Kevin Durant torched the Lakers at Staples Center with 42 points, eight boards, five assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes on Friday.

He didn't top 30 points in any of his previous five games in 2013 and put on a show for the national audience. Durant shot 16-of-25 from the field and made 10 of his 11 shots from within 17 feet. He simply cannot be guarded in one-on-one and we wouldn't rule out a big second half to win the scoring title for a fourth consecutive season.

Kobe Bryant has expressed a willingness to play small forward for the upcoming season.

"I can do that," Bryant said to longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti when discussing the makeup of the current roster with D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson occupying the backcourt. Can Kobe do it? "It's been a while since he's played. We just need to see," Vitti said.

Isaiah Thomas (wrist) recently dropped 50 points at the Seattle Pro-Am event.

Thomas also added 11 boards and seven dimes for good measure, but this is really notable because it's clear Thomas' wrist, which he had surgery on in early July, is good to go moving forward. After the Celtics said Thomas' procedure would have no long-term effects, it appears that is indeed the case.

Mike Miller was traded to the Blazers on Sunday, along with Brendan Haywood and two future second-round picks.

It was a straight salary-dump for the Cavaliers, who cleared roster space and came away with trade exceptions worth roughly $13.4 million. Miller has a guaranteed $2.8 million salary this season but the Blazers are expected to negotiate a buyout so that he can sign with a contender, essentially netting Portland two second-round picks for less than Miller's salary and the temporary use of cap space. The Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavericks have emerged as potential landing spots for Miller, who isn't a viable fantasy option no matter which jersey he's wearing.

The Cavaliers have traded Brendan Haywood and Mike Miller to the Trail Blazers, along with two second-round picks.

Portland will absorb the salaries into their cap space and they're expected to waive both players in the near future -- Haywood's hefty $10.5 million salary is not guaranteed. The 14-year veteran appeared in only 22 games for Cleveland last season and he's unlikely to draw much interest as a free agent, but he could still garner a veteran-minimum deal to fill out some team's depth chart.

Nick Young, who made a game-winning 3-pointer in the Drew League on Sunday, said that GM Mitch Kupchak didn't want him to fret about L.A.'s decision to sign Lou Williams.

Young recently had a meeting with Kupchak, which reportedly left him confident that he'll stay with the Lakers next season. Nevertheless, his playing time and fantasy value are directly threatened by Williams' arrival. He told reporters that he's spent the summer improving his decision-making and play off the ball both defensively and offensively, but coach Byron Scott didn't sound too impressed. "I don’t know what he’s doing," Scott said earlier in July. "If he’s saying that’s what he’s doing, then that’s what I believe he’s doing."

The Orlando Magic have acquired Shabazz Napier from the Heat in exchange for a protected future second-round pick.

The Heat have been shopping Napier around for a while due to a logjam in their backcourt, so it was just a matter of time before a deal was made. Napier will have a much easier time finding minutes in Orlando, but he still won't be a target in standard leagues while Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo are healthy. On a side note, this increases the likelihood that Tyler Johnson sees some minutes as a backup point guard in Miami next season, while it's also possible that the Heat could decide to keep Mario Chalmers.

Samuel Dalembert agreed to a one-year deal with the Mavericks.

He was with the Mavericks for the 2013-14 season and was at times in coach Rick Carlisle's doghouse. Dalembert is likely just going to be some emergency depth, which will likely be needed because of how often Zaza Pachulia is hurt. He is not worth drafting in fantasy leagues.

Glenn Robinson has reached an agreement with the Pacers to sign a three-year deal.

Robinson didn't make any noise on the 76ers last season, so there is no reason to think that he will have more than a limited role in Indiana. He averaged 11.8 points with 3.2 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 blocks for the Hawks during summer league, but he is safe to ignore in most fantasy leagues.

Anthony Randolph soared like an eagle in Friday's Pan-Am Games loss to Canada, scoring 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Like the bad guy in a scary movie, Ant-Rand's stat appeal just won't die. Randolph has been off the radar more than a stealth bomber, so fantasy owners can ignore him regardless of his output in boxscores.

Blazers sign G Phil Pressey and F Cliff Alexander.

It's still unknown how the Blazers are going to address their point guard situation. We're hoping they bring C.J. McCollum off the bench to get a chunk of point-guard minutes, but he'll get his time regardless. As for Pressey, he has been a disaster as a scorer so far in his career, making just 33.3 percent from the field in his two seasons with the Celtics.

The Pacers have acquired Rakeem Christmas from the Cavs in exchange for a 2019 second-round selection.

"We really liked Rakeem when he came in for pre-draft workouts," said Larry Bird. "He is a solid player who was a contributor all four years at Syracuse and we look forward to having him on our team." Christmas compiled averages of 8.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game through four Summer League games, and he'll help backup Jordan Hamilton and Paul George at the power forward slot in Indiana. He's a project, so it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league asset during his rookie season. His contract with the Pacers will be for four-years, at $4.5 million, with the first two years guaranteed.
