**Report: Bobcats plan to pursue Al Jefferson in free agency
The Charlotte Bobcats have reportedly reached out to representatives for Utah Jazz center Al Jefferson to gauge his interest in signing here.


Ken Berger @KBergCBS

As free agency opens, the Charlotte Bobcats are pursuing Jazz forward Al Jefferson, a league source tells @CBSSports.
 

Adrian Wojnarowski         @WojYahooNBA

Free agent Al Jefferson is expected to visit Charlotte on Wednesday to meet with Bobcats officials, league source tells Y! Sports.

 

 

 

**David Aldridge         @daldridgetnt

Have been told the Pelicans' sheet to Tyreke Evans is four years, $44 million.

 

A source told Sporting News that the Pelicans’ offer is in the range of four years and $40 million, and that New Orleans hopes to bring Evans off the bench in a Manu Ginobili-style role.

 

 

**Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of Philadelphia free-agent guard Dorell Wright, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

 

The return of Kevin Martin to the Thunder appears unlikely, unless the market for him dries up completely and he has to return at a far lower rate than he’s trying to find, league sources said.

 

 

**C.J. Watson head to the Indiana Pacers

 

 

**Andre Igoudala expected to speak with the Nuggets, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

 


New Nuggets coach Brian Shaw and general manager Tim Connelly will attend the team’s meeting with Iguodala. New Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro was assistant GM in Denver during Iguodala’s season there.

 

 

**Report: Dwight Howard asked Rockets about adding another max player

 

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey discussed not only the plans going forward, but was also asked about how the Rockets were built to position themselves to be able to offer a second max contract.

 

 

**Dave McMenamin         @mcten

The Lakers also inquired about Charlotte free agent Byron Mullens on Sunday night, per a league source.
 

 

**Report: Bucks, Suns, Pistons may try to poach J.R. Smith from Knicks

 

 

**Report: Knicks have interest in Monta Ellis for some reason

 


A union of Ellis and the Knicks is viewed as a long shot, as the Knicks have only the $3.2 million taxpayer mid-level exception available. Ellis just opted out of a deal that would have paid him $11 million next season in Milwaukee.

But Ellis, 27, and his Washington, D.C.-based agent, Jeff Fried, are known to be willing to compromise in order to sign with a contending team. And the Knicks, who face the free-agent loss of sixth man of the year J.R. Smith, would provide ample opportunity for Ellis to showcase his scoring prowess deep into the playoffs.

 

**Chris Paul confirms he’s “all in” with Clippers

This will be a five-year, $107 million deal, the max he could get. Paul has an opt-out option after four seasons.

 

 

**Oden, 25,has received interest from the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Indiana Pacers and Memphis Grizzlies, league sources said.

 

 

**The Golden State Warriors  are exploring trade opportunities for All-Star forward David Lee and the three years, $44 million left on his contract, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.Lee, 30, is a popular and well-respected player within the Golden State franchise but his contract is considerable, and moving him for a star – or a player on a shorter deal – makes financial sense.

 

 

**Marc Stein         @ESPNSteinLine

Add a new suitor to Eric Bledsoe sign-and-trade derby: Clips and Mavs discussing Bledsoe-for-OJ Mayo in live S-and-T scenarios

 

 

 

**Detroit Pistons general manager Joe Dumars met with Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith at 12:01 a.m. ET with a plan to make the free agent forward a substantial four-year offer, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

 

 

**Marc J. Spears         @SpearsNBAYahoo

Thunder G Kevin Martin expected to get interest from OKC, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Minnesota, Dallas and Detroit, source tells Y! Sports.

 

 

**Report: Knicks and Raptors have agreed on a trade to send Andrea Bargnani to New York

 

 

**Daryl Morey         @dmorey

Thank you to @cabezadelfino & @Thirty2zero, you both have been great Rockets, players & teammates. Hope there is a chance to reunite

Imo, New Orleans is a legit Playoffs team this upcoming season if they can add Tyreke Evans. That's going to be a young and exciting team: Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans, Anthony Davis similar to a young GSW in the West also.

 

how quickly that franchise is turning around compared to us

Pretty sad if you bring Jefferson in he becomes the best player we have ever had, most likely.

Especially when this franchise's philosophy is building through the draft, and the best player (Big Al) may come from FA.

To clear salary for Tyreke Evans or sign-and-trade w/ Kings, Pelicans expected to try and unload Robin Lopez, league source tells Y!

 

The market for T.Rob was 2 2nd rounders.

So we should be able to send Jeff Adrien's expiring contract and a 2nd rounder for sure.

We must be full court press on Al Jefferson. I thought for sure we would be getting in contact with some of these big SG's. I've seen nothing but AJ stuff.

I think the QO for Hendo ended the conversation for a SG unless we lose him to someone else. And atm we still have Gordon.

**The Wizards and Eric Maynor have agreed to a multi-year deal where he will back up John Wall, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post. The terms of the deal are not yet known.


**@Marc Stein
Mike Dunleavy has gone ahead and verbally committed to sign two-year, $6M deal with Bulls, according to sources with knowledge of the deal


**Andray Blatche has agreed to re-sign with Brooklyn, as first reported by longtime NBA scribe Peter Vecsey. Howard Beck of the New York Times reported that it’s a one-year deal worth $1.4 million, but that won’t make up anywhere near the entirety of Blatche’s salary for next season.


**Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:
Martell Webster is Washington’s “No. 1” priority, the source said, in free agency.

The Wizards also texted their former forward Antawn Jamison, expressing interest Sunday night and would “love” to have him back, a source said. Jamison also is interested in returning to D.C., where he played for from 2004-10.

• Big man Al Jefferson is in Charlotte and will spend a chunk of Tuesday meeting with the Bobcats (via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports).

• The Bobcats also want to re-sign their own free agents Gerald Henderson and Josh McRoberts.


• With Jefferson clearly bolting Utah, the Jazz would like to re-sign Paul Millsap. The two sides met right after free agency opened. Still no deal in place. The Jazz have the right to match any offer Millsap gets from another team.


• Josh Smith will meet with Atlanta on Tuesday.


• @Marc Spears
The Houston Rockets told Atlanta Hawks free-agent forward Josh Smith during their meeting Monday in Los Angeles that they will make him a contract offer if they don’t sign Los Angeles Lakers free-agent center Dwight Howard, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Smith understood the Rockets’ position and wasn’t offended. Smith hasn’t met with the Atlanta Hawks, who could pursue a sign-and-trade deal to get something in return for him.


• Kwame Brown opted in with the Sixers before free agency started, he will be with the team and make $2.9 million next season.


• Shawn Marion opted in with the Mavericks for $9.3 million next year rather than test the free agent market.


• In news that would shock nobody, the Celtics may look to trade Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries


• Reports are Milwaukee, Portland, San Antonio and Atlanta are meeting with Zaza Pachulia, trying to land him.


• The Bucks, Denver, Memphis are making a run at Tony Allen.


• Not long after free agency opened, the Lakers called former Sixer Nick Young.



• The Bulls and Mohammed have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. Reported by Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com


• Report: Raptors looking to flip Marcus Camby to Contender


• Minnesota has 4 year offers out to J.J. Redick and Chase Budinger, sources tell Y! Redick is priority, but Wolves want to sign one of them.—

• Lakers pursuing outside shooters for D'Antoni's system.
