Baker, 24, said he’s unclear if he’ll visit other clubs and stressed his agents are in charge. “It’s kind of up in the air,’’ Baker said of summer-league. “I’m not sure how the (free-agent) process works. I think I played a lot of quality minutes. I feel like the Knicks and other organizations know what I bring. Not that I’m shying away from summer league. Free agency is obviously a very important part of an athlete’s career. The decision not to play might be better than to actually play sometimes .’’
IThe Celtics likely will have the most intriguing summer league team in Utah and Las Vegas when play begins next month. In addition to adding the No. 1 overall pick and potentially three second-round choices, director of player personnel Austin Ainge said Boston’s core of returning players is expected to include Jaylen Brown, Jordan Mickey, Ante Zizic and Demetrius Jackson, among others.
But 6-foot-9-inch forward Guerschon Yabusele remains sidelined after undergoing surgery last month to have bone spurs removed from his ankles. Ainge said that Yabusele will not accompany the team during summer league play, instead remaining in Boston to maintain his rehabilitation schedule.
Rod Beard: It appears that Henry Ellenson will be #Pistons focal point at summer league. If they keep the draft pick, he will be a second key player.
As reported by French journal Var-Matin (h/t to BeBasket.fr), French forward William Howard, who recently signed a one-year deal with Limoges CSP, is expected to join the Memphis Grizzlies in July to play in the Summer League. Howard played in Pro B this season with Hyeres-Toulon, averaging 9.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
Mitchell Creek, who has already locked in a Summer League spot with the Utah Jazz, will participate in Utah’s free agent mini-camp ahead of playing with the Jazz in both the Salt Lake City (July 3-6) and Las Vegas (July 7-17) Summer Leagues.
Nets Daily: Told Prince Ibeh is working out with Nets this summer. After going undrafted out of Texas he joined LI Nets last year. 6'11' C 7'5" wingspan. Ibeh @P33zus was DPOY in Big12. Lobs and blocks guy.
Do you plan on playing summer league with Denver? Juan Hernangomez: Yeah, I think I’m going to play summer league. I like to compete. They asked me if I was down for it and I really would like to go and play a couple of games, be around the team and keep developing as a player.
Zizic is expected to join the Celtics once his Turkish season is complete and should play in summer league. Yabusele will be able to resume basketball activities this summer and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
David 'Dubi' Pick: L.A. Clippers and James Bell, I'm told, agreed on Summer League deal. He's an MVP contender for No. 1 seed in Israel.
Owner Mark Cuban declined to comment about Ding. He said more will be known after July 1 when the signing can become official. However, Cuban last year hired a Mandarin-speaking employee, Ryan Kline. He is from Dallas and attended Yale. He, too, declined to talk about the impact that Ding might have on the Mavericks off the court.
Vincent Ellis: Another tidbit, SVG: Stanley Johnson likely won't play at Orlando Pro Summer League for Detroit Pistons on.freep.com/2qDWT6L via @freep
The Mavericks have put the wheels in motion to sign veteran Chinese swingman Ding Jinhui this summer and have him play in their summer league and likely be on their training camp roster, president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said.
Ben Standig: Some Wizards Summer League news for ya. Chris McCullough told me he'll be in Vegas. Maybe all assumed, but no lock for 3rd year players.
If the franchise does start in 2017-18, the Clippers would push harder to have 2016 second-round pick David Michineau come to the United States to develop in their system rather than spend another season in France. At the very least, the hope is that Michineau will play in summer league in Las Vegas.
The Thunder will go its separate ways for the offseason, but one player will be back in an Oklahoma City uniform this summer. Rookie Domantas Sabonis plans to play for the Thunder's team at the Orlando Pro Summer League in July.
Sixers coach Brett Brown was asked about the possibility of Ben Simmons playing in the summer league. "I think it would be good if he did," Brown said. "But I wouldn't say it is a prerequisite. Still, his health and the judgment of his health rules the day. I don't know what that looks like when we are talking about the summer league."
The third surgery installed a synthetic material that is mostly indiscernible and believed to be the first in a pro basketball player. It requires a close view to notice scarring under his hair, the only visual remnants of his ordeal. It sure does not show in his play, which included returning for Gran Canaria’s last 10 games in April and May. “It was never a question of 'if,'” Kuric said. “It was just 'when.' Afterward, I’m just so much more thankful about everything. I don’t have bad days. Nothing bothers me. Somebody cuts you off in traffic. It’s no big deal. Whatever. Go ahead.
“Nobody here knows what happened, which is great. I don’t want people looking at me thinking, ‘Awwww, get him a basket please. Let him shoot, like the 13th guy coming off the bench when you’re down by 30.’" Instead, entering Tuesday's summer league action, Kuric has been the Suns "guy coming off the bench" for 16 points in 28 minutes of play … eight months after nearly dying.
Mike Richman: Shabazz Napier will play for the Blazers summer league team. Should get real minutes since he's the only roster guy who can play PG.
Alex Kennedy: Nate Wolters will play with the Washington Wizards' Summer League team in Vegas. He played with the Indiana Pacers in Orlando Summer League.
Alex Kennedy: Source: Brandon Paul will play with the 76ers' Summer League team in Las Vegas. He did well with the Hornets while in Orlando Summer League.
Alex Kennedy: D-League MVP Jarnell Stokes is playing for the San Antonio Spurs' Summer League team. He averaged 20.6 PPG (on 66.5 FG%), 9.3 RPG last year.
Mitchell Brown: BIG NEWS! Former @ODUMBB guard Trey Freeman is now playing with the Houston Rockets in the NBA Summer League. @WTKR3 #WTKRSports
Alex Kennedy: Quinn Cook to play for D-League Select Team in Summer League. He was D-League ROY (19.6 PPG, 5.4 APG, 3.9 RPG 1.2 SPG, 46.6% FG, 38.2% 3PT).

