Dinwiddie has had a crazy few months following his trade to the Bulls in mid-June. Chicago then waived him early in July but now have an open roster spot and have decided to bring him back on board. Dinwiddie's main role will be to function as depth for the back court with Rajon Rondo, Dwayne Wade, Jimmy Butler, and Jerian Grant already in the rotation.
Lee is a depth signing for the already retooled Spurs but is certainly a nice piece to have coming off the bench. The two-year pact is for $3.2 million which is pretty tame in this free agent market. He won't be a factor in fantasy leagues this year as LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol will get the bulk of the minutes in the front court rotation.
Pierce spent 15 of his 18 year career with the Celtics and was one of the best players in the league during that time. Pierce has evolved into a role player in recent seasons and at the age of 38, the future Hall of Famer could decide to walk away after compiling 26,316 points in his career.
This means Stephens will get an invite to camp with a chance to make the team. However, the Grizzlies have a lot of depth at the forward position so it will be an uphill battle for Stephens to make the roster unless there is an injury. Fantasy owners can avoid this situation altogether.
These were all taken care of for quite some time now, however it is always reassuring to fans to see their players locked up officially. Expect the Celtics to parlay their solid offseason into an improved 2016-17 season.
Both Hornsby and Warney are training camp invitees who will have to be very impressive to earn a spot on the Opening Day Roster. Hornsby is an undrafted rookie guard out of LSU who averaged 13.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season. Warney, a forward, is also an undrafted rookie out of Stoney Brook who averaged 19.8 points and 10.8 rebounds last season.
The future hall of famer will get $50 Million over the next two seasons to play for the team he has played for since he was drafted in 1998. The 38 year old Nowitzki played 31.5 MPG in 75 games last season averaging 18.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. 2016 will be his 19th season in the NBA and he still hasn’t shown a ton of signs of slowing down yet.
George is listed as day-to-day after suffering a calf strain and was removed from the game more for precaution due to the lead Team USA had over China. George scored six points in under 10 minutes prior to leaving the game.
For now, the NBA career of former 2006 No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani seems to be over. After a decade in the NBA and a big downturn over the last couple of years, Bargnani has agreed to a two-year deal with Baskonia in the second best league in the world Liga ACB.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are probably happy that at least someone seems to be committed to them for the long haul. Newly acquired shooting guard Victor Oladipo is apparent;y seeking a max contract extension from the team. Oladipo who was the former number two overall pick is a solid two guard who averaged 16 PPG last season with 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
