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 Preview: Philadelphia 76′ers (9/11/10)

The Sixers experimented with Eddie Jordan and his Princeton offense last season and it was a total disaster.  They brought in Doug Collins this year to try and fix the mess of 2009 and many roles could change on this team.  It looks like Jrue Holiday will start at PG with rookie Evan Turner running with him at SG.  Andre Iguodala should get the SF spot and Elton Brand should start at PF.  Center is going to be a battle in camp.  I’ve seen some rumor of Brand trying to play center with Thaddeus Young at PF, but we’ll see.  Post your article comments over on the Fantasy Basketball Daily Facebook Page.

Projected Depth Chart
PG:   Jrue Holiday, Lou Williams
SG:   Evan Turner, Willie Green, Jodie Meeks
SF:   Andre Iguodala, Andres Nocioni, Jason Kapono
PF:   Elton Brand, Thaddeus Young, Jason Smith
C:    Marreese Speights, Spencer Hawes
