Drafting at No. 8, the Knicks may be choosing between Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina.

Fortunately for the Knicks, who are in desperate need of a point guard, the 2017 draft class is loaded with top-tier PG prospects. In most years, a playmaker with the upside of Smith, who averaged 18.1 points and 6.2 assists as a freshman, would be off the board in the top five. However, Smith is ranked by most as the fourth-best PG in this draft, behind Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox. Ntilikina, who is just 18 years old and sees only limited minutes off the bench in France, has less of a body of work to be judged on, but scouts love his combination of size and athleticism.

Pending free agent Gerald Green said that he hopes to re-sign with Boston this summer.

Green stated that his main goal is to return to Boston and help them win a championship. "I've felt at home in a number of places, but definitely here, with the city and the fans," said Green. The Celtics have over $30 million in cap space this summer, so their priority will be landing far bigger fish, such as Gordon Hayward. They also have to make room for some of the players they have been stashing overseas. There may not be a roster spot available for Green.

The Clippers take the threat of the Spurs pursuit of Chris Paul "very seriously," according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

It is important to note that the Spurs won't have the requisite cap space to make Paul a comparable offer unless they can clear some salaries off the books. Also, assuming the Clippers are willing to offer him a max contract, it's hard to imagine CP3 leaving $200 million in guaranteed money on the table. Nonetheless, Paul joining the Spurs would make San Antonio a legit threat to the Warriors out West, and give CP3 his best chance at experiencing postseason success.

John Wall said that he would like the Wizards to improve their depth this offseason.

"We need to help our bench," said Wall. "Just to be honest, that was our downfall in each series that we had in the [Eastern Conference] semifinals, our bench got outplayed." In particular, the Wiz need to add quality backup guards. Wal was clearly worn down by the end of the seven-game series vs. Boston. Tomas Satoransky and Trey Burke were inconsistent all season. Washington then signed Brandon Jennings, but Jennings was awful in the postseason. The Wiz need to add a reliable backup PG to limit the wear-and-tear on Wall going forward.

Former L.A. coach Byron Scott said he "felt betrayed, lied to and deceived" by former Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak and former executive Jim Buss.

Scott had only two years guaranteed on his four-year contract, but Scott claims that Kupchak and Buss had promised him they would exercise the team option for his third year. However, Scott was fired following the 2015-16 season. Scott is also of the opinion that the Lakers front office used him as a buffer between them and Kobe Bryant. "If I asked him to do certain things, Kobe would do it because of his respect for me," said Scott. "Basically, you just wanted me there to help you guys get through the next two years, so Kobe doesn’t go crazy on you guys."

Steve Kerr is still not ready to return to the bench for the Warriors.

Due to his back injury, Kerr remains in a great deal of pain. "If he feels better and we have to make those decisions, we will, but right now we're not putting any deadlines on should he feel better what will we do," general manager Bob Myers said on Thursday. "It'll be based on what day it is, how exactly he feels, how long he's felt well." At this point, it's probably safe to assume Mike Brown will handle gameday coaching duties during the entirety of the Finals.

Among NBA scouts and GMs at the draft combine in Chicago, Jayson Tatum was considered the favorite to win Rookie of the Year in 2018, according to Chad Ford of ESPN.

Tatum, due in large part to his size (6'8" with a 6'11" wingspan) and strength, will be ready to make an impact right away in the league. He averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game as a freshman at Duke last season. As with all rookies, his projections for next season will be largely dependent upon which team drafts him. If he lands in a situation that allows him to play heavy minutes, he will have a great chance at taking home ROY honors.

Lonzo Ball is considering scheduling a workout for the Sixers, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.

Ball has already informed Danny Ainge and the Celtics, who hold the No. 1 pick, that he will not work out for them. Lonzo's father, LaVar, had said that his son would only work out for the Lakers who own the No. 2 pick. However, it appears that the Ball camp is now reconsidering their options. Putting all their eggs in the Laker basket would be a risky proposition, as there is no guarantee the Lakers feel as strongly about Ball as the Ball family feels about L.A.
