Rudy Gay said that he will still be committed to the Kings if they don't trade him before the season starts.

"I've always been committed to the team; that's never been a problem with me," Gay said. "I've always been committed to the city, the team, [and] my teammates. I've never shutdown - I've never shutdown on my teammates. That'll never be a problem. I'm a professional, I've been professional." Gay recently met with GM Vlade Divac, and while he denied that he made a trade request, it still seems likely that he will be moved. For what it's worth, a trade would likely hurt his value.

Jimmy Butler believes that he will be a good fit next to Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.

"There are multiple ways to score the basketball. I don’t get into analytics and the numbers," Butler said. "I think D-Wade has put the ball in the basket for a lot of years. He’s a great player because of the way he scores the ball. I don’t think you can call him a non shooter because he can definitely shoot the ball. Rondo, call him what you want, but he’s effective at what he does." Butler's usage rate will likely drop playing next to Wade and Rondo, but he's still locked in as a solid target in the second round.

The Heat could still bring in Beno Udrih for training camp according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The Heat currently have 18 players on the books and have four players capable of playing the point in Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson, Briante Weber and Josh Richardson. Udrih will likely explore other options before committing to the Heat's training camp. The 34-year-old veteran shouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues next season.

Miami reporter Ira Winderman said the Heat "quite literally could not even give [Josh] McRoberts away."

The Heat tried to get his contract off the books in order to have more cap space to spend on Dwyane Wade, but were unable to find any suitors. McRoberts has two more years left on his deal, but the Heat will be hoping that he declines his player option for the 2017-18 season. McRoberts' role next season hinges on the health of Chris Bosh (blood clots).

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson spoke highly of Justin Hamilton and said he views him as a stretch five.

"We thought Justin had a fantastic season over in Valencia," Atkinson said. "He's a stretch five, he can extend the floor from 3-point range. But he's more than a stretch five, because he's a tough guy. He knows how to play inside and he knows how to finish around the basket." They agreed to a deal on July 1, so clearly the Nets are high on him. If the Nets end up trading Brook Lopez, Hamilton could be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Coach Frank Vogel said he likes the idea of Nikola Vucevic shooting 3-pointers.

"I won't put that on him if he's not comfortable," Vogel said about Vucevic shooting treys. The 25-year-old big man has made a grand total of seven 3-pointers in his career, so this idea is uncharted territory. Vucevic is a terrific midrange shooter and his low-post game will be very important to the Orlando offense. Even with possible trade rumors, Vooch is still an early-round target.

Rudy Gay has met with general manager Vlade Divac since his comments on Monday, according to Sean Cunningham of ABC10.

Gay commented on the lack of communication from the Kings, so credit goes to Divac for reaching out and getting a meeting. The 29-year-old forward denied that he made a trade request, but his comments suggest he's going to be traded. He'll be a risky fantasy pick in the middle rounds.

God Shammgod joined the Mavericks' staff as assistant of player development.

The Providence star from 1995-97 would've have been an Twitter sensation for his ball-handling in college, but obviously Twitter wasn't around in the late 1990s. Shammgod played just two games in the NBA.

Flip Murray said he wants to make an NBA comeback.

He's 36 years old and hasn't been in the league since he was a camp invite for the Grizzlies back in 2012 -- he didn't get any playing time in preseason. Murray said he doesn't mind playing in the D-League, and also said he could play in Turkey, Ukraine or Lebanon.

Von Wafer took to Twitter to beg for another opportunity to get back into the NBA.

"I'm not ashamed to get on social media and beg for an opportunity back in the NBA," Wafer posted to his Twitter account. "I don't care about nothing, just give me an opportunity." Wafer hasn't played at the NBA level since the 2011-12 season, and he's been trying to make it back ever since. Odds are his plea will fall upon deaf ears.

David Lee - F/C - Spurs

David Lee has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3.2 million deal with the Spurs, with the second year being a player option.

Lee will earn limited minutes in San Antonio backing up both LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol, which is far from ideal from a fantasy perspective. Lee's days of being a relevant name in standard leagues are behind him.

The Bulls have officially signed G Spencer Dinwiddie.

Dinwiddie will be competing for reserve minutes with Jerian Grant, meaning that his fantasy value will be non-existent in most leagues.

Pat Riley believes that Dion Waiters will be a good fit on the Heat's roster, and that he will add a "great dimension" for the club at the shooting guard position.

"Dion is not a Room Exception player. He wanted to play for the Miami Heat and chose to forgo other more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization.," said Riley. "Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster. He will add a great dimension for us at the off-guard spot." Waiters will be competing with Josh Richardson for the starting two-guard spot in Miami, but he reportedly has the inside track to land the gig. His value will be better in points leagues.

Doc Rivers stated during a recent interview that he still doesn't know if Paul Pierce will play next season.

"If Paul decides to retire then we're going to make sure that Boston picks him up for one day and he retires a Celtic because that's what he should retire as," Rivers said. "So we have all that in place. We just don't know what he's going to do. I think Paul's going back and forth on it, and I want to give him room." For what it's worth, we've seen two reports indicating that Pierce intends to suit up for his 19th NBA season, but he won't be a fantasy asset anywhere.
