  • Bulls might trade Mike Dunleavy?
    ESPN's Nick Friedell says that the Bulls might look to move Mike Dunleavy in the coming weeks.

    Advice: In case you missed it, Taj Gibson could also be on the move as the Bulls look to restructure their roster. Dunleavy is on the books for $4.8 million next season, but the Bulls probably wouldn't get much in return for the veteran sharpshooter. Doug McDermott should see more minutes on the wings if Dunleavy is moved. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago
  • 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 Today, 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 Today, 6:37 am
  • Knicks could have a shot a Jamal Crawford?
    The Knicks could be a possibility for unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawford.

    Advice: "I'm not talking about any one team but everyone knows how I feel about New York," Crawford said. "I really enjoyed my time there." Crawford spent four seasons with the Knicks and played under four different coaches. Since then, he's flourished as a bench player, winning Sixth Man of the Year three times.

  • DeRozan not planning to meet with other teams
    DeMar DeRozan does not plan to schedule meetings with other teams at the start of free agency, according to Tim McMahon of ESPN.com.

    Advice: He is going to focus on agreeing to terms with the Raptors. DeRozan has said his mindset has always been Toronto for basically the entire season, including after he was knocked out of the postseason. The Raptors can offer DeRozan a five-year, $153 million deal. General manager Masai Ujiri said his No. 1 goal is to bring the 2015-16 All-Star back, so the Raptors are heavy favorites. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:52 pm
  • James Anderson agrees to play overseas
    James Anderson has reached a long-term agreement to play with Darussafaka.

    Advice: He'll be coached by David Blatt after going through a wild season with the Kings. Anderson opted out of a minimum deal with the Kings and he's likely going to get paid a little more. Plus, he'll get more playing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:33 pm
  • Kyrie Irving accepts invite for Team USA
    Kyrie Irving has accepted his invitation from USA Basketball to play in the 2016 Olympics.

    Advice: He didn't play much basketball last summer with his knee injury, but this year he'll be playing a ton. Irving will be arguably the best point guard on the Team USA roster and should run the offense while he's out there. The 24-year-old guard accepting his invite also suggests his foot injury during the playoffs is feeling better. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:26 pm
  • Report: Grizzlies won't bring Mumford back
    The Grizzlies will not bring back Xavier Munford, according to NBA reporter David Pick.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with the Grizzlies picking up Wade Baldwin IV in the draft. Munford was solid at times on the defensive end, but he'll have to work on his offense. Expect him to be in Vegas for Summer League. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • Khris Middleton wants to stay with Bucks
    Khris Middleton said that he will be "more than happy" to remain in Milwaukee.

    Advice: "I've been seeing a lot of rumors and tweets about that," Middleton said of the recent trade rumors. "Right now I'm in Milwaukee but you never know. It's good that other teams want me but I'll be more than happy to stay in Milwaukee." The Celtics were linked to Middleton prior to the draft, but the Bucks haven't given any indication that they are looking to move him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 am
  • Kent Bazemore would like to re-sign with ATL
    Kent Bazemore said that he would love to stay in Atlanta.

    Advice: "I am a free agent again this summer and would love to stay in Atlanta," Bazemore said. "The one thing I have learned throughout this journey is how important balance is. The game takes up a huge amount of your time, and those moments you step away from it, you want to be happy. I have grown so much in Atlanta, not only as a player but as a person, too." The Hawks drafted two small forwards on Thursday, but general manager Wes Wilcox made it clear that re-signing Bazemore is still a top priority for the franchise. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:50 am
  • Jazz not looking to trade Gordon Hayward
    The Jazz are not looking to trade Gordon Hayward according to Deseret News.

    Advice: A report from hoopscritic.com indicated that Hayward is unhappy in Utah, but that has since been discredited. Hayward has been working out at Zions Bank Basketball Center every morning and a team source made it clear that there is nothing to the rumor. The Jazz still believe that Hayward is a major cornerstone and it doesn't sound like he's going anywhere despite rumored interest from the Celtics and the Suns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:47 am
  • Watson says Suns are not shopping Bledsoe
    Earl Watson said that the Suns are not shopping Eric Bledsoe.

