Darrun Hilliard    G  Rockets

 

 

Darrun Hilliard was traded to the Rockets on Wednesday. It's still unknown if he's going to be headed to the Clippers, but he almost certainly won't be on the Rockets. If they do keep him, he'll likely be waived before this weekend. Hilliard likely won't be in the rotation regardless of where he lands.

Jarrett Allen    C  Nets

 

 

Jarrett Allen will not play in Las Vegas due to a right hip flexor strain. He suffered the injury two weeks ago at a pre-draft workout. That means the Nets may have still taken him at 22 knowing Allen was banged up. Still, he is expected to compete for the starting job in a very fast-paced offense. He's a fantasy sleeper in deep leagues.

Matt Barnes    G/F  Warriors

 

 

Matt Barnes has pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from his involvement in a New York City nightclub brawl back in December. Barnes will need to complete 10 days of community service as part of his punishment, and he will also likely be receiving a fine or suspension from the league for his involvement in the late-night altercation.

Chandler Parsons    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Chandler Parsons said that his surgically repaired left knee is now totally pain-free, and he's been working out 4-5 hours a day. It's nice to see Parsons doing well in his rehab, but the question remains as to whether or not his body can handle the rigors of going through an 82-game season. After putting in career-lows across the board and only appearing in 34 games last season, Parsons won't be a very attractive guy to target in standard fantasy leagues next year.

DeAndre Liggins    G  Clippers

 

 

DeAndre Liggins was traded to the Clippers on Wednesday. The Clippers now lead the league in DeAndres -- they won't get DeAndre Bembry from the Hawks, though. Liggins did have 19 starts for the Cavs before he was cut after the trade deadline. Liggins isn't a lock to be on the Clippers roster next year.

Tim Quarterman    G  Clippers

 

 

The Rockets traded Tim Quarterman to the Clippers on Wednesday. The Blazers dealt him to the Rockets earlier today, so he didn't stay on Houston's roster for long. The Blazers Twitter also had a great tweet about acquiring cash considerations (tweet in link below). While Quarterman can get on a highlight for his dunks, he likely won't be getting minutes with the Clippers, assuming he stays there.

Blake Griffin    F  Clippers

 

 

The Clippers will try to re-sign Blake Griffin as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Los Angeles sending away Chris Paul to Houston may have hurt their chances of retaining Griffin, although they still have money on their side as an incentive as they'll be able to offer him roughly $50 million more than any other team could. The Thunder have long been rumored to have an interest in going after Griffin as a free agent, but they'll need to move around some salary in order to be players in the Griffin sweepstakes.
