Jared Dudley has expressed interest in signing with the Celtics during free agency.
Dudley played his college ball in Boston and will take aim at returning to the city come July 1. Dudley averaged 4.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists with the Nets last season, but more importantly provided a veteran presence in the locker room.

An announcement was released on Sunday that Jared Dudley will be fined $25,000 for his role in a third-quarter altercation in the Net's last game vs. the Sixers.
Jimmy Butler is also getting fined $15,000 for his participation. Both players got lucky that they weren't suspended by the league, considering that it has been wanting to use an iron grip to control violence during games.

Jared Dudley and Jimmy Butler have been ejected from Saturday's game after instigating and escalating a fight in the third quarter.
Joel Embiid blocked Jarrett Allen and from Dudley's angle it appeared Embiid whacked Allen's head. He got mostly ball, but Dudley pushed Embiid after the play, which led Butler to push Dudley, which led to a full on fracas that bled into the front row on the baseline. If Embiid had not gotten a flagrant foul on Allen earlier in the series, this whole ordeal likely doesn't happen. Dudley finished the day with eight points in 20 minutes after drawing the start.

Moments before Game 4 tipoff, the Nets unveiled that Jared Dudley and Caris LeVert will start over Rodions Kurucs and DeMarre Carroll.
Carroll has been struggling mightily with his shot this series at 28.0 percent and Kurucs has been equally unimpressive so coach Kenny Atkinson will make a change. Dudley played 28 minutes during the Nets Game 1 win and LeVert has been arguably their best player so far this series.

As expected, the Nets have officially listed Jared Dudley (right calf tightness) as available for Thursday’s matchup against the Sixers.
Dudley’s defensive contribution off the bench was crucial in their Game 1 victory. The Nets could have used his skill set in Game 2. Look for him to take all of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s playing time as the Nets try to take a 2-1 lead in the series.

Jared Dudley (right calf tightness) said that he's good to go for Game 3 on Thursday.
Dudley played a pivotal role in Game 1 but was forced to watch Game 2 from the sidelines. His absence isn't the reason that Brooklyn lost, but he was part of an effective second unit in their victory. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson might see less playing time as a result of Dudley's availability, but if Joel Embiid's knee continues to improve then it might not matter much anyway.

Jared Dudley (right calf tightness) will not play in Game 2 on Monday night.
Dudley was vital to Brooklyn's win in Game 1 and did a great job defending Ben Simmons, so the Nets will need someone else to step up here tonight. Treveon Graham had his shot to defend Simmons and we might see Rondae Hollis-Jefferson log some minutes at center as well, though he won't offer the same spacing that Dudley does.

Jared Dudley (right calf tightness) is a game-time decision for Monday's Game 2.
Dudley was instrumental in Brooklyn's series-opening victory and will factor into the team's small-ball center mix heavily if he can play. If Dudley is forced out tonight, we might see Rondae Hollis-Jefferson pick up some minutes.

Jared Dudley (right calf tightness) is listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Sixers.
Dudley, and the entire Nets bench, was a key factor in them winning Game 1 handily. He even cooked Ben Simmons multiple times in that game. We'll see if he, and Ed Davis (ankle; questionable), are able to go for Game 2.

Jared Dudley picked up a DNP-CD in Wednesday's regular season finale.
Dudley, seemingly every player's favorite teammate, played over 20 minutes per game in 59 games (25 starts) for the Nets this season. He did put up some top-300 value, but he's only worth considering when he's absorbing extra minutes from elsewhere. He'll likely be moving on to another team this summer.

Jared Dudley turned in six points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Sunday.
That's two quality games in a row for Dudley, and he also played more than DeMarre Carroll, Rodions Kurucs, Ed Davis and Spencer Dinwiddie today. He looks to be trending up and can offer up low-end, versatile lines like this, so if you want a dice roll for the final couple of games then you could probably do worse than Dudley at this point. We're at a weird part of the year, in case you couldn't tell.

Jared Dudley tied his season-high in points and rebounds in Saturday night's win against the Bucks, scoring 16 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field and added two 3-pointers, six rebounds and two steals.
Dudley was able to take advantage of Jarrett Allen's low minutes in this game, and did everything he could to show his veteran leadership and presence in his team's win against the Bucks. the 33-year old is no longer an integral part of the rotation at this stage of his career, but if you were able to stream Dudley today in the final week of the fantasy playoffs he definitely made it worth your while.
