According to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times, Paul Pierce still intends to play next season.

Turner did mention that a different source informed him that Pierce still hasn't decided, but we should have a final answer in a few weeks. The Truth still has two years left on his deal, but his salary for the 2017-18 season isn't guaranteed. The 38-year-old will have a limited role if he returns for his 19th NBA season and he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.

DeAndre Jordan has drawn praise from both Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim during his tenure with Team USA.

"As good as I thought he was on TV and on tape, he’s better," Coach K said. "He’s really one of the great players in the league right now, and an amazing teammate. He does dirty work willingly, but he does it at the highest level. I think he’s a special player." Separately (and previously), Boeheim had this to say about DJ: "He’s about the hardest working big guy I’ve seen…He just goes after everything. He’s always engaged, he’s moving, there’s no down time, he’s not taking a play off and he plays hard." It's worth keeping in mind that Jordan played a significant chunk of his regular season last year without Blake Griffin, so that's something to factor in when deciding where Jordan will come off the board on fantasy draft day.

Clippers sign G Raymond Felton.

Felton will get the veteran's minimum in Los Angeles, where he'll play behind both Chris Paul and Austin Rivers at the point guard position. Without multiple injuries in the backcourt, there is no fantasy value to be found here.

David Michineau will play for Hyeres-Toulon in France next season.

He was the 39th pick in the 2016 Draft, but the Clippers were never expected to bring him over right away.

Devyn Marble is receiving interest from teams in Europe and China.

Marble only played 28 games last season and will likely head overseas after being waived by the Clippers. The 23-year-old averaged just 2.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 2016-17 and won't have any fantasy value even if he lands on an NBA roster.

The Thunder are reportedly interested in signing Blake Griffin after the 2016-17 season.

The Thunder will have plenty of competition as Griffin will be one of the top unrestricted free agents on the market next summer, but they could have an advantage as Griffin hails from Oklahoma. The Thunder are reportedly interested in teaming up Griffin and Russell Westbrook, but Griffin has also been mentioned in various trade rumors so there are other factors at play here. For the time being, Griffin is focusing on rehabbing his partially torn quad for 2016-17 and will enter the season as an early-round fantasy draft pick if we hear positive reports before draft season.

The Clippers have waived Branden Dawson.

With the offseason additions of Brandon Bass and Brice Johnson, there was no need for Dawson to be on the roster.
Jul 17 - 5:06 PM

The Clippers and Brandon Bass agreed on a one-year deal.

The Clippers get some extra depth to their power forward spot, which is interesting due to Blake Griffin's leg possibly being an issue. Bass should get some minutes in the second unit, but he won't have much fantasy value.
Jul 16 - 9:08 PM

According to sources of Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, some executives around the league believe that Blake Griffin's partially torn quad is still a "serious thing."

"I still think there’s a concern with his leg," said one unnamed rival executive. "We looked into him, and we’re hearing that’s a pretty serious thing. I’m not saying you don’t go after him, but you’d better be really sure about that leg before you go making any big commitments." Griffin's 2015-16 campaign was cut short by the partially torn quad injury, and he reportedly required a bone marrow transplant at the end of the season. Griffin won't be suiting up for Team USA in order to give himself some extra time to recover, and we're sure to have plenty of updates on the health of his leg leading up to camp.

The Clippers will reportedly waive Devyn Marble before his contract becomes guaranteed.

The Magic were going to do the same thing, but the Clippers decided to send them C.J. Wilcox and some cash so that they themselves could save some cap room. Marble has been a negligible factor in fantasy hoops throughout the entirety of his two-year career, and that's unlikely to change.
Jul 15 - 1:46 PM

The Clippers will acquire Devyn Marble and a 2020 second-round pick for C.J. Wilcox and cash.

Orlando was going to waive Marble before his contract became guaranteed, so the Magic aren't giving up much here. Marble only played in 28 games last season and was basically out of the rotation.
Jul 14 - 10:37 PM

Raymond Felton has reportedly agreed to a contract with the Clippers for the veteran's minimum.

One of Doc Rivers’ favorite things must be adding point guards to his roster. Felton will serve as the third-string PG in Los Angeles, and his fantasy value will be non-existent as long as Chris Paul and Austin Rivers are healthy.
Jul 14 - 5:47 PM

David Michineau will likely spend his rookie season either playing overseas in Europe or in the D-League.

The Clippers haven't made a final decision on the 2016 second-round draft pick, but based on this report, it would appear he won't be playing many games (if any) in Los Angeles during his rookie season.
Jul 14 - 3:22 PM

The Clippers have officially signed Diamond Stone to a two-year deal.

Stone will make roughly $543,000 during his rookie year, and both years of his contract are fully guaranteed. His fantasy value will be non-existent as long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy.
Jul 14 - 3:07 PM

The Magic will waive Devyn Marble before his salary becomes guaranteed for the 2016-17 season.

The 23-year-old SF shot just 29.6 percent last season, in limited appearances, and will need to show offensive improvement before earning a reliable role with an NBA team. He may earn a training-camp invite with another team, but isn't a fantasy concern.
