Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo said that he will consider resting players like Deron Williams (ankles) and Joe Johnson (heel) down the stretch.

Uh oh. Carlesimo spent six years as an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich, and it seems he's stealing a page from Pop's playbook. After explicitly praising Pop's willingness to bench his stars, Carlesimo said, "We could be looking at having to [rest players] because it's the best thing for those guys." With Brooklyn comfortably situated at fourth place in the East, D-Will is high on the list of candidates for random DNPs down the stretch.

Paul Millsap has agreed to a three-year, $59 million deal to stay with the Hawks.

It's likely a three-year deal with the a player option for the third year. Millsap signing a deal is a big domino to fall here, so there are likely going to be some lesser power forwards agreeing to deals now. Millsap was wonderful with the Hawks last year and is great in their system, so look for him in the second round of drafts.

Brandan Wright and the Grizzlies have agreed on a three-year deal worth nearly $18 million.

He's an interesting player to the Grizzlies rotation in their second unit, which will be able to play with a bit more pace now. Wright picked up big playing time in April with the Suns, averaging 10.6 points, 7.0 boards, 2.2 blocks and 1.4 steals in 30.8 minutes per game during that span. He'll be someone to watch if Marc Gasol misses time due to injury. To be clear, the Grizzlies are heavy favorites to land Gasol.

The Suns have "moved into a contending position" to sign LaMarcus Aldridge, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

There are some things helping the Suns here. Newly-added assistant coach Earl Watson was close to LMA while with the Blazers and was at the meeting with him, the Suns could potentially offer more money than the non-Blazer teams in a sign-and-trade deal, and they also have a $5.5 million trade exception from the Goran Dragic trade. Yes, San Antonio is the favorite, but the Suns are interesting to say the least. They also have a slew of guards to offer in a trade.

The Mavericks met with unrestricted free agent DeAndre Jordan for 4.5 hours.

The Mavs were not able to bring back Tyson Chandler, so they're going to be all in on Jordan here. He's from Texas, the Mavs can offer max money, and he would work nicely in coach Rick Carlisle's system.

Unrestricted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge and Kobe Bryant "didn't quite gel" at their meeting.

LMA reportedly "didn't quite get answers from Kobe we was seeking." The Lakers have a lot of attractive parts of their franchise, but it's really going to be hard to convince free agents to sign there with Kobe's $25 million on the books this upcoming season.

The Lakers will not be signing LaMarcus Aldridge, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times.

According to this credible report, Aldridge disliked the basketball part of the presentation, which is a fairly important part of basketball free agency. The Lakers were considered as the No. 2 team to land Aldridge, so the Spurs' chances are looking even better.
Jul 1 - 4:37 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge is planning to finish his meetings before making a decision.

There are multiple reports that he's very impressed with the Spurs. Considering the Spurs have already moved Tiago Splitter in order to get Aldridge, they are the favorites to land him. Of course, the Suns could sneak in there with the possibility of a sign-and-trade, which may include Eric Bledsoe.

Monta Ellis is in Indiana to meet with Larry Bird and the Pacers.

The Pacers are reportedly prepared to offer a three-year, $32 million deal, so they might actually get a deal done after this meeting. If it doesn't go down, expect the Kings, Heat and Mavs to get a crack at Monta.
Jul 1 - 4:19 PM

The Knicks are planning to meet with unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez in Los Angeles.

A New York Lopez rivalry? The Knicks were gashed in the paint last year and could use a guy like Lopez to help them on the glass. He's much more durable than his brother, but Robin isn't quite the offensive presence.
Jul 1 - 4:09 PM

Jonas Jerebko will sign a two-year, $10 million deal with the Celtics.

Apparently his awful four postseason games against the Cavs didn't matter. Jerebko did come on down the stretch during the regular season and even put up a 16-point game in the finale, but this big of a contract is a slight surprise.
Jul 1 - 3:42 PM

Restricted free agent Kyle Singler has agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal with the Thunder.

There aren't many players getting five-year deals and Singler is one of the bigger surprises. Chances are this is a cap-friendly deal for a guy who might not even be in the rotation. The last year of this deal is a team option.