    Advice: There was a report that the Suns were looking to deal either Brandon Knight or Bledsoe, but take Watson's comments with a grain of salt because admitting to this would hurt the Suns' leverage in trade talks. Bledsoe (knee) has resumed basketball activities and has a goal to be 100 percent for training camp, but trading him while his value is low wouldn't make much sense for the Suns. Expect him to open the season as the starting PG in Phoenix next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 am
  • Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson to pitch KD?
    The Warriors are planning to have Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson board a plane in a effort to pitch Kevin Durant, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: According to Stein's report, the Warriors "increasingly believe" they can persuade KD based on how the Warriors fell short in the NBA Finals. If the can bring on Durant, that would mean Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli would be gone while they might have to unload Andrew Bogut or Andre Iguodala. Giddy up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:53 pm
  • Bradley Beal will not play in Olympics
    Bradley Beal will not participate for Team USA this summer.

    Advice: Beal announced it in a statement on his Twitter account: "I could not be more grateful for the invitation to represent my country, as it is the ultimate honor, however it is with deep regret that I have declined the opportunity to participate with Team USA this summer in Rio. I have made the decision to dedicate this summer to getting in the best physical shape of my life and feel it is imperative that I stay true to my plan so I can be at my very best supporting my coaches and teammates for the upcoming season." This is good news for the Wizards due to how Beal has so many injuries to his leg. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:22 pm
  • Jodie Meeks still on the block
    The Pistons will continue to shop Jodie Meeks.

    Advice: This is fairly obvious. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has really panned out for the Pistons and gets serious minutes. Meeks' contract expires after the 2016-17 season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:17 am
  • Warriors linked with Nicolas Batum
    If the Warriors can't sign Kevin Durant, they are expected to look at Nicolas Batum in free agency.

    Advice: Things aren't looking good for Harrison Barnes' future in Golden State. The Thunder are likely still the favorites to re-sign Durant, while Batum is likely going to receive several max offers and Charlotte will do everything in their power to keep him. For what it's worth, Evan Turner's name has also popped up, but he would be a questionable fit in Golden State since he's not much of a shooter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 am
  • Report: Bulls are interested in Evan Turner
    According to Sporting News, the Bulls are interested in Evan Turner.

    Advice: Turner has previously said that he would like to re-sign with Boston, but he might be a little too expensive for Danny Ainge. We already know that the Knicks are also interested in Turner, but both New York and Chicago would be decent spots for him to have fantasy value. According to Mercury News, the Warriors could also have some interest in Turner. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:07 am
  • Hawks will still make Bazemore a priority
    Even though the Hawks drafted two small forwards, they will still make re-signing Kent Bazemore a priority in free agency.

    Advice: "I will say Kent Bazemore is absolutely a Hawks priority," general manager Wes Wilcox said after the draft. "We love Kent. He is a huge part of what we do. I don’t think there should be any confusion as to how important Kent is to us." The Hawks drafted two small forwards in the first round in Taurean Prince and DeAndre Bembry, but Wilcox said that he simply took the best player available with each pick. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:13 am
  • Nets not sure on Jarrett Jack
    The Nets are unsure if they will pick up Jarrett Jack's (knee) team option.

    Advice: The Nets have until June 30 to make the call. If they don't pick it up, they would only owe Jack his $500K guarantee. He could also be an interesting trade chip. The Nets picked up Isaiah Whitehead, so he would have a huge opportunity in front of him sans Jack. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:40 pm
  • DEN SG spot still belongs to Gary Harris
    General manager Tim Connelly said the starting shooting guard job still belongs to Gary Harris.

