Fantasy Basketball Daily News and Notes (12/11/11)

Jeff Green (BOS) – Re-signed with the Celtics.   This doesn’t help his fantasy value at all since he’ll probably shift to backing up Paul Pierce at SF.   The Celtics just brought in Brandon Bass to backup Kevin Garnett at PF.

Brandon Bass (BOS) – Signed with the Celtics and will backup Kevin Garnett at PF.  He’s also got some competition for minutes against the newly acquired Chris Wilcox.  His fantasy value is a little lower in Boston than it was in Orlando although there is a chance that Kevin Garnett might see more time at center, thereby providing more PF minutes for Bass.

Glen Davis (ORL) – Traded to the Magic where he will compete for minutes with Ryan Anderson.  He should have about the same fantasy value in Orlando as he did in Boston, unless Dwight Howard gets traded, then his value might rise.

Fantasy Basketball 2010-2011 Team Report: New York Knicks (9/10/10)

After several years of complete destruction in order to clear the cap space necessary to land LeBron James, the Knicks came up empty and had to settle for adding only Amare Stoudemire.    Stoudemire is still a good catch, but the Knicks don’t gain much since they lost David Lee, a power forward that was already a fantasy star in his own right.  The Knicks brought in Raymond Felton to run the point and Kelenna Azubuike to challenge for the starting shooting guard spot.  Danilo Gallinari will likely start at SF, Stoudemire at PF and Ronny Turiaf at C, however there are many possible lineup combinations and we won’t really get any answers until camp gets going in October.

Projected Depth Chart
PG – Raymond Felton, Toney Douglas
SG – Kelenna Azubuike, Wilson Chandler, Roger Mason, Andy Rautins
SF – Danilo Gallinari, Bill Walker, Landry Fields
PF – Amare Stoudemire, Anthony Randolph
C – Ronny Turiaf, Timofey Mozgov
Coach – Mike D’Antoni
