Rodney Purvis: Sets fourth-highest scoring mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis tallied 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in the 126-115 loss to the Hustle on Monday.

Purvis posted his first 20-plus point outing since February, registering his fourth-highest outing of the 2018-19 campaign. The 25-year-old is averaging 14.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 32.3 minutes through 44 games with Sioux Falls.

Rodney Purvis: Scores 23 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis registered 23 points (9-19 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and a blocked shot in the win Wednesday over the Wolves.

Purvis has taken a drastic step back in terms of scoring during his second G League season, averaging 13.1 points compared to the 20.5 he put together with Lakeland in 2017-18. That's in large part because he's seeing significantly less minutes as part of a structured rotation among the current group of Sioux Falls guards where the likes of Bubu Palo, Briante Weber and DeAndre Liggins have seen significant minutes in recent games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis led the Skyforce in minutes Monday, acting as the secondary scoring option behind center Raphiael Putney. Through five games, Purvis is averaging 16.8 points per contest and is boasting a healthy 48 percent from the field.

Heat's Rodney Purvis: Signs with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis signed a contract with the Heat on Thursday.

Purvis spent the 2017-18 campaign with Orlando, but saw action in just 16 total games at the NBA level and spent the bulk of his time in the G-League. Despite being signed Thursday, the Heat are likely just trying to acquire his G-League rights and Purvis should be released at some point in the coming week in order to join Miami's affiliate.

Rodney Purvis: Waived by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis was waived by the Celtics on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Purvis has been on three different rosters over the last few weeks following a flurry of trades, but as expected, has now been released in order to open up a roster spot in Boston. He'll look to latch on with another organization for training camp in September, though there's no guarantee he ends up making a final roster. Purvis played in 16 games with Orlando as a rookie last season, averaging 6.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 18.1 minutes.

Thunder's Rodney Purvis: Sent to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis has been traded to the Celtics in exchange for Abdel Nader, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Just days after being traded to Oklahoma City, Pruvis is once again on the move to Boston. Purvis played just 16 games last season, averaging 6.0 points over 18.1 minutes.

Thunder's Rodney Purvis: Dealt to Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis was traded to the Thunder on Friday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

The Thunder will send Dakari Johnson to Orlando in a move that looks to be a low-level salary dump. Johnson's contract for next season is guaranteed at $1.4 million, while Purvis is on a non-guaranteed deal, which the Thunder will likely look to shed.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Drops 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis finished with 20 points (6-16 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes during Friday's 87-85 summer league loss to the Thunder.

Purvis got hot from beyond the arc, hitting four triples en route to dropping a team-high 20 points. He had struggled in summer league prior to Friday's effort, totaling just five points, nine rebounds, three steals and two assists across 53.1 minutes -- unexpected considering he saw nearly 300 minutes in the NBA last season.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Leads bench with 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis scored 16 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go with five rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 101-92 win against Washington.

Getting a chance to play during the last month of the season, Purvis averaged 6.0 points in 18.1 minutes per game. The rookie guard shot a career-high tying 13 times in the regular season finale en route to his bench-leading scoring performance. While averaging 6.7 shots per game, Purvis only shot 32.7 percent from the field.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Moving back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis will return to the bench for Sunday's game against Atlanta, John Denton of reports.

Purvis moved into the lineup Friday night and played 23 minutes, finishing with five points and two rebounds to go with one assist. With Wes Iwundu back in the mix Sunday, Purvis will head back to the bench. The 24-year-old is averaging 15.8 minutes per game since joining the team on Mar. 9, but he's played at least 22 minutes in three of his last four games.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis, due to Wesley Iwundu (illness) being a late scratch, will draw another start at shooting guard during Friday's contest against the Bulls, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Purvis was in line to head back to the bench with Iwundu reportedly healthy enough to come back. But, his condition apparently worsened. So, Purvis will draw a second consecutive start.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Heading back to bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis will come off the bench for Friday's game against Chicago.

With Wesley Iwundu (illness) healthy and being re-inserted into the starting five, Purvis will head back to his usual bench role. Over the past three games, he's averaged 9.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.0 minutes.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Goes scoreless from the floor in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis scored two points (0-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Nets.

Purvis was in the starting lineup for the first time this season and set a new high mark for minutes played. He failed to seize the opportunity, however, missing each of his attempts from the field. Purvis signed a two-year deal with Orlando earlier in the day, but he remains far from a desirable fantasy play and could return to complete irrelevance if and when when Ike Iwundu (illness) and Jonathan Isaac (foot) return.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Starting at shooting guard Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis, with Wesley Iwundu (illness) sidelined, will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's contest against the Nets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Purvis will draw a start on the same day he finalized a two-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Magic. He hasn't cracked 22 minutes in any of his seven appearances this season, though that could change Wednesday. He's averaging 6.3 points across 13.9 minutes.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Signs two-year, non-guaranteed deal with Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis agreed to a two-year contract with the Magic on Wednesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. The second season is non-guaranteed.

The 6-foot-4 undrafted rookie out of UConn has played his way into a contract after signing two consecutive ten-day contracts with Orlando. With the team, he's averaged 6.3 points in 13.9 minutes per game. Though those numbers don't jump off the page, he was impressive in the G-League, especially from beyond the arc (3.1 threes per game at 39.3 percent), so the team may be banking on him improving over the offseason.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Posts six points in return to Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis, recalled from the G League earlier in the day, went for six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 17 minutes in Saturday's 105-99 win over the Suns.

The 24-year-old had put up a career-high 19 points two nights prior against the Sixers, but he was notably less involved on the offensive end Saturday. It remains to be seen how long his current tenure with the NBA club will last, but the uncertainty surrounding his playing time leaves him out of the fantasy conversation for the moment.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Back in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis was recalled from the G League on Saturday.

Purvis spent Friday night with the Lakeland Magic, but both he and Khem Birch have rejoined the NBA club in advance of Saturday's matchup with Phoenix. Purvis played 22 minutes in Thursday's loss to the 76ers, finishing with 19 points and one assist.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Assigned to G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis was assigned to the G-League on Friday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Purvis joined the Magic for Thursday's game against the 76ers and had a very strong performance, scoring a team-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting in the blowout loss. With the team's affiliate in Lakeland now attempting to make the G-League playoffs, Purvis will appear in their back-to-back set Friday and Saturday.

Magic's Rodney Purvis: Goes for game-high 19 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purvis tallied 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and one assist across 22 minutes during a 118-98 loss to the 76ers on Thursday.

In just his sixth NBA game, Purvis secured what was easily his best game so far as his 19 points marked a game high during Friday's blowout loss. It is unlikely he will continue the scoring, as his previous high before this game was six points. But with the team tanking, Purvis may see some minutes down the stretch.
