LATEST HOOPSHYPE VIDEOS
The injury-hit Indiana Pacers are in the process of signing free-agent guard Gal Mekel, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that Mekel, who's in his second NBA season and ranks as one of Israel's two exports in the league alongside Sacramento's Omri Casspi, also drew interest from Oklahoma City since his release by the Dallas Mavericks last week.

Who are some FA point guards the Thunder could look at signing? Anthony Slater: Gal Mekel has been rumored. Was recently with the Mavs before getting released after they signed J.J. Barea. Ish Smith is another option. But my guess: Michael Jenkins. He was in camp with OKC and played relatively well when given the opportunity. He knows the system, is comfortable with the team and can shoot it a little bit. Nobody they bring in is gonna be groundbreaking, so my guess is they go with someone they are familiar with. Oklahoman
David 'Dubi' Pick: Gal Mekel is among pool of top free agent PGs along with Will Bynum and Ish Smith. Either could land deal with OKC. Twitter @IAmDPick
Mark Cuban on J.J. Barea: “If we can just get back Jet (Jason Terry) we’ll be set. J.J. became available and they got a hold of us and said, ‘Look, we think we’re going to get waived. Would you guys have an interest in him coming back?’ I talked to coach, talked to Donny, and it wasn’t an easy decision because we really like Gal. He improved dramatically and we think he’s got a real spot in this league but coach was like, ‘Look, being able to go small with J.J., with Raymond out initially, it’ll be a good compliment.’ So ‘who let the baby on the court’ is back.” Dallas Morning News
Dwain Price: JJ Barea has cleared waivers and will sign with the #Mavs for $1.31 million. The Mavs will waive Gal Mekel to make room for Barea. Twitter @DwainPrice
