Patrick Beverley was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Monday.
Beverley received the second most first team votes of any player named to the All-Defensive Second Team with 44 behind LeBron James' 54 first team votes. While most of us can care less who makes the second team of anything Beverley is an exception in part because it's a nice story in that he became just the second player to come up through the Developmental League and win All-Defensive honors (Avery Bradley of the Celtics was the other) and because Beverley is a good defender he should continue to see an increase in playing time again next season making him worth targeting in the mid- to late rounds come fantasy draft day.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
