Jason Terry
Bucks' Jason Terry: Signs contract
Jason Terry, SG, HOU
8/22/2016
News: Terry officially signed with the Bucks on Monday, Eric Pincus of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

The 39-year-old veteran has been in the process of finalizing a deal with the Bucks and will now sign on as a mentor to some of the Bucks' younger backcourt players. Terry should be a low-end rotational player in his first year with the team and will likely struggle to see minutes worthy of a fantasy pickup. However, he'll give the Bucks a consistent three-point shooter off the bench to plug and play when needed, which is an added bonus to the veteran leadership he should be able to provide.

Marcus Paige
Jazz's Marcus Paige: Signs rookie contract
Marcus Paige, PG, UTA
8/22/2016
News: Paige signed a contract with the Jazz on Monday, Jody Genessy of Deseret News reports.

The Jazz currently have a bevy of options at point guard on the roster, including the likes of George Hill, Dante Exum, Shelvin Mack and Raul Neto. Paige will serve as a depth option throughout training camp, but unless his contract with the Jazz is fully guaranteed, the recent second-round pick of the 2016 NBA Draft isn't guaranteed a roster spot once the regular season approaches. Even if he makes the roster, Paige would likely struggle to find significant rotational minutes.

Semaj Christon
Thunder's Semaj Christon: Signs with OKC
Semaj Christon, PG, OKC
8/21/2016
News: Christon signed a contract with the Thunder on Saturday.

Since getting selected with the 55th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Christon has been a "stash-and-develop" player for the Thunder, seeing action in the D-League and the Italian Serie A Basketball League over the past two seasons. The point guard was a standout performer for the Thunder's entry in the Orlando Summer League this past July, and he'll now be given the chance to vie for a roster spot in training camp. However, with 15 guaranteed contracts already on the books for the Thunder 2016-17 following the recent signing of veteran Ronnie Price, who will presumably serve as the team's third-string point guard, Christon could face an uphill battle to break camp with the team. Barring unforeseen changes with the Thunder roster in the next two months, look for Christon to head back to the D-League to begin the regular season.

Darren Collison
Kings' Darren Collison: Court date gets pushed back again
Darren Collison, PG, SAC
8/21/2016
News: Collison's court case for two domestic violence charges is now set to begin Sept. 8, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

The court date has been postponed multiple times already, but with the start regular season more than two months away, it's still expected that the case will be heard and a ruling will be made before that time. The NBA will likely won't make a decision on a possible suspension for Collison until the legal process has run its course.

John Wall
Wizards' John Wall: Recovery remains on track
John Wall, PG, WAS
8/20/2016
News: Wall (knee) is progressing well from offseason surgery, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. "I just came from the doctor and I'm right where I'm supposed to be but I'm not in a rush," said Wall on Saturday.

Buckner reports that Wall has been working out twice a day and getting shots up, but he hasn't quite progressed to playing one-on-one. Still, the season is over a month away, so it's not unusual for a player like Wall to be taking a measured approach to his recovery in order to not push things too quickly. By every indication, Wall remains on schedule with his recovery.

Nick Young
Lakers' Nick Young: Likely to be traded or waived
Nick Young, SG, LAL
8/18/2016
News: The Lakers aren't expected to retain Young for the upcoming season, Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding reports.

Young is due $5.44 million for 2016-17 and holds a $5.66 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but the 31-year-old's declining play last season coupled with his fractured relationship with teammate D'Angelo Russell that stemmed from a controversial leaked video has left the Lakers anxious to move on. Given that he's shot a combined 35.3 percent from the field across the last two seasons and doesn't offer much impact on the defensive end, it's unclear if Young is even an NBA-caliber player at this point in his career, so a trade isn't guaranteed to materialize. It's more likely that the Lakers just write Young off as a sunk cost and release him before the season begins.

Tony Parker
Spurs' Tony Parker: Returns to action Wednesday
Tony Parker, PG, SA
8/17/2016
News: Parker (toe) finished with 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound and four assists during Wednesday's 92-67 loss to Spain.

Parker was held out of France's matchup with the USA earlier in the week due to a toe injury, but was back on the floor Wednesday and didn't appear to have any issues with it. By taking the loss, France has been eliminated from play, which likely ends Parker's Olympic career. He should be back to full strength for the start of the NBA's training camp.

Beno Udrih
Heat's Beno Udrih: To re-sign with Heat
Beno Udrih, PG, MIA
8/17/2016
News: Udrih will re-sign with the Heat on a one-year, veteran's minimum contract, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The Heat waived Udrih in late-February, negotiating a buyout after the veteran underwent season-ending surgery on his left foot. The thought all along was that the two sides might reunited in 2016-17, and it looks as though that will be the case. Coach Erik Spoelstra lauded Udrih for his veteran leadership, though the 34-year-old isn't likely to hold more than a minor role off the bench.

Jrue Holiday
Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Working out without restriction
Jrue Holiday, PG, NO
8/16/2016
News: Holiday (eye) said Tuesday that he's working out without restriction, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Holiday underwent season-ending surgery in April to repair a fractured right orbital wall, but he's since recovered and is participating in voluntary offseason workouts. The point guard is expected back at full strength when camp opens in October, and he'll look to finally stay healthy after missing a combined 107 games over the last three seasons. Holiday is expected to wear protective goggles to begin next season.

Ben McLemore
Kings' Ben McLemore: Not expected to sign extension before deadline
Ben McLemore, SG, SAC
8/15/2016
News: McLemore and the Kings aren't expected to agree on a contract extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, Bobby Marks of Yahoo! Sports reports.

McLemore, the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, is entering the final season of his rookie contract, but with the Kings actively trying to trade him for the past year, it doesn't seem as though he's viewed as a part of the team's future plans. The 23-year-old regressed badly in his third NBA campaign in 2015-16, averaging 7.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals while shooting 42.9 percent from the floor across 21.2 minutes per game, more than 11 minutes fewer than he'd averaged the year before. With the Kings bringing in Arron Afflalo this offseason to start at shooting guard, McLemore's role may decline even further.
