Chris Paul struggled during the Rockets' Game 1 victory on Sunday, finishing 5-of-14 from the field for 14 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals.

CP3 committed six turnovers including a critical miscue with 8.7 seconds left in a three-point game. Only once during the regular season did he have more turnovers than assists, and this is also the second time all season that he's made one or fewer triples on at least six attempts. He sat out six of Houston's final 11 games to rest and allow a sore left hip to fully heal, so maybe he was just scraping off some rust. We're anticipating a more typical performance during Game 2 on Wednesday.

ESPN is reporting that the Raptors are finalizing a deal to acquire Kawhi Leonard in a trade package that includes DeMar DeRozan.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Haynes are reporting that an agreement in principle could be reached as soon as Wednesday and that "Leonard and DeRozan are both aware that an agreement could be imminent, and neither is expressing enthusiasm for the deal." In fact, Hayes tweeted that Leonard "has no desire to play in Toronto." The Spurs and Raps have been involved in trade talks for two weeks, with multiple packages being discussed. However, Hayes says that DeRozan met with the Toronto front office in Vegas during summer league and was told he would not be traded. We should have a resolution to this ongoing saga soon.

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.

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.
Jul 17 - 6:22 PM

Wendell Carter Jr. has been named to the All-NBA Summer League First Team.

Carter Jr. looked like a man amongst boys at Summer League, chipping in averages of 14.6 points, 9.4 boards, 1.6 dimes and 2.6 swats per contest on 55% shooting, and the hype train will be humming for him as we approach draft day. Josh Hart, Kevin Knox, Collin Sexton and Christian Wood were also named to the All-NBA Summer League First Team on Tuesday.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne are reporting that Kawhi Leonard is "seriously considering" participating in Team USA's minicamp in Las Vegas next week.

This news is notable for several reasons. First and foremost, this would be a chance for Leonard to show that he has finally healed from the crippling quadriceps injury that cut short his 2017-18 season. That could have an impact on what teams are willing to give up in a trade for him this offseason. In addition, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is the head coach for Team USA. Pop and Kawhi on the same sideline could potentially lead to some awkwardness. San Antonio is likely hoping that it allows Kawhi and Pop to mend fences. Stay tuned.
