Warriors sign G/F Jason Kapono.

He is already taking part in team 3-point competitions. Kapono is unlikely to make the rotation because the Warriors don't exactly need to bolster their range from beyond the arc.
Oct 4 - 5:25 PM

Jason Kapono is still not signed with the Warriors.

He has not received clearance from FIBA because he played overseas. Kapono has a sharp-shooter earlier in his career, but he's probably not going to make the team.
Oct 4 - 12:04 PM

Jason Kapono has reportedly agreed to a training camp deal with the Warriors.

Kapono has been out of the league since the 2011-12 season, and he was pretty horrible that year, averaging 2.0 points on 38.2 percent shooting from the field, and 29.6 percent from beyond the arc. He's not likely to make the official roster, and he's not on the fantasy radar in any format.
Sep 26 - 5:56 PM

Former NBA marksman Jason Kapono has signed with Panathinaikos in Greece.

Kapono, a two-time winner of the All-Star 3-point shooting contest, appeared in just 27 games last year.

Unrestricted FA Jason Kapono has been working out with the Spurs.

Kapono was an absolute embarrassment last season for the Lakers before being traded to the Cavs, where he was eventually bought out. Kapono averaged 2.0 points on 38.2 percent shooting and managed just 29.6 percent from behind the arc while with Los Angeles.

Cavs waive G/F Jason Kapono.

Kapono was included in the Ramon Sessions trade to make the deal work, and was expected to be waived the entire time. He'll likely sign with a playoff-bound team, providing capable perimeter shooting in a minimal bench role.

The Cavaliers are expected to waive Jason Kapono, who they acquired in the Ramon Sessions trade.

Kapono will become a free agent, but hasn't done much on the court in the past couple seasons.
Fri, Mar 16, 2012 08:14:00 PM

The Cavs acquired Jason Kapono as part of the Ramon Sessions trade.

Kapono has appeared in just 51 games over the last two seasons due to ineffectiveness. He's unlikely to crack Cleveland's rotation on the wing.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 04:40:00 PM

Jason Kapono (personal) returned to action on Friday and played four minutes with just one turnover to his stat line.

We'll let you know if Kapono finds the floor to hit some threes, but otherwise he can be ignored in all formats.

Jason Kapono (personal) returned to Lakers practice on Friday.

Kapono is back with the team after the birth of his twin girls on Tuesday. He shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters.
Fri, Jan 13, 2012 03:38:00 PM

Jason Kapono will sit out again on Wednesday, following the birth of his twin girls.

Kapono's absence shouldn't impact any fantasy rosters.
Wed, Jan 11, 2012 03:05:00 PM

Jason Kapono will miss Tuesday's game due to the birth of his twin girls on Tuesday.

He'll also be very iffy for Wednesday night in Utah, not that it matters in fantasyland.

Jason Kapono made his Lakers debut in Monday's exhibition game against the Clippers, hitting two threes on his way to nine points, two rebounds, and an assist in 18 minutes.

If Kapono plays more than 15 minutes per game we'll be shocked, but he could be worth picking up at some point for owners trolling for threes. Regardless, owners shouldn't burn a draft pick on that type of value.
Tue, Dec 20, 2011 02:19:00 AM

Free agent 3-point shooter Jason Kapono signed a one-year deal with the Lakers on Friday.

Kapono could be worth a look for owners in deep leagues trolling for threes, but first check out the Lakers' training camp rotations and the like. It's not worth drafting Kapono for those purposes until you're sure he's actually going to see the court.
