As the 45th drafted player in the 2016 NBA draft, he was not guaranteed a roster slot, but apparently showed the team enough in Summer League action to be inked to this deal. The Celtics have made it known they are willing to deal, and Jackson's signing may be an effort to provide depth on the roster to facilitate trades.
That is a troubling trend and should give any of his fantasy owners concern about his availability going into the season. Bell is appealing the suspension, but if this report is accurate, it looks like he will definitely miss some time to start the season. Time to move DeAngelo Williams up your draft lists.
Brees contract does not expire until after 2017, but an extension would provide an opportunity for some salary cap relief for the Saints. There is no animosity between the two sides, and a deal should be worked out sometime soon, although prior to training camp now seems unlikely.
He took part in team activities during OTAs, after undergoing sports hernia surgery in January. He only played in six games last season, and his return to the Saint secondary should help to improve their defensive coverage.
Kang grabs some pine for the third game out of the last six played by the Pirates. David Freese is covering third and hitting fifth on Saturday when the Pirates host the Phillies. Kang has not had a multi-hit game since June 19, and is struggling mightily at the plate.
