The Heat have granted the Pistons permission to discuss a front-office position with Shane Battier.

Battier joined Miami's decision-makers in 2017 as the Director of Basketball Development and Analytics, which included evaluating talent "including college, free agents and current Miami players." Detroit is casting a wide net in their search for talent in the wake of Stan Van Gundy's exit -- SVG was serving as both head coach and GM, so there's a big void to fill.

Nikola Mirotic returned to action on Saturday with 16 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block, making 6-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Mirotic missed one game due to illness but looked fine vs. Detroit tonight. He's eligible to be traded on Monday and teams like the Pistons and Jazz have been mentioned as possible suitors -- for now, the Bulls are reportedly holding out for a first-round draft pick. Heat coach Fred Hoiberg referred to playing Mirotic and Lauri Markkanen together as "a fun lineup," so as long as he's with Chicago his role appears safe.

The Pistons have reportedly expressed interest in Nikola Mirotic.

The Pistons and Jazz have now officially been named as teams that are looking to acquire the 26-year-old power forward, but the Bulls can't officially trade him until January 15. They're reportedly seeking a first-round selection in any Mirotic trade, but it is worth noting that a clause was put into Mirotic's contract this summer that gives him veto power in any trade. However, with Mirotic being the one that requested the trade in the first place, that veto thing might not end up being an issue.
Jan 9 - 5:10 PM

The Magic snapped a two-game losing streak on Wednesday, aided by Nikola Vucevic's team-high 24 points on 9-of-16 shooting, five rebounds, four steals and three 3-pointers.

The steals tied Vuc's previous career-high and he's cruising as an early-round this season -- remember the start last year, when Bismack Biyombo (15 minutes) seemed like a threat? He made all three of his free throws tonight, with one assist and one block, and the Magic improved their record to 7-4, which is third in the East behind the Pistons (8-3) and Celtics (10-2).

The Pistons are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Anthony Tolliver.

The Pistons are looking to fill their 14th roster spot, and with them looking at both Tolliver and Jonas Jerebko, it would appear they'd like to bring on another power forward. That's an interesting standpoint for the team to take with Tobias Harris, Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson already on the roster, but apparently, Stan Van Gundy can never have enough stretch-fours.

The Pistons are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Jonas Jerebko.

Detroit has plenty of depth at the power forward spot, so it's somewhat confusing to see their reported interest in Jerebko. If Jerebko does wind up with the Pistons, he'd basically be an emergency depth kind of guy, devoid of any fantasy value.

The Pistons will reportedly have interest in C.J. Miles if he hits free agency this summer.

The 30-year-old swingman will decline the final year of his contract in hopes of a long-term deal, according to ESPN, and Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy has a long-established fondness for perimeter shooters. Detroit's salary-cap situation is in flux, but beat writer Vince Ellis notes that they could pursue Miles with an $8.4 million mid-level exception.
