Free Agent

Fantasy News

  • JR Smith
    SG, Free Agent

    Shams Charania is reporting that the Lakers will continue to monitor the open market for another shooter.

    J.R. Smith was named specifically, which isn't a surprise considering he recently worked out for the Lakers — his second reported workout with LA. If the team wants to add another player they'll need to cut someone, but that's a bridge that can be crossed when they get there.

  • Luc Mbah a Moute
    SF, Free Agent

    According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, the Rockets worked out Luc Mbah a Moute on Thursday.

    Mbah a Moute missed a whopping 78 games due to left knee issues last season and hasn't been heard from since. The Rockets continue to search for extra depth with their all-small roster, and Mbah a Moute would be a familiar face having played 61 games for Houston in the 2017-18 season. Even if he does end up on a roster, with the Rockets or someone else, Mbah a Moute will have no fantasy relevance.

    The Grizzlies have waived Jordan Bell.

    Bell was traded from the Rockets last month, but this news should not have much fantasy impact.

  • JR Smith
    SG, Free Agent

    J.R. Smith will work out for the Lakers early this week, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    After waiving Troy Daniels, the Lakers are looking to fill the open roster spot as they will be working out J.R. Smith and Dion Waiters early this week. Nearly 16 months removed from his last NBA action Smith will provide little to no fantasy value.

  • Dion Waiters
    SG, Free Agent

    Dion Waiters will have a meeting with the Lakers on March 2nd, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    After missing out on Reggie Jackson and failing to convince Darren Collison to come out of retirement, Los Angeles is still interested in bringing in another playmaker guard. As long as any player is a free agent as of March 1st, they are playoff eligible with their next team if they sign before the final day of the regular season. Waiters was waived by the Grizzlies after the trade deadline and he has been working out in the Los Angeles area.

  • Dion Waiters
    Team, Free Agent

    The Lakers continue to evaluate the possibility of signing free agent shooting guard Dion Waiters, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

    “I don't know if Dion Waiters is an answer," Windhorst said on The Hoop Collective podcast. "They're going to give Dion a look. They had a meeting with him last week. I expect they will have a workout with him in the short-term and see what kind of condition he's in.” Waiters was waived by the Grizzlies in early February, just a few days after he was acquired in a trade with the Heat. The Lakers are believed to looking for a veteran backcourt player as they gear up for what they expect to be a deep playoff run. They are also said to have an interest in veteran shooting guard J.R. Smith, but none of these guys is expected to have any fantasy impact if signed.

    The Cavs have allowed center Marques Bolden's 10-day contract to expire and he has returned to the Canton Charge of the G League.

He can still sign a second 10-day with the Cavs before the end of the season in mid-April but he is now obsolete with Andre Drummond in Cleveland.

    The Lakers and the Clippers are both said to have interest in guard Tyler Johnson, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

  • Ryan Broekhoff
    SF, Free Agent

    According to Mark Stein, to make room for the signing of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the Mavs are waiving Ryan Broekhoff.

    Broekhoff has not been on the fantasy radar, even in the deepest of leagues, making his release a non-impact move by the Mavs.

  • Darren Collison
    PG, Free Agent

    The Magic have waived Amile Jefferson on Thursday in order to create a roster spot after the trade deadline.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Free Agent

    According to David Aldridge of the Athletic, the Clippers plan to waive Isaiah Thomas after acquiring him at the trade deadline on Thursday.

    Thomas was not been able to provide standard league fantasy value in a great situation with the Wizards. He can be safely dropped across formats. It is possible that he re-emerges if he is able to find a team that is desperate for a starting point guard.

    PG, Free Agent

    The Pistons have waived Tim Frazier on Thursday after the trade deadline.
