Dennis Schroder implied during a recent interview that he's not on the same page with Atlanta management.

"I don't know what the organization has in mind," said Schroder. "That's why I'm going back in a week [to meet with management]. Of course, Atlanta is my city... but I have to look individually what's best for me... I will be 25 in September and of course, I want to win a title sometime. In my prime, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, I want to compete. I cannot be the second to last team in the Eastern Conference." Schroder also said it "wouldn't be too bad" to play for the Pacers or Bucks, so it'll be interesting to see what comes out of his upcoming meeting with management.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Raptors "have tried to work their way into the DeAndre Jordan trade mix."

The Cavaliers are firmly in the mix and the Bucks are also rumored to be interested, but LAC's asking price is likely still very high. The Raptors would likely need a third team to help facilitate a deal, but if they are serious about adding Jordan, you would think Jonas Valanciunas goes elsewhere. No deal is imminent for now.

The Clippers reportedly haven't received many enticing offers for DeAndre Jordan.

The Rockets, Bucks, Trail Blazers and Wizards have all expressed interest in Jordan, but none of those trade talks have gotten "anywhere near serious," according to sources Zach Lowe. The Rockets got close in the past, but with how well Clint Capela has been playing this season, there's not much incentive to bring on DJ. Portland has reportedly "backed away" from Jordan for now, and the Bucks and Wizards simply might not have the pieces to get a deal done.

The Bucks have reportedly been eying Hassan Whiteside ahead of the trade deadline.

It's no secret that Milwaukee would like to add a center at the deadline, as they've also been linked to DeAndre Jordan, but this is the first we're hearing of them having interest in Whiteside. Whiteside has been rumored to be available, so it'll interesting to see if this report gains any traction. Jabari Parker would likely need to be included to entice Miami to pull the trigger, and a Whiteside departure would open up minutes for guys like Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo.

The Trail Blazers have reportedly engaged with the Clippers in trade talks regarding DeAndre Jordan.

Portland, Milwaukee and Cleveland have all reached out to Los Angeles regarding Jordan's availability, but thus far, the Clippers have not received a proposal that they find "seriously tempting," according to sources of Marc Stein of the New York Times. Jordan could be one of the biggest names moved at the deadline, although with the Clippers currently sitting on the No. 8 seed out West, there's less incentive to move him.

Denzel Valentine cooled off in 26 minutes on Saturday, finishing a lopsided loss vs. Boston with just five points, five rebounds, a steal, and a 3-pointer on 1-of-3 shooting.

Valentine had back-to-back nice games coming into this one, but he just couldn't get it going in a tough matchup vs. the Celtics. If you picked Valentine up this week, give him a chance to right the ship in the upcoming week ahead with matchups vs. the Bucks, Knicks, and Pacers before making any decisions. That being said, Zach LaVine's (knee) return will further crowd the picture, so don't get too reliant on Valentine for anything.

The Bucks are "somewhat reluctant" to trade Malcolm Brogdon in a deal for Eric Bledsoe, according to team reporter Gery Woelfel.

While Brogdon is only a second-year player, he is going to be turning 25 years old, so the Suns actually have 11 younger players on their roster. On Arizona Sports 98.7, general manager Ryan McDonough said teams have been "aggressive" with offers, but he wouldn't say if a deal was imminent. Bledsoe's fantasy owners may have to stash him for a bit.

Richard Jefferson has officially cleared waivers, and he's now an unrestricted free agent.

Jefferson will be free to join a team of his choosing, and both the Bucks and Nuggets have expressed interest in the 37-year-old swingman. However, the Bucks added DeAndre Liggins on Monday, bringing their roster to 15, so they appear to be out of the running. Will Barton suffered what may have been a significant ankle injury during Monday's practice, so Jefferson could help them out with some backcourt depth during Barton's absence, but he won't have any fantasy value there.

The Timberwolves are reportedly putting the "full-court press" on their recruiting efforts towards Dante Cunningham.

The Wolves have an open roster spot and they're clearly high on Cunningham, but they also can only offer the minimum and he wouldn't be in a great spot for minutes as he'd be competing for playing time with the likes of Taj Gibson, Nemanja Bjelica and Shabazz Muhammad. The Pelicans and Bucks are also rumored to have interest in Cunningham, but he won't be a fantasy factor on any of these teams.

The Knicks are no longer all that interested in re-signing Derrick Rose during free agency.

Rose had a supporter in Phil Jackson, but with Jackson no longer a part of the picture, support for re-signing Rose amongst the Knicks execs has dwindled. Rose met with the Bucks on Monday, but it's unclear how far those talks went. Through 64 games during his 2016-17 campaign, Rose compiled averages of 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.2 turnovers per game on 47.1 percent shooting, which was only good enough for late-round value in standard 9-cat leagues.

The Lakers, Knicks and Bucks reportedly contacted unrestricted FA Ben McLemore soon after free agency began on Friday night.

The Lakers traded away D'Angelo Russell this offseason, while Nick Young opted for free agency, so L.A.'s backcourt isn't particularly deep despite the arrival of Lonzo Ball. McLemore struggled to make a sustained impact for fantasy owners in Sacramento, and it would require an ideal scenario to warrant drafting him next season. The Vertical also added Memphis contacted B-Mac.

Edrice "Bam" Adebayo will work out for the Bucks on Wednesday.

Adebayo is slightly undersized to play the five, but he makes up for that with supreme athleticism and brute strength. He put in averages of 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game during his one-and-done season at Kentucky, and he currently projects to go somewhere towards the back half of the first round on draft day.
