According to the New York Post, the Knicks are in talks with Chasson Randle.
The 6'1" point guard impressed the Knicks during the Orlando Summer League, averaging 18.3 points and 5.0 assists while shooting 47.6 percent from the field and 55.0 percent from 3-point range. The Knicks need a third-string PG behind Derrick Rose and Brandon Jennings, but they currently have 14 guaranteed contracts on the roster. The Knicks don't have any cap space, so the most they can offer him is a guaranteed minimum deal at $565,000 per.
Coty Clarke has signed a deal to play for Unics Kazan in Russia.
He had a couple 10-day contracts with the Celtics last season and was with the Wolves during the summer league. It's just a one-year deal, so we could see Clarke back in the summer league next year.
David Stockton has signed a three-year deal with Croatian team Cedevita Zagreb.
It's unclear if there is an NBA out clause in the deal, but the 25-year-old may not get another shot in the NBA for a long time.
DeMarcus Cousins scored 14 points with 15 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block against Argentina on Friday.
He looked awesome, especially under the boards. Cousins has been doing more yoga, which he announced after his "give me strength" tweet on NBA Draft night. The Kings are not looking to deal Cousins now and are hoping coach Dave Joerger will be the Boogie Whisperer.
Paul George made his return to Team USA action on Friday, scoring 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.
It was his first Team USA televised game since his horrific leg injury. George had a couple breakaway dunks and he justifiably took it easy on those. After the game on NBATV, he did add it was "eerie" for him to get back on the court and said there were a lot of emotions. George looked better than expected last year, especially early in the season. Even with the new players, he's still expected to have a great season with the vast majority of his minutes coming at small forward.
Kevin Durant lit it up against Argentina in a Team USA tune-up on Friday, scoring 23 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
It still hasn't sunk in yet that he's on the Warriors, has it? Durant was magnificent in this game, making 7-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a tidy 81.0 true shooting percentage. He did have a tweak to his leg in the second half, but it didn't cost him any playing time. His game is made for fantasy, so expect him to be elite even with a slight dip in usage next year.
Spurs sign F Livio Jean-Charles.
It's official for the 28th pick of the 2013 draft. Jean-Charles is 22 years old and lists at 6'9", but he averaged just 5.9 points per game for his French pro team last year. He won't be starting the year in the rotation.
General manager Ryan McDonough said chances are Alan Williams will be on the Suns to start the season.
"We told him to plan on being around our group and keep coming in to work out," McDonough said. "He’s a native Phoenician so he’s here most of the time. He spent a ton of time in the gym and I think you see the improvement in his body and game as well."He was terrific in Las Vegas, earning an All-NBA Summer League 2016 First Team nod and leading the event in rebounding. He's still unlikely to make the rotation.
