  • Jamal Crawford expected to be in demand
    Jamal Crawford is expected to receive interest from around the league as an unrestricted free agent.

    Advice: The reigning Sixth Man of the Year is expected to receive interest from the Knicks, Heat, Raptors, Mavericks, Magic, and the Nets in addition to the Clippers, so he'll have no shortage of suitors when he officially becomes a free agent on July 1. The 36-year-old has said he'd like to re-sign with the Clippers so it would be a surprise to see him wearing another uniform next season. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago
  • Jimmy Butler wants some help in Chicago
    Jimmy Butler thinks the Bulls need to add more players who can help the team.

    Advice: While Butler is now the franchise player in Chicago, he knows he can't do it alone. "I can't do this by myself. I need four other guys out there with me," Butler said. "We need guys coming off the bench to help us win games. All that talk about who's team it is, we need to have a team full of guys who think it's their team and help us win." The Bulls 2016-17 offense will primarily run through Butler and he should have no problem returning first-round value for his fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:04 am
  • Magic plan to match offers on Evan Fournier
    The Orlando Magic plan to match any offers restricted free agent Evan Fournier receives this summer, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

    Advice: Magic GM Ryan Hennigan has said re-signing Fournier will be one of Orlando's top priorities this summer and the draft night trade of Victor Oladipo spoke volumes to that commitment. Fournier averaged 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.0 treys last season and should be able to improve upon his fantasy value in 2016-17 with Oladipo now in Oklahoma City.

  • Wolves decline option on Damjan Rudez
    The Wolves are declining the option on Damjan Rudez.

    Advice: He saw some playing time late in the year thanks to leg injuries to Kevin Garnett and Nemanja Bjelica. Rudez only played in 33 games last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:40 pm
  • MEM declines team option on Lance Stephenson
    The Grizzlies have declined Lance Stephenson's $9.4 million team option.

    Advice: He'll be a free agent and should get interest from plenty of teams. Although, Stephenson was out of the rotation at times with the Clippers before the trade deadline. Thanks to numerous injuries to the Grizzlies, he put up averages of 14.2 points, 4.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.4 treys in his final 26 regular season games. Stephenson led the league in triple-doubles back in 2013-14, but he will likely just be a role player next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:23 pm
  • Spencer Dinwiddie to join Chicago's SL team
    Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to play for Chicago's summer league team.

    Advice: Dinwiddie was just acquired by the Bulls not even two weeks ago, so Chicago will want an early look to assess what they have in their newest player. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 am
  • Rose: Something special will happen w/ Knicks
    Derrick Rose said that he feels "something special" is going to happen with the Knicks.

    Advice: "I’m taking all this in," he said. "I feel like something special is going to happen. I really don’t know what but I feel like something special. I’m putting in all of the work. I think that when I look back at it the most time I had this much time to really focus on basketball was the year before I won MVP and I got a lot of time to really focus on myself, learn, take care of my body, and just try to better myself to try to become the best athlete I can become." Saying it is one thing, but doing it on the court—especially for Rose at this stage of his career—is entirely another. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 am
  • Report: Lakers could meet with DeMar DeRozan
    The Lakers could get a free agent meeting with DeMar DeRozan, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Advice: Although it was reported that DeRozan is focused on working out a new deal in Toronto and was not seeking meetings with other teams, Amick writes that the Lakers remain lurking in the background. Other teams known to have interest in DeRozan include the Clippers, Warriors, Heat, Knicks and Magic. To be clear, Amick makes it obvious that the Raptors should be considered in a class alone as the frontrunners for DeRozan's services. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 am
  • Bulls view E'Twaun Moore as priority in FA
    The Bulls view re-signing E'Twaun Moore as a priority in free agency.

    Advice: The Bulls have Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon, Spencer Dinwiddie and not a whole lot else at the point guard position, and Moore is also attractive because he can play both backcourt spots. After enjoying some sustained success in Chicago last season, Moore seems likely to be back in the Windy City. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 am
  • Bulls, Butler now on the same page once again
    Jimmy Butler is "excited" about Chicago's future and recently spent time with head coach Fred Hoiberg in Los Angeles.

