Draymond Green a long shot for Pistons

A person with firsthand knowledge of the Pistons’ off-season plans said signing Green is not realistic because they expect the Warriors, playing in the NBA Finals and working for a new arena, to match any offer sheet. The person, not publicly authorized to discuss the team’s plans, said that the Pistons do not want to tie up salary cap space for 72 hours – the time allotted the Warriors to match any offer – when more easily obtainable free agents might be available.

Tim MacMahon: A source said C Jaleel Cousins, DeMarcus’ younger brother, is expected to join the D-League Texas Legends if he clears waivers following his release from the Mavs. All of the Mavs’ cuts are open to joining the team’s D-League affiliate with the exception of G Kyle Collinsworth, who plans to play overseas. However, there is a decent possibility that final cut Jonathan Gibson gets claimed by another NBA team.
