The Nets will not retain interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo, who took over mid-season after the team fired Avery Johnson.

"By doing it now, there's a lot of jobs open, so it gives P.J. a chance and it gives us a chance, with a lot of candidates out there, to explore," said GM Billy King. He added that the Nets will take "the next couple of weeks" to survey their options, and it stands to reason that billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov will target high-profile coaches, possibly including Jeff Van Gundy and Phil Jackson.

Marcus Smart hit 6-of-20 shots (2-of-10 3PTs, 12-of-13 FTs) for 26 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in Monday's preseason loss to the Jazz.

Smart looked like a man playing with boys out there and with all Summer League disclaimers aside, it does look like he had a productive summer. He'll have to vie for touches in the Celtics backcourt, but there should be enough to go around and Smart looks like a post-Hype guy heading into this season.

Rodney Hood looked fantastic against the Celtics on Monday, scoring 23 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

It was a different Rodney Hood tonight with his effectiveness off the dribble. As it turns out, only 12.6 percent of his shots were off one dribble last season and he only made 40.4 percent on those. Hood showed skills with both hands and really didn't have anyone get in his way for getting the shot he wanted. The Jazz have quite the position battle in store on the wing, but Hood is in the mix for major minutes. He needs to stay healthy, though.

Dante Exum left Monday's preseason game with a left ankle injury and did not return, finishing with 20 points on 5-of-11 shooting (1-of-5 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs), five rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes.

Exum was playing well before he rolled his ankle and hopefully we get to see more of his development before Summer League ends. He looked like he was going to try and make it off the court on his own, but then needed some help from trainers on his way to the back. We'll update you as we learn more.

Mo Williams has reached an agreement with the Cavs on a two-year, $4.3 million deal.

The second year of this contract is a player option. With the Cavs adding Williams, that could mean they aren't going to be able to get Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson. Williams' minutes figure to be in the low 20s next season, so he's not a great fantasy option. He would be worth a pickup if Kyrie Irving (knee) isn't healthy for camp.
Jul 6 - 9:35 PM

Jahlil Okafor scored 20 points on 10-of-22 shooting (0-for-4 free throws) with nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in Monday's preseason debut against the Spurs.

We didn't really learn anything new about Okafor but he did reinforce some of the obvious scouting reports, including his great hands down low and questionable foul shooting. He looked like he was laboring a bit in the Utah altitude but all in all he looks like a three-cat player in terms of field goal percentage, points and boards, but he might not get enough defensive stats to offset his troubles at the stripe.
Jul 6 - 9:22 PM

Joe Ingles is finalizing a two-year, $4.5 million deal with the Jazz.

The two sides of this deal never really lost contact with talks never really breaking off. Ingles may have a tougher time getting playing time this upcoming season with the Jazz hopeful to have a healthy Rodney Hood, Alec Burks back, and maybe Dante Exum getting more minutes.
Jul 6 - 7:16 PM

Leandro Barbosa and the Warriors agreed on a one-year, $2.5 million deal.

He had a couple bright spots for the Warriors in the postseason and only the Pelicans had interest in the Brazilian Blur. Barbosa won't have much fantasy value next season.
Jul 6 - 7:02 PM

Stanley Johnson had an efficient game against the Heat on Monday, making 4-of-5 from the field for 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's looked terrific at times in Orlando, but this is summer league. Johnson has excelled on the perimeter side of things, which was a big concern for him coming into the offseason. He's also creating some offense with steals and his fantasy game could translate nicely. That said, the addition of Marcus Morris really hurts the appeal of Johnson in re-drafts.
Jul 6 - 6:56 PM

Mitch McGary showed off his offensive skill set against the Magic during a 73-65 win, making 9-of-12 from the field for 19 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two fouls in 25 minutes.

He has lost close to 30 pounds and it's pretty clear he's worked on his mid-range game, too. McGary basically just lived around the rim during his rookie season, so his offseason has gone quite well to broaden his ability to play outside of the paint on both ends. Still, he's just going to be a backup for OKC.
Jul 6 - 5:19 PM

Aaron Gordon looked fantastic again on Monday against the Thunder, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 8-of-11 from the field.

Again, he struggled from the line, making just 4-of-8 from there. However, his mid-range game looks like it's from another world while he has been destroying his man off the dribble. Gordon has clearly put in the work and he's not ready to concede his minutes to the number of forwards on the Magic roster right now. He's becoming a late-round flier at this rate.
Jul 6 - 5:12 PM

J.J. Barea will stay with the Mavs on a two-year, $5.6 million deal.

The Heat were really after him, but the acquisition of DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews may have helped Barea's case. The Mavs are expected to land Jeremy Lin, which means these two will likely share the minutes at point guard. Neither has been able to show consistency, so they may cancel each other out.
