The signings will come quickly over the next few days.
Andrew Bogut will ink a deal with the Cavaliers.
Brandon Jennings will sign on to be the Wizards’ reserve point guard.
Jose Calderon will sign on with the Warriors, as the two sides previously agreed to, but then will almost instantly be waived so Golden State can sign Matt Barnes to fill in while Kevin Durant is out.
Those guys are among a number of players who officially cleared waivers Wednesday, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.
All of this requires other moves. Such as the Wizards clearing out a roster spot to sign Jennings.
The Wizards will need to clear out a roster spot as well, and reports are it will not be Trey Burke as had been speculated.
As for what happens to Calderon, keep an eye on Atlanta.
The Grizzlies lost for the 15th time in their last 16 games, a 25-point drubbing at home against the Heat, last night.
But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in Memphis.
This young fan – while playing in the halftime scrimmage – stopped his dribble, stepped on the ball, whipped off his youth jersey to reveal a Marc Gasol jersey, flexed, re-started his dribbled then drove for a basket.
Matt Ellentuck of SB Nation:
The Grizzlies don’t deserve this hero.
For better or worse, DeMarcus Cousins is moody.
Just after getting dunked on by Clint Capela, Cousins showed his frustration by pushing Trevor Ariza after a whistle. The Pelicans center got his NBA-leading ninth technical foul – automatic suspension triggered at No. 16 – but I’m surprised this didn’t escalate beyond just that.
The Thunder suffered a rough home loss to the Hornets, but at least Oklahoma City produced a couple fun highlights.
Not only did Russell Westbrook have this powerful dunk, Paul George put the moves on Jeremy Lamb.
