Is there anybody who would not take KG with the #1 pick?

Duncan's minutes fell off a tad last year, and Shaq is always injury-prone. LeBron might be my #2, at least in the league scoring system where I play (gametime, basketball.sports.ws). Cleveland's improved depth might keep him from playing those 44 minute games he had last year, though.

I hadn't gotten that far but before the knee came up I was at least considering Amare.

Extremely young, numbers went up a ton last year, back to his true position at PF, two-position player depending on your format and the Suns were minus Q and JJ meaning they'd need even more production from him.

Not sure I'd have decided that way but the thought had more than crossed my mind. TD gets consideration only because of two positions.

Well I think KG's supporting team has dropped off so yeah it's a tough one

I'd Still go with Lebron as everyone says this is his year....MVP..

Lebron just because i think he'd get more Triples then KG....

I did take Amare w/ my #1 :cry:

Ouch, My condolences do0d... thats gonna hurt right in the gonads...

on my fantasy board the owner says he wasn't gonna trade him for anything but an All Star.. wishfull thinking... but i mean this is the keeper league so it might pay for the future...

Thats a Good Question, What is Amare's Trade Value now... can you get something or just pray he comes back at the back end of the season with some Monster Games....

is he worth a Tayshaun Prince or an Allen Iverson...

Depends if you can cover him i suppose as to how cheap he'll go..

looking at my rankings, you have 7 players in the top 75 on my list.

I'd say that if your league has 10 teams, yours is OK but not great.
If there are 14 teams or more, your roster is pretty strong. Eddie Jones is most expendable. Finley, Rose, and Mike Miller are pretty ordinary and similar to one another. Of those 3, I personally like Miller best for consistency and minutes.

FBA: Preseason Looks

By Jason Langendorf of Scouts Inc.

Wait, you didn't honestly believe I could be contained by one sport, did you?

Don't automatically assume the football guy is some one-trick pony. Just ask the fellas down at Chicago's Eugene Field Park about the 6-5 point guard, and they'll tell you ... OK, on second thought, don't listen to a word those guys say. You'll just have to take my word for it: I got a basketball jones.

And believe me, I'm jonesing right now. The acrobatic playoffs stylings of Manu Ginobili seem like ancient history. The NBA draft was about as glamorous as laundry day at the Langendorf household, and it was a relatively slow offseason for trades and big-money free-agent signings. Truth is, I nearly wet myself reviewing statistics of the Rocky Mountain Revue. (Yes, I should get out more.)

But the moves still matter, especially to fantasy owners. Who woulda thunk guys like Charlotte C Primoz Brezec and Portland C Joel Przybilla -- and any other seven-foot Z-boys who have slipped my mind (C Zaza Pachulia notwithstanding) -- would play productive roles with new teams last season? And then there are the Eric Snows and Brent Barrys, who steal our hearts and sink like lead zeppelins. Hate those guys.

Determining whom to avoid can be just as important as figuring out whom to target, so here are the 10 most important offseason changes -- for better or worse -- fantasy players need to know:

F Antoine Walker and PG Jason Williams, Heat
This could be the ugliest mishmash of talent since the boys in Monty Python stopped making movies. The theory, I assume, is that Walker will thrive as a 3-point gunner working inside-out with C Shaquille O'Neal and that his ball skills will help keep the offense from bogging down in the half court. Williams is another long-range bomber who, I guess, can help create space in the paint for Shaq and, uh, lead the break. But with G/F James Posey and PG Gary Payton also on board, neither Walker nor Williams figures to get the minutes to put up enough of the good numbers (points, rebounds, 3s, assists) to offset the bad (turnovers, cruddy percentages). The biggest loser in the equation, I fear, is PF Udonis Haslem, who had a breakout 2004-05 but could lose the playing time he needs to rack up rebounds and make his strong shooting clips really count.

