Woj reports that the Indiana Pacers have reached a 4 year/22.6 million dollar contract with Harry Giles. They also will resign Justin Holliday, but details of his contract are not released.

"What does this mean for Miles Turner?" Bill Simmons posted on twitter.

Bobby Marks is reporting that the final year of Giles' contract is non-guaranteed, and has a decrease in salary from year 1 to year 2.  Likewise, Holiday's deal may contain a team option for year 2, as the Pacers try to maintain flexibility in their quest to keep Oladipo even if league revenues (and thus the tax line) crater due to Covid-19.

Reggie Jackson to Golden State for the taxpayer MLE on two years, roughly 12M total.
MKG to Golden State for the minimum

Jeff Green, DeMarre Carroll and Bruno Caboclo all resigned with minimums in Houston.

Reports are that an offer was made to Derrick Favors by Houston as well, but he seems to be holding out for more money.

Correction on Marc Gasol's contract. It was a one year, 15 million dollar contract to stay in Toronto.

Ibaka appears like he is headed elsewhere after talks with Toronto broke down.

Chris Boucher resigns with Toronto on a 4-year, $30.1 million deal.

Fred VanVleet resigns with Toronto 4-year, $78 million deal

RHJ has resigned with Toronto as well. Details of his contract are still unclear, but he will stay in Toronto.

The Clippers have engaged in contract negotiations with Serge Ibaka and Paul Milsap. This could be smoke to get Harrell's asking price down, but there is real interest on the Clippers part in adding an experienced and talented big man to their roster.

Christian Wood has agreed to a contract with the Chicago Bulls for 4 years and 104M.

"It feels good that my hard work has finally paid off. We look forward to helping Chicago build its next dynasty." Wood said in a statement.

Per Woj, "Unless Chicago can move roughly 34 million in salary without taking any back, they cannot offer Christian Wood that deal. That's disheartening for Wood and potentially embarrassing for the Chicago organization. We will wait to see what happens, but my sources say that Wood has given the Bulls a deadline to open up the necessary space or he will pursue other options."

The Chicago Bulls have reached an agreement with the OKC Thunder  with a thad young for Abdel Nader swap. OKC will use their trade exemption to make this trade work.
Thad Young's salary for next season is $13,545,000.

The Thunder have 3 trade exceptions:
$10,389,997 (expires 7/10/20)
$9,346,153 (expires 7/8/20)
$1,620,564 (expires 1/25/21)

None of them is big enough to absorb Young's salary. They cannot combine them together to acquire Young. They cannot combine them with another player either. That's not how trade exceptions work.
