According to, Lamar Odom's alleged drug use includes abuse of crack cocaine.

The website reports that Odom attended rehab for three weeks last summer and stayed clean during the NBA season. But when the season ended he relapsed into crack use, refused an intervention, and was thrown out of his house by his wife, Khloe Kardashian. It's a scary situation, if true, and Odom's health and well-being have quickly overshadowed the continuation of his NBA career.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that while no deal is done, the Suns have made "significant progress" in contract talks with Eric Bledose in the last couple days.

It's hard to see Bledsoe playing anywhere outside of Phoenix this season and this news backs that up. Bledsoe's injury problems last year resulted in somewhat of a lost season, but if healthy, he's extremely talented. If he does sign with the Suns, the outlook for Isaiah Thomas takes a hit, as he'll come off the bench behind Goran Dragic and Bledsoe. And the same holds true for one of last year's breakout stars, Gerald Green.

Brook Lopez has been playing 5-on-5 in Nets drills and reportedly feels great.

Couple this with a recent blurb stating that his confidence is "sky high," and it's easy to become enamored with the thought of drafting Lopez this year. However, the chances of him making it through the season without a foot injury don't appear to be good, so we're still not completely psyched by the thought of spending an early pick on the big man.

Michael Beasley reached an agreement on a deal with the Grizzlies.

The deal isn't guaranteed and he might not make it past training camp. It's an interesting pickup and the Grizzlies were a little under the radar here. Even in an ideal scenario, Beasley probably won't have many minutes going his way and he would need to play extremely well to make the rotation.

Eric Gordon (knee surgery) said that he'll be a "full go for everything" when the Pelicans begin training camp.

"From five weeks after surgery [in mid-April] I've been doing a lot of lifting," Gordon said. "I definitely want to be an All-Star. I've come close a couple of times. For the past three years, injuries have slowed me down." Offseason optimism is always heart-warming, but the reality is that Gordon's knees have caused him to miss 141 games over the past four seasons.

Warriors GM Bob Myers said that Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) will miss "most" of training camp.

Livingston needs on-court time to mesh with his teammates, but Golden State's priority is keeping him healthy. He's missed an average of 28.4 games per season during his 10-year career, and that doesn't include the 2007-08 season he missed after his devastating knee injury. Hopefully we'll see him back on the court during the preseason, but his toe injury makes him an even riskier fantasy option in deep leagues.

The Wolves are reportedly willing to offer Ricky Rubio a contract extension worth $42 million over four years.

Wolves GM Milt Newton said this week that he's optimistic the sides will strike a deal, though Rubio may be holding out for a max five-year contract. If they don't come to an agreement Rubio may try his luck as a restricted free agent next summer.

Mickael Gelabale told Sportando that he is still waiting for a good offer from a good NBA team.

Despite a strong season in Russia and a decent showing at the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, Gelabale is still a free agent. When asked if he was looking for a contract with a high-level Euroleague team or a chance to return to the NBA, the 31-year-old said, "I am looking for both. I feel I can play in one of the Euroleague top teams and also have a chance back in the NBA. I am just waiting for a good team and good offer to come." Gelabale has averaged 4.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 145 NBA games, so he won't bring much fantasy value with him if he does sign with an NBA team.

Tristan Thompson could start at center for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.

While he is a tad undersized to play center, the Cavaliers are determined to keep Anderson Varejao healthy and bringing him off the bench could go a long way towards accomplishing that goal. Whether he starts or not, Thompson is expected to see time at the center position this season in an effort to get him on the court. The 23-year-old averaged 11.7 points and 9.7 rebounds last season, but will see a dip in his numbers (and minutes) unless Kevin Love or Varejao go down with an injury.

Jae Crowder expressed his excitement to hone his defense alongside Tyson Chandler.

He hasn't played a real game with his new teammates yet, but Chandler is already bringing a defensive presence to the Mavericks. "I’ve been playing pickup with Chandler for two weeks and he’s one of the best defensive guys I’ve ever played with," Crowder said. "I love defense myself, and to play with another guy who loves defense as much as you do is something special. The 31-year-old saw his number dip a bit with the Knicks last season, but fantasy owners can still count on Chandler for a nightly threat of delivering a double-double to go along with at least one block.

Celtics president Danny Ainge expects Rajon Rondo to have the best year of his career in 2014-15.

With Rondo's future in Boston uncertain, the Celtics' president did his best to keep Rondo's trade value as high as possible. "I think he looks great. Fantastic," Ainge said. "That’s why I just said he’s going to have the best year of his life. That would be hard to do if he wasn’t really good. [Any hesitation from the ACL injury is] absolutely gone. He looks great." Rondo averaged 12.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 12.0 assists, and 1.5 steals during the month of April and will easily return top-10 fantasy point guard value if Ainge is correct in his assessment.

Gerald Wallace (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Brad Stevens.

While Stevens and team president Danny Ainge gave conflicting statements on whether Wallace has been at the team's facilities, it's clear that Wallace is at least in town. "I don't know completely on Gerald. I think he'll be ready to go by training camp, but I haven’t seen Gerald yet," Ainge said. Crash only averaged 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 steals in 58 games with the Celtics last season, so there isn't much fantasy value left in the 32-year-old's legs at this point.
