All the LSU/ARK and Duke/UNC
The $5000 Forward dilemma:
Holton or Traylor if looking for the higher GPP upside?
It appears that Traylor has the higher upside, but Holton has the higher floor?
I think you’re spot on. Traylor has higher upside, Holton the better floor.
I’m inclined to fade the KU frontcourt situation altogether. The opportunity is definitely there for increased minutes, but Spangler and Thomas for OU are no slouches and that atmosphere is going to be bonkers.
Expect the rotation of Lucas/Traylor/Mickelson to be based largely on foul situation and effectiveness. If you think Traylor will be most effective, use him. I guess I just feel the KU bigs are appropriately priced based on who is most likely to contribute.
Also worth noting that Traylor played 23 minutes when these teams played in January and logged just four points + zero rebounds.
