The Suns submitted a successful three-year, $13 million waiver claim for Luis Scola on Sunday.

This is a sneaky pickup for the Suns, who otherwise had only Channing Frye (who could miss the start of the season with a shoulder injury), Hakim Warrick and Markieff Morris at PF.

LeBron James will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

It's an easy decision for James considering the salary cap will jump up to $94 million next season. James recently said that he isn't planning on leaving Cleveland, but signing another two-year deal with an opt-out clause in 2017 would make the most sense since the cap will expand again.

The Heat are close to reaching a deal on an extension for head coach Erik Spoelstra.

His current contract ends after the 2016-17 season, so it makes sense for the Heat to lock him up now. Heat owner Micky Arison and president Pat Riley are big fans of Spoelstra and he's currently the second-longest active tenured coach in the NBA behind Gregg Popovich. The Heat had a 48-34 record last season and made it to the Eastern Conference Semifinals despite losing Chris Bosh (blood clots) for the season.

Tim Duncan has officially exercised his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season, but his future is still unclear.

Duncan is 40 years old and is seriously considering retirement, but this is still a good sign for the Spurs. The Spurs aren't going to give Duncan a timetable to make a decision, so it may be a while before we get a firm answer. If he does return for his 20th season in the NBA, he won't be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues after averaging just 8.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks last season.

According to ESPN, contract talks have stalled between Dwyane Wade and the Heat.

The report adds that Wade will consider outside offers, so it doesn't like it's a lock that the three-time champion will return to Miami. The Heat have nine free agents and $40 million to spend, but it's not clear if Wade is willing to take a discount so that Miami can pursue targets such as Kevin Durant and Hassan Whiteside. Things are going to be very interesting on July 1.

The Spurs have extended a qualifying offer to Boban Marjanovic.

This will make the big man a restricted free agent, giving the Spurs the ability to match any opposing offers in free agency. Boban showed some really nice upside in spurts last season, so this was a no-brainer for San Antonio. If Tim Duncan decides to retire, Boban could be looking at a larger role next season.

Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson said that the Nets aren't going to trade Brook Lopez.

"No. Absolutely not," Atkinson said. "Have not talked about it." Take this quote with a grain of salt because Atkinson called Thaddeus Young a building block two weeks ago and now he's an Indiana Pacer. Atkinson did say that he wants Lopez to be a leader for his team, but the reality is that Lopez is arguably the best trade chip Brooklyn has and it's clear that they aren't close to competing for a playoff spot.

The Nets are reportedly shopping Jarrett Jack.

The Nets have until June 30 to decide if they will pick up Jack's team option for the 2016-17 season, but Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that they will waive him if they're unable to find a trade partner. Jack is 32 years old and played really well last season, but he's a bit of a gamble since he's coming off a torn right ACL and meniscus. That being said, he is reportedly on pace to be ready for training camp and should generate interest around the league if he's waived. If Jack leaves Brooklyn, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead could see a lot of action in their rookie seasons.

The Wizards have reportedly moved on from the idea of signing Kevin Durant this offseason.

The "coming home" narrative reportedly "doesn't resonate" with Durant, and there will be no meetings between Durant and the Wizards. Durant does have meetings scheduled with the Warriors, Spurs, Thunder, Heat, Clippers and Celtics, with the Heat, Thunder and Warriors believed to be the frontrunners in the KD-sweepstakes. The Hawks and Lakers are also pushing for a meeting with Durant, but neither of those teams are likely to sway the superstar. Wherever Durant does sign, it's believed that he'll sign a two-year deal with an opt out to put pressure on the franchise to continue to perform.

After trading away Victor Oladipo on draft night, the Magic are reportedly "very interested" in pursuing unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford.

The Magic will have money to spend, and Crawford likely won't be giving anyone a discount as this will be the final big money deal of his career. Crawford would prefer to re-sign with the Clippers, and he's also going to receive interest from the Knicks, Heat, Mavericks, Nets and Raptors, so the Magic will have plenty of competition regarding the three-time winner of the Sixth Man of the Year award.

The 76ers and Kings reportedly have interest in signing restricted free agent Dion Waiters this offseason.

Waiters is hopeful to return to the Thunder, but the Kings or 76ers could offer him more than he's worth to try and change his mind. Waiters would have the opportunity to start with Sacramento or Philly, although that wouldn't necessarily translate to standard league value for the career 41.1 percent shooter. OKC will have the right to match any offer Waiters signs on the open market.
Jun 28 - 4:44 PM

The 76ers reportedly plan to be "serious suitors" for Harrison Barnes during free agency.

Barnes will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Warriors will be able to match any offer he signs on the open market, but Philly could potentially pull him away from the Oakland franchise with a poison pill kind of contract. Barnes' preference would be to remain in Golden State, but he'd have much more opportunity to produce in Philly.
