Andrew Bynum spoke the media on Monday and said he's unsure of when he'll be able to return from his sore knee, although he also says it's getting better.

"I'm not sure," Bynum said when asked when he'll be ready. "It's really up to the trainers and the doctors right now, but I think if all the beans were on the table right now I'd be out there. It definitely feels better. A lot of it has to do with my pain threshold. It's just to the point where I can't run up and down with the team right now." This is obviously a huge concern and you have to think his conditioning will be an issue early in the season as well. He's watching film and trying to learn a new offense, but his knee is going to have to heal quickly if he's going to make the impact we're all expecting in Philadelphia. He still has a chance to be the best fantasy center in the league, but his early knee problems are definitely something to be concerned about. Hopefully he's ready by opening night, if not sooner. For now, Kwame Brown is the starting C in Philly.

DeMar DeRozan does not plan to schedule meetings with other teams at the start of free agency, according to Tim McMahon of ESPN.com.

He is going to focus on agreeing to terms with the Raptors. DeRozan has said his mindset has always been Toronto for basically the entire season, including after he was knocked out of the postseason. The Raptors can offer DeRozan a five-year, $153 million deal. General manager Masai Ujiri said his No. 1 goal is to bring the 2015-16 All-Star back, so the Raptors are heavy favorites.

Kyrie Irving has accepted his invitation from USA Basketball to play in the 2016 Olympics.

He didn't play much basketball last summer with his knee injury, but this year he'll be playing a ton. Irving will be arguably the best point guard on the Team USA roster and should run the offense while he's out there. The 24-year-old guard accepting his invite also suggests his foot injury during the playoffs is feeling better.

The Lakers plan to "aggressively pursue" Hassan Whiteside in free agency, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne.

In other words, it sounds like they might offer him a max contract. The Lakers have a gaping hole at center with Julius Randle logging the overwhelming majority of his minutes at power forward, so they will be investing most of their cap space on a center. The Heat have made him their top priority and are likely the frontrunner to have him next year.

The Jazz are not looking to trade Gordon Hayward according to Deseret News.

A report from hoopscritic.com indicated that Hayward is unhappy in Utah, but that has since been discredited. Hayward has been working out at Zions Bank Basketball Center every morning and a team source made it clear that there is nothing to the rumor. The Jazz still believe that Hayward is a major cornerstone and it doesn't sound like he's going anywhere despite rumored interest from the Celtics and the Suns.

Earl Watson said that the Suns are not shopping Eric Bledsoe.

There was a report that the Suns were looking to deal either Brandon Knight or Bledsoe, but take Watson's comments with a grain of salt because admitting to this would hurt the Suns' leverage in trade talks. Bledsoe (knee) has resumed basketball activities and has a goal to be 100 percent for training camp, but trading him while his value is low wouldn't make much sense for the Suns. Expect him to open the season as the starting PG in Phoenix next season.

Harrison Barnes has made the Team USA roster for the Rio Olympics.

He had a disappointing 2015-16 season, but this should be a great learning experience for the 24-year-old forward. The Warriors have been heavily linked with Kevin Durant and Nicolas Batum this summer, so Barnes' future with the franchise is still up in the air. Don't be surprised if a team offers him a max contract this summer with the salary cap rising to $94 million.

Pau Gasol announced that he will play for Spain in the Olympics this summer, but Serge Ibaka said that he will not participate.

Gasol was considering skipping the Olympics due to concerns over the Zika virus, so this is great news for Spain. "My commitment to the national team is greater than my fears over what might happen," Gasol said in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca. "My feelings of passion and responsibility toward my national team, my sport and my teammates are huge." This will be Gasol's fourth time competing in the Olympics, and Spain is expected to announce their final roster on Monday.

The Warriors, Spurs and Thunder are the first three known teams to have recruiting meetings with Kevin Durant, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

It's going to be very interesting to see how Durant reacts to the Serge Ibaka trade. If he stays with OKC, he'll certainly be playing a lot more power forward. The Warriors and Spurs both can clear out some money to bring on Durant, especially with the salary cap rising to $94 million next year. Get ready for a lot of rumors.

Derrick Rose said he wants to play with Joakim Noah.

"I want him," Rose said. "He knows that. I think his family knows that. I think everyone knows that." This isn't exactly a secret and the Knicks may have been after Noah even before the Rose deal. Plus, losing Robin Lopez makes getting a center a top priority for them. There is a report of the Wizards in on Noah, but they don't need him nearly as much as the Knicks do.

Bradley Beal will not participate for Team USA this summer.

Beal announced it in a statement on his Twitter account: "I could not be more grateful for the invitation to represent my country, as it is the ultimate honor, however it is with deep regret that I have declined the opportunity to participate with Team USA this summer in Rio. I have made the decision to dedicate this summer to getting in the best physical shape of my life and feel it is imperative that I stay true to my plan so I can be at my very best supporting my coaches and teammates for the upcoming season." This is good news for the Wizards due to how Beal has so many injuries to his leg.

If the Warriors can't sign Kevin Durant, they are expected to look at Nicolas Batum in free agency.

Things aren't looking good for Harrison Barnes' future in Golden State. The Thunder are likely still the favorites to re-sign Durant, while Batum is likely going to receive several max offers and Charlotte will do everything in their power to keep him. For what it's worth, Evan Turner's name has also popped up, but he would be a questionable fit in Golden State since he's not much of a shooter.
