Derrick Rose's cap number for next summer will be at least $25 million, so having his Bird Rights can be helpful, but only to a certain degree. If the Knicks wanted to re-sign him, they can still exceed the cap to do so. But the most likely route would be to extend him or renounce his Bird Rights and sign him as a free agent.

The Knicks have Derrick Rose's Bird Rights, so they can exceed the salary cap to re-sign him next summer if they choose. This is significant because it would allow the Knicks to use most of their cap space to sign free agents in the summer of 2017 and then also re-sign Rose. The Knicks can also sign Rose to a three-year extension before 6/30/2017 because he has been under the same contract for more than three years.

The Memphis Grizzlies claimed ex-Knicks guard Tony Wroten off of waivers Friday. The Knicks released Wroten on Wednesday after signing him late in the season. New York at one point appeared optimistic that Wroten could help them next season, so the decision to waive him was a bit of a surprise. Wroten now returns to Memphis, which selected him in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Best takeaway from Heat center Hassan Whiteside's meeting with the media was that he likes how the tables have turned, from him begging teams for tryouts less than 2 years ago to "now they're calling me" when free agency starts July 1.
