Chris McCullough said he's put on 13 pounds since the NBA Draft as he's been bulking up in advance of the regular season.

During a recent interview, the rookie added that he's been working on "right hooks, left hooks, ball-handling" as he continues his rehab from a torn ACL he suffered in January. While McCullough may develop into a rotational player for the Nets, he's stuck behind Thaddeus Young and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

The Mavericks are reportedly encouraged by what they've seen from Deron Williams this offseason.

Williams has looked quick and lean in informal AAC workouts, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas as the 31-year-old knows he has a lot to prove. While Williams will look for a fresh start in Dallas, he only averaged 13.0 points, 6.6 assists, and 3.5 rebounds in 68 games with the Nets last season and shouldn't be taken any earlier than the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Anthony Bennett said his recent improved play is due to a newfound confidence.

Bennett was asked about his recent strong play for the Canadian national team and answered that his attitude is making a difference. "[I'm] just playing with confidence, pretty much," the 22-year-old forward responded. "Just going out there, playing defense, running the court. Just doing the little things first and trying to make offense come to me." While Bennett's recent play has been encouraging, he still has a long way to go before he become relevant in standard fantasy leagues.

The Celtics have had preliminary contract talks with Jared Sullinger.

He's due for an extension to start the season or else he'll be a restricted free agent. Previous reports suggest Sullinger won't get an extension, which makes sense considering the Celtics just picked up Amir Johnson while David Lee is in a contract year. Sullinger losing weight is intriguing, but he's only a late-round pick.

The Lakers will sign Brazilian point guard Marcelo Huertas.

Some Samba to go with Mamba? Kidding aside, Huertas is 32 years old and is more of a pick-and-roll point guard, so that might help D'Angelo Russell's development. He's not worth drafting in almost any league.

Chuck Hayes will sign with the Clippers.

He only played 8.8 minutes per game with the Raptors last season and he's almost certainly not going to be in the rotation. Hayes is a good locker room guy and the Clippers are already really deep, so it's easy to like this small pickup.

The Bucks will sign Charlie Westbrook to a training camp deal.

He's from Milwaukee, so the Bucks gave him a chance to try and make the hometown team. Westbrook was playing in France last season.

Kelly Olynyk went through a full practice on Monday.

He looks to be over his knee issue and should definitely be 100 percent to start the season. However, Olynyk is suspended for the opener and his minutes will likely decrease with Amir Johnson and David Lee around.

Jim Buss called D'Angelo Russell a "potential superstar."

Explaining the decision to draft Russell, Buss explained the Lakers' thinking, "It was a long, long process that we decided to go with Russell. He's just very impressive. We saw an upside of being a potential superstar in the league." While Russell didn't look great in preseason, he took his struggles in stride, looked to make improvements and showed flashes of why the Lakers are so high on his future.

Andrew Nicholson is keeping the bigger picture in mind when it comes to his role with the Magic.

"You know, whatever it takes for us to be successful as a team, as a whole. I mean, people remember the wins as a team, not the individual stats and stuff. So as long as we keep winning, we're good," he said. A once intriguing fantasy commodity, Nicholson has fallen off a cliff now that he's been buried in Orlando's rotation. A trade is his best chance at resuscitating any value.

Victor Claver is reportedly finalizing a contract in Russia.

Claver was a first round pick in Portland, but he never really found his niche in the NBA.

Warriors GM Bob Myers said his team is "focused and motivated" to reach an extension with Festus Ezeli.

There was speculation that Ezeli could command upwards of $10 million annually on his next deal, so perhaps the two sides may find a little difficulty in coming together on common ground when it comes to the big man's value. He'll again serve as the primary backup behind Andrew Bogut for the 2015-16 season, which means he'll need a Bogut injury to be relevant in standard formats.

Omri Casspi said Willie Cauley-Stein's potential is "out the roof."

"I really see him being a lockdown defender 2 through 5 or 1 through 4. Basically, he can guard every position, which means a lot in today's game." Cauley-Stein will likely be limited to playing backup behind Kosta Koufos and DeMarcus Cousins during his first year, but the Kings won't be afraid to give him a bigger role if he proves capable of earning one early.

The Thunder have signed Talib Zanna to a non-guaranteed contract, sources told RealGM.

Zanna played for the Thunder's D-League team, so Oklahoma City will use his familiarity with the club for a body in training camp. Even in 30-team formats, Zanna is not a candidate for your fantasy team

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said he doesn't feel any added pressure now that he's signed a four-year, $52 million contract.

"This isn’t pressure. This is adding fuel to the fire. But as far as the pressure part? I’m comfortable in my own skin. I work as hard as I can every day," he said. Kidd-Gilchrist also added that he's not going to change the way he plays. While he is a core player in reality for Charlotte, MKG is not much of a fantasy option for owners in standard formats.
