The Mavs agreed to terms with Ray Spalding on a four-year rookie deal.

The No. 56 pick in the draft played five games in Vegas, averaging 8.0 points, 5.2 boards and 0.4 dimes over his 17.0 minutes per game. He'll be logging most of his minutes in the G League.

Monte Morris has agreed to a three-year, $4.8 million deal with the Nuggets, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

He was on a two-way deal last year, but his play in summer league helped him earn this deal with two years guaranteed. Morris was in the running to be the backup point guard, but now he has almost no chance with Isaiah Thomas in town.

Justin Anderson was traded to the Hawks on Thursday.

He's now been traded in deals involving Nerlens Noel and Carmelo Anthony. Anderson did see some spot minutes in the playoffs, but he still hasn't been able to string games together since his rookie summer league back in 2015. The 76ers now look like they will have Furkan Korkmaz in their rotation.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot was traded to the Thunder.

The 76ers are stacked at shooting guard and small forward with their Zhaire Smith pick and adding Wilson Chandler, so TLC had almost no chance to get into the rotation this season. He likely won't be in the rotation with the Thunder either as he tries to find an offensive identity.

Mike Muscala will be headed to the 76ers in the Carmelo Anthony trade.

The Hawks clear out another big man to now pave the way for John Collins to be the man with 30-plus minutes -- an easy breakout candidate pick. As for Muscala, he adds some extra shooting as a combo big, and his addition helps offset the loss of Nemanja Bjelica. He likely will be used against bigger fours, or in the second half as an option behind Joel Embiid.

Dennis Schroder and Mike Muscala will be traded to the Thunder in the Carmelo Anthony deal.

The Hawks have been trying to get Schroder off their books for basically all of 2018, and they were finally able to do so in the Melo salary dump. Schroder still has three years and about $46.5 million left on his deal, and he won't be an unrestricted free agent until 2021. Obviously, his fantasy value takes a gigantic hit as Russell Westbrook's backup, but he'll play some SG minutes at times. Jeremy Lin and Trae Young will handle the PG time for the Hawks now.

Oklahoma City has agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first-round pick to Atlanta for Dennis Schroder and Mike Muscala, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Melo is going to be waived and pick his team of choice after he clears waivers. The Rockets are the heavy favorite to land Melo, which would make him a starting forward on a playoff contender. Anthony's career has taken a nosedive after a brutal finish to his 2017-18 season.

Hawks waive G Jaylen Morris.

He played six games last year with the Hawks, and did get a contract back on Mar. 21. Morris could hang around for a camp invite or may head overseas. He didn't have an impactful run in summer league.

The Nuggets announced that Michael Porter Jr. had surgery on his lumbar spine in Dallas.

This announcement comes one day after the report he had surgery last week, and the official release is only 35 words -- that's low for a team release on an injury. The Nuggets said there is no timetable for a return, but Porter Jr. is reportedly hoping to play this season. At this point, he basically has no re-draft value this season.

Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks plan to finalize a one-year, $5 million contract, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

There has never been any doubt that Dirk would be back with Dallas next season, the only question was the value of the contract. Nowitzki has also stated that he is not sure if this will be his final NBA campaign. Dirk will be entering his age-40 season but was surprisingly durable in 2017-18, starting 77 of the Mavs first 78 games.

Portland will retain Wade Baldwin and guarantee his contract for next season.

Baldwin played well for the Blazers summer league entry, averaging 13.3 points, 7.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals over their first six contests. However, with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum on the roster, and Seth Curry signed this offseason as well, Baldwin is not expected to receive consistent minutes and can be ignored in standard fantasy formats.
Jul 19 - 1:02 PM

Yogi Ferrell has agreed to a two-year, $5.3 million contract with the Mavs.

The second season of Ferrell's deal includes a trigger date on July 7. According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Yogi was promised the backup shooting guard position to start next season. However, Dallas drafted Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson back in June, so Ferrell may see fewer minutes in 2018-19. Last season, he appeared in all 82 games and averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 27.8 minutes, while shooting 42.6% from the floor.
Jul 19 - 12:49 PM

The Rockets are working toward signing Isaiah Hartenstein and hope to reach an agreement by the end of the week, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Hartenstein played well for the Rockets summer league entry this month, averaging 10.3 points and 8.0 rebounds in 21.9 minutes over four contests. He played for Houston's G-League affiliate last season and averaged 9.5 points (on 57.1 percent shooting) and 6.6 rebounds in 18.7 minutes per game. He is not on the fantasy radar.
Jul 19 - 12:14 PM

Dwyane Wade said he is still undecided on his future and is unsure if he will play next season.

It was announced on Wednesday that Wade had signed a lifetime deal with China-based sporting-apparel manufacturer Li Ning. When asked if he planned to return to the Heat next season, Wade responded: "When I get back from China, I’ll focus on that. Right now, I'm focused on the game after basketball. Whatever happens in basketball, it happens... The basketball will take care of itself. I'll sit down and figure that out once I get back from this tour at some point."
