Waiver Watch

Posted by Erik on November 27, 2007

Keep an eye out for these guys.

Juan Carlos Navarro – The Grizzlies are erratic, but JCN seems like he’s getting some good PT over at Memphis. He’ll give you 3’s, points, and some assists, but he does tend to turn the ball over a bit too much for comfort.

Jamario Moon – A starter at Toronto, will give you some decent defensive numbers and he’s got some room for improvement. He’s worth taking a stab at, if he’s still on the wires.

Marko Jaric – He’s emerging as the guy who’s pulling the T-Wolves’ offense together. He’s had respectable backcourt experience back when he was with the Clippers. Look to him to dish the ball, but pick him up for his defensive contributions – his steals – which has been his long time specialty.

Brandon Bass – Watch his PT. He’s an SF/PF over at Dallas, and with Diop and Dampier not really cutting it over at the C slot, Dirk tends to slide over there and Brandon tends to take up decent minutes over at the 4 spot. He won’t give you much in terms of points, but his blks and rebs are worth exploring the possibility of picking him up, especially if you’re in a deep league.

DeShawn Stevenson – Picking up Antonio Daniels when Gilbert Arenas went down was a no-brainer – duh! Keep an eye out for DeShawn’s production as Washington’s role players will be tasked to step up their production to fill the void left by the wake of Agent Zero’s injury.

Travis Outlaw – I’m completely convinced that as long as the trend of Channing Frye’s lack of productivity continues, it will be more likely that Travis will eventually earn more minutes and, hopefully, *crosses fingers* get the starting PF job as LaMarcus slides over to the C spot for the Blazers.

    Antoine Walker – The Forgotten Fat Man on the end of the T-Wolves’ bench is getting playing time because of injuries tio the kiddies. He’s still shamelessly hoisting shots, but he’s on one of his patented short-run hot streaks and should be useful for a few games. Watch for the big clunker and ditch him when the turkey legs and pumpkin pie hit his flabby belly.
