Warriors waive F Tony Mitchell.

He wasn't in the league last year and only played 79 minutes with the Pistons in 2013-14. Mitchell could be headed to the D-League or overseas.

Tony Mitchell has signed a deal with the Warriors, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

His agent has confirmed the deal. Mitchell, the 37th overall pick in 2013, is almost assuredly getting a training camp invite with an eye toward the D-League.

The Suns have waived Tony Mitchell in order to make room for Brandan Wright following Friday's trade with the Celtics.

Mitchell hadn't even played a single minute for the Suns this season, so it was an easy call for Phoenix to let him go. He's likely headed for the D-League and can remain on the wire in all formats.

The Phoenix Suns received Tony Mitchell in a trade with the Pistons on Wednesday in exchange for Anthony Tolliver.

There is a good chance that Mitchell gets waived, and the Pistons unloaded him in order to add another stretch four to their roster. To be clear, neither player should be owned in most leagues.

Tony Mitchell was recalled from the NBA D-League on Sunday.

He will not be in the Piston's rotation and doesn't figure to have any fantasy value this season. You can safely ignore him in almost all leagues.

The Pistons have sent Tony Mitchell to the D-League.

How irrelevant has Mitchell been over the last year? Our last post about him happened almost a year ago on Dec. 13, with a headline reading "Pistons send Tony Mitchell to D-League."

The Pistons sent Tony Mitchell to the D-League on Thursday.

Mitchell has appeared in just 10 games and almost all of his minutes have come in garbage time this season.

Pistons sign rookie forward Tony Mitchell.

Mitchell was the 37th overall pick in June's draft. He's more of defensive player at this point but could prove to be a bit of a steal for the Pistons in the coming years.

The Pistons landed North Texas F Tony Mitchell with the 37th pick.

He's a forward who can block shots and might be a steal here, as he was projected to go in the first round. He's a solid rebounder and compares to Kenneth Faried, which should make him a nice fit for the Pistons.

According to ESPN, the Knicks are "especially high" on North Texas F Tony Mitchell.

The Knicks view Mitchell as a power forward option at 6'9/236. He drew some comparisons to Kenneth Faried after averaging 14.7 points and 10.3 rebounds on 56.7 percent shooting as a freshman, but those numbers sunk to 13.0, 8.5 and 44.0 as a sophomore. At No. 24 overall, Mitchell is certainly worth a flier.

North Texas F Tony Mitchell has worked out for the Knicks, Blazers, Bulls, Nuggets and Jazz.

Mitchell admits that his effort was sporadic during his sophomore season, which caused his draft stock to slump, but he's on the rise after a strong pre-draft camp in Chicago -- most scouts feel he's the most athletic player in the draft. The Knicks worked him out on Friday may very well take him if he's available at No. 24.

North Texas F Tony Mitchell regrets his mediocre sophomore season, which dropped him from a potential lottery pick to an uncertain commodity.

"I wish I could've changed it," he said this weekend, after interviewing with the Pistons. "I would've changed my effort, how I competed every game." Mitchell averaged 13.0 points and 8.5 rebounds last year, both down from his rookie season, and his lack of intensity and focus has made NBA teams very wary. Rotoworld's latest mock draft has Mitchell going to the Jazz (via Golden State) at No. 21 overall.
