Knicks sign G Damyean Dotson.

It's a three-year deal with two years full guaranteed, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. Dotson was terrific in summer league for the Knicks with his 12.8 points per game and he may have a chance to make the roster. The Knicks do not have much cap space, so picking up this deal shows they have some faith in the second-round pick.

The Magic and Marreese Speights had a face-to-face meeting.

The Magic could really use another center and Speights should come fairly cheap. Speights likely won't be going back to the Clippers and he has also seen some interest from the Hawks, who may need a center more than any team.

The Kings will sign Jack Cooley.

Cooley had a really nice run in Las Vegas and even heard some MVP chants. We've seen Cooley have some big summer leagues before and it didn't really translate in the NBA.

The Hawks have claimed Nicolas Brussino off waivers.

The Mavs didn't bring him back, but the Hawks will likely be giving him a chance to make the team. Brussino did play well in Las Vegas Summer League and the Hawks do need another forward on their roster. He still may not be in the rotation.

Stanley Johnson said right now is his "time to shine."

He does benefit from the Marcus Morris trade and now Johnson is really the only Piston who is a traditional small forward. "Obviously coming off the year I had, having the opportunity to play extended minutes and a role that I aim to be at in my career, it’s going to be awesome," Johnson said. The Arizona product didn't really do much with his extra minutes in April, scoring just 5.8 points per game on 27.8 percent from the field in his 26.2 minutes. He's only a deep-league target for now.

Jared Sullinger is down to 285 pounds.

He was up to 320 pounds in 2015-16, and wasn't in the NBA during the 2016-17 season. Sullinger has changed his eating habits and has been eating vegan for about three weeks. Sullinger is trying to get back in the NBA and he should get a make-good deal to show up at an NBA camp.

The Kings are expected to sign Jack Cooley to a two-way contract.

Cooley played well for the Kings summer league squad earlier this month in Las Vegas. He averaged 9.2 points (on 64.0 percent shooting), 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 17.8 minutes over five games. He's bounced around overseas the last couple of years. Last season he played for MHP Risen Ludwigsburg in Germany. Cooley can be ignored in fantasy leagues, as he'll likely spend the majority of next season in the G-League.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News is reporting that Carmelo Anthony remains "focused on getting a deal done with Houston."

Once the news broke that Kyrie Irving had requested a trade from Cleveland, and that the Knicks were one of his preferred destinations, trade rumors involving Anthony immediately began to heat up. However, Melo has a no-trade clause, which means he has the final authority on any potential deal. It appears Anthony may not be willing to consider Cleveland as long as a trade with the Rockets remains a possibility.

Nate Robinson is hoping to return to the NBA next season.

Robinson has not been on an NBA roster since suiting up for two games with the Pelicans in October of 2015. Since then he has bounced around overseas and played in the D-League. Robinson has been active on social media recently, showing he still has plenty of life in his legs. However, it's unlikely he secures a spot in the NBA next season.

Derrick Rose isn't expected to decide where he will play next season until next week.

With the uncertainty surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Cavs, Rose may want to wait until that situation is resolved, as the Cavs may need a new starting point guard. The other teams Rose is reportedly considering are the Lakers, Bulls and Bucks. His fantasy value will be dependent on where he lands.

Nick Collison said that he is unsure if he will retire after the 2017-18 season.

Next season will be the 15th season for Collison with the Thunder franchise. His on-production has diminished in recent years, but Collison is still a respected veteran and leader in the locker room. From a fantasy perspective, he can be ignored in all leagues.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks have "strong interest" in trading for Kyrie Irving, but they are not willing to include Kristaps Porzingis in any potential deal.

Unlike Phil Jackson, the Knicks new front office tandem of president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry are not even considering moving Porzingis. They intend to build the franchise around New York's prized unicorn. However, Begley does report that the Knicks would consider including Carmelo Anthony and future first-round picks in a package for Irving. As the rumors surrounding Kyrie continue to swirl, the Knicks will definitely be in the mix.

John Wall has agreed to the designated player veteran exception with the Wizards for a total of $207 million through 2023.

Wall's extension includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker, per ESPN. Wall will be the franchise player for the Wizards and should contend for the league lead in dimes. One year after surgery on both knees, Wall should be set for a big season.

The Cavaliers are finalizing a deal to promote Koby Altman to general manager, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

The timing is obvious with the Cavs now dealing with the Kyrie Irving trade request. The ownership still has some issues to work out, but at least they're making progress up top.
Jul 21 - 6:31 PM

Regarding the Kyrie Irving trade demands, the Cavs were given four preferred landing spots: New York, Miami, San Antonio and Minnesota.

And this is the NBA offseason. It sounds like Irving is legitimate in his demands and not wanting to live under LeBron James' shadow. This is basically the third day of the "offseason" in the NBA, but it looks like chaos is in store for the Cavs this offseason -- maybe they should've brought their GM back. Expect a ton of Kyrie Irving rumors this summer.
