    Warriors waive Jason Kapono

    The Warriors waived guard/forward Jason Kapono following Friday's preseason finale. Kapono saw limited action during the preseason, averaging just 8.7 minutes per game. The nine-year veteran could look to latch on with another roster, though he said he'd return to his Danville home if he didn't make the final roster, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

  • Kapono waived by Cavaliers

    News: The Cavaliers waived forward Jason Kapono on Saturday. Kapono was acquired by Cleveland in a trade that sent Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers.
    Analysis: Kapono will now be able to sign wherever he wants, and some team is likely to covet his three-point shooting. Still, he hasn't been a worthwhile Fantasy option in years, so unless he gets into a very good situation, Kapono is unlikely to be a useful Fantasy pickup in any formats.
  • Report: Cavs to waive Kapono

    News: Yahoo.com is reporting that the Cavaliers plan to waive recently-acquired forward Jason Kapono. Kapono came to the Cavs in the Ramon Sessions trade on Thursday. He will become a free agent after the team waives him.
    Analysis: Kapono will be able to sign wherever he wants once he is a free agent, and some team is likely to covet his three-point shooting. Still, he hasn't been a worthwhile Fantasy option in years, so unless he gets into a very good situation, Kapono is unlikely to be a useful Fantasy pickup in any formats.
  • Kapono headed to Cleveland

    News: Yahoo! Sports reports that the Lakers traded forward Jason Kapono to the Cavs as part of the Ramon Sessions trade.
    Analysis: Kapono might get more playing time with the Cavaliers, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. His best asset is his shooting ability from the 3-point line, and he needs to be on the court getting minutes for that to happen.
  • Kapono giving Lakers little

    News: Lakers G Jason Kapono was a non-factor yet again on Thursday, scoring just two points in 11 minutes as the Lakers lost 98-87 to the Heat. He missed his only two three-point attempts, and had an assist in the game.
    Analysis: If Kapono's not making three-pointers, what's the point of having him? Right now he's shooting just 26.7 percent from three-point range and averaging 3.1 points per game. He should not be owned in any Fantasy league.
  • Kapono back with team

    News: Lakers F Jason Kapono returned to the team and is available for Friday's game against Cleveland. Kapono missed the team's past two games after his wife gave birth to twin daughters earlier this week.
    Analysis: Kapono has appeared in seven games for the Lakers and is averaging just 4.0 points per game this season. He is not receiving sufficient playing time to make him a worthwhile Fantasy option in any format for now.
  • Kapono still on personal leave

    News: The Lakers' official website reports Troy Murphy (stomach), Josh McRoberts (toe) and Jason Kapono (personal) will all sit out Wednesday against the Jazz.
    Analysis: Kapono also missed Tuesday's game as his wife gave birth to twin daughters. This might be the last game Kapono misses before returning to the team. Still, his absence isn't being felt in Fantasy formats since Kapono has no value when active.
  • Kapono misses game for L.A.

    News: Lakers forward Jason Kapono missed Tuesday's game against the Suns to be with his wife for the birth of his twin daughters.
    Analysis: Kapono is averaging just 4.0 points so far this season. He has played in seven games for the Lakers. Fantasy owners should continue to ignore Kapono as he holds minimal value at this time.
  • Kapono officially signs with Lakers

    News: The Lakers officially signed F Jason Kapono to a one-year deal on Friday. "I've always wanted to play here," Kapono said earlier this week. "I grew up watching Pat Riley and I wanted to be like James Worthy and Michael Cooper and Magic [Johnson] and all those guys. So, I was always a fan."
    Analysis: Kapono isn't anything beyond a three-point specialist at this point, but with the Lakers' roster, he should be able to chuck up a ton of open threes if he gets playing time. He is not a recommended Draft-Day option, but could be a useful option in category-based leagues if he can get his stroke back. Leave Kapono on the waiver wire to start the season.
  • Report: Kapono to join Lakers

    News: Free agent F Jason Kapono has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Lakers, and will sign once the official free agency period begins on Friday, according to a report on Yahoo.com.
    Analysis: Kapono isn't anything beyond a three-point specialist at this point, but with the Lakers' roster, he should be able to chuck up a ton of open threes if he gets playing time. He'll be returning to his hometown, and could find playing time on the fringes of the Lakers' rotation. He is not a recommended Draft Day option, but he would be an interesting candidate for Rotisserie leaguges, as he is a career .437 shooter from beyond the arc and could find plenty of open looks as a role player for the Lakers.
