by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Celtics to waive Will Bynum, if they can't work out a trade
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:34 pm ET) The Celtics continue to work with the agent for Will Bynum on a trade involving the veteran guard, according to the Boston Herald.

“We’re trying to see if there is something we can do,” agent Mark Bartelstein said.

Bynum is away from the team as he is recovering from a strained hamstring. He has not made a preseason appearance and the Celtics will likely waive Bynum if they can't work out a trade.

"It’s a tough time of year to make a trade," a league source said. "Teams are still trying to get used to their rosters, see what they have. Most likely they have to waive him."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Magic guard Victor Oladipo looking iffy for season opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) It appears doubtful Magic guard Victor Oladipo, who is recovering from a sprained MCL, will be ready in time for the season opener Oct. 28 against the Pelicans, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Oladipo did attempt a few jumpers and made a few dunks at the outset of practice Monday.

"It feels a lot better," Oladipo said. "It's a day-by-day process. A sprained MCL is kind of like a scab. You've just got to let it heal. That's pretty much what I'm doing."


Amar'e Stoudemire enthusiastic as new season approaches
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Only time will tell how many games Knicks veteran forward Amar'e Stoudemire will play and how much he will be able to contribute in 2014-15. However, Stoudemire said he feels healthy entering the season and clearly he isn't short on enthusiasm.

"My joy is there. My love of the game is there," the 32-year-old Stoudemire said, per the New York Post. "I feel like I’m 19 again as far as how much I love to play the game of basketball. I feel youthful. To have that type of feeling again as I had my rookie year, to want to play and just want to be out there and get better as a player is pretty encouraging."

Stoudemire received his first start of the preseason Monday against the Bucks. He had 14 points and six rebounds in close to 24 minutes.

"I thought Amar’e was active, he did some good things. He was a good presence four us," said coach Derek Fisher, who had claimed Stoudemire at center was "something we’ve been thinking about" because of "his versatility at that position."


Thunder star Kevin Durant 'not going to rush' back from injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:46 am ET) Thunder forward Kevin Durant told reporters Tuesday he has "been antsy" since undergoing foot surgery last week. However, Durant cautioned that he has no intentions of returning sooner than the 6-8-week timeframe he was given.

"Nah, I'm not going to rush it all. That's one thing I'm not going to do," Durant said, per ESPN.

Durant is the NBA's reigning MVP after averaging a career-best 32.0 points per game in 2013-14. He also averaged a career-best 5.5 assists and 7.4 rebounds per game last season.
