  • Joel Embiid PHI C
    76ers' Joel Embiid: 'I feel a hundred percent'
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Joel Embiid (foot) said Saturday that he feels "a hundred percent," Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.

    During a team event, Embiid interacted with fans and revealed that he's not experiencing any injury-related issues as training camp approaches. The former Kansas star did acknowledge that he'll likely face some playing restrictions in 2016-17, though he noted that they would not be due to concern over re-injury and would rather be a product of the fact that he hasn't played in a game setting in two-plus years. Embiid remains somewhat of a wild card for the Philadelphia 76ers this season, but if he's healthy he has the potential to develop into a top-tier center down the road.

    76ers' Tibor Pleiss: Will be waived by Sixers
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tibor Pleiss is expected to be waived by the Sixers, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly reports.

    Pleiss and two future second-round picks were just traded Friday from the Jazz in exchange for Kendall Marshall. With Marshall already waived by the Jazz on Friday, the trade was essentially for financial bookkeeping purposes. Even though Pleiss stands at an imposing 7-3, the German is now in danger of seeing his NBA career come to an end after one forgettable season in Utah where he made just 12 appearances.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Traded to Jazz

    Kendall Marshall was traded to the Jazz on Friday in exchange for Tibor Pleiss, two future second-round picks, and cash, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Marshall had been buried on the Philadelphia 76ers ' depth chart at guard heading into the 2016-17 season, so the team will at least be getting value in return for sending the 25-year-old off to a new squad. Throughout the 2015-16 season in Philadelphia he notched 3.7 points, 0.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 13 minutes per game in 30 games played. The likes of George Hill, Dante Exum, Rodney Hood, Alec Burks, and more crowd the backcourt in Utah, so Marshall has some battling to do before securing a spot in the pecking order.

    1d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tibor Pleiss was traded Friday to the Philadelphia 76ers along with two future second-round picks and cash in exchange for guard Kendall Marshall, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Pleiss was a longshot to make the roster in Utah heading into the 2016-17 season with Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert dominating the majority of minutes in the frontcourt, with several secondary options in Trey Lyles, Boris Diaw, and Joel Bolomboy providing depth. Pleiss only averaged seven minutes per game throughout the 2015-16 season with the Jazz, reeling in 1.3 rebounds and 2.0 points per game as well. The 76ers have plenty of young weapons such as first overall pick Ben Simmons, Nerlens Noel, and Jahlil Okafor so Pleiss' role could be limited given he makes the final roster.

    Olynyk remains concerned that his activities could still be limited at the start of training camp in late September, but the big man nonetheless appears to be well ahead of the five-month recovery timetable initially handed down in late May. That timetable likely would have resulted in Olynyk being sidelined for the start of the season, but the Boston Celtics seem increasingly optimistic that he'll be back to full health at some point later in camp. Olynyk is expected to compete with Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko for a starting role in the frontcourt alongside marquee free-agent signing Al Horford.

    McRoberts' name surfaced in trade rumors throughout the offseason, but since the big man underwhelmed during an injury-plagued 2015-16 campaign and is due $5.8 million in 2016-17, it's unlikely the Heat gained much traction with any supposed discussions. With Chris Bosh's health on uncertain ground heading into the season while he recovers from a setback relating to blood clots, the Heat could need McRoberts to raise his performance in order to remain competitive in the Eastern Conference.

    Trail Blazers' Festus Ezeli: To miss six weeks
    4d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Festus Ezeli received an injection in his left knee and is expected to miss six weeks, Marc Spears of The Undefeated reports.

    Ezeli missed nearly half of last season due to complications with his left knee, which resulted in a mid-season procedure just before the All-Star break. While he returned near the end of the regular season and was available throughout the playoffs, he was never quite fully healthy, and that was borne out in his lackluster postseason performance. According to the Portland Trail Blazers , Ezeli received the injection to "alleviate pain and improve function," perhaps as a means of taking caution against further issues before the 2016-17 season begins. The six-week timetable should enable Ezeli to be ready for opening night, though more will be known as training camp approaches.

    Jazz's Tibor Pleiss: Roster spot on shaky ground
    6d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tibor Pleiss appears unlikely to make the Utah Jazz 's final 15-man roster for the start of the regular season, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

    Following an active offseason, the Jazz boast one of the more balanced top two units in the league, which already makes it difficult for Pleiss to challenge for major minutes in 2016-17 after he was used sparingly as a rookie. However, the team's recent decision to sign power forward/center Joel Bolomboy, the 52nd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, could deal a knockout blow to Pleiss' hopes of even cracking the roster, as he no longer has an easy pathway to even the third-string center duties. Rudy Gobert and Boris Diaw seeming represent the top two options on the depth chart, while shot-blocking presence Jeff Withey already had the edge on the No. 3 center role heading into camp by virtue of his serviceable play a season ago. Along with those players, Trey Lyles, Derrick Favors and Bolomboy all offer the ability to play the position, lessening the need for the Jazz to carry the 7-foot-3 Pleiss as a developmental option. Pleiss' $3 million guaranteed contract for this season could make the Jazz think long and hard about cutting him, but the 25-year-old's underwhelming performance to date in practices and games might nullify any monetary concerns the team may have.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Indicates knee injury isn't serious

    Nikola Mirotic doesn't believe the right knee injury he suffered while playing for Spain in the 2016 Summer Olympics is anything serious, Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo! Sports reports.

