K.J. McDaniels    G/F  Nets

 

 

The Nets will reportedly decline their $3.5 million team option for K.J. McDaniels, making him an unrestricted free agent. McDaniels was traded from the Rockets mid-season last year, and as a member of the Nets' bench he averaged 6.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks. He has intriguing per-minute fantasy potential, but would need an ideal situation to be worth considering in typical leagues.

Chris Singleton    F  

 

 

Former Wizards F Chris Singleton reportedly had two sit-down meetings with NBA teams this week, and he's prepared to opt out of his deal with the Greek team Panathinaikos. The No. 18 pick in the 2011 draft hasn't played in the NBA since 2013-14, since signing with teams in Russia and Greece. Singleton is still just 27 years old and he has fared well overseas -- he finished the 2016-17 season averaging 12.0 points on 54.1 percent shooting (43.6 percent from deep), 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks. He's still a longshot to make a regular-season NBA roster.

Darius Miller    G/F  

 

 

The Magic plan to work out FA forward Darius Miller, but he's reportedly "poised" to sign with Barcelona. Miller signed with a German team in 2015 and it sounds like he's happy playing in Europe. Even if he does unexpectedly vie for a spot on an NBA roster, he's nowhere near having fantasy relevance.

Carmelo Anthony    F  Knicks

 

 

The Cavaliers will reportedly be a "leading contender" for Carmelo Anthony if he gets an offseason buyout from the Knicks. A lot would have to happen for this to become a reality, and the Cavs' interest could also wane if they manage to pry Paul George away from the Pacers. Despite the well-chronicled acrimony between Melo and the Knicks' front office, and Phil Jackson's public call for Melo to "go somewhere else," there haven't been any reports that a buyout is likely. On the contrary, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith both attested in early June that Melo hopes to stay in New York.

Chauncey Billups    G  

 

 

The Cavaliers continue to discuss hiring Chauncey Billups as team president, but there is "no immediate resolution expected." It's unclear what the sticking points are in these talks, and the timing is interesting since Cleveland is reportedly trying to involve a third team in a deal for Paul George. No other names have been mentioned for the position, so for now it looks like it's Billups or bust.

Paul George    G/F  Pacers

 

 

The Cavaliers, Pacers and Nuggets have reportedly discussed a three-team deal that would send Paul George to Cleveland, with Kevin Love going to Denver. To be clear, nothing is imminent and there's no mention of what Indiana would get in this scenario -- Denver would likely send them a combination of young players and draft picks. It would be a very interesting move from the Nuggets, who acquired Trey Lyles on draft day but could lose Danilo Gallinari in free agency. Chris Haynes reports that Denver would be willing to give up Kenneth Faried in a potential deal, with Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay also "available." Stay tuned.

Shawn Dawson    F  Player

 

 

Shawn Dawson will reportedly play for the Rockets' summer league team. Dawson tried to make his way onto an NBA squad via the summer league route last year but ended up getting waived during training camp. The Rockets already have a lot of depth in their backcourt, so Dawson will really need to impress during summer league to earn himself a camp invite.

Milos Teodosic    G  

 

 

Milos Teodosic is rumored to be leaning towards signing with the Jazz as an unrestricted free agent this summer. George Hill will also hit free agency this offseason, but Utah might be able to get Teodosic for slightly cheaper, and Hill's injury-riddled 2016-17 campaign definitely makes him a risky investment. Prior to the draft we heard rumors that the Bulls were interested in Teodosic, but with them trading away Jimmy Butler, that's probably no longer the case.
