Tyrus Thomas has signed with German basketball club Eisbaeren Bremer.

Auf Wiedersehen, Tyrus Thomas. He will try and lengthen his career over in Europe with a slight hope of maybe returning in a year or two if he can get an NBA deal. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Jazz announced that Dante Exum had successful surgery on his ACL on Thursday.

Exum suffered the ACL tear in a non-contact situation much like what happened to Derrick Rose. The surgery went well, but it looks like he will miss the entire season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Ricky Rubio is said to be confident that the Timberwolves are not looking to trade him.

The T'Wolves are a team on the rise, the question is whether Rubio fits into their future plans. Given the fact that Minnesota is in full rebuilding mode and looking to get younger, it wouldn't be surprising if they move the assist machine at some point this season. As of now though, Rubio is the starting point guard for the Timberwolves headed into the 2015-16 season. Analysis: David Kerr

The Kings have reached agreement on a one-year contract to re-sign Eric Moreland.

Moreland was waived by Sacramento in late July, but re-signed with the team on Thursday. He will be fighting for a roster spot, so he's certainly no guarantee to make the team. The Kings have plenty of front court depth, so Moreland is going to have to impress in training camp. Analysis: David Kerr

Quincy Pondexter said that his rehabilitation work after undergoing surgery on his left knee in May is moving along slowly, but he remains hopeful.

He averaged a little over six points a game in a hair under 24 minutes in the 2014-15 regular season. His absence is of little consequence to fantasy owners. Analysis: Jerry Colvin

Eric Moreland has reached agreement on a one-year contract to re-sign with the Sacramento Kings.

He signed for an undisclosed amount but the deal apparently included incentives. He clearly needs them as he provided little impact for fantasy owners last season. Analysis: Jerry Colvin

Free agent guard Landry Fields undergoes hip surgery and will miss five months.

During the 2014-15 season he averaged a little over eight minutes per game with a .488 shooting percentage. This changes little for fantasy owners. Analysis: Jerry Colvin

Isiaiah Thomas said he is motivated for the upcoming season and wants to accomplish more as a team.

Boston has a chance to be very successful this season and build upon last year. They went 40-42 in the regular season, good enough to earn the No. 7 seed in the Eastern conference playoffs. Expect for them to improve on that this season. Analysis: Colby Conway

Clipper head coach Doc Rivers said he plans to experiment with newly signed Paul Pierce at the "stretch" four position this season.

It will be interesting to see how this works for the Clippers, because even as a stretch four, Pierce at 6-feet-7-inches is still going to be undersized. If he does get noteworthy minutes there, expect his rebounding numbers to go up this season, as well as his fantasy value.  Analysis: Colby Conway

Dwight Howard was detained in a Houston airport for having a gun in his carry-on.

D12 won't face any major trouble here, so the Rockets organization shouldn't worry about his availability due to this situation this season. Barring any injuries, Howard will be out there posting double-doubles on a regular basis for Houston this season. Analysis: Colby Conway

Grizzlies rookie Jarell Martin broke his left foot in a workout Wednesday, per team. Martin will have surgery on September 3.

Martin wasn't expected to be a big part of Memphis' plans this year, but this injury could stunt his development. He is out indefinitely and will now be playing catch up once he returns. It seems likely that Martin will be part of the Grizzles' D-League team once he's fully healthy. Analysis: David Kerr

Cavaliers have officially re-signed J.R. Smith.

Smith signed a two-year deal with a no trade clause. He's an important role player on a Championship caliber club when he's right, but he's wrong he can single-handedly lose games for the club. He's a great source of threes, but his shooting percentage is a killer.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Chandler Parsons has added 1-dribble pull-ups to shooting routine. Has also been doing heavy lifting with his surgically repaired leg.

Parsons had knee surgery in May, but is expected to be back by opening night. He's a high upside pick in Dallas with not many offensive weapons left on the roster. Parsons is the kind of player with a high ceiling you should target in the middle rounds of your draft.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Marcus Smart has been cleared for all basketball activities.

Smart suffered a painful finger injury in Summer League, but is ready to go full bore. He's projected to be the starting PG for the Celtics, but Isaiah Thomas will cannibalize his stats.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Glen Davis is having surgery to repair torn ligaments, a cyst and bone spurs in his left ankle Wednesday.

Davis will miss some time recovering, but we haven't heard anything that suggests he won't be ready by the time the season begins. The Clippers and Mavs have shown interest in the free agent, but he remains unsigned.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein
