Alex Gordon is considering pushing his free-agency a year.
Gordon can become a free-agent following the 2015 season, but has indicated he might accept his $13.25 million player option for 2016. The move would come as a surprise.
It's always a surprise when a player opts not to become a free agent, but considering Gordon has had a bit of a down year this season, unless he completely turns things around in September and helps lead the Royals through a big push into the playoffs, it might be the wise move for him if he believes that A. he simply wants to stay in Kansas City or B. he feels that he can do better statistically and thus command more money on the open market. Obviously he doesn't have to make the decision immediately, so we'll see how the end of the season goes.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yunel Escobar left Monday's game with hamstring tightness.
Dan Uggla replaced Escobar in this contest and Escobar should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Escobar was 1-for-2 before exiting the game and Dan Uggla would be in a position to receive extra playing time if Escobar were to miss any extended period of time. Monitor this situation moving forward, seeing as Escobar has become a valuable fantast asset in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
Mo Williams has agreed to a two-year, $4.3 million deal with the Cavaliers.
Williams averaged 14.2 points and 6.2 assists in 29.1 minutes for the Timberwolves and Hornets last season. Williams will be able to get some open threes alongside LeBron James, but will be expected to score off the bench. The Cavaliers are attempting to stack this roster to bring a title to Cleveland next season, under the tutelage of King James and a little bit of coach David Blatt. Analysis: Colby Conway
