Stephen Graham has been waived by the Nets.
Graham's contract would have become guaranteed if he were on the roster for New Jersey's season opener, so this saves some money for the team. With the signing of DeShawn Stevenson, it didn't make a lot of sense to keep Graham around. Thu, Dec 22, 2011 09:55:00 AM

The Nets have extended the deadline for deciding whether to guarantee Stephen Graham's contract for next season.

The Nets now have until the day before the start of the season. That will give them a chance to see the new CBA rules and take a look at Graham in camp. They can keep the rugged Graham for $1.1 million.

Stephen Graham started for injured Damion James (foot) on Monday, and was held scoreless on five shot attempts with one rebound, four assists, and a steal in 23 minutes.

If he continues to start, expect more of nights like these. Needless to say, he has no chance at fantasy value this season.

Stephen Graham had 16 points and seven rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting, while Travis Outlaw scored 16, hitting just 6-of-17 shots in Friday's loss to the Bulls.

The Nets starting lineup is pretty sad right now, as it's hard to imagine these two starting for many other NBA teams. Outlaw's shot is broken, although he did have a 3-pointer and six rebounds today. Outside of Devin Harris and the underachieving Brook Lopez, it's tough to own anyone playing for Avery Johnson these days.

Coach Avery Johnson said Stephen Graham may not be the one that gets bounced from the starting lineup when Anthony Morrow (hamstring) returns.

Morrow is nowhere near ready, so this isn't a situation Johnson is thinking about too hard right now. Graham and Travis Outlaw will have plenty of time to battle for a starting gig over the next couple weeks. Neither player has done enough for fantasy owners to get excited, even with Morrow out.

The starting five for the Nets was a collective zero on Wednesday against the Hornets. Stephen Graham was coach Avery's choice-of-the-night at shooting guard, scored nine points, Kris Humphries had eight points and six boards, and Travis Outlaw chipped in with nine points.

Wow, Troy Murphy can't crack THIS lineup? Most college teams could beat these guys, and you know the UConn ladies would make them another notch on their belt. None of these guys are worth owning, although Humphries can occasionally get boards and blocks. This team is doing everything it can for positioning in the Carmelo Anothony sweepstakes, but until then, it is a fantasy nightmare.

Stephen Graham started at shooting guard Sunday and had 10 points and seven rebounds in a win over the Hawks.

We still can't believe he's starting, but he seems to be Avery Johnson's flavor of the week, as Jordan Farmar has fallen out of favor. But once Anthony Morrow comes back, the job will be his.

Stephen Graham started at shooting guard for the Nets on Tuesday, scoring six points on 3-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, no assists, and three steals in 33 minutes.

Those are some horrible per-minute numbers, and when Anthony Morrow returns he'll be rendered pretty much useless. Feel free to ignore him until he shows us something.

The Nets have signed G/F Stephen Graham to a two-year deal.

Graham joins a crowded wing rotation in New Jersey, so his minutes are likely to be sparse early, leaving him as waiver wire fodder in most fantasy leagues.
Wed, Sep 15, 2010 02:18:00 PM

Free agent swingman Stephen Graham is drawing interest from the Bobcats, Heat, Grizzlies, and Clippers.

Graham is an affordable rotation player who can fill either wing position and plays hard-nosed defense.

Stephen Graham tied a career high with 19 points in another start for Gerald Wallace as the Bobcats pulled off a come-back win over the Thunder.

He also had five boards and a 3-pointer, but Gerald Wallace sounds likely to return for Friday's game, which should send Graham back into obscurity.

Stephen Graham scored a career-high 19 points in a fill-in start for the Bobcats on Tuesday, making 8-of-10 FGs with one 3-pointer and eight rebounds in 32 minutes.

Gerald Wallace (ankle) doesn't seem likely to play on Wednesday either, giving Graham another shot at fantasy glory. But considering this was his career-high, and he rarely hits 3s or gets steals, he's still a shaky option.
Tue, Mar 16, 2010 09:38:00 PM

Stephen Graham drew the start for injured Gerald Wallace (ankle) on Sunday, and finished with 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and no assists in 30 minutes.

He has averaged approximately six points and three rebounds in the five games he started this year prior to tonight's contest, and we don't see him being worth a spot start unless you're in a ridiculously deep league.
Sun, Mar 14, 2010 10:29:00 PM

Stephen Graham started for injured Gerald Wallace (headaches) on Sunday, but totaled just two points, two rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 16 minutes of run.

Graham rarely sees more than 10 minutes per game, and until he strings together a week of games that can both stay on the court and produce, owners should not waste their time with him even if he's starting.
Sun, Dec 20, 2009 10:37:00 PM

Stephen Graham, who is starting at small forward for the Bobcats in the absence of Raja Bell (wrist) had 14 points and a 3-pointer on 6-of-9 shooting Friday.

Bell is hoping to play on Monday, meaning there's almost no reason to consider Graham in fantasy leagues.
