July 24, 2018, 4:02 pmMarkel Brown - G - International
Markel Brown has signed with Turkish team Darussafaka.
Brown played in four games with the Rockets last season. He'll look to put up big numbers overseas and secure another NBA look when his Turkish season ends, though at 26 years old and with just four NBA games under his belt in the last two years it might be a steep climb.

April 21, 2019, 6:17 pmKlay Thompson - G - Golden State Warriors
Klay Thompson scored 32 points in Sunday's Game 4 win against the Clippers.
It was a classic "Klay game" in this one as Steph Curry never got anything going but Thompson wasn't missing early on. He finished 12-for-20 from the floor and a nice 6-for-9 from beyond the arc. Thompson finally got going after averaging 13.7 points per game across the first three.

Carry on with your day.

Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Bucks.
Griffin returned for Game 3, Detroit's first home playoff game in three years, and looks good to go for Game 4. It's unlikely to help Detroit as the Bucks have been in full control of this series from the tip.

April 21, 2019, 4:25 pmDarren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers
Darren Collison dropped 19 points, five assists, six rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers in Sunday's loss to the Celtics.
Collison was asked to take on a bigger load with Victor Oladipo out. His field goal attempts, assists and points rose 1.5, 0.6 and 2.9 per game respectively after the All-Star game. He had similar numbers in the playoffs but, like the rest of the team, the efficiency was just not there. He's an unrestricted free agent this summer and with Aaron Holiday waiting in the wings, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Pacers let Collison walk. Victor Oladipo's health will certainly play a factor in what the Pacers do at guard this offseason, as well.
April 21, 2019, 4:15 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner scored 13 points with two blocks and seven rebounds on Sunday as the Pacers lost to the Celtics.
Turner had a down series against Boston with a lot of credit going to the defensive wizard Al Horford. Turner was expected to take on more of an offensive role with Victor Oladipo out, but it never really happened. His scoring actually took a small dip post-All Star Break. We'll see what the Pacers decide to do with Turner and Domantas Sabonis this offseason as the two aren't great fits together, but are each good young players.
April 21, 2019, 4:10 pmDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis scored 14 points with eight boards in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the C's.
Sabonis ended his third season with a decent stat line and a nice 6-for-9 from the floor in 22 minutes. Ultimately, the Pacers were not able to make shots when they needed to in this series and lasted four games because of it. Sabonis is a popular trade candidate this summer as his fit with Myles Turner long term does not look good. He's got loads of offensive talent for his age and he should be just fine for fantasy wherever he ends up next season.
April 21, 2019, 4:01 pmBojan Bogdanovic - F - Indiana Pacers
Bojan Bogdanovic scored 22 points with eight rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer as the Pacers season ended with a loss to the Celtics on Sunday.
Bogdanovic did a fantastic job filling a massive void left by Victor Oladipo in the second half of the season and in the playoffs, but ultimately it wasn't enough. Indiana just could not hit shots when they needed to during this series, and thus, only lasted four games. Assuming Oladipo will miss at least the beginning of next season, Bogdanovic should be in for a big role to start 2019-20.
April 21, 2019, 3:58 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown scored 13 points with six boards, an assist and two 3-pointers in Sunday's 110-106 win against the Pacers.
Yet again the Celtics walked away with a win after the game being close until the end. Brown saw 27 minutes in this one and was efficient with his touches as he was 5-for-9 from the field with only one turnover. He was also one of seven Celtics in double-figures, something that needs to continue for them if they want to beat Milwaukee next round.
April 21, 2019, 3:53 pmKyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving scored 14 points on 4-for-13 shooting on Sunday as the Celtics finished off the Pacers in four games.
Irving also handed out seven assists in this one, but was not asked to do as much as prior games. The Celtics had balance in their scoring as they got seven players into double-figures. Irving vs. Eric Bledsoe should make for a great matchup in the next round, assuming the Bucks don't blow a 3-0 series lead.
April 21, 2019, 3:51 pmAl Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics
Al Horford put up a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double on Sunday as the Celtics finished off a sweep of the Pacers.
Horford also added five dimes and a 3-pointer in this one. He uncharacteristically took 19 shots in this one – only making four – but continued to be a vital piece for the Celtics. Assuming the Bucks don't blow a 3-0 lead, Horford against Brook Lopez should make for a great matchup in the Eastern Conference Semis.
