  • 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.

  • Marques Bolden

    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.

    PG-SG, Free Agent

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

    Johnson was waived by the Suns on Sunday and is now officially a free agent. He projects to have minimal fantasy value even if he is able to sign with one of the LA teams.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
