Next year maybe, but not yet. He's useful already though.

Singler looked nice.

Shannon Brown is posting 14 pts/ 1.8 3pt per gaem off the bench in Phoenix.

Meanwhile, Bogut will be shut down for at least the upcoming 3 games, could be 6. Festus Ezeli will start in his place. He's got a NBA ready physique and could get you some blks and reb. Keep an eye on him.

I know he has been discussed a lot, and seems people are high on him in terms of a waiver wire pickup, but I am also looking at Jack. He is the situation:

I drafted Dorrell Wright (please don't ask why as I don't even know myself), dropped him for Nate Robinson, after George Hill and JR Smith were swooped before I could pick them up. I grabbed Hinrich as I was hoping to get the CHI guard that would be getting the most minutes. It looks like Thibs is splitting the time evenly, and I dont want to get myself caught in a DeAngelo Williams / Jon Stewart type situation where the minutes are getting to divided, and no consistency.

I am looking to pick up Jack to replace Hinrich. What do you guys think? Should I look to keep Hinrich around, or maybe even look at a player like Danny Green who is available.

My lineup:

Irving
Klay Thompson
Josh Smith
Monroe
Horford
Garnett
Hayward
DeRozan
OJ Mayo
David West
Asik
John Wall**

You could try to get a good pg for Derozan. Why not try Teague, you never know who overrated Derozan and bites now he had a good all round game. You coudl then proceed to pick up Green or Jack.

Larry Sanders, kevin Seraphin or Nikola Vucevic? I have Vucevic this week b/c of schedule but who will be the best going forward?

Blocks would be most ideal and that should give teh edge to Sanders but those other guys seem to be playing more minutes.

Thanks Loot. I do like the idea of dealing DeRozan for a PG. Selling high right now would be nice, my only issue with Teague is that I already have Josh Smith and Horford, so not sure if I want 3 players from ATL, but will definitely look into the option of finding a PG that can give me some extra assists / steals / solid FT%.

I will still drop Hinrich for Jack.

@LifeBaller11 I really like Seraphin, but if you are looking to get a boost for blocks I would go with Sanders. Seraphin will get good minutes though since Nene is constantly going down, so really both are not a bad choice. I personally like Seraphin the most out of the 3 but Sanders does seem to be performing the best right now.

Seraphin. Most steady, blks as well. I've got a feeling Seraphin will be a top 25 player somewhere in the next 1 or 2 seasons.

I was considering dropping DeAndre Jordan for him but not anymore haha. He should be owned though in most leagues, he's by far the best big on the Wiz with Nene out

Eric Bledsoe is worth a looks while Billups is out in deeper leagues, he seems like he would really blow up if he ever became a starter.

Changes coming to the Toronto line up. Amir Johnson could start, although he's been hardly impressive in games where he started last year. However, Alan Anderson looks interesting, he already provide late round value as a bench player, but the combination of a Landry hand injury with this news is a good indication that he'll be a starter. Good for pts, 3pt and ft, watch his fg though.

^I would drop Jack probably but I'm not too big a fan of Patterson and it sounds like Nelson may be back soon

Thinking of dropping Reddick even though he's been awesome so far Orlando just doesn't look like they can stay in games consistently, looking for 3s, and assists and steals somewhat as well. Pick up any of these guys?

Corey Brewer is averaging over 2.5 3pts/game and even got the green light to shoot more. He can also contribute in other categroies: steals and dont forget he had a 20 rebound game as a rookie. Watch out for his fg.

Lance Stephenson is starting at SG in Indiana. Something has got to change there and dude can rack up 3pts, stl and ast. Very young as well.

You tell us? Do the 7 ast and 2 3pts make up for the 2.4 to and 33% fg on 12 attempts per game? Your call.

On the other side of the map, Blake/Duhon/Meeks might get a bump in value with scoring wizard D'Antoni at the helm in LA.

I was referring specifically to the last 3 games where he's averaging double digit scoring and assists on 41% shooting with some threes

Alex Shved a good pickup with Barea, Roy, Budinger injured? Or should I just hold on to Barea?

I'd keep Barea. Shved is a nice long term prospect, although you'd have to remember, he's 'already' 24.
