Derrick Favors could be a potential trade target for the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cleveland is looking to add some size, and Favors is available, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this report. Favors value in Cleveland would depend on the moving pieces, but it's tough to see him improving his stock with the Cavs. He's also been linked to the Bulls, but his value would likely take a hit there if they didn't also move Robin Lopez.

Marcus Smart delivered a mixed bag in Saturday's 117-92 win vs. the Bulls, finishing with 11 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal, and two blocks on 4-of-12 shooting.

The defensive stats were nice, but everything else was not, and the fact that he didn't make a 3-pointer is hard to overlook. Over his last three games, Smart has averaged 12.0 points, 2.0 steals, and 2.0 3-pointers on 12-of-34 (35.3%) shooting, and that's basically reflective of what he's brought to your fantasy team all season. As an aside, in reference to the Bulls, Smart offered an interesting quote. "I feel like we played our old selves," he said.

The Bulls are reportedly "still intrigued" by Jahlil Okafor's talent, but are hesitant to "give up anything of significance" to acquire him.

According to Bulls writer Carlos Douglas Jr., the team "might just wait until the summer of 2018 to pursue him" in free agency. The Suns were also linked to Okafor in early November, but first they'd need to buy out or trade Greg Monroe. Atlanta and New York have also been rumored as possible landing spots, but there's no clear traction in any of these scenarios.

The Suns are reportedly interested in Jahlil Okafor.

The Suns are looking to open a roster spot by moving or buying out Greg Monroe, and they'd reportedly like to fill that hole with Okafor. However, if they aren't able to move Tyson Chandler or Alex Len prior to acquiring Okafor, he wouldn't really be in a much better situation in Phoenix than the one he's currently in in Philadelphia. The Bulls and Hawks are also rumored to be interested in Okafor, and they'd be a much better spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops.

The Bulls and the Hawks are reportedly the most likely landing spots for Jahlil Okafor.

These are some of the few teams that would make sense for Okafor, but thus far, they haven't come forth with an enticing offer for Philly, as the 76ers would like to secure a draft pick in any deal sending away the former No. 3 overall selection. Phoenix and New York have also been rumored to have interest in Okafor, but those teams are already loaded in their frontcourt and it's tough to see a deal going through where the numbers would work.

Free agent Dion Waiters will meet with the Lakers on Sunday night, according to Michael Scotto.

Waiters has previously been linked to the Bulls, Knicks and Kings, in addition to the Heat. He suggested that he might accept a discounted salary to stay in Miami, where he thrived last season, but that depends on the offers he gets elsewhere. Stay tuned.

Dion Waiters has been talking to the Knicks, Bulls and Kings.

If the Heat can't bring in Gordon Hayward, Miami would be the heavy favorite to bring back some Philly Cheese. Waiters has also said he is willing to take a hometown discount, which makes sense after he had his best year as a pro.

The Rockets are likely to meet with Amir Johnson this weekend.

The list is getting pretty long for teams looking to meet with Amir, but none of them have been the Celtics so far. The Bulls, Nets and Raptors are also expected to be in the mix, based on an ESPN report.
Fri, Jun 30, 2017 11:06:00 PM

The Bulls, Nets and Raptors are suitors to sign Amir Johnson, according to ESPN NY's Ian Begley.

The Raptors have been in the mix for a while and could be set for a reunion. Johnson is 30 years old now, and he really maxes out at around 20 minutes per game these days. He'll likely serve as depth on most teams.

The Bulls aren't involved in the Milos Teodosic talks, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

If we had to come up with a top-five reporters who are most plugged in on their beat, K.C. Johnson would easily be in there. In other words, the smart money is on the Bulls looking to give the keys to Kris Dunn next year as they look to rebuild. Teodosic is fully expected to come over to the NBA, but the 30-year-old guard doesn't have a clear destination right now.

The Suns and Bulls have reportedly discussed a trade involving Eric Bledsoe and the No. 16 pick.

