Avery Johnson had reportedly "lost several members of the locker room" before his firing on Thursday, according to the New York Times.

One friend of Johnson's told the New York Times that Deron Williams had "totally quit on Avery," while the report states that "the relationship between Williams and Johnson has been uneasy since the start, but it eroded this season under weight of greater expectations." D-Will said that Johnson was a big reason why he re-signed with the Nets, but his actions speak louder than his words. There was some "suspicion surrounding Kris Humphries" and his mysterious abdominal injury, as well. Both Williams (wrist) and Humphries (abdomen) are expected to play Friday.

Derrick Rose and the Lakers had a meeting for about three hours on Thursday, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

The report adds that both sides feel good about it -- #WentWell, of course. Rose is expected to have more meetings this weekend with the Cavs as the toughest competition. There's a good chance Rose can play some shooting guard for both of these teams, but the Lakers will likely be offering more of a scoring opportunity.

The Lakers will meet with free agent PG Derrick Rose on Thursday.

The Cavaliers have reportedly offered Rose a one-year deal worth anywhere from $2.1 to $2.5 million, while the Lakers can offer a $4.3M exception. It's no secret that they want to bring in a veteran to mentor Lonzo Ball, and ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said the Lakers believe "they can offer more playing time in a better environment after his tumultuous year in New York." While no deal is imminent, it seems like the Cavaliers and the Lakers are the frontrunners to sign Rose, while the Bucks are fading from view.

Troy Williams has agreed to a 3-year deal to stay with the Houston Rockets.

The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed, but he will have to earn the second and third seasons. Williams played well in stints with the Rockets and Grizzlies last season, but he really made an impression in Vegas during the Summer League with averages of 22.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.4 treys. The 22-year-old wing looks like he's ready to contribute next season, so he'll be in the mix to fill the void left by Sam Dekker.

Derrick Rose is in "serious talks" with the Cavaliers on a one-year deal according to ESPN.

Rose is the top free agent PG left on the market, but he's drawn very little interest so far. The Bucks were considered a potential suitor last week, but the two sides weren't able to schedule a meeting for reasons unknown. Rose would be an odd fit in Cleveland because they already have Kyrie Irving, but it's at least worth noting that Irving excels off the ball. In order to join the Cavs, Rose would have to take a discount because they can only offer a portion of the taxpayer midlevel exception (up to $2.5 million) or a veteran's minimum deal according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today.

The Wolves are working on a five-year extension for Andrew Wiggins according to head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The extension would be worth nearly $148 million, but it wouldn't kick in until 2018-19. Wiggins has already established himself as an elite scorer with a career-high 23.2 points per game last season, but Thibodeau said he wants to see him become a "complete player" and believes Jimmy Butler will help with his development. Wiggins was only a 10th-round value in standard leagues last season due to a lack of peripheral stats, but he's still only 22 and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Damian Lillard said he's reached out to Carmelo Anthony and said it's a "real possibility" that Anthony could join the Blazers.

The Blazers reportedly have made it clear they won't be involved in a Melo trade unless they're the ones getting the All-Star forward. Lillard isn't usually the recruiting type, but C.J. McCollum has touched on this subject and even posted a photoshopped picture of Anthony in a Blazers uniform. Anthony does have a no-trade clause and several reports say he wants to go to Houston, so the Rockets should be considered as the frontrunners.

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.

Mario Chalmers will sign a one-year deal with Memphis according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The deal is only partially guaranteed for one year, so he's still not a lock to make the 15-man roster. Chalmers hasn't played in the NBA since tearing his Achilles back in March of 2016, but he's healthy again and it's nice to see him get another shot. He will battle Wade Baldwin for the backup PG role, so he won't have much fantasy value in Memphis.
Jul 18 - 10:31 PM

Ty Lawson has agreed to a deal with the Shanxi Dragons of China.

Lawson had an okay year with the Kings this past season, compiling averages of 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game, but most teams around the league have already filled the point guard position, so the market never really materialized for Lawson. It's not currently clear if his CBA contract will include an NBA-out clause, but he'll definitely be making more money overseas this season than he could in the NBA.
Jul 18 - 7:09 PM

Willie Reed has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Clippers.

Reed will have a similar role in Los Angeles to the one he had with Miami last season, operating as DeAndre Jordan's primary backup. His minutes will likely be in the teens on most nights, so Reed won't be on the floor enough to make any meaningful contributions in fantasy hoops.
Jul 18 - 2:39 PM

The Spurs are reportedly working to finalize a deal with unrestricted free agent Pau Gasol.

Gasol opted out of his contract back in June, but he did that to free up cap space for the Spurs, and the narrative has always been that he would eventually re-up with San Antonio on a long-term deal. Gasol was a top-75 option with the Spurs last season despite only playing 25.4 minutes a night, contributing averages of 12.4 points, 7.8 boards, 2.4 dimes, 0.9 triples and 1.1 blocks per contest. However, we'll likely see a slight regression in those numbers during his age-37 season.
