Ray Allen is leaning to signing with the Cavs, according to the Boston Globe.

He is expected to have MRIs on his legs to make sure they're healthy, so nothing will be official until after Thursday. Allen will be entering his 19th season and looked as healthy as ever with the Heat in 2013-14. He'll likely see minutes around 20 per game with the Cavs.

Nuggets signed Jusuf Nurkic to a deal.

He's expected to stay with the Nuggets this season and his salary should be around $1.7 million. Nurkic will be the No. 3 center on the depth chart and will not be in the rotation to start the season.

Jameer Nelson has committed to signing with the Mavericks, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It's been expected for a couple days now and Nelson will add some depth to the Mavs. They're expected to use Nelson, Devin Harris and Raymond Felton as a three-point guard rotation while they will also spell Monta Ellis. The Mavs are going to have one of the smallest backcourts in the NBA, so it'll be of the utmost importance that Tyson Chandler stays healthy. Nelson is only a late-round flier in standard leagues right now.

The Mavericks have reached an agreement with Al-Farouq Aminu worth $2.1 million over two years, according to CSNNW.com.

They expressed interest in Aminu back on July 1 and they were finally able to get their man. The Mavs desperately need some size on the wings with their very small backcourt, so Aminu fits the bill at 6'9". This is also a big win for them after the debacle with Rashard Lewis' knee. Aminu will likely play both forward spots off the bench, but he's not going to get enough shots to matter in most fantasy leagues.

Erick Green will sign with the Nuggets.

He was outstanding in Vegas with an effective field goal percentage of 55.1, averaging 16.6 points, 3.0 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.4 triples. Green and backcourt mate Gary Harris complemented each other very well in Vegas, but both will have a tough time getting significant minutes. Green is likely going to be up and down in the D-League this season, but he has a chance to be the No. 3 point guard on the depth chart.

P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

Suns sign G/F P.J. Tucker.

It's a great signing for the Suns at three years for $16.5 million. Tucker had a breakout offensive season last year, averaging a career-high 9.4 points, 6.5 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.9 triples. He saw 30.7 minutes per game last season, but that number may come down a bit given how well rookie T.J. Warren fared in Las Vegas.

The Celtics are ready to move on from their pursuit of Kevin Love, according to CSNNE.com.

They don't have the ammunition to hang with teams like the Bulls or Cavs. Excluding Rajon Rondo's expiring contract, their inability to add a player to some draft picks basically takes them out of the running. Based on that, it would appear Rondo is going to be traded at some point. Considering he didn't play well last season, the sense around the team is that they'll let him build some value in the early part of the season.

Ray Allen is expected to get MRIs on his legs before making a decision on his retirement.

He didn't look like a guy who was drafted in 1996 last season and it would be a surprise to see him retire at this point. Allen is getting some interest from the Cavs, Rockets and Heat as a bench scorer. He will be back in the USA on Thursday after a trip to China.

The Pelicans waived G/F Omri Casspi.

The writing has been on the wall for a while here with his contract becoming guaranteed on Aug. 1. Casspi had a solid preseason in Houston last season, but couldn't get his 2013-14 regular season off the ground. He'll get a camp invite somewhere.
Jul 23 - 5:14 PM

The Rockets signed Clint Capela on Wednesday.

The terms of the deal are not disclosed, but this confirms he won't be going overseas. Capela did not play at summer league and he's a bit of a wild card, but he has some length and has some potential. He'll likely be getting a lot of his run in the D-League.
Jul 23 - 4:33 PM

Knicks waive G/F Shannon Brown.

They signed him for the rest of the 2013-14 regular season back on Mar. 20 and he was on their summer league team, but he had no real chance to make the team. Brown should wind up getting a camp invite somewhere, but not doing much in summer league certainly hurts his chances of making a team.
Jul 23 - 4:23 PM

The Cavs expect to receive Andrew Wiggins' signed contract on Thursday.

That will start the clock for the Cavs to trade him within 30 days. They are obviously positioning themselves to make a move based on Tuesday's deal of acquiring three non-guaranteed deals in exchange for Carrick Felix, so Wiggins could wind up on the Wolves. Of course, they're saying Wiggins isn't available.
Jul 23 - 4:04 PM

Taj Gibson said he was never told he'd start and would have no problem coming off the bench.

The Bulls have a good problem to have with too many big men, and all of them are capable of playing power forward. With Pau Gasol likely to start, Gibson projects as a second-unit guy and he probably won't be eating up the majority of the fourth-quarter minutes at power forward like last season. Things were really looking up for a Gibson breakout a few weeks ago, but that seems a bit more unlikely now.
Jul 23 - 4:00 PM

Bulls sign G Aaron Brooks.

The deal had been reported last week and became official for the third-string point guard. "You never know what’s going to happen," Brooks said. "I enjoyed some success this past year when I got the opportunity to play. I think they just want me to come in, work hard, and help push everyone." He won't be worth drafting in almost any league.

Cavs sign G Joe Harris.

It's a three-year deal for a total of $2.7 million. The Cavs could wind up with a shallow team due to having so much money committed to their starting lineup, but Harris is still very unlikely to make it into the rotation.
