Rudy Gay hit just 8-of-24 shots and one 3-pointer, but still filled the stat sheet with 25 points, a season-high 12 rebounds, three assists and four steals in 41 minutes on Wednesday.

He also hit all eight of his free throws and has scored between 20 and 29 points in each of his last four games. It looks like the move to Toronto is going to work out well for Gay and his fantasy owners, while tonight was just his fourth double-double of the season. Gay has scored a franchise-record 74 points in his first three games with the Raps, breaking the record of 71 set by teammate Kyle Lowry, who had 17 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, four steals and three 3-pointers tonight.

Cheick Diallo and the Pelicans have agreed to a three-year deal.

He's almost certainly going to be on the roster to start the season. Diallo was very impressive in Summer League, especially on the defensive end. He has a decent jumper, but he doesn't have much skill just yet. Considering how much Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca struggled, maybe DIallo can get minutes.

Alonzo Gee is finalizing a one-year deal with the Pelicans.

Gee's representatives and the Pelicans are hoping to finalize the deal in the next day. Due to the Pelicans having so many injuries late in the year, Gee played 25.9 minutes per game in March. He did suffer a quad tear to end his season on Mar. 28. He'll likely just be emergency depth.

Nets' head coach Kenny Atkinson said during Jeremy Lin's introductory press conference that he's looking for Lin to take on a leadership role, and that he will be the team's "full-time point guard."

Lin is coming into his prime, and has already discussed his willingness to embrace a leadership role for this young Brooklyn team. The last time Lin was a full-time starter was during the 2012-13 season in which he averaged 32.2 minutes a night to go with 13.4 points, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 triples per game on 44.1 percent shooting, which was good enough for mid-round value in standard leagues. Atkinson was also one of the primary coaches who helped develop Lin during his Lin-sanity run with the Knicks back in 2012, so he could be in for a career-year.

Jahlil Okafor is reportedly the "most likely" Philadelphia big to be traded to Boston, should a trade go down.

The 76ers and Celtics have been in trade talks since draft night, and while Boston was initially higher on Nerlens Noel, their interest in Noel has dissipated after they picked up their team option on Amir Johnson. Boston management reportedly believes that Okafor could pair well with Al Horford, although they are concerned about Okafor's well documented off-court antics. Okafor's value wouldn't necessarily improve playing in Boston's loaded frontcourt, but sending Okafor away would open up minutes for Noel, Joel Embiid, and Ben Simmons.

Donatas Motiejunas said that he's been "working out," and his back has not been giving him any problems.

Motiejunas spent most of the 2015-16 season recovering from back surgery, but he's now reportedly 100 percent healthy and pursuing his next contract. "I talked to my agent today, in the morning, and he told me that he's been talking with the Rockets the last couple of days," Motiejunas said. "Both sides are talking and trying to get an agreement." Motiejunas said that his preference would be to return to Houston, but a larger contract from another team could change his mind.

Michael Malone said that he believes the Nuggets can build around Nikola Jokic.

Jokic exploded onto the scene during the second-half of the 2014-15 season, putting up top-50 value in 9-cat leagues despite earning just 24.8 minutes a night with averages of 10.8 points, 9.0 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 blocks per game on 48.9 percent shooting. Jokic proved that he's capable of offering solid value in limited minutes, so while he will have a bit more competition for playing time in a healthy Jusuf Nurkic next year, he still makes sense as an early mid-round target.

Marc Gasol (foot) will not play in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Gasol's foot still hasn't healed from the injury that cut short his 2015-16 season and he will not be able to join Team Spain in Brazil. While it's not time to hit the panic button just yet, Gasol's fantasy stock for the 2016-17 season will take a hit if we don't get more positive news closer to draft day.

Denzel Valentine hit a game-winning jumper at the overtime buzzer to propel the Bulls to a Las Vegas Summer League title, finishing with five points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, four turnovers and one 3-pointer.

He actually had a terrible game up until the last minute of the fourth quarter and didn't even score in the first three quarters. On the stat sheet, Valentine had a somewhat disappointing trip to Las Vegas, averaging 12.3 points, 6.5 boards and 2.7 assists in his previous Vegas games. He'll be coming off the bench and could be someone to watch if Dwyane Wade needs to miss time.

The Thunder have rescinded their qualifying offer to Dion Waiters.

That makes him an unrestricted free agent, which means the Thunder won't be able to match an offer sheet from another team. However, they do still have his Bird rights and they could still re-sign him at some point. Waiters would have some decent value in OKC, but he could wind up with the 76ers or Nets.

LeBron James has informed the Cavaliers that he will re-sign with Cleveland this summer.

Coming off an emotional championship victory, James was never expected to entertain offers from other teams. He's in no rush to sign a deal and still needs to meet with his agent to survey his contract options -- in all likelihood he'll sign a deal that includes a player option next summer, to maximize his long-term salary. In the meantime, the Cavs are still working to retain unrestricted free agent J.R. Smith.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey suggested that lottery pick Jakob Poeltl could spend time in the D-League this season.

"I’m projecting [Poeltl and Pascal Siakam] to grow in the year with us, maybe down with the [D-League affiliate] 905," Casey said. "It’s going to be huge for them to be able to play games, but I project that they at some point [help the Raptors]." Toronto doesn't have much depth at center, so we're likely to see Poeltl in the rotation as the season progresses, but Casey's statements do nothing to improve the rookie's fantasy outlook.
