by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11:44 am ET) Montero signed a two-way contract Friday with the Pistons, HoopsHype.com reports.

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.

(10:46 am ET) Morris signed a two-way contract Friday with the Nuggets, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

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.


Celtics' Guerschon Yabusele: Signs contract with Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Yabusele (foot) signed a contract with the Celtics on Thursday.

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.


Nicolas Brussino: Let go by Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Brussino will be released by the Mavericks, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.

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.


Heat's Udonis Haslem: Signs one-year deal with Heat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Haslem signed a one-year, minimum deal with the Heat, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

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.


Rockets' Bobby Brown: Signs one-year contract with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Brown signed a one-year extension with the Rockets on Thursday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

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.


Rockets' Troy Williams: Signs three-year extension with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Williams signed a three-year contract extension with the Rockets on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

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.


Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Discussing contract extension with Wolves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Wiggins and the Timberwolves are working on negotiations for a five-year contract extension that could be worth up to $148 million dollars, ESPN reports.

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.


Celtics' Shane Larkin: Agrees to join Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Larkin agreed to a deal Thursday to join the Celtics, international basketball writer David Pick reports.

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.


Spurs' Matt Costello: Earns two-way deal with Spurs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/20/2017) Costello has agreed to sign a two-way deal with the Spurs, ESPN's Zach Lowe reports.

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.
