Updating a previous item, Anthony Morrow will indeed start against the Magic on Wednesday.

The Hawks will rest DeShawn Stevenson in the first half of a back-to-back and Kyle Korver will be limited after missing the last five games due to back spasms and the birth of his child. Still, Morrow's time in the sun will likely be limited. The 27-year old is averaging just 5.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game this season and will have to show much more than that before we can recommend him for any consideration.

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.

Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio and would prefer to be traded to the Lakers, according to Chris Haynes and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports is reporting the same info. It's clear that Kawhi and his camp wanted to make sure they got their point across. Per Shams, "Leonard has grown uncomfortable with the Spurs and is ready for a move." Leonard, who only appeared in nine games last season due to a debilitating quad injury and can opt out of his contract next summer, was reportedly set to meet with Gregg Popovich in New York this week. We can expect plenty of developments between now and the draft, but it appears Leonard may have played his last game as a Spur.

Michigan State F Jaren Jackson Jr. will have a workout with the Mavs this week, according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz.

JJJ has 3-point range while boasting the length, size and athleticism to protect the rim, so he's obviously turning heads as the draft approaches. He reportedly had a "monster" workout for the Suns, with GM Ryan McDonough calling him "one of the more underrated players in this draft. He recently worked out for the Hawks, who have the No. 3 pick, but maybe there's a chance he slides to the Mavs at No. 5.

Magic spokesman Joel Glass revealed on Wednesday that Jonathon Simmons underwent right wrist surgery on April 24.

Simmons sat out the final 12 games of the 2017-18 season due to what the Magic labeled a "right wrist contusion," but after visiting a hand specialist and getting an MRI after the conclusion of the season, it was concluded that surgical intervention was necessary. The Magic still haven't offered an official timetable for Simmons, but he has until late-September to get himself right for training camp.

Kevin Huerter, who is expected to be a first-round pick in the 2018 draft, reportedly underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right hand on Wednesday.

Huerter is expected to make a full recovery in two months' time, and while he will be forced to miss Summer League, this isn't expected to dramatically affect his draft stock. He was reportedly dealing with the hand injury at the combine, but played through it, only shutting down his workouts once he received a promise from a team selecting in the 20s. The Jazz have expressed a lot of interest in Huerter to this point, so maybe they were the ones that promised to grab him.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Raptors are hiring assistant Nick Nurse as the franchise's new head coach.

The Raptors interviewed a number of prospective candidates since they fired Dwane Casey last month. The final two candidates were reportedly Nurse and Spurs assistant Ettore Messina. Nurse had been an assistant under Casey for the last five years. He was previously the head coach of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Iowa Energy of the G-League. Per Woj, both sides are still working through the details of the contract.
