Nets' GM Sean Marks expects to sign Theo Pinson to a two-way deal.

"I think we do. It’s staying flexible throughout the year; we’ll see what happens. We do have a guy in mind," said Marks when asked about who will fill the second two-way slot on the roster. "Pinson is gonna be our two-way guy. It hasn’t been out there yet; it probably shouldn’t be." Pinson went undrafted out of North Carolina, but he was always on Brooklyn's radar. Assuming he signs the two-way deal, he'll spend most of the year in the G-League.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (left adductor strain) will be ready for training camp according to Nets GM Sean Marks.

Marks didn't go into detail, but it's nice to have an update because we've heard very little since he picked up the injury in early August. RHJ is the favorite to start as Brooklyn's small-ball four this season and will be a nice source of points, out-of-position assists, rebounds and defensive stats.

Despite a "fantastic offseason," GM Sean Marks said it's unlikely that the Nets will agree to an extension with D'Angelo Russell before the Oct. 15 deadline.

"If I was to say right now, I’d probably say we’ll let it ride out. But things change in this business pretty quickly, so we’ll adjust as we go," Marks said. This isn't a big surprise with the Nets trying to keep their flexibility for free agency in 2019. Russell is healthy, motivated and the coaching staff and his teammates have been talking him up all summer, but as talented as he is, inefficiency and durability concerns makes him one of the most polarizing fantasy assets.

Dzanan Musa's right ankle injury isn't believed to be serious.

"Dzanan is currently getting an MRI," Nets GM Sean Marks said. "It’s to be determined. It’s not as serious as was posted out there, thankfully. All is well there." Marks went on to say that Musa would be cleared in time for training camp, and while the Nets have a lot of depth on the wings, Musa's multiple-position flexibility could help him carve out a role -- he even played some point guard for Bosnia this summer.

Nets rookie Dzanan Musa hurt his right ankle during a FIBA game this weekend, but wrote that he'd "be back for ... the beginning of the training camp."

The severity of the injury will be assessed by Brooklyn on Monday, and initially it seems that reports by Bosnian media of an Achilles injury were incorrect. Musa's own tweet refutes that report, given his projected timetable, but we'll know more within a few days.

Alan Williams has agreed to a two-way deal with the Nets.

Big Sauce heads to BK after the Suns let him go back in July. Williams' mom is the Chief of Police of Phoenix and was a hometown kid, so it'll be an adjustment for him to head across the country. He'll have a tough time getting minutes on the Nets behind certainly Jarrett Allen and Ed Davis, and even Kenneth Faried should project as the team's No. 3 center. Despite his brief time as a fantasy producer in 2016-17, he's not on the fantasy radar right now.
Sep 14 - 2:10 PM

Dzanan Musa scored 15 points and with nine assists Thursday night in Finland during a loss on his Bosnia national team.

He played some point guard and almost helped his team overcome a 21-point deficit. Musa's size at 6'9" combined with his multiple-position flexibility will make him a very intriguing prospect on the Nets this season. However, the 29th pick in the draft still has some work to do before he locks up fantasy value in most leagues.

Dzanan Musa has added 15 pounds since the draft.

"As far as my physical predisposition is concerned, no one has to worry, I have put on seven kilograms in a 25-day period so I do not have to have any disadvantages by the start of the season, and I will try to give my team immediate input," Musa said. We've heard the rookie say he wants to play multiple positions, so the added weight should help. He's still a long-shot to play big minutes in Brooklyn's crowded wing rotation.

The Suns are interested in point guards Spencer Dinwiddie, Cory Joseph and Patrick Beverley.

The Suns are in the market for a veteran point guard after parting ways with Brandon Knight. They were linked to some big names like Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker and Terry Rozier last week, but Dinwiddie, Joseph and Beverley are much more realistic targets. Dinwiddie's $1.65M salary is a bargain and acquiring him would allow the Suns to keep their financial flexibility for 2019. Whoever lands in Phoenix will see a huge bump in value, but there is nothing imminent at the moment.
Sep 9 - 10:03 AM

Rodions Kurucs said he expects to spend time in the G-League next season.

The Nets selected Kurucs with the 40th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and signed him to a four-year deal worth between $6.5 and 7 million this summer. However, he is not expected to be part of the Nets rotation any time soon and could benefit by spending time in the G-League and adding weight to his 190-pound frame. He can be ignored in all standard fantasy formats.
Sep 8 - 11:04 AM

Unrestricted free agent Alan Williams worked out for the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Williams was waived by Phoenix in July but could earn a roster spot in the NBA, especially if he proves his surgically-repaired right knee is fully healed. He has strong per-minute potential but would need a series of lucky breaks to help fantasy owners in 2018-19.
Sep 5 - 8:13 PM

Kenneth Faried pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from his August arrest.

Faried was arrested in New York this past August and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but he's contesting those charges. He could face a suspension from the league if found guilty.
Sep 5 - 1:42 PM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he sees D'Angelo Russell having "more of a commitment to his body" this summer.

"I think he’s maturing and learning," Atkinson said. "It’s a two-way street from our performance staff to our coaches, and our veterans have done a good job of bringing him in the fold where, not that we have all the answers, but I do feel like it’s the right time and right place where he is in his career." Russell appears to be in the best shape of his life, and it's been almost all positive since a major letdown in 2017-18. If he can stay healthy and improve, maybe DAR could have a breakout season.
Aug 31 - 4:56 PM

Jarrett Allen said that he has been working on his long-range jumper, shooting between 50 and 100 3-pointers a day.

As if there weren't enough reasons to be optimistic about a breakout season for Allen, now we have this to look forward to. "I’ve been working in the gym a lot," he said. "You’ve got to work on shooting nowadays. [I’ve been working on it] literally every day. Shooting three’s, mid-range, everything. I would say I’m shooting at least 50 [threes] a day. Almost one hundred." Allen attempted only 15 treys as a rookie last season, knocking down five. If he can add a relatively consistent 3-point shot to his arsenal, his fantasy value will spike.
Aug 31 - 9:20 AM

James Webb III signed with Telekom Baskets Bonn in Germany.

It's a one-year deal for the 25-year-old forward. Webb III impressed in the G-League last season and earned a shot with the Nets, but only averaged 12.0 minutes in 10 appearances.
