Brad Stevens revealed during a recent interview that the Celtics won't have an official timetable for Isaiah Thomas (hip) until he undergoes another scan in early-September.

"He has another follow-up and another scan in the early part of September," said Stevens of Thomas. "Obviously, it’s been a lot of appropriate rest, a lot of rehab. There have been some good strides here certainly in the last month or few weeks, but we’re not going to know that until after that early September timeframe." Thomas opted to let the labral tear in his right hip heal naturally, which has involved a fairly lengthy recovery period, but most reports up to this point have indicated that he'll be ready for camp.

The Magic have signed Adreian Payne to a two-way contract.

Payne will be there for training camp, but he'll spend most of the 2017-18 season in the G-League.

Steve Kerr expects to coach "all year" next season and "for many years to come."

"I’d love to say that I’m all better, but not the case. I’m feeling better, having a good summer, relaxing. But it’s just been an ongoing thing now for two years," said Kerr. "I fully expect to coach all year [next season]. That’s my expectation. And for many years to come." Severe headaches forced Kerr to the sidelines for the first half of the 2015-16 season, and he was again relegated to the sidelines for 11 games during the Dubs' 2017 playoff run, but it sounds like he's made enough progress so that this won't be an issue that requires him to take time off during the 2017-18 season.

O.J. Mayo said he's hoping to make a return to the NBA in 2018.

Mayo admitted to smoking marijuana and abusing a prescription pain medication that triggered a two-year ban from the NBA last year, but he can apply for reinstatement on July 1, 2018. He has been working out with other NBA players and has shed 25 pounds, but most importantly, it sounds like he's getting his life back on track. Mayo said he's interested in playing in China, Spain or Israel this fall, but he hasn't received any offers yet. He's only 29, but Mayo still faces an uphill battle to make it back to the league.

Wesley Matthews said he expects to showcase "a more all-around skillset" to lead the Mavs back to the playoffs.

"I want to be the most complete basketball player that I can be, and with the shooting slump that I had there were still ways that I had to be effective on the court," he said. "You know, energy, leadership and defense, that’s always going to be a part of it. But being able to get other guys shots and get other guys open, I take pride in that as well." Matthews averaged 12.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 treys last season, but shot an abysmal 38.8 percent from the field. He's reportedly in great shape and has been incorporating yoga into his offseason program, but Matthews is only worth a look late in drafts because he hasn't looked the same since his Achilles injury back in 2015.

The Magic have signed PG Troy Caupain.

An undrafted point guard out of Cincinnati, Caupain averaged 10.5 points with 4.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists during his senior season. The Magic do have an open roster spot, but this is likely a partially-guaranteed deal and he's far from a lock to make the opening night roster.

Nerlens Noel has fired his agent and will soon sign with Dan Fegan.

Noel hasn't been thrilled with what the Mavericks have offered him and is hoping that Fegan will pry a max contract offer out of Mark Cuban. The risk is huge with Noel struggling with knee trouble since he entered the league, and it doesn't help his case that most NBA teams are out of cap space. While a max deal seems unlikely, maybe Fegan will help speed up the process and land Noel a deal prior to training camp in September. Assuming he re-signs in Dallas, Noel will be a high-risk, high-reward option in the middle rounds.

Josh Smith - F -

According to Kelly Iko of ESPN, Josh Smith is "very interested" in a return to the Rockets.

Iko adds that a deal could be in the works soon, meaning the interest is mutual. Smith spent last season in China and played well with 18.8 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 blocks. However, he also attempted 7.8 triples per game, making 2.3 of them on a 28.9 percent clip. Smith has always taken a lot of heat for launching triples at will and his shot selection is one of the reasons his NBA career went downhill. The Rockets have been shopping Ryan Anderson, so Smith could be in the mix for minutes if he lands in Houston.
