Nets waive G/F Chase Budinger.

Budinger averaged 3.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 10.4 minutes per game during the preseason, but will now become an unrestricted free agent. While he may hook on with another team, Budinger can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Chase Budinger has reportedly reached an agreement on a deal with the Nets.

With the continued development of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Bojan Bogdanovic being a priority for the Nets, Budinger isn't going to get on the court enough to matter in any league.

The Celtics are interested in Chase Budinger, according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News.

The Celtics are still looking for a shooter, so their interest in Budinger would seem to make some sense. The 28-year-old wouldn't be looking at a big role with the Celtics and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues no matter where he signs.

Chase Budinger was present during the Suns practice on Tuesday.

Budinger should be active for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of role he can earn in Phoenix. This is a wait-and-see situation in nearly all leagues.

Chase Budinger is set to sign with the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

Budinger cleared waivers on Monday and is already in Phoenix to sign a deal for the rest of the season with the Suns. The University of Arizona alum will help provide the Suns with small forward depth, but can stay on waivers as he's unlikely to provide enough fantasy value to be worth a pickup in standard leagues.

Chase Budinger is planning to sign with the Suns.

This one made a lot of sense with the Suns waiving Sonny Weems. Budinger went to University of Arizona and the Suns have some major depth concerns at small forward. He can stay on the wire in most leagues unless you have dead weight.

The Pacers waived Chase Budinger on Saturday.

A buyout has been in the works for a while now so this isn't a surprise. Budinger is rumored to be heading to Phoenix, and it's possible that he could actually carve out a sizable role since they lack depth at the small forward position. If you're in a deeper league and he lands in Phoenix, put him on your radar.

The Pacers are reportedly set to buyout Chase Budinger on Friday.

This move will be made in order to make room for Ty Lawson on the roster, and the Suns have reportedly emerged as the leading candidate to sign Budinger once the buyout is complete. Budinger could actually work his way into the rotation in Phoenix, but it's unlikely he can establish himself as a standard league asset with the Suns. This is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues.

The Pacers are reportedly shopping Chase Budinger.

He's not a difference maker for the Pacers, and he'd have to land on a really bad team for his non-factor status in standard leagues to change. Leave him on the wire.

Chase Budinger posted four points, four rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Bud soaked up extra minutes with Rodney Stuckey out of commission, but isn't worth owners' attention in standard leagues -- he already has four DNP-CDs in January.

Chase Budinger played 22 minutes with no points, five boards and one block against the Heat on Monday.

He is probably going to benefit if C.J. Miles (shoulder) needs to miss time. That said, Budinger just hasn't played well enough to be added in most leagues.
Tue, Jan 5, 2016 01:43:00 AM

Chase Budinger played 18 minutes and had 12 points, seven rebounds and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

Bud had just two points in his previous game, 10 before that and didn't even score in the game prior to that one. If you're in a very deep league with virtually nothing available on waivers, just keep an eye on him in case he starts logging 25 minutes a game.

Chase Budinger scored 10 points with three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He basically slid into Monta Ellis' (shoulder) playing time in the second half and bumped C.J. Miles to shooting guard. Budinger can fill it up from deep when he's hot, so he might be worth a speculative add for short-term value in deep leagues.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 01:32:00 AM

Chase Budinger will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, with George Hill (illness) returning to the starting lineup following a three-game absence.

Budinger is averaging just 5.3 points and 2.3 boards on 41.7 percent shooting as a reserve this season, so his value will take a pretty massive hit with the return to the second-unit. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
