“Wahhhhhhh, I’m Jarrett Jack!”

He’s.  Just.  So.  Sad!  Cheer up, buttercup!  Deron Williams is just plain terrible these days…  Which means starting minutes!

Even though he didn’t set the world on fire last night (16/3/2/1/0), Jack seems to have a stronghold on the Nets starting PG spot.  With the range for treys (one 3PTM the past three games) and a great FT%, Jack is a must-own in all leagues for me.  However, there is a major concern.  The Showcase Showdown!  Brooklyn is trying to pawn Williams off like a bad case of gonorrhea, and sometimes you have to coax out the virus before it goes away!  Hah – let’s hope that’s not true, totally making that up (cough, cough…).  With another bajillion dollars left on D-Will’s contract, the injury-riddled walking kankle is a tough sell.  Then again, maybe keeping him off the bench will protect him from another injury making him go from normally hard to sell to “leave him on the curb and hope someone takes him” hard to sell.  Regardless, most teams even in 10ers should have room for Jack, as I think it’s likely he starts the rest of the season for the soon-to-be rebuilding Nets.  And there’s no one else that’s even waiting in the wings…  So pick up Jack where you can if he’s still out there, if only to cheer him up!  Here’s what else went down last night in Fantasy Basketball action:

Rimgate – Washington at Houston was delayed 35 minutes due to a crooked rim, noticed a few seconds after tipoff.  “Hey Dwight Howard, we need you for a rim job!”  Even Superman couldn’t bend it back in place.  I didn’t do much reading on it, but wouldn’t the team warming up on that side have noticed?  Then there’s conspiracy theories that the odd rain delay last year in DC when Houston was in town was 35 minutes as well.  Ummmm, what?  So they bent the rim in Houston just to “show the Wizards up?”  “You got us, nice prank guys!”

Bradley Beal “Can’t feel my face!  No, seriously guys, I hit my head on the rim…”  10-10 FT shooting 9-17 including 5-11 3PTM for a 33/5/3 line.  While the steals boost has been nice, we haven’t talked about Beal much.  He’s taken a small step back this year rather than forward – who knows, maybe the broken wrist threw him off course this season…

Kris Humphries – Had some nice games after getting demoted, but then went all -ut awful last night.  0-6 FG and 4 fouls in 12 minutes.  Kanye is a Rockets fan!  Case solved.

Josh Smith – Oh man, am I glad I traded him in the REL!  23 minutes of projectile vomit.  1-6 FG (0-1 3PTM – yes, another missed 3-pointer – and 1-4 FT) 3/4/0/1/0 with 4 TO.  Might be the most brutal 23 minutes a starter has given us all year.  Michael Carter-Williams is like, “Wahhhhh I’m MCW!”  To drop Smoove, or not to drop Smoove… That is the question.  10ers – unless a desperate need for out-of-position steals and assists – I’m moving on.  12ers it depends on who is out there.

Corey Brewer – Might rather own Brewer, as sad as that sounds…  15/0/3/2/1 hitting 2 treys in 28 6th man minutes.

Jimmy Butler MVP!  MVP!  No seriously though…  Wow, OK, my bad everyone I was late to the party.  Since when is it cool to be EARLY to the party?!?!  27/9/1/4/1 last night, and while I have been cautioning he was due for a little regression, it’s not like I didn’t love him on draft day.  Hard to not consider him at the end of the first round if we were drafting for the rest of the year today.

Nikola Mirotic There was a report Chicago was trying him at some SF, but he’s just not athletic enough on D to keep up with most NBA 3s.  Only 11 minutes last night, and while awesome when he gets run, he’s only worth owning in 14ers or deeper right now.

Lavoy Allen Dammit Youth Movement in REL!  If you’re reading, can we be on a first name basis yet?  I tried trading Austin Rivers for Ya Boy, Lavoy and got a straight up “Nuh Uh Girlfriend!”  6/8/5/0/4 and criminally underrated this year.  Roy Hibbert had 4 fouls in 16 minutes, and after looking perhaps overly-jaded in preseason, Hibbert playing horrific yet again is making my 113 rank look fairly appropriate.