    Advice: As it should. Harris was one of the best young perimeter defenders and is one of just seven NBA players under the age of 22 with at least 30 minutes per game last season. Plus, he was very efficient with a 57 true shooting percentage. He's still a pretty good bet to put up minutes in the low 30s even with Jamal Murray as a potential scoring stud. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:31 pm
  • Forman: Bulls were not shopping Jimmy Butler
    Bulls GM Gar Forman said the Bulls were not shopping Jimmy Butler on draft night.

    Advice: "We like Jimmy Butler. We didn't shop Jimmy Butler," Forman said. While Chicago may not have been making the calls, the front office was certainly taking them and there will be some damage control to be done with their franchise star as a result of his name being bandied about on draft night. It sounds like the Timberwolves had the most traction on any potential Butler deal, but at the end of the day the Bulls decided there simply wasn't a good enough offer on the table to move into a full rebuild. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 pm
  • Update: Jimmy Butler likely to stay w/ Bulls
    Jimmy Butler is now expected to remain in Chicago, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

    Advice: The Bulls talked to both the Celtics and Wolves about a deal involving No. 5 pick Kris Dunn, and reportedly came closer to an agreement with Boston, but ultimately they opted to stand pat. Chicago still needs a starting-caliber PG to replace Derrick Rose, so it's safe to assume they'll continue to surface in trade talks during the offseason. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:45 pm
  • Wolves, Bulls have rising optimism about deal
    There is reportedly "rising optimism" that the Wolves and Bulls can work out a trade sending Jimmy Butler to Minnesota in exchange for a package including No. 5 pick Kris Dunn.

    Advice: A false report suggested that he had been traded but that isn't the case, and the two sides continue to discuss a potential deal. Tom Thibodeau is eager to reunite with Butler, and the Bulls covet Dunn, but for now it's still in the exploration phase. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:49 pm
  • Wolves still trying to trade for Jimmy Butler
    The Timberwolves are reportedly still trying to trade for Jimmy Butler with a package centered around No. 5 pick Kris Dunn.

    Advice: The Bulls tried hard to trade up in the draft to acquire Dunn, but it's unclear if they'd be willing to deal Butler to the Wolves and coach Tom Thibodeau. Minnesota has plenty of young talent to include with Dunn, however, so anything is possible. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:19 pm
  • Report: BOS talks to Bulls, 76ers about No. 3
    The Celtics and Bulls are still discussing a trade involving Jimmy Butler, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: Boston has a warchest of draft picks, including the No. 3 pick, and they've also been linked to ongoing discussions with the 76ers, and both teams reportedly covet Providence PG Kris Dunn. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:30 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
  • Jackson expects to re-sign Galloway, Thomas
    Phil Jackson said that he anticipates re-signing Langston Galloway and Lance Thomas during free agency.

    Advice: These aren't the kind of players that will command significant interest on the open market, so chances are they will remain in New York. Neither Galloway, nor Thomas will be much of a factor in fantasy hoops next season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:23 pm
  • James Harden hasn't talked to Dwight Howard
    James Harden said that he hasn't spoken with Dwight Howard regarding Howard's decision to opt out of his contract and test free agency.

    Advice: "He's his own man, he knows what's best for his career," Harden said Thursday. "I haven't really talked to him, he'll make whatever is the best decision [for him]." Harden also went on to say that he will recruit Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent, so it doesn't sound like he has much interest in continuing his partnership with D-12. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Gordon Hayward will not play for Team USA
    Gordon Hayward has decided to not participate in the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Advice: Hayward was given an invite, but ultimately he decided to opt out for "family reasons." Hayward has a baby on the way, and concerns over the Zika virus likely played a role in his decision. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:45 pm
  • Report: Boston trying to trade for Middleton
    The Celtics are reportedly trying to execute a deal that will net them Khris Middleton.

