7/1:Dallas Mavericks forward Doug McDermott has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Indiana Pacers. McDermott, who will be entering his fifth season in the NBA and will be playing on his fifth team, averaged 7.8 points on 42.6 percent shooting from three last season with the Knicks and the Mavericks. During his 26 game tenure with Dallas, McDermott saw those numbers increase to 9.0 points per game and 49.4 percent shooting from distance, a sign that former Creighton star might finally be putting things together in the NBA. We'll find out if that 26 game sample is a sign of things to come or a just a fluke with McDermott in Indiana, where he'll be a key bench piece for last year's fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. He's got decent fantasy upside and should be available at a low enough cost that busting won't hurt fantasy owners too much.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
7/1:Houston Rockets small forward Trevor Ariza has agreed with the Phoenix Suns on a one-year deal to sign with the team once the free agent signing period begins. Ariza spent the past four seasons with the Rockets and is coming off a year in which he averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 36.8 percent from three. While a crowded forward rotation makes it tough to predict what the Suns will look like this season, it stands to reason that they wouldn't have given Ariza $15 million if they didn't plan to have him on the court extensively. Expect similar numbers to last season, though pay attention to his playing time down the stretch if the Suns don't show massive improvement by the second half the season, as players like rookie forward Mikal Bridges could gobble up some of those minutes if the team stops trying to win games.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Shams Charania
7/1:Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic has agreed on a five-year, $147 million max contract with the team. Jokic showed consistent improvement across the board this past season, averaging career-highs in points, rebounds, and assists in addition to shooting 49 percent from the field along with an impressive 39 percent from deep. He also remained relatively healthy, appearing in 75 games and finished the season as a top-five fantasy center, something that will likely happen again by the end of the 2019 campaign.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Ian Begley
7/1:Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant has agreed to terms that will keep him with the team, at least for one more year. The deal, which includes a player option for 2019-2020, would pay the former MVP $30 million this upcoming season and possibly $31.5 million the following year. Durant was productive and flourished as a member of one of the league's most explosive offenses, averaging 26.4 points and shooting an impressive 41 percent from behind the arc, the second-best average from deep of his career. He was also solid on the defensive end, finishing the year with nearly two blocks per game, but was plagued with various injuries throughout the season that forced him to miss 14 games as a result. Nonetheless, he is a top-10 fantasy option who will benefit fantasy owners immensely, especially if he can remain healthy and on the court.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Chris Haynes
7/1:Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul will remain with the team on a four-year, $160 million max contract. Paul continued to produce in his first year with the club, averaging 18.6 points to go along with 7.9 assists per game. He also averaged 46 percent shooting from the field and an acceptable 38 percent from behind the arc. However, consistent injuries throughout the years have offset some of the benefits that he brings to the table, something to keep in mind when drafting your team this upcoming season.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
7/1:Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George has reportedly agreed to four-year, $137 million max contract to return to the team. The eight-year veteran averaged 21.9 points per game in his first season with OKC, a slight decline from his last year in Indiana. He also averaged roughly one rebound less and also saw a dramatic decline in his usage percentage, dropping to 25.4, down from 30.1 percent in the season prior. However, behind guard Russell Westbrook, George will continue to be the focal point of the Thunder offense and will see plenty of action this upcoming season, making him a top-25 fantasy option for the 2019 campaign.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
6/29:New York Knicks center Enes Kanter exercised his $18.6 million player option and will remain with the team in 2018-2019. Kanter, who was acquired by the team last season from OKC in the deal involving forward Carmelo Anthony, averaged a double-double last season. He also averaged 59 percent shooting from the field in addition to shooting 84 percent from the charity stripe, both career-bests. However, consistent issues with back spasms forced him to miss 11 games last season, something fantasy owners will need to take into consideration when drafting their team.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Ian Begley
