Cavs reportedly agree to 4-year deal with Jarrett Jack: NBA moves
Blazers agree to terms with guard Dorell Wright
A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Cavaliers and free-agent guard Jarrett Jack have agreed to a four-year contract.
The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not yet been announced, says Jack's deal is worth $25 million and includes a team option in the final year.
Teams must wait until July 10 to announce any signings during the NBA's free agency period.
The 29-year-old Jack averaged 12.9 points and 5.6 assists this season for Golden State. The Warriors renounced their rights on Jack, a restricted free agent, earlier this week.
Jack also has played for Portland, Indiana, Toronto and New Orleans. He helped the Warriors go from a 23-43 team during the lockout-shortened season to a 47-35 record this year.
Blazers sign Wright, waive Pavlovic: report
The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a contract with free agent small forward Dorell Wright, who played last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, a person close to the negotiations said Saturday.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be formalized until Wednesday under NBA rules.
Wright, a nine-year NBA veteran, averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists off the bench for the Sixers last season. He was traded to Philadelphia from Golden State last July.
Wright, a 6-foot-9 wing, confirmed the deal on Twitter, simply proclaiming ".ripcity." Then he thanked the 76ers, their fans and his teammates.
The deal with Wright is the third notable move the Blazers have made since the NBA draft. Last Sunday, Portland added frontcourt depth by acquiring 6-10 forward Thomas Robinson from the Houston Rockets in exchange for a pair of future draft picks, and the draft rights to Kostas Papanikolau and Marko Todorovic.
Robinson was the fifth overall pick in last year's draft by the Sacramento Kings, but was dealt to the Rockets in a three-team trade in February. He played in 70 total games last season, averaging 4.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 15.1 minutes.
Also on Saturday, the Blazers announced they had waived guard-forward Sasha Pavlovic, who averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 39 appearances last season. While he had two years left on his contract with Portland, his salary was not guaranteed.
The Blazers lost their last 13 games to finish 33-49 last season and out of the playoffs for the second straight season.
Jazz sign 1st-rounders Trey Burke, Rudy Gobert
The Utah Jazz have signed draft picks Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert.
Burke was the ninth overall pick in the draft, acquired by the Jazz in a trade that sent Utah's 14th and 21st overall picks to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 6-foot-1 point guard played two seasons at Michigan, averaging 18.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals. He had 255 assists to set the school's single-season record.
Gobert, a 7-foot-1 centre from France, was the 27th overall pick in the draft, acquired in a trade with Denver that sent the 46th overall pick and cash considerations to the Nuggets. He averaged 8.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks for Cholet Basket of the French League last season.
Terms of both contracts were not released on Saturday.
