Nets' Mike James: Plans to sign second 10-day deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James plans to sign a second 10-day contract with the Nets on Monday, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

James joined Brooklyn on a 10-day pact April 20 and averaged 7.4 points, 4.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 19.6 minutes per contest across five games. He should continue to play a similar role for the Nets off the bench after he signs another 10-day agreement.

Nets' Mike James: Scores 15 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James registered 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and a rebound across 24 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against the Blazers.

James wasn't efficient by any means and needed 15 shots to score 15 points, but he's enjoying a solid scoring role off the bench for Brooklyn, especially in nights where Kevin Durant (who was rested Friday) and James Harden (hamstring) are sidelined. The veteran point guard has scored in double digits in two of his last three games.

Nets' Mike James: Scores 11 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James scored 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with eight assists and three rebounds in a 116-103 victory over the Raptors on Tuesday.

James had a solid offensive performance off the bench in just his third game for Brooklyn this season. The guard recently signed a 10-day contract to provide the team with some needed backcourt depth. James has averaged 7.0 points, 3.7 assists and 2.0 rebounds across his three games played.

Nets' Mike James: Officially signs with Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James officially signed a 10-day contract with the Nets on Friday, and he'll be available to make his debut against the Celtics, Billy Reinhardt of reports.

The 30-year-old should provide some much-needed depth at point guard for a Brooklyn team that's currently without James Harden (hamstring), Tyler Johnson (knee), Chris Chiozza (hand) and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) in the backcourt. James last appeared in the NBA with the Suns and Pelicans in the 2017-18 season. He averaged 9.3 points on 38.3 percent shooting from the field in 19.1 minutes per game.

Nets' Mike James: Nearing deal with Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James is expected to sign a contract with Brooklyn once he satisfies the conditions of the NBA's health and safety protocols, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

Rumors circulated over the weekend that Brooklyn was targeting James to fill the spot on the roster that opened up after LaMarcus Aldridge's retirement, and it appears a deal between player and team is merely a formality at this point. Because James only recently returned to the United States after spending the 2020-21 campaign with Russian club CSKA Moscow, he could face more rigorous intake testings than most newly signed players. James' timeline for making his Nets debut is murky as a result, but once he's activated, the 30-year-old should provide some much-needed depth at point guard for a Brooklyn team that's currently without James Harden (hamstring), Tyler Johnson (knee), Chris Chiozza (hand) and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) in the backcourt. James last appeared in the NBA with the Suns and Pelicans in the 2017-18 season, averaging 9.3 points on 38.3 percent shooting from the field in 19.1 minutes per game over his 36 appearances.

Mike James: Signs in Russia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James agreed to a one-year deal Tuesday with CSKA Moscow.

James spent the first half of the 2017-18 season with the Suns before a brief stint with the Pelicans. The 28-year-old played out last season in Italy, where he averaged 19.8 points per game en route to winning the EuroLeague's Alphonso Ford Trophy. James, a Lamar University product, will now join CSKA as he continues his overseas career.

Mike James: Joins Italian team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James has agreed to a three-year, $5-plus million contract with Italian club Olimpia Milano, Sportnado reports.

James spent 36 games, mostly with the Suns, in the NBA during the 2017-18 campaign, averaging 9.3 points, 3.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game. After he was let go in February by the Pelicans, he opted to join the Greek squad Panathinaikos. However, instead of re-upping with them, he's moving on to Italy, where he's secured a three-year deal. At 27-years-old, it's possible he attempts to make an NBA comeback.

Mike James: Returning to Greece
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James, who was waived by the Pelicans on Saturday, will play for Panathinaikos, a Greek basketball club, freelance reporter David Pick reports.

Before signing his contract with the Suns over the summer, James had most recently played with Panathinaikos, averaging 13.1 points and 3.0 assists across 24 games. He'll reportedly return there, seemingly ending any chances he'll play for another NBA team this season.

Mike James: Waived by Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James was let go by the Pelicans on Saturday, Will Guillory of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

James appeared in four games with New Orleans, averaging 1.0 points and 1.5 assists across 4.5 minutes per game. The team apparently feels that their point guard depth of Jrue Holiday, Rajon Rondo and Ian Clark is sufficient.

Pelicans' Mike James: Four dimes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James posted two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four assists and one steal across seven minutes in Saturday's 118-107 loss to Minnesota.

The loss marked James' third game with the Pelicans. James is squarely behind Rajon Rondo, Jrue Holiday and Ian Clark on the teams point guard depth chart. After the All-Star break, he'll approach his 45-day NBA limit with New Orleans, forcing the Pelicans to make a roster decision on the 27-year-old reserve.

Pelicans' Mike James: Signing two-way deal with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James will sign a two-way contract with the Pelicans, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

James spent time with the Suns earlier this season but was waived in December when the team brought in veteran Isaiah Canaan. Given that he still has two-way-eligible days remaining, James will likely remain with the Pelicans through the All-Star break, but the team will then have to make a decision on his future. In 32 games for Phoenix, James compiled averages of 10.4 points, 3.8 assists and 2.8 rebonds per game.

