  • 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
  • Wizards interested in Darrell Arthur
    The Wizards are interested in Darrell Arthur.

    Advice: It makes sense with the Wizards likely going to need a backup behind Markieff Morris. Arthur had a very productive season with 70 games played and Nuggets coach Mike Malone trusted him a lot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:05 pm
  • Felicio expected to play for Chicago SL team
    Cristiano Felicio is expected to play on Chicago's summer league team.

    Advice: Felicio showed some intrigue in short bursts with the Bulls last season, but he's going to have to show a whole lot more if he wants to enjoy a real role in the rotation in 2016-17. There is intriguing potential here, but it may be a while before it could be fully realized. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 am
  • Portis expected to play in summer league
    Bobby Portis is expected to play in summer league.

    Advice: If Chicago winds up moving on from Taj Gibson, the Free Bobby Portis movement is about to be restarted with an exclamation point. We could be looking at a breakout season from Portis, but he needs to work on enjoying sustainable success at this level. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:25 am
  • 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
  • Report: Bismack Biyombo wants to stay w/ Raps
    Bismack Biyombo wants to re-sign with the Raptors, a source told USA Today's Sam Amick.

    Advice: According to Amick, Biyombo is willing to be patient while Toronto figures things out with DeMar DeRozan, the team's top priority in free agency. However, it's one thing to take that stance now, and it's entirely another when interested clubs are throwing as much as $15-$17M annually in your face. If DeRozan is willing to take a slight discount, it could greatly help in allowing for Biyombo's Toronto return. We'll soon learn how it will all play out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 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
  • Ekpe Udoh now angling for return to the NBA
    Ekpe Udoh is angling for a return to the NBA.

    Advice: Udoh has set a deadline "early in July" to decide on his future. He'll be picking from a mix of six NBA teams and "two elite Euroleague clubs" in Fenerbahce and CSKA Moscow. "It’s definitely a possibility to come back to the NBA," Udoh told The Vertical. "I can see myself fitting back today. I have lowered my weight to 240, so I’m even more mobile. I protect the rim, get out in transition and I’m able to play with any team and guard one through five." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:59 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."

  • Report: Cady Lalanne to play in summer league
    Cady Lalanne is expected to play on San Antonio's summer league team.

    Advice: Lalanne, the No. 55 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft out of UMass, is likely to spend additional time in the D-League. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 am
  • Report: Pelicans likely to let Perkins walk
    The Pelicans are likely to allow Kendrick Perkins to depart via free agency, according to John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Advice: Perkins is an absolute non-factor when it comes to fantasy hoops. Unless, of course, you play in a points league where scowls and technicals are two of the categories. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:22 am
  • Report: DET likely to move on from J. Anthony
    The Pistons are not expected to pick up the $2.5 million option on Joel Anthony's contract for the 2016-17 season, according to Keith Langlois of NBA.com

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy did not mention Anthony by name when recently discussing the upcoming season, so Langlois took that as evidence that the big man is unlikely to return. Detroit already has Andre Drummond, Aron Baynes and the recently acquired Cameron Bairstow at center, so Anthony as an insurance policy is probably no longer necessary. For what it's worth, SVG added that he'd like to acquire two additional big men during the offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:13 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.

  • 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
  • Darrell Arthur opts out of contract
    Darrell Arthur will not pick up his player option for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: He would've made $2.9 million next season, but he'll hit the open market. Arthur actually turned in a solid season with 70 games played and a career-high 21.7 minutes per game. Coach Mike Malone trusted Arthur quite a bit, but the Nuggets have more depth coming their way. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:29 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
