  1. According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, Paul Millsap has a meeting scheduled with the Timberwolves on Saturday. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported on Friday that the Wolves and Nuggets were considered the frontrunners to land Millsap. If Minnesota were able to sign Millsap, they would boast a supremely impressive starting five, featuring Jeff Teague, Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, Paul Millsap and Karl-Anthony Towns. Unfortunately, Millsap's fantasy value would take a big hit if he moved from Atlanta to Minnesota.
  2. Jeff Teague is a "heavy, heavy favorite" with the Wolves, according to Sam Amick of USA Today. The Wolves are obviously going after someone and Teague does make sense. Of course, they'd love to sign Kyle Lowry, but Teague fits in nicely as a great shooter. Over the last three seasons combined, Teague had a 63.2 effective field goal percentage on catch-and-shoot attempts, so that would likely help a team with a lack of perimeter shooting right now.
  3. The Jazz are trading their 2018 first-round pick from the Thunder to Minnesota for Ricky Rubio. This pick is going to be top-14 protected for the Wolves. After a bumpy start for Rubio last season, he was in a major groove late in the season with post-break averages of 16.0 points, 4.6 boards, 10.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 treys. Rudy Gobert blossomed as one of the best roll men in the NBA last year, so the 1-5 PNRs should be a big part of the Utah offense next year. Plus, now Utah can say they have their point guard when they pitch Gordon Hayward on Monday. For now, Rubio looks like he can be a top-15 fantasy point guard next season.
  4. Rumor: Carmelo Anthony wants to go to Houston Carmelo Anthony would like to be bought out of his contract with the Knicks in order to join up with Chris Paul and James Harden in Houston, according to sources of Stephen A. Smith. It's been a while since Smith has been right about something, so take this report with a grain of salt. That being said, Melo has flirted with Houston in the past, and Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is said to be looking to add another star player to join the Rockets' new backcourt duo of CP3 and Harden, so maybe he'll look to add Anthony if Morey is unable to execute a deal for Paul George. Should Anthony secure a buyout from the Knicks, the Cavs would also be in the running for his services.
  5. espn does it again. he is still dtd. idiots..
  6. espn must mark him as 'out'. but they haven't even marked him as out for today. he won't play until monday..
  7. Avery Bradley's minutes restriction has been lifted according to coach Brad Stevens. Bradley played 29 and 30 minutes in his previous two games, so his owners probably saw this coming. Coach Brad Stevens also said that he won't need to rest his guys as much down the stretch because they're "fresher" due to all the missed games with injuries. Bradley could flirt with early-round value the rest of the way. RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This is great news; Bradley is priced as though he were still limited, so he’s available at a discount. Our very own Notorious has dubbed him an elite play on DraftKings and FanDuel as he averaged 33.9 DK points prior to his injury. A decent chunk of that came from 7.0 rebounds per game, however, and the Bulls have the third-best rebounding differential in the league. On the positive side, their defense is pretty average overall – they’re 13th in FPPG to teams, and 14th against shooting guards. Bradley projects as our second-best points-per-dollar option.
  8. Do you suggest stashing him?
  9. i'm sorry Karl.. forgive me for my early criticism.. you'll make my team champion, i'm sure now..
  10. kings would be perfect for him..
  11. Worth to stash?
  12. The Magic are reportedly shopping Nikola Vucevic, Jeff Green and Serge Ibaka. According to sources of Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the Magic may be valuing these pieces a little bit too high, which is why a deal has yet to go down for the Orlando franchise. They are, however, trying to land a major piece and have been linked to guys like Gordan Dragic and Jimmy Butler. It doesn't seem likely that they'll be able to get either of those guys with what they have to offer, but trading away Vuc and Ibaka in order to give more minutes to Aaron Gordon at the four-spot seems to be the theme here.
  13. absolutely vucevic because of the trade rumors..
  14. high trade possibility.. that is why i traded him for last week.. has a similar situation like i.thomas in phoenix who i got too, 2 seasons ago..
