DeAndre Jordan scored eight points with six rebounds during an 80-45 win over Venezuela on Friday.

It wasn't the best performance from Team USA, making just 42.4 percent from the field. They continue to destroy teams on the glass, which isn't surprising with their size advantage. As for Jordan, NBATV reported the Team USA coaches are working on his free throw release point. Maybe some new input can help, but probably not.

Doc Rivers stated during a recent interview that he still doesn't know if Paul Pierce will play next season.

"If Paul decides to retire then we're going to make sure that Boston picks him up for one day and he retires a Celtic because that's what he should retire as," Rivers said. "So we have all that in place. We just don't know what he's going to do. I think Paul's going back and forth on it, and I want to give him room." For what it's worth, we've seen two reports indicating that Pierce intends to suit up for his 19th NBA season, but he won't be a fantasy asset anywhere.

In an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Doc Rivers made it clear that Blake Griffin isn't going anywhere.

Specifically, Rivers said teams aren't even calling because they know the Clippers won't move him. In regards to the Blake to Boston rumors, Rivers said he's talked to Danny Ainge twice this summer, but it was simply about golf. Needless to say, a trade doesn't seem imminent and Griffin is likely focusing on rehabbing his partially torn quad.

The Clippers are "actively exploring" sites for a new arena, according to ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz.

The lease with the Staples Center ends in 2024, so there is no rush here. According to the report, the Clippers are looking to move west -- the Staples Center is about 14 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. The Los Angeles Rams of the NFL building a stadium is likely a factor here, as well. Additionally, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register adds the Clippers locker room is being renovated this summer.

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.

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.
