Among the teams said to be interested in the shooting guard are the Knicks, Bulls, Pelicans, Mavericks and Grizzlies (according to The Sporting News’ Sean Deveney).
The Lakers reportedly have agreed on a four-year, $64 million deal with center Timofey Mozgov, who mostly sat on the bench for the Cavaliers during their title run, as they look to climb out of the Western Conference cellar.
The Knicks upgraded their roster with the acquisition of former MVP Derrick Rose in a draft-day trade, and they reportedly are closing in on a four-year deal with Joakim Noah. They have an opening at shooting guard and are said to be interested in a few free agents.
Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in 2010 who struggled to make an impact his first four seasons in the NBA with the 76ers and Pacers before arriving in Boston as a free agent in the summer of 2014, has indicated a desire to return to the C’s after averaging 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists and 27.8 minutes per game over two seasons and reportedly being a positive locker room influence, but it’s not clear if Danny Ainge would spend the money to retain his services.

— On the same day the NFL announced a four-game suspension for unsigned quarterback Johnny Manziel, the Cowboys learned they will be without three defensive starters to open the season due to suspensions of their own.
Linebacker Rolando McClain was banned 10 games for his second violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy in two years. He will sit along with defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory, fellow Cowboys starters who were suspended four games each for substance-abuse violations.
All three players can participate in the team’s training camp, which starts July 30, and in the preseason.
Manziel also was suspended for a substance-abuse violation, and he could face more punishment as he has been accused of domestic violence. If the 23-year-old with a history of off-field issues does find a team willing to take a chance on him, he would have to miss the start of the season.

On the eve of NBA free agency, Christian previews what could happen for the Celtics this offseason. And with less than two weeks until the MLB All-Star Break, Christian looks at what has been going on with the Sox recently.
Danny talks with Bill about the state of the Red Sox and they get into a heated debate on whether John Farrell should keep his job or if he
[0:02:45] ... but here's the most pressing in my mind I sat down with DavidOrtiz for a few minutes on. Tuesday night to talk to him for a story and built a Bleacher Report he picked his ... [0:03:23] ... you know David going to be in a home run derby. And JohnFarrell said well if he's not going to be in the home run derby get music in my years so how in the hell is it possible that I do. They DavidOrtiz was not going to be at all arguably report JohnFarrell knew that DavidOrtiz was not going to be in a home run derby. How is that even possible. When I've seen the team on site three times this year in JohnFarrell presumably as a investigate. But. Don't actually think something like that is the reason the Red Sox an illusion scan. Right now ... [0:05:29] ... an iron and I've never really got some ominous at Erin defended JohnFarrell ever. I've criticized an awful lot and for a lot of things that you just. I've criticized him but what I seen ... [0:06:11] ... This to me is about pitching and I know people say well JohnFarrell's the pitching coach heat up a attribute the medic don't know he's the manager. No I get up you know what I'm ...
We discuss the moves (or lack thereof) of the Bruins so far, and how fans have been less than receptive to the few changes.
[0:10:43] ... is gonna help them to. In this scenario he writes Boston sense AmirJohnson a market. Jae Crowder. Let's okay with that but I'm mark is Mark Burnett bullet Belichick on Erica well ought not gotten ...
[0:05:16] ... right and I said players were OK so after that is it CarlWillis or is that the manager. I would go CarlWillis. I'd go Willis before the manager means the pitching coach. You're you're you know you're job is not to be in charge ... [0:12:57] ... In the manager's position you know the all star break. There keep CarlWillis. A torrent of LO would then have CarlWillis is is pitching count well. If if if that the new manager commander in and pick pick an automatic I don't think that a well in an interim manager would have the ability to do that. I Ike and I may be wrong about this if they made the move on JohnFarrell I don't think they'd say torrent of fellow is the new manager of the Boston Red Sox period. I think they'd say Carlos Melo is the interim manager through the end of the season I will take a look at how things golf they'll. Do that but in other words dale I don't think. I don't think CarlWillis is gonna go on his own. So I think the Red Sox gonna release a statement saying CarlWillis has been replaces pitching coach I don't. But of John Ferrell were to be fired. I don't think you'll be fired alone. I think they'd say John Ferrell and CarlWillis. I think it Boca. If something happened. Well that was the question I Atwood in it if they did this and in in my scenario wouldn't happen to the all star break but I look if I'm wrong happen tomorrow. Would would CarlWillis still be the pitching coach Dave Bing do enough with chili Davis they just loved them with the job chili Davis has done an even though the offense. Has kind of regressed to the mean a little bit. It's still pretty gut. Yes it is but you don't when you talk about. John Ferrell and and the team. It's not like is just one thing that the team is doing. So it it in your scenario earlier you said gonna blame JohnFarrell it's ridiculous gonna say John Ferrell is responsible for. David Price struggling. It's a big boy rays won a Cy Young is ... [0:16:49] ... moves that are taunting the Red Sox right now taunting moves. Now JohnLackey makes ten million dollars a year now or Morton that make point two million dollars a year having sixteen. But he had them. On the hook for 500000 dollars and you traded him for Joseph Kelley and for Allen Craig. And JohnLackey is in the rotation the really good team in Chicago. And both that your guys that you got from Saint Louis or in the minor leaks. Okay and it's just no way things happen JonLester they wanna pay him. And get traded them recessed that is Lester recessed service SaaS success but it's reports fellow so you put you picked. Reports all over JonLester. Theoretically have JonLester David Price right now if you want it to you or JonLester and another guy have the money. That's a mistake but that too big set the tone for the organization mistakes. At the ... [0:18:09] ... Larry Lucchino got our Theo Epstein get by Terry Francona good bye JonLester get by JohnLackey. And sharing and by him to. So yeah a lot of mistakes here and if you fired John Ferrell let's talk about ...
