Rick Carlisle said Friday that an MRI taken on Shawn Marion's injured calf showed a strain and not a contusion.

This explains the best-case scenario of a return "sometime next week," and owners should consider Marion out indefinitely until the reports begin to tighten up. Jae Crowder will be the likely starter while Marion is out, but Vince Carter is the fantasy beneficiary.

Nick Young has re-signed with the Lakers on a four-year deal worth $21.5 million.

Young will remain in LA with his hometown Lakers. He was decent last season, compiling averages of 17.9 points, and 2.1 three-pointers a game, but those results can't be expected when playing alongside a healthy Kobe Bryant. Young really doesn't offer much outside of scoring, and when Kobe is there to take away his opportunities, he's not going to be offering much at all.

Jordan Hill has agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the Lakers.

It's a fairly expensive deal at $9 million per, but at least it's just for two seasons. Hill had a tough time staying court last season and his conditioning capped his minutes per game a bit. Still, the Lakers needed size and depth, so it's a good fit. He won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

Now that Chris Bosh is returning to Miami on a max deal, the Heat are reportedly trying to finalize shorter deals with Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem.

Wade will likely stay loyal to Pat Riley and remain in Miami alongside Chris Bosh. Haslem is a fan favorite in Miami, and he has repeatedly taken less money to remain with the franchise throughout his career so it would be shocking to seem him land elsewhere. Wade will need to prove that he is still capable of carrying a team after a disappointing 2013-14 season. His knees will be a concern and it would probably be best to let another owner deal with Wade come draft day.

Chris Bosh is reportedly finalizing an agreement to return to Miami on a five-year deal worth $118 million.

Wow, looks like Bosh is going to remain loyal to Pat Riley. If Bosh had elected to sign with Houston he would have been leaving $32 million on the table, so perhaps there was a bit of financial incentive at play here. Miami has a lot of cap space, and they can bring in another high-profile free agent to play alongside Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Bosh will now take on a much larger burden with shouldering the offensive workload in Miami, and he could be in for a fantastic fantasy season.

The Cavs have reportedly informed Andrew Wiggins that he will not be included in a deal for Kevin Love.

The Timberwolves obviously want Wiggins to be included in the deal, but the Cavs are going to try and get the deal done without including the 2014 No. 1 overall pick. They'll need to find a third team to offer additional assets to Minnesota, but if the Cavs want to win now, Love would immediately catapult them into the championship conversation.

The Bulls have reportedly reached out to Dwyane Wade to gauge his interest in joining his hometown team.

Wade is from Chicago, and with LeBron James headed back to Cleveland, and Chris Bosh likely bound for Houston, it's possible Wade bolts the rebuilding roster in Miami that consists of Norris Cole, Josh McRoberts, and Danny Granger. However, Wade has spent his entire career in a Miami Heat uniform, so it's possible he feels some loyalty to the organization that he's won three championships with.

The Warriors reportedly remain firm in their stance that they will not include Klay Thompson in a deal for Kevin Love.

Even with the Cavaliers aggressively pursuing Love, the Warriors are not interested in sweetening their deal to include Klay Thompson. Steve Kerr and Jerry West are both strong advocates of Thompson, so it appears, for right now, Klay will be staying put in Oakland.

Chris Bosh will reportedly soon speak with coach Kevin McHale, and it appears he's leaning towards signing with Houston.

Money is not going to be an issue here as Bosh has a max offer from both the Rockets and Heat, so his decision would presumably come down to what situation would put him in the best possible scenario for winning. With LeBron James returning his talents to Cleveland, it wouldn't be shocking to see Bosh return to his home state of Texas.

With a Jeremy Lin-to-Lakers trade now "imminent," according to Marc Stein, the belief is that Chris Bosh has chosen to join the Rockets over the Heat.

Both teams have reportedly offered Bosh a max-contract, while the Rockets have said all along that they weren't going to move Lin until they had a commitment from Bosh. While this is certainly not official, it does seem to indicate that Bosh will leave Miami for Houston. The Rockets should also match Chandler Parsons' offer sheet and if it happens, they should be one of the best teams in the league. And with only Dwyane Wade and some role players left in Miami, it could be a very, very long season for the Heat.

The Rockets are reportedly finalizing a deal that will send Jeremy Lin to the Lakers.

The move will give Houston the cap space to sign Chris Bosh, and Lin might just be the new starting point guard in Los Angeles. The Rockets will reportedly send their first-round pick next season, plus a future second-round pick to the Lakers, and the Lakers will send cash and the rights to an overseas player. Lin is set to earn $15 million in the final season of his three-year deal, but only $8.37 million will go against the salary cap. The Rockets had always said they would not deal Lin unless it was certain they could net Chris Bosh, so it seems that Bosh will be suiting up for Houston next season.
Jul 11 - 2:45 PM

ESPN is reporting that the Cavaliers have opened up trade talks with the Timberwolves with a deal involving Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett, and two first-round picks.

Kevin Love would sign an extension to play alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, so Cleveland will probably do everything in their power to bring Love on-board. They'll likely have to include Andrew Wiggins if they are serious about getting Love, as David Kahn is no longer running the show in Minnesota. If Cleveland goes big for Love, it could entice Golden State to finally include Klay Thompson in their proposal.
