Western Notes: Wiseman, Lundberg, Dorsey, Brunson, Tampering

July 4th 2022 at 5:28pm CST by Dana Gauruder

Warriors center James Wiseman remains on track to play in the Las Vegas summer league, Anthony Slater of The Athletic tweet. He played 5-on-5 full contact on Sunday for the first time since he had a setback in his right knee rehab late in the regular season. The No. 2 pick of the 2020 draft missed all of last season.

We have more from the Western Conference:

  • Gabriel Lundberg is not on the Sun’s summer league roster and he could be on the move, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic tweet. Lundberg, who signed a two-way contract with Phoenix in March and appeared in four regular season games, has a possible deal overseas, Rankin hears. Lundberg left CSKA Moscow after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
  • Tyler Dorsey had a private workout with the Mavericks on Sunday, Krysten Peek of Yahoo Sports tweet. Dorsey appeared in a combined 104 regular season games for Atlanta and Memphis from 2017-19. He played for Olympiacos (Greece) last season and was his second-leading scorer.
  • Will the Knicks be penalized for tamping after securing a commitment from Mavericks free agent guard Jalen Brunson? Fred Katz and Tim Cato of The Athletic tackle that subject, with Katz hearing that there’s an expectation around the league that the Knicks will get charged with tampering, unless they work out a sign-and-trade with Dallas. Katz notes that New York started dumping salary on draft night and continued to do so amid reports prior to the start of free agency that Brunson was going to the Knicks.
