Ben Standig: I'm told recent reports that have Marquinhos Vieira joining the Wizards training camp roster don't jive with facts on the ground. The Wizards already have 20 players set for TC, including 6 non-roster invitees. That includes Vander Blue and David Stockton, not Vieria. Twitter @BenStandig

The Brooklyn Nets have signed free agent forward/center Willie Reed, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released. NBA.com

Cleveland Cavaliers center Brendan Haywood is recovering nicely from last year's foot surgery and will practice from the outset once training camp begins Saturday, league sources tell Northeast Ohio Media Group. He will be limited when it comes to certain drills, but his activity will be increased throughout the course of preseason. One source says Haywood's full-contact clear date is "close" if he keeps up this accelerated path. Cleveland Plain Dealer
