Latest Headlines

Both ESPN's Chris Broussard and CBS' Ken Berger are reporting that the Bucks and Hawks are talking about a trade involving Monta Ellis and Josh Smith.

The Hawks reportedly think that Ellis and Jeff Teague would mesh well together in their backcourt. The Bucks, meanwhile, have bigger plans up their sleeve. If they can pry Smith from the Hawks, they'd perhaps then try to trade defensive stopper Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and a pick to the Magic for J.J. Redick. That would leave them with a very solid starting five of Brandon Jennings, Redick, Ersan Ilyasova, Smith and Larry Sanders. It's a potential deal to monitor as the Hawks weigh their options ahead of Thursday's deadline.

Dwyane Wade is expected to be with LeBron James on his flight from Las Vegas to Miami on Thursday night.

Things are definitely getting interesting. Wade and LeBron spent a lot of time in Vegas together, so Miami may have a better chance at keeping LeBron than many thought. The flight to Miami isn't really worth reading into too much since it's much closer to Brazil than Vegas.

LeBron James is traveling back to Miami on Thursday night and will then travel to Brazil.

The Heat and Cavs are expecting him to make his choice before he goes to Brazil, according to Yahoo! Sports. He is expected to travel to Brazil on Saturday, so he'll have a little over a day to make his decision stateside. Of course, he could make his decision while in Brazil and do something associated with the World Cup -- ESPN does have a fancy set at the Copacabana beach after all. Regardless, it doesn't sound like we'll be hearing his decision on Thursday night.

The Suns will re-sign forward P.J. Tucker to a three-year, $16.5 million deal.

Considering some of the other deals being shelled out lately, this is a very good one for the Suns. Tucker outplayed his contract last year which paid him less than $1 million, but he turned out to be one of the better perimeter defenders in the NBA while adding a nice long-range game on offense. He'll be looking at a similar role next season unless rookie T.J. Warren usurps his playing time.

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.

Pau Gasol met with Lakers GM 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 Raptors.

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 per 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.
Jul 9 - 10:53 PM

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.'
Jul 9 - 10:09 PM

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.
