Clippers send Jared Dudley to Milwaukee


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Clippers opened up minutes at small forward Tuesday by sending Jared Dudley to the Milwaukee Bucks.

According to Yahoo Sports, Los Angeles will receive Carlos Delfino,  Miroslav Raduljica and a future first-round pick from the Bucks. Dudley averaged 6.9 points in 23.4 minutes per game last season for the Clippers. 


Kevin Love deal morphs into three-team trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) The Cavaliers' acquisition of Kevin Love is set to go down Saturday, and Yahoo.com reports it will end up being a three-team deal.

The Timberwolves will receive Andrew Wiggins , Anthony Bennett and a lottery-protected first-round pick from the Cavaliers in exchange for Love, and are set to move one of those pieces to Philadelphia to complete the deal.

The Wolves will move the first-round pick -- a top-10 protected pick from Miami -- to the 76ers along with Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in exchange for Thaddeus Young, as first reported by the Minnesota Star-Tribune. 


Pacers shopping Roy Hibbert, call Pistons about Greg Monroe


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Pacers are shopping center Roy Hibbert, and they have called the Pistons regarding a potential deal involving restricted free agent Greg Monroe, Detroit Sports 105.1 reports.

There's no word about whether the Pistons would be interested in a Monroe-for-Hibbert spot, but they are pretty well set in the middle with Andre Drummond in the starting lineup. It's a rumor that seemingly has very little chance of coming to fruition.


Rockets sign Kostas Papanikolaou


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Rockets have signed small forward Kostas Papanikolaou .

Papanikolaou gets $4.8 million guaranteed in the upcoming season, with a team option of $4.6 million for the following season. He has been playing in Europe since being drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft.


Report: Wolves to swap Anthony Bennett for Thaddeus Young


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Though the trade can't go official until August 23, the deal reportedly struck between the Cavaliers and Timberwolves will lead to another trade between Minnesota and the 76ers.

The Philadelphia Daily News reported early Friday that Minnesota, upon receiving Anthony Bennett from the Cavs as part of the Kevin Love trade, would then trade him for Thaddeus Young. The Timberwolves have been showing interest in Young since Love stated his desire to be traded.

Meanwhile, the 76ers want to move Young because he's entering his prime at age 26 and only has one additional year left on his contract. Acquiring Bennett would complete a core of young talent to develop over the coming years. Young was one of the most productive forwards in the league last year playing in Brett Brown's up-tempo offense, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. Bennett, on the other hand, failed to make any impact what so ever but did show signs of growth during the Summer League. 


Anthony Bennett a bit more intriguing following trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) After a rookie season that can be charitably described as lost, a change of scenery is probably the best outcome Anthony Bennett could have hoped for this offseason. He got that Thursday, with the news that the long-awaited Kevin Love trade has landed him in Minnesota.

Last year's No. 1 overall pick luckily doesn't have to join the Cavaliers with the pressure of replacing Love as the face of the franchise -- this year's No. 1 pick, Andrew Wiggin, will take that on. Bennett gets to join a Timberwolves team that can give him more consistent playing time than last year's Cavaliers afforded him, but which won't ask him to do more than he is capable.

Bennett might end up starting at power forward for the Wolves, though a bench role seems more likely at this point. He had a disastrous rookie season after entering the season out of shape, but appeared to be in better shape while playing with the Cavaliers during the Summer League in Las Vegas. He still shot the ball poorly in Vegas -- 42.6 percent from the field and just 4 of 16 from three-point range -- but Bennett looked much more capable during his time there.

Based on his rookie season, Bennett has a long way to go before he is contributing at a high level. However, Fantasy owners in deeper category-based leagues should consider taking a chance on the 21-year-old in the later rounds, because he will have the chance to earn a large role if he proves worthy. 


Trade doesn't hurt Kevin Love's potential too much


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Though the move to Cleveland and a stacked Cavaliers roster should make life considerably easier for Kevin Love, should Fantasy owners be moving him down their draft boards a bit after Thursday's news?

Love carried a huge load for the Timberwolves last season, logging 36 minutes per game and finishing the season second in Fantasy scoring overall. He averaged a career-high 26.1 points and 4.4 assists per game, while adding 12.5 rebounds, but will now have to adjust to life as a second or even third option offensively.

