Peyton Siva is expected to be signed on Monday for training camp but is not expected to make the season-opening roster.

He is simply going to serve as depth at the PG slot during training camp. According to Josh Robbins, "The team's plan is to waive them[Siva, Seth Curry, Drew Crawford, and Kadeem Batts] and, if they clear waivers, assign them to the Magic's D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks." Siva has no fantasy value until further notice.

The Magic have agreed to terms with free agent PG Peyton Siva, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Siva was waived by the Pistons last week and he's unlikely to have fantasy relevance in Orlando's backcourt. Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will start in the backcourt, with Devyn Marble, Luke Ridnour, Willie Green, Ben Gordon and Siva competing for reserve minutes.

Pistons waive G Peyton Siva.

He had almost no chance to make the team when the Pistons brought on D.J. Augustin, and they also drafted Spencer Dinwiddie. Siva may have a tough time making any NBA team next year due to his smaller size and lack of a jumper.
Jul 22 - 11:16 PM

Peyton Siva will not play on Wednesday due to a sore right hamstring.

He's basically playing for a roster spot, so this injury really hurts. Siva hasn't done much in his time with the Pistons and the deck is stacked against him after the Pistons used their first pick in guard Spencer Dinwiddie (knee).
Jul 9 - 7:07 PM

Pistons PG Peyton Siva didn't return to Tuesday's game after leaving with a sore hamstring.

The severity of the injury hasn't been determined, but it's a tough break for Siva as he attempts to impress new coach Stan Van Gundy and secure a backup role in Detroit. Will Bynum already presents a major hurdle to Siva's playing time, and the Pistons reportedly have interest in free agent PG Brian Roberts.

Coach Stan Van Gundy intimated Orlando Summer League would likely decide Peyton Siva's future with the Pistons.

His contract would be fully guaranteed on July 12 for next season. The Pistons now have four point guards with Brandon Jennings, Will Bynum, Siva and second-round pick Spencer Dinwiddie. Siva will need to have huge summer league to overcome his odds at this point.
Jun 28 - 10:16 AM

The Pistons have sent guard Peyton Siva to the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants of the D-League.

He's likely to be there for a couple of weeks to get some much needed playing time, while the Pistons will play just six games over the next 18 nights.

Pistons rookie Peyton Siva logged a career-high 14 minutes off the bench vs. Miami, finishing with two points, two rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.

His move up the rotation was sparked by the combined absence of Rodney Stuckey (knee), Chauncey Billups (knee) and Will Bynum (hamstring). That should say plenty about his lack of sustainable value.

Rookie PG Peyton Siva played under one minute during the Pistons' loss in L.A. on Sunday, despite the absence of both Chauncey Billups and Will Bynum.

Siva had a glimmer of promise to begin the season, when Brandon Jennings and Rodney Stuckey were both injured, but tonight's result neatly sums things up -- Siva is at the bitter end of Mo Cheeks' depth chart.

Rookie Peyton Siva could start at point guard in Detroit's season opener on Wednesday.

With Rodney Stuckey (thumb) and Brandon Jennings (oral surgery) potentially sidelined, coach Maurice Cheeks said he doesn't know who would start in the opener alongside the other likely backcourt starter, Chauncey Billups. Cheeks indicated that he'd prefer to keep Will Bynum in his role with the second unit, so Siva could very well end up starting Wednesday night if Stuckey and Jennings can't suit up. The rookie out of Louisville had his ups and downs in the preseason, but minutes are gold in fantasy basketball, so owners in deeper leagues may want to put Siva on their radars as a short-term fill-in.

With the Pistons backcourt gutted by injuries, rookie PG Peyton Siva racked up 12 points, four rebounds, seven assists, three steals and nine turnovers in 47 minutes.

The turnovers jump out and Siva showed some rookie warts throughout the game, but Detroit kept him out there with Will Bynum (food poisoning) joining Brandon Jennings (mouth) and Rodney Stuckey (finger) on the sidelines. Siva's role will dwindle and vanish as the Pistons' injured guards filter into the rotation.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 09:03:00 PM

Peyton Siva (calf) returned for the Pistons' short-handed backcourt in Saturday's victory, notching eight points with two assists and five turnovers in 15 minutes.

His return was well-timed given the absence of Brandon Jennings (wisdom teeth), Rodney Stuckey (finger), and Chauncey Billups (rest). The 6'0", 185 pound guard was the No. 56 pick of the 2013 draft and he's not currently on the fantasy radar.

Peyton Siva (calf) will not play against the Heat on Thursday night.

He's been dealing with a calf strain and has been out for over one week. Siva is unlikely to be in the rotation for his rookie season.

Peyton Siva (right calf) won't play in Tuesday's exhibition.

He strained his calf on Thursday and remains day-to-day. Though the injury isn't serious, the missed time makes it even more unlikely that he'll emerge as part of Detroit's deep backcourt rotation.
