The Spurs moved quickly when the NBA's free-agent signing period began Wednesday, signing point guard Jacque Vaughn and extending offer sheets to centers Francisco Elson and Jackie Butler.

The Salt Lake Tribune has learned the Jazz will sign unrestricted free agent Jarron Collins, perhaps as early as Thursday.

Greg Buckner, agreed to sign with the Dallas Mavericks. Buckner will receive at least three years guaranteed, with the two sides working on details for two more years. "I'm happy," Buckner said today. "It was my first choice to go to Dallas. It's crazy it worked out."

Free agent guard Tarence Kinsey has signed a with the Memphis Grizzlies, agent Michael Whitaker told HoopsHype.com

According to an NBA source, the Phoenix Suns were prepared to make an offer of five years and $22 million to the 6-foot-7 Salmons, a restricted free agent. The Sixers, who have the right to match any offer, are likely to sign him for those figures and then trade him to the Suns. In return, the source said, the Suns would give the Sixers a second-round draft choice and the $3.6 million trade exception they received last summer from Atlanta in the deal for Joe Johnson. Billy King, the Sixers' president and general manager, acknowledged yesterday that there was interest by teams in Salmons. The player's agent, Joel Bell, could not be reached for comment. The Suns are believed to be looking for a backup shooting guard. Leandro Barbosa played that role last season, but coach Mike D'Antoni is considering moving Barbosa to point guard to back up Steve Nash.

The Orlando Magic, in their search to settle their shooting-guard quandary, said goodbye to DeShawn Stevenson and welcomed back Keith Bogans. The Sentinel learned today that the Magic were finalizing a three-year contract with Bogans after halting negotiations with Stevenson. Stevenson wanted a four-year contract at least $4 million year. The Magic refused to budge at three years, ending Stevenson's two-plus year stay in Orlando. Stevenson's agent, Rob Pelinka, told the Sentinel recently that Stevenson had at least two contract offers on the table that were better than the Magic's. Stevenson, 25, had one year at $3 million left on his deal, but opted out of his contract this summer.

The Washington Wizards and coach Eddie Jordan have agreed on a contract extension for Jordan that will be announced soon, possibly today, The Washington Times has learned. The deal will pay Jordan approximately $12.5 million over three guaranteed seasons. The team will have the option for a fourth, according to team and league sources reached yesterday. Jordan's new deal will begin at the end of the 2006-07 season.

Nelson said the Mavs now hope to reach an agreement with one of their own free agents, Adrian Griffin, before this week is over. The Mavs are also trying to decide whether to re-sign veteran free-agent point guard Darrell Armstrong or add a younger point guard into the mix behind Jason Terry and Harris. While extolling the virtues of James, who signed with Minnesota, Nelson said Buckner has a chance to be a better backcourt fit alongside Terry. "Like I said, with James, if that would have come to fruition, he would have been a very valuable player," Nelson said. "But all of a sudden you're committing now to really playing he and JT quite a bit together. "You're talking about 6-2 and 6-2 out there, and then how does that affect Devin? There are only certain teams in the league that we could have played dual point guards against, so I think [obtaining Buckner] actually is a better move for the entire team."

Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry has been on the prowl for a veteran guard. Sources say the Cavaliers are close to signing veteran David Wesley. Wesley, who will be 36 on Nov. 14, could be signed with part of the Cavaliers' mid-level exception or possibly the bi-annual exception ($1.8 million).

The Cavs are still maintaining interest in free-agent point guard Marcus Banks. Banks' options have been limited, as three teams that were in contact with him -- the Los Angeles Lakers, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Atlanta Hawks -- have gone in different directions by picking up point guards or using cap space. But it doesn't seem as if anything is imminent in Cleveland. ``We're not talking much about it right now; the Cavs have some other priorities to deal with,'' Banks' agent, Michael Higgins, said Thursday. ``Marcus is interested in the Cavs; he likes Mike (Brown).''

Pavlovic is going into the final year of his rookie contract, and the Cavs currently have no intention of extending his deal. He also faces stiff competition on the roster for playing time, which makes it pretty important how he shows up for training camp in October.

Washington Wizards restricted free agent Jared Jeffries is strongly considering signing the team's one-year qualifying offer of $2.8 million, which would allow the forward to pursue unrestricted free agency after next season, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. This comes as negotiations between Jeffries' agent, Andy Miller, and Wizards president of basketball operations Ernie Grunfeld have cooled over the last week

According to a league source, the Wizards continue to express interest in -- but have not offered a contract to -- free agent shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson, who averaged 11 points in 82 games with the Orlando Magic last season. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic has cut off negotiations with Stevenson, who is seeking a four-year deal worth $4 million.

The Wizards are still in the process of deciding whether Pecherov will attend training camp in October. To bring Pecherov to camp, the Wizards must negotiate a buyout of his contract with BC Kyiv of the Ukrainian Superleague and sign him to an NBA contract. The Wizards can pay up to $500,000 of Pecherov's $800,000 buyout with BC Kyiv, which loaned Pecherov to a team in France last season. Under the NBA's rookie salary scale, Pecherov would be eligible to sign a two-year guaranteed contract worth $2.1 million

Rumors persist that the Timberwolves will trade Marko Jaric and Trenton Hassell to Denver for Kenyon Martin. Wolves VP Kevin McHale wouldn't comment on the possibility Thursday.

The Mavs have expressed interest in re-signing Adrian Griffin, but Griffin said he has also had discussions with "two or three other teams."

Among the guards in the free agent market, Minnesota's Marcus Banks is probably the most intriguing name left, although playing time would come into play as it did with Salmons. The Suns also have shown interest in ex-Sun Tony Delk, Minnesota's Marko Jaric and Eddie House, who has yet to sign with another team. Wing players on the market who could interest the Suns include Jumaine Jones, Devean George and big men like Aaron Williams.

Spanish team FC Barcelona will try to sign piston Carlos Delfino.
