Jordan Hamilton SF TOR 6 Days

Hamilton scored 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3P, 2-2 FT) with three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 21 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Celtics.

He looked good at both ends of the court, something that hasn't always been the case in his career, and Hamilton seems intent on winning an NBA job this preseason, whether in Toronto or with another club who notices his improved performance.

Hamilton scored 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3P) in 20 minutes of court time off the bench during Tuesday's preseason game.

He's battling Greg Stiemsma and Will Cherry for the final available spot on the Raptors, and while Stiemsma's ability to protect the rim probably gives him a big advantage in that competition, Hamilton won't hurt his chances if he continues to provide these kinds of minutes in the preseason.

Hamilton will be in a training camp battle with Will Cherry and Greg Stiemsma for the final spot on the Raptors' roster, the Toronto Star reports.

Hamilton might be the best fit of the three from a roster construction perspective, but he'll also need to prove he can buy into coach Dwane Casey's defensive system at least a little if he's going to get serious consideration.

Hamilton signed a one-year deal with the Raptors on Thursday, Sportando reports.

Always viewed as a high-upside player in the right system, Hamilton has struggled to find a home in the league. He's spent time with both Denver and Houston, where he closed out 2013-14. In three NBA seasons, Hamilton owns career averages of 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. Toronto is not overly deep on the wing, and Hamilton will surely challenge James Johnson and Landry Fields for minutes behind Terrence Ross and DeMar DeRozan.

Jordan Hamilton got his first start in a Rockets uniform on Saturday during a 118-110 win vs. the Pistons, scoring 13 points, four boards, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He fit right in tonight for his new team as he was able to attack the basket and take six 3-pointers. Hamilton has been in double figures for each of his last three games and looks to be in the rotation. Although, Chandler Parsons (illness) not playing tonight and garbage time in the first of those three helps inflated his stats a bit. There's little reason to add him for Tuesday's game.

Jordan Hamilton will start at small forward for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

It's his first start with his new team after being acquired at the trade deadline last week. Hamilton has been used in 24 minutes for each of the last two games, averaging, 14.0 points, 4.0 boards, 1.5 steals and 3.0 triples. Fantasy owners can look his way for a plug-and-play.

Jordan Hamilton played 24 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in a loss to the Clippers Wednesday.

Omri Casspi didn't even get off the bench tonight and Hamilton is a guy you'll want to put on the radar going forward. He was recently acquired from the Nuggets and looks like a better player than both Casspi and Francisco Garcia. He also had 12 points and two 3-pointers on Tuesday, and it looks like Kevin McHale likes him.

Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton continues to be discussed in various trade talks on Thursday, according to Yahoo! Sports.

That's all we know at this point. Hamilton has been starting and playing well with Ty Lawson sidelined and could be a decent role player for another team, just like he is for the Nuggets right now.

Jordan Hamilton started again for the Nuggets and had seven points, four rebounds, a steal and a block on 3-of-7 shooting in Tuesday's loss.

He went off for 16 points, six rebounds, seven assists and three steals in his last game before the break, but couldn't do it again tonight. As long as Ty Lawson is out with a broken rib, Hamilton looks like a starter for Denver, but will be inconsistent for fantasy owners who choose to roll with him.
