  • Report: Noah, Knicks share mutual interest
    The Knicks and Joakim Noah have a mutual interest in one another, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

    Advice: Noah and New York flirting with one another is the worst kept non-secret of the NBA offseason so far, so expect the reports to continue flowing until a resolution comes to light. Per Berman, the Knicks have a "very high interest" in Noah, while Joakim is "eager for at least a sitdown with the Knicks." At this point, it appears Phil Jackson's new-look starting five could very well include Noah as Robin Lopez's replacement. Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago
  • Pressey expected to play w/ DET summer league
    Phil Pressey is expected to play for Detroit's summer league team.

    Advice: Pressey had been playing in the D-League to close out the 2015-16 season, and while his lack of size is always going to be an issue, he'll try to get at least a training camp invite with a strong showing this summer. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago
  • Bachynski to play w/ Pistons summer league
    Jordan Bachynski is expected to play on Detroit's summer league team.

    Advice: Bachynski was waived by the Pistons just before the 2015-16 campaign began, but it's possible he'll be able to stick around this time as a cheap insurance policy. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago
  • Report: DET likely to move on from J. Anthony
    The Pistons are not expected to pick up the $2.5 million option on Joel Anthony's contract for the 2016-17 season, according to Keith Langlois of NBA.com

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy did not mention Anthony by name when recently discussing the upcoming season, so Langlois took that as evidence that the big man is unlikely to return. Detroit already has Andre Drummond, Aron Baynes and the recently acquired Cameron Bairstow at center, so Anthony as an insurance policy is probably no longer necessary. For what it's worth, SVG added that he'd like to acquire two additional big men during the offseason. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago
  • SVG: Baynes & Drummond could play together
    Stan Van Gundy said the Pistons could play Aron Baynes and Andre Drummond together.

    Advice: "You saw Oklahoma City play a lot with two centers," he said. "They’re playing [Steven] Adams and [Enes] Kanter together. I think we can do that with Andre [Drummond] and Aron [Baynes]." We wouldn't expect the pairing for long stretches if Van Gundy commits to it all, especially with Tobias Harris penciled in as the starting four and Marcus Morris in the fold. Furthermore, SVG plans to pursue one additional power forward in free agency. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago
  • Report: Kevin Durant to meet w/ MIA, LAC, BOS
    Kevin Durant has added free agent meetings with the Heat, Clippers and Celtics to his agenda, a source told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

    Advice: The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski previously reported that KD's reps were working to secure meetings with all three aforementioned teams, so this isn't a big surprise. In addition to Miami, Los Angeles and Boston, Durant is already known to be meeting with Golden State, San Antonio and Oklahoma City. Per Broussard, Durant is "considering meeting with the New York Knicks, but has no plans to talk to his hometown Washington Wizards." The Los Angeles Lakers are not expected to receive a meeting with KD, either. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 am
  • Rajon Rondo: Kings had too much 'tension'
    Rajon Rondo said the 2015-16 Kings had "too many distractions on and off the court."

    Advice: Talk about stating the obvious, are we right? Rondo didn't stop there, either. "The organization as a whole, I don't think was together completely. I think as a team you have to want the best for the next man beside you, and that wasn't the case with the Sacramento Kings," he said. Specifically of the relationship between DeMarcus Cousins and George Karl, Rondo said that there was "too much tension. I've never witnessed or experienced a thing like that in my 10-year career." Despite all of this, Rondo remains open to re-signing with the Kings in free agency. Reading between the lines, it seems like the interest between the two sides of a reunion is tepid at best.

  • Report: Courtney Lee asking for $14M annually
    Courtney Lee is looking for $14 million per season on his next contract, according to KSTP's Darren Wolfson.

    Advice: That seems like a big number for Lee, but all asking prices will be inflated given where the NBA's salary cap is headed. It's certainly conceivable—and quite likely—that Lee fetches a double-digit number on an annual basis, and a potential bidding war could certainly drive Lee's price up to or beyond his reported asking price.

  • Team USA roster announced for 2016 Olympics
    The Team USA roster for the 2016 Olympics has been officially unveiled.

