Auto Update: On


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

Novak Djokovic advances at Wimbledon

Including today's 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 win against No. 91-ranked Jarkko Nieminen, Djokovic hasn’t dropped a set in his last 25 matches at majors against players outside the top 50. Live Wimbledon coverage on ESPN


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.

Broussard: Aldridge too busy

Chris Broussard on LaMarcus Aldridge's free agency: "He's meeting with too many teams. ... It's going to be the Spurs or the Lakers." (via Mike & Mike)


Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

ESPN sources say Portland Trail Blazers and Damian Lillard are nearing agreement on a five-year max extension with in excess of $120 million

Shane Battier @ShaneBattier

All this cap space being doled out today almost makes me want to attempt a comeback.......I said almost....Haha. Wowsers.

Rockets also meet with Aldridge

The Lakers were the first to sit down with LaMarcus Aldridge on Tuesday night, but Houston also got face-time with the free agent, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Aldridge will also meet with the Spurs, Mavs, Suns and Raptors.

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh

Not to minimize all the Pelicans have done to make him feel at home, but AD completely turns the franchise around at below-market rates.

Bucks close to deal with Khris Middleton

The restricted free agent would receive a 5-year deal worth an estimated $70M, league sources told ESPN's Marc Stein. Once Middleton is secured, the Bucks will shift their focus to acquiring a top center. Greg Monroe and Tyson Chandler are among the names on their wish list.

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh

The Anthony Davis deal is Exhibit A why the Sixers tank every year. Luck into a transcendent No. 1, get him for 8 years no matter the mkt.

It's all about the money for Davis

Two-time All-Star Anthony Davis agreed to a five-year, $145M extension with the Pelicans when free agency started early this morning. That deal would surpass Kobe Bryant's 7-year, $136M contract signed in 2004-05 as the richest in terms of total money in NBA history.