SG Larry Hughes, Cavaliers
Don't get me wrong: I like Hughes. Nice player. Good story. But his union with SF LeBron James could enter the Pippen-Barkley pantheon of bad pairings by January. New Cleveland GM Danny Ferry covered himself a bit by bringing in PG Damon Jones after the fact, but Hughes and James probably are too similar -- explosive slashers who are erratic shooters from the perimeter -- to share the same court without one of them taking a serious statistical hit. Jones is the team's only dangerous 3-point shooter, and neither C Zydrunas Ilgauskas nor PF Drew Gooden is a true inside player. So who will keep opponents honest when the Cavs try to isolate James or Hughes? Will they get in each other's way on the break? James is king in Cleveland, so Hughes' numbers are more likely to suffer. And because both players crave the ball in their hands and Jones isn't a great ball handler, turnovers will be a nuisance for both. One more thing: Hughes has played in more than 67 games in a season only once in his eight-year career.

F Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Kings
You could do worse than Abdur-Rahim as PF Chris Webber's replacement if you're Sacramento, but don't expect C-Webb-like numbers from the new guy. Abdur-Rahim doesn't block shots like Webber, and he doesn't have near the ball skills (career assist average: 2.8). Things turned out surprisingly well for him in Portland last year, and his numbers could even improve in an offense with a true point guard and better supporting players. And because SAR spends more time in the low post than Webber does, his presence could help boost G/F Peja Stojakovic's 3-point numbers back to their '03-04 heights.

G/F Joe Johnson, Hawks
Everyone get a good look at what happened to Kobe Bryant, a truly great player, in L.A. last year? Now imagine Johnson, merely a good player, in the same boat -- only one with more holes and a crew of sailors barely old enough to shave, let alone drink. Atlanta has been stockpiling long, athletic swingman types the last two years, a la Indiana. But unlike the Pacers, the Hawks don't have the veterans to usher in the new era slowly. It's just Johnson, F Al Harrington and, well, Zaza. You can bet Johnson will increase his scoring and 3s and perhaps his assists (the offense could run through him), which will be great in scoring leagues and some roto formats. But you might as well pencil him in for a 40 percent field-goal shooting clip and three-plus turnovers per -- as if Hawks fans (and fantasy owners) didn't get enough of Antoine Walker last year.

F/C Stromile Swift, Rockets
Swift has his problems -- he isn't very physical, doesn't shoot worth a damn and has trouble staying healthy -- but you can't deny that he puts up valuable roto numbers when he's on the floor. In 21.0 minutes a game over five years with the Grizzlies, Swift averaged 1.5 blocks, kept his turnovers down and shot well from the free-throw line for a big man. I'm a little troubled by his sagging rebounding numbers and field-goal clip, but another 8-10 minutes a game and working alongside C Yao Ming could make a world of a difference for Swift. If he qualifies at center in your league, he could pay big dividends as your No. 2.

G/F Bobby Simmons, Bucks
Simmons doesn't seem the type to rest on his laurels, but it wouldn't be the first time we've seen a contract-year guy blow up and, after getting in touch with his inner Trump, blow out with his new club. And even though I can't put my finger on it exactly, Milwaukee has a weird mix of talent that makes me worry. If Simmons can put up efficient numbers with the Clippers, maybe we shouldn't worry too much. But where are swingmen Desmond Mason and Jiri Welsch supposed to play, and will they mess with Simmons' minutes? Will key setup man PG T.J. Ford snap in half the first time PG Chauncey Billups posts him up? How long before C Andrew Bogut grows that porn-star mustache back? These aren't easy questions.

SG Bonzi Wells, Kings
Another Sacto addition who doesn't look great on paper but could turn into a fantasy success story. Wells has a history of burning up bridges practically before they've been built, and his attitude has affected his minutes at times in the past. But away from the 10-man rotation in Memphis and backcourt shuffling of Portland a few years back, he could (and probably is expected to) log about 35-plus minutes a game, which would be a career high. Considering Wells has averaged as many as 17.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.6 steals and has shot as well as 53.3 percent from the field and 77.8 percent from the line at various times in his NBA career, he could explode in a wide-open offense. At his position, only Wells' 3-pointers and turnovers are a little weak.

