  • Gerald Green agrees to deal with the Bucks
    Gerald Green has agreed on a deal to sign with the Bucks.

    Advice: It's a non-guaranteed deal for camp, but Green could compete for a roster spot. It's possible Green or Brandon Rush will be the choice as the last veteran wing on the 15-man roster. Green made a noteworthy impact in the postseason with coach Brad Stevens mixing it up, but he likely wouldn't be in the rotation to start the season. Today, 12:45 pm

  • Stanley Johnson could be a trade chip?
    Stanley Johnson could be the Pistons' top trade asset for this season, according to Vincent Ellis of Detroit Free Press.

    Advice: It's not a firm report, but Ellis adds an executive "narrowed it down" to Johnson being a possible trade target for other teams. Johnson has two years left on his rookie deal, so teams would love to give him a shot at age 21. Perhaps the Pistons just throw him into the fire to see what they have and he does have an opportunity now with Marcus Morris gone, so keep an eye on him as a late-round flier in fantasy. Today, 11:48 am
  • Andrew Wiggins says he'll focus on rebounding
    Andrew Wiggins said he has added weight and will focus on rebounding next season.

    Advice: Wiggins averaged 4.0 rebounds in 37.2 minutes per game last season. As a rookie back in 2014-15, he averaged 4.6 boards, while playing 36.2 minutes a night. Coach Tom Thibodeau has also stated he wants Wiggins to be more aggressive on the glass. If Wiggy can pull down five-plus boards per game, that would give his overall fantasy value a boost. Today, 9:45 am
  • Bucks waive Bronson Koenig
    Bucks waive G Bronson Koenig.

    Advice: The University of Wisconsin product signed a two-way deal on July 6, and played five games for the Bucks in Las Vegas. Yesterday, 3:15 pm

  • Alec Burks working out a lot at facility
    Alec Burks (knee) has been working out at the Jazz practice facility.

    Advice: He's been there a lot and it would appear Burks is healthy. Numerous injuries have kept Burks in check for the past few seasons, but he's putting in extra work to get the explosiveness back in his game. He could be competing with Donovan Mitchell for a rotation spot. Yesterday, 12:25 pm

  • Wiggins expected to sign max deal soon
    Andrew Wiggins is progressing toward a five-year, $148 million maximum extension according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: The Wolves have been saying since July that they will give Wiggins his max deal and Shams Charania adds that he's expected to sign soon. The deal wouldn't kick in until 2018-19 and will keep him under contract through the 2022-23 season. Wiggins is more of a one-trick pony in fantasy for his scoring ability, but he should only improve his all-around game in his age-23 season. Being able to learn from Jimmy Butler could be huge as well. Yesterday, 9:22 am
  • Bulls open to Dwyane Wade buyout
    Bulls executive vice president John Paxson said the team is open to a buyout for Dwyane Wade only if it's "advantageous" for the franchise.

    Advice: This means Wade would have to give up a significant portion of his $23.8 million salary if he wants to leave. The Bulls haven't talked to Wade directly about a buyout, but they've "had dialogue with Wade’s representatives." The Bulls are expected to be one of the worst teams in the league and the 35-year-old Wade doesn't want to throw a whole season away, so it seems more likely than not that he will be bought out. If not, expect them to shop Wade aggressively before the February deadline. Yesterday, 8:50 am
  • Lance Stephenson is 100 percent healthy
    Lance Stephenson is 100 percent healthy after battling ankle and knee issues late in the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: Coach Nate McMillan plans to use Stephenson as the sixth man, but added that he could still see starter minutes. "I hope he can establish [that role]," McMillan said. "A sixth man is like a starter, and he can be a guy who can do a lot of things with that second group with his ability to handle the ball, score the ball. He's an unselfish player." Stephenson averaged 7.2 points, 4.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds in six games with the Pacers last season and is likely looking at a similar role with minutes in the 20s. Yesterday, 7:52 am
  • Reggie Jackson says he's had no setbacks
    Reggie Jackson said he's had no setbacks with his left knee this summer.

