Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Don't waste your waiver pick on Randle, if Afflalo is on the waiver. There's no reason he wasn't drafted. Overall, that's a pretty solid team for an autodraft.
I agree with Wizzle on JR Smith, terrible person and obnoxious player. Trade him or dump him for a solid PG. News is reporting he's too dumb to figure out how to play in the Knicks new triangle offense. How do the Knicks find these losers and then pay them mad cash?

No, that's a sucker's move to take Kobe ahead of those players. Kobe is not likely to play a full season and is almost guaranteed to push too hard and break himself to try and carry that steaming pile of a team he's on. All those players are young with solid seasons under their belts and still have some upside. I'm staying far away from Kobe this year, much like I did last year and it's still a wise move.

Sell Markieff while the stock is high on him.
I think CWizzle summed this up well, but I gotta chime in to agree that he feels like one of those stretch forwards that draft analysts love to hype coming into the season. Last year it was Jeff Green, Ilyasova, Tobias Harris, and Kawhi, this year it's Markieff. I think he'll have a fine season, but I wouldn't be surprised if he makes a step instead of a leap this year.

I like KCP, Ginobili is a risk for a night of rest on any given night at his age. Ginobili's not worth the headache. KCP should be getting the starting spot and if he can hold it down, he should be a good source of threes.
Where are people seeing George get drafted in keeper leagues where he's available?
I currently have him in a keep-3 league, but I'm not gonna use a keeper slot on him. I'm curious to know where I should expect to grab him if I want to re-draft him and stash him for next year. Thanks in advance for your replies.

That's helpful, thanks. It's a 16 team league, used to be deeper, but a few folks quit. I was thinking somewhere around 100, but if you're grabbing him at 74, well that means someone is willing to take him there. Good to know.
Any believers out there? I'm intrigued by a 6' 8" SG/SF that's probably getting the starting nod in his first year. I've never seen him play though, anyone know if he's possibly a legit player in the NBA?

Mirza is playing PF, not even gonna be playing the same spots as Bojan.
Anyone ever seen Bojan play? Highlight reels look good, but everybody looks good in their highlight reels.

These are two players I am not touching with a 10 foot pole this season. If I had to pick one, I'd take D Rose, if for nothing else than for the fact that he is not an absolute POS as a person like Kobe is. Good luck and don't give up Bledsoe for Rose, that would be a mistake. If you can, trade Kobe for someone that isn't as fragile as Rose, but trade him quick while his stock is high.

As of today, I'm going with Copeland. I'm not a believer in CJ Miles, he's just good for some threes, but he tends to play his way onto the bench every year. Copeland is a good offensive player, but his shabby defense has kept him glued to the bench for the last couple seasons. I don't see Indiana having that luxury this year, they need someone to shoot the ball and Copeland is their best bet right now at the SF spot. I'd put my chips on Copeland and roll the dice, either way you're like not gonna be risking a high pick for either of these guys.

McDaniels has less competition for minutes in Philly, so he may be the better option here. I'd have low expectations for both of these players. On another point, McDaniels has really put himself in a position where he absolutely must prove something this year by opting for a 1-year deal. You're really not risking much with this move.
