    Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak said that Cody Martin, Jalen McDaniels, Robert Franks and Kobi Simmons will play primarily in the G League this season.

    No surprise here, as Charlotte has been diligent about making its rookies log time with the Greensboro Swarm in recent seasons. This group is not worth monitoring in fantasy leagues.

    On Sunday, President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Mitch Kupchak announced Kobi Simmons' contract had been converted to a two-way deal.

    Simmons did enough during the preseason to secure a spot on the Hornets' roster. In four preseason games Simmons averaged 4.3 points, 2.0 assists and 1.5 rebounds, over an average of 12 minutes per game. Simmons is highly unlikely to have an active role in fantasy this season.

    Free agent guard Kobi Simmons has agreed to a one-year contract with the Hornets.

    Simmons went undrafted out of Arizona in 2017 and had previous stints in the NBA with the Cavs and the Grizzlies. He will compete for a roster spot in the training camp with Terry Rozier and Devonte’ Graham the lone point guards officially under contract at the moment.

    Kobi Simmons is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Cvas.

    Simmons appeared in 32 games last season for the Grizzlies, but was recently released by the team. It is hard to imagine Simmons getting any run playing behind Collin Sexton, George Hill and Jordan Clarkson.

    Kobi Simmons was among the group to recently work out for the Cavs, joining Tyler Ulis, Rodney Purvis and Brandon Paul.

    Ulis had previously been reported but the other three guards are new names. Cleveland would probably like to dump their veteran backcourt players sooner rather than later but nobody in this group would be a great fantasy play on the Cavs. Simmons was surprisingly waived by the Grizzlies at the end of August but should be able to find work soon.

    The Grizzlies have waived guard Kobi Simmons.

    Simmons had some nice games last year when the Grizzlies were using anyone and everyone in the wake of guard "injuries" but he didn't last long on a two-way deal this summer. He shouldn't have any issues getting a camp look from somebody.

    Kobi Simmons scored 23 points on 6-of-15 shooting with a 3-pointer, six rebounds and two assists against the Blazers on Monday.

    Simmons was a two-way contract player for the Grizzlies last season and is making a push to be on the roster at the start of training camp. The Grizzlies lack wing scorers, but it's still a tossup as to whether Simmons is the answer to that question.

    Kobi Simmons had another nice outing for the Grizzlies on Tuesday, finishing with 20 points, five rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Simmons shot 8-of-18 from the field and 1-of-4 from three. The fact that he didn't get an assist is a little concerning, but at the end of the day it's Summer League and those can be hard to come by. He's in line to backup Mike Conley this season and could be someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues.

    Kobi Simmons managed 21 points in the Grizzlies' first Summer League game on Monday.

    Simmons added two rebounds, three assists and a steal in 27 minutes, shooting 8-of-13 from the field and 2-of-3 from three. Simmons should be in for an expanded role this season and, while it's Summer League, is promising to see him start on a high note.

    Kobi Simmons started at point guard in Wednesday's season finale, scoring 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting with five assists and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Simmons finished with just under 20 mpg in 32 games this season, landing outside the top-300. All of the injuries and rest days in Memphis did leave him with some worthwhile lines but you really needed fortunate timing to ride with Simmons outside of extremely deep leagues.

    Kobi Simmons managed a career-high 20 points against the Pistons on Sunday, adding two rebounds and seven assists on 7-of-10 shooting from the field and 4-of-7 from three.

    Simmons has been close to 30 minutes of late and it was only a matter of time before he turned in a performance like this. He's barely a deep league guy, but as the season is almost over you'll have to sit tight until next year to have a look at him.

  • Tyreke Evans
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyreke Evans remains out on Friday as he is away from the team due to personal reasons.

    We do not know the reasons behind Evan being away from the team for so long now. Hopefully he is okay, but it is safe to assume he is done for the season. Marquis Teague and Kobi Simmons will fill the point guard spot with Ben McLemore and MarShon Brooks playing the two. The Grizzlies cannot try harder to lose games right now.

    Wayne Selden Jr. is out Friday vs. the Kings with right knee soreness.

    With Andrew Harrison also out the Grizzlies will go back to the four guard rotation of Kobi Simmons, Ben McLemore, MarShon Brooks, and Marquis Teague that worked well on Wednesday. All of them should see 20-plus minutes but it will be hard to trust all of them.

    PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Andrew Harrison is out Friday vs. the Kings as he deals with a right wrist injury and a left shoulder injury.

    Kobi Simmons and Ben McLemore drew the start on Wednesday while Marquis Teague and MarShon Brooks got the bench minutes. Yes, you read that right. Marquis Teague and MarShon Brooks played heavy minutes in an NBA game Wednesday night. The tank-athon is a beautiful beast. Brooks actually busted out for 25 points, seven dimes, four boards, two steals, and five treys in 36 minutes. All four of the guards should be getting minutes in the 20s, but it's hard to trust any Grizzlies player right now.

    Kobi Simmons went for six points, three rebounds, five assists and three steals in the Grizzlies' 107-97 loss to the Jazz on Friday night.

    Simmons tied a career-high in both assists and steals tonight. His minutes and numbers are seeing a steady increase as the Grizzlies' tank comes along. In deep leagues, with Simmons playing minutes in the 20s, Kobi deserves a look.
