Well, that is nothing more than what the 76ers would like to hear from the first overall pick in this year's draft. Simmons should play a predominant role for the team the first time he sets foot on the court.
With the Warriors now having a ton of cap space wrapped up in a handful of superstar assets, they will have to get creative with filling out their roster for the 2016-17 season McGee certainly fits that description. The athletic 7'0" played in 34 games (two starts) for the Mavericks last season, averaging 5.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks while seeing just under 11 minutes per contest.
Vasquez's 2015-16 season was brought to an early end in December due to surgery that removed a bone spur from his ankle. He is going to miss a chance to play for Venezuela in the Olympics this summer, but is expected to be ready to go for the Nets by preseason in October.
The trial against Rose is set to begin on October 4th, so it could obviously have an impact on the veteran point guard's ability to mesh with his new teammates during the preseason. There is still a chance of Rose actually settling this case out of court before the trial begins.
While no announcement has been made of the veteran's intentions, it only makes sense the retire a Celtic. The career 20.0 ppg scorer was one of the greats of his generation, and brought a title to Boston. If he does lace them up next year, it will be in a reserve role, and he will have little impact on fantasy teams.
Whether or not this report is true, Durant and the Warriors figure to be the villains of the NBA going into 2016-'17. It remains to be seen if adding one of the NBA's best players to a team that won 73 games last season will make them better. From a fantasy standpoint, the addition would figure to hurt the value of Curry, Durant, Green and Thompson in a negative way, since there is only one basketball on the court at a time. The real winners of this move in fantasy figure to be Westbrook and Victor Oladipo as Durant left them as the top two options in OKC.
Dinwiddie has had a crazy few months following his trade to the Bulls in mid-June. Chicago then waived him early in July but now have an open roster spot and have decided to bring him back on board. Dinwiddie's main role will be to function as depth for the back court with Rajon Rondo, Dwayne Wade, Jimmy Butler, and Jerian Grant already in the rotation.
Lee is a depth signing for the already retooled Spurs but is certainly a nice piece to have coming off the bench. The two-year pact is for $3.2 million which is pretty tame in this free agent market. He won't be a factor in fantasy leagues this year as LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol will get the bulk of the minutes in the front court rotation.
