Norris Cole has signed a deal with Italian Serie A team Scandone Avellino.

This will be his second straight campaign overseas after averaging 12.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists with Maccabi Tel Aviv last season. Cole will be 30 in October and it doesn't seem likely that we'll see him in the NBA again.

In addition to adding more bulk, Christian Wood has spent the offseason working on his 3-point shot.

"It’s improving, I’m starting to knock it down and mix it up well," Wood said. "I feel very comfortable from 3-point range. I work on it every day." A seven-footer with a seven-foot-four wingspan, Wood is an intriguing prospect because he can run the floor, shoot from the perimeter and protect the rim. He was very impressive in Vegas and earned a spot on the all-summer-league first team. If he carries this same momentum into camp, he could push for the backup job behind Brook Lopez.

E'Twaun Moore is preparing for a bigger role with Rajon Rondo out of the picture.

"I can be another guy that can help create shots [for teammates] ... help create my own shots, also," Moore said. "Shoot more threes, maybe, off the bounce ... shoot more threes, it's a big part of the game." Moore played a lot of SF last season with Solomon Hill injured for most of the campaign, and while he hopes to play more guard, his versatility widens his path to minutes. Moore averaged 12.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.6 triples in 31.5 minutes in 2017-18 and will continue to provide low-end fantasy value unless the Pelicans trade for a wing -- they have been linked to Kent Bazemore.

Marcus Georges-Hunt is working out with the Denver Nuggets this week.

The guard will be looking to find a home after being released by the Timberwolves, where last season he averaged 1.4 points in 5.4 minutes across 42 appearances. The defensive specialist will simply be looking for a camp invite.

Corey Brewer is trying to remain optimistic while in free agency.

Brewer is still on the market despite a strong close to the season in Oklahoma City. "[I'm] just trying to figure it out, "Brewer said. "Hopefully, sign somewhere and just keep playing basketball. That's what it's all about." The bad news is that with 15 guaranteed contracts for the coming season, there is little chance that the Thunder will re-sign Brewer. In 18 regular season games with the Thunder, he averaged 10.1 points and 3.4 rebounds, while shooting 34.3 percent from the 3-point range.

According to Brian Lewis of the New York Post, the Nets "are convinced D’Angelo Russell wants to be great."

Russell has been the first one in the gym this summer and reportedly looks more explosive. "He’s a talented guy," coach Kenny Atkinson said. "He’s got great court vision, incredible hand-eye coordination, really understands the game." His durability has been a concern, particularly his knees, but there are reasons to be optimistic if he can stay on the floor. Before his knee surgery last season, Russell was averaging 20.9 points, 5.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds. With a contract extension in his sights, Russell could be poised for his best season yet.

The Hornets have waived C Mangok Mathiang.

Mathiang's fate may have been sealed in Las Vegas, as he averaged a lackluster 2.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game. With his two-way contract voided, he'll be looking for another training camp invite.

According to official Nuggets reporter Chris Dempsey, Trey Lyles could have a breakout season.

Dempsey has covered the team for a long time, and he continues to talk up Lyles. "Here’s a bold prediction: Lyles will be the Nuggets’ fourth-leading scorer this season, behind [Nikola] Jokić, Jamal Murray and Gary Harris." Lyles had showed up in great shape as a spectator in Vegas, and now he'll really have to carry the scoring for the bench forwards with Will Barton in the first unit now.
