The Pacers and Paul George are finalizing a maximum five-year, $90 million contract extension, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal should be official later this week. George earned Most Improved Player honors for the 2012-13 season, averaging 17.4 points, 2.2 threes, 7.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.6 blocks per game before leading Indiana to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Indiana paid fair market value for a rising star who will only be 28 years old when his new deal ends. "Now that I have this contract, I’ve got to do more work," George said earlier this week. "I’ve got to go out and play at the level the guys that are making this much money are playing at." Nobody needs to worry about George's massive extension leading to complacency on the court.

Ty Lawson's relationship with the Nuggets continues to be shaky, and Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post speculates that he could be traded in the near future.

When asked by a Dallas Mavericks fan on Instagram to come play for Dallas, Lawson replied,"I wish". Lawson immediately deleted the post, but not before the media got to it. It's pretty obvious that he has grown frustrated with the Nuggets, and a change of scenery would probably be best for both sides moving forward. We will follow this story closely, but don't be surprised if Lawson is wearing a different uniform to start the 2015-16 season.

Tim Duncan was noncommittal when asked about possibly retiring after the Spurs lost Game 7 to the Clippers on Saturday night.

"I'm not making any statements," Duncan said. While it's hard to imagine Duncan retiring after such a remarkable performance this series, we do have to consider that he is 39 years old. Duncan also added that he could see "the light at the end of the tunnel," but it doesn't necessarily sound like he will rush into a decision. If he does decide to return to the Spurs, he will still be worthy of a mid-round selection after averaging 17.9 points, 11.1 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals in the postseason. We will pass along additional updates as soon as we know more.

Chris Paul (hamstring) had the most iconic game of his career during a Game 7 111-109 victory over the Spurs on Saturday, scoring 27 points with two rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, five 3-pointers and one turnover.

CP3 also hit a game-winning shot with one second left to earn the series victory. He also suffered a hamstring injury and was able to return in the second quarter. Paul was grabbing his hamstring throughout the game and he was limping numerous times, as well. Coach Doc Rivers said CP3 could miss Game 1 on Monday in Houston and Rivers said he'd guess his star PG can't go, so that will be the biggest story to watch. Until then, let's just re-watch this instant classic a few more times. It's still not fair that the No. 2 and 3 teams for net rating had to play in the first round.
May 2 - 11:35 PM

Blake Griffin triple-doubled against the Spurs on Saturday with 24 points, 13 boards, 10 assists and four turnovers in 40 minutes.

That's two triple-doubles in this series and Blake's averages are otherworldly. In the seven games, Griffin averaged 24.1 points, 13.1 boards, 7.4 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.4 blocks and 2.7 turnovers. He's playing some of his best ball of his life and he'll have huge numbers against the Rockets as well. The series starts on Monday.

Danny Green had a very impressive game during a tough 111-109 loss to the Clippers in Game 7 on Saturday, scoring 16 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and three 3-pointers.

While he wasn't great off the ball on defense, his on-ball D was tremendous. Green was one of just six players in NBA history to average at least two blocks, one steal and one block (qualifiers for minutes) in a season. He was a fantasy monster and will be again next season. You won't be able to get him in the last few rounds this time, though. Tony Parker also had a good game tonight with 20 points, five boards, five assists and one steal.

Tim Duncan played unbelievably well against the Clippers during a thrilling 111-109 loss on Saturday, scoring 27 points with 11 rebounds and no turnovers in 37 minutes.

It was an amazing game to arguably the best first-round series ever. Duncan clearly has several miles left on his tires and it's hard to imagine him retiring after this season. He's 39 years old, but he might be playing until he's 45 based on how awesome he was tonight. He'll be someone to target in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Chris Paul (hamstring) returned to Saturday's game in the second quarter.

Owner Steve Ballmer's face probably isn't quite as red. Although, Paul does seem to be limping a bit, so he's not at 100 percent. He's going to have to man up here. This should be an amazing game.
May 2 - 8:58 PM

Chris Paul suffered a left hamstring injury against the Spurs on Saturday and went to the locker room.

Not good. He's had hamstring problems in 2012, 2013 and 2014 with his recent one being a right hamstring back in Apr. 2014. His left hamstring has been a bigger problem in his career, so this is troubling. We'll have an update soon. If CP3 is out, the Clippers are in deep, deep trouble.
May 2 - 8:40 PM

Mike Conley (face) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Sunday in Game 1.

We still haven't heard if he practiced yet and Tony Allen said "I can't tell y'all" about Conley at practice today. There's hope he'll be able to play at some point in this series, but it doesn't look like it'll be Sunday. The Grizzlies will likely use Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes at the point. Although, it's worth mentioning they had a no-PG lineup briefly in Game 5 vs. Portland.
May 2 - 6:38 PM

Glen Davis (ankle) will play against the Spurs on Saturday.

This comes from coach Doc Rivers and is as official as we'll get. Rivers said Davis is "good" for this game, so expect him to play around 10-15 minutes tonight. Blake Griffin should be around 42 minutes and DeAndre Jordan's playing time will be based on how often he's fouled.
May 2 - 6:16 PM

Ognjen Kuzmic sprained his ankle and will be re-evaluated in one week.

He wasn't in the rotation and the Warriors are really tightening it up in their frontcourt. Draymond Green played more minutes than any Warrior in the first round and he will be a huge piece for the second round.
