Briante Weber will sign a 10-day deal with the Grizzlies.

They will not extend Xavier Rathan-Mayes' contract to make room for Weber. He's a defensive-minded PG and has bounced around the league with five different teams. As long as Andrew Harrison (wrist) and Mario Chalmers (hamstring) are out, Weber will see some minutes at PG along with Kobi Simmons. He's only worth monitoring in very deep leagues for his steals.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (left adductor strain) will be ready for training camp according to Nets GM Sean Marks.

Marks didn't go into detail, but it's nice to have an update because we've heard very little since he picked up the injury in early August. RHJ is the favorite to start as Brooklyn's small-ball four this season and will be a nice source of points, out-of-position assists, rebounds and defensive stats.

Despite a "fantastic offseason," GM Sean Marks said it's unlikely that the Nets will agree to an extension with D'Angelo Russell before the Oct. 15 deadline.

"If I was to say right now, I’d probably say we’ll let it ride out. But things change in this business pretty quickly, so we’ll adjust as we go," Marks said. This isn't a big surprise with the Nets trying to keep their flexibility for free agency in 2019. Russell is healthy, motivated and the coaching staff and his teammates have been talking him up all summer, but as talented as he is, inefficiency and durability concerns makes him one of the most polarizing fantasy assets.

The 76ers have hired Elton Brand to be their new GM, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Brand impressed ownership and Brett Brown during the interview process, beating out several other candidates, and he will now be elevated from VP of Basketball Operations. He rose through the ranks in Philly, from the GM of the G-League team to now overseeing the 76ers franchise, and he did all that in just a years time.

Mike Conley has completely recovered from the left heel surgery and he'll be working without limitations at training camp.

"Right now he’s in full participation in everything we’re doing," Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. "In training camp, our expectation is that he’s full go... We don’t have any expectation of Mike missing anything. As the season goes, we’ll keep an eye on him." Bickerstaff also noted that with the added depth at point guard he'll be able to better manage Conley's minutes, so it sounds like they want to keep him in the lower-30s this year.

Dion Waiters (foot surgery) will not be ready for the start of training camp and it's unlikely he'll be cleared in time for Miami's regular-season opener on October 17.

"Dion will not be returning to the court until the Heat medical team and training staff deem him healed, rehabbed and physically conditioned for all basketball activities," said Pat Riley in an official Miami Heat statement. Waiters will likely be brought along slowly, and he'll be competing for minutes with Dwyane Wade and Wayne Ellington, so there's no reason to target him in any leagues.

Brett Brown said he's expecting Joel Embiid to be "dominant" this season.

Brown has been thoroughly impressed with Embiid's workouts this summer, and we'd anticipate the 24-year-old center taking another big leap forward in his third NBA season. While he remains a bit of an injury-risk after only making it through 63 games last season, it's worth noting that none of those missed games last season were due to knee or foot issues. If you want him, you'll need to invest at the top of Round 2.

According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, although Jimmy Butler "has serious questions about the direction of the franchise, he’s still willing to hear Minnesota out, and isn’t dead set on demanding a trade elsewhere."

It was initially reported that Butler planned to sit down with the Wolves on Monday, but Butler himself clarified that the meeting will take place on Tuesday. This could be a pivotal set of meetings that eventually determines the direction Minnesota is headed in for the 2018-19 season. Stay tuned, as we will provide updates as soon as they are made available.

Kyle Anderson said Mike Conley looked "good" and "game-ready" in a recent pickup game.

This is notable because it's the first confirmed report of Conley playing with contact since his surgery back in January. He's played 70 or fewer games in four straight seasons which has pushed his ADP to the middle rounds, but he does have a lot of appeal as a bounce-back candidate if the uncertainty in Memphis doesn't scare you.

Frank Ntilikina has added 10-15 pounds to his frame this offseason.

Coach David Fizdale was asked about his position, but said he envisions using him all over the floor. "You know I’m not going to give [Frank] a position. You have multiple players that can dribble, play, shoot," Fizdale said. "Why put him in a box? We know he can guard 1-4, he's extremely elite." We know The Frenchise is going to get a ton of minutes in his second season, so he's a name to monitor in the preseason to see if his offense has started to catch up to his elite defense.

When asked if it makes sense for the Knicks to hold Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out for the season, President Steve Mills said that the team won't jeopardize his long-term future.

It sounds like the Knicks are open to holding him out for the season, but there's no need to panic just yet. He's "coming along well" in his rehab, and we won't have to wait long for another update on his knee because he'll be re-evaluated this week. Health concerns aside, Porzingis just arrived to New York and is said to be excited about the direction of the franchise after meeting with coach David Fizdale.

ESPN's Tim MacMahon said the "word out of Dallas is that [Luka] Doncic has often been the best player on the court in pickup games at the Mavs' facility."

Some of the games included local products such as LaMarcus Aldridge, so it wasn't just with Mavs. Maybe it's just offseason talk, but we've already heard glowing reports from Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes and head coach Rick Carlisle. MacMahon added that Doncic isn't in great shape by NBA standards yet, but that's obviously understandable considering he took a lot of time off after a grueling season in Europe.
