- The Knicks showed some interest signing free agent center Jason Collins, but in the end decided to go with younger talent, like Cole Aldrich and Jeremy Tyler, tweets ESPNNY.com's Ian Begley.
- Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com spoke to Brandon Williams, the new GM of the Sixers' D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers. Williams, who spent time in the D-League himself before earning a spot on a championship team in San Antonio, hopes to convey to young players that the league should be viewed not as a demotion, but as a place to improve their game.
- Nets general manager Billy King declared this upcoming season to be his roster's championship window, according to ESPNNY.com's Ohm Youngmisuk.
