Anthony Bennett finding it easier to operate on the basketball court after May surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids which improved his sleep apnea and asthma issue.

You can't play if you can't breathe, right? This is definitely a positive thing for Bennett and will certainly make him a more attractive trading chip for the Cavs who have been negotiating a deal with the Timberwolves that includes Bennett for Kevin Love.

Roy Hibbert is training with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar this offseason.

Let's all hope the sky-hook is in play here as that was always a fun one to watch when Kareem was playing. Credit Hibbert for reaching out to one of the greats. Hopefully he learns a ton from him, though you have to imagine that the game has certainly changed since the days of when Kareem played.

Chris Paul told ESPN that sitting out is a real possibility if Donald Sterling remains the owner at start of season.

This is a tough situation to evaluate. On the surface, I appreciate that Paul would stick to his principles, but at the end of the day, it's hard to believe that will be the case. If Sterling is still the owner when the season begins, it will be intriguing to see how this issue is resolved. Hopefully Sterling will just exit as he should and not cause much controversy as he heads out the door.

Wizards PG John Wall has been added to the Team USA roster.

Wall will take the place of Blake Griffin, who stepped away from the team to be able to focus 100 percent of his attention on improving upon his deficiencies. Although Wall has a few things he needs to work on as well, joining Team USA could be very beneficial to as he gets to play with the best up-in-coming players in the NBA.

The Los Angeles Clippers have issued a statement from Blake Griffin that he is pulling out of Team USA duties this summer.

Griffin is one of the most dedicated players in the league, and the fact that the Clippers have yet to make a significant run in the playoffs has really gotten the attention of the team's power forward. With Team USA duties out of the way he can now give 100 percent to his improvement as he matures into a star in the league.

Chicago is offering Doug McDermott, Nikola Mrotic and Taj Gibson in a deal for Kevin Love.

Although the deal the Bulls are planning to offer for the services of Kevin Love is very attractive and full of upside, the fact that they don't have extra draft picks to throw in the mix, like the Cavaliers, keep them a close second behind Cleveland. If the move was to be made, the Bulls would increase their odds significantly to be the Eastern Conference champions next season, but they are far from acquiring this three-time All-Star at this juncture.

Jusuf Nurkic has signed a deal with the Nuggets.

Nurkic was the 16th overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, showing a lot of promise in his career overseas before coming state side. He is going to enter training camp as the team's No. 3 center, behind both Timofey Mozgov and JaVale McGee so unless he impresses early on, there is little chance he makes an impact in his rookie season.

The Mavericks announce the official signing of Jameer Nelson. 

Nelson will take the spot of Jose Calderon in being the floor general for the Mavericks next season and still has plenty left in the tank to be a solid fantasy contributor. However, until we see how he fits in the team's offensive scheme it is hard to tell just how many shots will be left over for him playing along side Dirk Nowitzki.

Sixers have signed former D-League standout guard Pierre Jackson.

It's a nice DL-stash for the Sixers, so to speak. Jackson was outstanding for Idaho in the D-League last year and also looked great during the Las Vegas Summer League. Unfortunately though, he tore his Achilles and will not be on the sidelines for the entire year. The Sixers are hoping that he'll hav ea successful rehab with them and ultimately pan out into a strong offensive player on the NBA level for them.
