Mitch McGary has lost close to 30 pounds this offseason.

"I’m still trying to get used to the change," McGary said. "I didn’t know I could jump this high." He showed it on Saturday with 13 rebounds, but he did have some clumsy mistakes. Still, McGary is really going to have a tough time getting consistent minutes with the big club.

Carlos Boozer is in on-going conversations with the Clippers, Spurs, Mavs and Raptors.

The Spurs are still aggressively pursuing David West, so that domino will likely have to fall before Boozer signs. The Clippers are still in scramble mode for a big man, but Boozer is not the greatest fit for the Clippers, unless they really think Blake Griffin can defend fives. Boozer won't have much fantasy value.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Nets

A trade sending Joe Johnson to the Cavaliers has become "stagnant," sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

The Nets were looking for another team to potentially take Anderson Varejao's contract, but they've been unsuccessful in that pursuit. For now, an Iso-Joe trade is in play but a long ways away from becoming a reality.

James Nunnally broke his thumb and is no longer with the Pacers summer league team.

It's a tough break for Nunnally, who will now have to wait for another opportunity to crack the NBA.

Justin Hamilton is reportedly drawing interest from the Pelicans, Suns, Knicks, Heat and Lakers.

Hamilton is an unrestricted free agent after the Wolves opted against giving the big man a qualifying offer, but Hamilton will probably have to settle for a non-guaranteed deal if he wants a real shot of making a final roster.

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

The Jazz are having 'ongoing conversations' with restricted free agent Joe Ingles.

Ingles' preference is to remain with the Jazz, and if the two sides can't agree to a new deal it's possible that Ingles simply accepts the qualifying offer that has been extended to him.

Kyle O'Quinn said that he plans to continue shooting corner 3's.

O'Quinn was asked to do that in Orlando last season and plans to continue it now that he's in New York with the Knicks. After attempting four three-pointers over his first two years combined, O'Quinn launched 43 long-range attempts last season. Although he connected at just a 27.9 percent rate, O'Quinn will keep working to expand his range.

Bradley Beal said that he'll continue to take midrange jumpers.

"That’s definitely a shot that, even though a lot of people in the NBA don’t like, I’m going to continue to work on it. It’s an open shot and I think you’re probably more open shooting that shot than a lot of other shots," Beal said. Kobe Bryant is nodding his head in approval. Beal is also spending time this offseason working on his handles as well as creating offense for his teammates

The Blazers are no longer interested in Rasual Butler, a source told the Oregonian.

After the Blazers were reported to have interest in the veteran, that notion was shot down almost immediately. It was fun while it lasted.

Marcus Thornton is on the Heat's free-agent radar, a source told the Miami Herald.

Thornton should certainly come cheap after an uneven season and Miami would be a good spot for the shooter to rehab his value. A capable floor-stretcher who could help provide insurance behind Dwyane Wade, it wouldn't be too shocking to see Thornton wind up in South Florida.

Of the Wizards' remaining free agents, Drew Gooden is the most likely to return, a source told CSN Washington.

Gooden developed into somewhat of a stretch-four for the Wizards and played a larger than expected role for the team, so with Paul Pierce's departure and Nene's constant health issues, Gooden could be an under-the-radar name to monitor if he does return to Washington.

Jordan Farmar has signed with Maccabi.

Farmar is familiar with the Israeli game and will once again head back overseas after failing to establish himself in the NBA upon returning. If healthy, Farmar could re-emerge on the NBA radar again before too long.

Nets sign F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

The rookie has signed his first NBA deal. After being traded to the Nets on draft day via Portland, Hollis-Jefferson projects as someone to watch from afar—not monitor closely—during summer league.
Jul 6 - 10:18 AM

The Mavericks have reached out to Jason Terry to gauge the veteran's interest in a potential reunion.

Dallas needs to find minimum salary players to fill out its roster after shopping on Rodeo Drive in free agency and the runway could be clearing for the JET to land one more time at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. Terry makes sense so long as he's healthy and capable of playing a real role in the rotation.

Kyle O'Quinn, who just agreed to a four-year deal with the Knicks, expressed his appreciation for his time with the Magic.

"I love everybody there [in Orlando]," he said. "I love my whole team: the GM on down to the guy that cleans the bathrooms. I loved everybody there, and I think it was a mutual feeling. It was the feeling that I loved every day coming to work." O'Quinn also admitted that the long-term deal played a big part in his decision to leave Orlando. The Magic will receive cash and the right to swap 2019 second-round picks in the sign-and-trade deal for O'Quinn.
