    • Karl-Anthony Towns MIN C
      Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Agrees to super-max extension
      4h ago

      Towns signed a five-year, $190 million super-maximum extension with the Timberwolves on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Regarding the extension, Towns stated, "I promise to the fans, my teammates and the organization to keep the vision of the man who drafted me, Flip Saunders, alive and treat his dream of winning with respect and dignity. To the fans from Day One and the Timberwolves fans, this is for you."

      Word emerged in mid-July that Towns and the Wolves began engaging in discussions regarding a maximum extension, and the deal has gotten done just prior to the beginning of training camp. Towns was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and hasn't missed a game in his first three seasons. He secured his first All-Star nod last year on the back of 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. Towns is also one of the most efficient big men in the league, shooting 54.5 percent from the field, 42.1 percent from three and 85.8 percent from the line in 2017-18. If Jimmy Butler's trade request is fulfilled, Towns could be in store for higher usage during the upcoming season.

      Kings' Deyonta Davis: Waived by Kings
      8h ago

      Davis was waived by the Kings on Saturday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

      Davis was acquired in a trade from Memphis during mid-July. It appears the Kings now have other plans for that roster spot, however. Davis is a candidate to land with another team for training camp considering he showed flashes last season. Across 15.2 minutes, he averaged 5.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and over half a block on 60.8 percent shooting.

      Carlisle noted that Nowitzki did some light shooting and lifting Saturday, but is still feeling soreness in his ankle tendons. The veteran will presumably be brought back with heavy caution considering his history with the organization and overall mileage. He should be considered questionable for the start of preseason.

      Butler's representatives have made the Timberwolves aware he will not be available for on-court activities once training camp commences, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic

      The situation in Minnesota appears extra messy at the moment following news that Butler requested a trade earlier in the week. It was originally speculated that he may not report to camp, but this is the first official word. There is speculation that head coach Tom Thibodeau does not want to trade the star wing, but owner Glen Taylor is in favor of the move. It is unclear how long this saga will drag out, but all we know for sure is that Butler will not participate in camp once it kicks off.

      Asik is dealing with inflammatory arthritis, and will be sidelined indefinitely.

      Asik is coming off his roughest season as a pro, as he played in just 18 games and produced career lows across the board. He is set to make about $23 million through the 2019/20 season, which makes him very difficult to trade. Thus, the Bulls will have to wait for him to work his way back to basketball activities, which there is no clear timetable for.

      Bogdanovic will undergo a minor knee surgery Monday and does not have a timetable for a return, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports. He suffered the injury playing for the Serbian national team last Monday.

      Bogdanovic underwent a knee surgery in late April, which had a scheduled recovery time of 8-10 weeks. Shortly after getting healthy, he appears to have re-aggravated the issue. It's reportedly minor, but the news isn't encouraging less than a week away from the beginning of training camp. A timetable for a return may be established following the procedure. For now, he should be considered questionable for the preseason at best.

      Dedmon (ankle) won't be ready for the start of training camp and is expected to be reevaluated in a week, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

      Dedmon shed his walking boot earlier in September, but hasn't progressed enough in his recovery from a fractured ankle to be fully cleared for training camp. He'll likely look to ramp up his activity as camp progresses and another update should be provided in a week after Dedmon is reevaluated. At this point, the big man doesn't appear to be in danger of missing any regular season time, but he could miss a portion, or the entirety, of the Hawks' preseason schedule

      Anigbogu (knee) has resumed practicing and is fully cleared for the start of training camp, J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star reports.

      Anigbogu sat out summer league after undergoing offseason knee surgery, but has apparently made a full recovery after nearly three months of rehab. He'll head into camp without restrictions, though he's unlikely to see much court time in his second season. Al Jefferson is no longer in Indiana, but Kyle O'Quinn was brought in this summer and the Pacers bring back both Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis as well. All three should slot in ahead of Anigbogu on the center depth chart, so don't be surprised if the 19-year-old once again spends significant chunks of time in the G-League.

      Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Sitting out training camp
      4d ago

      Cousins (Achilles) won't participate in training camp, David Aldridge of TNT reports.

      Cousins was always considered a long shot to be ready for camp as he works his way back from a torn left Achilles' tendon, so this is merely a confirmation that he's sitting out. That said, coach Steve Kerr is still planning to watch a ton of film with Cousins, so the hope is to keep him involved in practices and to help the All-Star big man get a feel for how the team plays together. Considering the talent surrounding Cousins, the Warriors will be extremely cautious with his recovery and don't have much incentive to rush him back early on in the regular season. With the uncertainty regarding his return and the potential for him to miss more than half the season, Cousins will likely be a popular late-round flier in most leagues.

      Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Likely to come off bench
      1d ago

      Nowitzki will likely come off the bench this season, ESPN's Tim MacMahon reports.

      The veteran started all 77 games in which he played in his age-39 season a year ago, but that was due in part to necessity, as the Mavericks were especially thin at the center position. As Nowitzki moves into his 21st NBA season -- all with the Mavs -- coach Rick Carlisle told reporters that he anticipates bringing the now-40-year-old off the bench. Given the mileage on Nowitzki's body, the decision isn't overly surprising, and the future-hall-of-famer can still be productive in a reduced role. Nowitzki managed 12.0 points and 5.7 rebounds in 24.7 minutes per game last season, and he shot better than 40 percent from three for the first time since 2012-13. With Nowitzki likely on his way to the bench, the Mavs could be clearing a spot for rookie Luka Doncic to enter the lineup, though that has not been confirmed.

      Hawks' John Collins: Could see minutes at center

      Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce implied Thursday that Collins could spend some time at center this season, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.

      All indications are that Collins will be the Hawks' starting power forward, but it certainly wouldn't be a surprise if he's used at the five in certain lineups. Atlanta doesn't have a ton of quality depth at the position behind Dewayne Dedmon, who is currently battling an ankle injury and won't be ready for training camp. As a rookie, Collins posted averages of 10.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 24.1 minutes per game. He'll likely see a jump in playing time this season, and he flashed increased comfortability from beyond the arc during summer league, both of which make him one of the year's more popular breakout candidates.

      Head coach Brad Stevens said he expects everybody, including Yabusele (hand), to be a "full go" when training camp opens Tuesday, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

      Yabusele was seen sporting a wrap on his left hand roughly a week ago, but it's apparently nothing overly serious considering coach Stevens expects to have everybody ready for camp. Barring a setback, look for Yabusele to head into the preseason without any restrictions and he'll continue to provide depth at both the power forward and center spots. Yabusele averaged 7.1 minutes across 33 games as a rookie and seems unlikely to make huge strides with his playing time considering the bodies above him on the depth chart.

      Magic's Jonathon Simmons: No longer limited by wrist injury
      3d ago

      Simmons (wrist) is expected to be fully cleared for the start of training camp, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

      Simmons underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist on April 24th, but has had nearly five months to go through the recovery process. He's now made a full recovery and barring any surprises, should be a full go for the start of training camp next week. Simmons put together a career year in his first season with Orlando, averaging 13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 three-pointer across 69 games (50 starts). However, with the Magic likely committing to the development of their younger players, as well as having both Evan Fournier and Jonathan Isaac at full strength to start the year, Simmons could struggle to match his numbers from last year. It wouldn't be surprising if he opened the year as Orlando's first player off the bench.

      Head coach Brad Stevens said he expects everybody, including Hayward (ankle/leg), to be a "full go" when training camp opens Tuesday, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

      Hayward has been able to play 5-on-5 since the start of September and already indicated he's 100 percent healthy, so this is merely confirmation that he'll be good to go for the start of camp. While he could be eased back into action during the preseason, Hayward should be without any restrictions by the season opener Oct. 16 against the 76ers. There may be a slight adjustment period as he gets comfortable playing alongside Kyrie Irving, but fantasy owners can go ahead and draft Hayward with confidence now that his injury is behind him. Stevens went as far as to say that he does not expect to hold Hayward -- or teammate Kyrie Irving -- out of any back-to-back sets, as of now. "I'm not sure I anticipate that with either of those guys from everything I've been told thus far," Stevens said. "I think they've really -- they've made great strides."

