Thunder’s reported goal: Extend Russell Westbrook’s contract, sign Blake Griffin

Why did the Thunder rescind Dion Waiters qualify offer? To prevent him from unilaterally accepting it and reducing the cap space they needto renegotiate and extend Russell Westbrooks contract. And thats only onecomponent of Oklahoma Citys plan. Not only do the Thunder want to re-do Westbrooks deal, they hopeto parlay that into signing Blake Griffin. []

Would Nets be interested in Dion Waiters? Doubt it

Are the Nets interested in unrestricted free agent Dion Waiters?

The Brooklyn Nets have 14 -- possibly, yet, 15 -- players under contract for the 2016-17 NBA season. Still, they have some $21 million in cap space left to spend, if they so do choose, and very few tires out there worth kicking. One of said tires, however, could be Dion Waiters, says a speculative Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. This after he reported that the Thunder has rescinded the qualifying offer to Waiters, making him an unrestricted free agent.

NBA Free Agency: Kings sign Arron Afflalo to 2 year, $25 million deal

The Kings have a new shooting guard!  And even better, his name isn't Dion Waiters.  Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings have come to an agreement with Arron Afflalo for a 2 year, $25 million deal. Afflalo isn't the same player he was earlier in his career, and definitely won't fix all the problems the Kings have on defense, but he's still a big upgrade at the Shooting Guard position.  He's a career 38.5% shooter from three, and even last year in what was considered a down year for him in New York, he still managed to shoot 38.2% from long range. The contract is very reasonable as well for...

Add Matthew Dellavedova to the potential list of new Kings

Free Agency kicked off last night and I have to say, early returns for the Kings aren't encouraging.  The name they've been most connected to in early rumors has been Oklahoma City guard Dion Waiters, a restricted Free Agent that will likely cost quite a bit and won't necessarily be a huge upgrade at our biggest position of need.  I would much rather the Kings focus their time and money elsewhere. Speaking of elsewhere, Chris Mannix is reporting another new name that the Kings contacted last night that would probably make a whole lot more sense: Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova....
