Ricky Rubio (back, knee) will not travel with the Wolves for their two-game road trip that starts Wednesday in Utah.

Rubio's back is stiff, so the Wolves don't want to put him on a flight and then have him sit out. He wasn't going to play in the second half of the back-to-back thanks to his ACL rehab anyway. Rubio will rest up and aim to return for his usual 18-22 minutes in Saturday's home game against the Blazers. The news makes Luke Ridnour a good bet for 30-plus minutes in each of the next two games.

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have agreed to a contract buyout.

Wade was owed $23.8 million but he'll leave approximately $8 million on the table in the buyout, which allows him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it should't take long for Wade to strike a new deal -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs are the "clear frontrunner," but the Spurs, Heat and Thunder are also mentioned as possibilities.

Tony Parker (left quad surgery) is targeting a return "at the end of November," nearly two months ahead of his original timetable.

"I got some good news," Parker said. "My tendon is healed ... I think I need another two months." This is very encouraging but it doesn't guarantee that he will help fantasy owners before the new year, since the Spurs will be extra cautious with their 35-year-old stalwart. "I will have to convince Pop now," Parker added. "If it were up to him, I would not play before the playoffs." In his absence, Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills should split minutes at PG.

Nikola Mirotic has agreed to a two-year, $27 million deal to return to Chicago.

Mirotic's new deal with the Bulls reportedly includes a team option on Year-2, and will give him veto power on any potential trade this season. At the very least, Mirotic should be able to match last year's numbers of 10.6 points, 5.5 boards and 1.8 triples per contest, which was good enough for 10th round value. His inconsistency can be annoying, and he'll constantly have Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen nipping at his heels for minutes, so Mirotic's upside isn't quite what it used to be.

Alex Len signed his $4.2 million qualifying offer with the Suns on Sunday.

The two sides were able to complete the deal right before training camp opens. The Suns wanted to see more from Len before committing to him for the long term, so this is his chance to prove himself before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2018. With Alan Williams on the shelf with a knee injury, Len could open the season in a timeshare with Tyson Chandler and will have some low-end value.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said there might be some situations late in the game that Tim Hardaway Jr. plays some point guard.

"That would probably rarely happen, but he’s a guy that we’re counting on to do the things we want to do in this offense and get the speed, and he’s a young guy with a lot of motor," he said. Hornacek added that he's going to challenge THJ to keep improving on the defensive end. The Knicks clearly have high hopes for the $71 million man and he looks like the No. 2 option on offense behind Kristaps Porzingis with Carmelo Anthony now in OKC. He's a bargain at his current ADP in the late rounds.

The Knicks have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony to Oklahoma City in exchange for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a draft pick, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The pick headed to New York is the Bulls 2018 second-rounder. The Knicks are obviously giving up the best player in the deal without getting back anything close to equal value, but their leverage was limited by the fact that Melo had a no-trade clause. It will be fascinating to see how Anthony fits in alongside Russell Westbrook and Paul George in OKC. All three players finished within the top-20 overall in Usage Rate last season and will now be forced to make sacrifices on the offensive end. Melo won't be able to match the numbers he posted as the focal point in New York.

The Suns acquired Troy Daniels and a 2018 second-round pick from Memphis for a top-55 protected in pick 2018.

The Grizzlies have some decent depth at guard with Wayne Selden playing well and Tyreke Evans in the mix. Daniels was one of coach David Fizdale's guys and his quote saying he had a "money green" light to shoot was a cool story last year. Daniels likely won't be in the rotation to start the season.

Gerald Green has agreed on a deal to sign with the Bucks.

It's a non-guaranteed deal for camp, but Green could compete for a roster spot. It's possible Green or Brandon Rush will be the choice as the last veteran wing on the 15-man roster. Green made a noteworthy impact in the postseason with coach Brad Stevens mixing it up, but he likely wouldn't be in the rotation to start the season.

Markieff Morris had sports hernia surgery on Friday and is expected to be out 6-8 weeks.

That means he will miss the start of the season and he could miss up to 15 games. Morris had himself a strong 2016-17 season and logged more minutes at center than he had in his previous time with the Wizards. With him out, Jason Smith, Kelly Oubre and Marcin Gortat should pick up some extra minutes. Fantasy owners may not want to draft Morris unless stashing won't hurt.

Kris Humphries plans to sign a non-guaranteed deal with the 76ers, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

He worked out with the 76ers on Monday and Tuesday, so he is fully expected to be with the team for the start of camp. Humphries is going to be buried on the depth chart, but he could make the roster as emergency depth. The 32-year-old played 56 games with the Hawks last season and doesn't have fantasy value.

Damian Lillard said he would like to see Caleb Swanigan win Rookie of the Year.

We're reading between the lines on this tweet, but the timing is interesting. Dame saying Swanigan over lottery pick Zach Collins could suggest that Swanigan may be the man to help fill the void left by Noah Vonleh (shoulder). Swanigan is one of the best rebounding prospects to come out this year, which could help after Portland's subpar rebounding recently. The Purdue product lit it up in Las Vegas and he's now on the radar in deep leagues.
