Week 14 Fantasy Trade Value Chart

by | Fantasy Writer
  •  

As we reach the halfway point of the season, I retooled the trade chart a bit and added some players that have received 10-day contracts, and others who have shined over the last three weeks. Guys like Kendall Marshall, Darren Collison, D.J. Augustin, Ryan Kelly, Jodie Meeks, John Henson and Terrence Jones should all be treated as solid trade chips, especially if you're lacking depth.

LeBron James was also dethroned from the top spot by Kevin Durant, and that should be no surprise. Durant has been filthy since Russell Westbrook underwent knee surgery in late December. Since Westbrook's departure, Durant is averaging 36.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.4 steals while shooting 52.4 percent from the field, and 39.8 percent from downtown over 15 games (as of Saturday). This should serve as another reminder that we all would love to trade for an elite talent like James and Durant, but the price is always unreasonably high, and it typically never happens.

Disgruntled players (Andrew Bynum, Metta World Peace and Andre Miller), and injured players (Eric Bledsoe and Ryan Anderson) have been removed from this installment of the trade chart. Keep an eye on where Bynum and Miller land.

I'd also like to take the time and offer you some great buy-low trade candidates to get you going for the final months of the Fantasy season. We've reached the point where Fantasy owners may have grown impatient with Miami's season-long maintenance program with Dwyane Wade, making him the 17th most traded player last week.

As of Saturday, Wade has played in 31 of Miami's 44 games this season, which means he's only played in approximately 70 percent of the games. But what has driven owners crazy is that there hasn't been much of a pattern with his days of rest, which may have already cost some owners in head-to-head formats. Though his scoring has been down to its lowest since his first season out of Marqutte, some may not realize Wade has remained relatively productive when healthy, averaging 18.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game this season. In fact, his 54.0 percent shooting -- and 42.1 percent from downtown -- are a career-best, granted he has taken less shots. He is averaging 20.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.9 steals per 36 minutes, which is nearly identical to last season's numbers (outside of PPG). Over the last five weeks, Wade has gone from being started in 90 percent of CBSSports.com standard league to just 48 percent in Week 13 (Jan. 20-26).

Another player that has been often traded as of late is Ricky Rubio, which doesn't make too much sense because he's never been a prolific scorer. Rubio was only limited to 57 games last season, averaging 12.9 points on 36.0 percent shooting from the field and 23.3 percent from 3-point land. This season, he has played 42 games but his scoring has taken a dip, as he's averaging a career-low 9.8 points on 35.4 percent shooting, and a career-best 36.6 percent from downtown. In addition, Rubio has also remained somewhat productive outside of his scoring, as he is on pace for career bests in assists (9.4), boards (5.3) and steals (3.1). It's also worth noting that 23-year-old Spaniard still has a ton of room for improvement, and has never played more than 57 games in a season. Barring an injury, he'll easily break that this season.

So what can you get for Wade and Rubio? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here are some trades that went down involving Hawes in actual CBSSports.com leagues.

Dwyane Wade and Greg Monroe for Andre Drummond and Tyreke Evans: This is a perfect example of an owner overreacting. Evans hasn't necessarily been the healthiest of players in Fantasy and has only played six more games than Wade. I'd give the edge to Wade and Monroe here, especially if you have another option to replace the rebounds you'll lose with Drummond.

Ricky Rubio for Rudy Gay: This is a trade that I actually don't have much of an issue with. Although his shooting percentage has improved, Gay's rebounds have taken a dip since he joined Sacramento. He averaged 19.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists while shooting 38.8 percent from the field through 18 games with Toronto. In 21 games with Sacramento, Gay has scored 20.1 points on 52.3 percent shooting from the field. He has also averaged 4.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists over that span.

Dwyane Wade for Derrick Favors: This is another deal with which I don't have many issues, especially if you have the frontcourt depth to replace Favors, and vice-versa. Favors had been dealing with a hip injury last week, but did not miss much playing time. Favors would only get the slight edge because of health, but I'd give this transaction a push.

Jonas Jerebko will be part of Pistons' 10-man rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:24 pm ET) Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy indicated Wednesday forward Jonas Jerebko will be part of a 10-man rotation this season.

"We'll play at least nine on a nightly basis but probably 10 a lot, based on the way Jonas has played in September and in camp," Van Gundy said after Wednesday's morning practice, per the team's official website. "I've been really happy (with him). Nobody put more time in here this summer than Jonas did. Because of his play with the national team in years past, he's never really been able to devote as much time to his own development and his own game. He's gotten stronger. He's in tremendous shape.

"I think the key to Jonas -- and we talked about this early on -- is he has to get back to being the guy he was when he first came into the league, that hungry guy playing with incredible energy, trying to make his spot. What we've seen in September, he looks like a guy who is committed to being a high-energy guy."


D.J. Stephens added to Pelicans' training camp roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:34 pm ET) The Pelicans added guard/forward D.J. Stephens to the training camp roster, according to The Times-Picayune. Stephens appeared in three games for the Bucks in 2013-14, averaging 2.3 points and 1.7 rebounds.

