Derrick Rose    G  Knicks

 

 

The Knicks reportedly have "legitimate" interest in re-signing Derrick Rose as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Knicks reportedly aren't looking to pay a large salary to an incoming free agent, which could prove to be a sticking point for Rose, but at the same time, Rose's value is pretty depleted at the moment after yet another one of his seasons ended in knee surgery. If Rose does secure a deal with the Knicks this offseason, that'll put a damper on rookie Frank Ntilikina's fantasy potential.

Tyler Ulis    G  Suns

 

 

Tyler Ulis (right ankle surgery) has progressed to getting up set shots and doing light running. Ulis won't be available for summer league, but he's fully expected to be 100 percent by training camp. Ulis played well after the break last year when Eric Bledsoe got shutdown, but as long as Bledsoe is healthy and in Phoenix, Ulis won't be playing enough minutes to make a difference in most leagues.

Chris Paul    G  Clippers

 

 

Chris Paul and his agent reportedly met with the Clippers brass on Tuesday to discuss his future with the organization. CP3 will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and while the Clippers will be able to offer him the most money during free agency, a team like the Spurs or the Rockets could grant him a competitive offer and also the chance to go further than the first round of the postseason. At 32 years old, this summer will essentially be Paul's final opportunity flirt with a long-term, max contract as a free agent, but he may be willing to sign a shorter-term deal at slightly less than the max if he believes another team would give him a better chance at competing for a championship.

Chauncey Billups    G  

 

 

Chauncey Billups remains undecided as to whether or not he will take the GM job in Cleveland. Thus far, Billups has been the only candidate interviewed for the open GM position in Cleveland after owner Dan Gilbert fired David Griffin just ahead of the 2017 NBA draft, and while Billups has had a working relationship with Gilbert for over a decade, he's reportedly somewhat hesitant to work for the "passionate-but-demanding" owner. Billups is also aware that LeBron James could leave as a free agent in 2018 if things go south, so that will also likely factor into his decision making process.

Andre Iguodala    G/F  Warriors

 

 

The Timberwolves, 76ers, Spurs, Clippers, Magic, Nets and Jazz will all reportedly pursue Andre Iguodala as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Kevin Durant is reportedly going to take less than the max as a free agent this offseason in an attempt to help the Warriors keep the band together, but some of these opposing teams will be able to offer the 33-year-old, 2015 Finals MVP significantly more money this summer. Iguodala's best shot of being a part of another championship team is obviously in Golden State, but at 33 years old, this will also be his final opportunity to sign a big-money, long-term deal during free agency.

Zach LaVine    G  Bulls

 

 

Zach LaVine (knee) said that he's "feeling really good" but he remains without an official timetable to return to the court. "I’m feeling really good,’’ LaVine said. "Attacking this injury like I do everything in life. Working my butt off for it every day. In the gym doing as much as possible. There’s always that base timeline of nine to 12 months. I feel like with my ability I’m always able to come back early, but I really haven’t set a timetable for that." LaVine will be right around the nine-month mark in November, but the Bulls will likely exercise some caution in bringing him back considering they've begun their rebuild.

Alan Williams    C  Suns

 

 

The Suns have extended a qualifying offer to Alan Williams, making him a restricted free agent. This was an easy decision for Phoenix to make after Williams' mini-bust out after the All-Star break this past season when he put in averages of 11.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per contest on 51.4 percent shooting. It'll be interesting to see what kind of offers Williams sees on the open market, but if he remains in Phoenix and the Suns open the year with Alex Len and Tyson Chandler on the roster, it'll be difficult for Williams to crack the standard league equation.

Alex Len    F/C  Suns

 

 

The Suns have extended a qualifying offer to Alex Len, making him a restricted free agent. The Suns will now be able to match any offer that Len receives on the open market this offseason, and they also can offer him the most money during free agency. Len has been consistently inconsistent throughout his career thus far, so he's not really on the standard league radar at the moment.
