P.J. Tucker suffered a right hand sprain at the end of Sunday's game at Cleveland, but plans on playing through it.

The Suns are at Philly on Monday and the swelling in his shooting hand will have to be monitored, giving us some pause when trying to determine if he'll play. Owners in weekly leagues might want to take a look at Tucker, who had 13 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on Sunday. The Suns play four games, and if Tucker can go through the injury, he could be a sneaky play. There is some risk in using him due to the injury, while he's also prone to single-digit scoring nights in between his good games, so weigh options carefully when deciding on whether or not to put Tucker in your lineup on Monday. If he misses any time, Marcus Morris should be the main beneficiary, along with an already streaking Gerald Green.

The Cavs have reportedly informed Andrew Wiggins that he will not be included in a deal for Kevin Love.

The Timberwolves obviously want Wiggins to be included in the deal, but the Cavs are going to try and get the deal done without including the 2014 No. 1 overall pick. They'll need to find a third team to offer additional assets to Minnesota, but if the Cavs want to win now, Love would immediately catapult them into the championship conversation.

The Bulls have reportedly reached out to Dwyane Wade to gauge his interest in joining his hometown team.

Wade is from Chicago, and with LeBron James headed back to Cleveland, and Chris Bosh likely bound for Houston, it's possible Wade bolts the rebuilding roster in Miami that consists of Norris Cole, Josh McRoberts, and Danny Granger. However, Wade has spent his entire career in a Miami Heat uniform, so it's possible he feels some loyalty to the organization that he's won three championships with.

The Warriors reportedly remain firm in their stance that they will not include Klay Thompson in a deal for Kevin Love.

Even with the Cavaliers aggressively pursuing Love, the Warriors are not interested in sweetening their deal to include Klay Thompson. Steve Kerr and Jerry West are both strong advocates of Thompson, so it appears, for right now, Klay will be staying put in Oakland.

Chris Bosh will reportedly soon speak with coach Kevin McHale, and it appears he's leaning towards signing with Houston.

Money is not going to be an issue here as Bosh has a max offer from both the Rockets and Heat, so his decision would presumably come down to what situation would put him in the best possible scenario for winning. With LeBron James returning his talents to Cleveland, it wouldn't be shocking to see Bosh return to his home state of Texas.

With a Jeremy Lin-to-Lakers trade now "imminent," according to Marc Stein, the belief is that Chris Bosh has chosen to join the Rockets over the Heat.

Both teams have reportedly offered Bosh a max-contract, while the Rockets have said all along that they weren't going to move Lin until they had a commitment from Bosh. While this is certainly not official, it does seem to indicate that Bosh will leave Miami for Houston. The Rockets should also match Chandler Parsons' offer sheet and if it happens, they should be one of the best teams in the league. And with only Dwyane Wade and some role players left in Miami, it could be a very, very long season for the Heat.
Jul 11 - 2:55 PM

The Rockets are reportedly finalizing a deal that will send Jeremy Lin to the Lakers.

The move will give Houston the cap space to sign Chris Bosh, and Lin might just be the new starting point guard in Los Angeles. The Rockets will reportedly send their first-round pick next season, plus a future second-round pick to the Lakers, and the Lakers will send cash and the rights to an overseas player. Lin is set to earn $15 million in the final season of his three-year deal, but only $8.37 million will go against the salary cap. The Rockets had always said they would not deal Lin unless it was certain they could net Chris Bosh, so it seems that Bosh will be suiting up for Houston next season.
Jul 11 - 2:45 PM

ESPN is reporting that the Cavaliers have opened up trade talks with the Timberwolves with a deal involving Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett, and two first-round picks.

Kevin Love would sign an extension to play alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, so Cleveland will probably do everything in their power to bring Love on-board. They'll likely have to include Andrew Wiggins if they are serious about getting Love, as David Kahn is no longer running the show in Minnesota. If Cleveland goes big for Love, it could entice Golden State to finally include Klay Thompson in their proposal.
Jul 11 - 2:20 PM

The Mavericks appear to be resigned to the fact the Rockets are going to match their offer sheet to Chandler Parsons, meaning Dallas will now turn it's sights to guys like Trevor Ariza and Luol Deng.

Ariza is younger and has more gas left in the tank, while Deng is a more consistent and reliable option. Either way, it would be pretty shocking at this point if both Chris Bosh and Chandler Parsons aren't both in the Rockets starting lineup next season.
Jul 11 - 2:17 PM

The Lakers are reportedly no longer an option for Carmelo Anthony, and he is now deciding between Chicago and New York.

So it seems the decision will come down to winning-now, vs. playing for his home team. The Knicks can offer Melo the most money, and reports seems to have Anthony leaning in that direction, but nothing is official until Anthony makes a statement. Stay tuned.
Jul 11 - 2:12 PM

The Rockets are reportedly trying to trade Jeremy Lin to the Lakers, who have copious salary cap space for Lin's expiring $14.9 million contract.

The Lakers and Bucks now seem like the frontrunners to acquire Lin, whom the Rockets need to unload in order to give Chris Bosh a max contract offer. The 76ers also aren't out of the running for Lin, but his fantasy value would probably be best served in L.A.
Jul 11 - 2:03 PM

Kevin Love is reportedly "intrigued" by the idea of playing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on the Cavaliers, and would commit to a long-term contract in Cleveland.

In late June the Cavs' pursuit of Love was reportedly dead in the water because he refused to re-sign with them, but as usual LeBron is a game-changer. The Cavs are rumored to have made an offer centered around No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins, and the Wolves may be hard-pressed to get a better offer, so this could quickly progress. For now, however, it remains only a fascinating possibility.
