  • Knicks extend qualifying offer to Galloway
    The Knicks officially extended a qualifying contract offer to Langston Galloway, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Phil Jackson previously said that re-signing Galloway was a move that he anticipated, so it would be surprising to see the guard head elsewhere in free agency. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • Knicks don't give qualifying offer to Early
    The Knicks declined to give a qualifying contract offer to Cleanthony Early.

    Advice: That means he'll be an unrestricted free agent, but the Knicks should be able to keep him on a low-cost deal should New York have interest. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Cavs make Dellavedova a restricted free agent
    The Cavs have officially extended a qualifying contract offer to Matthew Dellavedova, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: The Cavs should have limited—at best—interest in bringing Delly back, and it seems likely that another team could value his services more than Cleveland does. He shouldn't be on the fantasy radar regardless of where he lands. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago
  • Carlos Boozer will attempt an NBA comeback
    Carlos Boozer has been working out in Miami for the past year in the hopes of making an NBA comeback.

    Advice: "Right now my body feels great. I feel terrific," said Boozer. "I have been working out hard all year, and I miss the game. I want to play again." Boozer said that he's hopeful he can latch on with a team in a mentorship role, meaning if he does sign somewhere, he'll have zero fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:20 pm
  • Report: Mozgov generating free agent interest
    Timofey Mozgov is drawing interest from the Cavs, Rockets, Heat, Warriors and Spurs, sources told ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

    Advice: Mozgov was absolutely awful in 2015-16 and it's likely that all of these teams view the big man as a low-rent insurance policy at best. He's not going to be on the fantasy radar unless something very unexpected happens. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:56 pm
  • Report: NO has strong interest in Evan Turner
    The Pelicans reportedly have "strong interest" in signing unrestricted free agent Evan Turner.

    Advice: Turner will reportedly be pursued by the Bulls, Knicks, Lakers, Celtics and Pelicans this offseason. He should be able to earn meaningful minutes with any of the aforementioned clubs, but the Celtics may present him with the best opportunity to produce as he already has a defined role with head coach Brad Stevens.

  • LAL give qualifying offer to Marcelo Huertas
    The Lakers have extended a qualifying offer to Marcelo Huertas.

    Advice: The 33 year old played well in his reserve role with the Lakers last season, but he's not a guy that will be a worthwhile asset in most leagues. The Lakers will be able to match any offer he receives on the open market, but it would be surprising to see that number go too far over the veteran's minimum. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:41 am
  • Lakers extend qualifying offer to Tarik Black
    The Lakers have extended a qualifying offer to Tarik Black, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Black isn't going to be a major priority for any clubs, but he could receive some interest once the major players are off the board. He won't be anything more than a backup wherever he winds up, so his fantasy value will be nil in most formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:39 am
  • LAL decline to give qualifying offer to Kelly
    The Lakers have declined to extend a qualifying offer to Ryan Kelly.

    Advice: He's just not very good, and it would be surprising to see him on a different team next season. Kelly will be an unrestricted free agent, but don't expect him to sign anywhere until the major players are off the board. He'll be a non-factor in nearly all fantasy leagues.

  • Tyler Johnson could fetch up to $10 million
    Tyler Johnson could fetch up to $10 million per season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: Johnson will be a restricted free agent this summer, so it will be interesting to see if the Heat match any eye-popping offer sheet the 24-year-old receives. While this figure looks askew, $10 million per season for Johnson isn't actually that crazy considering the big jump the salary cap is taking this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:29 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas get qualifying offer
    The Rockets have extended a qualifying offer to Donatas Motiejunas, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

    Advice: The move will make a D-Mo a restricted free agent and it would be a surprise to see him and up anywhere besides Houston next season. While Motiejunas can be a valuable bench piece, he doesn't do enough to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:49 am
  • Salah Mejri undergoes minor knee procedure
    Salah Mejri underwent a minor knee procedure on Thursday

    Advice: Mejri's surgery was for right knee debridement and was performed by Dr. Daniel Worrel. The surgery had been described as a minor clearing, so Mejri should have no trouble being ready for training camp. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:35 am
  • Cleanthony Early dealing with strained hammy
    Cleanthony Early (hamstring) is not practicing with the Knicks summer league team on Thursday.

    Advice: While this isn't huge news, each day he can't practice and play prevents the 25-year-old from developing. Early is listed as day-to-day and should be able to play in summer league, but he isn't on the fantasy radar right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:28 am
  • Heat reportedly shopping Josh McRoberts
    The Miami Heat are exploring a trade of Josh McRoberts, according to Ethan Skolnick of the Miami Herald.

