Eric Moreland recorded his first career double-double on Wednesday with 10 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes off the Pistons bench.
Two words are sufficient to explain Moreland's outburst tonight -- garbage time. The scoring, rebounds and assists were all career-highs, and five of Moreland's dimes came with the game already decided in the fourth quarter. This is worth remembering, but shouldn't prompt anyone to pick him up. Feb 28 - 11:38 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said that he plans to give Eric Moreland additional playing time going forward, as the Pistons play six games over the next nine days.

Van Gundy said he "wants to give Drummond and Griffin a break and spread the minutes around." Moreland is averaging 1.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game this season. Even if he sees 15-plus minutes a night over the next two weeks, that's not enough to make an impact in fantasy. He should be left on waivers.
Feb 24 - 1:39 PM

Eric Moreland set a career-high with five assists on Saturday, adding three points and five rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench.

Moreland had two turnovers but generally looked good, and he made some smart passes from the high post tonight. This will help him hold off Boban Marjanovic (DNP-CD) for backup-center minutes, but he's not a fantasy asset while Andre Drummond is healthy.
Jan 13 - 11:48 PM

Eric Moreland played nine minutes off the bench on Monday, going scoreless with two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Moreland made a fill-in start on Saturday for Andre Drummond (ribs), but he predictably saw his role dwindle with Drummond back in action tonight. He belongs on the wire.
Jan 8 - 11:45 PM

Eric Moreland scored eight points with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

The Rockets did pull a Hack-A-Moreland in the fourth, but it didn't work with him making both. Andre Drummond (rib) is only day-to-day and Moreland doesn't have much upside despite what this stat line says. We'd rather add Boban over Moreland here.
Jan 6 - 11:14 PM

Eric Moreland will start on Saturday against the Rockets.

Coach Stan Van Gundy doesn't like Boban Marjanovic out there against floor-spacing teams, so that explains this one. Moreland is still a risky play and you could say the same for Boban.
Jan 6 - 6:56 PM

Eric Moreland did not score in 12 minutes on Friday against the 76ers with five rebounds and one assist.

In the first quarter, Boban Marjanovic did leapfrog him, but Moreland got the garbage time. The fantasy world will be rooting for Boban to stay ahead of Moreland.
Jan 5 - 9:23 PM

Eric Moreland logged 18 minutes during Wednesday's loss in Miami, going scoreless with five rebounds and one steal.

Andre Drummond (ribs) was out tonight, so Moreland picked up minutes behind starter Boban Marjanovic, but Drummond could return as soon as Friday. Moreland has now failed to score in four straight games, which about sums up his non-existent fantasy appeal.
Jan 4 - 12:12 AM

Eric Moreland (illness) was absent from morning shootaround but is expected to play Tuesday vs. Denver.

Moreland is averaging just 1.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game backing up Andre Drummond this season.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 12:38:00 PM

Eric Moreland didn't take any shots on Friday with three rebounds, two turnovers and three fouls in 12 minutes against the Wizards.

He's currently the No. 2 center with Boban Marjanovic getting an inactive today. Boban DFS support group meets on Thursday. Punch and pie will be served. As for Moreland, he won't play enough to have value in almost any league.

Pistons PF Eric Moreland acknowledged that he's had a "real bad mental state about free throws," but he thinks those problems are behind him.

Moreland shot 37.7 percent from the line for the Canton Charge last season, while averaging an impressive 12.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.7 blocks and 1.7 steals in 33.4 minutes per game. He has a non-guaranteed three-year deal with Detroit and it would take a few injuries for him to help fantasy owners, regardless of his success on free throws.

Eric Moreland's deal with the Pistons is for three years at the veteran's minimum.

The deal won't be fully guaranteed until July of 2019, so he will still have to impress at training camp to stick around. "I’m not even thinking about dates or anything like that or how it’s structured," Moreland said. "I’m going out and doing what I do best." The 6'10" forward only has 11 NBA games under his belt with the Kings, but he was named an NBA G-League All-Star last season with averages of 12.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.7 blocks, 1.7 steals and 33.4 minutes. He will open the season as the third-string center behind Andre Drummond and Boban Marjanovic, so he's not on the fantasy radar for now.

The Cavaliers have waived forward Eric Moreland.

They had to waive him in order to make room for Toney Douglas. We'll let you know if Moreland latches on with another team before the preseason ends.

Eric Moreland has reportedly signed a training camp deal with the Cavs.

The Cavs do have roster space, so there's a chance Moreland could earn himself a deal for the veteran's minimum in Cleveland. However, even if he does manage to last past training camp, his fantasy value will be non-existent while the team is at full strength.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 04:32:00 PM

The Cavaliers are interested in bringing in Eric Moreland for training camp, according to David Pick.

Moreland would be nothing more than a camp invite for the Cavaliers, but Pick reports the 24-year-old is on Cleveland's radar. While Moreland could hook on as a bench player for the Cavs, he wouldn't carry any fantasy value.