    Advice: In recent days the Bucks have labeled guys like Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker as "untouchables," but that hasn't stopped Boston from peppering them with offers. The Bucks are trying to move Greg Monroe, and the Celtics would be willing to take him on if Middleton was a part of the package. Boston is reportedly offering the No. 16 and 23 selections in the 2016 draft and another player, although sources of CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report that a draft-day trade is "possible, but unlikely." Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:08 pm
  • Report: DeMar DeRozan will play for Team USA
    DeMar DeRozan has committed to playing for Team USA.

    Advice: Paul George, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Kyle Lowry, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo Anthony and DeAndre Jordan will join DeRozan in Rio, so the US squad will obviously be favored to take home the gold. Kyrie Irving is still undecided as to whether or not he will participate. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:34 am
  • James Harden ready to be more of a playmaker
    James Harden said he's spoken to Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni about being more of a playmaker.

    Advice: That sentence is music to fantasy owners ears after Harden averaged 29.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 1.7 steals, and 2.9 three-pointers in 2015-16 and should thrive in D'Antoni's fast-paced offense. Harden added that he is going to try to recruit Kevin Durant to Houston, but he'll remain a top fantasy option in 2016-17 regardless of his success in that pursuit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:57 am
  • Jimmy Butler accepts invite to Team USA
    Jimmy Butler has accepted an invitation to play in the 2016 Summer Olympics with Team USA

    Advice: Butler has been subject of recent trade rumors, but it looks like he can focus on the Olympics as a trade doesn't seem likely. Assuming he isn't moved before the 2016 NBA Draft on Thursday, the 26-year-old will move forward as the Bulls centerpiece and will enter 2016-17 fantasy drafts with a first-round value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:29 am
  • Report: Suns open to moving Brandon Knight
    The Phoenix Suns are open to moving either Brandon Knight or Eric Bledsoe, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Advice: The emergence of Devin Booker will make for a crowded Suns backcourt, so it makes a lot of sense for Phoenix to explore a trade for Knight or Bledsoe. A trade of either veteran would give a fantasy value boost both Booker and the one of the two guards who isn't traded, but we may not see a deal come to fruition until closer to the draft (if at all). Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:23 am
  • Suns reportedly rebuffed for Gordon Hayward
    The Jazz declined an offer from the Suns for Gordon Hayward, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Advice: Hayward has appeared in trade rumors leading up to Thursday's draft and the latest has the Jazz declining an offer of Eric Bledsoe and one of the Suns lottery picks for the swingman. The 26-year-old's 2015-15 averages of 19.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.8 treys only returned fantasy owners top-60 value, but he should be able to break into the top-50 if he's traded to a team that plays at a faster pace. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:17 am
  • Paul George will play in Summer Olympics
    Paul George has accepted an invitation to play with Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

    Advice: George suffered a gruesome broken leg the last time he played for Team USA and is hoping to use these Olympics as closure from that injury. The 26-year-old had a fantastic 2015-16 season after sitting out most of 2014-15 and should be an early-round fantasy consideration in 2016-17 after averaging a career-high 23.1 points to go along with 7.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.6 treys last season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:13 am
  • Myers: Steph Curry (knee) won't need surgery
    Warriors GM Bob Myers confirmed that Stephen Curry (knee) will not require offseason surgery.

    Advice: Curry was also dealing with ankle and elbow injuries in the Finals, but none of his ailments seem to have long-term implications. The reigning MVP has decided to skip the Olympics to rest and he should be fully healthy entering training camp, which is great news for fantasy owners who land the No. 1 pick in their drafts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:34 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe (knee) coming along
    Eric Bledsoe (knee) has resumed basketball activities and has a goal to be 100 percent for training camp.

    Advice: "I feel like I should be doing more, but it’ll be a long season next year, so right now I’m just preparing my body," Bledsoe said. His name has come up in trade rumors lately, but it would be surprising to see him traded on Thursday. When healthy, he's one of the better point guards out there and flirted with first-round value in standard leagues before his season-ending meniscus tear. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:19 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
  • Report: Suns may look to move Eric Bledsoe?
    The Suns may look to trade away Eric Bledsoe this offseason.

