Free-Agent guard Dwayne Bacon agreed to a one-year, minimum-salary deal with the New York Knicks. Bacon spent his first three seasons in Charlotte before suiting up for the Magic last season, finishing the year by averaging a career-high 10.9 points and 3.1 rebounds throughout all 72 games. The move purely adds depth for the Knickerbockers, although there could be a steaming opportunity for needy fantasy managers at some point during the 2021-22 campaign. However, he shouldn't be considered a consistent option in any format unless he gains a consistent role moving ahead.
Orlando Magic shooting guard Dwayne Bacon scored a team-high 20 points on 6-for-15 shooting in Sunday's loss to Indiana, adding five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 32 minutes. The 25-year-old finished 1-for-3 with the three-ball and 7-for-8 at the foul line. It was a good bounce-back performance from Bacon after he had managed only eight points in Thursday's loss to New Orleans. He boasts two 20-point efforts in his past four performances, but Bacon has been very inconsistent throughout the season, and the next matchup against the Lakers is an ugly one as well, so fantasy managers should steer clear of him.
Orlando Magic guard Dwayne Bacon compiled 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 33 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Rockets. Bacon is not usually a main contributor on offense for the Magic and the last time he posted over 20 points was back on March 28th. Given the fact that his role is small, his numbers aren't consistent, and he's only averaging 10.2 points per game, Bacon isn't worth fantasy consideration at this moment.
Orlando Magic shooting guard Dwayne Bacon had a great Sunday night with a game-high 26 points on 9-for-19 shooting in a narrow loss to the Lakers. He finished 2-for-6 from downtown and made all six of his free throws, adding eight rebounds and one assist with one turnover in 33 minutes. The Magic cleared the house on trade deadline and Bacon is back to playing significant minutes. The 25-year-old has produced good scoring numbers whenever he has gotten enough playing time, and he now has another opportunity to perform. Bacon generally doesn't offer much else besides scoring, but his Friday's line included six assists and he matched a season high with eight rebounds on Sunday.
