Kevin Garnett will sit against the Bobcats on Saturday night and is dealing with a left adductor strain.

He was limited in practice and it's not your classic case of rest. The Celtics rested Paul Pierce against the Bobbies earlier this week and lost, so the reward figures to outweigh the risk regarding the 36-year-old forward. Garnett's status for Monday's game could also be up in the air and we'll pass along any info on a prognosis as it becomes available.

Derrick Rose has been named on the initial 19-player roster for the 2014 Men's National Training Camp in Las Vegas.

19 guys will be vying for a spot on the 12-man World Cup roster, and Rose will be competing for a spot against Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Damion Lillard. Rose has played a total of 10 games over the past two years, so it will be exciting to see the former MVP suit up for his first professional action since going down early last season.

Kawhi Leonard has been left off the initial Team USA roster.

It's not clear why Leonard's name was not listed, but it's likely he simply declined the invite, as he's been a participant in year's past. After winning a championship, and Finals MVP trophy with the Spurs last season, perhaps Leonard simply would like an extended vacation free of injury-risk.

Despite Brooklyn losing Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett reportedly likes the direction that the Nets are going, and is "excited" to suit up for next season.

The 2014-15 NBA season will be Garnett's 20th season in the NBA, and likely his last. There were questions about whether or not Garnett would return after his longtime running mate Paul Pierce elected to sign with the Wizards, but all the reports as of late have Garnett playing out the final year of his contract in which he will earn $12 million. Garnett is a ferocious competitor, but his best year's are behind him as he averaged career-lows across the board last season. He is no longer a fantasy option.

Unrestricted free agent Ray Allen is reportedly contemplating retirement.

Allen is in no rush to select his next team, as he's not sure whether he wants to play, or call it quits on his career. Allen is the NBA's all-time leader in 3-point makes with 2973, and over 19-years of professional play Allen has shot 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. Needless to say, if Mr. Allen chooses to retire, the NBA will be losing one of the best shooters to ever play the game.

John Wall will not be on the Team USA roster which will be announced on Monday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Wall could still be included before Team USA begins their training camp in late July, and the FIBA World Cup won't be held until August 30 - September 14. It's unclear why Wall has been left off the initial roster but it shouldn't take long for more supporting details to emerge.

ESPN's Chris Broussard is reporting that the Timberwolves will not include Kevin Love in a two-way trade to the Cavaliers if Andrew Wiggins is not included in the deal.

The Cavs, on the other hand, say they have no intentions of moving Wiggins in order to get Love, although that could possibly change if push comes to shove. In any case, there's no doubt the Cavs want Love, and whether they can get a third team involved, or persuade the Wolves to deal without getting Wiggins, remains to be seen. Stay tuned.

Pau Gasol's contract with the Bulls is worth approximately $22 million over three years.

There's no word yet on whether the deal includes team or player options, but either way this is a solid value for Chicago. Gasol should start alongside Joakim Noah with Taj Gibson playing his typical sixth-man role, and it will be interesting to see whether coach Tom Thibodeau sticks with Gasol to close games or subs him out for his usual end-game frontcourt of Noah and Gibson.

Doug McDermott needed just 12 shots from the field to score 31 points vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, adding one rebound, one assist, one block and five 3-pointers.

He made all 12 shots from the line and made 7-of-12 from the field for a spectacular true shooting percentage of 89.7 percent. The Bulls have an absolutely loaded front line with the additions of Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic. McDermott is really going to have to be able to play both forwards spots to get consistent minutes.

Updating a previous report, the Pistons and free agent Caron Butler have agreed to terms on a two-year deal worth about $9 million.

The second year is a team option. Detroit's new president/coach Stan Van Gundy isn't messing around in free agency, as all four of his signings have been for guards and swingmen who can stretch the court to the 3-point line. CB notched 10.5 points per game last year with 45.8 percent of his shot attempts coming from downtown, but the 12-year veteran is strictly a specialist in fantasy leagues. His signing also leaves the Pistons with a glut at SG/SF and it's increasingly clear that either Josh Smith or Greg Monroe will have to be jettisoned before long.
Jul 13 - 9:40 PM

Free agent D.J. Augustin will sign with the Pistons on a two-year deal worth $6 million, according to TNT's David Aldridge.

The free agent market for PGs is thinning out quickly, as guys like Kirk Hinrich, Mario Chalmers, Brian Roberts and Augustin all agreed to terms on Sunday. Detroit already has Will Bynum and Peyton Siva on their roster behind starter Brandon Jennings, and they're stocked with SGs, so it's hard to envision Augustin recapturing the career-high 14.9 points per game he averaged with Chicago last season. Stan Van Gundy came into free agency with a priority on shooting, particularly from the beyond the arc, and he's splurged on deals for Jodie Meeks, Cartier Martin and Augustin.

Dennis Schroder was on fire Sunday, scoring 30 points with four rebounds, four assists, six fouls, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers on 9-of-14 shooting.

We guess it was a good day for Germany today. Schroder didn't play well in the opener, scoring just eight points on 2-of-13 shooting, so the law of averages had a say in this one. He was phenomenal as one of the best players to watch in summer league last year and we'll see if he can parlay another big game to earn minutes next season.
