Jonathan Isaac    F  Magic

 

 

Magic rookie Jonathan Isaac said he'll need to adjust to the speed of games in the NBA. "Even playing pickup [games], these [veteran players] know so much, and they’re able to apply their understanding with that speed," Isaac said. "And that’s something I’m lacking right now." Isaac will be fighting for minutes in a rotation that includes Aaron Gordon, Jonathon Simmons, Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross, making him more appealing in keeper and dynasty formats.

Nick Young    G/F  Warriors

 

 

Steve Kerr is encouraging Nick Young to look for his own shots this season, telling him to "let it fly every time he's open." "I'll be getting a lot of open threes," Young said. "I’ll have to get used to not having somebody pretty much guarding me that much." The 10-year veteran should hit plenty of 3-pointers with Golden State's second unit, but that's nearly the extent of his fantasy appeal -- he has career averages of 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.2 blocks, while shooting 41.9 percent from the field.

Dwyane Wade    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have agreed to a contract buyout. Wade was owed $23.8 million but he'll leave approximately $8 million on the table in the buyout, which allows him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it shouldn't take long for Wade to strike a new deal -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs are the "clear frontrunner," but the Spurs, Heat and Thunder are also mentioned as possibilities.

Dwyane Wade    G/F  Bulls

 

 

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have reportedly agreed to a contract buyout. Wade was owed $23.8 million and it's unclear how much he'll leave on the table in the buyout, which frees him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it won't take long before Wade is linked to interested teams -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs, Spurs and Heat have emerged as early "leaders" to sign Wade, with the Thunder also mentioned as a possibility.

Tony Parker    G  Spurs

 

 

Tony Parker (left quad surgery) is targeting a return "at the end of November," nearly two months ahead of his original timetable. "I got some good news," Parker said. "My tendon is healed ... I think I need another two months." This is very encouraging but it doesn't guarantee that he will help fantasy owners before the new year, since the Spurs will be extra cautious with their 35-year-old stalwart. "I will have to convince Pop now," Parker added. "If it were up to him, I would not play before the playoffs." In his absence, Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills should split minutes at PG.

Joel Anthony    F/C  Bucks

 

 

The Bucks have signed Joel Anthony for training camp. The veteran center averaged just 6.4 minutes in 19 appearances last season, and he's unlikely to make the Bucks' regular season roster.

DeAndre Liggins    G  Hawks

 

 

DeAndre Liggins was traded from the Clippers to the Hawks on Sunday, but Atlanta is expected to waive him. The deal gets L.A. just below the luxury tax threshold, while creating a $1.7 million trade exception. It's anyone's guess where Liggins will begin the 2017-18 season -- since last April he's been waived by the Cavs, claimed by the Mavs, traded to the Clippers and then traded to the Hawks.

Akil Mitchell    F  

 

 

The Nets have added PF Akil Mitchell to their training camp roster. Mitchell has spent time in France and the G-League since leaving Virginia in 2014, but he's yet to make a dent in the NBA.

Cliff Alexander    F  Pelicans

 

 

Cliff Alexander agreed to a training camp deal with the Pelicans on Sunday. Alexander will provide another big body at camp, but it's unlikely he'll be able to earn a spot on the regular-season roster.