    Advice: "With my knee, I’m feeling good. With the health of it, I’m feeling great," he said. "I just got to do the best I can to take care of it. The team is doing a great job of monitoring it. I’ve had no setbacks. I’m on pace, which is to be ready by training camp." Jackson has a chronic case of tendinitis in his knee and has had two platelet-rich plasma injections in his career, so this is something the Pistons may have to monitor for the foreseeable future -- they are already planning to limit him to one practice a day at training camp. Yesterday, 6:21 am
  • Isaiah Whitehead has to compete for minutes
    Coach Kenny Atkinson said Isaiah Whitehead will have to compete for minutes this season.

    Advice: "I thought Isaiah had some really great moments last year," Atkinson added. "I really believe in him. Obviously he’s still a young player, but I’m anxious to see him compete in training camp. I think he fits how we wanna play." With D'Angelo Russell in the mix and likely to get big minutes, Whitehead will have to learn to play both on and off the ball. He's not on the fantasy radar. Wednesday, 1:09 pm
  • Lance Stephenson will be sixth man in Indiana
    Nate McMillan intends to use Lance Stephenson as a sixth man for the Pacers this season, according to Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports.

    Advice: Stephenson will help backup Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo in Indiana this season, but it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league contributor in fantasy hoops as a member of the second unit with the Pacers. Wednesday, 8:57 am
  • Reggie Jackson feeling like his old self
    Reggie Jackson (left) said he feels like he's getting his explosion back and is "pain-free" after taking it easy and rehabbing this offseason.

    Advice: "No red flags," Jackson said. "I’ve done quite a bit of testing. The team has the results. The numbers, from what I know, they look good. It’s just about maintaining and building that strength." Jackson was barred from participating in full-contact, full-court work this summer in order to give his troublesome left knee some extended rest, and Stan Van Gundy has acknowledged that while he'll be cleared for camp, Jackson will likely be sitting out the two-a-day workouts. R-Jax doesn't offer a ton of upside, so he won't be worth much more than a late-round flier on draft day. Wednesday, 7:54 am
  • Jarrett Jack says he's 100 percent
    Jarrett Jack said his knee is 100 percent healthy.

    Advice: He had an ACL tear back in January of 2016 and only played two games in 2016-17 after picking up another season-ending knee injury. He has a non-guaranteed deal with the Knicks, but he could make a push for minutes since their current depth chart at PG consists of Frank Ntilikina, Ramon Sessions and Ron Baker. He's not on the standard-league radar unless he moves up the chart. Tuesday, 9:03 pm
  • Alex Abrines (knee) making progress
    According to OKC beat writer Brett Dawson, Alex Abrines (knee) is progressing toward a return to the court.

    Advice: Abrines injured his knee in Spain's first EuroBasket game, back on September 7th. He's had issues with both knees over the past few years and had platelet-rich plasma injections in his right knee in May. Abrines is back in OKC after sitting out the FIBA tournament, but it is currently unknown if he'll be ready for the start of training camp next week. However, with Paul George now in the mix, Abrines has very limited fantasy value even if he is fully healthy. Tuesday, 9:07 am
  • Hornets sign G Terry Henderson to camp deal
    The Hornets signed G Terry Henderson to a non-guaranteed contract on Monday.

    Advice: Henderson averaged 13.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 30.9 minutes per game at N.C. State last season as a senior. He is a longshot to make the 15-man roster and should be ignored in all fantasy formats. Tuesday, 7:04 am
  • Heat may rest Goran Dragic during camp
    The Heat may give Goran Dragic extra rest during training camp.

