nba rumors The positive feelings between Joakim Noah and the Knicks are mutual. According to an NBA source, the Knicks have “a very high interest” in signing Noah to play center in a frontcourt that would feature Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Another NBA source said Noah is eager for at least a sitdown with the Knicks. NY Post

As The Post reported, Noah, a New York City product, was in town over the weekend and went clubbing with Rose on Thursday night. Rose confirmed at his press conference Friday he was already in the process of recruiting Noah. NY Post

A report the Wizards were planning to offer Noah the max was shot down, but they should have interest. The Chicago Sun-Times reported Sunday money isn’t the No. 1 priority for Noah. NY Post

The Vertical reported six teams — Warriors, Heat, Celtics, Clippers, Spurs and Thunder — will meet with Durant on July 1. NY Post

nba rumors Featuring six Olympic and/or FIBA World Cup gold medalists, USA Basketball unveiled its official 12-man 2016 U.S. Olympic Men's Basketball Team.

With his selection to the 2016 Olympic Team, three-time Olympic medalist Anthony becomes the first United States male basketball player selected to four Olympic teams. InsideHoops

EARLY MORNING NBA RUMORS PAGE STORIES

nba rumors While the Oklahoman had recently broken down the contenders for Durant’s services and didn’t even put the Knicks on the list — ranking them behind “the delusional pipe-dreamers” category — USA Today reported Saturday night that the deal for Derrick Rose and development of Kristaps Porzingis have led to Durant seeing the Knicks in a more favorable light. NY Post

Teams can officially start talking to free agents at 12:01 a.m. on July 1, and can formally sign them on July 7. Durant will be the top player on the market, and is expected to decide fairly quickly, before a scheduled July 9 trip to Europe. NY Post

Oklahoma City and Golden State are considered the front-runners. If he stays with the Thunder on a one-year max and then follows with a full max deal, Durant could bank $229.5 million over the next six seasons, while other teams can offer him “just” $177.2 million over the next five. NY Post

Nothing is official yet when it comes to Kevin Durant in regards to where he'll play next season, but the Wizards are on the outside looking in while the forward surveys his options outside of the Oklahoma City Thunder. CSN Bay Area

Former Post basketball writer Peter Vecsey, on WFAN, said Anthony and Durant were at a dinner together Friday. The two, having grown up in the Baltimore/Washington area, have known each other for a long time. The Knicks haven’t gotten confirmation on a Durant meeting as of yet as the star forward is set to begin his much-ballyhooed free agency. NY Post

nba rumors A few of OKC's young pieces are expected to compete: Cameron Payne, Josh Huestis and Mitch McGary. But perhaps the Thunder's most anticipated young talent, rookie Domantas Sabonis, won't be in Orlando for summer league, The Oklahoman has learned. But it's for good reason. Oklahoman

Sabonis, the 11th overall pick acquired in the Serge Ibaka trade, will focus on competing for his home country of Lithuania in the summer Olympics. His father, Hall of Famer Arvydas Sabonis, is the president of the Lithanian Basketball Federation. Oklahoman

nba rumors The summer league roster for the Utah Jazz is filling up and beginning to take shape. League sources, on Sunday, confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune that two more players will be coming to SLC in the next week. Those guys are 6-foot-7 small forward J.J. O’Brien and seven-footer Bangaly Fofana, who played this season overseas. Salt Lake Tribune

The Jazz are looking for another wing to add to their roster this offseason. O’Brien’s strength is his ability to play multiple positions, offensively and defensively. He’s someone who may have an opportunity to stick at the end of the roster, if he plays well. Salt Lake Tribune

nba rumors Kyrie Irving and Harrison Barnes accepted spots on the team to fill out the Americans’ 12-player Olympic squad, a person with knowledge of the details said Saturday. The Americans plan to announce the team in New York on Monday. They were confirmed to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because roster details were to remain private. Ohio.com/AP

The rest of the roster: Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, New York’s Carmelo Anthony, Toronto’s Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, Indiana’s Paul George, Golden State’s Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins, Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan. Ohio.com/AP

Erazem Lorbek may finally get his wish. After sitting out last season overseas, the longtime 6-foot-10 forward from Slovenia is expected to make the trip to San Antonio to workout with the Spurs, the Express-News has learned. If you recall, Lorbek’s rights was traded to the Spurs as part of that 2011 draft night deal which sent guard George Hill to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for the draft rights to forward Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs also received forward Davis Bertans from Latvian in the deal. San Antonio Express-News
