Fantasy News

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White put up 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting with six rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Cavs on Sunday.

    White, the 7th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, will likely be handed the keys to the Bulls’ offense from day one. However, he had seven turnovers in this one and will have to learn to take better care of the ball before he becomes an effective playmaker. He also missed all four of his attempts from beyond the arc. White will have a roller-coaster rookie year from the Summer League to the regular season.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have announced their signing of Thaddeus Young.

    Young is heading to Chicago on a three-year, $41 million deal. He'll have to carve out minutes in a frontcourt rotation that includes Wendell Carter Jr. and Lauri Markkanen, so we'd expect Thad to take a step back in fantasy leagues. His stat set should still sustain standard-league value in mid-twenties minutes, but he will not be the same undervalued middle-round guy anymore.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have officially acquired Tomas Satoransky from the Wizards.

    Satoransky will earn $30 million over three years as part of the sign-and-trade. He was an easy middle-round value in fantasy leagues last season after emerging as the starting point guard, but Chicago will present a much tougher situation. The team drafted Coby White and still has Kris Dunn, and even though Dunn is expected to be moved at some point it's hard to feel great about a repeat season from Satoransky until that happens. It's been speculated that he will be the starting point guard, which should give him enough playing time to sustain late-round value at least.

  • Daniel Gafford

    The Bulls have signed second-round pick Daniel Gafford to a four-year, $6.1 million deal.

    Two of those seasons are guaranteed but it's still quite the contract for the No. 38 overall pick. He did post a big line on Friday with 21 points, 10 boards and four blocks, and the team is obviously high on his long-term outlook. The Bulls have a crowded frontcourt at the moment but Gafford is someone that's worth monitoring in deep dynasty formats.

  • Walter Lemon Jr.
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have waived Walter Lemon Jr.

    Just like with Shaquille Harrison, the Bulls waived Lemon Jr. after signing Thaddeus Young. There was a time where Lemon Jr. held top-70 value last season but it's highly unlikely he gets anywhere near that number next year. His situation could change depending on what team signs him but as of right now he's not worth drafting.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls have waived Shaquille Harrison.

    They announced this in the wake of Thaddeus Young officially inking his contract. Harrison contributed big-time for the Bulls in the last couple of weeks of the season and he'll likely get scooped up by another team. However, if he lands on a team with more depth than the Bulls, his fantasy value and playing time would take a big hit.

  • Jakarr Sampson
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    JaKarr Sampson has signed with Shandong Heroes of the CBA.

    Sampson played well in four games for the Bulls late last season while on a 10-day contract, averaging 20.0 points and 8.0 rebounds. He played some games for Shandong last season and has already played for multiple NBA teams and/or their G-League affiliates. At 26 years old, it's likely we haven't heard the last of him.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaquille Harrison put on a defensive clinic in Friday's Summer League tilt vs. the Lakers as he swiped five steals and scored 14 points (5-of-11 shooting), grabbed six boards and dished two dimes.

    This was a solid game from Harrison, especially since he just recently recovered from a mild left ankle sprain. He's shown us nice flashes like this in the past and will be worth targeting in very deep leagues in 2019-20.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White went 6-for-18 from the field en route to his 17-point performance in a win vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    He added three boards, three dimes and two steals, but missed all seven shot attempts from deep and was not hot from the line with 5-of-7 shooting. White will have his ups and downs this season but is expected to be handed the reins and the starting PG job from the get-go.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Daniel Gafford impressed on Friday as he led the Bulls to a 96-76 thrashing of the Lakers with 21 points (9-of-10 shooting), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks.

    Gafford turned heads tonight for sure. That said, he's still too far down the Bulls' regular-season depth chart to be worth targetting. He's more of a deep-league stash in dynasty right now.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Per Michael Scotto of The Athletic, Justin Holiday is considering interest from several teams including the Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards, Hornets and Cavs.

    It is also being reported that the Grizzlies are willing to do a sign-and-trade with the 30-year-old wing. Holiday is seemingly in a holding pattern until Kawhi Leonard decides on his future, as three of the mentioned teams with interest aren't going to make a move until then. His market should heat up fairly soon.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. will undergo surgery for a core muscle injury on Tuesday, July 9, though he is expected to be ready for training camp.

    Carter missed 38 games in his rookie season after undergoing left thumb surgery, and it appears he's been bitten by the injury bug yet again. Thankfully this is expected to be relatively minor, but prospective fantasy owners will need to check back for updates to see if WCJ is indeed ready when camp opens. The talented big man put up top-120 value when he was on the court last season and is expected to be one of Chicago's featured players this season. The Bulls' additions of Thad Young and Luke Kornet make a little more sense now, just in case Carter isn't ready to go when the team believes.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting the Bulls have reached an agreement in principle for two years with free agent Luke Kornet.

    Kornet will be able to stretch the floor as a nifty backup center for the Bulls. He averaged 1.5 3-pointers made per game in just 17 minutes per game for the Knicks last season. Kornet is a career 36 percent 3-point shooter.

  • Ryan Arcidiacono
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls are re-signing restricted free agent Ryan Arcidiacono to a three-year, $9 million deal.

    As it stands now, Arcidiacono is the fourth PG on the depth chart after the team drafted Coby White and acquired Tomas Satoransky. With Kris Dunn seemingly on the trade block, Arcidiacono should jump up to the third-string PG. Either way, there isn’t much fantasy value to be found here.

  • Adam Mokoka
    G, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls are signing G Adam Mokoka to a two-way contract per Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic.

    The 6’5″ French guard went undrafted this year after withdrawing from the 2018 NBA Draft. He should get his feet wet in the NBA Summer League and will provide some depth to the Bulls’ guard rotation should he find himself on the roster. Mokoka can be ignored in fantasy circles for now.
