K.J. McDaniels signed a one-year tender with the 76ers.

McDaniels had been a rookie hold-out this whole time and the contract he signed was a non-guaranteed one-year deal. While that might be a bit of a risk, the former second-round pick is banking on his abilities to shine through in camp and earn him a spot on the Sixers roster this season; likely with a fair amount of playing time coming his way as well. If that's the case, then it's a pretty slick move as he would then become a restricted free agent following this season. That would allow him to earn significantly more in his second year than a second-round pick normally would.

Jimmy Butler made that clear after Tuesday's first practice as the Bulls' front office and Butler's agent, Happy Walters, continue to try to hammer out an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline.

Butler has made it known that he wants to remain in Chicago so it is very likely that he will get an extension signed within the next month. If the two sides are unable to reach an agreement, Butler would become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2014-15 season.

K.J. McDaniels wasn't in the gym for the first day of training camp at Richard Stockton College because “his contract hasn't been executed,” according to a team spokesman.

McDaniels seems to be unhappy with the contract that the 76ers are currently offering, but it is expected that the two sides will come to an agreement in the very near future.

Pierre Jackson was waived by the Sixers on Tuesday.

Jackson is currently injured with a ruptured Achilles tendon, but will still make $400,000 in the process. He is sidelined for six to 12 months and will look to come back strong next year, most likely with a new team.

Carl Landry (knee) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

Landry is continuing to work his way back from a torn meniscus so it isn't surprising to see him held out of practice. It is worth noting that Landry was on the court for five straight practices, so Tuesday's off day was just a breather for the 31-year-old veteran.

Joel Embiid's status for this season is uncertain and the 76ers may hold him out all year. 

Embiid has injury issues and with the 76ers unlikely to make waves this season, it seems logical to hold him out for much of the season. They took a similar approach with their top pick in 2013, Nerlens Noel, who was recovering from an ACL injury. Now, Noel is making his rookie debut this year instead. It will be interesting to see how Philadelphia handles this situation.

Rookie power forward Noah Vonleh said he hopes to be fully cleared medically in the next two to three weeks, following surgery to repair a sports hernia.

Vonleh was hoping to compete for a starting job this season, but that is basically off the table at this point. His timetable to return is 6-8 weeks and considering that his surgery took place at the beginning of September, he is going to be missing a lot of training camp, not to mention gaining his strength back. He is slotted for a bench role to start the season.

Deron Williams, who is coming off of surgeries on both his ankles, sat out the practice Tuesday.

Deron is one the leagues premier point guards when healthy but was limited to just 64 games last year and posted his lowest point and assist per game totals since his rookie season.
