Patrick Beverley and the Rockets have agreed on a four-year, $25 million deal.
That's quite a payday for a guy who really can't get his own shot and isn't much of a passer, but it's not just about the offensive side for one of the best defensive guards. Beverley was believed to be in serious talks with the Kings, but once again nobody wants the Kings' money. Mr. 94 Feet made just 38.3 percent from the field last season, averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 treys. Even with the woeful shooting, he's still worth a look late in fantasy drafts. To be clear, this is a very nice deal for the Rockets. Jul 3 - 7:05 PM

The Kings have significant interest in restricted free agent Patrick Beverley.

Someone has to take Vivek Ranadive's money. The Kings are likely going to pursue Rajon Rondo, so Beverley may be the backup plan because the two of them can't play next to each other.
Jul 3 - 12:27 PM

The Knicks are reportedly ramping up their pursuit of restricted free agent Patrick Beverley.

According to sources of Alex Kennedy, the two sides are "talking a lot," and the Knicks could make a big offer to Beverley after missing out on Greg Monroe and likely LaMarcus Aldridge. Beverley would likely be the starter in New York, which would push Jose Calderon to the bench, and limit rookie Jerian Grant's opportunities. However, it needs to be noted that the Rockets can match any offer Beverley receives, so they have a major advantage in being able to retain him.
Jul 2 - 2:37 PM

Unrestricted free agent Patrick Beverley is drawing a lot of interest from around the NBA, and the Rockets, Knicks, Mavericks and Cavaliers have already reached out to the guard.

The Rockets are still considered to be the frontrunners due their huge need for a point guard, but things are starting to get interesting. According to Sporting News, the Knicks have "major interest" in Beverley, and they do have the cap space to lure him to New York. The Mavericks also could use a point guard with Rajon Rondo finally off the books, but Cleveland will likely have to worry about re-signing Kevin Love and LeBron James before they do anything else.
Jul 1 - 1:30 AM

The Rockets have extended a qualifying offer to Patrick Beverley, officially making him a restricted free agent.

The Rockets are reportedly "determined" to re-sign Beverley as a restricted free agent, but the Mavs, Knicks, Bulls and Cavs will all try and pry him away from Houston. Beverley would be looking at a reserve role in Chicago and Cleveland, so those seem like the least likely destinations. He averaged 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 three-pointers per game with the Rockets during the 2014-15 season, so if retained, he won't be much more than a low-end option in standard fantasy leagues.
Jun 30 - 3:21 PM

Chandler Parsons is trying to recruit Patrick Beverley to the Mavericks in free agency.

"I hear from Chandler every day," Beverley said, in what could easily be viewed as tampering. Beverley has expressed his desire to remain with the Rockets multiple times, but with James Harden urging the team to add another playmaker in the backcourt, there may not be room for Beverley, who is in line for a substantial raise.
Jun 1 - 10:19 AM

Patrick Beverley, who will be a restricted free agent this offseason, said that his ideal situation would be re-signing with the Rockets.

"I’m a loyal guy," said Beverley regarding free agency. "[Houston's] the only team that took a chance on me." Beverley is due for a major payday when he signs his next deal, and it'll be interesting to see just how high the Rockets are willing to go in matching the offers he receives on the open market. It's worth noting that when Beverley was asked if he's talked about next season with any other players around the league, he responded: "Yeah, Chandler [Parsons] calls me every day."
May 29 - 1:20 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) said he's frustrated he can't help his team defend Stephen Curry.

"I think I have a gift very few people have," Beverley said. "I know I’m the best on-ball defender in the NBA. I’m the best point guard defender in the NBA. I think the whole league knows that." His nickname is Mr. 94 Feet and the Rockets should think about guarding Curry for 94 feet as well. Beverley is a restricted free agent and the Rockets will likely match most offers.
May 25 - 7:22 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) was spotted shooting around wearing a cast during Sunday's practice.

To be clear, there still have not been any indications that Beverley will be able to play during the Western Conference Finals. He is going to be a restricted free agent when the offseason hits, and his value would likely dip if he re-injured his wrist attempting to play at the 8-week mark of a 10-week timetable. The Rockets are just going to have to make do without their best perimeter defender, which hasn't really worked out too well up to this point.
May 24 - 3:31 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) has reportedly abandoned any hope of suiting up for any games during the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors.

"It’s a no-go for the series," a league source told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday. "He’s done trying." Beverley simply doesn't have the mobility or strength in his left wrist to be able to effective on the basketball court, a realization he came to after going through two workouts on Monday. It'll be Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni doing their best to contain this year's MVP, but in the likely event they are unable to do much against Stephen Curry, it's plausible we see Trevor Ariza pick him up.
May 19 - 3:33 PM

Coach Kevin McHale said Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not play against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

"Pat isn’t gong to get the pins out until the fourth or fifth [of June]," McHale said. "It’s hard to play with a pin in your wrist." McHale keeps having to address this issue and has previously said Beverley won't be back in the postseason. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni stepped up against Chris Paul and will have to do it again against Stephen Curry.
May 18 - 4:32 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) is unlikely to return for the Western Conference Finals.

Beverley is currently in the seventh week of his initial 10-week timetable, and there haven't been any reports up to this point that would suggest Beverley is on the verge of making a return. We have seen some crazy things this postseason with John Wall playing through a very broken wrist, and Mike Conley playing just eight days after major surgery, so we're not going to completely rule him out just yet. However, when coach Kevin McHale was asked if Beverley would be able to return for the playoffs back on May 2, he responded no. We'll let you know if anything changes.
May 17 - 6:55 PM

When coach Kevin McHale was asked if Patrick Beverley (wrist) might return during the playoffs, he replied, "Pat won't be back."

Beverley was seen taking a few shots while wearing a cast this week and he said in mid-April that there's a "very strong possibility" he could play in the postseason. That appears to be overly-optimistic, however, and the Rockets have already declared him out for the playoffs. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will continue to hold down the PG position, with James Harden doing all the heavy lifting for Houston's backcourt.
May 2 - 12:21 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) was taking some shots while wearing his cast on Monday.

He is still nowhere near close to a return and will be in a cast for another six weeks. Beverley has been on the bench with the team and will likely be out for the rest of the playoffs. He does hope to return later in the playoffs, but the Rockets would have to advance very far to make this even a possibility.
Apr 27 - 4:35 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) is hopeful to return for the playoffs.

Beverley was previously ruled out for the season and was expected to need four months of recovery, but the point guard isn't hearing any of that. "Very strong possibility," he said. "Very strong. Let's hope everything goes right." Beverley doesn't care about playing through pain, but he also sounds overly optimistic here. While we're likely to get several more updates before Houston starts the postseason, a surprise Beverley return would certainly be welcomed by his team.
