Monty Williams out in Detroit, Jeff Van Gundy joins the Clippers & NBA Free agency preview | No Cap Room

In this episode of No space limitYahoo Sports Senior NBA Reporter Jake Fischer and Yahoo Sports Senior NBA Writer Dan Devine talk about everything happening in the NBA this week (NOTE: This episode was recorded before the Lakers will hire JJ Redick and before the Bulls-Thunder trade).

The guys start off by talking about Monty Williams, who has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Detroit Pistons this week. The guys explain why Detroit made the move now and what to expect next from the Pistons and Williams.

Jeff Van Gundy is leaving the champion Boston Celtics to become an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers, which is strange for a former successful NBA head coach who has been a broadcaster for ESPN for nearly 20 years. Dan explores why Van Gundy returns to training in a third act of his life.

Now that the NBA Finals have concluded, it was revealed that Mark Cuban is no longer running basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks. Cuban will no longer need to make all the decisions for the Mavericks, and that will be strange, but also a sign that this team is starting to look more like any other team in the NBA.

After talking about Joe Mazzulla needing knee surgery, the guys talk a little about how Rich Paul handled the NBA Draft on behalf of Bronny James and what it could mean for his early NBA career.

Jake goes over some of the big NBA offseason dates coming up this summer before the guys dive into a preview of the start of NBA free agency. Jake talks about what big dominoes will determine what happens to everyone else and Dan wonders how much better the Oklahoma City Thunder could get this offseason.

Finally, the Golden State Warriors are trying to be competitive with some future Hall of Famers on the roster, but could it finally be time to consider blowing it up and starting over? The Warriors are paying a lot of money in taxes and keep missing the playoffs.
