Here is a look at some of the top NBA rumors for Sunday, May 24:

  • Terrence Ross had a disappointing 2014-15 campaign, and his production faded later in the season. It appears that part of the problem may have been related to his health. "The Raptors announced Saturday that Ross underwent surgery in Van Nuys, Calif., to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from his left ankle," wrote Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun. He should be 100 percent before training camp begins.

  • Only time will tell which player the Minnesota Timberwolves will select with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but it appears that Flip Saunders will be back next season to coach the rookie. "I think so," Wolves owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press. "I think he worked so hard last year with all those problems that he wants an opportunity to see if we are healthy, if we really have the team he thought he had."

  • Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer thinks that if Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor go Nos. 1 and 2 in the draft, the Philadelphia 76ers will take D'Angelo Russell at No. 3. "[T]he belief is that Russell will join power forward Nerlens Noel and center Joel Embiid, the current cornerstones of the Sixers," he wrote. "The thought is that his ability to shoot and pass would complement the two Sixers post players."
