Buycks averaged 19.7 points and 4.3 assists in the Las Vegas Summer League, ranking sixth in scoring and seventh in assists. The Raptors grew fond of Buycks’ play a season ago and received trade interest from other NBA teams for the 25-year-old. Several teams are expected to pursue Buycks in free agency. RealGM

Kevin Pelton: Dwight Buycks' guarantee date is next Monday, so this big game from him is well timed. Twitter @kpelton

Casey and Johnson, who was a non-restricted free agent this summer, met on two occasions in Las Vegas recently ahead of the Vegas summer league tournament. They had a dinner, a breakfast and an earnest man-to-man talk before putting to rest what, if any, lingering resentments remained from that incident two years ago. And then the two decided to give it another try. In the immediate aftermath of the signing, Casey told reporters in Vegas he was convinced that Johnson understood his role going forward, hinting strongly that accepting his role was the at the heart of his problems with Johnson two years earlier.
