  • Kyle Korver
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    This is not the worst landing spot for Korver but he will strictly be a backup and entering his 17th season, he should not be relevant in standard leagues. He was able to knock down 2.1 triples per game in only 20.1 minutes last season so he may have value as a specialist in super-deep leagues however.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have officially re-signed Kelly Oubre.

    Oubre is headed back to Phoenix on a two-year, $30 million deal and lost out on a bigger payday as teams alternately gobbled up cap space or played a long waiting game in free agency, leaving one of the top RFAs on the board to settle for a deal that clocks in below expectations. Oubre missed the end of the season because of thumb surgery but blossomed in Phoenix, averaging 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.7 3s on .453 shooting. That was good for top-50 value, and while that might be too lofty to expect a repeat without some breaks (the efficiency is a definite question mark), it's clear that Oubre is finally on a team that will commit to his future and there will be enough playing time to make him a late-middle round option in fantasy drafts.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have officially signed Frank Kaminsky to a two-year, $10 million deal.

    Kaminsky officially joins the young roster that GM James Jones and the Suns are building. He will have some competition backing up Dario Saric as the team is also planning to sign Cheick Diallo. Kaminsky will have some stand-alone value as a deep threat but he doesn't provide much value beyond shooting.

  • Cheick Diallo
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Suns have signed Cheick Diallo to a two-year contract.

    Diallo has shown flashes in the NBA through his first three seasons with the Pelicans, Unfortunately, he has yet to see the opportunity needed to provide fantasy value as he has yet to surpass 14.0MPG in any season. The Suns could provide an avenue for Diallo to get more playing time off the bench similar to what we saw from Richaun Holmes last season. This is a terrific landing spot for the young big man.

  • Jared Harper
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Jared Harper has agreed to a two-way contract with the Suns, per The Athletic's Gina Mizell.

    Harper was a standout with Auburn last season and averaged 10.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in four Summer League tilts with Phoenix. There's minimal fantasy impact here as the Suns already have four point guards on the roster.

  • Dragan Bender
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops is reporting that Dragan Bender has a verbal commitment to join EuroLeague champions CSKA Moscow on a multiyear deal.

    The report adds that the former No. 4 pick will take the offer unless there is an intriguing offer to him from an NBA team in the 11th hour. Bender was linked to the Cavs and the Raptors but he hasn’t been able to generate much interest in the market and the move to Europe might be the optimal choice for him now.

  • Dragan Bender

    As Dragan Bender continues to explore the NBA market, the Cavs and the Raptors are among the teams that have inquired about the former lottery pick.

    The European market also remains an option for the Croatian forward as CSKA Moscow and Fenerbache are monitoring his situation. Bender is still only 21 years old and teams around the NBA could still take a chance on him after what has been a disappointing NBA career so far with averages of 5.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in 131 career games.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo posted 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, three dimes, three 3s and two steals in Friday's 94-64 win over China.

    Okobo has played reasonably well in the 2019 Summer League. With one NBA season under his belt, the Frenchman should have a solid footing as the third PG in the Suns' deptch chart behind Ricky Rubio and Tyler Johnson (at times).

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Gina Mizell has reported that Kelly Oubre Jr. has agreed to ink a two-year, $30 million deal with the Suns.

    This makes sense as Oubre truly came to his own when he moved to Phoenix last season. He's a versatile forward who does a bit of everything, making him a sneaky pick in the middle-to-late rounds of most drafts.

  • Kyle Korver
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Keith Pompey of the Phily Inquirer is reporting that the Sixers are one of the frontrunners to sign Kyle Korver after he becomes an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.

    The team had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the Cavaliers for Korver last summer, while they were also interested in acquiring him before the Cavs traded him to the Jazz last November. Getting Korver would enable the Sixers to bring back a fan favorite who is one of the league’s top three-point shooters. The 16-year veteran shot 39.7 percent on three-pointers last season with the Cavs and the Jazz, while he has shot 42.9 percent from three-point range through 1,174 career games. Korver would most likely come off the bench as Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Joel Embiid are the expected starters. The Sixers don’t have a proven knockdown three-point shooter on Korver’s level and he would be able to fill that hole if he chooses to return to Philadelphia.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo scored 15 points with three treys and one steal on 6-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Okobo added four turnovers, four fouls and zero assists as the starting point guard for the Suns. It was a forgettable performance for 31st pick in the 2018 NBA draft. With Ricky Rubio and Ty Jerome in town now, Okobo is going to be bumped back into a deep-reserve role for the Suns next season.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio is now officially a Sun after the team announced his signing on Monday.

    Rubio is in a great situation as the expected starting point guard of a young Suns squad that likes to run. He's in for a bounce-back season if he can avoid the minor injuries that set him back in his 2018-19 campaign.

  • Kyle Korver
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have waived Kyle Korver.

    It was only a matter of time before the team waived Korver. They're a young team and still right in the middle of a rebuild project so Korver will likely want to play for a contender. The Lakers, Sixers and Bucks were all reported to have interest in the 38-year old sharpshooter.

  • Jared Harper
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Jared Harper played well on Sunday against the Knicks as he put up 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

    Harper went undrafted out of Auburn and really controlled the pace of this game. He added four assists and two steals to the box score. Rayvonte Rice chipped in 19 points on five 3-pointers.

  • James Palmer
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    James Palmer led the way for the Suns on Sunday as he put up 23 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a 105-100 win over the Knicks.

    He knocked down four triples and added four rebounds to the box score. Palmer went undrafted out of Nebraska and will have to remain on top of his game to ink a two-way contract with an NBA team.
