Skylar Mays

Mays signed a two-way deal with the Trail Blazers on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN relays. Mays popped for 15.3 points and 8.3 assists in six appearances with Portland last season after initially signing a 10-day deal in March. The 26-year-old averaged 14.1 points and 5.1 assists across 29 G League contests in 2022-23 as well. With Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons and Shaedon Sharpe already slated for ballhandling duties, the addition of Mays should more so secure a bonafide facilitator for Portland's G League affiliate.

Daniel Gafford

Gafford sustained an elbow injury during a recent pickup game and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. Gafford reportedly took a hard fall during a recent pickup game and landed on his elbow. While the exact diagnosis, or even which elbow it is, remains unknown, the belief is that the big man will be sidelined to start training camp, and he'll likely miss some preseason action. The goal, of course, is to have Gafford back for the Wizards' opener on Oct. 25 at Indiana. Gafford is projected to start at center for Washington -- a role he held for 47 of his 78 appearances a year ago.

Landry Shamet

Shamet sustained a broken big toe Sunday and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. It's unclear how Shamet suffered the injury, but it will cost him the start of training camp and will be something to monitor as the Wizards' Oct. 25 regular-season opener quickly approaches. Shamet, who came over from Phoenix as part of the Chris Paul trade, is expected to be in the mix for minutes at both guard spots off the bench.

Dejan Vasiljevic

Vasiljevic was waived by Washington on Sunday. Vasiljevic faced an uphill battle to make Washington's 15-man roster, but the Wizards still retain his G League rights. Washington will have the option to assign him to its G League affiliate if he's unclaimed by all other NBA teams. The 26-year-old played for Washington at 2023 Summer League as well.

Jules Bernard

Bernard signed a training camp contract with the Wizards on Sunday. Bernard's Exhibit-10 contract likely sets the stage for a return to Washington's G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go. The 23-year-old appeared in 32 games for the Go-Go last season, averaging 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 44.6 percent from the field.

Wenyen Gabriel

Gabriel and Boston agreed to a training camp contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Gabriel appeared in 68 games for the Lakers last season and will compete for a Celtics' roster spot for the upcoming campaign. With Robert Williams dealt to Portland, Gabriel currently profiles as a frontrunner to carve out a bench role in Boston's frontcourt. Luke Kornet and Neemias Queta represent competition.

Damion Lee

Lee suffered a right knee injury and will be out until further notice, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. Rankin relays that Lee is believed to have suffered a meniscus injury during a recent workout at the team's training facility. The severity remains unclear, but this is certainly an issue that could sideline him for the first few weeks of the regular season. Lee likely wasn't on fantasy radars anyway, but in his presumed absence, Grayson Allen, Eric Gordon and Jordan Goodwin are candidates for increased roles behind Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

Makur Maker

Maker signed a training camp contract with Toronto on Sunday. Maker appeared in 30 G League contests for Washington's affiliate last season, averaging 7.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting in 20.6 minutes per game. The 22-year-old spent Summer League with Philadelphia this offseason, and he will likely spend the 2023-24 season with the Raptors' G League affiliate.

Cameron Payne

Payne and Milwaukee agreed to a one-year deal on Sunday, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic. Payne joins the Bucks after being waived by San Antonio in September. The 29-year-old spent last season with Phoenix but was traded to the Spurs after the Suns acquired Bradley Beal. Payne averaged 10.3 points across 48 appearances last season, but he battled foot injuries throughout the campaign. Healthy throughout the offseason, Payne likely slots in as Damian Lillard's primary point guard back-up in Milwaukee.

Malcolm Brogdon

Brogdon was traded to Portland on Sunday as part of a package to bring Jrue Holiday to Boston, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Brogdon's tumultuous offseason with Boston officially ends with a departure. After nearly being dealt to the Clippers in Kristaps Porzingis talks, Brogdon ultimately gets sent to Portland -- and he will likely be on the move again. The Trail Blazers have expressed contentment with its current backcourt rotation, profiling the 30-year-old as another trade chip.

Jrue Holiday

Holiday was traded to the Celtics by the Trail Blazers on Sunday in exchange for Malcolm Brogdon, Robert Williams, a 2024 first-round pick and a 2029 unprotected first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. As expected, Holiday, who was traded to Portland by Milwaukee in exchange for Damian Lillard on Wednesday, has been shipped to a contender. In Boston, Holiday finds himself essentially replacing Marcus Smart, who was flipped for Kristaps Porzingis this offseason. The Celtics have been busy this offseason, revamping the assets around Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, and their rotation appears clustered at the moment. Derrick White, Al Horford, Holiday, Brown, Tatum and Porzingis would all be everyday starters on other teams, but one will have to settle for a sixth-man role to start 2023-24. Either way, those six players figure to be on the court as much as possible, though Tatum and Brown figure to dominate the playmaking opportunities. Holiday still has a high fantasy floor due to his defensive skills, but his offensive production may take a hit with the move.

Robert Williams

Williams was traded to Portland on Sunday as the centerpiece of a deal bringing Jrue Holiday to the Celtics, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Williams, Malcolm Brogdon and two first-round picks will head to Portland. It's a seismic shift for both teams, with Williams now set to form a timeshare with Deandre Ayton for the Trail Blazers.

Matthew Hurt

Hurt signed with Memphis on Saturday. Hurt will compete for a regular season roster spot after being a standout player for Memphis' G League affiliate last season. Hurt averaged 15.3 points and 4.3 rebounds on 59.5/39.3/72.2 percent shooting across 28 games with the Memphis Hustle in 2022-23.

Mychal Mulder

Mulder signed a training camp contract with Memphis on Saturday. Mulder will join the Grizzlies for training camp but will likely spend the 2023-24 campaign with the Memphis Hustle. The 29-year-old led all G League players with 129 made threes last season.
