Rumors

This would be an incredible steal for the Spurs if they can somehow convince Chris Paul to leave the Clippers and sign with Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. However, the Clippers can offer Paul a max deal at over $200 million. Paul is one of the top free agents this summer and it seems he could leave L.A. In San Antonio, Tony Parker could hang it up leaving a void at point guard. (Source: Marc Stein on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Paul's fantasy value is unlikely to change much with a new team as he's one of the top assists leaders year in and year out. It would be a huge boost for the Spurs and would give the Warriors a strong shot in the Western Conference Finals next season.


Nick Collison hopes to return to the Thunder next season for his 14th NBA season with the same organization. Collison is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent and could return as a veteran presence next season. (Source: Norman Transcript)

Fantasy Impact: Collison's fantasy output was non-existent this past season as he played in only 20 games all season. Even if he returns to OKC, he should be undrafted in re-draft leagues.


P.J. Tucker is drawing interest from the Minnesota Wolves as a potential addition to the young team this off-season. Tucker is an unrestricted free agent and the Raptors have both Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka joining Tucker as free agents. With that said, it's likely Tucker is playing for a different team next season. (Source: ESPN.com)

Fantasy Impact: Tucker is a solid veteran role player who can knock down the three while playing tough defense. It makes sense for the Wolves to add him as those are two key areas of emphasis for the team to address this off-season. Tucker is still someone who will go undrafted in re-draft leagues.


Gordon Hayward is high on the Celtics list of free agents this coming off-season. Even though the team is trying to beat the Cavaliers, there's a lot of free agent and draft buzz around the Celtics. Hayward isn't guaranteed to return to Utah so this is a free agent to watch. (Source: NESN.com)

Fantasy Impact: Hayward is one of the top free agents this summer and a return to Utah is a great option for him in terms of a max deal and fantasy. Hayward will be even more valuable if George Hill walks in free agency. However, a move to Boston would likely take a hit to his potential and also take away from Jae Crowder.


Jrue Holiday is drawing significant interest from the Mavericks and Mark Cuban. First off, everyone seems to be interested in Holiday this off-season including the Knicks and Pelicans. Teams could even more interested like the Jazz if George Hills walks in free agency. Holiday is just 26 years old and will easily fetch a max deal. (Source: ESPN.com)

Fantasy Impact: Holiday took a dip in fantasy production once DeMarcus Cousins joined the team. Anthony Davis and Cousins will handle most of the offense leaving little left for Holiday and Solomon Hill. Holiday would do well to land with another team for fantasy owners but in terms of money, the Pelicans can offer the most.


J.J. Redick has a strong possibility of landing with the 76ers this summer. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin looking at max deals, the Clippers will likely have to let Redick walk as he could fetch $18 million per year with the salary cap increase. The Knicks and Nets are also expected to be in on Redick's services. (Source: The Vertical)

Fantasy Impact: Redick is a solid late round pick for teams in need of three-pointers. A move to another team could be beneficial for him as he's the third or fourth option on the Clippers. Keep an eye on his landing spot for another update.


George Hill hopes to return to the Jazz next season as he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Hill is looking at a deal in the $130 million range for four years so his location is unknown for next season. Gordon Hayward is a free agent so he's top priority for the team. Hill could return to San Antonio perhaps if Tony Parker retires. (Source: Deseret News)

Fantasy Impact: Hill was really good when healthy which was the major problem this season for Hill. Hill played only 49 games while averaging a career-high 16.9 points per game this season. A new location could curb his fantasy upside so a wait-and-see approach for re-draft owners is wise. If Hill didn't return to Utah, the Jazz would have Shelvin Mack starting again at point guard.


Kyle Lowry confirmed that he will opt of his contract and become a free agent this summer. His player option was worth only $12 million and he could likely get a $200 million contract on the open market if he stays with Toronto. Let the bidding war begin for Lowry as he will be one of the top free agents this summer. (Source: Marc Stein on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lowry could be wearing a new uniform next season and his destination is unknown and his fantasy value is unlikely to be affected. If Lowry leaves, DeMar DeRozen and Cory Joseph get a huge boost next season. Stay tuned.


Vince Carter said he wants to play two more seasons in the NBA. Carter is now 40 years old and has played the past 18 seasons. Two more seasons would give him 20 to add to already illustrious career. Carter is a free agent this summer so a return to Memphis is possible but not guaranteed. (Source: Real GM)

Fantasy Impact: Carter was a solid fill-in for Chandler Parsons this past season averaging 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples in 73 games. Parsons health has been a major concern so the Grizzlies need someone who can score and log heavy minutes off the bench.
