2013 Fantasy Basketball Draft Prep: 12-team Roto mock

Fantasy Writer
  •  

The season starts in -- *checks calendar * -- six days? Six days! There is still plenty of time to get your Fantasy drafts in under the wire; I've got three more myself before opening night.

Earlier in the preseason, we did our mock draft for a head-to-head, standard scoring league, and we now present the results of our Rotisserie league draft.

This draft went mostly as planned, but there were a few surprises; Brandon Jennings in the first round was an unexpected one, though I actually think he is very underrated for Fantasy purposes. Sure, the shooting percentage hurts, but he hasn't dealt with many injury concerns, and will rack up steals, assists, 3-pointers and points at a high level.

At the top, LeBron James went ahead of Kevin Durant, and I can go either way on that. I would personally lean towards Durant, simply because he is less likely to take time off later in the year, and is an absolute killer in the percentage categories, while improving his all-around game. You can't go wrong with either, and Stephen Curry's insane combination of high-volume three-point shooting, assists and points isn't a bad runner-up prize at No. 3.

Anthony Davis is flying up draft boards, and he is a borderline first-round value in category-based formats. If his preseason performance is any indication, he could be on the verge of becoming a top five overall Fantasy option.

Use this as a guide to give you relative draft values as you prepare your last-minute leagues.

Report: 76ers snag PG Marquise Teague from Nets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:50 pm ET) The rumored deal of Nets point guard Marquis Teague to the 76ers has come to fruition, per ESPN, which is reporting that Philadelphia is receiving him and a second round pick for point guard Casper Ware. The Nets have already announced that Ware will we waived.

Ware played briefly for the Sixers at the end of last season, averaging 5.3 points in nine games.


Report: Rockets C Dwight Howard out Friday with laceration
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:37 pm ET) A laceration on his forearm that required stitches will keep Rockets center Dwight Howard sidelined in the team's preseason finale Friday against San Antonio, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Howard has also been dealing with knee issues in training camp. The team opens its regular season Tuesday night on the road against the Lakers, his former team.


Jarell Eddie lands with Celtics
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:33 pm ET) The Celtics have signed free agent rookie swingman Jarell Eddie, who had been waived by Atlanta on Tuesday.

Eddie played at Virginia Tech.


Report: PF Jason Maxiell earns roster spot with Hornets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:30 pm ET) Steve Clifford has confirmed that power forward Jason Maxiell has secured a roster spot for the Hornets, the Charlotte Observer is reporting.

The 31-year-old Maxiell suffered through a poor 2013-14 season with Orlando, which waived him in July. But he had been a stalwart for Detroit in previous seasons.


Report: Varejao beats out Thompson as Cavs starting center
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) What was speculated has become official -- Anderson Varejao is the starting center for the Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson will come off the bench, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Both players performed well in exhibition play, but Varejao provides more of an interior defensive presence and has improved his offensive game markedly. Thompson has also become a greater offensive threat, but is considered more of a power forward on defense.


Report: PF Jason Smith earns starting job for Knicks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:41 pm ET) Jason Smith will serve as the starting power forward for the Knicks to open the season, according to the New York Post. He has emerged with the job ahead of Quincy Acy and Amar'e Stoudemire, who will be used as a super sub.

The former Pelican who is coming off knee surgery has performed well in the preseason. He is set to start the Friday exhibition finale against Toronto, then will likely maintain the spot when the team opens the regular season with back-to-back games against Eastern Conference studs Chicago and Cleveland.

The Knicks signed Smith for the mid-level exception of $3.2 million in the offseason.


Rajon Rondo ramping up contact work in Celtics practice
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:48 am ET) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo could be cleared by the team's medical staff early next week, and coach Brad Stevens expressed optimism when discussing his point guard's potential availability Friday for the start of the season.

"Now it's just a matter of getting clearance, really," said Stevens. "Because everything else, from a skill standpoint, from an understanding standpoint -- he's been running our offense in 5-on-0, up and down the court, for 10 days now. And he picks it up pretty quickly anyways. And we spent some time watching film, whether it's of the team when he's not on the floor, or just simple stuff that he's been able to do in practice to just try to expedite being ready." 

Rondo is dealing with a fractured left metacarpal, and has already begun taking part in some contact activities, though not clear contact. He is wearing extra padding on the hand during practice, and there at least remains a chance Rondo will be in the lineup for the start of the regular season if he receives clearance.

"It's not my call, that's the way I look at it," Stevens said. "When [team trainer] Ed [Lacerte] tells me that someone is ready to play, that's the go-ahead to let them play."


No guarantee Jason Richardson plays for 76ers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:27 am ET) The 76ers are probably going to keep veteran guard Jason Richardson and his $6.6 million contract for the upcoming season, but there is no guarantee he will see the floor.

"I think it's going to be a challenge," coach Brett Brown told the Philadelphia Inquirer Friday. "But I really don't know. I just feel like he's been out of it for a while, and it's going to be a really difficult task."

Richardson has not played since January 2013 due to a knee injury, but the team wants to keep him around to help with a young locker room, Brown said. 


Nets exercise options for Mason Plumlee, Sergey Karasev
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:18 am ET) The Nets exercised third-year options on center Mason Plumlee and forward Sergey Karasev Friday, the team announced. The decision will keep both players in Brooklyn through the 2015-16 season, and both players have team options for their fourth seasons in 2016-17.

Plumlee appeared in 70 games as a rookie and was surprisingly effective, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in just 18.2 minutes per game. He shot 65.9 percent from the field and road his success to an appearance on Team USA's gold medal-winning FIBA World Cup appearance.

Karasev appeared in just 22 games after the Cavaliers made him the 19th overall pick in last year's draft. Karasev was acquired by the Nets in a three-team deal in July. 


Magic guard Victor Oladipo out indefinitely with facial fracture
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:44 am ET) Magic guard Victor Oladipo has been making progress in his recovery from a knee sprain, but was already uncertain for the team's season opener Tuesday. Friday he received more bad news, as the team announced he is out indefinitely with a facial fracture and will almost certainly miss the start of the regular season.

The injury occurred during practice Thursday, when he took an elbow to the face. He will undergo surgery Saturday, the team announced, and at this point it is not clear how long the injury is expected to keep Oladipo out or who might step into the starting lineup for him. Evan Fournier and Maurice Harkless have both filled in at shooting guard in the preseason, and seem to be the top contenders.

Oladipo managed to avoid injury almost entirely last season, as he averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 80 games en route to a second place finish in Rookie of the Year.
