Jusuf Nurkic scored 12 points with six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 18 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

He showed a lot of confidence in his jumper and even attempted two treys. Nurkic lost 35 pounds and did a terrific job moving in transition tonight, and the Blazers were not shy about getting the ball to him in the paint. It's worth a mention he did suffer a right leg contusion, but he looked fine and started the second half. If Nurkic can shake his injury concerns, he could have a big year in his first full go 'round as a Blazer.

Jaren Jackson Jr. finished Sunday's victory with 14 points, eight rebounds and four blocks in 19 minutes, helping Memphis advance to the Las Vegas Summer League semifinals.

Jackson came in shooting just 37.0% through four games in Vegas, but he's also been grabbing 8.3 boards with 3.8 swats in only 25.5 minutes. His fantasy potential as a shot-blocker and rebounder is glaring. He has the length, timing and athleticism to be a keeper-league favorite. He knocked down 2-of-4 triples and all four of his free throws tonight, too, which is very encouraging.

Wade Baldwin had 14 points, 10 assists, one rebound and one steal vs. the Celtics on Sunday, making 6-of-12 shots with one 3-pointer.

Blazers GM Neil Olshey spoke about Baldwin during the telecast and gave the impression that his $1.5 million salary will be guaranteed -- Portland has until July 19 to make a final decision. Even if he does earn backup PG minutes, though, it's hard to see him emerging as a fantasy asset with Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Seth Curry on the roster.

Collin Sexton finished Sunday's victory with 18 points, six assists, three rebounds and three turnovers in 27 minutes, making 6-of-14 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs.

The Cavs' Summer League coach, James Posey, has been encouraging Sexton to play to his aggressive instincts in Vegas. "'We gotta push the pace. Make or miss, get the ball down the court,'" Posey told Sexton. "It gives him the opportunity to go one-on-one, or play it out and get a pick-and-roll to go downhill ... He’s been controlling the game for us." Cleveland could turn Sexton loose as a rookie now that LeBron is gone, and his knack for drawing fouls should help points-league owners, but concerns about efficiency and turnovers may depress his fantasy value on draft day.

Josh Hart put up 18 points in Sunday's Summer League win over the Pistons, adding four assists, two rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer across 21 minutes.

Hart got off to a hot start, sinking his first four shots, and perhaps he had some extra incentive to put his skills on display with LeBron James watching from the sidelines. He also did an excellent job of shutting down Bruce Brown Jr. on the other end of the floor, and based on recent comments from Magic Johnson, it seems he'll be competing for the starting two-spot with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at training camp. Hart could make for a nice sleeper pick on draft day.

Jaren Jackson Jr. swatted seven shots during a win over the Jazz on Saturday, adding nine points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Those seven blocks tie the Vegas record for blocks in a game. Jackson has put up a slew of blocks on smaller players, and it's becoming even more clear that he can play defense in space. As the Grizzlies try to expand his offensive limits, Jackson Jr. has trended down since his 29-point opener, but he continues to be an impactful player.

Jevon Carter scored 26 points with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He had a strong game on Thursday with Kobi Simmons sitting, but this time Carter did damage on offense with Kobi in the starting lineup next to him. Carter was viewed as a defense-first guard for his big-time steals numbers, but his offense has been eye-catching. If he has a big camp, maybe Carter can find some time with the big club before 2019.

Shabazz Napier has agreed to a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

He's coming off his best season and is 27 years old. The Nets didn't waste time to add another point guard after trading Jeremy Lin away, so Napier will be the newest third PG on the depth chart. Although, Caris LeVert is still going to be vying for minutes at the point, so Napier is going to have to earn his rotation spot.

Channing Frye has agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Cavs.

The Cavs are looking to round out their roster and Frye is a reliable veteran that will provide the team with outside shooting up front. He spent 2.5 seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Lakers at the February deadline. Frye is unlikely to make a fantasy impact, as he averaged just 5.0 points per game last season.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski‏ is reporting that Jabari Parker has agreed to a two-year, $40 million deal with the Bulls.

Wojnarowski‏ adds that Milwaukee rescinded Parker's qualifying offer moments before he signed the new deal, making him unrestricted. Parker, who is a Chicago kid, heads home. It's a bit of an odd fit roster-wise, but the Bulls are investing in a talented young player they hope will be able to stay healthy. Also, the second year of the deal is a team option, which mitigates the risk. Chicago could end up starting five players age 23 or younger next season: Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, Jabari Parker, Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr.

The Mavericks have rescinded the qualifying offer on Yogi Ferrell, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

That'll make him an unrestricted free agent. The Mavs were expecting Ferrell to sign the offer and have him play on that for the upcoming season, but perhaps Ferrell wasn't interested in that offer. Additionally, Tim MacMahon of ESPN adds that the Mavs and Ferrell are on the "one-yard line" to get a deal done, so maybe he'll be staying beyond this season.

Harry Giles and Justin Jackson are out for Friday.

It's just rest for the two picks from the 2017 NBA draft. Giles had himself a very productive time with his work in Sacramento and Vegas, showing his defensive presence, face-up game on offense, and running the floor very well for a big man. Giles projects as more of a center for the Kings, and it's possible he sees a few starts in his rookie season. It'll be a bumpy ride to start the year with so much competition, so he'll likely be more of a stash.
