Hollis Thompson will not be retained by New Orleans, according to Pelicans' reporter Scott Kushner.
Thompson's second 10-day contract expired today, and with averages of just 3.8 points, 3.1 boards and not much else on 26.8 percent shooting, he didn't give New Orleans much incentive to keep him. Mar 15 - 10:04 AM

Hollis Thompson will be replaced in the starting lineup by Wayne Selden for Tuesday night's game vs. the Blazers.

Minimal fantasy impact here, as Thompson was averaging just 3.9 points and 3.5 rebounds despite starting each of the Pelicans last eight games. He belongs on waivers in nearly all leagues.
Mar 14 - 7:26 PM

Hollis Thompson played 14 minutes in a start against the Hornets on Saturday with two points, five rebounds and two assists.

Jordan Crawford is obviously hurting Thompson's playing time. Thompson may continue to start to add some perimeter length, but he's not a fantasy option in almost any league. He's not a lock to be brought back when his 10-day deal ends next week.
Mar 11 - 10:36 PM

Hollis Thompson has inked a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans.

Thompson has been logging heavy minutes as New Orleans' starting two-guard, so there's a good chance he'll be able to earn a rest-of-season contract once this second 10-day deal expires. However, even as a starter, Thompson can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.
Mar 5 - 4:30 PM

Hollis Thompson played 40 minutes in the starting lineup against the Pistons on Wednesday with eight points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

E'Twaun Moore came off the bench and the Pelicans needed Dante Cunningham to play more power forward, so there were plenty of minutes available. Assuming Thompson stays on the team, he's likely looking at minutes in the 20s, but there won't be enough shots for him to matter in most leagues.
Mar 1 - 11:47 PM

Hollis Thompson started Sunday's game but finished with only seven points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes of action.

Thompson isn't guaranteed to earn another 10-day contract, let alone lock up a starting job in the season's final weeks. He's getting the minutes but the production has yet to follow, and he belongs on your waiver wire.

Hollis Thompson will earn another start at SG on Sunday.

Thompson logged 25 scoreless minutes as a starter on Saturday, and there's not a lot to like here with E'Twaun Moore (personal) returning to the lineup.
Feb 26 - 6:52 PM

Hollis Thompson did not score in 25 minutes with two rebounds, three assists and one steal during his start against the Mavs on Saturday.

With E'Twaun Moore (personal) out, Thompson was the choice to start over Reggie Williams. Obviously this game won't help him get another start or get a second 10-day deal when the time comes.
Feb 25 - 11:57 PM

Hollis Thompson will start at shooting guard against the Mavs on Saturday.

The Pelicans have Jrue Holiday, Tim Frazier and a bunch of 10-day deal guards for tonight. Thompson should be looking at minutes in the 20s while Frazier should see a decent amount of minutes next to Holiday. Frazier would be the better DFS play today.
Feb 25 - 7:11 PM

Hollis Thompson made his Pelicans debut on Thursday and played five minutes, scoring three points.

Right now, only E'Twaun Moore, Tim Frazier and Thompson are available to play shooting guard for the Pelicans, while SF Omri Casspi suffered a broken thumb tonight. Moore's the guy to own here, in part because he's starting, but Frazier and Thompson are also worth keeping a close eye on over the next few games.
Feb 23 - 11:23 PM

Hollis Thompson has officially signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans.

New Orleans needs to add some depth after trading away Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans, so there's a chance Thompson will stick around all season. Even if he joins the rotation immediately, there's no clear path to fantasy relevance here.
Feb 23 - 6:09 PM

The Pelicans are close to signing Hollis Thompson to a 10-day contract, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

New Orleans lacks depth in the backcourt and wings, following their splashy trade for DeMarcus Cousins, and they recently auditioned Thompson in addition to Mario Chalmers, Quinn Cook and Reggie Williams. He'll be a bit player, assuming he does crack the Pelicans' rotation, and the vast majority of owners can leave him on the wire.
Feb 22 - 7:23 PM

76ers waive G/F Hollis Thompson.

The 76ers want to play Dario Saric at the three more and it's been a successful combo for them, so getting him more minutes at that spot makes sense -- he also had the game-winning pass on Tuesday night. This should also help Robert Covington get a couple extra minutes. Saric and RoCo figure to be trending up and both get slight bumps along with Ersan Ilyasova. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot also sticks in the rotation.
Jan 4 - 4:05 PM

Hollis Thompson scored seven points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

With Nik Stauskas set to slide over to the point guard spot more on Friday, there should be even more run for Thompson. Still, not getting a bump tonight with Gerald Henderson (hip) out is somewhat discouraging. While he could start on Friday, he'll be a risky DFS play.

Hollis Thompson (sore left knee) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday, coming off the bench for one point and three rebounds in 17 minutes.

Philly ranks last in the league in offensive efficiency at 97.3 points per 100 possessions, but they took advantage of a great matchup to boost that number to 104.0 for tonight. Nik Stauskas (sore left knee) was out of commission tonight and Thompson still couldn't join in the offensive fun, which is further proof that he belongs on the waiver wire.
