Sixers will receive a protected 1st-round pick from the Kings, and swap rights w/ Sacto in the 1st round of two other drafts, sources say.

Kings ship 3 to Sixers to clear cap space

The Sixers will absorb the contracts of Carl Landry and Jason Thompson -- along with Sacramento's 2014 first-round pick Nik Stauskas, according to ESPN and multiple reports. The deal was first reported by Yahoo! Sports. Sacramento has entered the race for the Blazers free agent swingman Wesley Matthews, according to league sources.

Warriors re-sign Green to 5 years, $85M

The Warriors have agreed to terms on a five-year, $85 million deal with free agent forward Draymond Green, according to Bleacher Report. Green told the website: "It's been a long journey to get to this point, whether it's always trying to overcome the odds, overcome doubters, but to be in this position, signing back with the Warriors is amazing."

Doubt Draymond Green would re-sign?

ESPN senior writer Ramona Shelburne: "There wasn't really a doubt. There was more like a pause. ... The first conversation, there was a gap in what he wanted versus what they were offering. But essentially he was just watching everyone else get obscene amounts of money."

'Cavs could not replace Iman Shumpert'

ESPN's Brian Windhorst: "Had he left in free agency, they would not have the mechanism to D up a wing defensive player and shoot 3's alongside LeBron James."


What should D.J. do in free agency?

Max Kellerman suggests DeAndre Jordan join the Lakers and cash in next season when Kobe Bryant is off the books. Marcellus Wiley doesn't buy that advice: "Let me ask you if going to a worse team for less money with questionable ownership is a better move or not."

Kobe Bryant sends message on Twitter

In the wake of reports that LaMarcus Aldridge was not impressed with the basketball portion of the Lakers' free agency presentation, Kobe Bryant tweeted a not-so-happy meme. Kobe upset with reports?

Nothing is going to be imminent with these minimum salary guys. Obviously no one rushes to verbally agree to those terms until they have to.

Kevin Negandhi @KNegandhiESPN

If you think the players are getting paid in NBA free agency, just think what the owners are raking in. They don't spend unless they make $$

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi

Doc tried hard to sign Kendrick Perkins last season. He chose Cleveland but played sparingly. Doc is still interested.

If you're wondering how Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford will work together off the bench, you're not alone.
