LaMarcus Aldridge hit 12-of-21 shots and 8-of-10 free throws on his way to a season-high 32 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's 97-91 win over the Mavericks.

The Mavs are really bad against opposing bigs so it's not surprising that LMA went off tonight, despite a slow first half. As good as Aldridge has been this season it's hard to believe that's his season high, but he's scored in double figures in every game thus far and racked up at least 20 points in 11 of his 14 outings. The Spurs have the second of a back-to-back on Wednesday against the Timberwolves, meaning that every single player on the team is a question mark for tonight, including Aldridge.

Jakob Poeltl has been traded to the Spurs as part of the Kawhi Leonard deal.

With Pau Gasol entering his age-38 season and likely to again see a reduction in minutes this upcoming season, Poeltl could very realistically be looking at around 20 minutes a night with the Spurs, which would be enough floor time for him to carve out some value as a deep league, shot blocking specialist. We'll be watching the third-year center closely at training camp in San Antonio.

Danny Green is headed to Toronto as a part of the Kawhi Leonard-DeMar DeRozan trade.

Green should be able to start in Toronto, and he could see some more shots falling his way with less competition for touches. The 31-year-old's numbers have been on a steady downward decline since his second-round, 2014-15 campaign, but he could see a slight uptick in value with the Raptors. Still, he won't be worth much more than a late-round selection on draft day.

Updating a previous item, the Spurs have reportedly agreed to trade Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to the Raptors in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and draft considerations.

Toronto will be taking a bit of a risk on the 27-year-old forward with just one-year left on Leonard's deal and concerns about the health of his quad, but it's not easy for small market teams to acquire a player of Kawhi's caliber, so they'll take the OKC approach and try to woo him during his time in Canada. The arrival of Leonard and Green in Toronto isn't great news for OG Anunoby's outlook, but their departure will be a boon to Lonnie Walker's value. If Leonard can just stay healthy in Toronto, he shouldn't have much trouble churning out elite numbers.

K.J. McDaniels came off the bench and hit 8-of-14 shots for a team-high 17 points, seven rebounds and a block in 20 minutes of Tuesday's Vegas title game, which the Blazers easily won 91-73. He was named the Championship MVP.

The Lakers were gassed and never got into this game, while the Blazers ran out nine players with solid NBA experience to take the title. McDaniels had an emphatic dunk late in the game and played well, but should be nothing more than a role player for Portland once the games start actually counting, and assuming he makes the team.

Svi Mykhailiuk, who was one of the heroes in Monday's semifinal win, hit just 3-of-10 shots and 2-of-7 3-pointers for 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's 91-73 loss to the Blazers.

The Blazers take home the trophy while the Lakers saw their winning streak end at 12 games. Svi was 0-for-6 in the first half and the Lakers were 0-for-10 from downtown in the first half, finishing the game with just three 3-pointers on 39 percent shooting for the game. The Lakers were clearly tired after the winning streak and a double-overtime win Monday. Svi earned second-team honors in Vegas, while teammate Josh Hart earned the MVP Award and first-team honors. The 47th pick in the draft has a chance to be a nice role player for the Lakers this season, but it's hard to see him being a big fantasy factor, as of now.

Josh Hart was ejected after picking up a couple of technicals late in Tuesday's Vegas Finale, exiting the game with the Lakers down 20-plus points in the fourth quarter.

The Vegas Summer League MVP (named earlier tonight) finished with 12 points on 3-of-12 shooting and looked gassed after going off for a record 37 points against the Cavs on Monday night. Hart had a big Summer League showing and appears to have a chance to start for the Lakers when the regular season rolls around. If that's the case, he's probably worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

The Bucks announced they've signed veteran center Brook Lopez to a one-year, $3.38 million contract on Tuesday.

"Brook is a proven NBA center who bolsters our front line with his size and skill set," Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a team release. He could start at center in Milwaukee, but will give up minutes to John Henson and Then Maker, but he should see a much better usage rate than he saw with the Lakers last season.
Jul 17 - 11:06 PM

Lonzo Ball had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Tuesday.

The Lakers announced that Ball is "expected to make a full recovery by the start of the 2018-19 training camp." We should get a better idea of when he'll return to basketball activities in the coming weeks. The Lakers will have an open competition for the starting point guard role, but Ball should be able to beat out Rajon Rondo.

Treveon Graham has agreed to a two-year deal with the Nets.

The terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet, but the first year will be guaranteed. In 63 games with the Hornets last season, Graham averaged 4.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.6 treys in 16.7 minutes. The Nets are loaded with wings, so we wouldn't expect Graham to have a rotation spot right away.
Jul 17 - 7:42 PM

The Raptors will sign Lorenzo Brown to a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old point guard was the G-League MVP last season and made 14 appearances for Toronto while playing on a two-way contract. He's comfortably behind Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet and Delon Wright on the depth chart, so he's unlikely to crack the rotation.
Jul 17 - 7:22 PM

Deandre Ayton has been named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team.

Ayton looked great in limited doses at Summer League, pumping in averages of 14.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.0 block per game on 60% shooting in just 26.8 minutes per contest. He'll be a walking double-double threat his rookie year, and while the block totals won't be elite, they'll be there. Wade Baldwin IV, Jaren Jackson Jr., Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Trae Young were also named to the Summer League Second Team on Tuesday.