    Advice: Joining Kevin Durant will be Jimmy Butler, DeAndre Jordan, Kyle Lowry, Harrison Barnes, DeMar DeRozan, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Paul George, Draymond Green and Carmelo Anthony. Despite a handful of notable players passing on the opportunity to represent their country, Team USA's roster remains strong and should be considered a clear favorite this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 am
  • Report: Pacers hopeful to extend Jeff Teague
    The Pacers traded for Jeff Teague with the intention of signing him to a long-term contract extension, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: It makes plenty of sense with Teague entering the final year of his current deal. It's unclear when negotiations may take place or what Teague could command, but Woj reports that Teague was "eager" to be moved and is "thrilled" to land with the Pacers. The veteran PG should receive the bulk of the playing time at his position, but his fantasy appeal isn't as attractive on the surface as it was during his Atlanta tenure. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:19 am
  • Report: Hawks, Schroder to talk extension
    The Hawks are "planning to negotiate" a potential contract extension with Dennis Schroder, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: With Jeff Teague having been moved to the Pacers, the runway is clear for Dennis "The Jet" Schroder to take off. In other words: Nintendo DS is about to be lit. Schroder has no real current competition for playing time at the position, though Atlanta should be expected to sign a veteran backup to serve behind their new starter. Schroder is a per-minute monster, averaging 19.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.7 3PM and 4.1 turnovers per 36 minutes during the 2015-16 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:08 am
  • Report: Belinelli suffers jaw bone fracture
    Marco Belinelli has suffered a fracture of his jaw bone, according to Sportando.

    Advice: The report also states that Belinelli is expected to join training camp for the national team on Tuesday, so it's unclear how long he may be sidelined. After the Hornets just surprisingly traded the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft in exchange for Belinelli's services, Charlotte has to be hopeful this injury doesn't have a long-term impact. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:05 am
  • No meeting set between Kevin Durant & Knicks
    Kevin Durant has not scheduled or agreed to a meeting with the Knicks, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

    Advice: The Knicks are "optimistic" that they'll get a chance to meet with Durant, but so far his only proposed sit-downs are with the Thunder, Warriors, Heat, Clippers, Celtics and Spurs. Whether or not the Knicks ultimately secure a meeting with Durant, they're an extreme long-shot to sign the summer's most coveted free agent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 pm
  • Report: Joakim Noah doubtful to stay w/ Bulls
    Joakim Noah isn't interested in re-signing with the Bulls, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Advice: According to the report, Noah has "no trust in the direction of the [Bulls'] front office," and his priorities are being on a winning team, having the opportunity to start and finish games, and finding a franchise that will support his charity work with the Noah's Arc Foundation. The 31-year-old center will have plenty of suitors this summer but fantasy owners should be wary of him following two disappointing, injury-riddled seasons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:21 pm
  • GM: Giannis Antetokounmpo won't defend PGs
    Bucks GM John Hammond said that Giannis Antetokounmpo will be "one of the [Bucks'] primary ball-handlers" this season, but he's unlikely to defend opposing point guards.

    Advice: "There's a delicate balance," Hammond said. "Someone's gotta guard the point guard, and that's not gonna be Giannis." He went on to praise Michael Carter-Williams' defense, citing his length, speed and quickness, but all signs point to MCW coming off the bench to begin the season. No matter who he's guarding on the court, Antetokounmpo is poised for a monster fantasy campaign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:54 pm
  • Jeremy Lin 'open' to a return to the Knicks
    Jeremy Lin said that he's "open" to returning to the Knicks, although he doesn't feel it's very likely that it will happen.

    Advice: "It’s not looking likely, because they just traded for Derrick Rose," Lin said. "But I will say, ever since I left I’ve been open to going back, and I still am. Never say never. That’s the one thing in the NBA. Never say never. So I’ve always been open, but right now, I’m not sure it’s the best timing." Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but the Knicks wouldn't be a great fit, particularly with playing time being one of the more important things for him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:18 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (eye) requires hospital visit
    Marco Belinelli went to the hospital after being hit in the left eye during an exhibition game for Team Italy on Sunday.

