Darius Miller - G/F -

Darius Miller has signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans.

The second year is a team option. Miller has been out of the league for a couple years, but the 27-year-old wing has had a lot of success overseas. He's a longshot to crack the rotation and can be ignored by fantasy owners for now.

Carmelo Anthony and the Thunder "are officially circling each other" according to Bill Simmons of The Ringer.

Thunder assistant GM Troy Weaver was an assistant coach at Syracuse when he recruited Melo back in the day, but it's hard to imagine OKC putting together a package that would entice the Knicks. The Thunder would have to unload either Steven Adams or Enes Kanter to make a deal work, but a third team would probably have to be involved because New York would want picks or younger prospects on rookie-scale contracts. This is firmly in the rumor stage and the Rockets and Cavaliers are still considered the favorites to pull off a trade for Melo.

The Hornets will work out free agent PG Norris Cole.

The Hornets are still on the market for a third-string PG and recently worked out Donald Sloan as well. This also suggests that the Hornets may not guarantee Briante Weber's contract for 2017-18. Cole has career averages of 7.0 points, 2.7 assists and 0.8 steals, and he wouldn't have much fantasy value in Charlotte behind Kemba Walker and Michael Carter-Williams.

Anthony Davis said he's very excited about the addition of Rajon Rondo and believes they will work together well.

"He and I will do very well in pick-and-rolls, especially the way I dive to the basket, or I can pick-and-pop," Davis said. "He’s great at finding guys at the right times with the ball. Anyone who’s been in pick-and-rolls with him has been very successful. Hopefully we can do the same thing." Davis' ceiling in fantasy isn't as high next to DeMarcus Cousins, as his usage rate dropped from 32.7 to 27.4 when DMC arrived in New Orleans. While he's still a lock to go in the first round, he always comes with a lot of risk because of the durability concerns.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he would like to see JaVale McGee return to Golden State.

"We’d love to have him back," Kerr said. "If he doesn’t come back, then I think we would be patient and explore our options." The Warriors can only offer McGee a minimum deal, as they used their entire mid-level exception to sign Nick Young. McGee was "not happy" with the Warriors when they did that, but there's still a good chance he comes back because his market hasn't been great. If he does re-sign, a role with minutes in the teens seems likely.

Toure Murry has signed a one-year deal with German side Ratiopharm Ulm.

The 27-year-old guard has had stints with the Knicks, Jazz and Wizards, but he's been out of the NBA for a few years.

Timofey Mozgov said he's going to surprise people by showcasing his 3-point shot next season.

Mozgov does have a decent mid-range game, but he's 7-of-40 from beyond the arc in his career. "I’ve already talked with the coach," he said. "It seems to me, this year it will surprise many that I’ll can shoot the [3-point shot]. It will be interesting. But we'll see." Mozgov will play for Russia in Eurobasket next month, so we'll get an idea of his progress then. Mozgov may be the starter on opening night in Brooklyn, but he will have to fend off intriguing rookie Jarrett Allen. With averages of 7.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and just 0.6 blocks per contest last season, he won't be a recommended fantasy target.

Eric Bledsoe said he loves everything about Phoenix, but added that he wants to win now.

Bledsoe is only 27, but he said he feels like an old man among his young teammates. The Suns are probably another year or two away from being competitive in the West, and Bledsoe reiterated that he was upset about being shut down at the end of last season so the Suns could tank their way to a better draft pick. Bledsoe has been linked to Cleveland because of Kyrie Irving's trade request, and he does share the same agent and is good friends with LeBron James. He was awesome last season with averages of 21.1 points, 6.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys per game, and more importantly, he was able to stay on the floor.

Derrick Rose is meeting with the Cavaliers on Monday.

Rose met with the Lakers on Friday and it's worth noting that they can offer him more money, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Cavaliers are his top choice. The two sides are engaged in "serious discussions" on a one-year, $2.1 million minimum deal, and it sounds like a deal could be reached sooner rather than later. A move to Cleveland would make some sense for Rose, as he could revitalize his market value playing alongside LeBron James and could potentially be the starting PG if Kyrie Irving's demand for a trade is met.

The Hornets are bringing in free agent G Donald Sloan for a workout, according to David Pick.

Sloan last played for the Nets in 2015-16, averaging 7.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.4 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.6 threes in 21.6 minutes per game. He played for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in China last year, helping his team make the 2017 CBA Finals, and could head back overseas if he doesn't earn a guaranteed deal in the NBA.

Free agent Marreese Speights will sign with the Magic on a one-year deal worth the veteran's minimum, according to USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt.

Speights declined a $2.1 million player option with the Clippers, in the hopes of earning a mid-level-exception deal worth more than $8 million annually. That didn't work out, but the 29-year-old big man would give Orlando a different, court-stretching option in a frontcourt that features Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo.

LeBron James may be "intrigued with pursuing a Los Angeles Lakers exit plan" in 2018, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Woj reports that there's a "growing verdict" that the Lakers could be LeBron's future target, which may be part of the reason Kyrie Irving would prefer a trade away from the Cavs. In a salacious twist, Stephen A. Smith said on Sunday that Kyrie is convinced LeBron's camp leaked Kyrie's preference for a trade. "They believe that LeBron James got word of it, and was put off by it, and leaked it," Smith said. Irving reportedly would prefer to be dealt to the Knicks, Heat, Spurs or Wolves, but there's no clear traction for any of those scenarios.

LeBron James will not waive his no-trade clause at any point for any team during the 2017-18 season.

James is committed to trying to win a championship with the Cavs next season, but his long-term views towards the franchise remain a bit of a mystery at the moment. He's reportedly "disappointed" with Kyrie Irving requesting a trade, and he's voiced his displeasure with how Dan Gilbert handled the David Griffin situation, but it looks like he'll be donning the wine and gold next year no matter what.

Jimmer Fredette has agreed to return to the Shanghai Sharks of China on a one-year deal worth roughly $1.8 million.

That's more than he could make in the NBA, and he actually gets to play in China, so the move makes sense. Maybe he'll be able to earn a 10-day deal with an NBA club once his season in China is over.
Jul 23 - 6:43 PM

The Kings reportedly have no interest in trading away De'Aaron Fox in a package that would net them Kyrie Irving.

Fox's name was floated in a recent trade rumor indicating that the Kings were trying to offer a package that would include Fox, Kosta Koufos "and possibly more for Irving," which is laughable, and Kings' Insider James Ham's sources are directly refuting that such a discussion has taken place in Sacramento. Fox will likely begin the year coming off the bench behind George Hill, but his minutes should steadily increase throughout the year.
