Rod Beard: The #Pistons waived Cory Joseph, but that was mainly to get off the additional $10.2M in his guarantee. I guess there is a world where he comes back for a smaller number, which would be a win because they need at least a couple of vets.
Keith Langlois: The Pistons have waived Cory Joseph, Deividas Sirvydis and Tyler Cook. Opens some roster spots ahead of free agency.
Shams Charania: The Detroit Pistons are waiving guard Cory Joseph and F/G Deividas Sirvydis, sources tell me and @James Edwards III.
The Sacramento Kings have signed free agent guard Cory Joseph, according to General Manager Vlade Divac.
Sean Cunningham: The Kings were able to free up room for Cory Joseph by rescinding the qualifying offer for Willie Cauley-Stein, league source says. That makes him an unrestricted free agent, granting that wish to the formerly longest tenured Kings player and his agent.
Sean Cunningham: One more note on the Kings landing Cory Joseph... The third year of his deal with Sacramento is partially guaranteed, per league source.
Chris Haynes: Free agent guard Cory Joseph has agreed to a three-year, $37 million deal with the Sacramento Kings, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Free agent guard Cory Joseph has received interest from several teams seeking point-guard help, including Phoenix, Washington, Sacramento and Chicago, league sources said.
The Bulls have an interest in Collison’s backup, Cory Joseph, who earned just under $8 million dollars last season. Joseph could be a starter with the Bulls while 19-year-old Coby White learns the ins and outs of the NBA game, but would he leave a playoff team in Indiana for a contract that averages less than $10 million dollars per season? Probably not. And, that’s the problem the Bulls and most non-playoff teams are facing this summer. They might have to seriously overpay to have a chance at adding players who can help them take a significant step forward next season.
John Gambadoro: Suns not shopping the 6th pick for a veteran point guard as per reports. A few names to keep an eye on in free agency are Cory Joseph, Pat Bev, Darren Collison, TJ McConnell. Look if Suns can come away with a true Power Forward, a starting caliber point guard, a backup big who can shoot and a young point guard to develop (draft) they will be on the right path. There is not unlimited money to spend here!
Adrian Wojnarowski: Indiana’s Cory Joseph will exercise player option on contract for next season and return to Pacers, league source tells ESPN.

Darren Wolfson: Sachin Gupta wants Ben Simmons. The same hurdles remain, but can he now be more creative on three-team scenarios? That still seems to be the key. But make not mistake: Gupta is all in on acquiring Ben Simmons.
Darren Wolfson: (Gupta) is going to work his ass off to try to acquire Ben Simmons and he has full authority to do so. Glen Taylor, Marc Lore, Alex Rodriguez… Trust me, they’ve given him the green light
Tommy Beer: The Knicks announced this morning they have inked Wayne Selden to a deal. He played for NY’s entry in LV summer league. Sources say it is a non-guaranteed training camp contract. The Knicks now have 20 players on their training camp roster, the max allowed by the league. .
But Len and Lopez are gone, leaving Unseld with new arrival Montrezl Harrell, from the Lakers, and slightly-less-new arrival Gafford, who joined the Wizards from the Chicago Bulls at the trade deadline last season and made an immediate impact with his energy, athleticism and ability to slam lobs. Sheppard told The Washington Post in an interview this week that the Wizards would like to add a third center to shore up the spot with Bryant not expected back until winter, but for now, Gafford is Washington’s starter.
The Heat are among the least flexible teams in the league in terms of being able to make in-season moves. After rehauling their roster to sign Lowry and Tucker, extending Butler and signing many players to minimum contracts, they only have three players on the roster that can currently be traded. Theirtrade flexibility will open up in December and January once free agents that were signed become eligible to be traded, but they severely lack tradeable salaries. After their starters, most of whom seem very likely not to be moved, their next highest salary is Tyler Herro at $4.0 million. His salary combined with several of their minimum players will heavily limit the type of return they can get in a trade. They are also just $6.6 million below the hard cap, which is another factor that could hold them back from adding significant money to the payroll.
Darren Wolfson: As for the relationship Gupta with head coach Chris Finch. They were together in Houston. I’m told they have a rock solid relationship. Gupta thinks the world of Finch, Finch thinks the world of Gupta
Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert says the NBA can come knocking on his door any time it wants … telling TMZ Sports he ain’t scared of the league’s “random” drug tests!! Of course, it’s become quite the trend in the Association — you post a jacked pic on Instagram, you get “randomly” hit up for a test.
