Free agent guard Justin Holiday has signed a one-year deal with the Indiana Pacers, where he joins his brother Aaron. Last year, Holiday split time between Chicago and Memphis, playing in 82 games with 77 starts and putting up averages of 10.5 points and 3.9 rebounds on 38.6 percent shooting. Indiana's a better team and because of that won't afford Holiday with the same amount of minutes, but he gives the Pacers a bench option who can hit a ton of threes. There's late round fantasy value here, but not as much as there was for Holiday last season.
The Chicago Bulls have agreed to terms with former Indiana forward Thaddeus Young. Young, who will sign a three-year, $41 million deal upon completion of free-agent moratorium, was a solid contributor for his former squad in 2019, averaging 12.6 points and 6.5 rebounds while missing only one game. He will see a reduced role in his new home after starting in 309 games throughout the last four seasons, coming off the bench behind Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter, but his effectiveness from the field and ability to remain healthy will continue to make him a solid fantasy asset this upcoming fantasy year.
The Sacramento Kings and free agent guard Cory Joseph have reached an agreement on three-year deal. Joseph will be the backup point guard to DeAaron Fox. Joseph played all 164 games over his two seasons in Indiana, averaging 7.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.5 assists over that span of time while shooting 41.8 percent from the floor. Hell continue to be an effective player for the Kings, but his fantasy value remains as low as it was in Indiana, which is to say that Joseph isnt going to help you win in most fantasy leagues with his low volume stats.
Former Pacers forward Bojan Bogdanovic has reportedly agreed to a four-year deal with the Utah Jazz. Bogdanovic was a revelation for the Pacers last year, posting career high averages in points (18), assists (2.0), and rebounds (4.1) per game while connecting on 42.5 percent of his threes. Hell slide into the Jazz starting lineup, where he should see even more open looks from deep with defenses forced to deal with guard Donovan Mitchell and forward Joe Ingles on the perimeter and center Rudy Gobert inside. This is a great landing spot for Bogdanovic, and while its possible he sees a slight reduction in shot attempts, more open shots and a higher efficiency can easily offset that issue. Bogdanovic will remain a strong fantasy option.
Indiana Pacers guard/forward Tyreke Evans has been disqualified from the NBA due to violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Evans won't be allowed to play in the NBA for two years. However, after those two years, he's eligible to seek reinstatement. Evans is currently 31 years old and was going to be a free agent this summer.
