Suns sign G/F P.J. Tucker.

Tucker last played for the Raptors after being drafted by them in the second round of the 2006 draft. He got a two-year deal with the first year being partially guaranteed by Phoenix, but don't expect him to see more than five or so minutes per game off the end of the Suns bench. Since leaving the NBA in 2006 he's been an MVP in Israel, a scoring champion in the Ukraine and the MVP of this year's German league finals. He's also played in Italy, Puerto Rico and Greece.

Kawhi Leonard told Gregg Popovich during their Tuesday meeting that he no longer wants to play for the Spurs, according to Stephen A. Smith.

Leonard has made it clear that he'd like to be traded to one of the Los Angeles-based teams, and that his preference would be to go to the Lakers. It's not a great look for Leonard's camp that he first went to the media, and not management, with his trade request, but perhaps that's an indication of how badly fractured their relationship has become.

The Hornets are finalizing a deal to send Dwight Howard to the Nets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash considerations.

The fact that the best the Hornets get in a trade involving D12 was Mozgov and a few second-rounders tells you pretty much all you need to know about where the former Defensive Player of the Year's value is at as he enters his 15th year in the league. Howard will likely open the year as Brooklyn's starting five-man, which is absolutely terrible news for Jarrett Allen's outlook, while his departure from Charlotte will open up minutes for Willy Hernangomez.

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Kawhi Leonard met with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich in San Diego on Tuesday.

It was widely reported on June 15 that Leonard wants out of San Antonio, so this may be a last-ditch effort by Popovich to convince the two-way superstar to reconsider. ESPN adds that Leonard has been reluctant to meet with Popovich up until now, and that he "remains irate with public comments out of teammate Tony Parker and Popovich that he felt were not supportive of him" during his injury-plagued 2017-18 campaign.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, "Luka Doncic has moved to forefront of Atlanta's internal conversation on the third overall pick."

NBA decision makers seem to be split when it comes to Doncic, as some have him as the top prospect and others may not even have him in their top 3-5. In terms of fantasy, the Hawks would be a great landing spot for Doncic because they could slowly build their offense around him for years to come. If Doncic is off the board, Wojnarowski adds that the Hawks will consider Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Bagley (if the Kings pass on Bagley at No. 2).

LeBron James reportedly does not want to play in Houston next season.

The Rockets still haven't had an opportunity to make their pitch to James, but according to Steven A. Smith, Chris Paul has begun telling people that he doesn't anticipate James landing in Houston and that he'd prefer to play in Los Angeles. The Lakers could realistically land Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and King James this summer, which would surround James with the sort of star power necessary to combat Golden State. There's still a lot that can happen here, but right now, the Lakers look like the early favorites in the James sweepstakes.

Rudy Gay has declined to pick up his player option for the 2018-19 season with San Antonio.

Gay will be leaving $8.8 million on the table in hopes of inking a long-term deal at a similar salary, although there won't be many teams with ample cap space this summer, so Gay's wallet could be taking a hit here. He wasn't all that impressive with the Spurs this past season with averages of just 11.5 points, 5.1 boards and 1.3 assists per contest, so regardless of the name across his jersey, he won't be worth targeting in most fantasy hoops leagues.

Jamal Crawford has declined to pick up his player option worth $4.5 million with the Timberwolves for the 2018-19 season.

Crawford will hit the open market this summer as an unrestricted free agent, but it could be tough for him to command that sort of salary after putting in averages of just 10.3 points, 1.3 triples and 2.3 assists per game on 41.5% shooting during his 2017-18 campaign. However, it's plausible that the 38-year-old veteran might be opting out of this deal in order to sign for the veteran's minimum on a championship caliber squad.

Lonzo Ball has been "the one constant" on a potential piece to go to Cleveland in a LeBron James sign-and-trade deal, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

That makes sense for the Lakers because the Spurs are reportedly not likely to deal for him. Ball is still recovering from his PRP treatment in his knee, but he should be ready to roll for training camp. Expect plenty of LaVar Ball talk in the coming weeks.

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) has progressed to training in a pool and running on a treadmill.

He's moving along quite nicely from his Achilles tear back on Jan. 26. His injury is basically uncharted territory for a man his size in this age of modern medicine, so it could affect his chances on a long-term deal. Regardless, things are looking up for Cousins to be close to full strength before the calendar turns to 2019.

The Cavs have expressed to Larry Nance that they view him as a "foundational piece," according to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.

The report adds that there is "a ton" of interest to discuss an extension with Nance. The 25-year-old forward is eligible for a rookie-scale contract, and the Cavs could lean on him as they likely rebuild their roster. If Kevin Love is traded, Nance would become a potential mid-round target in fantasy.

Some members of the Knicks organization came away "very impressed" by Kentucky's Kevin Knox after his performance in a group workout on Saturday, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.com.

According to the report, Knox competed with Miles Bridges, and the Knicks asked about Knox's availability after the draft. Knox is suddenly rising up draft boards as the second youngest player in the draft. The 6'9" forward could certainly be an option for the Knicks at No. 9, and he would be on the fantasy radar on that shallow roster.
