  • Amile Jefferson
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Amile Jefferson and the Orlando Magic have agreed to a one-year deal according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    The terms of this deal were not announced. The Magic had previously rescinded their qualifying offer to Jefferson but it now appears that that was to allow them to offer him something more concrete. He will slot in as the 14th man on this roster and shouldn't see much, if any, regular playing time this upcoming season.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have officially re-signed JaMychal Green.

    Last season Green became a vital part of the Clippers' bench, serving as a perfect compliment as a catch-and-shoot floor spacer to Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell's deadly pick-and-roll game. He'll figure to play an important role again this upcoming season, but won't provide much in fantasy value. That being said, he could emerge as a potential streaming option when forward minutes open up whenever Kawhi Leonard or Paul George rest.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura will play for Japan in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

    Fresh off of a Summer League Second Team selection, Hachimura will continue to flash his impressive scoring acumen as one of Japan's most talented players. Heading into his rookie season, Hachimura will have a very good shot at playing time on a Wizards team that has open minutes virtually everywhere across the roster.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson will not play for Canada in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

    This seems like a situation where Thompson is not participating to prepare for the grind of the NBA season in the fall. There was always some uncertainty with his participation but he was among the invitees to Team Canada training camp.

  • Cameron Reynolds
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have signed Cameron Reynolds to a two-way deal.

    Reynolds played in 19 games with the Wolves as a rookie after playing for five years at Tulane University. As he moves to the Bucks, expect him to continue to compete for the opportunity to be a backup point guard in the NBA. With the Bucks entering next season as title contenders, there is no room for Reynolds in the fantasy landscape.

  • Javonte Green
    F, Boston Celtics

    Javonte Green will join the Celtics on a partially guaranteed contract.

    After a strong Summer League performance where he averaged 10.8 ppg on 50% shooting, Green will get an opportunity to fight for a roster spot for the Celtics. He most recently played overseas in Germany.

  • Amida Brimah
    C, Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers have signed Amida Brimah to a one-year contract.

    The seven-foot big man, Bridah, has had a couple short stints with the Spurs but has yet to play in a game. Expect him to compete for a roster spot come training camp but there are no guarantees that he will make the final roster.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    The Celtics have officially re-signed Daniel Theis and Brad Wanamaker.

    The team rescinded their qualifying offer to Theis in a procedural move to maximize cap space, but he's back in Boston on a two-year, $10 million deal. He'll be battling for backup center minutes and his shooting ability (38.8 percent from deep last season on low volume) could set him apart from the rest of Boston's frontcourt options. As a player who can knock down threes and pick up some steals and blocks, there's deep-league potential for Theis should he end up pushing for something like 20 mpg. Wanamaker decided to pass on larger offers from European teams to return to the Celtics, where he may have a better shot at minutes with Terry Rozier out of the picture. Even so, he's not a fantasy target.

  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have made their signing of Thanasis Antetokounmpo official.

    Antetokounmpo is believed to be on a two-year deal that is fully guaranteed for the veteran's minimum. Antetokounmpo has just two NBA appearances to his name, both coming back in 2016 with the Knicks. It's unlikely that he'll play much, if at all, though at least he'll get to hang with his MVP little brother.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have announced the signing of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

    Hollis-Jefferson had a tough season in Brooklyn, suffering an offseason adductor strain and then falling out of the rotation when he was ready to play. The Raptors will take a one-year flier on a player that can capably defend multiple positions while bringing great energy, and he'll fit in with the team's defensive identity. RHJ is only a year removed from being a top-100 fantasy player but it's unlikely that he holds standard-league value in a reserve role for Toronto. Deep-league managers can consider Hollis-Jefferson a late-round flier.
