  • James Young could be traded?
    James Young could be used as a trade chip for his $1.8 million contract next season.

    Advice: Basically, the Celtics could just use that money to make a trade work financially. Young had a bad Summer League and really hasn't played well since he was drafted. A change of scenery would probably be good for Young. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:56 pm
  • Deron Williams says he will be ready for camp
    In an interview with NBCDFW.com, Deron Williams (sports hernia) said that he will be ready in time for training camp.

    Advice: "Feeling really good. It's healing pretty well, I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said. "I'll be ready to go definitely by the time training camp rolls around." He added that he's already jumping and running, and said that his next checkup is August 1st. Williams re-signed with the Mavs on a one-year, $10 million deal and should be team's starting point guard once again. However, he's more of a late-round pick after averaging 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game last season.

  • Olshey calls Crabbe a foundational player
    Portland GM Neil Olshey said that Allen Crabbe is a "foundational player."

    Advice: "We all saw what he was able to do last season when he was given the opportunity," Olshey said. "Those opportunities will increase as we go forward. He's an incredible young player in this league." It sounds like Olshey expects Crabbe's role to grow, but that may be tough after the Blazers signed Evan Turner to a four-year deal and he obviously won't be taking minutes away from C.J. McCollum.

  • Hunter, Young to fight for last roster spot
    R.J. Hunter, James Young, Ben Bentil and John Holland are "in position to fight" for Boston's final roster spot according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe.

    Advice: The Celtics gave guaranteed deals to Tyler Zeller, Gerald Green and Demetrius Jackson on Saturday, so Boston's roster is nearly complete. None of those guys would crack the rotation on opening night anyways, so fantasy owners can ignore this. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:08 am
  • Cuban: Seth Curry is an 'instant-offense guy'
    Mark Cuban said he views Seth Curry as an "instant-offense guy" off the bench.

    Advice: "He's been in situations where only at the end of last season did he really get a chance to start and get minutes and when he got those minutes he did really well," Cuban said. "He can shoot, obviously. He can create his own shot, quick release. He's a knock-down 3-point shooter and we thought that was something we needed." Curry should be able to find a stable role off the bench in Dallas after signing a two-year, $6 million deal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 am
  • LAC, CHI and DET linked to Kevin Martin
    The Clippers, Bulls and Pistons are interested in Kevin Martin according to Amico Hoops.

    Advice: Martin was a shell of himself last season, averaging 9.3 points on 37.2 percent shooting. The 33-year-old veteran would likely have a limited role off the bench on all three of those teams. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 am
  • Pelicans sign Tim Frazier
    The Pelicans have officially signed Tim Frazier.

    Advice: "We were really impressed with how well Tim performed last season," Pelicans GM Dell Demps said. "He stepped into our rotation late in the season and immediately made a positive impact. Tim is a player our coaches want to coach, and our players want to play with him. We are happy to have him back." Frazier had a strong finish to the 2015-16 season, but he won't have much value right out of the gate while Jrue Holiday is healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 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 Yesterday, 6:55 am

  • David Stockton signs 3-year deal
    David Stockton has signed a three-year deal with Croatian team Cedevita Zagreb.

    Advice: It's unclear if there is an NBA out clause in the deal, but the 25-year-old may not get another shot in the NBA for a long time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:06 am
  • Paul George returns to Team USA, scores 18
    Paul George made his return to Team USA action on Friday, scoring 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: It was his first Team USA televised game since his horrific leg injury. George had a couple breakaway dunks and he justifiably took it easy on those. After the game on NBATV, he did add it was "eerie" for him to get back on the court and said there were a lot of emotions. George looked better than expected last year, especially early in the season. Even with the new players, he's still expected to have a great season with the vast majority of his minutes coming at small forward. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Arron Afflalo eager to prove himself
    Arron Afflalo said he's never been more eager to prove his worth as a player.

