Iman Shumpert stayed hot against the Rockets on Friday with 26 points, four boards, five assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He went off on Thursday against the Spurs with a 27-point game and had his fingerprints all over the win at San Antonio. Shumpert has been a letdown up until last night, but he's worth a look now that he's suddenly hot. He's not a must-own player or anything yet, so owners in 10-team leagues will likely have a very tough time cutting someone to pick him up.

Jimmy Butler is finalizing a max deal with the Bulls worth $95 million over five years.

The other teams after Butler have given up, so the Bulls have their man. There were some rumblings of Butler being worried about it being "Derrick Rose's team" and that will have to be something to watch. Butler led the NBA in minutes per game last season and was the eighth-best player in fantasy per game. He could be even better next year.

Alexis Ajinca will sign a four-year, $20.2 million deal to remain with the Pelicans.

Ajinca was a solid option off the bench for the Pelicans last season with averages of 6.5 points, 4.6 boards and 0.8 blocks in just 14.1 minutes per game, so this deal was a great value. It's possible that Omer Asik leaves in free agency, so Ajinca could be pressed into a larger role if that is the case.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat are progressing in talks on a multi-year deal.

Wade reportedly wants a max contract offer, and the Heat will likely be more willing to give him one since Goran Dragic re-signed at a discount. The Lakers are reportedly still hoping to get a meeting with Wade, but it looks like the Heat are still the clear favorites to sign him.

LaMarcus Aldridge could make a decision on his future very soon, and the Spurs are currently considered the frontrunners to land him.

The Lakers reportedly didn't make a strong impression on him, so it appears that they are likely out of the running. The Spurs just re-signed Danny Green to a cap-friendly four-year, $45 million deal, and they also cleared a lot of cap space by trading Tiago Splitter to the Hawks. Aldridge is currently meeting with the Spurs, and it wouldn't be surprising if an agreement is reached soon.

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.
