Eastern Notes: Fournier, Sixers, Nets, Wall

The Pistons targeted another Magic player before settling on the trade for Tobias Harris in February, and that player was likely Evan Fournier, as Rod Beard of The Detroit News writes in a slideshow of mostly far-fetched candidates to sign with the Pistons in free agency. Fournier is poised to become a restricted free agent in July, but Magic GM Rob Hennigan, who can match all competing bids for the swingman, expressed determination to keep him, and Fournier apparently wants to stay in Orlando.

See more from the Eastern Conference:

  • The Sixers struck deals to hire NBA Associate VP of basketball operations Ned Cohen to a high-ranking basketball operations job and Wizards VP of Scouting Marc Eversley as vice president of player personnel, report The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt and The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears (All Twitter links). Cohen and Eversley will presumably report to president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo. Many around the league regard Cohen highly and see him as a future GM, Wojnarowski tweets. Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post previously reported the Sixers were interviewing Eversley, who worked under Colangelo on the Raptors.
  • The Nets have added several to their front office, including former No. 5 overall draft pick Shelden Williams, who’ll serve as a pro scout, and U.S. circuit court law clerk Natalie Jay, who’ll work as a cap and contract specialist, as the team details via press release. Spurs staffer Andrew Baker joins the Nets as strategic planning coordinator and Stanford assistant coach Charles Payne will be a pro and college scout for Brooklyn, the team announced. The Nets also said they promoted Ryan Gisriel to director of basketball administration. Gisriel has served the team as an intern, special projects coordinator and as assistant to the GM since his hiring in 2013.
  • John Wall has undergone procedures on both knees, but he’s expected to be ready for the start of next season, the Wizards announced.

    I have trade where I know most like never happen but I do think would help bring Kevin durant home to Washington, D.C. It 4 team deal between the Wizards , king, magic and 76ers .So her it is

    Kings would get
    C Marcon Gortat-12 million 2016/2017 season
    C Jalail O’kofar – 4,788,840
    Sf Hollis Thompson – 1,015,696
    2016 first round pick ( if wizards keep the pick other wise 2017 first round pick
    2018 first round pick
    2019 1st round pick if wizard keep there pick other wise 2019 first round pick
    If wizard do keep there pick and trade it to king then king would get 2017 2nd round pick
    2019 2nd pick if they get the 2016 1st round pick other wise 2020
    2021 2nd round pick
    The Kings would taken on 17,804,536 million next year and losing 33,097,653
    And this will give them 38,524,772 million under the cap next year

    Wizards would get
    C Domarcos cousins- 15,755,438
    Pg Seth curry – 1,615,696
    Pg/Sg- victor Oladipo- 6,500,000
    Wizards would lose 20,980,640 and taken on
    That would give them 36,443,654 to spend on free agents

    Magic would get
    C/f drew gooden- 3,6 million
    Sg Ben mclemore 4,008,882
    2 first round pick from 76’s
    1st would be 2 highest pick they have either there’s or the Lakers
    And 2nd rather the heat or thunder which one would be the lost pick n the draft
    That would mean magic would take on
    Taken lose 18,250,000
    And taken on with picks 14’608,852
    Which would give them 47.732,877 in cap space so they could go sign c Dwight Howard and another max player,
    And the 76ers would get
    C Nikola Vuceria -11,780,000
    Pf Markief Morris 8,million
    Sf Rudy gay- 13,333,333
    Sg jerrell Eddie 980,640
    The 76ers will lose 12,804,536
    And take on 34,093,973
    Still give them 34,333,317 to spend on free agents
    And since no major free agent are going to philly this season and philly is touch city they would get 3 legit starter with toughness that where made for touch philly and young 3 point sniper like Eddie gives them better chance to win next years as well 76er’s still would have 2 1st round pick this year and 4 first round picks in the future
    And like I was say This trade make it harder for durant to turn down the wizards
    The would have best center in the game in cousins top 5 point guard in wall top 10 shouting guard in beal and the next Sean Lee in Otto porter Jr. and next Scotty pippen in Kelly Oubre jr
    they could sign pf Ryan Anderson or Jeff green for around 12 million to 13 millio Sg O.J mayo or sign greivis vaszuez for 3 to 5 million and c Kendrick vet min and Aaron white for 850 thousands and Tomas satoransky for 3 million sign another big man for min . there’s no way durant could turn that team down
    If this happen this would give wizards best chance to sign Kevin durant

      It’s insane you have this much time, to have thought this out and to type it.

    Not really I figure it out in 15 min. You just have creative mind and have iq of 148

    Magic just need to let this team grow and pickup a rim protector and they will be fine.

    Sorry but I hate to tell you it’s rumor around that Howard is going to op out of his contract and he want to go back to Orlando and that ownership was interested in bring him back to Orlando

    Rather you fans don’t like it , this trade makes since in many reasons for magic there not going to draw any other major free agent to draw fans and win games and Philadelphia needs legit nba starter with grit and Sacramento need to realize no coach that going to to higher that make cousins happy and it time to move on and rather any one likes it he want to play with his best friend on the court and that’s John wall if this trade goes through it would make all teams involve better and $ it works on all levels