    Advice: Currently there aren't any additional details regarding Belinelli's eye, although a hospital visit indicates that he could be dealing with a significant injury. A worst-case scenario here would likely be an orbital fracture, and while that would likely force Belinelli out of the Olympics, he'd still have plenty of time to recover for the 2016-17 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Grizzlies claim Tony Wroten off waivers
    The Grizzlies have claimed G Tony Wroten off waivers.

    Advice: Wroten will be returning to the team that drafted him, and things have reportedly been going well in his recovery from a partially torn ACL. It's unlikely that Wroten can establish himself as a standard league asset during the 2016-17 season. The Wroten signing could spell the end of Xavier Munford's time in Memphis.

  • Marco Belinelli (eye) exits exhibition game
    Marco Belinelli was forced to exit Sunday's exhibition game between Team Canada and Team Italy after suffering an apparent left eye injury.

    Advice: Belinelli not returning to the court for an exhibition game doesn't mean much, and there's really no way this injury will impact his status for the 2016-17 season. Belinelli is going to be a backup in Charlotte, so he won't be worth drafting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • GS & MIA most likely landing spots for KD?
    Golden State and Miami will be the most likely landing spots for Kevin Durant should he choose to leave Oklahoma City as a free agent, according to an agent speaking on the condition of anonymity.

    Advice: "Golden State and Miami become the only real players," the agent said. "It's too hard to justify a move to Los Angeles [Lakers] or New York because they are not close to winning. Houston's out." To be clear, this is just the viewpoint of another agent in the NBA, and this agent does not have any direct knowledge regarding Durant's decision making. That being said, the logic here is sound, as it wouldn't make much sense for KD to opt to go through a rebuild at age-27 having never won a championship. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:00 pm
  • John Wall (knees) says he's ahead of schedule
    John Wall said that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgeries to his left and right knee, and he expects to be able to run at full speed by the end of July.

    Advice: "This week I can start doing a little bit of running, like jogging and stuff like that," said Wall. "Probably not until the end of July I can really start having full out sprints and stuff. Start really working out. I can start doing basketball drills and stuff like that. I can stand up now. I just can’t change directions and cut." Wall is on track to be ready for training camp, although he's made it clear that he will not rush his recovery. Either way, he should be good to go when the 2016-17 season kicks off, and he'll be worth an early-round selection on draft day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 am
  • Murder charges against Eric Griffin dropped
    The attempted murder charges against Eric Griffin have been dropped.

    Advice: Griffin was falsely accused and has now been vindicated and he's eager to put this whole mess behind him. He's been trying to make an NBA squad since 2012, but has never hung on past training camp. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:24 am
  • Looney hopes to be ready for training camp
    The goal for Kevon Looney (hip surgery) is to be ready in time for training camp.

    Advice: He won't play in the summer league, but this report means he could be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season. He had surgery back in April and was given a 4-6 month timetable, but it sounds like he's progressing well. It's too early to tell if Looney will have a chance to crack the rotation next season, as the Warriors are going to be very aggressive in free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 am
  • Vlade Divac open to re-signing Rondo
    Kings GM Vlade Divac said that he's open to the idea of re-signing Rajon Rondo this summer.

    Advice: The Kings may not have a choice with Darren Collison in legal trouble. They didn't add a guard in the first round of the draft and there aren't many good options at point guard in free agency apart from Mike Conley. Marc Stein of ESPN reported that Rondo has interest in re-signing with the Kings or playing for the Brooklyn Nets, so this could turn into a bidding war. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 am
  • Trey Lyles will play in the summer league
    Trey Lyles will play in the summer league.

    Advice: He showed some serious skill after the All-Star break and finished the season on a high note, averaging 12.9 points, 5.4 points, 1.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.6 treys through seven appearances in April. Trevor Booker is a free agent, so Lyles will likely be the first big off Utah's bench next season. He's firmly on the radar in standard leagues and should already be owned in dynasty formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 am
  • James Young likely to play in summer league
    James Young is expected to play in the summer league.

    Advice: His roster spot with the Celtics is in jeopardy because he hasn't improved much since joining the NBA, so this a huge summer for Young. The Celtics drafted Jaylen Brown with the third pick, so the path to minutes on the wings just got even more difficult for Young. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 am
  • Jazz might move Shelvin Mack?
    The Jazz might look to trade Shelvin Mack, Trey Burke and/or Raul Neto this summer.