    Advice: Dragic recently carried Slovenia to its first EuroBasket championship and was named MVP of the tournament. However, he had to sit out the fourth quarter of the final due to cramping. Slovenia coach Igor Kokoskov said Dragic "couldn’t play for a quarter. He was cramping on the side, he was laying on the floor. It wasn’t my decision, it was just the body. His body was quitting on Goran." After expending so much energy in mid-September, Miami may choose to rest him more than usual at camp. Still, this won't have any impact on his fantasy value, as he should be completely fresh for the regular season. Tuesday, 6:37 am
  • Andrew Wiggins expected to ink extension soon
    Andrew Wiggins is expected to sign his five-year, $148 million extension with the Timberwolves before training camp begins on Saturday.

    Advice: This deal has been rumored to be in the works for the past month, but was put on hold when Wiggins fired his agent, Bill Duffy. As for fantasy hoops, Wiggins can be a nice source of points, but his limited contributions to the other statistical categories really limits his upside. Maybe he'll learn how to become more of a complete player under Jimmy Butler's tutelage, but we'd still recommend waiting until the later rounds before making a move on Wiggins. Monday, 2:51 pm
  • Brandon Rush signs deal w/ Bucks
    Brandon Rush's agent announced that his client has signed a deal with the Bucks.

    Advice: The specifics of the deal aren't known, but it's likely for the veteran's minimum. Rush will provide some depth off the bench behind Tony Snell and Khris Middleton at the 2 and 3, but won't see enough minutes to help most fantasy owners. Monday, 9:48 am

  • E'Twaun Moore prepared to play some SF
    E'Twaun Moore said he's prepared to play some small forward with Solomon Hill (hamstring) out indefinitely.

    Advice: "That’s helped me out with sticking in the league," Moore said of his versatility. "Teams want guys who can do multiple things. We are down a player now, with Solomon out, so if I have to help fill that void, I’ll look forward to it." The coaching staff has already talked to Moore about this, and we could see Tony Allen and Jordan Crawford pick up some minutes at SF as well. Moore is still just a deep-league asset after putting up career-highs in points (9.6) and 3-pointers (1.1) with 2.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds in just under 25 minutes last season. Monday, 9:07 am
  • Nuggets hoping to extend Gary Harris
    After re-signing Mason Plumlee, the Nuggets are turning their attention towards a contract extension for Gary Harris.

    Advice: The Nuggets have until opening night to negotiate an extension, but based on GM Tim Connelly's comments back in April, Harris should have no trouble landing a lucrative deal. The 23-year-old SG averaged career highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and 3-pointers (1.9) last season, shooting 50.2 percent from the field and posting top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. He's one of our favorite mid-round targets this season. Monday, 7:55 am
  • Bucks linked to Brandon Rush
    The Bucks have interest in free agent G/F Brandon Rush according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN.

    Advice: Rush was previously linked to the Mavericks, Pacers and Heat, but his market has cooled off. It's also unclear if the Wolves have any interest in bringing the veteran back, as they do have a few roster spots open. Rush averaged just 4.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.9 treys in Minnesota last season and wouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he signed in Milwaukee. Monday, 6:55 am

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic scores 22 points in loss
    Bogdan Bogdanovic netted a team-high 22 points during Sunday's loss to Slovenia, adding four rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Bogdanovic was the only reason this game was close, and while he wasn't able to deliver the gold for Team Serbia, he did finish the EuroBasket tournament as a member of the All-Star five with averages of 20.4 points, 5.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.3 triples per contest on 47.4 percent shooting. The 25-year-old will come stateside NBA ready, although he will be fighting for minutes with the likes of Buddy Hield, Justin Jackson and Garrett Temple in Sacramento. Still, there's enough upside here to warrant a late-round selection on draft day. Sunday, 2:06 pm
  • Goran Dragic brings home the gold for SLO
    Goran Dragic powered Slovenia to a 93-85 win over Serbia in the EuroBasket championship game on Sunday, erupting for 35 points on 12-of-22 shooting and taking home MVP honors.

