DeMarcus Cousins explained why he sees himself as a role model during a recent interview.

"I am a role model, absolutely," Cousin said. "I come from a place where there are not a lot of opportunities. People there, they don’t ever really dream big because they don’t think it ever really exists... And them seeing me make it, they believe it is possible. Those people grew up with me; they have seen the struggles; they have seen me fight and work my way to where I am now, so I absolutely believe I am a role model." DMC seems to be a much more matured player now. He showed up to camp for Team USA in terrific shape, and kept his antics to a minimum last season. He'll be a late-first round pick heading into this year's drafts.

The Clippers officially waived C Miroslav Raduljica on Friday via the stretch provision.

The Clippers traded for Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica on Tuesday, and waived both guys on Friday to create cap space. The move will allow the organization to add four more guys to the roster (before this they could only add one) and they reportedly have their eyes on Ekpe Udoh. Whomever the Clippers decide to add, these will just be minimum-salary guys, and they shouldn't be expected to have any fantasy relevance.

The Clippers officially waived Carlos Delfino on Friday via the stretch provision.

Delfino lasted three days with the Clippers organization before being waived. The move will give the Clippers an additional $3.5 million in cap space to sign players to minimum deals. Chris Douglas-Roberts is reportedly on the Clippers' radar, and he would add emergency depth to the wings. If Douglas-Roberts lands in LA, it will take an injury for him to become fantasy relevant.

Lucas Nogueira worked out with Hakeem Olajuwon this week.

It's a popular move among big men and the young Brazilian does need some skills around the basket. He is very rangy and has the potential to be a big-time shot blocker, but he's still a long way from being a regular contributor. Nogueira isn't a worthwhile target in even keeper formats.

FC Barelona signed DeShaun Thomas to a contract.

He was in Paris last season after being selected by the Spurs with the 58th pick in the 2013 draft. Thomas is a solid rebounding small forward, but he's nowhere near close to being on an NBA team any time soon.

Derrick Rose will come off the bench against Finland on Saturday in Team USA's FIBA opener.

Kyrie Irving will get the start and has earned it due to his outstanding showing this month. Rose said he's "feeling good right now" and we should get to see how he handles so many games in in short period of time. He's a huge risk in fantasy leagues.

Ian Mahinmi has left Team France due to a shoulder injury.

He appeared to suffer the injury in Thursday's practice session and the extent of the injury is not yet know. Mahinmi will back up Roy Hibbert again next season and could get more minutes with Luis Scola playing more power forward than center. He's still not worth drafting in most formats.

Jordan McRae signed with the Melbourne United in Australia.

He was tremendous at Las Vegas Summer League, scoring 21 points per game, and he probably would have competed for playing time with the 76ers. With McRae out of the picture, second-round pick K.J McDaniels is even more attractive in fantasy leagues.

Ty Lawson said the Nuggets will have more of a defensive mindset this upcoming season.

"I already know we can score, everybody knows we can score with the best of them," Lawson said. "But my mindset going into training camp is everybody buying into the defensive end." It took Lawson until June for his ankle to heal after missing 20 games last season. If the Nuggets do slow down, it could cost Lawson some stats. Still, the bigger concern is his health, making him a third-round target in most formats.

Anthony Davis said on Thursday that he loves playing for Team USA basketball.

"Some guys look at it as they don't get paid, so you don't have to play or whatever," Davis said. "I love playing the game of basketball and any time I get a chance to represent my country, especially for all the servicemen and women who do so much for us, I think it's a great opportunity to show your appreciation." He has looked amazing in the exhibition games and is probably Team USA's most talented player. If you want him in your fantasy league, it'll cost you a top-three pick.

Manny Pacquiao has expressed interest in recruiting Metta World Peace to his new Filipino professional basketball team.

He's expected to change his name to The Panda's Friend and tweeted out a bunch of T-shirts with his new name on Wednesday night. World Peace has agreed to a deal with Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association, so he won't be joining up with PacMan this season.

Miroslav Raduljica is expected to be waived by the Clippers.

He had two years left on his deal and the Clippers have no use for him now that they're armed with Spencer Hawes. Raduljica was really only traded so the Clippers could get Dudley's contract off their books. He could get picked up by another team, or may be going overseas.

A few NBA teams are tracking Zoran Dragic at the FIBA World Cup.

His brother won Most Improved Player last season and the two Dragics have been carrying Slovenia in international hoops for the past few years. He did get extended by Uniacaja Malaga this summer, so we won't be seeing him in the NBA this season or anything.

Rodney Hood, Miles Plumlee, Jabari Parker, Gerald Henderson and other Duke players have been working with Grant Hill.

It was a Blue Devil forward get together and it's expected to last about a week. Hood is almost a lock to get in the rotation for the Jazz, and it's possible he even starts if coach Quin Snyder wants to keep Alec Burks as a sixth man. Hood is a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

The Rockets are not interested in Bucks' guard Ramon Sessions.

Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen called the chances Sessions ends up in Houston "unlikely." News that the Rockets were trying to swing a sign-and-trade emerged Monday, but now it appears a chance of a swap is off the table. Sessions is a nice backup point guard, but should not be on fantasy radars until he has defined role on a team.
