  • Andray Blatche could rejoin NBA in March
    Andray Blatche signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers on Saturday for $2.5 million.

    Advice: There are a couple interesting things: The Wizards won't be able to get any money from the deal due to amnestying his contract earlier in his career, and Blatche could wind up back in the NBA in March. He'll join Jordan Crawford on the CBA powerhouse squad. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Taylor says he's healed from injury
    Jeff Taylor said he has healed from his Dec. 20 Achilles tear.

    Advice: He's back with the team after a visit home to Sweden. Taylor wasn't very efficient with Charlotte last season, but he was more aggressive. He'll likely compete for minutes in the second unit for the Hornets. Unless something happens to Gerald Henderson or Lance Stephenson, he won't be on the fantasy map in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ray McCallum is likely to lose minutes
    Ray McCallum is likely to lose minutes to Ramon Sessions.

    Advice: The Kings were swinging and missing through most of the offseason, but Sessions will serve as a key ball-handler in their rotation. McCallum wasn't very efficient and isn't the best long-range shooter, so he'll likely fall behind as the third-string point guard. Plus, rookie Nik Stauskas will hurt Ray Mac's chances as a combo guard. Rotoworld.com

  • Police arrest burglary suspect of PG's home
    Police have arrested a man in connection with an Apr. 28 burglary at the home of Paul George.

    Advice: A diamond-studded NBA All-Star ring worth about $15,000, a $700 Flux watch, a pair of red Jordan 4 Toro tennis shoes and $20 were missing from the home, according to an IMPD report. There were no signs of forced entry on the night of Indiana's Game 5 loss at home to the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Clippers invite Jared Cunningham to camp
    The Clippers invited Jared Cunningham to training camp.

    Advice: He was with the Kings last season and on their championship Las Vegas Summer League roster, averaging 6.8 points, 1.2 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.4 steals. He'll have a tough time making the LAC roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Kings sign Ramon Sessions to two-year deal
    The Kings have agreed to terms with Ramon Sessions on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

    Advice: He should have signed long ago and the Kings were somehow able to sign him and didn't spend too much with their bi-annual exception. He'll likely compete in a backup role with Ray McCallum, who didn't shoot the ball well despite his heavy dose of minutes late in the season. It also wouldn't be a shock to see Sessions unseat Darren Collison at some point. He's still not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to a lower upside and a lower usage rate next to Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. McCallum can be removed from your standard-league draft board while Collison has some added risk in the later rounds. Rotoworld.com

  • Andray Blatche finalizing contract in China
    Andray Blatche is finalizing a deal to play with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China.

    Advice: The Flying Tigers also signed Jordan Crawford, so they should have a fun brand of basketball. Blatche was in talks with multiple NBA teams, but he's likely getting more money from the CBA powerhouse. We'll pass along any official news as it becomes available. Rotoworld.com

  • Middleton doesn't know what his role is
    Khris Middleton said he doesn't know what his role is this season.

    Advice: He is probably going to be the odd man out with the Bucks' two best assets playing the same position as him. Middleton was one of the team's best offensive players last season and shot an impressive 41.4 percent from beyond the arc, but his minutes will likely take a significant hit in 2014-15.

  • Tony Wroten says he wants to wear throwbacks
    Tony Wroten said he wants the 76ers to wear some of their throwback jerseys this season.

    Advice: Shockingly, he didn't say he wanted to wear tight jerseys with sleeves. The team has worn the same jerseys since 2008 and Wroten is referencing the older jerseys from 1998 to the mid-2000s made famous by Allen Iverson. He'll get most of his minutes as a backup and won't have much fantasy value because of his sub-par shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • GSW uncertain when Livingston will return
    The Warriors are uncertain when Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) will be able to play.

    Advice: He's questionable to start the season after his surgery back on on Aug. 15. Livingston was fantastic in Brooklyn due partially to his versatility and the team's lack of depth, but the Warriors won't need him nearly as much. He won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to his lower upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Aron Baynes could be headed to China
    Aron Baynes has received interest from the Shanghai Sharks.

    Advice: He's still a restricted free agent, but the Spurs haven't made any noticeable effort to bring him back. The Sharks are Yao Ming's team and Baynes would likely get significant minutes compared to his marginal role with the Spurs. Rotoworld.com

  • Cavs will sign Amundson for camp
    The Cavs will sign Lou Amundson for training camp.

    Advice: The Cavs do need some depth up front and Amundson will have a chance to make the team. He hasn't played in more than 10 minutes per game in each of his last two seasons, so he won't be a big factor. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonas Jerebko wants to be stretch four
    Jonas Jerebko said he's hoping to fill the role as a stretch four for the Pistons this season.

    Advice: While coach Stan Van Gundy said Jerebko could be part of the team's core, it's not going to be easy with Josh Smith expected to get more run at power forward. Jerebko is only worth a late-round flier in deep leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Wizards not interested in trading for Barea
    The Wizards do not appear interested in trading for J.J. Barea.

    Advice: The Wolves have been trying to dump Barea's contract for over a year now and are very unlikely to get any takers. He's likely to be bought out, especially with the Wolves currently at 16 guaranteed contracts. Rotoworld.com

  • Raduljica to sign with a Chinese team
    Miroslav Raduljica is signing to play in China with Shandong this season.

