3 months agoThe Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets have completed a deal that sends point guard Russell Westbrook to Houston, pairing him once again with former teammate James Harden. With Paul George no longer in Oklahoma City, Westbrook was set to have a huge season statistically, but he'll go back to playing a role similar to the one he played last year, when he saw a drop in shot attempts and averaged 22.9 points per game, down almost 10 points from his pre-George numbers. Westbrook will also see a reduction in assists playing beside another ball-dominant player, and it would be a surprise to see him lead the league in that category for the third straight year. Overall, Westbrook's value takes a slight hit, though he'll still probably go at the end of the first in fantasy drafts.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

3 months agoChicago Bulls rookie point guard Coby White is expected to take a backseat to some of the team's other options this upcoming season. Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said that White's got a lot of learning to do and that the speed of the game could be an issue for White, while head coach Jim Boylen has already said Kris Dunn is the team's starting point guard. With Tomas Satoransky in the picture too, it doesn't look like White's going to be fantasy relevant in the early stages of his rookie campaign.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: 670 The Score - Cody Westerlund

3 months agoRestricted free agent forward Kelly Oubre Jr. has signed a two-year deal to remain with the Phoenix Suns. Oubre is a solid player who's likely to end up starting at the three for the Suns, and he has solid fantasy upside as a guy who can give Phoenix something close to 15 points and five rebounds per game. Last season was also Oubre's most efficient year as an NBA shooter, and he can be a good fantasy pick in the later rounds of fantasy drafts because of his ability to do a lot of things on the basketball court, even if he isn't going to excel at any one thing.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

3 months agoShooting guard Avery Bradley is expected to sign a two-year, $9.7 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers upon his clearing of waivers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Grizzlies waived Bradley earlier in the summer, paving the way for the former NBA All-Defensive First Team selection to join a revamped Lakers roster. The second year of Bradley's contract is reported to have a player option, as he'll join Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on the wing in 2019-20. After showcasing his offensive game (16.1 points per contest) over 14 games with Memphis to conclude last season, he may revert to his traditional role of defensive stopper with Los Angeles, which could stunt his upward fantasy trajectory.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

3 months agoThe Lakers have signed free agent center DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year, $3.5 million deal. The 28-year-old, who played just 30 regular season games with the Warriors in 2019 after recovering from an Achilles injury the year prior, averaged only 16.3 points and 8.2 boards per contest while playing a career-low 25.7 minutes. He will be reunited with former Pelicans teammates Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo in his new home in Los Angeles and will look to remain healthy in hopes of getting paid next Summer.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

3 months agoFree-agent shooting guard/small forward Danny Green (Raptors) plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, sources said late on Friday. He was also being pursued by the Dallas Mavericks. The deal is reportedly for two years and $30 million. It isn't quite the member of the Toronto Raptors championship squad that they were looking for, as Kawhi Leonard instead decided to join the Los Angeles Clippers. But Green isn't a bad addition, as he'll help the Lakers perimeter shooting. He might get a chance to join the starting five, and should be a decent middle- to late-round fantasy option in most leagues for his 3-pointers.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Shams Charania

3 months agoThe Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a four-year, $142 million deal with forward Kawhi Leonard on Saturday. Leonard, who averaged a career-high 26.6 points per game while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field with the Raptors last season, will undoubtedly be a top-five selection in upcoming fantasy drafts, despite being paired with newly acquired forward Paul George and missing a few games due to load management purposes.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 months agoNew Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson (knee) suffered a knee-to-knee hit in the first half of Friday's Summer League debut against former college teammate R.J. Barrett and the New York Knicks. The injury was to his left knee and he was unable to return. The injury is not expected to be serious, the team is likely taking a cautious approach with the No. 1 overall pick. It was a crazy game at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, as the game was eventually suspended in the second half due to a 7.1 earthquake centered near Ridgecrest, Calif., causing the giant speakers and scoreboard to sway.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Cassidy Hubbarth

3 months agoForward Paul George is being traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Clippers in exchange for forward Danilo Gallinari, guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and four unprotected first-round draft picks. George, who will now join forward Kawhi Leonard in Los Angeles, had the most productive season of his career in 2019, finishing the year by averaging 28 points and 8.2 rebounds while shooting nearly 39 percent from deep. He will likely see a slight reduction in production with Leonard in the mix, but he could easily find himself in the MVP conversation once again this season and should be considered a first-round pick in upcoming fantasy drafts.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
Share:
3 months agoThe Detroit Pistons have signed veteran power forward Markieff Morris. The Pistons starting frontcourt of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond is due to take up most of the minutes there, however, Morris should fill in across the forward/center lines throughout the year. He used to play a little bit of small forward and could potentially fill-in there too when Detroit wants to go massive. Morris took a step back last season as a neck injury cut into his year and possibly hampered his play but could be due for a bounce-back if fully healthy. He's not someone to target in most fantasy drafts and should be an occasional streamer at best.--Kev Mahserejian - RotoBallerSource: Shams Charania

3 months agoThe Phoenix Suns have just been swindled out of one of their better young assets in De'Anthony Melton for the sole reason of dumping Josh Jackson. Jackson, the former fourth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has had troubles, on and off the court, and now finds himself in a new home with an abundance of young talent and competence. This is an opportunity to rehab his game and image if legal troubles do not interfere. In this deal, the Grizzlies sent over veteran shooting guard Kyle Korver and defensive-minded point guard Jevon Carter and received two second-round picks (one conditional). Korver's partially guaranteed deal is reportedly getting bought out, and he will receive interest from the Lakers, Sixers, and Bucks.--Kev Mahserejian - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

3 months agoCleveland Cavaliers center Dylan Osetkowski was uber-aggressive on both sides of the floor during Tuesday’s Summer League loss to the Utah Jazz. In addition to his three steals, Osetkowski took a game-high 16 shots, making only four. He would go on to finish with 14 points and six rebounds, knocking down a pair of threes. The former Texas big man will have to impress mightily during Summer League to snag a roster spot, but boasts an intriguing offensive repertoire for his 6-foot-9 frame.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 months agoCleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Naz Mitrou-Long got his first taste of NBA action as a member of the Utah Jazz over the past two seasons, but went for 17 points against his former team Tuesday. With opportunities aplenty on the unproven Cavaliers roster, Mitrou-Long is eyeing a spot with his diverse offensive arsenal. He logged 30 minutes in the loss Tuesday, the most of any player to take the floor, also adding a pair of rebounds and assists.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 months agoUtah Jazz point guard Justin Wright-Foreman notched 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting during Tuesday’s Summer League win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Competition for the point guard slot on the Jazz roster has ramped up significantly with the addition of both Mike Conley and Emmanuel Mudiay, but Utah thought highly enough of Wright-Foreman to select him in the second round of last month’s NBA Draft. A collegiate standout at Hofstra, Wright-Foreman averaged 27.1 points per game during his senior year, and to open the summer, he has picked up offensively where he left off.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 months agoUtah Jazz center Tony Bradley has wasted little time making an impact during Summer League, having taken his game up a notch during Tuesday’s win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bradley had a double-double in Monday’s opener, but went for a robust 26 points and 16 rebounds Tuesday, finishing 9-for-13 from the field and 8-for-10 from the free-throw stripe. The big man added three blocks across his 27 minutes, making an emphatic statement that he should be in line for minutes behind Jazz starting center Rudy Gobert when the regular season opens in October.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
