2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis

Andre Drummond is expected to quickly agree to terms on a new deal with the Pistons.

This comes as no surprise. Drummond really broke out during the 2015-16 season and even received his first All-Star Game nod. The Pistons are looking to lock him down for several years and he will be the cornerstone of the franchise going forward.

Wizards are working out a new deal for Bradley Beal, which should be ready early Friday morning.

This has long been expected and it looks as though Beal will be staying put. The terms of the deal will likely be announced on Friday morning.

Restricted free agent Dion Waiters is "gaining significant traction" from the Kings.

Waiters is one of the more overrated players in the game, so naturally Sacramento would be a likely landing spot. Rajon Rondo is all but gone from the Kings and Waiters could have an opportunity to start if he signs with the team. The other team interested in Waiters' services is the 76ers. Go figure.

Luol Deng's agent is expecting a call from the Timberwolves on Friday morning.

There's a very good chance that Deng will sign with Minnesota given his connection to Tom Thibodeau. Deng doesn't have the same legs under him as he did in his prime, but still managed to average 32.4 minutes in 74 games.

Warriors' meeting with Kevin Durant is scheduled to include Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, coach Steve Kerr, general manager Bob Myers, and owner Joe Lacob.

All hands are on deck for Golden State in their attempt to land the most coveted free agent on the market, Kevin Durant. Golden State is going to have to come with all of the thunder they can as it has been reported that Durant's meeting with OKC went very well on Thursday. We've seen high profile players lured to new teams before, but it would be somewhat shocking if Durant were to bolt. This will be fun to watch over the next several days.

Thunder "continues to probe" for potential trade partners on Enes Kanter to free up money for a run at unrestricted free agent Al Horford.

The Thunder are looking to bolster their team in an attempt to lure Kevin Durant back into the fold. Kanter is a solid role player, but with the loss of Serge Ibaka, OKC could really use a game-changing big man underneath. There is always a ton of movement early on in the NBA's free agent period and you can expect the Thunder to be right in the middle of things.

When asked about the Knicks' pursue of a free-agent center, head coach Jeff Hornacek said, "I feel pretty confident we're going to get a good player."

The Knicks have one of the biggest markets, fan bases, and payrolls in the NBA, so it's no surprise they'd be after a big name free agent. The problem with the Knicks is that they do not currently exhibit a winning culture. Still, money talks and it seems likely that they'll end up with at least one big name player to start alongside Carmelo Anthony.

According to sources close to the Thunder, the team is in "strong position" to re-sign unrestricted free agent Kevin Durant.

Durant still has several meetings lined up in the coming days, but it's been long assumed that OKC would have the advantage in negotiations. It's possible that Durant will sign a one-year deal with the Thunder and then package himself along with Russell Westbrook on the free agent market next summer. This is a fascinating situation on the surface, but could ultimately end without much drama. Stay tuned.
