The Rockets have interest in free agent point guard Mike Conley but won't get a visit with him according to a source. Rockets remain confident in Patrick Beverley's abilities to run the point. The objective is to find a backup if Beverley remains the starter.

Clippers had no chance with LBJ back in 2010. Blake was injured as a rookie in 09. DJ was still raw. But it was huge to get in the room.

Or three years ago when Hawks were determined to get an audience with Dwight Howard, both for the present & paving way for the future

It reminds of 2010, when then Clips GM Neil Olshey cashed in yrs of chips to land mtg w/ LeBron. Huge validation to get mtg eventho no shot

As for Lakers failure to meet w/ KD. One league source incredulously asked yesterday why Kupchak/Buss haven't spent last 8 months on this

How confident is Isaiah Thomas that Danny Ainge can land a big free agent? "I'm very confident. I'm not going to say it's going be Kevin Durant. Who knows? I'm confident he's going to get a couple guys and build on what we got going here."

Isaiah Thomas said that if he's in the recruiting contingent, he's going to buy some Durant shoes and gear to wear into the meeting.

This sign is across the street from where Sam Presti met Kevin Durant for their meeting at Chesapeake Energy Arena. With Durant officially a free agent tomorrow, probably not unintentional:

Joakim Noah's meeting with the Knicks is set for tomorrow afternoon, sources say. Noah will have the opportunity to take phone calls from other teams starting at midnight tonight, which is interesting. The Knicks remain strong favorites for Noah, however, and people around the league would be surprised if the deal between Noah and the Knicks wasn't completed. The meeting time was earlier reported by the NY Post.

Hornets small forward Nicolas Batum is expected to meet with the Mavericks in free agency, according to a league source.

In other words, don't assume Clippers *have* to trade one of the big three to get Durant. They're intent on pitching him on a big 4 scenario

Calvin Watkins ESPN Staff Writer 

Rockets have strong interest in free agent center Al Horford according to multiple sources. A visit between the parties is expected.

Spurs would need to trade players

Tom Penn shows San Antonio what it would need to do to make enough cap space to sign Kevin Durant.

Reminder to self: Dont miss today because you're worried about tomorrow. Today is a gift.

OKC's hope, I'm told, is making one last pitch to KD in the Hamptons after the Warriors, Clippers, Spurs, Celtics and Heat get their turns.
