• Jeff Green aims to play more consistently
    Jeff Green hopes to play more consistently as a leader for the Celtics this season.

    Advice: Jeff Green hopes to play more consistently as a leader for the Celtics this season. "Just coming into camp in good shape, new focus, and a lot of people say it's a different vibe they feel from me now," Green said. "I just have to transfer it on the court, continue to get better as a player, and find a way to stay consistent. I think that's been my biggest fall throughout my career." Green led Boston in scoring last season but his aforementioned inconsistency was a big reason he returned late-round fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Turner expected to be signed Sept. 30
    Evan Turner is officially expected to be signed on Sept. 30.

    Advice: The Celtics have 18 guaranteed contracts, so there are some other factors here. Turner is definitely going to be with the Celtics this season and it's just a formality. He's already working out at Harvard and should be with the second unit this season. There's little reason to draft him in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Andray Blatche could rejoin NBA in March
    Andray Blatche signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers on Saturday for $2.5 million.

    Advice: There are a couple interesting things: The Wizards won't be able to get any money from the deal due to amnestying his contract earlier in his career, and Blatche could wind up back in the NBA in March. He'll join Jordan Crawford on the CBA powerhouse squad. Rotoworld.com

  • Ty Lawson says he's four pounds overweight
    Ty Lawson said on Saturday that he's about four pounds overweight.

    Advice: He said he will work it off before training camp, so it's not a big concern. Fellow Tarheel point guard Raymond Felton gets this storyline once every couple months, but Lawson's conditioning hasn't come into question. He'll be fine and can be viewed as a low-end No. 1 point guard in fantasy. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Taylor says he's healed from injury
    Jeff Taylor said he has healed from his Dec. 20 Achilles tear.

    Advice: He's back with the team after a visit home to Sweden. Taylor wasn't very efficient with Charlotte last season, but he was more aggressive. He'll likely compete for minutes in the second unit for the Hornets. Unless something happens to Gerald Henderson or Lance Stephenson, he won't be on the fantasy map in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Turner working out with Harvard
    Evan Turner has been working out with the Harvard basketball team this week.

    Advice: The extent of the workout isn't known, but he's apparently eager to start playing in Boston. Turner has been a horrible per-36-minute guy from a fantasy angle, so there's very little reason to target him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ray McCallum is likely to lose minutes
    Ray McCallum is likely to lose minutes to Ramon Sessions.

    Advice: The Kings were swinging and missing through most of the offseason, but Sessions will serve as a key ball-handler in their rotation. McCallum wasn't very efficient and isn't the best long-range shooter, so he'll likely fall behind as the third-string point guard. Plus, rookie Nik Stauskas will hurt Ray Mac's chances as a combo guard. Rotoworld.com

  • Police arrest burglary suspect of PG's home
    Police have arrested a man in connection with an Apr. 28 burglary at the home of Paul George.

    Advice: A diamond-studded NBA All-Star ring worth about $15,000, a $700 Flux watch, a pair of red Jordan 4 Toro tennis shoes and $20 were missing from the home, according to an IMPD report. There were no signs of forced entry on the night of Indiana's Game 5 loss at home to the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    The Clippers invited Jared Cunningham to training camp.

    Advice: He was with the Kings last season and on their championship Las Vegas Summer League roster, averaging 6.8 points, 1.2 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.4 steals. He'll have a tough time making the LAC roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Kings sign Ramon Sessions to two-year deal
    The Kings have agreed to terms with Ramon Sessions on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

    Advice: He should have signed long ago and the Kings were somehow able to sign him and didn't spend too much with their bi-annual exception. He'll likely compete in a backup role with Ray McCallum, who didn't shoot the ball well despite his heavy dose of minutes late in the season. It also wouldn't be a shock to see Sessions unseat Darren Collison at some point. He's still not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to a lower upside and a lower usage rate next to Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. McCallum can be removed from your standard-league draft board while Collison has some added risk in the later rounds. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Rose said he learned from DeMar
    Terrence Ross said he worked out with James Harden and also worked out with DeMar DeRozan this summer.

    Advice: He said he had a lot of one-on-one workouts and said he worked on his skills. Ross is expected to start, but he has James Johnson behind him on the depth chart this season. He was much more effective on his two-point shots after the break last season, so if he can improve on those even more he could be in for a big 2014-15 season. Rotoworld.com

    Andray Blatche is finalizing a deal to play with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China.

    Advice: The Flying Tigers also signed Jordan Crawford, so they should have a fun brand of basketball. Blatche was in talks with multiple NBA teams, but he's likely getting more money from the CBA powerhouse. We'll pass along any official news as it becomes available. Rotoworld.com

  • Aaron Gordon wants you to buy his jersey
    Aaron Gordon tweeted that he wants everyone to buy his jersey for his 19th birthday.

