Channing Frye quietly thrived in his long-awaited return to the court on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with three 3-pointers and one rebound in 16 bench minutes.

He drained 5-of-6 shots overall, with one assist and one steal. Frye's conditioning is the only impediment to his being a regular part of the rotation at PF and C, and just two years ago the 30-year-old knocked down 12.7 points with 6.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks for the Suns. He also played 33 minutes that year, which he's unlikely to approach in 2013-14, so fantasy owners should avoid him until the final rounds.

With Thursday's salary-shedding move sending away the contracts of Marcus Morris, Reggie Bullock and Danny Granger, the Suns appear to be making a strong push to sign unrestricted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge.

While the Suns have no guarantees that Aldridge will sign in Phoenix, his intrigue with the organization has motivated them to ramp up their efforts. LaMarcus also has scheduled another meeting with the Lakers for Thursday, so it doesn't sound like he'll be making an official decision today. While the Suns did shed some create some cap space with Thursday's trade, they'll still need to unload a few more assets (Markieff Morris and P.J. Tucker) to realistically be able to sign Aldridge.

Marcus Morris, Danny Granger and Reggie Bullock have been traded to the Pistons for future draft picks.

The Suns will receive a 2020 second-round draft pick, so this is obviously a salary-shedding move for Phoenix, as they set their sights on LaMarcus Aldridge. The Pistons reportedly made this move to insert Morris into the starting lineup at the small forward position, so he should see a bump in fantasy value in Detroit. However, Morris isn't a great rebounder, and doesn't bring a lot to the defensive categories, so he likely won't be much more than a 3-point specialist. Additionally, Morris' arrival really hurts the value of Stanley Johnson.

There is reportedly "mutual interest" between the Knicks and unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Trail Blazers remain an option for Lopez, but the Knicks could potentially pry him away with a big money offer after missing out on the big name free agents. If Lopez does not return to Portland, Mason Plumlee would likely assume the starting center position, and he would make for an excellent late-round selection in fantasy leagues if that's the case.

Shane Larkin has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3 million deal with the Nets.

This is a rather strange move for Brooklyn as they already have Jarrett Jack, Deron Williams, and Steve Blake on the roster. Larkin is sure to pick up a lot of DNP-CDs if the current roster remains intact, and he won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues.

Ed Davis is reportedly finalizing a deal with the Trail Blazers.

The deal is reportedly for $20 million over three years, and with LaMarcus Aldridge likely headed out of town, Davis could potentially be their starting power forward. Davis has never really been able to get consistent minutes, but his per-36-minutes averages are alluring at 12.8 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. If he is the starter in Portland, he could make for a quality late-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.

The Kings and Rajon Rondo will reportedly have a meeting on Friday.

Rondo is an unrestricted free agent and looking for a one-year deal to improve his stock after a horrendous season with the Mavs. There's reportedly mutual interest here, and the Kings seem to be the frontrunners for acquiring his services. If Rondo does land in Sacramento, he would really hurt the value of Darren Collison. As for fantasy, Rondo shouldn't be very high on anyone's draft boards regardless of where he winds up after averaging just 9.3 points and 6.5 assists on 43.6 percent shooting in Dallas.

The Knicks are reportedly ramping up their pursuit of restricted free agent Patrick Beverley.

According to sources of Alex Kennedy, the two sides are "talking a lot," and the Knicks could make a big offer to Beverley after missing out on Greg Monroe and likely LaMarcus Aldridge. Beverley would likely be the starter in New York, which would push Jose Calderon to the bench, and limit rookie Jerian Grant's opportunities. However, it needs to be noted that the Rockets can match any offer Beverley receives, so they have a major advantage in being able to retain him.

The Knicks and Lakers may attempt to trade for David Lee if they miss out on all the big name free agents.

Lee would see a major boost in value if he is shipped out of Golden State, and on either of the aforementioned teams he would have a good chance to average close to 18 points and 10 rebounds per game. Neither the Lakers nor the Knicks are likely to land a marquee player during free agency, so shifting their focus to Lee (who is still a solid offensive player) could make sense.

Tim Duncan said he will definitely return for the 2015-16 season.

"I'll be on the court next year," Duncan said on Thursday. While this was widely assumed to be the case, it's nice to hear Duncan officially commit to a return for next season. He's an unrestricted free agent, but has been part of the Spurs' courting of LaMarcus Aldridge so it's all but official that he'll be back with the Spurs for at least the 2015-15 season. The only question left is how much of a hometown discount Duncan will give the Spurs when he re-signs and that decision presumably hinges on if Aldridge chooses the Spurs.

The Clippers are reportedly reached out to Amare Stoudemire as they wait and see what DeAndre Jordan decides to do.

It's unclear is the Clippers are interested in Stoudemire as a Jordan replacement or complement, but Stoudemire is reportedly only interested in the former scenario as he doesn't want to back up Jordan and Blake Griffin, according to Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times. That may be wishful thinking from STAT as the 32-year-old averaged just 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 15 games as a starter last season.
Jul 2 - 1:43 PM

Tristan Thompson and the Cavaliers have yet to come to an agreement on contract figures after reportedly coming close on Wednesday.

Reports on Wednesday had Thompson close enough to inking a deal worth $80 million that Draymond Green and his representatives based Green's deal on those numbers, but it sounds like things have stalled. While the Cavs are still the favorite to land one of LeBron James' favorite teammates, we'll have to wait to see if the two sides can come to agreement before we officially consider the restricted free agent a Cavalier for the foreseeable future.
