Ty Lawson has reportedly received some calls during free agency, but the teams that have called are not willing to commit much to the unrestricted free agent.
Lawson is just two years removed from averaging 15.2 points, 9.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game, but after two failed stints in Houston and Indiana, and his well documented off-court incidents, his value has taken a major hit. Lawson has said that he's willing to sign a contract for "cheaper" than what he feels he's worth, but with most teams all set up at the point guard position, Lawson is running out of options. If he does nab a deal, he'll more than likely be coming off the bench. Jul 27 - 12:39 PM

Ty Lawson said that he regained some confidence by watching some of his old highlights on YouTube.

"Last [season] was the first time I felt that I wasn’t the confident player," said Lawson. "If I did any wrong thing, I would be scared to shoot it or scared to make a pass. But it’s all confidence. I sat down, looked in the mirror and watched my old YouTube videos and realized I am the same player I am. I just have to be confident shooting the ball and play my regular game." Lawson added that he's been in the gym every day, putting up extra shots, and he's willing to sign a contract for "cheaper" than what he feels he's worth.

Ty Lawson admitted that the 2015-16 NBA season was "tough."

"From not having the ball in my hands to everything that was going down in Houston, it just wasn’t a good fit," he said. "It was tough going from starting and playing well to coming off the bench, then not playing and going through every process that there is in the NBA in one season. Being waived, to going to another team and then having to go out there and get used to everyone so quickly." Lawson, an unrestricted free agent, added that he'd like to play in an uptempo offense, but he really can't afford to be too picky about his next landing spot.

Ty Lawson's season ended on Sunday with just one point, one rebound and one assist in five minutes off the Pacers' bench.

Lawson's decline has been precipitous and he finishes with averages of 5.7 points, 3.6 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 66 regular-season games with the Rockets and Pacers. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but given his struggles on and off the court, he's a long-shot to reclaim a starting job in 2016-17.
May 1 - 11:02 PM

Ty Lawson handed out nine assists on Sunday to go along with seven points, six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes of action.

Frank Vogel recently praised his bench, saying, "This year's bench is going to carry us through stretches. Not just in these closing games but, hopefully, if we clinch a playoff spot, into the playoffs." The bench rewarded his faith tonight, combining for 68 points, a performance that limited all of Indy's starters to 22 minutes or under.

Ty Lawson (illness) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

He is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, but he's fully expected to play despite missing Wednesday's game. With Lawson back in the rotation as the backup PG, Rodney Stuckey will lose a few minutes off the bench and Joe Young likely won't play.
Apr 8 - 10:24 AM

Ty Lawson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Cavs.

He has an upper respiratory illness and was on the injury report this morning. With Lawson out, Rodney Stuckey and Joe Young could pick up a couple extra minutes. Lawson should be able to return on Friday, but isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues anyway.
Apr 6 - 4:02 PM

Ty Lawson (upper respiratory infection) did not go through shootaround and is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

If Lawson can't give it a go tonight, it'll be Rodney Stuckey and Joe Young splitting his minutes, with Stuckey offering the most upside. Lawson has been playing around 20 minutes off the bench in Indiana, so he's not an option in most leagues.
Apr 6 - 11:14 AM

X-rays were negative on Ty Lawson's foot on Thursday.

He's had some problems with his foot and this was just precautionary. Lawson played 20 minutes in his loss with two points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. He has very little fantasy value.
Mar 31 - 9:39 PM

Frank Vogel said that he's considered increasing Ty Lawson's role, but he's hesitant to do so as it would result in someone falling out of the rotation.

Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles figure to take the largest hit if Lawson's role is increased, and it'll be interesting to see if Vogel alters his approach at all for Thursday's game. In Lawson's previous five, he has averaged 15.1 minutes a night to go with 5.8 points, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals. Until his role is increased, Lawson won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 31 - 6:34 PM

Frank Vogel implied that Ty Lawson's minutes will be in the 15 minute range for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

15 minutes isn't enough time for Lawson to produce a meaningful stat line in most settings. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 24 - 6:48 PM

Ty Lawson has been sentenced to one year of probation in relation to a 2015 drunk driving arrest.

Lawson had plead guilty to one count of driving while impaired and will avoid jail time with this ruling. Lawson has already served a suspension for this arrest and won't face any discipline from the league. He's on the fantasy radar after a solid 15 minute stretch on Monday, but fantasy owners will want to see him string together a few good games before scooping him in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 22 - 11:46 AM

Ty Lawson (foot) scored six points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

He was right at his minutes limit and actually looked pretty good in this game. Lawson will need to string together a few games before he becomes a pickup in most leagues.
Mar 21 - 10:50 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to play 10-15 minutes on Monday.

That should mean he's going to back up George Hill at point guard with Hill getting around 33 minutes. Lawson won't have much value even once he's healthy.
Mar 21 - 5:25 PM

Frank Vogel said that he's hopeful to have Ty Lawson (foot) available for Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

Vogel said that he won't impose an official minutes limit upon in his first game back following a five-game absence, which makes sense considering that he wouldn't play much anyway as George Hill's backup. Lawson isn't worth owning in most leagues.
