Vincent Ellis: Source tells Free Press that #Pistons interested in ex players Jonas Jerebko or Anthony Tolliver for 14th roster spot.
Adam Himmelsbach: Hearing Jonas Jerebko’s camp has several free agent meetings scheduled in Vegas in the next few days.
Boston would now need a series of transactions to create cap space for Gordon Hayward. The Celtics would have to pull the qualifying offer on Kelly Olynyk, renounce free agents Jonas Jerebko, James Young, Gerald Green and waive the contracts of Jordan Mickey and Demetrius Jackson (or trade).
How do you feel about becoming a free agent at the end of the season? Jonas Jerebko: I’m just excited to be a Boston Celtic right now, finishing first in the East, and being in the playoffs. Being a free agent is always interesting. I love my time in Boston and I’m not closing any doors. I’m just excited for the summer and see what happens. I’m taking it day by day now with the playoffs, trying not to think about what’s going to happen in the summer. I’m getting in the gym early and staying ready for when my number is called.
Your name was written under the ‘Hybrid Free Agency’ category on the now-famous Orlando Magic board. Did you see it? Jonas Jerebko: My uncle and my dad follow that stuff and they sent it to me. To be honest, I’ve played in the NBA for a while and I’m pretty sure all the teams have those boards. Yes, my name was there but I’m hoping my name is on a few other lists too.
Because of this free agent uncertainty, sources close to Johnson and Jerebko are saying they’ve been advised that the decision on whether to pick up one or both of their options could well come down to the final hours. Johnson is slated to make $12 million next season, and Jerebko is down for $5 million, but the Celts can opt out of those deals by serving notice by midnight Sunday (July 3rd).
He declined to comment on impending free agents Evan Turner (unrestricted), Jared Sullinger (restricted) and Tyler Zeller (restricted) — beyond saying that Turner had a “good year” — and said “nothing has been decided” on the contract options for Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson.

Marc Stein: One trusted source pulled me aside at the @nbagleague Showcase last week in suburban Toronto and insisted that the Cavs will “definitely” swing at least one deal before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. But is there really one deal out there that closes this gap?
With that in mind, the prudent route is to take on players — even if they carry larger salary obligations than the Mavericks would like — provided the Mavericks also can get prime assets in return. “I would say we are looking to use our cap space actively,” Cuban said Monday. “We will take back salary to get picks or guys we think can play.”
For a few fleeting moments, several Clippers dared the Rockets to come farther into the room, sources said. Security and team officials soon converged on the Rockets, pushing them out the door and back toward the visiting locker room, sources said. Ariza was described as the first one through the door, with Paul lingering in the back, witnesses told ESPN.
