Ray McCallum has joined the Grand Rapids Drive in the NBA D-League.

McCallum signed two 10-day contracts with the Hornets, but never made an appearance and Charlotte didn't offer him a deal for the remainder of the season. The Hornets will use the roster spot to pursue Briante Weber.

The Hornets have signed Ray McCallum to another 10-day deal.

He hasn't even made an appearance yet with Ramon Sessions (knee) out, so there's no fantasy value here.

Hornets sign G Ray McCallum.

With Ramon Sessions now dealing with a sore knee, this move makes a lot more sense. Plus, Kemba Walker is ill, so McCallum could actually be looking at minutes against the Jazz on Saturday. He hasn't really done much in the NBA since the second half of his rookie season with the Kings, so even owners in deep leagues can leave him on the wire unless it's a desperation stream for Saturday.

Charlotte plans to sign Ray McCallum of Grand Rapids in the D-League to a 10-day contract.

McCallum played 31 games for the Spurs and 10 games for the Grizzlies in 2015-16. He had been playing well in the D-League this season. However, there is only minimal fantasy impact here, as McCallum is unlikely to see anything more than spot minutes.

The Pistons will waive G Ray McCallum, according to Vincent Ellis of The Detroit Free Press.

McCallum will be waived in order to clear a roster spot for Beno Udrih, whom the Pistons just grabbed off waivers after he was cut by Miami.

Ray McCallum has won a spot on Detroit's final roster.

McCallum beat out Lorenzo Brown for the third-string point guard spot. He'll begin the season as Ish Smith's backup given Reggie Jackson (knee) will be sidelined to start the campaign.

Ray McCallum and Lorenzo Brown are battling for the final roster spot in Detroit.

"It's just everything," Van Gundy said of the evaluation process. "Every day is one more piece to evaluate on. Like I've said — it's a tough decision. I think they are both NBA players, and I don't think there's any doubt about that. We're lucky to have them and we're lucky to have that decision to make." Van Gundy likely won't make an official decision until Sunday, but neither guy will be worth drafting in most leagues.

Stan Van Gundy said that choosing between backup PGs Lorenzo Brown and Ray McCallum will be "a difficult decision."

"We really liked what Lorenzo had done in Summer League ... but wanted to be in a situation where we could have some guys come into camp and compete," Van Gundy said. "Always liked Ray. He can really, really get down and guard ... so far it has been a good battle." No matter which player makes the cut, they're out of the equation in fantasy leagues while Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith are healthy.

Ray McCallum may be trailing Lorenzo Brown in the fight for a spot on the Pistons' regular season roster.

According to beat writer Rod Beard of The Detroit News, "Brown had a good Summer League, and with his familiarity with the offense, looks to be ahead of Ray McCallum Jr." Stan Van Gundy was non-committal when asked about the two PGs, both of whom are vying for a third-string job behind Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith.

The Pistons have officially signed Ray McCallum.

He didn't crack the rotation in San Antonio last season and ended up with the Grizzlies on a pair of 10-day contracts. McCallum could be the third-string PG in Detroit with a strong training camp, but he won't be relevant in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 11:51:00 AM

Ray McCallum is expected to sign with the Pistons.

Detroit has been in the market for a third-string point guard, but McCallum would have to beat out Lorenzo Brown in order to take that job. Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith are locked in at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively on the depth chart. There is no fantasy spin here.
Mon, Jul 25, 2016 12:52:00 PM

The Grizzlies will not keep Ray McCallum for the remainder of the season.

His second 10-day contract has expired and the Grizzlies will sign Bryce Cotton to a 10-day deal. McCallum didn't play well in Memphis, but he's still young and should get another shot to make an NBA roster.

Ray McCallum made 5-of-13 from the field for 10 points with one rebound, four assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

He is going to remain on the Grizzlies for the rest of this month, but he probably hasn't done enough to be signed for the season after that. McCallum hasn't done enough in fantasy to warrant a pickup.
Tue, Mar 29, 2016 12:19:00 AM

Ray McCallum made 3-of-10 from the field for seven points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's played some ugly ball. McCallum will lose more playing time to Jordan Farmar and can be dropped in most leagues. There's almost no chance he makes it past his second 10-day.
