  • Darren Collison
    PG, Free Agent

    Darren Collison is expected to make a decision on his playing future after the All-Star break, and that the Lakers and Clippers are at the top of his list.

    The report also adds that Collison is in shape and wouldn't take long to be game-ready. Collison would be a great addition to any contending team's backcourt, and he won't cost you any trade assets. The Lakers could use Collison's services more, so we will see where he ultimately chooses. Keep a close eye on this situation and be ready to grab him when he makes his decision in the majority of leagues. Collison was a top-80 player last season in 9-cat leagues.

  • Eric Mika
    C, Free Agent

    The Kings and Eric Mika have agreed on a 10-day contract.

    Mika has been lighting up the G-League and they'll need his body with Dewayne Dedmon dealing with an illness and Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes still out.

  • JR Smith
    SG, Free Agent

    J.R Smith is rumored to have a workout scheduled with the Lakers this week according to a report from Heavy.com.

    The free agent guard has been off the radar for a while, and should he actually get this work out it would seem like a case of former teammate LeBron James doing him a solid more than anything. It feels unlikely that he'd make the team, and even less likely that he'd have any fantasy relevance if he did.

  • Isaiah Whitehead
    SG, Free Agent

    Isaiah Whitehead has signed with Mornar Bar of Montenegro.

    Whitehead started his professional career appearing in 89 games for the Nets over two seasons. The Pistons signed him on a two-way deal last season but he did not appear in any games. After joining the Blazers for Summer League this season, he took his talents to Kazakhstan and now makes his way to Montenegro. Perhaps the 24 year old journeyman still has time to make it back to the NBA at some point.

    The Hornets have waived two-way player Robert Franks on Wednesday.

    Franks failed to play in a single NBA game this season as he didn't impress with the Hornets' G league affiliate.

  • Miles Plumlee
    C, Free Agent

    The Perth Wildcats have signed seven-year NBA veteran Miles Plumlee for the remainder of the 2019/20 NBL season.

    Plumlee was selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Pacers and went on to play 347 NBA games with the Suns, the Bucks, the Hornets and the Hawks. He is now 31 years old and unlikely to return to the NBA any time soon.

  • Eric Mika
    C, Free Agent

    Eric Mika has been released by Chinese team Xinjiang with rumors of him having an NBA opportunity.

    Mika was on the Kings' G League squad for six games this season where he averaged 19.3 points, 15.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 37.2 before signing with Xinjiang of the CBA where he averaged 19.9 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals in seven games. The report did not specify which team was interested but it likely wouldn't be in a significant role anyway.

  • David Nwaba
    SF, Free Agent

    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Nets have waived David Nwaba (torn Achilles) on Thursday.

    Nwaba tragically suffered an Achilles injury after earning himself a part of the rotation. Nwaba played in 20 games off the bench for the Nets and averaged 5.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 three-pointers and 0.4 turnovers in 13.4 minutes per game.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Free Agent

    Jeff Green, who was waived by the Jazz on Monday, is now an unrestricted free agent after clearing waivers on Thursday.

    Green was producing per-game fantasy value just inside the top 300 while playing for the Jazz and isn't a candidate to watch except for 30-team leagues.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Free Agent

    The Nets have reportedly filed for a disabled player exception in the wake of David Nwaba's (torn achillies) injury, and if approved, could look at re-signing Iman Shumpert according to Shams Charania and Alex Schiffer of The Athletic.

    Shumpert has already played for the Nets this year, and provides similar defensive prowess that Nwaba did before going down. He is not expected to hold any fantasy value should this reunion come to fruition.

  • Stanton Kidd
    PF, Free Agent

    Stanton Kidd has signed with Australia's Melbourne United of the NBL.

    Kidd was undrafted in 2015 and was an overseas journeyman until he made his NBA debut this season for the Jazz. He earned a roster spot after a strong Summer League and appeared in four games, playing 3.8 minutes per until he was eventually waived a month ago.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Free Agent

    The Nets have waived Iman Shumpert on Thursday.

    This move comes at a time when Wilson Chandler is expected back from his 25-game suspension. Shumpert is a free agent for now but there is a possibility that he ends up on another team at some point this season. He is off the fantasy radar.

  • Zach Norvell
    PG, Free Agent

    The Lakers have waived two-way player Zach Norvell on Wednesday.

    Norvell was on a two-way contract and only played in 5 minutes of action across two games. He is off the fantasy radar.

  • Andrew Bogut
    C, Free Agent

    Andrew Bogut said that he is open to returning to the NBA later this season if the right opportunity shows up.

    Bogut played in Australia last year and then joined the Warriors for the end of the regular season and the playoffs. "An opportunity to try and win a championship will be the main thing in the NBA. But I wouldn't go back to the NBA just to play in the NBA, it's more about trying to win a title and somewhere where I feel comfortable for the family”, said the veteran big. The buyout market and potential injuries will determine a lot, but it seems unlikely that we see Bogut return to the NBA any time soon.

  • Jamal Crawford
    SG, Free Agent

    Veteran guard Jamal Crawford is 39 years old and remains without a team, but the Sixers could be interested in signing him, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    The Sixers are off to a great start but they seem to lack a scoring punch off the bench. Crawford is not quite the 3-point specialist like the Sixers had the past two seasons in JJ Redick, but he has a knack for making big shots. He did average 35.3 points, 6.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds while shooting 52 percent in the last three games of the season last year, but he wasn’t able to earn a training camp invite. In order to acquire Crawford, the Sixers would have to waive or trade a player to make room on the roster, so it seems unlikely that a move is imminent.
