If you like your men big, I got a Buy/Sell that will knock your panties off. First up is Tyler Zeller. On Monday, I wrote: “Despite beefy minutes (38), he only went for 13 points, 14 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 blocks. On the other hand, he still got 13 points, 14 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 blocks. He has double digit points over the last 3 games, plus an average of 3 blocks and 10 rebounds during that time.” And that’s me copying and pasting me after browsing through my post, written by me! ME. Me me me me me. Where were me? Oh, yeah, over the past 4 games (rebounds/blocks), he’s 10/6, 14/3, 9/2, 6/4. How’s that ring your zell?
Ed Davis – I know he sounds like the guy who’s worked in accounting for 17 years and has a coffee mug that says “#1 Dad,” but this guy has been a solid choice at PF or C. He’s still only 40% owned, and he’s been giving those 40% of owners 15 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists every night. What do you need? Blocks?
Amir Johnson – Okay, so you want blocks. Sacrifice some points (13 instead of 15) for a block, and you still get 8 rebounds, 2 1/2 assists, and 1 1/2 steals. Bam. Even better than Davis, and he’s only 43% owned. That’s it, I quit!
Shannon Brown – Alright, I’m back. He’s not a big man, but over the past week, he’s been producing 16 points, 3 1/2 boards, 2 1/2 assists, and 4 steals. Those points have been steady all month. He’s 24% owned. Don’t guard your heart, guard your team! Okay, one caveat: this is a soft buy. Don’t trade a guy like Nicolas Batum for him. Drop Jason Terry (see below) for him.
Kyle Korver – Over the past week, he has been a top 15 player with 16 points, 4 threes, 4 1/2 boards, 2 dimes and a steal. His production will come down, especially as Atlanta sorts itself out with injuries, but he has still been a decent option for a while now. May as well grab him in a non-sexual way while his decency has become indecent in a sexual way.
Jason Terry – Over the past 2 weeks, he’s averaging a miserably 5 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists and 1 steal in less than 20 minutes (including 2/2/3 last night). This guy may be a “dump” at this point. If Terry is a pirate, he walked the plank a long time ago.
Marcus Thornton – You probably should have ditched him a while ago, but now he’s worse than ever. His only value came from points and threes, and those have been low. Since returning on January 12, he’s scored 18 or more points twice and 8 or less 5 times. He’s 9 for his last 29 from downtown. What else does he have to do for you to give up on him?
