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

Brady Heslip agreed to a deal with Italy's Acqua Vitasnella Cant.

Heslip has played overseas his entire career and will now suit up for Acqua Vitasnella Cant. He is no longer part of the NBA D-League. Analysis: David Kerr

Robbie Hummel agreed to a deal to play in the Italian League with Olimpia Milano.

Hummel played in 45 games for the Timberwolves last season and averaged just 16.5 minutes. He figures to see a lot more playing time while he's in the Italian League with Olimpia Milano.  Analysis: David Kerr

Kings are expected to hire Nancy Lieberman as an assistant coach.

Lieberman is a Basketball Hall of Famer, so she clearly knows her stuff. If hired, she will become the second assistant coach in the NBA. Becky Hammon, assistant with the Spurs, is the first and only current female coach in the NBA. Analysis: David Kerr

Thabo Sefolosha has progressed from a broken right fibula, but it's unclear when he'll begin basketball activities.

Sefolosha's original timetable was six months and that would have him returning during the preseason. Because he will need to get back into game shape and build strength, it seems unlikely he'll be ready for the start of the season. He will once again serve as a reserve for the Hawks. Analysis: David Kerr

Mike Scott was arrested on felony drug charges in Banks County.

Well this is not good news for Scott or the Hawks as he will almost definitely be suspended. Scott was a key player off the bench for the Hawks last season as he showed his versatility as a big man.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Thunder have officially signed F Josh Huestis.

Huestis was the Thunder's first round pick out of Stanford this year and is coming off back to back Pac-12 All-Defensive Team nominations. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Trail Blazers waived center Brendan Haywood before his $10.5 million deal for 2015-16 becomes fully guaranteed.

Haywood was just acquired by the Blazers from the Cavaliers but his stint with the team is short lived as he was more of a contract to trade than a player for their roster. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Knicks have waived guard Ricky Ledo.

Ledo appeared in 17 games for the Knicks last season and averaged just 14.4 minutes. He'll likely be picked up as depth for another team, but can safely be avoided in deep dynasty leagues. Analysis: David Kerr

Josh Richardson signed a three-year, $2.5 million deal with the Heat.

Richardson is a big presence at shooting guard (6'6"). He will start out as a reserve, but if he can provide both offense and a defensive presence, could develop into a useful fantasy player with increased minutes as the season wears on. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Richaun Holmes has agreed to a multi-year rookie deal with the 76ers.

Holmes was a second round pick out of Bowling Green. He recently suffered a fractured elbow and will be out of action for a couple of weeks or so. He is slated to come off the bench even with being on the 76ers. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Update: Rockets have agreed to terms with free agent center Chuck Hayes on a one-year veteran's minimum deal.

Hayes returns to the team where he started his NBA career. He will provide a veteran presence and some defensive skills off the bench. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Kings waived forward Eric Moreland.

Moreland signed with Kings last Kings last offseason and spent most of the season in the D-League. He will likely look to hook on elsewhere but is not an impact player. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andre Miller has reached agreement on a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

This is a great move for the T-Wolves. Miller won't have much of a role on the court, but he's going to be an excellent mentor to their young players. He's long been one of the most cerebral players in the league.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein
