  • Tyler Cook
    PF, Free Agent

    After getting waived by the Nuggets, Tyler Cook was claimed off waivers by the Cavs, where he will remain on his two-way contract.

    Good for Tyler Cook, although this will not change his fantasy relevance. It is still safe to ignore him.

  • Keljin Blevins
    SF, Free Agent

    On Friday, the Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey, announced the waiving of Keljin Blevins, Troy Caupain and London Perrantes.

    The team had already used their two two-way contracts, and with the regular season approaching Blazers management had some tough decisions to make. As the Blazers have no G League affiliate to land on, we'll have to see if Blevins, Caupain and Perrantes pop up on another G League roster or elsewhere down the line.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Free Agent

    The Bulls and Grizzlies are among teams that have spoken with Iman Shumpert, per Shams Charania.

    Shumpert is still one of the more notable players left on the market, though fantasy owners would probably want him to stay away from already-crowded spots in Chicago and Memphis. Wherever he signs, Shumpert is unlikely to impact the fantasy landscape.

  • Jaron Blossomgame
    SF, Free Agent

    The Rockets have waived Jaron Blossomgame and Michael Frazier on Thursday.

    Neither player was on the fantasy radar and can be expected to play professional basketball in the G League or overseas this season.

  • Amir Hinton
    PG, Free Agent

    The Knicks have waived point guard Amir Hinton on Wednesday.

    Hinton was unable to play in either of the Knicks' first two preseason games before being waived. Hinton may end up playing in the G League and is not on the fantasy radar.

    The Nuggets have waived Tyler Cook who signed a two-way contract earlier this offseason.

    With Cook waived, the Nuggets now have one two-way contract available. They are likely to give this contract to a training camp invitee who has impressed. One name that has come up is P.J. Dozier. This transaction doesn't impact the fantasy landscape.

  • C.J. Wilcox
    SG, Free Agent

    The Pacers have waived C.J. Wilcox, Amida Brimah and Walter Lemon Jr. on Wednesday.

    None of these players were on the fantasy radar. The Pacers roster is now set with 15 full-time players and two two-way players.

  • Thomas Robinson
    C-F, Free Agent

    Thomas Robinson has reached an agreement with the Sichuan Blue Whales where he will replace Maciej Lampe, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

    Robinson played with the Spurs in the Summer League but he couldn’t materialize his performance into a training camp deal and he will head back overseas. The No. 5 overall pick by the Kings in the 2012 NBA draft, he averaged 21.9 points and 13.6 rebounds playing in China last year.

  • Hasheem Thabeet
    C, Free Agent

    Hasheem Thabeet signed a G-League contract on Tuesday per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Thabeet had multiple workouts this summer but ultimately came up short on getting a camp invite. He'll play in the G League with an eye towards getting back in the NBA at some point if he shows well. Thabeet has no fantasy value.

  • Jakeenan Gant
    PF, Free Agent

    According to Scott Agness of the Athletic, The Pacers have waived JaKeenan Gant.

    Gant was signed to an Exhibit 10 contract but failed to impress enough to make it to the end of preseason. He may end up playing for the Pacers G-League affiliate.

  • Anthony Bennett
    PF, Free Agent

    The Rockets have waived Anthony Bennett.

    Bennett joined the Rockets to fight for a roster spot in training camp. However, the former first overall pick had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee which ultimately prevented him from trying to make the team. Hopefully Bennett can have a speedy recovery and return to basketball at some point.

  • Hasheem Thabeet
    C, Free Agent

    Hasheem Thabeet worked out for the Warriors on Friday.

    Thabeet has not played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season after being selected second overall in 2009 but the Warriors are kicking the tires as they are thin in the frontcourt with Alen Smailagic and Willie Cauley-Stein currently on the shelf.

  • Donatas Motiejunas
    PF, Free Agent

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 27 points on 12-of-23 shooting with 11 rbeounds, three assists, three steals and two triples in Monday's preseason game against the Rockets.

    Motiejunas had a short three-game stint with the Spurs before signing with the Shanghai Sharks and had a little fun against the team that drafted him. He'll play out the next season in China so there's nothing fantasy-relevant about him.

  • William McDowell-White
    PG, Free Agent

    The Rockets have waived William McDowell-White on Thursday to create a roster spot for Ryan Anderson.

    McDowell-White will try to latch on with another team before camps open next Tuesday.

  • Jordan Crawford
    SG, Free Agent

    Jordan Crawford has been working out for the Pistons this week ahead of training camp.

    The 30-year old Crawford was playing in China last year where he averaged 36.5 ppg. While Crawford hasn't been in the NBA since the 2017-18 season, he's had a few workouts this summer for teams. Training camps kick off next Tuesday. We will see if Crawford gets an invite to join.
