Blazers PF LaMarcus Aldridge worked on shooting 3-pointers in offseason
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:35 pm ET) Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts expects power forward LaMarcus Aldridge to attempt more than the 15 3-pointers he took last season during the 2014-15 campaign, according to The Oregonian. However, it doesn't appear Aldridge will become a 3-point specialist any time soon.

"This summer, I worked on it a lot more, so we'll see this season," he said. "If it's there, I'll take it. I'm not going to force it at all."


DeMar DeRozan feels he can play 40 minutes a game for Raptors
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(1:16 pm ET) Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan said he spent a lot of time in the offseason working on his ball-handling skills in order to make him an even more dangerous player in 2014-15, according to the Toronto Sun.

"I kind of wanted to tighten up on a lot of things I didn’t feel comfortable with last year," DeRozan said. "I got a lot stronger, I really worked on my conditioning. … I could probably play a 40-minute game (now).

"I was trying to be more ambidextrous, somewhat, try to get more comfortable with my off hand, finishing with my off hand, doing a lot of little things that probably go unnoticed. I’m just trying to find new challenges, honestly, within myself to find something else to get better."


Jazz center Enes Kanter gets green light to attempt more 3-pointers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) Jazz center Enes Kanter has attempted just three 3-pointers over his first three seasons in the NBA. However, Kanter said he has finally been given the green light to start shooting more often from long range, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

"I’m rehabbing in Chicago and coach Quin [Snyder] came to visit me and he said, ‘You know you’re going to shoot some 3s this year,’" Kanter said. "I was just shocked that the first time he met me, he give me that confidence. It means a lot."


Raptors expect Jonas Valanciunas to be 'more involved' on offense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:01 pm ET) Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas said he spent part of the summer working with former NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon, according to the Toronto Sun.

"I worked a lot this summer. I was working out with Hakeem with a running coach, so I think that’s going to help me out a lot, especially in the low post," Valanciunas said. "He’s one of the greatest players. He moves fantastic, so I want to get something from him and I want to use something that he taught me."

The work with Olajuwon could pay dividends for Valanciunas since his teammates are expecting him to have a bigger role on offense this season.

"We have to start games off (feeding Valanciunas in the post), we need him, we’re going to put some pressure on him to score the ball for us," guard Kyle Lowry said. "We can’t just do all guard-oriented types of things. We have to make sure he’s more involved and have to put a little pressure on him to score the ball."


Manu Ginobili has no restrictions as Spurs camp opens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been a full participant in practice to open training camp and has not dealt with any lingering issues after being diagnosed with a stress fracture of the fibula days after the NBA Finals last season, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

"(I've done) everything," Ginobili said after Tuesday's practice. "There is a point when the practice gets too long or too rough when Pop (coach Gregg Popovich) gives me a little extra rest, but I have not been told, 'You can't do this.'

"Maybe related to my conditioning, I am a little behind, but I'm actually very happy with what I've been doing and how I'm playing, considering the summer I had. Not bad."


Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh hopes to be fully cleared in 2-3 weeks
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:41 pm ET) Hornets rookie forward Noah Vonleh said he hopes to be fully cleared in the next 2-3 weeks after undergoing sports hernia surgery in early September, according to The Charlotte Observer. Vonleh is limited to working out on an ellipitcal machine, as well as some light shooting and jogging.

Hornets starting lineup shaping up as Stephenson, Williams assigned roles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:33 pm ET) Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Monday he plans to start Marvin Williams at power forward ahead of Cody Zeller and Lance Stephenson will start at either small forward or shooting guard, according to the Charlotte Observer.

With center Al Jefferson and point guard Kemba Walker also securing spots in the starting lineup, the final spot will come down to shooting guard Gerald Henderson or small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Clifford is really excited about the potential Stephenson brings to the lineup.

"I’ve been around Kobe (Bryant) and (Tracy) McGrady and (Latrell) Sprewell in his prime. Lance isn’t there yet," Clifford said. "Lance was 13 1/2 (ppg.) last year. He’s young and talented. His efficiency shooting the ball, getting his turnovers down (need to improve). For us to talk about him as a legitimate All-Star player who we can play through, that’s the jump he needs to make and he knows that."


Mario Chalmers 'very focused' as Heat camp opens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:01 pm ET) After a poor performance in the playoffs last season, Heat guard Mario Chalmers is focused on proving his postseason struggles were a fluke, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"My situation is a little bit different," Chalmers said. "Coming into this season, I'm a lot more hungry. I'm very focused for this camp."

Chalmers said he overhauled his approach, which included a new conditioning program. He said he has dropped 10-15 pounds and also feels a lot quicker.

"I don't want to let anybody down," Chalmers said. "And since there is a lot expected of me, I'm going to go out there and give it the best I've got."


Bucks coach feels O.J. Mayo can be solid contributor in 2014-15
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:44 am ET) Bucks coach Jason Kidd said he sees guard O.J. Mayo playing an important role in 2014-15 after Mayo fell out of favor last season with former coach Larry Drew. Mayo played in just 11 games after Jan. 25 last season and did not play in 17 of the Bucks' final 19 games.

"He's 26, 27 (on Nov. 5)," Kidd said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's young. He's a big part of this team. He has the Milwaukee on the front (of his jersey) and that's where it starts. He's come in very positive, talking on defense and offensively. He's making plays for his teammates."

Mayo is excited about the game plan Kidd is implementing.

"It's pretty much a pro offense," Mayo said. "It's just making reads and making the right play. It will be a lot more up-tempo, and it fits our game and our style of play a little better than maybe last year. We've got a lot of offensive players."


Jazz begin contract talks with Enes Kanter, Alec Burks
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:38 am ET) Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said this week he has begun talks with Enes Kanter and Alec Burks about contract extensions, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Utah has until the end of October to reach an agreement or both players will become restricted free agents in July.

"They’re both valued members and we’re really proud of where they’re at as people and as players," Lindsey said. "We’ll see if we can get something done early … but we anticipate both of them being with the Jazz for a long time."
