• Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol has exercised his $25.6 million player option for next season and will remain with the Raptors.

    Gasol seemed unlikely to test the open market at his age, and given the success of the core of Toronto's roster it's a good fit for him to stay with a competitive team as well. It's been speculated that Toronto's other players will decide to stay or go based on Kawhi Leonard's decision, so if you really want to read into this then you can take that angle — though between his age and the number of available centers, this seemed like a safe bet either way. Gasol made a lot of sacrifices upon joining the Raptors and finished the year with a top-100 stretch, but we'll need to wait on Kawhi before declaring Gasol a late-middle round option or an early-round guy once again.

    Thaddeus Young will be added to the Team USA training camp.

    Young joins Marcus Smart on Monday as two late additions to the training camp roster after six players withdrew from camp to focus on the upcoming NBA season. Although neither of these two are superstars, both are very solid veterans who can impact the game on both ends of the court. There may be more additions to the training camp roster to come.

  • Tim Duncan
    PF-C, San Antonio Spurs

    Tim Duncan will join Gregg Popovich's coaching staff as an assistant with the Spurs.

    Duncan played all 19 of his NBA seasons under Popovich. He became one of the league's most dominant big-men of all-time. In regards to the hiring, Popovich joked "It is only fitting, after I served loyally for 19 years as Tim Duncan’s assistant, that he returns the favor." The NBA will welcome having Duncan back in the league.

  • Darius Miller
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have officially re-signed Darius Miller to a two-year deal.

    Miller will be playing behind a plethora of young assets at the Pelicans' disposal. Given that the team has entered a full-blown youth movement, it is unlikely that he will earn enough meaningful minutes to make a splash in fantasy in 2019-20.

  • Bonzie Colson
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have waived Bonzie Colson.

    Colson only played 98 minutes during his rookie season, but when he played he was a DFS favorite. Colson could play multiple positions and is young enough where a few teams would likely be interested in taking a flier on him.

  • Kostas Antetokounmpo
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kostas Antetokounmpo has signed a two-way deal with the Lakers on Sunday.

    The Mavericks waived Antetokounmpo last week and most knew the younger brother of last season's MVP would not last long before another team took a shot on him. He is still a developmental player, but he should have ample opportunity playing for the Lakers' G-League team, the South Bay Lakers.
