Updating a previous item, Luther Head has decided to "unexpectedly" opt out of his contract in Israel.

Head will return to the open market but has no realistic chance of returning to the NBA at this time.

Luther Head, a six-year NBA veteran, has agreed to a one-year deal with Hapoel Holon in Israel.

Head was reportedly pursued by a handful of teams from China, but "after consulting his close friend [Pistons guard] Will Bynum" he turned down offers worth as much as $500,000 to play in Israel for less money.

Hapoel Jerusalem are reportedly interested in signing former Rockets guard Luther Head.

Head, a six-year NBA veteran, signed with a team in China during the lockout but had the deal nullified due to injury. There's no evidence that he's drawing interest in the NBA, so don't be surprised if he accepts a deal overseas, whether in Jerusalem or elsewhere.

Luther Head has signed a contract to play in the NBDL.

Head is another veteran looking for a comeback to the NBA and will attempt to use the D-League as a springboard to do so.

Luther Head has signed with Jiangsu in China.

Head was waived by the Kings toward the end of March. As a fringe NBA player, he should fare much better overseas.

The Kings have waived guard Luther Head.

Head's role was bound to evaporate once Tyreke Evans returns anyway, and his loss shouldn't impact any fantasy rosters. Head isn't a pure PG or SG, making him a career NBA role player.

Luther Head played just 17 seconds Wednesday before leaving with calf tightness.

He has no fantasy value when healthy, especially with Tyreke Evans coming back in the next 10 days.

Luther Head started in place of Beno Udrih (flu) on Wednesday, but hit just 2-of-10 shots for eight points, seven rebounds and four assists in a tough loss to the Magic.

Head has no fantasy value, as Udrih should be back for the next one.

Luther Head (knee) returned to action and started for injured Tyreke Evans (foot) on Tuesday, scoring no points on 0-for-5 shooting with three rebounds and one assist before being yanked after five minutes.

If this doesn't sum up Head's fantasy value, we don't know what does. Even if he were guaranteed 48 minutes per game, he wouldn't be worth adding in standard leagues.

Luther Head will start Tuesday's game against the Thunder in place of injured/resting Tyreke Evans (foot).

He doesn't produce even when he gets significant minutes, but if you're in a deep league looking for a spot-start he's worth a look. The better beneficiary tonight will be Beno Udrih.
Tue, Feb 15, 2011 08:14:00 PM

Luther Head suffered a knee injury on Saturday and won't return to the game.

He doesn't have fantasy value anyway, but could if Tyreke Evans ever goes down.
Sat, Feb 12, 2011 11:18:00 PM

Luther Head started for injured Tyreke Evans (ankle) on Tuesday, and scored four points on 2-of-7 shooting with one rebound and three assists in 12 minutes.

No surprises here, folks. He is to be ignored even if he draws another spot start and gets guaranteed 30 minutes for that game.

Luther Head will start at shooting guard in place of Tyreke Evans (foot) Tuesday.

Interesting. Coach Paul Westphal is going very small in the backcourt with both Beno Udrih and Head. It's a disappointing revelation for owners that grabbed Francisco Garcia. Still, we suspect Garcia will get plenty of burn off the bench and as the guy with the much better fantasy game, we'd rather own him. Head averaged just 8.1 points, 2.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in eight starts earlier this year.

Luther Head failed to score in just 15 minutes on Friday.

Beno Udrih came off the bench for four points and one assist in 30 minutes, but could be on his way back into the starting lineup. Paul Westphal said the starting lineup wasn’t working, so Udrih is a likely candidate to go back into the starting five. Pick him up if you’ve got room.
