7/27/2016 Anderson Varejao, GS, F-C
Varejao won't be able to play in the Olympics for host Brazil due to a herniated disc in his lower back.

Analysis: The veteran center is expected to be ready when the Golden State Warriors open training camp in September. Varejao re-signed with the Warriors earlier this month and averaged 2.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 22 games with the club last season.
7/26/2016 Amar'e Stoudemire, Mia, F-C
Stoudemire signed a one-day contract with the Knicks and promptly announced his retirement after 14 NBA seasons.

Analysis: The 33-year-old averaged 18.9 points and 7.8 rebounds over 846 games and made six All-Star teams - five with Phoenix and one with New York - between 2005-11. Stoudemire also won the NBA's Rookie of the Year award with the Suns in 2002-03. Chronic knee injuries hampered the late stages of his career, as Stoudemire averaged under 24 minutes per game in each of his final four seasons.
7/25/2016 C.J. McCollum, Por, G
McCollum signed a four-year, $106 million extension with the Blazers on Monday.

7/25/2016 Dion Waiters, Mia, G-F
Waiters signed a $5.93 million, two-year contract with the Heat on Tuesday.

Analysis: Waiters averaged 9.8 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder last year, but had several big games in the playoffs. He played particularly well against Dallas and San Antonio in the playoffs before his role was reduced in the seven-game loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals. Waiters will compete for a starting job as Dwyane Wade's replacement.
7/25/2016 Mike Tobey, Cha, C
The Hornets signed Tobey on Monday.

Analysis: Tobey averaged 6.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 16.3 minutes in four seasons at Virginia. He shot 62.2 percent last season, third best in the ACC. He won the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year as a junior. Hornets general manager Rich Cho says Tobey impressed during minicamp and the summer league. He calls Tobey a ''talented young big man with a lot of potential.''
7/25/2016 Brandon Paul, Phi, SG
The 76ers signed Paul on Monday.

Analysis: Paul averaged a club-best 13 points last season for FIATC Joventut in the Spanish Liga ACB and also fared well in the Summer League, averaging 11 points and three rebounds in six games to earn himself an extended look with Philadelphia. He played four seasons at Illinois prior to entering the 2013 NBA draft.
7/25/2016 Ray McCallum, Det, PG
McCallum agreed to a one-year contract with the Pistons on Monday.

Analysis: McCallum averaged 3.3 points last season in 41 appearances for San Antonio and Memphis. He played the previous two seasons for Sacramento. McCallum played college basketball at Detroit, averaging 18.7 points during his final season there in 2012-13.
7/25/2016 Cameron Payne, OKC, PG
Payne is recovering from surgery to repair a broken bone in his right foot. The Thunder announced on Monday that Payne broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot, but is expected to be ready for the start of next season.

Analysis: Payne averaged 5.0 points and 1.9 assists in his rookie season with the Thunder. He was the 14th overall selection in the draft out of Murray State. Payne was coming off a strong performance in the Orlando Summer League, where he led all scorers with 18.8 points per game and also averaged 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists.
7/23/2016 Gerald Green, Bos, 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.
