The Orlando Magic have fully guaranteed Dewayne Dedmon's 2015-16 contract.

The Magic had until Saturday to waive Dedmon or fully guarantee his contract. Dedmon averaged 3.7 points and 5.0 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per game last season with the Magic. Dedmon should remain in the rotation in Orlando for the most part, but he will not play much unless Nikola Vucevic goes down with an injury. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Mavericks have officially signed first round pick Justin Anderson.

Anderson could see significant playing time on the wing, especially if Wesley Matthews suffers a setback or Chandler Parsons misses more games. Anderson averaged 12.2 points and shot 45 percent from beyond the arc as a Junior at Virginia last season. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Glen Davis says that he is open to playing in Europe or China if he doesn't get an NBA deal.

Davis had been talking with the Clippers about re-signing with them, but nothing materialized from those discussions. He averaged just 12.2 minutes per game last season but averaged just 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds. With few options open, Big Baby is going to need to head overseas if he wants to, not only play, but get paid to do so. Analysis: Howard Bender

Nuggets will waive Kostas Papanikolaou.

The small forward appeared in 43 games, one start, last season with the Nuggets, averaging 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds a game.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Los Angeles Clippers waived forward Jordan Hamilton.

The 24-year old small forward made 14 appearances with the Clippers (two starts), and averaged 2.7 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 8.7 minutes per game. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Tyler Johnson (jaw) has resumed weight lifting and shooting.

Johnson is three weeks from his jaw surgery. He needs to get back to action to prove that he would be a good back-up option at the point, and really needs the Heat to send Mario Chalmers packing to increase his value for fantasy purposes. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jarrett Jack has the inside track for the starting point guard role, according to coach Lionel Hollins.

Brooklyn released Deron Williams, pushing Jack up the depth chart. He does not provide a great three-point shooting percentage, but also operates in the mid-range area on the court for the most part, not from the outer perimeter, so he does offer decent production.  Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Ricky Rubio (ankle) has been working on improving his jump shot and upper body strength.

Rubio had ankle surgery in April, to deal with an issue that restricted him to just 22 games last season. With some extra upper body strength, look to him to improve on his field goal accuracy, which has never exceeded 38%. A better shot inside would make him more valuable as a starting point guard in fantasy. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Mavericks officially sign free-agent forward Jeremy Evans.

After a career in Utah, Evans signed a two-year deal with the Mavericks. He will be a depth play, at best, and shouldn't be someone fantasy owners are targeting. Analysis: Howard Bender

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
