Austin Rivers (hand) has been working out with Kyrie Irving in Miami.

Rivers was already deemed "back to normal" by Monty Williams back on June 11 and he should be busy this summer in hopes of bouncing back from an ugly rookie season. He shot just 37.2 percent from the field last year and won't be worth drafting in most leagues next season.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kristaps Porzingis has emerged as a "primary target" for Cleveland as they consider possible trade scenarios involving Kyrie Irving.

Wojnarowski notes the Knicks are not currently interested and would only consider such a trade if the Cavs were also willing to take back Joakim Noah's contract. However, Woj does state that New York may consider moving KP at some point if the relationship between Porzingis and the team doesn't improve. "There continues to be distance between Porzingis and the organization, and how the Knicks truly value Porzingis' future could become clearer once they're together to begin the season," writes Wojnarowski.

According to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Zach Randolph could be banned from the NBA like former teammate O.J. Mayo if convicted of a felony marijuana charge.

Z-Bo was arrested on Wednesday and charged with "intent to sell" marijuana in California. TMZ reported that Z-Bo was in possession of two pounds of marijuana, but his agent Raymond Brothers called those accusations "false and misleading." This isn't Z-Bo's first run-in with the law, as he had incidents back in 2010 and 2011 -- he wasn't charged for either. According to the league’s collective bargaining agreement, a player can be "dismissed and disqualified from the NBA if he is convicted of, or pleads guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to, a crime involving the felony distribution of marijuana."

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed that he plans to play Boban Marjanovic extended minutes this season.

With Aron Baynes now in Boston, Marjanovic is expected to serve as Andre Drummond's primary backup. SVG did say that Jon Leuer will also see some time at center, but that the Pistons will give Boban plenty of playing time. "I don’t want to be in situations where I’m making an immediate response to a team going small and I just reflexively take [Marjanovic] out of the game," Van Gundy said. "That no matter what we’re doing defensively, that we give him a chance." SVG's endorsement is clearly good news for Boban's fantasy prospects.

The Knicks and Rockets have re-engaged on trade talks involving Carmelo Anthony, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Woj adds that the Rockets are still looking for a third team to get a deal done, and that Anthony has been "steadfast" that he only plans to waive his no-trade clause for a deal to Houston. The Rockets are trying to get someone to take Ryan Anderson, but it won't be easy with $60 million left on his deal. Woj also added that the Rockets will remain patient while the Blazers have an interest in acquiring the 10-time All-Star.

Patrick Patterson underwent a successful scope on his left knee on Thursday.

He will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks, so we'll consider him questionable for training camp. He did struggle with his knee last season, so hopefully those concerns will be in the rearview mirror. Recently signed to a three-year, $16.4 million deal, Patterson actually has a decent path to minutes in OKC, as his competition for minutes at the four consists of Jerami Grant and Nick Collison. He averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 triples in just under 25 minutes per game last season, so his upside isn't the greatest.

Tony Parker (quad) said that he's targeting a return to the court in four to five months.

He said back in May that he was targeting a return in January, so it sounds like he's still on pace to meet that goal. "It's OK. It's OK. It's getting better and better," Parker said of his quad. "I'm starting to run like a little bit. I'm walking pretty well. I think it's still going to be a long process. It's still going to take like another four or five months but I am very happy in with the progress." Parker can be ignored in standard-league drafts and wouldn't have been a target even if he was 100 percent. Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills will hold down the fort at PG until he returns to action.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks have asked Carmelo Anthony to expand his "wish list" of teams to join.

Another day, another Melo rumor. It's no secret that his preference is to join Houston, but the Knicks aren't willing to make a "bad trade" -- the Rockets would likely have to include Ryan Anderson's bloated contract and the Knicks aren't interested. Berman adds that the Pelicans, Cavaliers, Thunder and Blazers are all waiting in the wings in the hope that Melo expands his list. The All-Star forward recently had "great conversations" with Knicks GM Scott Perry, but it sounds like both sides are still determined to orchestrate a move away from New York.

Zach Randolph was arrested on Wednesday for drug possession and intent to sell it according to TMZ.

Z-Bo was one of three people to be arrested and it sparked "a crazy disturbance" that forced the cops to call for backup. He was arrested for possession of marijuana, though the "intent to sell" part was due to the large amount of weed found. The bail for his release was set for $20,000. At the least, a suspension for Z-Bo should be on the horizon, but the Kings and NBA will likely make a statement once more is known.

Owner Mark Cuban said Yogi Ferrell and Dennis Smith Jr. "are going to push each other" next season.

"Yogi is super competitive," Cuban said. "He started a lot of games as a D-League call-up and basically a 10-day [signee], and I know that he’s just as competitive as Dennis is." The Mavs did use a Yogi-DSJ backcourt in summer league, so it's an option for them in a matchup against a smaller team. On the other hand, Ferrell did slow down as the 2016-17 season went on and the Mavs drafted DSJ for a reason, so Ferrell will likely come off the bench and get almost all of his minutes as a backup PG.

President Donnie Nelson said Dennis Smith will have to prove he's ready to take the reins during training camp in order to win the starting point guard job.

"Those keys are earned. You know, it’s going to be an interesting training camp," Nelson said. "I think Dennis is going to play for one of the best coaches in the NBA. That being said, I think internally you can’t help but be excited by the potential, but he wouldn’t want it any other way." DSJ had a wow factor in Las Vegas and the Mavs are singing his praises at every opportunity, so he should be in a great position to win the job. He's a high-upside pick in the middle rounds.

Willie Reed's wife, Jasmine Reed, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that she will not press charges against her husband after he was arrested on domestic-violence charges on Sunday.

"This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf," said Mrs. Reed. "Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way."
