  • Jordan Hamilton taking his game to Turkey
    Jordan Hamilton has signed with Tofas Bursa in Turkey.

    Advice: Hamilton got some run with the the Pelicans late last season after their roster was decimated by injuries, but he's going to have to prove capable of doing something other than scoring if he wants to stick in the NBA. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:56 am
  • 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 Yesterday, 8:16 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 Saturday, 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 Saturday, 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 Saturday, 6:12 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
  • Devyn Marble receiving overseas interest
    Devyn Marble is receiving interest from teams in Europe and China.

    Advice: Marble only played 28 games last season and will likely head overseas after being waived by the Clippers. The 23-year-old averaged just 2.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 2016-17 and won't have any fantasy value even if he lands on an NBA roster. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:55 am

  • Doug McDermott talks about the 2nd unit
    Doug McDermott said the Bulls second unit should fit coach Fred Hoiberg's style.

    Advice: "People have been questioning bringing in D. Wade and [Rajon] Rondo, saying they don't fit Fred's style," McDermott said. "But we have four or five guys coming off the bench who really do fit Fred's style and we can gel with those other guys." Earlier in the interview, he also mentioned Bobby Portis, Cris Felicio, Denzel Valentine and Jerian Grant. In other words, chances are those five will be coming off the bench while Nikola Mirotic gets the start. Just keep an eye on McDermott for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:47 pm
  • 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.

  • Motiejunas says his back no longer an issue
    Donatas Motiejunas said that he's been "working out," and his back has not been giving him any problems.

    Advice: Motiejunas spent most of the 2015-16 season recovering from back surgery, but he's now reportedly 100 percent healthy and pursuing his next contract. "I talked to my agent today, in the morning, and he told me that he's been talking with the Rockets the last couple of days," Motiejunas said. "Both sides are talking and trying to get an agreement." Motiejunas said that his preference would be to return to Houston, but a larger contract from another team could change his mind. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:56 am
  • Gerald Henderson will be a leader for 76ers
    Gerald Henderson said he'll be comfortable stepping into a leadership role playing for a young 76ers team.

    Advice: "I always felt like on all levels I’ve been a leader," said Henderson, 28. "So that won’t be difficult for me. The biggest things I bring are my leadership, my defense, and my energy and stuff that every night they can expect from me." Henderson will provide with a much-needed veteran presence in the Philadelphia locker room, and he should receive his fair share of minutes as the unquestioned starting two-guard, but his only real contribution to fantasy teams will be his scoring.

  • 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
  • Report: Clippers will waive Devyn Marble
    The Clippers will reportedly waive Devyn Marble before his contract becomes guaranteed.

    Advice: The Magic were going to do the same thing, but the Clippers decided to send them C.J. Wilcox and some cash so that they themselves could save some cap room. Marble has been a negligible factor in fantasy hoops throughout the entirety of his two-year career, and that's unlikely to change. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 10:46 am
