LaMarcus Aldridge returned from an ankle injury on Friday during a 116-98 loss to the Rockets, shooting 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points with 13 boards, three assists and one block in 40 minutes.

He passed Mychal Thompson for seventh place on Portland's all-time scoring list tonight and also leads the league with 30-10 games. Aldridge looked pretty healthy as indicated by the 40 minutes and he looks to be good to go even though Portland has mathematically been eliminated from playoff contention.

The Mavericks and free agent F Jeremy Evans have agreed to a two-year contract at the league minimum.

Dallas now has nine player with guaranteed or agreed-upon contracts next season, and they'll be active in the free-agent market as they continue to fill out the roster. Evans will give them some athleticism and dirty-work minutes off the bench, but he remains a fantasy non-entity while Dirk Nowitzki is healthy.

Lou Williams has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with the Lakers.

There are no details yet about potential team/player options. The Lakers backcourt is becoming a bit crowded with Lou joining D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson and Kobe Bryant, but the 28-year-old Williams should still approach the 25.2 minutes per game he averaged last season. Until his role is clarified, owners should consider him a late-round target for 3-pointers.

The Cavaliers are considering a trade for Joe Johnson with Brendan Haywood's expiring contract as a trade chip, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Johnson is owed a whopping $24.9 million and the Cavs are sparing no expense in their pursue of a championship this season -- we'd say they're going for broke, but owner Dan Gilbert has a $4.8 billion net worth. The Nets are eager to unload Johnson to lighten their luxury-tax payments this season, and they've spoken with multiple other teams including the Grizzlies.

Pistons rookie Stanley Johnson lit up the Clippers during Summer League action on Sunday, posting 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting with one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, one assist and three steals in 31 minutes.

He was playing at a different level vs. inferior competition and the Pistons have to be pleased with initial returns from the No. 8 overall pick. It would be surprising if Johnson wasn't starting on opening night, as his closest competition is Quincy Miller, Marcus Morris, Reggie Bullock and Cartier Martin. He'll face a typical rookie learning-curve this season but fantasy owners should be keeping a very close watch on Johnson.

Rodney Stuckey and the Pacers have agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal.

The third year is a player option and Pacers president Larry Bird was obviously serious when he said in mid-April, "I think it’s important for us to get [Stuckey] back here. We need guys like Rodney. He was a major plus for our franchise." Stuckey failed to provide much standard-league fantasy value in 26.4 minutes per game last season, and he's only worth a look in the final rounds for a handful of 3-pointers, assists and solid FT percentages.

Kosta Koufos and the Kings agreed to a four-year, $33 million deal.

The Kings were able to pry Koufos away from teams like the Clippers, but they did have to pay up for a backup big man. Coach George Karl was a fan of Kosta in Denver and he may use him at power forward. He fared very well at rim protection last season, but that was in a terrific Memphis system. Koufos wasn't able to step up in three starts last season, so he doesn't have great handcuff value. Plus, he only had an 11.5 usage rate as a power forward next to Marc Gasol last season. The Kings have arguably the best center in basketball, but they drafted a center at six and their biggest contract of the offseason was also to a center.

Kyle O'Quinn and the Knicks have agreed on a four-year, $16 million deal.

He couldn't get playing time with Jacque Vaughn, but maybe he can with Derek Fisher. O'Quinn is a solid defender when he's not fouling everything with a basketball and should be a useful backup to Robin Lopez. That said, a four-year deal seems odd for KOQ.

Jordan Adams carried the offensive load against the Nets during an 81-73 win on Saturday, adding five rebounds, one assist, three steals and three turnovers.

He was on fire to start the game, but the Nets defended him better in the second half. Adams is a go-to scorer when he's on, but the Grizzlies just don't have room for him to be a regular contributor.
Jul 4 - 6:53 PM

Roy Hibbert will be traded to the Lakers.

The two teams are working on the specifics of the deal. While Hibbert is a nice fit next to Julius Randle, his style of play is going to clash with D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson. It's still unknown what the Lakers will give up in the deal, but it's not expected to be much because of Hibbert's $15.5 million salary next season. Maybe a change of scenery will help Hibbert, so he's worth a look late in drafts.
Jul 4 - 5:59 PM

Frank Kaminsky filled the stat sheet against the Thunder on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 12 rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-19 from the field.

He did fold down the stretch and missed his final five shots from the field, but he was very effective on the offensive side. Kaminsky's defense wasn't as bad as expected, but he didn't really have to guard any high-caliber players in this loss. The Hornets are going to give him every chance to succeed this season.
Jul 4 - 4:54 PM

Elfrid Payton struggled with his shot during a 75-74 overtime win over the Clippers on Saturday, making 3-of-10 from the field for seven points with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

He's been working on his jumper a lot and it was looking good in practice, but it didn't translate today. Payton did have some confidence and he was on balance more often in this game. He's still a mid-round player to think about in standard leagues.
