New Orleans Pelicans guard Garrett Temple is getting waived ahead of the July 7 deadline, according to Michael Scotto of USA Today. The 13-year veteran was a deep reserve for the team and only appeared in 25 games last season. Since he was owed $5.4 million if kept past the deadline, the team decided to waive him and save the money. He already wasn't relevant in any fantasy format, however, if he signs with a competitive team in need of shooting off of the bench, Temple could find some use in deep leagues.
New Orleans Pelicans guard/forward Garrett Temple played a very marginal role this season and will turn 37 in May, but he is still planning to continue his NBA career and wants to stay in New Orleans. The Louisiana-born veteran averaged only 6.5 minutes across 25 games with the Pelicans this season. It was his second year with the club after Temple had represented 10 different teams in his first 11 seasons in the league. Temple averaged a career-high 10.3 points and 3.5 rebounds just a few campaigns ago with Brooklyn, but he isn't somebody fantasy managers should look to draft.
New Orleans Pelicans guard/forward Garrett Temple (personal) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup against Portland. He hasn't played at all this month whilst dealing with a personal issue. In fact, Temple has made just two appearances this season, playing a total of 21 minutes, so he's a non-factor in fantasy hoops. But it's good to know that he is game-ready again following a lengthy absence.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Garrett Temple will slide into the starting five for Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Brandon Ingram (Achilles) remains out of the lineup, which leads to another start for Temple. He dropped 22 points during the loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. There is some low-end streaming appeal and Temple could be a low cost DFS option. It's uncertain how long Ingram will be sidelined, so Temple could have some short term appeal.
