  • Report: Knicks favored to sign FA Joakim Noah
    The Knicks are reportedly a "big favorite" to sign free agent Joakim Noah.

    Advice: According to ESPN's Marc Stein, multiple teams vying for Noah feel that he's likely to sign with the Knicks, and the Washington Post reports that he could earn approximately $18 million per season. New York is desperate for a starting-caliber center after trading away Robin Lopez in the deal for Derrick Rose, and Noah reportedly chafed in a reserve role for Chicago last season, so the pairing makes sense. From a fantasy perspective, the Knicks would be an ideal landing spot for Noah. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • James Michael McAdoo soon to be unrestricted
    James Michael McAdoo will be an unrestricted free agent after Golden State declined to make him a qualifying offer.

    Advice: McAdoo could latch on with another NBA team this summer but it's unlikely that he'll surface as a fantasy option no matter where he's playing. He averaged just 2.9 points in limited appearances last season and will need a strong offseason to make a regular-season roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:45 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic drops 35 pounds this offseason
    Jusuf Nurkic has already lost 35 pounds this offseason

    Advice: Wow. Nurkic added he's feeling stronger this summer thanks to the weight loss. If anything, the weight loss should help his durability, which has been his biggest concern. Nurkic was capable of playing big minutes even at his old playing weight with 39 minutes in the season finale. Given his usage and upside for blocks, Nurkic is going to be a popular target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:49 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky has successful surgery
    Frank Kaminsky underwent a successful procedure to repair a small pocket of air in his chest wall.

    Advice: He is expected to be sidelined for six weeks. Kaminsky won't be available for Summer League after his rookie season, which included averages of 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.1 minutes per game. He's only a late-round target in fantasy leagues next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:44 pm
  • Bucks request waivers on Inglis and O'Bryant
    The Bucks will waive Damien Inglis and Johnny O'Bryant.

    Advice: He showed signs of promise early on, but injuries and inconsistent play hurt Inglis big time. He will likely get a camp invite with another team. Inglis matched his career high in scoring with 10 points in his last game of the season, so he is going out on a high note. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:23 pm
  • Report: Charlotte extends QO to Troy Daniels
    The Hornets have extended a qualifying offer to Troy Daniels.

    Advice: Daniels will be a restricted free agent, and he'll likely see a slight pay increase with the salary cap spiked to $94 million. Daniels is capable of putting up the occasional high scoring outing, but he's not consistent enough to grab the attention of those in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:24 am
  • Report: BOS gives qualifying offer to Zeller
    The Celtics have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Tyler Zeller, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Zeller is woefully inconsistent, and it's tough to see him landing in a situation where he's not a backup. He won't be a realistic fantasy option in most settings, regardless of where he signs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 am
  • Report: Austin Rivers looking for a pay raise
    Austin Rivers is reportedly hoping to command an annual salary of $8 million as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: Rivers is going to really benefit from the salary cap increase, and he already has meetings lined up with the Clippers and several other teams, according to sources of Brad Turner. Rivers is a capable backup, but he's a non-factor in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Dellavedova will suit up for Team Australia
    Matthew Dellavedova will compete for Team Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Advice: "I'm 100 percent committed to Rio," Dellavedova said. Dellavedova is going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he's reportedly received interest from the Pistons and Bucks. He won't be a fantasy factor regardless of where he winds up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 am
  • Portland extends qualifying offer to Harkless
    Portland has extended a qualifying offer to Moe Harkless.

    Advice: Harkless will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but he's said that he would prefer to re-sign with the Trail Blazers as he "loved" playing for Terry Stotts. Harkless showed flashes during the 2015-16 season, but inconsistency remains an issue. It'll be interesting to see what kind of deal Harkless can command on the open market with the salary cap set to skyrocket to $94 million. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • POR gives qualifying offer to Meyers Leonard
    The Trail Blazers have extended a qualifying offer to Meyers Leonard.

    Advice: Leonard is currently recovering from shoulder surgery, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for training camp. After a disappointing 2015-16 campaign, it would be surprising to see another team try to steal Leonard away for Portland with a big-time offer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 am
  • Report: NYK will meet with Chandler Parsons
    The Knicks are reportedly likely to have a face-to-face meeting with unrestricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

    Advice: The Mavs have made Hassan Whiteside and Mike Conley their primary free agent targets, so they could potentially lose Parsons during the early goings of free agency. With Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis on the Knicks' roster, Parsons would be a rather strange fit, and it wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 am
  • Report: NY looking to upgrade the SG position
    The Knicks will reportedly look to upgrade the shooting guard position via free agency.

