Steven Adams

C, Oklahoma City Thunder

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Thunder have agreed to trade Steven Adams to the Pelicans in exchange for a future first-round pick and second-round picks.

The Thunder just keep on racking up picks. The writing was on the wall for Adams in OKC, and he’ll depart as a beloved figure in franchise history. The Pelicans have been connected to some more old school bigs and Adams fits the bill as a guy who can provide toughness, rebounding and mentorship for a young squad. Last season wasn’t one of Adams’ best in fantasy, and New Orleans isn’t a perfect landing spot considering the limited minutes Derrick Favors received last year, but this should be a steadier journey than Adams spending the whole year on a rebuilding team.

Delon Wright

PG, Dallas Mavericks

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Thunder, Mavs and Pistons are combining for a three-team trade that will land Delon Wright with the Pistons, Justin Jackson and Trevor Ariza with the Thunder and James Johnson with the Mavs.

It’s a big, surprising transaction that fills a lot of holes for the parties involved. Wright will have a chance to play a prominent role for the rebuilding Pistons after struggling in his first season with the Mavs, while Dallas gets a big, versatile defender to bolster their forward depth and the Thunder pick up a young player and another tradeable veteran. As is custom this offseason, they also pick up future draft compensation that has yet to be determined. Johnson and Ariza have been traded multiple times already this offseason, and while JJ looks to have found a landing spot, Ariza should not be expected to finish the season in OKC.

Pat Connaughton

SG, Milwaukee Bucks

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Bucks will be retaining the services of guard Pat Connaughton after both sides agreed to a two-year deal worth $8.3 million, with a player option in the second year.

Connaughton gets to keep providing the Bucks with some serviceable backcourt depth on the cheap. He’s only on fantasy radars in ultra-deep leagues though, unfortunately.

Jakob Poeltl

C, San Antonio Spurs

Jakob Poeltl is finalizing a deal with the Spurs to stay with the team via a three-year deal worth $27 million, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Poeltl has been groomed by the Spurs for a few years now and knows the ropes. He’s getting a decent payday considering he’s just a boards-and-blocks specialist in fantasy.

Justin Holiday

SG, Indiana Pacers

According to Shams Charania, Justin Holiday is set to return to the Pacers, after both parties agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth $18.1 million.

The Pacers are crazy-thin as far as wing players are concerned, so securing a dependable asset like Holiday in this case, makes a lot of sense for them. They’re still currently in the middle of negotiations to secure the services of Gordon Hayward from the Celtics, but even if he does join Indiana, Holiday’s role shouldn’t be impacted too much as a steals and 3s specialist.
