Even if Dedmon doesn’t make the team now, he’ll play for the Warriors in Santa Cruz. He is one of three players who have already agreed to be affiliate players should they not make the team. League rules allow teams to designate up to three non-roster players from training camp. That prevents other teams from poaching them away. Dedmon, Seth Curry and Joe Alexander have already agreed to the designation should they not make the roster. Contra Costa Times

Pallacanestro Cantù is on the market looking for a forward to finalize the roster for the coming season. The Italian club opened negotiations with former NBA forward Joe Alexander.

Sixty seven games in two seasons was not exactly what Alexander had in mind when he walked up to the dais to shake NBA commissioner David Stern’s hand and put on his new Milwaukee Bucks cap right around this time four summers ago. Today, Alexander’s journey has taken him from the NBA D-League in Texas to overseas in Russia. Where he ends up landing this year is anyone’s guess. “Right now, I am going to continue to work out during the off-season and wait until the contract offers start coming in and start fielding them and try to figure out where I will end up,” said Alexander, in Morgantown last weekend working Bob Huggins’ Fantasy Basketball Camp. Alexander isn’t sure if he will sign with an NBA team and play in this year’s summer league or if he will sign with a foreign team and resume his professional career overseas. “There is a lot of uncertainty right now and I haven’t made those decisions, so I’m not sure,” he admitted. “I’d like to play summer league if I’m able to, but who knows? I’m still a few weeks away from that decision though.” West Virginia Mountaineers

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the more proactive NBA teams when it comes to taking advantage of its D-League counterpart in the Tulsa 66ers, but they'll take a look at a host of other free agents Tuesday and Wednesday during a free agent mini-camp according to sources with knowledge of the workout. The Thunder have invited guards Blake Ahearn, Matt Janning, Jerome Dyson and Marquez Haynes; wings Bobby Simmons, James Singleton, DeMarre Carroll and Joe Alexander; and bigs Ryan Reid, Latavious Williams, Arinze Onuaku, Marquis Gilstrap, Tony Gaffney, Rob Kurz and Stephane Lasme. Those names are fluid, however, meaning a few more could be added to the list by the time workouts are actually underway. Ridiculous Upside

The NBA Development League is built on developing players on the verge of NBA contracts, though three recent additions might be just an injury away from contributing to an NBA roster. The Texas Legends acquired Joe Alexander, the Maine Red Claws acquired DeShawn Sims (right) and the Rio Grande Valley Vipers added Stanley Robinson Tuesday, according to a league source. All three additions are near-perfect fits as far as giving the players an excellent chance at an NBA call-up as well as helping their new teams. FanHouse.com

"We are thrilled to add Joe Alexander to our team," Lieberman said in an e-mail. "His experience and athleticism will provide us with increased depth in the frontcourt. Antonio Daniels has proven his ability to get everyone involved -- and I am confident that we will get Joe up to speed very quickly. As with all of our players, I hope that Joe uses this opportunity as a springboard back to the NBA." FanHouse.com
