Other notable news/rumors:
- Kevin Durant has conducted all of his free agent meetings and will make a decision on Monday. It doesn’t sound as if any team besides the Clippers has been formally removed from the running, but the Thunder and Warriors remain the favorites, with the Celtics, Heat, and Spurs lurking.
- If the Spurs don’t land Durant, there’s a good chance they’ll reach a deal with Pau Gasol.
- Manu Ginobili will return to the NBA for at least one more season.
- A report that Allen Crabbe and the Nets have reached an agreement on an offer sheet was refuted, but Crabbe will meet with Brooklyn this week.
- The Warriors have agreed to hire Mike Brown as their lead assistant coach.
- Sixers first-round pick Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has signed his rookie contract.
- The Kings are rescinding their qualifying offer for Seth Curry, making him an unrestricted free agent.