    Advice: The McBob Experiment hasn't gone as well in Miami as it did in Charlotte and Skolnick reports the Heat have been looking to move McRoberts and may need to attach a pick from a third team to facilitate a deal. While McRoberts is still just 29 years old, he won't be much of a 2016-17 fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:42 am
  • Nets believed ready to make run at Jeremy Lin
    The Nets are interested in making a run at free agent Jeremy Lin, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

    Advice: The Hornets are hopeful that they'll be able to re-sign Lin, but Bonnell reports the Nets may "hard-sell" the 27-year-old. Lin was a solid bench option for the Hornets last season, but would see a boost in fantasy value if he lands on a Nets squad that appears ready to part ways with Jarrett Jack. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:21 am
  • Bismack Biyombo could be NYK backup plan
    The Knicks are reportedly interested in Bismack Biyombo if they are unable to sign Joakim Noah.

    Advice: The Knicks are reportedly the front-runners to land Noah, but Biyombo is thought to be the Knicks Plan B if they are unable to land the former Defensive Player of the year. Biyombo's breakout playoff performance will be tantalizing for fantasy owners, but we'll have to wait and see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value for 2016-17.

  • Dellavedova will suit up for Team Australia
    Matthew Dellavedova will compete for Team Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Advice: "I'm 100 percent committed to Rio," Dellavedova said. Dellavedova is going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he's reportedly received interest from the Pistons and Bucks. He won't be a fantasy factor regardless of where he winds up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 am
  • Salah Mejri to undergo minor knee procedure
    Salah Mejri will reportedly undergo a minor procedure on his knee on Thursday.

    Advice: A source of ESPN's Tim MacMahon described the surgery as "a minor clearing," so it sounds like Mejri will be undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. He will not be playing for Tunisia at the Olympics, but he's expected to make a full recovery by training camp. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:17 am
  • Knicks may be interested in Timofey Mozgov
    The Knicks are reportedly interested in Timofey Mozgov, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: Mozgov is an unrestricted free agent this summer and Begley reports there is mutual interest between he and the Knicks. The 29-year-old could provide the Knicks with a lower-cost alternative to Joakim Noah, but he won't have much fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues no matter where he signs.

  • 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 Monday, 9:42 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."

  • 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.

  • Motiejunas says back still isn't 100 percent
    Donatas Motiejunas said he likely won't play for Lithuania in the Olympics because his back still isn't 100 percent.

    Advice: "The specialists told me that it is necessary to strengthen it and I have to make specific exercises," Motiejunas said. "I still hope to play for Lithuania but I am aware that I may not play for the National Team." His back has been a major red flag for a while now and it's not a great sign that it's still bothering him two months after the Rockets' season ended. If anything, the durability issues should keep his price down as he enters restricted free agency. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:01 am
  • Report: Bulls are interested in Evan Turner
    According to Sporting News, the Bulls are interested in Evan Turner.

    Advice: Turner has previously said that he would like to re-sign with Boston, but he might be a little too expensive for Danny Ainge. We already know that the Knicks are also interested in Turner, but both New York and Chicago would be decent spots for him to have fantasy value. According to Mercury News, the Warriors could also have some interest in Turner. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:07 am
  • Jackson expects to re-sign Galloway, Thomas
    Phil Jackson said that he anticipates re-signing Langston Galloway and Lance Thomas during free agency.

    Advice: These aren't the kind of players that will command significant interest on the open market, so chances are they will remain in New York. Neither Galloway, nor Thomas will be much of a factor in fantasy hoops next season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:23 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
  • Report: DET, MIL interested in Dellavedova
    The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

    Advice: Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting that both the Pistons and Bucks sent scouts to the Cavs playoff games, and he believes that those scouts were analyzing Dellavedova's game. Both the Bucks and the Pistons could use a reliable backup point guard, and Windhorst is reporting that they are prepared to offer Dellavedova something in the $10 million range as an unrestricted free agent. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, but Delly won't be a fantasy option on either club. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 am
  • MIA extends qualifying offer to Tyler Johnson
    The Heat have extended a qualifying offer to Tyler Johnson, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Miami will now be able to match any contract that Johnson signs as a free agent, and chances are that he'll be back with the Heat next season. Johnson is coming off an injury riddled campaign in which he only made it through 32 games, so he might want to sign a short term deal with how low his value is right now.