Jared Dudley The world makes no sense!  How is Milk Duds remotely relevant?!?!  17/9/2/1/0 last night, hit 5-10 FG, 5-5 FT, 2-4 from downtown, all with no TO.  6 straight usable games with a steal/trey in each one, and 2+ 3PTM in 5 of those 6.  14-team worthy?  Probably…  But as a very short-term guy, and I can’t see using him in 12ers but then again, I recommended Jerryd Bayless as a stream last night and Dudley was miles better in twice the minutes.

John Henson Back-to-back 5-block games.  21 minutes of “Oh yeah, I should be playing him more” – Jason Kidd.

Al Jefferson – I almost made the lead about his groin, but it was too sad on too many levels…  Came out in the 4th quarter due to the strained groin he suffered a few games back, and looking like some DNPs could follow to get it right.

Marvin Williams One of the oddest lines of the season…  8/14/3/3/0, yes, 14 REBOUNDS!  For Marvin Williams?!?!  Dudley & Williams, confounding fantasy owners one league at a time…  Hit his usual couple of treys, and since starting PF Cody Zeller could shift to C, Williams has some short-term appeal while Big Al has a big ouchie.

Kemba Walker The weirdness just keeps coming!  4 blocks last night in a 28/1/4/2/4 game.  Brandon Knight had 8 TO and 3 shots blocked, yet the Bucks still won in OT…  “Wahhhhh, I’m a Hornets fan!”

Victor Oladipo A nice bounceback game (22/2/4/3/0) but 5 TO and still not changing my mind that I’m selling for almost anything.  As I mentioned yesterday, facilitating is through Elfrid Payton (8 assists) and scoring is through Tobias Harris (14 shots) and Nikola Vucevic (17), both taking more attempts than Oladipo’s 12 last night.

Luol Deng With Chris Bosh back, went back to being Luol Deng

Danny Granger – 6 treys for 21 Pts last night and now 18+ points the past two games.  Uhhhhh, chicken???

Mason Plumlee Hack-a-Plum!  10-16 FT, both career-highs.  I guess 63% isn’t too bad!  22/4/1/3/1 and like Jarrett Jack, the incumbent starter behind him is atrocious.  Brook Lopez for 11/6/0/0/0 is fine I guess, but Mason is freed!  He’s a freemason!

Rudy Gobert Monsieur Elbow!  You can’t stop the Frenchy!  Playing with his elbows more violently than the Texas A&M’s coaching staff!  11/13/2/1/0 in 25 fantastic minutes, hitting 5-7 FG and 1-1 FT.  No blocks, but I had completely missed he was on a 9-game multi-block streak!  JaVale McGee-esque!  4 of those 9 games were under 20-minutes, which I’m mostly bringing up to underscore I still don’t 100% buy his viability given the role.  Which is unfortunate.  In that 9-game stretch, Gobert racked up 24 blocks.  Enes Kanter has 23… wait for it… blocks AND STEALS COMBINED on the YEAR.  Wowzer.

Alec Burks Out again with a cold shoulder.  I’m pretty sure that’s something they teach you to do in D.A.R.E. too…  The looming surgery in the offseason may loom into this year if it keeps giving him issues.  Rodney Hood started in his spot, with one of his better lines on the year of 9/7/5/2/1 with a trey.  Deep league owners should be sure and check under the Hood.

Blake Griffin Rainbow alert!  24/6/7/2/3 but 6 TO.  Coming into last night, he was the 59th ranked player on Yahoo.  Remember a month ago when I said I was worried!?

 

Streamers/Cheap DraftKings Picks:

Rudy Gobert (32% owned) – I know I just said I don’t 100% trust him long-term in shallowers, but if you have an open spot on the heavy slate tonight, he’s worth a Twirl against the Twolves.  Twill get a lot of minutes against a team with no backup C; likely twill be some Jeff Adrien run in there which is a major mismatch.  Plus Gorgui Dieng rolled his ankle last Saturday, and might be a little sore even though it’s not on the Twinjury report.

Kyle O’Quinn (19% owned) – What does an Irishman need to do to get minutes?!  Well, he needs a big front line to go against him, and DET fits that to a T with Greg Monroe at the 4.  When teams are going small even in the slightest, the Magic are putting Evan Fournier at the 3 and Tobias at the 4, which won’t work against Andre Drummond and the Moose.  KOQ’s gonna break back out tonight.

