Tim Hardaway wasn't happy when Jeff Hornacek was fired as the Knicks head coach, but he's buying what defensively-minded coach David Fizdale is selling.

"He’s respected around the league,’’ Hardaway said. "He does bring that type of vibe and character around the team that makes you want to go out there and compete each and every day for him. That’s what we love about him." Hardaway should be one of the top scoring options for the Knicks this season after posting eighth-round fantasy value last season, but might have a hard time finding others to agree with his thoughts on the Knicks making the playoffs this year. "I see my team making the playoffs with coach Fiz and his new style of play and his attention to detail and holding everyone accountable. I feel we can get there."

Chandler Parsons is expected to be the third-string power forward for the Grizzlies, according to official team reporter Michael Wallace.

Yikes. That should put him behind JaMychal Green and Jaren Jackson Jr. Wallace adds that Parsons insists that his knees are in great shape, and an earlier report this summer said Parsons' knees are as good as they have been in three years. Either way, Parsons has some major work to do to earn minutes in the rotation.

Jayson Tatum said Kobe Bryant helped him with his post moves.

Last season, Tatum recorded 44 post-up possessions as a 61st percentile scorer in that situation (Synergy), and he also passed well out of the post in his rookie season. Tatum's efficiency is in elite company as a rookie, and now he'll have a full offseason as a pro to learn from the coaches. After learning from Kobe and Drew Hanlen, Tatum could make another leap forward even with Gordon Hayward taking shots away from him.

Reggie Bullock is expected to remain in the starting lineup next season under new coach Dwane Casey.

Bullock started 52 games for the Pistons last season and posted career highs in minutes played, points, rebounds, assists, field-goal percentage and shooting percentage. Over his final 30 games of the season, Bullock averaged 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.6 treys. Bullock has a chance to crack the top-100 overall in 2018-19 if he improves slightly next season. He's an intriguing later-round sleeper.

According to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, Jon Leuer (knee) is expected to be ready by the season opener and the Pistons are "cautiously optimistic" that he will be ready by the start of training camp.

Leuer underwent right knee surgery on August 9th due to an injury that occurred during an offseason workout. He has continuously been battling the injury bug over the last year. Leuer missed all but eight games in 2017-18 due to a variety of injuries, including season-ending ankle surgery in January. It's good news that he should be ready for the start of the season, but he's still untrustworthy and not on the fantasy radar in standard leagues.

Josh Gray has reportedly reached an agreement to sign with the LG Sakers of the Korean Basketball League.

Gray appeared in five games for the Suns last season, averaging 6.4 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 17.3 minutes per contest. He spent most of the year with Phoenix's G-League affiliate.

Dion Waiters has been working out at the Heat’s facility, making progress in his rehab from ankle surgery.

Waiters underwent surgery back in January and was initially projected to be sidelined for 8-10 months. The fact he has been able to do on-court work is an encouraging sign and it appears he'll have a chance to be ready for the start of the season. However, his unfavorable injury history makes him an undesirable fantasy option.

The Heat believe James Johnson will be "consistently better" next season after undergoing surgery for a sports hernia.

Johnson averaged 12.8 points and 4.9 rebounds and shot 34.0 percent from downtown in 2016-17. The following summer, Miami inked him to a four-year, $60 million contract. Last season, he averaged 10.9 points and 4.8 rebounds and shot 30.8 percent on 3-pointers. His modest dip in production was due partly to his nagging injury. "It’s something that he played through last year and it affected him for sure," his agent, Mark Bartelstein, said of the sports hernia. JJ is expected to be ready for training camp and could be a value pick if he slips on draft day.
