      Clippers' Milos Teodosic: Has contract fully guaranteed
      2h ago

      Teodosic will not be waived by the Clippers, making his contract for the 2018-19 season full guaranteed, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      Teodosic opted into the final year of his contract back in June, but Sunday served as the deadline for the Clippers to waive him without penalty. The point guard now will have the $6.3 million option he elected to take fully guaranteed as a result. He does, however, have more competition for minutes at point guard this season with Patrick Beverley back healthy along with the drafting of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who was very impressive during summer league.

      Cavaliers' Billy Preston: Near double-double off bench in quarterfinal win
      3h ago

      Preston delivered 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and one block across 23 minutes during the Cavaliers' 82-68 win over the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

      Preston continues to validate the Cavaliers' decision to sign him to a two-way contract with his play in Las Vegas, as he's consistently put together double-digit scoring tallies while also remaining productive on the boards. The 20-year-old will look to continue impressing in Monday's semifinal-round matchup against the Lakers.

      Sexton pitched in 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 27 minutes during the Cavaliers' 82-68 win over the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

      The first-round pick was instrumental in the Cavaliers advancing, putting together yet another strong all-around performance. Sexton's scoring total checked in second only to John Holland's on the team, and he figures to play a pivotal role once again in Monday's semifinal-round matchup against the Lakers.

      McKinnie contributed 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

      The 25-year-old big man's scoring total co-led the first unit, allowing him to finish off his Las Vegas tenure in impressive fashion. McKinnie was serviceable in summer league play, but it remains to be seen if it was enough to garner him a training camp invite. If not, McKinnie could find himself back in the G-League, where he averaged 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 29.9 minutes over 35 games in the 2017-18 campaign.

      Richardson co-led the starting five in scoring with Alfonzo McKinnie while churning out his second 14-point effort in as many days. The 22-year-old seemingly made an airtight case for a training camp invite with his play in Las Vegas, as he was one of the Raptors' most reliable sources of offense during six summer league games.

      The big man's performance was one of his best of summer league play, as he made his final case for a training camp invite. Boucher particularly gave a good account of himself on the defensive end (3.0 blocks per game before Sunday's four-block effort) in Las Vegas, and he could conceivably carve out a role in the Raptors' frontcourt rotation if he's able to stick with the team long enough to show what he can do in preseason.

      Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Target return date to be established soon
      5h ago

      Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers said last week that Cousins (Achilles) will have a rehab appointment in mid-July, which should help established a target timeline for the big man's return to the court, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

      Myers noted that the Warriors inked Cousins to a one-year deal primarily with the objective of having him at full health for the postseason, but the team intends to turn him loose as soon as doctors give him the green light. Cousins previously suggested that he doesn't expect to be ready to go for training camp, but it remains unclear how much regular-season action he might miss. While Cousins is on the mend, Jordan Bell, Draymond Green and David West are expected to handle most of the early-season minutes at center.

      As expected, Adebayo, a veteran by summer league standards, will get Saturday's game off. In five appearances, he's averaged 14.0 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.5 minutes.

      Frye agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Cavaliers, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

      Frye played 44 games with the Cavs last season -- 4.8 points in 12.4 minutes on 33.3 percent shooting from deep -- before being traded to the Lakers, where he suited up for just nine contests. It seems unlikely he'll garner a bigger role this season, as he just turned 35 years old.

      Jones signed a two-way contract with the Warriors on Saturday.

      Jones has played just 174 minutes across two seasons with the Warriors, though that's nothing too unexpected considering the team's deep, skilled rotation and the fact that Jones was the 30th overall pick. In signing a two-way deal, that trend will continue, as he's set to spend the vast majority of next year in the G-League.

      The big man maximized his opportunities in the desert, finishing with impressive averages of 15.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 2.0 blocks across 29.7 minutes over three games. Bryant will hope the trio of strong efforts leads to a training camp invite, where he'll look to establish a role behind offseason acquisition Dwight Howard at center.

