Fantasy Impact: One of the hottest names in free agency, Tucker inked a three-year deal with the 76ers who remained the hottest name in the race for him all offseason. Concerns about Embiid's ability to stay on the floor and James Harden's regression from his 2021 self have drawn the 76ers to Tucker, who flashed brilliance from behind the arc in 2022. During his time with the Heat last season, the veteran 7.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 71 games. He will likely slot into the starting lineup at the PF position alongside Embiid.

Fantasy Impact: Oladipo seems set to leave the Miami Heat this offseason as he looks to build his value on a short-term contract likely hoping to earn a bigger deal over the next year or so. The Heat guard was looking to do the same thing when he joined the Miami Heat before he was unable to play the majority of the 2022 season. For now managers should temper their expectations with the 30 year old as he is no longer the All-Star he was when he played with the Indiana Pacers and certainly looks to be out of his prime though he may surprise.

Duncan Robinson recorded 21 points (7-11 FG, 7-11 3PT), one rebound, two assists, and one steal in 27 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's blowout win versus the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson's fantasy value remains fully tied to his success from behind the arc. The Michigan product's minutes fluctuate too much for managers to consistency trust his output. Robinson will continue to be a risky play as he does not contribute nearly enough in any other category besides three pointers. The 27-year-old will look to stay hot from deep when the Heat host their final regular-season home game against the Hawks on Friday.
