Tim Quarterman    G  Rockets

 

 

Portland will be sending Tim Quarterman to Houston in exchange for cash considerations. Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is in the process of collecting non-guaranteed contracts to send to the Clippers in order to make the financials work in the Chris Paul deal, so Quarterman will likely be shipped off to Los Angeles once the CP3 deal goes through. He has no fantasy value.

DeAndre Liggins    G  Rockets

 

 

The Mavs have sent DeAndre Liggins to the Rockets in exchange for cash considerations. Liggins will help fill out the roster in Houston, but he won't be earning enough minutes to make a difference in any fantasy format.

DeAndre Liggins    G  Rockets

 

 

The Mavs have sent DeAndre Liggins to the Rockets in exchange for cash considerations. Liggins will likely be quickly flipped to Los Angeles in order to help facilitate the financial aspects of the Chris Paul trade. Liggins is a non-factor in fantasy hoops.

Frank Ntilikina    G  Knicks

 

 

Frank Ntilikina (knee) appeared to be sporting a slight limp as he left the Knicks' practice facility on Wednesday. Ntilikina was seen with an ice wrap on his knee, but it's currently unclear exactly what happened, or if this is anything to be concerned about. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but considering he was walking (albeit with a limp), it doesn't sound like he's suffered any sort of serious injury. He could be limited at summer league, though.

Serge Ibaka    F/C  Raptors

 

 

Serge Ibaka will not play for Team Spain at EuroBasket this summer. Ibaka is looking for a massive payday as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so it wouldn't make much sense for him to risk injury playing in an optional basketball tournament. The Raptors are reportedly interested in re-signing Ibaka this offseason, but in order to do that, they'll need to part ways with Jonas Valanciunas.

Paul George    G/F  Pacers

 

 

Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is trying to bring in another All-Star to play alongside James Harden and Chris Paul, according to sources of Jeff Goodman of ESPN. While Goodman doesn't name anyone directly in his report, Paul George stands out as one of the more obvious targets out there, and PG-13 has been linked to Houston numerous times in the past couple weeks. PG-13 partnering up with CP3 and Harden in Houston would make that squad an immediate contender out West, so it'll be interesting to see if Morey is able to pull off another blockbuster deal after wooing away Paul from Los Angeles.

Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant will reportedly wait until the Warriors to make most of their free agency acquisitions before re-signing with the club in late-July. Durant is willing to re-sign with the Dubs at a discount in order to help keep their core intact, and him delaying his free agent decision will make it much easier for Golden State to work out deals with soon-to-be free agents Stephen Curry, Andre Iguoadala and Shaun Livingston. KD put in averages of 25.1 points, 8.3 boards, 4.9 dimes, 1.9 triples, 1.1 steals, 1.6 blocks and just 2.2 turnovers per game during his first year with the Warriors, so he'll be an easy top-5 pick on draft day.

Paul, after informing the Clippers he would sign with the Rockets in free agency, opted-in on his contract and was subsequently dealt to Houston in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and a 2018 (top three protected) first round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
