Update: Coco Crisp was scheduled to get an MRI on his stiff neck Friday, after it did not respond to treatment Thursday.
Obviously this isn't a very positive update as an MRI means the team is looking for damage to the vertebrae that may not appear on a normal x-ray. You can consider Crisp day-to-day still because it's early, but you'll have to pay close attention for updates which should come sooner than later. Make sure that you have a contingency plan in place should Crisp be out for any real length of time. Craig Gentry will likely be the fill-in at center for the A's. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings.
There was some late buzz that Rondo could join the Lakers, but instead he'll sign with the Sacramento Kings for a one-year, $10 million deal. Rondo's season fell apart in 2014 after being traded to Dallas, but expectations will still be high for the point guard due to his track record. That being said, last year's meltdown for Rondo was jarring, as his assists per game fell from 10.8 to 6.5, and his rebounds went from 7.5 to 4.5 per game. Hopefully Rondo will become better acclimated with his team in Dallas, as if he can get it together, Rondo could be a key piece in his new team's playoff bid. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Patrick Beverley has agreed to a four-year deal with the Rockets.
The 26-year old will return to Houston after spending his first three seasons with the team, averaging 8.9 points, 3 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game over his tenure. Last season was his best as a professional, and Beverley will look to earn an expanded role in the backcourt next season after averaging 30.8 minutes last season. The four-year deal is worth $25 million. Analysis: Ben Diamond
