Chance Comanche

Comanche signed a training camp deal with the Kings on Wednesday, Frankie Cartoscelli of reports. Comanche spent most of the 2022-23 season with the Kings G-League affiliate in Stockton and averaged 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game before briefly joining the Trail Blazers during the final days of the campaign. With each of the three two-way slots filled for Sacramento, Comanche will most likely end up in the G League once again in 2023-24.

Buddy Hield

Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that contract extensions between Hield and the Pacers have stalled, so Indiana has begun trade conversations. Hield started 73 of 80 games for Indiana last season, averaging 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.0 minutes per game. He shot 42.5 percent from deep, the second-highest mark of his career. However, the Pacers added Bruce Brown, Jarace Walker and Obi Toppin to their wing group this offseason, and it appears Hield is the odd man out. Hield has one year remaining on the four-year, $94 million extension he signed with the Kings in 2019.

Xavier Moon

The Clippers signed Moon to an Exhibit 10 contract Wednesday, Michael Scotto of USA Today Sports reports. Moon made four appearances for the Clippers in 2022-23, averaging 1.8 points and 1.3 assists in 5.0 minutes. He will likely compete for the team's remaining two-way roster spot.

Aleksej Pokusevski

Pokusevski (arm) sustained a right ankle sprain during an offseason workout Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in six weeks, Brandon Rahbar of reports. Pokusevski suffered a small right humerus fracture at the beginning of June and was unable to play for the Serbian national team in the FIBA World Cup as a result. Although he was evidently cleared to resume working out, he's now dealing with an ankle issue that will force him to miss several weeks and could sideline him for the start of the regular season. Pokusevski has had a relatively consistent role over his first three seasons with the Thunder, averaging 8.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 21.7 minutes per game.

Keifer Sykes

Sykes signed a contract with the Nets on Wednesday, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. The details of the deal weren't disclosed, but this was presumably an Exhibit 10 deal, meaning Skyes will likely wind up back in the G League after spending training camp with the Nets. Across 29 appearances (27 starts) for the Motor City Cruise last year, Sykes averaged 15.6 points, 7.7 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 32.0 minutes per game.

Jordan Hall

Hall signed a contract with the Nets on Wednesday, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. Hall appeared in nine matchups with the Spurs during the 2022-23 campaign and averaged 3.1 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 8.8 minutes per game. He'll likely spend most of this season with the G League's Long Island Nets.
