Kendrick Perkins made his Cavaliers debut on Tuesday with two points in two minutes of action off the bench.
Perkins signed with the Cavs for a chance to win a championship alongside LeBron James. "I know I probably won’t ever make an All-Star game," he said, "so the only thing on my mind is trying to win a championship." Perkins, who absolutely won't be an All-Star, is expected to fill a minor role as emergency depth behind Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. There's no fantasy upside here. Feb 24 - 10:30 PM

Updating a previous report, the Cavs have officially signed Kendrick Perkins, and he will be available for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Perkins needed 19 minutes of floor time to put in his averages of 4.0 points and 5.5 rebounds this season. There's basically no way he gets close to that amount of playing time as a reserve in Cleveland, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

The Cavs are hopeful that Kendrick Perkins contract/paperwork will be completed in time to be able to suit up for Tuesday's game against Detroit.

If Perkins' paperwork is not completed in time for Tuesday's game, his Cavs’ debut will have to come Thursday vs. the Warriors. However, he'll be buried in the Cavs’ rotation, and there are no guarantees he even leaves the bench when he is in uniform. Perkins' days of relevancy in standard leagues are long behind him, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all formats.

LeBron James said he's excited to have Kendrick Perkins join the Cavaliers.

"I didn't know who he was choosing between, all I cared about was that he was gonna pick us," James said of the Cavs' newest addition. Perkins is a classic example of helping his real-life team a lot more than his fantasy owners. While he'll help provide the Cavs with another big body, his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

Kendrick Perkins is expected to have his physical on Monday, and there's a chance that he could play against the Pistons on Tuesday.

The Cavaliers brought him in simply to have another big body to bring off the bench, and his role is likely going to be very limited. Perkins belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 22 - 11:59 AM

Kendrick Perkins has committed to the Cavs.

The Cavs add another big man here, but it shouldn't have much of an impact in their rotation. Coach David Blatt has figured out a nice, tight big-man rotation with Kevin Love, Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. Perkins may get 10 minutes of playing time or so, but he's not a fantasy option.
Feb 21 - 4:14 PM

The Cavaliers are the frontrunners to sign Kendrick Perkins according to Yahoo Sports.

Perkins is expected to be waived by the Jazz as soon as Saturday, while other teams such as the Clippers, Mavericks and Bulls are also said to be interested. To be clear, Perkins won't have any real fantasy value no matter where he ends up, as teams simply want him to clog up the paint. Leave Perkins on the wire.
Feb 21 - 11:21 AM

Updating a previous report, the Bulls, Mavs, Clippers, and Cavs have reportedly all expressed interest in adding Kendrick Perkins once his buyout with the Jazz is complete.

At this point in his career Perkins is nothing more than a big body, and as we stated before, he is not going to have any fantasy value in any league regardless of where he lands.
Feb 19 - 7:35 PM

The Cavs and Clippers are reportedly "strong contenders" to sign Kendrick Perkins once his buyout is completed with the Jazz.

Perkins is destined for a backup role, and he isn't going to have any relevancy in fantasy leagues regardless of where he lands. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 19 - 4:52 PM

Kendrick Perkins has been acquired by the Utah Jazz and is expected to have his contract bought out.

Perkins was acquired by the Jazz as part of the Enes Kanter deal, but is expected to be bought out according to sources. The Clippers and Cavs are expected to make a play for Perkins' services and other playoff contenders will likely join the mix. While Perk will help solidify someone's frontcourt, he won't see enough minutes to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 19 - 3:15 PM

Kendrick Perkins will start against the Nuggets on Monday.

He is coming off a suspension and will start in place of Steven Adams. Mitch McGary has been ridiculous on the offensive glass in his brief career and he'll be worth watching tonight. Perkins can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 7:42 PM

Kendrick Perkins will be suspended one game for head-to-head contact with Tyreke Evans on Friday.

He deserved a suspension for head butting Evans after the play was over. As a result, Perkins won't play against the Clippers in Sunday afternoon's national game. The Thunder are going to need to count on Steven Adams a little more at center while Serge Ibaka could also get some run at the five. Obviously, Perkins isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 7 - 3:54 PM

Kendrick Perkins moved into the starting lineup on Sunday, where he posted four points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes.

Perkins earned the surprise start with Steven Adams (migraine) out of commission, and this does nothing to improve his fantasy outlook. The waiver wire is Perk's permanent residence.
Jan 25 - 7:22 PM

Kendrick Perkins benefitted from Orlando's awful defense on Sunday, coming off the bench for 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist and one steal.

He logged 22 minutes and doesn't do nearly enough to warrant ownership in typical fantasy leagues, averaging 4.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 19 minutes while backing up Steven Adams (five points in 18 minutes).
Jan 18 - 8:46 PM

Kendrick Perkins could be traded to the Nets in the Brook Lopez deal.

This has been the talk of the evening in a deal that would send Lopez to OKC, Lance Stephenson to Brooklyn, and Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte. There is a decent chance Perkins and his expiring contract would be bought out. There's no need to add him anywhere.
