Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Don’t be surprised to see the Rockets make a run at Clint Capela now that Brook Lopez is off the table. Hawks have already shown that they are looking to shed salary this summer, and they already have a replacement on the roster, so the price won’t be high – 2:39 PM

D’Angelo Russell
Dillon Brooks
Brook Lopez
Christian Wood
Kelly Oubre
Max Strus
Donte DiVincenzo
Russell Westbrook – 9:40 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Right now, Houston has the cap space for either Dillon Brooks or Brook Lopez. Probably not both.
If they want to clear the space to get both, I imagine they could dump Kevin Porter Jr’s. weird, one-year guaranteed contract by attaching an FRP. FVV makes KPJ unnecessary anyway. – 9:22 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
The Raptors should trade Poeltl to the Rockets before they can sign Brook Lopez – 9:22 PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Fred VanVleet is a nice add for the Rockets. A culture builder. If they land Brook Lopez next they could end up a lot better than people might expect. FVV and Lopez would elevate their talented group of young players. – 9:11 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Aside from DLo and Reaves (or the cap MLE if DLo leaves), the last Lakers domino will be backup center. Here are the best bigs left on the table (aside from Brook Lopez):
– Christian Wood
– Dwight Powell
– Jock Landale
– Mason Plumlee
– Paul Reed
– Mo Wagner
– Cody Zeller – 8:51 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Brook Lopez’s free agent decision is definitely one of the larger dominoes free agents and teams are waiting to learn. There was increasing word today that Houston’s offer could even exceed the two-year, $40 million figure that’s been widely rumored in recent days. – 7:56 PM

Fred VanVleet
Brook Lopez
D’Angelo Russell
Austin Reaves
Russell Westbrook – 7:39 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I don’t think the Lakers are getting Brook Lopez for the MLE, but I also didn’t think the Lakers were getting Marc Gasol for the minimum in 2020, so I’ve learned to retain some optimism when it comes to older big men. – 7:13 PM
