I still remember the hype for Cheick when he was coming up with the Pels. He’s officially passed the baton off to Hamidou. Daigneault only played eight guys even through OT and as a result, multiple players saw minutes in the forties. Diallo can pass the ball a bit and contribute across the board, so he’s worth keeping an eye on.

    Hey Nic great work
    Head to head category
    Would you do kyrie for vuc or fox/ boucher bledsoe?

    Drummond vuc cousins

    Thanks Ben, appreciate it.

    Vucevic for Kyrie is probably winning, but Kyrie’s always a bit of a liability in terms of games played.

    Fox and Boucher is intriguing, or did you mean one of Fox/Boucher plus Bledsoe? In which case, pass.

    If Kyrie addresses your team’s needs I’d take that one. I’m fine with holding Vucevic though.

    • Ben says:
      (link)

      I feel like I need a center more, but I typically prefer the better player and am worried about kyrie not playing. Or how much his stats going down when the team is healthy
      Trade was fox bledsoe and boucher for vuc you know?

      • Nic

        Nic says:
        (link)

        Gotcha, Bledsoe is looking pretty bad in New Orleans and Boucher is going to be frustrating to own as his minutes are matchup-based.

        I’d just hold Vucevic then. Kyrie isn’t enough of an upgrade if you’re worried about him missing time.
