Patrick Beverley (calf) and Lou Williams (rest) sat out of Thursday's preseason game with the Mavs.
No need for the Clippers, who figure to do lots of load managing, to force either of their vets through a meaningless game. Beverley's calf injury is suspected to be minor but we'll keep an eye on it as the season approaches.

Patrick Beverley has stated reducing the number of technical fouls as one of his goals for the upcoming season.
The 31-year-old journeyman sees the development as a sign of his maturity. Beverley had the fifth-most technical fouls in the league with 14 last season, just two away from triggering an automatic suspension. Already a safe bet to miss games throughout the year, any hint that he's dedicated to staying on the court when he actually is healthy is a good sign. Beverley is a solid, if low upside option in the late rounds.

Patrick Beverley tweaked his calf in Sunday's preseason win, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 20 minutes before exiting.
No word on the severity of Beverley's injury just yet but calf issues can linger, so we would expect him to get a couple days off in advance of the regular season. Any missed time would create more playing time for Landry Shamet and Terance Mann, which is something to keep in mind in deeper drafts.

Doc Rivers said that he's considering starting Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams in certain matchups and that the fifth starter in those cases would be a "pick 'em" situation.
The main candidates in that configuration, when both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are playing, are Patrick Beverley or Landry Shamet at point guard or Moe Harkless at power forward. The Clippers, when healthy, have assembled one of the most versatile teams in the league so it wouldn't be surprising if Rivers leveraged that to get the most out of his team on any given night.

Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports that Landry Shamet has been preparing to play some point guard this season.
The Clippers are without a traditional point guard and Shamet may be one of the players that needs to take on additional ball-handling responsibilities. How he fares as a distributor could have major effects on his playing time, too — Buha notes that Shamet could start over Patrick Beverley. It's worth noting that Beverley got off to a very slow start last season and only found his groove upon starting in small, multi-guard lineups, which won't be possible given LA's summer acquisitions. His stock is trending down while Shamet, assuming he is in line for a larger role, is becoming more attractive as a late-round pick in standard leagues.

The Clippers have made their re-signing of Patrick Beverley official.
Beverley is back on a three-year, $40 million deal and should be the full-time starting point guard now that the Clippers have dealt Shai Gilgeous-Alexander away. It was a slow start to the season last year for Beverley, but he found his footing when the Clips starting using him in three-guard lineups. They certainly won't need to do that again given their new wing players, but Beverley's looking like a solid top-100 guy after a strong top-75 finish over the final two months of last season.

Patrick Beverley has reached an agreement on a three-year, $40 million deal to remain with the Clippers.
Beverley is a wonderful cultural fit for a Clippers team that typically ends up as more than the sum of its parts. He drew serious interest around the league but will ultimately re-up with the Clippers. It's not the best spot for his fantasy value with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Lou Williams and Landry Shamet all occupying heavy backcourt roles, but Beverley's stat set should support standard-league value. And yes, the Clippers still have space available for a max contract.

The Mavs and Patrick Beverley did not have their scheduled meeting on Sunday, per Brad Townsend of the Dallas News.
The Mavs got bogged down in the Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade that may or may not be happening, so they were unable to loop up for a chat with Beverley. Townsend adds that things don't sound as promising with Beverley as they did this time yesterday, so that's not great news for the Mavs. Beverley is going to have plenty of suitors on the open market and certainly does not need to wait for a meeting with Dallas if he doesn't want to.

Andrew Greif reports that the Clippers have reached out to the reps of both Marcus Morris and Patrick Beverley.
Morris makes sense for the Clippers due to his hard-nosed, no-nonsense desire to win – something that's aligned with the culture that the Clippers want to establish. Beverley is already a hot commodity right now and the Clippers are just doing their due diligence and keeping their options open, should they fail to land any big-name free agents.

Sean Deveney reports that the Mavs and Bulls have reached out to Patrick Beverley to set up meetings.
Beverley, who will be in LA meeting with the Lakers on Sunday, appears to have a strong market in free agency. His strong perimeter defense, passing ability and 3-point shooting make for an excellent role-player package for any NBA team.

The Lakers have reached out to Patrick Beverley's reps and hope to sign him when free agency gets underway on July 1st.
The Lakers need to fill a void at the point guard position after trading Lonzo Ball as part of the package that landed them Anthony Davis. Beverley should provide solid defense, dimes and some 3-point shooting as a role-player on the Lakers should he decide to sign there.

Patrick Beverley is reportedly looking for a three-year deal worth over $40 million in free agency.
All told, that's not unreasonable for an elite defender who can knock down threes and keep the offense humming. Beverley is receiving interest from the Bulls, Mavs, Lakers and Clippers, though more teams could get involved once the top point guards are off the market. Beverley's a fairly safe bet to return late-middle round fantasy value as long as he gets the proper playing time.

Per sources of The Dallas Morning News, the Mavs and Patrick Beverley regard on another as a "perfect fit."
Beverley, who is also in high demand with the Lakers and Sixers, is said to have plans to meet with the Mavs near the start of free agency, though Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reported that a meeting hasn't been scheduled yet. Even after the Mavs extend Kristaps Porzingis, they'll have a ton of money left to round out their roster. Beverley will be a very busy man when free agency opens up next week.

According to Brad Townsend, Patrick Beverley plans to meet with the Mavs, though a meeting has not been scheduled.
He's also planning to meet with other teams, as we've heard before. Beverley appears to be in-demand this summer and he should produce similar stats to what he's put up over the last few seasons regardless of his landing spot. Whether he's with a bad team like the Bulls, a middling team like the Mavs or a potential contender like the Lakers, one would think he'll be signing in a spot where he'll be starting.

Patrick Beverley acknowledged that he's heard the rumblings that the Lakers have interest in him by replying to a comment on twitter with, "That's what I heard. Shit real huh."
In another tidbit from silly season, we have confirmation of a player showing he's listening to the rumblings out there as well. Beverley would make perfect sense for the Lakers especially if they landed a Jimmy Butler or Kyrie Irving in free agency. PBev will have quite a few suitors this summer and it will be interesting to see what he ultimately decides on doing.
