2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires
Julius Randle Headshot

Julius Randle sustained a laceration in the webbing between his middle and ring fingers in his right, non-shooting hand while practicing Tuesday.

While the cut did take seven stitches to sew up, it is still considered minor and should be healed in a couple of weeks. The slight bad news here is that, while the cut is on his non-shooting hand, he does want to improve the usage of his right hand and this will delay that work from happening. He is slated to be the full-time starter at the four this season and should be able to do well in the well-spaced offense that Luke Walton is likely to install, similar to that of Steve Kerr in Golden State. He should be fine for the start of training camp in about a month from now.

Steve Novak Headshot

Steve Novak (knee) said he is pain-free and will have no restrictions when training camp opens next month.

Novak suffered the knee injury, that required surgery, in February very shortly after signing with the Bucks initially. He is now back to provide some three-point shooting off the bench from a big, but that's really about it. While it's nice that he is indeed pain-free and will have no restrictions, he still won't see a lot of the court once the season opens for Milwaukee.

Joffrey Lauvergne Headshot

Thunder acquire big Joffrey Lauvergne from the Nuggets.

OKC is actively beefing up their frontcourt in order to directly contrast the loaded backcourt and wings of arch-rival Golden State. It's a method used by the Cavs with success in order to force the Warriors to play a more methodical and physical style of basketball.

Travis Wear Headshot

Lakers have signed Travis Wear.

Wear is a combo swingman with the ability to knock down open shots. If he makes the team, he at best will serve as one of the last men off the bench. Expect little from him as a fantasy option.

Chris Bosh Headshot

Chris Bosh (Back) posted a video of him working out on Monday.

In a brief video, the veteran big-man wanted to make it clear that he is back to business. It is still unclear if the Heat will even have him back after missing each of the last two second halves of the season with blood clots, but there is no doubt that his talent is still there. If healthy and cleared, the expectation is that Bosh will be back out there, but Miami's reluctantcy to have him back during their playoff push does leave some reasonable doubt for 2016-17.

Steve Novak Headshot

Bucks have re-signed Steve Novak.

Despite being signed, Novak will be buried on the Bucks depth chart and barely see floor action. He only appeared in 10 games last season and we should put the over/under at 9.5 this year as well.

Keith Appling Headshot

Keith Appling was arrested on Sunday night on a concealed weapons charge and fleeing and eluding officers.

It is never a good situation for the fans, the owner, or the team when this sort of thing happens in professional sports. We will all have to wait and see how this develops as more news comes out. Fantasy wise, we have little here to get up in arms about.

Ty Lawson Headshot

Ty Lawson has officially signed a one-year contract with Sacramento.

Lawson who primarily came off the bench for Houston last season, at times, was able to put together some big games. He is a huge boost for the Sacramento Kings, who finished last season injury plagued, with no depth off the bench. He made impacts in three-out-of-four categories (PTS, REB, and AST) when given proper playing time last season.

John Wall Headshot

John Wall says he is in the best shape of his life this offseason.

Wall was looking a bit rundown the at the end of the last NBA season so it is great news he has this kind of confidence going into the new season. He was an offensive power house in both DFS and seasonal leagues last season and should continue to be so this year.

Ty Lawson Headshot

Kings and Ty Lawson have reportedly agreed to a 1-year deal.

It's a low-risk move for the Kings as they have Darren Collison and Isaiah Cousins in front of him. Lawson was miserable last season averaging 5.7 PPG, 3.6 AST, 1.8 RPG over 21.4 MPG. He's trying to get his career back on the right path.
