a four-year deal carries some serious risk.
Jul 1 - 3:15 PM

The Suns and Brandon Knight have agreed on a five-year, $70 million deal.

The Suns now have two guards with five-year, $70 million deals with Eric Bledsoe getting one last year. Coach Jeff Hornacek has been a fan of two-PG lineups, but both guys are more than capable of being shooting guards. However, both are sub-par passers and it'll be interesting to see if Knight can build off his breakout 2014-15 season.
Jul 1 - 2:58 PM

The Grizzlies and Mo Williams have been in contact regarding a contract.

There are some reports that Williams is getting close to a three- or four-year deal with Memphis. The Cavs were reportedly close on Mo, but it sounds like the Grizzlies have a decent chance.