You’re here for at least the next five years now that you’ve signed an extension. Do you allow yourself to think – or dream – about what might come over that time span since you’ve talked openly about wanting to win a title in New York? Have you allowed yourself to think about how things might progress? Julius Randle: Obviously, it’s a process. Everything is a process. We’ve been building this from the ground up. But for me, personally, that is the expectation (winning a title in New York). That’s what I want to happen within that time frame. There’s a lot of things, factors that go into that. So obviously you’ve got to weigh that stuff in.
Julius Randle: But as far as myself, I know Thibs (Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau) is thinking (it as well), it’s just win at all costs. For me personally, that’s just how I prepare myself. I prepare myself to compete at the highest level of our game. Like I said, there’s a lot of factors (that go into winning an NBA title). But I trust Leon (Knicks president Leon Rose), I trust Thibs, Wes (Knicks vice president William Wesley), our coaches, Scott (Knicks GM Scott Perry) – all these guys, I trust. That was part of my process in thinking of signing the extension and that’s my goal, that’s our goal as a team and the guys that are around us. We want to be able to say that we won a championship here in New York. I don’t think there’s any better feeling than that.
Did you guys see the video clip of Trae Young at the Garden with WWE? Do you care about that stuff? Julius Randle: Yeah I see it. But honestly, I don’t care. Obviously, that’s (for) entertainment purposes and all that (stuff), so I let people enjoy it. For me, honestly, I don’t care. I honestly didn’t even watch it. Knicks fans, they’re going to make a big deal out of it – they didn’t like it (laughs). But it’s all fun and games and hopefully they enjoyed it.

Rockets re-sign Dante Exum, waive Tyler Bey

The Rockets have officially re-signed guard Dante Exum and waived Tyler Bey to create a roster space for him, according to the NBA’s transactions log. Hoops Rumors’ JD Shaw was the first to report the Bey transaction (Twitter link). With John Wall not expected to play for the team this season as it seeks to trade him, the Rockets were in the market for another point guard. The Rockets’ interest in Exum surfaced on Tuesday.

Timberwolves sign Leandro Bolmaro

When the Timberwolves traded up to get Leandro Bolmaro last November in the 2020 NBA Draft (yes, it was less than a year ago… it still feels weird), the question was would it be a year or two before Bolmaro came over from Barcelona to play in the NBA. The answer is one. Minnesota reached a deal and Bolmaro will be with the Timberwolves in training camp, the team announced Saturday. This is not a surprise; he was expected to come over this season. He will be playing on a rookie scale contract.
