Timofey Mozgov has expressed to the Nets front office that he is frustrated by his greatly diminished role.

Mozgov started the first 13 games of the season for Brooklyn, but then saw his minutes gradually reduced until the calendar flipped to 2018, and he was exiled from the rotation. He appeared in just seven of the team's final 47 contests. "Yes, Mozgov is not satisfied, and Nets know about it. He is motivated to play and hates sitting on the bench," said Timofey's agent. However, the agent also stated that his client would not demand a trade or seek a buyout. Mozgov is not on the fantasy radar.

Timofey Mozgov told Russian media this weekend that he wants to play more minutes for the Nets "or another NBA team."

Mozgov said he's unsure why he lost his starting job 13 games into the 2017-18 season, and wound up falling out of the rotation. He'll be 32 years old when the season starts and has no clear role on the rebuilding Nets, who have Jarrett Allen at center, but it's hard to see any team taking on his guaranteed $32.7 million salary through 2020.

Jerry Stackhouse has agreed to a deal to join JB Bickerstaff's coaching staff with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Stack was a candidate to take over for the Raptors after his successful stint in the G League. He likely won’t be an assistant much longer and maybe he eventually takes over in Memphis one day.

Ime Udoka - G/F - Nets

Spurs assistant Ime Udoka met with the Pistons on Wednesday about their vacant head coaching job.

Udoka met with team owner Tom Gores, which follows Gores' recent meetings with candidates Dwane Casey and Kenny Smith. The team's front office was reportedly "very impressed" with Casey and he's the apparent frontrunner for the position, having just led Toronto to a Conference-leading 59-win season.

The Pistons continue to do interviews and have TNT's Kenny Smith in its top tier of candidates meeting with owner Tom Gores, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

It sounds like Smith has a shot to take over in Detroit, but it's still believed that Dwane Casey is the favorite, according to Stein and other reports. Stein also added that John Beilein has withdrawn from the coaching search in Detroit. Smith would be an unconventional hire for the Pistons, but they've already shown their desperation since February.

Timofey Mozgov will play for the Russian national team in the last two games of FIBA Basketball World Cup European Qualifiers.

The Russian team said Mozzy has been working out and continues to be in good shape. Mozgov did not play more than 10 minutes in any game during the 2018 portion of the season, so a double-digit minute workload would be a taller order.

Nets guard Caris LeVert said that Jeremy Lin has been going "full speed" in offseason workouts.

Lin has already opted into the final year of his contract, and believes he will be healthy by the start of training camp. "He’s been working out. The past couple of weeks he’s been going full speed," said LeVert. "We haven't done a lot of contact but he’s done all the individual work we’ve done with coaches." The Nets backcourt will be crowded, as Lin will be competing for minutes with LeVert, Allen Crabbe, D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie.

The Pistons are not interested in Jerry Stackhouse as a potential head coaching candidate, according to the Detroit Free Press.

When the Pistons fired Stan Van Gundy, it was assumed that Stackhouse would be one of the favorites to replace him. Stackhouse is widely viewed as a coaching star on the rise, and he was a two-time All-Star as a member of the Pistons during his playing days. However, this report indicates that he apparently "does rub some people the wrong way."

The Pistons plan to interview Kenny Smith for the Detroit head coaching position, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

The Jet has been a key piece on TNT for their NBA coverage, and he's more about the Xs and Os than the other two analysts on the Inside the NBA panel. Smith did also interview for the Knicks job back in April, but it didn't sound like he was close to getting that position. The Pistons sound like they want to get this figured out before the NBA Draft.

Ime Udoka - G/F - Nets

Spurs assistant coach Ime Udoka interviewed for the Raptors head coaching vacancy.

He's also interviewed for the Magic job. Udoka is one of the best assistants on the Spurs staff since joining after a seven-year NBA career. Spurs assistant Ettore Messina also interviewed for the position.

The Raptors interviewed Jerry Stackhouse last week in Chicago for the team's open head coaching position.

Stackhouse is the current head coach of the Raptors G League affiliate, Toronto 905. He's been interviewed by multiple teams like the Magic and Hornets and his name has also been tied to the Pistons. It could just be a matter of time before Stack is a head coach at the highest level.
May 21 - 1:39 PM

The Pistons are likely to consider Jerry Stackhouse and Becky Hammon for their vacant head coaching position, according to Detroit reporter Rod Beard.

We heard Stackhouse's name attached to the Pistons job shortly after Stan Van Gundy was fired. However, Hammon is now also being linked to the Detroit opening. "She is an interesting — and by all accounts, qualified — candidate," a league source who declined to comment on specific coaching searches told The Detroit News. "She’s a legitimate candidate for a head-coaching job, alongside several other rising assistant coaches in the league."

The finalists for the 2017-18 Most Improved Player award are Spencer Dinwiddie, Clint Capela and Victor Oladipo.

Domantas Sabonis and Steven Adams are notable exclusions from the list, but it's hard to argue with the three finalists. As strong as Capela and Dinwiddie were this year, it's almost a given that Oladipo will go home with the award. The Nets will undoubtedly retain Dinwiddie by guaranteeing his $1.7 million salary for the 2018-19 season, but he's not a lock to duplicate his top-100 fantasy finish -- a lot depends on Jeremy Lin's health, and the Nets' willingness to run small-ball lineups with Lin, Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell.
May 16 - 8:32 PM

Jerry Stackhouse and Mike Budenholzer are potential head coaching candidates for the Pistons, according to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

Stackhouse spent five seasons in Detroit during his playing career, and twice represented the Pistons in the All-Star game. An up-and-coming coach, he may be considered the odds-on favorite to land the Detroit job. Vincent Ellis also tweeted out that the Pistons may look to bring in former Cavs GM David Griffin as the team's next general manager.

Ime Udoka - G/F - Nets

Ime Udoka will interview for the Orlando Magic coaching job this week, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

Udoka, who played seven years in the NBA and is currently an assistant with the Spurs, has also interviewed with the Hornets. He is considered one of the top young assistants in the sport.
