Minnesota may not win many games next season without Kevin Love on its roster, but by adding Philadelphia to the deal and landing Thaddeus Young without giving up Anthony Bennett, the Timberwolves have no shortage of talent. Still, we're talking about a team projected by the ESPN Forecast panel to finish near the very bottom of the Western Conference in 2014-15.

Around this time last season, in the months leading up to Jahii Carson's sophomore season at Arizona State, the high-scoring point guard was regarded by many as a mid-to late-first-round pick in the 2014 NBA draft.

Fast forward a year later, and Carson is without an NBA team, going undrafted despite a solid second season with the Sun Devils. So where will he begin his professional career? On Thursday, we found out.

Unless something dramatically changes between the Phoenix Suns and Eric Bledsoe, the point guard won't be with the team for the long-term. Bledsoe reportedly feels disrespected because the Suns have only offered him $48 million over four years. As a result, he might sign the qualifying offer, which will make him an unrestricted free agent in 2015.

With that in mind, Bright Side of the Sun transcribed an interview from a local radio station in which the guest claims the Suns are now looking for sign-and-trade deals to ensure they get something for Bledsoe.

All 30 NBA teams will spend the next five weeks inviting players to training camp, and while some might get a small amount of guaranteed money, most will sign deals with no salary protection. Almost all of the camp invitees will be waived at some point during the preseason and, for those with less than three years of NBA experience, they may not be released until just prior to the start of the 2014-15 regular season, so teams can designate them to their D-League rosters.

The Memphis Grizzlies signed Jarnell Stokes, the No. 35 selection in the 2014 NBA draft, to a three-year contract on Monday. With that transaction the Grizzlies likely already have their team set for the start of the 2014-15 regular season.

The Grizzlies now have 15 players under contract and while Memphis could add another five to its preseason roster, none of them will make the regular season team as the 15 currently signed to deals have full salary protection for 2014-15.

With that in mind, the following will likely be Memphis' depth chart once the regular season tips off in late October:
