  • Kings' Malik Monk: Signs with Kings in free agency

    Monk and the Kings agreed to terms on a two-year, $19 million contract Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Monk was one of a flurry of transactions to break just as free agency began Thursday night, and he'll cash in after playing last season on a prove-it deal with the Lakers. The 2017 lottery pick fared well in L.A., averaging a career-high 13.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 0.8 steals in 28.1 minutes per game. He'll enter a less-chaotic environment in Sacramento, where he'll primarily compete with 2021 first-rounder Davion Mitchell for minutes at both guard spots.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Drops 24 points in loss

    Monk logged 24 points (8-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Thursday's 128-112 loss to Golden State.

    Los Angeles played without most of its regular starters in the contest, handing players like Monk and Talen Horton-Tucker (40 points) the reigns on offense. Monk registered his best scoring effort since March 29 and handed out a team-best four assists. The fifth-year guard is averaging 17.9 points, 4.6 dimes, 3.4 boards and 2.5 three-pointers over his past eight games.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Logs only 18 minutes

    Monk recorded seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and five assists over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 121-110 loss to the Suns.

    Monk has helped the Lakers through some difficult times this season, but he's had a lot of trouble finding scoring opportunities recently. His primary problem is shot volume, as he's attempted only 16 shots over the past two games. He also took a seat early in Tuesday's loss, which is another contributing factor to his sagging fantasy production.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Scoring regression continues

    Monk had 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds and six assists in 33 minutes during Sunday's 129-118 loss to the Nuggets.

    Despite logging his third start in the past four games, Monk's numbers have taken a hit recently. He's come in handy amidst the Lakers' plethora of injury losses and is one of a few players to absorb LeBron James' production when he is absent. Although he can pop with a big number in that injury scenario, his performances over the past two games show how volatile his fantasy usage can be.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Starting Sunday

    Monk will start Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    With LeBron James (ankle) sidelined, Monk will draw his 32nd start of the season. As a starter, he's averaged 16.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 32.2 minutes per game. While Monk will draw the start in place of James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook will likely benefit the most from the All-Star captain's absence.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Coming off bench Friday

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Starting Tuesday

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Hits for 23 off bench

    Monk notched 23 points (9-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and six assists over 29 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 116-108 loss to the Pelicans.

    Playing his third straight game with the second unit, Monk continues to be one of the few Lakers giving a consistent effort as the team tries to cling to a spot in the play-in tournament. The 24-year-old has produced back-to-back games with 23 points, and over the last 14 contests he's averaging 15.5 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 boards, 2.4 threes and 1.1 steals.

  • Lakers' Malik Monk: Moves to bench

    Monk will come off the bench Monday against the Cavaliers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    Monk started the past 11 games for the Lakers and averaged 14.5 points, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.2 minutes during that stretch, but he'll step out of the lineup Monday in Cleveland. He should still be involved off the bench while Wenyen Gabriel starts in his place.