 

So I’m back tomorrow, but off for New Year’s Day and January 2nd.  Then we’re finally through the Holidays and back to the 5-a-week schedule!  Be sure and start stocking up on some champagne/crown & cokes!

    looking at trying to get something for TJones in a 14er weekly H2H … been offered GGreen or Gobert for Jones and Smart … are either of those offers worth giving up my Smart stash?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dirk’s Digglers: In a weekly… I’m gonna lean probably not, Smart has more upside IMO over Gobert in a vacuum because Gobert needs an injury or trade to fully hit on potential. Boston could run out Smart 35 minutes a game any time

  2. Wen says:
    (link)

    Hi JB, a desperate owner fighting for the last playoff spot just dropped Lance Stephenson and Thaddeus Young. Would you drop Robert Covington for either one of them? I really like Robert Covington’s upside, but Young seems to be must own. Thanks for your advice!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wen: Yeah I’m with you, I’d have to own Young if given that opportunity. Not for Stephenson though, he’s hot garbage haha. Any time!

  3. Youth movement says:
    (link)

    I grabbed Lavoy fairly early in the REL auction for a buck hoping he would give good backup center minutes and knowing Hibbert only plays well in the playoffs against the Heat. He’s still relatively young, but undersized. He did block nearly two a game his final year at Temple. I picked him up last year in a different 20 team dynasty and rode him for awhile. I wish I knew Oladipo was available, I would have gladly packaged Allen for him. I still see a little D Wade in Oladipo.

    • A Hill O' Beans says:
      (link)

      @Youth movement: I was thinking exactly the same thing when I was watching Wade vs Oladipo last night. Very similar. Check out the PER36 stats for their age 22 seasons, keeping in mind Oladipo is only part way through his, and he was injured at the start.

      45% / 75% / 1.0 / 15.7 / 4.1 / 4.2 / 1.6 / 0.1 / 3.0
      46% / 75% / 0.3 / 16.8 / 4.2 / 4.7 / 1.5 / 0.6 / 3.3

      Oladipo is actually shooting 39% from 3 so far though, whereas Wade shot 30%. The only other big difference is in blocks, but Oladipo had 0.5 PER36 in his rookie year, so there’s potential there.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Youth movement: I looked at your team and didn’t see a great package, but maybe we coulda worked something out. I threw out the offer I got, which got a few counters then @A Hill O’ Beans: threw back the first offer and we were good.

        Like I said, $ and roster comp were big factors. Just not liking his mix with the O, but if he were under $10 no way I would do that. I needed some $ flexibility.

        Here’s one for you guys:

        Oladipo: 45% / 75% / 1.0 / 15.7 / 4.1 / 4.2 / 1.6 / 0.1 / 3.0
        Player B: 41% / 73% / 1.1 / 15.3 / 2.8 / 4.8 / 1.4 / 0.3 / 3.7

        Lemme know what you think! It’s not a full-season worth of stats from player B

        • Youth Movement says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: @JB Gilpin: Would that be the guard you got back in return? Percentages are a little high. I’m guessing those are his games started numbers.

          • A Hill O' Beans says:
            (link)

            @Youth Movement: Ha, I see you went with Wroten as a starter and I went with Wroten as a bench player, haha. His numbers as a starter are actually quite a bit better than those, with the exception of FT% and TO I think.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @A Hill O’ Beans: @Youth Movement: Yeah obviously the trade gave it away 🙂 It’s actually Wroten’s last 9 games, all off the bench behind MCW. FT% is getting better and less minutes means less TO. Just crazy how close those lines are. Not that I expect Wroten to be anywhere near as good as Oladipo.

        • A Hill O' Beans says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: I hear ya on the keeper cost, which is why I was hesitant. In the end I was gonna need guards in the draft next year, and I was gonna spend close to $30 on one anyway, so why not get a 22 year old #2 pick with lots of upside now and be done with it. I see why, with the money you were already spending, it made complete sense to sell for a couple $1 picks with their own upside. In addition to needing a big man.

          As for the comp, it looks a lot like Udrih’s age 22 season. Not quite though, and close to Wroten’s numbers coming off the bench this year too. Again though, not quite it.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @A Hill O’ Beans: Yup you were all around the comp! I kinda miss Udrih already, but no one else was droppable as I like Snell a lot as a stash. I think we both feel good about it. Good doin business with ya!

