76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said that it's highly unlikely that they will trade the No. 1 pick.

Additionally, Colangelo indicated that the team won't announce who they will take at No. 1 and it sounds like they haven't decided between Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram "[Simmons] is a ball-handling four, who actually would be in a position to initiate the offense. Very versatile. Plays multiple positions," Colangelo said. "As you look at a Brandon Ingram, more of a shooter, a silky smooth small-forward type. I think you have to look at his versatility. But the one thing that stands out is his ability to shoot the basketball, above all else. There is obviously two very interesting candidates there."

Jaylen Brown said that his game is better suited for the NBA.

"Absolutely, without a doubt," Brown said. "I feel like in the NBA it’s more open court, it’s more transition. You don’t get penalized for being physical." Brown could be an option for the Celtics with the No. 3 pick in the draft, and it's widely believed that he won't fall out of the top 10. "Coach [Brad] Stevens is great. He talked about how I would fit," Brown said. "I know they want to win right away and [they] feel like they can do that."

J.B. Bickerstaff is rumored to be in the mix to join the Grizzlies' coaching staff.

The Grizzlies recently hired David Fizdale as head coach, and Bickerstaff reportedly met with him on Friday night. Bickerstaff wasn't able to turn the Rockets season around when he replaced Kevin McHale last season, so a fresh start in Memphis could be a good career move.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Bucks are expected to extend coach Jason Kidd's contract.

The Bucks were a letdown this season and finished with a 33-49 record, but it sounds like Kidd will be sticking around. Kidd's rotations can be a headache for fantasy owners, but he should continue to be great for the development of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton.

Stephen Curry stepped up during a riveting 108-101 victory over the Thunder on Saturday, scoring 31 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

He wasn't having his best game while Klay Thompson carried the Dubs' offense. Curry played some very good defense late in the game, which was a popular topic after Russell Westbrook chuckled about it after Game 5. Curry scored six points in the fourth, including a game-tying trey with 2:47 left. After the game, Curry said he kind of likes playing through the aches and pains because it helps him understand the moment of these playoffs. He still hasn't had a complete explosion in this series, so maybe that happens in Game 7 on Monday. Get ready.

Draymond Green scored 12 points with 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in a team-high 43 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

Just like in Game 5, he played under control and didn't try to do too much with a few exceptions. Green had plenty of contested boards during this game in what was by far the biggest weakness for the Warriors tonight. As for his offense, all of his two-point shots have been in the paint in his last two. Green will be the backbone of the Warriors defense in Game 7 with huge minutes.

Andre Iguodala started the third quarter during Saturday's win over the Thunder, scoring eight points with seven rebounds, one assist, three steals and one turnover in 38 minutes.

It was a long overdue move to put Iguodala out there with the starters. He had some huge defensive stops and forced turnovers late in the game, playing defense on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The Warriors went back to their vaunted lineup of Iguodala, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes for 11 minutes, posting an awesome plus-54.7 net rating in that time. Iguodala is a good bet to start Game 7 after really locking down KD.
May 29 - 12:38 AM

Andrew Bogut scored five points with five rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He looked really, really tired and made some mistakes late in the game. The Warriors were able to go small more often and have success, so that will be something to watch for Game 7. Expect to see Bogut getting minutes in the upper 20s again on Monday.
May 29 - 12:24 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 28 points during a 108-101 Game 6 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and five turnovers in 44 minutes.

The Thunder will live and die by Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, but it was the latter late in this game. Westbrook was stripped a couple times late and turned the ball over four times in the fourth. His 44 minutes tonight are the most he's played in these playoffs while posting a 32.9 usage rate in that time. If he cut down on the turnovers, the Thunder might be headed to Cleveland. Instead, they're off to Oakland for Game 7 at Oracle Arena.
May 29 - 12:22 AM

Kevin Durant made 10-of-31 from the field for 29 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 45 minutes in a Game 6 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

He was trying to do a little too much and had a really bad fourth quarter. In his 11 fourth-quarter minutes, Durant made 1-of-7 from the field and turned the ball over twice. He joins LeBron James as the only player this decade with back-to-back games with at least 30 field goal attempts in a playoff game. On the other side of the ball, Durant's defense was great once again and has been one of the most unheralded stories in these playoffs. He'll need to be more careful with the ball on Monday.
May 29 - 12:15 AM

Enes Kanter scored eight points with three rebounds and one block in 11 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He had a really tough two-minute stretch to start the game and might not have come back in if not for Steven Adams getting into foul trouble. However, Kanter really got it together on both ends to give the Thunder big minutes. Even with the productive outing, he might not play double-digit minutes on Monday.
May 29 - 12:00 AM

Steven Adams scored nine points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He was a monster on the offensive glass with six on that end. Adams did make a few mistakes during this game and went underneath a couple screens on defense late in the loss as the Warriors hit plenty of clutch threes. Adams got into a bit of foul trouble in this game, but Enes Kanter stepped up while he was on the bench. Adams has a huge responsibility on Monday.

Klay Thompson was unbelievable during a 108-101 win over the Thunder in Game 6 on Saturday, scoring a playoff career-high 41 points with four rebounds, one steal, one block and 11 3-pointers.

What. A. Game. The Warriors were down seven points with five minutes left and pulled off a thrilling comeback. Thompson set an NBA playoff record with his 11 treys and scored the most points for a Warrior in these playoffs, making 14-of-30 from the field with 18 attempts from deep. The triples were the story with the Warriors, outscoring the Thunder 63-9 from the 3-point line. You'll want to clear your schedule for Game 7 on Monday.
May 28 - 11:50 PM

Andre Iguodala started the third quarter for Harrison Barnes in Game 6 on Saturday.

Finally.

Bryce Dejean-Jones was calling for his girlfriend when an apartment owner shot him through a bedroom door, according to a report obtained by ESPN.

According to the report: "The owner picked [up] a firearm to defender his/herself and fired through the bedroom door killing Bryce. An autopsy is currently underway. It will take a couple weeks for toxicology to return, but it is unknown at this time if a substance played a part in the incident."
