Blake Griffin has canceled meetings w/ Phoenix & Denver, I'm told. Barring wildcard team swooping in, sense is a return to Clippers coming.

Plan b might be gone

He's gone, as @saltlover said above^^

5 year/173M max for him from Clippers.

And that basket's name is - Hayward...

Good news for the Clipper pick.  Should be able to be a back-end playoff team for a couple years.

Andre Iguodala set to meet with Sacramento Kings tonight at the start of free agency as well as Spurs, per sources.

Lol at Iggy meeting with the Kings first. He must really be desperate for a pay raise. Probably an implicit threat to Golden State.

Iggy knows how to play. He's been around quite a while.

Also has a meeting with Houston.

Good for Blake.

He's too good to be anybody's back up option. Injury history and all.

Apparently Houston offered Ryan Anderson for Carmelo Anthony.

Knicks "shot it down".

That is absurd that we didn't beat that offer.

So no Griffin, no George , and we haven't even hit midnight.

How is Joe Ingles how's like 29 years old and had one good year, getting a contract for 4 years 60 million?

So with Griffin and George now gone as options, could we trade for Melo as our 4 after signing Hayward? I'm not sure how we'd get enough salary to make it work, though.

I also heard Windhorst say today that Porzingis was still quietly available, but I still doubt his cost is low enough to justify it.

Whatever the case, we're now needing a new plan for a starting 4 next year. I'm not sure where it's going to come from either.

I doubt porzingis is available now that Jackson was fired.
