• Ricky Rubio finished Spain’s 109-59 victory over Lithuania with 11 points, four assists and three 3-pointers.

    Rubio had himself a very efficient game shooting 4-of-5 from the field and 3-of-4 from 3-point range. He should be a key contributor for the Wolves next season and should have mid-round value for the 2016-17 fantasy season.

  • PJ Washington - PF - Charlotte Hornets

    GM Mitch Kupchak stated that all of the Hornets rookies, including PJ Washington, would be spending time in the G-League this upcoming season.

    "So getting that extra G League seasoning is on the docket for this year’s second-rounders and, yes, even Washington." said Kupchak. He also went on to cite how much the G-League contributed to the development of Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon last season, even stating that Bacon would request to be sent down to the G-League because he got more playing time. It looks as though it'll be at least a season before the Hornets' young players start contributing to the team and fantasy owners.

  • John Collins - PF - Atlanta Hawks

    Coach Lloyd Pierce stated that he wants John Collins to remain a PF next season and declared that he won't be playing much C.

    Pierce went on to say that it's because he doesn't want his team to play too small. Not only that, but he wants Collins to develop into a better ball handler and floor general, stating that "You don’t need a traditional point guard to come down and get everyone organized,” Pierce said. “Anyone can bring it. I’m trying to get John Collins to get a defensive rebound and push the ball up the floor." Even with the addition of DeAndre Hunter and Cam Reddish in this last week's NBA Draft, Collins still seems as though he'll be a focal point of Atlanta's offense next season.

  • DeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks

    According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, the Nets are exploring the possibility of signing DeAndre Jordan, Kevin Durant's close friend, with the hopes that his addition will make Brooklyn a more enticing spot for Durant.

    Stein went on to state that the Knicks, who are also in the Durant race, are still interesting in re-signing Jordan. The Nets are the favorites to land Kyrie Irving right now and his addition will undoubtedly make them a more attractive option so if they could also manage to poach Jordan away from the Knicks, they'd have two of Durant's good friends on the same team. Although he'll likely miss the entirety of next season, Durant is still garnering quite a market and the Nets look to be getting more and more aggressive as July 1 nears.

  • Louis King - F - Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons will sign Louis King to a two-way contract.

    King averaged 13.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 triples at Oregon last season and will give Detroit some organizational depth at the forward spots. He’s going to be doing most of his work in the G-League and this news only makes waves in deep dynasty formats.

  • Furkan Korkmaz - SG - Philadelphia Sixers

    It appears as though Furkan Kprkmaz has agreed to a deal with Fenerbahce.

    Korkmaz never found his footing with the Sixers despite their need for a perimeter shooter. At just 21 years old it would be surprising if this was the last we saw of him in the NBA, but it does seem as though it'd be better for Korkmaz to go somewhere where he'll actually play during the formative years of his career.

  • Paul George - SF - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George is expected to miss most of the preseason as he recovers from surgery to repair his right rotator cuff and left labrum.

    George is coming off a fantastic season, and it's unlikely that this will scare any fantasy players off from taking PG in the first round. That said, if he's already expected to miss most of the preseason, that won't leave a lot of leeway if any setbacks arise. There's no need to worry about George for the time being but keep your eyes open for updates on his progress as the summer rolls on.

  • DeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks

    The Lakers have reportedly shown interest in DeAndre Jordan.

    Jordan is in a strange spot, entering his decline at a position that is increasingly looking for more versatile skillsets than he has to offer but still good enough to command a large-ish paycheck. It's unlikely that he gets a big deal from the Lakers, as it means they'll have failed to spend their money elsewhere, but he'd fit as a lob threat and rebounder. His fantasy stock should be fairly predictable as long as he doesn't end up in a timeshare situation.

  • Chris Paul - PG - Houston Rockets

    According to the Houston Chronicle, Chris Paul says he has not asked to be traded and downplays supposed rift with James Harden.

    This corroborates statements made by Rockets GM Daryl Morey earlier in the month denying rumors that there was a rift between Harden and Paul. While the Rockets are exploring options to improve their roster for the season, it appears that Paul is unlikely to be moved.

  • Kawhi Leonard - SF - Toronto Raptors

    Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Kawhi Leonard will decline his player option and test unrestricted free agency, though he is "seriously considering" re-signing with the Raptors.

    There's nothing more that the Raptors could've possibly done in their first and potentially only year with Leonard, making a concerted effort to keep him healthy and fresh while amassing solid depth around him on a run to a championship. Leonard will have plenty of teams pitching him when free agency opens, with the Nets, Lakers and Knicks in the mix and the Clippers thought to be the biggest threat. The Raptors can pay Leonard more than any other team, but if the superstar wants to play close to home then there's not much they can do about it. Still, his one year in Toronto makes a pretty compelling case that sticking around would be the best move for his career.

  • Yovel Zoosman - F - International

    Yovel Zoosman, who was not selected in Thursday’s draft, is focused on landing with an NBA team despite a four-year offer on the table from Maccabi Tel Aviv.

    Zoosman was widely expected to be chosen in the draft, and it’s not at all surprising that he feels he can make the jump. He may need to spend time in the G-League but the 21-year-old should be able to attract someone into giving him a shot. Our international hoops expert, Dio Nikiforos, calls Zoosman a more athletic version of Omri Casspi with a 7-foot wingspan and the ability to guard multiple positions.
