    I am a little leery on FD with no late swap about playing AD. Seems like a good spot for him to take the night off. Especially with such a low total and a climbing spread, up to minus 11 now!

    Terry Stotts says Carmelo Anthony arrived in New Orleans last night.

    Stotts will meet with him today with an expectation that he could play tonight.

    This sounds like he will play.

    Until I hear otherwise, I am assuming he is debuting tonight.

    The other night when AD dudded he was 56 percent on DK I believe but over 80 percent by the 150 max players

    A ton of Burks DK talk at 5K DK when Brooks is sitting there at 4.5K.

    Yikes, they didn’t even make Melo the stone minimum on FD. $4000 for Melo!? Idk if you’re kidding Tmar but that seems like an awfully thin play to me. I think you max enter, so makes a little more sense but Yiiiiikes

    I think we all already agreed we liked Brooks and moved on.

    Yeah I like both Whiteside and Hayes in that game

    In the same lineup? I often play opposing PGs but not so often inside—I guess my thinking’s been that if one center really goes off it might put his opponent in foul trouble. Maybe that doesn’t matter tonight since there’s no real backup for Hayes and he plays his full minutes or six fouls whichever comes first.

    I have quite a bit of interest in Jonas V tonight. He could smash in 20-25. 40-50 pts on a small slate might be enough. Bjelica is also sneaky with high upside and prob low ownership.

    You also have the championship ring snub narrative for JVal. Probably need to save that for when he plays TOR but you never know.

    Last game he had about 10/30 minutes with the second unit while the remaining 20 he was with the starters/Dray

    Last game’s baseline/with starters/with second unit:

    • Usage: 21.4 / 22.9 / 32.9
    • Rebounds per 36: 4.8 / 2.5 / 8.7
    • Assists per 36: 6.1 / 7.5 / 4.3
    • FGA per 36: 15.7 / 15 / 21.7

    Obviously need to look at more games, but it looks like he basically becomes the primary scorer when with the secondary unit while his minutes with the starters are spent basically funneling assists.

    I actually think before Carmelo eventually melts down he will be the third or fourth highest scorer on that team. I really can’t build a lineup right now until I have New Orleans news. The small forward pool is a mess until that is cleared up. Ingram playing makes Kenrich and Etwaun unplayable. Ingram not playing makes both of them good options.

    Burks could certainly have a good outing, but I’d suggest Boman and Brooks provide similar upside at a discount and pending NOP news, Nickell Alexander-Walker has perhaps more upside at $100 discount. The issue is the opportunity cost of loading up all these cheap guards vs rostering at least 1 of the mid to upper tier guys who are in great spots.

    What was weird to me about that last Golden State game was how much they treated Paschall like the #1 option. I don’t know if that was because he was rolling or what but it gives me pause when I think about playing Draymond.

    Sources: After passing his physical exam, Carmelo Anthony signed his one-year, non-guaranteed deal with Portland today. It will be worth $2.15M should he remain on roster past guarantee date in January. Carmelo Anthony will wear No. 00 in Portland.

    Draymond came out and said Paschall scoring with raw talent and just needs to learn the NBA game and he’ll get better. Feel like Dray will defer and give the young guys as much opportunity as they can handle to develop. Dray knows this season is over so all about the young guys getting reps and developing. At least that’s what i think.

    He is offensively. Draymond is never a number 1 option on offense ever, not even on a college team.

    I lied have a couple dummys for that news, but most likely will be underweight on that value if it opens up.

  • jsmllwdj

    AD still getting 30+ without getting any rebounds. Just think if he pulls in at least 6 boards and his avg PPG. AD is right back to to 50+. AD also had 5 blocks last game that no one is talking about so even if his shoulder is sore it is not killing him.

  • Smallchimp

    The most interesting Burks tidbit is that he’s projected to be 67% owned out of T6 in Tiers, with the next highest ownership just over 20% with WCS. Apparently Adams, Redick, Kaminsky, McGee, and NAW are chopped liver

    Yeah not sure I will move to much of the NO value either DK did a good job pricing everyone today. Definitely will have Hayes but won’t go out of my way to get any of the guards

    I am actually seriously looking at Melo on FD. They didn’t bring him in to rot at the end of the bench. If he debuts tonight I would think he would at least 16-18 minutes. He can chuck up a lot of threes in that short period of time.

    I’ll have some
