Jazz waive five Saturday
The Jazz hacked away at their bloated preseason roster Saturday, in order to set the 15-man roster for the start of the season. Brian Cook, Dominic McGuire, Justin Holiday, Lester Hudson and Scott Machado were all cut Wednesday, after playing minor roles in the preseason.
Hudson joins GrizzliesNews: The Cavaliers parted ways with guard Lester Hudson early on Thursday, and it did not take long for Memphis to jump on him, as the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that the Grizzlies signed the former D-League player for the rest of the season, including the playoffs. Analysis: Hudson had stepped in for the Cavs when injuries hit, averaging 12.7 points per game in his 13 games, however with Kyrie Irving's return, the team had less of a need for him. He will likely provide the Grizzlies with some insurance as Gilbert Arenas deals with a torn ligament in his finger, and has no Fantasy value.
Cavs done with HudsonNews: Cavaliers guard Lester Hudson's second 10-day contract ran out on Wednesday night, and the club announced on Thursday that they would not re-sign him for the remainder of the year, making him a free agent. Analysis: Hudson had stepped in for the Cavs when injuries hit, averaging 12.7 points per game in his 13 games, however with Kyrie Irving's return, the team has less of a need for him. He is unlikely to catch on with another team before the season ends, so Fantasy owners can feel free to ignore him moving forward.
Hudson's run continuesNews: Cavaliers guard Lester Hudson was able to continue to his scoring surge during Tuesday night's contest against the Bobcats. Hudson scored 25 points in the 103-90 win on 9 of 18 shooting from the field, including going 2 for 7 from downtown. He scored 14 of his points in the fourth quarter and also added eight rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block to his stat line, while logging 36 minutes off the bench. "It's like I'm dreaming," Hudson said when asked if he's afraid he's going to wake up. Analysis: Hudson has now scored 74 points over his last three games, including a career high 26 points in Sunday's loss to the Nets. Not bad for a guy who played in China during the lockout and then for the Austin Toros before Cleveland signed him to a 10-day contract on March 30. He is now currently on his second 10-day contract but at this point we would be shocked if Cleveland didn't not ink him for the rest of the season. While he is a bit unknown, Fantasy owners -- especially in daily formats -- may want to take a flier on the 27-year-old over the final few weeks of the season.
Cavs extend HudsonNews: Coming off a pair of 20-point games, the Cavaliers have given guard Lester Hudson an additional 10-day contract on Monday. His previous 10-day deal expired on Sunday, when Hudson went for a career-high 26 points against the Nets, earning the praise of his coach, Byron Scott. "I'm pretty sure he'll be in a Cleveland uniform for the rest of the season," Scott said. "He's been fantastic for us." Analysis: Hudson has taken advantage of a myriad of injuries to the Cavaliers backcourt by tossing up double figures in three of the last four games, making a strong statement for an extended stay with the team. He will be with the team for another week and a half, so the former D-Leaguer may continue to provide a boost down the stretch if given opportunities.
