KEY 2017-18 Fantasy Basketball - Seasonal Rankings

Use these rankings to decide who to draft and where to draft them. FA rankings are based on a players short term and long term value with upside and injury risk factored in. Use these with confidence during your draft and throughout the season.

AUCTION VALUES: These values are for leagues with a $200 auction budget. If you want a player, pay up for him. Numbers should be used as a guideline. Feel out the auction and look to nominate players you don’t want when major spending sprees are happening. Always pay up for the players you want. Before spending that extra dollar, look at depth charts to get starters.

Milos Teodosic Headshot

Teodosic will not be waived by the Clippers, making his contract for the 2018-19 season full guaranteed, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Teodosic opted into the final year of his contract back in June, but Sunday served as the deadline for the Clippers to waive him without penalty. The point guard now will have the $6.3 million option he elected to take fully guaranteed as a result. He does, however, have more competition for minutes at point guard this season with Patrick Beverley back healthy along with the drafting of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who was very impressive during summer league.

James Michael McAdoo Headshot

McAdoo signed a contract Sunday with Auxilium Pallacanestro Torino of the Italian Serie A, George Efkarpides of reports.

McAdoo, a North Carolina product, will unite with another Tar Heels legend in Italy in former NBA coach Larry Brown, who was named the club's new bench boss in June. The 25-year-old forward spent last season in Philadelphia, logging four appearances at the NBA level and spending the majority of his time with the G League's Delaware 87ers.

John Holland Headshot

Holland registered 23 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), two rebounds, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during the Cavaliers' 82-68 win over the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

The 29-year-old logged his first 24 games of regular-season action in the 2017-18 campaign, averaging just 7.3 minutes. He hadn't been able to do much in Las Vegas to further his case before Sunday, however, as he'd come in averaging just 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal across 25.2 minutes over five games. His team-high scoring total and stellar shooting percentage against the Raptors was, therefore, a pleasant surprise, but it may not be enough to earn Holland a chance to continue proving his worth in training camp. If it isn't, he ultimately could find himself back with the G-League's Canton Charge, where he averaged 18.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals across 34.2 minutes over 23 games. He'll have at least one more chance to make an impression for the time being now that he's helped Cleveland advance to the semifinal round.

Alfonzo McKinnie Headshot

McKinnie contributed 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

The 25-year-old big man's scoring total co-led the first unit, allowing him to finish off his Las Vegas tenure in impressive fashion. McKinnie was serviceable in summer league play, but it remains to be seen if it was enough to garner him a training camp invite. If not, McKinnie could find himself back in the G-League, where he averaged 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 29.9 minutes over 35 games in the 2017-18 campaign.
Yesterday 11:10 pm (EST)
Malachi Richardson Headshot

Richardson finished with 14 points (5-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist across 35 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

Richardson co-led the starting five in scoring with Alfonzo McKinnie while churning out his second 14-point effort in as many days. The 22-year-old seemingly made an airtight case for a training camp invite with his play in Las Vegas, as he was one of the Raptors' most reliable sources of offense during six summer league games.
Yesterday 11:00 pm (EST)
Chris Boucher Headshot

Boucher totaled 18 points (7-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and four blocks across 23 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

The big man's performance was one of his best of summer league play, as he made his final case for a training camp invite. Boucher particularly gave a good account of himself on the defensive end (3.0 blocks per game before Sunday's four-block effort) in Las Vegas, and he could conceivably carve out a role in the Raptors' frontcourt rotation if he's able to stick with the team long enough to show what he can do in preseason.
Yesterday 10:53 pm (EST)
DeMarcus Cousins Headshot

Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers said last week that Cousins (Achilles) will have a rehab appointment in mid-July, which should help established a target timeline for the big man's return to the court, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Myers noted that the Warriors inked Cousins to a one-year deal primarily with the objective of having him at full health for the postseason, but the team intends to turn him loose as soon as doctors give him the green light. Cousins previously suggested that he doesn't expect to be ready to go for training camp, but it remains unclear how much regular-season action he might miss. While Cousins is on the mend, Jordan Bell, Draymond Green and David West are expected to handle most of the early-season minutes at center.
Yesterday 9:46 pm (EST)
Yogi Ferrell Headshot

The Mavericks rescinded Ferrell's $2.92 million qualifying offer Friday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

The play of rookie second-round pick Jalen Brunson in the summer league may have embolded the Mavericks to pull their $2.9 million qualifying offer for Ferrell, who was believed to be leaning toward accepting the deal with few teams expressing interest in him as a restricted free agent. Ferrell should draw more intrigue now that he's available on the open market, but he'll still likely have to settle for a short-term deal. The third-year point guard averaged 10.2 points in 27.8 minutes per game and shot a respectable 37.3 percent from distance a season ago, but his lack of size (six feet, 180 pounds) makes him a liability on defense against longer, bigger guards.
Yesterday 9:31 pm (EST)
Jeff Ayres Headshot

Ayres registered 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 27 minutes during the Lakers' 101-78 win over the Pistons in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

Ayres has quietly put together a strong body of work in Vegas, as he came into Sunday's game averaging 8.0 points (on 77.0 percent shooting) and 5.5 rebounds across 16.5 minutes over four contests. The veteran big man has played overseas for the last two seasons, and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to parlay his efficient summer league efforts into a training camp invite.
Yesterday 7:24 pm (EST)
Xavier Rathan-Mayes Headshot

Rathan-Mayes supplied 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), seven assists and four rebounds across 18 minutes during the Lakers' 101-78 win over the Pistons in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

Rathan-Mayes saw five games of action with the Grizzlies last season after a stellar G-League campaign, and he's filled a fairly steady bench role during summer league action. The 24-year-old was sporting averages of 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 17.5 minutes over four games coming into Sunday's contest, so his numbers against the Pistons will bump all those figures up a notch. Rathan-Mayes will have another opportunity to make a strong impression in Monday's semifinal-round tilt.