SG Cuttino Mobley, Clippers
The Kings obviously didn't love what Mobley gave them last year (mostly his defense), but in a 43-game tryout, he still put up some of the best numbers of his career. Think he isn't capable of the same, and maybe more, in La-La Land? Perhaps no team in the history of professional sports has generated more garbage-time stats for its constituents than the Clippers have. And because Mobley is this team's only legitimate sniper and PF Elton Brand and C Chris Kaman actually draw some attention inside, he could lead the league in 3s made and approach 20 points per game.

F/C Kwame Brown, Lakers
Trust no one who tells you he knows what Brown will do in a Lakers uniform. If I told you I had a clue, I'd be lying. But here's what we know about Brown: He withered in an awful environment early in his career in Washington, and the Wizards never seemed to nurture him and give him the sort of moral support and leeway any normal college-age kid needs. Brown's physical gifts are considerable, and his competition in L.A. amounts to C Chris Mihm and PF Slava Medvedenko. Perhaps no coach in the history of the game has been better qualified than Phil Jackson to coddle and coax the talent out of Brown, but ultimately it's up to an enigmatic 23-year-old whether he wants to be a player.

G Marko Jaric, Timberwolves
Jaric is one of those players who looks a lot better on a fantasy roster than in an NBA lineup. No respect for his game? Who cares. If you don't go after guys like this (PG Rafer Alston, SG Quentin Richardson and PF Vladimir Radmanovic, take a bow) in the middle and late rounds of your drafts, you're a knucklehead. Honestly, what I like least about Jaric is that he annually misses 20 or so games. His shooting percentages? Big whoop. Most NBA point guards today shoot in the low 40s from the floor, and I can live with Jaric's relatively clunky free-throw touch if he gets me six assists, 1-2 steals and a 3-pointer a game while keeping his turnovers low -- all of which he did last season. The Wolves have a lot fewer scorers than they had in the past, so Jaric could raise his scoring to 13-15 points per game."

FBA: 2006 Sleepers

By Jason Langendorf of Scouts Inc.


Like rainbows and Gary Coleman, sleepers are something everybody loves.

Yet even as we embrace them, we aren't sure what to make of them (also true of rainbows and ersatz Arnold Jackson, but now I'm only referring to the sleepers). Don't get hung up on the jargon. A fantasy sleeper, put simply, is any player who has value in a given league who exceeds generally accepted expectations. Lots of room for interpretation there, I know. But one person's sleeper is another's surefire starter and yet another's waiver-wire flotsam.

Just know that because leagues vary so drastically in depth and styles and categories scored, it's almost impossible to package any player beyond the game's elite in a way that translates to every fantasy owner. And if you abide by that logic (or what passes for it), you'll find some of the sleepers I've listed below to be useful and others mere curiosities. (Specifically, I'm writing to that group of Pacific Division-only 23-category keeper-league owners in Smelterville, Idaho, who undoubtedly will form a posse to hunt me down like the dog that I am for wasting their time with this column. Just relax. Perhaps I'll cover Zarko Cabarkapa and Smush Parker in a future column.)

G/F Josh Smith, Hawks
Smith is a statistical oddball, but in a good way. A skinny 6-9 swingman who has lacked the handle of a guard and the go-to move of an impact scorer, he nevertheless is capable of racking up points, rebounds and swats -- the last one being key. Smith, who ranked 12th in the league in blocks per 48 minutes (3.37) as a rookie, offers his owners a lot of flexibility at the power positions in roto leagues because he can help cover a tough category at a shooting guard or small forward slot. Inconsistency marred his play last season, but players with his size and athleticism don't come along often and he has more to give in the assists and 3s departments, maybe as soon as 2005-06. Sixteen points, eight boards, 2.5 assists, 2.5 blocks and a steal a game are attainable.

C Joel Przybilla, Trail Blazers
A career stiff who didn't come on until the second half last season in a forgotten NBA city, Przybilla has zero cachet (read: should come cheap). And at 7-1, with decent hands and a strong sense of his own limitations, he should have no trouble matching or bettering his per-game post-All-Star break numbers in the rebounds (9.7), blocks (3.4) and field-goal percentage (56.1) categories that compose the bulk of his value. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar he's not, but as Portland's only source of low-post scoring behind PF Zach Randolph, Przybilla could be a double-double machine and is legitimately capable of leading the league in blocks and field-goal shooting.

