  • Report: Kevin Durant will meet with six teams
    Kevin Durant will meet with the Thunder when free agency begins on Thursday, followed by meetings with the Warriors, Clippers, Spurs, Celtics and Heat.

    Advice: Durant could sign a multi-year deal this summer or maximize his long-term salary by opting for a one-year contract with an eye toward another big salary-cap increase next offseason. The Knicks and Wizards are among the many teams that have yet to secure a sit-down with the summer's most coveted free agent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Report: Mavs set meeting w/ FA Mike Conley
    Free agent Mike Conley will meet with the Mavericks on July 1, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

    Advice: Plenty of teams are interested in Conley, the summer's premier unrestricted FA point guard, and his meeting with Dallas doesn't imply that they have an advantage in signing him. The Grizzlies are expected to "aggressively recruit" him as their No. 1 priority during free agency, but may be balking at a five-year offer which only they can make. Memphis faces heavy competition from potential suitors like the Rockets, Nets and Bulls, in addition to the Mavs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Report: Knicks favored to sign FA Joakim Noah
    The Knicks are reportedly a "big favorite" to sign free agent Joakim Noah.

    Advice: According to ESPN's Marc Stein, multiple teams vying for Noah feel that he's likely to sign with the Knicks, and the Washington Post reports that he could earn approximately $18 million per season. New York is desperate for a starting-caliber center after trading away Robin Lopez in the deal for Derrick Rose, and Noah reportedly chafed in a reserve role for Chicago last season, so the pairing makes sense. From a fantasy perspective, the Knicks would be an ideal landing spot for Noah. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • GSW give Harrison Barnes his qualifying offer
    The Warriors have officially extended a qualifying offer to Harrison Barnes, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: This was a mere formality, and the real question is whether Golden State will match a potentially over-sized offer sheet from another team. The Warriors will also pursue free agent Kevin Durant on July 1, so the timing of Durant's decision looms large over Barnes' contract situation. The 76ers reportedly want to be "serious suitors" for Barnes this offseason, and plenty more teams will be vying for his services. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • Dwyane Wade's camp talks to Spurs & Mavs?
    Dwyane Wade's representatives have reached out to the Spurs and Mavericks, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

    Advice: A recent report suggested that talks between Wade and the Heat have "stalled," possibly because the Heat won't commit to a big contract before Kevin Durant is officially ruled out of contention. It's important to note that, according to Windhorst, "Some of those teams [reached by Wade's reps] are skeptical, thinking that this is a leverage play, thinking they've been down this path before." Wade has played for one franchise throughout his career and it would be surprising to see him anywhere but Miami next season, though anything is possible. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:12 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic drops 35 pounds this offseason
    Jusuf Nurkic has already lost 35 pounds this offseason

    Advice: Wow. Nurkic added he's feeling stronger this summer thanks to the weight loss. If anything, the weight loss should help his durability, which has been his biggest concern. Nurkic was capable of playing big minutes even at his old playing weight with 39 minutes in the season finale. Given his usage and upside for blocks, Nurkic is going to be a popular target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:49 pm
  • Bucks request waivers on Inglis and O'Bryant
    The Bucks will waive Damien Inglis and Johnny O'Bryant.

    Advice: He showed signs of promise early on, but injuries and inconsistent play hurt Inglis big time. He will likely get a camp invite with another team. Inglis matched his career high in scoring with 10 points in his last game of the season, so he is going out on a high note. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:23 pm
  • Report: Charlotte extends QO to Troy Daniels
    The Hornets have extended a qualifying offer to Troy Daniels.

    Advice: Daniels will be a restricted free agent, and he'll likely see a slight pay increase with the salary cap spiked to $94 million. Daniels is capable of putting up the occasional high scoring outing, but he's not consistent enough to grab the attention of those in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:24 am
  • Report: BOS gives qualifying offer to Zeller
    The Celtics have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Tyler Zeller, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Zeller is woefully inconsistent, and it's tough to see him landing in a situation where he's not a backup. He won't be a realistic fantasy option in most settings, regardless of where he signs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 am
  • LeBron James likely to sign a short-term deal
    LeBron James will likely sign another two-year deal with an opt out on Year-2 this offseason.

    Advice: James declined to pickup his player option for the 2016-17 season, but he did so for financial reasons, and there is absolutely no indication that he has thought about leaving Cleveland. If James does indeed sign another short-term contract with the Cavs, it'll set him up to sign the largest contract in NBA history next summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:33 am
  • 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
  • Portland extends qualifying offer to Harkless
    Portland has extended a qualifying offer to Moe Harkless.

