7/23/2016 Gerald Green, Mia, G-F
The Celtics agreed to a one-year contract with free Green, according to reports Saturday.

Analysis: Green, 30, was originally selected by the Celtics with the No. 18 pick in the 2005 draft. He played for the Celtics from 2005-07, averaging 8.9 points and 2.2 rebounds. He spent last season with the Miami Heat, averaging 8.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 69 games (14 starts).
7/23/2016 Tyler Zeller, Bos, F-C
The Celtics agreed to a two-year deal with Zeller, according to reports Saturday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old Zeller, the 17th overall pick in the 2012 draft, appeared in 60 games for Boston last season, averaging 6.1 points and 3.0 rebounds. The 7-foot center started only three games after playing in 82 games with 59 starts the previous season when he averaged 10.2 points and 5.7 rebounds. Zeller's deal is expected to include a non-guaranteed second season.
7/22/2016 Tim Frazier, NO, PG
The Pelicans re-signed Frazier to a two-year deal worth about $4.1 million on Friday.

Analysis: Frazier played in 16 games for New Orleans late last season, averaging 13.1 points, 7.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 29.3 minutes per game.
7/22/2016 Terrence Jones, NO, F
Jones has left the Rockets to sign a one-year deal with the Pelicans on Friday.

Analysis: Jones, who was Anthony Davis' teammates on Kentucky's 2012 national championship team, has spent his first four NBA seasons with Houston, posting career averages of 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds.
7/21/2016 Aaron Brooks, Ind, PG
The Pacers have signed Brooks to an undisclosed contract.

Analysis: The 31-year-old spent the last two seasons with division-rival Chicago and averaged 7.1 points and 2.6 assists in 69 games for the Bulls in 2015-16. Brooks will compete with Joe Young for the backup point guard job behind newly acquired Jeff Teague.
7/21/2016 Tomas Satoransky, Was, G
The Wizards have signed Satoransky, a second-round pick by the team in the 2012 draft.

Analysis: Satoransky is a Spanish League veteran who averaged 10.7 points and 4.3 assists for Barcelona this past season. The 24-year-old Czech was the 32nd overall choice of 2012.
7/20/2016 Isaiah Canaan, Chi, PG
The Bulls have signed Canaan to a reported two-year contract.

Analysis: Canaan averaged career highs of 11.0 points and 25.5 minutes in 77 games with Philadelphia last season but was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Sixers. The 25-year-old has shot 36.3 percent from 3-point range over three NBA seasons and will likely serve as a long-range specialist off the bench in Chicago.
7/19/2016 Jodie Meeks, Orl, SG
The Magic announced that Meeks has undergone surgery to further stabilize the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

Analysis: The Magic said Meeks will be sidelined indefinitely, and the procedure could sideline the 3-point specialist for the early portion of the regular season. He missed nearly the entire 2015-16 campaign after fracturing the same foot in October, though he did play in Detroit's regular-season finale as well as one playoff game. The Magic acquired Meeks from the Pistons in late June.
7/19/2016 Henry Ellenson, Det, PF
The Pistons have signed Ellenson, the team's 2016 first-round pick, to a multi-year contract.

Analysis: Ellenson, the 18th overall pick, averaged 12.4 points and 7.4 rebounds in five summer league games for Detroit. The 6-foot-11 forward averaged 17 points and 9.7 rebounds during his lone season at Marquette.
7/19/2016 Marc Gasol, Mem, C
Gasol will not participate in the Olympics as he continues his recovery from a broken foot.

Analysis: The two-time All-Star said he wants to make sure he'll be 100 percent at the start of the 2016-17 NBA season. Gasol, who helped Spain to a silver medal in each of the past two Olympics, underwent surgery in February to repair a non-displaced fracture of a navicular bone in his right foot.
7/19/2016 Joe Harris, Bkn, SG
The Nets have signed Harris to a multi-year contract.

