Tom Thibodeau says the Bulls are hoping Joakim Noah will not need surgery to repair his plantar fasciitis.

The injury has become a chronic issue for Noah, who barely practiced after the All-Star break. We imagine both parties would like to find a way to solve the problem for good, but the recovery from such a surgery can be long and troublesome. While Noah had some very strong performances at the end of the Nets series and to open the Heat series, it was clear by Games 4 and 5 against Miami that he wasn't anywhere close to 100 percent. The Bulls will likely re-evaluate Noah's foot after a few weeks before making the next decision.

The Lakers, Bulls and Rockets are working on a sign-and-trade deal involving Pau Gasol.

The Bulls are basically on the goal line to get Gasol, so it's more of just a matter of how they'll bring him on board. Gasol seems to be willing to take a major pay cut from his $14 million last year and would be a nice fit next to Joakim Noah. Stay tuned.

The Hornets are expected to aggressively pursue free agent SG Lance Stephenson, but he's also being sought after by the Mavericks and Pacers.

More teams could join the mix as the free agent market continues to narrow its focus, and Stephenson is already one of the best available players remaining. The Hornets have about $20 million in salary cap space after missing out on Gordon Hayward, and they're in position to offer much more than Indy's original five-year, $44 million proposal. The Mavericks, meanwhile, can't actively pursue him until the Rockets decide whether to match Dallas' offer sheet for Chandler Parsons.

Anthony Morrow has agreed to a three-year, $10 million deal with the Thunder, according to beat writer Darnell Mayberry.

Morrow gives them OKC a bona fide sniper who made 45.1 percent of his 3-pointers last season. Fully one-third of his offensive usage came on spot-up jumpers, so he should fare well alongside Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. It remains to be seen whether he'll overtake Jeremy Lamb for the starting SG job, and it's a position battle worth watching in the preseason.

Carmelo Anthony will soon accept a five-year contract from the Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Frank Isola reported that Melo would stay in New York earlier in the week, and once Pau Gasol signed with Chicago it was a near certainty. Melo and the Knicks may struggle during the 2014-15 season but they're poised to be major players in free agency next summer. From a fantasy perspective, Anthony is in a perfect situation as the lead gunner on a team in need of reliable scoring, and he should benefit from the Knicks' acquisition of Jose Calderon for Raymond Felton.

The Jazz have officially matched Charlotte's four-year, $63 million offer sheet for Gordon Hayward.

Utah may have been forced to overpay a bit to retain Hayward, but it's not an unreasonable deal for a 24-year-old who has increased his scoring in each of his four NBA seasons. Hayward's shooting percentage slipped to 41.3 percent last season but he picked it up elsewhere, averaging 16.2 points, 1.1 triples, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The arrival of Dante Exum should take some pressure off Hayward and Trey Burke in the backcourt, and Hayward is a likely bet to retain top-50 fantasy value in Utah.

Free agent Mike Miller is close to a deal with the Cavs according to Fox Sports Ohio.

"Unless something unforeseeable happens, he will be joining us" said a team source. Miller will probably be on the same program he's been on for the past few years, with playing time concerns during the regular season as he gears up for postseason ball.

The Bulls and free agent Pau Gasol are working to complete an agreement according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

This means that Carmelo Anthony is probably staying in New York, but keeping it on Gasol the signing makes the Bulls a legitimate threat in the East. He will fit in nicely with a frontcourt starring Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, and assuming everybody stays healthy he can coast through a reduced workload on his way to a productive year.

Nik Stauskas showed some promise vs. the Spurs on Friday with 14 points, three assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers.

The buzz around the Kings hasn't been great these days, but Stauskas had a nice start to his pro career. While he is mostly known for shooting, the rookie was effective at putting the ball on the floor and was solid on defense. With Isaiah Thomas out of the picture, there could be some minutes for him. Obviously, his coach loves him too.

Vince Carter has agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Grizzlies according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's fair to wonder when Carter's legs will give out, but in his limited role it's very possible that he continues to put up serviceable numbers as a seasoned backup. It looks like Mike Miller is on his way out of Memphis and perhaps to Cleveland to go play with LeBron.

Andrew Wiggins did not disappoint in his pro debut during Friday's 70-68 win over the Bucks, making 7-of-18 from the field for 18 points with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

It was showtime. Wiggins was aggressive on defense, exhibited a ton of elevation on his jumpers and around the rim, and he showed some superb basketball IQ. He may be the most talented player in this draft class, but he's going to be the third option on the Cavs. It's almost a disservice we won't see him in a featured role off the bat. He was icing both knees and his left hand after the game, but said he's "good."
Jul 11 - 10:12 PM

Anthony Bennett played 31 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven boards, two steals, two turnovers, one 3-pointer, two steals and eight fouls.

He looked focused before the game started and it was easy to tell he wanted to have a great game today. Bennett was even getting up and down the court in fast-break and wasn't lagging on either end. Plus, he was much better on the perimeter. Although, at times he did look like his conditioning wasn't quite up to par. He still has a lot of work to do.
