7/29/2015 Chris Copeland, Mil, F
The Bucks have signed free agent forward Chris Copeland, adding veteran depth to their young frontcourt.

Analysis: While with the Pacers, Copeland was stabbed in the elbow and abdomen outside a New York nightclub early in the morning of April 8. Undrafted out of Colorado in 2006, Copeland played overseas and in the NBA's D-League before breaking into the NBA with the New York Knicks in 2012-13. Bucks coach Jason Kidd was Copeland's teammate on that Knicks team.
7/28/2015 Nikola Jokic, Den, C
The Nuggets have signed 20-year-old Serbian center Nikola Jokic to a multi-year contract.

Analysis: Jokic, a second-round draft pick, has spent the last three years playing for KK Mega Vizura of the Adriatic League. In five starts for the Nuggets summer league team, the 6-foot-10, 250-pound center averaged 8 points. 6.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 blocks in 21 minutes per game.
7/27/2015 Mike Miller, Por, G-F
A person familiar with the trade says the Cavaliers have traded Miller and center Brendan Haywood to Portland to create salary-cap room and save luxury-tax money.

Analysis: The Blazers are expected to cut Haywood, who barely played for Cleveland last season. Miller was signed last summer, bringing playoff experience and 3-point shooting to the Cavs, but he was hardly used in the playoffs.
7/27/2015 Brendan Haywood, Por, C
A person familiar with the trade says the Cavaliers have traded forward Mike Miller and Haywood to Portland to create salary-cap room and save luxury-tax money.

Analysis: The Cavs have been shopping Haywood's expiring $10.5 million contract deal for weeks and worked out a deal with the Blazers, who will also get two second-round picks from Cleveland, said the person who spoke Monday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending league approval. The Blazers are expected to cut Haywood, who barely played for Cleveland last season.
7/27/2015 Gerald Wallace, GS, F
The Warriors have completed the trade sending two-time All-Star forward David Lee to the Celtics for Wallace and Chris Babb.

Analysis: The teams announced the deal Monday. They agreed to the trade July 7, but Boston needed time to sort out other moves in free agency before acquiring Lee.
7/27/2015 Chris Babb, GS, SG
The Warriors have completed the trade sending two-time All-Star forward David Lee to the Celtics for Gerald Wallace and Babb.

Analysis: The teams announced the deal Monday. They agreed to the trade July 7, but Boston needed time to sort out other moves in free agency before acquiring Lee.
7/27/2015 Matthew Dellavedova, Cle, G
A person familiar with the agreement says the Cavaliers will re-sign free agent guard Matthew Dellavedova to a one-year contract.

Analysis: Dellavedova, who emerged as an unlikely postseason contributor after All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving was injured, will sign for $1.2 million for next season, said the person who spoke Monday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been signed.
7/27/2015 Shabazz Napier, Orl, PG
The Heat trimmed roster and payroll Monday, sending Napier to the Magic and Zoran Dragic to the Celtics.

Analysis: Napier was a first-round selection after leading Connecticut to the 2014 NCAA title and played in 51 games for Miami, averaging 5.1 points and 2.5 assists. Orlando sent a protected 2016 second-rounder to Miami for Napier.
7/27/2015 Zoran Dragic, Bos, SG
The Heat trimmed roster and payroll Monday, sending Shabazz Napier to the Magic and Dragic to the Celtics.

Analysis: Dragic, the brother of Heat guard Goran Dragic, appeared in 16 games. He'll earn $1.7 million this season, while Napier makes about $1.3 million. The moves also should help relieve Miami's luxury tax for next season. Boston sent a protected 2019 second-rounder for Zoran Dragic, while picking up a 2020 second-rounder and cash to cover his 2015-16 salary.
7/27/2015 Lavoy Allen, Ind, F-C

7/27/2015 Glenn Robinson III, Ind, SF
The Pacers signed Robinson III to a three-year deal.

Analysis: Robinson played in high school in Indiana and starred at the University of Michigan before leaving school early. His father, Glenn, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1994 draft.
7/27/2015 Jamil Wilson, Dal, PF

Analysis: The 6-foot-7 Wilson averaged 10.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 41 games last season with Bakersfield of the NBA D-League.
7/27/2015 Goran Dragic, Mia, G
Dragic of the Miami Heat is not expected to play for Slovenia in the EuroBasket tournament in September.

Analysis: Heat President Pat Riley met with Dragic about his invitation to join the team, and it was collectively decided that it would be in the point guard's best interests to spend the rest of the summer preparing for his first full year in Miami.
7/25/2015 James Jones, Cle, G-F
The Cavaliers have re-signed small forward James Jones, who provided leadership and long-range shooting for the Eastern Conference champions last season.

Analysis: Jones will make the veteran's minimum next season. He played in 57 games and made two starts in his first season with Cleveland. He also appeared in 20 postseason games, averaging 4.4 points in 15.6 minutes.
7/24/2015 Phil Pressey, Por, PG
The Portland Trail Blazers have signed Pressey and forward Cliff Alexander.

7/23/2015 Maurice Ndour, Dal, PF
The Mavericks have signed free-agent rookie forward Maurice Ndour. Dallas announced the deal Thursday.

Analysis: The 6-foot-9 Ndour, a native of Senegal, averaged 9.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in five games for the New York Knicks' summer league team this month. Ndour averaged 16 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game as a senior last season at Ohio University.
