In case you’ve been under a rock so far today, LeBron James announced he is heading back home to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers. As soon as that news broke, all the major free agency dominoes began to fall. What follows is a quick roundup of what we know so far.
The 2014 NBA Draft lottery will be held Tuesday night and the results will be broadcast on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET. To get you primed and ready for the most anticipated draft lottery in years we’ve put together the odds for each of the 14 lottery teams.

On Thursday night, Flip Saunders confirmed that he has signed a long-term contract to become the president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Saunders will also hold a minority ownership stake in the team.

Dan Gilbert sent his 14-year old son Nick to represent the Cavs because he said Nick is the luckiest person he knows. This turned out to be true. The Cavs headed into the lottery with two picks and came out with both of them in the top five.
