The Houston Rockets have selected USC guard De'anthony Melton with the 46th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The Oklahoma City Thunder acquired the 45th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, Kentucky guard Hamidou Diallo, from the Charlotte Hornets, who had acquired that pick from the Brooklyn Nets. Diallo struggled during his one season as a Wildcat, often showing an inability to hit jump shots and to create for himself. He can make plays... Read More

The Orlando Magic traded down in the 2018 NBA Draft to take Maryland forward Justin Jackson with the 43rd pick.

Jackson has potential on both the offensive and defensive end, but right now on offense he's... Read More

The Detroit Pistons have selected Miami guard Bruce Brown Jr. with the 42nd pick in the NBA Draft. Brown struggles as a shooter, but he can take the ball to the basket and excels as the passer in pick-and-roll situations. His abilities on the defensive end could help him crack the Pistons guard rotation, but... Read More

The Denver Nuggets have traded for Kentucky forward Jarred Vanderbilt, the 41st pick in this year's NBA Draft. Vanderbilt missed 17 games last season for the Wildcats due to a combination of foot and ankle injuries, but he showed promise as a rebounder and passer during his time on the court. However, Vanderbilt's jump shot... Read More

The Los Angeles Lakers picked Michigan center Moritz Wagner with the 25th pick in the NBA Draft. Wagner can work as a stretch five for the Lakers who is capable of rebounding the ball -- he averaged 7.1 rebounds per game last season for the Wolverines -- but there are concerns about him on the... Read More

The San Antonio Spurs have picked Miami guard Lonnie Walker with the 18th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. With Dejounte Murray as the starting point guard, Walker won't be asked to do too much on the defensive end or play with the ball in his hand much, allowing Walker to focus on his shooting.... Read More

The Utah Jazz have selected guard Grayson Allen with the 21st pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Allen played four seasons for the Blue Devils, with his sophomore season representing his peak. If his numbers from that season -- 21.6 points per game on 41.7 percent shooting from deep -- are a good barometer of... Read More

The Charlotte Hornets have traded the 11th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, to the Clippers for the 12th pick, Michigan State forward Miles Bridges. Bridges was a 37.5 percent shooter from deep in two seasons for the Spartans, averaging 17 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Bridges is an excellent athlete who... Read More

The Los Angeles Clippers have traded with the Charlotte Hornets for the 11th overall pick, Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

The Washington Wizards have selected Oregon forward Troy Brown with the 15th pick in the NBA Draft. Brown, who averaged 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game for the Ducks last season, is a good ball-handler but there are concerns about his jumper. He shot under 30 percent from three last season and... Read More

The Denver Nuggets have added a high-upside rookie with the 14th pick in the NBA Draft, selecting Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr. After missing most of last season with a back injury, there were major question marks about his health, which led to Porter falling from his preseason status as a top-five pick to his...

Bamba... Read More

The Dallas Mavericks have traded the fifth overall pick and a future first-round pick to the Hawks for the third overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, guard Luka Doncic. Doncic, who was thought of by many as the best player in this year's draft class, will play next to Dennis Smith Jr. in a... Read More

The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the eighth pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. After trading Kyrie Irving to Boston before the 2017 season, the Cavaliers were in need of a point guard with upside, and they'll hope that they've gotten that in Sexton. Sexton averaged 19.2 points per game... Read More

The Chicago Bull have selected Duke center Wendell Carter Jr. with the seventh pick in the NBA Draft. Carter played one season for the Blue Devils, where he averaged 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game.

Dedmon, who started in 46 of the 62 games he played in last season, is coming off his best season in the league. He averaged 10 points and 7.9 rebounds per game last year for... Read More

Once you get outside of the lottery, the NBA Draft becomes really hit or miss. In 2017, the 16 players picked in the first round after the lottery featured two guys who didn't play in the NBA last season, but it also produced useful fantasy players like Jarrett Allen and Kyle Kuzma. In part three... Read More

There are five games in the WNBA on Tuesday, with just two teams -- Connecticut and Phoenix -- sitting this one out. With those two teams representing two of the four best records in the league, it leaves us with a pretty wide open slate of games. Picking a DFS lineup won't be the easiest... Read More

In the first part of this mock draft, I looked in depth at the (possible) top five picks in this year's NBA Draft. In this one, we'll look at the rest of this year's lottery, picks six through 14. These players don't have the same star power and high expectations that the top five picks... Read More

Welcome back to RotoBaller's basketball coverage. Did you enjoy the playoffs? The thrill of, uhhh, another Warriors/Cavaliers Finals? So excite! Much wow! Surprises! (Okay, I'm taking this lack of enthusiasm too far -- both conference finals were fun and exciting and a Chris Paul injury away from bringing us something very unexpected.) But now, with... Read More

It's another Sunday of WNBA action and with the NBA Finals mercifully over, we can concentrate all of our basketball attention on a league where the champion wasn't preordained two years ago. The Lynx have shown some signs of righting their ship, but Connecticut is still the toast of the league. Meanwhile, we can start... Read More

Here at RotoBaller, we just completed a PPR mock draft, which means it's time for me to mock that draft. Welcome to the official roast of the 12 members of our crew who participated. I'm going to comb back over our draft with a fine tooth comb and let you know who made the biggest... Read More

Before you read any farther, check out the first part of this series, where I look at five receivers who I think are risers in dynasty right now. Don't worry...I'll wait for you to read that. Alright, welcome back! Now that I've covered some names that you should target, let's talk about five wide receivers... Read More

Another week of WNBA action is behind us and the Minnesota Lynx continue to struggle, sitting at just 2-4 with a game today against the 3-1 Sparks. A road loss today wouldn't necessarily mean panic time, but it would make Minnesota's chances at grabbing a top two seed feel more difficult, especially with how Los... Read More

When it comes to dynasty, the season never ends. Sure, that statement has become cliche at this point, but it's also true: a random Thursday in May can become an important dynasty moment because reports emerge that Chris Godwin is going to get more playing time for the Buccaneers. Some people are smiling because they've... Read More

Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Keke Coutee is expected to challenge Braxton Miller for the slot receiver role this season, according to Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson.

We're over a week into this WNBA season and the excitement level still seems to be at an all-time high. We've already had a memorable game between the Sparks and the Lynx and Liz Cambage's return has Dallas feeling good about their playoff hopes. A'ja Wilson is already a force for the Aces. Let's take... Read More

2018 was an exceptionally strong year for rookies, especially at the running back position, where players like Alvin Kamara, Kareem Hunt, and Leonard Fournette put up strong numbers. There's been some talk in the fantasy football Twittersphere that some of those players could decline in their second years, and I get that. Kamara and Hunt... Read More
