Week 18 Fantasy Trade Value Chart
The NBA trade deadline might have passed, but we're still wheeling and dealing in Fantasy. Our Igor Mello breaks down some offers in his Week 18 Fantasy Trade Value Chart.
Trade season has officially come to an end, and although we didn't see any big-name players shipped off to new teams, owners should be concerned with the new roles of some mid-tier players, as well as with teams that are ready start focusing on their lottery chances moving forward. It may be time to part ways with several players who were dealt before the trade deadline.
Pau Gasol , C, Lakers: Gasol was the face of this trade season before Indiana's move at the buzzer. The Lakers and Suns failed to come to terms on a deal before the deadline, which left Gasol in Los Angeles for the remainder of the season. The Lakers are in rebuilding mode and Gasol is expected to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, which to me, suggests that any injury concern could keep him out for a decent amount of time. For example, a recent groin injury kept him out for seven games, including the All-Star break. Had Gasol been playing for a contender (like Phoenix), he probably would've rushed back to action. Although Gasol is enjoying a bounce-back season, averaging a double-double -- 17.0 points and 10.2 rebounds -- through 44 games, I wouldn't hesitate to trade him in Fantasy.
Spencer Hawes , C, Cavaliers: Hawes' new role with the Cavaliers will prove to be a tricky one for Fantasy owners, especially early on. He will likely get the starting nod while Anderson Varejao is sidelined with a back injury, but Fantasy owners should keep an eye on the situation. Varejao will probably bump Hawes down to the bench, which will weaken his Fantasy value. I'd be in a rush to trade Hawes as soon as possible, even if he plays well early on as a starter.
Evan Turner , F/ Lavoy Allen , F, Pacers: Turner was struggling as of late, shooting just 37.3 percent from the floor over his last five games before the trade, which is approximately five percent below his season average. However, that won't be the greatest concern for him in Indiana. Turner was a starter in Philadelphia, so his role will significantly change coming off the bench for Lance Stephenson in Indiana. Expect his minutes and points per game to drop moving forward, which will significantly hurt his trade stock. As for Allen, he wasn't really Fantasy relevant in Philadelphia, so don't expect him to do much in Indiana.
Danny Granger , F, 76ers: It's not as if Granger was making a huge impact off the bench for Indiana this season, so the trade wasn't as surprising as some made it out to be. Granger, owned in 74 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, was off to a slow start in his first season back from knee surgery, averaging only 8.3 points, 3.6 boards and 1.1 assists through 29 games. 2011-12 Granger isn't walking through that door, but he could bounce back in the second half of the season, as long as he stays in Philadelphia. The 76ers play a fast-paced, high-scoring style of basketball, which could be what Granger needs to get back on track. However, there has been talk of a potential buyout, which would leave a chance for a contender to swoop in and sign him for the rest of the season. Keep an eye on his status for now. If he stays with the 76ers, his trade stock will increase a bit, but if he heads to a contender, expect the same we've seen out of him in the first half of the season.
Byron Mullens , C, 76ers: My colleague Chris Towers said it best on deadline day: as gross as it sounds, Mullens is worth adding in most 12-team formats. Mullens was barely used by the Clippers this season, appearing in 27 of Los Angeles' first 56 games this season, averaging 2.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.2 minutes per contest. The 76ers shipped Lavoy Allen to Indiana, which leaves Mullens as the starting center for the remainder of the season. As we mentioned before, the 76ers are a fast-paced team on offense, so he'll get a fair share of opportunities to significantly increase his numbers, giving him some decent trade value moving forward.
Tobias Harris , F/ Glen Davis , C, Magic: More than anything that happened during the trade deadline, the buyout of Davis' contract is probably going to impact Fantasy owners the most. Before he combined for just two points in his last two games in Orlando, Davis played reasonably well leading up to the All-Star break. He was averaging 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting 45.3 percent from the floor in 45 games before the trade. Unfortunately, he'll now latch on with a contender (most likely with the Clippers) and will likely come off the bench, practically killing whatever trade value he had alone. Like the Mullens situation in Philadelphia, Harris will see a significant boost in his improved role with the Magic, which makes his trade value as high as it's ever been this season. After averaging 4.9 points in the first half of last season with Milwaukee, Harris was traded to Orlando and showed signs of consistency. He averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds while doubling up nine times through 27 games last season with Orlando. He is averaging 13.9 points and 7.5 boards with just six double-doubles through 35 games this season. He'll benefit the most from the departure of Davis. Expect a similar second half out of Harris again this season.
