  Italy - DeAndre Daniels (ex Dinamica MNV) is a newcomer at Yesilgiresun  - by Fersu Yahyabeyoglu - 15 hours ago

Yesilgiresun Belediye (BSL) strengthened their roster with addition of 25-year old American forward DeAndre Daniels (206-88kg-92, college: Connecticut). He played last season at Dinamica Mantova in Italian Serie A2. In 35 games he recorded 13.0ppg, 6.6rpg and 1.1bpg.
He played in the final of NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, NV.
The previous (15-16) season Daniels played at another team Raptors 905 in U.S. NBA-G-League where in 8 games he averaged just 2.9ppg and 3.3rpg.
Three years ago he was drafted by Toronto Raptors (NBA) in second round (37th overall). The former University of Connecticut staris in his fourth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Daniels was voted Australiabasket.com All-Australian NBL Honorable Mention in 2015.
He has played also professionally in Australia (Perth Wildcats).
The scouts decsribe him following way: He has great speed and is able to get up and down the floor quickly in transition faster than most players his size.
Offensively, Daniels has struggled to find one definitive skill he can hang his hat on to allow him to put up points on a nightly basis, besides filling the lane in transition. Daniels can be tough to matchup against, as he can shoot over smaller defenders in the post from the small forward position and beat bigger defenders off the dribble in isolation situations as a power forward. At this point in his career, his ball handling skills are merely average and he is not strong enough to back down post defenders, so it remains to be seen if he can find sustained success in either of these areas

With the inarguable dominance of the Golden State Warriors, every NBA General Manager not named Bob Riley has had to decide whether to build their teams slowly and hope the Warriors taper off in the next few years or to push their chips in and make a run for the current champs. Well, we now have our answers and it seems the gaps between the haves and have-nots have grown. Let's take a look at the big trades that created would-be contenders for next season's championship.
Minnesota Timberwolves
The first splash made was on June 21, as the Chicago Bulls traded away 2016-17 All NBA 3rd Team member Jimmy Butler to Minnesota. After picking up hometowner Dwayne Wade last year, expectations grew that the Bulls could make some noise in the East. The result was a 41-41 group and a less-than-happy locker room. Butler is thrilled to be reunited with head coach Tom Thibodeau and the T-Wolves expect the three-time All-Star to bring the same offense of departing Zach Levine plus lockdown defense and leadership to great young talents Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony-Towns. Throw in the free-agent acquisition of point guard Jeff Teague and you have a legitimate contender in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
Trade Grade: B
Houston Rockets
Next up was the Rockets. They managed to grab elite point guard Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers. CP3 had one foot out the door with a deteriorating relationship with head coach Doc Rivers. Paul is one of the best distributors in the game (career 9.9apg) and even at 32 years old, is a top defender, with seven All-Defensive First Team awards). He joins a team that is building itself in the image of the Warriors with a premium placed on an up-tempo offensive pace with a lot of three-point shooting. Houston finished last year with the third-best record in the league and, on paper, are now stronger. The question everyone is asking revolves around Paul and Harden's ability to share the ball; if they can, the Rockets might have punched a ticket to the Western Conference finals.
Trade Grade: A
Oklahoma City Thunder
Not to be left out of the Western Conference arms race, the Thunder swooped in and traded for the highly prized Indiana Pacer, Paul George. OKC didn't give up much given the expectation that George will head elsewhere when his contract expires, with the Lakers being his top choice. With George, OKC now has one of the toughest defenses on paper and although getting through the Warriors, Rockets, Wolves and Spurs will be tough, the Thunder, as of August 13, provide great value to win the West at +1700. If George and and reigning MVP Russell Westbrook play well together, Thunder GM Sam Presti believes he can convince both to stay rather than have George - and possibly Westbrook - walk at the end of the season.
Trade Grade: B
Cleveland Cavaliers & Boston Celtics
In a summer of big-name moves, the true blockbuster came on August 21 and surprisingly was between the two prohibitive favorites in the East. The Cavs sent the disgruntled Kyrie Irving to Boston for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was expected to keep methodically building his team for contendership in the near future but with the signing of Gordon Hayward he apparently thinks Irving puts Boston over the top. Thomas has a hip injury with no fixed date of return so his absence hurts the Cavs now and increases their interest in acquiring Dwayne Wade although there's no guarantee there. The addition of Crowder and a likely early first-round pick next year helps them in the future.
Trade Grade: Cavs B / Celtics A-
As with most trades, it takes time to get a true evaluation and when draft picks are included a bad trade can become good, or vice versa. It seems all of these trades were made with an attempt to win in the short-term. Many of these big names have only one year left on their current contract and are UFAs at the end of this season (Paul, Thomas, George) so their departure would be a bitter pill for the teams they currently play for.
While these teams seem to represent the short list of teams to occupy the four conference finals spots, let's not forget that sometimes the best trade you make is the one you don't. The San Antonio Spurs still have kept their roster largely intact with FA signings and still have arguably the best head coach in NBA history. In the East, Toronto, Washington and Milwaukee will look to improve on last year's performances. The rest of the league, however, seems to be content to take the slow lane to rebuild for the long-term and wait for these current Warriors to go away.

