More on Training Camp Invitations

Ian Begley: Knicks have agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with PG Chasson Randle, sources confirm. First reported by the NY Daily News.
Michael Scotto: Source: Hornets have invited Andrew Andrews (Washington) to training camp. Andrews led the Pac-12 in scoring averaging 20.9 points per game.
Shams Charania: Sacramento has waived guard David Stockton, son of Hall of Famer John Stockton, source tells Yahoo. Eric Moreland secures Kings roster.
Bill Herenda: Corey Hawkins likely headed to Miami Heat NBA D-League team Sioux Falls Skyforce @SFSkyforce according to sources @BigWestMBB @BigWestSports
The Los Angeles Lakers have waived guard Michael Frazier II and center Robert Upshaw, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak.
The NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guard/forward Xavier (zah-vee-ay) Henry and free agent forward Chris Udofia to contracts, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not released.
Ira Winderman: The Heat have waived Corey Hawkins and signed Briante Weber. Both likely will wind up with Heat D-League affiliate. The Heat made a similar late-camp move last year with Larry Drew II, to get him some camp money before D-League assignment.
The Orlando Magic have waived guards Keith Appling and Jordan Sibert, General Manager Rob Hennigan announced today. Orlando’s roster now stands at 17. After clearing waivers, the two will join the Magic's D-League team, the Erie Bayhawks.
The roster decisions would seem to be rather clear-cut. Coty Clarke, Malcolm Miller, Levi Randolph and Corey Walden are likely on their way to the Maine Red Claws of the D-League eventually, leaving 16 guaranteed contracts for 15 available spots with the big club. Barring a deal that clears a contract, Perry Jones would seem to have the biggest burden of proof this week. “I haven’t talked to Danny (Ainge) about the final cuts at all,” Stevens said. “In fact, I haven’t done that really in my years here. They usually just tell me, ‘Hey, by the way, we have to make cuts soon.’ I think the biggest thing for Perry is, Perry has a chance to be a very, very good multi-positional defender, and he’s got a chance to be a guy that can play off closeouts, make shots or post switches. So being able to do those things regularly is a huge key. But I’ve been impressed with what Perry can do, what he has done, especially in practice.”
Scott said that he will not cut anyone from the roster before Monday’s game, but aims to do so prior to Thursday’s. The Lakers currently have 19 players and must trim down to 15 for the regular season.
Sam Amico: Cavs have signed F Jack Cooley, per GM David Griffin. Cooley appeared in 16 games for Jazz last season. Jazz released him this week.
Chris Haynes: Per @Shams Charania, #Cavs are bringing in Jack Cooley for camp. I'm told the team will waive Chris Johnson.
Scott said he and general manager Mitch Kupchak will make roster cuts “probably next week.” The Lakers have to trim their 19-man roster to at least 15 by their season opener on Oct. 28.
Camp invite Jared Cunningham is by far the favorite to claim the 14th slot at this point. The team isn't totally against taking on 15 by adding two roster hopefuls, but I'm told it would take an extraordinary effort on the part of the other invites to make that a possibility.
One of those remains finalizing the 15-man roster. And to that end, two of the players in the competition for the final spot — guards Nick Johnson and Erick Green — were on the court for extended minutes Friday in Denver's 106-81 victory against the Phoenix Suns at the Pepsi Center. Johnson had three points (1-of-7 shooting) and three assists in 19 minutes and Green had seven points (2-of-5) with two assists and a rebound in 21 minutes. Each was out there with a lot to prove. It was Johnson's second consecutive game with ample court time. "Nick Johnson got a great opportunity at Golden State in the first half, rotation minutes," Malone said of Tuesday's game.
The training camp battle between Tim Frazier and Phil Pressey is expected to go down to the wire. But after more than two weeks of training camp and four exhibition games, it seems as if Frazier has distanced himself in the race to be the Trail Blazers' third-string point guard. Not that anyone affiliated with the Blazers would say so. "I think they're both doing a good job of competing," coach Terry Stotts said Friday after his team's practice. "We'll make a decision next week."
The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has waived center Jerome Jordan, who was originally signed by the team on Oct. 11. Jordan, 7-0, 253, appeared in 44 games for the Brooklyn Nets during the 2014-15 season, averaging 3.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game. New Orleans’ roster now stands at 19.
The Sacramento Kings announced today they have waived Marshall Henderson and Vince Hunter, according to Kings Vice President and General Manager Vlade Divac.
Marc J. Spears: The Warriors have waived guard Ben Gordon. Free agent guard Ben Gordon appeared in two preseason games with the Warriors. He averaged 1.0 points and 1 assists in 8.3 minutes per game.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Rockets claimed Iranian forward Arsalan Kazemi off waivers, league source tells Yahoo Sports. He had been on Atlanta roster.

The 28-year-old averaged 12.3 points and a league-leading 9.2 rebounds in 26.8 minutes while shooting 56.3 percent from the field, in 29 games (21 starts) last season for Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyesi. Unselected in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles native also made three appearances for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2015 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The Grizzlies’ roster stands at 20 players.
The Memphis Grizzlies today announced the team has waived center Michael Holyfield. Holyfield (6-11, 270) signed with Memphis as a free agent on Sept. 28 and played eight minutes in the Grizzlies’ preseason opener last night against the Houston Rockets.

The Baton Rouge, La. native attended Ridgeway High School in Memphis before beginning his collegiate career. The Grizzlies’ roster stands at 20 players. An updated roster is attached.
The Cavaliers have signed center Michael Dunigan, the team revealed on its training camp roster, one that also officially confirmed earlier reports of deals with Jared Cunningham, Austin Daye, Chris Johnson, Nick Minnerath and D.J. Stephens. Quinn Cook also appears on the roster, so it looks like he and the team have worked out a deal, as expected. Cleveland has 20 players, 13 of whom have fully guaranteed contracts, though those totals don’t include Tristan Thompson, who remains in restricted free agency with Thursday looming as the final day for him to sign his qualifying offer before it expires. The Cavs would have to waive a player before signing Thompson, since they’re at the preseason roster limit.
