• Tony Parker scored just six points on 3-of-5 shooting but one of them was a 20-foot game-winner to lead France over Serbia by the score of 76-75 on Wednesday.

    Parker added two assists and two steals as he’s at the stage of his career where teammates do the heavy lifting.  Still, he showed he has the clutch gene that has made him an NBA champion and that’s what the Spurs will be counting on him for this year, as well.  Nic Batum added 11 points, three assists and two steals, and Rudy Gobert had three points, six boards, one steal and two blocks in the win.

  • Naz Reid
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Naz Reid has signed a multi-year deal with the Wolves.

    Reid was originally expected to sign a two-way deal, and while it's possible that it is a two-year, two-way contract, it's still a nice achievement for the undrafted Reid. He averaged 12.5 points, 4.7 boards and 2.0 assists in just 18.3 mpg at Summer League and looked like one of the better big men at the Vegas circuit. The Wolves are obviously set at center in the long term, but Reid could definitely emerge as the backup with a little more seasoning.

  • Shane Larkin
    PG, International

    Shane Larkin has agreed to a 'lucrative' deal to return to Andalou Efes of Turkey.

    Larkin was reported to have some interest from guard-needy teams like Detroit, Orlando and OKC, but he'll stay in Europe to collect a big check and play in a starring role. Last season's BSL Finals MVP, Larkin could pop up again in free agency next summer.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaq Harrison has agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Bulls.

    Harrison was waived by the team a couple weeks ago but will head back to Chicago. There's not much room left at point guard, but Harrison emerged as a lengthy player who's capable of guarding opposing wings last season and that figures to be his role going forward. He had a standard-league finish for the depleted Bulls last season and is someone to remember for silly season if Chicago is tanking hard again.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet has inked a deal with the Chicago Bulls for two years worth $4.5 million according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Kornet is another stretch big that will fit into the Bulls' system similar to how Lauri Markkanen does. He is a 36-percent shooter from beyond the arc in his career and shoots at will, so he should be a nice role player for an improved Bulls team.

  • Josh Magette
    G, Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic have signed Josh Magette to a two-way contract according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo.

    Magette was last seen in the NBA two seasons ago with the Atlanta Hawks. After a strong showing in Summer League, Magette will have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot as an additional PG. He doesn't figure to hold any fantasy value if he is to make the squad.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have officially signed Frank Kaminsky to a two-year, $10 million deal.

    Kaminsky officially joins the young roster that GM James Jones and the Suns are building. He will have some competition backing up Dario Saric as the team is also planning to sign Cheick Diallo. Kaminsky will have some stand-alone value as a deep threat but he doesn't provide much value beyond shooting.

  • Stanton Kidd
    PF, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz have signed Stanton Kidd and William Howard.

    Kidd and Howard both participated in Summer League for the Jazz organization and impressed the team enough to be signed to fill out their roster. There is no guarantee that either will make the roster as it is unclear if their contracts are guaranteed. Kidd, 27, most recently played in Turkey while Howard, 25, most recently played in France.

  • Cheick Diallo
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Suns have signed Cheick Diallo to a two-year contract.

    Diallo has shown flashes in the NBA through his first three seasons with the Pelicans, Unfortunately, he has yet to see the opportunity needed to provide fantasy value as he has yet to surpass 14.0MPG in any season. The Suns could provide an avenue for Diallo to get more playing time off the bench similar to what we saw from Richaun Holmes last season. This is a terrific landing spot for the young big man.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, there are many around the league that believe that Chris Paul will start the season with the Thunder.

    The Thunder have been very busy this offseason as they have been able to inhale draft picks in return for All-Stars Russell Westbrook and Paul George. It was rumored that they would attempt to shop Paul to see if they could acquire even more assets. The team will look to have Paul mentor this team (specifically second-year player Shai-Gilgeous Alexander) as the market for Paul is not robust due to the $124M he is owed over the next three seasons. From a fantasy perspective, Paul may eat into SGA's overall value but they both will provide value come draft time.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    According to Shams Charania, the Pistons have claimed Christian Wood off of waivers.

    Wood will join a Pistons team that is led by Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond in the frontcourt. However, he will be able to compete for bench minutes with fellow bigs Markieff Morris and Thon Maker. The Pistons also drafted Sekou Doumbouya who is unlikely to contribute this season as he is only 18 years old.