  4. Thunder from Down Under says:
    (link)

    Just picked up Jarrett Jack for P-Bev and about to get Tristian Thompson for Stoudemire. Do you think these are good moves? I also have thaddeus young who I’m more than willing to drop. Would you drop him for any of these guys on the waivers: Jennings, West, Wiggins, George Hill, Redick, Louis Williams, Muhammed or Aldrich. I really need assists and boards. Thanks mate.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Thunder from Down Under: More with the TT add over STAT. I can’t blame the Jack move, I still like PBev a lot though. Honestly I’d rather Jack & Pbev over either of the bigs, without knowing roster comp. Needing assists – sure I’d grab Jennings for Young, he’s been playing better. Any time!

  5. Slim

    Slim says:

    I think I need to temper expectations for Jack… here’s a projection.

    .440/.840/0.9/14.0/3.5/5.0/0.8/0.2/2.5 :32 min

    in otherwords… yawn…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: I think he plays a lot more than 32 minutes once Dwill is gone. More points. Wayyyyy more steals. He has at least 1 steal in 8 straight. Ok, maybe not “way more” looking at track record, but I’ll give him over 1.

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: per 36s for his career is 1.0. Guys just don’t get better at steals at age 31. His per36s at age 23,24,25 is 1.2. Per 36s the last 4 years is 0.8. I say under 1.0 steals even in 36 min per game.

        • Slim

          Slim says:
          (link)

          @Slim: oh and the 3s… he’s 3-fer-5 over his last 3 games. He isn’t a 60% 3pt shooter. Even if he manages 2 3s attempted per game he’s still going to be well under 1.0 made per game. My 0.8 per game number is probably too high.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Slim: I think he attempts 2-3ish. Gimme right at 1 3 and 1 steal, plus those more points and the TO is spot on which is good for the numbers he’d give. Yawnstipating you said on the pod! But ownable

    Good morning JB! I’ve been in 1st for three consecutive weeks (16 teams, 9-cat H2H), and I’m lovin’ it! As always, thanks for your insights and recommendations, and thanks in advance for answering my Q’s!

    1. I’ve loved having CoJo & Brooks on my team the past week or two. Is it time to let either go, even in a 16’er? Any thoughts on what Pop will do with CoJo/Mills’ minutes?

    2. Should Asik be dropped even in a 16’er? He does very little these days, no one in my league wants him, and his playoff sked is mediocre at best.

    3. I’m following your advice and holding onto Speights for now, but he hasn’t topped 22 mins in 5 games now. His high usage is good, but something to monitor in the near future or no?

    For the Q’s above, top FA’s currently are Aldrich, Granger, Henson, Jerebko, and Pachulia. If you see an obvious add for my bottom 4 (CoJo/Brooks/Speights/Asik), please let me know!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clay: Awesome, good work man! Hope we helped!

      1. Mills is def a concern for Cojo, and he shouldn’t be! Love Cojo. Rather him over Brooks for the long haul, but wow, yeah Brooks has been conistsently pretty good. Depends on who you’d drop for.

      2. Yup, no problem losing Asik. Rather drop him over the PG.

      3. Definitely worth monitoring with Bogut back around the corner.

      Defffff wanna grab Aldrich. For Asik. Henson is close, but still not fully trusting the minutes with Sanders about back, Ilyasova to be eased in… Two 5 block games in low minutes are a little flukey, but keeping a close eye on hi,.

  7. Seb says:

    Hey how would you rank these three in overall value for the rest of the year: Calderon, RJax, and Jack?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      @Seb: Slim might vastly disagree, but I’m going Jack, Calderon, RJax. RJax has only spiked again with KD out. Any time!

    Picked up Henson when he had his first 5 block party. Have him on all my teams. All 16 teams.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Nice! Yeah above I said he wasn’t “must-own” since I still worry about the role moving forward. Bucks HATE HIM! I dunno why haha. No Sanders in either of those games, just as a caution flag.

      @Hamtime: 1. Whewwwwwww. Might be. I need to see KD healthy before giving up all that. 2. If you need a big, sure. 3. Elfrid in a vacuum, actually kinda think he’s a good tier or two ahead of those other guys.

