The Suns are convinced they can play T.J. Warren next to Josh Jackson.

This isn't surprising to hear and coach Earl Watson said he thinks Jackson can play all five positions. Tucker has also played shooting guard, small forward and power forward with the Suns, so it makes sense on his end. However, it may be tough to start both with Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe, Marquese Chriss and whoever they start at center as four of their starting five. It could make sense to bring Warren off the bench, which would hurt his fantasy value.

Coach Earl Watson believes Josh Jackson can play all five positions for the Suns.

The quotes were flying in Phoenix on Friday. The 6'8" forward also threw his hat in the ring for Player Hater of the Year. "Oh I'm gonna hate everybody but the Phoenix Suns, don't worry," Jackson said. Also, the Celtics may also not like Jackson because general manager Ryan McDonough hinted that he and Jackson's people formulated a plan to skip the workout for the Celtics "playing by the rules." In other words, it sounds like Jackson preferred to go to Phoenix because of his playing time on a young team rather than go to a team where he knew he'd be down the depth chart. Expect Jackson to get 24-30 minutes out of the gate and make a fantasy impact.

President Magic Johnson said Lonzo Ball is "the new face of the Lakers."

Magic also added he hopes Ball doesn't break all of his records. General manager Rob Pelinka said Ball has the ability to be an All-Defensive player because of his length, assuming Ball can commit to film study. While he does have a funky delivery on his jumper, his release is as quick as anyone to offset the long path in his delivery, so his shot could still work in the league. Vegas has him as the favorite for Rookie of the Year and it's for good reason.

Chris Paul has informed the Clippers he is declining his option to become an unrestricted free agent, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

This has been expected for a long time as CP3 looks to get another long-term deal. Of course, there are the rumors of Paul looking to join the Spurs while there has also been some talk of him looking at the Rockets or Nuggets. Paul is past his prime at age 32, but his style of play should translate much longer than other point guards who rely so much on athleticism.

The Pacers have declined the $4 million team option on Lavoy Allen.

It's not surprising as the Pacers get ready to rebuild. Allen showed he could play both big spots for the Pacers, but most teams may not want the 6'9" Allen as a backup big for next season. He's still likely to get some interest at age 28.

Blake Griffin has opted out of the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

It's a fairly expected move for the former All-Star. Griffin can earn up to a five-year, $175 million deal with the Clippers, or he could get up to a four-year, $130 million offer with another team. There is some uncertainty with the Clippers now that all of their stars have rumors of being on other teams. Considering the Celtics didn't do anything yet, they're someone to watch.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said the starting center position will be an "open competition."

It'll likely be Jarrett Allen vs. Timofey Mozgov for the starting spot. Obviously the Nets aren't exactly going for it as they rebuild through the draft, so that should give Allen an advantage. At Texas, Allen's Longhorns were very slow with their 252nd-ranked pace in the nation, so that'll be an adjustment for him. Still, the Nets were demolished inside last year and Atkinson should be able how to use Allen's 7'5" wingspan on both ends. He's a sleeper to watch in deep fantasy leagues.

The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo.

The Kings added some really nice perimeter depth on Thursday with De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Frank Mason. Plus, they could also be adding Bogdan Bogdanovic for next year, so they may have several new pieces to their backcourt compared to the start of the 2016-17 season. As for Afflalo, he is still 31 and he may be looking to join a contender next year.
