There are some intriguing players who will sign extensions or become free agents next summer, such as Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson, Charlotte’s Kemba Walker, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard, Orlando’s Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris, Faried, Oklahoma City’s Reggie Jackson, Miami’s Norris Cole, and Chicago’s Jimmy Butler. The Celtics don’t have to worry about such four-year contract issues. That was the year they acquired JaJuan Johnson on draft night for MarShon Brooks. Johnson never stuck in the NBA and is now playing for Besiktas in the Turkish League. Brooks, meanwhile, has signed with Emporio Armani Milano of the Italian League. Boston Globe

There are European players in the NBA who had a long career and were constantly moving from team to team and others who were identified with only one franchise. What’s you dream? Nikola Vucevic: “If everything goes as I hope they will, it will be a great pleasure and joy to stay for many years in Orlando. We have a young team, full of potential and ambitions. We have a great support by our fans and our city. Our owner is great, the general manager and the coach, everyone. For me everything is perfect in Orlando.
