Danilo Gallinari (knee) has not started running yet.

He hoped to be running this week, and he still doesn't know when he'll be able to do so. Gallinari previously said he was targeting a late-November return, so not hitting this step of his rehab process figures to put a dent in that timetable. Wilson Chandler (hamstring) figures to put up two months of solid production while the Italian is out.

The Kings are expected to meet with free agent Wesley Matthews in Sacramento on Thursday.

Sacramento traded a protected first-round pick to unload the salaries of Carl Landry of Jason Thompson. There were more wrinkles to the deal, but the apparent end-goal is signing some combination of Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis and Matthews. The Kings' available funds may be enough to persuade Matthews to join them, but he's also drawing serious interest from the Raptors and Mavericks.

The Knicks have reportedly expressed interest in FA Monta Ellis, who met with the Pacers in Indiana on Wednesday.

The Pacers are engaged in serious talks with Ellis and are reportedly ready to offer him a three-year, $32 million deal, but the lack of resolution as of Thursday morning confirms that he's weighing his options. Sacramento also has interest in Ellis and they cleared cap space in a go-for-broke trade with Philly, so the Kings can't be discounted as a potential landing spot.

The Kings will receive Arturas Gudaitis and Nikola Mitrovic in the Nik Stauskas trade.

And you thought Vlade Divac was done flopping when he retired from playing. These two guys were picked 47th and 60th in the draft for a guy who went eighth in the draft just last year. Sam Hinkie took Vlade to the cleaners on this one.

The Pelicans and Omer Asik have agreed on a five-year, $58 million deal.

Holy cow. It's the last deal of a wild day and it is perhaps one of worst buys with $44 million in guaranteed money (the 2019-20 season isn't guaranteed). Asik wasn't a great fit next to Anthony Davis, but maybe coach Alvin Gentry can turn him around. The Pelicans have spent $200 million on the players that figure to get almost all of their center minutes this year. Asik isn't worth drafting in most leagues.

Jae Crowder has agreed to a five-year, $35 million deal with the Celtics, with the entire salary guaranteed through the 2019-20 season.

Crowder was essentially a cast-off with the Mavericks but his solid play for Boston earned him a massive pay-raise to $7 million per season over a long-term contract. It could be a solid value for the Celts if Crowder develops into a DeMarre Carroll-type talent, locking down defensively while steadily improving his FG shooting (41.4 percent) and 3-point shooting (31.6 percent). It's an interesting gamble for GM Danny Ainge and Boston's front office -- other than signing veteran PF Amir Johnson in free agency, they appear content to develop from within this season.

The 76ers also received a first-round pick from the Kings and have swap rights with Sacramento in the first round of two other drafts.

If you thought the 76ers would do a trade and not get a first-round pick back, we hope you enjoy watching your first season of 76ers basketball.

The Kings reportedly made their trade of Carl Landry, Nik Stauskas and Jason Thompson to pursue Rajon Rondo along with either Wesley Matthews or Monta Ellis.

It's going to be very interesting to see how much money Rondo gets because no other team has been linked to him. This would also make for some outstanding reality TV, but we digress. Expect the Rondo deal to get done somewhat soon.

Nik Stauskas has been traded to the 76ers.

Pat's and Geno's better get a menu item with Sauce Castillo on it. Delicious cheesesteak ideas aside, the Kings are clearing out salary so they can go after some free agents. The 76ers have some serious depth issues at guard, so Sauce could get plenty of playing time. Still, he hasn't done much to prove he's capable of putting up solid fantasy value.

The Kings are trading Jason Thompson and Carl Landry as part of a salary dump to the 76ers.

So it turns out Sam Hinkie didn't take the day off today. Thompson was the longest tenured King on the roster, but now he may get some playing time with the 76ers. Although, there's a chance the team lets their young guys get minutes. Don't be too aggressive in targeting Thompson right now.

Draymond Green and the Warriors have agreed on a five-year, $85 million deal.

There was no way any team had a chance to pry Draymond Green away from the Warriors. He will continue to get minutes at center and should have even more playing time next season. The Warriors are expected to try and deal David Lee, but that won't affect Green's playing time. He's a top-25 pick in fantasy leagues? Yeah.
Jul 1 - 10:58 PM

The Raptors and Mavericks are "in a battle" for Wesley Matthews, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Raptors just threw $60 million at DeMarre Carroll and Matthews is likely looking for a deal in that neighborhood. The Mavericks could potentially offer more money to Matthews and he would move into Monta Ellis' starting spot, assuming he heads to Indiana. It sounds like Wes' deal should be done in the next day or so.
