Corey Brewer came out of nowhere for a career-high 51 points on 19-of-30 from the field in a win over the Rockets on Friday, adding two boards, one assist, six steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

Brewer joined Michael Jordan, Ricky Barry and Allen Iverson as the only players to score at least 50 points with six steals in a game in NBA history. He scored an unbelievable 16 of his 19 field goals from within three feet of the rim and was the main reason why the Wolves had a whopping 39 fast-break points with 27 transition points coming from Brew. Coach Rick Adelman joked after the game that Kevin Love (elbow) and Kevin Martin (foot) have been holding Brewer back and he said he didn't even know what to do with him. Brewer also has four consecutive games with four or more steals, but we don't think he'll have a streak of scoring 50 points or anything.

The Wolves agreed to a deal with Andre Miller.

Prof. Dre heads north to add some depth and coach up the Wolves' point guards. Rookie Tyus Jones probably wasn't quite ready for playing time and now Miller will likely be looking at minutes in the low teens. He's not worth drafting in most leagues.

Wesley Matthews (Achilles) said the Blazers never made an offer to re-sign him.

"I was pissed off," Matthews said. "I felt disrespected." The Blazers didn't call him, text him, or express any interest in bringing him back. Apparently, when word came out of Matthews wanting $15 million per season, they lost interest. Matthews picked up an extra $13 million to his contract with the DeAndre Jordan decision, so he got his money. Iron Man is targeting training camp.

The Kings will waive F Eric Moreland.

His minimum salary would have been guaranteed if they waited until Saturday, so the writing was on the wall for Moreland. He only managed to appear in three games last season due to a shoulder injury, but we will let you know if he latches on with another NBA team.

LeBron James was asked on Tuesday if he expects restricted FA Tristan Thompson to re-sign with the Cavs, to which he replied, "Yeah of course he will."

James, who was answering questions on Twitter, added that Thompson "Means way too much to [the Cavs'] success!" He's also on record as saying that Thompson should be a Cavalier for the rest of his career. Recent reports suggest the two sides have stalled in negotiations but it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Cleveland wouldn't sign him outright or match a competing offer.

Serge Ibaka (right knee surgery) is in South Africa for the first ever NBA Africa game, but Yahoo's Marc J. Spears reports that Ibaka has not been cleared to play.

Ibaka had surgery on Mar. 17 and was given an initial timetable of 4-6 weeks, so this raises some concerns for the Thunder. It's probable that OKC is simply being extra cautious with Ibaka to avoid any unnecessary setbacks, and we'll pass along more information as soon as possible. For the record, Ibaka said that if he's "100 percent" he will play for Spain during the EuroBasket tournament which begins in early September.

Kobe Bryant has expressed a willingness to play small forward for the upcoming season.

"I can do that," Bryant said to longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti when discussing the makeup of the current roster with D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson occupying the backcourt. Can Kobe do it? "It's been a while since he's played. We just need to see," Vitti said.

Isaiah Thomas (wrist) recently dropped 50 points at the Seattle Pro-Am event.

Thomas also added 11 boards and seven dimes for good measure, but this is really notable because it's clear Thomas' wrist, which he had surgery on in early July, is good to go moving forward. After the Celtics said Thomas' procedure would have no long-term effects, it appears that is indeed the case.

Mike Miller was traded to the Blazers on Sunday, along with Brendan Haywood and two future second-round picks.

It was a straight salary-dump for the Cavaliers, who cleared roster space and came away with trade exceptions worth roughly $13.4 million. Miller has a guaranteed $2.8 million salary this season but the Blazers are expected to negotiate a buyout so that he can sign with a contender, essentially netting Portland two second-round picks for less than Miller's salary and the temporary use of cap space. The Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavericks have emerged as potential landing spots for Miller, who isn't a viable fantasy option no matter which jersey he's wearing.

The Cavaliers have traded Brendan Haywood and Mike Miller to the Trail Blazers, along with two second-round picks.

Portland will absorb the salaries into their cap space and they're expected to waive both players in the near future -- Haywood's hefty $10.5 million salary is not guaranteed. The 14-year veteran appeared in only 22 games for Cleveland last season and he's unlikely to draw much interest as a free agent, but he could still garner a veteran-minimum deal to fill out some team's depth chart.

Nick Young, who made a game-winning 3-pointer in the Drew League on Sunday, said that GM Mitch Kupchak didn't want him to fret about L.A.'s decision to sign Lou Williams.

Young recently had a meeting with Kupchak, which reportedly left him confident that he'll stay with the Lakers next season. Nevertheless, his playing time and fantasy value are directly threatened by Williams' arrival. He told reporters that he's spent the summer improving his decision-making and play off the ball both defensively and offensively, but coach Byron Scott didn't sound too impressed. "I don’t know what he’s doing," Scott said earlier in July. "If he’s saying that’s what he’s doing, then that’s what I believe he’s doing."

The Orlando Magic have acquired Shabazz Napier from the Heat in exchange for a protected future second-round pick.

The Heat have been shopping Napier around for a while due to a logjam in their backcourt, so it was just a matter of time before a deal was made. Napier will have a much easier time finding minutes in Orlando, but he still won't be a target in standard leagues while Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo are healthy. On a side note, this increases the likelihood that Tyler Johnson sees some minutes as a backup point guard in Miami next season, while it's also possible that the Heat could decide to keep Mario Chalmers.
