The News The Heat picked up the team option on point guard Mario Chalmers on Thursday. Our View Chalmers wasn't owed much money, so the Heat decided to pick up the option instead of letting him become a free agent. Still, he's not a strong starting option so the club will likely target a point guard in the draft and Chalmers will be a depth player.

Dalembert dealt for Nocioni and HawesPosted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 555 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News The 76ers have dealt Samuel Dalembert to the Kings in exchange for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes, according to ESPN.com. Our View Dalembert failed to develop into the offensive player that Philadelphia hoped he would, but there's no denying his presence on the defensive side of the floor. He'll provide a shot blocker and fine rebounder in the middle of the Kings' frontcourt to go along with the smaller but more offensively-skilled Carl Landry.
Nocioni lands in PhiladelphiaPosted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 555 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News The 76ers have dealt Samuel Dalembert to the Kings in exchange for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes, according to ESPN.com. Our View Nocioni will still have to serve a two-game suspension following his plea of no contest to a DUI charge in March. The bringing in of a small forward like Nocioni could be an indicator that the 76ers may be leaning toward drafting Derrick Favors over Evan Turner with the No. 2 pick.
Bynum likely to be ineffective in game sevenPosted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 556 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Andrew Bynum, who has said he will play in game seven of the NBA Finals on Thursday, isn't likely to give the Lakers many minutes, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. Our View He barely played in the second half of game six, and it just doesn't seem likely that he will be able to give much in game seven. With Boston's Kendrick Perkins unable to play, however, Bynum's absence will not hurt the Lakers as much as it otherwise would have.

The News New Nets coach Avery Johnson spoke of Devin Harris and mentioned "I can give him the reigns (to my system) now," according to the Nets twitter feed. Our View Harris played his first couple of seasons under Johnson in Dallas, and the two were sometimes at odds. Harris thrived once he got to New Jersey, although his proneness to injury remains a big concern. He should be able to bounce back in 2010-11 along with the rest of the Nets.

Kidd willing to embrace reserve rolePosted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 558 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Jason Kidd says he would be willing to come off of Dallas' bench next season, according to the Dallas Morning News. Our View Statistically, Kidd had a great season in 2009-10, shooting over 40 percent from behind-the-arc, while averaging 9.1 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. He has lost a step, however, and Dallas might be best served by having Roddy Beaubois in its starting lineup.
Pistons dangling Prince?Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 558 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News The Pistons may be trying to trade forward Tayshaun Prince to the Kings for the fifth overall pick in next week's draft, according to the Detroit News. Our View Considering the Pistons already have the number seven pick in the draft, it's unlikely they would deal one of their cornerstones to move up only two spots, but you never know. With a roster so flawed, it's hard to say what they should do this offseason.
