Blake Griffin will not play for Team USA this summer at the FIBA World Cup in Spain.

"I want to focus and dedicate 100 percent of my energy on improving and preparing frmo the upcoming season with the Clippers," Griffin said. The Clippers were a bit of a letdown despite seeing Griffin having his best season, DeAndre Jordan breaking out, and Chris Paul becoming a more well-rounded scorer. Griffin's improved free throw shooting makes him a much more fantasy-friendly player to own, making him worth a look in the second round of upcoming drafts.

Pelicans sign G Jimmer Fredette.

He was very close to playing overseas, but the Pelicans will use him as an end-of-the-bench combo guard. Rookie Russ Smith looked phenomenal in summer league and he may have the inside track as the backup point guard behind Jrue Holiday. Fredette is off the radar in most leagues.

Chandler Parsons was added to the Team USA camp roster.

It's been a busy month for Parsons and he's now moved north to join the Dallas Mavericks. Parsons' uptempo style and perimeter game makes him a candidate to make the team, which is saying something for the former second-round draft pick.

DeMar DeRozan has been added to the Team USA camp roster.

The camp starts on Monday in Las Vegas. DeRozan had a breakout season for the Raptors and he thrived at putting the ball on the floor. He's not really an ideal fit around the sure things on the team since he's not an elite shooter. The Raptors will enter next season with the same group of players and should compete for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference.

Ray Allen has not decided on if he's going to play next season.

Obviously that means he hasn't decided on joining up with LeBron James and the Cavs. The Boston Globe reported that Allen is leaning to the Cavs, which is still the most-likely outcome. He'll be coming off the bench on just about any team and he probably won't get more than 10 shots per game.

John Wall will be participating in Team USA camp starting on Monday.

Earlier this month, he was not expected to be on the team, but now he's a very strong bet to play with them this summer. Wall grew as a point guard and not just a scorer this season, leading the NBA in total assists. He'll be one of the best point guards in the NBA for the next decade or so.

Rudy Gobert is expected to get more run with the French FIBA team.

Kevin Seraphin (knee) and Alexis Ajinca aren't going to play, so the team has already added Ian Mahinmi. Gobert was phenomenal at Las Vegas Summer League and how we'll be able to get a larger sample size to see if his improvement is for real. His footwork was vastly improved, leading to better rebounding and blocking. He's a good bet to take some of Enes Kanter's minutes.

The Phoenix Suns waived Dionte Christmas on Thursday.

Christmas has bounced around between the NBA and Euro-league play the past few seasons. He appeared in 27 games for the Suns last in 2013-2014, averaging only 2.3 points on 35.5 percent shooting. Considering he already has overseas experience, he may look to take his talents abroad if he does not earn a roster spot in the NBA.

Jeremy Pargo signed a two-year deal with Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv.

Pargo signed a two-year deal with CSKA Moscow last year, but is now jumping ship and rejoing Maccabi Tel Aviv. He helped Maccabi win the Israeli double-league and cup titles in 2011, and is now hoping to recapture his Euroleague success from a few years ago. He last played in the NBA in 2013 with Philadelphia, and it is unknown whether he plans to return to the NBA if given the opportunity.

The 76ers have signed point guard Pierre Jackson to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal.

He suffered a torn achilles on July 5th and is likely out for the regular season. Jackson has shown promise in his stints in the D-League, but his future in the NBA is now in doubt. It is a positive sign however, that the 76ers are willing to give Jackson a partially guaranteed deal despite his significant injury.

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Thursday the signing of number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins.

The most notable ramification of the signing is that Wiggins cannot be traded for 30 days. He remains the biggest trade chip in a potential offer for Kevin Love, but for now the hypothetical deal will have to be placed on hold. The Cavaliers also signed their second-round pick Joe Harris, but per league policy, contract details were not released.

Chandler Parsons said on KESN-FM 103.3 on Thursday that the Rockets told him they would match any offer he received in restricted free agency.

"Before this whole process started, they had told me ‘You’ve earned this," Parsons recalled. "You deserve this. Go and sign the best deal for your career. Just know in the back of your mind that we plan on matching.’ Throughout the process, I definitely thought they were gonna match the contract." The Rockets instead decided to let Parsons join the Mavericks on a three-year $46 million deal.

Erick Green's deal with the Denver Nuggets will be for three years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Green played overseas last season and had a stellar Vegas Summer League for the Nuggets where he averaged 16.6 points, 3.0 boards, 2.6 assists, and 1.2 steals. Despite his Summer League success, it will be tough for Green to crack the back court rotation in Denver next season.

Jameer Nelson and the Mavericks are expected to finalize a two-year, $6 million deal on Thursday, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The deal also contains a player option in its second year. The Mavericks have had a busy offseason, acquiring Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Chandler Parsons, and now inking Nelson for two years. It is still unclear what role he will play next season, but he will likely be part of a rotating point guard platoon.

Rip Hamilton said on Thursday that "there are opportunities for me... but I'm waiting for the right situation."

Hamilton also expressed his desire to play one more season in the NBA, saying "I think for me, personally, I have to see how my body responds after the summer. I want to play another year and hopefully get an opportunity to play on a team with a chance to win a title." Hamilton last played in the 2012-2013 season, where he averaged 9.8 points in 50 games played. It is unknown whether these opportunities will ever materialize for Hamilton, but he is clearly off fantasy radars moving forward.
