So Kevin Garnett's long-time teammate Paul Pierce has decided to go his own way, signing a two-year, $11 million deal with Washington on Saturday. Now the question around Brooklyn is whether KG will be back.

At 38, Garnett is due to earn $12 million if he plays in 2014-15, which is enough for just about anyone to delay thoughts of retirement. Will that be the case with KG?
Having three highly regarded point guards on its roster (Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe, Tyler Ennis) didn't stop the Phoenix Suns from going out and pursuing Isaiah Thomas, who joins the Suns via sign-and-trade with Sacramento and now has a new four-year, $27 million deal.

"We think Isaiah was one of the most efficient scorers in the league last year," Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough told The Arizona Republic on Saturday. "We feel like the strength of our team is the backcourt. We feel like this move has made us even stronger in the backcourt."

But by adding Thomas to an already crowded backcourt, the Suns may have set themselves up for further moves in the not-too-distant future. Here's ESPN Insider Kevin Pelton with more on that.

As the basketball world's collective head continues to spin following the news of LeBron James' return to Cleveland, it's difficult to avoid looking ahead.

If the Cavs keep the current roster in place, they'll have four players who were No. 1 overall picks (LeBron, Kyrie Irving, Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett) and two others who were top five picks (Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters). And that doesn't even include Anderson Varejao.

But all the talk is Kevin Love, and what Cleveland has to do to get him. Is including Wiggins and his attractive rookie contract a must as far as Minnesota is concerned? Here's the latest.

Knicks plan to land Gasol brothers?

Phil Jackson wants to re-sign Carmelo Anthony and then follow that up by getting Pau Gasol to commit to the New York Knicks. Jackson has competition for both as Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls or Los Angeles Lakers, while the Lakers, Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder are options for Gasol.
While Pau is the target in 2014, Jackson and head coach Derek Fisher will likely go after his bother in 2015, reports the New York Post.

Marc Berman writes: "The Post reported one reason Anthony is close to re-signing is having a shot at the 34-year-old Gasol, who then could recruit his brother, Marc Gasol. The Memphis center is a free agent in 2015 when the Knicks should have plenty of cap space."

Marc Gasol has spent a lot of years in Memphis, but he might be willing to leave in 2015 with a chance to play with his brother whether it's in New York with the Knicks, or in LA with the Lakers. Of course the Gasol brothers won't have a chance to play together next year if Pau signs with Oklahoma City or Chicago. Pau could always sign with the Memphis Grizzlies, but that is an unlikely scenario.