G/F Josh Howard, Mavericks
Howard is a do-it-all type whose surroundings in Dallas are both a blessing and a curse. He draws less attention from defenses and gets better playmaking help because of the Mavericks' superior talent, but Howard also suffers because SF Jerry Stackhouse, G/F Marquis Daniels and new addition G/SG Doug Christie are similar players who command playing time. At his best, Howard is an eight-category player, but to take the next step, he needs to earn a few extra minutes while refining his shooting touch (at the line and from the perimeter) and showing more consistency. Given his strong playoffs run, it isn't out of the question.

PG Luke Ridnour, SuperSonics
Shrimpy, pasty-faced Ridnour has built a fast following with his funkadelic game, but can he push his numbers into the fantasy-starter neighborhood this season? It won't help that wingmen Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis hog so many shot attempts, but Ridnour at least should absorb some of the minutes, scoring and assists of departed G Antonio Daniels. If Ridnour raises his shooting from the floor a few ticks (though 40.5 percent isn't awful for a point guard these days) and takes it to the rack more often (the better to exploit his 88.3 percent clip from the line), we'll really be on to something. Bonus: Folks in turnover leagues will love his efficiency with the ball (3.24-to-1 turnover-to-assist ratio in '04-05).

SF Mike Dunleavy, Warriors
Dunleavy put up only decent numbers last season, but all signs point to his moving up a notch or two on the statistical ladder. He has improved his bottom line in most categories in each of the last two seasons, and things really started to click for him in the second half of last season, specifically after the arrival of PG Baron Davis (when Dunleavy's shooting percentages took off). He's only 25, and he probably still is filling out his frame. Dunleavy never will be a banger, but if he adds another rebound and a couple of points to his scoring clip in '05-06, he'll be a top-50 player who comes at a top-100 price.

C Chris Kaman, Clippers
To the jaded, Kaman entered the league as just another token mid-major, NCAA tourney-starring, 7-foot white guy who would follow the Todd Fullers and Jim McIlvaines on the short track out of the NBA. But the open-minded saw Kaman's mobility, athleticism, decent jump shot and ability to go to either hand. He built on his rookie-year stats last season, increased his averages from the first to the second half, and in April averaged 17.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.3 blocks against San Antonio, Utah (a good defensive team) and Phoenix. Granted, it was April. Yes, they were Kaman's only three games in the month (a back injury bogged him down). But the progress is undeniable. Whether Kaman is ready for more minutes -- and whether, on a team with PG Sam Cassell, SG Cuttino Mobley, SF Corey Maggette and PF Elton Brand, he ever will see the ball on offense -- is less certain.

PF Al Jefferson, Celtics
Jefferson has the strength of a bull moose, but he also played defense like one as a rookie. Finishing ranked 16th in the league in rebounds per 48 minutes (14.2) and 48th in points per 48 (21.7), Jefferson showed obvious potential. But he got nowhere near that magical 48-minute figure because of his conditioning and propensity for fouls (8.9 per 48 minutes, fourth-highest in the league). He worked on his body over the summer and could be ready for 25-30 minutes a game (which Boston should be willing to give him). He won't deliver 3s or assists like some of the league's top, more dynamic big men, but Jefferson could produce like a poor man's Shaq (without the center eligibility) as soon as this season.

SG J.R. Smith, Hornets
Transplant Smith, a rookie last year, to the 2000-01 Utah Jazz squad, and you basically have SG DeShawn Stevenson. Scary, but true. The difference: Smith is a better athlete and has a sharper shooting touch than he showed last season. More important, New Orleans stunk last season, so Smith logged big minutes as the team unloaded talent at yard-sale prices and, uh, built for the future. On the bright side, Smith improved steadily as the season wore on and could develop into one of the league's better scorers if he builds up his body and discovers a midrange game. Better playmaking (hello, PG Chris Paul) and decent help inside should help 6-6 Smith shoot a higher percentage on 3s as a soph. Besides, who else is gonna score on that team?

