Deadline day updates

  • 12:20 p.m. ET: The Miami Heat have agreed to trade Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and James Johnson to the Memphis Grizzlies for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

  • 12:09 p.m. ET: The Memphis Grizzlies and Miami Heat are now focusing on a two-team deal headlined by Andre Iguodala, with Miami and the Oklahoma City Thunder still unable to reach an agreement on a three-team trade that would land forward Danilo Gallinari with the Heat, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

  • 10:40 p.m. ET: The New York Knicks plan to make CAA player agent Leon Rose the franchise’s next president, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.
