Randy Wittman remains uncertain when John Wall (knee) will return.

Wittman seemed to rule out (for now) the notion that Wall will miss the season, telling beat writer Craig Stouffer that "I'm not looking at it like that." However, we're now 10 weeks after the injury, and the timetable remains very murky. A.J. Price continues to start in Wall's absence, but has cooled off after a solid start. Price is now averaging 9.3 points, 5.1 assists and 1.6 3s for the season.

The Kings have agreed to terms with Ramon Sessions on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

He should have signed long ago and the Kings were somehow able to sign him and didn't spend too much with their bi-annual exception. He'll likely compete in a backup role with Ray McCallum, who didn't shoot the ball well despite his heavy dose of minutes late in the season. It also wouldn't be a shock to see Sessions unseat Darren Collison at some point. He's still not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to a lower upside and a lower usage rate next to Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. McCallum can be removed from your standard-league draft board while Collison has some added risk in the later rounds.

Taj Gibson tweeted on Friday night that he likes coming off the bench.

There was a report that he likes coming off the bench earlier this week, which has been a big storyline all offseason. Gibson was probably going to start in Chicago after his breakout season in 2013-14, but the addition of Pau Gasol put the kibosh on that idea. He will probably have less fantasy value this year compared to last year.

Updating a previous report, the Suns have no interest in an Eric Bledsoe sign-and-trade deal with Minnesota, according to sources.

The purported deal didn't make much sense, as the Timberwolves would simply be unloading bad contracts onto Phoenix in exchange for an all-star caliber player. With the Suns reportedly not interested in Ricky Rubio, and Andrew Wiggins being untouchable, there just isn't a plausible deal that could take place. It seems the most likely scenario is Eric Bledsoe accepting the Suns' qualifying offer, and becoming an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. If he can remain healthy, Bledsoe could be a steal in the early-mid rounds of your draft as he looks to prove he’s worth the max-deal he is seeking.

Andrew Bogut has been taking full contact during the Warriors open gym scrimmages this month, and his fractured rib that sidelined him for the end of the 2013-14 season has fully healed.

"My body feels great," said Bogut, who returned to working out in mid-June after his fractured rib healed. "All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a p*** and avoid contact at all costs.. I’ll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I’ll get a knock." Bogut was impressive while on the court last season, averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game, however he is a huge injury risk as he only made it through 67 games. The last (and only) time Bogut made it through a full season was in 2006, so he's only worth a gamble in the very late rounds of your draft.

The Timberwolves are reportedly ready to offer Eric Bledsoe the four-year, $63 million max-level contract he's been seeking.

The Wolves currently do not have the cap space to make this offer upfront, so it would need to involve a sign-and-trade. However, the Suns reportedly are not interested in Ricky Rubio, so it's unclear exactly who would be involved in this deal. Bledsoe has been great while on the court, and averaged 17.7 points, and 5.5 assists last season with the Suns, however, he also only made it through 43 games. It's difficult to give any real analysis without knowing how the parts would be moved in this deal, but we'll be monitoring the situation closely. Stay tuned.

Nick Young has told the Los Angeles Lakers' rookies that they cannot call him by his self-given nickname, "Swaggy P."

When asked about his new rookie nickname, Young said, "When you talk to them next time, ask Jordan [Clarkson] what he calls me every morning, and ask Julius [Randle] what he calls me every morning. It's got a little Swag in it." Jordan Clarkson shed a little more light on situation, "Naw, he told me to call him 'Daddy Swag'. That's a rookie duty so I'll make sure I get it done." Young enjoyed a career year with the Lakers in 2013-14, but is more of a volume shooter who will have trouble providing much fantasy value off the bench now that Kobe Bryant is healthy.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly been in contact with the Phoenix Suns about Eric Bledsoe.

These discussions have reportedly happened even after the Kevin Love trade, but it doesn't sound like much headway has been made as the teams aren't matching up on assets. Bledsoe hasn't received any offers as a restricted free agent and has until October 1 to sign his one-year qualifying offer. There may be more to come here, but the smart money is on Bledsoe opening the regular season with the Suns and providing early-to-mid round fantasy value.

Minnesota Timberwolves general manager Milt Newton is optimistic about the team's ability to extend Ricky Rubio's contract.

While Newton sounded optimistic about keeping Rubio from being a restricted free agent after the 2014-15 season, he also added that he and Ricky Rubio's agents don't currently agree on dollar figures. Rubio averaged 9.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and 2.3 steals during the 2013-14 season, but should see his fantasy value take a bit of a hit with Kevin Love now playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rockets acquire G Jason Terry in trade

The Kings will receive Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson, and a trade exception in exchange for Terry and two second-round draft picks in the trade that was finalized on Wednesday. The 2009 and 2011 Sixth Man of the Year only averaged 4.5 points in 35 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season and won't be worth fantasy owners' attention in 2014-15.

Jordan Crawford has agreed to a contract with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association.

This is an interesting move for a player who averaged 13.7 points and 5.7 assists through 39 games last season, but the 25-year-old wasn't receiving more than veteran minimum offers from NBA teams. While Crawford may end up returning to the NBA after the CBA season ends in February, he doesn't need to be on fantasy radars entering 2014-15 drafts.

J.J. Hickson received a five game suspension for violating the NBA's drug policy.

It's for marijuana and he will not be paid for those games. Hickson is recovering from ACL surgery and is hoping to be ready for training camp. With Hickson out, Kenneth Faired will get all the minutes he can handle while JaVale McGee and Timofey Mozgov will hold down the center spot. Hickson is not worth drafting in most leagues.
