Might as well stream a 3pt specialist and call it a day.

I know his assists are the difference maker. And today they weren’t there

Might start drying up more, with LaMello ascending. 

Maybe I’m wrong but it’s bad times until he captains the 2nd unit.

Yeah but seems like coach is high on having Ball come off the bench and run with Bridges. Ball is definitely the better player and minutes are trending up for him. Like you said, maybe playing with the second unit might help him. Only time will tell.

So some misinformation being spread in here about him 'not being able to shoot' that has got to be cleared up. He shot 37.3% from deep last year, league average was 35.8%, shot 82% from the line, leag

Man do you clowns even watch games? I literally link the article so you guys can just read it since clearly watching the games are too hard. He has the highest assist to turnover ratio of qualified pl

He’s only averaging 3 less shots per game than last year wherein he hit 3.5 3PM at a 37% clip so I wouldn’t say that its a usage issue. This would be my second season rostering him and as i’ve wa

Even though some probably won't care but I play 9 cat and I'm gonna mention he is averaging a good only 0.7 TO's a game which is underrated assist/TO ratio, so really it's only his efficiency once he fixes that which is fixable I think he gonna be alright if anything just bench him in busy nights but know he can get you 5-8 3's at any given night.

I rostered him last year, and I could see that despite last year's breakout, he was a limited player. He needs the ball in his hands. He does well when he can dribble down the court, and launch his shot in transition. Or he can drive and dish. He is NOT a stand-up shooter, or a half-court playmaker.

It's why I didn't draft him this year. Because taking him off the ball would mean he would go completely kaput.

But there's a next act. Very soon, Ball will start. When that happens, there's a 50/50 likelihood that Graham goes back to the bench. And that will be a very good thing for him. He can go nuts as a microwave scorer from the bench, with the ball in his hands. In 3-guard situations, he can maybe hit corner 3s with success. 

So, to summarize, the ceiling is lower than last year, but maybe a 16 point scorer with 40% FG% and 3 3pms is still possible.

I loved watching him play last season. Good and bad shooting nights. But this season, he's just been annoying. I really wish he stopped with that bullshit ball fake he puts up coming off a screen. Nobody bites on it and it looks like it completely throws off any rhythm.

 

Which one of you is this? Lol.

We missed his 1/10 shooting ☺ 

 

I like to pretend I'm in a reverse stats league. You have to fill all your roster spots, but the goal is to have the worst stats. It's like golf.

he is a good player, I agree, but since dropping him my team has been much better. he is good for steals and 3's but destroys FG%. If you can punt that stat then you want him. the other problem, of course, is Lamelo. even if they go to a 3 guard lineup he's going to eat into Graham's minutes, and if Graham gets traded he will likely not be a starter. I actually think it's not unlikely a contender who needs some bench punch makes a deal for Graham. 

 

I'm not saying you all should drop him like I did. I also dropped Dillon Brooks and Clarkson- these 3 last night combined for 67 points and 9 threes, so I don't always make the best decisions.

Had Devonte last year and dropped serious FAB $ on him. Drafted him this season. But given context, I’ve dealt him for Lauri, a buy low target.

Devonte might be the loser out of the crowded rotation. He’ll get his touches and opportunities, but with his FG% so low, he really needs to make the most out of them to produce for fantasy.

Here's a good article for you boxsore people that haven't seen the Hornets play this year. Buy low for punt fg and points league teams is closing any minute now.

 

Thanks for the article! Pretty clear the coaching staff knows what they're doing by trusting him and letting him play through his slump

This guy is one of the worst basketball players that has been given a largescale role that I've seen in a long time and potentially ever. I cant for the life of me fathom how a guy shooting 26% from the floor (career 36%) is permitted the opportunity be on a roster yet alone play 32 mins per game. It just defies logic. This dude belongs on waiver wires far far from any competitive Gms roster.

LOL seriously, he's awful. He's fine in fantasy if you have a hard punt fg% squad God he's a terrible real life player. The definition of a mindless chucker. He makes Antoine Walker look like the bastion of bbiq and good shooting
