    As Dragan Bender continues to explore the NBA market, the Cavs and the Raptors are among the teams that have inquired about the former lottery pick.

    The European market also remains an option for the Croatian forward as CSKA Moscow and Fenerbache are monitoring his situation. Bender is still only 21 years old and teams around the NBA could still take a chance on him after what has been a disappointing NBA career so far with averages of 5.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in 131 career games.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo posted 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, three dimes, three 3s and two steals in Friday's 94-64 win over China.

    Okobo has played reasonably well in the 2019 Summer League. With one NBA season under his belt, the Frenchman should have a solid footing as the third PG in the Suns' deptch chart behind Ricky Rubio and Tyler Johnson (at times).

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.

    Gina Mizell has reported that Kelly Oubre Jr. has agreed to ink a two-year, $30 million deal with the Suns.

    This makes sense as Oubre truly came to his own when he moved to Phoenix last season. He's a versatile forward who does a bit of everything, making him a sneaky pick in the middle-to-late rounds of most drafts.

  • Kyle Korver
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Keith Pompey of the Phily Inquirer is reporting that the Sixers are one of the frontrunners to sign Kyle Korver after he becomes an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.

    The team had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the Cavaliers for Korver last summer, while they were also interested in acquiring him before the Cavs traded him to the Jazz last November. Getting Korver would enable the Sixers to bring back a fan favorite who is one of the league’s top three-point shooters. The 16-year veteran shot 39.7 percent on three-pointers last season with the Cavs and the Jazz, while he has shot 42.9 percent from three-point range through 1,174 career games. Korver would most likely come off the bench as Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Joel Embiid are the expected starters. The Sixers don’t have a proven knockdown three-point shooter on Korver’s level and he would be able to fill that hole if he chooses to return to Philadelphia.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo scored 15 points with three treys and one steal on 6-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Okobo added four turnovers, four fouls and zero assists as the starting point guard for the Suns. It was a forgettable performance for 31st pick in the 2018 NBA draft. With Ricky Rubio and Ty Jerome in town now, Okobo is going to be bumped back into a deep-reserve role for the Suns next season.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio is now officially a Sun after the team announced his signing on Monday.

    Rubio is in a great situation as the expected starting point guard of a young Suns squad that likes to run. He's in for a bounce-back season if he can avoid the minor injuries that set him back in his 2018-19 campaign.

  • Kyle Korver
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have waived Kyle Korver.

    It was only a matter of time before the team waived Korver. They're a young team and still right in the middle of a rebuild project so Korver will likely want to play for a contender. The Lakers, Sixers and Bucks were all reported to have interest in the 38-year old sharpshooter.

  • Jared Harper
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Jared Harper played well on Sunday against the Knicks as he put up 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

    Harper went undrafted out of Auburn and really controlled the pace of this game. He added four assists and two steals to the box score. Rayvonte Rice chipped in 19 points on five 3-pointers.

  • James Palmer
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    James Palmer led the way for the Suns on Sunday as he put up 23 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a 105-100 win over the Knicks.

    He knocked down four triples and added four rebounds to the box score. Palmer went undrafted out of Nebraska and will have to remain on top of his game to ink a two-way contract with an NBA team.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have officially completed their offseason batch of trades, which means that Dario Saric, Aron Baynes, Cam Johnson and Ty Jerome are now Suns.

    Johnson and Jerome have been ruled out of Summer League already since they haven't been able to practice with the team yet. Baynes came over in a deal with the Celtics and will play backup minutes behind Deandre Ayton. Saric is the most interesting of the bunch and was traded on draft night. He'll have the chance to start at power forward but seems likely to split his minutes with guys like Mikal Bridges and Kelly Oubre Jr., depending on how the rotation shakes out. Saric was only a 14-team value last season but could get back into standard-league territory, so don't forget about him in the later rounds of your drafts.

  • Cameron Johnson
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have announced that first-round picks Cam Johnson and Ty Jerome will not play at Summer League.

    It is a team decision that isn't injury-related. Both Johnson and Jerome were acquired via draft-night trade, and with those deals not able to be made official until Saturday the two were not able to practice with their teammates. It's disappointing that neither player will take the floor in Vegas and we'll now have to keep tabs on them in training camp.

  • Jawun Evans
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jawun Evans finished with seven points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

    Evans was waived by the Suns last season and the Thunder managed to scoop him up. Outside of some extra backcourt depth he doesn't have much of a role, even if they do trade Russell Westbrook.

  • Jevon Carter
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Jevon Carter will be traded to the Suns when the personnel moratorium is lifted.

    Carter was thought to be NBA-ready coming out of the draft but didn't really impress in his 39 games with the Grizzlies last season, who swap him out for the higher upside of De'Anthony Melton in this deal. In Phoenix, Carter will have to split time with Ty Jerome and Elie Okobo behind Ricky Rubio, and while his defensive tenacity can give him a leg up it's not a situation that will lead to fantasy value.

  • Kyle Korver
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Kyle Korver, who will be traded from Memphis to Phoenix, will be bought out by the Suns, with Adrian Wojnarowski reporting that the Lakers, Sixers and Bucks are the frontrunners to sign him on the open market.

    All three of those teams are championship hopefuls, so it's no surprise that they'd be interested in adding a lethal shooter like Korver on a cheap deal, even if his overall utility has waned. There won't be a ton of fantasy appeal here as threes have become bountiful across the league, but Korver should be good for his usual production.

  • Jamal Crawford
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    The Heat are among the teams expressing an interest in veteran shooting guard Jamal Crawford, according to veteran NBA insider Brandon Robinson.

    Crawford turned 39 in March but he proved that he can still make an impact appearing in 64 games with the Suns and averaging 7.9 points and 3.6 assists. Along with the Heat, the Sixers, the Thunder and the Lakers are interested in Crawford, but he is more likely to be signed later in the summer or just ahead of training camp by a team looking for a veteran scorer and ballhandler in reserve.
