Fantasy Impact: Highsmith was of interest to numerous teams, but ended up remaining with the Heat after his best season as a pro. The 27-year-old played in 66 games with the Heat in the 2023-2024 season, starting 26.

Harrison Barnes has been traded to the Spurs in a three-team deal that sends DeMar DeRozan to the Kings and Chris Duarte to the Bulls. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on X)

Fantasy Impact: With the sign-and-trade deal, Barnes leaves the Kings after five and a half seasons. Barnes was an integral role player for the Kings in the 2023-2024 season, and he will provide a much needed veteran presence on the young Spurs team. Barnes will likely step into the starting lineup and remain a three-point threat with his new team.

Franz Wagner has signed a five-year, $224 million contract extension with the Orlando Magic, a deal that could be worth up to $269 million. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on X)

Fantasy Impact: Wagner averaged a career-best in points, rebounds, and assists in his third year as a pro, making an extension a no-brainer. Wagner, along with star Paolo Banchero, led the Magic to their best record since 2010-2011. The 22-year-old German will continue to spearhead the Magic's aspirations as a title contender along with the aforementioned Banchero.
