Rockets waive F Josh Powell.
This move comes as no surprise as the Rockets try to trim down their roster before the start of the regular season. Powell may catch on with the Rockets' D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Vipers, but it should go without saying that he shouldn't be on any fantasy owners' draft boards.

Big man Josh Powell passed his physical and was signed by the Rockets on Tuesday.

He'll give them a little depth in the playoffs, but that's about it.

The Rockets plan to sign Josh Powell for the rest of the season.

The Rockets are looking to add another big man and would probably be best suited to get a player out of the NBA so he can be eligible for the playoffs. Powell has been out of the league since 2010-11 and has played on five teams since 2005-06. The 31-year-old big man was cut by the Knicks in training camp.

Former Lakers forward Josh Powell has reportedly signed with Guangdong in China.

Powell attended training camp with the Knicks this summer but wasn't able to make the team, so he secured a contract overseas. He played in Greece last summer and there's a good chance his NBA career is over.

Free agent PF/C Josh Powell will attend training camp with the Knicks.

Powell hasn't played an NBA game since 2010-11 with the Hawks, when he averaged 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12 minutes per game. He had a quiet season for Olympiakos in Greece last season and won't be a fantasy asset no matter where he lands.

Former Lakers big man Josh Powell will work out for the Pelicans on Thursday, according to HoopsHype.

Powell played in Greece last year and China the year before. Even if he impresses the Pelicans, he's unlikely to earn more than an unguaranteed deal as a training camp body.

Josh Powell will play in Greece with Olympiacos.

Powell was in camp with the Spur, but he was cut just before the season began. After playing in China last season, Powell will spend another season abroad.

Spurs waive Josh Powell.

Powell, who spent some time in China during the lockout, was never expected to make the Spurs' regular season roster. The Celtics and Suns briefly considered him last March, and it's possible that injuries will open up a roster spot for him somewhere this season.

Spurs sign F/C Josh Powell to a non-guaranteed contract.

Powell will compete for a spot in training camp after spending last season in China. The team will also bring in Derrick Brown, Tyler Wilkerson and Wesley Witherspoon for camp.

Josh Powell is drawing interest from the Celtics and Suns.

There was a report in early March that Powell had signed in Switzerland, but he's reportedly back in the United States and "weighing his options." The Celtics make a lot more sense than the Suns with how desperate Boston currently is for size, but Powell won't have fantasy value no matter where he lands.

Josh Powell has signed with the Swiss team Neuchatel.

Powell previously spent time in China this season and could look to return to the NBA next year.

Josh Powell has signed with Liaoning in China.

Powell was an unrestricted free agent after spending last season with Atlanta, and he likely didn't want to risk of a consistent pay check by waiting for the labor dispute to be settled. Powell is one of those players that's far more valuable to his team than he is to any fantasy roster. The earliest we could see Powell in the NBA will be 2012-13, as there will be no out clauses in his contract. He joins Earl Clark and Wilson Chandler as players that have put pen to paper to play in the CBA.

Josh Powell was not suspended following his arrest before Saturday's game, and played six minutes with one rebound to his credit on Tuesday.

Clearly, he has no fantasy value in his limited role, even if you're in a 30-team league.
Wed, Mar 16, 2011 12:33:00 AM

Josh Powell was arrested on his way to the Hawks' game on Saturday, and as a result he did not play.

He failed to obey on officer when an emergency vehicle needed passage on a busy intersection, or at least that's what we know right now. This sounds minimal in the scheme of player arrests, and either way Powell has no fantasy value at this time.
Sat, Mar 12, 2011 10:45:00 PM

Josh Powell got his first action since being suspended by the Hawks for one game last week, playing seven minutes on his way to four points on 2-of-2 shooting, three rebounds, and one assist.

He was barely producing enough to be owned in a 30-team league before the trouble, and needless to say he's not worth watching, even in most deeper formats.