    Advice: Hoiberg and Butler have been in "constant communication" since the season ended with Hoiberg stating that Butler is in a "great frame of mind." We still don't buy that Chicago wasn't shopping him on draft night, but it appears both sides are prepared to move forward with one another while harboring no ill will. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 am
  • Report: Hornets fearful of losing Jeremy Lin
    Although Charlotte would like to re-sign Jeremy Lin, the Hornets are "fearful" that they'll lose him in free agency, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

    Advice: The Hornets don't have Lin's Bird Rights, so that makes re-signing him more complicated than it otherwise could be. Lin is expected to meet with three other clubs as soon as free agency opens, and his priority this summer is to find a club that believes in him so he can find a real NBA home. "I've played six years in the NBA; I've played on five different teams. I've played for two D-League teams -- so seven cities in six years. I'm tired of boxes, I'm tired of moving companies, and I want to find a home," he said. "I want to see how good I can become," Lin said. "I'm 27, and an athlete's prime, or at least in the NBA, your prime is usually 27-30. That's when you kind of peak physically [and] mentally and that's where most players perform their best. So I'm going into my prime and I want to see how great I can be as a player, and that's my purpose in free agency -- so I'll just exhaust every opportunity to see which one will be the best for me." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 am
  • Report: Pelicans unlikely to re-sign Cole
    The Pelicans are not expected to re-sign Norris Cole, according to John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Advice: Cole only appeared in 45 games during the 2015-16 campaign, and he may be forced to take a short-term "prove it" type of deal from any interested club. Cole is unlikely to be a fantasy option unless he winds up in a paper-thin backcourt with playing time up for grabs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 am
  • Pressey expected to play w/ DET summer league
    Phil Pressey is expected to play for Detroit's summer league team.

    Advice: Pressey had been playing in the D-League to close out the 2015-16 season, and while his lack of size is always going to be an issue, he'll try to get at least a training camp invite with a strong showing this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:23 am
  • Rajon Rondo: Kings had too much 'tension'
    Rajon Rondo said the 2015-16 Kings had "too many distractions on and off the court."

    Advice: Talk about stating the obvious, are we right? Rondo didn't stop there, either. "The organization as a whole, I don't think was together completely. I think as a team you have to want the best for the next man beside you, and that wasn't the case with the Sacramento Kings," he said. Specifically of the relationship between DeMarcus Cousins and George Karl, Rondo said that there was "too much tension. I've never witnessed or experienced a thing like that in my 10-year career." Despite all of this, Rondo remains open to re-signing with the Kings in free agency. Reading between the lines, it seems like the interest between the two sides of a reunion is tepid at best. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:47 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 Yesterday, 6:43 am
  • Report: Pacers hopeful to extend Jeff Teague
    The Pacers traded for Jeff Teague with the intention of signing him to a long-term contract extension, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: It makes plenty of sense with Teague entering the final year of his current deal. It's unclear when negotiations may take place or what Teague could command, but Woj reports that Teague was "eager" to be moved and is "thrilled" to land with the Pacers. The veteran PG should receive the bulk of the playing time at his position, but his fantasy appeal isn't as attractive on the surface as it was during his Atlanta tenure. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:19 am
  • Report: Hawks, Schroder to talk extension
    The Hawks are "planning to negotiate" a potential contract extension with Dennis Schroder, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: With Jeff Teague having been moved to the Pacers, the runway is clear for Dennis "The Jet" Schroder to take off. In other words: Nintendo DS is about to be lit. Schroder has no real current competition for playing time at the position, though Atlanta should be expected to sign a veteran backup to serve behind their new starter. Schroder is a per-minute monster, averaging 19.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.7 3PM and 4.1 turnovers per 36 minutes during the 2015-16 campaign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:08 am
  • Report: Belinelli suffers jaw bone fracture
    Marco Belinelli has suffered a fracture of his jaw bone, according to Sportando.

    Advice: The report also states that Belinelli is expected to join training camp for the national team on Tuesday, so it's unclear how long he may be sidelined. After the Hornets just surprisingly traded the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft in exchange for Belinelli's services, Charlotte has to be hopeful this injury doesn't have a long-term impact. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:05 am
  • Jeremy Lin 'open' to a return to the Knicks
    Jeremy Lin said that he's "open" to returning to the Knicks, although he doesn't feel it's very likely that it will happen.

