Heat president Pat Riley says Chris Bosh's career with the Heat has likely ended, per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Per the newspaper: "I think Chris is still open-minded," Riley says. "But we are not working toward his return. We feel that, based on the last exam, that his Heat career is probably over." (Full report.)

The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation into allegations against Bulls guard Derrick Rose, per The White Bronco. The Nets have officially signed free agent small forward Chase Budinger and free agent guard Jorge Gutierrez (Canton Charge), per the team. The Spurs have released their training camp roster. Nerlens Noel has a problem with the amount of big men the 76ers have on the roster, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. Per the newspaper: "I think it’s just silly… this situation that we are in now with three starting centers," Noel says. "With the departure of [former GM] Sam Hinkie, I would have figured that management would be able to get something done this summer. … I think something needs to happen." Clippers forward Paul Pierce will retire after the season, he writes in The Players' Tribune.

Per the Arizona Republic: "The Suns announced four training-camp additions Sunday, including a new name in 19-year-old Congo native Gracin Bakumanya. He will join two other previously divulged undrafted rookies, Tulsa point guard Shaquille Harrison and UNLV forward Derrick Jones Jr., and returning D-League player Derek Cooke for this week’s Suns training camp in Flagstaff and at least part of the October preseason."

Per CBS Sports: "Kevin Durant, on Nike's influence on his decision to join Warriors: 'I didn’t let them know what I was doing until I did it.'"
