  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Inks deal with Cleveland

    Niang agreed to a three-year, $26 million contract with the Cavaliers on Friday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Niang spent the past two seasons with the 76ers and averaged 8.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 2.0 three-pointers on 44.2 percent shooting from the field in 2022-23. Entering his age-30 season, Niang figures to be a key contributor for Cleveland's second unit. The veteran forward has shot 40.3 percent from deep in his career and will instantly boost Cleveland's perimeter shooting.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Good to go for Game 1

    Niang (knee) isn't on the injury report ahead of Game 1 versus the Nets on Saturday.

    Niang sat out the regular-season finale with a knee soreness label, though it was likely more likely that he was just resting ahead of the postseason. Niang should settle back into a bench role for Philadelphia after making a spot start in his final appearance. In 19 bench appearances since the beginning of March, Niang averaged 6.4 points and 2.1 rebounds over 18.7 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Ruled out

    Niang (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Nets, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    The 76ers have nothing to play for, so Niang will join the rest of Philadelphia's regulars on the sidelines. In his absence, Danuel House, Jalen McDaniels and Furkan Korkmaz are candidates for increased roles.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Questionable for finale

    Niang is questionable for Sunday's game against the Nets due to left knee soreness.

    During Friday's win over the Hawks, the 76ers ran out a skeleton crew, where Niang played 31 minutes and totaled 24 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal. With a similar situation set to play out Sunday, if Niang sits out, more minutes could be in store for Jalen McDaniels, Danuel House and Furkan Korkmaz.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Drops five triples in spot start

    Niang totaled 24 points (9-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Friday's 136-131 overtime win over Atlanta.

    Niang matched Jalen McDaniels with a team-high 24 points in the loss, helping carry the team to an unlikely victory. While Niang can light it up on the offensive end, this is obviously not a performance we should get used to. Outside of being a sporadic streaming consideration, Niang doesn't hold much value outside of the deepest formats.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Getting spot start

    Niang will start at power forward in Friday's matchup with the Hawks, Kyle Neubeck of reports.

    Niang is starting due to the 76ers opting to rest all their usual starters. Thus, he is in line for a relatively healthy workload.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Scores 14 in win

    Niang chipped in 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 116-108 victory over the Mavericks.

    Niang was held below 10 points in his last three appearances, but he posted his highest scoring total since March 4 during Wednesday's victory. He's made 15 appearances this month and has averaged 7.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 19.6 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Drops two triples in loss

    Niang contributed eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and four rebounds over 23 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Niang, along with a host of his teammates, saw additional run in the loss. The 76ers were done and dusted by the fourth quarter, affording the fringe players to close the game. Niang is a player who can get hot from the perimeter, but when the team is healthy, his role is typically under 20 minutes per night, nowhere near enough to produce 12-team value.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Adds 12 bench points

    Niang finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during Friday's 120-119 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Niang continues to do damage from beyond the arc, where he scored all 12 of his points Friday night. He's now 12-for-20 from deep over his last four contests, averaging 10.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists. While he's been hot of late, the Iowa State product has put up double figures in only two of his last 11 appearances and doesn't typically add much value in other categories.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Tallies two points vs. Cleveland

    Niang racked up two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes during Wednesday's 118-112 win over the Cavaliers.

    Niang had scored at least five points in his last four appearances, but he had limited looks from the floor Wednesday and was unable to impact the scoreboard much. Over eight appearances in February, he's averaged 6.8 points and 2.8 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' Georges Niang: Drains four threes in win

    Niang recorded 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt) and one rebound over 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 126-119 victory over the Nuggets.

    The veteran forward continues to provide the Sixers with a long-distance threat on the second unit, although he doesn't offer much else from a fantasy perspective. Niang has drained multiple three-pointers in 10 of 13 games in January while shooting 48.4 percent (32-for-66) on his attempts, but on the month, he's averaging just 9.2 points, 2.7 boards and 1.2 assists a game.
