The Wire Troll: Isaiah Canaan Gets Keys to Sixers Offense

The NBA trade deadline has passed, with 17 teams making deals involving 37 players, or 8.4 per cent of the league. Chances are that one of your players got traded and they either gave you hope or destroyed your championship dreams.

Now, here are these week’s waiver wire recommendations.

GUARDS

Isaiah Canaan, PG, Philadelphia 76ers (ESPN: 12.7 per cent; CBS: 39 per cent): Part of the huge trade right before the deadline, Canaan was sent to Philadelphia from Houston. Michael Carter-Williams was sent to Milwaukee, which seems to leave Canaan as not only the 76ers starter, but the only player classified as a PG left in the City of Brotherly Love. With his minutes rising he is an interesting pick up, especially since he has averaged 12 points in starts this season. The best part of Canaan leaving the Rockets? He won’t have to put up with Dwight Howard grabbing his junk anymore (see video below).

Spencer Dinwiddie, PG, Detroit Pistons (ESPN: 0.2 per cent; CBS: 3 per cent): A very low risk pickup with medium upside, Dinwiddie got the starting nod while D.J. Augustin was on his way to Oklahoma City and Reggie Jackson was heading to Detroit. Dinwiddie stepped up and torched former MVP Derrick Rose for 12 points, nine assists and three steals. With Jackson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Tayshaun Prince likely to be starting, Dinwiddie is just someone to keep an eye on for now in standard formats, but a nice speculative pick in larger leagues.

FORWARDS

Matt Barnes, SF, Los Angeles Clippers (ESPN: 11.1 per cent; CBS: 42 per cent): Barnes is a starter on a good team who is averaging 30 minutes. He’s a safe bet to not hurt you and definitely isn’t going to kill you. Barnes will hit a three or two per game making him if not a flashy pick up, a solid one.

Miles Plumlee, PF, Milwaukee Bucks (ESPN: 3.2 per cent; CBS: 20 per cent): Another shot in the dark based on his new situation, Plumlee — traded as part of the three-team deal involving MCW — could be helpful in Milwaukee. However, it might take some time for him to earn minutes so it’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out.

CENTRES

JaVale McGee, Philadelphia 76ers (ESPN: 1.1 per cent; CBS: 10 per cent): The 76ers took on McGee’s contract and some picks in a deadline deal, then announced they would buy him out. After that, he started for the 76ers on Friday, but only played 11 minutes. McGee’s shot blocking skills are undeniable, but there is a reason he didn’t play in Denver. If he does stick around in Philly and gets big minutes then he could be worth a pick up, so keep your eyes on him for the time being.

Alex Len, Phoenix Suns (ESPN: 5.8 per cent; CBS: 42 per cent): We recommended Len right after Christmas, and he vindicated us with a solid January. Unfortunately, an ankle injury knocked him out in early February. But Len returned Friday and sure looked healthy, throwing up a double-double and swatting a half dozen shots. Now that Plumlee has been dealt, the door is open for Len to take his game to a new level in the second half, so this is likely your last chance to scoop him up. Expect him to flirt with double-doubles regularly while pitching in with plenty of blocks.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below who your favourite Fantasy basketball waiver wire pick of the week is.

The Wire Troll: The Emergence of Tony Snell

February 14, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Barea has been able to score in double figures in six of his last seven games including a big 22-point performance on Wednesday in which he led Dallas to victory over the Jazz. He’s likely not worth a pick up on a long-term basis, however he’s a great handcuff to Rondo.

The Wire Troll: Kevin Garnett’s Last Run?

February 7, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
udley has been playing well lately in large part to his minutes going up. He has cracked the 30-minute mark in three of his last four games, which has helped his scoring. You would like to see a little more, but if things keep trending this direction Dudley might be worth a pickup.

2014 RotoRob Basketball Awards

February 6, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
You saw that he could be a top player in this league… an MVP candidate. It was just a few years away, right? However, Davis continued to improve at an unbelievable rate, getting off to an amazing start in 2014-15, ranking fourth in the league in scoring, ninth in rebounding, and No. 1 in blocks. More telling, he is the league leader in Player Efficiency Rating (PER). If The Brow can keep it up, it will be only the 18th time (minimum 41 games) that a player had a PER of 30.2 and he’ll be only the eighth player to do so. This guy is singlehandedly keeping you in your Fantasy league.
