• Extension contracts stall
    Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that contract extensions between Hield and the Pacers have stalled, so Indiana has begun trade conversations.

    Advice: Hield started 73 of 80 games for Indiana last season, averaging 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.0 minutes per game. He shot 42.5 percent from deep, the second-highest mark of his career. However, the Pacers added Bruce Brown, Jarace Walker and Obi Toppin to their wing group this offseason, and it appears Hield is the odd man out. Hield has one year remaining on the four-year, $94 million extension he signed with the Kings in 2019. Rotowire.com Wednesday, 3:39 pm

  • Questionable for training camp
    Alvarado suffered an ankle sprain during a workout over the weekend, putting his training camp availability at risk, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Alvarado was beginning to ramp up for the start of training camp after he missed the FIBA World Cup due to a lower leg injury he suffered at the end of the 2022-23 season, but he suffered an ankle sprain during a workout. At this point, it is unclear whether Alvarado will be available for training camp or the Pelicans' first preseason game on Oct. 10. Rotowire.com Sunday, 4:09 pm

The Villanova product appeared in 10 games for the Knicks in 2021-22 and 11 games in 2022-23, but he's still a long shot to make New York's Opening Night roster this season.

  • Being shopped by Rockets
    The Rockets are looking to trade Porter (personal) after he was arrested and charged with assault earlier this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: With Porter facing potential legal punishment alongside league discipline following his arrest, the Rockets are attempting to move on from the 22-year-old. Considering Porter has experienced multiple off-the-court issues during the last five years, teams could feel uneasy about acquiring him, making him a possible cut candidate if the Rockets can't find any takers.

    Advice: Forrest spent the 2022-23 campaign with the Hawks on a two-way deal, averaging 2.3 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 12.0 minutes per game across 23 NBA appearances (three starts). The undrafted point guard out of Florida State was better during limited action in the G League, averaging 16.7 points, 6.6 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 31.0 minutes per game across seven appearances (six starts). Forrest figures to handle a similar role in 2023-24. Rotowire.com Tuesday, 12:26 pm
