  • Rockets sign Pablo Prigioni
    Rockets sign G Pablo Prigioni.

    Advice: It's a two-year deal with a team option on the second year. Prigioni is 39 years old and played in 59 games last year for the Clippers. He won't have much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:07 pm
  • Dwyane Wade: It's Jimmy Butler's team
    Dwyane Wade said the Bulls are "Jimmy Butler's team."

    Advice: "This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Jimmy Butler," Wade said. He said he's just going to play his game, so it doesn't sound like he'll be adding many 3-pointers to his arsenal. Wade ranked in the top five for usage rate among qualifiers in the last two years, so it'll be interesting to see how the shots are distributed in the Chicago offense. Wade will be a risky mid-round pick. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 pm
  • Greivis Vasquez will not play in Olympics
    Greivis Vasquez announced on Friday that he will not play in the Olympics.

    Advice: He is fully recovered from the ankle surgery that he had in December, but he's not in good shape yet. Vasquez can now focus on the upcoming season in which he will be competing for the backup PG role in Brooklyn. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:25 am
  • Derrick Rose will head to trial
    Derrick Rose will head to trial on October 4 after his request to get a sexual assault civil case against him thrown out was denied.

    Advice: A former girlfriend of Rose accused him and his friends of drugging and sexually assaulting her and allegations were brought forth in August 2015 (two years after the alleged assault). Rose can settle the case outside of court before the trial begins, but he could end up missing part of the Knicks' preseason. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 am
  • E'Twaun Moore says he's comfortable w/ NOP
    E'Twaun Moore said that he chose the Pelicans because he was a little more comfortable with the coaching staff.

    Advice: "I definitely had a lot more interest from New Orleans than the Bulls," Moore said. "I was in contact more with New Orleans. I just felt a little bit more comfortable with New Orleans’ organization and the coaching staff and everything, what they were trying to do with the future. Everything worked out." The four-year, $34 million contract probably made him feel comfortable too. Moore said he hasn't talked about his role for next season with the coaching staff, but he will likely be a key part of the second unit and could see minutes at both guard spots.

  • Report: Heat will still consider Udrih
    The Heat could still bring in Beno Udrih for training camp according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    Advice: The Heat currently have 18 players on the books and have four players capable of playing the point in Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson, Briante Weber and Josh Richardson. Udrih will likely explore other options before committing to the Heat's training camp. The 34-year-old veteran shouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues next season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 am
  • Bulls officially sign G Spencer Dinwiddie
    The Bulls have officially signed G Spencer Dinwiddie.

    Advice: Dinwiddie will be competing for reserve minutes with Jerian Grant, meaning that his fantasy value will be non-existent in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Seth Curry to play some point guard in DAL
    Seth Curry is expected to play some point guard for the Mavericks according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com.

    Advice: Mark Cuban said he views Seth Curry as an "instant-offense guy" off the bench, but now we know he will likely see minutes at both guard spots. "He can get buckets and he can shoot," Cuban said. "You know, he’s been in some dysfunctional situations, and I think he’ll be able to thrive with us. He can get his shot off, and he can do a lot more." Curry has the potential to become a sixth man for the Mavs this season which puts him on the radar as a late-round flier.

  • Nick Calathes will remain overseas
    Nick Calathes will remain overseas with Panathinakos despite drawing interest from the Kings.

    Advice: He did say that he would like to play for coach Dave Joerger again, so maybe the Kings will try to sign him next summer. The Kings only have two point guards on their roster at the moment in Darren Collison and Isaiah Cousins, so expect them to pursue another PG soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 am

  • Nick Calathes will remain with Panathinakos
    Nick Calathes will remain in Greece playing for the Panathinakos this upcoming season.

    Advice: Vlade Divac was trying to lure Calathes away from Europe to re-unite him with his former coach David Joerger, but Calathes is a star in Greece and he'd be relegated to a minimal bench role with the Kings. Sacramento's continued search for a backup point guard indicates they are not entirely comfortable using Isaiah Cousins as Darren Collison's primary reserve. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 am

  • Report: Ty Lawson not drawing much interest
    Ty Lawson has reportedly received some calls during free agency, but the teams that have called are not willing to commit much to the unrestricted free agent.

    Advice: Lawson is just two years removed from averaging 15.2 points, 9.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game, but after two failed stints in Houston and Indiana, and his well documented off-court incidents, his value has taken a major hit. Lawson has said that he's willing to sign a contract for "cheaper" than what he feels he's worth, but with most teams all set up at the point guard position, Lawson is running out of options. If he does nab a deal, he'll more than likely be coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:39 am

  • Russ Smith signs with Galatasaray of Turkey
    Russ Smith has signed a contract with Galatasaray of Turkey.

    Advice: Smith just hasn't been able to earn consistent minutes at the NBA level, so he'll be taking his talents overseas where he's expected to start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:20 am
  • McCollum's production won't dip w/ big payday
    C.J. McCollum vowed to keep playing to his fullest potential when his big money deal kicks in during the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: "I stay paranoid," said McCollum. "That’s the thing that got me to this point is being paranoid, playing with a chip on your shoulder understanding that it’s more than just money, it’s more than just playing for a starting spot. You’re playing for your last name." McCollum will earn just $3.2 million this upcoming season, but that number will skyrocket to roughly $26.5 million in 2018. We're confident McCollum will continue to leave everything on the floor, and he'll make for a fine early-round selection on draft day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:18 am
  • Dennis Schroder won't play for Team Germany
    Dennis Schroder will not play for Team Germany this summer.

