The Clippers are "emerging as a front-runner" to sign Kawhi Leonard in free agency next summer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Leonard hasn't even had an official practice with the Raptors and he's already rumored to be headed elsewhere, but a lot can happen before next July. The Clippers are reportedly a favored landing spot for Butler, who may be hoping to join Kawhi or another max free agent -- the Clippers can accommodate two max salaries. For now, fantasy owners should focus on Kawhi's health and willingness to compete for the Raptors in 2018-19.

The Celtics currently have no plans to rest Kyrie Irving (left knee) or Gordon Hayward (left leg surgery) in back-to-back situations this season.

"I’m not sure I anticipate [resting in back-to-backs] with either of those guys from everything I’ve been told thus far," Stevens said on Wednesday. "I think they’ve really made great strides, they’ve been working out, playing in small groups and playing 5-on-5 for over a few weeks now." It was recently reported that Kyrie won't have a minute-limit to begin the season, either, giving prospective owners another reason for optimism.

Gordon Hayward (left leg surgery) is expected to be "full-go" for the Celtics' first practice of training camp.

Brad Stevens said there's no current plan to rest Hayward in back-to-back sets, and added to the optimism about his recent workouts. "From my eye and anybody else that may have watched him work out, he looks like he’s looked before," Stevens said on Wednesday. Hayward hasn't shied away from contact either, "jumping and landing even against another guy," and he's said that regaining explosiveness is the final step in his recovery. He's expected to be ready to go for the start of camp.

Jimmy Butler is "most determined" to end up with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Woj reported earlier today that the Clippers, Knicks, and Nets are among Butler's preferred destinations. Shams Charania of The Athletic also mentioned the Heat as a potential landing spot. Butler is eyeing a team that can accommodate him and another star player. He would like to be traded now so that he can lock in a five-year max contract worth $190 million next summer, instead of a four-year, $140 million contract if he were to leave Minnesota in free agency.

Daniel Theis (knee) is back to playing some 5-on-5 action.

He was getting close earlier this month, but now the Celtics are expected to have the full roster ready for camp. Theis is going to be a weapon in coach Brad Stevens' frontcourt arsenal, but he'll be used situationally.

Reggie Jackson (ankle) said he is day-to-day.

"I’ve been nursing injuries, and they’re nagging, but it’s part of the career, part of life," Jackson said on Wednesday. He didn't provide many details, but said it's still a rehab process. Jackson was able to return from his ankle sprain for 12 games last season and he may not have been 100 percent, but it sounds like he may be limited in the preseason. Ish Smith makes sense as a late-round flier for now, and maybe Luke Kennard can get some PG minutes.

Mo Bamba said he changed his diet from his college days.

This isn't necessarily big news, but it's a positive for young players to change their diet to help keep them in shape. For now, Bamba is expected to come off the bench, but the team dealing Bismack Biyombo away suggests they want him on the court to start his NBA career. Given his upside for blocks and his early growth as a shooter, Bamba is worth a look in the later rounds.

Trey Burke said he believes he will start at point guard this season.

"That’s just my mindset. I know coach [David Fizdale] said he’s going to training camp rolling the ball out to allow us to compete for the starting spot — which I believe is fair," Burke said. Burke should be considered as the starter and he'll likely play next to Frank Ntilikina at times. Burke lit it up after the break last year at 15.9 points per game, but he's still only worth a late-round flier.
