Jeff Teague hit just 2-of-6 shots to finish with five points, three rebounds, zero assists, a 3-pointer and a block in 22 minutes Tuesday, when he also picked up five fouls in a loss to the Timberwolves.

Yuck. Coach Larry Drew was furious with the team's energy to start the game, as a late comeback attempt came up just short. He promised changes could be coming for the Hawks if things don't get turned around soon (they've lost three straight), and given tonight's performance, Teague's job could be in jeopardy. Lou Williams had 21 points and eight assists tonight, and while we're not about to tell you to do anything drastic with Teague, this situation will be one to watch closely when the Hawks visit Cleveland on Wednesday. Teague has scored five or fewer points in three of his last four games, and has a total of four assists in his last two, so we're not just imagining things here.

The Dallas Mavericks haven't submitted Chandler Parsons' offer sheet to the Rockets as of Thursday afternoon.

This is good news for the Rockets as don't have the 72-hour countdown ticking as they wait for Chris Bosh's decision on their max contract offer. The Mavericks are reportedly waiting to submit the offer sheet in case a sign-and-trade materializes that general manager Donnie Nelson thinks could help both teams. "There’s ways that both sides can win, so it’s just an ongoing process," Nelson said on Thursday. It is assumed that Houston will match Parsons' offer sheet if Bosh decides to join the Rockets, but this situation is just another that has been put in LeBron stand-by mode.

Portland Trail Blazers sign G Steve Blake.

Blake's deal will reportedly be under Portland's bi-annual exception for $4.2 million over two years and the second year is a player option. Blake averaged 6.9 points, 1.4 3-pointers, and 5.6 assists per game with the Lakers and Warriors last season and will serve as a backup point guard who can also play shooting guard for the Blazers. This move doesn't necessarily rule out Mo Williams' return to Rip City, but it would seem unlikely at this point.

The Rockets will match Chandler Parson's offer sheet if they are able to land Chris Bosh, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Parsons signed a 3-year, $45 million offer sheet with the Mavericks on Wednesday and the Rockets will match that offer sheet if they are able to pry Bosh away from the Heat. The puzzle pieces get a little more complicated if Bosh stays with Miami and matching the offer sheet would become a "close call", according to Feigen. LeBron James' destination would seemingly be the first domino that will set off this chain of events, so we'll be closely monitoring his decision and its concurrent ripple effects.

Pau Gasol met with general manager Mitch Kupchak at the team's practice facility on Wednesday night.

The Lakers look like they're going to miss out on the big free agents, so they'll have tons of money to bring back Gasol. The Bulls could also pry Gasol from the Lakers and may be closer to competing for a title since they come out of the Eastern Conference. The Thunder and Spurs are also in the mix, but would only be able to offer him a small deal. Gasol's fantasy value would likely be maximized in Los Angeles.

James Johnson has reportedly agreed in principle to a two-year contract with the Toronto Rapots.

This will be Johnson's second stint with the Raptors after a mini-breakout season with the Grizzlies in 2013-14. Johnson averaged 8.5 points, 0.5 3-pointers, 4.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.6 blocks in 22 minutes pr game after the All-Star break with the Grizzlies and he could end up being a valuable fantasy asset in standard leagues if he's able to carve out more minutes in Toronto.

LeBron James has all the information he needs from teams and will no longer take meetings, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

The report has been confirmed by USA Today's Sam Amick, Marc Spears of Yahoo!, and ESPN's Chris Broussard, so these reports are almost factual. LeBron met with Heat president Pat Riley on Wednesday and didn't make a decision, so that will go down as one of the most important free agent meetings in NBA history. It's certainly interesting that he won't meet with the Cavs (unless a secret meeting went down last weekend) because David Blatt is new to being an NBA coach and David Griffin is their new general manager. Hopefully, he'll have a decision in the next couple days.

Greivis Vasquez has reached an agreement to re-sign with the Raptors for $13 million over two years.

He was a restricted free agent, but there was never really a doubt he'd be coming back, especially after the Raptors traded away Steve Novak. Vasquez gets a hefty raise here from just $2.1 million last year, so the Raptors may have went a bit over market value for a backup point guard. They also dropped $48 million over four years for their starter Kyle Lowry. The Raptors also have brought in Lou Williams in another trade this summer. Wanna guess what their favorite position is this offseason?

David Aldridge is reporting that Chris Bosh doesn't have a contingency plan with the Rockets in case LeBron James leaves the Heat, which is contrary to most other reports out there.

Aldridge says he's been told "strongly' that Bosh has no deal with the Rockets, which would mean the signing of LeBron by any team would still result in mystery theater across the rest of the league. There's still a decent chance Bosh could end up in Houston, with LeBron going 'home' to Cleveland, but we'll obviously have to wait and see what becomes of 'The Decision, Part II.'

The Timberwolves are willing to let the market "play out" until LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh make their decisions, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It makes sense. There are going to be multiple teams missing the boat on making a splash in free agency, so those teams may be more willing to overpay. The latest rumor is Love for Andrew Wiggins, but there would have to be other moving parts for that to work. The Wolves keep pushing back their expectations on dealing the All-Star, but they'll be dealing him at some point.
Jul 9 - 9:40 PM

Chris Bosh has decided to sign with the Rockets if LeBron James leaves the Heat, according to ESPN.com.

This isn't really a breaking report and the word on the street has been Bosh isn't going to play in Miami without LeBron. It's hard to believe the Heat will suddenly be left out of the free-agency game of musical chairs after things looked so great when Dwyane Wade opted out of the last two years of his deal worth $41.5 million. Chandler Parsons agreed to an offer sheet, which means the Rockets will have three days from Thursday morning to match. Obviously, they would love a decision from Bosh before those three days are up.

Unrestricted free agent Mike Miller is getting close to agreeing to terms with the Nuggets, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

The Cavaliers are believed to be after Miller and his market value seems to be on the rise. Miller had a tough time staying healthy before last season, so it should be interesting to see if the Nuggets are willing to pay more than $4 million to bring him on board. He'll have very little fantasy value.