    Advice: The Jazz have a serious logjam at point guard and this report makes sense because George Hill and Dante Exum (knee) will likely get the bulk of the PG minutes. The Jazz are still expected to exercise their player option on Mack for the 2016-17 season, but Mack likely has more trade value than both Burke and Neto. It's tough to imagine Mack having fantasy value if he stays in Utah. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:23 am
  • Alec Burks expected to be ready for camp
    Alec Burks (knee, ankle) is expected to be healthy for training camp.

    Advice: He had arthroscopic surgery to clean out debris in his left knee and ankle in early June, but it was said to be a minor procedure. Burks has had some tough luck with injuries in his career, and the addition of George Hill and return of Dante Exum (knee) from injury means that his minutes could take a hit next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 am
  • Kevin Durant to also meet with Knicks?
    The Knicks are expected to get an opportunity to sit down with Kevin Durant.

    Advice: The Lakers and Wizards have reportedly been crossed off Durant's list, but the Knicks' chances of signing him are still slim to none. The Thunder are still said to be the favorites to re-sign him, with the Warriors and Spurs next in line. In addition to those teams, the Clippers, Celtics and Heat are also expected to meet with Durant. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:11 am
  • Report: Joakim Noah is the Knicks' top target
    According to the New York Post, Joakim Noah is the Knicks' top target in free agency.

    Advice: We already know that Derrick Rose is going to recruit him, and New York obviously needs a starting center after trading away Robin Lopez to the Bulls. Noah has also been linked to the Wolves, but the Knicks have plenty of cap space and it sounds like they are going to aggressively pursue him on July 1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 am
  • Bulls might look to trade Taj Gibson?
    According to ESPN's Nick Friedell, Taj Gibson could be traded in the coming weeks.

    Advice: With the Bulls rebuilding, this isn't a surprise and it's no secret that Chicago has listened to offers for Gibson in the past. He has just one year left on his deal that will pay him nearly $9 million, but he should have some value around the league. If the Bulls end up trading him, Bobby Portis' fantasy value would get a bump along with Nikola Mirotic. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:43 am
  • Olivier Hanlan will play in summer league
    Olivier Hanlan will play for the Jazz during the summer league.

    Advice: The former second round pick has one year left on his deal with Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania, but the Jazz will be able to see how much his game has developed during the summer league. The Jazz have plenty of depth at guard anyways, so Hanlan is not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:36 am
  • Motiejunas says back still isn't 100 percent
    Donatas Motiejunas said he likely won't play for Lithuania in the Olympics because his back still isn't 100 percent.

    Advice: "The specialists told me that it is necessary to strengthen it and I have to make specific exercises," Motiejunas said. "I still hope to play for Lithuania but I am aware that I may not play for the National Team." His back has been a major red flag for a while now and it's not a great sign that it's still bothering him two months after the Rockets' season ended. If anything, the durability issues should keep his price down as he enters restricted free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:01 am
  • Gar Forman says Bulls are high on Grant
    Bulls GM Gar Forman said that the franchise is high on Jerian Grant.

    Advice: A report by the Chicago Tribune indicated that Jose Calderon will likely be the penciled-in starter, but Grant should be able to at least compete for the starting job. He didn't get much of a chance in New York, but Grant has a great opportunity in front of him with the Bulls rebuilding for the future. He will play in the summer league, but he will need to have a dominant performance to emerge on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:52 am
  • Kings linked to UFA Courtney Lee
    The Kings are interested in free agent shooting guard Courtney Lee according to Kings Insider James Ham.

