The NBA off-season isn’t as active as it was earlier this year, but there are still moves being made.

Check out the latest NBA news and rumors below. 

• In an effort to curb the “Hack-A-Shaq” strategy used by some teams, the NBA announced that in the final two minutes of each quarter, any away-from-the-play fouls will result in one free throw and possession. In addition, any foul occurring before the ball is in-bounded will result in a free throw and possession. 

• The Memphis Grizzlies announced Tuesday they waived Tony Wroten. Wroten was cut by the New York Knicks a month ago.

• Free-agent guard Gary Neal made a Facebook post detailing why he thinks he should get paid like his fellow Washington Wizards bench members. According to CSN Mid-Atlantic, some players and coaches on the Wizards view Neal as “selfish” and more worried about his own stats. 

• The Chicago Bulls aren’t shopping Jimmy Butler “for now,” reports Zach Lowe of ESPN. 

• Guard Ronnie Price has agreed to a two-year deal with an unknown team, reports John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7. Gambadoro says it’s not the Phoenix Suns, who wanted Price back on a one-year deal.