  10. Shaft says:
    (link)

    I’m such an idiot. I was at all the Bulls home preseason games this year and Jimmy G. Buckets looked just as good as he has been this whole season. I had a shot at drafting him in the SIXTH round but took kemba Walker because I actually thought to myself “Jimmy looked so good, but offensively he was so challenged last year it must just be preseason d-defense making him look good.” And then of course he was taken the very next pick by the guy I share my season tickets with. So not only did he get the steal of the century, I have to hear about it every damn Bulls game. Never again.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Shaft: Oh damn…. By the guy you share tickets with…. YIKES! Haha I’m laughing to myself right now, that’s so brutal. I woulda taken Kemba first too, if it makes you feel at all better… Jimmy’s ADP was like in the 80s though! Not like you made a terrible draft day decision at the time…

      @jb Gilpin @slim: that’s great! Was feeling v good about it anyway but feeling better now. I’ve been playing around with my streamer position and picked up Covington to give me what I had expected from Wilson c, but with better %s. But I’m sitting here watching the Detroit game and seeing Meeks go off. Granted that he’s a thragnof, he’s a very good one and if he does indeed get 30+min he should surely put up similar numbers to what he was doing at the end of the season last year yes? So my question: Covington or Meeks?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Still Covington. Given he was awful as were all Sixers yesterday, he’s still bangin’ treys and bringing a lot more to the table than Meeks with his 3s and steals only.

    So. I missed out in Jack, missed out on Ed Davis, missed out on len LOL. All for this “upside” in Marcus smart. Haha I hate him, and this gambler on smart isn’t looking too bright. Drop for Adams, lavoy allen or henson?

    Thanks 🙂

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Brendon: Hah, I have Smart in a league or two as well, and probably missed on some options… Yeah gimme Adams if you need a big! But if you don’t have a need there I’d cross my fingers and hold

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @Brendon: I picked up Smart, but then immediately dropped him after two duds. At first I thought it was because of the ankle injury he was dealing with, but he’s definitely over that.

      It seems to me that he needs more time to develop in order to be a fantasy relevant option. (steals and some assists are there, but not much else) Also sharing some minutes with Nelson and Lil’ Pressey doesn’t help his case. I don’t know how other leagues are responding, but I dropped Smart about a week 1/2 ago and not one person has bitten in a league full of Celtics homers.

      Unless you really need assists and steals, I’d drop for Adams. Seriously he just keeps on getting better and better. Plus that stache..

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Ryan: Well he had the sore Achilles too, but yeah looks a little raw. Wow, surprised none of the homers want him.

        The big thing for me with the above question is it’s a weekly league. So he can afford having him on his bench with no penalty. If he didn’t need a big, then stashing Smart with no consequence would be how I’d do it. I do love me some-a-dat stache!

    Although it’s a bit of a stretch to compare Oladipo to a young Wade, I tend to agree with the previous commenters in that he’s not as expendable as you’ve alluded to the last couple of days. That being said, let’s talk potential players to target for him? I’m in a 12-team H2H keeper league in an interesting position with regards to the playoffs (i.e., my division is terrible I’m going to make it in although I don’t have enough to compete with the “big boys” of the league). So not afraid to package one of my vet’s (e.g., George Hill, Dwayne Wade or Nicolas Batum) who’s not in the long-term plans.

    Looking to swap Oladipo for another guard or forward of similar age. I like the following players as targets (not necessarily “straight-up”): Andrew Wiggens, John Wall, Jimmy Butler(?), Eric Bledsoe, MCW or Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal favorite). Am I way off here? Who do you like the best long-term out of the aforementioned?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Peter Nincompoop: Easily Butler as a long-term get. Oladipo for Butler in a keeper isn’t even close to me. Well, obviously Wall a tad over that too, but I don’t think he’d be easy to get. I’d rather MCW in a dynasty. Oladipo+Wade for Butler? For Wall? Would love either of those!

      @Henry: Thanks man, hope you are as well! Yup, I think Butler is locked in now. Indeed would rather have him over MIllsap, even though I like Millsap a lot still. Any time!

    JB & SLIM

    Team looking good so far thanks for the draft help.

    Have following stashed on my team for ROS and upside by the time playoffs come
    Meeks, Smart, Jose and Convington

    Should i be dropping anyone of them for the guys on the wire below? My team needs 3’s and steals and low TO’s the most and FG%

    On the wire:
    Dudly, Jack , Len , Cole Aldridge , Brewer, Granger , Tim Hrdwy JR, C Lee, LIN, Jerebeko, Barnes

    gracias amigos

      @GL13: Brewer seems to hit perfect. Rather him over Meeks, probably over Smart too even though I like him as a stash. Like Jack a ton too. Low TO hits your needs. I’d get Jack and Brewer for Smart and Meeks. De nada!

