Corey Brewer has reportedly reached a buyout agreement with the Lakers.

Assuming he clears waivers, he'll then be able to sign with a team of his choosing, which will likely be a playoff-bound squad. Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Brewer will seriously consider reuniting with his college coach, Billy Donovan in OKC, but he will be talking to other teams too. Brewer could potentially start with the Thunder, but he wouldn't be much more than a late-round guy there.

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have agreed to a contract buyout.

Wade was owed $23.8 million but he'll leave approximately $8 million on the table in the buyout, which allows him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it shouldn't take long for Wade to strike a new deal -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs are the "clear frontrunner," but the Spurs, Heat and Thunder are also mentioned as possibilities.

Updating a previous item, Trey Burke has changed course and will not sign with the Thunder on Saturday.

This is a rare situation for a player to change his mind, but Burke should find himself at an NBA in the near future. He played well last season in his 57 games with the Wizards, but he isn't a lock to make a team off a camp deal.

Kevin Durant apologized on Tuesday for criticizing the Thunder and his former coach Billy Donovan.

Durant responded to a critic via his official Twitter account earlier in the week, writing in the third-person, "[Durant] didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan. His roster wasn’t that good. It was just him and [Russell Westbrook] ... Imagine taking Russ off that team, see how bad they were. KD can’t win with those cats." Durant has since deleted the tweets and denounced his actions as "childish" and "idiotic." He'll get a rowdy reception when the Warriors visit Oklahoma City on Nov. 22.

Carmelo Anthony said he has not met with Knicks management this summer.

Anthony declined to comment on the specifics of his current situation with the Knicks, only saying that the past 12 months have been an "emotional rollercoaster." Recent reports have indicated that Melo is uninterested in waiving his no-trade clause to go to Cleveland or Portland, which essentially leaves OKC and Houston as the only realistic landing spots, with Houston being the odds-on favorite.

Carmelo Anthony's preferred destination in any trade remains the Houston Rockets, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

Anthony has been linked to Portland, Cleveland and OKC, but at the moment, Houston seems like the most realistic landing spot considering it's ultimately Melo's decision given that he holds a no-trade clause in his contract. The Knicks would reportedly like to go after Kyrie Irving, but not if that means sacrificing Kristaps Porzingis, and a package centered around Anthony probably wouldn't be enough to get a deal done considering what Cleveland is looking for.

Rudy Gay's preference would be to sign with the Thunder, but there's a "sizeable gap" on what Oklahoma City can offer and what Gay is looking for, according to sources of Royce Young of ESPN.

The Thunder still need to try and work out a deal for restricted free agent Andre Roberson, but if Roberson's price gets too high, that could make bringing in Gay an extremely difficult endeavor. Gay has also been linked to the Timberwolves, Kings and Spurs, but him re-upping with Sacramento seems incredibly unlikely considering he opted out of his contract with the club worth $14.3 million despite the fact that he's currently recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

The Timberwolves, Warriors, Thunder and Pelicans are all reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Nick Young.

In terms of fantasy hoops, Young's best opportunity to produce would be in New Orleans, but the Warriors present Swaggy P with the best opportunity to chase a ring, which is reportedly something that is important to him. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out, but we likely won't see a team make a move on Young until some of the bigger name two-guards come off the board.

Michael Carter-Williams received a phone call from the Rockets at the start of free agency.

ESPN's Marc Spears is reporting that MCW is also drawing interest from the Knicks, Thunder, Mavericks, Pelicans and Hornets. Carter-Williams is coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged career-lows in points (6.6), assists (2.5), FG percentage (.366) and assist rate (.200). However, the former Rookie of the Year is still just 25 years old and possesses a rare combination of size and skill.

Ty Lawson has fielded calls from multiple teams, including the Timberwolves, Kings, Thunder and Pelicans.

Lawson may have to wait until the remaining top-tier point guards find homes before he inks a new deal. He has had some issues off the floor, but Lawson served as a solid backup last season in Sacramento, where he averaged 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 25.1 minutes.

Zach Randolph is set to meet with teams in Los Angeles when free agency opens, and is getting interest from the Kings, Thunder and Clippers, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

Z-Bo has said he's looking forward to his time as a free agent, so he's going to take some meetings with teams to see what they have to offer. Still, he's said his goal is to remain with the Grizzlies, which isn't surprising based on the impact he's had on the team's identity and his impact in the community.

The Thunder could be in contact with Michael Carter-Williams this weekend, according to Royce Young of ESPN.com.

While the Thunder do need a backup PG, this probably isn't the best fit. Carter-Williams may get some interest from teams, but the days of him being a starter on opening night are likely over.

The Thunder plan on "chasing" Blake Griffin in free agency, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

It's nice to have dreams, right? With OKC paying approximately $90M combined to Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams, it's hard to see what the Thunder has to offer that could entice the Clippers in a possible sign-and-trade deal. A homecoming story always tugs at the heart strings, but we're not considering this scenario likely to come to fruition, especially when we've heard next to nothing from Griffin's camp about a desire to head home.

It would be "difficult" for the Knicks to hire Masai Ujiri, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Less than 24 hours after a report that the Knicks were reportedly "confident" about hiring Ujiri, Shelburne pumps the brakes on that idea. Realistically, the Knicks can't afford to give dilute their asset base any further, and that makes hiring Ujiri basically a pipe dream. Shelburne also mentions OKC's Sam Presti and ex-Cavs GM David Griffin as additional names of interest on New York's radar.

Rudy Gay will host free agent meetings in Austin, Texas this weekend.

He left $14.3 million on the table to become a free agent, so it will be interesting to see if his gamble paid off. Adrian Wojnaroski of The Vertical is reporting that the Thunder are interested in Gay, but it's not clear what other teams will meet with the veteran forward for now. Gay will be 31 years old this August and is coming off a ruptured Achilles tendon, but he's reportedly ahead of schedule in his rehab.

The Clippers will try to re-sign Blake Griffin as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Los Angeles sending away Chris Paul to Houston may have hurt their chances of retaining Griffin, although they still have money on their side as an incentive as they'll be able to offer him roughly $50 million more than any other team could. The Thunder have long been rumored to have an interest in going after Griffin as a free agent, but they'll need to move around some salary in order to be players in the Griffin sweepstakes.

Jawun Evans reportedly has workouts scheduled with Portland, Oklahoma City and Utah.

Evans put in averages of 19.0 points, 6.5 dimes, 1.1 triples, 1.7 steals and 2.8 turnovers during his sophomore season at Oklahoma State, and while he is a bit undersized and lacks explosive athleticism, he's able to make up for that with his strength, solid footwork and a high basketball IQ. He's particularly adept at running the pick-and-roll, and he's currently projected to come off the board in the 30-range.
