Kent Bazemore (foot) will be brought along slowly in training camp.
He is expected to be ready for the start of the season. Bazemore had season-ending foot surgery back in April and signed a two-year deal in July. He will likely help the second unit on the wing and isn't worth drafting in most fantasy leagues. Sep 26 - 8:15 PM

Hawks sign G/F Kent Bazemore for two years.

He'll make $2 million per season and is expected to see action at both the SG and SF spots for the Hawks, although it appears he'll come off the bench. How many minutes he'll get will determine his fantasy value, but Bazemore has the potential for big things in Atlanta. Target him as a late sleeper in your drafts.

Kent Bazemore will reportedly sign a two-year, $4 million deal to play for the Hawks.

Bazemore's contract is fully guaranteed and though there are some quality players along the wing with Kyle Korver, and DeMarre Carroll, Thabo Sefolosha and if we're feeling nice John Salmons -- this isn't necessarily a crucial blow to his fantasy value. If he can elbow his way in front of Sefolosha and Salmons, he could be positioned for 20-30 minutes per game.

The Lakers are still hoping to retain unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore.

The Lakers reportedly called Bazemore again Wednesday night to reiterate their desire to re-sign him. Bazemore had a bit of a breakout season in averaging 12.5 points, 1.5 three-pointers, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.3 dimes and 1.2 steals during the month of March and has received interest from the Jazz, Hawks, Celtics, Spurs, and Hornets. The Lakers have their work cut out for them in retaining Bazemore, but even if they don't retain the 25-year-old, it looks sounds as if they're committed to going down in a Baze of Glory

Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore met with the Hawks in Atlanta on Monday, however, no deal is imminent.

Bazemore has meetings scheduled with San Antonio (Tues), Boston (Wed), and Charlotte (Sat). He reportedly is expected to make a decision by next Sunday or Monday, but he would have the best chance at putting up relevant stats in Boston.
Jul 7 - 6:07 PM

Free agent Kent Bazemore is expected to have a face-to-face meeting with the Hawks on Monday.

He's also expected to meet with the Spurs on Tuesday and the Celtics on Wednesday, and reports that he'd agreed to a deal with the Hawks are incorrect. He's also drawn interest from the Rockets, Jazz, Warriors, Lakers, Suns and Mavericks, and it's too early to conclude that he's ruled those teams out of contention.
Jul 6 - 8:23 PM

Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore had meetings with the Spurs and Celtics this week and he's also getting interest from the Hawks, Rockets, Jazz, Warriors, Lakers, Suns and Mavericks.

The Lakers didn't send him a qualifying offer and won't have any contractual advantages compared to the other teams. His foot injury is not expected to keep him out long and he could be ready for action this month.
Jul 5 - 6:01 PM

The 76ers have reportedly reached out to unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore.

The move does make a bit of sense as the 76ers currently have a hole at the shooting guard position, and his skill set would mesh well with the young 76ers' roster. Bazemore had a bit of a coming out party upon being sent to the Lakers last season, averaging 13.1 points, 1.3 steals, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers on 45.1 percent shooting from the floor. Bazemore has also received interest from the Hawks, Spurs, Suns, Celtics, Lakers, and Mavericks, which may drive up his price a bit on the open market.
Jul 4 - 11:49 AM

Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore has received interest from the Warriors.

He was with the Warriors earlier this season before being sent to the Lakers in the Steve Blake deal. Bazemore sort of came out of nowhere at Las Vegas Summer League with the Warriors last year and the team could wind up bringing him back to come off the bench. For what it's worth, he still lives in the Bay Area.
Jul 3 - 5:29 PM

The Jazz have moved past the preliminary stages of talks with Kent Bazemore, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

McMenamin also added that the sides are not close to a deal, so it doesn't sound like there's anything imminent here. The 25-year-old flashed some potential in averaging 12.5 points, 1.5 three-pointers, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.3 dimes and 1.2 steals during the month of March and has already met with the Jazz as part of the free agency process. Utah could still manage to land Bazemore while the Lakers focus on wooing Carmelo Anthony, but Jazz fans may want to hold off on buying their "Purple Baze" jerseys for now.
Jul 3 - 1:03 PM

Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore has been talking to the Jazz about a contract.

The Lakers reportedly want him back, but he's going to be a lower priority for them while they go after big-name free agents. If they're not careful, Bazemore could sign with another team instead of waiting around to see what the Lakers offer.
Jul 2 - 3:10 PM

Free agent Kent Bazemore is set to meet with the Spurs on Tuesday, and the Celtics on Wednesday, as part of his tour.

The Lakers have already been in contact, but Bazemore will be obviously looking for the best deal possible. He had some big games last season, but chances are his fantasy value will be hindered by a bench role next season.
Jul 1 - 8:08 PM

The Spurs have contacted representatives for free agent Kent Bazemore, who has already drawn interest from the Celtics, Hawks, Lakers and Mavericks.

Bazemore is an unrestricted FA who opened some GM's eyes during 23 games with the Lakers last season, when he averaged 13.1 points on 45.1 percent shooting (37.1 percent from downtown). He also had 1.4 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals in only 28 minutes per game, and in the right situation he could be a surprisingly valuable fantasy asset.
Jul 1 - 3:06 PM

Along with the Hawks, Mavericks and Celtics, Kent Bazemore got a call from the Lakers on Tuesday morning in hopes that they can persuade him to return.

Bazemore had some big games for the Lakers last season (along with some duds), but as far as his fantasy value goes, if the Lakers don't come through with the huge moves they're hoping to, a return for Bazemore could be fun to watch.
Jul 1 - 1:49 AM

The Hawks were the first team to reach out to unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore, and he has also received interest from the Mavs and Celtics.

The Hawks are an interesting destination because of their general lack of depth, so this would be a positive development for Bazemore if it pans out. The Celtics wouldn't be a bad landing spot, either.
