Player News
Hawks add Kent Bazemore on two-year deal
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:54 am ET) The Hawks added depth on the wings Friday, with the addition of free agent guard Kent Bazemore on a two-year deal.

Bazemore will reportedly sign for a $4 million over two years, choosing the Hawks over expressed interest from numerous teams. Bazemore finally broke into an NBA rotation last season following a trade from the Warriors to the Lakers, as he averaged 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists in his final 23 games before his season ended with a foot injury.  


Shaun Livingston dealing with offseason toe injury
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) Warriors guard Shaun Livingston will spend part of his offseason recovering from an injury, as reported by the Bay Area News Group.

Livingston suffered a sprained right big toe during his playoff run with the Nets, and has been put in a cast to immobilize the toe. He will wear the cast 3-to-4 weeks before being re-evaluated, but at this point there is no reason to think this injury will impact him when the season begins in five months.

Livingston signed a three-year deal with the Warriors at the start of free agency, likely to serve as the team's backup point guard. He averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds while appearing in a career-high 76 games last season.  


Jazz match Hornets' offer sheet for Gordon Hayward
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) The Jazz officially matched the offer sheet Charlotte signed forward Gordon Hayward to Saturday, according to Yahoo.com.

Hayward, a restricted free agent, signed a four-year deal worth $63 million with the Hornets, but the Jazz exercised their right to match the deal. He is coming off a career-best season, and returns to the site of his first four NBA seasons.

Hayward averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game with the Jazz last season, while started all 77 of the games he appeared in.  


Knicks waive veteran Lamar Odom
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Knicks have parted ways with veteran forward Lamar Odom on Friday, according to a team statement from Phil Jackson.

"Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as an NBA player. We found it necessary to free up the roster spot," Jackson said.

Suns, Kings complete sign-and-trade for Isaiah Thomas
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Suns and Kings have finalized a sign-and-trade deal on a four-year, $27M contract for restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports Friday.

The former 60th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft will be heading to Phoenix, while Sacramento will receive a $7 million trade exception and the rights to forward Alex Oriakhi, the 57th overall pick in 2013, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Thomas averaged career-highs of 20.3 points and 6.3 assists last season for the Kings. He is expected to serve as an ideal third guard to complement Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic in Phoenix, according to CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger.


Jordan Hill signs two-year deal with Lakers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Free agent forward Jordan Hill signed a two-year, $18 million contract to stay with the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports Friday. The deal will give the Lakers a team option in the second year of the contract. Hill averaged 9.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game over 72 games last season. 

Chris Bosh opts to return to Miami for five years
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Though they lost the biggest member of the Big 3, the Heat won't come away from free agency empty-handed.

Yahoo.com reports Friday the Heat have agreed to terms on a five-year deal with center Chris Bosh, who had reportedly been considered a max offer from the Rockets. Bosh will reportedly be paid $118 million over the life of the deal, after joining Dwyane Wade and LeBron James in opting out of their respective deals earlier in free-agency.

Bosh averaged just 16.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in his least productive season since he was a rookie, but will likely see a bigger role moving forward following James' decision to sign in Cleveland.


Nick Young gets four years from the Lakers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Lakers have agreed to a deal to keep guard Nick Young around, according to ESPN.com Friday.

Young put together a career-best season while working on a minimum-salary deal with the Lakers, and he will be rewarded handsomely for it. CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger reports the deal will pay Young $21.5 million over four years, with the fourth year a player option.

Young averaged 17.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in 64 appearances for the Lakers last season. 


John Salmons waived for cap savings
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Hawks officially waived forward John Salmons Friday, after acquiring him in a cap-clearing move at the draft.

Salmons was due a $7 million salary for 2014-15 season, but the Hawks were able to waive him while paying just $1 million of that. He averaged just 5.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 78 games for the Raptors and Kings last season.  


Report: Rockets shipping Jeremy Lin to Lakers
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) In an effort to clear cap space, the Rockets are working to finalize a deal that would send guard Jeremy Lin to Los Angeles. The Lakers would also receive a future first-round pick and other draft considerations but won't take on any salary in return, Yahoo Sports reports.

Lin averaged 12.5 points and 4.5 assists per game in what was mostly a sixth man role for Houston. He'll likely get to start in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Rockets cleared space in the hopes of adding free agent Chris Bosh on a max deal.
