  • Heat could waive/trade Josh McRoberts
    The Heat could opt to trade or waive Josh McRoberts this summer.

    Advice: Other than constantly getting injured, McRoberts has done a whole lot of nothing since joining the Miami franchise, and with the Heat potentially looking to make a splash during free agency this offseason, it would make sense to get McRoberts' contract worth $6 million off the books. It's tough to envision a situation where the 30-year-old stretch-four will be worth a draft pick next season. Today, 8:27 am
  • Kelly Olynyk scores 15 points in start
    Kelly Olynyk started Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday and scored 15 points in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He started in place of Amir Johnson (shoulder) and finished 7-of-14 from the field with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks, but he missed both of his 3-point attempts. Olynyk gave the Celtics a nice scoring punch in the first unit, but he was also exposed on the defensive end several times. Coach Brad Stevens has been indecisive with his starting lineups during the playoffs, so it's anybody's guess as to what he will do in Game 5 with Boston's season on the line. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk will start Game 4 Tuesday
    Kelly Olynyk will start Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Amir Johnson (shoulder) out, Olynyk should see a slight bump in minutes tonight in addition to Jonas Jerebko. After being held to a combined two points in Games 1 and 2, Olynyk gave the Celtics a nice spark in Game 3 with 15 points in 23 minutes. Boston needs offense and floor spacing with Isaiah Thomas (hip) out, so Olynyk should be heavily involved unless he starts out cold from the field. Yesterday, 4:05 pm
  • Report: Josh McRoberts picks up player option
    Josh McRoberts has reportedly picked up his player option worth $6 million for the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: This is far from surprising as there's absolutely no way McRoberts would be able to command this sort of salary on the open market. Since coming to Miami three years ago, McRoberts has only managed to suit up for a total of 81 games, and he hasn't done anything impressive since joining the Heat. Yesterday, 2:14 pm
  • Marreese Speights opts out of contract
    Marreese Speights has officially opted out of his contract with the Clippers.

    Advice: This was expected. It was an easy decision for Speights, as he was set to make just $1.4 million next season. He averaged 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.5 blocks and 1.3 treys in 15.7 minutes per game in 2016-17. As an unrestricted free agent this summer, he will likely be able to land a deal for around $5 million annually. Yesterday, 9:06 am
  • Nick Collison would like to re-sign w/ OKC
    Nick Collison said he plans to play next season and is hoping to stick with the Thunder.

    Advice: "I plan to play [next year] for sure," Collison said. "I wasn't sure going into the season how I would feel at the end of the year, but I still enjoy playing, and I enjoy being around the group. I enjoy being on the team, and I still think I have something to offer." Collison will be 37 years old next season and only made 20 appearances for the Thunder in 2016-17, so if he returns he will simply be a locker room guy. Sunday, 8:50 am
  • JaVale McGee plays well in start, scores 16
    JaVale McGee started for Zaza Pachulia (heel) in Game 3 on Saturday, scoring 16 points with one rebound and one block in 13 minutes.

    Advice: If you had JaVale McGee leading the Warriors in scoring with 16 points in the first half for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, go play the lotto. McGee made LaMarcus Aldridge look arguably the worst he has all season while McGee didn't make many defensive mistakes. He was pulled somewhat early in the second half after a strong start from Aldridge, so maybe that's why. Regardless, expect McGee to start again for Game 3 with Zaza banged up. Saturday, 8:43 pm
  • JaVale McGee is starting on Saturday
    JaVale McGee is starting on Saturday against the Spurs.

    Advice: Even with the Spurs going small, McGee will stick in the starting lineup. We should still see a lot of David West and Draymond Green at the five. Saturday, 6:06 pm
  • JaVale McGee likely to start Saturday
    JaVale McGee will "probably start" for Zaza Pachulia (heel) in Game 3 against the Spurs on Saturday, according to coach Mike Brown.

    Advice: He made 10 starts during the regular season, averaging 9.8 points, 5.2 boards, 0.9 blocks and 0.2 steals in 16.4 minutes per game. McGee has been seeing most of his run in garbage time lately, but he should be looking at minutes in the teens today. Plus, the Warriors are also heavy favorites with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) out.

  • Drummond wants to keep Pistons roster intact
    Andre Drummond said he believes the Pistons must improve their camaraderie and chemistry heading into the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: Despite a disappointing 2016-17 campaign, Drummond does not feel it's necessary to overhaul the Pistons roster. "I don’t think we need to do any changes," Drummond said on Tuesday. "We had a lot of bumps in the road last season with different things going on, and it took everybody out of sync. With this summer coming up, we have to do a better job staying connected — the more stuff we do together, the better our camaraderie will be." Drummond had offseason surgery to correct a deviated septum, which he hopes will increase his energy next season. Friday, 10:45 am
  • Kelly Olynyk starts 2nd half vs. Cleveland
    Kelly Olynyk started the second half of the Celtics' Game 1 loss on Wednesday, finishing with two points, three rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes.

    Advice: Olynyk replaced Amir Johnson after halftime but it didn't have a big impact at either end of the court, mainly because Olynyk missed his shots. The 26-year-old big man had a phenomenal Game 7 vs. the Wizards, and he could make an impact in this series, but the early returns aren't encouraging. Wednesday, 8:54 pm
  • Donatas Motiejunas open to all offers
    Donatas Motiejunas said that he while he would prefer to play in the NBA next season, he would consider returning to Europe as well.

    Advice: Motiejunas had a nightmare 2016-17 season due to injuries and contract disputes. He is currently suing the Rockets and the NBA over his contract issues. Motiejunas finished the season with the Pelicans but does not believe he is a fit in New Orleans. "[The Pelicans] don't need me, they already have 4-5 big man on the roster for the next season," said Motiejunas. His preferred NBA destinations are San Antonio, Golden State, Utah or Washington. Tuesday, 6:25 am
  • Kelly Olynyk drops 26 points in Game 7 win
    Kelly Olynyk dropped a playoff career-high 26 points in Monday's 115-105 Game 7 over the Wizards.

    Advice: Channeling his inner Larry Bird, Olynyk scored 14 points alone in the fourth quarter and outscored Washington's bench 26-5. He shot 10-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line, adding five rebounds, four assists and two triples in 28 minutes. Washington's small-ball lineup had no answer for Olynyk defensively and he became the first player in more than 30 years to score 25+ points and grab five boards off the bench in a Game 7. Boston will be hoping that he can build off this momentum because he was held to single-digit points in four of his previous five games. May 15, 8:00 pm
  • Nene (adductor tear) will not need surgery
    Nene said he will not need surgery to repair his ruptured groin muscle.

    Advice: "It's great. Very positive," Nene said. "We thought I was supposed to have [surgery]. I don't need [surgery]." This is wonderful news for the 34-year-old veteran because surgery would've required four to six months on the shelf. Instead, Nene will rehab for 6-8 weeks and is fully expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Nene was excellent in the postseason with averages of 10.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.7 steals in just 17.9 minutes per game, and he's likely going to get a nice raise this summer after playing for only $2.9 million in 2016-17. He's hopeful to re-sign with the Rockets and the feeling is likely mutual. May 14, 8:28 am