    Advice: Harkless will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but he's said that he would prefer to re-sign with the Trail Blazers as he "loved" playing for Terry Stotts. Harkless showed flashes during the 2015-16 season, but inconsistency remains an issue. It'll be interesting to see what kind of deal Harkless can command on the open market with the salary cap set to skyrocket to $94 million. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • Report: NYK will meet with Chandler Parsons
    The Knicks are reportedly likely to have a face-to-face meeting with unrestricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

    Advice: The Mavs have made Hassan Whiteside and Mike Conley their primary free agent targets, so they could potentially lose Parsons during the early goings of free agency. With Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis on the Knicks' roster, Parsons would be a rather strange fit, and it wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 am
  • Report: Durant's first meeting will be w/ OKC
    Kevin Durant's first meeting as an unrestricted free agent will be with the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Thursday.

    Advice: OKC will get the first crack at making a pitch to this year's top free agent, after which, Durant will fly to New York to meet with the Warriors on Friday. Durant also has meetings scheduled with the Spurs, Heat, Celtics and Clippers, and the Knicks are reportedly still in the mix to land a face-to-face sit-down. However, the Lakers reportedly will not earn a meeting with KD, nor will the Wizards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:50 am
  • Report: Lakers not giving up on Kevin Durant
    The Lakers have not given up in their pursuit of unrestricted free agent Kevin Durant.

    Advice: The Lakers have yet to secure a meeting with Durant, but the Los Angeles franchise is confident they will be able to get a face-to-face sit-down with the former-MVP. The Lakers will have roughly $60 million in cap space, so they will try and convince Durant that they can sign another top-tier free agent to join him in Los Angeles. Still, after whiffing on the big-name free agents for the past three years, it would be surprising to see the Lakers nab Durant. KD reportedly has a meeting set up with the Warriors on Friday afternoon, and they remain one of the most likely clubs to be able to lure him away from OKC. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:07 am
  • Report: ATL & BOS to meet with Dwight Howard
    The Hawks and Celtics will reportedly be the first two teams to have a face-to-face meeting with unrestricted free agent Dwight Howard.

    Advice: Howard will reportedly meet with as many as five teams during free agency, but it's extremely unlikely he returns to Houston with Mike D'Antoni now running the show there. The Heat could also be in the mix to sign D-12 if they're unable to retain Hassan Whiteside. Aside from horrific free throw shooting, Howard should be able to put up quality statistics wherever he lands. For what it's worth, the Celtics reportedly will not aggressively pursue Howard, but they're open to signing him at "the right price." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 am
  • Report: San Antonio will not waive Boris Diaw
    The Spurs reportedly intend to keep Boris Diaw on the roster.

    Advice: San Antonio could shave off $4 million off next year's payroll if they waived Diaw, but that is not something the organization is interested in doing. Diaw is only someone to look at in DFS on the days the Spurs rest their studs, but he's a non-option in most season-long settings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:37 am
  • Report: SA not all that high on Mike Conley
    The Spurs interest in unrestricted free agent Mike Conley has reportedly been overstated.

    Advice: Conley will still receive plenty of interest during free agency, but apparently the Spurs won't be one of those teams. The Mavs, Rockets and Nets will all be making a bid for Conley's services, while the Grizzlies will do everything they can to retain him. Conley will reportedly give Memphis the last word, but he wants to see the team upgrade the roster before committing to a long-term deal with the franchise that brought him into the league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:14 am
  • LeBron James will decline his player option
    LeBron James will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: It's an easy decision for James considering the salary cap will jump up to $94 million next season. James recently said that he isn't planning on leaving Cleveland, but signing another two-year deal with an opt-out clause in 2017 would make the most sense since the cap will expand again. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:39 pm
  • Dwyane Wade is 'open' to outside offers?
    According to ESPN, contract talks have stalled between Dwyane Wade and the Heat.

    Advice: The report adds that Wade will consider outside offers, so it doesn't like it's a lock that the three-time champion will return to Miami. The Heat have nine free agents and $40 million to spend, but it's not clear if Wade is willing to take a discount so that Miami can pursue targets such as Kevin Durant and Hassan Whiteside. Things are going to be very interesting on July 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:23 pm
  • Report: Kevin Durant will not be coming home
    The Wizards have reportedly moved on from the idea of signing Kevin Durant this offseason.