    Advice: "It’s not looking likely, because they just traded for Derrick Rose," Lin said. "But I will say, ever since I left I’ve been open to going back, and I still am. Never say never. That’s the one thing in the NBA. Never say never. So I’ve always been open, but right now, I’m not sure it’s the best timing." Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but the Knicks wouldn't be a great fit, particularly with playing time being one of the more important things for him. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:18 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (eye) requires hospital visit
    Marco Belinelli went to the hospital after being hit in the left eye during an exhibition game for Team Italy on Sunday.

    Advice: Currently there aren't any additional details regarding Belinelli's eye, although a hospital visit indicates that he could be dealing with a significant injury. A worst-case scenario here would likely be an orbital fracture, and while that would likely force Belinelli out of the Olympics, he'd still have plenty of time to recover for the 2016-17 season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:03 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (eye) exits exhibition game
    Marco Belinelli was forced to exit Sunday's exhibition game between Team Canada and Team Italy after suffering an apparent left eye injury.

    Advice: Belinelli not returning to the court for an exhibition game doesn't mean much, and there's really no way this injury will impact his status for the 2016-17 season. Belinelli is going to be a backup in Charlotte, so he won't be worth drafting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:00 pm
  • John Wall (knees) says he's ahead of schedule
    John Wall said that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgeries to his left and right knee, and he expects to be able to run at full speed by the end of July.

    Advice: "This week I can start doing a little bit of running, like jogging and stuff like that," said Wall. "Probably not until the end of July I can really start having full out sprints and stuff. Start really working out. I can start doing basketball drills and stuff like that. I can stand up now. I just can’t change directions and cut." Wall is on track to be ready for training camp, although he's made it clear that he will not rush his recovery. Either way, he should be good to go when the 2016-17 season kicks off, and he'll be worth an early-round selection on draft day. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:37 am
  • Vlade Divac open to re-signing Rondo
    Kings GM Vlade Divac said that he's open to the idea of re-signing Rajon Rondo this summer.

    Advice: The Kings may not have a choice with Darren Collison in legal trouble. They didn't add a guard in the first round of the draft and there aren't many good options at point guard in free agency apart from Mike Conley. Marc Stein of ESPN reported that Rondo has interest in re-signing with the Kings or playing for the Brooklyn Nets, so this could turn into a bidding war. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:39 am
  • Jabari Brown will play summer league for LAL
    Jabari Brown will play for the Lakers during the summer league.

    Advice: "I’m just trying to be positive and hope that something works out," Brown said. "I just need a team that believes in me." He spent last season in China before coming back to the states to play for the D-Fenders in the D-League. With a strong performance this summer, Brown could earn a spot on the Lakers' training camp roster. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:10 am
  • James Young likely to play in summer league
    James Young is expected to play in the summer league.

    Advice: His roster spot with the Celtics is in jeopardy because he hasn't improved much since joining the NBA, so this a huge summer for Young. The Celtics drafted Jaylen Brown with the third pick, so the path to minutes on the wings just got even more difficult for Young. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:30 am
  • Jazz might move Shelvin Mack?
    The Jazz might look to trade Shelvin Mack, Trey Burke and/or Raul Neto this summer.

    Advice: The Jazz have a serious logjam at point guard and this report makes sense because George Hill and Dante Exum (knee) will likely get the bulk of the PG minutes. The Jazz are still expected to exercise their player option on Mack for the 2016-17 season, but Mack likely has more trade value than both Burke and Neto. It's tough to imagine Mack having fantasy value if he stays in Utah. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:23 am
  • Alec Burks expected to be ready for camp
    Alec Burks (knee, ankle) is expected to be healthy for training camp.

    Advice: He had arthroscopic surgery to clean out debris in his left knee and ankle in early June, but it was said to be a minor procedure. Burks has had some tough luck with injuries in his career, and the addition of George Hill and return of Dante Exum (knee) from injury means that his minutes could take a hit next season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:18 am
  • 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 Sunday, 7:50 am
  • Olivier Hanlan will play in summer league
    Olivier Hanlan will play for the Jazz during the summer league.

    Advice: The former second round pick has one year left on his deal with Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania, but the Jazz will be able to see how much his game has developed during the summer league. The Jazz have plenty of depth at guard anyways, so Hanlan is not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:36 am
  • 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:36 pm
  • 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 Saturday, 1:52 pm
  • Derrick Rose says he's close to MVP form
    Derrick Rose said he feels like he's close to his MVP form.