PG Sebastian Telfair, Trail Blazers
I had serious doubts about a 6-0 high school point guard, especially one who happened to hail from New York and claim Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury as a cousin. How does anyone live up to that kind of hype? Well, Telfair made a nice go of it despite sitting behind PGs Damon Stoudamire and Nick Van Exel for much of the season and possessing virtually no jump shot. Telfair likely never will be a serious 3-point threat, but he has gotten stronger and clearly has a knack for finishing plays -- whether at the rim, at the line or putting a teammate in position for easy points. After averaging 12.5 points, 6.7 assists and 1.36 steals and shooting 45.3 percent from the floor in April, Telfair now is the Blazers' starter at the point.

PG Shaun Livingston, Clippers
Yet another straight-from-preps second-year player? So sue me. I can't help it if the league keeps drafting 'em -- especially if the boys keep proving they can ball. Livingston makes believers out of everyone who gets to see him in extensive action, but fantasy owners weren't among them: Because of injuries, the Ticonderoga-thin 182-pound rookie played only 30 games last season. Then again, when Livingston played, man, did he play. His 11.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists over Los Angeles' last 10 games only scratched the surface of his ability. At 6-7, he fills passing lanes (steals potential!) and harrows shooters (blocks potential!), and he can get his own shot or knock down spot-up jumpers. Livingston's upside really knows no boundaries, though that skinny bod and Cassell are immediate obstacles."

I expect q. rich to warm the bench and Walker's FG% to go up in Miami... we have 13 per team and 10 teams.. it is head to head

I already see 2 problems on your team......you have 2 Pistons as your starters!!! :shakehead . J/K.

The only real catagory that I see is that you may need some additional help in the Assists catagory. That appears to be your weakest catagory. Also...I would look for another Center and/or PF who block shots. As the 2nd backup Center....Magliore is a good choice...but as the primary Center...he isn't as good as he used to be cuz his FG% ( less then 45% ) and BPG ( averages about 1 bpg ) over the last 2 season has really sucked it up for a Center. Since you are stacked at the SF spot....I would look to dump either Miles or JJ to make room.

Most of your top 100 picks are okay, but I don't know why you have Ron Artest at No. 21. He's a good player but the fight at the Palace last year will destroy his game because he will be watched real closely by the referees. I think he will have the most flagrant fouls in NBA history this season, and he's going to get into arguments with players like Kobe, Tracy, and Ben Wallace with his football style play on the court. If I was an Indiana GM, I would trade him ASAP. – Terrell, Detroit, MI

Fantasywise.....there is not one player on the Pistons starting lineup that should be picked ahead of Artest. The best fantasy player that the Pistons have....Ben Wallace....would definitely be taken after Artest.

This guy just gives the standard Detroit fan response when it comes to commenting about Artest. Clearly he won't be a saint....but he's not the anti-Christ that most Piston's fans make him out to be.

I'm playing in a Yahoo league, which hasnt given C eligibility to Kurt Thomas or Tyson Chandler (at least yet)

I've just been proposed a trade: I get Troy Murphy for Tyson Chandler.
Just wondering what u guys think.

Heres my current team:

PG - Jamaal Tinsely
SG - Ray Allen
G - Ricky Davis
SF - Lebron James
PF - Jermaine O'Neal
F - Kurt Thomas
C - Zydrunas Ilgauskas
C - Eddy Curry

CableKC
10-24-2005, 01:21 AM
If you trade Chandler for Murphy, here are the pros and cons:

With Murphy, you will get more PPG scored and a good amount of 3pt shots made.

In losing Chandler, you will lose some rebounding ( maybe about 2+ RPG on average ), lose big time in Block shots ( cuz Murphy doesn't block any shots ) and your FG% will be lower ( cuz Murphy is a mid-range PF shooter and Chandler is more of a low-post scorer....but doesn't really score that much ).

In the end, you will go up in PPG and 3ptM but will go down ( a bit ) in rebounding, block shots ( a lot ) and FG%.

