Marreese Speights scored nine points on 4-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Wolves.
Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely and Jermaine O'Neal (10 points, four boards, one steal) is a candidate to be held out of Wednesday's game. That makes Speights a likely target to carry the load down low, and he has a history of big games when he's allowed to shoot at will. Hilton Armstrong could also take over O'Neal's lower-minute role.

Marreese Speights took advantage of the Lakers on Friday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

The Lakers don't even try to play defense so owners should keep that in mind when assessing Speights going forward. The Warriors are basically locked into the No. 6 seed so they may rest some of their key big men down the stretch, and in that case Speights would be worth a look.
Apr 12 - 2:42 AM

Marreese Speights averaged 17.0 points in the Warriors previous two games, but he finished Sunday's easy win with eight points and six rebounds in 16 minutes.

Andrew Bogut's return was the direct cause of Speights' quiet game, and anyone who picked him up for temporary value should promptly return him to the waiver wire.
Apr 6 - 11:39 PM

Marreese Speights scored 22 points on 10-of-16 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Speights saw some extra minutes due to garbage time and it's unknown how long David Lee and Andrew Bogut will be out. Owners should be looking at a speculative spot play with skepticism. The same goes for Jordan Crawford, who added 16 points on 6-of-18 shooting with three treys, two boards, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
Apr 3 - 1:24 AM

Marreese Speights started at PF on Sunday but he played only 19 minutes to finish with four points, eight rebounds and one block.

David Lee's hamstring injury has thrust Speights into a bigger role, and it's unclear whether Lee will be ready for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Even if Lee sits out, however, Speights' upside is limited by the Warriors' ability to go small with Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes in the frontcourt.
Mar 30 - 11:57 PM

Marreese Speights started in place of David Lee on Friday with 15 points, eight boards, one block and two fouls in 26 minutes.

He had some success against his former and it's a little unusual for big men to do well against the Grizzlies. Lee (hamstring) is only day-to-day, so Speights is likely just a short-term add for Sunday's game against the Knicks at best.
Mar 29 - 5:44 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 13 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block on 5-of-10 shooting in 23 minutes on Tuesday.

Andrew Bogut was out, but could return from his ankle injury on Thursday, while Jermaine O'Neal will likely sit for a second time in that one. Speights could do something against the Bucks, but if Bogut plays, all bets are off.
Mar 19 - 2:54 AM

Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points in Monday's ridiculous win over the Sixers, hitting 12-of-15 shots (1-of-2 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with eight rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes off the bench.

Speights hasn't been blurbed since December 18 and it took the combination of Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O'Neal's injuries, the Sixers mailing in their season and Speights timing his once-per-season explosion perfectly. If the same guys miss time he might be worth a look for spot-action in the Warriors' next game on Wednesday against the Heat. Otherwise, take a picture of this because it's not happening again.
Feb 11 - 1:03 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 12 points and six rebounds in just 18 minutes on Tuesday.

He had 16 points and nine boards on Friday, but outside of those two games, he hasn't done enough to even be on the fantasy radar. However, if he keeps playing like this and posts another couple solid lines to finish out the week, he will grab our attention. On Sunday, he sandwiched a line of five points and three rebounds between the good games, which speaks to our point.

Marreese Speights played just 16 minutes, but hit 7-of-14 shots on his way to season highs of 16 points and nine rebounds.

Amazingly, eight of his rebounds were offensive, and while he was instrumental in keeping the Dubs alive tonight, it's hard to see him doing this again anytime soon. Ignore him for now.

The Warriors have agreed on a three-year deal with free agent Marreese Speights.

Speights had a mostly disappointing season with the Cavs last year but it's also possible that his style didn't work with known disciplinarian Byron Scott. In Golden State he'll be a backup rotational big playing behind David Lee and Andrew Bogut.

Marreese Speights has declined his $4.5 million player option with the Cavs and will become a free agent.

He'll be 26 in August, so Speights is probably thinking that this will be his last chance to sign a nice multiple-year deal. It makes even more sense with the Cavs drafting Anthony Bennett. Although, he had a quiet season with the Cavs, failing to play more than 22 minutes per game in any month while scoring 8.3 points per game on 44.5 percent shooting over the course of the season. He'll likely be a bench big with another team and might have a tough time getting a deal close to $4.5 million per year.

The Cavs are hoping Marreese Speights opts out of his contract, according to the News-Herald.

Per the report, the team fears Speights "might not fit their culture." Wherever Speights has gone, he has shown great flashes of productivity, but there have been relentless questions and concerns about his fit and personality with the culture of the team. If Speights does opt out, he should have no issue finding interested suitors despite the checkered past.

Marreese Speights had 16 points on 7-of-13 shooting, 10 rebounds and one steal vs. Brooklyn, tying Kyrie Irving for the team lead in scoring.

He did his damage in just 22 minutes, and starting center Tyler Zeller added 14 points, but that's where the good news ended for Cleveland. Wayne Ellington shot 2-of-8 for five points, Alonzo Gee was 3-of-8 for nine points, and games like this are the reason Byron Scott's job may be in jeopardy this summer.
Wed, Apr 3, 2013 09:30:00 PM

Marreese Speights was hot on Monday and matched his career high with 23 points, adding eight boards, two assists, one steal and one block on 11-of-15 shooting in 25 minutes against the Hawks.

He had his jumper working in the fourth and the Cavs kept feeding him. Speights scored 15 points in that frame and he's starting to warm up a bit after a 12-point game on Sunday. However, he's basically in a timeshare with Tyler Zeller (12 points and two boards in 20 minutes) and neither player are worthy of ownership in standard leagues.
