Player Notes

  • 76ers more likely to trade Okafor than Noel
    According to Chad Ford of ESPN, the 76ers are more likely to trade Jahlil Okafor than Nerlens Noel this summer.

    Advice: The 76ers have a serious logjam in their frontcourt and it will likely get even more crowded this summer when they draft either Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram. "I think that there's a very high likelihood, that whether it's to move up in the draft or use them to grab a free agent in a sign and trade or just to a trade, that you will not see the Nerlens Noel-Jahlil Okafor pairing at the start of next season," Ford said. "I think that they'll gauge the interest of both players." A trade would likely benefit both Noel and Okafor, so this will be one of the most interesting storylines of the summer.

  • Stephen Curry scores 31; Warriors win Game 5
    Stephen Curry looked healthy during a Game 5 120-11 victory over the Thunder on Thursday, making 9-of-20 from the field for 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, five steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: With all the rumors swirling around Curry saying he's only at 70 percent, he looked much better. After the game, coach Steve Kerr said Curry "looked like 91 percent" in what was his best scoring output in this series. A big difference for Curry was his on-ball plays as he was able to get to the rim more often with his eight shots within three feet. He'll have Friday off, so maybe he'll be at 95 percent for Game 6 in OKC as the Warriors look to tie the series at three. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Draymond Green bounces back in 39 minutes
    Draymond Green got it going during a Game 5 win over the Thunder on Thursday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal, four blocks and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He turned it around after four sub-par games during this series, especially in the last two. The bad news is that Green picked up his fifth technical foul, so two more and he will be suspended for one game. This is on top of Green possibly being suspended for another flagrant foul. After the lineups with Green at the five were smoked in the last two, he played only one of the first 46 minutes at center tonight -- the Warriors went small to prevent threes late. The move to the four should help in Game 6. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Mo Buckets: Speights scores 14 in nine mins.
    Marreese Speights filled it up in just nine minutes with 14 points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Advice: In true Mo Buckets fashion, he had a 48.1 usage rate and a 76.1 true shooting percentage. Speights' output off the bench was very helpful while the starters were resting. He won't play a bunch, but he sure can fill it up in minimal playing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Harrison Barnes scores six in 25 minutes
    Harrison Barnes played just 25 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with six points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He likely would've played less if the Warriors didn't have a decent lead late. Coach Steve Kerr gave some of Barnes' first-half minutes to Andrew Bogut, which should continue going forward. Barnes' best postseason for scoring has been his rookie season back in 2013 and it's not close, so the downward trend is discouraging. The 23-year-old wing hasn't helped his earning potential this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
