• Andre Iguodala
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Marc Stein is reporting that the Grizzlies are prepared to have Andre Iguodala on the roster into the season unless they receive a future first-round pick in any deal.

    The Clippers, Rockets, Nuggets, Lakers and Mavs have all been mentioned as suitors, but clearly nobody is willing to offer up a first-rounder yet. Considering the trades that the Clippers and Rockets have made they might need to get creative in any such deal, while the other teams might not find themselves in position to surrender a pick at the moment. There's also the notion that Memphis' leverage could rise during the season, when injuries and surprise performances could place more pressure on teams trying to acquire Iguodala. We'll see what happens.

  • John Wall
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said that John Wall “probably won’t play at all” next year as he is recovering from a torn Achilles.

    Nothing new here, Wall ruptured his left Achilles in a slip-and-fall incident at home and he is not expected to resume any basketball activity until at least February of 2020. The Wizards are not expected to be very competitive this year and it makes sense to take it slow with Wall’s rehab. Owners should only stash him in dynasty leagues.

  • Dedric Lawson
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Jabari Young of the Athletic is reporting that the Spurs are expected to sign forward Dedric Lawson to an Exhibit 10 deal.

    A 6’9″ forward out of Kansas, Lawson entered the 2019 draft following his junior season. In 36 games for the Jayhawks he averaged 19.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.1 block while making 39.3 percent of his three-pointers. He will join San Antonio after playing for the Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League where he recorded 6.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in four games.

  • Luke Maye
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have signed forward Luke Maye to an Exhibit 10 deal.

    A 6’8″ forward, Maye played his college ball at North Carolina, winning a national championship with the Tar Heels in 2017. He went undrafted last month after a senior season in which he was named the ACC’s Most Improved Player, averaging 14.9 points and 10.5 rebounds in 36 games. He struggled in the Summer League with the Bucks, averaging just 3.0 points on 18.8 percent shooting and he is expected to spend time with the Wisconsin Herd.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris stated that he didn't expect another offer after he verbally agreed to the Spurs' two-year, $20 million contract.

    We've seen players renege a contract offer before, so this isn't unprecedented, but it's still not a good look for the Knicks and Morris. He took more money and will join a weaker free agency class in 2020, but he joins an insanely crowded Knicks frontcourt which will now have to find playing time for Morris, Bobby Portis, Julius Randle, Taj Gibson and Mitchell Robinson.

    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.

    The Pistons have signed Todd Withers to an exhibit 10 contract.

    Withers will join the Pistons for training camp to compete for a roster spot. The best outcome for Withers is being signed to a two-way contract for this upcoming season. There is no fantasy impact from this signing.

    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.
