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: Marvin Williams Finding Some Rhythm

January 11, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
The Pistons are playing well, and so is Augustin, with a 26-point game, a 19-point game and a double-double all within his last six games. It’s looking like he could start to be a plug and play matchup option.

2014-15 Small Forward Rankings

Yet he’s still atop our list here. Why? Well, last season was KD’s finest as he continued to play big minutes, sunk more buckets than ever and enjoyed career bests in assists and points per game. Durantula may have some rust when he returns, but he’ll be dominating in no time.

2014-15 Top 10 Fantasy Basketball Rookies

December 1, 2014 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
As we all know, Wiggins and his potential went first, and Parker went second to the Bucks. On paper, this looks like a perfect fit as Parker slides in as a starter and focal point of the offense from the get go. His offensive game is extremely polished, and he’s capable from scoring from anywhere on the floor. Parker is also an adept passer and capable rebounder, though he’s unlikely to play in the post all the time given Milwaukee’s collection of bigs that need minutes. Don’t go overboard with your expectations — he’s still a rookie after all — but 15 points and 7-to-8 boards a game seems doable.
