Free agent forward Chuck Hayes will not be signing with the Rockets as expected.

Word is that with Houston signing Ty Lawson, the salary cap numbers could not be worked out to accommodate Hayes. The 32-year old front court player wants to play at least one more season, but the Rockets also offered him a chance to join their coaching staff, so he has that as a fallback position. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Thunder agreed to 1-year non-guaranteed deal with free agent forward Talib Zanna.

The team is not taking a big chance here, as it is just a one year deal that is not guaranteed. He spent last season with the OKC Blue in the D-league, and averaged 13.3 points, 11 rebounds and shot 60% from the field in 50 games. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

J.J. O'Brien has signed with the Utah Jazz.

The 6-foot-7 forward played one year at the University of Utah before transferring to San Diego State. He finished his senior year with an average of 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. The Jazz are expecting him to serve as depth on the wing. Analysis: Howard Bender

Toure' Murry will return on a non-guaranteed deal for training camp with the Wizards.

The young guard is a hard worker, who would be a deep bench asset to any NBA team. I'm sure he will make the Wizards, regardless of this non-guaranteed moniker.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jrue Holiday should be ready for start of season, but will likely be on a minutes restriction.

Holiday was limited to just 40 games last season due to injury and has now missed significant time over the past two seasons. When on the court Holiday was an effective player, averaging 14.8 points, 6.9 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.3 three-pointers per game. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kyrie Irving (knee) is likely to miss the season opener.

Reports surfaced on Thursday that Irving could be out until January, but the Cavaliers haven't confirmed anything at this time. It's a tough blow for Irving and the Cavs, but the important thing is that the star point guard is healthy once the playoffs roll around. Irving's stock is certainly going to take a dive in fantasy drafts this fall. Analysis: David Kerr

Derrick Rose has been sued by a women who claims he and two of his friends drugged and gang raped her.

There hasn't been an abundance of details released yet, but this is definitely something to monitor moving forward. The woman, Rose's ex-girlfriend, has waited for two years to file the suit and she wants unspecified damages. There hasn't been any word from Rose or anyone in his circle, but once again, this is something to monitor moving forward. Analysis: Colby Conway

Clippers remain interested in re-signing Glen Davis.

Davis averaged 12.2 minutes a game off the bench for the Clippers in 2014, scoring 4.0 points and pulling down 2.3 rebounds. His role on the Clippers will continue to be limited and such there would be zero fantasy value in him. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Miami Heat are still open to trading Chris Andersen and Mario Chalmers, but have been unable to find a trade partner for either.

The Heat are looking to lower their payroll and tax bill entering the upcoming season and both players seem to be candidates. Andersen is due $5 million this year so he would be the first out the door if they could but both are likely to report to camp and at least open the season in Miami. Analysis: Howard Bender

Cory Jefferson will join Suns training camp to compete for open roster spot.

The former Baylor forward has a better chance of sticking on the roster than Henry Sims, but the Suns already have too many SF type players. Jefferson is likely going to have to look elsewhere for a roster spot.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Henry Sims will join Suns training camp to compete for open roster spot.

Sims got tons of opportunity last year for the Sixers, but failed to impress enough for them to offer him a qualifying offer. At only 248 pounds he's too small to play the center position. The Suns will surely not keep him on their final roster.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Lakers officially sign Michael Frazier to two-year deal.

Frazier played collegiately at the University of Florida, but went undrafted. He'll be the last man off the bench for the Lakers and will have no fantasy value whatsoever. Analysis: Brian Rothstein

The NBA has fined the Los Angeles Clippers $250,000 for their pitch to then-free-agent DeAndre Jordan.

The fine stems from the first meeting the Clippers had with the then-free-agent on July 2nd at which they indicated there would be third party endorsements as part of the deal. We all know what happened next but it's that endorsement offer that got them in trouble because unless the offer is written in the contract or permitted by the CBA it violates the league's anti-circumvention rules that could allow teams to reduce the cap hit of players contracts by offering third party deals.  Analysis: Matt Selz

Jeff Adrien is finalizing a one-year deal with the Pelicans.

Adrien had a minimal impact for the Timberwolves last season, averaging just 3.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. He will look to make a good impression in New Orleans, but he isn't going to have a fantasy relevant role. Analysis: Colby Conway
