Keith Smith: Fun cap process for Bruno Fernando and Houston. Was on a camp deal. That can’t be reworked without waiving. So, Rockets convert to a Two-Way, then sign the new deal from the Two-Way. This keeps Fernando from being exposed to waivers, where he could have been claimed. Good work.
Andrew Lopez: Re: Pels injuries Willie Green said Brandon Ingram had some soreness in a toe. Not sure if he’ll miss preseason games or not. CJ McCollum had ankle soreness but practiced fully today. Said it’s day to day with both.
