Updating a previous item, David Stern confirmed that the NBA's Board of Governors has officially voted down the proposed relocation of the Kings to Seattle.

The long, drawn-out Seattle saga is finally over -- at least with the Kings, who will remain in Sacramento and likely be sold to a group headed by Vivek Ranadive. Stern said the league will talk to the Maloof family within the next 48 hours about selling the team to Ranadive's group. Stern also said there are no plans to expand and put a franchise in Seattle at this time and the league would wait to re-open those talks until the next round of TV negotiations. The NBA's relocation committee previously recommended against relocating the Kings' move during an April meeting.

Mike Conley is said to be fully recovered from his sore Achilles according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

He's had some tough luck with injuries the past few seasons, but this means the 28-year-old will be entering training camp at 100 percent. He signed the richest contract in NBA history this month and new coach David Fizdale wants him to take on more of a scoring role next season. Fizdale should also increase the pace in Memphis which should bode well for Conley's outlook -- the Grizzlies were 27th in pace last season and Conley still managed to return fifth-round value in standard leagues. If he stays healthy, improvement seems inevitable.

Paul George (calf) will not play on Friday night against Venezuela, according to NBATV.

According to NBATV, it's not serious and the team is just being careful. Team USA obviously doesn't need George out there based on how they've crushed their competition. He'll be ready to roll for Rio next month.

The Warriors are signing JaVale McGee to a "make-good deal for a chance to make the team" in training camp, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

As crazy as it sounds, McGee might have a chance to make the team. The Warriors have very little depth, especially with their young big men dealing with injuries. McGee is really going to have to impress to make the roster, but it's worth mentioning he did show some flashes last year.

Dwyane Wade said the Bulls are "Jimmy Butler's team."

"This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Jimmy Butler," Wade said. He said he's just going to play his game, so it doesn't sound like he'll be adding many 3-pointers to his arsenal. Wade ranked in the top five for usage rate among qualifiers in the last two years, so it'll be interesting to see how the shots are distributed in the Chicago offense. Wade will be a risky mid-round pick.

David Lee has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3.2 million deal with the Spurs, with the second year being a player option.

Lee will earn limited minutes in San Antonio backing up both LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol, which is far from ideal from a fantasy perspective. Lee's days of being a relevant name in standard leagues are behind him.

Paul George (left calf strain) is "50-50" to play vs. Venezuela on Friday.

He left Team USA's win over China after just 10 minutes, but the team sat him down for precautionary reasons. George even said that he's not concerned about his calf, but head coach Mike Krzyzewski hinted that he will take it easy on George over the next few days, and he will be very limited during Thursday's practice. His goal is to be 100 percent for the start of the Olympics.

Karl-Anthony Towns said he's going "back to his roots" and focusing on improving his 3-point shot this summer.

"It’s been paying dividends," Towns said. "My shot has looked the best it’s looked in about four years, and I’m really happy." He shot 34.1 percent from deep as a rookie, but he only attempted 1.1 treys per game. Towns has already solidified himself as a first-round pick in all formats, but the promise of a few more 3-pointers gives fantasy owners even more reason to be excited. Towns also said that he hopes to spend his entire career in Minnesota and that his fans can expect big things from the Wolves this season.

The Magic are not currently shopping Nikola Vucevic, according to sources of Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Lowe argues that the Magic may need Vucevic's low-post game and particularly his passing ability for the team to function, as both Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo are limited in both those categories. Head coach Frank Vogel has said that he'll "explore" playing Biyombo and Vucevic alongside one another, although he acknowledged it's a strategy that "won't work against a lot of teams," and he's still yet to name his starting center. If someone in Orlando is traded, Vucevic will be the most likely to go, and that would more than likely improve his fantasy outlook.

Moe Harkless has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Trail Blazers on a four-year deal in the $40 million range.

Harkless had some bright moments when he was moved into the starting lineup during the 2015-16 season, putting in averages of 11.9 points, 6.6 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.0 block through 14 games as a starter, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of role he earns with the Blazers during his second year in Portland. He does have a lot of competition for minutes with Al-Farouq Aminu, Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh, but after starting every game for Portland during the post-season, he'll make for an intriguing late-round gamble in deep leagues.

Six-time All-Star Amare Stoudemire has announced that he will be retiring from the NBA after 14 years in the league.

Stoudemire released a statement saying that he will be retiring as a New York Knick, "Although my career has taken me to other places, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick." Stoudemire spent some of the best years of his career running the pick-and-roll to perfection with Steve Nash in Phoenix, but his body just started to breakdown around 2011. STAT will end his career with averages of 18.9 points, 7.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 swats per game. Click the link below for his full statement. As a side note, there's a chance STAT suits up in the CBA or Israel next season, but his NBA days are over.

Rudy Gay stated during a recent interview that he underwent a minor procedure to correct an ongoing issue he’s had with Achilles tendinitis.

Gay had been dealing with Achilles tendinitis for the past two years, but he said after the surgery that he's feeling the best he has in two years and that he's "excited" for next season. Gay also expressed a lot of frustration regarding the Sacramento franchise, saying that at this point in his career he wants to play for an organization that demonstrates consistency, and that the Kings don't have that "at all." Gay also denied that he's formally asked for a trade, but it seems likely he'll be wearing a different jersey next season, as he's clearly no longer happy playing in Sacramento.
