  • 76ers' Darius Bazley: Set to debut Thursday

    Bazley signed a 10-day contract with the 76ers on Monday and is set to make his debut Thursday. During his last NBA stint in 2022-23, Bazley shot 37.7 percent from three across 43 appearances for the Thunder and Suns.

  • 76ers' Darius Bazley: Joins 76ers on 10-day deal

    Bazley agreed to a 10-day contract with the 76ers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Bazley has been a standout this season for the 76ers' G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, averaging 20.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 2.6 blocks, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 34.2 minutes per game over 24 appearances. The 2019 first-round pick hasn't appeared at the NBA level in 2023-24, but he saw action in 43 games last season, averaging 5.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per contest between the Thunder and Suns.

  • Darius Bazley: Let go by Brooklyn

    The Nets waived Bazley on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

  • Nets' Darius Bazley: Top rebounder off bench in win

    Bazley finished with five points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 24 minutes in Thursday's 135-103 preseason win over Ra'anana.

    Bazley owned the glass during a bench-leading minute total, hauling in a team-high rebound mark and finishing as one of two Nets players with 10 or more boards in Thursday's preseason win. Bazley has seen a good amount of playing time off the bench through two preseason contests, averaging 4.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals over 21 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Darius Bazley: Finds work in Brooklyn

    Bazley agreed to a one-year deal with the Nets on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Bazley gets a fresh start in Brooklyn after the Suns declined to extend him a qualifying offer and elected to let him walk in free agency. After struggling to find a spot in the Phoenix rotation last February upon coming over in a trade from the Thunder, Bazley could face a similar conundrum in Brooklyn. At the moment, all of Cameron Johnson, Nic Claxton, Royce O'Neale, Ben Simmons and Dorian Finney-Smith are expected to be ahead of Bazley for playing time at forward or center.

  • Darius Bazley: Becomes free agent

    Bazley wasn't extended a qualifying offer from the Suns on Thursday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Bazley had a limited role with the Suns after being traded from Oklahoma City to Phoenix in February. He averaged 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game over seven appearances with the Suns and will become an unrestricted free agent after the team chose not to extend him a qualifying offer.

  • Suns' Darius Bazley: Closes season well

    Bazley provided 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 119-114 loss to the Clippers.

    Bazley had his best game since arriving in Phoenix, taking advantage of a game that mattered very little for the Suns. While Bazley can put up intriguing numbers from time to time, he had basically been out of the rotation prior to the past couple of games. Based on that fact, there is almost no way he plays meaningful minutes once the playoffs begin.

  • Suns' Darius Bazley: Cleared for Tuesday

    Bazley (trade pending) has been cleared to potentially make his debut Tuesday against the Kings, according to Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic.

    T.J. Warren has also been cleared and those two will be competing for minutes on a team that is shallow at the forward position while Kevin Durant (knee) continues his rehab. We'll see if Bazley gets an opportunity after playing a very limited role with the Thunder.

  • Suns' Darius Bazley: Won't debut Friday

    Bazley (coach's decision) won't make his Suns debut Friday against the Pacers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Friday is the end of a five-game road trip for the Suns, and Bazley is expected to meet up with the team in Phoenix at some point, likely before Tuesday's game against the Kings. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect much of an uptick for Bazley, who figures to be a depth option in the frontcourt when everyone is healthy. He may get a boost while Kevin Durant (knee) remains shelved. The Suns acquired Bazley from the Thunder on Thursday in exchange for Dario Saric and a 2029 second-round draft pick.

  • Suns' Darius Bazley: Traded to Phoenix

    Bazley was traded from the Thunder to the Suns on Thursday in exchange for Dario Saric and a second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After averaging 29.5 minutes per game over the two seasons prior to the 2022-23 campaign, Bazley saw his role diminish greatly this year, as he averaged just 5.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game over 36 appearances to begin the season. The Suns also acquired Kevin Durant (knee) and T.J. Warren ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, but Bazley will attempt to carve out a role in the team's frontcourt with Saric -- as well as Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges -- now out of the picture.

  • Thunder's Darius Bazley: Limited role continues in loss

    Bazley chipped in three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and one steal over nine minutes during Monday's 141-114 loss to Golden State.

    Bazley logged fewer than 20 minutes for the ninth consecutive game, continuing what has been a highly disappointing season to date. While he has been a relatively consistent piece of the rotation, it would appear as though the team does not see him as a significant part of its future. He can be a sneaky source of both boards and blocks when afforded meaningful minutes, but at this point, that feels unlikely to occur.

  • Thunder's Darius Bazley: Limited to six minutes in win

    Bazley had one point (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) over six minutes during Wednesday's 126-106 win over Indiana.

    Bazley had played double-digit minutes in the last three matchups, but he saw decreased playing time during Wednesday's comfortable victory. He's been an inconsistent member of Oklahoma City's rotation recently but has averaged 6.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game over his last four appearances.

  • Thunder's Darius Bazley: Two straight DNP-CDs

    Bazley has been a DNP-Coach's Decision in the Thunder's past two games.

    When asked about Bazley's absence from the rotation, coach Mark Daigneault responded that he's "rifling through guys" but noted, "it always comes back around," implying the forward will see the floor again relatively soon. The Thunder's rotation remains arguably the toughest to predict in the NBA, with the team constantly experimenting.

  • Thunder's Darius Bazley: Upgraded to available

    Bazley (illness) is available for Wednesday's game versus Portland.

    Bazley has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday after missing the last three games with an illness. Bazley might make his second start of the season against Portland after making his first in his previous appearance.
