Player Outlook

With Brook Lopez's injury issues, it seemed like Mason Plumlee might end up the future of the Nets' center position heading into last season. Then Lopez stayed healthy and turned in an absolutely dominant second half of the season, while Plumlee failed to live up to expectations in an up-and-down second season that ultimately led to him being shipped off to Portland. With LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez leaving via free agency, this is a great opportunity for Plumlee to turn things around, especially with one of the best pick-and-roll point guards in the league running with him. He still averaged 14.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 2.6 combined blocks and steals per-36 minutes, so there is real breakout potential here if Plumlee can earn a big enough role. He should be worth snagging in the latter half of the draft as a No. 2 center in all Fantasy formats.

Latest News
  • Mason Plumlee is expected to serve as the Trail Blazers' starting center to open the regular season, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.After an offseason of roster overhaul, the Trail Blazers are set to unveil a retooled frontcourt that is expected to lean heavily on Plumlee and Miles Leonard, whose differing skill sets should mesh well together. The sweet-shooting Leonard should give the Blazers even more floor spacing than they previously enjoyed when mid-range specialist LaMarcus Aldridge was in the fold, while Plumlee fills the role of the more traditional rim-protecting big man.Noah Vonleh and Ed Davis also figure to factor into the rotation, but Plumlee should be on tap for a career-high total in minutes regardless of which combinations of players coach Terry Stotts opts to deploy. Through two preseason games, Plumlee has posted averages of 7.5 points (on 63.6 percent shooting), 6.5 rebounds, and two assists in 23.1 minutes per contest.

  • The Nets will trade center Mason Plumlee to the Trail Blazers, Yahoo Sports is reporting. Plumlee, who has been used as trade bait by the Nets as of late, will go to Portland in exchange for point guard Steve Blake. The Nets will also send second-round pick Pat Connaughton to the Blazers.

  • The Nets are dangling center Mason Plumlee as a trade chip in an attempt to move up in the draft, per the New York Daily News. Plumlee was once considered a potential standout in a league featuring more mobile, athletic big men.

He averaged just eight minutes per game in the playoffs and took only three shots.

  • 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.
