The Nuggets have traded Wilson Chandler and a draft consideration to the 76ers.

Denver's "draft consideration" will be a 2021 second-round pick and the rights to swap second-rounder in 2022, and Denver getting Chandler's $12.8 million off the books will give them the space to sign Will Barton to his extension. The 76ers could use a two-way, wing player like Chandler, but on such a deep team, it would be tough for him to make much noise in fantasy hoops. His departure from Denver should result in more opportunity for Barton and Juan Hernangomez.

The Timberwolves, Lakers, Knicks, Pacers and 76ers have all expressed interest in Lance Stephenson.

The Pacers declined to pick up their team option on Born Ready for the 2018-19 season, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer, but it seems they aren't opposed to a reunion. Stephenson's contract situation likely won't work itself out until some of the bigger free agent names come off the board, but it's unlikely he'll be much of a factor in fantasy hoops, regardless of where he winds up.

LeBron James and Magic Johnson did not have dinner together after free agency began at 9:00 PDT on Saturday night, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Outside of knowing that LeBron was in Los Angeles and that Magic Johnson was at the Los Angeles Convention Center Saturday afternoon, we don't have any more detail available regarding their connection. James only had a phone call with the Cavs last night and he is not expected to meet with the 76ers today -- Rich Paul is meeting with Philly. LeBron Watch continues.

According to ESPN's Ian Begley, there are several people in the Sixers organization that are confident Kawhi Leonard would strongly consider re-signing there next summer if they traded for him.

It's assumed the Sixers are hesitant to offer a king's ransom to the Spurs in exchange for Kawhi because they are worried it would be just a one-year rental. If they had assurances that Leonard was willing to commit long-term, they would likely increase their offer significantly. This is certainly a situation to keep an eye on.

The 76ers still believe they have a real chance to win the Kawhi Leonard trade sweepstakes, and plan to use it as a top selling point in talks with LeBron James' agent Rich Paul, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

The 76ers are a darkhorse on LeBron, but they do have a lot of assets to put together an offer on Leonard. We've seen things like picks, Robert Covington and Dario Saric thrown around, and maybe the 76ers up their offer, too. Somewhat surprisingly, we still haven't add a trade yet.

The 76ers and Timberwolves are showing interest in restricted free agent Jabari Bird.

He was barely in the rotation, but Bird showed he can defend already at the NBA level. If he can add a 3-pointer, maybe Bird can find himself in an NBA rotation. The Celtics likely won't be able to offer more than the minimum.

Pressure is reportedly mounting on the Lakers to acquire Kawhi Leonard ahead of free agency.

LeBron James reportedly would like to make his free agency decision quickly, meaning there's some added pressure on the Lakers to bring in Leonard in order to entice LBJ to sign with the Los Angeles franchise. However, the Lakers first conversation with Spurs management did not get very far, and San Antonio appears to be in no rush to get a deal done. Leonard could steer his way towards Los Angeles if he can convince opposing NBA teams that his only interest is to sign with the Lakers in 2019, but right now, the Celtics, Clippers and 76ers all remain interested in Kawhi.

Kevin Knox is scheduled for a solo workout with the 76ers.

Knox has really boosted his stock with recent workouts, and this will actually be his second workout for Philly. Zhaire Smith will also be making his second appearance at the 76ers facilities for a group workout on Tuesday, so it would appear Philadelphia is looking to add an athletic, 3-and-D type wing player on draft day. Knox is expected to go somewhere within the Nos. 7-11 range.

Mikal Bridges believes he'd be a "perfect fit" with the 76ers.

If Bridges is still available when Philly comes on the board with the No. 10 overall selection on draft day, they could certainly look his way. "He’s got the ability to put it on the deck, create not only for himself but for others, as well," said 76ers' VP of player personnel Marc Eversley, also praising his athleticism. Bridges would fill a need in Philly as a lockdown defender on the wing who can hit the 3-ball, but that wouldn't necessarily be the best spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops.
Jun 13 - 12:07 PM

The Lakers, Celtics and 76ers are all interested in Kawhi Leonard.

While those teams may be interested, the Spurs, to this point, have shown no interest in trading away their franchise player. Adrian Wojnarowski reports that San Antonio turned down a trade offer from Boston for Leonard ahead of the February trade deadline this past season, and never countered, so it looks like they're going to do everything they can to try and rebuild this relationship after a contemptuous 2017-18 season.

