Wilson Chandler (hamstring) practiced on Thursday and is hopeful to play in Saturday's game against the Clippers.

He was hoping to get out on the practice court today, so it's a great sign he was able to reach his goal. Assuming he doesn't aggravate his injury, Chandler looks to be ready to go for the season opener and should be a big part of the offense in Denver while Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out.

The Bucks and Khris Middleton are nearing a five-year, $70 million deal.

What a difference two months makes, right? Middleton was behind Jared Dudley on the depth chart at the time of Jabari Parker's knee injury, but he turned in one of the best finishes of any player in the 2015 part of the season. In that span, Middleton averaged 16.7 points, 4.9 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.5 treys, which gave him third-round value in fantasy leagues. He'll be an early mid-round fantasy target next year with Jabari back.

Free agent Monta Ellis and his family will reportedly travel to Indiana to meet with Pacers officials on Wednesday.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Pacers president Larry Bird is determined to sign Ellis, and the team is "pushing hard" to finish a deal. The Pacers ranked 19th in pace last season (95.5 possessions per game) and they're intent on playing faster in 2015-16, which helps account for their pursuit of Monta. If he does agree to terms with the Pacers, they may be less inclined to re-sign unrestricted free agents Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan.

The Lakers had a two-hour meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge on Wednesday morning.

He still has six more meetings and the Lakers are really going to have to impress Aldridge in order to bring him on. Plus, Kobe Bryant's massive contract will severely limit the team from signing two max players. Expect LMA to sign somewhat soon.

The Nets and Brook Lopez are finalizing a deal worth a reported $60 million over three years.

Brooklyn prioritized BroLo in free agency, particularly after trading away Mason Plumlee on draft night, and they quickly locked him up just hours into free agency. Lopez played 72 games last season, quelling concerns about his surgically-reconstructed foot, and he's a solid top-40 fantasy player when healthy. The deal reportedly gives Lopez a third-year player option, and it also includes "some protections for the Nets should a recurrence of Lopez's past foot issues sideline him again."

The Brooklyn Nets will re-sign Thaddeus Young to a four-year, $50 million deal on Wednesday.

No surprises here. The Nets made it clear that re-signing Young was a priority this summer, and they didn't waste any time getting a deal done. The Nets recently traded Mason Plumlee to the Blazers, so Young should be locked in as the starting power forward next season. Young will be a solid mid-round pick in fantasy drafts this season.

Jimmy Butler is "considering accepting" the Bulls' max five-year contract offer, according to RealGM's Shams Charania.

The contract would reportedly include a player option for the 2019-20 season and Butler "plans to sleep on [the] decision." This undermines previous reports stating that Butler preferred a one-year deal with the Lakers, and the maximum salary offered may be enough to keep Jimmy in Chicago long-term. He could make his decision as soon as Wednesday.

The Brooklyn Nets are nearing an agreement to re-sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young.

There doesn't appear to be any drama in Brooklyn right now, and it sounds like the Nets could have a deal in place for both players very soon. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year, $60 million deal, while Young is targeting a four-year, $50 million deal. Stay tuned.

Al-Farouq Aminu has agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with the Trail Blazers.

Aminu was reportedly a target of the Celtics, Raptors, Pelicans, Knicks and Mavericks, but Portland ponied up a lot of cash to bring him to Rip City. The Blazers recently traded Nicolas Batum and could lose Wesley Matthews and Arron Afflalo in free agency, so Aminu will almost certainly be starting at small forward on opening night. Aminu averaged 11.2 points, 7.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 2.0 steals and 1.4 3-pointers in 30.0 minutes per game during the playoffs last season, so we know what he can do with an expanded role. Aminu is shaping up to be a steal in the later rounds of fantasy drafts next season.

Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs have agreed on the framework of a five-year contract worth more than $90 million.

Even this maximum-salary contract is a relative bargain for the Spurs, who locked up the reigning Defensive Player of the Year for roughly $18 million per season as he heads into his prime. Details haven't been disclosed but the deal is expected to include an early termination option for the 2019-20 season. With Leonard secured for the foreseeable future the Spurs can turn their full attention to coveted FA LaMarcus Aldridge -- yes, Kawhi will be at the meeting to lure him to San Antonio.
Jul 1 - 12:07 AM

Anthony Davis and the Pelicans have verbally agreed upon a five-year, $145 million deal.

Well, that was quick. Davis will have a player option for the fifth year but Pelicans fans can breathe easy with this news. Davis is quickly establishing himself as one of the best players in the NBA and it will be exciting to see what he can do with Alvin Gentry at the helm. For obvious reasons, Davis is still the frontrunner to be the No. 1 pick in fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 12:02 AM

Unrestricted free agent Kevin Love is expected to meet with the Lakers this week.

The Suns have also expressed interest and the Celtics are hoping to meet with Love, but most teams are hedging their bets since he's widely expected to return to Cleveland. FOX Sports' Sam Amico reported this week that Love has told the Cavs he'll re-sign, and the team reportedly plans to offer him a five-year deal worth more than $110 million. We're not reading much into his meeting with the Lakers, in other words, but anything is possible.
