2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires
Nikola Pekovic Headshot

Nikola Pekovic will miss the entire 2016-'17 season due to a reoccurring ankle injury.

Word of this came out over the weekend when AP's Jon Krawcynski reported that he was "doubtful" to play again in the NBA. Pek has been bothered by a cranky ankle for quite some time now and always seems to be dealing with some sort of injury. Insurance will cover the Wolves' contract with Pekovic, although they may reach a buyout agreement as he has one year and about $12 million left on his deal. At 30 years old, and having only played 43 combined games over the last two seasons, it'd be surprising if Pekovich resurfaced in the NBA.

Quinn Cook Headshot

Update: Pelicans have officially signed Quinn Cook to a contract.

Cook will have no fantasy value and will likely head to the D-League. The former Duke product averaged almost 20 points per game last season in the D-League and he should earn some regular season minutes with the Pelicans if he builds off those numbers.

Kaleb Tarczewski Headshot

Thunder will sign Kaleb Tarczewski to a training camp deal on Saturday.

He is probably not in competition for a roster spot with the Thunder, as he has a deal in place to play for the Oklahoma D-League team, the Oklahoma City Blue. He played this summer with the Wizard's summer league team, averaging 3.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in 22.0 minutes per game in three contests.

Quinn Cook Headshot

Pelicans are expected to sign Quinn Cook to a contract on Saturday.

The former D-League Rookie of the Year apparently will move on from the Cavaliers. He was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Duke, but has not seen any regular season NBA action in his career.

Chris Paul Headshot

Doc Rivers is behind his players if they decide to conduct protests.

It is good for the players to know their coach has their back. Rivers also serves as president of basketball operations for the Clippers, so his support carries even more weight than just that of the leader on the sidelines.

Keith Benson Headshot

Keith Benson signed a training camp contract with the Heat.

After being a 2016 D-League All-star last season, Keith Benson will look to get a chance at making the team out of training camp. After playing professionally in sixth other counties, it'd be a great story if he ends up making the Heats' roster.

Malik Beasley Headshot

Malik Beasley continues to recover from a stress fracture in his right leg. He will be restricted early in training camp.

As the Nuggets first round pick in the draft, they're likely to be extremely safe with their hopeful superstar guard of the future. With Jamal Murray and Gary Harris listed ahead of him on the depth chart, it's very likely he won't be playing much this coming season anyway.

Darrell Arthur Headshot

Darrell Arthur is still recovering from surgery on one of his knees. He will be limited at the start of camp.

No surprise as the Nuggets aren't risking anything with their three year/twenty three million dollar man. The Nuggets already have said they're going to ease him into basketball activities, as they do expect him to be ready by seasons start.

Eric Dawson Headshot

Eric Dawson signed a training camp deal with the Jazz.

Why Eric Dawson may currently not help your fantasy basketball team, he could certainly help the Utah Jazz. The 6-foot-9 and 255 pound forward has recently enjoyed success as he averaged 18.2 points, 15.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.3 steals, and 2.2 blocks per game while playing in the Philippines last season. He'll be given a chance to compete for a roster spot during training camp.

Jrue Holiday Headshot

Pelicans announce that Jrue Holiday will be out indefinitely to start the season while he cares for his ill wife.

All our best to Holiday and his wife. His wife is due to give birth in mid-October and then deal with her brain tumor. Do not expect him to be available anytime soon.
