General manager Sean Marks said the Nets still have a "long, long way to go" and that he's not "too focused" on the playoffs.

"We’re obviously making steps that everybody can see," Marks said. "We are going younger, we got a youth movement here, we’ve got guys that are versatile and still have a lot of upside." Like the Suns, the Nets are openly saying they're going to lean on their younger guys and are basically saying player development trumps a postseason run. We could see more minutes going to guys like Jarrett Allen late in the season.

Terrance Ferguson agreed to his four-year rookie scale deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

It's unusual for a first-round pick to take this long on signing a deal, but he finally received clearance from FIBA to sign with OKC. The rookie's outlook doesn't look as great today as it does when he was drafted because the Thunder added Paul George. Ferguson will likely be spending most of his time with the OKC Blue in the G League.

The Thunder remain "cautiously optimistic" on Russell Westbrook signing his max extension, according to Fred Katz of The Norman Transcript.

That's not really saying much, but the organization has to feel good about their last offseason before Westbrook's contract year. There will be plenty of rumors surrounding the reigning MVP, especially with his UCLA tie to Los Angeles. It certainly does help to have Paul George around, but Westbrook likely won't be able to match his all-time record for usage rate in a season.

P.J. Dozier has agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Mavericks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

The South Carolina product was with the Lakers in Las Vegas, but an ankle sprain cut his event short. Dozier was undrafted last month after he averaged 13.9 points per game in his junior season. He'll be on the roster bubble in October.

JaVale McGee has agreed to re-sign with the Warriors, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

Nick Young and JaVale McGee are together again. McGee had a simple role with the Dubs as a rim-runner, rim protector, and catching some lobs. He had some very important minutes in the postseason and will look to get some backup minutes again. After winning the title last year, the Warriors sure do know how to keep their team together.

The Lakers signed Thomas Bryant on a two-year deal.

He played really well for the Lakers as a big-bodied paint filler in summer league, and his 7'6" wingspan helped protect the paint. Bryant did have some conditioning concerns and the Lakers did play him in shorter stints, but giving him a guarantee for this year with a team option for next year is an encouraging sign for the Indiana product.

Magic sign F/C Marreese Speights.

The Magic were dying for a third center and they'll bring the former Florida Gator back to the Sunshine State. Speights could be used situationally for the Magic to help space the floor, but he's unlikely to see much playing time on his new team.

Phil Pressey signed with FCB Barcelona.

He wasn't in the NBA last season and hasn't started a game since the 2013-14 season. Pressey's lack of size was always a problem in the NBA and it explains why he made just 34.1 percent from the field in his NBA career. He should have some success in Spain, though.

Antonius Cleveland has agreed to a deal with the Warriors.

It's likely a training camp deal or a two-way contract, but the undrafted guard out of Southeast Missouri State has basically no shot of cracking the 15-man roster. Expect Cleveland to end up in the G-League.

Jabari Parker (knee) said he's attacking his rehab and is feeling great.

"I tell myself every day I couldn't be in a better situation because it's going to make me a great man at the end of the day," he said. "It's going to make me mentally tough and it's going to help me for the future." Parker said he doesn't want to return until he's 100 percent and added that he doesn't have a target date in mind yet. For what it's worth, coach Jason Kidd said earlier this month that he's expecting him back in February. He will also be limited upon his return and this is his second torn ACL in three years, so fantasy owners will have to be patient with him.

Mario Chalmers only has $25,000 of guaranteed money with his one-year, $2.1 million deal.

You would think he's a lock to make the 15-man roster in Memphis, but it's anybody's guess as to how he will look coming off a major Achilles injury. He's also no spring chicken at the age of 31. If Chalmers can prove his worth in camp, he will compete with Wade Baldwin for the backup PG job behind Mike Conley. He's not on the standard-league radar and may be limited to start the season.

Nikola Mirotic won't play for Spain at Eurobasket this summer.

The report adds that Mirotic is still negotiating with the Bulls over a new contract, but nothing is imminent for now. He's a restricted free agent, but we haven't heard of much interest from other teams. If he does re-sign in Chicago, Mirotic will compete with Bobby Portis for the starting power forward role, but Lauri Markkanen could be in the mix as well. While he has great upside in fantasy, he's also very volatile and known for giving his fantasy owners headaches.

According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, the Cavaliers have unsuccessfully tried to contract Kyrie Irving since his trade request.

Lloyd adds that Irving isn't talking to anyone from the organization. New general manager Koby Altman called the situation "fluid" at Wednesday's press conference, but it sure sounds like Irving is heading out the door. He's under contract for the next two seasons with a player option for the third, so expect the Cavs to hold out for the best possible package in return.
Jul 27 - 1:21 PM

Terrance Ferguson has finally obtained clearance from FIBA to sign with the Thunder.

This is why he wasn't available for the Summer League. Ferguson is the last unsigned first-round pick from this summer’s draft, but that should change in the near future now that he's cleared. The 19-year-old SG was underwhelming for the Adelaide 36ers in Australia with just 4.6 points per game, so he's a major project and likely won't be in the rotation on opening night.
Jul 27 - 12:21 PM

Khem Birch has signed a deal with the Magic.

The terms of the contract are not known yet, but it's likely a training camp deal or a two-way contract. The 25-year-old big man has no NBA experience and spent last season in Greece with Olympiacos, averaging 7.3 points and 5.6 boards.
