While Day eight of NBA Free Agency began slow, eerily slow, the latter portion of it certainly made up for the lack of action during the first part.
Adrian Wojnarowski was quiet and Marc Stein, too. Chris Sheridan, however, was nearly pounding his chest with news from his “sources.”
It was quite the afternoon.
Here’s Tuesday’s quiet, but loud, rundown:
San Antonio Spurs keeping their eye on Pau Gasol.
Spurs staying diligent on free agent Pau Gasol, but Bulls and Thunder — with Lakers lurking — lead the way, sources tell Yahoo.

As the Heat attempt to build around LeBron James, potentially, they inquire about Jordan Hill, Per Insidesocal.com.
The Miami Heat have much more pressing concerns on keeping LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. But the Heat have also expressed interest in acquiring Lakers forward Jordan Hill, according to a league source familiar with the discussions.
Hill has sparked interest from other teams, including the Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets. But Hill’s free agency interest has not gone beyond what one source called “dialogue” and no meetings with teams are currently scheduled.
Lastly, LeBron James has reportedly already made his decision. HELLO, CLEVELAND
