Coach Brett Brown said the 76ers will check with the rest of the league to see what they can get for Jahlil Okafor.

This confirms that the 76ers are still looking to deal their bench five man. Richaun Holmes has likely leapfrogged Okafor and the team wants to play Dario Saric at the five, as well. Okafor could have some fantasy value on another team and he did change his diet to drop weight, but he's only a last-round lotto ticket in fantasy.

Al Jefferson has lost 40 pounds this summer.

He is looking for a fresh start and you could see the weight loss (picture in link below). Jefferson switched to a vegetarian diet at age 32 and perhaps he's looking to build off his career-low 14.1 minutes per game last season. He's not a fantasy option, though.

Coach Brett Brown said Dario Saric could play anywhere the 76ers want him to this season.

It's possible he could play some more center this year. "That's Dario Saric. He was born to play basketball," Brown said. The 76ers love The Homie Dario and Brown added he should've won Rookie of the Year. This season, he's going to have a lot of competition for shots, so his scoring numbers will likely take a major hit. He's more of a late-round guy in most leagues.

Brett Brown said he sees Robert Covington "starting and ending" games for the 76ers this season.

The 76ers will likely be rolling out a starting five of Markelle Fultz, J.J. Redick, Covington, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid (knee) when the 2017-18 season begins, with Dario Saric being used in a sixth man type role. Covington should be able to score at a more efficient rate this season with the improved offense around him, and it sounds like he'll still be a significant part of the rotation, so he could turn out to be one of the better value picks towards the middle rounds on draft day.

Bryan Colangelo said he doesn't anticipate Ben Simmons (foot) having any restrictions during his rookie season.

Colangelo added that Simmons has been playing 5-on-5 for a while now and that he's been "dominating the gym," so it looks like there's a decent chance Simmons will be fully unleashed his rookie year without any minutes limits or restrictions on back-to-back sets. Head coach Brett Brown again stated that he's "locked in" to playing Simmons at point guard on offense "when it's static," so it's clear that he's going to be a huge part of the offense in Philly this season.

Joel Embiid (knee) has yet to go through any 5-on-5 work and head coach Brett Brown said he's not sure what Embiid will be able to do when training camp opens up next week.

76ers' GM Bryan Colangelo made it clear that Embiid has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from the arthroscopic procedure that he underwent on his left knee back in March, but it's a bit strange that Embiid has still not been cleared for contact a full six months removed from what is traditionally just a 4-6 week recovery period. Colangelo also said it's too early to tell when Embiid will be able to scrimmage, so it sounds like he'll be entering camp at less than 100 percent, and there's a chance he might not be ready for the preseason.

Carmelo Anthony's camp is reportedly "cautiously optimistic" that the Knicks and Rockets will be able to come to terms on a deal by Monday.

New York will open up media day on Monday and Anthony is hoping that he'll no longer be sporting a Knicks' jersey when that happens, but to this point, it seems that New York and Houston have not made much progress on trade talks. The Rockets are reportedly unwilling to include Trevor Ariza in any deal for Melo, and the Knicks are uninterested in taking on Ryan Anderson's contract, so it looks like New York will need to find a third team to help facilitate this trade, a proposition that is easier said than done.

Nate McMillan intends to use Lance Stephenson as a sixth man for the Pacers this season, according to Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports.

Stephenson will help backup Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo in Indiana this season, but it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league contributor in fantasy hoops as a member of the second unit with the Pacers.
