    Jordan Crawford has agreed to a deal with Russia's Lokomotiv Kuban.

    Crawford last played in the NBA for the Pelicans in 2018 with career averages of 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 24.4 minutes. The career journeyman has played for five NBA teams since 2010 with a few stints with China in between. Since the beginning of 2019, he has played in Israel, China, Germany and now we can add Russia to that list.

  • Lance Stephenson
    SG, Free Agent

    Lance Stephenson is ineligible to sign with the Pacers according to Scott Agness.

    Stephenson to the Pacers was being discussed in early March and made sense now with Victor Oladipo choosing to sit out the remainder of the season but this move apparently will not happen. The 29-year old Stephenson spent this past season in China where he averaged 26.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the CBA's Flying Leopards.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, Free Agent

    The Knicks waived Kadeem Allen on Thursday in order to sign Jared Harper to a two-way contract.

    Allen has played in 47 games throughout his first three seasons in the league after getting drafted in the late second round in 2017. He has career averages of 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.2 blocks, 0.5 three-pointers, 0.9 turnovers on .435 shooting from the field and .757 from the charity stripe in 13.6 mpg.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson has agreed to a deal with the Nets, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Johnson was waived by the Suns in February and has seen his stock take quite a tumble after inking a big deal with the Heat a few summers ago. Injuries took him off the court and Miami's depth left him on the outside looking in before he was traded to Phoenix last year. Johnson has shown to be a capable player before and will give the Nets some nice backcourt depth with Kyrie Irving out, though expectations should be tempered given his lackluster work over the last two seasons.

  • JR Smith
    SG, Free Agent

    After news broke of Avery Bradley's decision to opt out of the remainder of the NBA season on Tuesday night, the Lakers have once again emerged atop the J.R. Smith "sweepstakes" as they are now in the market for a replacement for Bradley.

    The team will definitely need a replacement for Bradley, even if its only for depth purposes. They don't have much depth at any position, but the guard spots are especially delicate. The Bradley decision is a big one and seeing Smith join forces with LeBron James one last time is a mouthwatering possibility.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Free Agent

    The Rockets have interest in free agent guard Tyler Johnson, who last played for the Suns before being waived in early February.

    The Rockets have been interested in Johnson before (in 2016) and he could find his way on to a roster sooner rather than later. NBA teams will undoubtedly have plenty of roster flexibility next month when the league returns to action, and depth could play a big part for teams that have positive tests for coronavirus. As currently constructed, the Rockets have no room for Johnson in terms of floor time.

  • 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.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Free Agent

    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.

  • Ryan Broekhoff
    SF, Free Agent

    Both Ryan Broekhoff and Dragan Bender clear waivers and are now unrestricted free agents.

    They are both able to sign with any NBA team after clearing waivers. They are not on the fantasy radar.

  • Shamorie Ponds
    PG, Free Agent

    Shamorie Ponds is expected to join Virtus Roma of the Italian Basketball League for the remainder of the season.

    Ponds started the season with the Rockets and then joined the Raptors but he was recently waived. He can be cut in all leagues.

  • Marques Bolden
    C, Free Agent

    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.

    Bolden went undrafted out of Duke this past summer. He signed with the Cavs for the summer league and the training camp, while he has made just one NBA appearance. 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.
