    Clingan will be shut down for the final game of Summer League and shift his focus to the regular season.

The 20-year-old flashed some of the rim protection and athleticism in Las Vegas that coaxed the Pelicans into selecting him with the 21st overall pick in this year's draft.

    Jovic (ankle) posted 10 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and four rebounds in 11 minutes during Serbia's 94-72 exhibition win over Greece on Monday.

    Jovic sprained his ankle in mid-June, and there were conflicting reports about his availability ahead of the Paris Olympics. It looks like the 21-year-old forward is still working his way back to full strength, evidenced by playing only 11 minutes versus Greece, but he has appeared in back-to-back exhibitions. Jovic should be available for Serbia's showdown against Team USA on July 28, the first game of the Olympics for both squads.

    The Raptors waived Vezenkov on Monday, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Vezenkov was under contract for a guaranteed $6.66 million in 2024-25, but in an expected move, he'll give up his full salary for the upcoming season so that he can pursue an opportunity overseas in Greece, per Murphy. After winning EuroLeague MVP honors with Greek club Olympiacos in 2023, Vezenkov signed a two-year deal with the Kings last summer. The 28-year-old had a quiet rookie season with the Kings, averaging 5.4 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.2 minutes over 42 appearances.

    Javon Freeman-Liberty: Cut by Toronto

    The Raptors waived Freeman-Liberty on Monday, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Only $100,000 of Freeman-Liberty's $1.89 million contract for the 2024-25 season was set to be fully guaranteed until Tuesday, so the Raptors will face limited financial ramifications by cutting him loose. Murphy relays that Freeman-Liberty is likely to receive interest from around the league as a two-way player, though he would first have to clear waivers before he's eligible to sign a new deal elsewhere. Freeman-Liberty spent the majority of the 2023-24 season as one of the Raptors' two-way players, appearing in 22 games at the NBA level while averaging 7.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18.3 minutes per contest.

    Fortunately for Exum, scans on his finger revealed no fractures, and the expectation is that the 29-year-old will be ready to go for Australian's 2024 Summer Olympics opening game against Spain on Saturday. Assuming Exum is able to play Saturday and experiences no setbacks during Australia's run during the Olympics, he shouldn't face any restrictions when he rejoins the Mavericks for the start of training camp in the fall.
