  • Kelly Oubre working out in MIami
    Kelly Oubre (knee) has been working out in Miami with John Wall.

    Advice: Oubre had PRP treatment in June and was cleared for workouts in July, so chances are he's close to 100 percent. He'll be going into his third year and could get more minutes, especially with how the Wizards had some success with their forward combo of Oubre and Otto Porter. Oubre still isn't a strong fantasy target. Today, 4:27 pm
  • Adreian Payne nearing deal with Magic
    Adreian Payne is close to an agreement with the Magic.

    Advice: He declined a $900K offer to play in China, so he looks like he'll try to get on an NBA roster at camp. Orlando is a good choice for Payne with only three centers ahead of him, but he probably wouldn't get minutes unless there are several injuries. Today, 3:27 pm

  • Jeff Withey gets one-year deal with Mavs
    Jeff Withey agreed to a one-year deal with the Mavs.

    Advice: The Mavs still haven't brought back Nerlens Noel yet, but Withey should still have a tough time making the Mavs roster. Withey did get one start last season and played in 51 games, averaging 2.9 points per effort. Today, 12:49 pm

  • Stan Van Gundy impressed by Luke Kennard
    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Luke Kennard exceeded expectations during summer league play.

    Advice: Kennard averaged 17.2 points per game in Orlando and knocked down 11 of his 23 3-point attempts. "He’s able to make plays off the dribble, that nice change of pace, and things I hadn’t seen a lot of," said Van Gundy. "He really has a great feel for the game, in addition to clearly his ability to shoot the ball." SVG was also impressed by Kennard's defense. "The thing I didn’t know that he showed me is he has the ability to move his feet defensively." However, to get minutes behind Avery Bradley next season, Kennard will have to beat out Langston Galloway and Reggie Bullock. Today, 10:01 am
  • Jordan Mickey finalizing 1-year deal w/ Miami
    Jordan Mickey is finalizing a guaranteed $1.5 million contract with Miami, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: The Celtics drafted Mickey out of LSU with the 33rd overall pick in the 2015 draft. He appeared in 25 games for Boston in 2016-17, but averaged just 1.5 points in 5.6 minutes of action. He did average 20.8 points and 8.8 rebounds in the 12 D-League games he played in. The Heat have plenty of depth in their crowded frontcourt, so although his guaranteed pact means it highly probable he'll make the final 15-man roster, it's unlikely Mickey cracks Miami's rotation next season.

  • Marc Gasol open to a trade out of Memphis?
    Marc Gasol suggested he might be open to a trade if the Grizzlies don't "keep growing."

    Advice: Gasol, speaking with a Spanish media outlet, said: "I’m very ambitious and I’ve wanted Memphis to be a great franchise. We’ve grown a lot the last 6-7 years, but we have to keep growing. If this is not lined up, maybe we may have to revisit things." The Grizz have Mike Conley and Gasol locked up, but the rest of the roster is unsettled. The health of Chandler Parsons, who inked a $94 million contract, is still a question mark and JaMychal Green remains unsigned. It will be difficult for Memphis to make the playoffs in a stacked Western Conference this season. Today, 7:48 am
  • Gerald Henderson undergoes hip surgery
    Gerald Henderson underwent hip surgery on Thursday.

    Advice: Henderson has been dealing with nagging hip pain for over five years and finally decided he wanted to have the hip operated on. According to his agent, Henderson will start rehab as early as next week in preparation for his return to the NBA. Henderson is still a free agent, so he'll have to convince a team he is healthy enough to play once he gets close to 100%. He won't have fantasy relevance anytime in the near future. Today, 6:51 am

  • K.J. McDaniels signing with Raptors
    K.J. McDaniels will sign with the Raptors.

    Advice: It's a partially-guaranteed deal and he's likely just a camp body. McDaniels was a highlight machine when he was on the 76ers, but he hasn't really got anything going since he was traded to the Rockets or while with the Nets. The second-round pick may have a tough time making the roster. Yesterday, 2:12 pm
  • Haslem comments on Dwyane Wade
    Udonis Haslem said his advice to Dwyane Wade is to take it "one day at a time."

    Advice: "We kind of understand the direction that Chicago is going in," Haslem said. "We kind of understand the direction that Dwyane wants to go in the last couple of years of his career. The business side of things sometimes doesn't always allow both sides to co-exist." Wade is expected to be bought out at some point during the season and he could wind up going back to the Heat. Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • Guerschon Yabusele says he's healthy
    Guerschon Yabusele (feet) said that he's fully recovered and ready to start informal practices on Monday.

    Advice: He had surgery in May to remove bone spurs from the top of both feet which kept him out of the Summer League, but he will be ready to go for the start of the 2017-18 season. The Celtics don't have great depth up front, but may just play more small ball to offset that. Yabusele is an intriguing project on both ends of the court, but expectations should be held in check right out of the gate. For now, he's just a stash in dynasty leagues. Yesterday, 7:55 am
  • Enes Kanter may not play in Mexico City game
    Enes Kanter may not be able to play in the Thunder's game vs. the Nets in Mexico City on Dec. 7.

