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.

Dirk Nowitzki    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

The Mavericks have officially declined Dirk Nowitzki's team option for next season and will begin negotiating a new deal. There's no reason for Dallas fans to panic, as this was a mutual decision to give the Mavericks more financial flexibility this summer. Nowitzki was originally going to be on the books for $25 million in 2017-18, but now one of the options being discussed is a new two-year contract. The Mavericks made it clear that their priority this summer was to re-sign Nerlens Noel and develop their young talent, but their ability to make a splash in free agency hinges on how much of a discount Nowitzki is willing to take.

Jaylen Brown    F  Celtics

 

 

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that he hangs up the phone when teams ask about Jaylen Brown in trade talks. Several names in Boston have been floating around the rumor mill such as Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart, but it sounds like Brown is all but untouchable. This also might explain why the Kristaps Porzingis trade talks stalled -- the Knicks reportedly wanted Brown in any deal. A crowded wing rotation in Boston limits Brown's fantasy appeal, but expect him to take on a larger role in 2017-18 because of his ability to play three positions.

Mathias Lessort    C  76ers

 

 

Mathias Lessort is expected to spend at least one more season overseas. He was the 50th overall pick in the draft and won't be a lock to come to the states in 2018-19 either. He averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.7 steals in 22.9 minutes per game in the Pro A French league, but the last thing the 76ers need right now is another big man. Jonah Bolden and Anzejs Pasecniks are also expected to stay overseas.