With the Center position....both have a chance of becoming Centers on Yahoo. For Chandler, its obvious why. For Murphy...there is a smaller chance that he will start at the Center spot for the Warriors as they will run smaller lineups throughout the year ( like they did last year ).

If you ask me....I wouldn't trade Chandler cuz you have no other shot blockers on your team. For a 7 foot Center....Curry rebound and block as many shots well as Dwayne Wade ( for a Center...that really sucks ).

"Oct. 24, 2005
Modified: Oct. 25, 2005
FBA: Category HelpBy Jason Langendorf
Scouts Inc


The easiest thing in the fantasy world is to make a first-round pick in an NBA draft. Easier than a Paris Hilton joke. Easier than a 16-game season against the Houston Texans. Unlike football and baseball, basketball has very few DEFCON 1-level disasters waiting to happen. And you know who you are, Daunte Culpepper and Curt Schilling.

Later picks are even tough to muff in hoops leagues. Full-fledged breakouts usually are those everyone sees coming or aren't entirely apparent until two months into the season, after someone who took a shot in the dark on the waiver wire realizes they've struck gold with a GF Bobby Simmons or PG Damon Jones. The mega-flops often turn out to be the aged (PG Sam Cassell) and infirm (PF Chris Webber), players savvy owners tend to avoid or downgrade in the draft anyway.

But leagues often are won with late-round or free-agent gap-fillers, particularly roto leagues. I'm talking about a guy whose autographs you wouldn't have wasted a napkin on in November, but whose $300 throwback jersey you giddily snap up off eBay in March because he lifted your blocks category by six points. These players are special because only a select few can make a significant push in one category without burying their owners in others. Call this the All-Spackle Team. Or whatever. Just don't wait too long to pick these cats up.

POINTS
FC Kwame Brown, Lakers
How's this for Showtime: FC Chris Mihm, SF Devean George, SG Aaron McKie, SF Luke Walton and F Brian Cook? Phil Jackson even expects us to believe he's going to start some dude named Smush. When it comes to the new-look Lakers, there is SG Kobe Bryant and SF Lamar Odom, and there is everybody else. But Brown could find some middle ground as the team's third scoring option -- if he finally can find himself as an NBA player. He was a complete washout in Washington, but a new start and the chance to work under Jackson (an underrated teacher) could breathe life into his post game -- something the Lakers have in shorter supply than almost any other NBA team.

Also: PF Michael Sweetney, Bulls
Long shot: G Rashad McCants, Timberwolves

REBOUNDS
PF Chris Andersen, Hornets
Andersen's dunk contest foibles have become a running joke, which is too bad because the Birdman really can fly. The guy has unbelievable springs -- a main reason Andersen had the league's 24th-highest rebounding rate (13.8 per 48 minutes) among players who averaged at least 20 minutes a game in 2004-05. Here's why I think he can build on last season's 6.1 rebounds per game: New Orleans is going to miss a lot of shots; and the Hornets don't have much else. FC P.J. Brown is 36, C Jamaal Magloire is coming off a major injury, the team has parted ways with Byron Scott-fave F Rodney Rogers. Bonus: Andersen dunks -- seriously! -- and swats shots like crazy. He'll help in the field-goal percentage and blocks categories as well.

Also: C Nazr Mohammed, Spurs
Long shot: FC Andris Biedrins, Warriors

ASSISTS
GF Andre Iguodala, 76ers
Dimes aren't the only reason to love Iguodala -- just the best one. By the end of his rookie season, Iguodala was on the verge of becoming a Pippen-esque all-around statistical force. In a lineup with SG Allen Iverson and \Webber, he probably won't increase his scoring by more than a few ticks. But someone has to feed those gunners, right? The Sixers plan for Iverson to play off the ball more often this season, and PG Kevin Ollie is the only legitimate point guard on the roster. A preview: Iguodala had back-to-back seven-assist preseason games.