    Advice: In case you missed it, Turkey canceled Kanter's passport over three months ago for his "political views" and speaking out against the government. He's currently only allowed to travel to Canada, but that will change after he receives a re-entry permit from the U.S. government -- he's already applied for one and is waiting to hear back. He has over three months to sort this out, so we're still expecting him to be available for the game in Mexico City. Yesterday, 7:13 am
  • Paul Millsap holds minicamp for Nuggets
    Paul Millsap hosted a minicamp for the Nuggets this week in Atlanta.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler, Malik Beasley, Jamal Murray, Will Barton, Jameer Nelson, Trey Lyles, Darrell Arthur, and Kenneth Faried were all present as the Nuggets look to get a head start on the season. It's a sign that Millsap is rejuvenated after signing a three-year, $90 million deal this summer and that he's ready to take on a leadership role in Denver. Millsap is coming off a down year, but he's joining a top-5 offense in the NBA and should thrive next to a pass-first Nikola Jokic. He's a bargain at his current fourth-round ADP. Yesterday, 6:42 am
  • Report: Mario Hezonja has 'tendon injury'
    Mario Hezonja suggested that he couldn't play for Croatia in the EuroBasket tournament due to a tendon injury.

    Advice: It's unclear which tendon is bothering Hezonja, but it sounds like a pre-existing injury. "For a long time I [had] a problem with the tendon," he said, according to a Google translation of a story from Sportske Novosti. "During the season it was already a problem. I thought it would pass, but it would not. That is why today [I am] in Los Angeles, where I can devote myself to preparations alone." Barring a pessimistic update, we'll assume Hezonja will be ready to go for training camp. Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Report: Dwyane Wade, Bulls headed to buyout?
    Dwyane Wade and the Bulls are "expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months," according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

    Advice: Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said in early July that he didn't expect Wade to be bought out this summer, but that doesn't rule out an early-season maneuver. Chicago is rebuilding after trading Jimmy Butler to the Wolves, and Zach LaVine is the franchise's SG of the future, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Wade hit free agency after a buyout in the coming months. Wednesday, 4:55 pm
  • Knicks not interested in dealing Porzingis
    The Knicks reportedly have no interest in including Kristaps Porzingis in a package for Kyrie Irving.

    Advice: "[Knicks president] Steve Mills and [Knicks general manager] Scott Perry on the record were very clear that Kristaps was part of the future,’’ an anonymous source to Newsweek said in reference to comments made last month by both executives. "In all the discussions since then — there were other rumors before that Cleveland would want Kristaps — and it didn’t seem that [the Knicks] were interested at all in a conversation." The Knicks don't appear to be very willing to put together an enticing offer for Irving, so Uncle Drew winding up in New York seems like an unlikely scenario. Wednesday, 8:08 am
  • Warriors sign Georges Niang to camp deal
    The Warriors have signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed deal.

    Advice: This is a camp invite for Niang, but he'll likely be spending most of the 2017-18 season with Golden State's G-League affiliate. Wednesday, 7:18 am

  • Report: Cavs targeting Kristaps Porzingis
    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kristaps Porzingis has emerged as a "primary target" for Cleveland as they consider possible trade scenarios involving Kyrie Irving.

    Advice: Wojnarowski notes the Knicks are not currently interested and would only consider such a trade if the Cavs were also willing to take back Joakim Noah's contract. However, Woj does state that New York may consider moving KP at some point if the relationship between Porzingis and the team doesn't improve. "There continues to be distance between Porzingis and the organization, and how the Knicks truly value Porzingis' future could become clearer once they're together to begin the season," writes Wojnarowski. Tuesday, 6:31 am
  • Porzingis scores 24 points against Poland
    Kristaps Porzingis scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in Latvia's win over Poland on Friday.

    Advice: This was a "friendly preparation game" for both national teams as they get ready for Eurobasket later this month. Unsurprisingly, Porzingis dominated the action on both ends of the floor, as he also added two blocks and two steals. KP has a chance to establish himself as an elite fantasy force next season, and will likely be selected in the top-20 of most drafts. Saturday, 8:15 am
  • Kennard has to beat out Galloway and Bullock
    Luke Kennard would have to beat out both Langston Galloway and Reggie Bullock to get minutes to start the season, according to Pistons beat writer Keith Langlois.

    Advice: While the Pistons did lose Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the addition of Avery Bradley should absorb basically the same amount of playing time at shooting guard. Kennard had some rough stretches on defense in summer league, so he will have to really thrive in camp to get minutes out of the gate. Friday, 5:38 pm
  • Knicks pick up team option on Porzingis
    The Knicks officially picked up the 2018-19 team option on Kristaps Porzingis' contract.

    Advice: This was a mere formality for New York, as Porzingis has been remarkably productive over his first years in the NBA. Porzingis will make $5.7 million in 2018-19. Next summer, the Knicks will be able to sign KP to an extension worth up to $156 million over five years. Last season, he averaged 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers. If the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, KP would be asked to shoulder more of the offensive load and would see his stats increase. Friday, 7:22 am
