  • Stephen Curry not interested in being rested
    Stephen Curry replied "hell naw" when asked if he anticipates receiving random rest throughout the 2019-20 season due to load management.

    Advice: The Warriors will be without Klay Thompson for a majority of the 2019-20 season, and they don't have great depth at the guard spots, so they might not have the luxury to give Curry a lot of rest as they compete for a playoff spot next year. Curry is getting up there in age at 31, but his silky-smooth game should hold off Father Time longer than most and he could very realistically come home with his third MVP trophy this upcoming season. He'll make for a quality top-5 target. 16 minutes ago
  • Markelle Fultz still without a timetable
    Markelle Fultz (shoulder) still doesn't have an official timetable for his return, but he's making "great progress," according to head coach Steve Clifford.

    Advice: "He's working hard, he's made great progress," said Clifford. "You know, right now we don't have a timetable for when he'll be back, but he's really doing a great job." Clifford added that he would have liked to have seen Fultz play at Summer League, but he's still not quite ready, which is fairly concerning given he hasn't taken the court since November and has only made it through a total of 33 games since being drafted in 2017. If he's ready to go by camp, he could be worth a late-round pick, but we wouldn't recommend reaching for him. 30 minutes ago
  • Reggie Bullock signs to two-year deal w/ NYK
    Reggie Bullock has officially signed his two-year deal with the Knicks.

    Advice: Bullock initially agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with the Knicks, but after an unanticipated health issue was discovered during his physical, the Knicks and Bullock re-worked the deal on a more team-friendly salary. He reportedly signed for less than the $4.7 million exception and his contract has a player option on Year-2, but we still don't know exactly what ailment he's dealing with. Today, 7:43 am

  • Grayson Allen scores 17 in SL finale
    Grayson Allen shot 6-of-13 from the field and 5-of-5 from the foul line Monday, finishing the Summer League title game with 17 points, five rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes.

    Advice: This Summer League wasn't the smoothest of experiences for Allen, but he heads home with a championship trophy thanks to the Grizzlies' 95-92 win over the Timberwolves. Given Memphis' lack of depth and experience on the perimeter, he'll likely have the opportunity to earn some rotation minutes during training camp. Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Cavaliers waive J.R. Smith; Lakers unlikely
    The Cavaliers have officially waived J.R. Smith.

    Advice: Smith will hit the open market after five seasons in Cleveland and he was a key member of the 2016 championship team. He has long been connected to the Lakers because of his former teammate LeBron James, though ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that they are an unlikely destination. Smith is unlikely to find a big role wherever he lands, leaving him on the periphery of the fantasy landscape. Yesterday, 2:05 pm

  • GSW not talking load management for Steph yet
    General manager Bob Myers said the Warriors have not talked about load management for Stephen Curry and Draymond Green.

    Advice: Curry is 31 years old and is going to be one of the older early-round draft picks in fantasy this year, so it's fair to project he'll be getting at least a few games off. The Warriors have been careful with Curry because of his history with ankle sprains, and that'll likely be the case again this year. He offers No. 1 upside in standard leagues and looks to be worthy of a top-five pick. Yesterday, 12:58 pm
  • GS didn't add Russell just to trade him
    General manager Bob Myers said the Warriors "didn't sign [D'Angelo Russell] with the intention of just trading him."

    Advice: What else is Myers going to say? There have been reports that the Warriors could look to deal Russell after Dec. 15 with hopes of getting something back after Kevin Durant (Achilles) opted to go to Brooklyn. Russell should be the No. 2 offensive option behind Stephen Curry as he adapts to a new offense. He'll likely be going in the fourth or fifth rounds of drafts. Yesterday, 12:24 pm
  • Josh Okogie (shin) not likely to play Monday
    Josh Okogie's leg injury isn't serious, but there's a decent chance he won't play in Monday's championship game in Vegas.

    Advice: He should be fine for the start of training camp and we haven't heard of him being officially ruled out of tonight's game. Yesterday, 11:19 am
  • Wesley Matthews signs two-year deal w/ Bucks
    The Milwaukee Bucks signed Wesley Matthews to a two-year, $5.26 million deal on Monday.

    Advice: The deal includes a player option in year two and Matthews has a good chance of starting at shooting guard for the Bucks this season. Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Rockets, Clippers at standstill with Iguodala
    The Rockets and Clippers are still the teams most interested in acquiring Andre Iguodala from the Grizzlies, but neither team is anywhere close to a deal, according to Shams Charania.