    Advice: After being drafted, he said he picked No. 00 because it represents how wide he wants the fans' eyes to be when they see the Magic play. Gordon is an athletic freak, but he'll really have to work on his shooting before he becomes a reliable fantasy factor in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Middleton doesn't know what his role is
    Khris Middleton said he doesn't know what his role is this season.

    Advice: He is probably going to be the odd man out with the Bucks' two best assets playing the same position as him. Middleton was one of the team's best offensive players last season and shot an impressive 41.4 percent from beyond the arc, but his minutes will likely take a significant hit in 2014-15.

  • Larry Sanders planning on wearing goggles
    Larry Sanders said that he is planning on wearing goggles this season.

    Advice: He had an eye injury end his 2013-14 season, which was a complete disaster. Sanders is apparently in a position battle with John Henson and the team's new ownership may have some commitment issues. He broke out in 2012-13 with 2.8 blocks per game, so he could be worth a late-round pick in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten says he wants to wear throwbacks
    Tony Wroten said he wants the 76ers to wear some of their throwback jerseys this season.

    Advice: Shockingly, he didn't say he wanted to wear tight jerseys with sleeves. The team has worn the same jerseys since 2008 and Wroten is referencing the older jerseys from 1998 to the mid-2000s made famous by Allen Iverson. He'll get most of his minutes as a backup and won't have much fantasy value because of his sub-par shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant received JAX-WAS game ball
    Kevin Durant received a game ball from owner Daniel Snyder following Sunday's Jaguars at Redskins game.

    Advice: He also sat in Snyder's box during the win, and he posted a picture on Instagram of his custom-made Nationals baseball jersey. The Wizards have to love all this support Durant is showing to his hometown, but it obviously doesn't mean he is coming to D.C. in 2016. Rotoworld.com

  • Taj Gibson tweets he likes coming off bench
    Taj Gibson tweeted on Friday night that he likes coming off the bench.

    Advice: There was a report that he likes coming off the bench earlier this week, which has been a big storyline all offseason. Gibson was probably going to start in Chicago after his breakout season in 2013-14, but the addition of Pau Gasol put the kibosh on that idea. He will probably have less fantasy value this year compared to last year. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut expected to do 5-on-5
    Andew Bogut (ribs) has been doing some 5-on-5 workouts in recent weeks at a Warriors facility.

    Advice: He didn't participate at the FIBA World Cup, but he's been working out since June. Bogut played 27.5 minutes per game before the All-Star break last season, but his playing time dropped to 23.7 per game after that. The Warriors will likely keep him around 24 minutes per game in 2014-15 and he has a lot of injury risk, so he's only a late-round pick in standard drafts. Rotoworld.com

    David Lee is expected to be healthy for training camp.

    Advice: He had a minor procedure for a core muscle injury back in July, but was expected to be ready in August. Lee has been stuck with all sorts of injuries and the Warriors may give some of his minutes to Draymond Green to help keep him fresh for the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyson Chandler upset by bad press out of NY
    Tyson Chandler is upset about insinuations that he was a problem in the Knicks' locker room last season.

    Advice: "I did nothing but try to help the culture there the three years I was there," Chandler said Friday. "You can say I didn't live up to whatever or you didn't like the way I played or anything. But to ever question who I am and the type of leader I am in the locker room, I don't even know where that came from." Owner Mark Cuban, GM Donnie Nelson, and coach Rick Carlisle all cited Chandler's outstanding leadership as a reason as to why they brought him back to Dallas, and Chandler will look to put last year's disappointing season behind him. Chandler will make for a solid selection in the later rounds of drafts as a rebounding specialist, and field goal percentage booster. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut: 'My body feels great'
    Andrew Bogut has been taking full contact during the Warriors open gym scrimmages this month, and his fractured rib that sidelined him for the end of the 2013-14 season has fully healed.

    Advice: "My body feels great," said Bogut, who returned to working out in mid-June after his fractured rib healed. "All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a p*** and avoid contact at all costs.. I'll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I'll get a knock." Bogut was impressive while on the court last season, averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game, however he is a huge injury risk as he only made it through 67 games. The last (and only) time Bogut made it through a full season was in 2006, so he's only worth a gamble in the very late rounds of your draft. Rotoworld.com

  • Gallo wants to play 5-on-5 before camp
    Danilo Gallinari (knee surgery) said he is hoping to play 5-on-5 before training camp.

    Advice: He said he's been working out every day and he's played some golf and tennis this offseason. Gallinari wasn't able to play at all in the 2013-14 season and should be able to get some reps in at training camp. He's a solid option to draft in the last couple rounds of a standard fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green wants to be a leader this season
    Jeff Green said he is "trying to take the next step to becoming a leader" with the Celtics this season.

