The Clippers have signed G Tyrone Wallace.

The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but this is likely just a camp invite for the No. 60 overall pick from the 2016 NBA draft. The Clippers have plenty of depth at the point guard position, so Wallace will more than likely spend most of the 2017-18 season with Los Angeles' G-League affiliate.

The Knicks reportedly have no interest in including Kristaps Porzingis in a package for Kyrie Irving.

"[Knicks president] Steve Mills and [Knicks general manager] Scott Perry on the record were very clear that Kristaps was part of the future,’’ an anonymous source to Newsweek said in reference to comments made last month by both executives. "In all the discussions since then — there were other rumors before that Cleveland would want Kristaps — and it didn’t seem that [the Knicks] were interested at all in a conversation." The Knicks don't appear to be very willing to put together an enticing offer for Irving, so Uncle Drew winding up in New York seems like an unlikely scenario.

The Warriors have signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed deal.

This is a camp invite for Niang, but he'll likely be spending most of the 2017-18 season with Golden State's G-League affiliate.

Tayshaun Prince has accepted a front office role with the Grizzlies.

He wasn't ready to retire, but couldn't find any work as a player. Prince will now serve as a special assistant to Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace. He played with the Grizzlies from 2013-15 and owns career averages of 11.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

Ben Moore signed a training camp deal with the Pacers.

An undrafted senior out of SMU, Moore averaged 11.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks last season. According to the Pacers, he's not expected to make the 15-man roster and will play with their G-League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Myles Turner said he expects the Pacers to be in the playoffs next season.

"A lot of people look at us as young team that’s going to rebuild, but we’re a young team that’s trying to compete," said Turner. "We’ve got a lot of guys who can come in and make an impact right away. I expect to make the playoffs this year." This is what he's supposed to say, but the reality is that it will be tough for Indiana to compete out East after losing Paul George this offseason. However, the departure of PG-13 should open up a ton of opportunity for Turner, so he should easily be able to flirt with top-20 value next season.

The Indiana Pacers announced they have signed Damien Wilkins.

It was reported back in late July that Indy was going to ink Wilkins to a non-guaranteed, one-year deal and it became official on Tuesday. Wilkins, who is 37, hasn't played in an NBA game since April of 2013. Even if he does end up making the 15-man roster, it is unlikely he cracks the Pacers rotation. Thus, Wilkins can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

The Celtics have expressed interest in Kyrie Irving but have not yet made a formal offer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Cavs are determined to get back a young, promising player in any potential Irving trade, as they are unsure if LeBron James will re-sign next summer. The Celtic they are reportedly keen on is Jayson Tatum. Boston certainly has the assets to make a very tempting offer, but the fact that the two teams are likely to meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals complicates the situation. Wojnarowski believes the Cavs may wait until September before engaging in "aggressive conversations."

Russell Westbrook and Paul George have been working out together this week in Los Angeles.

They have been joined by several other Thunder players, including Jerami Grant, Kyle Singler, Semaj Christon and Doug McDermott, at a gym on the UCLA campus. Both Westbrook and George will have to adjust their games and sacrifice a bit offensively next season. Westbrook's record-breaking usage rate will have to come back down to earth a bit. George will also attempt fewer shots playing alongside the league's reigning MVP and leading scorer.

Forward Kyle Wiltjer has agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Raptors.

Wiltjer played sparingly for the Rockets last season, scoring a total of 13 points in just 44 minutes. However, he did put up impressive numbers in the D-League, averaging 20.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.7 3-pointers in 35.9 minutes over 22 games. He has a chance to make Toronto's final 15-man roster, but is unlikely to crack the rotation next season.

Norris Cole has signed a one-year deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Euroleague.

It was reported yesterday that Maccabi was offering Cole $700,000. It's still possible that Cole could return to the NBA late in the 2017-18 campaign, after the Euroleague season ends.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kristaps Porzingis has emerged as a "primary target" for Cleveland as they consider possible trade scenarios involving Kyrie Irving.

Wojnarowski notes the Knicks are not currently interested and would only consider such a trade if the Cavs were also willing to take back Joakim Noah's contract. However, Woj does state that New York may consider moving KP at some point if the relationship between Porzingis and the team doesn't improve. "There continues to be distance between Porzingis and the organization, and how the Knicks truly value Porzingis' future could become clearer once they're together to begin the season," writes Wojnarowski.

Julyan Stone has been granted his release from Italian club Reyer Venezia.

This means he's free to sign with the Hornets later this week. The deal is expected to be for two years at the veteran's minimum. Stone will be the third-string PG in Charlotte behind Kemba Walker and Michael Carter-Williams and probably won't be in the rotation on opening night, especially if Malik Monk proves he can play some PG.

The NBA has officially released the schedule for the 2017-18 season.

For the first time in NBA history, no team will be going through the gauntlet of playing four games in five nights, and there will also be a 12 percent reduction in back-to-back sets, which will hopefully result in fewer injuries and random rest days around the league. The NBA also protected their nationally televised games by ensuring that no team will be on a back-to-back set or be going through a five games in seven nights scenario.

Jarrett Allen, who missed the Summer League with a hip injury, said he's back working out with teammates and coaches.

This is a sign that he should be good to go for training camp. Allen is in one of the best spots for rookies, as the Nets are rebuilding and his only competition for minutes right now is Timofey Mozgov and his bloated contract. "It’s definitely an opportunity,’’ Allen said. "A lot of rookies aren’t in the same position that I am, to be able to come in and play immediately or gets minutes like I will. So it’s nothing but good for me." A 6'10" big man with a 7'5" wingspan, Allen is a sleeper late in drafts for his shot-blocking prowess and ability to finish around the rim.
