After LeBron James made his decision to reunite with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the dominoes began to fall around the NBA's free-agent market.
While many of the league's premier stars have found new homes—and others have decided to stay put—a whirlwind of rumors involving free agents and potential trades continue to swirl around the Web.
Will we see more big moves in short order? The odds look pretty good, according to some recent gossip.
Here's a look at the latest NBA offseason buzz.
Battle for Lance Stephenson
Stephenson became a free agent this offseason after his rookie contract with the Indiana Pacers expired. Well, after he put up an average of 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game last season, he's in for a big payday.
While the Pacers are still trying to keep Stephenson in the fold, a couple other teams have emerged as favorites to acquire his services, according to Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com:
With Luol Deng off to Miami, options are getting slimmer. Dallas and Charlotte remain real contenders with the Pacers for Lance Stephenson.— Scott Agness (@ScottAgness) July 13, 2014
Cuban said, "We're exploring a lot of options, a lot of different people. Hopefully, the Rockets won't match and we'll have Chandler and that changes what we're able to do, but Lance is certainly on the list."
Well, according to Sam Amick of USA Today, Dallas landed Chandler Parsons on Sunday. Will that make the team the front-runner for Stephenson? We'll find out in short order.
Mike Miller to Denver Imminent?
Although Miller is a journeyman 34-year-old forward, he's being heavily courted by multiple franchises.
Last season with the Memphis Grizzlies, Miller proved he's still a valuable asset as a rotational piece, averaging 7.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 48.1 percent from the floor and 45.9 percent from downtown.
Jeff Goodman of ESPN tweeted the latest on which teams are currently in the mix to acquire his services for the 2014-15 season:
Denver currently the frontrunner to land Mike Miller, source told ESPN. Houston and Cleveland also in mix, but Nuggets offering best deal.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) July 14, 2014
So, will Miller be swayed by a nice contract from Denver, or will there be another factor in play?
Brian Windhorst of ESPN tweeted one particular person who may be able to have an impact on Miller's decision:
LeBron James has spoken with Mike Miller about joining him in Cleveland, source told ESPN.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) July 11, 2014
Denver may be the front-runner in this situation, but we certainly can't count out LeBron's influence.
Latest on Kevin Love
While free-agency rumors continue to swirl, the possibility of a blockbuster trade remains ongoing.
Love's name has been thrown around in regard to trades with multiple teams since the offseason began. One such team is the Cavaliers.
Since Cleveland acquired LeBron, Love is suddenly interested in joining the franchise—with good reason. However, Chris Broussard of ESPN tweeted a potential roadblock for a deal:
Minnesota's current stance: No Wiggins for TWolves, No KLove for Cavs— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 13, 2014
Trading its first-round pick is something Cleveland appeared to be looking to avoid, according to an earlier tweet from Windhorst:
Andrew Wiggins will play in summer league tonight for Cavs. They have no plans to include him in trade talks for Kevin Love, sources said.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) July 11, 2014
Will either side cave in an effort to get a deal done? For now, the Love sweepstakes will continue.
