The Wolves have "definite interest" on unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee, according to report Darren Wolfson.

A lot of teams are after Lee, including the Knicks, Kings, 76ers, Hawks Hornets and more. Lee will be in demand as a combo wing with plus-defense, solid efficiency and at least some capability of handling the ball. He will be 31 years old when the season starts.

Evan Turner was told he will start next to Damian Lillard and C.J. Mccollum next year.

That means the chances of the Blazers retaining Moe Harkless have dropped -- they could still keep Allen Crabbe. The Blazers also have Al-Farouq Aminu, who really stepped up on a bargain of a contract. Turner can't space the floor quite like Allen Crabbe can, so it's an interesting fit to see where he fits in coach Terry Stotts' offense. His usage rate should be fairly small in the first unit with his primary responsibility coming on the defensive end.

Restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova and the Bucks have agreed to a four-year, $39 million deal.

The offer sheet hasn't officially been submitted just yet due to league rules. When it is next week, the Cavs will have three days to match this offer, but it seems very unlikely due to how it will hurt their cap number so much. Dellavedova will see a huge bump in playing time and he could take minutes from Michael Carter-Williams. Although, it'll be interesting to see if he can play without LeBron James next to him.

Restricted free agent Dion Waiters is scheduled to meet with the Kings this weekend, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

According to Pompey, the 76ers want to have a face-to-face meeting with Waiters. They might not get it because the Kings are reportedly "locked in" on Waiters, per Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. Waiters is expected to see an annual salary in the upper teens and he's almost certainly not coming back to OKC. He won't have to beg for the ball nearly as much with the Kings who continue to struggle at shooting guard.

The Pelicans have a verbal agreement on a four-year, $52 million deal with unrestricted free agent Solomon Hill.

He saw a big uptick in minutes during the postseason and he still has some room to grow at age 25. Hill is wildly inconsistent, he was out of the rotation earlier in the year, and he's just a career 40.9 percent shooter from the field. The Pelicans likely knew they couldn't get an expensive small forward, so they'll give Hill a chance. He could find himself getting minutes next season.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Bulls

The Blazers made an aggressive offer to unrestricted free agent Pau Gasol on Friday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

They just offered up a huge contract to Evan Turner and will look to add another piece up front. The Blazers might have to see some of their younger guys go to sign Gasol here.

The Bucks are nearing a four-year, $38 million agreement with restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

The Cavs backups are getting paid these days. The Cavs could still match here, but that is a heck of a lot of money for a player who lost his minutes in the postseason. Dellavedova would actually be a candidate to start because the Bucks have said they want someone out there to guard point guards.

There is a "growing sense" around the NBA the Kings are becoming more willing to trade Rudy Gay, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

This has been a story for months now. The Kings could look to rebuild due to their lack of assets. Plus, several teams missing on small forwards could give Gay a little added value. To be clear, nothing is imminent right now.

Evan Fournier received a five-year, $85 million contract extension to stay with the Magic.

The Magic went over the top to clear out cap space, so there was almost no chance they were going to miss out on Fournier. Former coach Scott Skiles trusted Fournier in a big way, helping the Frenchman average a career-high 15.4 points per game. Now that Victor Oladipo is gone, the 23-year-old wing should get plenty of shots headed his way. He'll get minutes in the mid 30s with coach Frank Vogel as a mid-round fantasy target in standard leagues.

Evan Turner has agreed to a four-year, $70 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Blazers were in hot pursuit of Chandler Parsons, but quickly turned their attention towards Turner once Parsons agreed to a deal with the Grizzlies. Turner will compete with Al-Farouq Aminu for the starting small forward job, but it's hard to imagine him not having a significant role due to the size of the contract. Additionally, this deal may make it tough for the Blazers to re-sign both Allen Crabbe and Moe Harkless.

Joakim Noah posted a picture on his Instagram of himself wearing a Knicks hat.

It's a lock that Noah will be joining the Knicks, but we're still waiting on official confirmation. For what it's worth, the last report from The Vertical indicated that he could receive a four-year, $70 million deal. This would be a great spot for Noah's fantasy value as he would immediately become the Knicks' starting center.
Jul 1 - 3:19 PM

Unrestricted free agent Chandler Parsons has agreed to a four-year, $94 million max deal with the Grizzlies.

The Blazers offered him the max on Friday morning, so the Grizzlies knew where they stood and made the deal. This deal should also help add Mike Conley with Memphis being in an "ultra-strong position," per ESPN. Parsons one of the most efficient players after the break last year and should have more shots going his way. After the break last year, only three of the 100 players with at least 30 minutes per game had a better true shooting percentage than Parsons (Stephen Curry, Hassan Whiteside and DeAndre Jordan). He does have some risk with his knee, but he'll be an early-round target in standard leagues as he heads into his age-28 season.
Jul 1 - 3:19 PM

Mirza Teletovic has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Bucks.

Teletovic played well for the Suns last season, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 1.1 assists and 2.2 3-pointers on 42.7 percent shooting from the field. The stretch four could see around 20 minutes per game off the bench in Milwaukee, and he will continue to be a 3-point specialist in fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 3:02 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Hawks made a strong connection with Dwight Howard in their meeting.

Wojnarowski adds that there is definitely some "traction" there, so it sounds like the Hawks are one of the favorites to sign D-12. It's also worth noting that the Blazers are making a strong push to sign both Howard and Chandler Parsons, while the Celtics are expected to get a meeting with Howard as well.
Jul 1 - 2:56 PM

The 76ers have agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with Jerryd Bayless.

All three years of the deal are guaranteed. The 76ers finally have their starting point guard for the 2016-17 season, and Bayless could have some nice low-end fantasy value in Philly after averaging 10.4 points, 3.1 assists, 2.7 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.9 3-pointers in Milwaukee last season. He's not their point guard of the future, but the veteran should be able to hold down the fort for at least one season.
