  1. He's looking solid with 4 more 3PTS vs DET and he played a whopping 41 minutes (w/ Crabbe back)!  He's become that 3PT marksman for this Nets team.  There's no need for him to create his own shot with Russell, LaVert and Dinwiddie on the court, they will find him waiting on the 3PT line.  Mind you, he has shown the ability to create his own shot while hanging out on the perimeter whether it's a screen or dribbling, side step and shoot.   I'm in a 20 Team League and with Saric (who I own) struggling, Harris is a fantastic replacement.

    I watched M Harell's game against OKC last night:

    - He relies heavily on pick and roll drop passes from SGA and Teodosic

    - He's a hustle player/high-energy guy a-la K Faried of old

    - That being said, he suits perfectly as a bench player rather than a starter

    - I don't think he complements well with D Gallinari and T Harris who always looks to shoot


    .. still can't pull the trigger to drop him for Vonleh <_<

    Great points!!! 


    I really haven't seen Harrell play live in a game except for highlights but your points are noted.

    might chime in as well.. I'm holding Harrell but really tempted to get this guy!

    I'm in the exact same boat!!! Lol Just posted in the WHIR forum. I was able to get Bjelica in both leagues and Vonleh is giving me that same feeling of "opportunity" in NYC. I'm wondering if Harrell will ever replace Gortat but he will get his minutes. Vonleh on the other hand seems to have locked up that starting PF slot and those stocks are extremely appealing. I have to decide before the night is out LOL

    Watch the games

    I have to agree.  I expected a bit more from what I've seen so far from Simmons.  As for the off season, work on your damn weaknesses! Improve your game and it will also reflect on the teams overall play as well.  Don't get me wrong, he is a beast but if he could of added a more confident mid range game along with a 3 pointer stroke, man, skies the damn limit for Simmons!

    This guy just spaces out the floor and passes like a damn point guard for his size.  Craft motha@$!#%! So far, he's hitting the 3 at a high clip (don't know if that's sustainable throughout the entire season), he can rebound and gives you the odd stocks too.  Guess all it took was an "opportunity" and Vlade signed this guy for 3 years and he's contributing to a successful Kings squad (so far).  I understand the hype that is Bagley but from a coach perspective, he sees there is great chemistry with this current starting 5, the game has changed to a transition/3 pointer type flow, Bjelica hitting the 3 is spacing out the floor tremendously and opening up for easy baskets, etc.  Finding waiver wire gems is a hit and miss but sometimes you just have to go with your gut, keep trying and you'll eventually find one.  


    Here's hoping this Bjelica train keeps on rolling.

  6. Lucky to grab him off the FA wire early this week (especially after losing Dunn) after a GM dropped him during the days Burke was starting.  So far and by the looks/feel of it, Frank is your starting PG going forward.  Let's hope the confidence continues to grow but I definitely liked what I saw from him the past 2 games and coach does too.  I was definitely one of those GMs who had Frank on the watch list but didn't have the confidence in him because there was no talk about his improvements nor did I see anything in preseason that would change my mind.  I'm hoping he continues to get a sizable amount of minutes, produces and gives his fantasy owners the "It's happening!" feeling.

    I feel you bro :( cousins, dunn, portis and harden. Had to dump punchbob, no way i could compete with 4 players out. There is no one i could pick up since its an 18 team league. Had to settle with FELICIO! :( 

    Just when i thought last season was my worst ever. I gotta move on, i just need to vent out this. Sorry if wrong thread. 

    Damn bro! I feel your pain but keep an eye out for lineup changes and see if these new starters are available on your FA/waiver wire! It's early in the year so you need to make some moves.

    Too bad I have Cousins stashed on my IR or I would hold him. Once I see official news I’ll likely drop. Bigs are extremely valuable in my fantasy league but I won’t wait a month (if it’s really 4+ weeks) for him. 

    I'm in the same boat, Cousins currently stashed in my IR slot and I have Portis. I'm going forward with replacing Portis from the FA wire in my league. Not only that, I also have Kris Dunn injured too! :(
