    What do fantasy owners need during the season?

    Access.

    Access to experts and access to information.

    Owners also need better access.  The kind of access that helps cut through some noise.

    Brought to you by FSWA Fantasy Basketball Writer of the year Aaron Bruski, this guide serves as both a time-saver in the race to consume fantasy content, but also as an all-encompassing service that gives you everything you need to win your league.

    How do we do that?

    INTERACTION

    One-way conversations through articles, print and even chat can be valuable and they’re not going away.  In fact, they’re a big part of what the Hoop Ball Premium Membership is going to be.

    But as technology evolves and brings us closer together, it makes no sense that fantasy sites aren’t bringing the conversation into your living room.

    Hoop Ball is going to change that with nightly, interactive video chats before and after the games on most nights.  Our experts are going to take your questions and answer as many of them as we can on air.

    Your league can turn on a dime.  Or a turned ankle.  And there are too many caveats to be explored within the constraints of a blurb, article or podcast (of which we will have plenty).

    There needs to be back and forth, a narrative needs to be explored, and the backdrop of league scoring settings, formats and strategies deserve an interactive medium.

    It’s immediate. It’s impactful. It’s better than everything else that’s out there.

    Your schedule demands you get the most out of your content and in the most convenient way possible.

    We’re going to cover season-long leagues, DFS and take a hard core look at waiver wire options and FAAB plays.

    And what about Monday lineup deadlines?  Our live lineups show on Mondays is going to take you right into tip-off so you can get the last second advice you need.

    While other sites do this as a side focus, we put our best and brightest on the premium channels because this is central to our business plan and we want you guys to come back.

    ARTICLES AND TOOLS

    As mentioned, the print side of this shouldn’t be ignored.  Aside from the fact that you don’t always have time to watch or listen to things — having analysis on paper is a great way to lock in the answers.

    One foundational piece of any in-season product is the Pickups of the Night write-up.  So yeah, that’s included, but we also added pregame analysis with our Pregame Layup Line piece.  Erik Ong’s Weekly Report zooms out a tiny bit to look at the somewhat larger slices of data that we tend to forget when focusing intently from night-to-night.

    We’re also putting some crude, but savvy tools for fantasy owners with our Interactive Schedule Grid, Smart Depth Charts, Weekly Start-Sit Tool, Rankings and Go-Forward Projections.

    We have invested significant energy into Dynasty Rankings and a top-100 list.

    I’m not going to lie and say we’ll be the prettiest in-season product on the market today.  But we’re going to be the most dangerous.

Fantasy News

  • Tyronn Lue
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting former Cavs championship-winning coach Tyronn Lue has agreed to join the Clippers as their top assistant coach to Doc Rivers.

    The Lakers and Clippers rivalry continues to heat up. Lue was very close to a deal with the Lakers in May to become their head coach, but the sides couldn’t reach an agreement. Lue now joins Kawhi Leonard as another person to spurn the Lakers this offseason.

  • PJ Tucker
    SF, Houston Rockets

    P.J. Tucker says he is optimistic about signing a contract extension soon.

    The 34-year-old 3-and-D wing hopes to extend his deal with the Rockets, but a potential extension wouldn't begin until his age-36 season. Houston has him under contract for two more seasons at this point, so they may not be motivated enough to get something done this offseason. However, a maximum Tucker extension would only have him in the $10 million per year range. Even as a 37-year-old, that could be a great deal if he can keep up his current production. Tucker remains a sneaky source of threes and steals late in fantasy drafts or off the wire.

  • Jaylen Adams
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks officially announced the signings of guards Jaylen Adams and Rayjon Tucker on Tuesday.

    Adams and Tucker have their work cut out for them in their bid to claim a roster with the big club, as the Bucks have a reasonably deep guard rotation. Adams and Tucker are more than likely competing to get playing time in the G-League this season and can be ignored in fantasy.

  • Jeff Ledbetter
    G, San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs have offered summer league guard Jeff Ledbetter an Exhibit 10 deal, but he is still mulling over his options which include playing in Europe.

    Ledbetter had a productive summer league and now finds himself with a chance to play for the Austin Spurs of the G-League. Ledbetter is sure to be staring at a bigger payday in Europe, so his choice will be an interesting one. We should have a decision soon.

  • Eric Mika
    C, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings announced on Tuesday that they signed summer league standout C Eric Mika to an exhibit 10 contract.

    The former BYU big man is now set up to play for the Stockton Kings of the G-League. The Kings have a deep big man rotation, and it's unlikely that we'll see much, if any, of Mika on the roster this season.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant (right knee) said that he is completely healed from the minor knee surgery earlier this summer, saying he is "100 percent right now."

    Morant will look to get back into the swing of things in the coming weeks as he prepares for his rookie season. Morant has the talent and the role on rebuilding team and is undoubtedly going to cost a pretty penny in fantasy drafts.

  • Derrick Alston
    Team, New York Knicks

    The Westchester Knicks have named Derrick Alston as the new head coach, replacing Mike Miller who was promoted to join David Fizdale’s staff.

    Alston, a former NBA player, has been an assistant for Westchester for four years. Before that, Alston was a player development coach with the Rockets. This will be Alston’s first head coaching gig as he continues to move up the ladder.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph is not expected to play for Team Canada in the FIBA World Cup.

    Team Canada has been taking a beating the last few weeks with NBA guys continuing to pull out. This news won't have any effects on Joseph's role heading into the season, but it does create another dent in Team Canada's chances of making noise in the World Cup.

  • Marcus Georges-Hunt
    SG, Free Agent

    Jay King of The Athletic is hearing that Marcus Georges-Hunt is in Boston working out with the Celtics for the next few days.

    Georges-Hunt last played in the NBA for the Wolves in the 2017-18 season. Last season Georges-Hunt was waived from the Celtics in mid-October and played nine games for the Red Claws. Georges-Hunt is a longshot to make the team and carries no fantasy relevance regardless of the outcome.

  • Dwight Howard
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Lakers are planning individual workouts to evaluate centers Joakim Noah, Dwight Howard and Mo Speights this week in Los Angeles.

    Marcin Gortat is also in the Lakers’ radar as the team is actively looking to sign another big after DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL last week. Speights spent the last season in China after 10 years in the NBA while Gortat remains overseas and it’s unclear whether he will be back to Los Angeles for a workout with the team.
