Ian Clark: Set to become unrestricted free agent
Ian Clark, SG, GS

News: Clark failed to receive a qualifying offer from the Warriors, making him an unrestricted free agent, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Warriors extended qualifying offers to both Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli, while Clark and James McAdoo were the odd men out and will head to unrestricted free agency. Clark saw action in a career-high 66 games this past season, posting an average of 3.6 points over nine minutes per outing. The 25-year-old guard will try and catch on with a team for training camp in an attempt to make a regular season roster.

Jodie Meeks
Pistons' Jodie Meeks: Dealt to Orlando
Jodie Meeks, SG, DET
1:08 PM
News: Meeks was traded to the Magic on Wednesday in exchange for a conditional second-round pick, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

In what's essentially a cap-clearing move for Detroit, they'll send the veteran shooting guard to a Magic team that dealt Victor Oladipo to the Thunder on draft night. Meeks isn't likely to start, but he'll join a fairly shallow rotation that currently features second-year guard Mario Hezonja. Orlando will need to add depth this offseason, but Meeks should step into a regular rotational role after appearing in only three games last season due to a fractured foot. Meeks is two years removed from averaging 11.1 points and 1.7 rebounds per game, while shooting 34.9 percent from three for Detroit in 2014-15.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Will suit up for Brooklyn in summer league
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SG, BKN
10:26 AM
News: Hollis-Jefferson will play for the Nets during the summer league, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

Since a broken right ankle limited Hollis-Jefferson to just 29 appearances as a rookie, he should get plenty of run during the summer league while new Nets coach Kenny Atkinson gets a first-hand look at the forward's skills. At just 21 years old, Hollis-Jefferson already profiles as one of the league's better perimeter defenders, but on a Nets squad short on talent, he may need to take on more of a scoring role in his second season. Further developing a three-point shot may be imperative to any dramatic rise in offensive output that Hollis-Jefferson notices in 2016-17, as he hit just 28.6 percent of his tries from distances last season.

Jordan McRae
Cavaliers' Jordan McRae: Team option picked up by Cleveland
Jordan McRae, SG, CLE
9:44 AM
News: The Cavaliers have exercised McRae's $874,636 team option for the 2016-17 season, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

McRae signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers in February, and was able to earn a two-year deal after shining in practice and impressing the team brass with his performance during his limited appearances in games. The 25-year-old rewarded the Cavs' investment in him with a 36-point performance in the regular season finale against the Pistons, when both teams were resting nearly all of their rotation players in advance of their first-round playoff matchup. McRae would go on to make just two appearances in the postseason during the Cavs' run to the title, but he'll have a more legitimate chance at seeing playing time in 2016-17 as he prepares for his first training camp with the organization.

Hollis Thompson
76ers' Hollis Thompson: Fourth-year option picked up
Hollis Thompson, SG, PHI
9:34 AM
News: The Sixers have picked up Thompson's fourth-year team option, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

The move is a no-brainer for Philadelphia, which will pay Thompson just over $1 million next season as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. Thompson is coming off of a 2015-16 campaign in which he averaged 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 28.0 minutes per game.

Mario Hezonja
Magic's Mario Hezonja: Will play for Croatia in Olympic qualifying
Mario Hezonja, SG, ORL
9:22 AM
News: Hezonja will suit up for Croatia in the qualifying tournament for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Hezonja's commitment to his native country means that he won't participate in summer league with the Magic, but the fact that he's still playing basketball in a competitive setting is just as well. The Magic cleared out some depth on the wing by trading Victor Oladipo to the Thunder last week in a four-player deal, but the acquisition of power forward Serge Ibaka means that Aaron Gordon will likely move over to a starting role at small forward. As a result, Hezonja will likely have to settle for a bench role to begin his second NBA season.

Shaun Livingston
Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Has option picked up by Warriors
Shaun Livingston, PG, GS
6/28/2016
News: Livingston will have his $5.8 million option picked up by the Warriors for the 2016-17 season, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

Livingston was already guaranteed $3 million of the contract, but the final $2.8 million of the deal won't become officially guaranteed until Thursday. The Warriors have already stated they've elected to pay the full salary, so Livingston will be with the team for a fourth straight season. Considered Stephen Curry's main backup at point guard, the 30-year-old veteran played a key role for the Warriors when Curry was hurt. However, when Curry's healthy, Livingston usually remains off the fantasy radar in the majority of formats.

Evan Fournier
Evan Fournier: Orlando plans to match any offer sheet
Evan Fournier, SG, ORL
6/28/2016
News: The Magic are expected to match any offer sheet that Fournier receives in free agency, Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders reports.

There's always the possibility that another team that covets Fournier could raise the price out of the Magic's range, but it's apparent Orlando is still willing to overpay to retain the shooting guard's services, if necessary. The Magic likely wouldn't have traded away Victor Oladipo last week if they weren't intending to proceed with Fournier as their starting shooting guard, so it looks as though re-signing the 23-year-old will be the organization's first order of business. Though his production slowed down in the second half of the season, Fournier still had a breakthrough campaign in 2015-16, averaging 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 three-pointers across 32.5 minutes per game in 79 appearances.

Olivier Hanlan
Olivier Hanlan: Will play for Utah's summer league team
Olivier Hanlan, PG, UTA
6/28/2016
News: Hanlan will play for the Jazz's summer league team, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The 42nd overall pick by the Jazz in the 2015 NBA Draft, Hanlan spent the past season in Lithuania as a draft-and-stash prospect, and is expected to remain overseas again in 2016-17, as he remains under contract with Zalgiris. The combo guard will use the summer league as an opportunity to showcase his skills growth to the Jazz, with the hope of earning a roster spot with the team heading into the 2017-18 campaign.

Marco Belinelli
Hornets' Marco Belinelli: Jaw fracture considered minor injury
Marco Belinelli, SG, SAC
6/27/2016
News: Belinelli is dealing with just a minor fracture in his jaw and should be able to play with a mask moving forward, Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Belinelli suffered a broken jaw Sunday during an exhibition game with the Italian national team, but after further diagnosis, it appears the fracture is just a minor one. He's expected to return to the court and will be able to play as long as he's wearing a mask moving forward, which only furthers his chances of being ready for the Hornets' training camp. Belinelli was recently traded to the Hornets and is expected to provide them with a shooting specialist off the bench.
