Brett Squires

Jabari Brown plans to play for Lakers' summer league team, according to league sources.

The 23-year old out of Missouri played only 19 games in the 2014-15 season, averaging 11.9 points per game. He will spend the summer honing his game in hopes to contribute to the Lakers next season.

Kyrie Irving has accepted his invitation to play for the United States olympic team.

As most young players do, Irving will play for the United States in this summer's Olympics in Brazil. Coming off of his first NBA title, he was a solid contributor alongside LeBron James in bringing the Championship to Cleveland. Even though Irving defers to King James offensively, he is still worthy of being taken in the early rounds on draft day 2016-17.

Lakers are planning to make a strong push for free agent C Hassan Whiteside.

After landing the young Duke standout Brandon Ingram at the draft on Thursday, and two starters still under 21 years of age, it's evident that Lakers are looking to the future. One thing they are seriously still lacking is a productive, dominant big man. At just 27 years old, Whiteside is just now coming into his prime. He led the league last year with 3.7 blocks per game and 11.8 rebounds. The Lakers won't be the only team making a big ush for him this free agency, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Knicks have signed undrafted free agent Marshall Plumlee to a guaranteed contract.

Plumlee hit free agency for the first time in his career this off-season, and did not last long on the market. He offers tenacity and energy on the defensive end of the court, and he should have plenty of gas left in the tank after being underused by the Bucks during his time with Milwaukee.

Golden State has interest in signing Al Horford in free agency this offseason.

In addition to the Warriors, it has been reported that the Pistons also have interest in the big man. Golden State is looking for a center to attack the rim, and Horford offers nice versatility both offensively and defensively. Of course, the Warriors are also interested in Kevin Durant, and if he they sign him, the money may not be there to ink Horford as well.

Warriors have interest in signing Joakim Noah during free agency.

The veteran was shut down last January with a shoulder dislocation. He still has the ability to provide rebounding when on the court, as well as providing shot blocks and steals. The scoring is not why he is valuable, and with the Bulls bringing in center Robin Lopez, he will be looking for a new home.

Chandler Parsons will be "all ears" when free agency opens, according to a post on his Instagram account.

All reports suggest Parsons will not be receiving a max deal from the Mavs, so he's ready to go wherever the money takes him at this point. It appears no hometown discount will be awarded to the Mavs and this may very well be the end of his time in Dallas. Due to the salary cap rising, it's hard to imagine Parsons not receiving a max deal somewhere. Harrison Barnes may very well earn a max deal and the two are quite similar in terms of skill sets. Don't expect Parsons back in Dallas.

Manu Ginobili is on the preliminary Argentina roster for the Rio Olympics.

Ginobli's NBA career may be over, he has yet to decide. But it appears as though he will be playing in the Olympics. At age 38, Ginobli doesn't have much in the tank but will look to give it his all in Rio, if he plans on not returning to the NBA. It was an illustrious career for the 6th man and hopefully Manu comes back for one final season.

Harrison Barnes has made the Team U.S.A. roster according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's not too surprising considering the many players refusing to head to Rio. Barnes has been one of the most mediocre players since entering the league. His finals performance was frankly terrible especially towards the end of the series but practicing with Team U.S.A. should help improve his game and his confidence. Despite the numerous players dropping out of the Olympics, it's still quite the accomplishment for Barnes.
