Luol Deng may need root canals to repair the damage done by Spencer Hawes' elbow on Thursday.

Deng said that his "whole bottom jaw is out of line," he's having trouble eating, and some of his teeth were knocked loose, but true to form he still played a game-high 44 minutes on Saturday. We're considering him probable for Sunday's game, and he said he'll know if he needs a root canal in "a few days." The Bulls don't have more than two days off at any point in March.

Wesley Matthews has agreed to a four-year deal with the Mavericks.

The details have not been revealed yet, but it's likely less than the four-year, $64 million offer from the Kings. Matthews will step into Monta Ellis' role at shooting guard and should have plenty of chances to score, especially with the Mavs not having as much firepower as the Blazers last season. It's also worth mentioning that Wes wants to play with DeAndre Jordan, so this helps Dallas in that regard. As for the Kings, they might want to bring a Connect Four game to their meeting with Rajon Rondo.

The Spurs, Suns and Mavs are "out front" to sign LaMarcus Aldridge, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

The Mavs are interesting here, but they're likely way behind the Spurs and Suns. Aldridge is having dinner with Pat Riley and he's already met with the Lakers. Hopefully, LaMarcus comes to a decision soon, but he's certainly getting his share of meetings and free meals.

The Clippers and Mavs are "truly 50-50" to sign DeAndre Jordan, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

He's not going to make a decision tonight and it could come during the weekend. Jordan is going to get a max deal after leading the NBA in rebounds and field goal percentage. Whoever misses out here is really going to have a tough time finding a capable center.

The Lakers called Rajon Rondo on Thursday to "touch base," according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com.

Up until this point, the Kings were the only team expressing interest in Rondo. While calling a player is hardly enough to classify as serious interest, the Kings now have another team to worry about. Rondo can probably expect the Kings to make a bigger offer now.

Robin Lopez has committed to the Knicks and will sign with them unless DeAndre Jordan chooses the Knicks.

In other words, Lopez is on the Knicks. While Lopez won't come cheap, he is actually a very good fit with them. He ranked third in the NBA for offensive rebounds in the 2013-14 season, he doesn't have many fouling issues, he's been very healthy in his career and he'll have a low usage rate on offense, which Carmelo Anthony will like. Lopez did have a down year in 2014-15, but he could wind up being a mid-round guy in standard leagues next season.

Updating a previous item, the Kings are offering Wesley Matthews a four-year, $64 million deal.

That buys a lot of bow and arrows. The Kings are as all in as they could possibly be and there's no way a team is going to outbid them. They made their bed last night by giving up a ton of assets to Sam Hinkie, so Matthews and his agent have all the leverage. They're using it and could make Matthews the highest paid player on the Kings.

The Spurs and Wizards are the favorites to sign unrestricted free agent David West.

This confirms a similar report from USA Today, so it would appear we're down to a two-horse race. West is expected to take a serious pay cut because he wants to win a title. He would be a backup on the Spurs -- assuming they land LaMarcus Aldridge -- and would have more fantasy value on the Wizards.
Jul 2 - 10:26 PM

Unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez is discussing a deal with the Knicks in the range of $12-13 million per season.

The Knicks were always going to overpay for Ro-Lo, so this is not a surprise. As one of the best offensive rebounders in the NBA, he should have success next to Carmelo Anthony. Plus, if Kristaps Porzingis can develop quickly to stretch the floor, it would almost be an ideal situation for him from a schematic standpoint.

Damian Lillard is planning an impromptu visit to Los Angeles to try and convince LaMarcus Aldridge to re-sign with the Blazers.

He is returning from Paris and is wasting no time on being the franchise player. Aldridge wants to play power forward more often, which might not happen quite as much with the Blazers now that Robin Lopez is likely to be overpaid by another team. Lillard will need another very clutch performance here.

The Lakers have reportedly expressed interest in Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire is well past his days of being a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues. His body simply can't handle major minutes, so wherever he signs, he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.
Jul 2 - 7:04 PM

The Wizards are reportedly nearing in on a deal that will net them Jared Dudley.

Dudley would likely serve in a mentorship role for guys like Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre, but he won't have any fantasy value with the Wizards.
