July 3, 2019, 4:32 pmDe'Anthony MeltonPG, Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies are set to acquire De'Anthony Melton from the Suns along with Josh Jackson and two second-rounders in exchange for Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter.
It was surprising when Melton wasn't on the Suns' Summer League roster earlier today, but perhaps this is why. It's a worthwhile gamble for Memphis, who adds two young players with upside for a veteran they weren't going to play and a sophomore with lower upside than Melton. Melton started 31 games (50 apperances) for the Suns last season and flashed his defensive prowess with 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks in 19.7 mpg, but he has a long way to go on the offensive end. He remains an intriguing dynasty asset and could make a bigger splash if Memphis doesn't retain Delon Wright.

Kyle Kuzma dropped 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.
Kuzma is back into the swing of things and should cruise to late-round value. He added five rebounds, three triples and one block to the stat sheet.
November 18, 2019, 12:13 amLeBron JamesSF, Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James double-doubled in a 122-101 win against the Hawks on Sunday as he put up 33 points and 12 assists.
James shot 13-of-21 from the field and 6-of-10 from beyond the arc. He also grabbed seven boards and added one steal and one block to the box score. James' co-star Anthony Davis had an off night with 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with five assists and five blocks. Both guys are locks for top-15 value.
November 18, 2019, 12:10 amRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo played well on Sunday as he put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a blowout win over the Hawks.
Rondo played 24 minutes, which is a season-high. He knocked down two 3-pointers and added three assists to the stat sheet. Alex Caruso played 21 minutes and had 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Rondo will likely be the preferred option of the two when his minutes restriction is lifted, but neither guy is worth owning in standard formats.
November 18, 2019, 12:06 amKentavious Caldwell-PopeSG, Los Angeles Lakers
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started for Avery Bradley (leg) and put up 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.
KCP played just 21 minutes as the majority of this game was out of reach. Danny Green chipped in 11 points with seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 4-of-7 shooting. Green provides late-round value and is worth owning in most formats, while KCP is a streaming option while Bradley is out.
November 18, 2019, 12:02 amTrae YoungPG, Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young scored 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting in 39 minutes of action in a 122-101 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Young turned the ball over eight times and shot just 2-of-8 from beyond the arc. He dished out seven assists and grabbed two steals as well. Young is going to produce top-20/30 value this season in 8/9-cat formats.
November 17, 2019, 11:59 pmJabari ParkerPF, Atlanta Hawks
Jabari Parker put up 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting with four steals in a blowout loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Parker has played well as of late, but this was not his best performance. He added eight rebounds, one assist and one block to the box score. Cam Reddish chipped in 11 points with three steals on 5-of-13 shooting. Reddish is still figuring out how his game translates to the NBA and can be left on the waiver wire. However, Parker should be owned in all formats.
November 17, 2019, 11:56 pmChandler ParsonsSF, Atlanta Hawks
Chandler Parsons played two minutes against the Lakers on Sunday and did not record a stat.
Parsons managed to have a plus/minus of minus-10 in just two minutes of action. He will not have much of a role with the Hawks this season regardless of injuries.
November 17, 2019, 10:05 pmEric PaschallPF, Golden State Warriors
Eric Paschall took control of the Warriors' offense on Sunday vs. the Pelicans, contributing 30 points (10-of-17 FG, 8-of-10 FT), seven rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Paschall was cooking in this one, and he has now scored 15 or more points in six out of his last eight games. D'Angelo Russell will be out for a couple weeks at minimum, and Paschall faces few challenges for touches from the remaining healthy bodies. He is not going to deliver many hustle stats or assists, but he has an excellent runway to pile up efficient points and steady rebounding figures to create mid-round value.
November 17, 2019, 9:58 pmDraymond GreenPF, Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green struggled from the field (2-of-10 FG) on Sunday, but was able to deliver six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
This is a realistic expectation for what Draymond can deliver alongside the kids left on the Warriors. He is not going to deliver the early-round production many were projecting for this season, but he will still create plenty of hustle stats while going for mid-round value.
November 17, 2019, 9:51 pmE'Twaun MooreSG, New Orleans Pelicans
E'Twaun Moore put up 10 points and seven rebounds in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Moore put up 14,15 and 18 points in his previous three contests, so he cooled off in this one. However, he was limited to just 24 minutes as he had five fouls. Kenrich Williams also had a lackluster performance as he put up five points, 10 rebounds and four assists on 2-of-8 shooting. Williams has provided late-round value over the last two weeks and is a solid streaming option when the Pelicans are missing some key players due to injury. Moore is a deep-league scoring and shooting option, but his value disappears when Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Frank Jackson return to the court.
