Boston GM Danny Ainge said he "loves" Ante Zizic's potential but is not yet sure if Zizic will play for the Celtics next season.

The C's drafted Zizic with the 23rd overall pick in 2016 and stashed him overseas last season. Zizic was surprisingly effective in the Turkish league, which led many to believe that the C's would bring him stateside. However, Ainge is not in a rush. "I don’t want to put any pressure on guys that have never played in the NBA yet," said Ainge. "I don’t even want to go there with expectations. Let’s wait and see. We love his potential. But we’ll see. I mean, at some point I do believe he’ll be able to help us, but when that is and how early that is in his career, I don’t know."

Coach Steve Kerr said that Stephen Curry looks "fresher, faster and stronger than he did a year ago."

Last year, after an incredible regular season, Curry was clearly less than 100% in the playoffs. In the Finals, Curry averaged just 22.6 points and 3.7 assists, while shooting 40.3 percent from the floor. That was a sharp dropoff from his 2016 regular season stats (30.1 points and 6.7 assists on 50.4 percent shooting). This postseason, his scoring average and shooting percentages have actually increased compared to the 2016-17 regular season. We know Steph will be looking to atone for last season's disappointing Finals performance.

Warriors acting head coach Mike Brown missed the team's practice on Monday due to an illness.

With Brown dealing with the flu, Steve Kerr filled in for him on Monday. However, Kerr said that he is still in pain and it appears unlikely that he will be ready to coach the team in Game 1. "No. As of right now, I would not coach Thursday night," Kerr said. "But it’s still up in the air. Waiting for that ‘ahhhhhh’ (moment). It’s coming." Kerr intimated that he wants to make a firm decision, one way or the other, about coaching in the Finals before Game 1. He doesn't want it to be a game-by-game decision.

Brook Lopez said he's excited about the Nets future and is "all in."

Lopez has been rumored in trade talks constantly over the last couple of years, and his name will likely be bandied about again this offseason. However, Lopez says he's encouraged by the direction of the franchise and is committed to his teammates. "Moving forward, I’m just all in, trying to do all I can to help my team be successful," said Lopez. "We’ve got a great group of guys who really have that team-first attitude and we really believe that we can do something special as long as we put the effort out and we put the work in."

Steve Kerr said that he's still not feeling well enough to coach a game.

"I’m OK. I’m alright. I’m not well enough to coach a game," said Kerr. "I know that because I coached all 82 games and I felt OK. I’m comfortable, in a lot of pain, but I did fine. Then the first two games of the Portland series, whatever happened, things got worse. You saw me in the fourth quarter of Game 2. I could not sit still in my chair. There was that much pain. I would say I’ve gotten a little bit better." It looks like Mike Brown will be the lead coach on the sidelines for the Finals.

Ivan Rabb will workout for the Lakers on Tuesday.

Rabb compiled averages of 14.0 points, 10.5 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.0 block and 2.2 turnovers per game on 49.0 percent shooting during his sophomore season at Cal, and he could be an option for Los Angeles when they come on the board with the No. 28 pick on draft day. He's a solid rebounder, but he'll need to completely rebuild his jumper and add some muscle to his frame to make a real impact at the NBA level.

Jerami Grant said getting stronger is one of his top priorities this summer.

"I think they're doing a great job here of getting me stronger in certain areas," Grant said. "I think they're specific to what we want to do with my body. And on the court, being able to read the defense, slow my game down a little bit, not moving 100 miles an hour." Grant had some nice moments in OKC this season, but he only played 19.1 minutes per game with averages of 5.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 triples on 46.9 percent shooting. He's an elite shot blocker at the small forward position and shot 37.7 percent from beyond the arc, so the 23-year-old will be hoping that a strong offseason will help him earn a larger role in 2017-18.

Tony Parker (quad) told L’Equipe that he plans to make his return in January.

"I will play my best basketball when I return in January," he said. This confirms that Parker is expecting an eight month recovery after undergoing surgery to repair his ruptured left quadriceps, meaning he could miss the first couple months of the 2017-18 season. He will likely have heavy restrictions upon his return with plenty of maintenance days mixed in, so the 35-year-old veteran won't be a recommended fantasy asset next season. With Patty Mills hitting free agency, Dejounte Murray could open the season as the starting PG.