    Advice: The 2011 MVP did admit saying this isn't going to do anything. He added he is hopeful to play the rest of his career with the Knicks. Rose said he wanted to thank the Bulls for trading him and that it hurt a lot for him to miss the post season. He did text Carmelo Anthony and added he's excited to play with Kristaps Porzingis. For fantasy, he's really going to have to improve after being one of the worst starting point guards in the NBA last year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:35 pm
  • 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 Friday, 9:40 am
  • 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
  • Report: Rondo interested in Kings and Nets
    Rajon Rondo has interest in re-signing with the Kings or playing for the Brooklyn Nets, a source told ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: Per Spears, Rondo also had some interest in joining the New York Knicks, but the Derrick Rose acquisition kills that potential suitor. Regardless of where Rondo signs his next contract, he's likely going to have to take another "prove it" kind of deal like the one-year contract he signed prior to the 2015-16 season with Sacramento. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:09 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
  • 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 Thursday, 4:26 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Jeremy Lin opts for unrestricted free agency
    Jeremy Lin declined to pick up his player option for 2016-17, making him an unrestricted free agent as of July 1.

    Advice: It was already reported that Lin would opt for free agency, so this merely confirms his decision. Addressing his priorities as a free agent earlier this month, Lin said, "To be happy, I need to consider a few things. Of course I am going to consider who is coaching the team, the team’s style, the players on the team and their chance of winning, as well as the on-court time I have and if I have a chance to start." A starting job might be feasible but there are copious teams in need of backcourt depth, so Lin should have no lack of suitors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 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
  • 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
  • Schroder Time: Dennis set for big bump in PT
    Dennis Schroder is expected to see a big bump in playing time with Jeff Teague traded to the Pacers.

    Advice: With Teague gone and the Hawks only getting the No. 12 pick back, Schroder should be looking at minutes in the upper 30s. Plus, this move makes it slightly less likely Al Horford is returning. Schroder put up a 31.6 usage rate in the postseason and was heavily involved while he was out there. In his six starts during the season, Schroder averaged 13.7 points, 3.8 boards, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. He's not a great shooter, but Schroder should post huge stats for DFS and points leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:37 am
  • Woj: Hawks trade Jeff Teague to Indiana
    The Hawks are sending guard Jeff Teague to the Pacers as part of a three-way deal.

    Advice: Here we go. The Hawks are getting back Utah's No. 12 pick and George Hill is headed to Utah. The Pacers now get a guard who is more capable on the ball. Teague's role should be diminished next to Paul George, so his overall output won't be as attractive. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:22 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
  • Bulls hoping to re-sign E'Twaun Moore
    The Bulls are hoping to re-sign E'Twaun Moore this offseason.

    Advice: While the Bulls would like to keep Moore in the fold, the 27-year-old is expected to receive plenty of interest as an unrestricted free agent this summer. Moore averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.2 three-pointers in 27.2 minutes per game after the All-Star break and could be worth a late-round flier if he lands in the right situation.

  • Rajon Rondo says that he is 'very healthy'
    In an interview with the Boston Globe, Rajon Rondo said that he is "very healthy."

    Advice: "Obviously it didn’t go the way we wanted it as an exit [missing the playoffs] but I was able to bounce back, I believe," Rondo said. "I am very healthy. I’ve been working extremely hard on my body and my game. I’m 30 years old and I feel great." Rondo battled through several different injuries down the stretch of the season and he did pick up some DNPs, but it's worth noting that the Kings were also tanking a little bit. Several teams around the NBA could use an upgrade at point guard, so Rondo should have a decent market in free agency. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 7:55 am
  • Report: Hawks will try to move up in draft
    Hawks GM Wes Wilcox hinted that he will try to move up in the NBA Draft.

    Advice: The Hawks have three selections in Nos. 21, 44 and No. 54, but they could also include Jeff Teague in a package in order to move up even higher. "It’s always important to have multiple picks because it gives you the opportunity to explore trades that may take you higher in the draft," Wilcox said. "So, yes, it certainly provides some flexibility that we will explore on draft night." Due to the position battle at point guard, a trade would likely benefit both Teague and Dennis Schroder in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 6:39 am