      Williams (knee) will not play in Sunday's summer league game against the Trail Blazers, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

      It's not a huge surprise to see the Celtics continue to hold Williams out while he nurses a sore knee. It seems pretty safe to say that regardless of how far Boston advances in the summer league, Williams will remain on the sideline as a precautionary measure.

      Ellenson paced the Pistons in scoring for the second straight day, although his shooting percentage took a serious dive Sunday. To his credit, however, the floor-spacing big man remained aggressive despite his struggles, capping off a strong summer league tenure in fine fashion. Ellenson will now look to carry over his Vegas success into training camp and preseason.

      Ellenson had a rough shooting night last Wednesday while draining only three of 17 shots against Minnesota, but he was much sharper Saturday, adding to what has been a strong summer league resume overall. The third-year big man is now averaging 14.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.2 steals across 30.4 minutes over five games, perhaps giving him some momentum as he heads into his fourth training camp with the Pistons.

      Yabusele struggled with his shot Saturday but was able to put up a double-double while chipping in across the board in the narrow 2 point victory. He continues to have himself a nice time in Vegas and has certainly pushed the case for more playing time across the regular season. The depth on the roster is, of course, going to be an ongoing issue for Yabusele but he should still be able to see some run given the talent and subsequent margins of victory.

      Bolden was drafted by the Sixers in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft, but the 6-10 center was already playing overseas in Serbia after leaving UCLA early. He opted to stay overseas last season but it was only a matter of time before Bolden would make his way back to the Sizers. After a decent beginning in the Summer League, he sort of cooled off and only averaged five points and seven rebounds over just two games played. This wasn't the result Sixers brass really expected, so his future is up in the air. He could return overseas or end up as a G-League participant in the US.

      The rookie has consistently turned heads in Las Vegas, with Sunday's stellar effort the latest example. Mykhailiuk was already averaging 14.0 points (on 48.0 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 23.8 minutes over four games heading into Sunday's action, and partly due to his production against the Pistons, he'll have additional opportunity to continue impressing in summer league play during the semifinal round.

      House's offensive haul led all players on the afternoon, as his shot was sharp from all over the court.

House subsequently made a strong impression in Las Vegas, posting averages of 16.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 27.0 minutes over five contests.

      To his credit, Brown didn't let his shooting struggles deter him, as he remained aggressive enough to log a team-high number of visits to the charity stripe. The fourth-year guard saw action in 109 games with the Nets over his first two pro seasons before suiting up for only four with the Rockets last year. He's shown the ability for the occasional offensive outburst in the past, and he thrived in G-League play last year with 16.8 points (on 44.7 percent shooting), 4.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 steals across 31.9 minutes over 31 games (27 starts).

      Yogi Ferrell: Becomes unrestricted free agent
      5h ago

      The Mavericks rescinded Ferrell's $2.92 million qualifying offer Friday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

      The play of rookie second-round pick Jalen Brunson in the summer league may have embolded the Mavericks to pull their $2.9 million qualifying offer for Ferrell, who was believed to be leaning toward accepting the deal with few teams expressing interest in him as a restricted free agent. Ferrell should draw more intrigue now that he's available on the open market, but he'll still likely have to settle for a short-term deal. The third-year point guard averaged 10.2 points in 27.8 minutes per game and shot a respectable 37.3 percent from distance a season ago, but his lack of size (six feet, 180 pounds) makes him a liability on defense against longer, bigger guards.

Factoring in Saturday's production, he compiled averages of 16.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 3.0 steals across 30.0 minutes over five games.

He made much more of a splash during G-League play last season, when he averaged 13.8 points (on 45.7 percent shooting, including 45.1 percent from three-point range), 8.6 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 39.5 minutes over 37 games. Arcidiacono was extended a qualifying offer by the Bulls earlier this offseason, so the team presumably will look to continue extending him solid playing time during preseason in order to further his development.
