J.R. Smith didn't get off the Knicks bench on Tuesday and Mike Woodson didn't explain why after the game.

"I'm not even commenting on J.R.," Woodson said. "I just didn't play him tonight." Smith, as he has been on every team he's played for in the NBA, is officially in the doghouse, but said later he doesn't know why he was benched, nor that he plans on speaking to Woodson about the problem. He played on Saturday and Monday, but Woody didn't feel like playing him in tonight's loss. Smith was also said to be "packing luggage" after the game, so there could be more news coming on exactly what he did to get benched tonight, and what his future may hold. If this is the end of Smith's run in NYC, Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway will both see a boost in fantasy value.

The Cavaliers are not actively shopping Kevin Love heading into Thursday's NBA Draft, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com said earlier this week that the Cavs haven't been given any hints on LeBron James staying or leaving, so obviously that is a mega factor in Love's future. Considering the Cavs traded their 2019 pick to the Hawks with a top-10 protection in the next two years, it sure does make sense to tank it up. If Love does stay in Cleveland for a while, he could be a fantasy force again.

The Knicks are exploring the option of trading up to No. 4, according to ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

ESPN's Ian Begley adds that the Knicks had an in-person meeting on Wednesday with Mo Bamba, who would likely be the top target. Bamba is from Harlem and he'd be an excellent fit next to Kristaps Porzingis for one of the longest 4-5 combos in the history of the NBA. The Knicks are comfortable with taking a long-term approach, so maybe they're willing to take on some bad salary.

Kawhi Leonard told Gregg Popovich during their Tuesday meeting that he no longer wants to play for the Spurs, according to Stephen A. Smith.

Leonard has made it clear that he'd like to be traded to one of the Los Angeles-based teams, and that his preference would be to go to the Lakers. It's not a great look for Leonard's camp that he first went to the media, and not management, with his trade request, but perhaps that's an indication of how badly fractured their relationship has become.

The Hornets are finalizing a deal to send Dwight Howard to the Nets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash considerations.

The fact that the best the Hornets get in a trade involving D12 was Mozgov and a few second-rounders tells you pretty much all you need to know about where the former Defensive Player of the Year's value is at as he enters his 15th year in the league. Howard will likely open the year as Brooklyn's starting five-man, which is absolutely terrible news for Jarrett Allen's outlook, while his departure from Charlotte will open up minutes for Willy Hernangomez.

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Kawhi Leonard met with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich in San Diego on Tuesday.

It was widely reported on June 15 that Leonard wants out of San Antonio, so this may be a last-ditch effort by Popovich to convince the two-way superstar to reconsider. ESPN adds that Leonard has been reluctant to meet with Popovich up until now, and that he "remains irate with public comments out of teammate Tony Parker and Popovich that he felt were not supportive of him" during his injury-plagued 2017-18 campaign.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, "Luka Doncic has moved to forefront of Atlanta's internal conversation on the third overall pick."

NBA decision makers seem to be split when it comes to Doncic, as some have him as the top prospect and others may not even have him in their top 3-5. In terms of fantasy, the Hawks would be a great landing spot for Doncic because they could slowly build their offense around him for years to come. If Doncic is off the board, Wojnarowski adds that the Hawks will consider Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Bagley (if the Kings pass on Bagley at No. 2).

LeBron James reportedly does not want to play in Houston next season.

The Rockets still haven't had an opportunity to make their pitch to James, but according to Steven A. Smith, Chris Paul has begun telling people that he doesn't anticipate James landing in Houston and that he'd prefer to play in Los Angeles. The Lakers could realistically land Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and King James this summer, which would surround James with the sort of star power necessary to combat Golden State. There's still a lot that can happen here, but right now, the Lakers look like the early favorites in the James sweepstakes.

Rudy Gay has declined to pick up his player option for the 2018-19 season with San Antonio.

Gay will be leaving $8.8 million on the table in hopes of inking a long-term deal at a similar salary, although there won't be many teams with ample cap space this summer, so Gay's wallet could be taking a hit here. He wasn't all that impressive with the Spurs this past season with averages of just 11.5 points, 5.1 boards and 1.3 assists per contest, so regardless of the name across his jersey, he won't be worth targeting in most fantasy hoops leagues.
Jun 18 - 1:43 PM

Jamal Crawford has declined to pick up his player option worth $4.5 million with the Timberwolves for the 2018-19 season.

Crawford will hit the open market this summer as an unrestricted free agent, but it could be tough for him to command that sort of salary after putting in averages of just 10.3 points, 1.3 triples and 2.3 assists per game on 41.5% shooting during his 2017-18 campaign. However, it's plausible that the 38-year-old veteran might be opting out of this deal in order to sign for the veteran's minimum on a championship caliber squad.

Lonzo Ball has been "the one constant" on a potential piece to go to Cleveland in a LeBron James sign-and-trade deal, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

That makes sense for the Lakers because the Spurs are reportedly not likely to deal for him. Ball is still recovering from his PRP treatment in his knee, but he should be ready to roll for training camp. Expect plenty of LaVar Ball talk in the coming weeks.

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) has progressed to training in a pool and running on a treadmill.

He's moving along quite nicely from his Achilles tear back on Jan. 26. His injury is basically uncharted territory for a man his size in this age of modern medicine, so it could affect his chances on a long-term deal. Regardless, things are looking up for Cousins to be close to full strength before the calendar turns to 2019.
