Rajon Rondo has been suspended for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Hawks.

It's a well-deserved ban after Rondo clearly lost his cool and bumped official Marc Davis while arguing a call late in Game 1. Additionally, Rondo also has a history here as he got a two-game ban for throwing a ball at ref in late February. With Ray Allen (ankle) looking doubtful, the Celtics' backcourt will feature Avery Bradley, Mickael Pietrus and Keyon Dooling Tuesday. Rondo will be back for Game 3.

Ricky Rubio is an active name in Minnesota's trade discussions, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Rubio's name has been in the rumor mill for years, but he's had one foot out the door ever since the Wolves drafted Kris Dunn. He's coming off a strong season with averages of 11.1 points, 9.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 0.8 3-pointers, and with just two years and $29 million left on his deal, he should draw plenty of interest. The Wolves have been in talks with the Bulls about Jimmy Butler, but it's not clear if they would take Rubio if their plan is to rebuild.

The Jazz are receiving "a lot of interest" on Derrick Favors, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.

This report adds that Utah isn't looking to deal Favors, but he isn't off limits. Favors had a terrible year in 2016-17 due to lingering knee issues, playing in just 50 games and starting just 39. He even tweeted he was playing on one leg, which caused the drop in minutes and productivity. If Favors can recover from this knee issue, the 25-year-old big man could have a bounce-back season.

Several teams, including the Boston Celtics, have engaged the Knicks about a possible Kristaps Porzingis trade according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

Woj adds that no one has been willing to meet the Knicks demands so far, but expect the talks to heat up as we approach the draft. In case you missed it, the Knicks are said to be asking for two starters and a top four pick in return, presumably to select Kansas' Josh Jackson. The Celtics (No. 3) and Suns (No. 4) are likely the favorites to land Porzingis if the Knicks pull the trigger on a trade, as it sounds like the 76ers (No. 1) are more than comfortable with Markelle Fultz and the Lakers (No. 2) are expected to take Lonzo Ball.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Michael C. Wright, the Spurs are still shopping LaMarcus Aldridge.

Suns radio host John Gambadoro said on Wednesday that the Spurs were looking for a top-5 pick in return, but this report says they would move Aldridge for a top-10 pick. The Spurs have spoken to at least three teams so far, but no deal is imminent yet. Aldridge was a letdown in the postseason and is slated to make $21.4 million next season with a player option for 2018-19, so getting his contract off the books would give the Spurs a ton of flexibility to make some noise in free agency.

The NBA's projected salary cap for the 2017-18 season has been revised downward from $102 million to roughly $99 million.

The luxury tax threshold is also likely to be lowered from $121 million to $119 million. This is reportedly a result of lower-than-expected playoff revenues, and it could make it harder for some teams to clear space to pursue elite free agents. This may not have a glaring impact on strategies at the trade deadline, but it could throw a wrench into some offseason plans.

Phil Jackson was noncommittal about Kristaps Porzingis during an exclusive MSG interview on Wednesday, saying, "As much as we love this guy, we have to do what's best for the club."

"I don't think I've ever had a player over 25 years, maybe 30 ... not coming to a exit meeting," Jackson said. That was a reference to Porzingis' decision to skip his exit interview with the Knicks, reportedly because he was upset about the team's treatment of Carmelo Anthony. "We're getting calls [from other teams]," Jackson added. "We're listening, but we're not intrigued yet at this level." The Knicks are reportedly seeking a top-four pick along with young talent for Porzingis, and it's a fascinating situation to watch with the draft less than 24 hours away.

Tim Frazier has been traded from the Pelicans to the Wizards in exchange for the No. 52 pick in this year's draft.

The Wizards gave up their first-round pick last year in the deal for Bojan Bogdanovic, but they made great use of their second-round pick to land a solid guard in Frazier. He should step into the backup PG role vacated by Brandon Jennings, who is a free agent, but fantasy owners won't have much interest as long as John Wall is healthy.

Nick Young has declined his $5.6 million player option in favor of free agency.

Young is 32 years old and it's no surprise to see him chase more long-term money, rather than playing out his deal and testing the market at age 33. He had a minor bounce-back season last year, even showing commitment on the defensive end, but no matter where he lands he won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of points and 3-pointers.

The Rockets have reportedly made Ryan Anderson, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams available via trade in order to open up some cap space for free agency this summer.

Trading away these guys would help the Rockets bring in another superstar to play alongside James Harden, and thus far, they've been linked to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Kyle Lowry, Paul Millsap and Paul George. Both Williams and Beverley make for very enticing trade chips as both guys are on the final year of their very cap friendly contracts, and Anderson's 3-point shooting prowess from the four-spot should be able to attract some potential suitors. Stay tuned.

The Kings, Nuggets and Suns will reportedly pursue Paul Millsap as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Millsap is fully expected to opt out of his contract in order to hit the open market this summer, and there's sure to be more than a few teams added to this list as we get deeper into free agency. The Hawks have reportedly begun to put out some feelers regarding potential sign-and-trade scenarios, which hints that the Atlanta franchise may be prepared to begin going through a rebuild. The Nuggets have long been interested in Millsap, and given they can afford to offer him a max deal, they look like one of the early frontrunners to potentially secure the All-Star forwards services.

Langston Galloway will decline his player option with the Kings for the 2017-18 season.

With Galloway opting out, the Kings officially do not have any point guards on the roster for next season, which perhaps could give them some added incentive to go with De'Aaron Fox on draft day, assuming he's still available when they come on the board with the No. 5 overall selection. As for Galloway, he shouldn't have much trouble finding his next contract, but it's unlikely he'll be a guy worth monitoring in standard fantasy leagues next season.
