Rudy Gobert is expected to get more run with the French FIBA team.

Kevin Seraphin (knee) and Alexis Ajinca aren't going to play, so the team has already added Ian Mahinmi. Gobert was phenomenal at Las Vegas Summer League and how we'll be able to get a larger sample size to see if his improvement is for real. His footwork was vastly improved, leading to better rebounding and blocking. He's a good bet to take some of Enes Kanter's minutes.

The Phoenix Suns waived Dionte Christmas on Thursday.

Christmas has bounced around between the NBA and Euro-league play the past few seasons. He appeared in 27 games for the Suns last in 2013-2014, averaging only 2.3 points on 35.5 percent shooting. Considering he already has overseas experience, he may look to take his talents abroad if he does not earn a roster spot in the NBA.

Jeremy Pargo signed a two-year deal with Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv.

Pargo signed a two-year deal with CSKA Moscow last year, but is now jumping ship and rejoing Maccabi Tel Aviv. He helped Maccabi win the Israeli double-league and cup titles in 2011, and is now hoping to recapture his Euroleague success from a few years ago. He last played in the NBA in 2013 with Philadelphia, and it is unknown whether he plans to return to the NBA if given the opportunity.

The 76ers have signed point guard Pierre Jackson to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal.

He suffered a torn achilles on July 5th and is likely out for the regular season. Jackson has shown promise in his stints in the D-League, but his future in the NBA is now in doubt. It is a positive sign however, that the 76ers are willing to give Jackson a partially guaranteed deal despite his significant injury.

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Thursday the signing of number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins.

The most notable ramification of the signing is that Wiggins can not be traded for 30 days. He remains the biggest trade chip in a potential offer for Kevin Love, but for now the hypothetical deal will have to be placed on hold. The Cavaliers also signed their second-round pick Joe Harris, but per league policy, contract details were not released.

Chandler Parsons said on KESN-FM 103.3 on Thursday that the Rockets told him they would match any offer he received in restricted free agency.

"Before this whole process started, they had told me ‘You’ve earned this," Parsons recalled. "You deserve this. Go and sign the best deal for your career. Just know in the back of your mind that we plan on matching.’ Throughout the process, I definitely thought they were gonna match the contract." The Rockets instead decided to let Parsons join the Mavericks on a three-year $46 million deal.

Erick Green's deal with the Denver Nuggets will be for three years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Green played overseas last season and had a stellar Vegas Summer League for the Nuggets where he averaged 16.6 points, 3.0 boards, 2.6 assists, and 1.2 steals. Despite his Summer League success, it will be tough for Green to crack the back court rotation in Denver next season.

Jameer Nelson and the Mavericks are expected to finalize a two-year, $6 million deal on Thursday, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The deal also contains a player option in its second year. The Mavericks have had a busy offseason, acquiring Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Chandler Parsons, and now inking Nelson for two years. It is still unclear what role he will play next season, but he will likely be part of a rotating point guard platoon.

Rip Hamilton said on Thursday that "there are opportunities for me... but I'm waiting for the right situation."

Hamilton also expressed his desire to play one more season in the NBA, saying "I think for me, personally, I have to see how my body responds after the summer. I want to play another year and hopefully get an opportunity to play on a team with a chance to win a title." Hamilton last played in the 2012-2013 season, where he averaged 9.8 points in 50 games played. It is unknown whether these opportunities will ever materialize for Hamilton, but he is clearly off fantasy radars moving forward.

Jameer Nelson said on Thursday "My 3-point percentage hopefully will go up playing with better guys."

"The looks will be there," Nelson said. "Dirk will draw a lot of attention. Monta draws a lot of attention. Chandler Parsons, too. Everybody’s going to draw attention, so somebody’s going to be open. I’m just preparing myself to make open shots." Nelson shot 34.8 percent from the three-point line last season, making 2.0 treys per game. With Raymond Felton, Devin Harris, and Nelson on the roster, it's still undetermined who will initially see the lion's share of the minutes at point guard.

Jeremy Lin was officially introduced as a Los Angeles Laker during a press conference with general manager Mitch Kupchak on Thursday.

"I’m just really excited to be part of this organization," Lin said. "For me I’m viewing it as a fresh start, back in the state of California." Kupchak also mentioned that the Lakers tried to acquire Lin on multiple occasions. Lin also expressed his excitement about playing with Kobe Bryant. "I had the opportunity to play with Carmelo, James Harden and Kobe. I can learn a lot from him." With the uncertainty surrounding Steve Nash's health, it is likely that Lin will see a ton of minutes at point guard for the Lakers. If he can improve on the 12.5 points, and 4.1 assists he averaged last season, he could provide decent fantasy value moving forward.

The Phoenix Suns have been impressed with first-round pick T.J. Warren's play.

Warren was named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team after averaging 17.8 points per game on 54.4 percent shooting from the field. "We’d hoped he’d be able to translate his efficient scoring from college to the NBA and it certainly did look like it did translate," Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said. Even though the Suns are excited about Warren, he'll be coming off the bench to start the season and won't provide much fantasy value.

Kevin Seraphin (knee surgery) will be ready when training camp opens in September.

The Wizards chose not to release Seraphin to play in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball so that the 24-year-old will have time to recover from a minor procedure to clean out his right knee. Once healthy, Seraphin will join a crowded Wizards frontcourt of Nene, Marcin Gortat, Kris Humphries, and DeJuan Blair and fantasy owners would be wise to look elsewhere during drafts.

James Harden said that while he and Dwight Howard are the cornerstones of the Rockets, the rest of his teammates are "role players."

Speaking to The Philippine Star, Harden said, '"Dwight [Howard] and I are the cornerstones of the Rockets. The rest of the guys are role players or pieces that complete our team. We've lost some pieces and added some pieces. I think we'll be fine next season." Harden presumably didn't mean any disrespect with his comments, but he may have some explaining to do with some of his teammates.

The Orlando Magic have agreed on a three-year contract with second-round pick Devyn Marble.

The three-year deal will fully guarantee Marble's rookie season, while his second and third year will become guaranteed after specific trigger dates. Marble posted solid stats during five Summer League games, but will is more of a project and won't find enough minutes in 2014-15 to provide much fantasy value.