    Advice: Kent Bazemore, Bradley Beal, Courtney Lee and Kevin Martin are all reportedly on the Knicks' radar, with Bazemore being their first choice. Beal is will be a restricted free agent, and it doesn't seem likely that the Knicks will be able to lure him away from Washington, even if they come in with a max-deal. Lee and Martin are realistic targets, although they wouldn't have all that much value in New York fighting for touches with the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:15 am
  • Pelicans give qualifying offer to Tim Frazier
    The Pelicans have extended a qualifying offer to Tim Frazier.

    Advice: Frazier had an impressive run filling in as the starting point guard for New Orleans towards the end of the season when most of the team was injured, but he's not going to be able to replicate those numbers next season when everyone comes back healthy. New Orleans will have the ability to match any offer Frazier signs on the open market, and with how good of a fit he was with the Pelicans, it would be surprising to see them let him go. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:59 am
  • Report: 76ers interested in UFA Courtney Lee
    The 76ers are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee.

    Advice: Lee reportedly is more of a backup plan for the 76ers, but there's no indication that the feeling is mutual. While the 76ers could offer Lee a ton of money, it would be surprising to see him choose to join a team going through a rebuild at this stage in his career. The Kings are also said to be in the mix to sign Lee, but Lee's first choice would be to re-up with the Hornets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 am
  • Report: San Antonio will not waive Boris Diaw
    The Spurs reportedly intend to keep Boris Diaw on the roster.

    Advice: San Antonio could shave off $4 million off next year's payroll if they waived Diaw, but that is not something the organization is interested in doing. Diaw is only someone to look at in DFS on the days the Spurs rest their studs, but he's a non-option in most season-long settings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:37 am
  • Frank Kaminsky set to undergo minor procedure
    Frank Kaminsky (chest) will undergo a minor procedure to repair a small pocket of air in his chest wall.

    Advice: Kaminsky's recovery time is expected to be six weeks, which means he'll miss playing in Summer League. Frank the Tank averaged 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.1 minutes per game during his rookie season, but is morem of a late-round pick in fantasy drafts as he doesn't have a ton of upside. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:35 am
  • 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 Monday, 7:27 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:43 am
  • 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 Sunday, 8:21 pm
  • 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 Sunday, 7:57 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 Sunday, 6:37 am
  • 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
  • Kaminsky may not play much in Summer League
    Frank Kaminsky will be on the Summer League roster, but is not expected to play in many games.

    Advice: The Hornets didn't really add any depth at power forward in the draft, so Kaminsky's minutes are safe. He looked good in Summer League last year, so he doesn't really have much to prove. He's not a great fantasy target. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:42 pm
  • Report: DAL not committed to Chandler Parsons
    The Mavs are reportedly willing to take the risk of letting Chandler Parsons sign with another team while they pursue Mike Conley and Hassan Whiteside during free agency.

    Advice: If the Mavs are able to land both Conley and Whiteside during free agency, they won't have enough money to realistically re-sign Parsons, and that's apparently a risk they are willing to take. Parsons had a down year this past season as he recovered from modified micro-fracture knee surgery, and was then required to again go under the knife for arthroscopic surgery on the same knee later in the year, but he's still sure to command plenty of interest on the open market. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • 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
  • Report: DET, MIL interested in Dellavedova
    The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

    Advice: Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting that both the Pistons and Bucks sent scouts to the Cavs playoff games, and he believes that those scouts were analyzing Dellavedova's game. Both the Bucks and the Pistons could use a reliable backup point guard, and Windhorst is reporting that they are prepared to offer Dellavedova something in the $10 million range as an unrestricted free agent. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, but Delly won't be a fantasy option on either club. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 am
  • Chandler Parsons will decline player option
    Chandler Parsons will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: He would've made $16 million next season if he opted in, but his decision will make him an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Despite coming off knee surgery, Parsons is still going to get a ton of interest due to the rising salary cap and the Mavs will have to give him a significant raise in order to keep him.
