Thereâ€™s no other way to frame this one. Itâ€™s literally a tough break with news that shooting guard Ben McLemore, the Grizzliesâ€™ top free-agent acquisition this summer, underwent successful surgery Tuesday after being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during an offseason training session late last week in California.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent center Marshall Plumlee has agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources tell ESPN.
When the campâ€™s guest speaker, former Knicks star and current assistant general manager Allan Houston, was asked if thatâ€™s the jersey Anthony will be wearing for the upcoming season, the two-time All-Star shooting guard wouldnâ€™t take the open shot. â€śThatâ€™s not for me to speak on,â€ť Houston said with a laugh. â€śThatâ€™s for the boss.â€ť
Houston did have kind words for his new bosses, president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry. â€śSteve and Scott have been intentional in their language about what we want to be,â€ť said Houston, who played nine of his 12 seasons with the Knicks. â€śIt starts with identifying what you want to be and then going out and doing it.â€ť
