Player Notes

  • Evan Fournier hits 5-of-17 shots for 16 pts
    Evan Fournier helped France to a bronze medal finish over Australia on Sunday, tallying 16 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers and three turnovers across 36 minutes.

    Advice: Fournier didn't shoot the ball all that well, going 5-of-17 from the field, but he wasn't the only French player to struggle with his shot, as they connected on just 37.9% of their attempts as a team. It was a grind-it-out kind of game, with both teams combining for just 126 points, but France did a particularly good job of denying Team Australia the 3-point shot and managed to eke out a third-place finish at the FIBA tournament.

  • Joe Ingles nets 17 points in loss to France
    Joe Ingles went 7-of-11 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line on his way to a team-high 17 points across 34 minutes in a tough loss to France on Sunday.

    Advice: Ingles added five boards, three dimes, one triple, one steal and three turnovers while he was out there, and while the Australian team came up short, Ingles was superb throughout the tournament. He's likely going to have a slightly reduced role next season in Utah with the addition of Bojan Bogdanovic, but he still should be able to offer some fantasy value while operating as a facilitator in the second unit. He'll be worth a late-round look on draft day. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:01 am

  • Bucks to offer Giannis a supermax extension
    Bucks general manager Jon Horst was asked about the long-term contract situation of their star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, at a recent fan town hall event.

    Advice: Horst mentioned that they can't negotiate right now, but the team will definitely be offering Giannis a supermax extension next summer when he becomes eligible. Sometimes the supermax can scare teams off, but this is a no-brainer for the reigning MVP and the Bucks. They will be looking to keep Giannis in Milwaukee for a long, long time.

  • Trevor Ariza not projected to get much time
    James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area projects a much smaller role for Trevor Ariza in Sacramento compared to what he's been tasked with the last few seasons.

    Advice: Ham mentions that Harrison Barnes will start at the three and likely play at least 20 minutes there, with World Cup star Bogdan Bogdanovic absorbing 12 or so minutes there, too. That doesn't leave Ariza much playing time, unless coach Luke Walton goes small more than expected. He was a top-100 player last season, but Ham's projection of 16-18 minutes per game will severely limit Ariza's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:46 pm
  • MKG expected to lose playing time
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was informed the Hornets will look to youth and development this season.

    Advice: MKG picked up his $13 million player option, but the Hornets are likely going to cut his minutes in a big way. Miles Bridges is already set to be the team's starting power forward, and PJ Washington is more of a natural four at 6'7" with coach James Borrego saying he wants to play the rookie a lot. Even in a deep league, MKG isn't a target in drafts. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:46 am
