Devin Harris (toe) said he expects to start light running this week.

He added his thumb is completely healed. Harris had surgery on his toe in May and is fully expected to be ready for camp. The Mavs used Harris more at shooting guard last season, which figures to be the case next year, as well. He won't be a fantasy target in almost all leagues.

Deron Williams admitted that he wanted to sign a longer deal in Dallas.

"We'll see how it goes. It is what it is," Williams said. "For sure, I wanted to be back. I felt like I had some unfinished business at the end of last year the way things ended and I wasn't able to be on the court. Hopefully I'll stay healthy because I'm excited about this team." He signed a one-year, $10 million deal to return as the starting PG, and he's expected to be 100 percent for training camp after recovering from a sports hernia. He averaged 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers last season, and with a similar role on the cards, he will be a late-round target in standard leagues.

The Utah Jazz have officially waived PG Kendall Marshall.

He was a member of the Jazz for less than two hours after the 76ers traded him for Tibor Pleiss on Friday morning. Marshall will be a free agent if he clears waivers and could get a training camp invite, but he's not worth monitoring in fantasy leagues until further notice.

The 76ers haven't decided if they will keep Tibor Pleiss or waive him according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

They simply have too many bigs on their roster as it is, but it sounds like they took Pleiss from Utah for the cash and second-round picks. He won't have fantasy value if he stays in Philly.

Joel Bolomboy is expected to make the 15-man roster in Utah following the trade of Tibor Pleiss to Philly.

His $600,000 salary for the 2016-17 season is fully guaranteed, so this isn't a surprise. Bolomboy will be behind Derrick Favors and Trey Lyles on the depth chart, so he likely won't be in the rotation on opening night.

Tibor Pleiss has been traded to the 76ers along with two second-round picks and cash in exchange for Kendall Marshall.

The Jazz are simply clearing up some salary cap space because they plan on waiving Marshall. The last thing Philly needs is another big in their loaded frontcourt, so Pleiss wouldn't be in the rotation barring a roster move.

Kendall Marshall has been traded to the Jazz in exchange for Tibor Pleiss, two second-round picks and cash.

The Jazz are planing on waiving Marshall before his $2 million contract becomes guaranteed on Saturday, so he's going to be a free agent. There are a few teams around the league that are still in need of a backup PG, so he should be able to draw some interest. He's off the fantasy radar for now.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Kevin Seraphin is still hoping to find another job in the NBA despite drawing interest from FC Barcelona.

The 26-year-old big man clearly hasn't generated much interest around the NBA after a quiet season in New York and he's running out of time. We'll keep an eye on this, but it's doubtful that Seraphin will land in a situation that will allow him to hold standard-league fantasy value.

Sim Bhullar has signed a deal with Da Cin in Taiwan.

The 7'5" center spent last season in the D-League, averaging 9.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. His conditioning is still a major concern and that will make it tough for him to work his way back to the NBA.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Spurs are working on a deal to bring Nicolas Laprovittola to the NBA.

The 26-year-old PG went undrafted in 2012, but he must have caught the Spurs' eye in Rio with the Argentinian national team. Laprovittola played in Spain last season and averaged 13.8 points, 4.4 assists, 2.9 boards, 1.6 steals and 2.1 treys, and he would add some depth behind Tony Parker and Patty Mills if he can come to terms on a deal with San Antonio.
Aug 26 - 9:33 AM

Adonis Thomas has officially signed a one-year deal with Scandone Avellino in Italy.

He suffered a season-ending wrist injury in the D-League last season, but he was putting up averages of 17.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game before he went down. He's just 23 years old, so he could generate some NBA interest if he has a strong campaign overseas.

Semih Erden re-signed with Darussafaka of Turkey on a one-year deal.

He turned 30 in July, so we've likely seen the last of him in the NBA.

Coach Dave Joerger said Matt Barnes can be a "terrific" power forward.

This isn't a surprise with how Joerger used Barnes a ton at the four in their Memphis days. On top of the minutes at the four, Barnes should see a good chunk of minutes at the three, especially with the Rudy Gay trade rumors. Barnes has seen some solid fantasy numbers when he's rolling, so he's a sneaky late-round flier in standard leagues.

Coach Dave Joerger said he’s looking for Ben McLemore to step up.

Joerger said he’s "put his arm around" McLemore, and added how the guard had a tough road due to having so many coaches to start his career. The 23-year-old guard was the subject of trade rumors during NBA Draft season, but it would appear Joerger is going to give him a chance to redeem himself. The No. 7 pick of the 2013 draft has a ton of work to do to shake off the rough start to his career.
Aug 25 - 7:18 PM

Coach Dave Joerger said he didn’t want to play Rudy Gay at power forward a lot.

Gay saw a ton of minutes at the four last season with the Kings going small as they led the NBA in pace. There are also a ton of trade rumors surrounding Gay, so that might be the most-likely outcome here. The 30-year-old forward carries a little more risk in fantasy leagues than in previous years.
