Waiver Wire Pickups
Let's get to the players you should consider picking up if they are available in your league:
Bruce Brown and Svi Mykhailiuk are set to take on bigger workloads following the buyout of Reggie Jackson. With Detroit short on true point guards, Brown should slide into playmaking duties, which makes him a speculative add in all leagues. Coach Dwane Casey has stated that Mykailiuk will play some point guard, which makes him worth a pickup in 12-team leagues. With KAT set to miss at least the next two weeks, Juancho Hernangomez, James Johnson, and Naz Reid are all worth an add respectively in 12-team leagues. Since being traded to the Timberwolves, Hernangomez is averaging 15 points, 6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and low-end stock stats while playing 30 minutes per game. In the last game before the All-Star Break, Johnson had 5 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks in 32 minutes. Johnson can be relied on for elite 3-and-D stats. Reid has been averaging 11.3 points, 6 rebounds, and 1.7 3-pointers over the last two weeks. He offers very little stats outside of those three categories, but the fact that he started last Friday night makes him worth a speculative add in ALL leagues. With the uncertain futures of Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes, Jabari Parker becomes very interesting. Parker was traded to the Sacramento Kings before the trade deadline and he should step into big minutes after the All-Star Break. At the very least, he should have solid value in points leagues. Malik Monk has been ON FIRE over the last two weeks. Before the All-Star break, Monk was averaging 15.6 points, 4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and low-end stocks stats while playing 29 minutes per game. He is worth owning and starting in all leagues while he's hot. Over the past two weeks, Coby White has averaged 11.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.3 steals while playing 31 minutes per game. The Chicago Bulls have every incentive to play him big minutes down the stretch. Since the trade deadline passed, Thon Maker is averaging 14 points, 6 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.5 blocks while playing 28 minutes. With Drummond out of Detroit, Maker is in line for big minutes and can help your fantasy team in points, rebounds, and blocks. With reports of the Cleveland Cavaliers wanting Kevin Porter Jr. to be both a scorer and facilitator, he deserves a speculative pickup in ALL leagues. The Cavaliers seem destined to fully unleash him as they build towards the future. Lastly, with Damian Lillard set to miss "at least the next three or four games", Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. are both worth a look in DEEP leagues.
The following players are producing Top 100 value over the past month. Consider adding these players while they're hot!
Jerami Grant (Top 10)
Danuel House Jr. (Top 25)
Josh Hart (Top 50)
Trevor Ariza (Top 50)
Seth Curry (Top 75)
