  • James Young could be traded?
    James Young could be used as a trade chip for his $1.8 million contract next season.

    Advice: Basically, the Celtics could just use that money to make a trade work financially. Young had a bad Summer League and really hasn't played well since he was drafted. A change of scenery would probably be good for Young. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:56 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip surgery) is progressing
    Tiago Splitter (hip surgery) is now able to sprint at full speed.

    Advice: He posted a video of himself sprinting and doing agility drills on his Instagram account this week. He was given an eight-month timetable after undergoing surgery in February, so there's a chance he could be ready around the start of the 2016-17 season. Splitter won't have much fantasy value as the backup center behind Dwight Howard. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:36 am
  • Deron Williams says he will be ready for camp
    In an interview with NBCDFW.com, Deron Williams (sports hernia) said that he will be ready in time for training camp.

    Advice: "Feeling really good. It's healing pretty well, I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said. "I'll be ready to go definitely by the time training camp rolls around." He added that he's already jumping and running, and said that his next checkup is August 1st. Williams re-signed with the Mavs on a one-year, $10 million deal and should be team's starting point guard once again. However, he's more of a late-round pick after averaging 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game last season.

  • Meyers Leonard targeting start of season
    Meyers Leonard (shoulder surgery) said that he's hoping to be ready around the start of the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: "It's a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court," Leonard said. "We'll see. You just never know." The Blazers won't be in a hurry to rush him back after re-signing him to a four-year deal worth $41 million, and most players tend to be a little too optimistic about timetables anyways. If the Blazers re-sign Moe Harkless, Leonard's outlook for the 2016-17 campaign won't be great with Al-Farouq Aminu expected to play more power forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:31 am
  • Olshey calls Crabbe a foundational player
    Portland GM Neil Olshey said that Allen Crabbe is a "foundational player."

    Advice: "We all saw what he was able to do last season when he was given the opportunity," Olshey said. "Those opportunities will increase as we go forward. He's an incredible young player in this league." It sounds like Olshey expects Crabbe's role to grow, but that may be tough after the Blazers signed Evan Turner to a four-year deal and he obviously won't be taking minutes away from C.J. McCollum.

  • Hunter, Young to fight for last roster spot
    R.J. Hunter, James Young, Ben Bentil and John Holland are "in position to fight" for Boston's final roster spot according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe.

    Advice: The Celtics gave guaranteed deals to Tyler Zeller, Gerald Green and Demetrius Jackson on Saturday, so Boston's roster is nearly complete. None of those guys would crack the rotation on opening night anyways, so fantasy owners can ignore this. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:08 am
  • Cuban: Seth Curry is an 'instant-offense guy'
    Mark Cuban said he views Seth Curry as an "instant-offense guy" off the bench.

    Advice: "He's been in situations where only at the end of last season did he really get a chance to start and get minutes and when he got those minutes he did really well," Cuban said. "He can shoot, obviously. He can create his own shot, quick release. He's a knock-down 3-point shooter and we thought that was something we needed." Curry should be able to find a stable role off the bench in Dallas after signing a two-year, $6 million deal. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am
  • LAC, CHI and DET linked to Kevin Martin
    The Clippers, Bulls and Pistons are interested in Kevin Martin according to Amico Hoops.

    Advice: Martin was a shell of himself last season, averaging 9.3 points on 37.2 percent shooting. The 33-year-old veteran would likely have a limited role off the bench on all three of those teams. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:46 am
  • PHX, IND and ATL linked to Thomas Robinson
    The Suns, Pacers and Hawks are interested in free agent forward Thomas Robinson according to Amico Hoops.

    Advice: We haven't heard much about Robinson this offseason, so his market value is probably pretty low. He did have a nice finish to the 2015-16 season with averages of 14.6 points and 12.3 rebounds in seven starts, but he shot just 44.7 percent from the field and 43.1 percent from the line on the season.

  • Celtics, Tyler Zeller agree to 2-year deal
    Tyler Zeller has agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with the Celtics.

    Advice: The second year of the deal is a team option, so the Celtics will still keep their financial flexibility for the 2017 offseason. Zeller was solid in limited minutes last season, averaging 6.1 points, 3.0 boards and 0.4 blocks in 11.8 minutes per game. He won't have much fantasy value with Amir Johnson and Al Horford around.

