Royce O'Neale News
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Suns, Grizzlies, and Nets completed a three-team trade ahead of Thursday's deadline. Notably, Brooklyn will send forward Royce O'Neale to Phoenix. The 30-year-old has played for two teams throughout his career, the Jazz and Nets. He's averaged 6.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists while shooting 38.1% from deep. O'Neale has been a top trade target for many teams around the National Basketball Association for a while now, so the move shouldn't surprise anyone. Although he likely won't be a routine fantasy contributor, he'll provide Phoenix with much-needed depth. That said, O'Neale will probably start here or there moving ahead, meaning there should be some streaming opportunities for fantasy managers.
Brooklyn Nets forwards Dorian Finney-Smith and Royce O'Neale are two of three players seemingly on the trade block ahead of the NBA's trade deadline on February 8. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nets are listening to offers on both of their veteran forwards and Spencer Dinwiddie. They're expected to look for deals on just these three vets while the rest of the roster is expected to stay in Brooklyn at least until this offseason. Finney-Smith and O'Neale are two prototypical 3-and-D wings that many playoff contenders could use. It's unclear right now what the Nets are expecting in return and whether or not it would be a package of picks plus younger players or one of the two.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Royce O'Neale (hip) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's encounter with Orlando. After sitting out one game, the 30-year-old appears ready to return to the lineup. O'Neale had a couple of outstanding scoring outings before suffering a hip contusion, putting up 38 total points in meetings with Chicago and Toronto. He has averaged a versatile line, mainly as a bench player in 2023-24, logging 8.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 29.9 minutes. The Magic have impressed with their defense, and it's tough to score against them, so O'Neale's habit of doing a little bit of everything should help him be effective in Saturday's matchup.
Brooklyn Nets forward Royce O'Neale had his contract guaranteed by the organization on Monday. The 30-year-old is set to make $9.5 million for the upcoming 2023-2024 campaign. O'Neale gives the Nets another versatile playmaker and reliable defender on the perimeter. The expectation is that Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson are going to start on the wings. That means, O'Neale will likely come off the bench, but he could still contribute at a decent level with the second unit. He averaged 8.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 31.7 minutes last season. His fantasy value is going to be dependent on what kind of role he can secure this next season.