Suns' Mike James: Waived by Phoenix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James was waived by the Suns, Bobby Marks of reports.

James played 31 games with the Suns, averaging 10.4 points and 3.8 assists across 20.9 minutes per game. James' role started to fall by the wayside once the team signed Isaiah Canaan under the NBA's injury hardship exception. Now, with the team more healthy, the organization was forced to make a decision about who to keep, choosing Canaan.

Suns' Mike James: Scores 17 points off the bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists and one rebound in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 99-92 loss to the Kings.

Tyler Ulis drew the start instead of James Tuesday night, which has been the case for the past several games after James endured a horrific cold streak which lasted most of November. While he's given up any shot of a starting role as a result, he's trying to make a case for more playing time from the bench, where he's put up two straight respectable showings. James' role on the team seems to be with the second unit for the time being, so the rookie warrants ownership in only the deepest of leagues at this point.

Suns' Mike James: Scores team-high 25 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James scored 25 points (8-16 FG, 2-5 3PT, 7-9 FT) to with two rebounds, two assists and three steals across 29 minutes in Saturday's 104-101 loss to San Antonio.

James surpassed the 20-point mark for the first time in his last seven games, leading the Suns with 25 points from the bench on Saturday. Two days after signing a one-year contract, the guard responded by coming within a point of tying his career-high 26 points that he set on November 26. James struggled from the floor in his previous six games, shooting 34.8 percent for an average of 6.1 points per game. On Saturday, James benefited from the absence of Devin Booker (groin). James will look to build upon Saturday's breakout performance when Phoenix takes on Sacramento on Tuesday.

Suns' Mike James: Contract picked up for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Suns signed James to a one-year contract that will keep him with the team through the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

The two-way contract James signed during the offseason only allowed him to spend no more than 45 days with the Suns during the 2017-18 campaign, but with that timeline set to expire and the rookie point guard making his case for a permanent roster spot, Phoenix decided to give him some more security. After a blistering start to the season, the 27-year-old James has settled into the backup role at point guard behind Tyler Ulis and is averaging 10.5 points, 4.0 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game this season.

Suns' Mike James: Two-way contract set to expire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James' two-way deal with the Suns, which allows him to spend up to 45 days with the team, is set to expire Wednesday, and management is yet to make a decision on his future, Dan Feldman of Yahoo Sports reports.

As a two-way player, James is only allowed to spend a maximum of 45 days with the Suns for the entire season, but since he's been with Phoenix since opening night, he's burned through that allotment in as little time as possible. While GM Ryan McDonough has publicly stated that the Suns intend to keep James around, it's unclear how, exactly, the organization would go about doing that, as his deal would have to be converted to a standard NBA contract, and a full-time roster spot would need to be created. If Phoenix decides to go that route, it could cut a young player like Derrick Jones, Jr. or 2017 second-rounder Davon Reed, though the Suns would likely try to avoid severing ties with an unproven asset. Alternatively, Phoenix could engineer a trade to free up a roster spot -- the recently acquired Greg Monroe comes to mind as one potential option -- or simply send James to the G-League for the time being. A resolution of some sort is expected to come before midnight Wednesday, so the situation is worth monitoring throughout the evening.

Suns' Mike James: Scores career-high 26 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James recorded 26 points (10-20 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists and five rebounds across 30 minutes during a 119-108 loss to the Timberwolves on Sunday.

James was phenomenal off the bench, as he tallied a career-high 26 points and vastly outplayed starting guard Tyler Ulis, who had just four points. He received an increased workload because Devin Booker (knee) was sidelined. James has been up and down so far this season, and when Booker returns, that trend will likely continue for James.

Suns' Mike James: Productive despite move to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James managed nine points (4-4 FG, 1-3 FT), five assists and three rebounds across 19 minutes in Saturday's 118-110 win over the Timberwolves.

James was shifted to the second unit Saturday in favor of Tyler Ulis, but he still managed to outpace the latter in scoring and equal his rebound and assist totals despite playing seven fewer minutes. There were rumblings that the move may have been at least partly disciplinary in nature -- James threw the ball at teammate Dragan Bender in the Suns' last contest -- lending credence to the notion that the starting point guard could find himself back with the first unit against the Lakers on Monday night.

Suns' Mike James: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves with Tyler Ulis drawing the start, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

The move comes just one game after James threw a basketball at teammate Dragan Bender after some frustration. It's unclear if his overall workload will be affected.

Suns' Mike James: Scores 18 points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James finished with 18 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 126-115 loss to the Heat.

Though James has generally struggled to find consistency in his shot (37.4 percent coming into Wednesday), he's shown an ability to get hot from the field on occasion while also being a quality source of assists. That, coupled with the fact that he plays in a fast-paced offense, seems to make him a legitimate fantasy option in many formats moving forward.
