  1. I prefer them both over Dort if it's threes I'm looking for. None of them are high upside options, but Dort shoots under 30% from three (bad FT shooter too), but has had a few games where he was hot. He plays amazing defense, but doesn't get many steals or blocks (he actually had 1 bpg in the post season). I think you could compare it to Marcus Smart's situation, who's had way more steals, is a much better passer and much better shooter. And Smart finished in the top 80 once and top 100 twice (#84 and #62). I think Dort has nice real life value, but won't do much fantasy-wise. In college Dort shot only 70% from the line, 30% from three (on 5 attempts per game, so he did get some pratice) and racked up 1.5 steals per game (only had 7 blocks total, so you could even consider the 6 blocks he got last playoffs an abbreviation).

    I was never a huge fan of Hardway, but he played well last season. Seth Curry is now in Philly, Barea is gone as well, which has me thinking he'll get a few more looks (even though I think the Mavs will play Terry, possibly Bey and especially Green quite a bit). Joe Harris should get open looks in Bkn with Kyrie and KD back. I like Harris' FG% and he should get his FT% back to ~80% I think.

    Kanter is terrible at D tho so Harry could get the backup minutes. Remember Kanter had little to no competition in Boston and barely played

    Depends on situation. Kanter played really well with Dame and CJ (good in pick and pop/roll with them), and they had some success two years ago. He probably is looking at ~ 17 mpg, also in order to keep Nurk fresh for the playoffs. Blazers are incredibly deep though this season.

  3. Love love love love this signing for the Blazers, and I expected there to be a much better market for Giles.

    Olshey finally stopped trying to plug holes with one dimensional players and instead brought in good players. His passing and defense should be very valuable to them.

    I love ehat this means for the Blazers bench, but I dont think there will be enough minutes available to become relevant in all but the deepest leagues.


    Covington / Melo / Giles / Collins at PF, maybe even Hood and DJJ some spot minutes.

    Nurk / Kanter / Giles / Collins at C

    Horton-Tucker following up his first game of 19-9-4-3 with 31-7-3-3 and the 3rd quarter ain't even finished yet! 

    Shame minutes won't be there for him in the regular season. 

    He'll have a decent bench role. Lakers will want to rest their players for the post season, rotations are going to be somewhat deeper this season, the Lakers bench isnt that deep and THT is ready for an expanded role as he provides strengths that fit the Lakers needs.

    Patrick Williams looks good my man @perkinsfor3.

    I have Aaron Nesmith in my roster too, will Williams perform better than him? BOS still have no preseason games yet and I love Nesmith's game, need his 3s. 

    Williams on the other hand only has an oft injured in front of him, thoughts?

    I dont think Nesmith will do much beyond shoot threes. Boston needs that outside shooting but I like PatWilliams' ability to provide across the board better.

    He may play over KPJ but he’s not starting over Osman at least not yet.  Osman is in his fourth year so if this is the year he makes that leap okoro will be playing the backup 2/3.  He may play over sexton if coach decides to pull the plug on playing two small pgs at the same time.  Okoro can be fringe 100 player as a 3 and stl specialist.


    I project their lineup being garland, sexton(or okoro), Osman, love, Drummond 

    Woildnt be surprised but maaaaan thats a horrible line up on defense.

    This guy could be VERY interesting. Is presumptively starting on a bad pistons team and could see near 30 mins a game. When he played over 24 mins a game with nuggets last season he averaged 11.2 points on 63.4 percent shooting, 7.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks. We could be looking at a poor mans Bam Adebayo if he can carve out minutes into the 30s. The only downfall would be his negative impact as a free throw shooter with a career percentage of 56.2%.


    VERY INTERESTING, i would pick him up before the season starts as he could be fantasy gold.

    The thing is, with that Nuggets squad, and with the Blazers previously, he was playing with shooters. In Detroit he has Griffin and Rose playing a different game where it's a lot of driving and ISOing. This doesnt work in his favor. I also expect the Pistons to realize their offseason signing, Grant, shouldnt be played at SF (and shouldnt be featured as much as he likes himself), and thus move Grant to PF and Blake to C.

  8. I dont think the long term upside of Rui, Kuzma and Bagley is worth a lot. If I could deal those for a better long term prospect, I wouldnt blink twice as they all struck me like the Jabari Parker level of players.


    Some injury risk and some efficiency challenges as well, but having Tatum, Luka, KAT and Ayton as keepers is great!

    thanks for your work, any recommendation for pick 400+?

    That's a bit of a difficult question since every league is different. Dynasty? Redraft?


    You're in the Dozier, Musa, Stauskas (lmao), Vanderbilt, Nowell, Vernon Carey, Pritchard, Quickley, Nnaji, Woodard, 

    I actually think Nnaji could enter Denver's rotation earlier than expected. Matt Thomas is ranked 385th but could someone to look at?

    I live in Europe and have not seen recently Spurs games, but I am surprised that here much people advertised White/Murray combo as the best for Spurs, but now quite experienced specialist as Perkinsfor3 is, said otherwise. How you can see games so different way?

    Not a specialist, but I think a lot of people who watch Spurs games... like Spurs fans, are looking/waiting for more improvements from Murray as well. I was a big fan of his upside when he got drafted, but had been hoping for more improvement, even with the ACL injury. 

    I think Murray will continue to start as the Spurs/Pop is sort of conservative with his rotations, even when there 2as some talk about them playing more uptempo this season (heck, his starting five for this first preseason game would've been considered slow in 2000). But I don't think Murray will finish most games. He isn't good enough a ballhandler and distributor to do so, especially since his scoring doesn't alleviate that pain. I would love to see him develop more so he can stay on the court beyond stricktly defensive purposes in late game situations.
