• Montrezl Harrell - F/C - Los Angeles Clippers

    Montrezl Harrell had 16 points (7-of-13 shooting), 10 rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's win over the Hornets.

    This is becoming routine for Harrell, who made this line even better by going 2-for-2 at the charity stripe. He's delivering a career season and could conceivably finish as a top-50 player this year.

  • David Griffin - Team - New Orleans Pelicans

    Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that multiple teams are already indicating significant interest in acquiring the No. 4 pick in next week's draft, which now belongs to the Pelicans.

    In case you missed it, the Pelicans have agreed to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers for a package that includes the fourth selection in the 2019 draft, which the Pelicans may flip to get a quality roster player or another young asset. David Griffin stood firm in his requests on a Davis deal, and although he was unable to get Kyle Kuzma included in the trade, the Pelicans came away with Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, two future first-rounders and the No. 4 pick in next week's draft, which could lead to more picks or additional players. Expect New Orleans to be at the center of plenty of rumors over the next few days.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Despite being traded to one of his only preferred long-term destinations, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Anthony Davis will still enter free agency next summer.

    Davis could sign an extension this summer but he will play out the string and try to maximize his earnings. The Lakers have a year to sell Davis on remaining in Los Angeles, and one imagines that playing with LeBron James and whichever other stars that duo can lure to Staples Center is a pretty good pitch in and of itself. Davis has earned the right to test the market as one of the top players in the game but it would go down as a mild surprise if he didn't end up happy in the one place he's been clamoring for since the start of the saga. Not that unexpected things haven't happened in the NBA before, of course.

  • Josh Hart - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Josh Hart will be traded to the Pelicans, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Hart gives the Pelicans a third young asset to go along with three first-round picks, joining Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram in the deal. He battled knee injuries throughout last season but proved to be one of the more versatile and effective players on a laughable Lakers roster. A jack of all trades and master of none, expect Hart to fill multiple roles off the bench for a Pelicans team that hasn't gotten consistent wing production in the recent past. It's a tough spot for fantasy value, however, as he's now blocked in the backcourt by Ball and Jrue Holiday.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Following Saturday's blockbuster acquisition of Anthony Davis, Marc Stein is reporting that the Lakers will make Kemba Walker one of their top targets in free agency.

    It makes sense, as point guard is a major position of weakness on the roster with Lonzo Ball headed to New Orleans. Walker and Kyrie Irving are the top of the PG class, and though Charlotte can offer Kemba a boatload of money on a supermax deal, it's impossible to argue that they give him the same shot at winning that the Lakers do now.

  • Brandon Ingram - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Brandon Ingram is included in Saturday's Anthony Davis trade.

    Ingram will step right into a prominent role for the Pelicans, who have struggled to find production out of the small forward slot in recent years. His fantasy game still has plenty of holes but he should make a decent late-round flier if you're hunting for someone who can bring some points, rebounds and the occasional defensive stat. Be wary of his percentages, but a young, rebuilding squad with an eye on the long-term future is a nice spot for Ingram to land. Keep in mind that Ingram's season was cut short by deep vein thrombosis in his right arm, though he is expected to be ready for next season.

  • Lonzo Ball - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Lonzo Ball will be headed to the Pelicans as part of the Anthony Davis trade.

    Ball will be joined by Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks. There were reports last season that the Ball camp doesn't feel New Orleans is the best basketball fit for his career, though a pairing of Ball and Jrue Holiday would provide elite defense. With Ball presumably headed to a roster that will actually build around him rather than make him a role player, it's possible that he turns in a big bounce-back fantasy season. His health looms over everything, but a healthy Ball in a featured role could still deliver on all his pre-draft hype.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    The Pelicans have agreed to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 selection in next week's draft, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    This is the big domino to fall in what's expected to be a crazy offseason, and Davis heading to the Lakers will have a ripple effect that changes things drastically for numerous other teams. A Davis-LeBron James duo is about as good as it gets, and the Lakers have to be considered title contenders as they shift their attention to filling out the rest of the roster. They've now become one of the most attractive destinations for free agents and have to feel good about retaining Davis long-term, all while retaining Kyle Kuzma. New Orleans can start fresh around presumed top pick Zion Williamson and Jrue Holiday, and it's possible that they dangle the No. 4 pick in the draft to help acquire a player that can provide immediate help to the roster. Getting three young players and three first-rounders is nice business for a team dealing a player who was hammering away at their leverage.

  • Frank Kaminsky - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets have not yet made their decision on Frank Kaminsky's qualifying offer for next season.

    If they extend an offer, worth $4.5 million, Kaminsky will be a restricted free agent. Despite his strong finish to the year, it would be a surprise if he returned to Charlotte. Kaminsky was out of the rotation entirely for the bulk of the season and even requested a trade at one point before injuries allowed him to get back into the mix. The Hornets might not want to spend $4.5 million on a player that's so low on the depth chart, especially with Kemba Walker's potential supermax contract putting them into the luxury tax.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets have been trying to move up from the 12th pick in next week's NBA Draft.

    Charlotte wants to get a player that can immediately improve the roster as part of the sales pitch for Kemba Walker. Walker has said that he's willing to take less than the supermax if it helps the Hornets build around him, but it would be an awful lot of money to pass up. Either way, Charlotte should look to get production out of their rookie contracts because the team's cap sheet is fairly ugly. If the Hornets can't move up, look for them to make their pick at 12 and try to upgrade the roster via other avenues this summer.

  • Salah Mejri - C - Dallas Mavericks

    Salah Mejri is shooting 500 three-pointers per day in order to expand his game.

    The 33-year old Mejri said Rick Carlisle made the suggestion late last season as a way of adding more years to his career. Mejri played only 11.1 minutes across 36 games for the Mavs this season but did start shooting a few threes as he made 11-of-34 for 32.4 percent. He made only one total in the previous three seasons. The 7'2", 236 pound center is an unrestricted free agent but expressed his desire to stay with the Mavs. He is planning to play for Tunisia in the 2019 FIBA World Cup that starts on August 31.
