Raptors coach Dwane Casey said that the starting PF role is Jared Sullinger's job to lose.
Casey wants to see how Sullinger meshes with Jonas Valanciunas defensively before committing to this linuep, but the good news is that he's also expected to spend some time as the backup five. Casey also said that Sullinger has the green light from 3-point range, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited because he's just a career 27.6 percent shooter from deep. He's shaping up to be a decent flier in the later rounds, but his injury history is worrying. Sep 26 - 11:21 AM

Dwane Casey told Jared Sullinger that, "there's a good chance he will start at the four and bounce back at the five."

With the Raptors losing Bismack Biyombo via free agency, it sounds like Casey expects to use Sullinger as both his starting power forward and backup center. Sullinger is going into yet another contract season, and he should be able to improve his fantasy value this year playing in Toronto's less crowded frontcourt, as he has a realistic shot at earning close to 30 minutes a night. He'll be one of the higher upside guys to take towards the later rounds on draft day.

Dwane Casey said that he's expecting to go into training camp with Jared Sullinger as the team's starting power forward, "Unless [Sullinger] comes out and stinks up the place."

While Sullinger is expected to start, backup Patrick Patterson is expected to receive the bulk of the power forward minutes for Toronto, so the starter designation for Sullinger isn't necessarily a boost to his fantasy value. Sullinger is hoping to boost his value in another contract season, but after compiling averages of just 10.3 points, 8.3 boards and 2.3 assists on 43.5 percent shooting last season, Sully won't be worth much more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.

The Raptors have officially signed F/C Jared Sullinger.

Sullinger has signed a one-year, $6 million deal that he hopes will help him rebuild his value for next summer. While the 24-year-old has struggled with weight issues, he could be a nightly double-double threat if he's able to earn himself enough minutes with Toronto.

Jared Sullinger is hopeful that he can play himself into a bigger payday going into yet another contract year.

Sullinger reported turned down much more lucrative offers than the one-year, $6 million deal he signed with Toronto, and that's because he believes he can improve his worth playing an important role for a playoff team. "What happened the last two weeks has been major wake-up call for him," said Sullinger's agent David Falk. "He’s in the gym twice a day. He knows what he has to do." Sullinger's weight reportedly ballooned to over 300 pounds last year, which is partly why Boston rescinded their qualifying offer to him during free agency.

Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri said the team is excited to add Jared Sullinger to their roster.

The Raptors have reportedly reached a one-year, $6 million deal with Sullinger, and Ujiri spoke to Sullinger's play against Toronto as an eye-opener. "Just watching him kill us every time we play, you're just attracted to those kind of players," Ujiri said. Sullinger should see more than the 23.6 minutes per game than he averaged in 2015-16 with the Celtics and will be a nightly double-double threat as long as that is the case.
Jul 12 - 10:19 AM

Jared Sullinger said he's joining the Raptors.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, it's a one-year deal worth around $6 million. Sullinger pulled an Al Horford with an announcement on Twitter and changing his avatar to a Raptors logo. The Celtics rescinded Sullinger's qualifying offer, so the Celtics can't match here. The 24-year-old big man saw his minutes dip to 23.6 per game last year, but he did have a career-high 8.3 boards. He'll be fighting Patrick Patterson for the starting job, but won't have much fantasy value.
Jul 11 - 2:45 PM

Celtics coach Brad Stevens echoed comments from GM Danny Ainge about UFA Jared Sullinger's expected departure.

"I think Jared’s a really good player and I think Jared will continue to be a really good player," he said. "Obviously when we got Al, that made us make hard decisions. And the thing that stinks about that is having to move on and move forward, both for him and us. But he’ll do great. Jared’s one of the more talented guys being able to get the ball off the glass, and he’s got beautiful touch and he’s a good guy, and so I think he’ll do well. I’m hopeful this move will benefit him as well, and I think it will." At this point, it would be nothing short of surprising to see Sully back in Beantown.
Jul 11 - 9:07 AM

Speaking during a recent interview, Celtics' GM Danny Ainge sounded like a guy ready to move on from Jared Sullinger, who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"Jared’s a good kid and I’m grateful for what he gave us and I wish him well," Danny Ainge said. "I hope he gets a good opportunity. We just feel this is the best thing for our team." Sullinger has shown flashes throughout his career, but he's just never been able to consistently put everything together, and it looks like Boston is done trying to "develop" his talents. With Al Horford, Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko on the roster, Sullinger has become all too expendable.
Jul 10 - 4:21 PM

The Celtics have rescinded their qualifying offer to Jared Sullinger.

This means that Sullinger is now an unrestricted free agent and Boston no longer has the power to match opposing offers. Danny Ainge hinted last week that the Celtics are still considering re-signing the big man, but it now appears that they will move on. Sullinger should draw plenty of interest around the league and we'll let you know when he's linked to a team.
Jul 10 - 10:38 AM

Danny Ainge hinted that he's open to re-signing Jared Sullinger and Tyler Zeller.

"I've talked with both those guys and we'll continue to see how it all plays out," Ainge said. "We are still looking at doing deals and we're certainly not finished for the summer. Those are two very good players and we'll continue talking with them as the summer goes along." Both players are restricted free agents, but according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg, the Celtis likely wouldn't offer them long-term deals in order to maintain their financial flexibility.

Jared Sullinger tweeted on Wednesday that change is coming.

The restricted free agent added a smiley face for good measure, so we could see the big man sign an offer sheet with a new team on Thursday. We'll keep an eye on Sullinger's next move, but he stands to see a bump in fantasy value if he lands the right opportunity.
Jul 7 - 9:01 AM

Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald does not believe Jared Sullinger will return to the Celtics.

Boston's big man is a restricted free agent, but the C's frontcourt appears set without him following the signing of Al Horford. It's unclear what Sullinger's market currently looks like as we've heard absolutely no buzz regarding him this offseason. He'll need to land in the right spot to regain real fantasy relevance.
Jul 6 - 12:09 PM

The Celtics have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Jared Sullinger, making him a restricted free agent.

Sullinger's preference would be to re-sign with the Celtics, but his fantasy value could see a boost if he opts to join a less crowded frontcourt. Per-36-minutes last season, Sullinger compiled averages of 15.7 points, 12.7 boards and 3.5 assists per contest on 43.5 percent shooting.
Jun 29 - 2:14 PM

Jared Sullinger would like to re-sign with the Boston Celtics.

While Sullinger said he doesn't know what will happen in free agency, the unrestricted free agent would like to return to Boston. "But regardless of whatever happens, I have to thank the Celtics organization for what they have done," Sullinger said. "They gave me a chance when nobody else was going to give me a chance. And just for that I feel like I owe them. I would love to come back." While Sullinger isn't a fantasy stud, he could be a nightly double-double threat in the right situation and may be worth a late-round flier in standard leagues depending on where he signs.
