Nets forward Mirza Teletovic has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a bilateral pulmonary embolus (multiple blood clots in the lungs), according to the team. Teletovic left last night’s game against the Clippers with shortness of breath, and was taken to a Los Angeles hospital. Tests there revealed the diagnosis. Teletovic will remain hospitalized in Los Angeles, receiving treatment and further testing, and won’t return to New York until he’s cleared to travel.

Clippers executives touched on a variety of topics during the three-hour meeting, including increased marketing opportunities for a player who has lagged in that department behind teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, star pitchmen for several national brands. Coach Doc Rivers also addressed tensions between Paul and Jordan that have given the center pause about his desire to continue playing for the only NBA team he has known in his seven professional seasons. A person close to Jordan who attended the meeting described the Clippers’ presentation as “tight,” saying “they had their stuff together.”

Matthews was seriously considering the Sacramento Kings, who met with him on Thursday and are known to have offered a four-year deal worth approximately $65 million. Because the Mavericks are still pursuing free agent big men like LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan, Matthews’ salary has not yet been finalized. Clearly, however, he felt good enough about the Dallas situation to leave some staggering money on the table in Sacramento.

Jordan had already entered the free-agency period giving the Clippers “a slight edge,” according to a league source familiar with his thinking, for reasons including the team’s recent success, his continual development and close relationship with Rivers. It could help that Jordan would make $108 million through five years by re-signing with the Clippers,as opposed to the four-year, $80 million deal he would receive elsewhere. Those around Jordan also downplayed the reported tension between him and Chris Paul over both his role and poor foul shooting.

Free agent guard Wes Matthews spurned a large offer from the Sacramento Kings late Thursday night to accept a four-year offer from the Dallas Mavericks, according to a league source. The move is a major deal for a player coming off a torn Achilles’ injury that ended his season with the Trail Blazers before the start of last season’s playoffs. The agreement gives the Mavericks a boost as they hope to sign free agent center DeAndre Jordan away from the Los Angeles Clippers.

It’s the story of every summer, and it’s not one that sits well with Duke Ihenacho, the former Bronco and current Redskins safety. Ihenacho took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out the NFL for its contracts that are not fully guaranteed, part of the collective bargaining agreement that was ratified by the NFL Players Association. Ihenacho’s take: Duke Ihenacho: All this guaranteed money NBA throwing. Meanwhile the NFL, which generates the most money wont even make the league minimum $1M. Yes $1M minimum. That means every single player’s salary in the NFL should start there. Highest risk of injury..brain trauma, richest league
