The big news is that Ariza may leave the Lakers, as linked by ryebreadraz below, and here:

  • Sources: Trevor Ariza leaning toward leaving Los Angeles Lakers - ESPN
    The 24-year-old swingman, who played a key role in the Lakers' run to their 15th NBA championship, is on the verge of leaving the club, sources close to the situation said on Wednesday. With at least five teams pursuing Ariza, the Lakers are currently unwilling to pay him more than the $5.6 million mid-level exception. "They're letting him go," one of the sources said.

This has prompted rumors of the Lakers pursuing Artest, and vice versa

  • Is Ron-Ron really coming? - Lakers blog -
    If you checked one Twitter account supposedly belonging to Ron Artest, the tempermental swingman left Houston and was headed to either L.A. His messages are cryptic, but suggestive. “THANKS A LOT HOUSTON :) I HAD A LOT OF FUN.”

Not many other links to report on, the Pistons signed Gordon and Charlie V, the Blazers want Hedo, and a bunch of rumors. Where will Sheed end up?

  • David Lee, Paul Millsap may change teams in NBA free agency - Scott Howard-Cooper -
    NBA executives have never faced a group of restricted free agents like this before. Unrestricted, sure, while bracing for next July and the unrestricteds who will prompt the mother of all spending sprees, nay, the octomom of all spending sprees. But for the restricteds, who mostly negotiate aware that the original team will match any reasonable offer sheet, this is the unique moment.
