  • Report: ORL to target Gary Trent Jr. this summer
    According to Heavy's Sean Deveney, league sources believe that the Magic will target Gary Trent Jr. in free agency. 

    Advice: Trent is expected to opt out of the final season of his current contract in order to hit free agency, and he should not lack suitors. A career 38.4% shooter from three, it's understandable that he would be a target for the Magic. Orlando finishes last season ranked 26th in offensive rating and 24th in 3-point percentage, two areas where Trent is capable of giving the team a boost. Also worth noting is the status of Gary Harris, who has a team option worth $13 million. While a capable 3-and-D wing, injuries have been an issue for him since he arrived in Orlando. Not picking up Harris' option could open up the space needed to add Trent or another highly regarded wing shooter this summer. Today, 9:29 pm
  • Andre Drummond plans to exercise player option
    Andre Drummond said recently that he plans on exercising his player option for the 2023-24 season. 

    Advice: Drummond, who appeared in 67 games this season as Nikola Vucevic's backup, will make a little under $3.4 million should he follow through on the plan to opt-in. While he was effective in that role, playing less than 13 minutes per game considerably limited Drummond's fantasy value. At best, he's a player worth rostering only when Vucevic is sidelined due to injury. And those opportunities will be minimal, as Vooch has appeared in 70 games or more in four of the last five seasons. Today, 9:06 pm
  • Josh Hart will 'probably' decline player option
    Josh Hart stated in a recent interview that he will "probably" opt out of the final season of his current deal to become an unrestricted free agent. 

    Advice: Hart's comment comes as no surprise; if anything, using the word "probably" was a bit conservative on his part. He was a key cog for the Knicks in their run to the second round of the playoffs after being acquired at the trade deadline, likely earning himself more money in the process. Hart also said that he hopes to remain with the Knicks, and getting a deal done would be a positive for both sides given his impact. Hart would have made a little under $13 million had he picked up his player option for next season; he stands to command more in free agency. Today, 7:58 pm
  • Cody Zeller (foot) probable for Game 3 Wednesday
    Cody Zeller (sprained right foot) is probable for Game 3 of the Finals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Zeller played eight minutes in each of the first two games, and the Heat have been outscored by a total of 19 points when he's on the floor. He gives them a center when Bam Adebayo needs a break, but Zeller hasn't exactly been a positive factor for Miami thus far. Still, he should be able to suit up as the series shifts back to Miami. Today, 5:12 pm
  • Tyler Herro (hand) to remain sidelined for Game 3
    Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) will remain sidelined for Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Reports before the series suggested that Game 3 would be the target date for Herro's return to the court. It will be at least one more game before he suits up for the first time since suffering the injury in Game 1 of the first round. It'll be all hands on deck since it's the Finals, so he likely won't have any minutes restriction when he's finally cleared. However, with how well their role players have played, it's unclear if he'll return to the starting lineup immediately when he is able to play. Still, they haven't had him for their entire playoff run, so his continued absence shouldn't hurt their chances of winning their first title since LeBron James left. Today, 5:07 pm
  • Fischer: Shaedon Sharpe 'off limits' in trade talk
    According to a report from Yahoo's Jake Fischer, teams that are interested in trading for the third pick have been given the impression that Shaedon Sharpe is "off limits" in trade talks.

    Advice: With Damian Lillard making it clear that he doesn't have interest in going through a rebuild, Portland is ready to make a decision. It seems that they want to try and compete, and they want to do it with Sharpe on this roster. He played a limited role for most of his rookie year, but he finished the season out really well. With reports surfacing that the Hornets are leaning towards taking Brandon Miller at two, Portland may be able to get a larger haul for the third pick than they originally expected. Regardless of what they do, it appears that Sharpe will be part of their future. Today, 4:26 pm
  • Likely to play in Game 3
    Zeller is probable for Wednesday's Game 3 against Denver due to a sprained right foot, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Advice: Zeller was also considered probable for Game 2 before being upgraded to available. The veteran big man is averaging 2.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.5 minutes across the first two contests of the series. Today, 2:12 pm
  • Ruled out for Game 3
    Herro (hand) has been ruled out for Game 3 of the NBA Finals versus Denver on Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Advice: There was speculation that Herro could return for either Game 2 or 3, but he's experienced soreness and swelling in his surgically repaired hand that delayed his return timeline. The shooting guard has been fully participating in Miami's recent practices, but it remains to be seen if he'll be cleared for game action at any point in the series. Today, 2:08 pm
  • Spoelstra: Tyler Herro (hand) not cleared yet
    Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra tells reporters Tuesday that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) has not been cleared yet for a return.

    Advice: The Tyler Herro return for Game 3 storyline may prove to be just a pipe dream as Erik Spoelstra all but killed any notion of the young guard returning for Wednesday's contest. Spoelstra added that the team will put him through a contact workout to see where he's at in his recovery process. The Heat are taking a cautious approach and don't seem to be rushing Herro's return, especially with them having wrestled home-court advantage away from the Nuggets. Today, 1:21 pm
