More on Training Camp Invitations

Chris Haynes: Forward Nick Minnerath reached agreement on 1-year, non guaranteed deal with #Cavs, league sources told @Clevelanddotcom. Played in France.
Although things could change in the next couple of weeks, a source with knowledge of the situation informed me that the Sixers do not expect Jordan McRae to be with the team for upcoming training camp. McRae, who was the 58th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was offered the required tender in the form of a non-guaranteed, one-year minimum deal by the Sixers last week, which allows the team to keep his rights for the season if he again signs overseas. He has yet to accept the offer.
The Pacers will be getting another up-close look at 6-foot-8 forward CJ Fair. The team and Fair have agreed to a non-guaranteed deal for training camp, according to multiple reports.
Shams Charania: Free agent DeQuan Jones has agreed on a training camp deal with the Atlanta Hawks, league sources tell Yahoo. Jones played for ORL in 12-13.
Eric Pincus: A "summer contract" is 1-year, non-guaranteed, with limited injury protection. On a summer contract, a team is responsible for just $6k if the players is injured - even season ending - big difference. If a player gets hurt a standard, non-guaranteed contract - he is compensated until healthy - even if for the season @BBallInsiders
In need of some big bodies, the Wizards have signed a couple centers, Josh Harrellson and Jaleel Roberts, to non-guaranteed contracts with invitations to training camp, which is slated to begin at Towson University on Sept. 29. Despite the lack of centers, both players are long shots to make the Wizards roster because it is already at the 15-man limit and the team plans to utilize more small-ball lineups this season.
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has signed forward Sam Thompson and center Jason Washburn to its training camp roster. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not released. The training camp roster now stands at 18. As a senior at Ohio State last season, Thompson, a 6-7 forward, averaged career highs of 10.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. Over his four-year career at Ohio State, he appeared in 146 games (83 starts), averaging 6.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.9 minutes per game. Thompson went undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Bill Oram: Lakers training camp roster up to 18 with today's addition of Robert Upshaw. Does that mean he'll be a Laker on Oct. 28? Doubtful.
Breakers and Tall Blacks shooting guard Corey Webster is one step closer to his dream of playing in the NBA. Webster has had his stay at the New Orleans Pelicans extended to take in the upcoming official pre-season training camp, which runs from September 29 to October 2. As such he has been signed to a three-year non-guaranteed contract by the organisation. "I am not there yet but this is another positive step towards my dream of playing in the NBA," Webster said from New Orleans. "The past week has gone well and the coaches have been impressed enough by the workouts to want me to stay for the training camp.
David 'Dubi' Pick: Source: LA Clippers sign former draftee Nikoloz Tskitishvili to one-season non-guaranteed deal. Clippers power-forward signee Nikoloz Tskitishvili averaged 21.1 points & 11.6 boards in Lebanon.
The New Orleans Pelicans signed free agent guard Sean Kilpatrick to a two-year partially guaranteed contract on Thursday. Undrafted in 2014, Kilpatrick played in four games with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season and averaged 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Kilpatrick spent most of the 2014-15 season playing in the NBA Development League with the San Cruz Warriors and Delaware 87ers.
Darren Wolfson: Hear former #Twolves center & @Wellefast workout warrior Greg Stiemsma is close to a deal w/ the #Magic. Would be non-guaranteed. #badgers
Three weeks remain until the Washington Wizards kick off the 2015-16 campaign with training camp and the club has begun completing its roster of attendees by signing point guard Ish Smith and combo guard Toure’ Murry to non-guaranteed contracts with training camp invites, according to a person familiar with the situation. Neither player is expected to make the Wizards’ final roster; Washington is already at the 15-man limit and a move to make room for another player is unlikely. If anything, the Wizards prefer entering seasons with a vacant spot for flexibility.
Washington is also interested in inviting center Jaleel Roberts to training camp. A 7-footer, Roberts went undrafted out of UNC-Asheville in June and played on the Wizards’ summer league team. The Wizards are slated to begin training camp at Towson University on Sept. 29. They will spend three days at Towson before completing camp at Verizon Center.
Second-round draft pick J.P. Tokoto has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Tokoto, the 58th overall pick out of North Carolina in the 2015 NBA draft, agreed to a non-guaranteed $525,000 tender offer, clearing the way for him to possibly become a restricted free agent in 2016. The Sixers would have to make him a qualifying offer to keep matching rights – or risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent.
Tim Bontemps: Multiple sources confirm the report from @Adrian Wojnarowski about the Nets giving veteran swingman Dahntay Jones a camp deal. For a Nets team that has gotten young quickly, Jones -- a well-respected vet -- is a good presence to have around.
A: I would not be surprised, with 13 fully guaranteed contracts and with Tyler Johnson's partially guaranteed deal, if the Heat open the season either without a 15th player, or with someone not on a guaranteed deal, perhaps cycling through a variety of players with that roster spot. Ennis could elect to bypass his guarantee in order to remain on more of a game-by-game basis, or the Heat could take an extended look at one of their undrafted free agents in camp, perhaps sending one of those players to the D-League while he remains under guaranteed contract. There could be something to be said about retaining flexibility with that roster spot, as long as the Heat believe they have enough depth at small forward. And I believe that remains a question mark.
Late last week, Markel Brown got another tranche of his guaranteed second year, bringing his total to $200,000. On the first day of training camp, he will get fully guaranteed or $845,059. Next up among the five non-guaranteed deals will be Quincy Miller, who'll get $100,000 on October 28, if he makes the team; and Willie Reed, who becomes fully guaranteed that same day. Donald Sloan has to wait till November 1 to get another $200,000 and Ry Boatright until November 15, when he will get $125,000 if he's still on the team. All salaries become guaranteed on January 10.
Webster is set to fly to America tomorrow for an NBA workout in an attempt to secure a training camp invite, according to Australian website Downtownball. It has not been confirmed at this stage which team Webster will be working out for, but a source indicated it was the New Orleans Pelicans.

With reports that Jokic’s brothers are going to the Monday match after buying tickets, Heat veteran Udonis Haslem recently issued a stern warning to them. “I have nothing to do with that, man,” Haslem said to the Miami Herald. “We’re going to play a basketball game. “That’s over with. I don’t have nothing to do with that. I keep hearing about the Jokic brothers buying tickets to come to the game. They better stay in line and don’t come down there and start trouble. Miami is my city. It’s my city.”
Storyline: Jokic-Morris Beef
Haslem has already expressed his respect for Jokic and a desire to move on from the issue. He reiterated that the Heat will go to play basketball, and that Jokic’s siblings should just enjoy the game and go home afterwards if they do intend to attend. “What the hell you buying tickets for?” Haslem continued. “To come do what? That’s my city. Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing. Come enjoy the game and take your [butts] home. Ain’t nobody messing with your brother. We come to play basketball.”
Curry also seemed fired up to show he can excel on defense, too. After fielding criticism about his defense for most of his 13-year NBA career, Curry impressed the Warriors so much with his six steals, eight deflections and overall hustle that they acknowledged viewing him more as a defensive asset than a liability. “He’s one of the best defenders we have on our team now,” said Warriors forward Draymond Green, who is an early candidate to collect his second Defensive Player of the Year honor this season. “It’s beautiful to watch. When he’s giving the type of effort that he gives on that side of the floor, everyone else has to follow. It makes our defense that much better.”