LeBron James is expected to speak with the Heat, Lakers, Cavs, 76ers and Spurs during free agency.

Chris Paul is a big factor here, as he's very close with LeBron James and was quoted saying he was already recruiting LBJ once the Rockets got bounced out of the Western Conference Finals. Daryl Morey would need to move around some contracts to make the numbers work, but it wouldn't be impossible for him to add James to the core of James Harden, CP3 and Clint Capela. James could also partner up with Paul in Los Angeles, or he could go to San Antonio to play under a coach he's openly admired.
Jun 10 - 5:27 PM

Lonnie Walker is scheduled to work out for the 76ers on Monday.

Miles Bridges will also be in attendance at Monday's workout, and both these guys could be options for the 76ers when they come on the board with their No. 10 overall selection. Walker is an explosive athlete who is excellent at working off the ball, but he can be streaky on the offensive end and needs to improve as a ball handler. Bridges, at 6-foot-9 is a bit undersized at the four-spot, but he makes up for that with his raw athleticism and he's also got a nice 3-point stroke.
Jun 10 - 4:17 PM

Grayson Allen worked out for the 76ers on Wednesday.

Allen put in averages of 15.5 points, 4.6 dimes, 2.8 triples and 1.7 steals per game in his senior season with Duke, and the 76ers could look to him with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft. Interestingly, Brian Colangelo was in attendance at Wednesday's workout, so maybe the 76ers front office has decided to stick with him despite Burner-gate.
Jun 6 - 1:39 PM

Mikal Bridges is scheduled for workouts with the Knicks and 76ers.

Bridges has already had workouts with the Hornets and Bulls, but it'll be interesting to see how his workout in New York goes with early reporting indicating that the Knicks are already high on him. Bridges put in averages of 17.7 points, 5.3 boards, 1.9 dimes, 2.6 treys, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game in his final season with Villanova, so New York would be a good potential landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops.
Jun 4 - 6:03 PM

Monty Williams is in discussions with Sixers coach Brett Brown about the team's top assistant coach position, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Williams is working for Spurs front office but he's reportedly been "eager" to return to coaching -- he served as New Orleans' head coach from 2011-15. Philly lost assistant Lloyd Pierce when he was offered the Hawks' coaching job, so it makes sense that they're interested in Williams and his defense-first mentality.
May 30 - 9:14 PM

The Hawks have finalized Ersan Ilyasova's buyout.

Ilyasova is expected to head to Philly once he clears waivers, where he'll add depth to the frontcourt but won't play much. With Ilyasova no longer in Atlanta, John Collins should start the rest of the way, making him a must-own guy in most leagues.
Feb 26 - 3:38 PM

Once Ersan Ilyasova's buyout is completed with Atlanta, he's expected to sign a deal with Philadelphia.

Ilyasova spent time in Philly last year, so he's familiar with Brett Brown's system, and he'll help add some depth and 3-point shooting to the 76ers' frontcourt. However, it's unlikely he'll earn enough minutes with the 76ers to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops, so he's safe to leave on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 25 - 5:03 PM

The 76ers have reportedly expressed interest in Tyreke Evans.

The Grizzlies want a first-round pick for Evans and the 76ers are reportedly reluctant to throw that into the deal, although Memphis may be able to entice them if they'd be willing to take on Jerryd Bayless, who is owed roughly $8.5 million next season. Evans has also been linked to Boston, New Orleans, Miami, OKC and Houston, and it seems likely that he won't finish the year in Memphis. He's in an ideal situation in Memphis, so owners may want to sell-high before he gets dealt.
Jan 31 - 12:17 PM

The Clippers and Pistons have reportedly engaged in "serious talks" on a deal centered around Blake Griffin.

The moving pieces to this potential deal are unclear at this point, but Avery Bradley has reportedly been made available, so he's likely a name that's being discussed on Detroit's side. Tobias Harris could also be thrown into the deal to make the numbers work, so it'll be interesting to see how this one plays out. Griffin's value wouldn't change much with the Pistons.
Jan 29 - 6:06 PM

The Cavs are expressing interest in a trade for George Hill, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

This report adds the Cavs are pursuing Hill to potentially slide into a dual-guard role, starting at either backcourt position or playing as a reserve. This will be a lot easier said than done because Hill just signed a massive three-year, $57 million deal this summer, so there will probably have to be other teams involved. Now that Hill is going to be rested, a trade could help his fantasy value, but a limited role in Cleveland wouldn't be the best spot for him.