    Advice: The "coming home" narrative reportedly "doesn't resonate" with Durant, and there will be no meetings between Durant and the Wizards. Durant does have meetings scheduled with the Warriors, Spurs, Thunder, Heat, Clippers and Celtics, with the Heat, Thunder and Warriors believed to be the frontrunners in the KD-sweepstakes. The Hawks and Lakers are also pushing for a meeting with Durant, but neither of those teams are likely to sway the superstar. Wherever Durant does sign, it's believed that he'll sign a two-year deal with an opt out to put pressure on the franchise to continue to perform. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:57 pm
  • Report: 76ers will go after Harrison Barnes
    The 76ers reportedly plan to be "serious suitors" for Harrison Barnes during free agency.

    Advice: Barnes will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Warriors will be able to match any offer he signs on the open market, but Philly could potentially pull him away from the Oakland franchise with a poison pill kind of contract. Barnes' preference would be to remain in Golden State, but he'd have much more opportunity to produce in Philly. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:01 pm
  • Harrison Barnes says he wants to return to GS
    Harrison Barnes said that he would like to re-sign with the Warriors as a restricted free agent this summer.

    Advice: Barnes also addressed the rumors that Kevin Durant could wind up in Golden State via free agency, which would essentially conclude Barnes' days with the Dubs: "Oh man, that’s part of the business. [Durant's] a great player. If that’s the move they want to make, you know, hopefully, it works out... It’s always something, right?" The Warriors will have 72 hours to match any offer Barnes signs on the open market, but he'll be a low priority for the squad with the team going full bore after Durant. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:47 am
  • Kevin Durant likes trade for Victor Oladipo
    Kevin Durant told reporters that he's a fan of the Thunder's trade for Victor Oladipo.

    Advice: The Thunder pulled a widely-applauded swap of Serge Ibaka for Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis and Durant joined the crowded applauding the move. "It’s a good move," Durant told reporters. "I like Oladipo. He’s a good buddy, a friend of mine, and I’m definitely going to miss playing with Serge." While Durant becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, the Thunder are believed to be the favorite to re-sign him and his approval of their recent trade certainly won't hurt their case. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:58 am
  • Hawks pushing for meeting with Kevin Durant
    The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly pushing hard for a meeting with unrestricted agent Kevin Durant.

    Advice: The Hawks, Lakers, and Knicks are all pushing for a sit down with Durant, but none of the three teams have been able to make it on Durant's short list just yet. Atlanta is hoping the presence of Grant Hill in the team's ownership group will help secure a meeting with the superstar, but the Thunder are still a favorite to re-sign Durant so the Hawks chances at landing KD are looking extremely slim at the moment. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:48 am
  • Report: Hawks mulling run at Dwight Howard
    The Hawks are considering making a run at free agent Dwight Howard, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Advice: Stein reports the Hawks are also interested in Kevin Durant (who isn't?), but the team has not been granted a sit down with KD so a run at Howard seems much more likely. Howard could serve as a contingent plan for his hometown team if Al Horford bolts in free agency and would continue to provide solid fantasy value for owners who are willing to stomach his abysmal free throw percentage. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:51 am
  • KD wants to have fun playing ball
    In an interview with ESPN's Marc Stein, Kevin Durant said the most important part of his choice in free agency is to "have fun playing ball."

    Advice: Everyone is after Durant with teams ready to move players to clear cap space. Durant loves to play with Russell Westbrook, so the Thunder are still the favorites to land him. He is likely to have a decision before July 9, so several teams will be putting other players on the back burner. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:02 pm
  • Report: Noah, Knicks share mutual interest
    The Knicks and Joakim Noah have a mutual interest in one another, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

    Advice: Noah and New York flirting with one another is the worst kept non-secret of the NBA offseason so far, so expect the reports to continue flowing until a resolution comes to light. Per Berman, the Knicks have a "very high interest" in Noah, while Joakim is "eager for at least a sitdown with the Knicks." At this point, it appears Phil Jackson's new-look starting five could very well include Noah as Robin Lopez's replacement. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:27 am
  • Report: Kevin Durant to meet w/ MIA, LAC, BOS
    Kevin Durant has added free agent meetings with the Heat, Clippers and Celtics to his agenda, a source told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

    Advice: The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski previously reported that KD's reps were working to secure meetings with all three aforementioned teams, so this isn't a big surprise. In addition to Miami, Los Angeles and Boston, Durant is already known to be meeting with Golden State, San Antonio and Oklahoma City. Per Broussard, Durant is "considering meeting with the New York Knicks, but has no plans to talk to his hometown Washington Wizards." The Los Angeles Lakers are not expected to receive a meeting with KD, either. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:52 am
  • Team USA roster announced for 2016 Olympics
    The Team USA roster for the 2016 Olympics has been officially unveiled.