Also: PG Antonio Daniels, Wizards
Long shot: GF Boris Diaw, Suns

3-POINTERS
SF James Jones, Suns
Jones upgraded his situation in nearly every conceivable way in the offseason, jumping from a loaded, defense-first Indiana team to a Phoenix squad that runs at NASCAR speeds and suddenly needs scorers. Jones, who was a rotation player for the Pacers only because of suspensions and injuries, averaged 1.3 3-pointers as a starter and 2.4 3s per 48 minutes on the season. Considering he could log an additional 10 minutes a game for the Suns, will play with arguably the league's top setup man (PG Steve Nash) and can help in other key areas (free-throw percentage, steals, blocks), Jones is a good one to target in the middle rounds.

Also: Mike James, Raptors
Long shot: SG Matt Carroll, Bobcats

STEALS
GF Marquis Daniels, Mavericks
Daniels' teammate PG Devin Harris had the league's third-highest steals rate last season (3.15 per 48 minutes), and he arguably has a clearer path to playing time behind PG Jason Terry than does Daniels (stuck behind SG Doug Christie and GFs Josh Howard and Jerry Stackhouse). So why is Daniels the better candidate here? Despite being slowed by injuries most of last year, Daniels managed an outstanding 2.82 steals per 48. And the truth is, Daniels probably will have more opportunities than Harris. Terry is durable and is coming off a fine season, and Daniels' ability to play three positions (including point guard) gives coach Avery Johnson more options.

Also: FC Nene, Nuggets
Long shot: G Nate Robinson, Knicks

BLOCKS
F Eddie Griffin, Timberwolves
Griffin is a raw, almost painfully incomplete player, but with just a little more polish he could be a fantasy rock star. Only nine NBA players averaged more than Griffin's 3.8 blocks per 48 minutes last season, and he has the height (6-foot-10), long arms and quickness off the floor to keep it up -- especially as a weak-side defender on a team that has little inside muscle. Griffin basically is a mediocre outside shooter who gets worse until he reaches dunking territory, but he takes a bunch of 3s, is a productive rebounder and avoids turnovers. If he ever tightens up his jumper, look out.

Also: C Adonal Foyle, Warriors
Long shot: C David Harrison, Pacers

FIELD-GOAL PERCENTAGE
C Brendan Haywood, Wizards
Because guards usually shoot a relatively low percentage -- especially those who shoot a lot of 3s and are productive in several other categories -- one of the best ways to boost this category is to find a sharp-shooting backcourt guy who doesn't hurt you too much in other categories. Barring that, find the nearest 7-footer who knows his way around the offensive boards and is smart enough not to hurt his team with stupid shots. That's Haywood. Yes, his hollering and chest-thumping after simple putback dunks is silly. But it looks nice in your FG percentage column, and he also has developed a reliable baby hook. Haywood is valuable enough to the Wizards (team-best plus-11.5 plus-minus rating in '04-05, according to www.82games.com) that his minutes figure to only increase.

Also: PG Jameer Nelson, Magic
Long shot: GF DerMarr Johnson, Nuggets

FREE-THROW PERCENTAGE
FC Marc Jackson, Nets
The converse of the above theory (finding a marksman guard to boost your field-goal clip) is to dig up a big man who has a feathery touch from the line and at least a decent all-around game. Because there are plenty of guards who are accurate at the line and get there often, a center like Jackson is even more valuable than a guard like Nelson (listed above). Jackson's relatively short stature (6-10) and lead feet hurt his field-goal shooting, shot-blocking rebounding and scoring numbers, but he is a good fit in New Jersey and at least should make the most of his ability in those categories. And as a career 80.7-percent free-throw shooter, he can help as a No. 2 center or utility guy.

Also: PG Earl Boykins, Nuggets
Long shot: FC Danny Fortson, SuperSonics"

"Bucks now loaded at centerBy John Hollinger
ESPN Insider
Archive

I'm not sure the Hornets totally get the concept of rebuilding. The idea is to trade your old players, not your young ones. Yet they now have dealt both Jamaal Magloire and Baron Davis while steadfastly clinging to P.J. Brown and George Lynch. Go figure. At least Mason will help, because the Hornets were desperate at small forward -- Bostjan Nachbar and Rasual Butler would have trouble starting for Yakima, but one of the two was going to start for Charlotte/New Orleans/Baton Rouge/Oklahoma City/Las Vegas. They also have a capable replacement at center for Magloire  make some room for me on the Chris Andersen fantasy bandwagon.