There has not been much word regarding the severity of the injury since, but general manager Sean Marks indicated on Tuesday that he should be good to go for the start of training camp.

Hayward has reportedly deemed himself 100 percent healthy, though he did acknowledge he's working on getting his explosiveness back and other basketball related things. If things continue to trend in the right direction, look for Hayward to potentially get some short stints throughout the preseason with the ultimate plan of being full go by the time of the Celtics' opener Oct. 16 against Philadelphia.

      New Hornets coach James Borrego indicated Tuesday that his starting lineup is not set entering training camp, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

      While Batum is a clear favorite to start on the wing, it looks as though Borrego will try to spark some competition in camp. Batum's primary competition comes in the form of Jeremy Lamb, Malik Monk and Miles Bridges -- with Lamb being the most likely of the three to see significant minutes. Regardless of Borrego's words, Batum has started every game in which he's played since 2012, so a shift to a bench role seems rather unlikely.

      New Hornets coach James Borrego said Tuesday that he's yet to decide on a starting lineup, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

      This could just be typical coach-speak, but Borrego directly stated that four of the five starting spots will be an open competition, with only Kemba Walker locked in at point guard. Kidd-Gilchrist should be the favorite to slot in at one of the forward spots, but it's possible the Hornets could go in another direction in an effort to spark what was a slightly-above-league-average offense last season. Kidd-Gilchrist has been one of the better and more versatile defensive players in the league since going No. 2 overall in 2012, but his offensive game has lagged behind, and he's demonstrated minimal improvement on that end of the floor over the past six seasons. Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 2017-18, but his complete lack of an outside game -- 36 career 3PA -- remains an impasse in the modern NBA.

      2d ago

      At Friday's media day, Simmons indicated that he doesn't expect to be a three-point threat this season, Kyle Neubeck of The Philly Voice reports.

      While Simmons acknowledged that he's tweaked some "little things" with his inconsistent jumper over the summer, he was rather candid in saying that he won't be much of a threat from beyond the arc. "I'm not going to come in and hit threes this season," Simmons said. "That's not what I'm going to do." The No. 1 overall pick in 2016 took only 11 threes all of last season, failing to connect on a single attempt. Nonetheless, he had one of the best debut campaigns in recent history, averaging 15.8 points, 8.2 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 combined steals/blocks across 81 games. Entering the offseason, the hope was that Simmons would prioritize extending his range, but for the time being, it appears as though he'll double-down on what he already does well. Even without a reliable jumper, Simmons' counting stats make him a valuable fantasy commodity, but the complete lack of three-pointers are a glaring weakness, and the 22-year-old also struggled at the line (56.0% FT) as a rookie.

      It was previously reported that Ball would be limited to start camp, so the real update here is that the guard has been medically cleared by the organization's staff. Still, Ball is going to be brought along slowly and will be gradually integrated into full participation and 5-on-5 scrimmages during camp. While GM Rob Pelinka wouldn't guarantee Ball's availability for the season opener Oct. 18 against Portland, the fact that he's been 100 percent cleared by the medical staff provides plenty of optimism that he should take the court.

      Lin played just one game for the Nets last year before rupturing his patellar tendon, but according to Kevin Chouinard of ATLand29.com, he's "progressing at the rate he is supposed to." What that means for Lin's availability to start training camp is unclear, so it will be something to keep an eye in the coming few weeks. Either way, coach Pierce indicated that Lin will compete for the top point guard job, even with No. 5 overall pick Trae Young in the fold. Considering his draft positioning and the fact that the Hawks aren't expected to make a playoff run, Young should be considered the favorite for now. However, if he struggles early on, Pierce's comments leave open the chance Lin could get some work with the starters.
