Stephen Jackson injured his right ankle in the first quarter of Thursday's game and he will not return.

He took a jumper in the corner and his foot landed on a waitress that was serving New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Jackson had a pretty bad limp as he headed to the locker room and was moving very slowly. Kawhi Leonard, who has been cold, could see some extra playing time along with Danny Green.

Jimmy Butler is "considering accepting" the Bulls' max five-year contract offer, according to RealGM's Shams Charania.

The contract would reportedly include a player option for the 2019-20 season and Butler "plans to sleep on [the] decision." This undermines previous reports stating that Butler preferred a one-year deal with the Lakers, and the maximum salary offered may be enough to keep Jimmy in Chicago long-term. He could make his decision as soon as Wednesday.

The Brooklyn Nets are nearing an agreement to re-sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young.

There doesn't appear to be any drama in Brooklyn right now, and it sounds like the Nets could have a deal in place for both players very soon. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year, $60 million deal, while Young is targeting a four-year, $50 million deal. Stay tuned.

Al-Farouq Aminu has agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with the Trail Blazers.

Aminu was reportedly a target of the Celtics, Raptors, Pelicans, Knicks and Mavericks, but Portland ponied up a lot of cash to bring him to Rip City. The Blazers recently traded Nicolas Batum and could lose Wesley Matthews and Arron Afflalo in free agency, so Aminu will almost certainly be starting at small forward on opening night. Aminu averaged 11.2 points, 7.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 2.0 steals and 1.4 3-pointers in 30.0 minutes per game during the playoffs last season, so we know what he can do with an expanded role. Aminu is shaping up to be a steal in the later rounds of fantasy drafts next season.

Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs have agreed on the framework of a five-year contract worth more than $90 million.

Even this maximum-salary contract is a relative bargain for the Spurs, who locked up the reigning Defensive Player of the Year for roughly $18 million per season as he heads into his prime. Details haven't been disclosed but the deal is expected to include an early termination option for the 2019-20 season. With Leonard secured for the foreseeable future the Spurs can turn their full attention to coveted FA LaMarcus Aldridge -- yes, Kawhi will be at the meeting to lure him to San Antonio.

Anthony Davis and the Pelicans have verbally agreed upon a five-year, $145 million deal.

Well, that was quick. Davis will have a player option for the fifth year but Pelicans fans can breathe easy with this news. Davis is quickly establishing himself as one of the best players in the NBA and it will be exciting to see what he can do with Alvin Gentry at the helm. For obvious reasons, Davis is still the frontrunner to be the No. 1 pick in fantasy leagues.

Unrestricted free agent Kevin Love is expected to meet with the Lakers this week.

The Suns have also expressed interest and the Celtics are hoping to meet with Love, but most teams are hedging their bets since he's widely expected to return to Cleveland. FOX Sports' Sam Amico reported this week that Love has told the Cavs he'll re-sign, and the team reportedly plans to offer him a five-year deal worth more than $110 million. We're not reading much into his meeting with the Lakers, in other words, but anything is possible.

The 2015-16 salary cap may be as much as $2 million higher than originally projected, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

The NBA had robust revenue this season and the cap is expected to be at least $68.1 million, or possibly higher. The official figure will be determined on July 8 and a higher salary cap would be welcome news for teams attempting to clear space for free agents in the coming weeks.

Tyson Chandler will draw "significant interest" from the Bucks as an unrestricted free agent.

If the Mavs are able to pry away DeAndre Jordan from the Clippers, that will likely signify the end of Chandler's time in Dallas. Jason Kidd won a championship playing alongside Chandler with the Mavs back in 2011, and he reportedly loves him, so Milwaukee could emerge as a legitimate landing spot for Chandler.

Jared Dudley has reportedly picked up his player option to remain with the Bucks next season for $4.25 million.

This was a pretty easy decision for Dudley as it was unlikely he could have secured such a deal on the open market. He averaged just 7.2 points, 1.0 steal and 1.0 three-pointer per game last season, and he'll be in a reserve role with the Bucks next year. It'll take more than a few injuries for him to emerge as a viable asset in standard leagues.

Both Joel Embiid (foot) and Nerlens Noel were left off the 76ers' Summer League roster.

76ers' GM Sam Hinkie said that he did not anticipate Embiid playing in Summer League after his most recent setback, and it looks like that will be the case. There's a legitimate chance that Embiid misses the entire 2015-16 season, and if that is how this thing plays out, Noel and Jahlil Okafor will get all the minutes they can handle in Philadelphia's frontcourt.
Jun 30 - 5:41 PM

The Bucks, Pelicans and Knicks are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Blazers remain in the mix, but after acquiring Mason Plumlee, they may elect to let Lopez walk if the offers get to rich for their liking. Alvin Gentry coached Lopez during his first four years in the league with the Suns, so that could perhaps tilt the odds in New Orleans' favor in luring away Robin from Portland.
