Lucas will get a shot to make Minnesota's final roster during camp. He spent the 2015-16 season in the D-League. He started 18-of-18 appearances, averaging 17.7 points, 4.9 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.3 three-pointers made in 35 minutes per game.
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.
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.
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.
The terms of Wolters' deal aren't fully known, but considering the Nuggets already have 15 guaranteed contracts on the books for next season, it's unlikely the point guard is a serious contender for a roster spot. The 2013 second-round pick spent all of last season in the Turkish Basketball Super League with Besiktas J.K. before joining the Wizards for summer league play in July.
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.
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.
For the most part, it looks as if Terry will serve as a veteran presence for a relatively young Milwaukee team, but the veteran guard could possibly bring some 3-point shooting off the bench for a team that has worked this offseason to address the need of outside shooting. Either way, the Bucks will want to continue to develop their young core, and considering Terry is coming off a season in Houston where he shot just 35 percent from behind the arc, he likely won't have much of a fantasy impact this season.
Ware was most recently in the NBA during the 2013-14 season, where he participated in 18 games between the Sixers and Nets. He spent some time with ASVEL Basket in France last season, but will attempt an NBA comeback by joining the Wizards for training camp. Ware has a long ways to go to make the team's final roster, but if he does, the 26-year-old guard would be merely a depth option behind the likes of John Wall and Trey Burke at point guard.
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.