From the Bucks' side, the small-market club now has nearly $80 million in contracts committed to three centers -- who do they think they are, the Knicks? This deal would seem to portend the trade of Dan Gadzuric and his shiny new $36 million deal somewhere down the road -- perhaps at the next exit. However, Gadzuric still may be able to earn minutes behind Magloire if the Bucks play Andrew Bogut at power forward, as now seems likely.



This move also signifies that Milwaukee's hoped-for smallball attack wasn't reaping dividends. Milwaukee tried playing Bobby Simmons and Mason at the forward spots in the preseason but had trouble defending with that alignment because it was so undersized. With Mason gone, Bobby Simmons can move back to his normal position at small forward and become the Bucks' perimeter stopper.



In a rarity, this deal had virtually no contract implications because Magloire's and Mason's deals were nearly identical  both are free agents in 2007. The draft pick from Milwaukee has some value (should it not be lottery-protected) and shouldn't be any later than the high teens, but on the other hand this year's draft is likely to be very weak due to the new age restrictions. Overall, one can't help but thinking the most important considerations for the frugal Hornets were a) the cash Milwaukee included in the deal and b) the lure of Oklahoma State grad Mason for selling tickets in Oklahoma City. Adding Mason might even add a few wins for the Hornets this year because he addresses a glaring weakness, but long term it's a lot easier to be excited about this deal for the Bucks than it is for the Hornets."

Just had my draft. I had the 4th pick out of 10 people. Let me know what you think of the team. I had a couple risky picks just to see how they would turn out.

G - Rip Hamilton
G - Larry Hughes
G - Desmond Mason
G - Steve Nash
F - Antawn Jamison
F - Joe Johnson
F - James Jones
F - Dirk Nowitski
C - Emeka Okafor
C - Andrew Bogut
Bench - Danny Granger
Bench - Josh Howard
Bench - Rashad McCants

With a 10 man league.....there is no need to really go for 2 risky players....Granger and McCants. I can see going for Granger...cuz we know what he's capable of....but why McCants? I would think that there would be more solid picks out there before McCants by the 130th pick.

Also...is this for a Yahoo H2H league or the NBA.COM game? I'm guessing its not the standard Yahoo H2H league. Looking at your picks....I don't see that many players that will get you any real Assists other then Nash and Joe Johnson. I would look to drop McCants for someone like Telfair or Mike James. But I guess it depends on what type of league you're in.

This is for NBA.COM league. You are right with not really having anyone to get assists. With McCants i was just gonna see how he played this week then probably drop him for somebody to help in the assists category.

So, I guess taking TJ Ford in every league I'm in made me look like a genius tonight!

Hope it can continue...but he almost has a Nash-like impact for that team from what I watched tonight. He's very active.

I had him auto-cut from my team earlier today because I was over the roster limit. I was going to release him anyway because it said he was injured. You lied to me, fantasy basketball!!

Here's my team. Thoughts?

C - Shaquille Oneal (MIA)
C - Zydrunas Ilgauskas (CLE)
GF - Paul Pierce (BOS)
F - Chris Webber (PHI)
F - Donyell Marshall (CLE)
G - Michael Redd (MIL)
G - Rafer Alston (HOU)
GF - Luol Deng (CHI)
FC - Nene Hilario (DEN)
F - Tayshaun Prince (DET)
G - Chauncey Billups (DET)
F - Al Harrington (ATL)

We use a funky H2H scoring system that emphasizes player efficiency. Details here (http://articles.sports.ws/idx/23/064/Game_Play/article/Sportsws_HeadtoHead_Scoring.html).

Ours is the only league I didn't take him because our scoring method doesn't reward assists all that much.

You know how I've configured our scoring right?

I traded Vlad Ramnovic for kylie Korver

was this a good trade.....

I already have Q-Rich and Hayes as my back up Grds and now I'm limited to just Prince and Blount @ my Fwd/ Center Position Back ups

I'm still happy

If it's not too late you should pick up Grant Hill , its a small risk but he may play as early as Saturday.
