Nuggets waive G Jamaal Franklin.

Franklin was signed out of the D-League for the end of Denver's season last year, but he'll have to look elsewhere for his next opportunity.

The Nuggets have signed G Jamaal Franklin for the remainder of the season.

Franklin isn't likely to get many minutes right out the gate, so he can be left on the waiver wire in all leagues.

The Nuggets are reportedly planning on signing D-League G Jamaal Franklin for the remainder of the season.

Franklin could potentially get some run with the Nuggets if they decide to rest Ty Lawson down the stretch, but until he actually signs with Denver, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Jamaal Franklin is reportedly likely to get an NBA call-up soon.

Through 21 games with the Grizzlies last season, Franklin put in averages of 1.9 points on 41.0 percent shooting from the field. He may be able to land a 10-day deal with an NBA team, but he's not going to be a viable fantasy option in most leagues.

Ex Grizziles guard Jamaal Franklin could return to the NBA in January.

He's currently playing in China and scored scored 53 points on 19-of-29 shooting yesterday. He's eligible for a return to the NBA in January, but regardless of where he lands, 53 points might be a good over-under for the total points he might score over the last few months of season.

Jamaal Franklin is reportedly joining the Zheijang Lions in China this season.

Franklin was waived by the Grizzlies in August. He worked out for the Spurs in September but failed to earn a guaranteed contract, and it seems he'll seek his fortunes overseas this year. Whether or not the deal includes an opt-out clause, he's not on any fantasy radars.

Former Grizzlies G Jamaal Franklin has been working out for the Spurs this week.

Franklin shot 45.5 percent from downtown in limited action with the Grizzlies last season, and once he joined the D-League he notched 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.8 steals. If he does join the Spurs for training camp, they'll have no fewer than 19 players on the roster.

The Grizzlies waived G Jamaal Franklin via the stretch provision on Sunday.

Franklin was owed just $816k this season so it's an interesting that they 'stretched' his salary-cap number instead of buying out his contract. The 6'5" SG barely saw the court under coach Dave Joerger last season but he has enough talent to earn a look from another NBA team during training camp.

Grizzlies guard Jamaal Franklin is shooting 4-of-22 from the field through two games at the Orlando Pro Summer League.

"I’m getting good looks and playing the right style. I just can’t seem to get the ball in the hoop," said Franklin. He'll earn a guaranteed rookie-scale salary for the 2014-15 season, but he shot just 41.0 percent as a rookie and has a long road to earning reliable minutes in Dave Joerger's rotation.

Jamaal Franklin played nine fourth quarter minutes in Wednesday's win over Milwaukee.

Franklin's minutes were the first he's seen since December 28th, as the Grizzlies looked to infuse a fourth quarter spark. Said coach Dave Joerger: "Jamaal Franklin did a terrific job." Franklin may again see some minutes going forward as way to jump start the team, but his fantasy value is microscopic at the moment.
Thu, Jan 16, 2014 01:09:00 PM

Jamaal Franklin was recalled by the Grizzlies on Sunday.

He will likely be with the team for Sunday's game against the Hawks. Franklin doesn't project to be in the rotation even with Tony Allen out, so there's no reason to think about him in fantasy.
Sun, Jan 12, 2014 04:25:00 PM

Jamaal Franklin was sent down to the D-League on Friday.

Franklin was averaging just 1.9 points in 9.2 minutes over 14 games for the Grizzlies this season, and the demotion should give him a chance to work on his game.

Jamaal Franklin stepped into the injured Quincy Pondexter's spot in the Grizzlies' rotation during Monday's win over the Magic.

Franklin's 15 minutes Monday night were the most he's seen this season and he responded with his highest point total of the season (eight). The ailing Grizzlies brought in several players for tryouts on Monday, but it looks like Franklin should see around 15 minutes a game going forward now that Quincy Pondexter will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury. However, like Pondexter, Franklin won't be much of a fantasy asset unless he is somehow able to earn his way to playing 25-30 minutes a night.
