The Clippers will sign Dorell Wright to a training camp deal according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

The 30-year-old wing played 48 games for the Heat last season, averaging 4.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.4 minutes. Unless Paul Pierce decides to retire, Wright likely won't make the team.

Jeff Ayres has signed with CSKA Moscow.

Ayres spent the summer training with the Spurs, but the 29-year-old forward will be able to find a much larger role overseas than he would in the NBA.

Coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Jackson won't be at Warriors camp.

Kerr said the deal "ultimately didn't pan out" with the Warriors and Captain Jack. Jackson said he thinks he can play another two years, so there's a chance someone signs him.

The Clippers are signing Xavier Munford to a training camp deal.

He played 14 regular season games and 22.3 minutes per game in the postseason. Munford did have a blip on the radar with back-to-back double-digit scoring games, but he's still unlikely to be a factor this season.

Jamal Crawford told a Twitter follower that he wants to play five more years.

While it's possible Crawford was just joking around, he does have three years left on his new deal so it wouldn't be a huge shock to see him play until he's 41 years old. Crawford will again come off the bench for the Clippers this year and isn't much more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Paul said his wrist is healed and he's already back on the court.

This is great news with training camp (and fantasy drafts) about to start. Paul will begin the 2016-17 with a healthy supporting cast and should have no trouble returning first-round fantasy value in standard leagues, as long as he can stay healthy.

Jeff Ayres has been training with the Spurs.

He was on the Spurs championship team in 2014 and only played 17 games with the Clippers last season. Ayres will likely wind up on the camp roster.

Stephen Jackson thinks he can be an NBA-level player for two more years.

Jackson has been talking about a comeback all summer and continue that talk in saying he has two years left. "I've been been playing basketball at a high level and my body feels great," Jackson said. "I got calls from different coaches who have seen me work out and they know I can still play. I've got two years left, so why not give it back to the game?" While the 38-year-old may hook on somewhere, he won't be more than a bench player and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Doc Rivers said that DeAndre Jordan sees himself as a star after his experience with Team USA in Rio.

"As good as he is, I don't think he's ever seen himself as one," Rivers said. "He's always been the third guy so he's looked at himself as a role player in some ways. Now he knows how good he is and I think any time you're around winning, it's important, and I think DJ now knows what winning looks like." Jordan was elite last season with 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks on 70.3 percent shooting from the field, and while he hit just 43.0 percent from the line, he was still a first-round stud if you take free throws out of the equation.

Doc Rivers does not expect Paul Pierce to decide on his potential retirement until training camp draws closer.

Pierce has been waffling on his desire to play throughout the offseason, and it still doesn't sound like we have much clarity despite some reports suggesting the veteran will be back in the fold. "Paul didn't have the best year last year," Rivers said. "I don't think he wants to go out that way. So I think that's why he's working to try to come back. But he still may change his mind next week. So we just have to wait. I told him if I see him at training camp, I'm assuming he's playing."

Paul Pierce will retire with the Celtics when he finally decides to hang them up, according to Clippers head coach Doc Rivers.

While it's still unclear if Pierce will return to the Clippers for the 2016-17 season, Rivers said Pierce will sign a one-day contract with the Celtics when he retires. "I think it’s important," Rivers said. "I think we have to do that. And I think we will. Danny [Ainge] and Mike [Zarren], we’ve already talked. The day he retires he’s going to retire a Celtic. He has to. Paul’s a Celtic. So when he retires he’s got to retire as a Celtic. I don’t think anyone disagrees with me." Retirement plans aside, Pierce won't have any fantasy value even if he does decide to return for the 2016-17 season.

Paul Pierce is still unsure if he'll return for his 19th NBA season, according to Doc Rivers.

"Depends on the day I talk to him," Rivers said regarding Pierce's feelings towards retirement. "Paul has had the summer, he's gone back and forth. I think he has a right to do that. I really do. And so, you know, Paul didn't have the best year last year. I don't think he wants to go out that way, so I think that's why he's working to try to come back. But he still may change his mind next week. So we just have to wait. I told him if I see him at training camp, I'm assuming he's playing." Whether he plays or not, The Truth can be removed from draft boards in all settings.

Doc Rivers again shot down the Blake Griffin trade rumors during a recent interview.

"We knew none of [the trade rumors were] true. We figured that was one of you guys starting these rumors here in Boston." said Rivers. "It happens, unfortunately. Blake and [Chris Paul] are free agents [after this season]. Just like last year Oklahoma [City] had to deal with that, now it's our turn." Rivers has time and again said that he has absolutely no desire to unload Griffin or Paul, but that won't stop the rumors from persisting. For what it's worth, there's reportedly a strong feeling from Griffin's camp that he'll re-sign with the Clippers once he opts out of his contract this summer.

The Wolves are expected to bring in Dorell Wright for a workout this week.

Coach Tom Thibodeau usually likes a tight rotation, so Wright wouldn't be in line for minutes on the Wolves. Of course, it wouldn't be a given for him to make the team, if the two parties come to terms. He won't have fantasy value next season.
