Barry Jackson: Heat, which must sign a player by Thursday, has been in conversations with veteran NBA center Dewayne Dedmon, among others, per source. @5ReasonsSports previously mentioned Dedmon in connection with Heat
As for whom that is, a new name is already in the mix: On Friday, Justin Patton was signed to a two-way deal, sources told The Athletic (HoopsHype was first to report). The Rockets will continue to keep an eye on the free-agent market as well, with names like Dewayne Dedmon and Ersan Ilyasova being of interest. But the position will remain something of a question mark until Wood returns. The only certainty is that Cousins won’t be the answer.

Dedmon didn’t close the door on a possible return to the Spurs, but his market could increase to roughly $8-10 million per season, league sources told the Express-News.
The 27-year-old center will notify the Spurs he intends to decline his $3 million player option next season, becoming an unrestricted free agent on July 1. “Just to see what else is out there,” Dedmon told the Express-News. “I came in with a goal and played basketball to the best of my ability. I feel like there is some more money out there than ($3 million).”
He admitted to feeling frustration about not playing, but he made the best of the situation. “Everybody wants to play, but it’s whatever the coaches decide to do,” said Dedmon. “I just want to win, be a teammate for my team, cheer everybody on and try to bring as much energy as I can whether I’m playing or not playing.”
Sources close to Dedmon told the Express-News he would be interested in returning to San Antonio, but would like to see his worth on the free agent market, as he could earn more than his $3 million salary for next season. Forward David Lee also has a deadline approaching (June 30) to decide if he’ll opt-in for next season. Lee’s option is worth $1.6 million.

Former NBA star Chris Webber has finally been elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, several sources told ESPN’s The Undefeated. Webber will be announced as a member of the Class of 2021 along with Ben Wallace and Paul Pierce on Sunday, sources said.
Anthony Slater: It’s the first Steph Curry vs Ja Morant matchup ever tomorrow. Curry on Morant: “Super athletic. Super crafty. Very confident. Just seems like a gamer who loves competition. We had some fun on social media back in the day.” pic.twitter.com/e4ChLz3BSa
Before the Pacers game, Vogel let it be known that he doesn’t intend to manipulate his lineup to end up with a lower seeding against a preferable opponent. “My opinion is, win as many games as you can and let the seeds fall where they may and be unafraid of any matchup,” he said. “I believe in the basketball gods.” Davis — who put up 28 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals — shared the same steely eyed resolve, even though L.A. is just 13-16 since March 20, even with its current win streak. “We’re ready to play whatever game,” he said.
Damian Lillard: A shooting foul gets challenged… then overturned and instead of a jump ball (like every other time this happens ) you give the offensive team the ball back 🤔 Dylan Mickanen: This is what Dame is referring to btw. The call was reversed via a challenge but the NBA ruled Davis had possession so it was Lakers ball rather than a jump ball. LeBron hit a 3-pointer eight seconds later.
Ian Begley: The Knicks can clinch the No. 4 seed and a first-round matchup with the Hawks if they beat Boston tomorrow afternoon. If New York loses to Boston tomorrow and the Hawks and Heat win their games on Sunday night, the Knicks would finish 6th in the East.
The third-seeded Bucks kept the pressure on the Nets by beating the Heat on Saturday night. But though the Nets lost the season tiebreaker to Milwaukee, they still lead the Bucks by a game and can earn the No. 2 seed — something they finally admit is a major goal. “Yeah, I think so. We just have one game to win, and we control our own destiny as far as the seedings go. We think that’s positive,” coach Steve Nash said before the Nets’ 105-91 win over the Bulls. “If we can win that game, it’s much better being the second seed. “It’s a little advantage we can create, and it just comes down to concentration and trying to close this deal [Sunday]. Yeah, we definitely want it.”
Lonzo Ball, along with multiple teammates, will miss the New Orleans Pelicans’ regular season finale against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday evening. Ball will miss the game with a right thumb sprain, the third straight game he’ll miss to end the season. Along with Ball, Steven Adams (right MTP sprain), Josh Hart (right thumb surgery), Brandon Ingram (left ankle sprain) and Zion Williamson (left hand fracture) all will be out as well on the night. It will be the third straight game that group of five players will miss with the Pelicans losing each of those games.
