Hasheem Thabeet has passed on offers to play in Europe, and has committed to join the Grand Rapids of the D-League.
The former No. 2 overall pick of the 2009 draft will now attempt to impress in the D-League in order to sign an NBA contract. However, he's never been able to produce meaningful stats on an NBA team, so even if he does get a contract, there's no reason to pay him any mind in a fantasy league. Oct 31 - 11:30 AM

Pistons waive former No. 2 overall pick Hasheem Thabeet.

Thabeet was waived along with Brian Cook, Lorenzo Brown and Josh Bostic. It's unclear if another team will take a chance on Thabeet, which would close the book on one of biggest draft busts of the last 10 years.

The Pistons will sign Hasheem Thabeet to a non-guarantted deal.

The 76ers waived him, which is all you really need to know about his chances to make the Pistons. Thabeet has been a bust since being selected before guys like James Harden and Stephen Curry in the 2009 NBA Draft.

The Thunder traded Hasheem Thabeet and cash to the 76ers on Tuesday for a second-round pick, thus acquiring a $1.3 million trade exception.

The Sixers are expected to immediately waive Thabeet, whose fleeting acquisition bumps Philly a bit closer to the NBA's salary-cap 'floor'. With Kendrick Perkins, Steven Adams and rookie Mitch McGary filling out their center position, Thabeet was expendable for OKC, so they took the chance to earn a small salary-cap asset. The draft pick involved is so heavily protected that it's not expected to ever come to OKC. It's anyone's guess where Thabeet might land once he clears waivers.

Hakeem Thabeet is hoping to return to the Oklahoma City Thunder next season.

Thabeet has a $1.25 million team option for next season and should have his option picked up as long as the Thunder don't find themselves in salary cap trouble. The Number 2 overall pick of the 2009 saw his minutes dip to 8.3 per game this season, but would still like to return to the team who gave him a chance. "That’s the goal," Thabeet said of coming back. "I don’t know anything else. I haven’t heard anything else. I’m going to be here over the summer working out. That’s really all I can say about that situation." We'll update this situation as soon as more information is available, but 27-year-old doesn't hold much fantasy value heading into the 2014-15 season.

Hasheem Thabeet (personal reasons) has returned to the Thunder.

It is unclear why Thabeet was away from the team, but his return shouldn't have fantasy owners all excited. Thabeet has scored 25 total points during the entire 2013-14 season and hasn't fared much better in the rebounding category with just 35 boards. Despite his status as a former Top 5 draft pick, Thabeet is better off left unowned in every fantasy league.

Hasheem Thabeet (personal) will not play against the Nuggets on Monday.

He is also considered doubtful for Tuesday's game. Thabeet has seen some minutes here and there while Kendrick Perkins (groin) has been out, but it's only been 9.3 per game over his last nine. OKC won't miss him much.
Mar 24 - 5:26 PM

Hasheem Thabeet scored a season-high seven points against the Sixers on Tuesday with three boards and two blocks in 18 minutes.

Of all the things the Sixers did tonight, allowing Thabeet to score seven points might be the worst. He scored just 12 points in 78 minutes before tonight and his seven-point night should hold up as his best game of the season. We hope you don't need fantasy analysis here.
Mar 5 - 12:55 AM

Hasheem Thabeet picked up his second straight DNP-CD on Sunday.

He also missed OKC's first game due to a one-game suspension. Steven Adams has taken over backup center duties behind Kendrick Perkins, relegating Thabeet to bench-warmer status.

The NBA suspended Hasheem Thabeet for one game without pay for headbutting Greg Stiemsma on Oct. 17.

The Thunder won't be needed him for their opener on the 30th against the Jazz. Steven Adams has clearly outplayed him and Thabeet isn't worth drafting in any format.

Hasheem Thabeet could be traded and become the Thunder's third trade exception.

It hasn't been a smooth ride for Thabeet in his four-year career. The Thunder spent a lottery pick on Steven Adams, so Thabeet has become expendable. He was taken with the third pick in the 2009 NBA Draft -- one pick before James Harden -- and is unlikely to see much more than his 11.7 minutes per game from last season.

Hasheem Thabeet said that he was "happy with how the year turned out."

Thabeet's signing raised some eyebrows when the Thunder inked him, and he averaged 2.4 points, three rebounds and 0.9 blocks in just 11.7 minutes per game. While we wouldn't say Thabeet is a "diamond in the rough" as the article suggests, he has shown to be a capable reserve center at this stage in his career.

Scott Brooks said that Hasheem Thabeet could play a few more minutes in Game 3 on Saturday.

Well, Scott Brooks is getting a little desperate here. If he does play Thabeet more than the 13 minutes he played in Game 2, he's basically playing right into Lionel Hollins' hands. The Grizzlies thrive at a slower tempo and ranked 28th in the NBA in pace, so Brooks' logic is likely to try and limit the Grizzlies on the offensive glass. Brooks added that he will put Thabo Sefolosha on Mike Conley more, which does make sense.

Hasheem Thabeet (sore lower back) will be active against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Thabeet had missed two straight games with the ailment. However, much like his absence, Thabeet's return to the lineup is unlikely to affect all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Hasheem Thabeet (sore lower back) sat out his second straight game on Sunday.

Thabeet's absence goes unremarked in all but the deepest fantasy leagues, as he's averaging 2.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.9 blocks.