    Advice: He's already been in Boston with his new teammates and seems to be committed to improving from his disappointing 2013-14 season. Green was one of the most inefficient players in the NBA last season, but he should have the opportunity to be the team's leading scorer. He's a high-ceiling target late in drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Gibson not happy coming off the bench
    Taj Gibson is not thrilled with the possibility of coming off the bench next season.

    Advice: Gibson, along with Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah will make up one of the best front courts in the NBA. However, when it comes to the starting lineup, there will be an odd-man out. Aggery Sam of CSN Chicago reports that Gibson is not happy with a reserve role. "Privately, Gibson isn't too thrilled with the prospect of continuing to be a reserve, according to multiple people familiar with the situation, but the upbeat, team-first player values winning and chemistry too much to make it an issue or distraction." Potential fantasy owners should not shy away from Gibson; he still holds a ton of fantasy value as a favorite of coach Tom Thibodeau. Rotoworld.com

    Kevin Durant watched Sunday's Jaguars at Redskins football game in owner Dan Snyder's suite.

    Advice: He wore a Robert Griffin III jersey and was spotted in the team shop. Durant is from the Washington area and has answered plenty of questions about joining the Wizards in a couple seasons, so his Sunday appearance will probably require him to answer even more questions. H Rotoworld.com

    Andray Blatche has officially been barred from playing on the Philippines national team in the 2014 Asian Games.

    Advice: Blatche was allowed to play for the Philippines in the FIBA World Cup, but the rules of the Asian Games require a player to have three years of residency before representing a country on the court. He reportedly returned to the U.S. in early September, in the expectation that he'd negotiate a contract with the Heat, but so far there have been no reports of an agreement. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Taylor in Sweden for personal reasons
    Jeff Taylor (Achilles) is dealing with a personal matter in Sweden and he is not with the team.

    Advice: He did some workouts in Las Vegas Summer League and it sounds like he's going to be close to 100 percent. Coach Steve Clifford said Taylor is fine medically and he's just concerned with continuity with his new teammates. Taylor looked terrific before tearing his Achilles last year, but the addition of Lance Stephenson takes away some minutes on the wing. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyson Chandler feels he's a better player now
    Tyson Chandler stated during a recent interview that he feels he is returning to Dallas a better player.

    Advice: "I think I'm better in understanding the game mentally. Physically, I'm in an incredible place. I haven't felt this good in a long time," said Chandler. Chandler struggled with injuries last season, only suiting up for 55 games, and that will again be a concern this season. However, he is a guy that can really gobble up the boards (he averaged 9.6 rebounds per game in a down year last season), and that will be his role with the Mavericks. Chandler's a rebounding specialist that shoots a high percentage from the field and chips in a few blocks, and he'll be a serviceable selection in the later rounds. Rotoworld.com

  • Several teams interested in Ramon Sessions
    Several teams are interested in Ramon Sessions and he could be closing in on a deal, according to Basketball Insiders.

    Advice: The Rockets had previously shown interest in the 28-year-old, but seem to have moved on by acquiring Jason Terry via trade. Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists with the Bucks and Bobcats (now Hornets) during the 2013-14 season, but is more of a deep league fantasy option unless he can somehow find himself a starting job.

  • Paul George defends Ray Rice, then apologizes
    Paul George took to Twitter to defend recently suspended NFL running back Ray Rice and then quickly apologized after deleted the tweet.

    Advice: We'll give George credit for not claiming his account was hacked, but there is no defending his early morning tweet. "I don't condone hittin women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't trippin.. Lets keep it movin lol let that man play," George said via his Twitter account (@Yg_Trece). "If you in a relationship and a woman hit you first and attacking YOU.. Then you obviously ain't beatin HER. Homie made A bad choice! #StayUp." George later deleted the tweets and added an apology, but it's going to take some time (and probably more apologizing) until he lives this one down. Rotoworld.com

  • Bucks asst GM says Larry Sanders part of plan
    Milwaukee Bucks assistant general manager David Morway said in an interview that Larry Sanders is part of the team's long-term plan.

    Advice: Sanders had a very forgettable and injury-plagued 2013-14 season after breaking out in 2012-13, and it sounds like the Bucks haven't given up on him yet. "Larry is in our future plans," said Morway. "We are hopeful that this year Larry gets back to being the basketball player that he was two years ago. He is a defensive presence and a game changer on the court." If Sanders can enter the 2014-15 season with his head on straight, he will be a very valuable addition to many fantasy rosters in the middle rounds of drafts. Rotoworld.com
