Stan Van Gundy has been relieved of his head coaching duties from the Orlando Magic.

Otis Smith, the Magic GM, has also been let go in the front-office shakeup clearly made to appease franchise cornerstone Dwight Howard. Van Gundy, who had a 259-135 (.657) record in five seasons in Orlando, made the best of a difficult situation all year with the Howard contract saga hanging over the team and will probably have no problem finding another head coaching gig. Despite coaching the team to an NBA Finals in 2009, Howard had lost patience with Van Gundy, and no matter what the front office says, D-12 will have a big say in who the next coach of Orlando will be. The Magic will hold a press conference at 4:30 ET on Monday to discuss the situation in further detail.

The Warriors and restricted free agent Draymond Green have broken off contract talks.

The Warriors met with Green and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, in Los Angeles after 12:01 a.m. EDT. Green has likely earned a max deal and Tristan Thompson getting around $80 million is going to strengthen the case for Draymond, too. The Warriors are still likely to match any deal.

Tyson Chandler has agreed to a deal with the Suns worth $52 million over four years.

Well, we have our first surprise of the day. Additionally, the Suns are going to bring Chandler to their meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge. The Suns had some issues with center because Alex Len just couldn't stay healthy, but now they have two terrific rim protectors. Len is no longer a fantasy sleeper for next year while Chandler should be a double-double guy with blocks in an up-tempo style.

The Suns and Brandon Knight have agreed on a five-year, $70 million deal.

The Suns now have two guards with five-year, $70 million deals with Eric Bledsoe getting one last year. Coach Jeff Hornacek has been a fan of two-PG lineups, but both guys are more than capable of being shooting guards. However, both are sub-par passers and it'll be interesting to see if Knight can build off his breakout 2014-15 season.

The Grizzlies and Mo Williams have been in contact regarding a contract.

There are some reports that Williams is getting close to a three- or four-year deal with Memphis. The Cavs were reportedly close on Mo, but it sounds like the Grizzlies have a decent chance.

Kevin Love announced he will return to the Cavs and accept a five-year, $110 million deal.

"After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that’s when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one," Love said on his Players' Tribune article. "I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn’t have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court." The Cavs are spending all sorts of money to get the band back together, so expect LeBron's deal to happen in the near future. Love will be worth a second or third round pick in fantasy leagues next year.

The Cavs and Tristan Thompson are nearing a deal worth $80 million.

It seems like just yesterday Thompson was changing his shooting hand and struggling to get playing time. Thanks to being arguably the best rebounder in the postseason this summer, Thompson has set himself up for a big pay check. Presumably, this will be a five-year deal.
Jul 1 - 2:32 PM

Jimmy Butler is finalizing a max deal with the Bulls worth $95 million over five years.

The other teams after Butler have given up, so the Bulls have their man. There were some rumblings of Butler being worried about it being "Derrick Rose's team" and that will have to be something to watch. Butler led the NBA in minutes per game last season and was the eighth-best player in fantasy per game. He could be even better next year.
Jul 1 - 2:24 PM

Alexis Ajinca will sign a four-year, $20.2 million deal to remain with the Pelicans.

Ajinca was a solid option off the bench for the Pelicans last season with averages of 6.5 points, 4.6 boards and 0.8 blocks in just 14.1 minutes per game, so this deal was a great value. It's possible that Omer Asik leaves in free agency, so Ajinca could be pressed into a larger role if that is the case.
Jul 1 - 1:58 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat are progressing in talks on a multi-year deal.

Wade reportedly wants a max contract offer, and the Heat will likely be more willing to give him one since Goran Dragic re-signed at a discount. The Lakers are reportedly still hoping to get a meeting with Wade, but it looks like the Heat are still the clear favorites to sign him.
Jul 1 - 1:27 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge could make a decision on his future very soon, and the Spurs are currently considered the frontrunners to land him.

The Lakers reportedly didn't make a strong impression on him, so it appears that they are likely out of the running. The Spurs just re-signed Danny Green to a cap-friendly four-year, $45 million deal, and they also cleared a lot of cap space by trading Tiago Splitter to the Hawks. Aldridge is currently meeting with the Spurs, and it wouldn't be surprising if an agreement is reached soon.
Jul 1 - 12:17 PM

DeMarre Carroll has agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with the Raptors.

Terrence Ross was a huge disappointment for the Raptors last season, so Carroll will immediately step in as the starting small forward. It's a great signing for Toronto, as Carroll's defense, toughness and shooting stroke from beyond the arc will be a huge upgrade on the wing.
