Justin Hamilton has reportedly agreed to sign with the Beijing Ducks.

Hamilton spent last season in Brooklyn. He was traded to the Raptors earlier this month in exchange for DeMarre Carroll, a 2018 first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick. Toronto waived him after the deal was completed to clear cap space.
Jul 15 - 1:42 PM

Raptors waive F/C Justin Hamilton.

He was added in the DeMarre Carroll trade to make the numbers work, but Hamilton didn't have much of a chance to stick with the depth in Toronto's frontcourt. Despite a strong start to his Nets career back in November, Hamilton may be heading back overseas.
Jul 14 - 5:36 PM

The Raptors reportedly intend to waive Justin Hamilton after acquiring him from the Nets.

Hamilton was included in the DeMarre Carroll deal to make the numbers work, but he was never expected to remain in Toronto. Hamilton is a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Jul 9 - 6:28 PM

Justin Hamilton was traded to the Raptors for DeMarre Carroll and draft picks.

This is just a straight salary dump for DeMarre Carroll, so the Raptors likely had no interest in giving Hamilton playing time, especially with how well Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl have played in Las Vegas. Hamilton will likely compete for a roster spot in October.
Jul 9 - 12:38 AM

Justin Hamilton will start against the Bulls on Wednesday.

With the Nets very thin up front due to Brook Lopez and a host of others not playing, Hamilton should get plenty of shots as a stretch five. He's worth a look in DFS.
Apr 12 - 7:23 PM

Justin Hamilton scored six points with one rebound and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday.

Quincy Acy (ankle) is dealing with some soreness and did not play, so Hamilton picked up the backup center minutes. If for some reason the Nets do opt to rest Brook Lopez in the upcoming back-to-back set, Hamilton may be a viable stream of DFS punt.
Mar 30 - 9:56 PM

Justin Hamilton scored 20 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers against the Wizards on Friday.

It's just his second 20-point game of th season with his first coming back in November. Hamilton likely won't have much value while the Nets are keeping Brook Lopez active.
Mar 24 - 10:09 PM

Justin Hamilton picked up another DNP-CD vs. Atlanta on Wednesday.

Hamilton dealt with an illness last week but his absence from the lineup is strictly the result of coach Kenny Atkinson's rotations. He could surface on the fantasy radar if Brooklyn ultimately shuts down Brook Lopez, but until then he's not worth stashing.
Mar 8 - 10:39 PM

Justin Hamilton was a DNP-CD on Saturday against the Blazers.

He was probable to play, so maybe he is out of the rotation. Quincy Acy has played somewhat well lately, too. Leave Hamilton on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 5 - 1:00 AM

Justin Hamilton (illness) is probable for Saturday against the Blazers.

He missed Friday's game against the Jazz due to his illness. The Nets did not report Hamilton had anything wrong in their morning update on Friday, but added him later to suggest Friday was his first day with the illness. He should be good to go, but obviously it's going to be tough to count on him in the late start tonight. His return should cut into Quincy Acy's playing time.

Mar 4 - 3:28 PM

Justin Hamilton (illness) will not play Friday against the Jazz.

It's the front end of a back-to-back set and the Nets said they had nothing on the injury report this morning, so take that information how you like. With him out, we'll likely see more Quincy Acy and Trevor Booker behind Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Brook Lopez. We could see Andrew Nicholson as well.

Mar 3 - 7:32 PM

Justin Hamilton scored eight points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and no turnovers in 19 minutes against the Raptors on Sunday.

With Quincy Acy (ankle) going down today, Hamilton should be looking at a couple extra minutes. Believe it or not, the Nets have actually used Acy as a floor spacer, and he actually led the team in treys on Friday. Still, Hamilton only gets a slight bump and would be looking at around 20 minutes.
Feb 5 - 2:47 PM

Justin Hamilton was a DNP-CD on Friday.

The shift of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to the four has hurt Hamilton quite a bit. He did play 19 minutes in his last game, and he's basically sharing the No. 4-5 big roles with Luis Scola and Quincy Acy. He needs a few thing to happen to have value.
Feb 3 - 10:56 PM

Justin Hamilton scored nine points with seven rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

He will likely be getting most of his minutes at power forward now with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson getting dinged up today. Unless you had Hamilton on your short list, he's not a pickup just yet. Plus, the Nets have rested him this season.