With LeBron James and Kyrie Irving already on hand, Love is almost certainly going to take on a smaller scoring role. He attempted 18.5 field goals per game a year ago, which actually led this trio a year ago. However, he is also much more reliant on his teammates setting him up than the other two, so he should have the ball in his hands a little less by default.

Even if Love takes three fewer shots per game next season, there is little reason to drop him too much for Fantasy purposes. With his three-point range and offensive rebounding skills, Love still promises to be one of the most efficient scorers in the league. Even after adjusting his projection to reflect his new reality, Love is still projected for 23.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game next season.

Love likely won't be one of the three most productive Fantasy options in the league again next season, but there is no question he is still a slam dunk first-round pick. He shouldn't go much later than 8th overall on Draft Day. 


Report: Cavs, Wolves finalize Kevin Love deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The long-awaited deal to send Kevin Love to the Cavaliers has been agreed to, according to a Yahoo.com report Thursday.

Though the deal cannot be officially finalized until Aug. 23, the Timberwolves are expected to acquire the last two No. 1 overall picks in the deal, in the form of forwards Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. They will also reportedly receive a 2015 first-round pick in the deal.

The report also indicates the Cavaliers have received a commitment from Love that he will opt out of his current contract next offseason and re-sign a five-year max contract worth $120 million. 


Heat add Shawne Williams on two-year deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Heat signed forward Shawne Williams to a fully guaranteed minimum salary contract for the 2014-15 season, reports the Miami Herald. The deal also includes a team option for 2015-16.

Williams appeared in 36 games for the Lakers last season, after spending the 2012-13 season out of the NBA. He averaged 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, while also spending time in the D-League. 


Kings, Knicks agree to four-play trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Knicks and Kings pulled off a minor trade involving four players Thursday, USA Today reports.

The Kings will acquire guard Wayne Ellington and forward Jeremy Tyler in exchange for forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw, according to the report. The Kings will also receive a second-round pick in the 2016 draft.

The Kings are likely to waive Tyler, according to the report, and might not keep Ellington around for long either. The Knicks have opted to guarantee the $915,000 salary for Acy next season, while Outlaw enters the final season of a contract that will pay him $3 million for 2014-15. 


Doctor: Paul George's injury could need 12-18 months to heal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Pacers forward Paul George will spend the next three days in a Las Vegas hospital following successful surgery to repair his broken right leg Friday.

George suffered an open tibula-fibula fracture during a scrimmage for Team USA Friday, and at this point the Pacers have no expected timetable for George's possible recovery. However, Dr. Patrick Kersey, who treated Louisville guard Kevin Ware following a similar injury, told NBA.com George could need 12-18 months to fully heal.

George's 2014-15 season is in doubt following this injury, though Ware was back on the floor less than eight months following his injury. The Pacers will likely begin carving out a recovery schedule in the coming months. 


Paul George suffers gruesome leg injury in Team USA scrimmage


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Pacers forward Paul George suffered a gruesome right leg injury while playing for Team USA during showcase scrimmage in Las Vegas on Friday.

George sustained the injury while contesting a layup from James Harden. He banged his right leg against the basket stanchion, likely suffering a horrific fracture. He was immediately attended by a medical staff and had a splint placed on his leg before he was stretchered off the court. The game was called after the incident.

George had a breakout season for the Pacers in 2013-14, averaging 21.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.9 steals in 80 games. He will likely miss a significant period of time moving forward.

Bulls have not guaranteed Pau Gasol a starting job


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Though the Bulls made him their marquee addition this offseason, the Chicago Sun-Times reports Tuesday the team has made no guarantees about Pau Gasol's role.

Gasol, who has started all but 13 of his NBA games in his 14 seasons, has not been guaranteed a starting spot for the Bulls this season. He joins a crowded frontcourt that already features Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, as well as fellow additions Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic. Gasol will likely vie for a starting spot with Gibson, but should see time at power forward and center.

Gasol comes to the Bulls on a three-year deal, after averaging 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game in 60 appearances -- all starts -- with the Lakers last season. 


Wesley Johnson re-signs with Lakers for one year


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Lakers announced the re-signing of forward Wesley Johnson Monday, though terms of the deal have not yet been announced.

Johnson appeared in 79 games for the injury-bitten Lakers last season, and put together the most productive season of his career as a result. He averaged 9.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. 


