Patrick Beverley took over the starting PG job on Wednesday and had 12 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.
Ty Lawson was rested tonight and Beverley took advantage of the starting gig vs. Raymond Felton and the depleted Mavericks. It's especially important for him to knock down his 3-pointers, as he's a career 40.1 percent shooter and over 60 percent of his shot attempts came beyond the arc last season. Fantasy owners should be leery of Bev as a backup this season, while cautiously targeting Lawson in the 75-90 range. Oct 7 - 11:00 PM

The Rockets intend to use Patrick Beverley alongside Ty Lawson "a lot" this season.

How much the tandem will be deployed will depend on their success. However, with James Harden and Trevor Ariza also locked into big minutes, it's hard to see the dual point guard look becoming a regular staple for Houston for extended stretches during a particular contest. File this under early season talking points to consider as training camp opens.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said that Patrick Beverley has lost about 10-15 pounds.

Morey also said that Beverley looks like he is in amazing shape and that he and Ty Lawson will give the Rockets some serious depth at point guard. James Harden recently hinted that we could see Beverley playing alongside Lawson, but the expectation is that Lawson will open the season as the starter. Beverley still figures to have a significant role this season, but his fantasy value will likely be limited to deeper leagues.

James Harden said that he could see Patrick Beverley playing alongside Ty Lawson.

"We have a lot of guys that are versatile," Harden said. "We can have Ty Lawson handle the basketball, play Pat [Beverley] off the ball. You can play them together. We have a lot of different lineups, a lot of options with this team. I’ve very excited to see how it all is going to pan out. Good things are going to happen." Beverley is expected to come off the bench with Lawson in town, but he could still have a decent role if Houston decides to play a lot of small ball. As of right now, Beverley is more of a deep league option.

With the arrival of Ty Lawson in Houston, Patrick Beverley could shift to a reserve role with the Rockets.

As a starter for the Rockets last season, Beverley was only able to compile averages of 10.1 points, 3.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 three-pointers per game on 38.3 percent shooting from the field over 30.8 minutes of action. The impending reduction in minutes will cause those numbers to dip, so he's not looking like a guy that will be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues next season.

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.

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."

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.
