Darren Wolfson: Among many FAs the #Twolves have registered some level of interest: Tolliver, Nick Young, Lance Stephenson, Dante Cunningham, Amir Johnson, Trevor Booker, Jabari Bird, Ennis.
Cunningham, 30, had been one of the more attractive free agents remaining, receiving interest from New Orleans, Minnesota, Milwaukee and Toronto, league sources said. Cunningham’s agent, Joel Bell, worked with the Pelicans’ front office to finalize an agreement Tuesday.
Darren Wolfson: The Bucks have hopped in on FA Dante Cunningham, I hear. Milt Newton/Matt Bollero connection. #Twolves still trying and being patient.
New Orleans has been aggressive trying to bring Cunningham back, particularly now that Solomon Hill is expected to miss much of the season after he underwent surgery to repair a torn hamstring. But the Wolves remain firmly in the conversation and might be the frontrunner.
Darren Wolfson: Another one of many FAs the #Twolves have had talks about: Dante Cunningham. But he won't take the minimum now. Shot it well last year.

Beginning with Simmons’ first paycheck on Nov. 15, Philadelphia began to take back the per-game salary of $360,000 for each game Simmons missed in the season. Because Simmons received a $16.5 million advance of his $33 million salary in the offseason, there wasn’t enough money in each paycheck to cover the per-game deductions. The back injury first affected Simmons during the spring of the pandemic-interrupted 2020 season. He also reported discomfort in his back upon reporting to Sixers training camp in October. The injury was assessed and treated by Philadelphia’s team doctors, and he was cleared to resume basketball activities shortly thereafter. That period was the only time Philadelphia did not find Simmons in breach of his contract last season, sources said.
