Alec Brown has signed a deal to play for Obradoiro in Spain.

The 50th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft averaged just 6.7 points and 3.4 boards for the Bakersfield Jam in the D-League last season, so he doesn't appear to be close to joining the NBA at all. Brown is not on the fantasy radar.

Marcus Morris insinuated in a series of Tweets on Friday that the Suns could be looking to trade his brother Markieff Morris.

Marcus said that Markieff won't be with the Suns for long and that Phoenix isn't a good fit for either of them, so he clearly has some bitter feelings towards the Suns franchise. Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post reported earlier in July that the Suns were exploring trades for Markieff, but nothing appears to be imminent at the moment. We will pass along any additional details on this story.

Jerel McNeal has signed with Aris Thessaloniki in Greece.

McNeal was recently waived by the Suns after they acquired Ronnie Price, and he will have a lot of work to do in order to get another shot in the NBA. His summer league averages of 2.8 points and 2.2 assists won't help his chances either.

Hamed Haddadi has signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales of China.

Haddadi played in China with Quingdao Double Star and will now continue his stay in China for at least one more season. The 30-year-old had been hoping to land with an NBA team, but it's starting to look like his career will end at five NBA seasons and fantasy owners can feel free to ignore him.

T.J. Warren said that he is starting to feel more comfortable out on the court.

"I’m feeling a lot more comfortable out there," Warren said. "I’m familiar with the NBA style more so basically [I’m] just trying to work on my game. [The game is] coming a little slower. [I] just got to be patient with certain type of stuff [and] just got to use my head and going with my first instinct but that will come with more development and more experience being out there." Warren is really starting to blossom into a solid NBA player and he could be in line for a breakout season now that Gerald Green and Marcus Morris are no longer in his way. Keep an eye on him during the preseason.

Flip Saunders said that there have been no conversations between the Wolves and free agent point guard Kendall Marshall.

The Wolves are pretty much set at point guard with Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine and Tyus Jones all under contract, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for them to go after Marshall. Currently recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, Marhsall's rehab has reportedly been going well and he should be ready to go in time for NBA training camps. Unless he ends up in an ideal situation, Marshall isn't on the fantasy radar.

Jerel Mcneal is reportedly in advanced talks with Aris Thessaloniki of Greece.

Mcneal was recently waived by the Suns after posting averages of 2.8 points and 2.2 assists during the summer league, but it looks like his days in the NBA could be in jeopardy. We will let you know if the deal becomes official.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said Devin Booker was in the right defensive position "most of the time" at Summer League.

Hornacek said Booker can "obviously stroke it" with his perimeter jumper and called him "pretty solid all around." Booker was en fuego from deep in his last five games, making 12-of-21 in that span. He's still behind the likes of P.J. Tucker, T.J. Warren and Archie Goodwin to get minutes next to Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe on the outside.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len is looking forward to learning from Tyson Chandler this season.

"He’s one of the best defensive bigs in the league. The way he blocks shots, the way he communicates. I think I can learn just from watching, just from being around him, add it to my game. I think it’s going to be great," Len said in regards to Chandler. "He’s a great leader. We needed a veteran last year. Somebody in the locker room, on the court, somebody we can look up to. So, I think it’s great for the team." Len's upside will be capped due to the arrival of Chandler, and considering his injury history it will be tough to target him in standard leagues.

Free agent point guard Kendall Marshall (knee) is reportedly on the Timberwolves' radar.

Marshall is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, but the expectation is that he will be ready in time for NBA training camps. The Wolves are concerned about Marshall's knee, so a deal isn't imminent by any means. The Wolves' backcourt is pretty crowded at the moment, so Marshall wouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he ended up in Minnesota.

Coach Jeff Hornacek and general manager Ryan McDonough have not talked with Markieff Morris since the trade of his twin brother, Marcus.

The trade wasn't a welcomed sight for either brother. In his press conference in Detroit, Marcus said, "Forget Phoenix." Just following the trade, Markieff tweeted, "Lol this a foul game here man!" Both Morrii had issues with Hornacek with Markieff being benched for a technical foul while Marcus was benched for shouting with the coach.

Mirza Teletovic said the Nets wanted him back, but he choose to sign with the Suns instead.

While Teletovic said the Nets wanted him to stay and the Kings offered him a two-year deal, he decided that Phoenix was the place he wanted to be. "I always loved Phoenix Suns, I loved Charles Barkley back then," Teletovic said. "I already have few friends there and I look forward to be there." The 29-year-old offers three-point help in deeper fantasy leagues, but he won't see enough minutes in Phoenix to warrant a spot on most fantasy rosters.

Devin Booker made 3-of-10 from the field for 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

After missing his first eight shots from deep to start his Vegas run, Booker made 12-of-22 (54.5 percent) from beyond the arc since that rough start. He still has a lot of work to do on two-pointers and his defense is nowhere near where it needs to be, but the NBA is a shooter's league now. Booker could be a valuable piece to the Suns' rotation in the near future.
Jul 20 - 10:56 PM

Devin Booker went off for 31 points during Sunday's win over the Pelicans, adding five 3-pointers, nine rebounds, two assists and five turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

When Booker is hot, he's an exciting guy to watch, and he was effortlessly draining pull up 3-pointers in transition during Sunday's win. Booker doesn't have much competition for playing time in Phoenix, so if he's able to establish himself in the rotation, he could at the very least emerge as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len (rest) did not suit up for Sunday's Summer League game vs. the Pelicans.

The Suns don't want Len playing in back-to-back sets during Summer League, which is a smart move considering how he's struggled to stay healthy during his two years in the league. With Tyson Chandler in town, Len is going to have a tough time getting enough minutes to matter in standard leagues.
