Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Set to decline player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham said Saturday that he intends to decline his player option for the 2017-18 season, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

The decision doesn't come as much of a surprise considering Westbrook was set to make just over $3.1 million next season. The 30-year-old, who appeared in 66 games for New Orleans, will likely seek a longer-term deal as a free agent, and chances are he'll draw considerable interest after shooting nearly 40 percent from three in 2016-17.

Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Modest production in Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham collected six points (3-6 FG) and five rebounds over 27 minutes in Saturday's 123-101 loss to the Warriors.

Cunningham notched a second straight start at power forward in place of DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) and has now averaged 5.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in those games. The eight-year veteran's upside remains capped even when getting extra run with the first unit, with a pair of 15-point efforts serving as his scoring high for the season.

Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham will get the spot start at power forward for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Pelicans' radio announcer Sean Kelley reports.

The team is opting to sit DeMarcus Cousins due to a nagging sore Achilles. As a result, Cunningham will slide into the starting lineup. He has averaged just 6.7 points and 4.7 rebounds across 28.5 minutes in 31 starts this season.

Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Sharp despite return to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham ended up with 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) with two rebounds and two steals over 20 minutes in Wednesday's 121-118 win against the Mavericks.

Cunningham headed back to the bench with DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) back after a two-game hiatus. However, despite the return to the bench, it was one of his best performances of the season. Even though he had a rather solid stat line he remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues.

Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Will head back to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham is expected to return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

Cunningham has started the last two games in place of the ailing DeMarcus Cousins (ankle), averaging just 7.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.0 block across 34.0 minutes. His move back to the bench should signal a decent drop in minutes, which takes Cunningham off the radar in the majority of fantasy leagues.