Jan Vesely signing with Turkish team


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Wizards forward Jan Vesely is expected to sign with Fenerbache Ulker of the Turkish Basketball League according to Sportando, likely bringing an end to the former lottery pick's time in the NBA.

Over three disappointing seasons, the 2011 No. 6 overall pick averaged just 3.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in 162 appearances. 


Serge Ibaka still recovering from ruptured calf


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Thunder forward Serge Ibaka played through a ruptured calf late in the playoffs last season, and told Bleacher Report Monday he is still not fully healed.

"I'm not 100 percent back yet, but I'm getting better," Ibaka said. "I'm trying to get back in shape and it's going to take time."

Ibaka was intiailly given season-ending prognosis as a result of the injury, but came back for the final four games of the Thunder's six-game series loss to the Spurs. He is planning to play in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, and will presumably be fully healthy by then.

Ibaka led the lead in blocks for the fourth straight season, while averaging career-highs across the board. He put up 15.1 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 81 games. 


Xavier Henry re-ups with Lakers for one year


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Lakers announced the signing of forward Xavier Henry to a one-year contract Friday.

Henry, was productive when healthy for the Lakers last season, averaging 10.0 points and 2.7 rebounds per game in 43 appearances. He is recovering from wrist and knee surgeries this offseason.  


Mavericks add Ivan Johnson for training camp


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Mavericks announced the signing of forward Ivan Johnson Tuesday, after he spent a season playing in China.

Johnson was last in the NBA when he spent two seasons with the Hawks. He receives an unguaranteed deal from the Mavericks for training camp, after averaging 6.5 points per game over his two seasons in Atlanta.  


Blake Griffin has a small fracture in his back


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Though it wasn't cited in his statement to the media, one of the reason's Blake Griffin will miss the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup relates to a small fracture in his back.

According to ESPN, the injury, which he sustained in the playoffs, isn't considered serious, but he and the Clippers would rather be safe than sorry. This makes sense considering Griffin injured his knee in 2012 during a Team USA practice prior to the Summer Olympics.

Griffin enjoyed a top-notch statistical season last year, averaging 24.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. 


Blake Griffin, Kevin Love withdraw from Team USA activities


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Team USA will be without two of its star power forwards for the August FIBA World Cup, as Blake Griffin and Kevin Love both withdrew from participation.

According to the AP, Love wants to be cautious and not risk injury while seeking a trade from the Timberwolves.

Griffin said in a statement that he appreciated the invite but would decline the opportunity in order to focus his energy on improving the Clippers. 


Report: Omri Casspi finalizing one-year deal with Kings


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) After being released by the Pelicans earlier in the week, forward Omri Casspi cleared waivers and is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Kings, according to ESPN on Friday.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

At this point, it is not clear how serious the injury is, but Lewis will require surgery, the team announced. The 34-year-old was expected to sign a one-year deal with the Mavericks, but his next move is not yet known. 


Report: Bulls offer three players for Kevin Love


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) A rumor surfaced early Wednesday that indicated the Chicago Bulls would be willing to give up three players to obtain forward Kevin Love. According to SheridanHoops.com, Chicago has offered the Timberwolves bench stud Taj Gibson, first-round pick Doug McDermott and recently signed Spanish star Nikola Mirotic for Love. 

It's been speculated that rumors including Chicago are merely smokescreens to coax the Cavaliers into adding more to their reported offer. The report suggests that should Cleveland sweeten the deal by including a second future first rounder in addition to Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and the initial future first round pick, that Cleveland would have a better chance of stealing Love away from the Bulls. 

The Timberwolves would be wise to do everything in their power to speed up this process, considering Love is set to become a free agent next season and has already said that he will test the market. 


Cavaliers, Jazz agree to four-player trade


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The Jazz have agreed to trade John Lucas, Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy to the Cavaliers in exchange for Carrick Felix, $1 million and a future second-round pick, Yahoo! Sports reports.

The trade gives the Cavaliers three non-guaranteed contracts, which could help with the logistics of a potential Kevin Love acquisition. Felix signed a four-year deal last offseason and is still due more than $1.75 million over the next two seasons.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Free agent forward Robbie Hummel informed ESPN on Monday that he has signed a one-year deal worth approximately $1 million to remain with the Timberwolves. Hummel averaged 3.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.4 minutes over 53 games.
