Steven Adams signed a two-year, $25.2 million extension with the Grizzlies on Saturday, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Grizzlies now have Adams' signed through the 2024-25 season, and he should remain their starting center for at least the next three seasons. His days of being a valuable fantasy asset are past him, as he barely finished inside the top-200 last season and hasn't had a top-100 year since 2018-19. He's ranked 163 on a cumulative scale for 9-cat leagues in Rotoworld's 2022-23 Draft Guide. His value is found in his rebounds and defensive stats, as he averaged 10 boards, 0.9 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game last year.
Ben Simmons (back) will make his Nets debut in Monday's exhibition game against the 76ers.
Simmons has been practicing without any restrictions after missing all last season, but no decision was made regarding his availability for Monday's game. Nets coach Steve Nash made it official Sunday evening, announcing that Simmons will be available to play. How much he'll play remains to be seen, but the exhibition will allow Simmons to establish some in-game chemistry with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and the rest of the Nets rotation. While he is more than capable of offering up top 50 value, Simmons' recent health history could make some managers hesitant to pick him that high in drafts.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Heat and Tyler Herro have agreed to a four-year extension worth $130 million.
Days after he said that he was leaving the contract extension talk to his agent, Herro received the "right number" and is now locked in with the Heat for the next five seasons. One of the top sixth men in the NBA last season, the 2019 first-round pick made it clear during the summer that he views himself as a starter. Whether or not Erik Spoelstra agrees will be determined during the preseason, but it's clear that the Heat view Herro as a key team member.
