If he stops taking them, he should be able to play. It's unlikely that he'll be able to play a contact sport while on them, though, as this can potentially be a huge issue. It's very possible Bosh takes this issue to the NBA player's union if he and the Heat can't come to some sort of an agreement. Bosh still has plenty left in the tank and it'd be a shame to see him forced into an early retirement due to health problems. Stay tuned.
Varejao proved to be a quality defender, and excellent flopper, for Golden State last season and he will likely occupy a similar role this season. He isn't much of an offensive force, but he is a quality hustle player who can get those 50-50 balls. Once again, the guy is a great flopper.
Calathes wasn't in the NBA last season, but given his career numbers, that really isn't a surprise. For his career, he's averaging 4.6 points, 2.7 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game. Even if the Kings ink him to a deal, he won't be relevant in any fantasy format.
Well, all of this sure isn't going to help Rice's case of being picked up by a team before the season. These are pretty serious charges and the fact that he's been in trouble before isn't helping anything either. Remember that he was shot in the leg outside of an Atlanta nightclub last October.
Well, that was a short lived career considering he played just one year in The Association, but he must have wanted to end on top, as he captured an NBA title with the Cavs in his one season. Sure he wasn't an integral player on the team by any stretch of the imagination, but he can always make more money overseas, or he can just ride off into the sunset at the still very young age of 31.
While Payne has been hampered by this injured fifth metatarsal in his foot since mid-March, he surprisingly played very well through it and even managed to be the high scorer during the Summer League just this past month. Considering how he managed to play through it for all of this time, he will almost certainly be ready to go for the beginning of the season come late-October.
The beauty of winning a title, as Lue was largely mediocre at best for most of his first foray into the head coaching world. He did do an excellent job in the Finals, which is where it counts the most, but his acumen will not truly be realized until LeBron leaves or calls it a career (See: Erik Spoelstra).
Waiters one-year deal is worth $2.9M as he accepted the Heat offer. Waiters should immediately become the favorite to win the starting shooting-guard position. His competition is Wayne Ellington, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson. Between those three plus Goran Dragic, the Heat now have a five-man guard rotation. Waiters averaged less than 10 points per game while shooting south of 40-percent. This move could be exactly what the former lottery pick could use.
After signing Festus Ezeli it appeared as though the Trailblazers were done making moves this offseason but they were able to sign guard C.J. McCollum to a four-year extension which was for $106 million which is the league maximum. The former 10th overall pick back in 2013, McCollum had a breakout year in 2015 where he averaged 20.8 points and 4.3 assists in 34.8 minutes per game. He's proven to be a great player but will have a lot of pressure on himself to perform this upcoming season due to how much money the Trailblazers have invested in him.
The 1,000 point scorer, three-year starter at Indiana University, Williams recently signed a summer league deal with the Phoenix Suns. He impressed thoroughly with the Suns, averaging 12.3 points and 4.3 rebounds over six games. He has now signed a partially guaranteed contract with the Grizzlies, where his athleticism and rebounding ability should be able to help Memphis -- and at the worst he will help improve the rest of the roster in practice.
