Dwyane Wade indicated in a recent interview that he plans to play in 75-plus games next season.

Wade may be shooting for 75-plus games, but his knees may have a different plan in store. Wade sat out 28 games last season, with 13 of those DNP's due to rest. He didn't look capable of carrying a team during the 2014 Finals as he shot just a combined 7-of-25 from the floor during the final two games of the series. Players that rely on their explosive athleticism in favor of a solid jumper typically have a quicker fall from grace than the latter, but it's too early to declare Wade as washed up. A bounce-back year isn't out of the question, especially with the larger offensive role he'll need to take on, but he will be a very risky pick come draft day and we wouldn't recommend taking him in the early rounds.

The Lakers have reportedly expressed interest in Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire is well past his days of being a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues. His body simply can't handle major minutes, so wherever he signs, he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.

The Wizards are reportedly nearing in on a deal that will net them Jared Dudley.

Dudley would likely serve in a mentorship role for guys like Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre, but he won't have any fantasy value with the Wizards.

Timofey Mozgov underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Wednesday, and he's expected to make a full recovery in 6-weeks.

Arthroscopic surgery really isn't that big of a deal, and he has plenty of time to recover to be 100 percent for training camp. Mozgov averaged 10.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game with the Cavs during the 2014-15 season, and he'll make for a quality late-round target in next year's drafts.

Damian Lillard has agreed to a five-year, max-extension with the Trail Blazers.

The deal is reportedly in the $125 million to $129 million range, and this was an easy decision for Portland. It seems all but certain that LaMarcus Aldridge will not be back with the Blazers, so Lillard is going to become an even larger part of the offense than he already was. He posted averages of 21.0 points, 6.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.4 three-pointers per game on 43.4 percent shooting during the 2014-15 season, and he'll make for a fine second-round selection in next year's drafts.

Dwyane Wade has reportedly accepted a one-year, $20 million deal to remain with the Heat.

Wade was reportedly looking for a multi-year deal, but it looks like he'll settle for $20 million instead. Wade put in respectable averages of 21.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game during the 2014-15 season, but he also only made it through 62 games. He's fun to own when healthy, but unfortunately he's just not healthy enough, and we'd recommend letting someone else deal with him on draft day.

Thomas Robinson is reportedly close to coming to terms on a two-year deal with the Nets.

With Brook Lopez a constant injury risk, the Nets need some depth in their frontcourt, and Robinson will provide them with that. However, he's unlikely to be a major part of Brooklyn's rotations, so he should not be targeted in standard fantasy leagues.

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.
Jul 2 - 2:58 PM

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.
