Sleeper:
Jerebko

Most likely to surprise:
Daye

Most likely to disappoint:
Stuckey

Category specialists:
- Steals: Monroe
- Threes: Daye

Things to consider:
- the more open backcourt if Hamilton is dealt away
- how the logjam at PG will weigh down the values of Stuckey, Knight and Bynum
- the development of Daye and Jerebko
