Toney Douglas was waived by the Pelicans on Friday.

Douglas was brought in early last season to provide depth in the backcourt with Jrue Holiday out injured. Word is that he might be headed overseas as his prospects of picking up with another team aren't as enticing. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jerian Grant signed his rookie deal with the Knicks.

Grant had a fantastic summer league and through five games, he averaged 11.8 points, 4.8 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers over 28 minutes per game. He'll walk into camp competing with Jose Calderon and Langston Galloway for point guard minutes and is also expected to back-up Aaron Afflalo at shooting guard as well.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Jordan Clarkson will have his contract for the upcoming season guaranteed.

The decision to gaurantee the contract was not a hard one for the Lakers, as they had no choice but to do so unless the team wanted to waive Clarkson. He'll make $845,059 next season. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Kyle Korver (ankle) has yet to begin basketball activities.

Korver underwent ankle surgery in June, but has not been doing much rehab yet as recovery has been slow. That being said, Korver is confident that he'll be ready by Training Camp. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Sasha Vujacic agreed to a one-year deal with the Knicks on Friday.

Vujacic was last in the NBA in 2014, playing two games (10 total minutes), with the Clippers. He'll try to earn a spot on the Knicks final roster this season. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Bernard James is headed back to China to play with the Shanghai Sharks.

The 30-year old played 16 games (two starts) at center for Dallas last season, averaging 9.9 minutes, 2.8 points, and 2.4 rebounds per game. He'll go to China to play for the Shanghai Sharks, a team that he was with in 2014. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Nuggets have announced the signing of first-round pick Emmanuel Mudiay.

About time. In any event, Mudiay figures to make an immediate impact on the floor due to his athleticism and playmaking ability. His shot has a long way to come, but so do the Nuggets as a roster. He should be a solid bench player in most formats next season.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Trail Blazers guaranteed Allen Crabbe’s contract for next season.

It's good to know that the Blazers haven't given up on the once highly touted prospect, as he could turn into something quality, provided he remains healthy. Expect him to struggle to find minutes early on this season however.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Gerald Wallace has been traded to the 76ers.

It is unclear what the 76ers plans are for Wallace, but for now he seems to be in line for starting minutes, based on the current talent in Philadelphia. They can't amnesty Wallace, as they used that privilege in 2012 for Elton Brand, but maybe they could stretch his contract like they considered for Javale McGee last season. In any event, Wallace is past his fantasy prime. Analysis: Dom Murtha

The Sixers have traded Jason Thompson to Golden State in return for Gerald Wallace and draft considerations.

Thompson should prove to be another depth weapon for Golden State, as his best minutes might be served as a center on the second unit. He is a solid scorer and above average rebounder and rim protector, so expect him to be a nice piece in the Warriors machine.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Timberwolves and Lorenzo Brown agree to a reworked deal. He will be there for training camp.

After a strong showing in the Summer League in which he averaged 14.2 points 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists over 27 minutes per game, the Timberwolves seemed more than happy to work something out with him and keep him in Minnesota. He'll back up Ricky Rubio, but given Rubio's injury history, Brown should see plenty of minutes come his way this season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Knicks have waived Ricky Ledo.

Waiving Ledo will open up a roster spot for the Knicks to sign 2014 second-round pick Thanasis Antetokounmpo. Ledo averaged 7.4 ppg in 19.4 mpg in 12 games with the Knicks last season. He will likely bounce between the NBA and the D-League again next season, unless he elects to play overseas. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Donnie Walsh says that Pacers first round pick Myles Turner reminds him of Dwight Howard.

Turner was one of the top recruits in the nation out of high school, but he never broke out in his one season at Texas under Rick Barnes. Turner is an excellent shot-blocker like Dwight Howard, but he should develop a far more versatile offensive game.  Analysis: Steve Pimental

Hamed Haddadi agreed to a deal with China's Sichuan Blue Whales.

Haddadi last played in the NBA during the 2012-13 season and has been in China ever since. He's unlikely to make it back to the NBA before he retires from professional basketball. Analysis: David Kerr

Mavericks announced they have signed center Salah Mejri.

Mejri played with Real Madrid last season and won the Spanish League title, but only managed to average 8.6 minutes. He is 29 years old and has limited upside, so it's unlikely that we'll see him in a Mavericks uniform anytime soon. Analysis: David Kerr
