  • Larkin generated 16 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and one rebound across 17 minutes in Friday's 90-87 win over the Hornets. Larkin saw some unexpected run with Kyrie Irving (concussion) exiting the game less than two minutes in. The 25-year-old saw a season-high amount of minutes and produced with them, with his point total easily his best of the season thus far. Larkin could see another decent workload against the Raptors on Sunday if Irving is unable to suit up for that contest.

  • Larkin had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, and two assists in eight minutes during Wednesday's 113-86 win over the Kings. Larkin has appeared in seven of eight contests, but he is averaging just 10.6 minutes per night. Barring an injury to one of the three point guards ahead of Larkin on the depth chart (Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier), the 25-year-old journeyman is at best a dart throw in daily fantasy leagues.

  • Celtics' Shane Larkin: Agrees to join Celtics
    By RotoWire Staff

    Larkin agreed to a deal Thursday to join the Celtics, international basketball writer David Pick reports. Larkin played for three years on three different teams in the NBA before heading to the Euroleague last season. There, he played for Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz and averaged 13.1 points, 5.7 assists and 2.7 rebounds across 29 minutes per game. Now, the point guard is ready to take a second chance at the NBA in Boston, but barring any injuries, Larkin will likely be buried in the team's backcourt rotation.

  • Nets' Shane Larkin: Declines player option
    By RotoWire Staff

    Larkin will opt out of his $1.5 million player option for the 2016-17 season and become an unrestricted free agent, Alex Kennedy of BasketballInsiders.com reports. Larkin played in a reserve role for the Nets this past season, averaging 7.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals over 22 minutes per game. With the salary cap expected to increase at the start of the new league year, he'll opt out of his current contract in hopes of seeing an increase in pay. Larkin has seen just 39 starts over the first three years of his career, so he'll likely have to settle for a bench role with his new team. Larkin is considered an unrestricted free agent and will have the option to sign with whoever.

  • Nets' Shane Larkin: Career-high in loss to Nets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Larkin co-led Brooklyn with a career-high 20 points (9-13 FG, 0-2 FT, 2-4 3Pt) to go along with seven assists and six rebounds across 31 minutes during Monday's loss to the Wizards. The pint-sized guard thrived against a Washington lineup comprised mostly of reserve-caliber players, racking up seven or more assists for the fifth straight game in addition to his career game as a scorer. Larkin should see all the touches he can handle for an undermanned Nets squad in their season finale versus the Raptors on Wednesday.
