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.

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.

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.

Pablo Prigioni will join the Nets coaching staff as an assistant coach next season.

Prigioni will help develop the young guards in Brooklyn, and this is a solid add by the Nets' front office. They also hired Tiago Splitter on Tuesday, who will serve as a pro-scout and assist in player development.

Jerry Stackhouse and David Fizdale "made strong cases for themselves" during their interview with the Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Stackhouse has seen his stock rise rapidly over the last year. In addition to the Knicks, he will also interview for the head coaching job with the Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets. It seems likely he will land one of the open positions this offseason.

Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Nets GM Sean Marks said he would love to re-sign Joe Harris this summer.

"I thought Joe made it pretty clear ... he'd love to be back here," Marks said. "Definitely he's a guy we see in a Nets uniform." The Nets will have the cap space to get a deal done and Harris has probably earned himself a multi-year contract. He averaged career-highs in points (10.8), rebounds (3.3), assists (1.6) and 3-pointers (1.9), shooting 49.1% from the field and 41.9% from beyond the arc.
Apr 16 - 12:01 PM

D'Angelo Russell said that he wants to become a leader for the Nets this offseason.

"I want to be that point guard or better yet, lead guard when I have the ball in my hands," he said. "I want to develop that trust with the coaches and the players around met that I’m going to make the right play when the ball is in my hands, especially at the end of games. I want to show that I can finish it out." Russell was averaging 21 points and six assists before missing 33 games with a non-contact knee injury, but his play was volatile after he returned to action. Still only 22, Russell is loaded with talent but needs to work on his defense, shot selection and ball security this offseason.

Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Unrestricted free agent Joe Harris said he would like to stay with the Nets next year.

"I think everybody is kind of on the same line [of thinking] right here," Harris said about himself, his agent, GM Sean Marks and coach Kenny Atkinson. Harris wasn't in the rotation to start the year, but the injuries to Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell got him some minutes. He had a mini-breakout year and he'll likely be looking at a multi-year, guaranteed deal.
Apr 12 - 2:34 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he's impressed with how quickly Jeremy Lin (knee) is progressing.

"We’ve just got to be really super, super-cautious," Atkinson said. "We don’t want to rush this in April, May. But I was blown away at how well he was moving, and the stuff he did yesterday." Lin hasn't had any setbacks and will be 100 percent for training camp. He exercised his $12.5 million player option for 2018-19, but his path to fantasy value will be complicated because of D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie.
Apr 12 - 10:44 AM

Jarrett Allen said he's "definitely" going to "add a lot of muscle" this offseason.

"I want to add strength, shooting, and offensive game stuff," he said. "[Defensively], I think I’ve done pretty well, and I know I’ll get even better with time, but I need to work on offensive skills, dribbling, shooting, and post work." Allen averaged 10.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.7 blocks in 23.8 minutes when he moved into the starting lineup, shooting 62.1% from the field and 80.5% from the line. Still only 19, he's going to generate a lot of hype this summer.
Apr 12 - 10:29 AM

Caris LeVert (foot) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, posting 11 points, six assists, three steals, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

The Nets used their 25th different starting lineup of the season tonight, and LeVert wound up with his first start since mid-December. It wasn't his best shooting night at 4-of-13 from the field, but he made both of his free throws and looked fine despite his recent injury. He'll be a popular target late in drafts, especially if don't bring back Joe Harris in free agency.
