• Parts ways with Spurs
    The Spurs and Bullock agreed to a contract buyout Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Bullock's buyout doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the 32-year-old forward doesn't fit the Spurs' rebuilding timeline. Bullock will enter the 2023-24 season as a free agent who provides quality perimeter defense and above-average outside shooting. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 7:10 am
  • Suffers ankle injury
    Green sprained his left ankle earlier this week and is expected to be out for 3-6 weeks, Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report reports.

    Advice: Green's ankle injury will likely keep him out for the entire preseason and could cause him to miss the Warriors' season opener on Oct. 24 against the Suns. Kevon Looney will likely start at center in his absence. With the Warriors thin in the frontcourt, Dario Saric, Trayce Jackson-Davis and Jonathan Kuminga could also receive increased minutes.

  • Foregoes surgery
    Tatum opted not to undergo surgery on his left wrist and instead got a cortisone shot earlier this offseason, and is now feeling "really good," Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com reports.

    Advice: Tatum had been dealing with a left wrist injury throughout last postseason but appears to have fully recovered without surgery heading into the 2023-24 season. The superstar forward could see more primary ball-handling duties this year due to the departure of Marcus Smart. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 3:20 am
  • Expected to sign with Sacramento
    Nowell is expected to sign with the Kings on Friday, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Advice: The details of the deal were not disclosed. Last season, his fourth in Minnesota, Nowell averaged career highs in points (10.8), rebounds (2.6) and minutes played (19.3) per game. He'll compete for a depth spot in Sacramento with Davion Mitchell and Chris Duarte. Rotowire.com Friday, 7:59 am
  • Returning to Charlotte
    Maledon agreed to a two-way contract with the Hornets on Friday, Rod Boone of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    Advice: Maledon signed a two-way contract with the Hornets last October after being waived by the Rockets. He went on to appear in 44 NBA games, averaging 6.7 points, 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds. He excelled down the stretch, posting 14.8 points, 9.5 assists, 5.2 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks across the final six regular-season games (all starts). Those numbers came with numerous regulars sidelined, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect that type of production to start 2023-24. Maledon will open the season as a reserve behind LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier and is eligible to play in only 50 NBA games on his current deal. Rotowire.com Friday, 7:19 am

    Advice: Sumner missed the entire 2021-22 campaign due to an Achilles tear but made 53 appearances, including 12 starts, for Brooklyn last season. In 2022-23, he averaged 7.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 13.9 minutes on 46.1/35.6/91/7 shooting splits. Sumner will likely compete for the backup point guard role behind LaMelo Ball (ankle). Rotowire.com Friday, 6:53 am
  • Joining Atlanta for training camp
    The Hawks signed Wallace to a training camp deal Friday, Kevin Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.

In 2022-23, he averaged 14.6 points, 4.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 32.6 minutes across 30 games for the Ontario Clippers.

  • Healthy ahead of camp
    Coach Will Hardy said Friday that Sensabaugh (knee) is healthy and ready for training camp, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Sensabaugh spent the summer recovering from left knee surgery that he underwent in March. While he was unable to participate in Summer League action, he's healthy for the start of training camp this year. The 19-year-old will attempt to make an impact for the Jazz during preseason play but seems unlikely to have a significant role for the team to begin the regular season. Rotowire.com Friday, 2:00 am
