Ersan Ilyasova will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

He doesn't play in both games of back-to-back sets and he probably shouldn't play in entire with how terrible he's looked on defense. Fantasy owners should probably just cut their losses on Ilyasova at this point.

The Timberwolves reportedly view Thaddeus Young as a potential Kevin Love replacement.

The Wolves are reportedly looking into acquiring Young from the 76ers either through a separate transaction, or as part of an expanded Love trade. However, Young still has two years remaining on his current contract, and it's unclear as to whether Philadelphia is willing to part ways with Young in any deal.

Steve Nash confirmed in a recent interview that he will retire after the 2014-15 season.

"I think this is my last season," said the 40-year-old Nash. "But I still love to play, practice and work on my game. I’m going to spend hopefully many many years living this life without basketball. It’ll be nice to play one more year." Nash, in his prime, was one of the most exciting point guards to watch. He won back-to-back MVP awards from 2004-2006, taking his Phoenix Suns team through multiple deep playoff runs, but never ending on the ultimate goal of an NBA championship. However, he just doesn't have it anymore at 40 years of age, and he only managed to make it through 15 games last season. While no longer a fantasy option, he figures to be a first ballot Hall of Famer, and the league will miss his constant professionalism.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Derrick Rose will not have any restrictions with Team USA.

Considering he's had eight months to rehab his torn meniscus, Rose should be ready to go in Spain. As a reference point, most meniscus tears require around eight weeks of rehab time. He'll be competing for a roster spot and Coach K said he's excited to be see Rose play. We'll be tracking his progress throughout the event.

Jimmy Butler will not participate in Team USA's training camp this week due to a slightly strained groin.

The injury doesn't sound serious but Butler is taking a conservative approach, which should please the Bulls even as it weakens Team USA. Earning a spot on the team would have given Butler an opportunity to learn from the league's best while gaining international exposure, so it's an unfortunate turn of events for the Bulls' 24-year-old shooting guard.

Byron Scott has agreed to terms with the Lakers and will be their head coach.

It will be a four-year, $17 million deal for the former Nets, Hornets and Cavs head coach. The Lakers interviewed him way back in May and he's been the frontrunner for the job for a long time. Scott has plenty of street cred as a former member of the Lakers in their championship Showtime years, so the fans should cut him some slack. He'll have his hands full with little depth on his team, especially in the frontcourt.

Kevin Love will not play for Team USA this summer because he doesn't want to risk injury, according to the Associated Press.

Team USA announced that Love is not going to play, but obviously did not list a reason for his absence. This is perhaps the strongest piece of evidence that Love very badly wants out of Minnesota. His decision to sit out clearly shows he's trying to do all he can to make sure the Wolves are able to deal him, or he may not want to answer hundreds of questions every day. FOX Sports reported that he wants to go to Cleveland, and the Cavs remain the frontrunners.

Carlos Boozer said on Friday that he's comfortable playing power forward or center.

Based on last season, he doesn't bode well as a center at all. On defense he allowed his man to shoot a combined 52.0 percent on post-ups and as the pick-and-roll roll man. On the other hand, Boozer shot just 38.3 percent in those situations on offense last year (stats per Synergy). He also had a career-low in rebounds per game while posting his second-lowest offensive rebounding rate in his career. The Lakers are going to have to come up with something at center because Jordan Hill isn't capable of playing more than 24 minutes over the course of a season. The 32-year-old Boozer is more of a late-round pick in standard leagues.

Carmelo Anthony said he wants to win and doesn't "care about the money."

"I believe Phil [Jackson] will do what he has to do to take care of that," Anthony said. "I don't think we're that far away." He added it came down to the Knicks or the Bulls in his tough free-agency decision. The Knicks haven't really improved much and you could argue they got worse with the loss of Tyson Chandler. Anthony led the NBA in shots per game last season and he'll likely have a chance to repeat in that department in 2014-15.

Blake Griffin will not play for Team USA this summer at the FIBA World Cup in Spain.

"I want to focus and dedicate 100 percent of my energy on improving and preparing frmo the upcoming season with the Clippers," Griffin said. The Clippers were a bit of a letdown despite seeing Griffin having his best season, DeAndre Jordan breaking out, and Chris Paul becoming a more well-rounded scorer. Griffin's improved free throw shooting makes him a much more fantasy-friendly player to own, making him worth a look in the second round of upcoming drafts.

Ray Allen has not decided on if he's going to play next season.

Obviously that means he hasn't decided on joining up with LeBron James and the Cavs. The Boston Globe reported that Allen is leaning to the Cavs, which is still the most-likely outcome. He'll be coming off the bench on just about any team and he probably won't get more than 10 shots per game.
Jul 24 - 6:30 PM

John Wall will be participating in Team USA camp starting on Monday.

Earlier this month, he was not expected to be on the team, but now he's a very strong bet to play with them this summer. Wall grew as a point guard and not just a scorer this season, leading the NBA in total assists. He'll be one of the best point guards in the NBA for the next decade or so.
