Jarrett Jack will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday due to a bruised right shoulder.

He took a spill in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game and there were no reports of discomfort until now. It doesn't appear that this issue is serious and he should be considered questionable for Friday's game at Memphis. Stephen Curry and Charles Jenkins figure to pick up some of the slack while Harrison Barnes may get more minutes as well.

Jeremy Lin has agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

Linsanity is back in New York. Lin worked with Nets coach Kenny Atkinson during his time with the Knicks, so this is a great fit for the 27-year-old. Lin should be the starting PG on opening night and his fantasy value will get a significant boost, while Isaiah Whitehead and Caris LeVert lose a bit of value with this news. Lin's deal includes a player option for the third year.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Dwyane Wade has received multi-year offers from "rival" teams.

The report adds that rival executives will have the chance to speak with Wade on the phone Friday, so Heat fans have reason to be nervous. The Heat were able to reach an agreement on a max deal with Hassan Whiteside, but they're running out of cap room and it sounds like Wade will use this leverage to increase his value on the open market. He's already been linked to the Mavs and Spurs, but we'll let you know if any other teams surface.

Hassan Whiteside announced on his Snapchat that he will re-sign with the Miami Heat.

"I’ve played on eight teams since college — from Reno to Sioux Falls to Sichuan, China," Whiteside said. "I am not ready for there to be a ninth." It sounded like the Mavs were the favorites to sign Whiteside heading into July 1, but the Heat reportedly "swung back momentum" in their early Friday meeting. The deal is reportedly for four years and $98 million according to the Associated Press, the maximum that the Heat could offer. There's certainly a lot of risk involved with this deal, but he's an intriguing gamble after averaging 14.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and a league-best 3.7 blocked shots last season. For what it's worth, this means the Heat probably don't have a chance to bring Kevin Durant to Miami.

Andre Drummond and the Pistons are nearing an agreement on a five-year max deal in the $130 million range.

The NBA’s leading rebounder quickly cashes in despite his woeful 35.5 percent from the line last season. Drummond has been remarkably durable, missing just one game due to injury in his last three seasons. The NBA is expected to alter their intentional fouling rule, which should help Drummond stay on the floor throughout the game. He’s a good bet to match his league-leading 66 double-doubles from last season as a DFS monster in his upcoming age-23 season.

Nicolas Batum has reached an agreement with the Hornets on a five-year, $120 million deal.

This isn't close to the max for Batum, so it's pretty solid bargain for the Hornets -- relative to the other deals, of course. The Hornets not having to max Batum could help them bring on another free agent, including guys like Courtney Lee or Jeremy Lin. Batum does have a player option for the fifth season, as well. The 27-year-old Frenchman was terrific after the break, averaging 15.0 points, 5.4 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll be an early-round target in fantasy again.
Jul 1 - 4:05 AM

Jordan Clarkson has reached an agreement on a four-year, $50 million deal to stay with the Lakers.

The Gilbert Arenas rule meant Clarkson could have maxed out at $61 million on four years, so this is a fine deal for the Lakers. Clarkson will resume his role with minutes in the low 30s in what should be a faster, more-productive Lakers offense. Coach Luke Walton could maximize Clarkson, so he's on the radar as a mid-round pick in his age-24 season.
Jul 1 - 3:58 AM

D.J. Augustin has reached an agreement on a deal with the Magic.

The Magic get their backup point guard early. Augustin is actually a really nice complement to Elfrid Payton, making 40.5 percent from beyond the arc last season. The Magic could also use him in two-guard lineups. Augustin is still just 28 years old and should be looking at minutes close to 20. He's only an option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 3:53 AM

The Pistons have agreed to a three-year deal with Ish Smith.

This comes out of nowhere and the Pistons have their backup point guard. Smith ran Philadelphia's offense with 32.4 minutes per game, averaging 14.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 treys. He'll have to work on his range for coach Stan Van Gundy and he won't have anywhere close to as much fantasy value in Detroit. Additionally, Philadelphia really needs a point guard now.
Jul 1 - 3:34 AM

Unrestricted free agent Chandler Parsons was "really impressed" with Portland's presentation, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

Parsons has a meeting set up with the Grizzlies on Friday, but the Blazers should be considered as the favorites. They had owner Paul Allen, coach Terry Stotts, general manager Neil Olshey and Damian Lillard in the presentation to help show their vision for Parsons. He's coming off a big knee injury, but Parsons was fantastic after the break with averages of 17.6 points, 5.6 boards, 4.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.4 treys on a sterling 63.5 true shooting percentage.

Unrestricted free agent Eric Gordon "has emerged as Knicks' top perimeter target," according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The report adds the sides are "starting to discuss parameters of a possible deal." Derrick Rose reportedly reached out to Gordon, who joins Rose with a slew of injuries in his last few seasons. The Knicks are reportedly going to throw a lot of money at Joakim Noah, but the good news is they'll get some help at their two biggest needs. Gordon would lose fantasy value with the Knicks compared to last season.
Jul 1 - 2:36 AM

The Kings, Hawks, Mavericks and Bucks have all reached out to the camp of restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

The Cavs are likely going to retain Dellavedova, but they might have a hard time bringing him back if any of those teams offer a huge deal. Dellavedova will head into his age-26 season, so this contract will be at his prime. That said, his ceiling is likely as a career backup.
