Jordan Mickey    F  Heat

 

 

Jordan Mickey is finalizing a guaranteed $1.5 million contract with Miami, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. The Celtics drafted Mickey out of LSU with the 33rd overall pick in the 2015 draft. He appeared in 25 games for Boston in 2016-17, but averaged just 1.5 points in 5.6 minutes of action. He did average 20.8 points and 8.8 rebounds in the 12 D-League games he played in. The Heat have plenty of depth in their crowded frontcourt, so although his guaranteed pact means it highly probable he'll make the final 15-man roster, it's unlikely Mickey cracks Miami's rotation next season.

Marc Gasol    C  Grizzlies

 

 

Marc Gasol suggested he might be open to a trade if the Grizzlies don't "keep growing." Gasol, speaking with a Spanish media outlet, said: "I’m very ambitious and I’ve wanted Memphis to be a great franchise. We’ve grown a lot the last 6-7 years, but we have to keep growing. If this is not lined up, maybe we may have to revisit things." The Grizz have Mike Conley and Gasol locked up, but the rest of the roster is unsettled. The health of Chandler Parsons, who inked a $94 million contract, is still a question mark and JaMychal Green remains unsigned. It will be difficult for Memphis to make the playoffs in a stacked Western Conference this season.

Gerald Henderson    G/F  76ers

 

 

Gerald Henderson underwent hip surgery on Thursday. Henderson has been dealing with nagging hip pain for over five years and finally decided he wanted to have the hip operated on. According to his agent, Henderson will start rehab as early as next week in preparation for his return to the NBA. Henderson is still a free agent, so he'll have to convince a team he is healthy enough to play once he gets close to 100%. He won't have fantasy relevance anytime in the near future.

Andrew White    G  Celtics

 

 

The Celtics signed Andrew White to a partially guaranteed one-year deal. White led Syracuse in scoring last year with 18.5 points per game and broke the school's all-time record for most 3-pointers in a season, but was not selected in the 2017 NBA draft. White will be a training camp body for the C's, but it is highly unlikely he makes Boston's final 15-man roster. He'll most likely join the team’s G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.

Nigel Hayes    F  Knicks

 

 

Nigel Hayes agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Knicks. He agreed to a camp deal with the Knicks back in June, so it's unknown if there was something added to that deal here. The Wisconsin product went undrafted in June, but he was impressive in his senior season with 14.0 points per game.

Brandon Bass    F  

 

 

Brandon Bass will sign a $2 million deal to play in China with the Liaoning Leopards. He played 52 games with the Clippers last year with 5.6 points per game, which was his lowest scoring average since 2006-07. Bass is 32 years old and has played 758 NBA games, but his career in the league may be over.

Donald Sloan    G  Wizards

 

 

Donald Sloan agreed to a one-year deal with the Wizards. It's likely just a camp deal for the five-year vet. Sloan was with the Nets in the 2015-16 season and he did spend some time with the Pacers before that, but he'll likely just be there for training camp.