    Advice: The Kings could use an upgrade at shooting guard and Ben McLemore is rumored to be available in trade talks, so Lee would make sense. Coach Dave Joerger is said to be a fan of Lee and obviously coached him in Memphis, but it's unclear if the interest is mutual. The Hornets traded for Marco Belinelli which might mean they're preparing to lose Lee in free agency, as he will reportedly demand around $10 million per season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:37 am
  • Lakers, Wizards not likely to meet with KD
    The Wizards and Lakers are not expected to land a meeting with Kevin Durant, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Advice: Amick adds the Lakers "have a way of at least getting a meeting" based on their past, but it's not looking good. Both the Lakers and Wizards have spent some time hoping they would be able to land the former MVP, but at least now they can focus on other players and possibly make some signings while KD is making up his mind. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:31 pm
  • Woj: BOS, LAC & MIA could get KD meetings
    Kevin Durant’s representatives "are working to solidify invitations" with the Celtics, Warriors, Clippers, Heat, Spurs and Thunder, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: According to the report, the meetings are expected to take place in New York, but teams are still awaiting on the specific location. Wojnarowski adds the Thunder are still the frontrunners for a one-plus-one-year deal to allow Durant to hit free agency for the big salary cap rise in 2017. Wojnarowski also said the Warriors "have Durant's attention." Lastly, the report adds Durant is expected to take a tour to the Far East on July 9 and should have a decision before then. OK, everybody got that? Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:24 pm
  • ESPN: OKC, GSW & SA get first crack at Durant
    The Warriors, Spurs and Thunder are the first three known teams to have recruiting meetings with Kevin Durant, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: It's going to be very interesting to see how Durant reacts to the Serge Ibaka trade. If he stays with OKC, he'll certainly be playing a lot more power forward. The Warriors and Spurs both can clear out some money to bring on Durant, especially with the salary cap rising to $94 million next year. Get ready for a lot of rumors. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Wizards will not offer Noah a max deal
    The Wizards will not offer Joakim Noah a max contract, according to J. Michael of CSN.

    Advice: There was an earlier report today saying the Wizards were considering it, but it didn't make sense given their roster and the market value of Noah. The Wizards will likely look for a cheaper backup behind Marcin Gortat. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:42 pm
  • Derrick Rose wants to play with Joakim Noah
    Derrick Rose said he wants to play with Joakim Noah.

    Advice: "I want him," Rose said. "He knows that. I think his family knows that. I think everyone knows that." This isn't exactly a secret and the Knicks may have been after Noah even before the Rose deal. Plus, losing Robin Lopez makes getting a center a top priority for them. There is a report of the Wizards in on Noah, but they don't need him nearly as much as the Knicks do. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:24 pm
  • Report: Rondo interested in Kings and Nets
    Rajon Rondo has interest in re-signing with the Kings or playing for the Brooklyn Nets, a source told ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: Per Spears, Rondo also had some interest in joining the New York Knicks, but the Derrick Rose acquisition kills that potential suitor. Regardless of where Rondo signs his next contract, he's likely going to have to take another "prove it" kind of deal like the one-year contract he signed prior to the 2015-16 season with Sacramento. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:09 pm
  • Kings trade Marco Belinelli to CHA for No. 22
    The Kings are trading Marco Belinelli to Charlotte for the No. 22 pick in the 2016 draft.

    Advice: Belinelli took a public swipe at the Kings in May, saying that he wants to win now, and "to make that happen, something has to happen." It's a fine haul for the Kings, who open up more minutes for Ben McLemore and Seth Curry, while acquiring a valuable pick, but Charlotte's reasoning isn't as clear. Belinelli is owed a guaranteed $12.9 million over the next two seasons and could claim a significant role in Charlotte's backcourt, but he's a very dubious fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:52 pm
  • Jerian Grant to play in Summer League
    Jerian Grant will play in Summer League for the Bulls next month.

    Advice: He wasn't very good at Summer League last year and struggled in his rookie season. Grant has the inside track to be the team's starting point guard and he should have a ton of responsibility in Vegas. He'll really need to show some improvement to warrant anything more than a late-round pick in standard drafts. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • Report: Knicks will pursue Kevin Durant as FA
    Phil Jackson reportedly told Derrick Rose that the team will go after Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: It's a tough sell for Jackson, as he'll be asking Durant to leave a team that was one win away from an NBA Finals berth for a club that has failed to make the postseason for three years running, but hey, it doesn't hurt to try. There will be roughly 28 other teams vying for Durant's services this summer, but most signs point to him remaining with OKC, at least on a two-year deal with an opt out on Year-2. The Dubs are also rumored to be a realistic landing spot should KD leave OKC. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:55 am
  • Knicks may make a run at Joakim Noah
    There are members of the Knicks organization who would like to sign Joakim Noah, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: Noah should receive some interest as an unrestricted free agent now that he's recovered from a shoulder tear and would make a lot of sense for the Knicks. The 31-year-old's best days are behind him, but he's just two years removed from winning a Defensive Player of the Year Award and will be worth a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 am
  • Jeremy Lin opts for unrestricted free agency
    Jeremy Lin declined to pick up his player option for 2016-17, making him an unrestricted free agent as of July 1.

