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.

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 Hawks and Thunder are reportedly discussing a trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to Atlanta in exchange for Dennis Schroder and Mike Muscala.

The Hawks are desperate to rid themselves of Schroder and the Thunder find themselves in a similar predicament with Melo, so this would be a deal that would make sense for both sides. The Hawks would waive Anthony upon his arrival, thus allowing him to sign with a team of his choosing (likely the Rockets), and Schroder's value would take a hit as he'd be relegated to being Russell Westbrook's backup. Muscala would remain a non-factor in OKC.

John Jenkins stayed hot on Sunday with a game-high 25 points on 9-of-12 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, adding three 3-pointers, two assists and one rebound in just 21 minutes.

Jenkins came in shooting 67.0% from the field through four games in Vegas, although the standard 'Summer League' disclaimer applies -- he shot 44.8% in five NBA seasons and has far more experience than most of the guys he's playing against. Jenkins spent the 2017-18 season in Spain but could earn an NBA deal as a perimeter shooter, even if it's not with Portland. "I know I’m capable of playing in the NBA," Jenkins said recently. "I just need the opportunity."

The Rockets have emerged as strong frontrunners to acquire Carmelo Anthony once he is free from Oklahoma City, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Melo is also considering Miami. Surprisingly, it appears the Lakers were never a legitimate option. OKC desperately needs to dump Anthony's $27.9 million salary, so it's only a matter of time before they part ways. The only question is whether it's via trade or waive/stretch provision. The Rockets lost Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute, so they could use some depth at forward. However, Melo would be a significant downgrade defensively.

The Hawks plan to keep Jeremy Lin, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

The Nets traded Lin, along with a second-round pick, to Atlanta on Thursday evening in order to clear out cap space. The Hawks already have point guards Dennis Schroder and Trae Young on the roster, so there was some thought that the Hawks might waive Lin. However, it seems the more likely scenario is Atlanta trying to trade Schroder, who made some critical comments about the organization earlier this offseason.

The Nets traded Jeremy Lin to the Hawks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Wow, a few late-night moves here with Jeremy Lin and Thomas finding new teams. Lin enters a tough position battle with Dennis Schroder and Trae Young to start the season, but Lin's arrival makes it even more likely that Schroder is dealt at some point. He's getting over his knee injury and should be close to 100 percent for camp.
Jul 13 - 12:11 AM

Trae Young will not play on Thursday night.

He's just getting the night off after his most impressive game on Wednesday. Young had a brutal run in Utah, but he's shown his passing prowess during his time in Vegas.
Jul 12 - 9:54 PM

Tyler Dorsey (hip) returned with a bang on Wednesday, scoring 24 points with eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.

Dorsey missed a few games with tightness in his left hip, but he didn't lack for explosiveness in his return tonight. He already has a fully guaranteed deal with the Hawks next season, but faces an uphill fight for minutes with Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince, Kevin Huerter and DeAndre Bembry on the roster.
Jul 11 - 10:38 PM

Trae Young erupted down the stretch of Wednesday's Summer League victory, posting 23 points (7-of-14 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), eight assists, two steals and five turnovers in 26 minutes of action.

In the final five minutes of the game, Young scored seven points, dished out four impressive assists, and stole the ball once. His inefficiency as a shooter in Vegas has raised plenty of red flags for fantasy purposes, at least during Young's rookie campaign, but this was a nice reminder of why Atlanta valued him so highly.
Jul 11 - 10:22 PM

John Collins won't play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

The Hawks are simply resting Collins and it's safe to assume his play in Vegas is over. He's led all players at Summer League with 24.0 points per game, adding 8.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks, and could be a stealthy late-round fantasy pick on draft day.
Jul 11 - 7:46 PM

Trae Young hit seven 3-pointers en route to 24 points, five assists, one rebound, two steals and four turnovers in Tuesday's Summer League win over Chicago.

He got off to a quick start with 11 first quarter points, cooled off for a bit and then delivered a clutch 3-point shot late in the game to seal the win. It wasn't all great though, as Young only hit 7-of-19 shots and is now shooting a combined 23-of-85 (27%) from the field in Summer League. Today was somewhat encouraging, but Young has a long way to go.
Jul 10 - 8:06 PM

Trae Young (right quad) is a go for Tuesday's Summer League game against the Bulls.

Young was forced out of the second half of Sunday's game with the minor quad issue, but the fact that he'll be making it out there for a meaningless game suggests it'll be a non-issue moving forward. Young's passing has looked nice at Summer League, but he's really struggled to get separation on offense, which isn't a great sign regarding his fantasy outlook.
Jul 10 - 4:19 PM

Tyler Dorsey (hip) will not play in Tuesday's Summer League game against the Bulls.

This will be Dorsey's second straight game on the sidelines, and he won't be taking the floor for these meaningless games until he's clearly 100% healthy. The Hawks would need to ship out Kent Bazemore for Dorsey to gain any relevancy in most fantasy leagues.
