DeMarcus Cousins appears to be making solid progress in his recovery from the Achilles injury.

Cousins tweeted out a video of him going through a recent workout, where he can be seen jogging, getting up shots and throwing down a few dunks. He's still nowhere near 100%, but this is the first real glimpse we've had of him going through any on-court work since the surgery, and it's clear he's making progress. Still, it seems unlikely that Boogie will be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season, and he'll likely see a lot of random rest days on this star-studded Warriors team.

The Nets have signed G Jordan McLaughlin to a training camp contract.

Brooklyn already has three point guards on the roster on guaranteed deals, so it's extremely unlikely McLaughlin will make the regular-season roster.

As expected, Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play for Greece in the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

It was reported earlier this month that Antetokounmpo was highly unlikely to participate in the WC qualifiers, but it is now official, as Giannis is not on the 14-man roster submitted by the Greek Basketball Federation.

Marco Belinelli will not play for the Italian national team in the World Cup Qualifiers next month.

Italy will play Poland and Hungry in September, but Belinelli will stay in the states to prepare for the Spurs training camp. Marco Belinelli has agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with San Antonio this summer.

In the NBA's annual survey, this year's rookie class picked Deandre Ayton and Collin Sexton as the favorites to take home the 2018-19 Rookie of the Year award.

Both Ayton and Sexton got 18 percent of the vote. Luka Doncic and Kevin Knox finished tied for third, with nine percent. Last year, the rookies picked Dennis Smith Jr. as the favorite. Sexton will likely start the season coming off the bench behind George Hill. Ayton is expected to be the Suns starting center on opening night.

Jarnell Stokes has signed a training camp deal with the Heat.

Stokes played for Miami in 2015-16 and was named MVP of the G-League the following season. He spent last season in China. The Heat currently have 18 players on their roster, which means it is unlikely Stokes is part of the final 15-man squad on opening night.

Kay Felder has signed a one-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Raptors, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Felder appeared in 16 games for the Bulls and Pistons last season, averaging 3.6 points while shooting just 30.0 percent from the floor. He will compete for the 15th and final spot on the Raptors roster. He can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Kenneth Faried was arrested in New York on Sunday morning and charged with being in possession of marijuana.

Southampton Town Police said Faried was arrested on Montauk Highway at 1:30 a.m. and charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Per the report, he was the rear passenger of a vehicle that was stopped during a sobriety checkpoint and was found to be in possession of more than two ounces of marijuana. The Nets released a statement to TMZ Sports, saying, "We are aware of the situation involving Kenneth Faried and are in the process of gathering more information at this time." Faried is not on the fantasy radar in standard leagues, as he appeared in just 32 games last season.

Trae Young said the Dennis Schroder trade helped him realize how committed the Hawks are to his development.

"Obviously when they move the point guard they’ve had for a while, their starting point guard, it definitely opened my eyes," Young said. "It shows how much they are committed to me. Bringing Jeremy [Lin] in as well is a good fit for us. I know there is a lot on my plate. I’m looking forward to it." The shooting percentages and turnovers might not be pretty for Young during his rookie season, but he'll see nothing but opportunity in Atlanta and should be a steady source of dimes and triples.

Jeremy Evans is close to a deal with Darussafaka in the G-League.

Evans is a seven-year NBA veteran, but only averaged more than 10 minutes in one season and that was back in 2013.

According to his brother, Manu Ginobili could announce his decision regarding retirement as soon as this week.

"The 20th hasn’t even reported if he’s still playing," Sepo Ginobili said. "I imagine there will be news next week." Ginobili is on the books for $2.5M next season, but he hasn't given any indication as to whether or not he'll return for his 17th season. Now 41, the veteran is well off the fantasy radar.

According to his agent, Brandon Jennings will play in Russia next season.

He's just 28 years old, but Jennings hasn't been the same since his Achilles injury in 2015. In 14 appearances with the Bucks, Jennings averaged 5.2 points and 3.1 assists on 37.5% shooting.

Victor Oladipo's trainer said they've taken his ball-handling workouts "to another level" this offseason.

"In the fourth quarter, he’s like the point guard," said Al Watson, one of Oladipo's trainers. "[We] wanted to focus on a lot of combination moves, working on traps. It’s no secret now. They’re going to be double-teaming him." Oladipo is taking a 'kitchen sink' approach to improving all aspects of his game, and there's nothing preventing him from a repeat of last season's breakout performance which yielded top-15 fantasy value.

Alexey Shved reportedly declined overtures from the Pelicans, Wolves, Grizzlies and Suns this offseason, opting to remain in Europe.

The translated report suggests that Shved received an offer in the $4 million range, and that he's still open to returning to the NBA next summer at age 30. Shved was never a reliable fantasy option and that won't change if he returns to the U.S. in the coming years.