    Advice: Schroder will enter the 2016-17 season as Atlanta's starting point guard, so it sounds like he'll use the time he has during the offseason to make sure he's fresh and fully prepared for taking on a much larger role in Atlanta. Through six starts last season, Schroder posted averages of 13.7 points, 3.8 boards, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples on 38.8 percent shooting. He'll be a high-upside guy to take towards the later rounds on draft day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:07 am
  • Cameron Payne (foot) targeting opening night
    The Thunder are hopeful that Cameron Payne (Jones fracture) will be ready to go for the 2016-17 regular-season opener.

    Advice: Foot injuries can be tricky, so any setback in the recovery process would likely mean that Payne would begin the 2016-17 season on the sidelines. If Payne isn't ready for opening night, Russell Westbrook and Victor Oladipo would get all the run they could handle, with Semaj Christon seeing some increased opportunity as the team's backup point guard. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:44 am
  • Pistons sign Ray McCallum
    The Pistons have officially signed Ray McCallum.

    Advice: He didn't crack the rotation in San Antonio last season and ended up with the Grizzlies on a pair of 10-day contracts. McCallum could be the third-string PG in Detroit with a strong training camp, but he won't be relevant in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:51 am
  • Kings trying to get Nick Calathes?
    The Kings are trying to lure Nick Calathes from Greek Panathinaikos.

    Advice: Calathes signed a three-year deal last summer, so he would have to get out of the last two years of his contract. The Kings really need a backup point guard, so this is just another indicator they're still in the market for one. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:29 pm

  • Cameron Payne has foot surgery
    Cameron Payne had right foot surgery for a Jones fracture.

    Advice: The Jones fracture is the same mid-foot fracture Kevin Durant had two seasons ago. Payne had himself a nice Summer League and he should be ready for training camp in October. If the Thunder aren't able to get a deal done with Russell Westbrook, we might see a lot of Payne later in the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:44 pm
  • Report: CJ McCollum, Blazers reach $106M deal
    C.J. McCollum and the Trail Blazers have reached agreement on a four-year, $106M contract extension, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: Portland has made some questionable moves this offseason, but this certainly is not one of them. McCollum, who will be just 25 in September, averaged career-high marks across the board in what can only be described as a breakout 2015-16 season. Now, there will be no questioning what his future looks like with the Blazers, and the team will push forward in its rebuild with McCollum and Damian Lillard at the helm. McCollum, who averaged 20.8 points, 2.5 3PM and 1.2 steals on 44.8 percent shooting last season, could be in line to improve upon those numbers in his second full go-around as the unquestioned starting shooting guard. Per Wojnarowski, the deal will not include any options or trade kickers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:09 am
  • Ray McCallum expected to sign with Pistons
    Ray McCallum is expected to sign with the Pistons.

    Advice: Detroit has been in the market for a third-string point guard, but McCallum would have to beat out Lorenzo Brown in order to take that job. Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith are locked in at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively on the depth chart. There is no fantasy spin here. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:52 am
  • Greivis Vasquez may not play in Rio 2016
    Greivis Vasquez might not make the final roster for Team Venezuela.

    Advice: Venezuela's coach suggested that he didn't put him on the court during Venezuela's most recent exhibition vs. Spain because Vasquez is still "concentrating on getting in shape." Vasquez is fully cleared to play, but he did undergo ankle surgery back in December that cost him 56 games, so perhaps he's not quite 100 percent just yet. Team Venezuela will need to submit their official Olympic roster by Saturday, so we'll have official confirmation on Vasquez's status for Rio at that point. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:48 pm
  • 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 Saturday, 9:02 am
  • Derrick Rose calls the Knicks a 'super team'
    Derrick Rose said that the expectations in New York are high because the Knicks are a "super team."

    Advice: "They're high," Rose said. "I mean, with these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they're trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that." He's probably getting way ahead of himself with that comment, but at least he's feeling confident again and he said that he has been "rejuvenated" by his move to New York. Rose also said that he's been working out six days a week and that he's focused on improving his mid-range shot this summer as well as his conditioning. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 am
  • Pelicans sign G E'Twaun Moore
    Pelicans sign G E'Twaun Moore.

    Advice: Moore has officially signed his four-year, $34 million deal and will provide the Pelicans with guard depth off the bench. While the 27-year-old could see minutes if there are injuries in front of him, he won't have much fantasy value on the Pelicans second unit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:11 am
  • Ty Lawson feels he's regained some confidence
    Ty Lawson said that he regained some confidence by watching some of his old highlights on YouTube.

    Advice: "Last [season] was the first time I felt that I wasn’t the confident player," said Lawson. "If I did any wrong thing, I would be scared to shoot it or scared to make a pass. But it’s all confidence. I sat down, looked in the mirror and watched my old YouTube videos and realized I am the same player I am. I just have to be confident shooting the ball and play my regular game." Lawson added that he's been in the gym every day, putting up extra shots, and he's willing to sign a contract for "cheaper" than what he feels he's worth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:56 am
