Perhaps if Bradley Beal were to request a trade away from the Washington Wizards—as two sources close to the All-Star guard told Bleacher Report he was considering—Philadelphia could emerge as a serious front-runner with a Simmons offer. In the event Beal does not become available, the Sixers have yet to make serious traction on any other Simmons deal, sources said.

Adrian Wojnarowski: The Knicks are trading center Nerlens Noel and guard Alec Burks to the Pistons, sources tell ESPN. The Knicks will unload $19M more in salary, clearing the way for cap space to try and sign free agent guard Jalen Brunson.
Jon Krawczynski: Really nice prestart to free agency for Wolves to get Taurean Prince wrapped up. Valuable piece as a leader and do-it-all forward. The second year on the deal is nonguaranteed, sources tell @TheAthletic. @Adrian Wojnarowski first on agreement.
Bobby Marks: Prince is extension eligible because he is still under contract by Minnesota. He would have become a free agent later this week if a deal had not been reached. There is no trade restriction because he signed a 2 year deal.
Michael Scotto: Sources: The Cleveland Cavaliers won’t tender a qualifying offer to center Moses Brown, @HoopsHype has learned. The 7-foot-1, 22-year-old center will become an unrestricted free agent. Brown could be an intriguing development option for NBA teams around the league.
JD Shaw: Point guard Jared Harper will be playing summer league with the New Orleans Pelicans, @HoopsRumors has learned. Harper signed a two-way deal in March and will soon be a free agent. He averaged 21.2 points and 7.2 assists in the G League.
