Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored nine points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and one turnover against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He went to his fadeaway jumper a few times and showed a little more confidence in his offensive game than anticipated. Hollis-Jefferson is really going to have to figure out how to score in order to have a fantasy impact. Plus, his opportunity is nowhere near as great as it would have been in Portland. He's only on the radar in deep leagues for now.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Nets

The Nets have been actively shopping Joe Johnson over the past two days, according to sources of Mike Mazzeo.

The Nets have basically been "actively shopping" Johnson for the past two years, but it's hard to find any takers with his semi-ridiculous contract (he's owed $25.9 million next season). Johnson's numbers have been falling for three straight seasons, and he averaged 14.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.5 three-pointers during his 2014-15 campaign. Expect the decline to continue next year.

Thomas Robinson will sign with the Nets on a two-year deal worth around $3 million with a player option for the second season.

The Nets really wanted Robinson when he was cut from the Blazers last season, but the 76ers swooped in to grab him off waivers to get to the salary floor. The Nets lost Mason Plumlee in a trade, so this is a nice fit for the Nets. Plus, Truck helps on the offensive glass with so much perimeter scoring on BK. He's still only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Thomas Robinson is reportedly close to coming to terms on a two-year deal with the Nets.

With Brook Lopez a constant injury risk, the Nets need some depth in their frontcourt, and Robinson will provide them with that. However, he's unlikely to be a major part of Brooklyn's rotations, so he should not be targeted in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 2 - 5:45 PM

Shane Larkin has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $3 million deal with the Nets.

This is a rather strange move for Brooklyn as they already have Jarrett Jack, Deron Williams, and Steve Blake on the roster. Larkin is sure to pick up a lot of DNP-CDs if the current roster remains intact, and he won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues.
Jul 2 - 2:58 PM

The Wizards have shown interest in signing Alan Anderson, according to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post.

Anderson would provide the Wizards with some wing depth now that Paul Pierce will be a member of the Clippers for the 2015-16 season. The 32-year-old is coming off a season during which he averaged 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.0 three-pointers, so he wouldn't be much more than a second unit player with the Wiz and shouldn't be on the radar for fantasy owners in standard leagues.
Jul 2 - 9:46 AM

Thaddeus Young has agreed to a four-year, $50 million deal with the Nets.

The two sides quickly came to an agreement on Wednesday morning, and the Nets can feel about themselves after locking up Brook Lopez as well. With Mason Plumlee in Portland, Young is locked in as the starting power forward for the foreseeable future.
Jul 1 - 11:37 AM

Brook Lopez and the Nets have agreed upon a three-year contract worth $60 million.

This has been a foregone conclusion since a few hours after free agency began, as it appears BroLo didn't even contemplate leaving Brooklyn. The third year was originally reported as a player option, but that's not the case. The 27-year-old has All-Star talent and he's coming off a nice season in which he played 72 games, though his injury history still makes him a risky pick on draft day.
Jul 1 - 11:36 AM

According to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post, Mirza Teletovic is generating a lot of interest from teams in Europe.

Teletovic is a restricted free agent this summer, so the Nets can match any offer he receives from other NBA teams. It would definitely be surprising to see Teletovic head back to Europe, but the Nets have said that they want to bring him back. The market will dictate whether or not Brooklyn can afford to keep him, but Teletovic should garner plenty of interest due to his ability to stretch the floor.

Sergey Karasev's rehab from his March knee surgery could keep him from basketball activities until around September.

"It is difficult to give an accurate forecast," Karasev said. "Doctors say it could be the end of August and mid-September. We need to see how the knee reacts to the load. The main thing we are gradually moving towards this goal, and I feel the progress."

The Nets and Brook Lopez are finalizing a deal worth a reported $60 million over three years.

Brooklyn prioritized BroLo in free agency, particularly after trading away Mason Plumlee on draft night, and they quickly locked him up just hours into free agency. Lopez played 72 games last season, quelling concerns about his surgically-reconstructed foot, and he's a solid top-40 fantasy player when healthy. The deal reportedly gives Lopez a third-year player option, and it also includes "some protections for the Nets should a recurrence of Lopez's past foot issues sideline him again."
Jul 1 - 1:51 AM

The Brooklyn Nets will re-sign Thaddeus Young to a four-year, $50 million deal on Wednesday.

No surprises here. The Nets made it clear that re-signing Young was a priority this summer, and they didn't waste any time getting a deal done. The Nets recently traded Mason Plumlee to the Blazers, so Young should be locked in as the starting power forward next season. Young will be a solid mid-round pick in fantasy drafts this season.
Jul 1 - 1:49 AM

The Brooklyn Nets are nearing an agreement to re-sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young.

There doesn't appear to be any drama in Brooklyn right now, and it sounds like the Nets could have a deal in place for both players very soon. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year, $60 million deal, while Young is targeting a four-year, $50 million deal. Stay tuned.
Jul 1 - 12:48 AM

Earl Clark has been named to the Nets Summer League roster.

He'll try to prove his worth during Summer League, but he's not much more than a backup in the NBA. Clark owns career-averages of 4.4 points and 3.0 rebounds on 40.3 percent shooting from the field, which tells you pretty much all you need to know of his non-existent fantasy value.
Jun 30 - 6:54 PM

The Raptors are hiring Jerry Stackhouse as an assistant coach.

He played 18 years in the NBA and has recently been working for NBATV. Stackhouse was close to joining the Milwaukee coaching staff last summer, but he'll go north of the border for his first NBA coaching gig.
