  • 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 Today, 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 Today, 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 Today, 10:40 am
  • Warriors eyeing Noah and Horford?
    According to Mercury News, the Warriors will look at Al Horford and Joakim Noah in free agency.

    Advice: Noah will be the cheaper option, but both players would give the Warriors an upgrade at center. The report also adds that Hassan Whiteside could even be an option. The Warriors are obviously going to make Kevin Durant their No. 1 priority, and they will likely have to move on from Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli to have a shot at any of these big names.

  • 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 Today, 10:07 am
  • Derrick Rose impresses at workout
    A source not affiliated with Derrick Rose or the Knicks reported that he looked "lean and explosive" at his workouts in Los Angeles.

    Advice: This is nice to hear, but the bigger issue for Rose is whether or not he can stay healthy as he enters a contract year with his new team. Add in the fact that he was one of the most inefficient players in the NBA last season and it's easy to see why he will be more of a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:40 am
  • Thunder will pick up Ilyasova's option
    The Thunder will pick up Ersan Ilyasova's option for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: This means he will be on the books for $8.4 million, but he will hit free agency next summer. Ilyasova should have a role off the Thunder bench with Serge Ibaka now in Orlando, but he will likely be a 3-point specialist at best in fantasy leagues next season. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:08 am
  • Wizards undecided on Drew Gooden
    The Wizards haven't decided if they will keep Drew Gooden.

    Advice: Gooden is on the books for $3.6 million for the 2016-17 season, but the deal isn't guaranteed. If he does remain with the Wizards, he will likely have a very limited role off the bench. Washington has until July 15 to make a decision. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:45 am
  • Wolves offered Rubio and Dunn for Butler
    The Wolves reportedly offered Ricky Rubio and the No. 5 pick (Kris Dunn) for Jimmy Butler on Thursday night.

    Advice: The Bulls are very high on Kris Dunn, but they reportedly wanted Zach LaVine instead of Rubio. It's no secret that the Wolves are at least exploring the idea of trading Rubio, and their decision to take Dunn at No. 5 only increases the chances of a move. Coach Tom Thibodeau said that he can picture Dunn playing alongside Rubio, but the trade rumors aren't going to quiet down anytime soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:19 am
  • Report: Kings shopping Rudy Gay
    According to The Vertical, the Pacers were in serious discussions with the Kings for Rudy Gay before they traded for Thaddeus Young.

    Advice: The Kings' asking price was apparently too high, but The Vertical is reporting that they are still looking to move Gay. The forward has two years left on his deal, but he has a player option for the 2017-18 season. We'll let you know if he's linked to any other teams. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:08 am
  • Willy Hernangomez likely to join Knicks
    Willy Hernangomez's agent Andy Miller is expecting the Knicks to sign his client to a multi-year deal this summer.

    Advice: "Willy's season has ended and we fully intend on pursuing his NBA dream of joining the Knicks," Miller told ESPN. "We intend on pursuing a multi-year deal to give him an opportunity to develop under the Knicks' tutelage." The Knicks traded Robin Lopez to the Bulls, so Hernangomez could see minutes at center right away if he signs with the Knicks this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:52 am
  • D.J. Stephens to join MEM for Summer League
    Free agent forward D.J. Stephens is expected to join the Grizzlies' Summer League team.

    Advice: Stephens, who played four years for Memphis in college, spent the 2015-16 season in the D-League where he averaged 8.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 blocks in limited playing time. He's a longshot to earn a guaranteed deal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Aaron Harrison headed to Summer League
    Aaron Harrison is headed to Summer League.

    Advice: If the Hornets don't bring back Jeremy Lin and miss on free agents, Harrison could be playing for a chance to get in the rotation. It does seem unlikely, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 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 Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • 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 Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Dunn to play next to Rubio
    Coach Tom Thibodeau said he expects Kris Dunn to play next to Ricky Rubio.

    Advice: Thibs loves to play his guys big minutes, so he might go with an air-tight guard rotation. There are some rumors of Rubio headed out of town, so that will be something to watch. Thibodeau traditionally likes attacking guards, but maybe Rubio's defense can win him over. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Ersan Ilyasova sent to Thunder in Ibaka deal
    Ersan Ilyasova was traded to the Thunder along with Victor Oladipo as part of Thursday's deal sending Serge Ibaka to the Magic.

