Kings face tough decision with Isaiah Thomas

The team's starting point guard is their only free agent of note now that Rudy Gay will be back for one more season. Can the Kings afford to keep him?

Will Melo stay or go?

The Knicks' offseason revolves around Carmelo Anthony. Will he return to New York or bolt for a better chance at winning?

NBA
1

Pelicans must find right mix around Davis

Anthony Davis is about the only untouchable on the New Orleans Pelicans roster, but do they have the flexibility to make significant moves after a summer of big changes gone wrong in 2013?

Grizzlies' future waits on Randolph

The Grizzlies' identity will be up in the air until Zach Randolph decides on his future, but the team should be able to draft a player who fills a roster need.
