Free-agent swingman Kent Bazemore has agreed to terms on a new deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to sources close to the process. Sources said the in-demand Bazemore -- pursued by the reigning champion San Antonio Spurs and several other teams -- will sign a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $4 million from the Hawks. After playing sparingly in his first season and a half in the league, Bazemore emerged as a sleeper free agent following a solid finish to the 2013-14 campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers. ESPN.com

Sources told ESPN.com that Gasol is giving strong consideration to signing with defending champion San Antonio -- despite the Spurs' limited financial resources with such a deep roster -- in the event that the Bulls can't strike a sign-and-trade arrangement with the Lakers for Gasol. ESPN.com

Oklahoma City has been pursuing Gasol as hard as anyone, but sources indicated Friday that the Spurs have joined the Bulls ahead of the Thunder in Gasol's pecking order. ESPN.com

According to Parker, he’s had conversations with Gasol about joining the Spurs, and even if Gasol didn’t choose San Antonio, it wouldn’t be an issue amongst their friendship. “I’ve talked to Pau (Gasol) and I said I would love to play with him someday. Luckily, you have many options to play. Lakers are a great choice, but everyone wants to play with Pau, because it is one of the best players in the world, “he replied when asked about a possible interest in hiring the Catalan Spurs player. “If you choose not to play with us (Spurs), will continue to be my friend and dinner with a glass of good wine,” he added.

Gasol has not informed the Lakers of his plan. But the Lakers are mindful that Gasol has stated he wants to play for a championship caliber team and has entertained a vast amount of interest from Miami, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Chicago and New York. It is not currently clear which scenarios the Lakers would entertain a sign-and-trade with Gasol, who made $19.3 million last season. But in general terms, the Lakers want to ensure they receive a quality player in return, if not more, and that their contract does not compromise their financial flexibility both in length and size of the contract.