    Mirotic hurt the knee in a collision during the Spanish team's bronze-medal winning performance Sunday against Australia, but after briefly leaving the contest, he was able to return minutes later. After the win, Mirotic downplayed the severity of the ailment, so it doesn't seem he's at risk of being unavailable when the Chicago Bulls open training camp in the fall. The 25-year-old is expected to compete with Taj Gibson in camp for the starting power forward role.

The fact that he was able to return to action suggests Mirotic's injury isn't overly serious, but the big man did note he felt more soreness as the contest progressed.

    Ingram, the second overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, is expected to immediately play a major role for the rebuilding Lakers, though he'll likely find himself on the second unit to begin the season after the team signed veteran forward Luol Deng in the offseason. The 18-year-old provided glimpses of his vast potential during the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 12.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists across five games.

    Jazz's Chris Johnson: Chances of making club appear slim

    Johnson isn't expected to crack the Utah Jazz 's 15-man roster for the start of the regular season, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

    After second-round draft pick Joel Bolomboy was officially signed earlier this weekend, the Jazz now have 17 players under contract heading into training camp. Since the Jazz are particularly deep at the small forward spot after adding Joe Johnson to the ranks earlier this offseason, Chris Johnson , a minor role player last season, appears most at risk of missing out on a roster berth. Unless Johnson has an outstanding training camp, it's unlikely the Jazz will be anxious to clear room for him after he shot just 37.1 percent from the field across his 70 appearances in 2015-16.

    Paul Pierce confirmed Tuesday that he's "leaning heavily towards returning" to the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2016-17 season, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Pierce likely won't formally commit to playing during the upcoming season until closer to the start of training camp in the fall, but it looks like the soon-to-be 39-year-old is interested in making one last potential run at an NBA title with one of the league's top teams. Unfortunately for the 10-time All-Star, it's difficult to imagine him providing much in the way of fantasy value after he averaged career-low marks in points per game (6.1), field-goal percentage (36.3%) and minutes per game (18.1) in his 68 appearances last season. The Clippers still have underwhelming options at small forward, so barring an unexpected resurgence from Pierce, look for the veteran to split time at the position with Luc Mbah a Moute, Wesley Johnson and Alan Anderson.

    The Pelicans, like any other NBA team, have the ability to bring no more than 20 players to training camp before trimming their roster to 15 before the season begins. Copeland, who is coming off a miserable season with the Bucks that culminated in his release in February, figures to be one of the five players on the outside looking in for a roster berth. During the 2015-16 campaign, the forward averaged just 2.1 points in 6.5 minutes per game across 24 appearances while shooting 33.3 percent from the field and 27.8 percent from three-point range.

It remains to be seen whether the second or third year of the deal will contain a player option, but either way, James isn't expected to leave the Cavaliers any time soon. With all of that being said, James will continue to be one of the best fantasy options in the league and will look to take his team to back-to-back NBA championships.

    It doesn't appear Rudez will count toward the Magic's 15-man roster, but he could very well earn his way on the team with a quality performance in training camp. Rudez was lost in the shuffle in a crowded Timberwolves frontcourt last season, finishing with averages of 2.3 points and 0.6 rebounds in 8.4 minutes per game over 33 appearances. His ability to stretch the floor could help the Magic, who ranked 23rd in the NBA in three-point buckets per game a season ago.

    The 39-year-old veteran has been in the process of finalizing a deal with the Bucks and will now sign on as a mentor to some of the Bucks' younger backcourt players. Terry should be a low-end rotational player in his first year with the team and will likely struggle to see minutes worthy of a fantasy pickup. However, he'll give the Bucks a consistent three-point shooter off the bench to plug and play when needed, which is an added bonus to the veteran leadership he should be able to provide.

Either way, the Bucks will want to continue to develop their young core, and considering Terry is coming off a season in Houston where he shot just 35 percent from behind the arc, he likely won't have much of a fantasy impact this season.

    The Los Angeles Lakers aren't expected to retain Nick Young for the upcoming season, Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding reports.

    Young is due $5.44 million for 2016-17 and holds a $5.66 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but the 31-year-old's declining play last season coupled with his fractured relationship with teammate D'Angelo Russell that stemmed from a controversial leaked video has left the Lakers anxious to move on. Given that he's shot a combined 35.3 percent from the field across the last two seasons and doesn't offer much impact on the defensive end, it's unclear if Young is even an NBA-caliber player at this point in his career, so a trade isn't guaranteed to materialize. It's more likely that the Lakers just write Young off as a sunk cost and release him before the season begins.

    McLemore, the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, is entering the final season of his rookie contract, but with the Kings actively trying to trade him for the past year, it doesn't seem as though he's viewed as a part of the team's future plans. The 23-year-old regressed badly in his third NBA campaign in 2015-16, averaging 7.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals while shooting 42.9 percent from the floor across 21.2 minutes per game, more than 11 minutes fewer than he'd averaged the year before. With the Kings bringing in Arron Afflalo this offseason to start at shooting guard, McLemore's role may decline even further.

He shot 35 percent from behind the arc in his last healthy season with the Nets, and could provide the Clippers with depth and jump shooting on the wing, which they have been in desperate need of.
