• Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kings’ beat writer Jason Jones reported that the Sacramaneto Kings plan to sign Chicago restricted free agent guard Zach LaVine a four-year, $78 million offer sheet on Friday.

    The report also mentions that LaVine had reached out to the Kings and visited with the front office Thursday. LaVine, who tore his left ACL in February 2017, also met with team doctors who said his knee is in good shape. It seems LaVine took the initiative to get a deal after the notoriously tight-fisted Bulls slow-played his deal hoping for the market to set a (lower) salary they would be more willing to match. The Bulls have 48 hours to match, but it remains to be seen if they do, and considering #SeeREDDISH is already blowing up on Bulls’ Twitter, Gar-Pax might be fine with tanking another season to get Duke’s Cam Reddish. The Kings’ offer now has tied up just about all their available cap space and if the Bulls decline to match, the Kings’ roster looks pretty much set for 2018-19 barring any trades.

Fantasy News

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris only scored 8 points on 2-of-9 shooting with six boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in Saturday's win over the Spurs.

    The inefficient night can be forgiven in tonight's matchup but the Nuggets need Harris to show up whenever Jamal Murray is struggling to find his groove. It's been hard for him to find consistency in his game this year because of the myriad of injuries that he succumbed to this whole season.

  • Jamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray played 31 minutes in Saturday's Game 4 win, scoring 24 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

    Murray decided to show up in Game 4 to help the Nuggets tie the series at 2-2 before heading back to Denver. The inconsistency is to be expected since he's still young but tonight, he was able to find his shot over Derrick White, who has been playing out of his mind in this series as well. The Blue Arrow needs to show up every night in order for the Nuggets to knock off the Spurs in their first round matchup.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig started in Saturday's win over the Spurs and tallied 18 points with eight rebounds, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

    Craig made sure that Coach Mike Malone didn't make a mistake in putting him in the starting lineup by rewarding him with an efficient and all-around stat line in tonight's game. He was also 6-of-9 in the 37 minutes that he played in and was a key contributor in tonight's win over the Spurs.

  • Paul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap only scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting with four boards, one steal and one block in Saturday's win over the Spurs.

    Millsap struggled in tonight's game but was still a positive difference for the Nuggets who needed to win tonight's game or risk being down 3-1 in this series. Handling LaMarcus Aldrige all night is a tough task for anyone so kudos to Millsap for staying on his hip the whole time he was on the court.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan was ejected in the fourth quarter after arguing for a charge called on him.

    DeRozan wasn't able to keep his cool in this one and got ejected after the referee didn't appreciate his gesture of throwing the ball in discontent. DeRozan finished the night with 19 points, five rebounds, five assists in 34 minutes of action before leaving the court.

  • Blake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) will play in Game 3 on Saturday.

    Griffin missed the first two games of the series and the Pistons got worked in both games. It's not too surprising that Griffin is active for the team's first home playoff game since 2015-16.

  • Rodions Kurucs - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rodions Kurucs did not play in Saturday's Game 4 loss to the Sixers.

    The second round rookie started the first three games of the series but was a DNP-CD in this one. We'll see if he can get into Game 5 – or any games after if needed – but there's a chance his season is over. If it's over, it was an impressive first season for the second rounder and the Nets may have a real rotation piece going forward.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll played 21 minutes after being removed from the starting lineup in Saturday's loss.

    Carroll scored two points and missed all six of his shots. He did grab seven boards, including three on the offensive end. With Caris LeVert and Jared Dudley both contributing, Carroll will likely remain on the bench as a small-ball option.

  • JJ Redick - G - Philadelphia Sixers

    J.J. Redick scored nine points on 3-for-11 shooting in Saturday's Game 4 win.

    Redick came back down from a big Game 3 performance. He did hit a clutch three towards the end of the game to give the Sixers a one-point lead and while it wasn't the difference maker, it was incredibly clutch. He'll need to play well consistently in round two – assuming they get there – if the Sixers want a chance at the Conference Finals.

  • Ben Simmons - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons scored 15 points with eight boards and eight assists in Saturday's 112-108 win against the Nets.

    Simmons took more of a back seat with Joel Embiid back, as expected. The Sixers ended up eking out the win in this one and the Jared Dudley/Simmon feud got some more fuel under it. The Sixers are up 3-1, but this series has been incredibly entertaining from the start.
