    Brandon Rush over Jason Richardson?

    I'm lacking in a lot of places, but primarily, I think sg. My current guys havent been performing. Would you drop Jason Richardson for Brandon Rush? My goal is to find a sleeper, who's going to explode this year. I see potential in Rush. Any advice would be great.

    • I would go with Ben Gordon or George Hill before Rush. Rush sucked for the Pacers mainly because he never got out of Larry Birds Dog House after getting busted with pot.

    • Get gordon. You also want to consider hamilton. Brandon rush is awesome when he gets the minutes. Problem with him is the coaches. They tend to underrate him. Maybe because of his defense. But get rush and drop richardson. I think its worth it. Also, you may drop crawford and get gordon. Crawford will get his minutes and get you points, but as of the moment, he is stacking up your TOs and killing your FG%. Gordon is awesome when he gets minutes. Look for him at top 30 rank this season as he will get you 2 3s per game with high FG% and maybe a few steals and assists.

    • How are Toney Douglas/Chase Buddiger/jodie Meeks/George Hill/John Salmons/Casspi/Wes Johnson all ranked higher than Jamal Crawford and Evan Turner/Beno Udrih/JJ Redick/Jordon Crawford ALL available in a 12 team league? Certainly Douglas/Buddiger/Wes Johnson should be owned in pretty much all leagues for sure

    • I think Rush is a nice sleeper this year. The Pacers let him go because he was inconsistant therefore Rush got inconsistant minutes, But he showed flashes when he did get extended minutes. With Golden State since they invested in him he will get consistant minutes plus since he will be one of their better defenders to the Warriors any scoring Rush gives them is a bonus

    • i picked up rush ovr jrich yesterday...i am not sure why the pacers got rid of him as he loked like a stud in practice and exibition and now it looks like it is translating into real games....
