Cavs forward Alonzo Gee inadvertently kneed Durant in the back while driving to the basket with 6:04 left in the third quarter, causing Durant to briefly leave the game two minutes later. After returning to the bench moments later, Durant returned to the game with 9:55 remaining in the fourth and finished the game. Despite what appeared to be extreme discomfort, Durant downplayed the injury when asked about it. “If I can play, I'm all right,” Durant said. “I was good. I came (back) in and played so that's all that matters.” Oklahoman

"I actually was trying to talk to him," Gee said, "but it wasn't working." Indeed, nothing Gee tried bothered Pierce in the least as the Celtics' veteran forward, who has torched the Cavs so many times in the regular season and the playoffs, went off for a season-high 40 points to lead the Celtics to a 103-91 victory. Pierce made 13 of 16 shots, six of seven 3-pointers as the Celtics snapped a three-game losing streak to improve to 13-12. "I was like, 'Man calm down a little bit,'" Gee said with a smile. "He said, 'I'm just trying to make you better.' "It's all good though. He played a great game and made a lot of shots." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Chris Paul asked Byron Scott to stop using Alonzo Gee on him defensively. Scott made that shocking revelation today after practice. He has been calling Gee one of the league's best defenders for a few days and is trying to prove it by using him to defend multiple positions. Apparently at some point during Monday's Cavs win over the Clippers, Paul jogged by Scott and told him "take him off me" and wanted Kyrie Irving to defend him instead. "Why you got him guarding me? Let the young fella guard me," Paul told Scott. "I said, 'Young fella has guarded you. He said, 'Well you threw me in the fire, made me guard all those guys.'" Sulia

If a deal is reached with Gee, source says, it will likely be closer to training camp in late September. But, it appears, Cavs will keep Casspi. Much of that depends on Casspi, and whether or not he wants to return overseas. Otherwise, "he's not available" for other NBA teams. Sulia

The deal doesn't preclude the Cavs from trying to re-sign swingman Alonzo Gee. The restricted free agent has yet to find a deal this summer. If the Cavs can't sign Gee to a multiyear deal, he could sign his $2.7 million qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. News-Herald

Alonzo Gee has not gotten any offers from other teams. It's a shame, too, since he's worked so hard since coming to the #Cavaliers to reshape his game. He's what's right about the league. Many expect him to sign the $2.7 million qualifying offer and become UFA next summer. Sulia

If Alonzo Gee is re-signed, he'll probably start at small forward. First-round pick Dion Waiters will be given every opportunity to start at 2. Miles could get a lot of minutes as the backup at 2 and 3, maybe as much as 25 minutes. Sulia

Gee, a restricted free agent, is waiting for the Cavs to make an offer. If they don't, Gee could sign the qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. News-Herald

Talks between #Cavs and Alonzo Gee remain slow, but ongoing. Talked today with Gee's agent, Andre Buck, who didn't rule out accepting Cavs qualifying offer. “I don’t see accepting the qualifying offer as a bad option for Alonzo,” Buck said. “If that’s the best option, we’ll exercise that option. There’s nothing wrong with being an unrestricted free agent next year.” Sulia
