Dwyane Wade    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls are "expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months," according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said in early July that he didn't expect Wade to be bought out this summer, but that doesn't rule out an early-season maneuver. Chicago is rebuilding after trading Jimmy Butler to the Wolves, and Zach LaVine is the franchise's SG of the future, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Wade hit free agency after a buyout in the coming months.

Tyrone Wallace    G  Clippers

 

 

The Clippers have signed G Tyrone Wallace. The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but this is likely just a camp invite for the No. 60 overall pick from the 2016 NBA draft. The Clippers have plenty of depth at the point guard position, so Wallace will more than likely spend most of the 2017-18 season with Los Angeles' G-League affiliate.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

The Knicks reportedly have no interest in including Kristaps Porzingis in a package for Kyrie Irving. "[Knicks president] Steve Mills and [Knicks general manager] Scott Perry on the record were very clear that Kristaps was part of the future,’’ an anonymous source to Newsweek said in reference to comments made last month by both executives. "In all the discussions since then — there were other rumors before that Cleveland would want Kristaps — and it didn’t seem that [the Knicks] were interested at all in a conversation." The Knicks don't appear to be very willing to put together an enticing offer for Irving, so Uncle Drew winding up in New York seems like an unlikely scenario.

Myles Turner    F/C  Pacers

 

 

Myles Turner said he expects the Pacers to be in the playoffs next season. "A lot of people look at us as young team that’s going to rebuild, but we’re a young team that’s trying to compete," said Turner. "We’ve got a lot of guys who can come in and make an impact right away. I expect to make the playoffs this year." This is what he's supposed to say, but the reality is that it will be tough for Indiana to compete out East after losing Paul George this offseason. However, the departure of PG-13 should open up a ton of opportunity for Turner, so he should easily be able to flirt with top-20 value next season.

Damien Wilkins    G/F  Pacers

 

 

The Indiana Pacers announced they have signed Damien Wilkins. It was reported back in late July that Indy was going to ink Wilkins to a non-guaranteed, one-year deal and it became official on Tuesday. Wilkins, who is 37, hasn't played in an NBA game since April of 2013. Even if he does end up making the 15-man roster, it is unlikely he cracks the Pacers rotation. Thus, Wilkins can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
