Free agent Mike Miller is close to a deal with the Cavs according to Fox Sports Ohio.

"Unless something unforeseeable happens, he will be joining us" said a team source. Miller will probably be on the same program he's been on for the past few years, with playing time concerns during the regular season as he gears up for postseason ball.

With the Bulls nearing a deal with Pau Gasol, free agent Carmelo Anthony will likely return to the Knicks according to multiple reporters.

It all makes sense and we'll update this as soon as all of the various shoes have dropped. Anthony is in some prime real estate to put up big numbers on a barren Knicks roster.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Lakers

The Bulls and free agent Pau Gasol are working to complete an agreement according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

This means that Carmelo Anthony is probably staying in New York, but keeping it on Gasol the signing makes the Bulls a legitimate threat in the East. He will fit in nicely with a frontcourt starring Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, and assuming everybody stays healthy he can coast through a reduced workload on his way to a productive year.

No. 25 draft pick Clint Capela and the Rockets are in a dispute after the Rockets' failed attempt to land Chris Bosh.

It sounds like the Rockets pushed Capela to spend another season in France and it didn't go over very well. Negotiations are at a minor impasse according to NBA Insider Chris Haynes.

Kyle Anderson had a typical night vs. the Kings on Friday with six points, four boards, six assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

He lived up to his nickname Slo Mo today. Anderson acted as point forward on several possessions and played mistake-free ball. The Spurs didn't lose any depth this offseason, which means we won't see much of Anderson on the nights Coach Pop doesn't rest his players.

Nik Stauskas showed some promise vs. the Spurs on Friday with 14 points, three assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers.

The buzz around the Kings hasn't been great these days, but Stauskas had a nice start to his pro career. While he is mostly known for shooting, the rookie was effective at putting the ball on the floor and was solid on defense. With Isaiah Thomas out of the picture, there could be some minutes for him. Obviously, his coach loves him too.

Ben McLemore shot 2-of-8 from the field for 11 points with three boards, four fouls and two 3-pointers.

He had an inexcusable eight turnovers and was outplayed by rookie Nik Stauskas tonight. His shot selection didn't get any better either. McLemore said he'd like to improve and become a better all-around player, but he just didn't play within himself. He's in jeopardy of losing playing time despite Isaiah Thomas heading out of town.

Ray McCallum shot 4-of-11 from the field for 10 points vs. the Spurs on Friday to go with six boards, two assists and one turnover.

The Kings lost out on Isaiah Thomas today -- or whatever you want to call it. That means Ray McCallum is going to be in the rotation and back up Darren Collison. The former Clipper hasn't thrived in ball distribution, so Ray Mac could be a better fit. He'll be worth watching this offseason, especially after his strong finish last season.

Vince Carter has agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Grizzlies according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's fair to wonder when Carter's legs will give out, but in his limited role it's very possible that he continues to put up serviceable numbers as a seasoned backup. It looks like Mike Miller is on his way out of Memphis and perhaps to Cleveland to go play with LeBron.
Jul 11 - 11:46 PM

Noah Vonleh missed all 13 of his shots from the field and missed both free throw attempts vs. the Warriors on Friday.

Yikes. He also had six boards, one steal, three blocks, three turnovers and five fouls in 32 minutes. Vonleh was a fantastic jump shooter at Indiana last year, making 46 percent of his jumpers, but he rushed a bunch tonight. Now that Josh McRoberts is out o town, the rookie could be looking at some minutes. He'll look to get better vs. the Kings on Sunday.

The Cavs and Chris Andersen are in talks according to Fox Sports Ohio.

Andersen obviously has the history with LeBron and the Cavs don't exactly have a deep frontcourt. Considering the Birdman is a serviceable backup for any playoff contender, he might have a few suitors come out of the woodwork in the next 24 hours.
Jul 11 - 10:46 PM

Kent Bazemore will reportedly sign a two-year, $4 million deal to play for the Hawks.

Bazemore's contract is fully guaranteed and though there are some quality players along the wing with Kyle Korver, and DeMarre Carroll, Thabo Sefolosha and if we're feeling nice John Salmons -- this isn't necessarily a crucial blow to his fantasy value. If he can elbow his way in front of Sefolosha and Salmons, he could be positioned for 20-30 minutes per game.

Andrew Wiggins did not disappoint in his pro debut during Friday's 70-68 win over the Bucks, making 7-of-18 from the field for 18 points with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

It was showtime. Wiggins was aggressive on defense, exhibited a ton of elevation on his jumpers and around the rim, and he showed some superb basketball IQ. He may be the most talented player in this draft class, but he's going to be the third option on the Cavs. It's almost a disservice we won't see him in a featured role off the bat. He was icing both knees and his left hand after the game, but said he's "good."
Jul 11 - 10:12 PM

Anthony Bennett played 31 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven boards, two steals, two turnovers, one 3-pointer, two steals and eight fouls.

He looked focused before the game started and it was easy to tell he wanted to have a great game today. Bennett was even getting up and down the court in fast-break and wasn't lagging on either end. Plus, he was much better on the perimeter. Although, at times he did look like his conditioning wasn't quite up to par. He still has a lot of work to do.
Jul 11 - 10:09 PM

Jabari Parker's offensive arsenal was on display vs. the Cavs on Friday, making 5-of-11 from the field for 17 points with nine boards, one assist, one steal and four turnovers.

It was an impressive showing for the No. 2 pick. He finished at the rim like a veteran and was able to use both hands well. Parker was the ball handler and roll man in pick-and-roll situations, so he's showing he can play both forward spots. On the downside, he did look a little lost on defense. He's shaping up to be the first rookie to be drafted in fantasy leagues.