    Advice: The Rockets don't want to go deeper into the luxury tax and the Clippers don't want to part with Moe Harkless, who would be the most logical player to move in a deal for Iguodala. The Grizzlies may just end up keeping Iguodala and buying him out later in the season if they can't find a trade proposal they really like, but it still seems unlikely that Iguodala will ever for the Grizzlies. Yesterday, 10:03 am
  • Vardon: Cavs to waive J.R. Smith Monday
    Barring a last-minute trade, the Cavaliers are expected to waive J.R. Smith on Monday, reports Joe Vardon.

    Advice: Once he's been waived Smith will become a free agent and reports are that he'll wind up with LeBron and the Lakers. At this point, it's hard to imagine the soon-to-be 34-year-old Smith having any fantasy value ever again, but stranger things have happened. Yesterday, 7:12 am

  • Caron Butler says Fultz is healthy
    Caron Butler, who had the same agent as Markelle Fultz (shoulder), said recently on NBA TV that Fultz is healthy and progressing.

    Advice: "The guy that no one’s talking about, who’s healthy, who’s working his tail off right now all summer long: Markelle Fultz," Butler said. Fultz's agent is Raymond Brothers, so hopefully Butler is in the loop here. We still don't know when Fultz will be ready to play again, but most of the news we've gotten on him this summer has been positive. Hopefully we'll get a look at him in training camp and the preseason. Yesterday, 6:52 am
  • Jimmer Fredette to play in Greece
    Panathinaikos signed guard Jimmer Fredette to a two-year contract, the Greek club announced.

    Advice: The 2011 NCAA Player of the Year, former 10th overall pick, and 2016-17 China scoring champ will now give it a go in Greece. He played in six games for the Suns last season, and the journeyman's signing with Panathinaikos might finally signal the end of his NBA career. Yesterday, 6:23 am

  • Josh Okogie (shin) will not play on Sunday
    Josh Okogie (left ankle, shin contusion) will not play Sunday against the Nets.

    Advice: Okogie suffered the injury in Saturday's win over the Mavericks and didn't play in the second half. The injury is minor, but the team is taking no chances. Sunday, 5:01 pm
  • Upcoming Brad Beal extension not a done deal?
    The Wizards are able to offer Bradley Beal a three-year, $111 million extension on July 26, but Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports that people around the league speculate that it isn't a done deal.

    Advice: The team has indicated that they are going to make the offer, and Beal, who has two years left on his current deal, has expressed interest in signing it. However, with the increase in player movement, combined with the mess in the Wizards organization, the situation isn't as cut-and-dry as it may seem. Beal has previously stated that he would love to stay in D.C. for his whole career, but that winning would be put above all for him. As recent history has shown, even if he signs the contract, that doesn't mean he won't ask out soon after. Buckner lists Miami, Minnesota and Denver as possible suitors, but most teams would be interested if Beal it's the market. Sunday, 2:38 pm
  • James Harden welcomes more off-ball plays
    According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, James Harden repeatedly assured the Rockets that he would welcome playing off-ball more in order to help the fit with Russell Westbrook.

    Advice: Harden attempted 70 catch-and-shoot threes last season, compared to nearly 1,000 pull-up triples. Even though the two wanted to play together again, it's going to take a serious adjustment from each to make it work. Harden played 22.3 minutes per game with Chris Paul on the bench last season, so one can expect that number to be in a similar range with Westbrook this season. Harden ceding more of the ball to Westbrook will likely lower his scoring numbers compared to last season, but he's still going to be near the top of the leaderboard. Sunday, 2:08 pm
  • Shams: Nets, Nwaba agree to two-year deal
    David Nwaba has agreed to a two-year contract with the Nets, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Advice: The second year of the deal includes a team option. Nwaba has bounced around in his three seasons in the NBA, but will spend the next two in Brooklyn. He's a defense-first wing that will provide coach Kenny Atkinson with some depth on the perimeter, though he won't provide much in the way of fantasy value. Sunday, 8:22 am

  • Josh Okogie (shin) not expected to return Sat
    Josh Okogie (left ankle, shin contusion) is not expected to return to Saturday's Summer League game against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Okogie scored just one point in 13 minutes before exiting, but he did have one amazing highlight (linked below). There's no reason for the team to put him back out there with any sort of ailment to risk further injury. Okogie should have a firm place in the rotation this upcoming season. Saturday, 8:44 pm
  • Dante Exum to play more on the wing this year
    According to a report by The Athletic's Tony Jones, the Jazz project Dante Exum to play as much on the wing as he does at point guard this season.

