News: The Magic submitted a qualifying offer to Dedmon on Tuesday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

This offer makes Dedmon a restricted free agent, meaning the Magic can match any offer another team gives him if they desire to do so. The seven-footer provided depth behind Aaron Gordon at power forward, averaging 4.4 points on and 3.9 rebounds in 12 minutes per game, with a 56 percent field goal accuracy rate.

Cady Lalanne: Will play for San Antonio in summer league
Cady Lalanne, C, SA

News: Lalanne will play for the Spurs in the Orlando and Las Vegas Summer Leagues, international basketball writer David Pick reports.

The 6-foot-10 center from Haiti, who was drafted by the Spurs in the second round of the 2015 NBA Draft, averaged 12.4 points, 7.4 boards and 1.2 blocks across 24.7 minutes per game over 56 appearances in the D-League a season ago. He's still viewed as a project by the Spurs and isn't expected to join the team in 2016-17.

Joel Anthony
Pistons' Joel Anthony: Not expected to have team option exercised
Joel Anthony, C, DET
1:12 PM
News: The Pistons are expected to decline Anthony's $2.5 million team option for the 2016-17 season, Pistons.com's Keith Langlois reports.

Despite remaining on the Pistons' roster all of last season with the exception of a four-day window where a trade that would have sent him to the 76ers was voided, Anthony only appeared in 19 games last season, averaging 5.1 minutes per appearance. With the Pistons adding Henry Ellenson to the roster with their first-round pick in last week's draft, it's expected that he'll act as the team's emergency center, with starter Andre Drummond and backup Aron Baynes likely absorbing all of the minutes at the position most nights. Ellenson's arrival seemingly leaves little reason for the Pistons to continue carrying Anthony, a 33-year-old journeyman with limited upside, on the roster.

Henry Sims
Henry Sims: Reaches summer league deal with Nets
Henry Sims, C, BKN
12:42 PM
News: Sims agreed to a summer league deal with the Nets on Sunday, Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reports.

Sims finished the season with the Nets and saw some more extended run over the final two weeks while Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young were shut down for rest, averaging 6.5 points and 5.1 rebounds across 18.8 minutes per game in his 14 total appearances. While he helped get the Nets to the end of a listless season, the team wasn't willing to commit to him for 2016-17, so he'll have to prove himself in summer league. If Sims fares well in the exhibitions, he could earn an invite to the training camp, but may again face another uphill battle toward earning a roster spot.

Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Won't play summer league

News: Kaminsky underwent surgery to remove a small pocket of air in his chest wall, and as a result he will be held out of summer league, Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reports.

Kaminsky will miss roughly six weeks following the procedure, but he should have no trouble getting back to full strength by the start of training camp in the fall. The Hornets begin play at the Orlando Summer League on Saturday, with play wrapping up the following Sunday.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Expects to play in Olympic games this summer

News: Thompson will play for the Canadian national team during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Despite the widespread concern about the Zika virus in Brazil, as well as the fact that Thompson is less than a month removed from the NBA finals, he's decided that he's ready and willing to play for his national team this summer. Often overshadowed by the likes of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, Thompson was a very important part of that championship team for his work on the boards and on defense, so the Canadians will be very happy to hear his decision to join the team.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Will play for Team USA

News: Cousins will play for Team USA during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The bruising Cousins should fit in well with the physical style many international big men choose to embrace, but he'll have an athleticism advantage over many of the other frontcourt players he encounters. Look for Cousins, DeAndre Jordan and Draymond Green to occupy most of the minutes at either power forward or center during the competition.

Willy Hernangomez
Willy Hernangomez: Expected to sign multi-year deal with Knicks
Willy Hernangomez, C, PHI
6/23/2016
News: Hernangomez plans to sign a multi-year contract with the Knicks this summer, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

The Knicks had been expecting all along that Hernangomez, their second-round pick from 2015, would be ready to join the team in advance of the 2016-17 season, and his arrival was made even more likely after the team dealt starting center Robin Lopez away to the Bulls on Wednesday. While the Knicks are expected to replace Lopez in the lineup with a veteran center available in free agency, the 22-year-old Hernangomez could still find himself as a rotation player in his first season. He excelled while playing in Europe's top league last season for Spanish club Real Madrid, averaging 6.1 points and 3.4 rebounds while shooting 65 percent from the field.

Andre Drummond
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Won't play in 2016 Summer Olympics
Andre Drummond, C, DET
6/23/2016
News: Drummond won't play for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.

Drummond cemented himself as one of the game's top centers last season with the Pistons, averaging 16.2 points (on 52.1% shooting from the field), 14.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks across 32.9 minutes per game. Though he received an invite to play for the U.S. and may have been a candidate to start at center for the squad, Drummond decided he was better served taking the summer off to work out on his own. He'll be well rested in advance of the Pistons' training camp in the fall and could take his game to greater heights as he enters his age-23 campaign.

Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Earns spot on Team USA

News: Jordan has earned a spot on Team USA for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

With several NBA stars declining invitations to Rio, Team USA will comprised of many new faces, which would include Jordan, who has yet to play in the Olympics Games. The 27-year-old could figure to be in the starting rotation for Team USA alongside DeMarcus Cousins, who is the only confirmed big man on the roster at this point. Sources report that Pistons' center Andre Drummond has removed his name from consideration, prompting the need for Jordan on the roster.
