2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires

Bucks waived F Damien Inglis.

Inglis, who was the first pick of the second round in last year's NBA draft, played in just 20 games for the Bucks last year. With the Bucks drafting two new rookies, they needed to make roster space for them, which leaves Inglis and Johnny O'Bryant out in the cold. Inglis played just 7.8 minutes per game and averaged 1.8 points per game for Milwaukee in 2015.

Bucks waived F Johnny O'Bryant.

O'Bryant, who was a second round pick for the Bucks back in 2014, has been waived after appearing in 100 games over the last two seasons. The 23-year-old LSU product averaged just 3 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game in 13 minutes played last season.

The Detroit Pistons are nearing a deal to send guard Jodie Meeks to the Orlando Magic.

The Magic will be sending a 2019 second round pick to the Pistons in exchange for Meeks, who played in just three games for the Pistons last season. Meeks is signed through this upcoming season, and is scheduled to make 6.54 million dollars. This trade shouldn't come as much of a surprise as it was pretty clear that the Pistons were shopping Meeks and that he didn't really fit into the team's plans moving forward.

Kevin Durant has not expanded his list of teams with whom he’ll take meetings.

David Aldridge tweeted out Durant hadn't expanded his list of teams, which means that Durant is not currently considering the Atlanta Hawks. The former MVP will take meetings with the Celtics, Heat, Clippers, Warriors, Spurs, and Thunder over the next week or-so. There's rumors that he could meet with the Knicks, but it's expected that he's going to re-sign with the Thunder for one year and then hit the free agent market next year when the cap goes up significantly.

Trail Blazers extended qualifying offers to Meyers Leonard, Maurice Harkless and Allen Crabbe, ensuring the three players will be restricted free agents beginning July 1.

By extending qualifiers the Blazers have the right to match any offer that either of the three players receives on the free agent market. Leonard averaged 8.1 points per game and 5.1 rebounds per game before going down with a shoulder injury that required surgery. Moe Harkless averaged 6.4 points per game and 3.6 points per game but played well for Portland down the stretch and in the playoffs. Allen Crabbe averaged 10.3 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game and averaged 26 minutes a game for Portland last season.

Jamal Crawford to talk with the Clippers, New York, Orlando, Dallas, Miami when free agency starts, per source.

The reigning sixth man of the year seems to have plenty of teams interested in procuring his services, which makes sense seeing that he averaged 14.2 points per game coming off the bench last season. The 36-year-old could potentially be leaning towards a return to the Knicks, where he played for four years earlier in his career. Crawford said that he really enjoyed his time in New York, but he's keeping his options open for the time being. The Clippers can offer him the most money due to the fact that they have his Bird Rights, but it looks like he could be leaving Los Angeles.

Kevin Durant will meet with the Thunder on Thursday.

Durant is expected to meet with the Clippers, Spurs, Thunder, Heat and Celtics this this weekend and it looks like his current/former team is going to get the first chance to pitch him a reason to stay in OKC. Of course the biggest asset that OKC has is the ability to offer him more money on a max deal than any other team can due to the CBA.

Warriors are showing interest in Joakim Noah.

Noah is going to be a popular target this offseason as he offers the rebound, defensive presence and passing ability that few bigs in the NBA do. He would be an interesting choice for the Warriors seeing as they have Marcin Gortat and Noah would likely rather go somewhere that he would be the unquestioned starter at center.

Paul Pierce is reportedly still undecided on his future

We have heard that he will make a decision within the next few weeks but nothing new to report. Whether he does or does not retire, Pierce was basically a non-factor in the fantasy hoops world during the 2015-16 season. The 38-year-old veteran had career-lows in all categories averaging just 6.1 points, 2.7 boards, 1.0 assist and 1.1 triples per game.

Magic have extended a qualifying offer to Evan Fournier.

The Magic are planning to match any offer that restricted free agent Evan Fournier receives this summer according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders. We also heard Magic GM Ryan Hennigan say that re-signing Fournier will be one of Orlando's top priorities this summer especially after he traded Victor Oladipo on draft night. Fournier averaged 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.0 treys last season. He should have a lot more fantasy value this season with Oladipo now in Oklahoma City.
