NBA Rumors for Monday, July 6

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 5:00 p.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.

nba rumors Milwaukee Bucks president Peter Feigin told Wisconsin lawmakers Monday that time was of the essence in approving $250 million in public funding for the proposed arena in downtown Milwaukee or the NBA will move the team to another city. Milwaukee Business Journal

At an informational hearing held by the state Legislature's Joint Finance Committee, Feigin said the Bucks owners' purchase agreement for the team includes a provision that construction of a new arena start in 2015. If that does not occur, he said the NBA will buy back the team for a $25 million profit and move them to "Las Vegas or Seattle." Milwaukee Business Journal

Feigin said the team needed to start construction by October or November to avoid the NBA starting a process of seeking buyers for the team. The team's lease at the BMO Harris Bradley Center expires in 2017, he said. Milwaukee Business Journal

nba rumors The Los Angeles Lakers continued to fill out their roster through free agency by reaching an agreement with Boston Celtics power forward Brandon Bass, a source told Terms were not disclosed and are dependent on what other roster moves the Lakers make once players are able to sign contracts starting on Thursday.

Since that time, L.A. has made progress on a deal to acquire 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert and his $15.5 million expiring contract from the Indiana Pacers, agreed to a reported three-year, $21 million contract with sixth man of the year Lou Williams and reached an accord with Bass.

nba rumors The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract with free-agent guard Lou Williams, sources told

Williams wasn't sure whether he would be the same player after tearing his ACL in January 2013. But after being traded by the Atlanta Hawks to Toronto last summer, Williams was a key component to the Raptors' run to the Atlantic Division title and the East's fourth-best record (49-33).

"He finished a lot of games for us and helped us win a lot of games," Raptors teammate DeMar DeRozan said.

nba rumors The Indiana Pacers continued shaping their roster on Sunday by working a deal with in-house free agent Rodney Stuckey. The team and Stuckey have agreed on a three-year deal worth $21 million with a player option the third year, according to his agent. Indianapolis Star

According to Zamorano, Stuckey had entertained "at least four offers" from other teams. Several reports had indicted interest from Washington, Houston and Cleveland. Indianapolis Star

nba rumors The Utah Jazz have lost their former NBA slam dunk champion. A free agent forward, Jeremy Evans announced via Twitter on Sunday afternoon that he had reached a deal to join the Mavericks. According to an ESPN report, the deal is for two years at the league minimum. Salt Lake Tribune

For Evans, the move to Dallas has to be a welcomed one, because he will have a chance to play. There are minutes available with the Mavs behind Dirk Nowitzki and DeAndre Jordan. Evans proved he can make a corner 3-pointer and that he can shoot out to 18 feet. He worked hard with the Jazz and endeared himself to the community with his work in Junior Jazz. Evans leaves behind many strong relationships, especially his close friendship with star small forward Gordon Hayward. Salt Lake Tribune

nba rumors The possibility of adding [Jason] Terry was the most intriguing news on a Sunday that ended up being pretty busy for the Mavericks. They agreed to a two-year contract (no options) with Jeremy Evans, who has played his first five seasons with Utah. Evans was a second-round pick out of Arkansas in the 2010 draft (55th overall) and has played sparingly for the Jazz. But if you extrapolate his numbers, he has averaged 12.2 points and 9.6 rebounds per 36 minutes played. Dallas Morning News

Meanwhile, the Mavericks remain in a strong position to re-sign guard J.J. Barea, who rejoined the team last season on a veteranís minimum deal. Barea, like Terry, was a vital cog on the championship team in 2011. Dallas Morning News

Barea has other options, most notably with the Miami Heat. But a source said that the Mavericks believe it is trending in a good direction and that Barea could be set to sign for the cap-room exception of $2.8-million and likely would get at least a two-year deal, with the possibility of a three-year agreement with a player option for that third season. Dallas Morning News

nba rumors Pistons guard Reggie Jackson talked for a long time with former Thunder teammate Kevin Durant during the game. The joke around the gym was Jackson trying to talk Durant into becoming a Piston when he becomes a free agent after next season. ... Spencer Dinwiddie ran the offense better but he continues to struggle. Dinwiddie had six assists but was 1-for-6 from the field and finished with six points and six turnovers. Detroit News

Pistons: Official word came back that forward Quincy Miller wonít play in any of the five summer league games and is out 4-6 weeks with a broken nose and orbital floor fracture and right eye corneal abrasion. That is the bad news. The good news is he wonít require surgery. Miller played in four games with the Pistons this season after he was initially signed to a 10-day contract in February. He has played in 102 NBA games with Denver, Sacramento and Detroit. Detroit News
