Archie Goodwin Headshot

Phoenix guard Archie Goodwin has been released and will become a free agent.

As what many thought as trade bait for the Suns, isn't trade bait anymore. With the packed back-court the Suns have then it was going to be very hard for them to give him any playing time. Archie Goodwin is good enough to get signed by another NBA team that needs back-court help during the course of this season.

Anthony Barber Headshot

Anthony Barber has been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The right cards weren't on the right table for Anthony Barber as the 76'ers have choose to not give him for the final roster spot. Barber had a good training camp but his injury problems and being the fourth point-guard deep on their depth chart didn't help him at all. Look for Barber to sign onto another NBA team that needs more point-guard depth.

Rodney Hood Headshot

Jazz have exercised fourth-year team option on Rodney Hood.

Just like Lyles and Exum, Rodney Hood will also be given the same offer and an attempt to have full control of their young core. Hood is listed as their starting shooting-guard on the depth chart but has been seeing time at small-forward with the absence of Gordon Haywards' fractured finger. Look for Hood to be a solid late round draft pick in fantasy drafts as his ability to play multiple positions and play a lot of minutes are huge.

Dante Exum Headshot

Jazz have exercised fourth-year team option on Dante Exum.

Another move the Jazz are trying to make in locking up the young core of their team. Dante Exum is primary the back-up point-guard to George Hill to start the season but at only 21 years old, the sky is the limit for Exum in the future.

Trey Lyles Headshot

Jazz have exercised third-year team option for Trey Lyles.

After an impressive training camp where Trey Lyles showed huge improvement on the defensive end of the ball, it's looking like that it's paying off for Lyles and the Jazz. As the back-up at the PF position and only behind Derrick Favors, Lyles could be in for a solid year on the court and on your fantasy team if Favors ends up missing anytime this season.

Brandon Paul Headshot

Brandon Paul has been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers roster is improving and he was too far down on the depth chart to make the final roster. He might be able to join a D-League squad but is far from being relevant in fantasy.

Kaleb Tarczewski Headshot

Kaleb Tarczewski has been waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Tarczewski signed a training camp deal with OKC a month ago but was not able to secure a roster spot. It was an uphill battle but the former Arizona Wildcat will look to join on elsewhere.

J.J. Barea Headshot

Head coach Rick Carlisle says J.J. Barea (left elbow sprain) is likely to play Wednesday.

Barea is expected to see a moderate amount of playing time but it will make him far from impactful for fantasy. He's a more valuable real life player than fantasy player.

Dionte Christmas Headshot

Dionte Christmas signed with the 76ers on Monday.

Christmas is fresh off a year playing in Israel and will get a shot with the 76ers. He'll likely end up with Philadelphia's D-league team making him not relevant in the fantasy community.

P.J. Hairston Headshot

Rockets to waive P.J. Hairston.

This was a long shot from the start for Hairston to make the final 15 man roster in Houston. He didn't help himself by not making any kind of impression in training camp or the preseason. He'll likely end up overseas or in the D-league this season.
