KEY 2017-18 Fantasy Basketball - Seasonal Rankings

Use these rankings to decide who to draft and where to draft them. FA rankings are based on a players short term and long term value with upside and injury risk factored in. Use these with confidence during your draft and throughout the season.

AUCTION VALUES: These values are for leagues with a $200 auction budget. If you want a player, pay up for him. Numbers should be used as a guideline. Feel out the auction and look to nominate players you don’t want when major spending sprees are happening. Always pay up for the players you want. Before spending that extra dollar, look at depth charts to get starters.

Roy Hibbert Headshot

Hibbert announced Tuesday that he'll retire from the NBA, Ashish Mathur of Amico Hoops reports.

Hibbert stated "it's just time to move on" and "I'm good on it right now." The 31-year-old big man last played in the NBA during the 2016-2017 season for the Nuggets, although he spent the majority of his playing career with the Pacers (five seasons).

Kendrick Perkins Headshot

Perkins was waived by the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Perkins' team option for the 2018-19 season was picked up in late June in case salary filler was needed for a trade, but with free agency coming to a close, the Cavaliers no longer have a need for the veteran. Chances are Perkins' time in the NBA is done, especially since the Cavaliers are shifting towards building for the future.

Marshall Plumlee Headshot

Plumlee confirmed Monday via his personal Instagram account that the Bucks withdrew his qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.

After cutting ties with Plumlee, the Bucks will now have space to sign another player to a two-way contract. Plumlee joined the Bucks on a two-way deal in January, appearing in eight games for Milwaukee and 13 for their G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd. He'll look to secure a two-way deal or training camp invite with another team.
1:08 pm (EST)
Deyonta Davis Headshot

Davis was traded to the Kings on Tuesday along with Ben McLemore and cash in exchange for Garrett Temple, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Due to a number of injuries, Davis saw over 15 minutes per game in his second season with the Grizzlies, but now, with the team focused on competing once again, the 21-year-old is headed to Sacramento. Unfortunately for Davis, he joins an abundance of young frontcourt talent with the Kings, including the likes of Marvin Bagley, Willie Cauley-Stein, Harry Giles and Skal Labissiere. With Sacramento likely favoring those four guys over Davis, playing time will likely be extremely hard to come by for the youngster over the course of the 2018-19 season.
12:11 pm (EST)
Ben McLemore Headshot

McLemore was traded to the Kings on Tuesday along with Deyonta Davis and cash in exchange for Garrett Temple, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After one season in Memphis, McLemore will return to the team that originally selected him with the 7th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. After five NBA seasons, McLemore is yet to make the impact of most lottery picks, and he now lands with a team in Sacramento that already has plenty of young backcourt talent with the likes of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson all under contract. As a result, minutes will likely be hard to come by once again for the 25-year-old this season.
12:06 pm (EST)
Garrett Temple Headshot

Temple was traded to the Grizzlies on Tuesday in exchange for Ben McLemore, Deyonta Davis and cash, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

This is yet another sign that the Grizzlies have no desire to remain at the bottom of the Western Conference, as Temple is another quality veteran piece to play with stars Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. Temple fills a pretty sizable void at a shooting guard position that is currently occupied by the likes of MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden, and his presence should give Memphis more stability on the wing. Additionally, by not being on a team focused on the growth of its younger players, Temple should see more consistent playing time this season.
11:48 am (EST)
Nemanja Bjelica Headshot

Bjelica has elected to remain in Europe for the 2018-19 season and will not play with the 76ers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bjelica had only agreed to terms with the 76ers, and the team was planning on using its mid-level exception to sign the floor-spacing forward this offseason. However, Bjelica reportedly wishes to stay close to his family in Europe, so Philly is going to miss out on their key offseason acquisition. Bjelica was expected to take on the floor-spacing role that Ersan Ilyasova had for the team last season, but his absence could now open up more minutes in that role for veteran Wilson Chandler, who the 76ers traded for earlier this offseason.
11:18 am (EST)
Jeff Ayres Headshot

Ayres scored 20 points (6-8 FG, 8-9 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists and a block in 35 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime win over the Cavaliers in the summer league semi-final.

While Josh Hart and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk have been the engine of the Lakers' offense in Vegas, the 31-year-old Ayres has been a stable presence in the post. He hasn't played a minute in the NBA since 2015-16, though, spending the last two seasons in Russia and Japan, and even if his showing in the summer league earns him a training camp invite, it's hard to see Ayres finding his way back to North America in any kind of meaningful role.
9:11 am (EST)
Josh Hart Headshot

Hart scored 37 points (13-28 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding nine rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime win over the Cavaliers in the summer league semi-final.

The 23-year-old's been explosive in Vegas, as Hart looks to prove he can be a solid rotation player for a Lakers squad that suddenly has title aspirations after adding LeBron James. If Hart does earn a spot in the NBA rather than the G League coming out of training camp, though, it will likely be for his all-around game and leadership abilities rather than his offense.
8:58 am (EST)
Jamel Artis Headshot

Artis scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists and a steal in 38 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime loss to the Lakers in the summer league semi-final.

Getting the start at small forward, Artis posted another solid performance to close out his Vegas campaign. The second-year wing will look to carry his strong play into training camp, whether it's with the Cavs or another organization, but he's still a long shot to earn meaningful NBA minutes in 2018-19.
