Carmelo Anthony reported improvement in his right knee on Wednesday, but he remains questionable to play on Thursday.

Mike Woodson said that Melo told him "he felt better," but that doesn't give us any indication of his status for Thursday's game. The fluid could stem from a bone bruise or a larger cartilage issue, but all indications so far are that the injury is minor. It's a situation to monitor the rest of the way as it's likely not an issue that will simply subside.

The Sacramento Kings are probing Kentucky head coach John Calipari's interest in running the front office and coaching the team, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Coach Cal has reportedly been communicating with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive over the past few weeks and has listened to scenarios that would give him complete control over basketball operations in addition to the head coaching position. A hire of Calipari would seem to spell the end of vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac and head coach George Karl in Sacramento as one league insider said Ranadive is "trying to find a magic button to push that'll fix everything."

Jimmy Butler is likely to return to the Bulls after postponing meetings with teams interested in signing him, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.

Butler had meetings scheduled with the Celtics, 76ers, Lakers, and Mavericks, but has apparently postponed those meetings after reportedly receiving a max offer from the Bulls. We'll have to wait and see how this plays out, but Broussard is reporting that Butler is now just deciding how many years he wants to re-sign with Chicago for.

The Cavaliers reportedly have strong interest in signing unrestricted free agent Mike Dunleavy.

While Dunleavy is expected to re-sign with Chicago, LeBron James is reportedly a fan of Dunleavy and the Cavs are expected to make a push for the swing man. The 34-year-old isn't much of a fantasy asset after averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.7 three-pointers in 63 games during the 2014-15 regular season, but he could be worth a late-round flier in standard leagues if he lands a role as a starter with the Cavs.

Marc Gasol will reportedly only meet with the Grizzlies when free agency begins on July 1.

Gasol is set to host a contingent of Grizzlies officials when free agency begins and has declined to schedule any meetings with rival teams who are interested in him. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but it sounds like Grizzlies fans can exhale as a verbal agreement will presumably follow Wednesday's meeting in Spain.

Dwyane Wade is unlikely to leave the Miami Heat, according to multiple sources.

Wade is set to become a free agent after he declined to pick up his player option for the 2015-16 season, but various sources have indicated that Wade is likely to re-sign with the Heat unless he receives the perfect offer from another team. We'll keep an eye on Wade's destination as the free agency process unfolds, but it sounds like Heat fans shouldn't start burning their D-Wade jerseys just yet.

Brook Lopez is expected to return to the Brooklyn Nets.

According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Sports, there is mutual interest from the Nets and from Lopez in having the big man return to Brooklyn. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year deal in the $60 million range and with the Nets deciding to trade Mason Plumlee last week, it's looking more and more likely that Lopez will get his terms.

LaMarcus Aldridge will visit with the Lakers when the free agency period starts on July 1.

The Lakers will get the first pitch to Aldridge and L.A. Clippers beat writer Ben Bolch thinks they're the favorite, but insiders have yet to follow suit with that prediction putting him most likely with the Spurs or his old Blazers squad. After he meets with the Lakers he'll see the Rockets, Spurs, Suns, Mavs, Raptors and Knicks (in that order). Expect there to be a ton of rumors tugging in every direction from here on out.

Kyle Korver will have surgery on his right elbow to remove loose bodies.

He's already recovering from right ankle surgery and chances are this surgery is less severe. Korver is on track to be ready for camp and hopefully this surgery doesn't affect his sweet stroke from 3-point range.

The Hornets will not tender a qualifying offer to Bismack Biyombo and he is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Hornets are really changing their team this summer. Noah Vonleh is with the Blazers, they added Nicolas Batum, and they think the world of Frank Kaminsky. Bismack actually came around on offense a bit last season, but that's not saying much because he was awful on that end before the 2014-15 season. Expect him to wind up on another team as a backup.

Coach Jeff Hornacek denied reports that the Suns are looking to deal Eric Bledsoe.

"Eric is a big part of our future and there was no entertainment of that," Hornacek said. With the Suns reportedly set to offer Brandon Knight a five-year, $70 million deal, it's not going to be easy to have two of those deals essentially for just one position -- they would obviously play next to each other a lot. Expect plenty more Bledsoe rumors in the next couple weeks.

LaMarcus Aldridge is planning to have a meeting with the Raptors.

The Raptors do have some money under the cap to go after Aldridge, but the Spurs are still considered as the favorites. The Raptors had some issues at power forward last year and Jonas Valanciunas still hasn't come around on offense. LaMarcus figures to be one of the first unrestricted free agents to sign.
