Dirk Nowitzki scores 15 points for Germany 09-05-2015
Dirk Nowitzki F DAL
Dirk Nowitzki scored 15 points with seven boards in Germany's win over Iceland. Nowitzki will play a total of five games in the next six days, so Mavs fans will just be hoping that he is able to stay healthy. Nowitzki is now 37 years old and will probably see a reduced role on the Mavs next season, so fantasy owners should hope that he falls in drafts before spending a mid-round pick on him.
Dennis Schroder leads Germany in win 09-05-2015
Dennis Schroeder G ATL
Dennis Schroder was solid in Germany's win over Iceland, scoring 15 points with six boards, four assists and one 3-pointer. It was a solid start to Eurobasket for the young guard, and he is clearly the best player on the squad apart from Dirk Nowitzki. Schroder will be stuck behind Jeff Teague in Atlanta once again this season, but we might see him more in two-PG lineups. There is no reason to draft him in standard leagues while Teague is healthy, but Schroder is on the radar in deeper formats.

Tony Parker said that he is motivated to play for France during Eurobasket.

"My idol was Michael Jordan," Parker said. "He was always motivated to get better. Lots of people have asked me, 'Tony, why do you continue to play for the French national team? There's nothing to prove.' But I'm motivated, to play as long as possible, to use my talents for as long as possible and to push my limits." Parker is expected to retire from the French national team after the 2016 olympics, so hopefully that will extend his career with the Spurs.

Casper Ware G BKN
Casper Ware has agreed to play for Tianjin Steel in China.

David Pick on Twitter
Ware made nine appearances for the 76ers during the 2013-14 season, but his impact was minimal at best. Ware can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
A.J. Price to sign in China 09-05-2015
A.J. Price G PHO
A.J. Price is finalizing a deal to play for Shanghai Sharks in China.

David Pick on Twitter
Price had brief stints with the Cavaliers, Pacers and Suns last season, but he never had more than a limited role off the bench. We will let you know if he pops up on the radar of an NBA team.
Nate Robinson mulling offer from overseas 09-05-2015
Nate Robinson G LAC
Nate Robinson is mulling an offer from Sichuan Blue Wales in China.

David Pick on Twitter
Robinson played in 34 games for the Nuggets and nine for the Clippers last season, but he saw less than 15 minutes per game at both clubs. It's not a shock that he hasn't received a lot of interest from NBA teams, but we will let you know if he decides to play in China.
Jeff Ayres signs in China 09-05-2015
Jeff Pendergraph F SA
Jeff Ayres signed a one-year deal to play in China.

David Pick on Twitter
Ayres averaged just 7.5 minutes per game in 51 appearances for the Spurs last season, so his absence won't have any fantasy implications. We will be tracking his progress overseas, but it's safe to ignore him in all fantasy leagues.
