Pau Gasol will not return to a bench role when he returns from a concussion, according to Mike D'Antoni.

"That would be tough," D'Antoni said. "That's not my intention right now." The second quote indicates that D'Antoni could explore alternatives if the Lakers struggle once Gasol returns, but it's too early to read into that scenario. Earl Clark will remain in the rotation when Gasol is healthy, but he'll come off the bench.

Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is trying to bring in another All-Star to play alongside James Harden and Chris Paul, according to sources of Jeff Goodman of ESPN.

While Goodman doesn't name anyone directly in his report, Paul George stands out as one of the more obvious targets out there, and PG-13 has been linked to Houston numerous times in the past couple weeks. PG-13 partnering up with CP3 and Harden in Houston would make that squad an immediate contender out West, so it'll be interesting to see if Morey is able to pull off another blockbuster deal after wooing away Paul from Los Angeles.

Chris Paul will be traded to the Rockets in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and a 2018 first-round pick.

Paul reportedly informed that Clippers that he was going to sign with the Rockets as a free agent, which forced the Clippers to execute this deal rather than lose him for nothing. CP3's value should hold steady playing in Houston's uptempo offense, while James Harden should spend a bit more time playing off the ball, meaning Harden's assist numbers could take a slight hit although his scoring could increase. Paul is opting into the final year of his contract, so he'll hit free agency again in 2018.

Phil Jackson has agreed to step down as the Knicks' president of basketball operations and owner James Dolan is reportedly targeting Toronto's Masai Ujiri as Jackson's potential replacement.

Jackson definitely hit a home run when he drafted Kristaps Porzingis No. 4 overall in the 2015 NBA draft, but that's pretty much been the extent of his accomplishments during his three years at the helm of the Knicks' front office. He alienated stars like Carmelo Anthony and Porzingis, signed a washed up Joakim Noah to a four-year deal worth $72 million and went with Frank Ntilikina over Dennis Smith Jr. in the 2017 NBA draft due to his infatuation with the triangle offense. With Jackson getting the boot, there's a better chance Melo will remain a Knick, and GM Steve Mills will guide the team during free agency. It's unclear if Ujiri has any interest in joining the Knicks.

Jared Dudley underwent a left toe ligament and bone procedure and is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months.

This means Dudley could miss training camp and potentially the start of the 2017-18 season. Dudley has two years on his deal with Phoenix, but with the Suns rebuilding, he will likely be more of a locker room guy again in 2017-18. He averaged 6.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.2 3-pointers in 21.3 minutes per game last season, so fantasy owners can plan on ignoring him in most formats.

Jamal Murray played 2-on-2 on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing groin surgery back in April.

"He’s close. He thinks he’s ready to go right now," Connelly said. "Jamal is champing at the bit to play. He played two-on-two [Tuesday] morning, so his progression is coming along and he’s approaching rehab with the same aggression as he approaches play on the court. So I’m not surprised. He’s also huge right now. He’s put on good weight." Murray isn't expected to play at summer league, but he should be 100 percent by training camp. He could start at point for the Nuggets next season, so Murray could be in for a breakout Year-2 in Denver.

The Knicks reportedly have "legitimate" interest in re-signing Derrick Rose as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The Knicks reportedly aren't looking to pay a large salary to an incoming free agent, which could prove to be a sticking point for Rose, but at the same time, Rose's value is pretty depleted at the moment after yet another one of his seasons ended in knee surgery. If Rose does secure a deal with the Knicks this offseason, that'll put a damper on rookie Frank Ntilikina's fantasy potential.

The Celtics reportedly are reportedly pursuing a plan that would net them both Gordon Hayward and Paul George this offseason.

The Celtics will have the cap space to make a legitimate offer to Hayward, and the assets to present the Pacers with a competitive offer for Paul George, so they have the pieces in place to potentially put together a superteam of their own this offseason. Also, if the Celtics aren't able to secure Hayward via free agency, they will reportedly look to Blake Griffin as a plan B. If Boston is able to bring in another star player this offseason, Isaiah Thomas' value would take a slight hit.

Carmelo Anthony has reportedly recently tried to engage Knicks' management in talks regarding a buyout.

To be clear, Anthony's preference would be to remain in New York, and the Knicks have thus far resisted the idea of buying Melo out of his contract, but this is the first report we've seen indicating that Anthony is at least considering leaving the Knicks. The Knicks obviously would prefer to trade Anthony, but the no-trade clause in his contract complicates that situation. If Melo is able to work out a buyout with New York, Cleveland would be one of the early favorites to secure his services.

The Hornets announced on Tuesday that Malik Monk is doubtful to play in the Orlando Summer League due to a sprained left ankle.

Monk initially suffered the injury during the draft workout process. He will miss the Hornets summer league training camp in Charlotte, which begins on Wednesday. Per the team, Monk’s rehab is expected to last two to four weeks, and he's expected to be ready to participate in training camp prior to the start of the regular season. Although Hornets fans would like to get an early look at him, Charlotte has no reason to rush his rehab. Thus, it would be very surprising to see him suit up in Orlando.

Russell Westbrook was named the league MVP for the 2016-17 season.

Kevin Durant's departure set the franchise back several years, but Westbrook kept them relevant in the West by helping his team finish sixth in the West with a 47-35 record. Westbrook averaged a triple-double with 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds, 10.4 assists, 1.6 steals, 2.5 treys and 5.4 turnovers, breaking Oscar Robertson's record for most triple-doubles in a season with 43. Westy seems pretty happy to be the man in OKC and could be looking at an extension this worth $200+ million over five seasons this summer.

Draymond Green won the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year.

Rudy Gobert and Kawhi Leonard are every bit as deserving, but Green was due for one of these after Leonard took home the last two awards -- Green was the runner up the last two seasons. The two-time NBA champion's production slipped with Kevin Durant in Golden State, but he still was a top-25 player in standard leagues with averages of 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists. 1.4 blocks, 1.1 triples and a career-high 2.0 steals per game.
