“Today is a very good day because we think the acquisition of Andre, Jae and Solomon will help us with our versatility and create a more balanced roster,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “Today is also a sad day because we lose three very good players who have been part of our family. We wish Justise, James and Dion nothing but the best in the future.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Minnesota has joined the Miami-Memphis deal -- and will trade Gorgui Dieng for James Johnson, league source tells ESPN.
Jeff Siegel: If my math is right, Memphis will have a 940k TPE for Iguodala's salary minus Johnson's incoming number and trade Hill and Crowder for Winslow and Waiters. Miami will trade Winslow and Waiters for Iguodala and Hill, then generate a 7.53M TPE for Johnson minus Crowder.
Jeff Siegel: Miami will have to pay James Johnson his $896,202 trade bonus. That amount will be included on the Grizzlies' books.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Miami has agreed to trade Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and James Johnson to Memphis for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder, league sources tell ESPN. No picks in the deal.

Alex Schiffer: Multiple teams — including Atlanta, Minnesota, Brooklyn, Chicago and Philadelphia — are expected to compete for PJ Tucker in free agency. All are expected to offer the full mid-level/TPMLE exception. He is unlikely to return to Miami, per sources.
Brian Lewis: I’m told there is mutual interest between the #Nets and JaVale McGee. Can also confirm report by @Ian Begley that Brooklyn free agent center Andre Drummond is getting feelers from the #Knicks. #nyk #NBA
Peter Edmiston: From what I am hearing, the Grizzlies’ interest in Joe Ingles is very real. Injury concerns at his age are legitimate but his skillset and experience would make sense for a young, talented team looking to take that next step in the playoffs.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Brett Brown has agreed to return to San Antonio to join Gregg Popovich’s staff as an assistant coach, sources tell ESPN. Brown spent 2007-2013 on Popovich’s staff before becoming the 76ers coach. They’ve maintained a close relationship.
