  • Bam Adebayo predicts big year for himself
    Bam Adebayo said he feels he can average 16 points, 10 rebounds and five dimes a game next season.

    Advice: "Just because we play through the elbows, I got a lot of assists off that action. We keep doing that, I feel like I can average 16, 10 and 5," said Adebayo. "I’m looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to the challenge that Spo [coach Erik Spoelstra] is going to give me to accomplish during the season as potentially being the starting center." As a starter last year, Adebayo put in averages of 11.8 points, 9.1 boards, 3.1 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game, so he's primed for a big year with Hassan Whiteside out of the picture and makes sense as an early-round target.

  • Reggie Bullock signs to two-year deal w/ NYK
    Reggie Bullock has officially signed his two-year deal with the Knicks.

    Advice: Bullock initially agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with the Knicks, but after an unanticipated health issue was discovered during his physical, the Knicks and Bullock re-worked the deal on a more team-friendly salary. He reportedly signed for less than the $4.7 million exception and his contract has a player option on Year-2, but we still don't know exactly what ailment he's dealing with. Today, 7:43 am

  • Bruno Caboclo sinks three triples vs. MIN
    Bruno Caboclo shot 3-of-8 from three Monday, scoring 15 points (6-of-12 FGs) with four rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Caboclo played well in Las Vegas over the last week-plus, and the improved perimeter shot makes him a player worth keeping an eye on when training camp begins. Last season was his best as a pro, with the Brazilian shooting 36.9% from three on 1.4 makes per game. It'll be tough to earn major rotation minutes, but Caboclo has improved to the point where he deserves a roster spot. Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Celtics rescind Daniel Theis qualifying offer
    According to Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports, the Celtics have rescinded their qualifying offer to Daniel Theis.

    Advice: Just under two weeks after the Celtics and Theis agreed to a deal worth $10 million over two seasons, the veteran power forward will instead be an unrestricted free agent. The move gets Boston a little more cap space, but it doesn't mean that Theis is done in Boston. According to Smith, the expectation is that Theis will re-sign with Boston using his Early Bird rights. He's likely to once again serve in a backup role this coming season, so there isn't much in the way of fantasy value here. Yesterday, 7:36 pm
  • Boucher named to Summer League second team
    Chris Boucher was named to the Summer League second team, the NBA announced.

    Advice: Boucher is joined by Anfernee Simons, Rui Hachimura, Jaxson Hayes and Lonnie Walker. He played four games and averaged 23.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on 49 percent shooting. Boucher could see an expanded opportunity if the Raptors decide to sell, but he'll be fighting for rotation time until then. Yesterday, 3:05 pm
  • Allen named to Summer League first team
    Jarrett Allen has been named to the Summer League first team, the NBA announced.

    Advice: Allen is joined by Mitchell Robinson, Brandon Clarke, Kendrick Nunn and Nickeil Alexander-Walker. His Summer League ended on a sour note after he left the Nets' final game due to a hard fall, which thankfully wasn't anything serious. In five games, Allen averaged 16.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 2.2 blocks on 61 percent shooting. DeAndre Jordan might steal time from him this season, but Allen clearly has a place in Brooklyn's rotation. Yesterday, 2:59 pm
  • New Orleans releases forward Christian Wood
    The Pelicans have waived Christian Wood.

    Advice: Wood played eight games for New Orleans towards the end of last season, and was actually really productive. He benefited from Anthony Davis getting most nights off down the stretch, averaging 16.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Wood will likely be picked up by another team and is a name to monitor if he lands in a good spot. Yesterday, 2:11 pm

  • Cavaliers waive J.R. Smith; Lakers unlikely
    The Cavaliers have officially waived J.R. Smith.

    Advice: Smith will hit the open market after five seasons in Cleveland and he was a key member of the 2016 championship team. He has long been connected to the Lakers because of his former teammate LeBron James, though ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that they are an unlikely destination. Smith is unlikely to find a big role wherever he lands, leaving him on the periphery of the fantasy landscape. Yesterday, 2:05 pm

  • Wesley Matthews signs two-year deal w/ Bucks
    The Milwaukee Bucks signed Wesley Matthews to a two-year, $5.26 million deal on Monday.

    Advice: The deal includes a player option in year two and Matthews has a good chance of starting at shooting guard for the Bucks this season. Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Ben Simmons agrees to max deal
    Ben Simmons has agreed to a five-year, $170 million maximum contract extension with the Sixers, per Shams Charania.