    Advice: Dragic added seven boards, three triples, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in his 29 minutes of floor time, and simply put, he was too much to handle for Team Serbia. He'll end his EuroBasket career on a high note, bringing home the gold for Team Slovenia for the first time in EuroBasket history, and setting the single-game scoring record for the Slovenian national team. Dragic will come into Miami's training camp in tip-top shape, and he shouldn't have any trouble at all contributing top-50 value in his 10th NBA season. For what it's worth, he did sit out the fourth quarter due to cramps, but that won't be an issue that affects him at camp. Sunday, 1:50 pm
  • Malik Monk expected to be ready for opener?
    Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer said he has no reason to think that Malik Monk (ankle) won't be ready for the season opener.

    Advice: His ankle injury kept him out of the entire Summer League and coach Steve Clifford said in early-September that it was still bothering him, but he has a full month before the season begins. Bonnell adds that Monk will have to "earn his minutes" this season and Clifford won't play him exclusively because he was a lottery pick. Monk could see time at multiple positions, but it sounds like expectations should be tempered in the early going. He's a better pick in dynasty than in re-draft leagues. Sunday, 6:32 am
  • DAR and Jarrett Allen playing together?
    Jarrett Allen said that D'Angelo Russell is going to find him off pick and roll next season.

    Advice: Interesting. This could be nothing, but hey it's slow today. This could be a sign that Russell could be used on the ball more than the Nets are leading on, and also that Russell could be coming off the bench as the second-unit point guard -- or Allen and Russell could start together. DAR would certainly still get double-digit minutes next to Jeremy Lin and would likely close out games, so we'd view these possibilities as a positive for the former Laker. He's one of our favorite post-hype sleepers in the middle rounds. Saturday, 4:59 pm
  • Darius Miller a possible starter at SF?
    Reporter Will Guillory of The Times-Picayune believes that Darius Miller may start at small forward for the Pelicans this season.

    Advice: With Solomon Hill sidelined indefinitely due to a torn hamstring, and Dante Cunningham still unsigned, the Pelicans have a gaping hole at the small forward spot. The Pels recently added Tony Allen, but Guillory argues that Miller is the most likely candidate to win the starting nod because Miller has shown "improved confidence shooting from the perimeter during his past two seasons in Germany and the team believes he's better prepared for his second stint in the NBA." Miller may be worth a flier in the final round of deep leagues. Saturday, 6:49 am
  • Ingram says he's been working the weight room
    Brandon Ingram said he feels much stronger because he's been "putting in so much work in the weight room."

    Advice: Ingram weighed in at only 180 pounds as a rookie, so adding muscle to his lanky frame was one of his offseason goals. Improving his accuracy is also an objective. Ingram shot just 36.3 percent from the floor over the first half of last season, before bumping that number up to 47.5 percent after the All-Star break. He will be one of the focal points of the Lakers offense this next season and has a chance to put up impressive numbers if he can maintain that efficiency. Saturday, 6:40 am
  • Report: Wade hoping Bulls offer buyout
    According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times, Dwyane Wade is hoping the Bulls approach him with a reasonable buyout offer.

    Advice: It's no secret that the 35-year old Wade wants to leave the rebuilding Bulls for a team capable of competing for a championship. However, Chicago has let it be known they will only agree to a buyout if it is "advantageous for the organization." One primary reason the Bulls would want to hold onto Wade, even if he's unhappy, is that his large, expiring contract could be a valuable trade chip at the deadline in February. Saturday, 6:19 am
  • Stanley Johnson drops some weight
    Stanley Johnson said he's dropped some weight this offseason and he's more aware of his shot selection.