  • Pelicans sign Tim Frazier
    The Pelicans have officially signed Tim Frazier.

    Advice: "We were really impressed with how well Tim performed last season," Pelicans GM Dell Demps said. "He stepped into our rotation late in the season and immediately made a positive impact. Tim is a player our coaches want to coach, and our players want to play with him. We are happy to have him back." Frazier had a strong finish to the 2015-16 season, but he won't have much value right out of the gate while Jrue Holiday is healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:03 am
  • Report: Gerald Green will join the Celtics
    Gerald Green has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Celtics.

    Advice: Once Green signs, they will have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster. Green is coming off a disappointing season in Miami where he averaged 8.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting. He will likely have a limited role at best in Boston. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:55 am
  • Pelicans sign Terrence Jones
    The Pelicans have officially signed Terrence Jones.

    Advice: It's just a one-year deal which will allow Jones to hit the open market again next summer. Jones has some durability concerns and fell out of the rotation in Houston last season, finishing with averages of 8.7 points, 4.2 boards and 0.8 blocks. He does have upside, but fantasy owners will be able to wait until the later rounds to snag him in the hope that he has a bounce-back campaign. If Anthony Davis plays a lot of center next season, there will be a path to minutes for Jones as he competes with Cheick Diallo for playing time. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 am
  • Coty Clarke signs in Europe
    Coty Clarke has signed a deal to play for Unics Kazan in Russia.

    Advice: He had a couple 10-day contracts with the Celtics last season and was with the Wolves during the summer league. It's just a one-year deal, so we could see Clarke back in the summer league next year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:12 am
  • David Stockton signs 3-year deal
    David Stockton has signed a three-year deal with Croatian team Cedevita Zagreb.

    Advice: It's unclear if there is an NBA out clause in the deal, but the 25-year-old may not get another shot in the NBA for a long time. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am
  • James Young on thin ice?
    Celtics Summer League coach Jamie Young said he wasn't happy with how James Young played on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was on the injury report due to a knee issue, but Young only played seven minutes on Wednesday. The 2014 draft pick has made no progress and has already been leapfrogged by basically every first-round pick since. Young was more of a defense-first guy, but his offense hasn't made any noteworthy improvements. The Celtics might look to deal him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:43 pm
  • Report: Terrence Jones inks 1-year deal w/ NO
    Terrence Jones has finalized a one-year contract with the Pelicans.

    Advice: Jones will get a fresh start in New Orleans, and perhaps he'll finally have a healthy season in which he realizes his potential. He will however be competing for minutes with rookie Cheik Diallo, who has been impressive during summer league, and his lengthy injury history makes him a risky draft day target. Jones contract with New Orleans is reportedly for the minimum, but that number reportedly could rise to $1.5 million if the Pels can successfully move some cap space around. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:59 pm
  • Terrence Jones may not be headed to NO?
    Terrence Jones has reportedly received at least one offer from another NBA team that is richer than what the Pelicans can pay.

    Advice: The Pelicans are hopeful that Jones will decide to come to New Orleans, but given Jones’ relatively low career earnings, it wouldn't be shocking to see him take the deal that offers him the most money. Jones is a highly talented individual, but his tendency to find his way to the sidelines for extended stretches due to weird injuries makes him a risky guy to target on draft day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:43 pm
  • Pelicans, Terrence Jones nearing 1-year deal
    The Pelicans and free agent Terrence Jones are reportedly nearing agreement to a one-year deal.

    Advice: Jones is coming off a lousy season with Houston, during which he averaged just 8.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in 50 appearances. His arrival gives the Pelicans some much-needed frontcourt depth, but rookie big man Cheick Diallo has been impressive at Summer League and it's questionable whether Jones will make a fantasy impact while Anthony Davis is healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:15 pm
  • James Young on the bubble for Boston Celtics?
    Danny Ainge said recently that James Young needs to "really step it up and prove that he belongs on a team."

    Advice: "He's had two years to develop and play some games in the D-League and get some minutes in games and practices," Ainge said. "The competition is real, I guess is what I'm saying." Young finished Wednesday's Summer League game scoreless in just seven minutes off the bench, which doesn't bode well. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:19 pm
