Danilo Gallinari (thumb) is "just days away from a return and should be ready to go for training camp," according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders.

Gallinari fractured the first metacarpal on his right (shooting) hand after punching an opponent during a EuroBasket exhibition game back in late July. He was expected back on the court in 4-6 weeks according to the original prognosis, so it appears he has not suffered any setbacks. However, Gallo has played in just 175 out of a possible 328 games over the last four seasons, so durability is certainly a concern going forward.

C.J. Williams has reportedly signed a training camp deal with the Clippers.

Williams signed a similar deal with the Mavericks last September but did not make Dallas' opening day roster. He ended up playing 50 games, including 39 starts, for the Mavs' D-league affiliate, averaging 12.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists. Williams is not expected to make the Clippers 15-man roster this season, and will likely head to the G-League.

LaDontae Henton will sign a training camp deal with the Clippers.

A 25-year-old small forward, Henton played all four seasons at Providence but went undrafted in 2015. He has spent some time overseas, but most recently played with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League last season where he averaged 13.6 points and 5.3 rebounds. He will have an Exhibit 10 clause in his contract which means the Clippers can sign him to a two-way contract if they want to keep him around past camp.

Michael Winger has reached an agreement in principle to become the Clippers' new GM.

Winger spent the past seven years learning under the tutelage of Sam Presti in OKC, and he's highly respected around the league, so the Clippers got a good one here. Winger will report directly to the president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank, and Doc Rivers will now be able to devote all his time to coaching in Los Angeles.

Milos Teodosic (undisclosed) will not play for Serbia at Eurobasket.

The exact injury is unclear, but we'll pass along more info once we know more. The Clippers are aware of the situation and this was reportedly a joint decision between them and his national team. Signed to a two-year, $12.3 million deal this summer, Teodosic will likely split the PG duties with Patrick Beverley in Los Angeles and is worth a look late in drafts if you missed out on assists.

The Clippers have offered their GM position to Oklahoma City Thunder executive Michael Winger.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, a deal is expected to be reached soon. Winger has spent the past seven years as an assistant GM underneath Sam Presti in OKC and Wojnarowski adds that "he has developed a reputation as one of the league's most respected young executives."

Marshall Plumlee has agreed to a partially-guaranteed deal with the Clippers.

The Knicks waived Plumlee back on July 7 after he played a grand total of 170 minutes with the team last year. Plumlee did get an opportunity to start one game last year, but he didn't score in that one. Plumlee could have a chance to be the third center on the roster, but that would mean the Clippers would slide Montrezl Harrell over to the four.
Aug 19 - 5:54 PM

The Clippers have signed G Tyrone Wallace.

The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but this is likely just a camp invite for the No. 60 overall pick from the 2016 NBA draft. The Clippers have plenty of depth at the point guard position, so Wallace will more than likely spend most of the 2017-18 season with Los Angeles' G-League affiliate.

DeAndre Jordan said it's "impossible" for the Clippers to replace Chris Paul's playmaking, but believes Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic will keep the team afloat.

"Those guys are going to come in and play their style of basketball, and it's going to be fun," Jordan said. The loss of Paul won't be easy for Jordan, as his net rating with CP3 on the floor was 16.7 compared to -4.4 with him off. He was also the recipient of countless lobs, helping him post the best field goal percentage (71.4 percent) in the NBA last season. Teodosic is a world class passer, so hopefully he'll develop some nice chemistry with DJ. He's still an early-round target if you're planning to punt free throws, as he's elite in FG percentage, rebounds and blocks.

Jeff Ayres has signed a contract to play for Eskisehir Basket in Turkey next season.

Ayres was a D-League All-Star back in 2015-16 and spent time in Russia, Japan and the D-League last season. It doesn't appear he will make his way back to the NBA anytime soon.

Willie Reed's wife, Jasmine Reed, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that she will not press charges against her husband after he was arrested on domestic-violence charges on Sunday.

"This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf," said Mrs. Reed. "Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way."
Aug 9 - 12:34 PM

Willie Reed's arraignment hearing in his domestic battery case has been scheduled for September 8th.

Reed was jailed over the weekend and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. The accusations made against Reed by his wife are incredibly troublesome. If found guilty, Reed will likely be facing a lengthy suspension. It's also possible that the Clippers choose to cut ties with him altogether. The arraignment hearing is just three weeks before the start of the Clippers training camp.
Aug 8 - 10:08 AM

Willie Reed was released from jail on Sunday afternoon after his $1,500 bond was posted.

He's still in a world of trouble and has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. Reed's wife said that Willie grabbed her "by the shirt, hair, wrist and arm" after telling him she wanted a divorce and that she was also thrown to the ground -- she had red marks on her left wrist, right bicep, the right side of her chest and her back and swelling on her left foot. To make matters worse, their son was present during the incident. The Clippers said they are aware of the situation and are working with the NBA to "determine the facts around the situation." A court date has been set for Sept. 8.
Aug 7 - 9:41 AM
