Nikola Vucevic made all eight field goals in the first half against the 76ers on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points, 16 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks in 39 minutes.

He finished shooting just 10-of-13 from the field and only scored four points in the second half. Vucevic has two 20-10 games in his last three and tonight's game got him above the 1.0 blocks-per-game threshold. The third-year big man is showing last year was no fluke and he should be in the mix for the most rebounds among Eastern Conference players.

Chandler Parsons is expected to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent.

Parsons' tenure (to date) has not gone according to plan in Dallas, and it's nowhere near certain that he'll return to the Mavs. Despite knee issues hampering his two-year run with the Mavs, Parsons figures to be a desired commodity on the open market and could command more money than Mark Cuban's team feels comfortable paying. In what has become an annual tradition, Dallas could be looking at some serious roster shuffling around Dirk Nowitzki this summer. We think Dirk deserves better for everything he's done and every sacrifice he's made for this franchise, but that's another story entirely.

David Blatt is "still in the mix" for the Knicks coaching job, a source told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Spinach can be in the mix of a pineapple smoothie and go without being tasted, so take this report for whatever you feel it's worth. All signs point to Phil Jackson sticking within his coaching tree to make his next hire, and we're not prepared to believe otherwise at this juncture.

Kristaps Porzingis has announced that he will not play for Latvia in the Olympics this summer.

The Knicks were clear that their strong preference was for Porzingis to eschew international competition, so that's exactly what he's deciding to do. Instead of playing in the Olympics, Porzingis will utilize the summer to make sure his shoulder is right and train with the team.

Nate McMillan is expected to interview with the Kings now that the Pacers season has concluded, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

This confirms a previous report that the Kings had requested permission to speak with McMillan once Indy's season came to a close. Although he won't be discussed or dissected as much as some other candidates in the mix, McMillan would be a very interesting choice for a Sacramento franchise in desperate need of a coach capable of growing with the team while connecting with DeMarcus Cousins.

Carmelo Anthony is uncertain if he will play for Team USA in the Olympics this summer.

Melo and the Knicks are entering a critical offseason together as the team looks to find a clear direction, and Anthony isn't sure he wants to "put his body through that grind" at this stage of his career. As for his commitment to New York, despite reiterating his desire to have a say in the coaching search, Melo hasn't yet been consulted. "I would want to be involved," he said. "I hope I'm involved. Just to have my opinion heard. But I've already laid out how I feel and put everything out there on the table. Now, it's just on them." Additionally, Anthony wants the Knicks to acquire a "competing attitude" rather than settling for "being mediocre." Phil Jackson's next head coach will set the stage for what comes next between New York and their supposed franchise building block.

Frank Vogel and the Pacers have had "no discussion of a contract extension," sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Although this doesn't outright mean that the Pacers will move on from their head coach, the door is at least cracked ajar for the scenario to play out. If Vogel hits the open market, he'll immediately be one of the more desired candidates for any remaining openings. It's a situation to watch with Indiana's season now over and the Pacers needing to quickly shift into offseason mode. Stay tuned.

Paul George finished the Pacers' tense 89-84 defeat in Game 7 on Sunday with 26 points (8-of-18 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, four 3-pointers, three steals and one assist.

George got off to a torrid start, including a 360 dunk in the first quarter, but Toronto zeroed in on him defensively (forcing seven turnovers) and his singular brilliance wasn't enough tonight. It was nevertheless a tremendous year for PG-13, who bounced back from a lost season to average 23.1 points, 2.6 threes, 7.0 boards, 4.1 assists and 1.9 steals while playing in 81 games during the 2015-16 regular season.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points to help Toronto advance to the second round on Sunday, making 10-of-32 shots with five boards, two assists, three steals, two blocks and just one turnover in 40 minutes.

DeRozan ranked third in the NBA for free throw attempts this season, at 8.4 per game, but he averaged just 5.0 freebies in Games 1-6 vs. the Pacers. He got hot early tonight with 13 first-quarter points and wound up 9-of-9 at the line, while his 32 field goal attempts set a franchise playoff-high for Toronto. His first-round inefficiency is water under the bridge now that he's helped his team advance in the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

Cory Joseph had another terrific game on Sunday, posting eight points, three rebounds, four assists and one block in the Raptors' series-clinching 89-84 home victory.

Joseph is shining in the national spotlight, and his two-way play off the bench is a big reason Toronto won their first playoff series since 2001. His penetration helped Toronto win the fastbreak battle for the first time all series, 12-8, and he was even more critical with Kyle Lowry (11 points on 5-of-14 FGs) struggling for most of the game.
May 1 - 10:48 PM

Norman Powell played like a seasoned veteran during Sunday's thrilling Game 7 victory, posting 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting with three 3-pointers, three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 23 minutes.

Powell was a throw-in when the Raptors traded Greivis Vasquez to the Bucks for a 2017 first-round pick, but he's proven to be a diamond in the rough for Toronto. The former No. 46 pick bodied up Paul George defensively despite giving up five inches, he thrived in catch-and-shoot situations, and he consistently made smart decisions. He'll be on Miami's radar when the Raptors host the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern semi-finals.
May 1 - 10:43 PM

The Kings reportedly plan to interview David Blatt for their vacant head coach position.

The interview will take place on Monday and Blatt is one of many candidates for the Kings job, joining already-interviewed coaches Sam Mitchell, Mike Woodson and Vinny Del Negro. Blatt has also been linked to vacant head coaching jobs with the Knicks and Lakers, so there's a good chance that he'll be pacing the sidelines for an NBA team in 2016-17.
