• George Hill
    G, Cleveland Cavaliers

    George Hill and Kyle Korver are "logical candidates" to be bought out if they aren't traded, per Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.

    The Cavs are going to be stripping down their roster and clearing their cap commitments for the future. Hill is owed $19 million this season and had been asked about a buyout in the event that LeBron James left when he was first acquired from Sacramento. He wasn't interested at that point and isn't currently, but things might change as we get closer to the regular season. Korver is also likely to be moved, as he's a great complementary piece for a contender. He's far more likely to move on the trade market than Hill, but neither player should be expected to finish this season with Cleveland. Even starting the season with Cleveland may be a longshot. Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman are two guys who should benefit if Hill and Korver are removed from the roster.

Fantasy News

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson scored 13 points (3-for-6 shooting), six rebounds, three 3-pointers and two steals across 25 minutes in Friday's win over the Lakers.

    Robinson will have a steady role as the starting small forward this season, but don't consider him more than anything as a weekly streamer for when the Warriors have a heavy week.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry continued his torrid pace in the preseason with 32 points (9-for-20 shooting), six 3-pointers, six assists, one rebound and one block in Friday's 124-103 win over the Lakers.

    This preseason, Curry averaged more points than minutes played – a statistic that bodes quite well for those that took him in the top-5 of fantasy drafts. Curry is primed for more usage than he's had in years and as long as he's healthy, he can produce like the top overall fantasy player this season.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell scored 29 points (9-for-19 shooting) including six 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in Friday's win over the Lakers.

    Russell let it fly on Friday and this is exactly the type of performance we hope to see regularly during the regular season. Contributing in points, assists, threes and free-throw percentage – consider Russell in the top-50 of fantasy drafts.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green logged 31 minutes in Friday's win over the Lakers, adding nine points, 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and one three.

    Green can always be counted on for solid production in rebounds, assists and defense. His ceiling is determined by his ability to score efficiently and with Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson injured, expect Green to get more opportunities than last season.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played 33 minutes in a starting role in Friday's 103-124 loss to the Warriors, accumulating 25 points on 8-for-16 shooting, five 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and a block.

    Caldwell-Pope being featured so heavily on a night where the Lakers rested most of their regulars indicates he is not very high on the pecking order when it comes to the Lakers rotation. Consider him a threes and steals streamer on weeks where the Lakers have a heavy schedule.

  • Zach Norvell
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Zach Norvell came off the bench in Friday's loss to the Warriors and put up 29 points (8-for-17 shooting), five 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and one block in a team-high 39 minutes.

    It was another signature performance in the preseason for the undrafted rookie free agent. Norvell is proving himself worthy of keeping around for the Lakers, but don't expect him to factor into fantasy this season.

  • Devontae Cacok
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Devonta Cacok notched a double-double in a losing effort against the Warriors on Friday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one block.

    Cacok got a rare start in this one along with Troy Daniels (five points, two rebounds, two steals and a three) and Jared Dudley (four points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three). Don't expect any of these guys to have any value in standard leagues beyond the occasional stream.

  • Chris Silva
    C, Miami Heat

    Ira Winderman reported on Twitter Friday night that Chris Silva will receive one of the two available two-way contract from the Heat.

    An undrafted free agent and a former SEC co-defensive player of the year is off to a good start to his NBA career. With the Heat's track record of player development, keep him on your deep league watch lists.

  • Damyean Dotson
    SG, New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson made his return to action on Friday from offseason shoulder surgery and logged 10 minutes, contributing three points, one assist, one 3-pointer and one steal.

    Dotson has a lot more competition for minutes in 2019-20 compared to his bright performance as a pick-up streamer in 2018-19. He's also under the thumb of the evil coach David Fizdale roster-shuffling chaos machine. so it's best to leave him undrafted in most leagues, applying a wait-and-see approach for now.

  • Alex Caruso
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Trudell reported on Twitter that Alex Caruso suffered a bone contusionon on his pelvis during Friday's game and will not return.

    According to Trudell, the X-rays were negative but Caruso will undergo further testing when the team returns to Los Angeles.
