Andrew Bynum (knee) will soon undergo a scheduled injection to lubricate his knees and reduce pain.

Bynum is still tentatively planning to return the last week of October, but this does nothing to ease our concerns about his knee. He's not a lock to play in the Sixers' season opener, and at the very least his conditioning will be a question mark.

Giannis Antetokounmpo won the 2017 Most Improved Player Award.

Giannis led the Bucks to a sixth place finish in the East with a 42-40 record, earning a spot on the Eastern All-Star starting five in the process. The Greak Freak was a top-5 asset in standard leagues with averages of 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.9 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers on 52.2 percent shooting, becoming the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. Entering his age-23 season, you can make a strong argument of taking him with the No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts.

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Bojan Bogdanovic.

This means Bogdanovic will become a restricted free agent along with Otto Porter. The Wizards will prioritize re-signing Porter, so Bogdanovic will only be back in Washington if his price doesn't get out of hand. After his mid-season trade from Brooklyn, Bogdanovic averaged 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples.

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Otto Porter, making the forward a restricted free agent.

The Wizards have the ability to match any offer he receives, so it's hard to imagine them letting him go even though he could be looking at a max deal. The Nets are expected to make a strong push to pry him away from Washington, but several other teams should surface as we approach July 1. Porter averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 treys on 51.6 percent shooting, returning top-25 value in standard leagues.

Eric Gordon was named the 2017 Sixth Man of the Year, becoming the first Rockets player to win the award.

You could make a strong case for both Andre Iguodala and Lou Williams, but Gordon was the favorite all along. He had one of his best seasons in years and thrived in coach Mike D'Antoni's run-and-gun system, averaging 16.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.6 steals. He was able to stay healthy and appeared in 75 regular season games, and he was third in the NBA in 3-pointers made per game (3.3). The Rockets are rumored to be shopping Patrick Beverley and Williams, but Gordon likely isn't going anywhere with three more years left on his deal.

Malcolm Brogdon won the 2017 Rookie of the Year Award.

Joel Embiid would've been the favorite, but ultimately didn't play in enough games. Dario Saric was also deserving, but Milwaukee's strong season likely factored into this decision. Brogdon had a solid season with averages of 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 45.7 percent shooting, becoming the first player to win the Rookie of the Year Award without a single Rookie of the Month Award since 2001-02. The Bucks used their first round pick on a big in D.J. Wilson and don't have much cap space to work with, so Brogdon should have a similar role in 2017-18.

The Hawks have officially extended a qualifying offer to Tim Hardaway Jr.

The move makes THJ a restricted free agent, meaning the Hawks can match any offer he receives from other teams. Hardaway Jr. is coming off a breakout season with averages of 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.9 triples, and the Hawks made it clear that one of their top priorities is to bring him back. Entering his age-25 season, THJ will be one of the top free agent SGs on the market along with J.J. Redick, Dion Waiters and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Trail Blazers' GM Neil Olshey said that Jusuf Nurkic (leg), Ed Davis (shoulder) and Allen Crabbe (foot) are all expected to be good to go for training camp.

Nurkic's 2016-17 campaign was cut short after he sustained a non-displaced fibular fracture in late-March, but he was pretty fantastic in the 20 games he played for Portland this past season, pumping out averages of 15.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals, 1.9 blocks and 3.1 turnovers per game on 50.8 percent shooting from the field, which was good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. Nurkic will be in a contract year next season, so he could be in for a monster Year-3.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Minnesota "remains intent" on trading Ricky Rubio.

Stein adds that the one of the reasons why Rubio could be on the move is the Wolves are looking for more shooting. This report contradicts Wolves GM Scott Layden's comments this week, as Layden said the team was "planning" on keeping Rubio and gushed about his strong finish to the 2016-17 season. With Kris Dunn in Chicago, whoever the Wolves bring back in a deal for Rubio would immediately step into a large role in Minnesota. For now, it doesn't sound like a deal is in the works yet. Rubio has two years and $29 million left on his deal, so the Wolves won't give him away for cheap.

The Cavaliers, Pacers and Nuggets have reportedly discussed a three-team deal that would send Paul George to Cleveland, with Kevin Love going to Denver.

To be clear, nothing is imminent and there's no mention of what Indiana would get in this scenario -- Denver would likely send them a combination of young players and draft picks. It would be a very interesting move from the Nuggets, who acquired Trey Lyles on draft day but could lose Danilo Gallinari in free agency. Chris Haynes reports that Denver would be willing to give up Kenneth Faried in a potential deal, with Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay also "available." Stay tuned.

The Mavericks have officially declined Dirk Nowitzki's team option for next season and will begin negotiating a new deal.

There's no reason for Dallas fans to panic, as this was a mutual decision to give the Mavericks more financial flexibility this summer. Nowitzki was originally going to be on the books for $25 million in 2017-18, but now one of the options being discussed is a new two-year contract. The Mavericks made it clear that their priority this summer was to re-sign Nerlens Noel and develop their young talent, but their ability to make a splash in free agency hinges on how much of a discount Nowitzki is willing to take.

Seth Curry said he still wants to play both guard positions now that Dallas has Dennis Smith Jr.

He said DSJ can also score off the ball and added he'll do whatever coach Rick Carlisle wants him to do. Late in last season, the Mavs opted to give Curry a longer look at point guard and he did have some success in that role before his shoulder injury Although, his best stretch last year was as a shooting guard in February, averaging 16.7 points, 2.9 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 treys on a tidy 66.1 true shooting percentage in those 11 games. Curry could be a sixth man for the Mavs, but he could still have value with minutes in the mid-20s.
