• Bradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal totaled 28 points (6-for-15 FG, 14-of-15 FT), 11 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

    Beal got a very generous whistle on a few occasions to help get this line up there, but he also did a nice job trying to keep teammates involved on a night where a few different players got hot. Beal's six turnovers were a product of increased playmaking duties and some strong defense from the Raptors, and that's just what fantasy owners will have to deal with as Beal absorbs John Wall's usage and duties.

  • Kevin Durant - SF - Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are expected to meet with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson this week.

    KD has a $31M player option that he is expected to decline despite the severe achilles injury that will sideline him for most of next season. Thompson on the other hand, out as well with a torn ACL, will be an unrestricted free agent and will have surgery later this week. The injuries have not changed the feeling inside the organization regarding the pair's potential future with the team. Warriors owner Joe Lacob has publicly stated that he would give each player a max extension and the intention has been that the team would like to re-sign both players and continue their dynasty.

  • Kawhi Leonard - SF - Toronto Raptors

    NBA insider Chris Broussard said that based on the recent news he has received, Kawhi Leonard will not be signing with the Lakers.

    The Lakers had joined the Clippers, Knicks, and Raptors as the four teams reportedly with the best chance to sign the two-time Finals MVP, but Broussard believes the Lakers are out on The Board Man’s services. Leonard is a Los Angeles native and many around the league believe his desire to win championships could give the Lakers the upper-hand but that doesn’t seem to be the case right now. Kawhi is expected to take some meetings but we haven’t heard anything about him visiting the Lakers.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - PF - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo has won the 2018-2019 MVP award.

    It was only a matter of time until Antetokounmpo would start to wreak havoc upon the league and that day came sooner rather than later. There are still obvious flaws to his game, but it is a regular season award and the Greek Freak had a historic regular season. He led the team to the best record in the league and the Bucks team and staff brought home a lot of well-deserved hardware tonight.

  • Jon Horst - Team - Milwaukee Bucks

    Jon Horst has been awarded the Executive of the Year award.

    Horst added Coach Budenholzer and retooled the roster to perfectly fit Giannis Antetokoumpo and his style of play. This led to the best record in the NBA and to a team that many believed to be the favorites to come out of the east. Obviously this was a regular season award, because Masai Ujiri came in fourth place and if voting were done today it would look a lot different.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert has won the 2018-2018 Defensive Player of the Year Award.

    Gobert helped anchor one of the best defenses in the league and this makes it the second consecutive year he's taken home the award. The Jazz are always steady due to his efforts on that end of the floor and the team's identity starts with him.

  • Mike Budenholzer - Team - Milwaukee Bucks

    Mike Budenholzer has been named the Coach of the Year for the 2018-2019 season.

    In his first season as the Bucks’ coach, Budenholzer helped propel the team to an NBA-best 60 wins. The Bucks revamped their offense and did their best to play through Giannis Antetokounmpo’s strengths and the drastic shift in performance compared to years past makes this a well deserved award.

  • Lou Williams - SG - Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams collected his third Kia NBA Sixth Man Award on Monday night, winning it over Domantas Sabonis and Montrezl Harrell.

    Williams wasn't needed quite as much this season due to the heath of his teammates. That caused his minutes to drop from 32.8 to 26.6 per game, but he still scored 20.0 points per game and even increased his rebounds and assists to career-highs.

  • Mike Conley - PG - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley won two awards Monday night that were voted on by the players, the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award and the Sportsmanship Award.

    It's nice to see Conley getting some attention this summer. This is his third Sportsmanship Award, and he'll be taking that and his Teammate of the Year Award to probably the best team he's ever been a part of in Utah. Now let's see if he can get his first All Star nod, too.

  • Pascal Siakam - PF - Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam took home the Kia Most Improved Player Award, beating De'Aaron Fox and D'Angelo Russell.

    This award was seemingly wrapped up back in November. Siakam exploded this season, improving significantly is every fantasy category (excluding turnovers). He finished the regular season with per-game averages of 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 threes on 54.9 percent from the field and 78.5 percent from the line. His three-point percentage has increased from 14.3 to 22.0 to 36.9 as well. Whether or not Kawhi Leonard returns, Siakam should easily make his way into the top-40 ranks next season.
