News: The Dallas Mavericks have reached a deal with Aminu after scrapping a contract with Rashard Lewis. Aminu signed a two-year contract for the veteran minimum of $2.1 million, with a player option on the second season.
Impact: Aminu has career averages of 6.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans. His best year was with the Pelicans in 2012-13, when he averaged career highs of 7.3 points and 7.7 rebounds.

News: Withey averaged 7.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks in five games at the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Withey didn't dominate, but he was serviceable as the Pelicans' starting center in summer league play. The addition of Omer Asik certainly means he'll be playing in a reserve role, but it's possible he could earn some consistent time off the bench in his sophomore season if he continues to improve and bulk up.

News: Withey contributed eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, and three blocks in 25 minutes during the Pelicans' 83-81 win versus the NBA D-League Select squad on Friday.
Impact: Withey started at center, and on top of nearly notching a double-double he also made his presence felt on the defensive end with two steals and three blocks. Expect him to continue to see sufficient time going forward in the summer league as he looks to improve heading into his sophomore season.
