  • The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo
    The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo.

    Advice: The Kings added some really nice perimeter depth on Thursday with De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Frank Mason. Plus, they could also be adding Bogdan Bogdanovic for next year, so they may have several new pieces to their backcourt compared to the start of the 2016-17 season. As for Afflalo, he is still 31 and he may be looking to join a contender next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope suspended 2 games
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been suspended two games to start next season.

    Advice: This is from his DUI incident in March when he was pulled over at 2:50 in the morning. KCP is still likely going to receive a big offer sheet from teams like the Nets or even 76ers, but the Pistons are expected to match. For what it's worth, the Pistons did draft a a shooting guard in Luke Kennard. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:18 pm
  • Dante Exum will play in summer league
    Dante Exum will play in the Utah Jazz Summer League, but not in Las Vegas.

    Advice: The Jazz are still waiting for Exum to come around. It's not often you see a player with as much experience as Exum play in summer league, but the 2014 pick has a slew of holes in his game on both ends. Coach Quin Snyder and general manager Dennis Lindsey both challenged Exum this summer, so they'll probably be using him a ton when he's active next month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:40 pm
  • 76ers 'likely' to bring Furkan Korkmaz over
    76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said it's "likely" that Furkan Korkmaz will join the team in 2017-18.

    Advice: This is a complete 180 from Colangelo's comments a few weeks ago, so Korkmaz must've made a strong impression at a recent workout in Philly. Korkmaz is going to play for the Turkish U-20 team this summer, so it's highly unlikely that he will be able to play in the Summer League as well. If the 76ers want to bring him over, they will first have to negotiate a $2 million buyout with his team in Europe. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 am
  • Isaia Cordinier to play Summer League w/ ATL
    Isaia Cordinier will join the Hawks for Summer League.

    Advice: The No. 44 overall selection of the 2016 NBA draft spent last season overseas, but he will be looking to prove to the Hawks that he's ready to come over with a strong showing this summer. It sure seems like the Hawks are ready to rebuild, so Cordinier could be in the mix for minutes in his rookie season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 am
  • Bulls grab Kris Dunn in Jimmy Butler trade
    Bulls acquire G Kris Dunn from the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the Jimmy Butler blockbuster.

    Advice: The entire deal will see Dunn, Zach LaVine and the No. 7 pick sent to Chicago in exchange for Jimmy Butler and the No. 16 overall selection. Dunn should immediately get a chance to start in Chicago, where there is no long-term answer in place at the point guard position. The rebuild has officially begun in the Windy City.

  • Report: Suns shop Jared Dudley to Pelicans?
    The Suns have reportedly spoken to the Pelicans about a trade involving Jared Dudley, likely in exchange for second-round picks.

    Advice: New Orleans holds the No. 40 pick, in addition to the No. 52 pick they acquired from the Wizards for Tim Frazier. Dudley would give the Pelicans an alternative to guys like Solomon Hill, Quincy Pondexter and Dante Cunningham, but it's obviously not a given that this deal will come to fruition.

  • Knicks asking for a ton in KP trade
    The Knicks are ask the Celtics for the No. 3 pick, Brooklyn's pick next year, Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder for Kristaps Porzingis, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

    Advice: This version of the deal wouldn't include Joakim Noah's contract, per the report. This sure is a lot to ask from the Celtics, so it's no surprise they're not willing to meet this asking price. Jaylen Brown also has a close relationship with former Knicks president Isiah Thomas.

  • Isaiah Whitehead says he's going to Summer Lg
    Isaiah Whitehead said he'll be playing in Summer League.

    Advice: The high-energy guard should be a fun sight to see. The arrival of D'Angelo Russell makes it interesting for Whitehead, who has the size to potential play off the ball more. He never really came around as a passer, so the Nets may try to groom him to be more of an off-ball guy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:01 am
  • Swaggy knows LA going in different direction
    Nick Young's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Young declined his player option because he "knows the Lakers are going in a direction."

    Advice: "They were clear with that at the end of the season and the way things went," Bartelstein said. "He felt like this is an opportunity to choose his own destiny and pick the best spot where he can get a chance to contribute at a high level." In other words, Swaggy P is probably not going back to the Lakers. He also may be looking for a place where he can get some minutes. He probably won't be going to the Nets, though.

  • Spurs make Jonathon Simmons a restricted FA
    The Spurs have extended a $1.6 million qualifying offer to make Jonathon Simmons a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Simmons was quietly effective last season, especially while filling in for injured Kawhi Leonard in the playoffs -- in four games vs. the Warriors, he averaged 15.3 points, 1.3 triples, 2.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 27.8 minutes. Danny Green and LaMarcus Aldridge have been mentioned in recent trade rumors, and Pau Gasol is expected to re-negotiate a deal with the Spurs, so the team's willingness to match an offer-sheet for Simmons hinges on a variety of factors.

  • Trey Burke headed to unrestricted free agency
    Washington has decided not to offer Trey Burke a qualifying offer, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.

    Advice: This was a predictable move after Burke fell out of the rotation last season, and in mid-May he said, "I don’t plan on my role being the same next year." The Wizards landed Tim Frazier for a second-round pick on Tuesday, solidifying their backup PG spot, so there was no doubt they'd pass on Burke. No teams have been tied to him yet, but no matter where he lands he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Nick Young declines player option, now a FA
    Nick Young has declined his $5.6 million player option in favor of free agency.

    Advice: Young is 32 years old and it's no surprise to see him chase more long-term money, rather than playing out his deal and testing the market at age 33. He had a minor bounce-back season last year, even showing commitment on the defensive end, but no matter where he lands he won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of points and 3-pointers.

  • Memphis will offer Tony Allen vet's minimum
    The Grizzlies aren't willing to offer Tony Allen more than the veteran's minimum this summer, according to sources of Memphis beat reporter Ronald Tillery.

    Advice: Allen is 35 years old and beginning to lose some of his luster as a defensive stalwart, so it wouldn't make much sense to give him a massive deal. However, he might be able to secure an offer for slightly more than the minimum outside of Memphis. Either way, there won't be many leagues where The Grindfather will be worthy of a draft pick next season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:52 am
  • Langston Galloway will decline player option
    Langston Galloway will decline his player option with the Kings for the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: With Galloway opting out, the Kings officially do not have any point guards on the roster for next season, which perhaps could give them some added incentive to go with De'Aaron Fox on draft day, assuming he's still available when they come on the board with the No. 5 overall selection. As for Galloway, he shouldn't have much trouble finding his next contract, but it's unlikely he'll be a guy worth monitoring in standard fantasy leagues next season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 am
  • Belinelli and Miles Plumlee traded to Atlanta
    The Hornets have traded Marco Belinelli and Miles Plumlee to the Hawks.

    Advice: The Hornets will also send the 41st pick in exchange for the 31st pick and Dwight Howard. Belinelli is 31 and has just one year left on his deal for $6.6 million. He averaged 10.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.4 triples in 24.0 minutes per game for the Hornets last season, but it's hard to see him having a significant role in Atlanta unless they move on from restricted free agent Tim Hardaway Jr. this summer.
