Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley said that his team is "not looking to trade Rudy Gay."

Gay's name has been brought up as a speculative trade target, but Heisley continues to insist that his small forward is a part of the future in Memphis. "We're not shopping him around. period," he said. "Right now, Rudy is part of the future of this team." The "right now" comment from Heisley suggests Gay may not be untouchable, but the Grizzlies are not actively pursuing a deal to send him elsewhere.

Dion Waiters has been studying video of Dwyane Wade to learn how he adapted to playing alongside LeBron James.

"With a guy like [LeBron], he can open up the floor for you and give you a lot of opportunities," Waiters said. "When I get the opportunity to get the ball, I've got to destroy my opponent. The rest of the floor is going to be so wide open that, once I get by him, the rest of it should be easy." Waiters has a good chance to improve upon his career 42.4 percent shooting with LeBron guiding the offense, but it's also likely that his usage rate will take a dive from 26.9 percent last season.

Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) has not yet been cleared for five-on-five workouts with contact, according to 76ers GM Sam Hinkie.

Carter-Williams is "working out hard" and expects to be healthy for training camp, but for now he faces medical restrictions. He missed 12 games last season but he won Rookie of the Year after averaging 16.7 points, 0.8 threes, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. If he can stay healthy he should be a reliable top-50 fantasy option, especially in leagues which don't penalize turnovers.

Carlos Delfino's surgically-repaired foot is not healing properly, and the Clippers may waive him via the "stretch provision."

Delfino would be a useful rotation player if healthy, but as things stand the Clippers can reduce his salary-cap amount over several years and thereby clear space for one or two minimum-salary free agents (Chris Douglas-Roberts and Ekpe Udoh have been mentioned as possible targets). Delfino has already had two surgeries on his foot and it sounds like his 2014-15 season is in jeopardy.

The Clippers have agreed to trade Jared Dudley and a future first-round pick to the Bucks, in exchange for Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica.

Dudley is owed $8.5 million over the next two seasons, whereas Delfino and Raduljica have a combined $4.8 million in guaranteed salary left on their deals, so the Clippers used their first-round draft pick to entice Milwaukee to take on the extra money. Dudley is a proficient 3-point shooter but he faces stiff competition for playing time from guys like Jabari Parker, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. Fantasy owners can safely ignore him on draft day.

The Cavaliers are still trying to acquire Timofey Mozgov, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

As the Cavs continue their search for a center to backup Anderson Varejao, their search is focused on the Nuggets' Mozgov and Kosta Koufos of the Memphis Grizzlies. Windhorst adds that the Cavs have been trying to acquire Mozgov for the last six to eight weeks while the Grizzlies are reluctant to part with Koufos due to Marc Gasol's injury last season. Mozgov wouldn't have much fantasy value in Cleveland, but a trade could open up more minutes for JaVale McGee and J.J. Hickson in Denver.

Ryan Anderson said in a recent interview that his "recovery's been really smooth," and he expects to be 100 percent healthy by the start of training camp.

"I can do everything with the guys as far as shooting workouts, drills, weights and conditioning," Anderson said. "I just can’t play five-on-five or (even) one-on-one basketball... I have a few more weeks, so training camp I’ll be ready to go all out." Before going down last season Anderson was providing solid value, averaging 19.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.0 three-pointers a game. He will look to return to form this upcoming season, and will provide elite 3-point shooting to fantasy squads.

The Rockets are trying to acquire Ramon Sessions in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks.

It would be a terrific fit for the Rockets. Sessions is among the league leaders in drives per 48 minutes and the Rockets really need a backup point guard. He would likely come off the bench behind Pat Beverley while Sessions would hurt the chances of guys like Isaiah Canaan, Troy Daniels and Nick Johnson. This move would hurt Beverley's upside.

Isaiah Thomas (left wrist) said the first day of rehab was going great.

"[I'm] about to get this right hand better on the court, the season is almost here," Thomas said on his Twitter account. The left-hander's move to the Suns figures to hurt his playing time with the Suns expected to have Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. IT3 has been very effective from a per-minute standpoint, so he's still worth drafting later in fantasy drafts.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski could alternate Kyrie Irving and Derrick Rose as his starting point guards for the FIBA World Cup.

Irving will start in Tuesday's final exhibition vs. Slovenia. Rose was expected to be ahead of Irving, but Kyrie has been absolutely ridiculous during Team USA's exhibition run. The team also sat Rose out for a couple games, so bringing him off the bench could keep his minutes in check. They'll look to dominate in Group C vs. Turkey, New Zealand, Dominican Republic and Ukraine when the tournament starts on Aug. 30.

Free agent Emeka Okafor isn't expected to sign with a team until mid-season because he's still recovering from a herniated disc in his back.

Okafor's camp has been contacted by "roughly half the league," according to ESPN's Marc Stein, including the Cavaliers and the Heat. The best news here might be that Okafor's awful injury won't be career-ending, and the 31-year-old should still have a few productive years in the tank.

The Cavs, Wolves and Sixers have completed the Kevin Love trade.

We all know the details and the only difference is that the Wolves will get a $6.3 million trade exception, not the $4 million reported yesterday. In case you weren't around the past month, the Cavs get Kevin Love; the Wolves get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young and that aforementioned trade exception; and the Sixers get Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved and a 2015 first-round pick.
