    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.

    The Pacers have signed G Walter Lemon Jr. to an unspecified contract on Thursday.

    Lemon Jr. got a lot of run for the Bulls down the stretch last season as they dealt with a multitude of injuries, and actually performed quite admirably. If Lemon were to make the team, he'd be a deep reserve.

    The Bulls have waived Walter Lemon Jr.

    Just like with Shaquille Harrison, the Bulls waived Lemon Jr. after signing Thaddeus Young. There was a time where Lemon Jr. held top-70 value last season but it's highly unlikely he gets anywhere near that number next year. His situation could change depending on what team signs him but as of right now he's not worth drafting.

    Walter Lemon Jr. tallied nine points, four rebounds and two assists in a disappointing 18 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

    Lemon failed to record a defensive stat in tonight's dud. Lemon, who came out of the gates swinging, just didn't have it tonight as he took a backseat to Ryan Arcidiacono. Lemon will try to rebound in Wednesday's season finale with the Sixers.

    Walter Lemon Jr scored eight points and shot for 4-of-16 from the field with eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in Saturday night’s home loss to the Sixers.

    Lemon Jr. has been top 70-value in 8/9-cat leagues over the last two weeks but just didn’t have his shot tonight. The Bulls have two games left on the season, so expect them to keep rolling Lemon Jr. out there for those last two games. Shaq Harrison started and played 23 minutes but was only able to contribute eight points, two assists and one steal. Harrison and has been right around top-100 over the past two weeks, and should also continue to see starts for the Bulls as they look to next season.

    Walter Lemon Jr. started on Monday against the Knicks and scored six points on 3-of-12 shooting to go with two rebounds, five assists and three steals.

    Lemon's shooting was unlikely to carry on, but the three steals saved his line tonight. It's going to be hard to expect anything out of him, but since he's starting and logging big minutes he's worth a look. Ryan Arcidiacono played 17 minutes off the bench and scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with a rebound, two assists and a 3-pointer.

    Walter Lemon Jr. will start for the Bulls in Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Lemon set career highs across the board in his debut with the Bulls on Saturday. There's a chance he can put up reasonable deep-league stats as silly season fully blooms. He's worth a look if you're still playing and need guard stats.

    Walter Lemon Jr. made his Bulls debut in Saturday's 101-124 loss to the Raptors and established career-highs across the board with 31 minutes, 19 points on 8-for-15 shooting, four rebounds, six assists, four steals and block.

    Those are literally all career-highs for Lemon, whose only prior NBA experience before tonight was a five-game stint with New Orleans last season. There have been whispers that he'll get the chance to start a couple games before the end of the season, and while this type of performance can't be expected to repeat, it does put him on the map in deeper leagues. With so few games remaining, whether or not production is sustainable is completely irrelevant — if you need guard stats and are feeling lucky, knock yourself out. Fellow G-League call-up Rawle Alkins also set career-highs with 18 minutes, seven points, eight rebounds and three assists tonight.

    The Bulls are signing guard Walter Lemon Jr. to a deal for the remainder of the season.

    The Bulls are limping to the finish line as they are being decimated by injuries. Lemon will provide guard depth, and may even carve out a role if he can show well with not much in the way of talent in front of him. Lemon isn't a recommended add, but keep an eye on how the Bulls rotation looks, as there is still room for another out-of-nowhere fantasy contributor down the stretch.

    The Celtics have waived Walt Lemon Jr.

    Lemon was playing well in the G-league but was never going to get any kind of playing time with the Celtics on his two-way deal. It still seemed like an odd time to waive him. Another team might scoop him up on a two-way or G-league deal, but he won't be on any fantasy radars.

    The Celtics and Walt Lemon Jr. have agreed on a two-way contract.

    Lemon Jr. appeared in five games for the Pelicans last season, but was able to showcase his passing ability during Summer League. He averaged 6.4 assists to go along with 13.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game over the five games in July, but should not be on anyone's radar for fantasy purposes.

    The Pelicans will bring back Walter Lemon Jr. for their Summer League roster.

    Lemon suited up for the Pellies five times last season and made it through two 10-day deals before being cut loose. He's a lot closer to the NBA than most of the other Summer League additions that have been announced in the last 12 hours.

    After completing two 10-day contracts with the Pelicans, New Orleans will not re-sign guard Walter Lemon Jr. for the rest of the season.

    Lemon has played in five games since signing his first 10-day deal at the end of February, averaging just 3.4 points and 1.0 assist in 7.0 minutes per contest. He will likely head back to the G-League with hopes of securing another call-up elsewhere.
