Eric Pincus: I hear Michael Frazier will sign a D-League contract in new day or so - expecting to become a Lakers affiliate player with D-Fenders
Ryan McDonald: As expected, the Jazz have waived E.J. Singler. We should see him on the Idaho Stampede roster this season
James Ham: The Sacramento Kings have waived point guard David Stockton. He is definitely a candidate for the Reno Bighorns.
The 27-year-old forward will play for the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers' Development League affiliate.
Bobby Marks: $75k cap hit for the Hawks. Since no @nbadleague team for ATL, Petteway if he chooses can enter the draft pool.
Andy Larsen: I'm 100% sure that signing E.J. Singler (Kyle's brother!) is just to get his D-League rights on the Idaho Stampede. Good shooter, though.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Wisconsin-Green Bay's Keifer Sykes, released by San Antonio, plans to join Spurs' D-League affiliate in Austin, league source tells Yahoo.
Adam Johnson: Phoenix Suns training camp invite Terrico White will play for their D-League affiliate the Bakersfield Jam, source tells D-League Digest.

“Getting closer every day. Doing a little bit more and more every day. I’m trying to be smart about it. Pass all the tests I need to pass and get ready to go, and stay mentally engaged at the same time to be ready for the season,” Curry said. “[I’m doing] full individual workouts … a bit of everything except playing five-on-five. That’s pretty much where I’m at.”
Curry had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in May after playing through pain last season. He’s estimated that he’s 85-90 percent, while Nash is hoping Curry can cameo in the Oct. 14 preseason finale in Minnesota. “That’d be ideal. Can’t guarantee it. Whenever he’s ready, he’ll be ready. To be determined,” Nash said. “We’ve got to monitor his progress every day and see how it progresses.”
With the Heat dealing away Herro at $5.7 million for trade purposes while below the luxury tax line, it can only take back 175 percent of the outgoing salary plus $100,000. That means Miami would only be able to acquire about $10 million in salaries in this trade.
Since the Heat is only able to take in about $10 million in this deal, the other team would not be able to acquire Herro’s $22 million incoming salary in this hypothetical scenario unless it had the necessary cap space to take in the extra $12 million. That’s because teams without cap space who send out about $10 million are limited by NBA salary cap rules to taking back a maximum of $15 million if they are not in the luxury tax and about $12.6 million if they are in the luxury tax as part of this trade. So if a disgruntled star becomes available this season, the Heat likely would not be able to trade Herro as part of a package.
Barry Jackson: Pat Riley, in announcing Herro extension just now: “Tyler is an impact multi-faceted player and we are excited to have him signed for the next 5 years. His improvement every year since we drafted him has led to this day. We believe he will continue to get better.”
Josh Lewenberg: Sounds like Josh Jackson has turned some heads in camp this week, and he’s looked good tonight. The Raptors like his defense, but he’s showing he can get to the rim too. Making a case for that final roster spot with early favourite Justin Champagnie out.
Kellan Olson: Monty Williams said one of the main things he’s looking at with the bench this preseason is the 4 spot specifically and if he can go big there. Mentioned the economy of the league making it more challenging to do but he thinks the Suns could potentially make it work.
