Nets C Mason Plumlee doubles up vs. Grizzlies Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/10/15) Nets center Mason Plumlee shared the team scoring lead Tuesday, putting up 15 points on 6 of 10 shooting while hauling in 14 rebounds in his team's 95-86 loss to the Grizzlies.
Plumlee hadn't delivered a double-double since Jan. 16 before coming through Tuesday. He also scored in double digits for the second straight game after going four straight without reaching 10 points. However, the team wasn't able to catch up after falling into a 22-point deficit.
"We fought back and gave ourselves a chance," Plumlee said of cutting the lead to seven, per the Associated Press. "But we don't have the firepower to get behind 20 points and come back."
Plumlee matched a season high with three steals in the loss while kicking in one assist in 32 minutes. The Nets bring a three-game losing streak into the All-Star break.
Report: Antetokounmpo, Oladipo, Plumlee, LaVine in dunk contest
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Four players have committed to appearing in the NBA dunk contest during All-Star Weekend, according to Yahoo Sports.
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo, Magic's Victor Oladipo, Nets' Mason Plumlee and Timberwolves' Zach LaVine have all agreed to participate in the event.
Antetokounmpo and Oladipo were both drafted in 2013, and have already emerged as strong prospects. Antetokounmpo has averaged 11.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He's known as the "Greek Freak" due to his impresseive wingspan.
Oladipo has averaged 16.3 points per game during his sophomore season. LaVine is just 19-years-old, and is known for his vertical leap.
Plumlee is the only player involved with contest experience. He finished second in the McDonald's High School All-American game dunk contest.
Trade talks loom large over Nets' frontcourt
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Nets' proposed deal to move Brook Lopez to the Thunder fell apart about as quickly as it appeared to come together, but the team's desire to move the oft-injured big man probably remains intact. According to a Yahoo.com report from Friday morning, the Nets hoped to settle on a trade destination by the end of the weekend. What would be the Fantasy fallout from a Lopez trade, if and when it goes down?
Obviously, Lopez's value is going to depend on where he lands, though there isn't as much variance as you might think. He's been splitting time with Mason Plumlee for weeks, averaging just 21.7 minutes per game since returning from a back injury in late December. With teams like the Thunder, Heat and Lakers mentioned as possible destinations, he will probably end up in a similar situation no matter where he might end up, so don't expect his value to change much with a trade.
Plumlee would obviously be the big winner if Lopez is moved, and there's no reason for him to be unowned in any leagues at this point. Plumlee has been unaffected by Lopez's return to the lineup, as he is still averaging 14.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.2 blocks per game since Lopez's return. I'm not sure how much more room he has to grow, but Plumlee looks like a solid, borderline top-10 Fantasy center for the rest of the way; if you're in one of the six percent of CBSSports.com leagues where he is still available, grab him before it's too late.
|In a draft class that was largely filled with disappointments, Mason Plumlee was a rare bright spot after the Nets selected him with the 22nd overall pick. He was not expected to play much of a role for a veteran-laden Nets team, but an injury to Brook Lopez pressed Plumlee into duty much earlier than expected. He appeared in 70 games as a rookie and started 22 of them, while averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game total. He shot 64.4 percent from the field and attempted a ton of free throws, which helped him score efficiently despite limited touches. Plumlee should benefit from natural improvement in his second NBA season, but it is hard to see how he works his way into a larger role, with Lopez expected to be healthy by opening day. Plumlee is probably not worth drafting in the majority of Fantasy leagues, but he could be worth keeping an eye on after Draft Day in the event of injuries.
