I actually like how he was play in the G league and added him just before last game to hedge my Zach Randolph. He looks like a Chris Bosh type of player.

 

Problem with him was that they didn't think he was quick enough to guard the 4 but maybe he is a bit better now. Willy is good but after him is Kosta Kuofos.

Some ridiculous things that were said by Jorger who used Randolph to guard 4s. Randolph is slow even to guard a blue whale out of water. He was just trying to find an excuse for what seems inexcusable. I hope this guy gets fired soon, not that their management can pick any good one, but anyway. Skal has great talent, but only if he gets playing time he ll learn how to cover 4s, 5s or whatever.

Yeah it's some BS. I think they played Skal last game against the Suns because they wanted to lose but then realized Skal plays too well now. I wouldn't rule out them committing to playing Skal more after another strong game or two. They don't need to tank that hard to get a lottery pick lol.

De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Malachi Richardson, Skal Libissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

It's the Kings so there's always a chance they change this, but it makes sense. Hield should have a huge chance in front of him tonight with George Hill out. Basically, if Hield struggles again today, he'll be a drop candidate because this situation is a mess.

 

 
 

 

 

Since the Rotoworld writers can't figure it out, the biggest news here is Skal is starting over Z-BO.

4 fouls. I see him having a bigger role and overtaking Randolph starting spot soon (nearing ASB). He is getting solid minutes these past games. 

I agree.  That's a long shift for someone not in foul trouble.  It was 14.5 minutes straight.

I'm hoping Randolph will get bought out next month.

I'm in...tomorrow.  Might as well get another game out of whoever I have in for tomorrow before picking him up in a streamer spot tomorrow morning to take effect Wednesday.  If we trust Joeger on this one (lol, I know, but it's not like he said they were doing a youth movement earlier in the year), then this could really turn out big.

I would def have some patience with this kid, especially in dynasty leagues. Been stashing him since the first week. He had some eye popping numbers in the G League this season (for what it's worth): 28PPG (with totals of 10 BLK, 30 REB,  and 2 3PTM in two games & 71% FG!!). Plus he put up some real nice lines at the end of last season. Could become a daily double double with 1/1/1 (AST,STL,BLK). Blocks will probably be around 1.5 per game with regular minutes with upside for more. Love him in dynasty. Still only 21 and improving his game. Could be a fantasy monster in a year or 2 if his outside shot gets consistent and if he can average at least 0.5 3PTM. His shot has been better than expected at the NBA level. Only 23 threes attempted, but 10/23 on 3's in his NBA career so far (43.5%). That's def something to be excitedabout. Hopefully Z bo and Koufos get unloaded at the deadline. Might be one of the best PF/C 2nd half stashes available along with Portis
