Friday And-1 links: Another report Brandon Roy looks good

Timberwolves Roy Basketball

Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Packers fans like bratwurst.

• We are in the “everyone looks good working out” portion of the summer, so take all those reports with a grain of salt. But hey, Brandon Roy looks good working out.

• Good read for Jazz fans as the Salt Lake Tribune caught up with Tyrone Corbin.

The Pacers signed Sam Young, Sundiata Gaines and Blake Ahearn to contracts. Those are likely make-good contracts but they might have a real shot at the roster.

• The Timberwolves were “encouraged” by Hassan Whiteside’s workout. Don’t confuse that with them offering him a deal, however.

• The Hawks have signed second round pick forward Mike Scott. GM Danny Ferry said he is going to make the roster this season.

• The Heat are bringing in Mickell Gladness and Jarvis Varnado to training camp on make good contracts. Which means they are basically camp foder.

• The Nets are going to bring in Dominic McGuire and Josh Childress will work out for them next week.

• Chris Wright will get a make-good camp invite from the Raptors.

• The Nuggets have another free agent they may want to deal with and lock down before next summer — GM Masai Ujiri.

• Javaris Crittendon has been charged with murder and is almost out of the NBA, but he’s still all over TMZ.

• The more I read about how Mike Gillispie treated people and players at Texas Tech, the more I am sickened. Some people just don’t know how to handle power and feel the need to demonstrate it all the time. Just to show they have it.
