  • MIL extends qualifying offer to Miles Plumlee
    The Bucks have extended a qualifying offer to Miles Plumlee, making him a restricted free agent on July 1.

    Advice: This will give the Bucks the ability to match opposing offers in free agency. Plumlee has previously said that he would like to re-sign with the Bucks, so it appears that the feeling is mutual. However, unless the Bucks trade Greg Monroe, there won't be many minutes available in Milwaukee's frontcourt. Rotoworld.com 21 minutes ago
  • Tim Duncan exercises option, future unclear
    Tim Duncan has officially exercised his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season, but his future is still unclear.

    Advice: Duncan is 40 years old and is seriously considering retirement, but this is still a good sign for the Spurs. The Spurs aren't going to give Duncan a timetable to make a decision, so it may be a while before we get a firm answer. If he does return for his 20th season in the NBA, he won't be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues after averaging just 8.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks last season.

  • Spurs extend qualifying offer to Boban
    The Spurs have extended a qualifying offer to Boban Marjanovic.

    Advice: This will make the big man a restricted free agent, giving the Spurs the ability to match any opposing offers in free agency. Boban showed some really nice upside in spurts last season, so this was a no-brainer for San Antonio. If Tim Duncan decides to retire, Boban could be looking at a larger role next season.

  • Joe Young will play in the summer league
    Joe Young will play for the Pacers during the summer league.

    Advice: With a strong showing this summer, Young could earn the backup point guard role behind Jeff Teague with Ty Lawson set to become a free agent. Young averaged 3.8 points and 1.6 assists in 9.4 minutes per game as a rookie, but he could be looking at minutes in the teens next season. Young will be joined on the summer league roster by Georges Niang, Rakeem Christmas, Glenn Robinson III and Shayne Whittington. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:30 pm
  • Dubs pick up team option on Shaun Livingston
    The Warriors have picked up their team option on Shaun Livingston.

    Advice: The Warriors could have saved $2.7 million by releasing Livingston prior to July 1, but that would make zero sense given how perfect of a fit Livingston is in the Warriors' system as Stephen Curry's backup. Livingston will now be on the book for $5.7 million next season, which is excellent value for a player of his caliber. This will not alter the Dubs chances of signing Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:14 pm
  • ORL gives Dewayne Dedmon qualifying offer
    The Magic have submitted a qualifying offer to Dewayne Dedmon.

    Advice: Dedmon is on the way to becoming a restricted free agent, meaning that the Magic will be able to match any offer he signs on the open market. Dedmon is nothing more than a backup big man, so his non-existent fantasy value will not change based on the jersey. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:09 pm
  • Report: Jazz interested in UFA Solomon Hill
    The Jazz have reportedly "heavily scouted" Solomon Hill and are interested in signing him as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: The feeling is reportedly mutual, although he's also been receiving interest from multiple teams around the league. With the salary cap set to spike to $94 million next season, Hill should be able to earn a deal in the $9 to $13 million range, which the Jazz could easily do as they're currently well under the cap. If Hill does wind up in Utah, he'd more than likely backup Gordon Hayward, so it wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops. The Jazz will also reportedly go after Luol Deng, but Hill is their preferred target. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:55 pm
  • Greg Stiemsma will play at summer league
    Greg Stiemsma will suit up for the Clippers' summer league squad.

    Advice: Stiemsma will try to showcase himself at summer league, but even if he does manage to secure a deal for the veteran's minimum, he'll be a non-factor in all fantasy leagues. The 30-year-old sat out the 2015-16 season and played in just 17 games for the Raptors during his 2014-15 campaign with all of his averages falling to the right side of the decimal point.

  • Cavaliers exercise option on Jordan McRae
    The Cavaliers have exercised their team option on G Jordan McRae.

    Advice: McRae's contract is not fully guaranteed, but he will now be on the books for $874K for the 2016-17 season. The 26-year-old posted a 36-point scoring effort towards the end of 2015-16, but isn't much of a fantasy option buried on Cleveland's bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:39 am
  • Richard Jefferson looking at 2-3 more years
    Richard Jefferson has decided that he will play another two or three more seasons, according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

    Advice: Jefferson has gone from the cusp of retirement to wanting to play until close to his 40th birthday. The Cavaliers are expected to try to re-sign Jefferson, but he won't provide much fantasy value as a veteran role player for the Cavs. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:32 am
  • Briante Weber will play in summer league
    Briante Weber will play for the Miami Heat in summer league.

