Agreements in Principle

  • Ahmad Caver
    G, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies have signed G Ahmad Caver to a contract on Tuesday while waiving guard Dusty Hannahs in a corresponding move.

    The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, but it's likely to get Caver on the team's G League affiliate. The undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion, Caver, does not hold any fantasy value.

  • Walter Lemon Jr.
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers have signed G Walter Lemon Jr. to an unspecified contract on Thursday.

    Lemon Jr. got a lot of run for the Bulls down the stretch last season as they dealt with a multitude of injuries, and actually performed quite admirably. If Lemon were to make the team, he'd be a deep reserve.


  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    The Rockets and Eric Gordon have agreed on a four-year, $75.6 million contract extension.

    Gordon gets three years, $54.5 million guaranteed with the fourth year added if he makes the All-Star team or if the Rockets win a championship during the course of the contract. Gordon was on the last year of his old deal but is now locked up through his 34th birthday on the guaranteed portion. He has been top-5 in the league in triples per game in all three of his seasons with the Rockets and it should be more of the same this season. He doesn't provide much else from a fantasy standpoint and shot only 40.8 percent from the field last year which had his value down to around the top-150 range.

  • Caris LeVert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets and Caris LeVert have agreed to terms on a three-year, $52.5 million contract extension, as per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    This makes sense for the Nets, who have long extolled their love for LeVert's long-term outlook. This sounds like they're fully committed to making him a core player. Enjoy his upside this season, as he will likely take a usage hit when Kevin Durant returns to full health and takes the floor.

  • Justin Patton
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Thunder have signed C Justin Patton to a contract on Tuesday.

    Patton will find himself in a deep-reserve role behind Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel with the Thunder. With the Thunder in the midst of a rebuild it wouldn’t be inconceivable for Patton, a former first-round pick in 2017, to find himself in the rotation should the team receive a suitable offer for Adams.


  • Michael Beasley
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons.

    Beasley was initially leaning towards accepting a deal in China, but a stint with the Pistons should obviously trump that. He will likely be the primary backup of Blake Griffin. Look to him as a DFS punt play on days where Griffin sits out due to load management.

  • Jaylen Nowell
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are signing Jaylen Nowell to a four-year deal, with three years of team options and a guaranteed $1.4 million in year one.

    A second-round pick out of Washington, Nowell can shoot, and he was the Pac-12 player of the year in 2019. He won't have much fantasy value next season as he'll be buried on the depth chart, but is an intriguing name to watch should minutes become available for him.

  • Vince Carter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter has agreed to a one-year deal with the Hawks, per Adrian Wojanrowski.

    The expectation is that Carter will retire at the end of this season. This upcoming year with be Carter's 22nd in the league, the most of anyone in NBA history, and you can expect that he'll receive a fond farewell tour when the Hawks hit the road. VC played 17.5 minutes per game last season and can still contribute on the floor, but he is unlikely to be a major part of Atlanta's rotation.

  • Sindarius Thornwell
    SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sindarius Thornwell has reached an agreement with the Cavs on a one-year deal.

    It was no secret that the Cavs had their eye on Thornwell, so this move comes as no surprise. He will have a ceiling as a deep-league contributor as a member of the Cavs' second unit, should he make his way into their regular season rotation.

  • Alan Williams
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Alan Williams is expected to sign with Russian team Lokomotiv Krasnodar.

    Williams was a DFS and G-League machine, but only appeared in five games for the Nets last season. He is likely getting a more lucrative offer to player overseas.

  • R.J. Hunter
    SG, Boston Celtics

    R.J. Hunter is expected to sign with the Turkish club Turk Telecom.

    Hunter has only appeared in in 45 NBA games for a total of 395 minutes. The former first round pick is only 25 years old and will have ample opportunity to showcase himself overseas.

  • James Palmer
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are expected to add James Palmer to their training camp roster.

    Palmer led the Suns summer league team with 14.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.8 triples and 1.5 steals after going undrafted out of Nebraska following a four-year college career. The Clippers do have two open roster rosters as it stands but even if Palmer makes the team, he will not be fantasy relevant.

  • Ray Spalding
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Ray Spalding is expected to sign a partially guaranteed deal with the Atlanta Hawks.

    Spalding will take on the team's 14th roster spot, giving him a chance to make the squad once training camp rolls around. He has had two unmemorable stints in Dallas in Phoenix to start his career, and doesn't figure to get much burn in his next one with Atlanta.

  • Deng Adel
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Deng Adel and the Nets have an agreement in principle on an Exhibit 10 deal.

    Adel played 19 games with the Cavaliers last season and will be lucky to see that much action again with the Nets this season. Adel can be ignored in fantasy drafts.

  • Antonius Cleveland
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have signed G Antonius Cleveland to a two-way contract.

    Cleveland should spend the majority of the season on the Mavs G-League team and carries no fantasy value for the upcoming season.
