As of earlier this week, Noah remained opposed to a buyout, sources say.


1:50 a.m. ET: The Memphis Grizzlies are still holding out for a first-round pick to move Tyreke Evans -- and Boston, Denver and Philadelphia have resisted offers beyond either a young player or a second-rounder, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Lakers aren't abandoning a summer pursuit of stars, but they are recalibrating their focus on a 2019 class that could include San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard, Golden State's Klay Thompson and Minnesota's Jimmy Butler, league sources said.

Feb. 5 updates

6:36p.m. ET: The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to trade center Tyler Zeller to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Rashad Vaughn and a protected 2018 second-round pick, league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Feb. 1 updates

1:21 p.m. ET: The New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to trade center Omer Asik, guards Tony Allen and Jameer Nelson and a protected 2018 first-round pick to the Chicago Bulls for forward Nikola Mirotic, a second-round pick and the rights to trade second-round picks in the 2021 draft, league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Bulls are expected to waive Allen and Nelson, the sources said. New Orleans agreed to guarantee Mirotic's $12.5 million option for the 2018-19 season, clinching the deal.


11:12 a.m. ET: If the Golden State Warriors can create a max salary slot this offseason, the defending champs could position themselves to secure a meeting with LeBron James, league sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes.

ESPN NBA front office insider Bobby Marks detailed the moves -- some more complicated than others -- that could land King James with Golden State.


10:45 a.m. ET: Exiled New York Knicks center Joakim Noah won't be required to return to the team before the passing of the Feb. 8 NBA trade deadline, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

10:42 a.m. ET: Greg Monroe has agreed to a contract buyout with the Phoenix Suns, clearing the way for him to become an unrestricted free agent, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

6:30 p.m. ET: The LA Clippers have agreed to trade All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

9:35 a.m. ET: The Detroit Pistons have made starting shooting guard Avery Bradley available in trade talks, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Jan. 9 update

8:30 a.m. ET: League executives and agents judging the market believe that Isaiah Thomas, who is in a contract year and is expected to seek a max deal this summer, has the best chance at a significant contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the Brooklyn Nets, Phoenix Suns and Indiana Pacers are other possibilities, according to a report from ESPN's Brian Windhorst. Cleveland has Thomas' full Bird rights.

Jan. 8 updates

5:33 p.m. ET: So far, serious offers for LA Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who can decline the player option on his $24.1 million contract for 2018-19, have been slow to come, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

5:01 p.m. ET: According to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Detroit Pistons pursued Orlando Magic forward Evan Fournier, but any potential deal would have been hard to execute without including the contract of guard Reggie Jackson, who will be out until February with a sprained ankle.
