Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson are out for Thursday against the Lakers.

It's likely just rest for SGA, who has been marvelous throughout his time in Vegas. Besides the defense, Gilgeous-Alexander has shown he can get buckets at all levels in halfcourt offense. His length on defense should help him get minutes as a shooting guard and in three-guard lineups.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed at 242 pounds on the training camp roster.

That puts him nine pounds heavier than last year. If you've seen Giannis at all this offseason, you've probably noticed how ripped he looks. Antetokounmpo is still just 23 years old and it's hard to believe he could get even stronger. After a major leap forward last year, he could have an even bigger role with Jabari Parker out of the picture. He's locked in as a top-four pick.

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Wolves have agreed to a five-year, $190 million super-maximum extension, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

He's the toast of the Towns. In what has been a week of bad news in Minnesota, the Wolves finally lock up one of the best young players in the NBA. Despite some controversy, there was almost no doubt that the Wolves were going to sign Towns because it's almost impossible for KAT to turn down this type of money. Sure, he's been the most durable player in the NBA with his 82-82-82 games-played log per season, but now he has financial security for life. With Jimmy Butler headed out of town, KAT is likely set for a career year after he's improved his efficiency, free throw rate and several other stats in each of his three seasons. He's locked in as a top-two pick in fantasy leagues in basically all formats.

The Timberwolves have been made aware that Jimmy Butler will not be available for on-court activities at the outset of training camp, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

Butler has also been granted permission to not participate in Minnesota's media day on Monday. Although it first appeared that the coach Tom Thibodeau and the Wolves would stand pat and refuse to deal Butler, it's looking more and more likely that this relationship has run its course and Minnesota will move Butler sooner or later. The question now is what sort of package will the Wolves demand in exchange for Jimmy Buckets. Stay tuned.

The Suns signed De'Anthony Melton to a two-year, $2.3 million deal.

The Suns were able to reel in Melton from a trade with the Rockets after Houston stole him at No. 46 in the draft. It's fair to say Melton's summer league caught Phoenix's eye, and he wasn't just a throw-in player based on some quotes from Rockets GM Daryl Morey. There are multiple reports saying the Suns are after a PG, but for now Melton may have a shot at a rotation spot out of the gate. If the Suns aren't able to add a PG, Melton could be an option as a steals and 3-pointers specialists on one of the fastest teams in the league.

There is a "real possibility" Jimmy Butler may not report to training camp if a trade has not been consummated, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

Earlier, Woj reported that the Wolves are shutting down trade offers on Butler right now, so it would appear Butler is willing to take his trade request to another level. It sounds like this relationship is beyond repair, but the Wolves may not be willing to accommodate Jimmy's list of the Clippers, Nets and Knicks as possible destinations. If Butler is still on the roster for most of camp, it'll create a major distraction for the team. Expect several updates this weekend.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said he wants to have Carmelo Anthony off the floor when P.J. Tucker is on and vice versa.

The Rockets are expected to start these two along with Chris Paul, James Harden and Clint Capela, so it'll be very interesting to see which of the two forwards plays better with CP3 or Harden -- Melo is likely better next to CP3. MDA also has said he is expecting James Ennis to take a ton of threes, so there's a very good chance he'll be playing next to Melo and Tucker. Anthony should get plenty of chances to shoot threes, but there may not as much opportunity to create on his own.

General manager Dell Demps said Solomon Hill is in "phenomenal shape" right now.

Demps also said that Hill came back before he was 100 percent, so that explains what was essentially a lost season. There's a very good chance that Hill could wind up as the starting small forward, which could push out Elfrid Payton or E'Twaun Moore. Even if Hill starts, he would likely be a defense-first addition to the lineup and would be near the bottom for usage rate among NBA starters.

General manager Dell Demps said Cheick Diallo has probably put on 10-12 pounds of muscle.

Demps added that Diallo hasn't lost a step, maintaining his speed and energy. Diallo's third Vegas trip was a success back in July, and it's clear he has some potential as an offensive weapon. However, the edition of Julius Randle serves as a roadblock for Diallo this season. For now, he's really just a last-round lotto ticket in deep leagues.
Sep 21 - 3:13 PM

Frank Jackson (ankle) has minor restrictions for training camp, according to general manager Dell Demps.

The GM added that Jackson is cleared, though. A left ankle sprain in the first half of summer league ended his time at the end, but he looked extremely explosive with 13 points in the first half. The Pelicans led the NBA in pace last year and it's no guarantee that Elfrid Payton can hold the job, so maybe Jackson can push for minutes. For now, he's only a late-round flier in the deepest of leagues.
Sep 21 - 3:07 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said Dennis Smith Jr. is "two or three or four times better" in strength and conditioning than this time last year.

"I don’t think there’s anyone faster off the dribble in the NBA," Carlisle added. DSJ finds himself in a great spot for success with the Mavs making changes along with more help. He was 14th percentile on guarded jumpers last year, but he was 94th percentile on unguarded jumpers. If he can play well off the ball next to Luka Doncic, DSJ could be in for a big turnaround in efficiency. He tends to slide in drafts, so give him a long look in the late-mid rounds.
Sep 21 - 3:04 PM

Phoenix has "asked about" Tyus Jones, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

The Suns are in need of an established point guard, as the only PG's currently on the roster are Elie Okobo, De'Anthony Melton, Shaquille Harrison and Isaiah Canaan. A trade to Phoenix would dramatically boost Jones's fantasy stock. Such a deal would also mean more minutes for Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose in Minnesota. Thus, this is certainly a situation to keep an eye on.