    Advice: "This sounds crazy, but the first thing for me is I’m just a lot more knowledgeable of the shots I should be shooting and the shots I shouldn’t be shooting," Johnson said. "I feel like I have a better grip on what spots I need to get to, what spots I can get to without trying to force things." Johnson made just 25.9 percent of his jumpers last year, so clearly he has to improve there. With the U of A product set for more minutes, maybe this is the year he can have some consistent value as a late-round pick. Friday, 3:59 pm
  • Jason Terry returns to Bucks on one-year deal
    Jason Terry has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks.

    Advice: The Bucks surprisingly got 74 games out of Terry last season, averaging 4.1 points per game. Terry turned 40 years old today, so the Bucks are counting on him more for his veteran leadership than his play. Friday, 3:22 pm
  • Pelicans sign Tony Allen
    Pelicans sign G/F Tony Allen.

    Advice: Sure, the Pelicans need shooting, but they are desperate for perimeter defense. Allen has picked up plenty of starts at small forward over his last three years, so he could get some starts there while Solomon Hill (hamstring) is on the shelf. Allen still isn't worth drafting in most leagues. Friday, 3:11 pm
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic drops 24 points in win
    Bogdan Bogdanovic turned it up a notch in a win over Russia on Friday, scoring 24 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He helped his Serbian team make it to the EuroBasket final. Vlade Divac has been singing the praises of Bogdanovic and called him one of the best player overseas, so he has to be salivating about his Serbian wing. It's not going to be easy for him to get consistent minutes with Buddy Hield, Justin Jackson and others vying for minutes, but using a late pick on Bogdan seems like a good idea for now. Friday, 1:30 pm
  • Knicks sign Jarrett Jack
    Knicks sign G Jarrett Jack.

    Advice: It's official and it's reportedly a non-guaranteed deal. Jack has had some bad luck lately with an ACL tear in January 2016 and another season-ending knee injury last season. If he's healthy, he has a chance to earn a starting spot over Ramon Sessions. Frank Ntilikina is expected to be brought along slowly. Friday, 12:07 pm
  • Portland agrees to one-year deal with Morrow
    Portland has agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with G/F Anthony Morrow.

    Advice: Morrow averaged 5.5 points in 14.6 minutes over 49 games with the Thunder and Bulls last season. The Blazers backcourt is stacked, but they did trade Allen Crabbe to the Nets back in August, so it's possible Morrow may see some playing time on the wing. However, he can certainly be ignored in fantasy leagues. Friday, 7:14 am
  • Dragic leads Slovenia to title game
    Goran Dragic scored 15 points with six rebounds and five assists in a win over Spain to get the Slovenian team to the EuroBasket final.

    Advice: The Slovenians will take on the winner of the Serbia vs. Russia game on Friday. Dragic has played well for almost the entire tournament and he's helped his team get to 8-0. He is 31 years old and sometimes we've seen older players hit a wall after some international competition, but Dragic is still worthy of a pick near No. 50 in standard leagues. Thursday, 1:48 pm
  • Garrett Temple to start at SG?
    Kings beat reporter James Ham expects Garrett Temple to start at shooting guard this season.

    Advice: Temple is a great fit on and off the court for the Kings, but he's easy to overlook because of all the talk surrounding Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Ham adds that Temple will play "significant minutes" this season and that he will likely be asked to play some SF as well. Even if Temple wins the starting job in camp, he offers very little upside outside of 3-pointers and steals, so Hield and Bogdanovic are more appealing in the late rounds. Thursday, 7:40 am
  • Goran Dragic scores 26 points w/ eight dimes
    Goran Dragic led Slovenia to a 103-97 win over Latvia on Tuesday, tallying 26 points, eight assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and six turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Dragic got cracked with an elbow to the head that sent him to the floor during the closing minutes of the first half of action, but he played through it and didn't look any worse for the wear, so it seems like he avoided a concussion. He also ran Slovenia's offense beautifully and came through with a clutch bucket with the clock winding down to put the game out of reach. The undefeated Slovenian team will now square off with an undefeated Spanish team in the semifinals on Thursday. Tuesday, 1:34 pm
