nERD
-1.3

Most Recent Player News

Los Angeles Clippers forward Lance Stephenson and forward Josh Smith appear to be on the trade block as the team reportedly gauged trade interest for the two players last month, according to Yahoo Sports.

What It Means:

No deal appears to be in the works, or even on the table, but this isn't surprising considering both Stephenson's and the Clippers' poor starts to the season. Considering his player-friendly contract, we find it more likely Stephenson is cut than traded. He and Smith remain off the fantasy radar.

Stephenson is scoring 5.3 points in almost 19 minutes per game and has earned a -3.2 nERD on the year. Smith is averaging just over 15 minutes a game and has a -2.9 nERD on the year.
