    • Team USA director Jerry Colangelo said that DeMarcus Cousins made "tremendous strides" during the FIBA World Cup.
      Advice: "You can use all the superlatives you want and apply them to DeMarcus," Colangelo said. "In the locker room after our [gold-medal] win over Serbia ... I told him, `The past is the past. This is the beginning of your career. Take everything you learned back to Sacramento." Cousins improved his conditioning to make Team USA and his improved maturity makes him an even more appealing first-round pick in fantasy drafts this season.

    • DeMarcus Cousins shot 70.2 percent from the field during his FIBA World Cup.
      Advice: He was terrific off the bench and showed some maturity this summer. Cousins caught an elbow to the throat against Lithuania on Thursday, but he was able to restrain himself from throwing a punch. He just turned 24 last month and still has plenty of room to improve. DMC is worth a look at the end of the first round.

    • DeMarcus Cousins replied with a witty remark when he was asked if he knew where Slovenia is on a map.
      Advice: A European journalist asked Cousins, "do you know where Slovenia is?" Cousins replied, "no, do you know where Alabama is?" This obviously has nothing to do with basketball, but it's still in the running for funniest quote of the offseason. Boogie will be a borderline first-round pick in fantasy leagues.

    • Carl Landry said recently that he's still not 100 percent recovered from the torn meniscus that ended his 2013-14 season.
      Advice: "That's what I'm going through right now - just being patient, but still trying to do the right things on the court," Landry said. "I would say that I'm almost [100 percent healthy] - I'm very close." He'll be scraping off the rust during training camp, assuming he can fully participate, and there's no reason to touch him in fantasy leagues with Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Eric Moreland all crowded around the PF position.

    • Brandon Jennings said that the 2013-14 season was his "worst year" in the NBA, but he's been in the gym for the past few weeks and is eager for a fresh start under coach Stan Van Gundy.
      Advice: "The fractured jaw, losing weight, not being able to play preseason, missing games," Jennings said, listing reasons for his down year. "Then getting into a rhythm, then Mo [Cheeks] was fired and I'm back down again. It was just the worst season ever, a roller coaster." Jennings gave the requisite offseason report that he's bulked up (reportedly adding 25 pounds), and he's prepared to earn his starter's minutes ahead of D.J. Augustin and Will Bynum.
