Game Recaps

Jayson Tatum scored 15 points on 6-for-15 shooting in Tuesday's Summer League win over the Sixers, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one three-pointer.

Fantasy Impact: Tatum has been impressive in Summer League action showing off many different moves on offense and looks like he is ready to score in the NBA. The rookie does need to work on his passing and defense if he wants to get a serious role in his first year. The Celtics will have a deep team and are in a position to go far in the playoffs and won't be relying on Tatum to often. He should be grabbed in Dynasty leagues but is not ready to be drafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Skal Labissiere scored 10 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and two blocks in the loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: Skal was coming on strong at the end of last season, and hopefully he can carry that on to this season. He may start this year, but will lose minutes to Zach Randolph.

Buddy Hield scored 16 points with five rebounds, two blocks and one assist in the loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: If there's one thing to take away from this game, it's that Buddy has been given the green light to shoot. He put up 16 shots in 24 minutes. He may surprise some people this year, he's worth a late round flier in drafts.

Jack Cooley scored 11 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in the loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: Cooley may not make the Kings roster, so he won't have any fantasy value.

Justin Jackson scored 18 points with two rebounds and one block in his Summer League debut.

Fantasy Impact: The Kings don't have many small forwards on their team, so Justin may be in line for a lot of minutes to start the season.

De'Aaron Fox scored 18 points with five steals, four assists, three rebounds and only one turnover in his Summer League debut.

Fantasy Impact: Fox was a blur on the court against the Suns. He is going to be a fun player to watch over his career, keep him on your radar if George Hill misses any games.

Jaylen Brown had a strong performance in his first summer league game of the season vs the 76ers. He went 10-for-16 from the field, scored 29 points, and collected 13 rebounds. Brown also recorded a steal, block, and three 3-pointers.

Fantasy Impact: A great way to start off the summer league. Brown and Tatum looked magnificent in this one, they led the Celtics to an impressive 89-88 victory over the divisional rival 76ers. Brown looked strong in all facets of his game, except at the free throw line where he went 6-for-10. He's only going to get better.

Tyler Zeller has been officially waived on Sunday by the Celtics. This was reportedly going to be the case for Zeller, according to reports on Saturday. The Celtics drop his $8 million salary before the July 4th deadline.

Fantasy Impact: Zeller isn't a fantasy option next season regardless of team but he could find a new team or re-sign with the Celtics.

Shaun Livingston will also return to the Warriors on a three-year deal worth $24 million. The third year of the deal is a partial guarantee of $2 million. Great to see Livingston get paid after that horrible knee injury just a few years ago.

Fantasy Impact: Livingston will continue to backup Steph Curry who just sign a new deal himself worth $200 plus million. Livingston could be asked to do more on the defensive end if Andre Iguodala bolts. Livingston isn't a fantasy re-draft player next season.