    Advice: Joining Kevin Durant will be Jimmy Butler, DeAndre Jordan, Kyle Lowry, Harrison Barnes, DeMar DeRozan, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Paul George, Draymond Green and Carmelo Anthony. Despite a handful of notable players passing on the opportunity to represent their country, Team USA's roster remains strong and should be considered a clear favorite this summer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:28 am
  • No meeting set between Kevin Durant & Knicks
    Kevin Durant has not scheduled or agreed to a meeting with the Knicks, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

    Advice: The Knicks are "optimistic" that they'll get a chance to meet with Durant, but so far his only proposed sit-downs are with the Thunder, Warriors, Heat, Clippers, Celtics and Spurs. Whether or not the Knicks ultimately secure a meeting with Durant, they're an extreme long-shot to sign the summer's most coveted free agent. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:51 pm
  • Report: Joakim Noah doubtful to stay w/ Bulls
    Joakim Noah isn't interested in re-signing with the Bulls, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Advice: According to the report, Noah has "no trust in the direction of the [Bulls'] front office," and his priorities are being on a winning team, having the opportunity to start and finish games, and finding a franchise that will support his charity work with the Noah's Arc Foundation. The 31-year-old center will have plenty of suitors this summer but fantasy owners should be wary of him following two disappointing, injury-riddled seasons. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:21 pm
  • Report: Joakim Noah is the Knicks' top target
    According to the New York Post, Joakim Noah is the Knicks' top target in free agency.

    Advice: We already know that Derrick Rose is going to recruit him, and New York obviously needs a starting center after trading away Robin Lopez to the Bulls. Noah has also been linked to the Wolves, but the Knicks have plenty of cap space and it sounds like they are going to aggressively pursue him on July 1. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:57 am
  • Grizzlies to 'aggressively recruit' Conley
    The Grizzlies are expected to "aggressively recruit" Mike Conley and make him their first priority for free agency, according to general manager Chris Wallace.

    Advice: This is obvious. The good news for Memphis is that the Knicks are out of the running with Derrick Rose heading to NYC. The Grizzlies should get some competition from the Bulls, Spurs and Dallas -- the Mavs have also said Conley is a high priority for them. The Grizzlies have been confident for months, so they're the favorites. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:20 pm
  • Harrison Barnes will play for Team USA
    Harrison Barnes has made the Team USA roster for the Rio Olympics.

    Advice: He had a disappointing 2015-16 season, but this should be a great learning experience for the 24-year-old forward. The Warriors have been heavily linked with Kevin Durant and Nicolas Batum this summer, so Barnes' future with the franchise is still up in the air. Don't be surprised if a team offers him a max contract this summer with the salary cap rising to $94 million. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:56 am
  • Wizards will not offer Noah a max deal
    The Wizards will not offer Joakim Noah a max contract, according to J. Michael of CSN.

    Advice: There was an earlier report today saying the Wizards were considering it, but it didn't make sense given their roster and the market value of Noah. The Wizards will likely look for a cheaper backup behind Marcin Gortat. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:42 pm
  • Derrick Rose wants to play with Joakim Noah
    Derrick Rose said he wants to play with Joakim Noah.

    Advice: "I want him," Rose said. "He knows that. I think his family knows that. I think everyone knows that." This isn't exactly a secret and the Knicks may have been after Noah even before the Rose deal. Plus, losing Robin Lopez makes getting a center a top priority for them. There is a report of the Wizards in on Noah, but they don't need him nearly as much as the Knicks do. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:24 pm
  • Report: DAL not committed to Chandler Parsons
    The Mavs are reportedly willing to take the risk of letting Chandler Parsons sign with another team while they pursue Mike Conley and Hassan Whiteside during free agency.

