The guys spin around the league and grade almost every single dang free agency move there ever was in 2019.

Rajon Rondo, Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley, Danny Green, JaVale McGee, Dwight Howard, Anthony Davis and LeBron James are sitting out Friday's preseason finale vs. the Warriors.
The Lakers are placing the emphasis on preseason in this one after already playing the Warriors on Monday and Wednesday. The veterans will get some rest in what is bound to be an ugly game for the youngsters.

Avery Bradley scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting with four triples against the Warriors on Wednesday.
Bradley did nothing but score the ball tonight and if he isn't red-hot from deep, he isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues. Danny Green (eight points, two triples, two assists and a steal) isn't a sexy option, but provides more for fantasy owners and Quinn Cook (16 points, four triples, two rebounds and three assists) is going to have to prove he can produce when the Lakers play their full rotation.

Danny Green, Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo will rest on Monday vs. the Warriors, joining LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Lakers took care of Golden State in their first preseason meeting, and they actually play them again on Wednesday and Friday. The veterans will take some time off tonight.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started ahead of Danny Green in Thursday's preseason matchup, scoring 11 points with five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and three triples in 32 minutes.
KCP certainly made the most of his opportunity but we'd be shocked if he topped 30 minutes regularly during the regular season and even more surprised if he started over Green. He remains a late-round plodder in deep leagues for his output of threes and steals. Green scored four points in 20 minutes but remains a decent end-of-draft selection in 12-team formats.

The Lakers have officially announced the signing of Danny Green.
Green gets paid big time after securing a two-year, $30 million payday with the Lakers. He's a far cry from the Kawhi Leonard they were hoping to land, but Green brings experience and a lot of defensive intangibles to the table. He should provide sneaky mid-to-late round value as the likely starting SG of the Lakers.

Danny Green will sign a two-year, $30 million deal with the Lakers according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Now that the Kawhi Leonard decision has been made this is one of the first other shoes to drop. Green probably steps into a solid role here and maintains his typical late-round fantasy value as a 3-point specialist. This is a ton of money for Green, which probably indicates the Lakers didn't think they could do anything else with it, which is debatable but one can understand their angle as LeBron and AD want to make sure they get as much help as possible.

According to Mike Fisher of 247 Sports, the Mavs are hoping to close deals on both Danny Green and Marcus Morris.
Danny Green ended the regular season averaging 10.3 points and 4.0 rebounds for the Raptors and he reportedly is waiting for Kawhi Leonard’s decision before he makes his own. Morris meanwhile is a hot commodity this offseason after averaging 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds for the Celtics last year. One of the biggest needs the Mavs had heading into this offseason was three-point shooting. Last season, they shot the fourth-most threes in the entire league as a team, yet they were fourth from the bottom when it came to team three-point percentage. Dallas has already agreed to terms with Seth Curry on a 4-year, $32 million deal.

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan, Danny Green’s podcast co-host Harrison Sanford said that Green is, “considering not waiting” for Kawhi Leonard’s decision before making his own.
That’s quite the departure from his previous thinking. It’s been less than 48 hours since free agency “began,” but we’ve seen most teams use their cap space already. It’s possible a potential Green suitor will go elsewhere should he keep waiting. Things continue to get interesting as we await Leonard’s landing spot.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Danny Green said he heard from the Raptors, Lakers, Clippers and Mavs on the first day of free agency.
Green's been great about providing updates on his free agency. The Mavs were reported to be a serious contender if Kawhi Leonard decides not to return to the Raptors, though the general vibe is that Green will run it back in Toronto if Kawhi does as well. He's one of the biggest fish left and will have his pick of offers once the floodgates open again.

Danny Green is a "prime target" for the Mavs, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
Green will be waiting for Kawhi Leonard's decision, as he's indicated that his top option would be to run it back with the Raptors should Kawhi stay north. Green will have no shortage of suitors given his skill set, but as of now it looks like the Mavs are in the driver's seat should he leave Toronto. It'd be a really great fit if that's what ends up happening.

The Raptors, Lakers, Rockets, Sixers, Knicks, Mavs and Bulls are expected to reach out to Danny Green in free agency, per Harrison D. Sanford.
Sanford co-hosts the Inside the Green Room podcast with Danny Green himself, so he's got a pretty good connection here. The Raptors' interest will likely be determined by Kawhi Leonard's decision, and although Green figures to wind up on a contending team it's worth noting that teams like the Knicks could offer him a more featured role. Green's 3-and-D skill set should earn him a nice deal this summer.

While the Lakers have opened up enough cap space to sign a max free agent this summer, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the team will pursue players like Terrence Ross, Danny Green and Seth Curry if they decide to spend that money on balancing the roster.
In other words, it looks like the Lakers have learned from last year's obvious mistakes and will try to surround their stars with capable shooters. Any of the three players mentioned would be solid fits. A move to a team with two high-usage stars would likely affect Ross's fantasy value the most since he's the pure scorer on the list, but we're a long way from making serious fantasy predictions just yet.

Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.
Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

Kawhi Leonard joined Paul George on the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Lakers responded by signing three point guards, two shooting guards and two centers. All of this took 18 hours.