    Advice: It was already reported that Lin would opt for free agency, so this merely confirms his decision. Addressing his priorities as a free agent earlier this month, Lin said, "To be happy, I need to consider a few things. Of course I am going to consider who is coaching the team, the team’s style, the players on the team and their chance of winning, as well as the on-court time I have and if I have a chance to start." A starting job might be feasible but there are copious teams in need of backcourt depth, so Lin should have no lack of suitors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 pm
  • Knicks waive Tony Wroten
    Knicks waive G Tony Wroten.

    Advice: Wroten is extremely athletic and is a very highly-used player, but the turnovers and bad shots are tough for him to overcome. He'll likely get a camp invite somewhere, but he's no lock to make an NBA roster next year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:06 pm

  • Jerian Grant traded to Bulls in 5-player deal
    Jerian Grant has been traded to the Bulls as part of Wednesday's five-player deal with the Knicks.

    Advice: Grant's fantasy value hinges upon what the Bulls' backcourt looks like on opening night -- as of now he faces competition from Spencer Dinwiddie and Jose Calderon. Grant averaged 5.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals in just 16.6 minutes per game as a rookie, but he'll need to improve his 39.4 percent shooting to emerge as a fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:25 pm
  • Schroder Time: Dennis set for big bump in PT
    Dennis Schroder is expected to see a big bump in playing time with Jeff Teague traded to the Pacers.

    Advice: With Teague gone and the Hawks only getting the No. 12 pick back, Schroder should be looking at minutes in the upper 30s. Plus, this move makes it slightly less likely Al Horford is returning. Schroder put up a 31.6 usage rate in the postseason and was heavily involved while he was out there. In his six starts during the season, Schroder averaged 13.7 points, 3.8 boards, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. He's not a great shooter, but Schroder should post huge stats for DFS and points leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:37 am
  • Woj: Hawks trade Jeff Teague to Indiana
    The Hawks are sending guard Jeff Teague to the Pacers as part of a three-way deal.

    Advice: Here we go. The Hawks are getting back Utah's No. 12 pick and George Hill is headed to Utah. The Pacers now get a guard who is more capable on the ball. Teague's role should be diminished next to Paul George, so his overall output won't be as attractive. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:22 am
  • Warriors still hoping to land Kevin Durant
    The Warriors are reportedly going to make Kevin Durant their top offseason priority this summer.

    Advice: It would be a surprise to see Durant pass up millions by not re-signing with Oklahoma City, though the Warriors may represent the best shot at a title for the 27-year-old. While the Warriors will have plenty of company as they vie for Durant's services, we'll keep a close eye on this situation as Golden State's pitch to Durant could prove too tempting to pass up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:17 am
  • Rajon Rondo says that he is 'very healthy'
    In an interview with the Boston Globe, Rajon Rondo said that he is "very healthy."

    Advice: "Obviously it didn’t go the way we wanted it as an exit [missing the playoffs] but I was able to bounce back, I believe," Rondo said. "I am very healthy. I’ve been working extremely hard on my body and my game. I’m 30 years old and I feel great." Rondo battled through several different injuries down the stretch of the season and he did pick up some DNPs, but it's worth noting that the Kings were also tanking a little bit. Several teams around the NBA could use an upgrade at point guard, so Rondo should have a decent market in free agency. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 7:55 am
  • Report: Hawks will try to move up in draft
    Hawks GM Wes Wilcox hinted that he will try to move up in the NBA Draft.

    Advice: The Hawks have three selections in Nos. 21, 44 and No. 54, but they could also include Jeff Teague in a package in order to move up even higher. "It’s always important to have multiple picks because it gives you the opportunity to explore trades that may take you higher in the draft," Wilcox said.
