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."


Mavs forward Chandler Parsons spends offseason bulking up
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:33 am ET) Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons spent the offseason bulking up. Parsons wanted to add muscle because guarding players like Dirk Nowitzki, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love has been a challenge in the past, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"I just think strength was the biggest [challenge] for me," Parsons said. "Offensively, it’s just as tough for them guarding me when I take it out, pick-and-pop and do stuff like that. But I wanted to be able to guard them in the post, not have to front and do stuff like that. I think the added strength will definitely help."


Celtics PF Jared Sullinger in better shape as camp opens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) Celtics power forward Jared Sullinger said he has improved his conditioning since last season, according to MassLive.com.

"Best I ever felt, and hopefully that carries on throughout the season," Sullinger said. "Everybody says they want to be somewhere, but it’s always a couple weeks late. I have the whole preseason and training camp to get to where I need to in order to play the extended minutes I plan for myself to get. I just gotta keep working."

Coach Brad Stevens agreed Sullinger appears to be in better shape, but added he still can improve his conditioning.

"I think he’s in better shape than he was when he got here, certainly, at the start of last year, and really through most of the year. But it’s still about getting in better shape," Stevens said.


76ers rookie K.J. McDaniels opts for one-year, non-guaranteed deal
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:58 am ET) 76ers rookie guard K.J. McDaniels has opted to sign a one-year, non-guaranteed tender that could make him a restricted free agent next July, according to Yahoo Sports.

McDaniels' agent, Mark Bartelstein, would not accept the team's offer of two-guaranteed seasons and two non-guaranteed seasons. 

"The 76ers have a philosophy that they're adhering to, and we totally respect that, but it doesn't fit for K.J. and us," Bartelstein told Yahoo Sports Wednesday. "I just totally disagree with the idea of doing a four-year deal that includes a structure of two non-guaranteed years. We think K.J. is going to be a good player, and it came down to doing a one-year deal and letting the market determine his value.

"There's no hard feelings. The Sixers’ philosophy has worked for them. It just doesn't work for us."


Derrick Rose excited about 'space to move around' in Bulls' offense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:49 am ET) Bulls guard Derrick Rose spoke Tuesday with enthusiasm about Chicago's outlook in 2014-15 after the team made a few key offseason acquisitions and some changes in the game plan, according to NBA.com.

"Just thinking about how I’m actually going to attack in the offense," Rose said. "I’ve got a lot of space now, especially with Pau (Gasol) being able to knock down that li’l 12-foot shot or 15-foot shot. … It’s just going to be space to really move around.

"They’re trying to make the game as simple as possible. If I have an open shot, shoot. If I have a pull-up, shoot it. Shoot a lot more floaters so that people won’t touch my body like they did in the past throughout the entire game. I think that really hurts you I think as an athlete -- you need your years."


Hawks G Jeff Teague testing out prescription goggles
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Hawks guard Jeff Teague will need to wear corrective lenses on the court for the first time in his career. He told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday that he'll test out prescription goggles during training camp.

"I prefer to wear the goggles," Teague said. "The goggles were pretty good today. We’ll see."

Teague averaged 16.5 points, 6.7 assists and 2.6 rebounds over 79 games.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Rockets intend to pick up the fourth-year option on the contracts of Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas, according to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday. Head coach Kevin McHale also indicated that the power forward position is an "open competition" heading into the start of training camp.

Nets giving Brook Lopez the freedom to take more jumpers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Nets head coach Lionel Hollins told reporters he's given center Brook Lopez the freedom to shoot more jumpers this season, per the New York Post.

"It's been a mixture of high post and low post, depending on our set," Lopez said, per the Brooklyn Game. "It's been a lot of moving the ball, we have a lot of smart guys that can move the ball. So we want to take advantage of that."