Analysis: Harris played in 51 games as a rookie with Cleveland in 2014-15 but just five this past season. The former Virginia standout was traded to Orlando in January and promptly waived by the Magic.
7/19/2016 Mike Miller, Den, G-F
The Nuggets have signed Miller to a two-year deal worth a reported $5 million.

Analysis: The 36-year-old Miller played only 373 minutes last season for Denver but served a valuable role as a mentor on a young squad.
7/18/2016 Miles Plumlee, Mil, F-C
The Bucks have re-signed Plumlee to a four-year deal worth $52 million.

Analysis: The 6-foot-11 Plumlee averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 61 games in 2015-16, his fourth season in the league and first full year in Milwaukee. Plumlee received more playing time in the second half, giving the team an athletic spark off the bench. He started 14 games.
7/18/2016 Álex Abrines, OKC, SG
The Thunder and Abrines agreed on a three-year deal worth a reported $18 million Monday. The 6-foot-6 small guard/shooting forward was the No. 32 overall pick in the 2013 draft. He was acquired by the Thunder as part of the trade that sent James Harden to the Rockets.

Analysis: Abrines averaged 9.6 points in 19.6 minutes in the Spanish ACB and in Euroleague this past year. He has exceptional range, connecting on 49.1 percent of his field-goal attempts and 43.5 percent of his attempts from 3-point range.
7/18/2016 Tyus Jones, Min, PG
Jones won Summer League MVP honors and finished with 27 points in nearly leading the 24th-seeded Wolves to the championship. He won the Final Four Most Outstanding Player award after leaving Duke past Wisconsin for the 2015 national championship.

Analysis: The Timberwolves are pretty deep in the backcourt with the addition of Kris Dunn in the draft, but there's no doubt Jones turned some heads with his performance this summer.
7/18/2016 Denzel Valentine, Chi, SF
Valentine hit the tying 3-pointer with the final second of regulation, then made a jumper at the buzzer in overtime to give the Chicago Bulls an 84-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.

Analysis: Valentine was scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting through three quarters, but he proved that fortunes change quickly in Las Vegas. His 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds forced the extra period after Tyus Jones had just given Minnesota a 77-74 lead on a 3 with 3.6 seconds to go.
7/18/2016 Ben Simmons, Phi, F
Ben Simmons showed off the versatility that made him the No. 1 pick in the draft. The freshman from LSU played in four games for the Philadelphia 76ers in Las Vegas, averaging 12.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.5 assists.

Analysis: If the 76ers do someday get the forward from Australia along with recent high picks Joel Embiid and Dario Saric on the court with second-year forward Jahlil Okafor, the future could be bright after a dismal recent past.
7/18/2016 Jerian Grant, Chi, G
Chicago figures to have a starting backcourt of Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo after signing both players earlier this month, and there's some good young talent behind them. Valentine showed he's a clutch performer, while Grant, acquired from the Knicks in the trade for Derrick Rose, was MVP of the championship game with 24 points and 10 rebounds.

Analysis: Grant also shined at the end of last season for the Knicks, leaving some to believe he could be a sleeper fantasy pick next season.
7/18/2016 Devin Booker, Pho, SG
Phoenix got a look at a promising young core while going 4-2 in Las Vegas. All-Rookie selection Devin Booker averaged 26 points in his two games, top-10 picks Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss both showed potential and guard Tyler Ulis looked like a second-round keeper.

Analysis: Ulis averaged 14.5 points and Chriss had 10.0 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. Bender, the No. 4 pick from Croatia, shot just 27.5 percent from the field but managed 8.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in his five games.
7/18/2016 Tyler Ulis, Pho, PG
Phoenix got a look at a promising young core while going 4-2 in Las Vegas. All-Rookie selection Devin Booker averaged 26 points in his two games, top-10 picks Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss both showed potential and guard Tyler Ulis looked like a second-round keeper.

Analysis: Ulis averaged 14.5 points and Chriss had 10.0 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. Bender, the No. 4 pick from Croatia, shot just 27.5 percent from the field but managed 8.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in his five games.
