8/26/2014 Mike Scott, PF The Atlanta Hawks have re-signed Mike Scott, who improved his 3-point shot in his second season and almost doubled his scoring average.

Analysis: Scott, a second-round pick from Virginia in 2012, averaged 9.6 points last season, up from 4.6 as a rookie. He started six of his 80 games and also averaged 3.6 rebounds. Scott made 62 of 200 3-point attempts last season after missing his only 3 as a rookie.

The Clippers are also receiving a future first-round pick.

Analysis: Dudley averaged 6.9 points last year in his only season with the Clippers. Delfino signed as a free agent last year with Milwaukee but never played a game because of a foot injury. The 7-foot-1 Raduljica averaged 3.8 points in 2013-14.

The 34-year-old entered the NBA with Philadelphia after being selected 26th overall in the 2002 draft.

8/26/2014 Hasheem Thabeet, C The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded center Hasheem Thabeet and cash to the Philadelphia 76ers for a protected second-round draft pick in 2015 and a trade exception. The deal was announced on Tuesday. The Thunder have a year to use the trade exception.

Analysis: Thabeet, a 7-foot-3 defensive specialist from Tanzania, played in 66 games in 2012 and averaged nearly a block per contest. His playing time was reduced last season when first-round pick Steven Adams emerged as the backup center.
8/26/2014 Ronnie Brewer, G-F Brewer has been sentenced to probation after pleading no contest to driving drunk in Beverly Hills. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office says the 29-year-old Brewer entered the plea to the misdemeanor charge through an attorney Tuesday. Prosecutors had alleged he was driving at about twice the legal blood-alcohol limit when he was pulled over near Rodeo Drive in February.

Analysis: A judge immediately sentenced Brewer to three years of summary probation and fined him $390. He was also ordered to attend alcohol abuse classes and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Brewer has played for six NBA teams since the Utah Jazz drafted him in 2006, including two stints with the Chicago Bulls, who released him last month.

Analysis: The Timberwolves are getting No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins and former top pick Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and Young from Philadelphia.
8/22/2014 Shelvin Mack, PG The Atlanta Hawks have re-signed Mack, who general manager Danny Ferry says proved to be a good fit for coach Mike Budenholzer's system.

Analysis: Mack averaged 7.5 points and ranked second on the team with 3.7 assists per game. He played in 73 games, including 11 starts, and ranked seventh in the NBA with his average of 3.04 assists per turnover. Ferry said Friday the 24-year-old Mack showed the "toughness and level of unselfishness that we truly value." Terms of the deal were not released. As a starter, Mack averaged 10.5 points and 4.7 assists.
8/20/2014 Jack Cooley, PF The Utah Jazz have signed Cooley.

Analysis: The 6-foot-9 forward played last season for Trabzonspor in the Turkish Basketball League, averaging 12.6 points and 6.9 rebounds in 28 games. Cooley was undrafted after four years at Notre Dame, where he averaged 13.1 points and 10.1 rebounds in the 2012-13 season as a senior. He finished his career with 1,017 points, 792 rebounds and 32 double-doubles for the Fighting Irish.
8/20/2014 Derrick Rose, PG Rose is sitting out the U.S. national's team exhibition game against the Dominican Republic on Wednesday night, with coach Mike Krzyzewski saying he wants to look at other guards.

Analysis: Rose has sat out the last two practices as he works his way back into shape after sitting out most of the last two seasons, though there has been no indication from the Chicago Bulls star or U.S. officials that he is hurting. Rose said after Tuesday's practice he just wanted extra rest. Rose started the Americans' exhibition game against Brazil on Saturday. The team still has 16 players on the roster and must get down to 12 before the Basketball World Cup.
8/19/2014 Dante Cunningham, PF The agent for Cunningham says his client plans to file a civil lawsuit against the woman who accused him of domestic assault. Agent Joel Bell tells The Associated Press that Cunningham wants to clear his name after authorities dismissed a felony assault charge against Cunningham on Monday. The woman accused Cunningham of choking her in April.

Analysis: After a four-month investigation, the Hennepin County prosecutor announced that the charge was dismissed because "there was not proof beyond a reasonable doubt for the charged offense." Cunningham had to put his search for a new contract on hold while the investigation was conducted. Now he says he is eager move on and sign a deal, perhaps with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team he has played for the last two seasons.

The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year.
