2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires

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.

Jarrett Jack reportedly will not return to the Nets.

The Nets still do have until June 30 to make their final decision but it looks like they are ready to move on. Jack would have been owed $6.3 million but that money was non-guaranteed. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported that New Jersey has been shopping the point guard but if they don't get an offer they like, they'll waive him. Jack is now 32 years old but coming off of a very nice season but returning from a torn right ACL and meniscus is not something teams want to deal with. It is reported that he'll be ready for training camp and should generate interest around the league if he's waived. Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead would be the remaining point guards in New Jersey, if Jack is released.

76ers have picked up the fourth-year team option on Hollis Thompson.

The 76ers will pick up Thompson's team option at $1.01 million for the 2016-17 season. He averaged 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and shot nearly 40 percent from the field. Thompson will continue to be a nice depth piece for Philadelphia going forward and should not be counted on in Fantasy Basketball leagues this season.

Hawks picked up their team option on Mike Muscala Wednesday.

The big man from Bucknell played in just 60 games for the Hawks during the 2015-16 season. The Hawks feel they can get more than 3.3 points and two rebounds a game from the center. The option will only cost Atlanta $1.01 million.

Salah Mejri will undergo knee surgery on Thursday.

The procedure is said to be minor according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, "a minor cleaning," which means arthroscopic knee surgery. Mejri will not be able to play for his homeland of Tunisia at the Olympics, but everyone expects him to make a full recovery by training camp.

Jazz have made Trey Burke available for trade.

The Jazz are loaded at the point guard position so they would be trading from strength if they do indeed move Burke. The minutes just won’t be there for Burke so if they can add more depth at the other positions this makes sense. Burke averaged 10.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 21 minutes per game.
