Forward/center Christian Wood has agreed to a training camp deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Wood had a big Summer League performance for the Bucks, averaging 20.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game while shooting 55.4% from the field in five games, earning a spot on the all-summer-league first team. "I think without a doubt he’s an NBA player," Bucks assistant and summer-league coach Taylor Jenkins told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Bucks have an open roster spot and it would appear that Wood has a chance to win it. The UNLV product went undrafted in 2015 and has bounced around the league for a few years, so he'll simply be hoping to make the opening-night roster for the Bucks.

The Nets have guaranteed Spender Dinwiddie's $1.65 million salary for the 2018-19 season.

This was one of the easiest decisions ever for Brooklyn after Dinwiddie put himself in the running for the Most Improved award last season, and he'll be eligible for an extension after December 8. He'll most likely play out his current contract in order to hit free agency next summer, but it could be tough for him to replicate his success from his 2017-18 campaign with a healthy D'Angelo Russell in the fold next season.

The Jazz have waived David Stockton.

He's already agreed to a deal overseas for next season, so this move was just a formality.

Jevon Carter underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb on Tuesday.

He's expected to make a full recovery, and while the Grizzlies haven't yet offered up an official timetable for his return, this sort of injury typically involves a 6-8 week timetable. Carter won't be a factor in the rotation while the Grizzlies are at full strength.

Derrick Walton Jr. has signed a contract with the Bulls.

As per usual, the terms of the deal were not disclosed in Chicago's presser, but this is likely just a camp invite. Walton Jr. will have to beat out Ryan Arcidiacono for the third-string point guard position at training camp, but even if he makes the team, he won't hold any fantasy value this season.

Nigel Hayes has reached an agreement with Turkish EuroCup team Galatasaray for next season.

Dwight Howard says he has lost 23 pounds this summer and wants to play until he is 40.

Howard's trainer says that D12 weighed in at 285 pounds with 12.5 percent body fat when they first began working together in 2017. Now, Howard is down to 265 pounds with 3.3 percent body fat. His trainers are aiming to re-shape his game as well. By slimming down, Howard wants to be able to get up and down the floor quicker in transition. He's also shooting more 3-pointers in practice. "It’s either evolve, adapt or get left behind," said Howard.

Scottsdale police confirmed they are investigating an incident involving James Harden at an Arizona nightclub.

According to a report by TMZ, "an unidentified woman said she was at The Mint nightclub in Scottsdale when a member of Harden's entourage got into a fight. The woman said she was recording the scuffle when Harden walked up and grabbed her wrist and phone before throwing her phone onto a roof so she couldn't sell the video footage." Scottsdale police spokesman Officer Kevin Watts said the incident occurred at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday. He added that it was "far too early in the investigation" to confirm what Harden's involvement in the incident was.

Tarik Black has reportedly reached an agreement with Maccabi Tel Aviv for next season.

Black appeared in 51 games (two starts) for the Rockets last season, averaging 3.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 10.5 minutes, while shooting 59.1 percent from the floor.

Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said he is unsure if he will start Carmelo Anthony, or bring him off the bench.

Melo signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal with Houston on Monday and ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Rockets were expected to bring Anthony off the bench. However, D’Antoni said nothing is set in stone as of yet. "All I know is that we’ll try different combos — preseason, early season, and the good thing is that with analytics and with gut feelings and coaches and players, we’ll figure out what is the best way to play," said D'Antoni.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is highly unlikely to play for Greece in the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

Antetokounmpo has taken great pride in playing for the Greek national team, but in order to play in these contests, he would have to leave the Bucks training camp. Thus, it is very safe to assume it won't happen.

Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.

It's reportedly just a training camp deal, so he's not a lock by any means to make the 15-man roster. He's not on the fantasy radar and averaged just 10.6 minutes in 11 appearances with the Bucks last season.
Aug 13 - 10:59 PM

Briante Weber has agreed to a training camp deal with the Heat.

Weber is familiar with Erik Spoelstra and his system, so he might be able to edge out Malik Newman for the third-string point guard position at training camp. He won't have any fantasy value, though.

Michael Porter Jr. (back surgery) has been limited to light shooting.

MPJ told reporters that he was finally feeling pain-free at the Rookies' photo shoot, but he's still not been cleared for full-contact, and coming off two back surgeries the Nuggets will assuredly be bringing him along slowly. He'll likely be limited at camp, and there are no guarantees he'll be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season. He'll be a risky guy to target in re-draft settings.

Landry Shamet (ankle) has been cleared for light basketball activities.

Shamet sprained his ankle at Summer League, but he's pain-free at this point and should be cleared for full-contact work for training camp. He won't be an impact player in fantasy hoops, though.
