Player News - Pelicans

Date: Team: Pos:

The Pelicans have an agreement with E'Twaun Moore on a four-year, $34 million deal.

Moore had himself a really nice season as a combo guard and stepped up while the Bulls dealt with injuries. He had by far his best year from an efficiency standpoint, making career-highs 48.1 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from deep for his 7.5 points per game. The 27-year-old guard should provide some depth to the second unit, but doesn't have much fantasy value.

Eric Gordon finished his meeting with the Grizzlies.

He will also meet with the Knicks. Even after the Grizzlies gave Mike Conley and Chandler Parsons enough money to match the GDP of a small country, they still have around $8 million left in cap space. Gordon is quite injury prone, so the Grizzlies better invest some money on their medical staff.
Jul 1 - 8:58 PM

The Rockets will meet with unrestricted free agent Ryan Anderson Saturday morning.

They have been working to get a meeting and they have it now. Anderson should be able to get a hefty deal based on some of these previous contracts. Plus, the Rockets will make good use of Anderson's 3-point shooting.
Jul 1 - 5:08 PM

The Pelicans have a verbal agreement on a four-year, $52 million deal with unrestricted free agent Solomon Hill.

He saw a big uptick in minutes during the postseason and he still has some room to grow at age 25. Hill is wildly inconsistent, he was out of the rotation earlier in the year, and he's just a career 40.9 percent shooter from the field. The Pelicans likely knew they couldn't get an expensive small forward, so they'll give Hill a chance. He could find himself getting minutes next season.
Jul 1 - 4:15 PM

Solomon Hill has been linked to the Jazz, Grizzlies, Mavericks and Bulls.

He's generating a lot of interest for a player who averaged 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game last season. Regardless of where Hill lands, it's tough to imagine him having any legitimate fantasy value.
Jul 1 - 11:57 AM

The Wolves have reached out to free agent guard E'Twaun Moore.

He's drawing interest from several teams including the Bucks, but the Bulls will make it a priority to bring him back. The Bulls are still the favorites to re-sign him at this point, and that's probably the best thing for his fantasy value considering he would be competing for minutes with Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon and Spencer Dinwiddie.
Jul 1 - 10:44 AM

Unrestricted free agent Eric Gordon "has emerged as Knicks' top perimeter target," according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The report adds the sides are "starting to discuss parameters of a possible deal." Derrick Rose reportedly reached out to Gordon, who joins Rose with a slew of injuries in his last few seasons. The Knicks are reportedly going to throw a lot of money at Joakim Noah, but the good news is they'll get some help at their two biggest needs. Gordon would lose fantasy value with the Knicks compared to last season.
Jul 1 - 2:36 AM

The Magic have reportedly expressed interest in signing unrestricted free agent Eric Gordon.

The Knicks, Rockets and Grizzlies will also be in the mix to land the oft-injured guard, but the Pelicans have said they won't make a strong push to re-sign him. The talent is there, but Gordon just can't ever seem to stay healthy. He'll be a risky guy to spend a draft pick on next season.
Jun 30 - 6:30 PM

The Rockets are reportedly working towards getting a face-to-face meeting with unrestricted free agent Ryan Anderson.

Anderson would be an amazing fit in Mike D'Antoni's system, so the Rockets may be one of the more realistic teams to nab the stretch-four during free agency. The Jazz, Nets, Lakers, Wizards, Grizzlies and Kings are also said to be in pursuit of Anderson, but Houston and Brooklyn would make for the best fit in terms of fantasy hoops.
Jun 30 - 5:09 PM

The Knicks are reportedly interested in free agent Eric Gordon.

The Knicks have a big need for a shooting guard and the injury-prone Gordon played AAU with Derrick Rose, so this potential signing could make a lot of sense. While Gordon is a risky draft day selection, he did averaged 15.2 points, 2.7 assists, 2.2 rebounds, 1.0 steals, and 2.5 three-pointers last season and could be a late-round steal if he ends up signing with the Knicks and staying healthy.
Jun 30 - 9:37 AM

The Utah Jazz are reportedly interested in Ryan Anderson.

The Jazz have also been rumored to be interested in Luol Deng and Solomon Hill, but the Jazz plan to be aggressive in pursuing Anderson as well. We'll keep an eye on the unrestricted free agent as July 1 approaches, but Anderson would likely come off the bench for the Jazz so signing in Utah wouldn't necessarily be the best thing for his fantasy value.
Jun 30 - 9:20 AM

Alonzo Gee will become an unrestricted free agent after declining his player option with the Pelicans.

Gee's season ended in late March with a torn right quad muscle, finishing his seventh NBA season with modest averages of 4.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.9 steals in 22.2 minutes per game. With the salary cap rising a minimum contract would represent a raise from his $1.4 million player option and (if he's healthy enough to compete at training camp) Gee stands a good chance of securing a guaranteed deal.
Jun 29 - 10:58 PM

The Pelicans will not give James Ennis a qualifying offer.

Ennis will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, though the Pelicans reportedly "would like to bring him back if [the] numbers work out." New Orleans could have retained the right to match any contract by giving Ennis a $1.2 million qualifying offer, and their decision not to doesn't bode well for his future in Louisiana.
Jun 29 - 8:59 PM

The Pelicans have extended a qualifying offer to Tim Frazier.

Frazier had an impressive run filling in as the starting point guard for New Orleans towards the end of the season when most of the team was injured, but he's not going to be able to replicate those numbers next season when everyone comes back healthy. New Orleans will have the ability to match any offer Frazier signs on the open market, and with how good of a fit he was with the Pelicans, it would be surprising to see them let him go.
Jun 29 - 11:59 AM

The Lakers, Rockets, Wizards, Grizzlies and Kings are all reportedly in the running to sign Ryan Anderson as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The Rockets aggressively pursued Anderson at the trade deadline this past season, and the fantasy prospects of Anderson playing in Mike D'Antoni's system is quite alluring. Anderson also had the Wizards on his wish list of preferred teams to go to at the deadline, so the interest there is mutual. Anderson is reportedly looking to join a playoff contender, so if the Lakers or Kings truly want him, they'll likely have to overpay. For what it's worth, Anderson was born and raised in Sacramento.
