    • The Heat signed G/F Shannon Brown on a one-year, $1.3 million deal.
      Advice: It sounds like a guaranteed deal and he should make the team. Miami has some serious concerns on the wing with the oft-injured trio of Dwyane Wade, Danny Granger and Luol Deng expected to lead the way. Brown will compete with Shawne Williams, Reggie Williams and rookie James Ennis for playing time. He's not worth drafting in almost any format.

    • Anthony Bennett is expected to join Shabazz Muhammad and Ronny Turiaf in California next week.
      Advice: Shabazz and Ronny both went to school in California and they're expected to work out with an unconventional trainer. Fitness is the paramount concern for Bennett heading into the season, but at least he showed he can play 30 minutes in a game like he did in Las Vegas. He's a late-round lottery ticket in deeper leagues.

    • Anthony Bennett had surgery in May to correct his sleep apnea, involving the removal of his tonsils and adenoids.
      Advice: Bennett also suffers from asthma, but he already feels he has "a lot more room to breathe" since the operation. His surgically-repaired shoulder has fully recovered and he looked noticeably slimmer at Summer League, so the Wolves are optimistic that he can meaningfully contribute off the bench following a disastrous rookie campaign. As long as Thaddeus Young is healthy, fantasy owners should watch Bennett's progression from a distance.

    • Anthony Bennett has been traded to the Wolves.
      Advice: The Wolves did an outstanding job to keep Bennett and only parted with Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute instead. Bennett's rookie season was catastrophic, but he looked good in Las Vegas and was able to play big minutes. Unfortunately, the addition of Thaddeus Young pushes Bennett out of the conversation as a late-round target in standard leagues.

    • Anthony Bennett is expected to stay with the Wolves and not be traded to the Sixers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
      Advice: The deal could go down as soon as Saturday, and Bennett will have a terrific chance for regular minutes with his new team. He looked good at Las Vegas Summer League and was capable of playing 30 minutes, so he's worked himself onto the radar in fantasy leagues. Although, Thaddeus Young going to the Wolves severely hurts his upside.

    • Anthony Bennett may not be traded to the 76ers in a trade for Thaddeus Young, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune.
      Advice: Zgoda added in a following tweet that he had no idea where the information came from. The Philadelphia Inquirer broke the news of a Bennett-Young deal back on Aug. 8, so we'll probably get more info on this in a few days when Andrew Wiggins is eligible to be traded. For what it's worth, teams are not going to flat-out say they're trading players.

    • Anthony Bennett isn't worrying about which team he plays for in 2014-15.
      Advice: With a trade that will send him to Philadelphia all but complete, Bennett is concentrating on the things he can control rather than the things he can't. "I'm just a young man just ready to work," Bennett said. "Wherever I end up, doesn't really matter to me. I just want to play the game of basketball." After a rookie season during which he averaged 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds per game, a change of scenery should help turn the 2013 No. 1 overall pick into a viable asset in most fantasy leagues leagues.

    • Anthony Bennett admitted that he struggled through his rookie campaign, but is looking to start anew this upcoming season.
      Advice: "I can fight through adversity," Bennett said. "It wasn't the best of seasons for me. I will admit that. Fighting the injuries and just the way things were, just never really made me give up. I always just stayed in the gym." Bennett was atrocious during his first year, averaging a meager 4.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, on 35.6 percent shooting from the field. However, if he is indeed traded to the 76ers, he will get all the opportunity he can handle in an up-tempo offense devoid of a go-to scorer. Bennett figures to be a late-round flier in standard leagues.

    • Jason Richardson (knee) has been training in Denver this summer but it's uncertain when or if he'll play this season.
      Advice: "I know he's focused on getting ready for camp," said 76ers GM Sam Hinkie. "I don't know exactly how that will go. We'll see when he gets closer." J-Rich opted into a $6.6 million player option for 2014-15 but he's unlikely to have a significant on-court role even if his knee allows him to get back on the court.
