    FD has moved Luka to PG – and he’s $9.9k!

    I know he is their de facto PG now, so it actually makes sense, but I liked him at SG

    @GG

    You locking in Thybulle at 3500?

    Just wanting to know if I’ll have him at 0.1% or 0.2% ownership.

    Now watch him be 35% cause 🤷‍♂️.

    i might be biased but i like Thybulle at $3.5k. he’ll get a lot of play time, is a disruptor on defense and can hit the 3

    But isn’t Dedmon a pretty decent defender?

    With the pace the Hawks play at I’m not sure Dedmon’s defense would matter anyway. Every game they have will be a race to 125 and it’s hard to be a good paint defender when the other team is getting lay-ups after 6 seconds repeatedly.

    He’s with the Kings now.

    I am biased … and you’re right. Brown has made it very clear that he is in the rotation and the guy is a terror on D.

    He’s a better version of young Covington without the price tag.

    Dedmon is on the Kings now.

    During preseason Ryan Saunders said he wants the Wolves to play faster this year and wants them to shoot more 3’s. RoCo was grabbing all the boards in preseason, I wonder if this is why and if it will be the norm going forward. Assuming they want KAT to run the floor rather than grabbing open defensive boards (similar to Westbrook in OKC I guess?) leaving those for RoCo since he’ll be at the 4 with Layman at the 3. If so, RoCo is under priced and should have some easy double doubles this year along with his normal peripherals.

    Why are we presuming he’ll get a lot of play time, isn’t he a 3rd stringer?

    Better version of young Andre Roberson.

    No, absolutely not. He has been a revelation in camp and Brett Brown gushes about his defense like he is his own child. He beat out Zhaire for the second unit and it was a blowout.

    Royce O’Neale is really cheap at 3.3k. I’m not sure what looks Utah will have but he usually went for 25 FPs in the playoffs when given like 25 mins+.

    Ah, he’s their backup 2 guard so ~20 minutes I would presume.

    Vucevic put up some monsters late vs the Cavs last year but TT was out.

    Hard to resist at that price, will have some for sure. I always try to find one low-owned gem, 0.2% sounds great!

    Per Liberty Ballers about Thybulle …

    “ Thybulle’s defense consistently stood out in preseason. In five games, playing 19.1 minutes a night, he averaged 7.2 points (shooting 48 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from three with a total of four made triples), 2.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and an eye-popping 2.6 steals and 1.4 blocks. Per 36 minutes, that equates to 4.9 steals and 2.6 blocks. ”

    Aldrige and Derozan both seem a little underpriced.

    Agreed. I was thinking 16-22.

    You guys also just signed Ivan Rabb, doubt he’s able to play today though.

    At almost the same price there’s Dillon Brooks who’s projected to start or Joseph who should be the PG off the bench for SAC.

    Yea he was the NCAA National Defensive Player of the Year. If he can develop a 3 point shot (big if since he’s older and was never great in college and took all of his shots wide open), it’s the difference between him being like a better defensive version of Otto Porter or just an Andre Roberson. Andre Roberson isn’t bad, but you’ll have to put up with him being left unguarded. Luckily, he has much more potential than Roberson and he should already be a better shooter.

    With that said, I have no idea what his price is, but if he’s like around 3.5k, I would just choose Royce O’Neale over him any day of the week because Royce will get 20 mins+ if he starts, possibly 30 if it’s playoff Royce.
