Ognjen Kuzmic C GS 9 hours ago
Kuzmic received a qualifying offer from the Warriors on Monday, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Kuzmic will now be a restricted free agent this summer, meaning the Warriors will have the option to match any offer he receives from another team.
Justin Holiday F GS 9 hours ago
Holiday did not receive a qualifying offer from the Warriors, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Holiday played sparingly as one of the last players off the bench for the NBA Champions, so the decision not to extend a qualifying offer isn't exactly surprising. Holiday could still return to the Warriors next season, but the team will not have the option to match any offer he might receive from another team.
Kyle Korver SG/SF ATL 9 hours ago
Korver (ankle) will undergo a procedure to clean up loose bodies in his right elbow Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Korver, who underwent ankle surgery just over a month ago, was bothered by the elbow injury for much of the season, and it's why he wore a compression sleeve on his shooting arm. Korver will spend the next two months recovering from both procedures, but he said he expects to be ready for the start of training camp in September.
Pierre Jackson PG PHI 12 hours ago
Jackson will be a member of the 76ers' summer league roster, Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears reports.
Jackson missed all of last season after tearing his Achilles during the 2014 Orlando Summer League. Cleared for full basketball activity in April, Jackson is back at full strength, and the high-scoring guard will look to parlay the summer league invite into a roster spot come training camp.
Jae Crowder F BOS 12 hours ago
Crowder (knee) officially received a qualifying offer from the Celtics on Monday, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
As expected, Crowder will be a restricted free agent this summer, enabling Boston the opportunity to match any offer he may receive from another franchise. The Celtics are likely to retain Crowder, barring another team extending him an unexpectedly lucrative offer.
Bismack Biyombo PF/C CHA 13 hours ago
Biyombo will head into free agency after the Hornets failed to extend a qualifying offer Monday, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Biyombo averaged 19 minutes on the court during his 64 appearances last season but the Hornets acquired Spencer Hawes and rookie Frank Kaminsky this offseason, leaving little room for Biyombo when considering that Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller will likely begin the season as starters. Regardless of where Biyombo ends up, he'll likely have a role off the bench and should struggle for relevancy in standard leagues this upcoming season.
Darius Morris PG BKN 13 hours ago
Morris was waived by the Nets on Monday.
The move prevents Morris' deal from becoming guaranteed in advance of Wednesday's deadline. Morris appeared in 38 games for the Nets last season, averaging 2.2 points and 1.3 assists in fewer than eight minutes per game. The reserve guard has spent time with five NBA teams since entering the league in 2011, and he'll be in search of another new home this summer.
Pero Antic C ATL 14 hours ago
Antic is expected to finalize a deal with Fenerbahce/Ulker in the near future, EuroHoops reports.
The restricted free agent reportedly already has a deal in place with Fenerbahce after spending the last two years with the Hawks. The big man appeared in 63 games last season, averaging 5.7 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting just 36.5 percent for the floor.
Jordan Hill PF/C LAL 14 hours ago
Hill will head into free agency after the Lakers decided not to pick up his option for the 2015-16 season, Baxter Holmes of ESPN reports.
Hill actually had the best statistical season of his six-year career last year in Los Angeles but he's apparently not a part of their long-term plans as the franchise regroups after a lackluster finish to their 2014-15 campaign. His departure creates more opportunities for Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black, and incoming rookie Larry Nance, while also allowing Julius Randle to step into the starting five after spending last year recovering from a broken leg. As for Hill's value moving forward, it's entirely dependent upon where he ends up as he could easily be a starter or a rarely-used bench player depending on the quality of his new team.
Marreese Speights PF/C GS 14 hours ago
Speights will remain with the Warriors next season after the team picked up his $3.8 million option Monday, Diamond Leung of the Mercury News reports.
Speights averaged 16 minutes on the court after 76 appearances for the Warriors last season and was a reliable frontcourt option off the bench during the championship campaign. He's in line for a similar role during the 2015-16 season, making him a viable option in deeper formats that can withstand limited production for the majority of the season.