    Advice: Even with the additions of Mike Conley and Emmanuel Mudiay, the Jazz expect Exum to be a big part of their perimeter rotation. He's only played in 122 of a possible 246 games over the past three seasons, which is a big reason why the team signed Mudiay further shore up the backup point guard spot. It's good to hear that Utah wants Exum to play a lot, but he'll be hard for fantasy owners trust until he can put his injury issues behind him. Until then, he's just a flier in deeper leagues. Saturday, 12:42 pm
  • Milos Teodosic to sign 3-year dealin Italy
    Milos Teodosic has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with Virtus Bologna.

    Advice: Teodosic came over to the NBA two years ago, but failed to live up to expectations. Due to injuries and ineffectiveness, he never saw consistent minutes with the Clippers. Saturday, 7:14 am
  • Stein: MEM prepared to take Iggy into season
    According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Grizzlies are "prepared to take Andre Iguodala into the season unless they receive a trade offer featuring a future first-round pick."

    Advice: The Rockets and the Clippers are the two teams rumored to be most interested in obtaining Iguodala. Due to the strong interest, the Grizz will sit tight until they get the first-round pick they desire. Per Stein, it doesn't mean "they will get what they want, but it's a sensible position for the Grizzlies to take in July when they surely know a long list of contenders covet Iguodala if he can extricate himself from a rebuilding situation in Memphis." Friday, 11:52 am
  • Report: Rockets looking to trade for Iguodala
    According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, trading for Andre Iguodala is now the Rockets No. 1 priority.

    Advice: The Warriors traded Iguodala to the Grizzlies this month in order to pull off the sign-and-trade deal they put together for D'Angelo Russell. Iggy was seeking to reach a buyout agreement with Memphis, but the Grizzlies plan to hold onto to him and trade him. The Rockets have made their interest known since Iggy left Golden State. Amick also reports that "the Clippers also known to be among the most serious suitors" for Iguodala. Friday, 9:47 am
  • Russell knows he may not be in GS long-term
    D'Angelo Russell acknowledged that he may not be a part of Golden State's long-term plans, but he's excited for the opportunity to share the floor with Stephen Curry.

    Advice: "That's the business of it," Russell said when asked whether he has been given any indication from the Warriors that they want to keep him long-term. "It is what it is. You put yourself in a position to go somewhere for a long period of time, and it may not be what it is a year later. And that's the business." Russell will help fill the void while Klay Thompson is out, but defensively, he's a questionable fit with this club. He'll likely finish the 2019-20 season as a Warrior, but whether the partnership goes far beyond that is still up for debate. Wednesday, 7:21 am
  • Grayson Allen scores 13 points with two swats
    Grayson Allen scored 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting during Tuesday's Summer League win over the Suns, adding three boards, one assist, two blocks and five turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Grizzlies have very little depth in their backcourt, so Allen will have the opportunity to get into the rotation. It's possible he could have some low-end value in deep leagues as a 3-point specialist, so we'll be watching how his role develops at camp. Bruno Caboclo finished with six points, seven boards, two dimes, two steals and three swats in 22 minutes off the bench, and he's another guy making blips on the deep-league radar. Tuesday, 6:21 pm
  • Report: NYK, Bullock re-working contract
    The Knicks are reportedly re-working the original two-year, $21 million offer they extended to Reggie Bullock.

    Advice: According to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski, both sides are motivated to come to terms on a new agreement, but they're "re-evaluating Bullock’s fitness to play a full season in 2019-20." Apparently, something at least semi-serious was discovered during his physical, but it's unclear exactly what he's dealing with. Tuesday, 1:04 pm

  • Grayson Allen scores 17 in SL for Memphis
    Grayson Allen hit 6-of-14 shots and 5-of-5 free throws for 17 points, two rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes for Memphis in Sunday's 87-75 win over the Clippers in Vegas.

    Advice: He picked up a technical foul in his first game as a Grizzly, something former Grizzly Mike Conley failed to do in 844 games with the team. Jul 7, 10:26 pm
  • Josh Okogie scores 15 points w/ seven boards
    Josh Okogie produced 15 points, seven rebounds, two triples, three swats and one turnover across 22 minutes of action during Sunday's Summer League win over the Hawks.

    Advice: It wasn’t the most efficient performance, with Okogie finishing 4-of-12 from the field, but he got the job done and the second-year guard was a tier above everyone else on the floor. He had a decent second-half run this past season, but he’ll have some increased competition for minutes next year with the addition of Jarrett Culver, so that caps his value. Jul 7, 4:36 pm
