Q: Is it important to you now that you've been through it to talk to other guys if they go down with that same injury? Nerlens Noel: Oh yeah, yeah. Definitely, definitely. With all the support and love, certain guys, especially Rajon Rondo -- he was definitely the biggest helper through this whole process, he actually gave me his phone number and told me I could hit him up whenever about it. Being from Boston, watching him growing up, and he went through it and he came back as strong as possible, actually before me, so it gave me a lot of confidence, having his good faith. CBSSports.com

Ronald Roberts is apparently headed to 76ers training camp this fall. A French Web site reported Roberts, an undrafted forward from St. Joseph's, has signed a three-year contract with the Sixers. He supposedly had until Aug. 1 to tell his French team (Chalon) that he planned to play there, which he declined to do. There are rumblings that a portion of Roberts' first year could be guaranteed. Adam Pensack, Roberts' San Francisco-based agent, said Monday that he's “going to have no comment” about contract terms, though Pensack added Roberts “had some interest with Philadelphia.” Bucks County Courier Times

Thaddeus Young has heard the rumors about being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but Friday morning, Young could not say whether or not the reports were true. "I know nothing as of right now," Young said at his annual basketball camp in King of Prussia. "I have seen stories, but as of right now I haven't heard anything. My focus is not on that. It is here at this camp with my son and the rest of the kids at the camp." CSNPhilly.com

Young was asked to reflect on his seven years playing for the team that selected him 12th overall in the 2007 draft. "I still don't know if I am leaving Philadelphia," Young said. "This city has helped me grow and become the basketball player I am today. They let me know when I am doing bad, and they let me know when I am doing well. This city has made me stronger as a basketball player." CSNPhilly.com

After playing 28 games and averaging 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds as a freshman at Kansas, Embiid took his talents to the Twitter-sphere. He already has asked Kim Kardashian to "slide in his direct messages," and has been avidly courting singer Rihanna, once asking her on a date to Giorgios. But Embiid claimed he was just "enjoying himself" in the best way he knew how while recovering from his injury. "I'm just having fun, I'm just messing around," Embiid said with a chuckle. "I'm a 20-year-old kid and I just figured that's a way to have fun safely and I can do anything . . . you have to worry about your image. Everyone looks up to you and people like it when I'm funny on Twitter. During the season, that's probably not a good idea." Philadelphia Inquirer

The Warriors haven't spoken with Minnesota for weeks about Love trade scenarios, another league source said. That's due in part to their long-held reluctance to include Thompson in the discussions, but also due to the fact that the Cavs and Wolves settled on these basic deal points weeks ago -- before Love pulled out of his Team USA obligation, one of the league sources said. One rival GM told CBSSports.com that Minnesota has been exploring a separate trade with Philadelphia for Thaddeus Young, who would replace Love in the Wolves' starting lineup. CBSSports.com

Darren Wolfson: Non-#Twolves FO exec. on Hinkie: "Always asks for way too much." He's doing his job. But also why getting Thad isn't easy. MN still trying. Twitter
