The Pistons officially announced Stan Van Gundy as their new president and head coach on Tuesday.

SVG will earn $35 million over five years, and the Pistons aggressive package of financial largess and managerial power was enough to sway him to sign in Detroit. Van Gundy will take his time evaluating the team's operations before making any personnel decisions, but he's rumored to have interest in hiring former Magic GM Otis Smith.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks have "strong interest" in trading for Kyrie Irving, but they are not willing to include Kristaps Porzingis in any potential deal.

Unlike Phil Jackson, the Knicks new front office tandem of president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry are not even considering moving Porzingis. They intend to build the franchise around New York's prized unicorn. However, Begley does report that the Knicks would consider including Carmelo Anthony and future first-round picks in a package for Irving. As the rumors surrounding Kyrie continue to swirl, the Knicks will definitely be in the mix.

Regarding the Kyrie Irving trade demands, the Cavs were given four preferred landing spots: New York, Miami, San Antonio and Minnesota.

And this is the NBA offseason. It sounds like Irving is legitimate in his demands and not wanting to live under LeBron James' shadow. This is basically the third day of the "offseason" in the NBA, but it looks like chaos is in store for the Cavs this offseason -- maybe they should've brought their GM back. Expect a ton of Kyrie Irving rumors this summer.

Pau Gasol has agreed on a three-year deal to return to the Spurs.

There is only a partial guarantee on the third year of this deal for the Spaniard. It's a nice deal for the 37-year-old big man, and he should be in a similar role. There was some talk of the Spurs going smaller with Rudy Gay (Achilles) now in the mix, but now they'll have to work in LaMarcus Aldridge and Gasol to their frontcourt rotation.

Kyrie Irving asked the Cavs to trade him in a meeting last week, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Oh boy. "Irving has expressed that he wants to go play in a situation where he can be a more focal point and no longer wants to play alongside LeBron James," the report says. This comes off the heels of Irving saying things are "very peculiar" in Cleveland at an SI event earlier this week. The Cavs may be having the worst offseason possible and this can't be a good look to keep LeBron James next season. There's really no way to spin this positively for the Cavs.

Troy Williams has agreed to a 3-year deal to stay with the Houston Rockets.

The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed, but he will have to earn the second and third seasons. Williams played well in stints with the Rockets and Grizzlies last season, but he really made an impression in Vegas during the Summer League with averages of 22.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.4 treys. The 22-year-old wing looks like he's ready to contribute next season, so he'll be in the mix to fill the void left by Sam Dekker.

The Wolves are working on a five-year extension for Andrew Wiggins according to head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The extension would be worth nearly $148 million, but it wouldn't kick in until 2018-19. Wiggins has already established himself as an elite scorer with a career-high 23.2 points per game last season, but Thibodeau said he wants to see him become a "complete player" and believes Jimmy Butler will help with his development. Wiggins was only a 10th-round value in standard leagues last season due to a lack of peripheral stats, but he's still only 22 and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Damian Lillard said he's reached out to Carmelo Anthony and said it's a "real possibility" that Anthony could join the Blazers.

The Blazers reportedly have made it clear they won't be involved in a Melo trade unless they're the ones getting the All-Star forward. Lillard isn't usually the recruiting type, but C.J. McCollum has touched on this subject and even posted a photoshopped picture of Anthony in a Blazers uniform. Anthony does have a no-trade clause and several reports say he wants to go to Houston, so the Rockets should be considered as the frontrunners.

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.

Mario Chalmers will sign a one-year deal with Memphis according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The deal is only partially guaranteed for one year, so he's still not a lock to make the 15-man roster. Chalmers hasn't played in the NBA since tearing his Achilles back in March of 2016, but he's healthy again and it's nice to see him get another shot. He will battle Wade Baldwin for the backup PG role, so he won't have much fantasy value in Memphis.

Ty Lawson has agreed to a deal with the Shanxi Dragons of China.

Lawson had an okay year with the Kings this past season, compiling averages of 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game, but most teams around the league have already filled the point guard position, so the market never really materialized for Lawson. It's not currently clear if his CBA contract will include an NBA-out clause, but he'll definitely be making more money overseas this season than he could in the NBA.
Jul 18 - 7:09 PM

Willie Reed has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Clippers.

Reed will have a similar role in Los Angeles to the one he had with Miami last season, operating as DeAndre Jordan's primary backup. His minutes will likely be in the teens on most nights, so Reed won't be on the floor enough to make any meaningful contributions in fantasy hoops.
