Regardless of whether or not he starts, Clarkson is going to get his fair share of minutes. The guard averaged 15.5 points per game last season, but fantasy owners need to understand he doesn't do much outside of the points department. He's still a reliable fantasy asset, so don't look too much into the label of starter or sixth man.
Last season, Len averaged nine points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Len and Tyson Chandler should serve as a formidable duo in the paint for the Phoenix Suns. His production in the points department may be limited, but if all goes well, he'll average close to 10 rebounds per game this season.
Young is a more than adequate from long range and he will get the luxury of playing with the starting unit in the season opener. Jordan Clarkson is still the more valuable fantasy asset, but we can't ignore the fact that Young is the one getting the nod in the starting five.
The big man is a solid veteran center, but the fact remains that he just can't stay healthy. He still has the ability to rack up double-doubles often, but his aging body just doesn't hang up most of the season. He's a middle-of-the-road option at the position.
Teletovic opened the game as the starter, but it wasn't planned for him to be in the role for long. However, many probably expected it would be more than just one half. His fantasy value is very limited and he will likely continue to start off and on until Tony Snell returns to a full workload.
Lopez no longer fits the run and gun identity that the rebuilding Nets are looking to implement. In the first half he looked out of place shooting threes and performing runners off the dribble 15-feet out. He will likely be traded at sooner rather than later, so they are trying to see what they have in backup center Justin Hamilton.
The belief is that McRoberts is just on a day-to-day basis going forward, so feel free to draft him in your season long leagues. As for Wednesday, Luke Babbitt is going to start at the four for at least the beginning of the season, so McRoberts may kickoff 2016-17 as a role player off the bench for health purposes.
We all remember Hunter and his coach/father from this past spring's March Madness. He is a combo guard with some nice size and can fill up the bucket if needed. He will fill a bench role with Chicago.

The Raptors love his skill-set off the bench and his ability to lead this strong second unit, so rather than breaking that up, they will instead start rookie Pascal Siakam at the four.
