Marreese Speights scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, four assist and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.
Blake Griffin (knee) is going to play on Monday, so Speights will go back to his reserve role. Mo Buckets isn't really an add here, but keep this in mind if Griffin needs to miss more time at some point in the future. Dec 11 - 1:24 AM

Marreese Speights struggled in 17 minutes vs. the Pacers, scoring just two points on 1-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal.

Speights racked up 16 points and 12 rebounds vs. Dallas on Wednesday, but that was largely due to the quality of the opponent -- in the two games since he's averaging 2.5 points and 4.5 boards. There's no reason to own Speights in typical leagues.
Nov 27 - 8:41 PM

Marreese Speights double-doubled vs. the Mavs on Wednesday with 16 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 22 minutes.

It's Speights' first double-double with the Clippers and he's proven to be a valuable offseason addition, giving L.A.'s second unit an offensive dimension they've lacked in years past. Despite his excellent real-world fit, he's only worth fantasy owners' attention in 14-team leagues and deeper.
Nov 24 - 12:45 AM

Marreese Speights did his thing in 19 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday, scoring a season-high 16 points with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

Mo' wins for the 12-2 Clippers and Mo Buckets getting, well, mo' buckets. Speights didn't score in double figures in any of his previous five games and his 19 minutes matched his season high. He's a blast to watch when he's on, but his unpredictability factor makes him tough to own.
Nov 20 - 1:52 AM

Marreese Speights had four points, four rebounds and one block in 17 minutes of action on Sunday, finishing 1-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line.

The eight-year veteran had a strong Clippers debut, scoring 15 points with two 3-pointers, but occasional disappearing acts are inevitable. With limited defensive stats and middling rebounds for a big man, Speights is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Oct 30 - 7:19 PM

Marreese Speights played just 16 minutes on Thursday, but hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points and two rebounds in a 114-106 win over the Blazers.

This is reminiscent of some of his lines in Golden State and he is the main back up for DeAndre Jordan. DAJ could get some bench time late in games due to his poor free throw shooting, so Speights may end up having some value. But 16 minutes is not very much run and it will likely take an injury to DAJ for Speights to be worth a look in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 28 - 2:24 AM

Marreese Speights scored 14 points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He was basically the only Clipper who showed up tonight, but it's not a surprise that Speights went off against his friends at Golden State. We love that he added a 3-point shot to his arsenal and he could have some big nights off the bench, but his production will be too volatile to trust in season-long leagues. He's not a great option while the Clippers are healthy.
Oct 5 - 1:34 AM

Marreese Speights has agreed to a deal with the Clippers.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, it's expected to a be one-year deal for the minimum salary. Speights had some nice moments for the Warriors last season, averaging 7.1 points and 3.3 boards in just 11.6 minutes per game. Speights could fill the void left by Cole Aldrich, but he won't be a fantasy asset in Los Angeles while they're at full strength.
Jul 8 - 11:43 AM

Marreese Speights is reportedly willing to re-sign with the Warriors at the veteran's minimum.

Speights may want to continue being a part of the championship culture, but with David West now on the roster, his roll with the Dubs would be non-existent as would his fantasy value.
Jul 7 - 7:27 PM

Marreese Speights said that he'd like to return to the Warriors as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"It's been a hell of a lot of fun," Speights said. "I feel like I put myself in position on this team and in this city to make a name for myself and be one of the core guys who's been here. It would be best to be back here, but I understand it's a business." Speights would likely need to give the Dubs a discount if he wants to come back, and with Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli also set to hit the open market, Speights will be a lower priority for Golden State.
Jun 2 - 4:27 PM

Marreese Speights filled it up in just nine minutes with 14 points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer on Thursday.

In true Mo Buckets fashion, he had a 48.1 usage rate and a 76.1 true shooting percentage. Speights' output off the bench was very helpful while the starters were resting. He won't play a bunch, but he sure can fill it up in minimal playing time.
May 27 - 12:11 AM

If Andrew Bogut (adductor) can't play, coach Steve Kerr thinks Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao would play.

"Of course we could go Draymond at the center, as well," Kerr said. "So we’ve got a lot of options. A lot of depth. The good thing is we’ve had to play without a lot of people this year and we’ve had to adapt to that. So we’ll figure it out." The Warriors were actually at their best with Speights on the floor against the Thunder during the season with Speights' team-high plus-45.4 net rating in 41 minutes. If Bogut is out, Speights is on the table as a DFS punt.
May 14 - 7:27 PM

Marreese Speights scored a team-high 22 points in a loss to the Rockets on Thursday, shooting 7-of-11 from the field.

He also hit 3-of-5 3-pointers and added four rebounds and one block in just 18 minutes. Speights picked up a few extra minutes with Andrew Bogut getting into some foul trouble, so most fantasy owners will want to ignore this big line unless he does it again.
Apr 22 - 1:10 AM

Marreese Speights scored 12 points with five rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

Who needs Stephen Curry (ankle) when you have a hot Mo Buckets? In his usual fashion, Speights had a team-high 39.9 usage rate in this win while making 5-of-11 from the field. Because of the possibility of garbage time, Speights might get decent run in this series.
Apr 16 - 7:06 PM

Steve Kerr praised Mo Speights, calling his play "fantastic this last month or so."

March has been Speights' most productive month of the season with averages of 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 3-pointers on 50.9 percent shooting, and while he can be a per-minute monster, Speights isn't a reliable asset to deploy in standard fantasy formats.
