Ray McCallum scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting (no threes, 4-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and three assists in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Outside of Rudy Gay's 24 points this was the best line in the Sacramento box, speaking to the overall lack of talent in Sacramento. Look for ownership to continue making changes. Mar 30 - 11:10 PM

Ray McCallum made only 5-of-17 shots vs. Philly on Tuesday to finish with 11 points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

The Kings wore a throwback jersey tonight, hearkening to the 1920s when they were known as the Rochester Seagrams, but McCallum showed his rookie stripes in an uneven performance. The good news is that he didn't turn the ball over in 32 minutes of action and his borderline value in 12-team leagues could improve if the Kings choose to unleash him over their final 12 games.
Mar 25 - 12:53 AM

Ray McCallum finished Sunday's home win with 13 points, one 3-pointer, two boards and a team-high six assists while doing an admirable job defensively vs. John Wall.

Andre Miller (six points in 18 minutes) has been a thorn in McCallum's side for weeks, forcing a timeshare at the PG position, but it's hard to imagine the Kings limiting McCallum's minutes in the final few weeks of the season. Most owners can watch him from a distance for now, but don't hesitate to grab him if he starts averaging 30+ minutes per game.
Mar 22 - 8:45 PM

Ray McCallum managed just eight points with four rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes on Friday against the Hornets.

McCallum was forcing shots and had four turnovers, and like his veteran backup Andre Miller he's a late-round guy that is unlikely to have upside beyond that. If you dropped him to get your hands on a hot free agent we wouldn't blame you one bit.
Mar 21 - 2:50 AM

Ray McCallum was the second best player in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Saturday with 15 points, six boards, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-8 from the field.

It was a decent game for him on offense, but he was in John Wall's world all night. With Rudy Gay (knee) out, there should be more play-making chances for Ray Mac going forward. If you were on the fence on adding him before this, the Gay injury might put him over the top for you.
Mar 14 - 9:30 PM

Ray McCallum hit just 1-of-7 shots for six points, four rebounds and nine assists in Wednesday's win over the Hornets.

His shooting and scoring were broken tonight, but the assists were a season-high for the fill-in point guard. He had scored in double figures in three of his previous four games coming into Wednesday, and had been shooting it better than this, so a mini bounce-back should be coming.
Mar 11 - 11:04 PM

Ray McCallum posted a nice line in the Kings' blowout loss, scoring 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

As long as he isn't disappearing or struggling with his shot too much, then he's bound to bring back top-100 returns. And if he can toss in a couple of games like this, it's all gravy for owners to close the season.
Mar 9 - 11:35 PM

Ray McCallum hit just 4-of-10 shots for 13 points, two rebounds, two assists and one trey in 32 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

McCallum can get to the rim but he lacks a jumper and in general he gets lost within the Kings offense pretty easily. The organization will break their necks to give him every chance possible to be productive, and the Kings could very well start tanking at any time, so owners should be patient with the top-100 returns over the past two weeks.
Mar 7 - 12:17 AM

Ray McCallum had 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block on 6-of-12 shooting in 30 minutes on Wednesday.

That's not a bad line, but is also a far cry from his 20-point game last Friday. He's going to start at point guard until further notice, so just keep running him out there and hope that he gets hot.
Mar 5 - 1:51 AM

Kings PG Ray McCallum made only 2-of-7 shots on Tuesday, finishing the Kings' blowout win with six points, three rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes.

He had scored 10+ points in four straight games prior to this quiet performance, and remains a far more appealing option than backup Andre Miller (scoreless in 20 minutes). McCallum is worth adding to your bench if you're in need of some low-end scoring, 3-pointers, assists and steals.
Mar 3 - 9:50 PM

Ray McCallum scored a season-high 20 points on 10-of-17 shooting with zero rebounds, three assists and one steal in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

McCallum missed his only 3-point attempt and did not get to the foul line, and so far he hasn't shown the versatility one wants in standard fantasy formats. If he can shoot with any degree of effectiveness he's well-positioned to be a fantasy asset, but shooting has been the issue holding him back throughout his career. Regardless, he's worth a look in standard formats.

With news that Darren Collison (hip) is likely to miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season, Kings' head coach George Karl said that he intends to have Ray McCallum and Andre Miller split minutes at the point guard slot.

"I think Ray’s played well," Karl said. "I think right now probably my desire is to split them, probably 24-24 is kind of in mind what it’s going to end up. Probably defensively, Ray would be in the game when it counts and Andre would be in the game probably offensively." As a starter this season, McCallum is averaging 9.3 points, 4.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game, limiting his value to deeper leagues.
Feb 26 - 4:36 PM

Ray McCallum started again on Wednesday but had just 10 points, three assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting in a win over the Grizzlies.

Ray-Mac was fired up after the game and said so on Twitter, but he hasn't come close to matching the production of Darren Collison, who remains out with a hip injury. Collison should see a specialist soon, but the news as of late Wednesday night is that his season is likely over. With McCallum struggling and Andre Miller getting 26 minutes, four points, six boards and seven assists tonight, it's possible that Miller takes over the starting job at some point, not that he'll become a must-own player in most leagues if it were to happen.
Feb 26 - 2:28 AM

Ray McCallum started for Darren Collison (hip) on Friday against the Celtics, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, four assists and five turnovers in 25 minutes.

McCallum hasn't developed like the folks in Sacramento had hoped, but he plays hard and if he could ever develop a shot then he'd have a nice future as a backup point guard. Approach him with some caution in standard leagues while Collison is out.
Feb 21 - 4:22 AM

Ray McCallum is in line to start at point guard against the Celtics on Friday.

With Darren Collison (hip) already doubtful and newly-acquired Andre Miller unlikely to suit up on Friday, McCallum could be in line for big minutes against the Celtics. While fantasy owners in season-long leagues can ignore this news, McCallum would be an interesting (and cheap) option in daily leagues if he gets the start on Friday.