    T Thompson

    Cheers!

      @Lee:
      Ps I’m doing well in pretty much all cats but FG% and Asts

        @Lee: Def adding him, probably Thompson since Rebounds aren’t a need for ya

          @JB Gilpin: awesome thanks! Fingers crossed

    JB,

    I’ve been holding onto TJones all year. Is it time to finally drop him? I’ve missed out on waiver wire “studs” so far, but Jack is on the wire. Should I drop Jones for Jack? (9-cat, 12-team, H2H, daily line-ups)

    G: Curry, Lowry, RJax, Rubio (INJ)
    F: Wes Matthews, Shabazz Muhammad, Dudley, Middleton, TJones (INJ)
    C: Horford, Jonas, Olynyk, Len, Gobert, Bogut (INJ)

    Thanks, and happy holidays!

      @RP: Yup, I think so. Def getting Jack. The Smith signing in HOU has me worried they have no faith he’s gonna do much for em this year. Any time, happy holidays!

    Hey JB/Slim, who do you guys like more for ROS – Ilyasova, Gobert or Aldrich? Also – Stuckey, Hood(read Burk’s injury might be season-ending) or Karasev? Thanks!

    Hey jb posted on the last blog about jack and if I should drop Pbev you told me to drop Burks because of his shoulder and how he just has the points upside.. Good call man! Got the notification on my phone about ten minutes after I made the drop about how he’s out for season ending surgery and that guy had the balls to tell you to up your game lol.. Good call man!

      @Clos: Hahahaha thanks man! Appreciate it! Tough blow for Burks though… Slim is very sad I’m guessing – he’s a big Burks fan.

    Hey JB,

    14 Team H2H (11 CAT w/ FGM and FTM)

    Punting blks and rebs generally. Although I’ve won

    Lillard, Lawson, Smart
    Knight, Lou Will, CLee
    Hayward, JButler
    Deng, Carroll
    Al Jeff, Markieff

    Just lost Burks for the year.

    What looks the most appealing?

    -Robin Lopez, TJones stash (maybe trade value down the line at the worst, given my team makeup)
    -Tucker, Allen, MBarnes, MKG, Karasev, JR Smith, Patty Mills, Jerebko, Marvin

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      @J: Yeah I can see the REB/BLK punts. I don’t think I’m stashing Jones or Lopez. Leaning Marvin Williams short-term while Jefferson is out. Think the minutes can be shifted around for him. Past that probably MKG. Any time man!

    How are you doing?

    I continue with several doubts on my team. My bigs now dont look as a safe option at all: KOQ and Pat Pat are performing under what they used to and I dont think COle Aldrich can mantain those numbers for long…

    Alternatives? Hot free agents:

    J. Dudley Mil – SG,SF
    D. Granger Mia – SF
    M. Williams Cha – SF,PF
    R. Hood Uta – SF
    C. Zeller Cha – PF,C
    E. Payton Orl – PG
    Z. Pachulia Mil – C
    M. Barnes LAC – SF
    B. Biyombo Cha – C
    A. Bargnani NY – PF,C
    J. Nurkic Den – C
    P. Mills SA – PG
    D. Exum Uta – PG
    M. Morris Pho – SF,PF
    C. Watson Ind – PG
    J. Jerebko Det – SF,PF
    J. Johnson Tor – SF,PF
    C. Andersen Mia – PF,C
    V. Carter Mem – SG,SF
    J. Freeland Por – PF,C
    L. Scola Ind – PF,C
    M. Kidd-Gilchrist Cha – SF

    The rest of the team (16 team, 9cat league) is Conley, Holiday, Fournier, Meeks, McLemore, Batum, James, Dray Green, Favors and Sanders

    Thanks again for your help and have a great New Years Eve

      @Lawson: I’m good man! KOQ is out for James Johnson. PitPat vs. Marvin Williams with Jefferson out… 3s aren’t really a need… MKG and Freeland are interesting to me actually. Seems big man stats could help, I kinda think Freeland is locked into a decent role. It’s a roll of the dice, but fits your needs more than PitPat. Have a good new years!

    I just dropped my boy J Lin (*sniff*) for Jared Dudley 🙁

    Was that the wrong move, or might that have been the right thing to do?

      @orloeno: Haha sure I like it 🙂 But don’t think Dudley is long-term, don’t see you missing Lin though
