Jazz F Marvin Williams needs surgery on his right heel and will be out six months.

Williams has a tear in his Achilles' tendon and will go under the knife Monday. It's unclear if it's a full or partial tear. Regardless, he won't be back until January at the earliest and can't be counted on to be at 100 percent at all next season. The Jazz will be forced to eat the $7.5 million player option Williams is now almost certain to pick up.

The Sacramento Kings have taken Marvin Bagley with the second overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft.

The Duke freshman has the potential to be a 20-10 guy in the NBA after posting averages of 21.0 points, 11.1 boards, 1.5 dimes, 0.8 steals and 0.9 blocks. Bagley runs the floor as well as any big man and he made 39.7% from deep last year, so he certainly fits the 2018 style. The Kings claim they had Bagley as the top player on their board and would have taken him with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Suns selected DeAndre Ayton with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The Suns have been expected to draft the University of Arizona product for weeks now and the seven-footer didn’t work out for any other team. The Pac-12 Player of the Year dominated on the offensive end as a freshman with 20.1 points per game with his imposing physical presence, and he could add to his range as a pick-and-pop guy after making 0.3 treys per contest. The main knock on Ayton has been his defense as he posted somewhat underwhelming 2.3 blocks and 0.7 steals per 40 minutes while having some noteworthy lapses. The Suns have been looking for a big man since Amare Stoudemire and they finally get their man with their first No. 1 pick in franchise history. His ability to run the floor could fit with the team’s new style. Ayton will be fantasy target near 50.

Jaren Jackson Jr. has grown comfortable with the prospect of Memphis drafting him with fourth pick according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

JJJ, Luka Doncic and Mo Bamba have withheld their medical information from the Grizzlies and haven't worked out for the franchise, but JJJ's stance has since changed. He has now provided Grizz officials the requisite personal information and coach J.B. Bickerstaff "played a big role in selling a vision for Jackson's future there." In terms of fantasy, this wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for JJJ because he'd be behind Marc Gasol and they don't have a great reputation of developing young talent.

Harry Giles has "secretly looked great" in workouts this offseason, according to Marc Spears of ESPN.com.

After missing the last season, Giles has reportedly been working out for at least a month. The Duke product was widely considered as the top high school prospect two years ago, but numerous knee ailments caused him to slide to No. 20 last year. Giles makes a ton of sense as a last-round flier in 12-team leagues.

Austin Rivers is opting in on his $12 million contract with Clippers for next season.

Besides some injuries, Rivers had a strong season last year with 15.1 points per game over 33.7 minutes per outing. Rivers is still just 25 years old and should have another chance to get a long-term deal next summer. Rivers is likely going to have more competition for minutes this season with the Clippers fully expected to take a guard at either 12 or 13.

The Lakers have reached out to the Spurs to express interest in Kawhi Leonard, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Earlier today, ESPN reported that the Spurs are willing to listen to offers, but Shams adds that no offers have been discussed between the Spurs and Lakers just yet. The Leonard storyline will be a major issue to keep an eye on during the draft, but the Spurs obviously won't make a hasty decision.

The Wizards are actively exploring their trade options with Marcin Gortat, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Stein adds that the Wizards are resistant to attaching the No. 15 pick tonight to dump Gortat's contract. It's also an expiring deal on Gortat, so it shouldn't be too tough to unload it at some point in the next eight months. The Wizards will likely be in the market for a big man regardless, and chances are Gortat's fantasy value will decrease with a deal.

Dwight Howard and the Nets will negotiate a buyout, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

This comes as a surprise one day after the Nets reportedly acquired Howard in a trade for Timofey Mozgov. If a buyout is reached, Howard will enter free agency next month, but the NBA won't be announcing this trade officially until next month. The former Defensive Player of the Year continues to be passed around the NBA, and it's hard to believe the Nets basically acquired him for his contract. It will be interesting to see what kind of market Howard gets after a very strong year in Charlotte. This news is obviously fantastic news for Jarrett Allen.

The Sixers have traded the 39th pick in the draft to the Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In return, the Sixers get L.A.'s second-round pick in 2019 (via Bulls) and cash. Philly is overloaded with picks, having held Nos. 10, 26, 38, 39, 56 and 60 going into Thursday's draft, and it wouldn't be surprising to see a few more of their picks involved in trades over the next 24 hours.
Jun 20 - 10:11 PM

Dewayne Dedmon has picked up his $7.2 million player option for the 2018-19 season, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania.

Dedmon reached the threshold for his $900k incentives to kick in next season, and may have calculated that he wouldn't get as much annually with a new deal. This also sets him up for a potential long-term contract next summer when he's an unrestricted free agent at age 30. His presence in Atlanta isn't great news for John Collins' fantasy value, but we still expect Collins to take a step forward in his sophomore campaign.

The Cavaliers are not actively shopping Kevin Love heading into Thursday's NBA Draft, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com said earlier this week that the Cavs haven't been given any hints on LeBron James staying or leaving, so obviously that is a mega factor in Love's future. Considering the Cavs traded their 2019 pick to the Hawks with a top-10 protection in the next two years, it sure does make sense to tank it up. If Love does stay in Cleveland for a while, he could be a fantasy force again.
