Montero was most recently waived by the Heat in 2016 after spending training camp with them, and he'll now have another shot at the league in Detroit. Montero played in summer league for both the Mavericks and Kings this year and will likely spend majority of the 2017-18 season in the G League upon singing this deal.
Morris was the 51st overall pick in the 2017 draft after a very successful four-year career at Iowa State. The Nuggets are already like already satisfied with their depth at point guard, as they have Jamal Murray, Jameer Nelson Emmanuel Mudiay all capable of playing the position. So, in an effort to keep Morris within the franchise, he'll likely spend most of his rookie season playing in the G League.
The terms of Yabusele's deal haven't been disclosed, so it remains to be seen if it's a guaranteed contract for the upcoming season or if it's a two-way pact that'd keep him in the G-League for most of the year. Either way, Yabusele will be with the Celtics during training camp after being the 16th overall selection in the 2016 NBA Draft. Last season, Yabusele played for the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association, before coming to the United States to play for the Maine Red Claws in the G-League. With the Red Claws, Yabusele averaged 12.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 27.3 minutes, while also shooting 49 percent from the floor. Even if he does make the Celtics' regular-season roster, Yabusele could struggle to field minutes in a loaded frontcourt.
Despite showing some late-season promise at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, the Mavericks aren't entirely sold on his future development, so they've decided not to guarantee his contract by its due date. That sends Brussino back to the open free agent market and while there could be some interest from teams in need of depth on the wing, there's a chance Brussino ultimately ends up back overseas in an attempt to restore his value. He played in 54 games for Dallas, averaging 2.8 points and 1.7 rebounds across 9.6 minutes per contest.
Haslem has called Miami home for his entire NBA career, and he'll be a part of the franchise for at least one more year after signing a deal Thursday. It has been a few years since the veteran has played a crucial role on the court for the Heat, but he'll continue to serve as a key veteran presence and mentor for the team.
Brown was a minor contributor for the Rockets during the 2016-17 campaign, helping serve as a backup to Patrick Beverley at point guard with an average of 2.5 points over 4.9 minutes in 25 games. He should play a similar role after signing a one-year extension and while Beverley is no longer with the Rockets, Chris Paul was added in his place, which should leave little to no minutes for Brown.
Williams, a former undrafted rookie out Indiana, began the 2016-17 campaign with the Grizzlies, playing in 24 games, while notching 13 starts as an injury fill-in. However, he wasn't overly impressive with extended playing time and was eventually let go in January. Once he cleared waivers, the Rockets took that opportunity to sign him to a 10-day contract, before inking Williams to a deal for the remainder of the season. He was solid in limited minutes during that short stint, playing in six games (three starts) and averaging 9.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 23.2 minutes. After signing a three-year extension on Thursday, Williams should slot back in as an additional forward in the frontcourt, but likely won't see enough minutes to be a fantasy relevant. The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed.
Through three seasons in Minnesota, Wiggins has played and started in all but one of his 246 career games and has seen his scoring average rise considerably each year. He is coming off a season where he averaged a team-best 23.6 points per game to go along with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists. With the arrival of Jimmy Butler, however, Wiggins may see his numbers drop a tad, but the 22-year-old has already done more than enough to prove that the Timberwolves should commit to him longterm. It will likely still take some time before all the details of the extension are ironed out, but it looks as if Minnesota is heavily invested in their young star.
Larkin played for three years on three different teams in the NBA before heading to the Euroleague last season. There, he played for Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz and averaged 13.1 points, 5.7 assists and 2.7 rebounds across 29 minutes per game. Now, the point guard is ready to take a second chance at the NBA in Boston, but barring any injuries, Larkin will likely be buried in the team's backcourt rotation.
Costello was a standout during the NBA Las Vegas Summer League earlier this month, pulling down an event-best 12.3 rebounds per game as a member of the Timberwolves' squad. The undrafted 2016 prospect won't be in line for immediate playing time in San Antonio, but the two-way contract allows for Costello to develop in the G-League.
