Rod Beard: #Pistons make it official, announcing they have waived Joe Johnson and keeping Christian Wood on 15-man roster. Jordan Bone and Louis King are on two-way contracts.

Shams Charania: The Rockets are signing guard Michael Fraizer to a two-way NBA contract, league sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
Jonathan Feigen: As mentioned on Friday, Frazier impressed the Rockets with his work in the off-season program and was expected to compete for a roster spot. Injury on first days of camp prevented that. They had G League rights, but did not want another team to get him on NBA roster with 2-way.
Jonathan Feigen: Chris Clemons will also be converted to a two-way contract, person with knowledge of that and the Frazier move said. That will move the Rockets to the maximum of 15 roster players.
Rick Bonnell: Hornets move Kobi Simmons into the open two-way contract slot, so roster — 15 regular spots, plus two two-ways — is complete for now.
Tony Jones: The Jazz have waived Isaac Haas and Mike Scott. Both will play for the SLC Stars. Utah still has to trim its roster by one to get down to 15. Jarrell Brantley and Justin Wright-Foreman will be two-way players
Charlotte Hornets President of Basketball Operations & General Manager Mitch Kupchak announced today that the team has converted the contract of forward Jalen McDaniels to a two-way contract. The Hornets selected McDaniels with the 52nd overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. McDaniels, a 6-10 forward from San Diego State, earned All-Mountain West Second Team in 2018-19 and All-Mountain West Third Team in 2017-18 as a freshman.
KC Johnson: Bulls have no plans to add player off waiver wire, which would necessitate waiving of Shaq Harrison, who isn't fully guaranteed. Bulls will add one 2-way contract in coming days.
Rod Boone: #Hornets have announced they've converted Caleb Martin's deal to a two-way contract. He had a partially guaranteed deal heading into training camp.

Adam Himmelsbach: League source confirms Tacko Fall’s contract has been converted to a two-way, as @wojespn said. Get ready to party, Portland.
Albert Nahmad: BOS will sign Two-Way SG Max Strus to a 2-year, $2.5M min deal with nearly 1/2 his $898K 1st-year salary guaranteed. Get this symmetry: Max payout on a Two-Way? $411K. If that’s his guarantee, he’d out-earn it on 1/10, the exact day his and all NBA contracts get fully guaranteed.
Mark Murphy: Strus clarifies his two-year deal. "A lot of people think I got the (last) roster spot, but that's not exactly what happened. U have to keep working hard and then we'll see."
Bobby Marks: Converting the Max Strus Two-Way to a standard contract now opens up Boston to having a 2W spot available. A player on an Exhibit 10 contract like Tacko Fall must be converted to a 2W by next Monday.
Shams Charania: The Boston Celtics are signing two-way guard Max Strus to a two-year NBA deal, with a partial guarantee this season of nearly half of rookie minimum, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium .

Ira Winderman: G League season ends March 28, that will leave an additional 18 days two-way players can spend on NBA rosters beyond the 45-day limit between start of G League camp and end of G League regular season.
Albert Nahmad: Bol Bol is expected to accept a two-way contract from DEN (~$410K max payout). But if he doesn’t, DEN would need to issue him a Required Tender (a 1-year, $898K non-guaranteed contract offer) by 9/5 to keep him RFA, which he could accept through 10/15.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets announce that they have signed P.J. Dozier to a training camp deal and Tyler Cook to a two-way contract. The expectation is that second-rounder Bol Bol will also sign a two-way deal meaning the Nuggets could keep their final roster spot open for now.
Mike Singer: #Nuggets expected to sign Summer League standout Tyler Cook to two-way deal, per league source. Team has track record of converting two-way deals to standard contracts. It’s possible he ultimately competes for 15th spot on roster.

Chuck Cooperstein: Mavs announce signing of Antonius Cleveland to a 2 way. He had a good summer and when he played for Mavs in 2018 they did like him quite a bit before he got hurt and was waived. Right now have Roby, Reaves and Macon fighting for 15th spot and other two way

Sources telling @Eurohoopsnet that the NBA champions Toronto Raptors are planning to claim Kostas Antetokounmpo off waivers

July 27, 2021 | 8:16 am EDT Update
Dallas has actively explored trade scenarios involving Josh Richardson, sources said, in the event the swingman opts in to his 2021-22 player option. The Mavericks must make their own efforts to clear salary space for a planned spurge in free agency that still appears to prioritize retaining Tim Hardaway Jr. in addition to Dallas’ other pursuits.
And league executives contacted by B/R continue to mention the possibility of the Sixers holding onto Simmons, should a desirable offer still fail to arise during the draft, in the hopes of Damian Lillard ultimately seeking to leave Portland. Talks between the Raptors and Sixers are considered to be the most advanced of any early conversations Philadelphia has had for the 25-year-old All-Star.
New Orleans’ deal appears directly engineered as a way to clear salary-cap space for an aggressive offer for Kyle Lowry in free agency. The Lakers, Sixers, Mavericks and Heat all remain linked by league sources as potential Lowry suitors, which will be just one element of a cluttered point guard market. It’s believed New Orleans, like each other team just mentioned, would have its sights set on Spencer Dinwiddie should Lowry choose to play elsewhere. The spinning of that point guard carousel will surely impact the landing spots for Lonzo Ball and Dennis Schroder, too.
Houston (Nos. 23, 24) and New York (Nos. 19, 21) have continued their efforts searching to jump into the teens, while Brooklyn also appears active in talks to move up from No. 27, with the Nets offering sharpshooting guard Landry Shamet, sources said. Would a team like Indiana be willing to drop so far back? The Pacers are also discussing Aaron Holiday with rival teams, sources said.
And the next All-Star-caliber player team personnel currently eye as available: Oklahoma City point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who’s suddenly eligible to sign a projected five-year, $168 million rookie scale extension this summer. It would appear, however, any interested team would need to meet the Thunder’s significant asking price. “It’s going to take a f–king lot to get him, but he’s no longer impossible to get,” said one team executive.
That would present a categorical change in the Thunder’s approach to Gilgeous-Alexander from ahead of the 2020 draft last August, sources said, when all four teams selecting within the first four picks contacted OKC about the 23-year-old and were quickly rebuffed by Thunder officials.
There’s still a strong expectation that OKC will search for avenues to move up in the first round, with a swap centered on the Thunder sending pick Nos. 16 and 18 to Charlotte for No. 11 as a deal structure to monitor, sources said. There’s a sense among team officials that Oklahoma City and Toronto are exploring options on swapping the No. 4 and No. 6 picks as well.
