    Warriors' Briante Weber: Still with Golden State, recalled from D-League
    40m ago

    Updating a previous report, the Golden State Warriors have yet to decide whether or not to sign Briante Weber for the rest of the season when his second 10-day contract expires Wednesday. He's was recalled Tuesday from the D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce.

    Weber represented Sioux Falls in the D-League All-Star Game on Saturday, during which he tallied four points, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes. The Warriors are expected to determine Weber's future with the team now that he's back with the big club. Even if he ends up sticking with the Warriors the rest of the way, Weber is unlikely to see much more than garbage-time minutes in games as the team's third- or fourth-string point guard.

    Heat's Okaro White: Recalled from D-League

    Okaro White was recalled from the D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Tuesday.

    The Miami Heat sent White to the D-League to allow him to participate in the D-League All-Star Game over the weekend, but he'll now return to Miami in advance of Friday's game against the Hawks. In 14 games for the Heat this season, White is averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game.

    Briante Weber: Second 10-day deal expires
    3h ago

    Briante Weber 's second 10-day contract with the Warriors expired Tuesday and the point guard won't be re-signed by the team for the remainder of the season, Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Weber had a number of teams interested in his services when D-League players became eligible to sign 10-day contracts with NBA clubs a few weeks earlier, but the 24-year-old settled on the Warriors with the hope of contending for a title. While he made five appearances over the course of his two 10-day deals, Weber only averaged 1.6 points and shot 30 percent from the field in 8.2 minutes per game, and apparently didn't do enough in practices either to prove himself deserving of being signed for the rest of the season. He'll likely now stick with the D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce before potentially latching on with another NBA team as a depth option in the backcourt.

    Rockets' Kyle Wiltjer: Assigned to D-League

    Kyle Wiltjer was assigned to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Wiltjer was promoted to the Houston Rockets in advance of their final game before the All-Star break Feb. 15 against the Heat, but the undrafted rookie out of Gonzaga failed to see the floor. Since Wiltjer was unlikely to crack the big club's rotation coming out of the break, he'll report back to Rio Grande Valley in search of regular playing time. He's been one of the Vipers' top scoring options this season with an average of 20.1 points per game.

The duo will now head back to Rio Grande Valley in search of more regular run. Onuaku ranks fifth in the D-League in rebounds per game (10.5) and second in field-goal percentage (65.8%) on the season.

    Clippers' Chris Paul: Plans to re-sign on long-term deal
    3h ago

    Chris Paul has reached a verbal agreement with the Los Angeles Clippers to re-sign with the team on a new long-term contract this summer, Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report reports.

    While the Clippers could be at risk of losing Blake Griffin in free agency this summer, it appears the team will be able to keep their other star in the fold. Paul carries a $24.2 million player option for the 2017-18, but he's expected to decline the option and take advantage of the likely league-wide salary-cap increase, which will be determined once the new collective bargaining agreement goes into effect during the offseason. The terms of Paul's reported deal with the Clippers aren't known and won't be official until he puts pen to paper in July, but he's expected to earn more than $200 million with the new contract.

    Senators' Casey Bailey: Working on checking line Tuesday

    Casey Bailey is slotted with veterans Chris Neil and Tommy Wingels on the fourth line for Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    Bailey will bang with the checking line against New Jersey and he isn't likely to see a ton of minutes as a result. Steer clear of him for fantasy purposes unless he is able to make a splash and carve out a larger role for himself with Mike Hoffman (groin), Bobby Ryan (finger) and Mark Stone (neck) nursing injuries.

    Max McCormick is projected to work on the team's third line alongside Chris Kelly and Jean-Gabriel Pageau in Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    The AHL recall is likely to see plenty of minutes and he is working with a talented group of veterans. While he doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration in seasonal leagues, he could be a solid one-off DFS option helping out with a minimal salary. His inclusion to your lineup will allow you to load up on stud skaters at other positions.

    Nathan Bastian tallied a goal and an assist in OHL Mississauga's 5-3 win over Owen Sound on Monday.

    Bastian signed his entry-level contract with the New Jersey Devils in October, but he has just 13 goals and 41 points in 47 games for the Steelheads. He's a big body (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) who excels at winning battles on the wall, but he has limited offensive ability. The odds are no better than 50/50 that he turns into a regular at the NHL level.

    Senators' Zack Smith: Will work on second line Tuesday

    Zack Smith is projected to work on the team's second scoring line with Derick Brassard and Curtis Lazar in Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    The Ottawa Senators are banged up at forward with Mike Hoffman (groin), Bobby Ryan (finger) and Mark Stone (neck) each sidelined with ailments. It's a golden opportunity for Smith to work as a top-six forward and log plenty of minutes. He can help fantasy owners in deeper pools with occasional points, penalty minutes, hits and plus-minus rating.

    Curtis Lazar is projected to work on the team's second scoring line with Derick Brassard and Zack Smith Tuesday against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    Lazar has produced just one assist all season, and recently he has been a healthy scratch. With Mike Hoffman (groin), Bobby Ryan (finger) and Mark Stone (neck) sidelined, he'll get an opportunity to showcase his talents and prove his worth to his organization, and perhaps to other organizations as well, as we approach the NHL trade deadline. He still doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration outside of the very deepest of pools.

    Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Not guaranteed 25-man roster spot
    28m ago

    Carlos Estevez is not a lock for a spot in the Colorado Rockies bullpen to start the season, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

    The young reliever spent a chunk of the summer as Colorado's closer, converting 11 of 18 save opportunities. However, his 5.24 ERA left much to be desired, and given the multitude of veteran options brought in to bolster the bullpen, Estevez is on the fringe of the major league roster. It seems most likely that the 24-year-old will start the year at Triple-A Albuquerque and shuttle up to the big leagues as needed.

    Redskins' Su'a Cravens: Moving to safety
    1h ago

    Su'a Cravens will spend his offseason adjusting to his new role at safety for the Washington Redskins , JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.

    In his rookie season, Cravens totaled 34 tackles, five pass deflections, one sack, and one interception in 11 games at linebacker. The 21-year-old (6'1, 222-pounds) will now make the move to safety in his second season, a role he gained experience in during his time at USC. With veterans Duke Ihenacho and Donte Whitner heading into free agency and DeAngelo Hall (knee) still recovering from an ACL tear, it seems more likely than not that Cravens will head into the season as a starting safety. What the former linebacker lacks in speed, he makes up for in intelligence and tackling ability. Look for more updates on his transition to come throughout the offseason.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Multi-year contract unlikely before March 1
    1h ago

    Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins aren't expected to reach terms of a multi-year contract prior to the franchise tag deadline on March 1, The Washington Post reports.

    For the second consecutive offseason, the Redskins are expected to use their franchise tag on Cousins, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, which would be accompanied by a cap commitment of $23.94 million for the 2017 campaign. Holding leverage over the organization due to lacking QB talent on their roster, nary an equivalent option on the upcoming free-agent market, and an underwhelming draft class, Cousins has significant leverage in contract negotiations once the tender is signed. If the preceding comes to fruition, the parties will have until July 15 to reach agreement on a long-term deal, with Cousins' representation fully aware of his value due to the new surroundings for Tony Romo (potentially) and Brian Hoyer, among other signal-callers.

Soliai will look to find work as a run-stopper on an NFL roster in the coming months. He recorded only eight combined tackles in 2016, but has a big body to plug up lanes and allow other defenders to make plays, making him a valuable commodity.
