    K.J. McDaniels: Aids in win

    KJ McDaniels finished Thursday's win over the Vipers with 22 points (9-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and three steals.McDaniels has frequently acted as the third-scoring option for the Blue, averaging 14.3 points in nine games this season. The lack of decisive minutes makes the guard a difficult play when looking for other categories such as rebounds or assists, but his scoring prowess is such where McDaniels remains on the edge when it comes to an intriguing fantasy candidate.

    Thunder's K.J. McDaniels: Gets camp invite from Oklahoma City

    KJ McDaniels agreed to a contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier in September, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.McDaniels will join the Thunder on what likely is little more than a camp deal with limited guaranteed money. A 2014 second-round pick, McDaniels submitted a promising rookie campaign while splitting time with the 76ers and Rockets, but the swingman's lack of development as a shooter have dimmed his NBA prospects. He'll face long odds to crack the Thunder roster and could head to the G League's Oklahoma City Blue in the likely event he's cut before the regular season gets underway.

    Trail Blazers' K.J. McDaniels: Spearheads SL championship game victory

    KJ McDaniels posted 17 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes during the Portland Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.The three-year NBA veteran was critical to the win, leading the Blazers in scoring despite coming off the bench. McDaniels earned the title game MVP award for his efforts, which included zero turnovers. The 25-year-old's performance was especially timely, as he ultimately averaged only 6.7 points and 4.4 rebounds across 14.9 minutes over seven games in Las Vegas. McDaniels will now hope that his breakout in the most important contest of the tournament will be enough to earn him a training camp invite with Portland or elsewhere.