  NBA - The Carmelo Anthony trade is official  - by Eurobasket News - 15 hours ago

The Oklahoma City Thunder's trade for 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony (6'8''-SF-84, college: Syracuse) is official, the team and the New York Knicks announced Monday. The Thunder will send center Enes Kanter (6'11''-C-92, college: Kentucky), forward Doug McDermott (6'8''-F-92, college: Creighton) and the Chicago Bulls' 2018 second-round pick to the Knicks to complete the deal. 'We are thrilled to welcome Carmelo to Oklahoma City and the Thunder organization,' Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in an official statement. 'In addition to his skill level, experience, and unique talents, Carmelo is another high character, professional player for our roster.' Anthony spent seven seasons in New York, averaging 24.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists during those years, shooting 44 percent from the field and 37 percent from 3-point range. 'This is a deal we feel works for both this franchise and Carmelo," Knicks President of Basketball Operations Steve Mills said in an official statement. "We thank him for his seven seasons in a Knicks uniform and all that he accomplished off the court for the City of New York by using his platform to address social issues. We will continue to focus on this team looking forward towards the immediate and long-term future. As we have said recently, this is a new beginning for the New York Knicks.' Anthony, who waived a no-trade clause to come to Oklahoma City, had told the Knicks he wanted out of New York months ago, initially pushing for a deal to the Houston Rockets. The Knicks and Rockets could not work anything out with Houston having to send over power forward Ryan Anderson's three-year contract in any conceivable agreement. The Knicks were looking for shorter contracts. Eventually, Anthony expanded his list of teams to include the Cleveland Cavaliers and Thunder. The Knicks brought in Kanter and McDermott to replace some of the scoring they would be losing with the departure of Anthony. 'We acquired two 25-year-old players in this deal that we can develop, while sticking with our overall strategy of emphasizing youth and athleticism," Knicks general manager and former Thunder assistant GM Scott Perry said. "With this trade, we have added scoring and aggressiveness to our frontcourt, and bolstered the team's perimeter shooting. We are glad to have finalized a trade that made sense for all of us.'

  NBA - Clippers trade DeAndre Liggins to Hawks for trade exception  - by Eurobasket News - 15 hours ago

The Los Angeles Clippers traded guard Deandre Liggins (6'6''-G-88, college: Kentucky) and cash to the Atlanta Hawks, league sources told ESPN. The Clippers created a $1.67 million trade exception with the move. They'll have one year to use the exception. The Hawks are sending the Clippers the draft rights of an immediately undetermined player, league sources said. The Hawks will waive Liggins, who will be owed $26,000 on his 2017-18 contract, league sources said. The Clippers acquired Liggins, 29, as part of the blockbuster Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) deal with the Houston Rockets in June. The move leaves the Clippers with 19 players on roster for the start of training camp in Hawaii this week. It also drops the Clippers $122,000 below the luxury tax level. Liggins has had NBA stops with Orlando, Oklahoma City, Miami, Cleveland and Dallas.

  NBA - Jenkins is back at the Hawks  - by Eurobasket News - 15 hours ago

Atlanta Hawks signed 26-year old guard John Jenkins (193-98kg-91, college: Vanderbilt). It is actually his comeback to the Hawks as he has played here before. Jenkins played last season at Westchester Knicks. In 16 NBA G League games he had very impressive stats: 20.9ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.9apg. Jenkins also spent pre-season at the Suns. But in four NBA games he recorded just 1.8ppg.
In 2012 Jenkins was drafted by the Hawks in first round (23rd overall). He has never attended the college and entered pro basketball just after his high school.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Jenkins was voted NABC Division I All-District 21 1st Team back in 2011 and 2012.
He represented USA at the World University Games in Shenzhen (China) six years ago. His stats at that event were 7 games: 13.3ppg, 1.9rpg, 1.3apg, FGP: 52.0%, 3PT: 39.6%, FT: 90.9%.
Jenkins has played previously for four other teams: Dallas Mavericks, Salt Lake City Stars, Northern Arizona Suns and Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
He could be described: (by Jorrye Nixon for NBADraft.net in 2012)
Has a natural, fundamentally sound jumper that allows him to be nearly equally effective spotting up, coming off screens, and off the dribble Always shoots the same shot, and keeps his shoulders and feet squared at all times Quick release. He struggles off the dribble to create much offense for himself because he simply doesn't have the quickness to be more than a sporadic slasher to the rim Doesn't have many moves when handling the ball, and only does handle the ball when a jumper is simply out of the question

  Bosnia - KK Dynamic BG Beograd tabs Bozo Djurasovic, ex Zrinjski HT  - by Ivan Milenkovic - 1 day ago

Free-agent guard Trey Burke (6'1''-PG-92, college: Michigan) has changed course on a non-guaranteed deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder and will remain a free agent, league sources told The Vertical.

Burke spent last season with the Washington Wizards, averaging five points and 1.8 assists in 57 games. Burke was the No. 9 overall pick in 2013 out of Michigan, where he led the program to the national championship game in his final season as a sophomore. Burke was traded to the Wizards last offseason after spending three seasons in Utah, which acquired him in a draft-day deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He has averaged 10.6 points and 3.6 assists per game for his career. The Thunder on Saturday reached agreement to acquire New York Knicks All-Star Carmelo Anthony for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round pick.
