The Jazz announced that they have agreed to terms with Kyle Collinsworth, while in a corresponding move, they have waived Trevon Blueitt.
Collinsworth’s deal with the Jazz comes a day after the team’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, acquired him from Raptors 905, the affiliate of the Raptors. Last year, in 28 games in the G League, he averaged 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.8 steals in 31.1 minutes per game, while shooting 44.9 percent from the field. He isn’t expected to make the final roster but he should stick with the Salt Lake City Stars for the foreseeable future.

The Raptors will start Kyle Lowry, Kyle Collinsworth, C.J. Miles, Kawhi Leonard and Jonas Valanciunas on Tuesday in Utah.
Nick Nurse is already shaking things up before the season, as he promised he would. Collinsworth, a Utah native from BYU, gets the start over Danny Green tonight and Valanciunas replaces Serge Ibaka to mark the changes. Although Collinsworth is unlikely to make the roster, he gets to start in front of a hometown crowd in Salt Lake City.

The Raptors have signed Kyle Collinsworth to a partially guaranteed contract.
Collinsworth played with the Mavs last season and got a decent amount of playing time down the stretch given their injury woes. The partial guarantee suggests that this is an Exhibit 10 deal, which would give the Raptors the chance to convert this into a two-way eventually. With 18 players on the camp roster and three quality point guards already in the fold, Collinsworth is facing an uphill battle to make the Toronto roster.

The Dallas Mavericks released guard Kyle Collinsworth of Friday.
Collinsworth signed a multiyear deal last season and despite being release, will somehow still play for Dallas in the Summer League, which is a bit odd. Hopefully the all-time NCAA Division 1 triple-doubles leader (with 12) can find his way onto somebody's roster before the season starts.

Kyle Collinsworth played a staggering 44 minutes in Tuesday's season finale, capitalizing on the opportunity and producing 10 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and a steal.
Collinsworth went 4-of-13 from the field and split his four trips to the line but he did have two strong outings in his last four games, with a 35-minute effort on April 4 resulting in 13-9-6. The top-400 player does seem to have fans in the organization but it took some injuries and shutdowns for him to produce.
April 7, 2018, 3:39 pmKyle CollinsworthPG, Dallas Mavericks
Kyle Collinsworth (left Achilles soreness) is questionable to play against the Sixers on Sunday.
The Mavs have really dialed back the minutes of Yogi Ferrell so there's opportunity in the backcourt if Collinsworth can play. That alone has him on the board as a streaming option over the final two games of the year (assuming he's healthy) but he's probably not someone you should feel safe about counting on.

April 5, 2018, 3:24 pmDennis Smith Jr.PG, Dallas Mavericks
Salah Mejri, Dwight Powell and Dennis Smith Jr. are all listed as questionable for Friday’s game vs. Detroit with various knee injuries.
We will need to update you more when we hear their statuses tomorrow as the Mavericks rotation could get very sloppy. Powell and Smith Jr. missed the Mavericks game versus Orlando and Mejri exited after only one minute played. Kyle Collinsworth flirted with a triple double off of the bench while Aaron Harrison and Johnathan Motley played 42 and 41 minutes respectively. If Smith Jr. is out again, Collinsworth may be worth a look as J.J. Barea is also out Friday. We will have a clearer breakdown of who will play tomorrow.

Kyle Collinsworth delivered 13 points, nine rebounds, six assists and a steal in 35 minutes of action against the Magic on Wednesday.
Collinsworth has rocketed up the depth chart with the Mavs now down two point guards, and minutes in the high twenties are conceivable over the final few contests. He's still only an option in very deep leagues but owners should at least feel comfortable about Collinsworth seeing the floor.
April 4, 2018, 9:52 pmJ.J. BareaPG, Dallas Mavericks
J.J Barea says he will not play again this season for the Mavs.
This isn't really surprising as oblique injuries tend to take some time to recover and there's no reason for him to risk worsening the injuries while the Mavs are in Operation Crash and Burn for Ayton. It's unfortunate for fantasy owners using him as a late-round asset but it opens the door for young guys like Aaron Harrison and Kyle Collinsworth to fill in a large bulk of minutes.

April 4, 2018, 8:22 pmJ.J. BareaPG, Dallas Mavericks
J.J. Barea will not return to the game on Wednesday with an oblique strain.
Barea has been a nice late-round value as an assist specialist so this may be a harmful blow to teams in very deep leagues. Oblique strains usually cost players a lengthy amount of time, so this probably spells the end of the campaign for Barea. The next man up for the Mavericks is some combination of Kyle Collinsworth and Yogi Ferrell.

Kyle Collinsworth (knee) and Salah Mejri (hamstring) are both listed as questionable for Thursday’s tilt vs. the Jazz.
Collinsworth has averaged 20 mpg over the last five games, but remains outside the fantasy discussion with poor shooting. The 26-year-old did average a steal per game during that stretch so maybe very deep leaguers could use him for the rest of the season. The Mavs are tanking and can afford to give him a decent role. Mejri is a non-factor and can be safely ignored.

Yogi Ferrell returned to the bench on Tuesday and delivered 15 points (6-of-14 shooting) with three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes of action.
The workload looks right for Yogi the rest of the way, and it shouldn’t matter whether he starts or comes off the bench. Owners in 12-team leagues can give him a look for points and threes despite tonight’s 1-of-6 showing from behind the arc, while he’s a pretty solid pickup in any deeper formats. Kyle Collinsworth, the team’s other reserve guard, finished with eight points, five assists and a three in his 20 minutes. He’s a deep league-only player.
March 20, 2018, 11:01 amJ.J. BareaPG, Dallas Mavericks
J.J. Barea is not listed on the Mavs’ injury list heading into Tuesday’s game.
Barea sat out a game last week with a rib strain but the injury was not considered anything serious and he should be out there tonight. With Dennis Smith sidelined, Barea and Yogi Ferrell should be very busy tonight and look like very good streaming options. The team of course is tanking and Kyle Collinsworth along with Jalen Jones are also worth a look in deeper leagues. Jones played 29 minutes on Saturday scoring a career-high 16 points and he could be someone the Mavs will take a hard look at towards the last few weeks of the season.

March 19, 2018, 2:21 pmDennis SmithPG, Dallas Mavericks
Rick Carlisle revealed that Dennis Smith Jr. will miss multiple games with his sprained ankle.
Smith is no longer wearing a walking boot but won’t play Tuesday, has now been informally ruled out for Thursday and is highly unlikely to play at all this week. Carlisle said “He’s going to be out for awhile, but not serious. I don’t have a timetable, but he’s going to miss, I would say, some games.” Yogi Ferrell and Kyle Collinsworth will start while J.J. Barea will probably stick in his bench role once he’s healthy enough to return to action. Barea is the play for assists, Ferrell is the play for points and threes and Collinsworth is a deep league dart throw who at least has a steady workload coming. Smith can be dropped in re-draft formats.
