Pistons acquired PG Brandon Jennings via a sign-and-trade with the Bucks.

The full deal is Jennings for Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Slava Kravtsov. Jennings has agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with Detroit. The Pistons move on from a talented tweener in Knight and get an upgrade in Jennings, a scoring point guard with star potential. He won't turn 24 years old until September, averaging 17.0 points, 5.7 assists and 3.4 rebounds through four NBA seasons. Jennings has plenty of room to improve on his career 39.4 shooting percentage, and will be playing with significant talent in Detroit. The Pistons now have a potential starting five of Jennings, Rodney Stuckey, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. We suspect that Jennings has already been told that he'll be playing more of a facilitating role in Detroit and it's safe to project a bump in his assists.

We are gathering additional information and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps."

David Blatt will become the head coach of Darussafaka Dogus, according to sources in Turkey and Israel.

This comes as a bit of a surprise as Blatt had interviewed with NBA teams and had a standing offer from Maccabi Tel Aviv. We may see Blatt in the NBA again some day, but Blatt will now focus his attention on Euroleague as Darussafaka Dogus has a wild card to participate in the league next season.

Kevin Durant is likely to re-sign with the Thunder, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

While fans across the league are hoping Durant will sign in their city as an unrestricted free agent, Stein reports that most league insiders predict Durant will sign a two-year max deal with the Thunder with an opt-out clause after the first year. We'll keep an eye on news surrounding Durant as free agency approaches, but it doesn't sound like he's going anywhere.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points during a 96-88 Game 7 victory over the Thunder on Monday, adding five rebounds, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Both Thompson (30) and Stephen Curry (32) broke the previous record of most 3-pointers in a playoff series. The 3-pointers were the key with the Warriors outscoring the Thunder by 84 points beyond the arc in the last two. On the other end, they held the Thunder to just 12 points in the third quarter, which were the fewest points they allowed in a quarter in these playoffs. As for Klay, he started off ice cold and missed his first seven shots from the field, but has developed a knack for back-breaking treys. Steph may have won the MVP, but Klay was the best player in this series.

Draymond Green scored 11 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks, two turnovers and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes against the Thunder in Game 7 on Monday.

The Warriors went back to their money-making small lineup in the last two with 12 minutes tonight and 11 minutes in Game 6. On the offensive side, Green wasn't forcing the issue again during this win while his defense was top notch once again. He'll be a huge factor against LeBron James and could be big on the offensive end. The Warriors really attacked Kevin Love in pick-and-roll during the regular season, so that figures to be a popular play in their halfcourt sets. Expect a huge series from Green.

Andre Iguodala made his first start of the postseason on Monday in a win over the Thunder, playing 43 minutes with seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

His 43 minutes were the most on the team and it's the first time he's cleared the 40-minute plateau in these playoffs. Iguodala's defense was unbelievable during the last three games as one of the most under-appreciated players on the Warriors. He was the Finals MVP last year for his defense on LeBron James, so he'll be playing huge minutes in The Finals this time around.

Kevin Durant made 10-of-19 from the field for 27 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers during a 96-88 Game 7 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

He attempted at least 30 shots from the field in the previous two games, but he wasn't looking for his shot at much until late in the game. Plus, Durant took tough shots for basically the entire game with Andre Iguodala playing suffocating defense. He's heading into free agency this summer and this loss will make that a very popular topic in the next month. Durant and Russell Westbrook are close, so he has a very good chance to stay in OKC.
May 31 - 12:03 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 19 points during a Game 7 loss to the Warriors on Monday, adding seven rebounds, 13 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

He had some uncharacteristic misses in this game, especially around the rim. Westbrook made just 28-of-76 (36.8 percent) in the three losses with a ton of isolation. Heading into the series, the Thunder shook off the narrative of struggling to close games, but it came back to bite them again with the Warriors beating up on them in the second half in the last three. Westbrook is still 27 and it'll be intriguing to see how he ages. He's a freak, so he could dominate with his athleticism for a long time.
May 30 - 11:59 PM

Stephen Curry was phenomenal during a series-clinching 96-88 victory over the Thunder on Monday, scoring 36 points with five rebounds, eight assists, and seven 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

The MVP lived up to the billing with his best game of the series and the most triples he's hit all postseason. Curry's threes will get all the headlines, but he really got into a groove on drives to discombobulate the OKC defense. His defense was very solid yet again as the Warriors were swarming on the perimeter and were excellent on switching. The MVP will get a few days off before Game 1 of The Finals on Thursday.
May 30 - 11:32 PM

Andre Iguodala is starting for Harrison Barnes in Game 7 on Monday.

It's the right move after Iguodala played arguably one of the best defensive games one can play on Saturday. Iguodala hit 38 minutes on Saturday and should approach 40 minutes again. He'll see plenty of time on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
May 30 - 8:49 PM

The Raptors are preparing to give Jonas Valanciunas a larger role in the offense.

Finally. Valanciunas was Toronto's best player in the postseason before sustaining his ankle injury, and at 24 years old, JV is ready to carry more weight on his shoulders. "Yes he is," GM Masai Ujiri said when asked if Valanciunas was prepared for an increased role. "Even from talking to [Casey] we feel that way, Jonas feels that way, players feel that way." After averaging career bests in points (12.8) and rebounds (9.1), expect another step forward in 2016-17.
