    Deyonta Davis has been waived by the Rockets, according to Alykhan Bijani and Kelly Iko.

    Davis was claimed off waivers in June and may have only been some emergency insurance in case of a Clint Capela trade. He has floundered since getting picked 31st overall in 2016 and may not land on an NBA roster to start the season.

    The Rockets have claimed Deyonta Davis off of waivers on Wednesday.

    There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the Rockets as they have been unable to make the NBA Finals in the crowded Western Conference. Everyone other than James Harden has been made available in trade talks. Their GM Daryl Morey is known for being able to find guys off of the scrap heap that can help contribute to a winning team. The one player that this news could affect is Clint Capela who had a solid campaign but is set to make about $74M over the next four seasons. It also could just be the signing of a back-up center with no implications on Capela's future. What is certain is that there will be more moves to be made by Morey and the Rockets before the start of next season.

    The Hawks have waived Deyonta Davis.

    Davis hasn't done much in the NBA after being picked 31st overall by the Grizzlies back in 2016 and signing a fully-guaranteed deal for three years and $4 million. Last summer he was dealt to Sacramento, waived, signed with the Warriors and ended up with the Hawks on a 10-day contract after he was waived by Golden State. With the Hawks owning six picks in the upcoming draft, it's unlikely that Davis would've made it onto the final roster. His NBA career may be on its last legs.

    Deyonta Davis only played three minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, finishing the year with a contract for next season in Atlanta.

    Davis joined the Hawks during the last nine games of the year, and played well enough to earn a multi-year contract that will have him on the team’s summer league squad heading into next year. He fell outside top-250 value in 9-cat and 8-cat in those 8 games, and there’s not much reason to think that he’ll be in line for anything more than a backup role next year.

    Deyonta Davis (right knee soreness) is questionable for Wednesday’s game vs. the Pacers.

    Isaac Humphries would be in line for additional minutes off the bench if Davis can’t go. Davis is off the fantasy radar as the Hawks have a fairly healthy roster for tomorrow’s game.

    Deyonta Davis has agreed to sign a multi-year deal with the Hawks.

    Davis' 10-day contract was about to expire and the Hawks clearly want to keep him around for a little longer. Atlanta actually is pretty stacked with big men, also rostering John Collins, Alex Len and Dewayne Dedmon. In the eight games that Davis played for the Hawks, he averaged 4.3 points and 4.3 rebounds on 68.2 percent shooting in 14.4 minutes.

    Deyonta Davis (right ankle sprain) will play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Davis will be backing up Alex Len and is a decent punt play with top-150 value over his last four games.

    Deyonta Davis (right ankle sprain) is probable to face the Magic on Friday.

    Davis has provided deep league big man stats seeing roughly 20 minutes a night over the past week while averaging 6.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. With all the injuries the Hawks have been dealing with and the potential to rest/shut down the players in front of him, it's not out of the question that Davis could have a big game or two to close out the season if an expanded opportunity presents itself.

    Deyonta Davis (left thumb sprain) is probable to face the Sixers on Wednesday.

    Davis has been a sneaky source of blocks in deep leagues since latching on with Atlanta and that should last through the end of the year. He'll lose some opportunity with John Collins set to return tonight, though Alex Len is questionable to play. If he sits, Davis will still have minutes available and can be fired up as a streamer or bottom-barrel DFS option. Isaac Humphries sits behind him on the depth chart.

    The Hawks have signed Deyonta Davis to a second 10-day contract.

    Davis has only appeared in two games with the Hawks and has played a combined seven minutes in both. There is no reason to add Davis in any leagues.

    Deyonta Davis played six minutes on Tuesday night, scoring two points with a rebound against the Pelicans.

    It was Davis' second appearance of the season. His first was a one-minute cameo against the Rockets. There's no fantasy impact here.

    Deyonta Davis signed a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Davis will provide depth off the bench for the Hawks with Miles Plumlee’s recovery still unclear. Davis has little fantasy appeal as long as John Collins, Alex Len and Dewayne Dedmon are healthy in front of him.

    The Hawks are signing center Deyonta Davis of G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors to a 10-day contract.

    With Tyler Zeller’s deal expiring, the Hawks were looking for some extra frontcourt help due to injuries to Omari Spellman, Alex Poythress and Miles Plumlee. Davis is averaging 9.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in 43 contests with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League and he is just 22 years old.

    G, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have waived Tyler Ulis, Kendrick Nunn, Danuel House Jr. and Deyonta Davis.

    All of these guys were likely to be cut with the Warriors depth (though they did sign Alfonzo McKinnie so go figure). Ulis will have the easiest time trying to sign elsewhere but there’s a good chance all of these players will spends some time in the G-League or overseas this season.

    The Warriors have signed free agent Deyonta Davis.

    Davis, a former 31st overall pick, was waived by the Kings after he was acquired in a trade with the Grizzlies earlier this offseason. The Dubs are a little unsettled at center but Davis will be on the outside looking in when it comes to minutes with the big club. Recently-signed Will Cherry was waived in a corresponding move.
