The Hawks, Nets and Jazz have all reportedly expressed interest in Italian forward Nicolo Melli.

The 27-year-old sharpshooter has been playing professionally in Europe since 2010, and both the Hawks and Nets have reportedly contacted him this summer. He's shot over 43% from beyond the arc in each of his past three seasons, although he has said he wants to win in Europe before coming to the NBA.

The Timberwolves, Jazz, Spurs, Rockets, Pelicans and Knicks have all expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Trevor Booker.

Booker is a quality backup big man who could help any one of these teams with some frontcourt depth, but he'll be a non-factor in fantasy hoops next season.

Kevin Huerter, who is expected to be a first-round pick in the 2018 draft, reportedly underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right hand on Wednesday.

Huerter is expected to make a full recovery in two months' time, and while he will be forced to miss Summer League, this isn't expected to dramatically affect his draft stock. He was reportedly dealing with the hand injury at the combine, but played through it, only shutting down his workouts once he received a promise from a team selecting in the 20s. The Jazz have expressed a lot of interest in Huerter to this point, so maybe they were the ones that promised to grab him.

Anfernee Simons is scheduled to work out for the Jazz on Thursday.

Simons is one of the youngest players in the 2018 draft, and while he is a bit underdeveloped from a physical standpoint, he's loaded with upside, has a nice shooting stroke and is ridiculously athletic. The Jazz have the No. 21 pick in the upcoming draft, which would be a bit high for Simmons, but if they like what they see on Thursday they may consider moving down to nab him.
Jun 6 - 11:37 AM

Grayson Allen is scheduled to work out for the Jazz on Monday.

Allen could be a second-round option for Utah, but he's not a guy we'd expect to produce fantasy value during his rookie season. Joining him in Monday's workout will be Aaron Holiday, Ray Spalding, Jalen Brunson, Malik Pope and Khyri Thomas.
Jun 3 - 3:26 PM

Shake Milton went through a workout with the Jazz on Monday.

Milton went through a 3-on-3 scrimmage with other draft prospects Omari Spellman, Elijah Stewart, Theo Pinson, Angel Delgado and Thomas Wilder. Milton is a scoring point guard out of SMU who figures to be in Utah's range when they come on the board with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft, but we've got a ways to go before draft day.

The Jazz remain interested in acquiring Nikola Mirotic, according to sources of Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah is reportedly hesitant to include a first-round pick for Mirotic, which is Chicago's asking price, but they remain interested and believe Mirotic could help their team. If a Utah-Chicago deal goes through for Mirotic, Derrick Favors would likely be involved, which wouldn't be great news for Bobby Portis. Stay tuned.

The Pistons have reportedly "ramped up their efforts" to move Stanley Johnson.

Johnson netted a career-high 26 points on Tuesday to go with 10 rebounds, four dimes, two steals, one triple and a block, so that should help his trade value. Detroit has reportedly been eying Rodney Hood, but it's not clear if Utah is interested in a Hood-Johnson swap. In terms of fantasy hoops, a move to Utah wouldn't be great for Johnson's rest-of-season outlook.
Jan 31 - 11:16 AM

The Jazz have reportedly expressed interest in Willy Hernangomez.

"I don't know what's going to happen," Hernangomez said. "The trade deadline is coming. Like I've said a couple times, I'm 23, I'm hungry. I want to play. Whatever happens, I'm ready for it. I feel good to know that I'm not even playing and a lot of teams are interested in me. That makes you happy, you can see that you did something good and somebody thinks you can be good in this league." Hernangomez hasn't been able to work his way into the rotation in New York, but that wouldn't necessarily change in Utah.
Jan 24 - 12:49 PM

Nikola Mirotic returned to action on Saturday with 16 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block, making 6-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Mirotic missed one game due to illness but looked fine vs. Detroit tonight. He's eligible to be traded on Monday and teams like the Pistons and Jazz have been mentioned as possible suitors -- for now, the Bulls are reportedly holding out for a first-round draft pick. Heat coach Fred Hoiberg referred to playing Mirotic and Lauri Markkanen together as "a fun lineup," so as long as he's with Chicago his role appears safe.
Jan 13 - 11:44 PM

The Pistons have reportedly expressed interest in Nikola Mirotic.

The Pistons and Jazz have now officially been named as teams that are looking to acquire the 26-year-old power forward, but the Bulls can't officially trade him until January 15. They're reportedly seeking a first-round selection in any Mirotic trade, but it is worth noting that a clause was put into Mirotic's contract this summer that gives him veto power in any trade. However, with Mirotic being the one that requested the trade in the first place, that veto thing might not end up being an issue.
