The Summer League has wrapped with the Spurs taking home the crown, and Slim and I break down all of the performances from summer including the meteoric rise of Myles Turner, the catastrophic fall of D’Angelo Russell, and how, well, none of the summer ball stats mean too much…  We also talk the Ty Lawson trade and where we’ll have Emmanuel Mudiay ranked for 15-16, along with a ton of other rookies and young guns and how they looked this summer.

    Love your guys podcasts and site. So hard to find dynasty basketball info it’s insane. Let alone good fantasy basketball info period. You guys are the best! So as of right now wjat would be your top 10 dynasty rookie assets?

      @Jeff: Thanks so much for checking us out man! We really appreciate it!

      Whewwww that’s a good one. My personal order would probably be:
      1 – Towns
      2 – Mudiay – I think I’m going on a little bit of a limb here though.
      3 – Myles Turner. Opportunity now is a big boost
      4 – Porzingis
      5 – Russell
      6 – Justice Winslow
      7 – Stanley Johnson
      8 – Okafor. Low blocks and awful FT really hurt fantasy upside in dynasty
      9 – Cauley-Stein
      10 – Eesh, I guess Hezonja, but man I love Oubre. I don’t think they’re too different long-term, Hezonja should play more right now.

      Leaves out Kaminsky. I think he’s a long-term role player. I could get talked into shuffling those around a tad, but a great question and maybe I ask Slim for his on the next Pod next teus…

      Thanks for stopping by!

      @Slim: @Jeff: Interesting on Mudiay being MCW-ish, I could see that happening… BOOOOOO OUBRE IS MINE! haha. Slim I know likes Kaminsky more than me, I just don’t see enough happening there

      @Jeff: @JB Gilpin:

      I’ve mentioned my league in the comments before, we play with a salary cap, but we have keepers. Obviously this means hitting on rookie picks is a must to be competative. I don’t want to talk about how valuable BROW is in thisformat…… That contract extesion can not get here fast enough.

      I’m leaning toward Turner as my first rookie. Seems like he has the cleanest path to min now and good upside. Mudiay and Hezonja are on the short list.

        @Jensen: Yeah, so you play in that cap league that mimics league contracts right? Turner with the smalled deal – yeah makes him more valuable

        • Jensen says:

          @JB Gilpin: We have an extra roster spot than a real NBA team so we have a higher cap than the real NBA cap but its a hard cap unlike the NBA system. This year we are at 75M for 13 roster spots.

          Yeah, Turner’s contract is lower and I think his potential for this year is much higer than other rookies. I have Whiteside and Vuc as big man keepers. So Turnr would slot in as my 3rd big.

            @Jensen: Definitely agree with that, I think in the Pod we agreed Turner has a great shot to be fantasy’s #1 rookie this year, and his contract in a cap league prob makes him #1 to nab. But in non contract dynasty, I still think Towns’ upside is mammothian. Mammothous? Mammothful? Turner is a great fit next to your bigs too – helps the low blocks from Vuc and amps up the ft%

    Sounds like a plan. A few I notice, I’ve got Russell ahead of Mudiay. He’s just such a better shooter and there’s no guarantee Mudiay ever turns into a decent shooter, MCW 2.0? Maybe. I like Porzingis #2, sure you might have to wait a little longer, major emphasis on ‘might’ though. I like Turner and he looked good vs terrible competition but I don’t think his ceiling is anywhere near Porzingis. But I do still have Turner top 5. I know Winslow wasn’t 100% but he looks WAY behind Stanley and I think Detroit probably made the right pick, plus Stanley has less competition for playing time. If JB won’t do it then I will, Oubre > Hezonja. Oh and sure Cauley-Stein is a better player than Kaminsky but he’s low end points, poor FT%, not really a fantasy asset. He should give solid steals/blocks but I don’t think he’ll give Noel level stl/blk. I still have Kaminsky higher for our purposes.

    What do you expect from Batum?

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Toni Vidal Ribes: Ummm, ya know pretty solid/steady 50-60 overall value with one or two rainbow lines that are flashy, but something like 10/6/5/1/0.5, honestly right at his numbers from last year. Except he’ll shoot more like 46-47% unlike the horrific 40% from last year that really hurt his final rankings

    Whats up guys? You think yahoo will do the same BS they did last year and change the rankings at the last second to help clueless people? Lol

    I’m wondering what’ll happen to Draymond this year…15-25 range? I stole him at around pick 96 last year thanks to you guys LOL

    Oh by the way, it’s R-I-P city!

      @CTMN: @CTMN: R-I-P city, yes yes yes! That is friggin awesome.

      Yeah Yahoo tends to do that. Unveil a really bad initial rankings, then tweak it maybe 2 weeks before the season that makes a lot more sense. It’s like they need ADP data to fix themselves haha.

      Yeah 20ish sounds about right – I think I will have him exactly 20. Per minute he’s a first rounder, but the Warriors are gonna be in so many blowouts haha. Nice work man! yeah shockingly we were the only rankers to have him top 100 of all experts on FantasyPros. Nuts right?!
