Mon Feb 10 202017:23Surprising Grizzlies ahead of team's rebuilding schedule
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies' rebuilding plan is ahead of even the most optimistic schedule,They have won more games before the All-Star break than predicted and currently hold the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference standings.“We had high hopes for what this group could become, and I think it's fair to say that this group has already exceeded I think any realistic expectations that anyone had internally or externally,” Memphis general manager Zach Kleiman said Monday. Kleiman talked to reporters Monday for the first time since the trade deadline. The Grizzlies are 3-1 in February and have won 14 of their last 18 and are 27-26 overall — a game above what most sports books expected this season.It's a quick turnaround from just over a year ago when Memphis was breaking up the final pieces of a group that set a franchise record with seven straight playoff appearances that ended in 2017.The Grizzlies traded center Marc Gasol to Toronto.

Thu Feb 6 202020:46Hectic end to the NBA's trade window, but some teams sat out
MIAMI (AP) — Most of the top NBA playoff contenders stayed out of the down-to-the-wire frenzy at the trade deadline.Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers beefed up instead.And a slew of other teams — including the Golden State Warriors — made moves with short-term finances and long-term ramifications in mind.The NBA’s 3 p.m. EST deadline Thursday for trades to be consummated did not arrive quietly, with a flurry of deals getting struck in the final hour and at least one other notable move falling apart before reaching the finish line. Deals that included at least 41 players and 15 future draft picks were struck on either Wednesday or Thursday — the biggest move likely being the one Thursday that saw Andrew Wiggins going from Minnesota to the Warriors so D’Angelo Russell could leave Golden State finally be paired with his good friend Karl-Anthony Towns with the Timberwolves.Here's how busy the Timberwolves were at trade-deadline time: They announced the jersey numbers of eight ...

Fri Nov 13 201516:16Raptors assign Caboclo, Nogueira to D-League
The Toronto Raptors assigned forward Bruno Caboclo and center Lucas Nogueira to Raptors 905 of the NBA Development League on Friday.Both players are expected to be in uniform Saturday night for the first game in Raptors 905 history when the team visits the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.Caboclo made his NBA season debut Wednesday at Philadelphia, going scoreless in one minute. He appeared in eight games with the Raptors last season, totaling 10 points, two rebounds and 23 minutes. He saw action in seven NBA D-League games in 2014-15 with Fort Wayne, averaging 3.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 8.9 minutes. A native of Osasco, Brazil, he was selected 20th overall by Toronto in the 2014 NBA Draft.Nogueira has appeared in two games this season with the Raptors, recording three points, one block and one steal in five minutes.

He also played in four D-League games in 2014-15 with Fort Wayne, averaging 8.2 points, 10 rebounds and 20.1 minutes. A native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he was selected 16th overall by Boston in the 2013 draft. Nogueira was acquired by Toronto in a trade on June 30, 2014. Both Caboclo and Nogueira will continue to be included on the Raptors' roster and will remain on the team's inactive list.
Tue Sep 29 201521:01Caboclo had team option for 2016-17 season picked up on Tuesday
Caboclo had his team option for the 2016-17 season picked up on Tuesday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo reports.
The option was for just over $1.5 million, so it's an affordable price to continue the development of the former first round pick. Caboclo played in just eight games during his rookie season, registering averages of 1.3 points, and 0.3 rebounds over three minutes per game. Caboclo also saw some time in the NBA D-League, posting averages of 3.4 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.7 blocks over nine minutes per game. Considering his role likely won't be increasing much for 2015-16 season, continue to avoid him in most fantasy situations.

Caboclo finished the summer league season averaging 12.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 2.0 three-pointers in 30 minutes per game.
Caboclo fired away every chance he could, including a 2-of-12 performance from downtown in the final of five games. He shot 35 percent from the field and made 10-of-19 free throws during the tournament, failing to record an assist until the final game. Caboclo is still a bit underdeveloped, and it's a good bet he'll spend most of the upcoming season in the D-League.
Mon Jul 13 201510:31Caboclo added 20 pounds of muscle during offseason
Caboclo added 20 pounds of muscle during the offseason, NBA.com reports.
The second-year forward turns 20 years old in September, and he spent most of his rookie season glued to the bench or in the D-League. Through two summer league contests, he's averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.0 steals in 30 minutes per game while shooting 29 percent from the floor. He still hasn't recorded an assist or block, and while it's imperative he add weight to his frame, Caboclo isn't likely to have a dramatic impact this season.
Sun Jun 14 201518:40Caboclo will play with Raptors' Summer League team
Caboclo will play with the Raptors' Summer League team, TSN reports.
Caboclo didn't see much time as a rookie, playing in just eight games in the 2014-15 season. General manager Masai Ujiri drafted Caboclo with the 20th pick in last year's 2014 NBA Draft, and ESPN's Fran Fraschilla was quick to follow-up the drafting of Caboclo with the now-famous quote, saying the Brazil native was "two years away from being two years away." The 19-year-old small forward is being brought along slowly, and the Raptors plan to have him develop with their forthcoming D-League team next season, meaning, unless Caboclo shows tremendous growth over the offseason, he's unlikely to play a significant role for the Raptors next season.
Tue Apr 28 201513:19The Raptors plan to develop Caboclo in D-League
The Raptors plan to develop Caboclo in the D-League, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
The Raptors are in the process of purchasing their own D-League team, and it could come as early as next season. If that's the case, Caboclo will likely spend plenty of time developing at the lower level, as he's considered a few years out from truly contributing on a nightly basis in the NBA. As a rookie this season, the fan-favorite appeared in only eight games, scoring 10 points in 23 total minutes.
Sun Mar 8 201517:42Caboclo recalled by Raptors on Sunday
Caboclo was recalled by the Raptors on Sunday.
Caboclo has bounced back and forth from the D-League and the NBA this season. One thing remains constant however, the rookie rarely sees time on the court with the Raptors. In fact, he's played a total of 16 minutes this season and remains insignificant across all formats besides keeper leagues.
Wed Feb 18 201512:38Caboclo reassigned to Fort Wayne of D-League on Wednesday
Caboclo was reassigned to Fort Wayne of the D-League on Wednesday.
With the Raptors set to play four games in five nights, Caboclo would see limited practice time, so the team will send him back to Fort Wayne, where he'll play in two, possibly three, games before returning to the Raptors.
Fri Jan 2 201511:30Caboclo called back up from Fort Wayne of D-League, Raptors' web...
Caboclo has been called back up from Fort Wayne of the D-League, the Raptors' website announced.
He didn't see much of the court with the Mad Ants, averaging just 13.0 minutes over three games with 4.3 points and 2.7 boards, but that's still more playing time than Caboclo has seen all season with the Raptors. The rookie will continue his development in practice and on the bench.
Thu Dec 25 201410:07Caboclo assigned to Fort Wayne of D-League on Thursday
Caboclo was assigned to Fort Wayne of the D-League on Thursday.
Caboclo is expected to play his first game with the D-League squad Saturday, but it's undetermined how long he may remain there. He'll remain on the Raptors' roster as a member of the inactive list until he's officially recalled. The Brazilian rookie has appeared in just three games for the Raptors this season.

Caboclo finally saw some action on Friday, playing the entire fourth quarter and scoring eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3P) with a rebound and a block during a huge win over the Bucks.
With the Raptors cruising to a 41-point win, the teenage rookie made his long-awaited NBA debut and flashed the array of skills that made him the surprise 20th overall pick in this year's draft. Caboclo looked a little lost on the defensive end and won't see any action this season when a game hangs in the balance, but dynasty league owners who took a chance on him have to like what they saw on Friday.