    Advice: OKC has Mitch McGary, Enes Kanter and Nick Collison to support center Steven Adams, so Ilyasova will be battling for minutes during training camp. He's little more than a 3-point specialist at this stage of his career. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Woj: Timberwolves shopping Ricky Rubio around
    According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Timberwolves are shopping Ricky Rubio.

    Advice: This really comes as no surprise since Rubio doesn't fit what Tom Thibodeau wants to do. With the Wolves selecting Kris Dunn at No. 5 overall in Thursday's draft, Rubio's time in Minnesota is likely coming to a close sooner rather than later. His fantasy value would be dependent upon where he'd land, but Rubio's game is the same regardless of his destination. If he remains in Minnesota, it's unclear how playing time will shake out with Dunn and Zach LaVine in the mix. And then there's that Andrew Wiggins fella, as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:34 pm
  • Jackson: Knicks could keep Rose long-term
    Phil Jackson said the Knicks could potentially look to keep Derrick Rose beyond the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: Jackson referenced the situation as not something that was going to be addressed in depth today, and obviously New York will proceed with caution given Rose's history of injury issues. While the point guard has plenty of incentive to play well while remaining healthy in a contract year, the 66 games Rose played in during the 2015-16 campaign were his most since 2010-11. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:26 pm
  • Hernangomez coming to the NBA?
    Willy Hernangomez plans to join the Knicks on a multi-year contract this summer.

    Advice: The Knicks are going to be all in for a center in the free agent market, but Hernangomez could find himself getting minutes. In Spain, he averaged 6.1 points and 3.4 rebounds on 65 percent from the field. If the Knicks swing and miss in free agency, he might be someone to watch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:31 pm
  • Stein: Hawks trying to trade 2 first-rounders
    The Hawks will try to trade their two first-rounders to make re-signing Al Horford easier.

    Advice: Interesting. The Hawks picked up the No. 12 pick in the Jeff Teague deal on Wednesday. The Hawks also traded their No. 19 pick in a basically salary dump, so this isn't a new trick for them. Horford might actually be on board with staying, and the Hawks making a trade on Thursday would be very revealing. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:38 pm
  • Knicks trade R Lopez, others for Derrick Rose
    The Bulls are sending Derrick Rose, Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick to the Knicks for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon.

    Advice: Wow. The Bulls will be set for rebuilding mode and Rose gets a fresh start. He was one of the worst high-volume players in the NBA last year. Rose was relatively healthy last year, playing in 66 games and not missing more than three consecutive games. He likely won't have the ball in his hands as much with Carmelo Anthony around, so Rose likely won't be a big factor on the stat sheet. He's only a late-round flier in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:17 pm
  • Report: ORL, LAL, DET will pursue Al Horford
    The Magic, Lakers and Pistons will reportedly go after Al Horford as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: Horford is going to command plenty of attention as a free agent this offseason, so there's sure to be plenty more names added to this list. The Pistons seem like a bit of a strange fit with Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond already on the roster, and while the Lakers will be able to offer the prestige of a historic franchise, it's unclear if Horford is at all interested in going through a rebuild. The Magic also don't seem like a realistic option given where Horford is at in his career. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:27 am
  • 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 Saturday, 9:37 am
  • Report: Knicks discussing Derrick Rose trade
    The Knicks have had internal discussions recently about trading for Derrick Rose, according to ESPN NY's Ian Begley.

    Advice: The Knicks are looking to get an athletic point guard for coach Jeff Hornacek. There's a chance the Bulls go into a rebuild mode and could trade Rose away, especially if they deal Jimmy Butler. The Knicks don't have much to work with trade chips, so it might have to be a three-way deal. To be clear, nothing is imminent. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:44 pm
  • Report: Bulls looking to move Derrick Rose
    The Chicago Bulls are reportedly looking to trade Derrick Rose.

    Advice: While Jimmy Butler has been involved in recent trade rumors, the Bulls would rather move Rose and are reportedly actively shopping the former MVP. It's unclear if there are currently any teams interested in acquiring Rose, but his $21.3 million salary for 2016-17 could be a deterrent for any potential suitor. We'll keep an eye on news surrounding Rose, but the Bulls may be stuck with him as he enters a contract year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:58 am
