The Hornets have been granted permission to interview Spurs assistant Ettore Messina for their head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Kupchak and Messina have worked together prior when Messina was an assistant on Mike Brown's Lakers staff, so there is some familiarity here. This is the first name we've heard connected to the job since Steve Clifford's dismissal earlier in the week, and we're certain we'll be hearing about more candidates in the coming days/weeks ahead.

The Sixers snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Spurs on Wednesday, aided by J.J. Redick's 20 points, four assists, three 3-pointers and two rebounds.

Redick hit 6-of-12 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs while committing just one turnover in 32 minutes. This is exactly the type of efficient scoring owners want to see from J.J., who is checking all the usual boxes. He'll never be a great source of supporting stats, but deserves credit for averaging a career-high 2.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists (second-highest in his 12-year career).

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have agreed to a contract buyout.

Wade was owed $23.8 million but he'll leave approximately $8 million on the table in the buyout, which allows him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it shouldn't take long for Wade to strike a new deal -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs are the "clear frontrunner," but the Spurs, Heat and Thunder are also mentioned as possibilities.

The rumors implying that LeBron James is seriously considering a move to Los Angeles after the 2017-18 season have been "overblown," according to Chris Broussard.

"I think the talk about the Lakers is overblown," Broussard said. "That doesn’t mean it’s definitely not going to happen… If he leaves, especially if he goes West to the Lakers, there’s a very good chance that he’s not getting back to the Finals [because of the Golden State Warriors]." Broussard argues that if winning championships will be James' primary goal, and not necessarily going to a major market, that the Spurs would make the most sense for King James; but Broussard would also hedge his bets on LBJ remaining in Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving has reportedly been irked by the Cavs giving preferential treatment to LeBron James.

In addition to no longer wanting to live under the immense shadow of King James, Irving has reportedly at times been perturbed with how the franchise treats him and LBJ differently, such as allowing James to have friends travel with him on the team plane without awarding Irving the same luxuries. He was also particularly upset when he learned that his name had been included in trade talks for Paul George and Jimmy Butler this summer, and at this point, it looks as though this is a bridge that cannot be mended.

Rudy Gay's preference would be to sign with the Thunder, but there's a "sizeable gap" on what Oklahoma City can offer and what Gay is looking for, according to sources of Royce Young of ESPN.

The Thunder still need to try and work out a deal for restricted free agent Andre Roberson, but if Roberson's price gets too high, that could make bringing in Gay an extremely difficult endeavor. Gay has also been linked to the Timberwolves, Kings and Spurs, but him re-upping with Sacramento seems incredibly unlikely considering he opted out of his contract with the club worth $14.3 million despite the fact that he's currently recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

Andre Iguodala is "deliberating" a three-year, $45 million offer from the Warriors, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Iguodala has done well to drive up his asking price -- all three years of Golden State's offer are guaranteed, and the $15 million annual salary is higher than expected. Iguodala is reportedly also fielding multi-year offers from the Spurs, Rockets and Kings. He should decide by Sunday, at which point other dominoes will begin to fall.

Andre Iguodala has canceled the remainder of his free agency meetings, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Interesting. Iguodala's meeting with the Rockets ended Saturday afternoon while he's also talked to the Spurs, Lakers and perhaps the Kings. While there's no word on the specifics of the meetings, ESPN reported that Houston has made an offer to Iggy and the meeting was "excellent." There have been some clear moves to try and gain leverage against the Warriors, so this could be the newest one.

The Spurs reportedly "broke off" discussions with free agent PG George Hill, who has also been contacted by the Nuggets and Knicks.

Hill is one of the best available PGs this offseason, especially now that Ricky Rubio has been acquired by Utah and Chris Paul has been acquired by Houston. The Spurs have Dejounte Murray and Tony Parker under contract, and they quickly inked Patty Mills to a four-year, $50 million deal on Friday. Hill is almost certain to start wherever he lands, but his fantasy value will be determined by his surroundings.

Rudy Gay has "surfaced" as another possible free agent target for the Spurs, according to Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News.

Gay is going to take his weekend meetings in Austin, Texas as he rehabs his Achilles. His rehab has been going well and he recently posted a video of him on a treadmill, so he may actually have a chance to be ready for the opener. Gay is 31 years old and will look to get more than the $14.3 million he left on the table when he declined his player option.

Chris Paul and his agent reportedly met with the Clippers brass on Tuesday to discuss his future with the organization.

CP3 will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and while the Clippers will be able to offer him the most money during free agency, a team like the Spurs or the Rockets could grant him a competitive offer and also the chance to go further than the first round of the postseason. At 32 years old, this summer will essentially be Paul's final opportunity flirt with a long-term, max contract as a free agent, but he may be willing to sign a shorter-term deal at slightly less than the max if he believes another team would give him a better chance at competing for a championship.

The Timberwolves, 76ers, Spurs, Clippers, Magic, Nets and Jazz will all reportedly pursue Andre Iguodala as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Kevin Durant is reportedly going to take less than the max as a free agent this offseason in an attempt to help the Warriors keep the band together, but some of these opposing teams will be able to offer the 33-year-old, 2015 Finals MVP significantly more money this summer. Iguodala's best shot of being a part of another championship team is obviously in Golden State, but at 33 years old, this will also be his final opportunity to sign a big-money, long-term deal during free agency.

The Spurs, Celtics, Suns and 76ers have all reportedly reached out to the Knicks regarding Kristaps Porzingis.

How far any of these talks got is uncertain, as it's being reported that Phil Jackson's asking price in any potential Porzingis deal remains very high, but it's interesting to see that New York appears to be fielding offers for a guy many believe is their franchise player. For what it's worth, according to Porzingis' brother, KP6 remains committed to the Knicks despite the constant drama that has surrounded the franchise since his arrival.

Adrian Wojnarowski is not expecting Chris Paul to sign with the Spurs as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"[San Antonio] would have to just tear up that entire payroll," said Woj. "It's almost unlike anything the Spurs would've done or would do to even have a chance at him. I mean, they'd have to really gut the roster. And to do that for a 30-plus-year-old point guard, who has a couple great years left, there's no question -- I think there's more pressure on the Clippers to have to re-sign him than for the Spurs to turn their whole franchise over to make a run at him." CP3 would also have to give up a ton amount of money to join the Spurs, making this scenario an unlikely one.
Sun, May 28, 2017 06:22:00 PM

Zach Lowe of ESPN stated during a recent podcast that he believes the Spurs could be a legitimate option for Chris Paul as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"There's been a lot of rumblings about Paul, and I think that's real," Lowe said of CP3 potentially joining the Spurs as a free agent. "I think there's mutual interest there. I don't know how real it is given the Clippers can offer a gigantic amount of money and are also a really good team; and the Spurs, like I said, have no sort of cap flexibility to get there. I'm very curious about what they do this summer and who's on the team next year." If Paul wants to chase a ring, his best shot of realizing that goal may be in San Antonio, but he'd have to take a pay cut to make it work.
