Ty Lawson looked great in his debut against the Raptors in Game 2, scoring 14 points with eight assists, three rebounds, four triples and one turnover in 31 minutes.
Lawson was a +8 in the 11-point loss, shooting 4-of-10 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line. It was a surprise to see him check in ahead of Tomas Satoransky (three points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes) and the Wizards also deployed him next to John Wall quite a bit. After this strong showing, expect Lawson to remain in the rotation for Game 3. Apr 17 - 9:45 PM

The Wizards have signed Ty Lawson according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

His season in China just ended, so Lawson will be joining the Wizards just in time for the postseason. Washington should be thrilled with the way Tomas Satoransky has played as John Wall's backup, so there's no guarantee that Lawson will be in the rotation.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wizards are "seriously considering" signing Ty Lawson.

The Wizards have been a linked to several PGs including Derrick Rose, Donald Sloan and Briante Weber. It sounds like Tomas Satoransky (head) is probable to play on Wednesday, while Tim Frazier's (nasal fracture) status is up in the air. Lawson could see minutes if he signs with Washington, but Satoransky is still the PG to own in fantasy. The 30-year-old Lawson has spent the season playing overseas in China.

Ty Lawson has reportedly signed a $2.4 million deal with the Shangdon Gold Stars of China.

Lawson had been rumored to be headed to China for the past month now, which makes sense considering every NBA squad at the moment is set at the point guard position. He might be able to latch on with an NBA team once the CBA season concludes, but Lawson's been a non-factor in fantasy hoops for the past two seasons and that trend is unlikely to change.

Updating a previous item, Ty Lawson said he has not signed to play in China.

This is coming straight from Lawson, so sources don't get much more credible than that. Lawson is still a free agent and is coming off a strong year with the Kings as the backup point guard behind Darren Collison. He may eventually wind up in China, but it sounds like it's not a done deal yet.

Ty Lawson has agreed to a deal with the Shanxi Dragons of China.

Lawson had an okay year with the Kings this past season, compiling averages of 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game, but most teams around the league have already filled the point guard position, so the market never really materialized for Lawson. It's not currently clear if his CBA contract will include an NBA-out clause, but he'll definitely be making more money overseas this season than he could in the NBA.

Ty Lawson has fielded calls from multiple teams, including the Timberwolves, Kings, Thunder and Pelicans.

Lawson may have to wait until the remaining top-tier point guards find homes before he inks a new deal. He has had some issues off the floor, but Lawson served as a solid backup last season in Sacramento, where he averaged 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 25.1 minutes.

The Kings and Ty Lawson have "some mutual interest" in a meeting at 12:01 EDT on Saturday morning, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

The Kings had a solid start to their offseason on draft night, so they may be more geared to give their young players more minutes. Still, Lawson exceeded most expectations last year, averaging 9.9 points, 4.4 assists and 0.8 steals in 69 games. Assuming they don't bring Darren Collison back, they'll need to add a veteran point guard to play with De'Aaron Fox.

Ty Lawson (rest) is out for Wednesday night against the Clippers.

His season will end on a high note with a triple-double consisting of 22 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. Lawson was not even a lock to make the roster back in October, but he finished the year with 17.3 points per game on an incredible 68.1 percent from the field in his final six games. Despite a rocky couple of years, Lawson is back on track. For tonight, expect Langston Galloway to get heavy run with Tyreke Evans getting spot PG minutes.

Ty Lawson recorded the first triple-double of his career in a 129-104 win over the Suns on Tuesday, scoring 22 points with 12 assists and 11 rebounds.

In case it's not obvious, the NBA can get a little weird in April. Lawson hit 6-of-10 shots from the field and 9-of-10 from the line in 31 minutes with one steal and one triple, and he took advantage of some extra usage with Darren Collison resting. Lawson has rested in six out of the last 15 games for the Kings, so there's a good chance that he sits out of the season finale against the Clippers on Wednesday.
Wed, Apr 12, 2017 01:16:00 AM

Ty Lawson returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's game with 20 points, 11 assists, two rebounds and one steal, making 7-of-12 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws.

It was Darren Collison's turn to rest tonight, and Lawson took full advantage of the starting gig. He did his damage in just 28 minutes but owners should view tonight's line skeptically -- he was facing the fast-paced Rockets, and is liable to be rested in one of the Kings' final games.
Sun, Apr 9, 2017 09:13:00 PM

Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start Sunday vs. the Rockets.

Lawson and Temple will be returning from rest days, and they'll be replacing Darren Collison (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) in the starting five. Lawson could be forced into heavy minutes tonight, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer.

Ty Lawson (rest) will not play against the Lakers on Friday night.

It's another day off for Lawson, who did not play on Tuesday either. Darren Collison should get some heavy minutes at the one with Langston Galloway backing him up.
Fri, Apr 7, 2017 04:40:00 PM

Ty Lawson and Darren Collison are both resting vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

The tank rolls on. Arron Afflalo (back), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (hip) are also out, so the Kings are going to be very short-handed tonight. Garrett Temple, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway will likely run the offense tonight, but most fantasy owners will want to ignore anyone not named Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein.
Tue, Apr 4, 2017 08:37:00 PM

Ty Lawson scored 21 points with 11 assists in Saturday's win over the Wolves.

Apparently the maintenance day on Friday worked for Lawson, as he was a team-high +18 in the win. He hit 5-of-8 field goals and 11-of-14 from the line, adding two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes. As good as he was in this one, Lawson is a candidate to rest on any given night.