    Advice: The Suns have a strange collection of up-and-coming talent and various players that are in win-now mode, so they may choose to just accept another rebuild and trade away guys like Bledsoe and Tyson Chandler. Phoenix currently owns the No. 4 overall selection in the upcoming draft, and they reportedly have interest in taking Kris Dunn with that pick, which would give them yet another point guard. Bledsoe's value isn't very high right now, as he's coming off his third knee surgery, but he is making solid progress and current reports state he'll be ready for training camp. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:03 am
  • Report: Bulls uninterested in dealing Butler
    The Bulls are reportedly uninterested in dealing Jimmy Butler to the Celtics in exchange for the No. 3 overall pick.

    Advice: The Celtics have had their eyes on Jimmy Buckets for some time now, and while the Bulls will entertain offers, it doesn't sound like they've heard anything that will make them pull the trigger on a deal. The Timberwolves have also been trying to persuade the Bulls to part ways with their franchise cornerstone, but with how Tom Thibodeau's tenure ended in Chicago, it would be surprising to see him and Gar Forman have a constructive conversation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:39 am
  • Report: Utah not shopping Gordon Hayward
    The Jazz are reportedly telling inquiring teams that Gordon Hayward is not available.

    Advice: The Celtics and Suns have reportedly been offering packages involving their stock pile of draft picks for Hayward, but it doesn't sound like the Jazz are at all interested in moving him. Hayward's value took a minor hit this past season, as he fell to a top-60 value evaluation in standard 9-cat leagues behind averages of 19.7 points, 5.0 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.8 triples and 2.5 turnovers per game. Hayward likely won't have the ball in his hands as often next season with Dante Exum (knee) healthy, so it'll be tough for him to offer much more than mid-round value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:20 am
  • Stephen Curry not planning on surgery
    Stephen Curry said he's not planning on having any offseason surgeries.

    Advice: The MVP dealt with a lot of bumps and bruises this season, including injuries to his shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle. Curry has played in at least 78 games in each of his last four seasons, but he missed six games during the playoffs and wasn't 100 percent for most of their run. He will be coming off the board at No. 1 next year in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:09 pm
  • Stephen Curry reflects on 2015-16 season
    Stephen Curry said that it hurts to lose the Finals after a historic 73-win regular season.

    Advice: "Did something no team's done before. Fell short in the last game of the season. It hurts," Curry said. "It wasn't easy what we accomplished, and it's not an easy pill to swallow what we didn't accomplish. So you've got to take the good with the bad, understand that we hopefully will have many more opportunities to fight for championships and be on this stage because it is what it's all about." Curry's performance in the playoffs didn't compare to his incredible regular season, but his health could've been a factor. He should be the No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts next season. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 6:48 am
  • Kyrie Irving dazzles, Cavs win classic Game 7
    The Cavs won a scintillating Game 7 on Sunday, 93-89, with Kyrie Irving (left foot) contributing 26 points on 10-of-23 shooting, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal, one block and only two turnovers.

    Advice: Irving appeared to jam his foot against Festus Ezeli in Game 6 but it didn't limit him tonight, as he played well at both ends and hit a few incredible contested shots -- follow the link below for a particularly nice and-1 layup. Kyrie's injury history is always a background concern for fantasy owners, but his elite upside is undeniable and he's unlikely to fall past No. 30 in many drafts. In other news, Irving is reportedly expected to earn a spot on Team USA's final roster. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 8:24 pm
  • Steph Curry's season ends w/ 6-of-19 shooting
    Stephen Curry struggled during Sunday's season-ending Game 7 defeat, scoring 17 points on 6-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Curry said prior to the game, "I need to take it up another notch for Game 7, that's what the greats do." He wound up 4-of-14 from downtown, missing many shots he usually makes, while committing four costly turnovers in an absolute classic of a game. The reigning fantasy and real-world MVP didn't win the Larry O'Brien trophy tonight, but he's still the default No. 1 pick for fantasy owners next year. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 8:21 pm
  • Kyrie Irving (foot) says that he is 'fine'
    Kyrie Irving said that he's feeling no lingering pain from the left foot injury he suffered during Game 6.

