Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) will not have any limitations entering training camp.

Beverley will go to camp in Los Angeles, but there's a chance he could be making a move to Phoenix at some point, with rumors heating up about the Suns' interest in him. He's coming off a very serious knee injury but has looked great at recent workouts, and he could be fun to own if he does wind up in Phoenix. Beverley is someone to consider towards the final few rounds on draft day.

The Clippers hired Sports Illustrated writer Lee Jenkins on Monday, naming him the team’s Executive Director of Research and Identity.

Widely considered one of the best long-form writers in the business, Jenkins will make a move into the front office in Los Angeles. Per the team's press release, "Jenkins will use his extensive reporting background and unique interviewing style to contribute to the franchise’s amateur and professional scouting infrastructure, as well as help to enhance the Clipper experience."

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Suns are targeting Patrick Beverley of the Clippers.

Shams added that Beverley is on the top of their list because they believe he'll be an ideal fit next to Devin Booker. For now, Los Angeles' asking price is a major roadblock, as they are looking for a first-round pick and the Suns are only willing to part with second rounders. Beverley would be very appealing in Phoenix, so he looks like a nice flier at his late-round ADP.

The Suns have discussed Patrick Beverley, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Cory Joseph as possible trade targets, according to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports.

All three of those above guards are on fairly team-friendly deals, and those teams have invested in other point guards, as well. Beverley makes the most sense of the bunch because his contract could become non-guaranteed later this year, so he could start the year in the first unit before guys like Elie Okobo and/or De'Anthony Melton are ready.

The Clippers have matched the Pelicans' two-year offer sheet for G Tyrone Wallace.

Previous reports suggested L.A. would let their restricted FA head to New Orleans, but instead they'll keep him in an overstuffed backcourt. As things stand, Wallace appears to be buried on a roster that includes Patrick Beverley, Avery Bradley, Lou Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Milos Teodosic, Jawun Evans, Jerome Robinson and Sindarius Thornwell. The Clippers may have some moves up their sleeve but it's still hard to envision Wallace with fantasy value this season.

Doc Rivers is expecting a "breakout year" for Tobias Harris this season.

We are too, as Harris is in a contract year and put in averages of 19.3 points, 6.0 boards, 3.1 dimes, 2.2 triples, 1.2 steals and just 1.7 turnovers across 32 games with the Clippers last season. He'll open the year in Los Angeles as their starting four-man and one of the primary options on offense, so he'll have a great shot of achieving top-20 status in 9-cat leagues. He's one of the better, early-round value picks out there.

Tyrone Wallace has agreed to an offer sheet with the Pelicans according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

ESPN's Ian Begley adds that the offer is a two-year deal at the minimum. The Clippers have the ability to match the offer, but may not because of their depth at both guard spots. A 6'5" combo guard, Wallace would be an intriguing fit on the Pelicans because of his defense and could be a nuisance for the fantasy value of Elfrid Payton and E'Twaun Moore. In 30 appearances last season, Wallace averaged 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 0.9 steals.

Boban Marjanovic will not play for the Serbian National team at the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

The timing of this year's World Cup Qualifiers is awkward with it intersecting with training camp, so a lot of the big name international players won't be suiting up for their national teams. As for fantasy hoops, Marjanovic remains behind Marcin Gortat and Montrezl Harrell on the depth chart, so he won't make much of an impact while the team is at full strength.

Milos Teodosic will not suit up for Team Serbia at the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

Teodosic is 31 years old and had a tough time staying healthy last season, so it wouldn't make much sense for him to risk a setback on the cusp of the regular season. The Clippers have a ton of depth at the point guard position this season, so it'll be tough for Teodosic to make much of an impact in fantasy hoops.

Boban Marjanovic hasn't decided if he will suit up for Team Serbia at the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

Serbia has games against Greece and Estonia in mid-September, but Marjanovic hasn't officially gotten clearance from the Clippers' management for international play. The head coach for Team Serbia will meet with Lawrence Frank on Tuesday, with an official decision expected to be made by Wednesday.

Milos Teodosic has not yet committed to suiting of for the Serbian National Team at the World Cup Qualifiers in September.

The timing of this year's qualifiers is awkward with it intersecting with training camp, so the Clippers' brass may be reluctant to clear the 31-year-old for international play. He'll fly to Los Angeles on Monday for a checkup with the medical staff, practice on Tuesday and then an official decision will be made.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander said he's been focusing on his post game.

"Yeah, I just feel like I can use it to my advantage because I’m a taller point guard and can shoot over the defense," he said. He added that he's been working out a lot, but said he still eats too much junk food. Gilgeous-Alexander also said he thinks he can guard 1-3, and he believes his size will be a big asset as a point guard. There's a bit of a logjam in the short term, but SGA could emerge as one of the best players from this class.

Danilo Gallinari will not suit up for the Italian national team this summer.

The Rooster broke his hand playing for Team Italy last summer, so after consulting with the Clippers' medical staff and his agent, they determined it would be best to not risk anything going into his 10th NBA season. Gallinari does offer decent upside, but his inability to stay on the court has been a major drawback to his fantasy appeal over the years. Due to his well-documented injury history, we wouldn't advise targeting the 30-year-old on draft day.

Patrick Beverley (right knee surgery) said he's feeling great and is in the best shape of his life.

"I’m really ready," said Beverley when asked about his surgically-repaired knee. "I’m feeling really, really strong, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in my life and we’re going to see soon." Beverley was cleared for full basketball activities in June, so he should be ready to hit the ground running when training camp begins in September. If he can manage to stay healthy this season, he'll be in a position to flirt with top-80 value.

Danilo Gallinari wants to play for Team Italy this summer.

The Italian National Team has two games in September which the 30-year-old forward would like to participate in, but the Clippers may be reluctant to clear him considering he fractured his hand with the Italian club last summer. Gallinari is loaded with talent, but he's also a walking injury, as he's essentially only had two healthy seasons over his nine-year career. We wouldn't recommend looking his way until the later rounds on draft day.