    Advice: If the Mavs are able to land both Conley and Whiteside during free agency, they won't have enough money to realistically re-sign Parsons, and that's apparently a risk they are willing to take. Parsons had a down year this past season as he recovered from modified micro-fracture knee surgery, and was then required to again go under the knife for arthroscopic surgery on the same knee later in the year, but he's still sure to command plenty of interest on the open market. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • LeBron James officially opts out of Olympics
    LeBron James has informed Team USA that he will not participate during the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Advice: After what James just accomplished, it's far from surprising to see him sit out the 2016 Olympic Games. He'll use the offseason to rest his body up as the Cavs attempt to repeat. James ranked No. 9 overall in 9-cat leagues after the 2015-16 season, so he'll be more of a late-first round target on draft day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:12 pm
  • LeBron James leaning towards no Olympics
    LeBron James told reporters that he is leaning towards not playing in the 2016 Summer Olympics, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Advice: James just finished a taxing 2015-16 season, so his inclination to pass on the Olympics comes as no surprise. The 31-year-old is all but a lock to return to the Cavaliers to defend their championship in 2016-17 and will assume his normal spot as a first-round option fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:07 am
  • Knicks may make a run at Joakim Noah
    There are members of the Knicks organization who would like to sign Joakim Noah, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: Noah should receive some interest as an unrestricted free agent now that he's recovered from a shoulder tear and would make a lot of sense for the Knicks. The 31-year-old's best days are behind him, but he's just two years removed from winning a Defensive Player of the Year Award and will be worth a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 am
  • Dwight Howard could end up with Knicks
    Dwight Howard is rumored to be interested in signing with the New York Knicks.

    Advice: It's unclear how much interest the Knicks have in Howard as signing him to a big deal would eat up most of their cap space, but they could use his defense after dealing Robin Lopez to the Bulls. Howard should receive plenty of interest as an unrestricted free agent and can still be a valuable fantasy asset for owners willing to put up with his poor free throw percentage. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:17 am
  • LeBron James says he'll re-sign with the Cavs
    LeBron James said that he has "no plans" to leave the Cavs as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: "I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates," James told cleveland.com, moments before he boarded a float at The Q for the Cavs' championship parade through downtown Cleveland. "Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I'm happy. I've got no plans to go nowhere at this point." James will likely opt out of his deal, and it'll be interesting to see if he signs another one-year with an opt out, or if he decides to just sign a long-term max-contract. Either way, he's not going anywhere. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 am
  • 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
  • Report: HOU wants to retain Dwight Howard?
    The Rockets have reportedly tried to convince Dwight Howard to remain in Houston.

    Advice: GM Daryl Morey spoke with Howard's agent, and Rockets' CEO Tad Brown spoke directly with Howard expressing his support, however, Howard still decided to opt out of his deal. The Rockets value Howard's defense and they're trying to sell him on Mike D'Antoni's offensive scheme, but with how things went with D-12 and D'Antoni in Los Angeles, it would be nothing short of shocking if he decided to remain in Houston. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 am
  • Chandler Parsons will decline player option
    Chandler Parsons will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: He would've made $16 million next season if he opted in, but his decision will make him an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Despite coming off knee surgery, Parsons is still going to get a ton of interest due to the rising salary cap and the Mavs will have to give him a significant raise in order to keep him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:31 pm
  • Report: Dwight Howard declines player option
    Dwight Howard has reportedly declined his player option for the 2016-17 season, and he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    Advice: The Mike D'Antoni hire essentially queued the end of Howard's tenure with the Rockets, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of deal the big man can earn on the open market. Howard is now 30 years old, and his knees and back have started to become an issue, although with the infusion of money coming into the NBA he should be able to earn something close to the max. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:01 pm
  • Harrison Barnes hasn't thought about future
    Harrison Barnes said he's yet to give much thought to his upcoming free agency this summer.

    Advice: Barnes will hit the market as an unrestricted free agent this summer and is expected to cash in despite a lackluster NBA Finals. "I haven’t put a lot of thought into it," Barnes said when asked about free agency. While the 24-year-old could end up back in Golden State after passing on a four-year, $64 million offer before the season, he's more likely to be playing for a new team next season and will see his fantasy value balloon if given the opportunity to shoulder more of the load. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:11 am
  • LeBron James leaning toward skipping Olympics
    According to The Vertical, LeBron James is leaning toward not competing at the Olympics.

    Advice: He hasn't informed Team USA of his decision yet, but team officials are planning to be without him. It makes sense for James to get some rest after a grueling NBA Finals, and he will likely join a long list of superstars who won't play in the Olympics such as Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and James Harden. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:37 am
