The Nets have interest in unrestricted free agent Jared Sullinger, but according to sources of Anthony Puccio of the Nets Daily, there are rumblings that Sullinger could be headed to China.
The Nets actually have a decent amount of cap space available, so they could potentially make a competitive offer to Sullinger, but he'd be able to be more of a focal point of the offense in China. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out, but if Sullinger is awarded a "show-me" deal by Brooklyn, he could start making blips on the deep league radar. Jul 26 - 11:05 AM

Jared Sullinger is down to 285 pounds.

He was up to 320 pounds in 2015-16, and wasn't in the NBA during the 2016-17 season. Sullinger has changed his eating habits and has been eating vegan for about three weeks. Sullinger is trying to get back in the NBA and he should get a make-good deal to show up at an NBA camp.

Jared Sullinger reportedly had a recent meeting with Pat Riley.

Miami could soon officially waive Chris Bosh, as he's now ineligible to join a playoff team, and thus waiving him now would get his salary completely off the books for free agency this offseason. Once they waive Bosh, that'll open up a roster spot, and it looks like Miami is at least entertaining the idea of bringing in Sullinger on a rest-of-season deal. That being said, until we hear reports that a deal is actually in the works, Sullinger can remain on the waiver wire just about everywhere.

The Celtics could reportedly bring back Jared Sullinger "somewhere down the line if it is needed."

The source of this report maintains that nothing is imminent, but if the Celtics continue to struggle with grabbing the boards, they may consider bringing back Sullinger. In terms of fantasy hoops, Sullinger would have a minimal role in Boston, so there's no reason to stash him anywhere.

Suns waive F/C Jared Sullinger.

He was sent to the Suns just to make the money work on a P.J. Tucker deal. Sullinger has not looked very good due to a foot injury keeping him out, but someone will likely give him a 10-day deal.

The Suns are expected to waive Jared Sullinger.

This was fairly obvious with Sullinger not in the plans for the rebuilding Suns. He will likely clear waivers and isn't likely to be heavily pursued until the other buyout guys have signed.
Feb 23 - 9:15 PM

The Raptors traded Jared Sullinger to the Suns as part of their deal for P.J. Tucker, according to The Vertical.

Toronto also gave up two second-round picks in the deal. They were unwilling to part with young talent or a first-round pick, and ultimately convinced Phoenix to lower their asking price. Sullinger has done very little this season after returning from knee surgery, and there's no reason to think he'll help standard-league owners in a Suns uniform this season.

Beat writer Doug Smith is reporting that while Toronto does not want to trade any of their young players, they would be willing to move Jared Sullinger and a 2017 first-round pick.

"League sources insist Toronto will not give away any more young assets such as Delon Wright, Jakob Poeltl, Lucas Nogueira, Pascal Siakam, Norm Powell or Fred VanVleet, but that doesn’t mean a package can’t be put together," writes Smith in the Toronto Star. Smith adds that the Raps could be in the market for "an offensively creative big small forward." Sullinger, who is on a one-year deal worth $5.6 million, has fallen completely out of the Raptors rotation and has no fantasy value at the moment.
Feb 17 - 11:30 AM

Jared Sullinger was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

Sullinger was called up from the D-League earlier in the day, as the Raptors are doing whatever they can to get him in shape following knee surgery. He's never been known for his dedication to conditioning, so it could take a while. He's waiver wire fodder in all leagues until his role evolves.
Feb 12 - 8:56 PM

Jared Sullinger has been recalled from the D-League.

Bruno Caboclo and Fred VanVleet were also called up prior to Sunday's game vs. the Pistons. Sullinger is out of shape and hasn't played more than nine minutes in the Raptors' past four games.
Feb 12 - 3:18 PM

Jared Sullinger was assigned to the D-League on Friday.

He's likely going to be right back up for Sunday's game against the Pistons. Sullinger doesn't look to be in game shape and isn't in the rotation right now.
Feb 10 - 5:46 PM

Jared Sullinger squared off vs. his former team in Boston on Wednesday, producing 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting, one 3-pointer, six rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes.

Revenge games may not actually benefit fantasy owners, but it sure looked like Sullinger brought extra juice against his former teammates tonight. With two DNPs in his past three games, though, it'll take more than one strong bench performance to recommend him as a fantasy option.
Feb 1 - 10:50 PM

Jared Sullinger returned to the rotation on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound in seven minutes.

Sullinger was back after a brief stint in the D-League, which was probably designed to improve his conditioning. He has failed to score on combined 0-of-11 shooting in his past three games, and fantasy owners can ignore him until further notice.
Jan 30 - 12:33 AM

Jared Sullinger has been recalled from the D-League.

After picking up a DNP-CD on Friday, the Raptors sent him to the D-League for one game on Saturday in order to keep him in shape. He will be available on Sunday vs. the Magic, but he's looking at a handful of minutes at best in Toronto's crowded frontcourt. Delon Wright and Bruno Caboclo were also recalled.
Jan 29 - 11:55 AM

Jared Sullinger will play for the Raptors 905 in the D-League on Saturday.

Due to having more than three years of experience, Sullinger and the Players Association had to sign off on the move. He was a DNP-CD on Friday and will be eased back into action. He looked a little roster since his return. Leave him on the wire.