    Advice: "I’m good now," Irving said on Saturday. "I watched the play again, and I kind of made contact with Festus [Ezeli's] foot. It just was really bothering me toward the end of the game." Irving probably isn't 100 percent going into Game 7, but that won't stop him from taking the floor tonight. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 2:27 pm
  • Cho hopes to re-sign Batum quickly
    Hornets GM Rich Cho wants to meet with Nicolas Batum right when free agency begins.

    Advice: "We hope to meet with him as soon as free agency starts," Cho said. "Our goal is to get something done with him." Cho has previously said that re-signing Batum is the team's top priority, but it will likely take a max offer to get a deal done due to the rising salary cap. Free agency begins on July 1. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 9:37 am
  • Stephen Curry won't be suspended for Game 7
    Stephen Curry will not be suspended for Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.

    Advice: Curry inadvertently threw his mouthpiece at a fan in frustration after fouling out of Game 6, but a suspension would've been a major surprise. Curry will be fined $25,000 by the NBA and coach Steve Kerr will also have to pay $25,000 for criticizing the officials after the game. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 8:18 am
  • Jamal Crawford wants to re-sign with Clippers
    Jamal Crawford said that his preference is to re-sign with the Clippers this summer.

    Advice: "My preference is to re-sign with the Clippers," Crawford said. "But I understand that, at the end of the day, I’m a free agent so I have to look at everything. I have to take every call and consider every offer that comes to me and my agent. I have to, that’s just part of being a free agent." Crawford also said that Doc Rivers wants to bring him back, but the 36-year-old is the reigning Sixth Man of the Year and he isn't going to be cheap with the rising salary cap. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 8:01 am
  • Kyrie Irving (foot) says he will play Sunday
    Kyrie Irving said that his foot injury won't prevent him from playing in Game 7 on Sunday.

    Advice: "I'm good, yeah," Irving said when asked about his foot. "I'm good. I'm OK." Festus Ezeli stepped on the inside of Irving's left foot during the third quarter of Game 6, but the star point guard was able to carry on and Cavs coach Tyronn Lue confirmed after the game that he "tweaked it a little bit." Irving has two full days to recover and is fully expected to be ready for Game 7. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 6:14 am
  • Kyrie Irving scores 23 in win
    Kyrie Irving scored 23 points during a Game 6 115-101 victory on Thursday, adding four rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: It was the LeBron James show, so Irving didn't need to repeat his 41-point explosion from Game 5. Irving's defense has been much better lately, but the guys behind him were terrific. The Warriors lost three games to Eastern Conference teams all regular season, but now the Cavs will go for their fourth win against them during Game 7 on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 9:21 pm
  • Stephen Curry fouls out in loss, scores 30
    Stephen Curry fouled out in 35 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 30 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's the first time he's fouled out since 2013. Curry was very aggressive with reaching all game and it came back to bite him. He also inadvertently threw his mouthpiece at a fan and was ejected for it, but did apologize to the fan. Curry will need to be on it for Game 7 in Oakland on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 8:52 pm
  • Steph Curry wants Warriors to limit mistakes
    Stephen Curry wants the Warriors to limit their mistakes in Game 6 on Thursday.

    Advice: Curry said he wasn't worried about missed shots from Game 5, but wants the team to cut down on their mistakes and turnovers. "The stuff that kind of bothered me the most is on the offensive end there were certain possessions where we had the right reads and right looks, but passes got deflected because they were a little lazy or we didn’t have a crispness to what we were doing," Curry said. "That was a situation where you felt like you had missed opportunities." Team mistakes aside, Curry has struggled a bit in this series and will need to show his MVP form to help the Warriors close the series on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 7:47 am