    Advice: He was in the news this week for saying he has a better beard than James Harden, but we won't be seeing it in the NBA this season. Raduljica had a strong FIBA World Cup with Serbia and will probably be one of the better big men in the Chinese league. Rotoworld.com

  • Hamady Ndiaye to join Nets at training camp
    The Nets have given a training-camp contract to C Hamady Ndiaye, who made 14 brief appearances with the Kings last season.

    Advice: The 7'0" center from Senegal was drafted No. 56 overall in 2010 and he's struggled to make a mark in the NBA. He's expected to battle for Brooklyn's third-string center job, behind Brook Lopez and Mason Plumlee, but won't be a fantasy asset even if he makes the squad. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea may be bought out by Timberwolves
    The Timberwolves hope to trade J.J. Barea but they're open to buying out his contract prior to the start of the season.

    Advice: The Wolves have 16 guaranteed contracts so they'll need to unload at least one player, and Barea seems like the odd-man out on Minnesota's rebuilt roster. They're doubtful to find any takers for his $4.5 million expiring contract, making a buyout much more likely. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George at Colts game on crutches
    Paul George (leg) was spotted at the Colts game on Monday night with crutches.

    Advice: He has been in the news for the wrong reasons based on some of his thoughtless comments involving Ray Rice. George is not expected to play this season and the Pacers will have a tough time getting production on the wing in the meantime. Rotoworld.com

  • Spurs looking for S&T of Aron Baynes
    The Spurs are open to a sign-and-trade deal for restricted free agent Aron Baynes.

    Advice: He's not getting quite as many headlines as fellow restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe, but Baynes does have some upside. He averaged 16.8 points per game with the Australian team at FIBA and would almost certainly have more value on another team. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Amundson works out for the Cavs
    Free agent Louis Amundson worked out for the Cavs last week.

    Advice: He could get a training camp invite as the Cavs attempt to add some depth to their front court. Amundson played in 19 games last season and won't be in the rotation to start the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Raduljica: My beard is better than Harden's
    Miroslav Raduljica said his beard is better than James Harden's after Serbia's loss to Team USA on Sunday.

    Advice: He played very well in the World Cup with 13 points per game, but he's expected to sign overseas. The Clippers waived Raduljica last month after being acquired from the Bucks in the Jared Dudley trade. Rotoworld.com

  • Andray Blatche officially out of Asian Games
    Andray Blatche has officially been barred from playing on the Philippines national team in the 2014 Asian Games.

    Advice: Blatche was allowed to play for the Philippines in the FIBA World Cup, but the rules of the Asian Games require a player to have three years of residency before representing a country on the court. He reportedly returned to the U.S. in early September, in the expectation that he'd negotiate a contract with the Heat, but so far there have been no reports of an agreement. Rotoworld.com

  • Miroslav Raduljica could end up in Spain
    Miroslav Raduljica has received interest from Real Madrid.

    Advice: The Clippers waived him after acquiring him in the Jared Dudley last month. Raduljica did play 9.7 minutes per game and started two contests with the Bucks last season, but that's primarily because the team was in disarray. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Taylor in Sweden for personal reasons
    Jeff Taylor (Achilles) is dealing with a personal matter in Sweden and he is not with the team.

    Advice: He did some workouts in Las Vegas Summer League and it sounds like he's going to be close to 100 percent. Coach Steve Clifford said Taylor is fine medically and he's just concerned with continuity with his new teammates. Taylor looked terrific before tearing his Achilles last year, but the addition of Lance Stephenson takes away some minutes on the wing. Rotoworld.com

  • Livingston ditches cast, hopeful for opener
    Shaun Livingston (right toe surgery) said he felt "great" after his cast was removed on Thursday and that he hopes to be ready for the season opener.

    Advice: Livingston was on a minimum 6-8 week timetable based on an August 15 report and this fits snugly into that outlook. Leandro Barbosa was brought on as insurance along with July acquisition Brandon Rush, so the Warriors have mobilized to play it safe, and along with this good news we haven't heard anything specific that would cause us to rule out his chances of playing on Opening Night.

  • Several teams interested in Ramon Sessions
    Several teams are interested in Ramon Sessions and he could be closing in on a deal, according to Basketball Insiders.

    Advice: The Rockets had previously shown interest in the 28-year-old, but seem to have moved on by acquiring Jason Terry via trade. Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists with the Bucks and Bobcats (now Hornets) during the 2013-14 season, but is more of a deep league fantasy option unless he can somehow find himself a starting job.

  • Paul George defends Ray Rice, then apologizes
    Paul George took to Twitter to defend recently suspended NFL running back Ray Rice and then quickly apologized after deleted the tweet.

    Advice: We'll give George credit for not claiming his account was hacked, but there is no defending his early morning tweet. "I don't condone hittin women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't trippin.. Lets keep it movin lol let that man play," George said via his Twitter account (@Yg_Trece). "If you in a relationship and a woman hit you first and attacking YOU.. Then you obviously ain't beatin HER. Homie made A bad choice! #StayUp." George later deleted the tweets and added an apology, but it's going to take some time (and probably more apologizing) until he lives this one down. Rotoworld.com
