Miller signs with the Trail Blazers

  • Louis Williams is the biggest winner here.  He’s got the starting point guard job now and will see way more than the 23:41 per night he saw last season.  Williams is a surefire scorer, but shoots a low percentage from the field.  Look for about 15 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists per game from Williams, with a low field goal percentage.
  • Jrue Holiday, the rookie point guard who is now the team’s second in command at the point, is still probably too raw to make any kind of fantasy impact this season.  He’ll get more minutes than he would have if Miller had re-signed, but don’t get your hopes up too high for Holiday.
  • Look for the rest of the 76ers roster to hurt a bit from Miller’s departure.  Williams isn’t as much of a distributor as Miller was, and with two green point guards the 76ers’ offense will be a bit rough around the edges.
