John Wall (knee) is getting closer to returning, but the Wizards still don't have a timetable.

Randy Wittman said that Wall is doing "a little more each day" and that "progress is being made," but the team hasn't given updates outside of that. Wall hasn't had any setbacks, which is a good thing, but the team will treat its franchise player with kid gloves and will not allow him to return at less than 100 percent.

The Suns have officially guaranteed P.J. Tucker's contract for the 2016-17 season.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Mike Conley is "lasered in" on Memphis and Dallas.

Chandler Parsons and Conley have discussed playing together in Memphis, but Parsons won't follow him to Dallas if that's where the guard ends up. Stein hinted that the Grizzlies are in an "ultra-strong position," so it sounds like the Grizzlies are the favorites to re-sign him.

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, the Wizards deal with Bradley Beal is done.

The deal is expected to be worth around $128 million over five years, so Beal got the max deal that he demanded. While his talent is undeniable, the contract is pretty risky considering he's had some serious durability issues and has never played in more than 73 games in a season. Beal averaged 17.4 points, 3.4 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 treys in just 55 appearances last season.

Jeremy Lin has agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

Linsanity is back in New York. Lin worked with Nets coach Kenny Atkinson during his time with the Knicks, so this is a great fit for the 27-year-old. Lin should be the starting PG on opening night and his fantasy value will get a significant boost, while Isaiah Whitehead and Caris LeVert lose a bit of value with this news. Lin's deal includes a player option for the third year.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Dwyane Wade has received multi-year offers from "rival" teams.

The report adds that rival executives will have the chance to speak with Wade on the phone Friday, so Heat fans have reason to be nervous. The Heat were able to reach an agreement on a max deal with Hassan Whiteside, but they're running out of cap room and it sounds like Wade will use this leverage to increase his value on the open market. He's already been linked to the Mavs and Spurs, but we'll let you know if any other teams surface.

Hassan Whiteside announced on his Snapchat that he will re-sign with the Miami Heat.

"I’ve played on eight teams since college — from Reno to Sioux Falls to Sichuan, China," Whiteside said. "I am not ready for there to be a ninth." It sounded like the Mavs were the favorites to sign Whiteside heading into July 1, but the Heat reportedly "swung back momentum" in their early Friday meeting. The deal is reportedly for four years and $98 million according to the Associated Press, the maximum that the Heat could offer. There's certainly a lot of risk involved with this deal, but he's an intriguing gamble after averaging 14.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and a league-best 3.7 blocked shots last season. For what it's worth, this means the Heat probably don't have a chance to bring Kevin Durant to Miami.

Andre Drummond and the Pistons are nearing an agreement on a five-year max deal in the $130 million range.

The NBA’s leading rebounder quickly cashes in despite his woeful 35.5 percent from the line last season. Drummond has been remarkably durable, missing just one game due to injury in his last three seasons. The NBA is expected to alter their intentional fouling rule, which should help Drummond stay on the floor throughout the game. He’s a good bet to match his league-leading 66 double-doubles from last season as a DFS monster in his upcoming age-23 season.

Nicolas Batum has reached an agreement with the Hornets on a five-year, $120 million deal.

This isn't close to the max for Batum, so it's pretty solid bargain for the Hornets -- relative to the other deals, of course. The Hornets not having to max Batum could help them bring on another free agent, including guys like Courtney Lee or Jeremy Lin. Batum does have a player option for the fifth season, as well. The 27-year-old Frenchman was terrific after the break, averaging 15.0 points, 5.4 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll be an early-round target in fantasy again.
Jul 1 - 4:05 AM

Jordan Clarkson has reached an agreement on a four-year, $50 million deal to stay with the Lakers.

The Gilbert Arenas rule meant Clarkson could have maxed out at $61 million on four years, so this is a fine deal for the Lakers. Clarkson will resume his role with minutes in the low 30s in what should be a faster, more-productive Lakers offense. Coach Luke Walton could maximize Clarkson, so he's on the radar as a mid-round pick in his age-24 season.
Jul 1 - 3:58 AM

D.J. Augustin has reached an agreement on a deal with the Magic.

The Magic get their backup point guard early. Augustin is actually a really nice complement to Elfrid Payton, making 40.5 percent from beyond the arc last season. The Magic could also use him in two-guard lineups. Augustin is still just 28 years old and should be looking at minutes close to 20. He's only an option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 3:53 AM

The Pistons have agreed to a three-year deal with Ish Smith.

This comes out of nowhere and the Pistons have their backup point guard. Smith ran Philadelphia's offense with 32.4 minutes per game, averaging 14.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 treys. He'll have to work on his range for coach Stan Van Gundy and he won't have anywhere close to as much fantasy value in Detroit. Additionally, Philadelphia really needs a point guard now.
