  • Jones chose Pelicans to have larger role
    Terrence Jones said he chose to sign with the Pelicans in order to earn a larger role.

    Advice: "I wanted an opportunity to play for a team that is young and defining itself, but could still compete right away," Jones said." I wanted a larger role, where I could really compete and help a team win." Jones disappeared in Houston last season, but now he has a fresh start alongside former Kentucky teammate Anthony Davis. "We won a lot of games together and I know what he’s capable of," Jones said of Davis. "We both work well together and we’ve already got a great chemistry and friendship." Jones is only 24 years old and should be able to have a bounce-back campaign if he can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am
  • Meyers Leonard will be re-evaluated Aug. 1
    Meyers Leonard (shoulder surgery) said he will be re-evaluated on August 1.

    Advice: He recently said that he's hoping to be ready in time for the start of the season, but his timetable will likely be updated after his checkup. Leoard did admit that he will be cautious with his return, which makes sense because he just signed a four-year, $41 million deal. Unfortunately for Leonard, minutes won't be easy to find in Portland's frontcourt next season, especially if they re-sign Moe Harkless as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:35 am
  • 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 Yesterday, 9:31 am
  • 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.

  • 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 6:12 am
  • Alan Williams will make the team?
    General manager Ryan McDonough said chances are Alan Williams will be on the Suns to start the season.

    Advice: "We told him to plan on being around our group and keep coming in to work out," McDonough said. "He’s a native Phoenician so he’s here most of the time. He spent a ton of time in the gym and I think you see the improvement in his body and game as well."He was terrific in Las Vegas, earning an All-NBA Summer League 2016 First Team nod and leading the event in rebounding. He's still unlikely to make the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:03 pm
  • Chris Andersen signs with the Cavs
    Chris Andersen has officially signed with the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He turned 38 years old on July 7, so this could be his last shot at another title. The Cavs could use some depth up front with Timofey Mozgov moving on to the Lakers, but Andersen can only play minutes in the teens at best. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:16 am
  • Cady Lalanne signs in China
    Cady Lalanne has signed a deal to play for Zhejiang Banks in China.

    Advice: He was the Spurs' 55th pick in the 2015 Draft and he spent last season playing in the D-League. He didn't play well during the summer league, so he probably won't be joining the NBA anytime soon. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:06 am
  • Report: D.J. Stephens gets camp invite to MEM
    D.J. Stephens has reportedly agreed to a partially guaranteed two-year deal with the Grizzlies.

    Advice: It's just a camp invite, and with Memphis being pretty set at the power forward position, there's almost no way he makes the regular-season roster. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:37 pm
  • Willie Reed working to improve his offense
    Willie Reed said that he will spend time this summer honing his skills on the offensive end.

    Advice: "Obviously my defense is ahead of my offense at this point," said Reed. "So I’ve been working extremely hard to make sure I get better on the offensive end." Reed could be looking at some increased opportunity next season if Chris Bosh (blood clots) is forced into an early retirement, but if Bosh and Hassan Whiteside are healthy, Reed will be an irrelevant name in fantasy hoops.

  • Manu Ginobili dealing with sore calf
    Manu Ginobili is currently dealing with a sore calf.

    Advice: Ginobili wrote on his blog that he may only play a few minutes with Team Argentina in Friday's exhibition against Team USA, but this doesn't sound like anything serious. While Ginobili will be back with the Spurs this season, he won't have any fantasy value at 39 years old. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 am
  • Nuggets sign G/F Mike Miller
    Nuggets sign G/F Mike Miller.

    Advice: Miller has officially signed a multi-year deal with the Nuggets and will continue to serve as a veteran option of the bench for Denver. After playing just 47 games in 2015-16, the 36-year-old won't carry any fantasy value into the 2016-17 season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:13 am
  • Pelicans sign F Solomon Hill
    Pelicans sign F Solomon Hill.

    Advice: Hill had already agreed to a deal with the Pelicans and has now officially signed his four-year, $52 million deal. Hill has some upside at just 25 years old, but he's been too inconsistent to be anything more than a late-round flier in 2016-17 fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:08 am
  • Report: Alonzo Gee signs with Pelicans
    Alonzo Gee has signed with the Pelicans, according to Mike Scotto of Sheridan Hoops.

    Advice: Gee's one-year deal is $1.4 million and will bring the 29-year-old to New Orleans as bench depth. While Gee will help provide the Pelicans with a veteran presence off the bench, he won't have much fantasy value in 2016-17. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:39 am

  • James Anderson officially signs in Turkey
    James Anderson has officially signed with Darussafaka Dogus of Turkey.

    Advice: Anderson's deal with Darussafaka is for two years and could signify the end of the 27-year-old's NBA career. After averaging just 3.5 points per game with the Kings last season, Anderson is now firmly off the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:09 am
  • Alonzo Gee finalizing deal with Pelicans
    Alonzo Gee is finalizing a one-year deal with the Pelicans.

    Advice: Gee's representatives and the Pelicans are hoping to finalize the deal in the next day. Due to the Pelicans having so many injuries late in the year, Gee played 25.9 minutes per game in March. He did suffer a quad tear to end his season on Mar. 28. He'll likely just be emergency depth.

  • Mike Miller agrees to terms with Nuggets
    Mike Miller has agreed to a two-year, $5 million-plus deal with the Nuggets.

    Advice: The Nuggets really don't need Miller and he's basically just a roster filler. Miller only played in 47 games last year, making just 35.5 percent from the field. He won't be in the rotation to start the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:57 pm
  • Cavs pick up Chris Andersen
    The Cavs agreed to a deal with Chris Andersen for the veteran minimum.

    Advice: The Cavs have lost some of their depth up front, so Andersen might get some minutes in some spots. Birdman hasn't been very durable and just turned 38 this month, so he's not going to be a difference maker for the Cavs. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 4:02 pm
  • Report: Manu Ginobili inks 1-year deal w/ SA
    Manu Ginobili has officially signed a one-year deal worth $14 million with the Spurs.

    Advice: If that $14 million seems a bit high to you, it's because it is. The 76ers reportedly made a strong push for Ginobili, offering him a two-year guaranteed deal that would pay him $17 million during Year-1, so San Antonio was forced to raise their offer in order to retain the Spurs-lifer and 39-year-old veteran. Antics aside, this will more than likely be Ginobili's final year in the league, so don't be the guy that drafts him out of nostalgia. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 3:03 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 Jul 14, 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 Jul 14, 2:43 pm
  • Report: Ginobili working on 1-year deal w/ SA
    Manu Ginobili and the Spurs are discussing a one-year deal in the $10 million range, according to sources of Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Advice: That's a nice payday for the 39-year-old. He won't be worth drafting in most leagues next season. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 11:17 am
  • 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.
