Bol Bol has agreed on a one-year deal with the Phoenix Suns.
The Suns traded Cam Payne in order to open a roster spot for Bol Bol. He showcased his potential in flashes last season with Orlando, averaging 9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.1 blocks in 21.5 minutes. He should be a rotational big man for a Suns team with NBA Finals aspirations.
The Orlando Magic waived Bol Bol.
Bol Bol is coming off a career season where he averaged just under 10 points and six rebounds on 55 percent shooting from the field across 70 games and 33 starts. He should find himself on a new team.
Bol Bol has been placed in the league's health and safety protocols.
Bol will be without a timetable to return. Mo Bamba could see some more minutes in his absence.
Bol Bol finished with 18 points (7-8 FG, 0-1 3P, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block, and one steal during Saturday’s loss to the Raptors.
Bol has been one of the biggest breakout players this season, and he continues to impress. The Magic have given him an opportunity and the seven footer has done nothing but take full advantage of it, scoring double-digit points in nine of his last 13 games. He has a very fantasy friendly skillset and he shows up in every category of the box score most nights. However, Bol can be very inconsistent at times. Therefore, with his fantasy value at it’s peak right now, managers should shop the big man and be looking to sell-high because if his game starts to fall off, his value will quickly do the same.
Bol Bol had 24 points (10-15 FG, 3-6 3P, 1-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and a steal across 39 minutes of Monday’s loss to the Nets.
Since being given a more significant role in the rotation and being moved into the starting lineup, Bol has been nothing short of impressive. Fantasy managers got more of the same production on Monday night. The 7’ phenom's ability to protect the rim with his shot-blocking and shoot a high percentage from the floor has earned him a top-50 spot in category leagues.