    Advice: Weber signed a three-year deal with the Heat in April and will hope to carve out a role for himself in the team's 2016-17 rotation. While the 23-year-old is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues, he won't be much more than waiver wire fodder in most fantasy leagues next season. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:46 am
  • Report: Manu Ginobili leaning towards return
    Manu Ginobili is leaning towards returning for the 2016-17 season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

    Advice: Wojnarowski reports there is a strong belief around the league that Ginobili will be back for 2016-17. The report doesn't include where the 39-year-old is leaning towards playing after declining his player option with the Spurs, but it would be a shock to see him sign somewhere besides San Antonio. While he would help provide the Spurs with a veteran bench presence if he returns, Ginobili won't have any fantasy value in 2016-17. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am
  • Cedi Osman planning on NBA for 2017-18
    Cedi Osman is planning to join the Cavaliers for the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: Osman just finished his season in the Turkish BSL league with Anadolu Efes and is still planning on joining the Cavs after the 2016-17 season."I will go to the NBA after next season," Osman told reporters. While Osman has potential, he isn't on the fantasy radar just yet. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:41 am
  • Frank Kaminsky set to undergo minor procedure
    Frank Kaminsky (chest) will undergo a minor procedure to repair a small pocket of air in his chest wall.

    Advice: Kaminsky's recovery time is expected to be six weeks, which means he'll miss playing in Summer League. Frank the Tank averaged 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.1 minutes per game during his rookie season, but is morem of a late-round pick in fantasy drafts as he doesn't have a ton of upside.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • Duncan, Coach Pop to pitch Durant
    The Spurs are planning to have coach Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan board a plane to pitch Kevin Durant to join the Spurs in July.

    Advice: For the meetings with the Spurs and Warriors, Durant is expected to have his agent and family with him. Durant and Kawhi Leonard would make for quite the interesting pair, and perhaps the transformation of Kawhi is a great selling point. Of course, the Spurs have been a staple in the NBA playoffs for two decades. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:57 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 Thursday, 9:42 pm
  • Richard Jefferson says he'll play 1 more year
    Richard Jefferson has decided that he will not retire, and he will suit up for at least one more NBA season.

    Advice: Jefferson will very likely sign another one-year deal with the Cavs at the veteran’s minimum as he looks to repeat with Cleveland. He'll again provide the Cavs with a veteran presence in the locker room, while remaining a non-option in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:41 pm
  • Richard Jefferson backtracks on retirement
    Richard Jefferson said that he might not retire.

    Advice: "No, it’s is not set in stone," Jefferson said regarding retirement. "My teammates, [LeBron James] and those guys, keep trying to talk me out of it. They say I’m crazy if I retire, so we’ll see. It’s still up for debate." Jefferson announced after Game 7 that he was ready to hang it up, but the influx of money coming into the NBA may make him reconsider that statement, particularly when he'll have a chance to repeat with the Cavs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:10 am
  • Report: Manu Ginobili declines player option
    Manu Ginobili has reportedly declined to pick up his player option worth $2.94 million for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: Ginobili will be an unrestricted free agent, but at 39 years old, there's a chance he decides to retire. Ginobili's decision regarding his future in San Antonio will likely depend on what Tim Duncan (who also has a player option) does this offseason. Even if Ginobili does decide to suit up for one more season, he won't be worth drafting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:37 am
  • Richard Jefferson says that he will retire
    Richard Jefferson said after Game 7 that he will retire from the NBA.

    Advice: The 35-year-old veteran will retire as an NBA champion. "My teammates keep trying to talk me out of it, "Jefferson said. "And I'm just like, 'Guys, this has been the most stressful month of my life, I don't know.'" Jefferson turns 36 on Tuesday, but he proved during the Finals that he can still play at a high level with averages of 5.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 24 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 6:23 am
  • Manu Ginobili to decide by Wednesday
    Manu Ginobili has until Wednesday to decide whether or not to pick up his $2.94 million option for next season.

    Advice: To be clear, he can still sign a new deal with the Spurs if he decides to decline his option. Ginobili will be 39 years old in July, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he decided to retire. Keep in mind that his decision could also depend on what Tim Duncan decides to do with his option. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 7:36 am
