Paul Pierce Headshot

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said he has plans in place for Paul Pierce to one day retire with Celtics.

While no announcement has been made of the veteran's intentions, it only makes sense the retire a Celtic. The career 20.0 ppg scorer was one of the greats of his generation, and brought a title to Boston. If he does lace them up next year, it will be in a reserve role, and he will have little impact on fantasy teams.

Kevin Durant Headshot

Kevin Durant said he never promised Russell Westbrook he would stay with the Thunder.

Whether or not this report is true, Durant and the Warriors figure to be the villains of the NBA going into 2016-'17. It remains to be seen if adding one of the NBA's best players to a team that won 73 games last season will make them better. From a fantasy standpoint, the addition would figure to hurt the value of Curry, Durant, Green and Thompson in a negative way, since there is only one basketball on the court at a time. The real winners of this move in fantasy figure to be Westbrook and Victor Oladipo as Durant left them as the top two options in OKC.

Spencer Dinwiddie Headshot

Spencer Dinwiddie has signed with the Chicago Bulls.

Dinwiddie has had a crazy few months following his trade to the Bulls in mid-June. Chicago then waived him early in July but now have an open roster spot and have decided to bring him back on board. Dinwiddie's main role will be to function as depth for the back court with Rajon Rondo, Dwayne Wade, Jimmy Butler, and Jerian Grant already in the rotation.

David Lee Headshot

David Lee has signed a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Lee is a depth signing for the already retooled Spurs but is certainly a nice piece to have coming off the bench. The two-year pact is for $3.2 million which is pretty tame in this free agent market. He won't be a factor in fantasy leagues this year as LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol will get the bulk of the minutes in the front court rotation.

Paul Pierce Headshot

Doc Rivers said in an interview on Wednesday, that if Paul Pierce does retire that he will waive him so that he can retire as a Celtic.

Pierce spent 15 of his 18 year career with the Celtics and was one of the best players in the league during that time. Pierce has evolved into a role player in recent seasons and at the age of 38, the future Hall of Famer could decide to walk away after compiling 26,316 points in his career.

D.J. Stephens Headshot

Grizzlies have signed D.J. Stephens to a partially-guaranteed two-year contract.

This means Stephens will get an invite to camp with a chance to make the team. However, the Grizzlies have a lot of depth at the forward position so it will be an uphill battle for Stephens to make the roster unless there is an injury. Fantasy owners can avoid this situation altogether.

Jaylen Brown Headshot

Celtics officially signed Gerald Green, Jaylen Brown and Ben Benti while re-signing Tyler Zeller on Wednesday.

These were all taken care of for quite some time now, however it is always reassuring to fans to see their players locked up officially. Expect the Celtics to parlay their solid offseason into an improved 2016-17 season.

Jameel  Warney Headshot

Mavericks have signed Jameel Warney and Keith Hornsby.

Both Hornsby and Warney are training camp invitees who will have to be very impressive to earn a spot on the Opening Day Roster. Hornsby is an undrafted rookie guard out of LSU who averaged 13.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season. Warney, a forward, is also an undrafted rookie out of Stoney Brook who averaged 19.8 points and 10.8 rebounds last season.

Dirk Nowitzki Headshot

Mavericks make Dirk Nowitzki's signing official on Wednesday.

The future hall of famer will get $50 Million over the next two seasons to play for the team he has played for since he was drafted in 1998. The 38 year old Nowitzki played 31.5 MPG in 75 games last season averaging 18.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. 2016 will be his 19th season in the NBA and he still hasn’t shown a ton of signs of slowing down yet.

Paul George Headshot

Paul George left Tuesday night's USA exhibition game vs. China with a leg injury.

George is listed as day-to-day after suffering a calf strain and was removed from the game more for precaution due to the lead Team USA had over China. George scored six points in under 10 minutes prior to leaving the game.