6/29:Sacramento Kings forward Garrett Temple will remain will remain with the team this upcoming season. Temple, who opted in to the deal on Friday and will make $8 million dollars, averaged a career-high 8.4 points per contest last season. He also shot a respectable 39 percent from behind the arc and started 35 of 65 games in 2018, filling in at various times throughout the season. Though he will make an impact serving as a mentor for the team’s young up-and-coming roster, stellar fantasy performances will be few and far between. As a result, he will be better served left on the wire until he shows signs that he will see the court on a consistent basis.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Marc Spears
6/29:Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball (knee) is expected to be ready to go for the start of the season after being diagnosed with a tear in his left meniscus. Ball dealt with the injury, along with various other ailments, throughout all of last season and suited up for only 52 games as a result. Though he sported a miserable 36 percent average from the field, he concluded his rookie campaign averaging a respectable 10.2 points, 7.2 assists, 6.9 boards, and nearly two steals per contest. If he ends up losing time during the regular season, look for guard Josh Hart get some extra minutes, at least for right now. However, with free agency slated to begin on July 1st, a lot could change come the start of the 2018-2019 season.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: USA Today
6/28:Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young will exercise his $13.7 million option and remain with the team in 2018-2019. Young was very durable throughout the course of last season, starting 81 games for the club despite it being his 11th year of service in the league. The veteran averaged 32.2 minutes per outing in addition to averaging 11.8 points, 6.3 boards, and a solid 48 percent shooting from the field. Though forward Domantas Sabonis flashed a few glimpses of brilliance at times filling in for center Myles Turner for a good chunk of the season, Young’s job starting at the four appears to be locked up, at least for now. As a result, he will be a welcome addition to any fantasy roster, especially in nine-category leagues where he can make an impact in field goals, steals, and minutes.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: David Aldridge
6/26:San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green has exercised his $10 million player option and will remain with the team in 2018-2019. The 31-year-old is coming off another disappointing season that was plagued with a nagging groin injury that forced him to miss 12 games as a result. He also underwhelmed on the offensive end, averaging only 8.6 points per contest in addition to shooting a subpar 38 percent from the field and 36 percent from deep. Though he will have an occasional solid showing, a spot on fantasy rosters should only be reserved for him in deeper leagues until he demonstrates that he can turn things around, something that likely won't happen anytime soon.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrain Wojnarowski
6/26:The Washington Wizards have acquired guard Austin Rivers from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for center Marcin Gortat. There are two main fantasy takeaways from this deal for the Wizards. First, Rivers should step into the role as the third guard off theread more...
6/26:The Los Angeles Clippers have acquired center Marcin Gortat from the Wizards in exchange for guard Austin Rivers. Gortat is 34 and is coming off a season in which he averaged under 10 points per game for the first time since the 2009-2010 season. He also averaged just 7.6 rebounds and 0.7 blocks per game. Gortat has played in all 82 games in three of the last four seasons, though, so his ability to stay on the court should give him some fantasy value this coming season if he stays with the Clippers. That's dependent on Los Angeles letting current starting center DeAndre Jordan walk in free agency, but in that scenario Gortat would likely rank outside the top 20 at his position, especially with a talented backup center in Montrezl Harrell taking a good amount of his minutes.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
6/24:Atlanta Hawks forward/center Mike Muscala has exercised his $5.0 million player option to remain with Atlanta for the 2018-2019 season. Muscala's 7.6 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.0 minutes per game averages do not jump off the page, but he was a valuable piece in DFS while Atlanta dealt with injuries to frontcourt players John Collins and Dewayne Dedmon. Muscala will be stuck in the bench role again the start the upcoming season, but injuries come more often than not and Muscala could be forced into a more prominent role at any point.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
6/24:Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony declined to exercise the early termination option on the final year of his contract, thus remaining with OKC this upcoming season. Anthony, who will earn $27.9 million in 2018-2019 had the worst season of his tenured career, averaging an underwhelming 16.2 points, 32.1 minutes, and shot 40 percent from the floor. With the Thunder unable to make serious moves in free agency, the veteran will have ample opportunity to see the court as well as an increase in production if forward Paul George doesn't remain with the team.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Royce Young