    Advice: "I can say this is probably the hungriest I’ve ever been in my life, just to prove myself as a player, not for selfish reasons, but just to show that I can really be a part of a team and help them go to the next level," Afflalo said. "Sacramento wasn’t too far from making the playoffs. That’s my goal, just to work hard and get these guys on the right train and get us into the playoffs." He signed a two-year, $25 million deal, so he's likely going to be the starting shooting guard on opening night. Regardless, he's a low-end asset at best after averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.3 triples last season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:21 am
  • Tyler Harvey signs in Italy
    Tyler Harvey signed a deal to play for Auxilium Pallacanestro Torino in Italy.

    Advice: He was the 51st pick in the 2015 Draft and spent last season in the D-League with the Erie BayHawks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:41 am
  • Derrick Rose calls the Knicks a 'super team'
    Derrick Rose said that the expectations in New York are high because the Knicks are a "super team."

    Advice: "They're high," Rose said. "I mean, with these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they're trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that." He's probably getting way ahead of himself with that comment, but at least he's feeling confident again and he said that he has been "rejuvenated" by his move to New York. Rose also said that he's been working out six days a week and that he's focused on improving his mid-range shot this summer as well as his conditioning. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 am
  • Pelicans sign G Langston Galloway
    Pelicans sign G Langston Galloway.

    Advice: The terms of Galloway's deal are currently unavailable, but the 24-year-old will now join the Pelicans as a backup guard. While Galloway has looked good at times during his short NBA career, he's too inconsistent to consider drafting in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:06 am
  • Pacers sign G Aaron Brooks
    Pacers sign G Aaron Brooks.

    Advice: As expected, the Pacers have officially signed Brooks to a one-year, $2.5 million deal. Brooks will have to battle Joe Young for backup point guard minutes, so his fantasy value is extremely limited as long as Young and starter Jeff Teague are healthy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:42 am
  • Paul George no longer thinks about leg injury
    Paul George said that now that he's fully recovered from his surgically repaired left leg, there's "no thought" in his mind that he's "limited" in any way.

    Advice: "Now I know I'm healthy, I know I'm OK, I know I'm 100 percent," George said. "I'm back to being myself. It's no limitations. It's no thought in my mind that I'm limited to something. I kind of just feel like all the chains are off of me and I'm free now." George also added that playing for Team USA "means a lot," and he feels getting back on the court for the US National Team will be a sort of "redemption" for himself after suffering that gruesome leg injury two years ago. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:30 am
  • Aaron Brooks headed to the Pacers
    Aaron Brooks has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Pacers.

    Advice: The Pacers starters look a lot different this year, but they do need some depth. Brooks should battle Joe Young for the backup point guard minutes, but they both won't have fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:56 am
  • Paul George will work on off-ball play in Rio
    Paul George said that he'll work on improving his off the ball play during the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Advice: "Now it's about learning how to play off the ball," said George. "I think that's where guys take that next step. Learning how to space the floor. Learning how to cut. Learning how to play on the boards; battle the boards. I think just playing off the ball is where guys take that next step." PG-13 was a top-15 stud in 9-cat leagues during the 2014-15 season, and he'll make for a fine late-first, early-second round selection on draft day. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:35 am
  • James Young on thin ice?
    Celtics Summer League coach Jamie Young said he wasn't happy with how James Young played on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was on the injury report due to a knee issue, but Young only played seven minutes on Wednesday. The 2014 draft pick has made no progress and has already been leapfrogged by basically every first-round pick since. Young was more of a defense-first guy, but his offense hasn't made any noteworthy improvements. The Celtics might look to deal him. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 7:43 pm
  • Derrick Rose working out with Knicks players
    Derrick Rose was recently spotted working out with Brandon Jennings, Kristaps Porzingis and Sasha Vujacic in Los Angeles.

    Advice: Players work out with each other all the time, but this one is important as it shows that the newly signed Knicks are already working on their chemistry. Jeff Hornacek said he hopes that Rose can get Porzingis some easier looks under the basket, and he hopes the pair can be a threat in the pick-and-roll, so it's nice to see them working together this early. For what it's worth, Rose reportedly looked "explosive" during his L.A. workout. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 9:32 am