It's unclear what the Bulls would be giving up in this scenario, and we've heard enough variations on this theme to be skeptical -- less than an hour ago it was reported that Chicago was "looking at other things [than the Suns offers] for now." Bledsoe has also been linked to the Nuggets in a package for Emmanuel Mudiay and a draft pick, so there are multiple scenarios in play.

The Suns have reportedly talked to the Bulls about a trade involving Eric Bledsoe, but Chicago is "looking at other things for now."

Phoenix may be trying to package Bledsoe with the No. 4 pick to acquire a big-name player, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. It doesn't sound like the Bulls would part with Jimmy Butler for that package, but the Suns are looking at a variety of options involving Bledsoe -- they've also discussed a deal that would send Bledsoe to Denver in exchange for Emmanuel Mudiay and the No. 13 pick.

If Jimmy Butler is traded, the Bulls are expected to target De'Aaron Fox or Josh Jackson, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

While Johnson is one of the most plugged-in reporters on the beat in the entire league, this isn't a surprise as the Bulls have been linked to both for a couple weeks. If the Bulls could pull a Butler deal off, they may have to trade into the top five to get either of these guys -- Fox doesn't seem like he'll be going past five while Jackson could slide after that if he doesn't go .

The Bulls are reportedly prepared to offer Milos Teodosic a multi-year, big-money deal this offseason.

Teodosic has an offer on the table from CSKA Moscow for $12 million over three years, but the Bulls are reportedly willing to give him substantially more money in order to lure him away from Europe. Teodosic is easily the most talented point guard not currently playing in the NBA, but it is rather strange to see the Chicago franchise interested in signing the 30-year-old PG considering they're hinting at a rebuild by fielding offers for Jimmy Butler. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

The Bulls met with Hamidou Diallo on Friday.

Younger and more athletic? Diallo is extremely athletic with his 2017 combine-high 44.5-inch vertical, he has a 6'11" wingspan, and he's still only 18 years old. The Bulls overpaid on Cam Payne and they may be regretting that, so they could be going after a PG in the first round.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was quiet on Wednesday, going 2-of-4 from the field for five points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.

KCP simply wasn't involved offensively tonight, and his usage should jump vs. the Magic on Friday. Detroit is now 3-11 in the second game of back-to-back sets this season, which is the worst mark in the NBA. Tonight's setback leaves them a full game behind the No. 8 seed Heat, with the Bulls breathing down their neck just one game back.

If the Thunder and Bulls pull off a trade that would send Doug McDermott and Taj Gibson to the Thunder for Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne and draft compensation would also likely be part of the deal.

Lauvergne has been getting extra run with the Thunder due to the absence of Enes Kanter (arm), but Kanter is nearing a return to action. And if Lauvergne ends up with the Bulls, he would likely be in the rotation, as the Bulls only have Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic (as of now) to play at the four. Having said that, it's still hard to imagine Lauvergne having 12-team fantasy value with the Bulls, or any other team.

The Bulls have "continued to push on a trade" for Jahlil Okafor, according to The Vertical.

Chicago and Philadelphia are having ongoing discussions and if Okafor doesn't end up with the Bulls, it's still likely that he'll find himself wearing another jersey after the break. The Celtics, Pacers and Kings have also been tied to Okafor -- it depends upon the players involved, but Sacramento looks like the ideal team for fantasy purposes.

The Rockets are reportedly uninterested in trading away Patrick Beverley at the deadline.

Beverley has reportedly received interest from the Cavs, Knicks and Bulls, but with Beverley also happy in Houston it would be shocking to see a trade go down. Beverley has been a top-50 guy this season, although his value could take a slight hit, as his minutes are likely to be reduced with Lou Williams now on the roster.

The Celtics are reportedly unwilling to include Jae Crowder in the Jimmy Butler trade talks.

"That's I think the main sticking point there is that he just does not want to give up Jae Crowder in the deal," David Aldridge said. "And that's the guy that Chicago's insisting on right now in any package for Jimmy Butler." The Celtics appear reluctant to include anything of any real value in the Butler trade, which is what makes a deadline deal for Butler seem unlikely. Crowder is on the books through 2020 for a bargain discount of just $28.2 million, so it's understandable why Boston is reluctant to part ways with their defensive stalwart.
