Evan Turner's monster payday with the Portland Trail Blazers — he'll earn more than $14 million over his final salary in Boston — is another selling point for the Celtics to use when trying to lure non-elite free agents. Two years ago, few teams would even roll the dice on Turner. Look what two seasons with Brad Stevens did for Turner's career.

The Mavs, sources say, are meeting with Mike Conley in Dallas right now, still trying to pry him from Memphis and new prize Chandler Parsons

For what it's worth, $70 million over four years for Evan Turner was almost exactly the most the Blazers could make without renouncing any key free agents.

Since Mike Conley co-chaired Memphis' Chandler Parsons recruiting along with J.B. Bickerstaff, you can safely assume Conley is staying there

Safe to say that when we determine if some team can be this year's Portland in getting value free agents, it won't be the Blazers.

Former Celtics guard Evan Turner has agreed to a 4-year, $75 million deal with Portland, agent Kevin Bradbury told ESPN.

Joakim Noah posted a photo of himself in a Knicks hat on Instagram. Seems to be an indication that they've come to an agreement.

Memphis has added Chandler Parsons. Should help keep Mike Conley. Grizzlies could be a factor next season.
