      Jeremy Lamb should be rostered. If Harris is Gary Harris, then I’d make that swap. If it’s Tobias, then I’d swap out Nunn/Quickley.

      I’d also swap Theis for Nunn/Quickley since it looks like you could use some help in big man stats.

      Other than that, keep an eye on Cole Anthony, who’s trending up.

        Haha, it was Joe Harris. He was great up until Harden arrived. Sigh. I really wish Thib didn’t hate rookies and that he’d just start Quickley every game instead of giving him minutes every 3 games.
