Could the Spurs land LaMarcus Aldridge?

ESPN's Tom Penn said it can happen: "Spurs have room to do it. ... The challenge for the Spurs is how will they do this dance?"

17 guys have made 500+ 3s over last 4 seasons. Only 5 of 'em have shot > 40%: Curry, Klay, Korver, Redick ... Danny Green. Elite of elite.

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Trades, like signings, can't be "made" until July 9, but Spurs find home for Splitter with Hawks agreeing to take on Tiago salary via trade

Calvin Watkins @calvinwatkins

James Harden was part of the recruiting dinner for LaMarcus Aldridge last night. Says a lot about how front office feels about him.

Hearing Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler is leaning strongly toward taking the five-year, $90 mil max Chicago offered as opposed to shorter deal

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Sobering new NBA reality: Goran Dragic, Khris Middleton & Al-Farouq Aminu just got combined deals=$200 million. Combined All-Star berths=0.

Luke Ridnour: Trades have been 'funny'

On being traded 4 times in less than 1 week: "I really just said, 'Eh, let me know at the end of the day what happened.' My wife would get a funny picture from somebody and show me to kind of keep me updated." (via Mike & Mike)

Millsap loss would be 'huge' for Hawks

After Orlando offered a max 4-year, $80M offer, Paul Millsap canceled other meetings. "If he leaves Atlanta, that's huge, and it helps put Orlando back on the map," said ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Mike Dunleavy, Bulls closing in on deal

The deal would be worth 3 years, $15M, league sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein. "He likes the familiarity of the situation and the franchise has been good to him," a source told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Bulls free agency plan was simple this summer: Bring back Butler and Dunleavy. Find another backup guard. They are well on their way.

Goran Dragic signing helps Heat

ESPN's Tom Haberstroh said the Heat signing Dragic "is huge, because they did not sign him to the max." The extra money will help with Dwyane Wade, plus Dragic is a "great player. One of the best finishing guards in the NBA."

Who are DeAndre Jordan's suitors?

ESPN's Chris Broussard said it's probably a 2-team race: "The Knicks have a great pitch, 'Hey, come to the East, you can dominate.' ... Realistically it's Dallas and the Lakers."

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

So to update: Dragic in, Deng in, Winslow drafted, Bosh on track for healthy return, Whiteside locked in for next season. It's on Wade now.

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Dragic accepts deal that averages $18 million a year from Heat. He could have signed for average of $22 million. D-Wade now on deck

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh

Dragic signing for below max ($90M vs. $108M) could be huge for luxury tax bill and Wade's chances at getting max 1-year.