Josh McRoberts expects to be ready by Heat season opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:31 pm ET) Heat forward Josh McRoberts will not play in Wednesday's scrimmage due to a toe injury, according to the Sun-Sentinel. McRoberts, who had toe surgery in the offseason, said he has dealt with the issue for years.

"I've needed surgery for a couple years," McRoberts said. "We kind of figured out last year before the season started. I knew right when the playoffs ended, so it was something I had planned for."

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the Heat are just being cautious to avoid McRoberts aggravating the injury. However, McRoberts expects to be ready by the season opener in late October.

"I'm just kind of easing back into things," McRoberts said. "It takes time to recover from something like this. I'm just trying not to overdo it."


Heat forward Chris Andersen working on jump shot
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) Heat forward Chris Andersen is spending extra time after practice during training camp to work on jumpers from the elbow and baseline, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Andersen is putting in the extra work because the Heat feel he can be used in more than just pick-and-roll situations.

"To step out and have that confidence to shoot the 15-footer, a lot of people haven't seen it or don't expect it," Andersen said. "This year, [coach Erik Spoelstra] says he's going to implement it into the game plan. I look forward to getting that opportunity."


Norris Cole looking to become a scoring threat for Heat
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:43 pm ET) Heat guard Norris Cole said he wants to become more of a scoring threat this season, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"We had so many playmakers [last year] that there were times I deferred to let those guys make the plays," Cole said. "They were great at it…. But I also I saw [plays] where I could have been more aggressive to attack."

The Heat are expected to have more balanced scoring in 2014-15 since LeBron James is no longer on the roster.

"He's gotten better individually for sure," guard Dwayne Wade said. "He had a hell of a summer working out and getting prepared. Defensively, he's a monster. The next wave for him is how to be effective as a point guard and effective as a scoring guard. He's going to have to figure out the perfect way to do that. It's not always easy for guys but if he can figure it out he can be very dangerous for us."


Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge expected to attempt more 3-pointers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:35 pm ET) Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts expects power forward LaMarcus Aldridge to attempt more than the 15 3-pointers he took last season during the 2014-15 campaign, according to The Oregonian. However, it doesn't appear Aldridge will become a 3-point specialist any time soon.

"This summer, I worked on it a lot more, so we'll see this season," he said. "If it's there, I'll take it. I'm not going to force it at all."


DeMar DeRozan feels he can play 40 minutes a game for Raptors
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(1:16 pm ET) Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan said he spent a lot of time in the offseason working on his ball-handling skills in order to make him an even more dangerous player in 2014-15, according to the Toronto Sun.

"I kind of wanted to tighten up on a lot of things I didn’t feel comfortable with last year," DeRozan said. "I got a lot stronger, I really worked on my conditioning. … I could probably play a 40-minute game (now).

"I was trying to be more ambidextrous, somewhat, try to get more comfortable with my off hand, finishing with my off hand, doing a lot of little things that probably go unnoticed. I’m just trying to find new challenges, honestly, within myself to find something else to get better."


Jazz center Enes Kanter gets green light to attempt more 3-pointers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) Jazz center Enes Kanter has attempted just three 3-pointers over his first three seasons in the NBA. However, Kanter said he has finally been given the green light to start shooting more often from long range, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

"I’m rehabbing in Chicago and coach Quin [Snyder] came to visit me and he said, ‘You know you’re going to shoot some 3s this year,’" Kanter said. "I was just shocked that the first time he met me, he give me that confidence. It means a lot."


Raptors expect Jonas Valanciunas to be 'more involved' on offense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:01 pm ET) Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas said he spent part of the summer working with former NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon, according to the Toronto Sun.

"I worked a lot this summer. I was working out with Hakeem with a running coach, so I think that’s going to help me out a lot, especially in the low post," Valanciunas said. "He’s one of the greatest players. He moves fantastic, so I want to get something from him and I want to use something that he taught me."

The work with Olajuwon could pay dividends for Valanciunas since his teammates are expecting him to have a bigger role on offense this season.

"We have to start games off (feeding Valanciunas in the post), we need him, we’re going to put some pressure on him to score the ball for us," guard Kyle Lowry said. "We can’t just do all guard-oriented types of things. We have to make sure he’s more involved and have to put a little pressure on him to score the ball."


Manu Ginobili has no restrictions as Spurs camp opens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been a full participant in practice to open training camp and has not dealt with any lingering issues after being diagnosed with a stress fracture of the fibula days after the NBA Finals last season, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

"(I've done) everything," Ginobili said after Tuesday's practice. "There is a point when the practice gets too long or too rough when Pop (coach Gregg Popovich) gives me a little extra rest, but I have not been told, 'You can't do this.'

"Maybe related to my conditioning, I am a little behind, but I'm actually very happy with what I've been doing and how I'm playing, considering the summer I had. Not bad."