    Advice: The Sixers offered him the deal back on July 2 and Simmons has agreed to sign it. Simmons' poor shooting didn't keep him off the All-Star Team last season and the sky's the limit as he prepares for his third NBA season. Yesterday, 10:44 am
  • OKC expected to guarantee Nader's contract
    With Monday's deadline to do so, the Thunder are expected to guarantee G Abdel Nader’s contract for next season.

    Advice: Nader appeared in 61 games for OKC last season and averaged 4.0 points in 11 minutes per game. Yesterday, 10:30 am
  • Rockets, Clippers at standstill with Iguodala
    The Rockets and Clippers are still the teams most interested in acquiring Andre Iguodala from the Grizzlies, but neither team is anywhere close to a deal, according to Shams Charania.

    Advice: The Rockets don't want to go deeper into the luxury tax and the Clippers don't want to part with Moe Harkless, who would be the most logical player to move in a deal for Iguodala. The Grizzlies may just end up keeping Iguodala and buying him out later in the season if they can't find a trade proposal they really like, but it still seems unlikely that Iguodala will ever for the Grizzlies. Yesterday, 10:03 am
  • Heat guaranteeing Duncan Robinson contract
    The Heat have informed F Duncan Robinson that they are picking up the $1 million guarantee on his 2019-20 contract.

    Advice: Barring a trade, Robinson is going to be with the Heat this season, although he's probably not going to see a lot of playing time. Yesterday, 8:35 am
  • Henry Ellesnson to sign two-way with Nets
    Free agent F Henry Ellenson is signing a two-way contract with the Brooklyn Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Advice: The Woj bombs are more like fire crackers these days, and Ellenson failed to make much of a splash in Detroit and New York last season. The Nets are loaded, so It would likely take injuries to make Ellenson relevant this season, and it will be interesting to see how much time he spends in the G League. Yesterday, 8:02 am

  • Dwight Howard interested in Los Angeles?
    Dwight Howard, who is expected to be waived by the Grizzlies, says he'd be interested in playing in Los Angeles.

    Advice: "I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I do love L.A.," Howard said. "Staples Center is going to be rocking this season. When I played there it was rocking every night. The atmosphere is crazy, not just for the Lakers but the Clippers too." The Lakers already have DeMarcus Cousins and JaVale McGee at center, while the Clippers have Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell in the middle. And Howard's first go round with the Lakers didn't end well. Regardless of where he ends up, Howard's days as a relevant fantasy center are probably over. Yesterday, 6:10 am
  • Anthony Davis bows out of FIBA World Cup
    Anthony Davis will not participate in Team USA's training camp this summer, and will remove himself from consideration for the FIBA World Cup.

    Advice: Davis wants to focus entirely on gearing up for a championship run alongside LeBron James this season, so he's paring down his non-NBA hoops responsibilities. He's still committed to playing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, however, and will be present at Team USA's training camp to support teammates. The extra offseason rest should help AD stay healthy this season, which is great news for prospective fantasy owners. Sunday, 9:01 pm
  • Grizzlies, Ivan Rabb delay contract due date
    The Grizzlies and Ivan Rabb have agreed to delay his contract guarantee date until mid-October, according to Michael Wallace of

    Advice: Memphis was initially due to decide on Rabb's $1.6 million salary this week, but now they'll get to evaluated him during training camp and the preseason. The former No. 35 pick seemed to plateau last season with similar production and playing time, but his offensive efficiency dipped (54.7% FGs, 71.0% FTs on limited attempts). Even if he makes the roster, his fantasy value is nonexistent in a rotation that includes Jaren Jackson Jr., Brandon Clarke, Jonas Valanciunas and Miles Plumlee. Sunday, 7:36 pm
  • Rodions Kurucs quiet in Nets' loss in Vegas
    Rodions Kurucs had a forgettable game on Sunday, shooting 1-of-8 for two points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Kurucs came in averaging 10.8 points on 53% shooting, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks in his previous five Summer League games. Even with Kevin Durant sidelined by Achilles' surgery, Kurucs path to fantasy relevance is impeded by Taurean Prince, Wilson Chandler, Caris LeVert and even Dzanan Musa. As things stand, Kurucs isn't a guy to target in fantasy. Sunday, 7:07 pm
  • Tyler Lydon agrees to deal with Sacramento
    Tyler Lydon has agreed to a two-year deal with the Kings, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Advice: Lydon was picked 24th overall in the 2017 draft by the Nuggets, but didn't make an impact in his two years in Denver. He's not on the fantasy radar. Sunday, 3:24 pm

    Updating a previous report, Omri Casspi has not signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

    Advice: The club is interested in signing Casspi, but the two sides have reportedly yet to discuss the terms of a potential deal. Casspi is still evaluating his NBA opportunities. Sunday, 2:56 pm
