Jahlil Okafor has reportedly been pursued by several Chinese teams.

He still hasn't gotten a deal with an NBA team yet, or much interest at all despite working out for four teams in Las Vegas. Okafor's playing time has diminished each season over his odd career in the league, so going overseas could be best for him. Even if he signs a deal in the NBA, don't expect too much playing time for him.

The Nets have agreed to trade Darrell Arthur to the Suns in exchange for Jared Dudley and a 2021 second-round pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

Dudley has been irrelevant from a fantasy perspective for the last few years. Last season with the Suns, Dudley averaged 3.2 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.3 minutes over 48 games. Woj tweeted out that the Nets will discuss a buyout with Dudley, who is owed $9.5 million next season.

Treveon Graham has agreed to a two-year deal with the Nets.

The terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet, but the first year will be guaranteed. In 63 games with the Hornets last season, Graham averaged 4.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.6 treys in 16.7 minutes. The Nets are loaded with wings, so we wouldn't expect Graham to have a rotation spot right away.

Brooklyn GM Sean Marks believes that Kenneth Faried will be a good fit with the Nets next season.

"His game will transition well to Brooklyn and what Kenny’s wanting to do here," said Marks. "He brings some of the intangibles that you mentioned before, which is just that interior presence, the physicality and so forth." Faried is in the final year of his contract that will pay him $13.7 million this season, and it doesn't sound like Marks intends to waive him. Faried should be in the rotation, but it's unlikely he'll earn enough minutes to make an impact in fantasy hoops.

Jahlil Okafor worked out for four teams in Las Vegas on Wednesday, according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News.

Okafor averaged just 6.3 points and 3.0 rebounds over 28 games with the Nets and Sixers last season. He has not generated much interest on the open market. The Sporting News report indicates that Okafor is currently weighing in at 258 pounds, down from the 275 pounds at which he was last listed. He will likely have to settle for a deal at the veteran's minimum, or he may head overseas.
Jul 17 - 1:53 PM

Jahlil Okafor reportedly has not received interest from any NBA clubs thus far in free agency.

The former No. 3 overall pick has had a tough time adjusting to the modern NBA, and his inability to find meaningful minutes in Brooklyn this past season was a bit of a red flag. He should be able to get an offer at some point, but it won't be for much money and he'll be relegated to a backup role. It's tough to see him landing in a situation where he'd be a factor in fantasy hoops.

Shabazz Napier has agreed to a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

He's coming off his best season and is 27 years old. The Nets didn't waste time to add another point guard after trading Jeremy Lin away, so Napier will be the newest third PG on the depth chart. Although, Caris LeVert is still going to be vying for minutes at the point, so Napier is going to have to earn his rotation spot.

The Nets haven’t had any extension talks with D’Angelo Russell, according to a report in The Athletic.

Russell, who is set to make $7.0 million in 2018-19, will be a restricted free agent next summer if he does not ink an extension this offseason. With the Nets trading Jeremy Lin to Atlanta, Russell should see plenty of playing time next season, as long as he can stay healthy.
Jul 13 - 11:20 AM

Denver has agreed to send Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, a 2019 protected first-round pick and a future second round pick to Nets for Isaiah Whitehead, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

It's a salary dump for the Nuggets to get their cap number down, so they send some draft capital to entice the Nets. Faried likely isn't in the long-term plans for the Nets, so they could look to buy him out. The first-round pick has top-12 protection, so it should be conveyed this season.
Jul 13 - 12:14 AM

The Nets have signed Dzanan Musa to a multi-year contract.

Per team policy, the details of the contract were not released. Musa already got his letter of clearance from his Croatian squad to join the Nets for 2018-19. We didn't get to see him during summer league due to so much play in Europe over the last year, so we will have to see how the Nets use him and 40th pick and fellow European Rodions Kurucs in the upcoming season.
Jul 12 - 6:14 PM

Rodions Kurucs' contract with the Nets is a 4-year deal worth $6.5-7 million.

He signed with the Nets the day after the draft, but the numbers remained uncertain and we've found out that two years are guaranteed. This also solidifies Kurucs buyout from Barcelona even further, as if the contract wasn't enough. It will be interesting to see what the Nets decide to do with him, as we haven't seen him hit the floor yet in summer league.
Jul 12 - 6:07 PM

Jarrett Allen double-doubled on Wednesday with 13 points, 11 rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

Allen is a prime fantasy breakout candidate, with Ed Davis slotting in as his backup and veteran mentor at the center spot. Through two games in Vegas he's averaged 10.5 points, 11.5 boards and 3.0 blocks
Jul 11 - 8:16 PM

Shawn Dawson scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting and had three rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Nets summer league loss to the Timberwolves on Monday.

He's been trying to break into the league for the last few years now, without much success. Dawson has played well so far in this summer league. The Nets were +11 during his 21 minutes on Monday, the best on the team. Brooklyn could be one of his best opportunities to get on the big stage if he continues to impress.
Jul 10 - 1:03 AM

Treveon Graham went in for a workout with the Cavaliers on Monday.

Graham is an unrestricted free agent and he's received "strong interest" from both Cleveland and Minnesota. He's a solid 3-and-D wing, but he's not the type of player that will make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops next season.
Jul 9 - 2:34 PM

Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert will not play again on Saturday.

Maybe the Nets had a change of heart on their rotation guys with them sitting out both games this weekend. Allen and LeVert will look to make a big impact on the Nets all season, especially Allen.
