The Nets have interest in unrestricted free agent Jared Sullinger, but according to sources of Anthony Puccio of the Nets Daily, there are rumblings that Sullinger could be headed to China.

The Nets actually have a decent amount of cap space available, so they could potentially make a competitive offer to Sullinger, but he'd be able to be more of a focal point of the offense in China. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out, but if Sullinger is awarded a "show-me" deal by Brooklyn, he could start making blips on the deep league radar.

Kemba Walker (knee surgery) will not play in an NBA Africa exhibition game next month.

Walker was initially expected to be a captain on the World Team for the NBA's Basketball without Borders game in Africa, but he's going to be withheld from competing as a "precaution." Walker underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee back in May and was initially given a six-week timetable, so while he won't be competing in this exhibition game overseas, he should be fine when training camp rolls around in September.

The Bucks are reportedly actively shopping John Henson.

Henson has always been ripe with potential as a guy that can rack up the swats at an elite level, but Jason Kidd has never allowed him to average more than 20 minutes a night. Per-36 minutes last season, Henson produced averages of 12.6 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per contest, so he could be a serious factor in fantasy hoops if he lands in the right situation.

The Bucks are reportedly actively shopping Greg Monroe and John Henson.

Both Monroe and Henson's names have floated around in trade rumors for years now, but maybe they'll finally be able to find a taker for Monroe now that he's on the final year of his contract. Henson still has three years left on his deal but at the relatively moderate price of $31.7 million. Both these guys would be better served outside of Milwaukee, and if the Bucks are able to move both of them, that would open up a ton of minutes for Thon Maker.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 is reporting that Josh Jackson won't be included in any potential deal for Kyrie Irving.

There have already been reports linking Irving to the Suns in exchange for Bledsoe and a collection of picks and/or prospects, but ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said the Suns have reassured Jackson of their intention to keep him. The two-way forward showcased his upside at the Summer League with 17.4 points, 9.2 boards, 1.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks per game and is a dark horse to lead all rookies in minutes because of his ability to play multiple positions.

Ian Clark - G -

Ian Clark is reportedly no longer an option for the Lakers.

The Lakers got their backup point guard with the Tyler Ennis signing, so there's no need for them to pursue a deal with Clark. He should be able to find a contract somewhere after playing well in limited minutes with the Warriors last season, but Clark won't be a name worth monitoring in fantasy hoops.
Jul 25 - 6:24 PM

Arron Afflalo has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Magic.

Afflalo actually had some of his best statistical seasons wearing an Orlando jersey, but don't expect him to replicate his success from his 2013-14 campaign during the 2017-18 season. Afflalo will likely serve in a sixth man-like role, backing up Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross, but his minutes will likely be in the 20s on most nights which won't be enough floor time for him to make a difference in most leagues. The arrival of Afflalo and Jonathon Simmons isn't great news for Mario Hezonja.

Brandon Knight reportedly tore the ACL in his left knee and he's in danger of missing the entire 2017-18 season.

Knight suffered the ACL tear while playing in a pro-am game last week in Miami and he's expected to have surgery on Friday, at which point we should get a firm timetable on his recovery. Given the current direction of the Suns' franchise, they may consider outright waiving Knight if they're unable to find a trade partner willing to take on his contract worth roughly $44 million over the next three seasons. Obviously, Knight won't be worth targeting in any format on draft day.

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

The Jazz have officially re-signed Joe Ingles.

With the departure of Gordon Hayward, the starting small forward spot in Utah is up for grabs, so it'll be interesting if he can beat out Joe Johnson and Thabo Sefolosha for that spot over the course of training camp. Through 26 games as a starter last season, Ingles put forth averages of 9.3 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.6 steals per game on 46.6 percent shooting, so he could be worth a late-round pick on draft day if he does indeed secure the starting small forward position.

Tyler Ennis has agreed to a two-year deal with the Lakers for the veteran's minimum.

Ennis will serve as the third-string point guard on the roster, and perhaps he'll have a bit of a mentorship role with Lonzo Ball, but he won't be on the floor enough to have any sort of impact in fantasy hoops. Ennis' contract carries a team option on Year-2, which gives the Lakers some more flexibility for free agency in 2018.
Jul 25 - 4:42 PM

The Raptors have signed Lorenzo Brown to a two-way contract.

Brown will be competing for the third-string point guard spot over the course of training camp, but even if he makes the regular-season roster, he'll remain a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Jul 25 - 3:14 PM

Andrew Nicholson has been sent to the Trail Blazers in exchange for Allen Crabbe.

Nicholson was sent to Portland simply to make the numbers work, but the Trail Blazers are fully expected to waive and stretch Nicholson's contract once the trade goes through. Essentially this move was done to open up a roster spot and save Portland roughly $60 million on their tax bill, but Nicholson was never a part of their future plans.
Jul 25 - 2:42 PM

Allen Crabbe has been traded to the Nets for Andrew Nicholson.

The Nets have had a clear interest in Crabbe for a while now, and now they'll finally get their man after trying to steal him away from Portland as a restricted free agent last summer with a four-year deal worth $75 million. Crabbe will have a good chance to start with the Nets next season, and he'll look to improve upon his numbers from his 2016-17 campaign in which he produced averages of 10.7 points and 1.7 triples per game on 46.8 percent shooting. He's lights out from beyond the arc, but unless he can improve on the defensive stats, he won't be much more than a late-round guy.
Jul 25 - 2:41 PM

The Pelicans have waived PG Quinn Cook.

He was owed a non-guaranteed $1.3 million for 2017-18, but the Pelicans don't need him after signing Rajon Rondo and drafting Frank Jackson. Cook will be looking for a training camp invite somewhere, but he's likely headed to the G-League or overseas.

The Pelicans have waived forward Axel Toupane.

After recently agreeing to deals with forwards Darius Miller and Jalen Jones, it was inevitable that the Pelicans weren't bringing back Toupane. The two-way wing will be looking for a training camp invite.
