Fantasy Notebook: The Ones That Got Away

ESPN-Hoops

A couple of weeks ago, we took a look at how a couple of former Cavalier point guards — Jarrett Jack and Mo Williams — were fairing in fantasy this year.

Not to be outdone by the attention to Jack and Williams, several other former Cavaliers are coming out to join the 2014-15 Fantasy Roster Viability Party, specifically former backup big men Tyler Zeller and Marreese Speights.

Speights Likely Gone

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Mo Speights, baller extraordinaire!

-The Morning-Journal thinks Marreese Speights is gone after this season, which is probably the case. For more evidence, note that Byron Scott is still starting Tyler Zeller over the former Grizzly. Too bad. I like Speights a lot, and his propensity to fall in love with his jump shot is offset a little by his mean streak and gritty offensive rebounding.

-Greg Oden actually sat in Dan Gilbert’s seats at the Memphis game, which is probably a good sign if you’re one of those people that wants the Cavs to sign him, and a bad sign if you’re not.

-Is Tristan Thompson an MIP candidate? Probably not; that award is a joke if it doesn’t go to Paul George or Larry Sanders.

-In case you missed it, WFNY has some great-as-usual draft analysis for your perusal. Come on, Otto Porter!

Chris Grant is really, really tall. Could he back up Tristan for 15-20 MPG?

Lots of links and goodies await. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

– The Cavs have discussed trades involving Marreese Speights, but don’t seem interested by the picks being proffered thus far. I’m all for trading Speights if a 16-22 type pick can be had. But as every NBA fan (and Daryl Morey) knows, you can never have enough picks/young players.

– Greg Oden is putting the brakes on a contract until this summer. This slightly reduces the Cavs’ chances of signing him, but the smart money still has Oden playing in Wine and Gold next year.

– Should the Cavaliers sign Donte Greene? They appear to be interested.

– Jeremy Pargo has found a home in Philadelphia for the rest of the season. Good luck, Jeremy. The memories of the two or three alley-oops you threw down in garbage time will live forever in our hearts, as will those of the 28 points you dropped the night after Kyrie got injured.

UPDATE:

– Also, this Bill Fitch interview should be of interest to the Cavs historian.
