  • Quinn Cook agrees to camp deal with Hawks
    Quinn Cook has reportedly agreed to a two-year, partially guaranteed deal with the Hawks.

    Advice: The Hawks are rebuilding, so maybe Cook will be able to earn himself a spot as the third-string point guard on the roster if he impresses during training camp. He won't have any fantasy value, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:46 am

  • Whiteside said he would welcome a Wade return
    Hassan Whiteside said he would embrace a Dwyane Wade return.

    Advice: "It'd be great," Whiteside said. "It's a three-time NBA champion coming back, coming in and really helping a team out. It would be great." With the Bulls rebuilding, a buyout between the All-Star veteran and Chicago almost seems inevitable. The shut-down risk would be high if Wade stayed in the Windy City, so a move away would likely be a good thing. If you draft Josh Richardson or Dion Waiters this season, keep in mind that a potential Wade return would hurt their value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:40 am
  • Haslem comments on Dwyane Wade
    Udonis Haslem said his advice to Dwyane Wade is to take it "one day at a time."

    Advice: "We kind of understand the direction that Chicago is going in," Haslem said. "We kind of understand the direction that Dwyane wants to go in the last couple of years of his career. The business side of things sometimes doesn't always allow both sides to co-exist." Wade is expected to be bought out at some point during the season and he could wind up going back to the Heat.

  • Report: Dwyane Wade, Bulls headed to buyout?
    Dwyane Wade and the Bulls are "expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months," according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

    Advice: Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said in early July that he didn't expect Wade to be bought out this summer, but that doesn't rule out an early-season maneuver. Chicago is rebuilding after trading Jimmy Butler to the Wolves, and Zach LaVine is the franchise's SG of the future, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Wade hit free agency after a buyout in the coming months.

  • Boston has expressed interest in Kyrie Irving
    The Celtics have expressed interest in Kyrie Irving but have not yet made a formal offer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Advice: The Cavs are determined to get back a young, promising player in any potential Irving trade, as they are unsure if LeBron James will re-sign next summer. The Celtic they are reportedly keen on is Jayson Tatum. Boston certainly has the assets to make a very tempting offer, but the fact that the two teams are likely to meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals complicates the situation. Wojnarowski believes the Cavs may wait until September before engaging in "aggressive conversations." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:55 am
  • SVG willing to pay luxury tax to keep Bradley
    Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said team owner Tom Gores is more than willing to wade into luxury tax territory to retain Avery Bradley.

    Advice: "The finances will not inhibit our ability to re-sign Avery at whatever it takes," SVG said. "If we’re in a situation where we want Avery back and Avery wants to be here, we’ll be able to bring him back." Assuming Bradley commands a max deal as a free agent next summer, the Pistons will more than likely have to cross the projected tax line of $123 million to re-sign him. SVG loves his 3-and-D players and Bradley is one of the best in the NBA, so it's hard to imagine the Pistons letting him walk. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 8:58 am
  • Jackson says Bradley will elevate his game
    Reggie Jackson said the addition of Avery Bradley will "elevate" his own game.

    Advice: "I expect him to hold me accountable," Jackson said. "Try to get the best out of him and I expect him to try to get the best out of me. Especially being around the same age, it's going to be fun to lead this team and continue to battle and try to get better every day in practice and [in games]." Bradley gives the Pistons another reliable ball handler, so that should take some pressure off R-Jax. He's had the full offseason to get his knee right and is looking to bounce back after a disappointing 2016-17 campaign. If you're targeting Jackson, there's no need to reach for him until the later rounds. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 9:39 am
  • Jamal Murray bothered by the trade rumors
    Jamal Murray said the trade rumors this summer have been "nerve wracking."

    Advice: "It’s different knowing I could be in Cleveland right now. I could be in Minnesota," Murray said. "I could be anywhere in a couple days. It’s kind of nerve wracking because you don’t know what’s going on and there are so many rumors. I just have to stay ready and prepared for any opportunity." We're big fans of Murray over here and are expecting a breakout with the Nuggets and their elite offense, so a trade would certainly hurt his value. For now, it sounds like the trade rumors have slightly cooled, but it's possible Murray is in a Kyrie Irving trade. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 11:50 am

  • Reggie Jackson 'doing well and feeling good'
    Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said that Reggie Jackson (knee) is "doing well and feeling good."

    Advice: Jackson missed the first 21 games and the final nine games of the 2016-17 season due to left knee tendinitis. However, it appears offseason rehab has benefited the Pistons point guard. "They put him on a rehab protocol that is longer, a 16-week protocol where they’re slowly getting him ready for the season instead of getting him right back out on the court right away and doing his normal summer work," said Van Gundy. Jackson has a high fantasy ceiling, but the injury concerns and Detroit's depth at guard make him a risky pick in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 6:45 am
  • Dejounte Murray working out with IT
    Dejounte Murray has been working out with Isaiah Thomas.

    Advice: That's two different MVP candidates that Murray has worked out with this summer, including his teammate Kawhi Leonard in San Diego. Murray and Thomas both went to the University of Washington, so that likely explains the connection. Murray did not play well in summer league, but he still has an excellent chance to start on opening night with Tony Parker likely out until 2018. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 6:46 pm
  • Frank Ntilikina wants to start
    Frank Ntilikina said "of course" he wants to start for the Knicks this season.

    Advice: This doesn't really mean much and he did walk it back after that comment. "I’m a team player. I just want what’s best for the team." The plan looks like it'll be Ntilikina coming off the bench, but the Knicks swinging and missing on a free agent PG should help his case to get minutes sooner than expected. Ntilikina could leapfrog either Ron Baker or Ramon Sessions in camp, so keep an eye on him as a fantasy stash. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 6:35 pm
  • Reggie Jackson expecting Bradley to shoot
    Reggie Jackson said he's expecting Avery Bradley to get even better as a shooter.

    Advice: "I'll be a beneficiary," Jackson said of the improved Bradley shooting. "I get to play a little one-on-one, attack. I don't doubt he loves to shoot. He may not have come in as the most respected shooter but he's worked extremely hard on his game for him to be where he is now after seven seasons." Bradley had a career-high 2.0 treys last year while he had a career high in scoring, rebounds, and assists. If Bradley can avoid an injury, he could put up early-round value.
