Robbie Hummel re-signed with the Wolves on a one-year deal.
The Wolves didn't extend him to a qualifying offer last month, but he still received a guaranteed contract at a shade under $1 million. Hummel still hasn't been able to get his career off the ground since suffering two ACL tears at Purdue and he is unlikely to be in the rotation this season.
The Hornets are not pursuing Shawn Marion.
The Mavericks are very unlikely to bring him back, so it's anyone's guess where he will wind up. Marion has hinted that he'd like to join a contender and now that it's already July 21 and he's without a team, money may be a lower priority.
The Pistons have signed Spencer Dinwiddie to a three-year deal.
An ACL tear ended his time at Colorado, but Dinwiddie is a very interesting case. On top of turning down a chance to go to Harvard, Dinwiddie has a nice skill set and could crack the rotation as soon as he's healthy. He's a first-round talent and we'll be watching his rehab leading into training camp.
The NBA will be placing a golden stripe on the back of jerseys for the 2014-15 season to honor the franchises that have won championships, however, the Thunder organization has elected to not wear the patch commemorating Seattle's 1979 title run.
The Seattle SuperSonics won a title in 1979, however the franchise has since been relocated and renamed in Oklahoma City. "As of right now, they are not wearing it," said Christopher Arena — the NBA’s vice president of outfitting, identity and equipment. "We have several teams who have a lineage that exists prior to the city that they’re in... Some teams embrace that past, some teams don’t. Whether it’s because of ownership changes or perhaps the lineage is too great of a distance or the team nickname changed or whatever it may be, that’s their decision."
Sasha Vujacic has been working out with Blake Griffin this summer with hopes of making a return to the NBA.
It's possible Vujacic receives some interest from Phil Jackson of the Knicks as he's a team player, and proficient in the triangle offense. However, he would figure to be an end-of-the-bench kind of guy, and he would not hold any fantasy value in a crowded New York backcourt. Stay tuned.
When Donald Sterling revoked the Sterling Family Trust on July 9, he triggered a process that could result in a default of nearly $500 million the Sterlings owe to three banks.
"I warned [Donald] that the revocation of the trusts would at some point lead to the default of our loans," Darren Schield, the CFO who manages the day-to-day operations of the Sterling' multi-billion dollar real estate empire testified. "I told him that the revocation would open up Pandora’s Box and there would be severe repercussions. We have to start selling our real estate. We have no choice. I don’t know if we could sell that many properties that quickly. Very likely it would be at reduced prices." Wednesday will be the final day of testimony, and Monday will be the closing arguments. Hopefully this won’t be a "story" much longer.
The Lakers officially re-signed Ryan Kelly to a two-year deal on Monday.
"[Kelly] did everything we asked of him as a rookie and showed great promise and potential," said GM Mitch Kupchak. Kelly had some nice stretches for the Lakers last season, but with Carlos Boozer, Julius Randle, and Ed Davis all in town, it will be very difficult for Kelly to crack the rotation. Owners can safely ignore Kelly on draft day.
The Jazz have expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Toure Murry.
Murry has also met with the Heat, but regardless of where he signs, he is not on the fantasy radar in any format. Murry averaged 2.7 points through 51 games with the Knicks during the 2013-14 season.
