Kyrie Irving is eligible for the Designated Player Veteran Extension (DPVE) in the summer of 2018 if he earned All-NBA during the 2017-18 season. The extension would be valued at five-years $219M. He would not be eligible for the same extension if he was traded but could sign (with the team traded to) a five-year $188M contract in 2019-20 when Irving would be a free agent. The current contract of Irving is $18.9M, $20.1M and a player option in 2019-20 for $21.3M. Irving also has a 15% trade bonus valued at $5.8M. The trade bonus would be equally ($2.9M) distributed over the 2017-18 and 2018-19 season if he were traded.

LeBron went to management and said whatever you do, need to keep Irving, reason he is disappointed. I also think this is very Kyrie.

Free agent Pau Gasol has agreed on a three-year deal to return to the San Antonio Spurs, league sources tell ESPN.

Yes, Bonzie Colson will have terrific year. Unstoppable in college. But needs perimeter game before we invoke Draymond Green name.

Can see why NBA teams like Wichita's Landry Shamet's PG size & skill. Predict huge jump between now & March. Why? Coaching.

Former first-round pick Jared Sullinger is in New York this weekend playing in The Basketball Tournament, looking to show NBA teams that he's in top shape again. Sullinger, a free agent, was injured in the preseason last year in Toronto and returned to the team in poor shape. He was subsequently moved to Phoenix, which released him. Sullinger is playing in the tournament, which has a $2 million prize on the line, with the Scarlet and Gray -- an Ohio State alumni team. The Scarlet & Gray play tomorrow at LIU Brooklyn in the TBT Super 16 round.
