Green, Warriors not seeing eye to eye

ESPN senior writer Ramona Shelburne: "Right now, there's a gap. And somebody I talked to said it's not good or bad, but there's a gap right now. And until the Warriors offer him what is closer to what everybody else is getting paid, they're not talking."

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."

Paul Pierce's deal with the Clippers is for 3 years but don't focus on the years. It'll essentially be year to year. He turns 38 in October.
