Kevin Garnett says he, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry are coming to Brooklyn as a "support system" to Deron Williams.

The Nets -- and specifically first-time coach Jason Kidd -- will need to find a way to split one ball between Garnett, Pierce, Brook Lopez, Joe Johnson and Williams this season. Garnett and Pierce both talked Thursday about entering the season as role players, instead of the focal points they were in Boston. It's a good start to the relationship, but translating talk into action in the final minutes of a game is a completely different matter.

DeMarre Carroll has agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with the Raptors.

Terrence Ross was a huge disappointment for the Raptors last season, so Carroll will immediately step in as the starting small forward. It's a great signing for Toronto, as Carroll's defense, toughness and shooting stroke from beyond the arc will be a huge upgrade on the wing.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Spurs have traded Tiago Splitter to the Hawks.

Wow. The Spurs just locked up Danny Green with a four-year, $45 million deal, but clearing Splitter's contract off the books will give them the cap space that they need to make a run at LaMarcus Aldridge (who they are meeting with shortly). The Hawks aren't going to be able to afford having Splitter, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll on the roster, so something has to give. Stay tuned.

Brook Lopez and the Nets have agreed upon a three-year contract worth $60 million.

This has been a foregone conclusion since a few hours after free agency began, as it appears BroLo didn't even contemplate leaving Brooklyn. The third year was originally reported as a player option, but that's not the case. The 27-year-old has All-Star talent and he's coming off a nice season in which he played 72 games, though his injury history still makes him a risky pick on draft day.

Danny Green has agreed to a four-year, $45 million deal with the Spurs.

Green commanded a ton of interest from teams such as the Kings, Pistons, Mavericks and Knicks, and he probably could have gotten a lot more money if he wanted to. The chance to play for a championship with Gregg Popovich and the Spurs was probably too tempting, so it makes sense for Green to stay in San Antonio. Marco Belinelli could be on his way out of San Antonio, so Green should be locked into a significant role next season.

The Grizzlies are expected to re-sign Marc Gasol as early as Wednesday.

Gasol is expected to only meet with Memphis, so the two sides should have no problems reaching an agreement. The Lakers and Knicks were rumored to be in the running for Gasol, but it doesn't look like there will be any drama in Memphis. Gasol is currently discussing a deal with Grizzlies owner Robert Pera, so we could have another update shortly.

Jimmy Butler is reportedly "leaning strongly" towards accepting the Bulls' five-year, $90 million max offer as opposed to a shorter deal.

This is obviously great news for Bulls fans, but they will able to breathe much easier when an agreement is reached. The Lakers are rumored to be a serious contender for Butler, but a long-term deal with the Bulls would put that interest to bed. We should have another update shortly.
Jul 1 - 10:18 AM

The Chicago Bulls and Mike Dunleavy have reached an agreement on a three-year, $14.4 million deal.

Considering the cap is about to explode in 2016, this is a solid value for the Bulls. Dunleavy should be the starting small forward on opening night but he won't be a target in standard fantasy leagues after averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 3-pointers last season. The Doug McDermott show will have to wait.

Goran Dragic will sign a five-year, $90 million deal with the Miami Heat.

Dragic has a player option after the fourth year, but the Heat have to be thrilled with this deal. Dragic could have asked for more money (he could have received up to $4 million more per year), but this gives the Heat some additional flexibility to re-sign Dwyane Wade. Luol Deng has already opted into his deal, so now it's up to Wade to cap off a successful offseason for the Heat.

Paul Millsap has narrowed his list down to two teams, the Magic and the Hawks.

Millsap met with the Magic right when free agency began on Wednesday, so the meeting obviously went very well. ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that the Magic offered Millsap a four-year, $80 million max deal, but the Hawks have also put that same offer on the table. If the Magic are able to sign Millsap, this could be bad news for the fantasy value of Aaron Gordon.
Jul 1 - 9:42 AM

Damian Lillard is nearing an agreement with the Blazers to sign a five-year, $120 million max contract extension.

Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard received maximum contract offers on Wednesday, so it was just a matter of time before the Blazers followed suit with Lillard. With LaMarcus Aldridge likely to leave town, there is no question that this will be Lillard's team moving forward. Lillard's efficiency could drop if Aldridge leaves, but he could put up some scary numbers this season with more responsibility on the offensive end.
Jul 1 - 9:04 AM

The Rockets have already met with LaMarcus Aldridge.

He is scheduled to meet with seven teams, but he could get through all seven in 24 hours at this rate. Aldridge is one of the biggest dominoes to fall in free agency, so it should happen in the next couple days. He'll be getting a max deal from the Spurs, Mavs, Rockets, Lakers, Suns, Raptors or Knicks.
