Player Notes

  • R.J. Hunter welcoming competition for spot
    R.J. Hunter is embracing the competition he's facing to make Boston's final roster.

    Advice: "So I’d rather have it that way, because now I have no reason not to be on my toes on every possession and at every practice," he said. "So I’ll try to use it to my advantage." The second-year guard admitted that he was "rushing sometimes" in his rookie season and added that he "wasn't comfortable with the shots and didn't know where my shots were coming from." He's nowhere near a lock to make the team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:15 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins to be focus of SAC offense?
    Without Rajon Rondo at PG, the Kings may run the offense through DeMarcus Cousins more frequently.

    Advice: The Kings lack of a true starting PG and limited offensive options may lead to Cousins having even more offensive responsibility heaped on his shoulders. Zach Harper suggests that new coach Dave Joerger may attempt to utilize Cousins in much the same way he did Marc Gasol in Memphis, with his center as a facilitator of the offense. Cousins actually led the NBA in usage rate last season (35.4%), so it's difficult to imagine a significant spike, but it's certainly possible. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 am
  • Nets encouraging Brook Lopez to shoot 3's?
    According to Nets reporter Anthony Puccio, Brook Lopez has been encouraged to expand his range out to the 3-point line next season.

    Advice: The belief is that if Brooklyn big man Justin Hamilton can stretch the floor by knocking down 3-pointers at a consistent and efficient clip, then "Lopez will be allowed to wander around the paint or out near the perimeter... and will have the green light to do anything on the offensive end, including shoot three-pointers." Lopez attempted a career-high 14 three-pointers last season, but made only 2 of those 14 attempts (14.3). If Brook added a 3-point shot to his offensive arsenal, his value would increase dramatically. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:00 am
  • Kevin Seraphin holding out hope for NBA deal
    David Pick is reporting that Kevin Seraphin has rejected several offers both from China and Europe and he's still waiting for some offers from the NBA.

    Advice: Seraphin, an unrestricted free agent, recently hired Bouna Ndiaye of Klutch Sports as his agent. Seraphin played well occasionally last season in New York, but was far too inconsistent to earn regular playing time. The majority of NBA teams have filled most of their roster spots by this point, so Seraphin may have a hard time securing a guaranteed contract in the States. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 am

  • Bryce Cotton signs to play in Turkey
    Anadolu Efes has announced the signing of free agent guard Bryce Cotton.

    Advice: Spain's Baskonia and Russia's Khimki were rumored to be in the mix for the services of Cotton, who played summer league with the Atlanta Hawks last July. Cotton averaged 3.8 ppg in eight games with Phoenix and Memphis last season. The Hawks, who are thin at PG, were reportedly considering inviting him to training camp. Atlanta will have to continue searching for PG depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:25 am
