  • WAS Small Forward #9
    Earlier this summer, there were rumors that Avdija had been dealing with a hip injury. While Unseld neither confirmed nor denied that during his media availability, he did say that the versatile forward is set to be a full participant when training camp opens on Tuesday. And that’s good news for the Wizards and fantasy managers, especially with the franchise set to embark on a rebuild. Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis were both traded during the offseason. And while the focus of many has been on Kyle Kuzma and Jordan Poole, Avdija has room to be a player of greater fantasy value as well. Barely a top 200 player last season, Avdija is worth using a late-round pick on in standard leagues.
  • ORL Power Forward #9
    Wilson, who has played for three different NBA teams since being selected by the Bucks in the first round of the 2017 draft, finished last season with Orlando’s G League affiliate. After playing well for the Magic in Summer League action, he’s earned himself a training camp invitation. Given the number of frontcourt players on the Magic roster heading into camp, this transaction was likely completed with the Osceola Magic roster in mind.
  • LAL Power Forward #3
    It’s always good news that a roster is fully healthy heading into training camp, especially when Anthony Davis and LeBron James are among those marquee players. Neither Lakers star has appeared in at least 60 regular season games since the 2019-20 season, and that was one interrupted for more than four months by the coronavirus pandemic. On paper, the Lakers will be deeper than they were last season due to the work done by Rob Pelinka in free agency. But if this team is to be a title contender, they’re going to need Davis and James to avoid any major injuries. Davis should again provide 1st-round fantasy value, while James is in that 2nd-to-3rd round range in most leagues.
  • LAL Point Guard #0
    There shouldn’t have been a question regarding Russell’s place within the rotation, especially after the Lakers re-signed him to a two-year deal in July. Russell didn’t play well in the Western Conference Finals, leading to some openly questioning if he would move to the bench. Ham made it clear that D’Lo remains his starting point guard, likely providing a confidence boost with the proclamation, especially with Gabe Vincent being signed in free agency. While he was a top 75 player in 9-cat per-game value for the entire season, Russell ranked outside the top 150 after the February trade deadline. There should be a greater level of comfort in playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis than there was after he was traded, so look for Russell to provide greater fantasy value in 2023-24.
  • IND Center #20
    The Pacers were busy on Thursday as they continued final training camp preparations. Bell, who played in China last season, will have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot. However, with 17 players already under contract for the upcoming season, it’s more likely that this move was made with the team’s G League affiliate in mind. In addition to signing Bell, the Pacers waived Craig Sword and Pedro Bradshaw. With both being on Exhibit 10 contracts, those moves were made to secure the players’ G League rights.
  • NOP Point Guard #15
    Alvarado was already considered questionable for camp, but he’ll also miss the start of the preseason. Dyson Daniels and Kira Lewis Jr. should see more point guard opportunities to start camp. Nance’s absence should result in Cody Zeller seeing the backup center minutes and Naji Marshall being the backup power forward.
  • PHX Small Forward #6
    Nothing is official yet, but the Suns are expected to move on from both players after acquiring Jusuf Nurkic, Nassir Little, Grayson Allen and Johnson in the Damian Lillard trade. Phoenix has worked hard to add depth this summer, which gives them the flexibility to move on from these guys. Johnson hasn’t done much since the Clippers selected him with the 21st pick in 2021, but he has loads of potential and athleticism. He should be able to find a new team to play for.
  • MIN Shooting Guard #6
    The Wolves re-signed NAW to a two-year deal this summer, and it appears that the team believes that’s a bargain for them. He played a minimal role for them last season and hasn’t really panned out since the Pelicans selected him in 2019. He isn’t worth drafting in standard leagues, but if they really believe in him to this level, he’s worth keeping an eye on.
  • GSW Power Forward #32
    Kerr was very complimentary of TJD, who slipped to the Warriors at pick No. 57 in the draft. Not many second round players are able to carve out roles on contenders in year one, but Jackson-Davis was excellent through four years at Indiana. He should be capable of filling a role for them, even if it isn’t large enough for him to make a fantasy impact for most of his first year in the NBA.
  • POR Power Forward #9
    Grant isn’t eligible to be traded until January 15th, but that gives Portland about a month to move him before the trade deadline in February. Grant should start the season as the primary scoring option in Portland, which should lead to real fantasy success. However, if he ends up dealt to a contender, his production would likely drop significantly. They signed him to a massive five-year, $160 million deal, so we’ll have to see what contenders could be interested in bringing in that lengthy contract.
