The Kings are still looking for a power forward. The team inquired about Detroit’s Josh Smith again while in Las Vegas. The Kings aren’t content with their collection of power forwards and would like to move a contract or two to bring in a better complement to Cousins. That would be an athletic shot blocker or a big man who can shoot from long range. Sacramento Bee

Sacramento had made calls about Smith in June, but Detroit never heard an offer that remotely interested them and never seriously engaged in discussions, sources told Yahoo Sports. Since his hiring in the spring, Van Gundy has had productive discussions with Smith and sources say that Smith has been enthusiastic about moving forward with Van Gundy as coach. Yahoo! Sports

Smith could return to a frontcourt that includes forward Greg Monroe, who is a restricted free agent this summer. The Pistons have been willing to engage teams in sign-and-trade scenarios for Monroe, but those talks have gained little traction, sources said. Yahoo! Sports

The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have signed free agent Rodney Stuckey. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released. “Rodney is a very talented player who can create and score in a variety of ways,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “We’re very happy to get a player with his experience and who has made it very clear of his desire to win."
