2017 NBA Draft: Recap

Damyean Dotson Headshot

Dotson will sign a three-year contract with the Knicks, Michael Scotto of the Associated Press reports.

The deal reportedly includes guarantees for the first two years, so it seems highly likely that Dotson will be on the regular-season roster following training camp. Dotson, widely considered a three-and-D prospect, had a standout performance during the Orlando Summer League with averages of 12.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 5.0 three-pointers per contest. He'll provide emergency depth as another shooter off the bench on the wing, although Dotson could earn a more prominent role in the rotation as the season progresses.

Jimmer Fredette Headshot

Fredette re-signed with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association on a one-year, $1.8 million contract, international beat writer David Pick reports.

Fredette last played in the NBA during the 2015-16 season, when he split time with the Pelicans and Knicks. However, he'll be spending a second straight season with the Sharks in China, where he's coming off a spectacular year that included a record-breaking 73-point showing back in April. If he continues to have so much success internationally, there's always a chance another NBA team will give him a shot at a contract.

Nicolas Brussino Headshot

Brussino was claimed off waivers by the Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Brussino, who was let go by the Mavericks on July 20, has been picked up by the Hawks. He showed some promise last season in limited minutes, but Dallas seemingly felt he wasn't worth the money he would have been guaranteed had they held onto him. The Hawks, however, are deep in rebuilding mode and jumped on the opportunity to add a wing player to the mix. Brussino averaged 2.8 points and 1.7 boards across 9.6 minutes per game last season. His potential workload for the upcoming season is pretty up in the air, though it seems possible he could garner a similar role for the Hawks.

Jack Cooley Headshot

Cooley has agreed to a two-way contract with the Kings, Chris Reichert of The Step Back reports.

Cooley, after going undrafted back in 2013, has bounced around the NBA and the D-League since. Last season, however, he played for the German club MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. He'll look to make a name for himself in the G-League this season.
Yesterday 12:39 pm (EST)
Justin Hamilton Headshot

Hamilton has agreed to join the Beijing Shougang Ducks, per his official Twitter account.

After joining the Raptors via trade in mid-July as a filler that allowed the team to unload DeMarre Carrol to the Nets, Hamilton was subsequently waived. Now, he has opted to take his talents to China, signing with the Beijing Shougang Ducks. He averaged 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds across 18.4 minutes per game with the Nets last year.
Yesterday 12:26 pm (EST)
John Wall Headshot

Wall agreed to a four-year, $170M extension with the Wizards on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

The Wizards offered Wall an extension at the beginning of free agency, but he was expected to take some time and allow the team to assemble their roster before making a final decision. Ultimately, he opted to to accept the team's max-extension offer, which will kick in following the remaining two years on his deal. The 26-year-old is entering his prime and coming off the best season of his career, in which he recorded career highs in points, assists, and steals. He figures to be primed for another big season.
21 Jul 10:07 pm (EST)
Pau Gasol Headshot

Gasol agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the Spurs, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

While the monetary details of the contract haven't been announced at the moment, it seems safe to assume that the three-year deal guarantees more money than the $16.2 million player option that Gasol declined for the upcoming season. While Gasol's best years are certainly behind him, he still posted a solid 12.4 points, 7.8 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.1 blocks across 25.4 minutes per game, making him a fair option in a variety of fantasy formats.
21 Jul 4:09 pm (EST)
Tony Parker Headshot

Parker (quad) is progressing in his rehabilitation and can now run on his injured left leg, Cody McCrary of MySanAntonio.com reports.

Though Parker, who ruptured his left quad during Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals, is making strides with his rehab, he told Argentinian reporters that "it's still going to be another four or five months". With that in mind, it's still realistic at this point to hold onto the January return date that he's been targeting since late May.
21 Jul 3:38 pm (EST)
Dillon Brooks Headshot

Brooks signed a three-year deal with two years fully guaranteed Friday with the Grizzlies, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

Brooks was drafted in the mid-second round by the Rockets in this year's draft before being traded to the Grizzlies the same night. Brooks signing a guaranteed contract with Memphis before training camp even begins is surely a sign that the team is happy with what they have seen out of the former Oregon star. With Memphis having solid depth on the wing, however, Brooks will likely find himself on the outside of the team's rotation to start the season.
21 Jul 1:00 pm (EST)
Luis Montero Headshot

Montero signed a two-way contract Friday with the Pistons, HoopsHype.com reports.

Montero was most recently waived by the Heat in 2016 after spending training camp with them, and he'll now have another shot at the league in Detroit. Montero played in summer league for both the Mavericks and Kings this year and will likely spend majority of the 2017-18 season in the G League upon singing this deal.
